You really are a monumentally stupid cunt, aren't you?
Couple at-will employment with the fact that health insurance is employer-provided and private insurance is devastatingly expensive, and basically employers can hold employees ransom.
Even if someone does have transferable, marketable skills, it will likely be a number of months before they land a new job and complete enough of the probationary period to qualify for benefits. A broken arm during that period will cost you $10,000 if you're not insured. God forbid you have to deliver a baby, because then you're looking at a six-figure medical bill.
Actually, the guy who bled on the police officers was charged with "destruction of police property," since they couldn't get his blood out of their uniforms.
Over the past couple of weeks, I have finished a few series on Netflix. Each time, after the last episode of the series, I'm treated to a 30-second trailer for the Netflix original Sense8.
Meh. Doesn't bug me at all. If this is all they do, I'm cool with it.
Just imagine a Beowulf cluster of 2005!
With a bit of creative interpretation, it does. For example, you could mimic the beta-decay electrons in nuclear piles:
1. Start out traveling at almost c.
2. Slam into a medium with a refractive index > 1.
For a brief period of time, while your body is being vaporized by the impact, and before Cherenkov radiation robs you of your kinetic energy, you will be traveling faster than light.
I'd say: yes, if you look under the hood. How many of us started with editing save files using hex editor?
Modding, creating bots and cheating (all three often overlap) are a great first step. You learn how games are structured, you learn some scripting (Lua, Python, etc. depending on games), even some AI programming for bots.
Downloading of copyrighted music files is legal in this country, because we pay a tariff on blank media.
However, the tariff only goes to pay for music. Downloading of any other form of copyrighted material is not covered by the tariff. This includes television shows, movies, video games, ebooks, and even audio books.
So you're partially correct, yes. But not totally, and not applicably to what people think of when they talk about downloading these days.
You're kidding, right? They fix cracks in concrete now by injecting hydraulic cement. Exactly the same delivery process, except the crack is then sealed as soon as the cement dries, and it uses an existing, inexpensive substance.
I don't think anyone is complaining that injected hydraulic cement is not strong enough, or doesn't fill all of the gaps.
Here's the actual text of the bylaw:
Il est interdit Ã toute personne de provoquer, dâ(TM)insulter, dâ(TM)injurier, de blasphÃ©mer ou de molester un agent de la paix ou un officier municipal dans lâ(TM)exercice de leurs fonctions.
Constitue une infraction au prÃ©sent article des propos tenus sur Internet ou sur lesrÃ©seaux sociaux.
(rÃg 0556-2015, art.2)
And my attempt at a translation:
It is prohibited for any person to provoke, insult, injure, blaspheme, or molest an agent of peace [officer of the law] or a municipal officer during the exercise of their duties.
It is an infraction under this section for remarks to be made on the Internet or on social networks.
So, the municipality of Granby has made it illegal to say "God damn it, mayor" on Facebook. Honestly, even discounting the online portion of this bylaw, I think it's unreasonable. And I suspect many of you agree. But remember, Quebec (and especially some of the smaller towns in Quebec) are much more devoutly Catholic, with over 70% of the province identifying as RC.
LLVM won't compile Fortran 200x. Intel does provide a Fortran compiler, but it's buggy as shit and poorly supported. GFortran is a high-quality product and an absolute god-send for many in the high-performance computing community.
I would like to select both "Novice" and "Good enough to criticize everyone else."
RTFSummary. It's a voluntary activation by the driver. If you want to speed deliberately, just don't turn it on.
Opt-in, just the way we want it.
Our 2007 manual Civic won't engage cruise control unless the car is in 4th or 5th. In 4th, you can't drive much slower than about 50kph/30mph, and then only if there's no uphills.
Oh, kazam! Andyring is shown up for the lying sack of shit he is!
