It didn't go so well the last time we went there.
I'm sure the hundreds of thousands of seamen from the Philippines will like this news.
So I guess it's okay for me to borrow, say, $1000 from you, and then I simply forget that I did? If I then move and you can't reach me, will you just let it be?
So the french blogger who was fined 3000 euros should now have a good reason to appeal his judgement, as the documents he linked to actually was publicly available?
Spoken like a consumer, not a creator.
So if a carpenter makes a chair for you, the carpenter deserves to be paid in perpetual for the chair as well? A good carpenter is a creator as well.
And from TFA:
"Creatives have a right to be paid indefinitely on their work", and switch out "Creatives" for any other job. "Dentists", "teachers", "librarians", "palaeontologists"... It starts to appear a little ludicrous.
The same kind of tool that wears a polo shirt with an alligator image on it
I do that sometimes. But then it was my wife who bought the shirt so I kind of have wear it sometimes. So I'm not a tool of the brand, I'm a tool of my wife!
Basically Linux will largely cannibalize Windows sales.
Not always, there may be people who doesn't buy games because they're not on Linux. I know that I don't buy as much games as I would like to, because there are not so many Linux-native games, and if more games came out on Linux I would definitely buy more.
So while some of the Windows market may be cannibalized, having games on Linux will probably increase the number of (potential) customers.
You mean like North Korea just did?
To take this even further, why not learn something completely unrelated? Like, say, playing an instrument or painting? Or spend the time you were going to learn to write a novel instead.
Just do something you would never normally do, something that gets your thoughts away from the day job and anything related.
But doesn't e.g. FEDEX "throttle" packages by default? You have to pay extra to get express delivery.
I'd hammer in the morning
I'd hammer in the evening,
All over this land.
Yes, but cooking at home is time in which you can do very little else simultaneously. At a restaurant, you have much more freedom to do other activities, either socially or through a smartphone/tablet.
I find that it's quite the opposite.
If I'm at a restaurant and waiting for food, what I do is social things like talking, browsing Facebook, reading mail. And that's all. If I cook at home, I can do lots of other stuff besides the social things. For example, I put some thing in the oven, and while it's there I can do lots more than browsing Facebook, like cleaning, go out with trash, and be social with my family and/or Facebook. Heck, I could even watch some TV if I wanted.
The point is, the options of things to do at a restaurant is pretty limited, while there are basically unlimited number of things to do while waiting for food at home.
Some allergies don't depend on environmental factors.
Take me, for example. A couple of years of my childhood I spent some time after school each day on a farm. That included the occasional playing and jumping in the hay. It didn't happen every day, week, or even every month, but it happened and it was damn fun (but really dangerous). Then comes puberty and figuratively from one day to another I developed "hay-fever" and pollen allergies (mainly for grass).
Anecdotal and small sample size and all that, but I really don't think overexposure to grass was the reason, because I wasn't really exposed to it that much. But the exposure I had certainly didn't help me, I developed allergies to it anyway.
What I'm trying to say is that environmental factors, like having a dog, doesn't always play a roll, sometimes there are other factors that makes you develop allergies (genetics, mostly). While having a dog may help, I would get one (or rather, a couple of cats) more for reason that it's good for my kid for other reasons (learning empathy, the natural cycle of life, not hitting people or animals in the head with a spoon, and a damn good company).
Most, if not all, western European countries have very strong labor laws that largely prohibits both these behaviors.
And if Amazon tries anything like that in France, the workers will throw all boxes into the streets and cause general mayhem.
In any sane country, the customer. In the USA? The wealthiest company even marginally involved (see e.g. this for inspiration).
