the guardian... who are basically marxists
No, the Guardian is actually a liberal UK newspaper. I suppose in US terms that makes it communist, but in the rest of the world it would be a mildly left of centre mainstream media outlet.
I found that the best way to read their books is to treat them as second-rate fan fiction.
Life's too short to read much fan fiction, never mind second-rate fan fiction.
I thought the Watchmen movie improved on the graphic novel by ditching the giant fake alien and replacing it with Dr-Manhatten brand blue nukes, made far more sense, and the alien thing wouldn't have stood up to even brief scrutiny.
Make up your own movie and don't call it Watchmen then.
Since a large farm in a dry place like California presumably requires an awful lot of water, it seems entirely reasonable for the actual rain falling to be shared out reasonably and not hoarded by big business.
Water falls out of the sky in most of the world.
Sadly, in more and more parts of it, it's becoming illegal to collect it. And mind you, I'm not talking about diverting seasonal drainage, I'm talking about collecting rainfall from your roof, let alone from a structure purpose-built for collecting water like you commonly see in areas with high rainfall and low government interference.
What? How can "the government" stop you from collecting rain water? And, perhaps more to the point, why would they care if you do?
If you haven't had slow-smoked brisket that made you cry because it was so awesome, you have no business commenting on this article.
The only food that's ever made me cry is burnt chillis.
if I ever interview and I can see it's going badly, I tell this story in response to the "What's your weakest asset" question, just to see the look on their faces.
Um, I think you're supposed to say something like "I am occasionally impatient with people who are less intelligent and driven than me" not "I wasted our Asian operation a whole day's work and got a written warning for my incompetence".
Greeks banks will run out of money next week. The positive side of this, is that there will be no more queues in front of banks, because if there is no more money in the bank, there is no point in queuing in front of it.
How would the algorithm rate that comment . . . ?
"I'm sorry Dave, but don't give up the dayjob."
Interesting twist on the Turing test, can a program detect sarcasm in comments more accurately than humans?
Yeah, sure it can.
"Why do arrest records have to be public?"
Because in criminal law, as opposed to civil law, the public is a party to the case. N. B. criminal cases are tilled "The People vs.". The records of a criminal case show the actions that the State has taken in the name of the People.
Arresting someone is not the same as charging and trying them with a crime.
Employers must also pay unemployment costs when they fire employees "without cause" (such as for embezzlement, etc.).
I do not think you entirely comprehend the meaning of the words "without cause".
Hint: embezzlement is a justified cause.
