You do realise that saying "citation needed" for something that was literally day to day news just makes you look like a pedantic ass, right? Seth Rich's murder is common knowledge on the level of Mike Pence being a state governor and Hillary Clinton having been a senator.
Of course it's unrealistic armchair-libertarian drivel: the magnetosphere is a harsh mistress, after all.
What's interesting about this development is that it isn't a nearly-entirely American endeavour, which is often the case with such ambitions; Asgardia seems to be Russian and the AIRC supporting it is Viennese. I suspect we'll see a lot more anti-authoritarian behaviour from Europeans in the coming years as a) the EU weakens, b) the Internet transmits political memes that were previously comparatively contained by media limitations like talk radio and poor English literacy, and c) people already exposed to (b) come of age.
The much more feasible version of "let's get off the Earth so we can get away from our countries' laws" is called seasteading, and generally involves a platform in international waters. There's one clear non-Libertarian, non-American example of seasteading (Sealand, UK) which is fairly old and unusually successful by micronation standards. These days, however, the idea is generally associated with these guys, who have been funded by Peter Thiel. They, unquestionably, are primarily concerned with ways to dodge regulation. Without a realistic means of building such a gigantic physical presence, though, they certainly aren't going to be doing much of that; at best they'd end up creating their own passports that no one would accept.
and that the DNC staffer who actually leaked those emails was shot repeatedly in the back and left with all of his money and valuables.
Federal authority over flight rules is likely the federal question.
Except uber drivers aren't independent contractors, they're employees that uber treats like contractors.
Except uber DOESN'T work with the free market. It ignores all of the laws and regulations for consumer protection and safety that other businesses have to follow, like adequate insurance.
I've always been able to spot other trekkers by how people react to me referring to any digital female voice as Majel.
I was hoping someone else figured this one out. I explain to non-technical people all the time that it's not hard to store large amounts of energy in a small space, it's hard to keep that energy from being released all at once in a KB malfunction.
The smart ones ask what KB stands for. The really smart ones figure out it means "KaBoom" on their own.
I love your double standards. Everything feminists want to blame on the current boogeyman is incontrovertibly the fault of that scapegoat. But when someone was so targeted by feminists that her mail was sent directly to a bomb squad, that she was forced to flee the country, and the threats against her are actually played out suddenly you can't accept it.
Gee someone whose mail had been sent directly to a bomb squad rather than her home due to the sheer amount of violent threats, who lived with constant abuse and threats of violence, who was forced to leave one country already due to those threats of violence and continued to receive them here in the US, finally had one of those threats made good on.
Finding her shooting is not difficult at all. As for the cute trick you pulled weaseling in the claim about wikipedia and "independent reliable sources" nothing could be further from the truth. Wikipedia's definition of a "reliable source" is any source which says something approved of by Wikiproject:Feminism. Personal blog posts and tweets are reliable sources for any claim if the person making them is someone like Zoe Quinn while third party newsmedia articles are unreliable if they dispute feminists' claims.
I've already linked you to her own firsthand testimonial many times. You call that "dubious" and "peripherally related" or pretend it's never happened.
