It's not quite as insane as you would like to suggest. If you read the summary below, and apply it to the examples you offered, you'll see that none would be examples in which you'd be legally justified in using deadly force.
Laws vary by state. In Pennsylvania (From http://www.pennlago.com/justif...):
Summary of The Castle Doctrine:
Somebody has unlawfully and forcefully entered your dwelling, residence or car (provided you're in the car); or
Summary of Stand Your Ground:
If the bridge was less than 5 feet above the road, I would.
The correct headline should be "Facebook Decides Which Killings It Wants to Show Us"
If you want something that Facebook doesn't offer, go elsewhere.
If people are getting all their information through Facebook, then THAT's the real problem.
> I have never been given any opportunity to negotiate on salary.
I'm wondering if I'm misunderstanding your wording, or if hiring & promoting works differently for people other than myself.
I've never been GIVEN any opportunity to negotiate on salary. When I've gotten raises, it has been because I went to my boss and said I need more money.
So, I'm wondering if you've tried going to your boss and asking for more money? Are you being as passive as it seems to me, or am I just misunderstanding what you said?
My wife was late on a bill, the vendor asked her to fax a copy of the check as proof that she wrote it. She faxed a copy, then mailed the check. The vendor cashed the fax, then cashed the check when it arrived.
I remember installing SLS Linux from 3.5" floppies. I don't remember how many it was. I downloaded it at work & wrote it to floppies using a Sun Sparc workstation. It took several days to write the floppies.
I hated them, but they got the job done.
But what do I know?
As to my absence I've been a bit overwhelmed by work stuff, sorry about that, it's no excuse
While I agree not everything should last forever, it should still be the goal, at least until the things we get are perfectly recyclable.
I just purchased a Nexus 6p. I was upgrading from an HTC One M7 GPE. I did not want to get a new phone, but the battery life of my HTC one had dropped to the point where it was barely usable. It went from lasting all day without a charge to needing multiple charges per day. The HTC One is the first phone I've owned that I had to retire because it failed. My wife had one that also died "early".
I don't have a problem if you decide you need or want a new phone & abandon a working phone to move on. However, I absolutely HATE being forced off a phone that does everything I need just because the manufacturer wants to be able to sell me another one.
Planned obsolescence should never be permitted for anything that can't be completely recycled. Accidental obsolescence should be good enough.
Actually, anyone who pays attention will know. The food will be more consistently prepared.
If they calibrate everything properly, and set it up correctly, every burger, every fry, every shake will be perfect. If you set it up so that the customer enters their own order, you will eliminate the multitude of errors that are introduced into the process by the quality of humans that are currently involved in the process.
Of course, if they fail to set it up the way it should be, every burger will have half the cheese stuck to the wrapper, the fries will be burnt and over-salted every time, the sodas will be handed to the customer with too much ice...
