Whaddup, fellow liberal gunny?

The issue isn't 'gun violence,' the issue is 'violence.' Somebody wants to massacre a room full of whoever, they're going to massacre a room full of whoever, guns or no guns. Chainsaw, propane tank, backpack full of molotovs (mix in egg whites in the right proportion for simple napalm,) cube van, diesel/fertilizer bomb, baseball bat, whatever.

Also the fact that the entire original series, and the movies leading up to 3, were about Kirk wanting nothing more than his career and ship, but he throws it all away, without a second thought, for Spock. No debate, no waffling, doesn't even think about it.

And on the other hand, no hamming it up, no chewing the scenery, no 'Dammit, I LOVE this ship, but SPOCK...NEEDS....ME.'

It's dead simple to synchronize wireless gear on completely different networks, if you so choose. The gear just needs to support it.

GPS input to produce accurate timing, and configurable RF parameters. Polling so that the AP can tell what client to transmit when.

Sure, banging it into 802.11 is a bitch, but even it's been done; take a look at Cambium's ePMP products.

Who cares if the XB1 can play Sagittarius games? The import thing will be that the Sagittarius can play XB1 games, and Scorpio games. And that the Taurus can play XB1 games, and Scorpio, and Sagittarius. And so on.

Look at how excited everybody got when Red Dead Redemption was finally announced for XB1 backwards compat.

People expect that their old rig can't play Witcher 3, but people also expect that their brand new, top-of-the-line rig can play the old games, perhaps with dosbox or some other emulation. But gog.com is absolutely a thing that proves that concept.

I don't think a border agent can prevent a US citizen from entering the country.

As a foreign national trying to enter the US, you're absolutely right. The border agent can ask you to dance, riverdance style, while singing 'God Bless America,' and deny you if your foot work isn't up to par. But I meant specifically an American attempting to reenter the country. They can still get fucked with, don't get me wrong, but the rules are different.

Then there's that whole 'The border is 100 miles deep' thing America likes to claim.....
