I don't say this to complain about the car. I actually love it. I've been to a gas station about 5 times over the last year. My average commute during my work day is 20-30 miles (depending on where I go for lunch), and a busy day tends to max out at 50 miles. I just recognize the limitations. My second car is a Prius and that's what we use for long hauls.
And, as another posted, the Nissan dealers are Nissan's worst enemy in selling them.
Yes... yes... and yes. I actually own a Leaf and I love it. But the hell I went through at the dealership neraly had me abort and go home minus a shiny new Leaf.
Where is the '-1, Factually Incorrect' mod when you need it?
1) Yes, all Apple devices now prompt for an AppleID when you first turn them on. There is a 'Skip' button that you apparently completely missed, though. It is not a hidden button.
2) Apparently you were unable to do a simple Google search to figure out how to create an iTunes Store account without a credit card. Apple has posted directions.
Or does reality not fit with the bad image you want to have of Apple?
Nothing annoys me more than trying to find news about something local and finding that the online local news source has covered their front page with (inter-)national news.
If your small-town newspaper has a website, remember that it is competing with CNN.com, BBC.com, nytimes.com, and everything else. Chances are you not going to do better international news than the "big boys". You are going to be carrying the same AP story as everyone else.
So where can you compete? The local news that CNN, et al, are not going to carry. Do not make your readers search your site just to get the local coverage they are looking for.
Places like WickedLocal.com (in Massachusetts) have it figured out, probably because most Massachusetts local newspapers did *not* figure it out. Patch.com is trying to do this on a bigger scale.
If kids are going batshit crazy in school, like columbine...
For the record, Columbine had *armed guards*. But, hey, don't let facts get in the way of a good story...
Now, as a non-gun owner, you say, "well, I must too have a gun." After such an event, everyone's risk of being shot with a gun doubles given that there are now two guns in the community. The original owner of a gun went from a 0% chance to a non-zero percent chance as well. The risk to the community has increased greatly, but yet, two members feel more secure, even though their actual risk increased. Continue that throughout and it's easy to understand the gun nut philosophy.
Those who profess that the problem isn't too many guns but rather too few completely fail at the prisoners dilema. Be sure to avoid doing anything significant with them; they apparently have already proven they will chose their own self interest over the greater good.
