Hunter clubs members were allowed to have rifles. You needed (actually still need) to pass same medical test as for drivers license. Cannot be mentally ill, cannot be alcoholic.
Without hunter clubs it want possible to contro animal population. Rabbits, wolves, foxes are pretty devastating to farms. This apply to country.

In cities (cities in Ex/Ussr are smaller but densly populated) citizens didnt own firearms.

If you dont aim to be in some executive role / tv star / some very VVVVIP then dont dream about USSR kind of communism.

Humans are born to live free. It is impossible to be creative if you are totally controlled. In USSR you couldnt just decide to change work type. You could not decide easily, ok Ill be a an artist now. You had to learn before - in Academy Of Arts. And its rather hard if you have reached some age. And all your work would need to pass censorship.
Most tasks had very tight time schedules. Many couldnt cope with that and started to drink heavily. Why do you think russians drank/ still drink so much?  Because of good life?
Medicine was better then (for poor people). Every one was "fixed" when needed. Now it is very expensive.

Communism does not work without brainwash, censorship and good wall between free world and communists. Cause when you see what you are not allowed to and you want this very bad. Then leaders have to give you that or have to keep saying that all other world is wicked.
Just like Putin is doing right now.

That would be very efficient way of scam for some busineses. Hey, look at my video. I think that sausage weights less than advertised 100 g. And Not everyone can draw from memory and post on facebook some ugly picture when you open your mouth an put food in it. But with google glass it is no brainer. Especially if at next table sits some celebrity.

While typical long-duration bursts last from a few seconds to a few minutes, GRB 130427A put on its display for 20 hours. ... [W]ith GRB 130427A, some of the highest energy photons, including the new record-holder, appeared hours after the blast.

Maybe light speed varied for particles that arrived here so that "typical" couple minute burst now looks like 20 hour burst ? Reason for that could be particles crossed some dust clowd or some other fenomen.

Use one laser. Actually there is no need for second wavelength for binary transmission.
I assume that actual cause of "analog" data transfer is that there is some possibility that
their data transfer is not very precize on receiving side. They could send for example
0,0,10,10,4095 and receive 0,0,11,9,4094
That still would be ok for "analog" image, but not for binary transmission.

X years or so ago...

Don't even try to build that ship to go over this big water! We need that wood you are going to take for our houses and for making heat when surviving winter.
It is useless! There is nothing habitable there.. Water is cold and there are big monsters that will eat you when they met you.
We know that world is round dish with elephants underneath, and death is waiting for you on the edge of the world.
You should focus on the problems we have here, not the ones you just imagined in your sick head.
Don't waste our hardly gained resources. Stop dreaming. Start working for good.

Everybody here hates flash.
You know I've been reading flash is dead stories for couple years here.
Still it is up and running, and new versions are coming out. And if somebody needs
site that needs to look exactly the same on all browsers and all OSes, while
having rich content with animation video and sound, they stake is usually on flash.
because HTML5 is not ready yet, and never will be, because big companies
does not know how to come to one standard. that means you will have to write
custom cases for each different browser. good luck.

How do you publish simple javascript game so that it can be embedded in any page?
I bet its 10x complex task than adding one flash object.

yes, I am flash game developer, and i have android phone with flash, not an iOS device.

You are TOO skeptical. It works, here in Europe, and has been tested. Here, howerer, is pretty much GSM/Nokia monopol. But Siemens, SonyEriccson,etc shows Noika compatible graphics messages too. So it's preetty reliable. Anyway when you subscribe for ticket, You register in their database with your phone number automatically. And even if sms gets lost, which is highly unliekely, (I havent lost any sms for years) you still can ask them to doublecheck their database.
