There were rumors that at least one of the license owners from the closest wet county, who now owns one of the three licenses (one license holder can own multiple businesses but the number of licenses is determined by population) in the county, was helping, but it was well know and publicized that the local churches were the major force behind it.

In other parts of the world evidence is always accepted even if someone broke laws to get it. IMHO that's the only logical way - if police illegally break into a house and find evidence a crime have been committed there the evidence is still real. Of course the police in question should get some time in prison too.

Yeah, good luck with that. The officers who violated your rights to get evidence will get, at most, a paid vacation while the "investigation" is on going. Hell, they may even be punished with an award of some type. Our forefathers lived in a world where this type of action was the norm, and saw fit to (try to) protect us from it.

Tell that to all the Walmarts in Texas that can't sell booze.

That's due to religious oppression, not government. My county finally went wet after a long battle, spanning multiple voting cycles, with the religious fucks around here. You know what? The devil didn't set up camp on the County Courthouse like you'd though would happen according the them. As a matter of fact, the majority of crime is still committed by meth heads and there has been little to no change in alcohol related incidents. Still can't buy alcohol on Sundays though.. Fucking religious nuts pushing their beliefs on everyone else, then crying oppression when we try to do demand our right to do something they don't approve of.

Sorry 'bout that... /rant

Comment Conductor size will stop shrinkage. (Score 1) 123

Transistors will stop shrinking when they reach the smallest size possible for an electron to move from one side to the next. This will be one atom thick by 1 atom high for the emitter and collector, but I'm not sure what the base would require. Maybe two or three atoms to be able to control the flow? This is for digital transistors only, analog may need be much larger due to frequencies, polarity, rate of flow and all that rigmarole.

That wasn't the topic of this thread. I was stating that rural America (although I'm not sure if a town of ~10,000 is considered rural or not, although I feel it is as I have to drive 30 to 40 miles or shop online for anywhere other than Walmart) will most likely never see Google Fiber. The answer to your question is simple, however - pure greed.

Outside of the U.S., there are countries are smaller than her smallest state. I'd wager a guess that the U.S. has more open space than the entirety of the EU. Hell, after a quick Google, Texas is damn near half the size of the EU. Come back when you have to lay a single cable across your country ten times just to get to the next population zone.
