It's bad enough that we have so many laws that it is advantageous to a corporation to claim one.
What does this have to do with the clone-copy continuity problem?
To take the bait, though, how are libertarians of all people going to be seen as a source of oppression?
Which doesn't bode well for the continued existence of their "dial-up only" email provider continuing to stay in business and provide that email address. Submitter should migrate them over to gmail or other large, likely-to-have-plenty-of-warning-before-service-stops web mail company sooner, just to inoculate against the possibility of an unexpected cutoff (presumably they stay because they don't want to lose contact with people using that email address, but they will lose contact pretty quick if the provider goes out of business.)
The problem with a nuke war is the huge number of people who would suffer and die as a result of it, so I fail to see how the same number of people suffering or dying in a "natural die-off" would be any kind of improvement.
does disbelief constitute a more logical position than non-knowing?
That won't work. Even if you create a will leaving everything to your clone-copy, anytime you travel your clone-heir would be stuck in probate for months afterward and the government would demand a huge cut of your net worth.
Which would be a medical cause of death....
Did it take a laser printer?
'cause that's all the Mythbusters guys needed for pretty much every fingerprint reader they tested (admittedly, before the iPhone 5s came out, so I suppose there could have been some advances since then)
Do race cars have power steering? I'd think it would add a decent bit of weight and sap a non negligible part of their engine power allotment.
More importantly, my car has a built in hands free that I can operate by voice. Why should I not be allowed to use it.
Bad example. It's counter-intuitive, but apparently hands-free doesn't actually reduce the risk of a distracted driving accident.
If we really want to make the roads safer, give me the power to arrest the dipshits that fly around me on the Interstate doing 20 miles above the speed limit and changing lanes like they are at Daytona.
You really shouldn't be in the middle lane if people are passing you on the right. Also, If the average speed is 20 over the posted limit, there are a number of states whose traffic laws I think could be interpreted to mean that you are the one who breaking the law and creating a hazard by not keeping up.
There is a technical solution to texting while driving (and also eating cheeseburgers while driving, which iirc is far more dangerous...). It is called autonomous cars. Then you can text and pig out all you want because the car is in control. Once we have one that is demonstrably safer than human drivers, we just need to find a way to deal with all the irrational ninnies who will want to keep the human in control of the vehicle.
It's 9 and 3 if you have an airbag, according to the NHTSA.
I'm skeptical as to whether there has been any benefit to 10 and 2 since power steering became common.
"spinning reserve" means they're basically burning coal for nothing, right? 0% efficiency to back-up the renewables? So we should attribute the carbon emissions for spinning reserve to the renewables?
I guess the question is, factoring in the spinning reserve, how do the carbon emissions of the renewables actually compare to just having straight coal plants?
So, you want to build pressurized bike tunnels? I think it could work, as long as you have an elevator at the "stations"
There are three levels of "Max"?!?
So, it's fine as long as we don't go around breaking it up and dispersing it into the air, and our solution if it ever becomes commonplace will not be to just stop using it in new construction and take extra care when removing old construction, but to actively go in and smash up the walls of old buildings to make sure it gets broken up and dispersed to maximum effect in an occupied building.
