Why not quit pretending and just go back to the Automat?
Now, instead of waiting in line behind some idiot with 6 kids who don't know what they want, change their minds and bitch and moan they can't get breakfast a 11:05, I'll have to stand behind said idiot while they try to figure out what buttons to push and their maniac kids running around trashing the place.
I've seen people spending 5 minutes at the damned all in one soda machines trying to figure out how to get a root beer.
I bet you still have 640K memory in your computer and use floppy drives.
Because no one will ever need more than 640K and 128K storage media.
How about a a whole fucking book of citations?
He's just teasing Chris Grayling.
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
Why the preference for bolt action? Is there some unique requirement that rules out Automatics?
So the Mona Lisa doesn't exist because you aren't able to paint it?
A place to keep everyone infected with Ebola.
Funny you mention Subs. I was thinking about that this morning.
Subs are built for very hostile environments, and that's without people shooting at them. Take the principals of sub building and modify them appropriately...aluminum instead of steel, structures to hold air in instead of water out, etc. and you have a pretty good game plan for building an actual space ship instead of a soda can with windows.
Nothing will happen until you can build and loft a real power source that can generate hundreds of megawatts of energy to drive the ships and once there, power the outposts.
Solar can be part of that but putting up a solar farm to generate enough power to provide for an actual colony would take hundreds of tons of material as compared to a compact nuke or a fusion device like recently discussed by Lockheed. Think Nuke Sub reactors.
Kids have cell phones at younger and younger ages. You can argue if this is good or not but if they do have them, then it would be a nice feature and provide some peace of mind if you could call up their location (OK, the location of the phone) via a web app.
Are they late getting home and not answering their phone? If the locations service says they are at a friends house, then fine. If it says they are on I-35 traveling north at 80 MPH....not so fine.
Lojack for your kids.
What sick and twisted reasoning are people using to claims that restricting travel in the face of epidemic won't work? Sure, it won't help 100% of the time, but it will , the author's own admission, reduce risks for the U.S. by 50% for a while. That is better than nothing.
I suspect it has some kind of political correctness thing involved or some geopolitical maneuvering.
Blocking direct commercial traffic would go a long way towards preventing cases from flying in. Forcing people to tak connecting flights from some other country would not only lengthen their trip and therefore increase the chance they start showing symptoms, but they would also go through multiple screenings.
There is no good reason to allow direct flights from infected countries.
Just because a there is no 100% solution is no excuse for not making the effort. I'd rather prevent 80% of potentially infected people be blocked than 0%. Restrictions on commercial flights is a common sense solution until the outbreak in those countries is dealt with.
