I do agree with you on K & R style, though. Vertical space is valuable real estate.
It is illegal to construct or possess a gun that is "readily convertible" into an automatic (more than one round per trigger pull); any such device is classified as an NFA weapon (machine gun). A common example is a rifle that can, with only a small amount of milling or other work, accept an autosear.
This is untrue. An AR-15 can be made to fire more than one round simply by removing (or incorrectly installing) a very tiny spring. An AK-style rifle can be made full auto by removing a small amount of metal in the right place, no other parts needed. And an SKS can be made to empty its magazine without any trigger pull whatsoever by simply jamming one piece of its mechanism into a certain position with a tiny wad of paper or something. Those are just three examples.
So then, I could legally have in my possession an AR-15, an AKM, and an SKS. Right next to those rifles I could have a pair of wire cutters, and small file, and a scrap of paper. I would not be breaking the law.
The thing you're likely thinking of is called "constructive intent". If I have all of the above in my possession with the intent of violating the NFA, then I'm breaking the law. Of course, it's up to the BATFE to decide if my intent was worthy of charging me with a crime, and then the court to decide if that crime was committed.
Ultimately, food safety is the responsibility of the person eating it. If you're depending on the federal government to determine your biological makeup, you might be doing it wrong.
The testing period for a feeding study in the US is 90 days:
Since the genes will escape into the wild and the GMOs are targeted for consumption over a lifetime, a 90 day feeding study seems a bit short. I haven't heard of anyone getting cancer after smoking tobacco for 90 days, either.
Since non-GMO foods have been consumed over many lifetimes of consumption, their safety or lack thereof has been pretty well established.
How ironic. That's what the Usenet is and was long before WWW came alone.
Very true, and I certainly do miss it. Do you remember the day when AOL hooked up their network to usenet? So much "me too"...
Anyway, forum software sort of got itself into a rut. It seemed like everyone copied everyone else's bad PHP setup. So in that way, reddit was unique. And HTTP is far, far more ubiquitous than NNTP.
A rock store eventually closed down; they were taking too much for granite.
