Alexander said he had a tense time with police when officers returned his children, asked for his identification and told him about the dangers of the world.
#1 on that list: Overreaching government and law enforcement.
Half the ships are going to be in the dark at any given time
But even the ship's nighttime travel will be beneficial, as the expect the bubbles to remain for up to 24 hours. Those bubbles laid at midnight will still be doing useful reflecting at noon the next day...
When the people whose houses hug the narrow warren of streets paralleling the busiest urban freeway in America began to see bumper-to-bumper traffic crawling by their homes a year or so ago, they were baffled.
Baffled? Really? You never expected people driving on a highway RIGHT NEXT TO YOUR EMPTY ROAD to not figure out that maybe that way might be faster?
"The traffic is unbearable now. You can't even walk your dog,"
Why would street traffic affect walking your dog?
Killeen said her four-mile commute to UCLA, where she teaches a public relations class, can take two hours during rush hour.
Wait, so people are diverting onto streets that average two miles per hour? Are the highways only averaging one mile per hour?
The streets on the west side are no longer a secret for locals, and people are angry,"
PUBLIC streets aren't suppose to be a 'secret'. Duh.
Sony Pictures legal department quashed the idea, saying that if pirate sites were illegal, it would also be illegal for Sony Pictures to upload onto them.
I don't think 'sites' are illegal, only the content that is distributed is illegal. That's like saying a Ford Mustang is illegal because sometimes they are used to transport illegal drugs, so don't ride in one of them.
Shouldn't they pretty much all know better at this point?
+1 And how come officers can claim 'I didn't know any better' when that shit doesn't fly in court for a regular citizen (Ignorance of the law is not a defense, etc.)
Department of Justice sent a letter to the police reminding them that they cannot stop recordings, and most certainly cannot delete them
Wow, I hope that when I start illegal tampering with/destroying evidence that I only get a nasty letter from the Department of Justice. We just couldn't POSSIBLY charge these officers with obstruction of justice, now could we?
For someone asserting they know all kinds of "unknoiwn" details, you sure are behind.
This coming from a guy that thinks CVT means "Constant Velocity Transmission"...
CVT = Continuously Variable Transmission

What will happen when this collides with Apple and Google deliberately creating encryption that they themselves cannot break?
This seems pretty obvious, and I'm not sure why this was even asked. If Apple and Google do not posses a way to decrypt something, how can the courts force them to turn over something they don't have?
Voluntarily working for government is the same as being a slave? I think not.
They can leave at any time that they like for a better job.
I don't mind public worker unions until they start striking and shutting down billions of dollars worth of public infrastructure that we all paid for to use.
