"Self-investigate" while carrying a high-velocity, rapid fire, large magazine rifle, pointing said rifle at hapless employees, and firing a shot into the floor = alt right.
We'd have problems with fires - which would get massive - before we had problems with crops dying off due to lack of CO2. Also, the ocean's pH would change and that'd be quite bad news indeed.
If you have a domain name under which you have a lot of content -- an example is kuro5hin.org -- and, after a decade or so you find yourself impoverished and stressed to the point that you can't renew the domain registration (as did Rusty Foster), a domain squatter jumps on it and holds it hostage for thousands of dollars. When that happens, frequently even "The Wayback Machine" is told to deep-six the archived content by the simple expedient of placing a robots.txt file in the home directory of the hijacked domain. "The Wayback Machine" then dutifully removes public access to the content. OH but the fun doesn't stop there! So now let's say you fork over the ransom money to the domain squatter, get the domain name back and remove the robots.txt. Of course "The Wayback Machine" then restores public access to all those articles... right?
archive.org does keep it stored and it is accessible to those with insider status, but no more public access EVER.
There really is value in hoarding history and if you can get away with it by doing it "on accident" all the better!
It's the size of a Poland. Bigger than an Italy, smaller than a Germany.
Read the summary again. It wasn't a "dummy" bomb, it was a real Mark IV nuclear bomb.
What it didn't have was the fissile core loaded. Which is exactly what would be expected; the Mark IV was designed to have the core loaded into the bomb by the aircrew during the flight.
So, it certainly wasn't a dummy bomb; it was a real Mark IV, with the normal uranium and TNT in the casing. But it almost certainly wasn't a live nuclear bomb, because there would have been no reason at all for the plutonium core to have been loaded on the plane, and even if the plutonium was on the plane, no reason at all for the aircrew to load the plutonium into the bomb.
Real bomb and no plutonium core.
If you were eligible to vote, and did not vote for Hillary, you helped Trump get elected. Nice going.
The US Civil War was fought to decide this issue. States cannot secede from the US. Investors aren't stupid, so what are they trying to show? That they think we must be? That they'll throw money at anything drawing attention to their displeasure with the president-elect?
That making a hyperbolic proposition as an opening is just part of the art of the deal?
We got two months to teach Toonces to drive before we're all getting in the car.
Obama, being interviewed on mitunetwork.com was asked if illegal immigrants had to fear being deported because they voted in the US election tomorrow. His response: "When you vote, you are a citizen yourself.
Mmm. There was an underlying social movement involving the engagement ring. As US courts became more reluctant to award damages in breech-of-promise suits, valuable rings as a mark of engagement became more common. If the man broke the engagement, the woman kept it, thus collecting the value of the ring without having to go to court. If she broke it off, she was expected to return it; courts, in fact, would enforce the demand for the return.
The standardization on diamond rings was very much DeBeers marketing; initially, rubies were actually more popular. But the underlying phenomena didn't have particularly much to do with the traditional wedding ring at all.
= = = One concept that certainly didn't translate from the book to the film was that serving didn't necessarily mean toting around a weapon. It meant putting your blood, sweat, and tears into service for society.= = =
Of course, if "society" decided to undertake an interstellar war of indefinite duration after you signed up for, e.g. the research station on Pluto, you were stuck for the duration. And not able to vote (for example, against continuing the war) until you were discharged, which would be... after the end of the war.
Take an astronaut to launch.
