Note that I don't really like the CfC idea, but it's ridiculous to say it failed because it worked too well.
It didn't fail because it worked too well. It failed because it was a waste of fucking money!. $24,000 per car? Really?
That is most certainly false.
Though, depending on which state you are in you may be required to at least provide your name. According to the linked wikipedia page Oklahoma doesn't even have a 'stop and identify' law let alone a 'papers please' law.
Not sure why this is marked as troll.
I get the biggest kick out of the pro-medicare, anti-national health care people.
I'm kind of the opposite. I prefer foreigners to all the worthless Americans I'm surrounded by in the States. The foreigners always strive to achieve whereas USAians think they deserve everything without working for it.
Seriously, it was only a few years ago that the US had the best networks around and was on the cutting edge with cell phones. But we are seriously lagging now.
Um...we've never been on the cutting edge with cell technology.
An excerpt from the TOS:
Any such controversy or claim shall be arbitrated on an individual basis, and shall not be consolidated in any arbitration with any claim or controversy of any other party.
"In Comb v. PayPal, Inc., 218 F. Supp. 2d 1165 (N.D. Cal. 2002), two subscribers and one nonsubscriber to PayPal's electronic disbursement service sued PayPal..."
The arbitration clause prohibited any consolidation of consumer claims. The court found this unconscionable because in practice most claims would involve consumers seeking a small amount of money and the costs of recovering those funds would be so high it would create the "potential for millions of customers to be overcharged small amounts without an effective method of redress."...
At the time people were having bogus charges taken out of their accounts, we'll say $100, and because you couldn't form a class action it wasn't worth the money to sue them independently.
Some people did get together and sue them over not being able to form a class action and it was ruled that their TOS weren't fair or some such.
I could go dig through my old Cyberlaw book if anyone is interested but I can't remember the specifics off the top of my head.
This could go a long way towards treating other drugs like alcohol for driving purposes. One of the major roadblocks in legalization was no field test for driving while impaired.
They do have tests for testing whether or not you're impaired. I've heard people mention this before in that "but if you're stoned you can still pass the field sobriety tests". If you pass the sobriety tests then you aren't really impaired, are you?
IMO the first two were great. It's when he got the brilliant idea of directing AND writing the screenplay for the third movie that it sucked the hard one.
While I enjoy the Evil Dead movies I'll never understand what made him think he was qualified to write the screenplay for Spiderman. He totally ruined it.
Quantum Mechanics is a lovely introduction to Hilbert Spaces! -- Overheard at last year's Archimedeans' Garden Party
