Comment Announcing tomorrow, question mark? (Score 3, Funny) 121

Dear submitter,

Had you bothered to go actually look at the countdown timer, you would have seen the words "Tick, tock, tablet time!" in large print right there in front of your face, and you would have known to end the title of your summary with a period instead of a question mark, and avoided the whole "let me go make myself look like an ass on Slashdot" thing.

Thank you for your time.

Comment It's already in the US. (Score 2) 245

http://www.proterra.com/ makes a wireless charging electric bus that is in use in the Greenville SC area. Obama was down here not long ago celebrating its rollout in the upstate, and my little town was one of many that received federal grant money to help buy and deploy these systems.

So, I don't know why the article poster though this technology "mignt not make it to the US." Perhaps just a lack of journalistic research... who knows?

None of that matters. As a minor, his is legally incapable of making his own decisions, including whether to play the Clarinet. His parents had a legal obligation to determine whether choosing to play the Clarinet was

    1) safe for him, and that it would not cause him a permanent disabling injury

    2) would not prevent him from pursuing his happiness by engaging in what they knew or should have known by his senior year in high school were his long-term career aspirations

Potential future income is always fair game in a civil trial.

If the child is still a minor, I would seriously consider involving Child Protective Services, since the parents have so obviously proved negligent in their duties of care.
