Good luck trying to check your app's dashboard and tweak some settings while out of the office on your 'fucking' desktop.
By the battery controller he means the bit of electronics that actually controls the battery. If built correctly, it will not be able to harm the battery, regardless of the commands sent to it.
The control software telling the electronics to switch to battery power in the middle of the night, though, could happen.
I do believe you missed the entirely appropriate Futurama reference, good sir.
Prisoners are also still citizens, and judges can take away their constitutional rights just fine.
Stop in vitro fertilization and medical treatment for everything except accidents too, then. After all, if you get a heart attack and we help you, we're just encouraging people with genes that provide medical risk factors to continue. In fact, we should probably take out your kids.
Depression is an illness, not a choice, and you're arguing letting people die from a disease where it's possibly preventable.
I fail to see it as anything other than blue and gold (well, brown/yellow that might be called gold)
I said solar power plants, not solar photovoltaic power plants. If your 'fuel source' becomes solar panels, it's not exactly renewable. There's a 300+ MW solar power towers in the Mojave desert for example. It uses heliostats, not solar panels.
Well, at least the pollution they caused wasn't being ejected into city centers where people would immediately breathe it in, but instead at a centralized location where big bucks could be spent to achieve big gains of pollution reduction.
The main benefit of electric vehicles is the ability to move to an electricity-based society, at which point the problem that would remain is getting clean electricity. Filling a desert with solar power plants would probably do it.
You're saying that correlation is a leading cause of causation?
Interestingly, you're a bit right:
10 grams of eggplant equated to ingesting the same amount of nicotine you would absorb by being in a room with low amounts of smoke. Weird.
Of course, unless you like to snort eggplant, it's not going to do jack to the cilia in your lungs.
Why? If they threaten to let you go, keep drinking water and don't go to the bathroom. When they fire you for pissing at your desk, I'd bet you have a good case in court. Provided you didn't drink excessive amounts of water.
This image should three MRI's, of three individuals. Two triathletes, one old, and a sedentary old man. Can't really argue with this.
That is a silly assumption, that terrorists aren't thinkers.
The suicide guys? Yeah, they're the ones who can be persuaded that dying is worth it. But 'terrorist' by now encompasses such a large group, there are going to be plenty of people capable of planning a complex attack.
One guy with a few drones remotely piloted on a common frequency, say 433MHz, carrying pipe bombs onto school playgrounds cannot easily be stopped. Where this same guy with an AK47 can be stopped with a single bullet.
That depends on your point of view. From the point of view of the unemployment administration, yes. The program works.
From my point of view, it was pleasant as well. I was looking, but not very aggressively. Partly because my previous salary was good enough that I could get by on 70% of it (standard unemployment in the Netherlands). I'd had plenty of rejections without even a meet-up. Being approached by multiple employers meant I had choice, more confidence, and eventually a great job.
I have said it before and I'll say it again: I'm amazed noone has taken a consumer-grade self-built multicopter, put a pound of plastic explosive on it, and flown it into or next to an important building from a mile away.
Building a quadcopter or such capable of carrying a lethal payload and flying it FPV takes about $250-300.
