Just cut back on projects. Starting with those involving spending money in districts whose politicians work to cripple NASA. Remember, we're coming up to yet another election year and there's no news like bad news to shape the outcomes.
For some reason I have the feeling that most Americans didn't see much of a problem in the spying on other countries.
Nope. Not a bit. Any more than anyone else sees a problem with their country spying on other countries.
Or are you silly enough to believe that YOUR country doesn't spy on other countries?
the main perceived problem was not the spying, but that they didn't filter the domestic data out.
The NSA has a mandate to do FOREIGN signals intelligence gathering. Note that word "foreign", it's important. They do NOT have a legal mandate to violate the Fourth Amendment (it's actually impossible to have such a legal mandate) by doing signals intelligence gathering against American citizens.
And no, foreigners are not protected by the US Constitution when they're outside the USA. If you believe that you should be, I suggest you invoke the US Fourth Amendment (just to see how far it gets you) next time you are arrested in wherever you are.
Who determines what political sites are extreme?
You ran out of a charge on the road, you are just as likely to run out of gas. I think it's easier to find a plugin than a gas station.
Oddly, I've never been anywhere that I had to go more than a hundred miles without passing a few gas stations.
So I think it's unlikely I'll run out of gas at all....
We can now sue the studios for low quality movies.
I mean, I had to endure the low quality of Hollywood for a very, very, very long time. The quality of the movies is so low that it is almost not worth downloading them via TPB. And the fact that they are FullHD does not help either with the overall quality.
Call me back when Roku finally adds support for uPNP and/or DLNA.
OK. Please post your phone number.
I get that poverty in the US is an epidemic, but your 40% and 50% figures seem very inflated. Citation, please?
I live alone and I cook about 5 or 6 times a week. The other 1 or 2 I go to a restaurant (Real one, not fast food) with friends. I spend almost no time on cooking as most of the time I cook the ultimate 'fast food' using a wok.
I bought a Wok cookbook at a second hand store and started cooking. Takes about 10-15 minutes to prepare my dinner (including prep time) and I use fresh vegetables and meat.
For work I prepare salads withe iceberg salad and make 5 of them on the Sunday. The iceberg salad is so it stays fresh. For those 5 I take about 20 minutes to one hour, depending on my mood.
So that is not even 2 hours per week I spend cooking.
The most important part of all this is planning. I started by writing down what I would eat for the whole week and bought accordingly. I now have enough experience that my shopping-list looks like:
2 crops iceberg
5 x for salad (e.g. for 5 days, smoked salmon, shrimps, tuna, mozzarella,
1 chicken filet (Good for 2 or 3 days wok)
1 x fish
1 x veal
1 x pork
1 x bag mixed vegetables for wok
2 x different vegetables
Then if needed different sorts of rice, different sorts of noodles, soya sauce, garlic, coriander, pipe onion, eggs.
I only need to do groceries once per week, so no time loss there either.
To me cooking each day is better then re-heating food. the sole thing that helped me do this was the planning part. Writing down what I was going to eat the coming week. That and buying a book about cooking with a wok and the looking for combinations that would taste good AND are fast to do.
We either want laws or we don't. If you think less government is best, move to Somalia.
There are some laws we can all agree on.
There are some we disagree on.
The fact that I approve of SOME laws in no way implies that I approve of ALL laws.
By the same token, the fact that I disapprove of SOME laws in no way implies that I don't want ANY laws.
I hope that when he gets back to the USofA it will be not by a pardon or by giving him amnesty, but because he is welcomed as a hero.
And if the soaps fail to do anything worthwhile, the manufacturers will just have to remove the "kills bacteria" from the labels in order to continue selling them.
And everyone (including those who currently use anit-bacterial soaps) will continue to use the same brand they always have, because they're used to it.
Please define "temporarily". Is this the temporarily holding your breath or the period Pluto was temporarily called a planet? Or even the temporarily time a copyright is valid?
