All my whistleblowers are named Eric.
All you need is a heat source; a candle will do in a pinch.
Mind you, in your unlikely world devoid of electricity, there wouldn't be much *point* to soldering electronics anyway.
Oh, don't I know it. The government pulls out all the stops to help these so-called "threatened" and "endangered" species when they couldn't give two craps about the problems of a regular stiff like me. It's fascism, I tell ya.

Sorry if it sounded overly negative. I assure you that was entirely not our intent; in fact, we're just trying to make the world a great place for great people. Please forward any comments or complaints to my offices at the NSDAP/RPA. We appreciate your input!
You forgot ginger culture. Damn gingers.
Except I'm waiting for these guys to get sued into oblivion for copying Facebook's amazing groundbreaking invention.
The "workaround" is just doing it without telling anybody. You will never be able to prove a thing.
Because, of course, European telecoms are staffed entirely by intelligence agents of unquestionable loyalty.
Because they're trying to maintain their quality.
(Seriously, though, they actually don't seal their hard drives. Hard drives typically have a small hole in the casing with a extremely fine dust- and moisture-proof filter attached. It allows the drive to equalize its pressure with the environment and reduces the mechanical strain on the housing and seals.)
"dad...you seem really smart...why in the world did you decide to be a programmer and sit behind a computer 10 hours a day instead of doing something cool?"
Because we knew that someone, someday, would create this.
We could always compromise and call it Ockham's Razor...
I know they're cheating when they use names like 001l0l1O1l, they don't want to be reported.
That was a flaw with early experiments, but we've since worked it out. With our updated business model, we only provide you with one monkey and typewriter in this universe. At the same time, in each of infinite parallel universes, the parallel 'we' give the parallel 'you' a monkey and typewriter as well. Each typewriter is equipped with a lovingly crafted and painstakingly entangled transceiver to broadcast and monitor an infinity of random typing, listening and waiting for your answer to ephemerally cross its antenna.
Great news! It's statistically certain that one of the infinite monkeys has already typed the answer you seek. However, due to information propagation delays, it may take between zero and infinite time to reach your universe. Rest assured, though, it's on its way. While you wait, please enjoy your monkey. And typewriter.
Thank you for your business!
Yes, it seems more likely the iPhone 6 will finally support 10BASE2.
...it just means I got way too drunk last night.
