Also detonating a nuke would be a full fledged war

Lets ponder the stupidity of that statement for a moment...

Several different nations have detonated over a combined 2000 nukes throughout history, and none of them resulted in a "full fledged war". Furthermore, only two nukes have been detonated during wartime, however it was a "full fledged war" that resulted in the detonation of the nukes. It was not the detonation of the nukes that resulted in the full fledged war. In fact, throughout history exactly ZERO detonated nukes have ever resulted in a full fledged war. Since there is ZERO evidence to support your claim, I'd say you look pretty stupid right about now.

Before you troll around the interwebs looking for "stupidity" in other people, you should check the mirror first.

Huge != "larger than"

Huge: very large in size, quantity, or extent.
Synonyms: vast, immense, gigantic, very big, great, giant, massive, colossal

You could be correct by saying it's "...larger than the average home." However, the article uses the word "huge". I don't believe that adding a walk-in closet to an average sized home constitutes a "huge" home.

You may also want to look closer at the document you referenced. The average sized home for the NORTH EAST (where this supposedly huge house is located) is 2613 square feet.

2400 is less than 2613

According to your reference material, a 2400 square foot home is neither huge nor larger than the average home based on its location.

How is this even news? AT&T clearly publishes their international roaming rates, their international calling rates, and their international data roaming rates. Cell phones have been in existence for 40+ years. If you can't read your own calling plan nor your own contract details, and if you can't afford the roaming rates, please turn your cell phone off, and while you're at it, please turn off your tendency to flame technology news sites when you pull a dipshit maneuver. Thank you, and please... don't come again. Have a nice day.

We already have a unit of measure for billing which is referred to as "mega bits per second". Now they want to bill us by "screen size per viewing"? Every @#$%'ing time I try to go legit, they force me back to illegal downloads with their senseless bullshit.

According to this, they have one of the HIGHEST MISCONDUCT rates in the nation. With "excessive force" being the primary misconduct being reported. If you believe in correlations, I suppose we could assume that beating up citizens, abusing the public, and ignoring your own laws is good for the crime rate. As you pointed out, this method seems to be working for LA.
