They got cheaper gas they were entitled to. They didn't get a deal for cheaper gas. They essentially stole cheaper gas.
Um.. I do not think those words mean what you think they mean.
Formally, a flash bang is a "stun grenade" and falls in the "less than lethal" category of offensive weapons.
Note it is not harmless, most people report significant temporary (1 year or less not 5-10 minutes ) or permanent hearing loss. If close to the detonation point, 2nd & 3rd degree burns are common. Vision problems (retinal damage, corneal burns, etc) are another frequent side effect.
These weapons are designed for high risk breaches, not raiding a house in the middle of the night to serve a search warrant after you've already arrested the suspect.
Trade has existed long before mathematics were formally codified.
Not really. The whole 60 seconds to a minute & minutes to hours is because the Babalonians used a base 60 counting system for trade - that's pushing math in trade back 5K years to when they BUILT THE WHOLE NUMBER SYSTEM AROUND IT.
Individual barter goes back earlier, but pretty much as soon as you get into "Trade", you need math to handle it.
You are a little out of date, Odin was downgraded during the pantheonic reorganization. Unfortunately due to a clerical error the one true God is now a central park squirrel named Skippy.
Foamy - his name is Foamy the Squirel
...the braindead HR manager...
Is there any other kind?
but unfortunately when you go to do complicated things, you frequently find the Microsoft product has a feature to handle it and the open solution either doesn't or it is rather messy.
Can you provide some examples? I generally find that the OS versions of software conform to the guidelines of GUI design as well as MS products do. I also find that the error messages provided in OS software are usually more informative than Microsoft's.
Btw, how do you distinguish between defamation/slander and critics in the US?
If the statements are true or opinions:
- The service was poor - I had to request silverware 3 times before I could eat my salad. Not libel/slander/defamation if true.
- There was a cockroach in my salad. Not libel/slander/defamation if true.
- The food was bland and flavorless. - opinion
Given that the Russian government is protecting him as much as they are, he handed some intelligence over to buy himself some time. That's the most likely manner in which they'd offer him protection.
Not really - it's cheap political theater. He's a highly public figure that the US desperately wants back on US soil - it costs Russia nothing to have him & they gain a lot of 'respectability' points for sheltering a US dissident from the wrath of "an out of control US government". The political points for having Snowden lecture the US on privacy issues & transparency from Moscow are huge - Russia couldn't buy a better venue to tweak Uncle Sam's nose.
