This excellent blog article describes a technique developed by Judea Pearl decades ago to do exactly this. Would be interested to understand how this is different/better.
the relatives of the one shot will sue Sony for millions of dollars due to the release of the film that Sony KNEW could unleash terrorism.
You don't really think they could win that lawsuit, do you? The only think they KNEW was that there was a threat. Sure, lawyers would probably have made the theaters and Sony post signs about the threat, but then the patrons also KNEW about the threat.
Otherwise any event in the country could be stopped by a mere phone call or email or even a tweet.
If we look at jet aircraft, wear depends on the airframe and the engines, and the airframe seems to be the number of pressurize/depressurize cycles as well as the running hours. Engines get swapped out routinely but when the airframe has enough stress it's time to retire the aircraft lest it suffer catastrophic failure. Rockets are different in scale (much greater stresses) but we can expect the failure points due to age to be those two, with the addition of one main rocket-specific failure point: cryogenic tanks.
How long each will be reliable can be established using ground-based environmental testing. Nobody has the numbers for Falcon 9R yet.
Weight vs. reusable life will become a design decision in rocket design.
I thought it was understood because it was so painfully obvious? If only I had known the world was so stupid I would have published the law myself decades ago...
Good on you! But surely this can't be the only thing that is obvious to you but a marvel to the rest of us. So get cracking and start publishing. Don't miss another opportunity!
The court was asked to decide B not A.
The court was not asked to decide either one of those things. You're not even paying attention.
Would Disney pay for the rights to Starwars if they could just wait it out and take it for free?
Trademarks and copyright are two different things. But I like the idea of after a short period of time, say half a dozen years, there's a small fee for renewing a copyright, with that fee rising year after year. That way the large majority falls into the public domain and remains useful to society, while the monetarily valuable ones can remain protected for as long as they're worth the escalating fee.
Thank you, nuckfuts.
Now there's something you don't read every day.
Ah yes, one bad patch and we should all NEVER PATCH AGAIN BECAUSE THE SKY IS FALLING!
How is it that you interpret disabling auto-update as meaning "NEVER PATCH AGAIN"? I took it to mean don't patch until you're confident it's safe to do so. Don't you think that's a more reasonable view?

I've got to admire a firmware that can report
Error 215: Struck with sledge hammer.
That's why modern drives use helium instead of protons . . .
That sequel went straight to video. Other than watching him become Darth Squeaky after it got torpedoed, there was really nothing worth watching.
These are all physically incompatible. But an MP3 file is an MP3 file.
Not in this case. The files in question contained Real's DRM. That's why they had to backdoor them. If they were actually standard MP3 files they would have worked without issue, and would still be working today.
