I think this was aimed mostly at families with more than one car. Lets say one car is a smaller car that gets 33 mpg and the other is a large truck that gets 10 mpg. If they are both driven the same distance it would be better for that family to get a new truck that gets 20 mpg than it would be for them to replace their 33 mpg car with a 50 mpg car. (that is assuming though that they need both a truck and a car. In a lot of rural areas having a truck to haul stuff is very handy.)

I actually know of a tech company that does this. I'm only a student so I don't know much about this, but I had a tour of a company's headquarters outside Madison, Wi and it wasn't bad at all. They took the approach that to get the most out of every developer each developer needed his/her own office (with a door that closes)...and they didn't have a dress code either.

the easiest way to handle the situation is to turn on the lights after you have the weapon pointed at them to disorient them tell them to turn around and face you and then shoot. That way you can claim self-defense at least thats what the cops tell us to do in my area when we have a prison break.
