In some cases pallets or even containers are just not allowed into certain ports after leaving certain ports, increasing the destruction rate. Better to just stop using wood. The plastics are very recyclable.
Many nails are made from steel with too high of carbon content, and are not magnetic.
Steel with too high a carbon content to be magnetic is called stainless, unless it's over 4% and then it's called hypereutectic and it's very difficult to produce and nobody is making nails out of it, just like they aren't making nails out of stainless — especially not for pallets.
Then burn them and drag a magnet through the ashes to collect the nails. Why go through all the effort of removing the nails when you're about to remove the wood?
Of course given the number or lazy, irresponsible assholes in the world
...someone might actually try to carry out your plan, and then destroy their lungs with zinc from galvanized pallet nails from china.
Seems to me like you're both right and both wrong, because pallets aren't going away, but I can see more conveyors being used to move pallets. You're more right than he is, though, because pallets aren't going away.
Quick question... What kind of biscuits? If they are the cheddar ones from Red Lobster I think you wouldn't even need a ravenous anything to not eat every single one.
Fuck, put some shredded cheese and some old bay into some bisquick already, what year is it?
The original Amazon Kindle Touch and the Nook Simple Touch have used this technology for years.
Who told you that? The Nook Simple Touch has a two-point capacitive multitouch display. I've got one right here.
The oldest tech like this had straight beams and receptors on the other side and was totally digital, but now they can read reflections, so in theory they can have resolution higher than the resolution of the scanning grid.
I remember seeing this technology used on a screen at a zoo or maybe marine world, something like that, when I was a child. I'm pretty sure it's older than 20 years.
Right. You do NOT fiddle with it while driving. However, the same can be said of regular car buttons.
No, it cannot. Regular buttons stay in the same place all the time, and you can feel for them while not looking at them. You can't feel for touch controls.
Fact is, the tesla controls are LESS bothersome to me than the old buttons.
Fact is, that's only true if you take your eyes off the road, and keep them that way until you're done.
Hotbot was the best. I still miss it, because Google sucks.
If you still miss it, you stopped using it because it became useless. And that's what happened to it before it was shut down, because it had no meaningful concept of relevance. It just searched for your terms and produced whatever were the first results. It didn't try to do anything clever on your behalf, which is now necessary due to the size of the interwebs. It just returned pages and pages of too-similar results.
But then the question just becomes "where can I buy a vernier caliper?". It's not like they had amazon.com either, and I doubt it was in the Sears & Roebuck catalog.
It was in the Sears & Roebuck catalog. The fashion today is to underestimate just how great S&R was back in the day, because Sears is so godawful terrible today, but you really could get pretty much anything from S&R. You could get a doorknob, for example, and a house to go with it.
So is Hotel Management, now sometimes known as Hospitality and Hotel Management.
Hotels are older than schools. Maybe the hoteliers should teach the schools a thing or two, such as how to run within budget. Hint: reduce administrative staff, everyone needs to do actual work
No reason to use old phones - the newer standards are much more efficient at spectrum usage.
No reason? How will their citizens afford new phones?
Cellular is pretty much the only reasonable option given the lack of infrastructure. It can be installed completely wireless, aside from power. And finally, an answer to where the old phones can go.
replacing rockets with prayer
This is almost a good idea, but you've got it backwards. If you convince christians that sending their prayers to heaven on rocket casings will make them more interesting to jesus then you'll have all the funding you can use.
