To most europeans that sounds utterly stupid. 1 thing is for sure: having less guns leads to less deaths. That's a good thing. Happy I don't live in Texas.
you can own it... but can you carry it openly on the street? My guess would be no. I do know a little about dutch law... and owning a fully functional and battle ready sword is allowed. You don't need a permit or licence for it. But you can't just wear it openly on the street.
I'm not responsible for the site's funding. I AM responsible for the bandwidth I pay for. I'm also responsible for how the site is rendered on my screen. I did not ask for ads, either implicitly or explicitly, and was never asked if I wanted to see ads. Advertising is also an attack vector, so blocking ads is also about my safety.
the site is paid for by putting ads among the content. Luckily, I have taken measures to prevent those ads stealing bandwidth. I have never consented to being shown ads, its purely between the site and the advertiser. The viewer is not part of the deal, so don't bother the viewer with ads, unless he asked for it.
the intention was to show advertising to people. Steal their bandwidth and hide real content without getting approval. The intentions of advertising on the web were never good, they were evil. And all that because some companies want to line their pockets.
Funny? probably some dutchmen at work here. NSB was the dutch nazi party just before and during WW2. In dutch 'NSBer' still means traitor or snitch.
There is already a precedent. German soldiers were tried and sentenced for carrying out orders in the concentration camps.
just stop pointing your camera at me. I don't care if it's showing a red light or not. She was being obnoxious, and wouldn't stop when asked.
if it's grown in a petridish, it's not from a pig, right?
Just to make sure it's not plagiarized ofcourse... because that's piracy too...
solids can leak too. think bucket of sand with a hole in the bottom.
dont swear.. get a referee whistle. works especially well against call centers, as they cannot take off their headphones fast enough.
it sounds like slavery to me, because people are forced to work and do not get any wages. A workforce for the government should be paid at least minimum wage, and not be on welfare which comes with a lot of other restrictions. The system asks a LOT in return for welfare... more than a job, in my dutch experience.
at least in the netherlands, you still can. pulse dialing is still supported.
yes, there's a tax on phones, drives, dvd's... but you only pay the tax once, when you buy the item. You are NOT taxed every time you copy a song from one medium to another. It's not a tax on transfer. it's a tax on devices.
