That would imply the cop knew more than just seeing a car that was tethered to a mains. What part being plugged in implies foul play afoot? If he had received a complaint or some such, I might see it differently.
Ah yes, and a car plugged in is by default stealing power? That seems like a pretty flimsy reason to search a car. "Hold it there sir, you are eating a hamburger, I must ascertains it's not stolen!"
So, cops should search everything everywhere every time just in case there is something illegal going on? That sounds like a police state I'd rather not live in.
Having a preference does not necessarily mean the exclusion of the other. I fall into the prefer printed book category (though for a different age demographic) but I own a good number of both. I prefer printed books but I have been working on reducing the size of my physical library because ebooks take up less space and I want fewer physical possessions to worry about.
Despite my preference for one, I use the other more but use both quite a lot.
Presumably not as much of a problem in North America since no-one walks anywhere.
I walk to the greengrocer's and I do not use a cart. I find a hand basket to serve as a good measure of how heavy my groceries will be to carry home. I do seem to be in the minority though.
If you only make phone calls and disable everything else then all you are left with is tracking, which happens on the other end anyhow.
And historically, in Slashdot's home country, landlines have been one to a house and have had unlimited minutes.
I'm not sure in which history they had unlimited minutes, but I recall paying $0.10 a minute except to my local calling area, which was basically about ten exchanges covering my town and a couple of adjacent ones.
Those games have been static for a long time, many binary releases of common software changes weekly. Doing the work once is different than doing the work weekly.
I'm glad I'll be dead in a few years or a few decades, because frankly it means not having to give half a fuck about the direction everyone is going in.
You could just stop giving a fuck now and live a more present life.
You should maybe remove the countries not hat list that are not actually monarchies, if that's the point you are trying to make.
I understand you being against TV, but being against books!? What medium do you use for learning?
Most attendees didn’t expect “100x cooler” to translate into “we’ll post spam in your feed as soon as the RFID badge senses that you’ve entered the show", but that seems to be what happened."

More accurately, it
Not here it isn't. As per RCW 46.61.755:
(1) Every person riding a bicycle upon a roadway shall be granted all of the rights and shall be subject to all of the duties applicable to the driver of a vehicle by this chapter, except as to special regulations in RCW 46.61.750 through 46.61.780 and except as to those provisions of this chapter which by their nature can have no application.
RCW 46.61.750 through 46.61.780 cover:
750 - penalties
755 - the above
758 - required to use hand signals
760 - move use a seat
765 - must not cling to vehicles
770 - must keep as far right as is safe to do so
775 - must not carry anything that requires two hands
780 - lamps and reflector requirements
No where does it permit a bicycle to pass a vehicle that's stopped waiting for traffic on the right side of the vehicle. They could pass on the left if passing were permitted, but not split between lanes (that would be passing on the right of the left lane cars).
Games do not by definition, have a winning state and conversely a losing state. Many do, to be sure. You might want to read up on the philosophy of games a bit. I can recommend Huizing's Homo Ludens as a good starting point. Even of the definitions listed on Wikipedia's entry for Game, many of the definitions do not mention a winning state.
