That should be 200%, dammit.

You don't mind then if I put some speakers under your bed playing my trash metal band songs, blowing at 200â... volume? You won't do anything to limit this expression of my speech, right?
I fully expected the cops to not know or care what Tor was
I'd imagine that cops looking for child pornographers would have a pretty good understanding of what TOR is (even if they didn't think to check that it was an exit node)
I say it's rocket surgery.
What makes you think that, if they can signal us, they can visit us?
The GPL is a free licence in the same way that the USA is designed to be a free country: it doesn't remove all impositions from those who use it, but the few impositions that it carries are intended to protect the overall independency of its users, so that no single group can impose a non-free version of the whole thing.
Programmers without artistic skills should be exploring the boundaries of procedural generation.
"Art" based games rely on standard libraries that all work the same way (sprites for 2D, geometric transformations for 3D) intended to accurately portray in photo-realistic ways, or some effects that have become standard (glows, bumps, reflections, etc).
However, games can be made with 100% abstract representations that don't require any drawing skill (you'd still required to have some taste in selecting a color pallete, but there are tools that can make that for you). With them, a programmer can invent new ways to lay out objects on the screen, building drawing engines nearly from scratch, or exploring the possibilities of configuration and expansion of existing engines.
If you learn how to program modern card pipelines, you could build your own visual routines that produce never-seen effects. Building games to take advantage of such novel visuals is an unlimited field, in special if the rules of the game are novel as well.
... and accidents.
if you made it past teenage years
Which proves GP's point. In my book, steady food sources, healing and risk mitigation count as "life-extending devices" if they make it more likely that a larger percentage of population survives childhood.
Whenever a seriously efficient Dark Lord manages to establish an empire of subjugation and terror, the stupid copycats who try to follow their steps manage to ruin the strategy and make it useless.
[Staring at periodic table...] Hey, where the hell is China?
Right between ceramic and clay.
This ignores the unspoken policy that traffic stops are not always about enforcing traffic law and collecting small fines, but rather the police want that interaction with the driver so they can fish for bigger violations. Traffic stops are "pretext stops", a loophole to get around the 4th amendment.
Running your plate and taking your ID isn't about making sure they assign points to the right person, but also about looking for wants and warrants. Getting you to roll down the window and talk to the officer isn't really about checking whether you smell like booze or pot, or seem nervous. There is no right to remain silent when an automobile is involved., and traffic stops are one of the most productive ways to find and arrest people with outstanding warrants.
I hate -*HATE*- having a machine try to read my mind. And a web browser? No, thanks. Just get out of the way & let me do what I want, the way I want.
So you never, ever have used spell checkers, tab autocompletion, search suggestions - or Google's web search, for that matter? Google Search is by definition the #1 "machine that tries to read your mind" in order to show the most relevant pages for a query term.
Being open source gives your users a licence to ignore you if you're a prick.
