FF crashes on Kubuntu daily for me, usually when it is just sitting in the background. Thunderbird is the only other program I use which is that crash-prone.
I've actually seen plans where cut wood is dumped to the bottom of the ocean
What a great idea! We could weight it down with gold or uranium or something.
Or we could build furniture, houses or other long lasting useful stuff out of the good timber and use the charcoal made with the rest to improve the soil.
There is a fine documentary on this subject called "China's Web Junkies".
All the young lads (they are all midteens) are put in these boot camps by their parents at great expense. They are not government re-education camps, there is no political angle to these kid's problems. Nor are they hackers of any kind.
The main point to realise is that they are not addicted to the internet as such but to online gaming in particular. And they really do seem to be addicts. Their bragging about regularly playing for 24 or 36 hours straight might seem to be exaggerated but when some of them escape during the film they are quickly recaptured... at the nearest internet cafe.
Aspartame... ant killer
How do you kill ants with aspartame? I was unable to persuade them to eat it.
Thalidomide... give the go ahead to reintroduce it...
IIRC only one isomer of thalidomide does bad things.
The resurgence of poliomyelitis... Lou Gehrig's Disease, ALS, Motor Neurone Disease, Post Polio Residual Paralysis... actually caused by the live polio vaccine
Well, everyone with those very rare diseases certainly had the vaccine. But so did everyone without those diseases, except the ones with polio.
I have read practically everything by Heinlein and "I Will Fear No Evil" is without doubt the worst load of crap he ever wrote, and he wrote a lot of crap towards the end. In fact, after "Stranger" only "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" and "Friday" are worth bothering with. To be fair, he was ill when he wrote it and the publisher wouldn't wait for him to recover enough to fix it up. OTOH it may not have been salvageable. The premise has already been used in at least one movie anyway.
The size and shape of a piece of A7 paper. 74 x 105 mm for a roughly 5" diagonal in a 14:10 aspect ratio. 1280 x 905 pixel resolution would be adequate.
No-one has ever made such a screen...
What would be like RaspPi, but without the USB problem?
Try a cubieboard2. I've run a hard drive off the USB without any problem in Cubian (a version of Debian for cubie).
The US didn't create Israel, the British and French did.
The perfect example of this is Rwanda where the Tutsi's were put in control under British rule and then subjugated the larger Hutu population.
Belgian, not British.
Since the start of the cold war the US has interfered in nations world wide
This makes for interesting reading: US foreign jaunts
Looking back at history, there has never been a shooting war between the Soviet Union and the US. Never.
It seems to me that a major problem here is only releasing once a year.
Odoo is commercial, and Open Source.
As an Odoo user and developer I would be happy with a 'release' every two years or more. I can pull bug fixes from the VCS to keep my current system running.
The 'releases' are for big changes and spiffy new features which require a data 'migration' and code 'porting'. Neither I nor my clients want to be doing that every three months. It is an ERP system not some simple desktop app.

This venture, it seems to me, is just a way to legitimize the payback for services he has already rendered while he was at the NSA. His 'clients' already know who they are, and they will expect to get nothing more concrete for their million per month than his continuing influence (or perhaps silence) in certain matters.
BT owns the copper line going to my house, and it is broken
+1 for Charliemopps. I had the same problem as you; it would work when BT came to test it, but sometime it was shit. After a couple of visits I made the connection with the rain and on their third visit I suggested to the BT guys that they replace my underground wire with an overhead one from the handy pole outside. Problem solved.
[emus] also survive very well after getting shot, apparently, for some reason.
I suspect they are somewhat less resistant to machetes, which is what most miscreants around here will be carrying.
