Books are just first-drafts of screenplays.
Unless it's the other way 'round like 2001: A Space Odyssey.
>Their ultra expensive laserjets are pretty good.
I beg to differ. My experience was the same as yours back into the nineties, but no longer. I purchased three very high end multi-tray HP laser jets around 2008 for a 28 person office that used a lot of paper. While the front quality and speed was good when they worked, the paper handling part of these machines broke or wore out constantly. We would replace all the rollers and gears, etc., and they'd work great for a while. Then the paper jams would start again, and we would find that some cheap part had worn out again. Anecdotal evidence, surely, and ymmv, but caveat emptor.
Well, no one could have anticipated this. Or at the very least the organization that put up these kiosks would have needed a lot of Internet experience to think that this might happen.
All it would have taken to anticipate this is five minutes shoulder surfing the computers in the nearest public library. Any library. Anywhere.
It wouldn't be illegal under FCC in the US, but it's still endangering people by blocking calls to emergency services. It shouldn't necessarily be legal.
I'm pretty sure that the bar has a landline telephone. Pick it up; punch 999 (UK), 112 (EU), or 911 (US). It's not that hard. If it was my bar, I'd install a couple of pay phones back by the WC for nostalgia's sake and a little extra profit. They also get emergency numbers for free. Otherwise, join the smokers out side for your Twitter fix. I'd be happy to stop bye if I was in the neighborhood.
If we could just wear pajamas at all times I'd be 100% happy.
Haven't been to Walmart lately, have you?
Some mornings it's hardly worth chewing through the restraints to get out of bed.
You have misquoted Emo Phillips. The correct quote is: "Some mornings, it's just not worth chewing through the leather straps."
That's entirely possible. However, it is also possible that he is misquoting me, since I have been using that tagline since the days of logging into BBSs using Telix on a 286 in the late 80s. I am sure that I copied it accurately from the guy I swiped it from, because my tagline management program was really good at that.
God made machine language; all the rest is the work of man.
