This point has already been crossed. To end this madness, violence will most likely be necessary.
I just dread what will come after.
Even for sequential reads, SSDs can be an improvement. My laptop's SSD can easily handle 200MB/s sequential reads, and you'd need more than one spinning disk to handle that. And a lot of things that seem like sequential reads at a high level turn out not to be. Netflix's streaming boxes, for example, sound like a poster child for sequential reads, but once you factor in the number of clients connected to each one, you end up with a large number of 1MB random reads, which means your IOPS numbers translate directly to throughput.
Spinning disks are still best where capacity is more important than access times. For example, hosting a lot of VMs where each one is typically accessing a small amount of live data (which can be cached in RAM or SSD) but has several GBs of inactive data.
Actually it's one of the hardest things one could possibly try. Usually it comes with a lot of bloodshed.
If it's not worth risking your life, it's probably not bad enough yet.
If that keeps them from buying PCs and infecting the poor machines with Windows, then yes. The lesser evil is still the lesser evil.
Now it does!
I'm confused. Wasn't it a set of tubes?
Threatened? Promised, and I still wait for that to be fulfilled.

Get a better government.
Depends on whether the self defense clause includes property or just life.
- The occupant(s) of the home must not have provoked or instigated an intrusion; or, provoked/instigated an intruder's threat or use of deadly force.
So that means I have to kill him with the first shot? Because else my shot would certainly have provoked him to use deadly force against me, considering that my intention is to shoot him.
Says who? Something similar exists, it doesn't outright kill you but depending on the circumstances it can sure mess up your life.
Be gone with your heathen argumentation. In the Book it said "go forth and multiply", not "go forth and add".
