Don't pick on
In German, all words are pronounced as written. That's what comes from sitting down and rationalizing your language, as the Germans did about 100 years ago.
Have you ever noticed how a hot chick will get frustrated and momentarily stand up on her toes then lets her heals drop to the ground. Making her boobs giggle.
I like that and don't want them to stop!
But do you think they are aware of what they are doing? (In general, I don't) Do you think mothers teach their daughters this trick? (No) Yet, many, many big boobed women display this body language.
Why? Because it has gotten them what they want in the past! Human interaction is subtle and hot chickness can be inferred one or two degrees of separation away, just by how horny men/bitchy women act when discussing the woman.
There is a level of blatant where the house knows it but players in general wouldn't.
In my experience, when the stakes are so low nobody really cares everybody just calls unless they have garbage. After a short while nobody bothers trying to bluff.
It can change when people play for pride, but again in my experience penny ante is just a 'drinking excuse'.
God damn law abiders.
Not anti-nuke, but realistic. Experienced system modeling/power trading consultant in electric energy.
I built the tool used by many market players to examine market scenarios. (Including 'market power' plays). Just a model shell, a real time system state API (hate to promote it, it queried data and wrote some model input files) and some analysis tools.
Shutting down all fossil fuel plants, world wide. Would result in economic shock. The system isn't all that 'well buffered' by design, JIT (just in time) and all.
Famine, war, pestilence etc are the foreseeable outcome. Complex chaotic non-linear systems (like economies and electric grids) really don't like large step functions. Makes them do crazy things.
Nukes aren't even a threat to fossil fuels. Huge fixed costs.
You could propose that as a geoengineering experiment.
But the short term costs are horrendous. Billions dead. Unlikely to be a good tradeoff.
Online poker? No, I don't play. No psych. No way of knowing they aren't blatantly cheating. etc etc.
Why anybody would trust an online casino when every city has a local illegal game available is beyond me. Comparisons between state lotteries and numbers rackets are apt. (the illegal numbers rackets games are much much better bets).
The alternative is to give kingmaker power to fringe parties. It's not like Italian politics are to be emulated.
Rainforests are CO2 neutral.
It is often quoted that rain forests absorb buttloads of CO2, but they give off equal amounts. Unless a swamp/jungle is laying down geological CO2 (there are a very few left, Okefenokee is the example that springs to mind) it is just absorbing it, short term. While the rot at the base of the tree is giving off an equal amount.
It's not female solidarity. It's hot chicks taking men for chumps...kickstarter, no equity... requirements for supplying funding for nothing is chumpdum.
Can you effectively program the device _with the device_. e.g. if you need a mac to develop an iPhone app the iPhone is _not_ a general purpose computer. If you need someone else to authorize a local install the device is _not_ a general purpose computer.
Because there is no way to structure a lease to include an extra 500SL for the decision maker, knowing that nobody would ever read the fine print.
He gets a company car, that the company knows nothing about. Of course he gives it back at the end of the lease.
It's a very common attitude among American leftests with no knowledge of history.
John is an idiot for not reading his piled up email in reverse chron.
