I had to get a signoff from my wife at age 29 for a vasectomy. I was told they wouldn't do it if i were single or if I had been married with no children.
This has always bothered me especially with the whole "It's my body you can't decided for me" line of thinking that is trotted out in the abortion debate. If a girl can be the sole decider about an abortion then why can't a guy be the sole decider about a vasectomy. For IUDs I don't know if there is some medical reason for a 16 year old couldn't get them especially considering that they are temporary but for thing like getting your tubes tied or getting a vasectomy done I would say as long as you are 18 and aren't under the legal custody of someone else, i.e. you aren't a nut case or have limited mental facilities, you should be able to get either done.
Without those things a school curriculum would be pretty useless today. About the only thing you'd be qualified for would be pumping gas or management.
So just like today's high schools then but without all the bullshit classes.
By hacking into manufacturer data? Because I doubt any of them would willingly give that data out.
Well, with open source phones, you don't have to do that surreptitiously.
I have a lot more invested in lens kit than bodies
So do I but then I am still using an old film SLR and what I have is so old that to change at this point would require changing everything. Also an f4 that is awful I think the worst lens I have is a f2.8 and that is my 200mm (it has been a while since I used that one), but then I did say I have spent a lot on lenses over the years.
Then I think your point was way too subtle.
if Apple found a loophole that allowed them to legally dump poisonous metals wherever they like, would you take the same stance?
Payment for double taxation is not remotely like polluting the earth.
You're right, the taxes I pay are completely fucking comparable to the taxes Apple doesn't pay by exploiting loopholes.
No, Apple's loopholes are exactly like you (and I) taking deductions for mortgage insurance, kids, depreciation on rental property, etc, etc, etc.
Engineering is a joke, they only know how to install linux from a CD.
So you are saying they are more competent than a standard MCSE cert holder then.
Accenture consistently drives high performance and has a history of satisfaction on projects for the worlds top organizations
No they have a history of bringing in piles of bodies that are only slightly more effective than a rotting corpse in the corner although the corpse may actually smell better.
What sets Accenture apart from the competition are its management.
Translation: We will blow more smoke up your ass than a stationary 2 stroke diesel Fairbanks engine with bad rings at load.
However Accenture Senior Management staff have shown consistently high levels of skill and communication.
See above a blowing smoke up your ass. Skills wise they suck harder than a black hole with daddy issues
