So it closed last year, but you only just noticed and posted an article? It doesn't seem like it's going to be missed very much, if the corpse can decompose and start to smell before someone sends the police to check on aunt Mozlabs.
B) You have clearly missed that this was supposed to be a joke.
C) Had this story actually been about tides and not wind (see A above,) then I would be right: retarding the tidal bulges even more than they already are (via harnessing) would slingshot the moon even faster than the tides currently do.
[Kurds] but we don't want to support them too much because we don't want them demanding their own state,

If we stopped working towards keeping the region unstable,
Mostly by changing allies the way other people change their underwear, yes.

Holy crap. First I've heard of Cortana. Googled it.. Is that for real??? It looks like Seven of Nine got fucked by Bob and this is the offspring. I can already see the protests from middle America. "Electronic boobies from Satan are sending us to Hell". How could anybody think that's a good idea?
OK, but what if they have a degree in English Lit and significant Open Source contributions relevant to the job? What if they have a CS degree but wrote stories for the student paper, and won an award for that?
So much work was done on both sides. They both have a talent pool. I've heard that "losers" often end up getting subcontracts from the "winners" for various subsystems, consulting, etc. Not sure if this will work with Boeing and SpaceX, but that's how it can work with the big MIC companies that were competing on a contract.
That indicates record breaking snowfall and 411 consumption for the coming winter.
Information wants to be smoked.
