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.
It derives from the French "Grande" as in "big", referring to the Island of Britain as the larger part or Brittany
'Great' became part of the official title when Scotland joined Britain (being England and Wales) in 1707. Before that it was only occasionally used, when it was necessary to distinguish Britain from Brittany, mostly in Latin or French. So 'derives' is not correct IMHO.
Right now, we're moving ever closer to merchantilism and "One Dollar, One Vote"
No-one, not even dumb Americans, would fall for that. Fortunately, some genii at Chicago have come up with a saleable alternative:
2)Parental issues, usually their parents are drunks, or pay zero attention to them.
Yup, or the wrong kind of attention. In primary school I once walked home with a kid with nascent bullying tendencies (I was much bigger than him). As he walked in his back door I heard his mother launch into a rabid sweary tirade at him for no reason I could see. So he was being bullied at home and just doing the same thing at school.
a fifth to quarter of the posters are borderline sociopaths
That would be consistent with the population at large; 20% authoritarian followers, 5% social dominators according to Altemeyer.
Commodity money can also change in value when the supply of (or demand for) the commodity changes. This can be naturally arbitrary, or due to market manipulation by large holders. If the commodity cannot be produced fast enough to match wealth creation there will be deflation. The gold standard era was not devoid of economic crises. The tally-stick era was much more stable, probably due to the broader range of commodities it employed and the lack of fractional reserve shenanigans.
Fiat money should be adjusted to keep prices stable, without worrying about an underlying thing. This does mean it is open to adjustment for other reasons. Good governance is the answer to that. How to get it is left as an exercise for the reader
Not read von Mises directly, but I know he is of the Austrian School. Anyone who is hostile to the very idea of government will dislike fiat money. Personally, I prefer to be ruled by an accountable government than by a private bank, or worse.
