"People fleeing a war are given asylum until the war ends, after which it's revoked and they're returned to their country of origin."

You're probably living in a different Europe. In the Europe I live in hardly any of the immigrants who claim to be fleeing a war ever return to their homeland. They just stay here indefinitely.

What? Have you ever been to Europe? I live there, probably in one of the places with the best public transport and it's STILL a disaster. Sure, I can get to work with public transport but it'll take me 3 times as long and I'll be stuck in a cramped space with people I don't want to be stuck with.

I'll just take the car, thank you, like most people around here who can afford one.

"you'll soon see the real reason why the Android platform has so many phones in the wild"

It's about choice. It's about competition. It's about all those things that will make America... (sorry, scratch that)

There's undoubtedly a lot of crappy Android phones on the market but there's also a lot of great phones among them. My current Moto Play Z is the greatest phone I ever had. Great battery life, SD storage, dual sim and everything works smoothly and reliably. At least as good as any Apple product but plays much better with others.

Did I mention it's also a lot cheaper?

a sane locking system that would not have an override on the inside so that occupants can leave the room whatever the state of the electronic lock.

Fail-safe instead of fail-secure would have to be mandatory in these cases. What if there was a fire?

"Beyond that, having a credential only gives you an advantage in the job market if other people don't have it. It should be obvious if 100% of the population had college degrees total compensation wouldn't go up one penny, and your degree would be completely worthless."

Unless of course the country as a whole would be able to compete with the rest of the world more effectively if the general level of education goes up. There must be some reason people in western countries (and Japan) are still making a lot more than people in the rest of the world.
