We must fear such organizations and ban them by congressional edict immediately!
At the onset of this condition, fluid outside the cells has an excessively low amount of solutes (such as sodium and other electrolytes) in comparison to that inside the cells causing the fluid to shift through ( via osmosis) into the cells to balance its concentration. This causes the cells to swell.
Yes... drinking water in excess can kill you.
Any cinema of repute would refuse to show material sourced from a VHS.
I used to be of this 'THX' mindset, but now I see it as folly to deny content over technical concerns. These theatres apparently agree - the content must be compelling enough that people will pay good money to see it, and the quality sufficient to not get in the way of the content.
Yep... also, Landmark theaters are an "art house" chain so they are quite used to a wide range of technical quality... some intentionally rough, some not.
I'm a TV & Film editor by trade, so I easily notice sub-second motion and flicker. The flicker and the "bad color" of CFLs bugs the hell out of me. I can immediately notice when a room is lit by CFLs vs. good old incandescents.
I'm all for doing what we can to reduce power consumption, but for me CFLs are not a viable option. I have a hard time working around them. I haven't tried LED light bulbs yet due to them being relatively new on the market... maybe that will be a way to go, but I don't think the incandescent light should be banned wholesale.
Government is getting carried away with banning things. *reaches over for a ma huang herbal supplement and a clove cigarette* Oh... wait...
Maybe a added power consumption tax would be appropriate, but not an outright ban.
The military is not a killbot factory. They're trained to actively avoid taking lives if they have a choice in the matter, and the rules of engagement support that. They aren't out there "trying themselves to end a number of other lives", as you put it.
Right! Killbot duties have been turned over to private "security" firms such as Blackwater.
