You do realize that if the wind is blowing directly toward the wall, a person could hold their umbrella directed away from the wall, and not be hit by the direct rain, and it would be bouncing off the wall back at them. It's called geometry.
The available evidence points to the fact that there appears to be a correlation between sugar consumption and health problems; none can be detected with artificial sweeteners.

Directed energy weapons are not that interesting. I'm more scared of undirected energy weapon and very curious about ballistic energy weapons.
Would they be interesting if they were pointed at you?
If we had a post of the month award, I'd be voting for this one.
Dumb little shits will be dumb little shits all their life

I didn't know who Temple was until stumbling upon the movie made about her. It would have been nice to get her take on how factual it is. My wife an I really enjoyed it.
I'm not talking about myself moron...thanks for playing jackass. This is human nature. Get your head out of fucking Utopia, because it's not real. Few people work for altruistic reasons, they're in it for themselves. They need incentives to push themselves, or else they're going to do the minimum.

The Globe and Mail's angle is quite a bit different: How Uber is ending the dirty dealings behind Toronto's cab business
Thanks for the summary. This sounds similar to an incident where I received email from a small bank that shares my own last name. Apparently, one of the bank officers thought he was sending it to one of the owners. So, I received confidential information, which I did not divulge, and informed them of their mistake. That said, could I have shared that information with whomever I pleased? It seems like a the same philosophy.
