I have a Dell Precision M4700 that I only reboot as a result of security patches being applied. It's predecessor was a different model in the Precision line that was trouble free for many years, until the video card finally took a dump.

Dell has made some shitty business models, however. You get what you pay for.

a) I've never had to show ID to work - and even if it were true that people today have to show ID to get a job - that only means that they have to HAD ID at some point. You ever lost your wallet?

b) there are multitudes of under the table cash-paying jobs out there, many of which are filled by people who are eligible to vote.

Or are you happy to disenfranchise them as well?

He wrote "Time for a reality check. Despite the hysteria from the political class and the media, smoking doesn't kill. In fact, 2 out of every three smokers does not die from a smoking related illness"

Is it really relevant that 2 out of 3 people die of something else before smoking eventually kills them?

I don't think so.

I'd argue that the fact that the money was never recovered except for a small amount of decayed bills found around 1980 means that he didn't survive the jump.

...or he didn't give a shit about the money. Or it was lost during the jump. Or one of a number of other possibilities.

Considering that the decayed bills were found 9 years after the hijacking *upstream* from where he is thought to have jumped, I'd say it's not a safe to assume he didn't survive. That's part of what makes this case such a mystery.
