My personalized emoji is basically The Temptation of St. Anthony by Hieronymus Bosch, except with the face of a kitty superimposed over St Anthony.
The good news is that if you drink enough, it won't matter if you have health insurance.
As a personal anecdote, in university, if I studied for an exam when drunk (which was occasionally), I realized tended did much better if I was also a bit drunk when I actually took the exam (not a hang-over, but just a bit buzzed).
I think you may have been my grad school adviser.
they're *flashing* and they're *beeping*. I can't stand it anymore!
If you enter on yellow it should be because you were going to fast and were too close to stop safely, so leaving before it turns red shouldn't be a problem.
Only if the yellow is long enough. I've seen many lights where if there's only one car at the intersection and you're turning left, you can enter on green and you'll still exit two or three seconds after the light turns red. A car approaching from behind at any speed even remotely approaching the speed limit would then enter on yellow without time to stop, but would have to slow down for you and would be unable to get out of the light until long after it turned red.
The trailers for comedies are great! They tend to have every last actually funny bit of the movie condensed into 5 minutes or less. Just watch those and skip the movie.
Yes. when I said "nothign like this" I was including the speed in that assessment.
More likely, the beancounters.
First, those only stop someone from commandeering the aircraft in the circumstances that we saw in 2001 and do not necessarily address destroying an aircraft
No, they don't. And you can't, completely. You can shoot one down, and nothing at all prevents that. And the TSA doesn't do anything worth doing at all. But the problem that arose in 2001 was using the aircraft as a ballistic weapon with intelligent guidance. Everything that came about post 9/11 was in response to that. We'd had various aircraft destroyed by bombs, and no one felt we had to go anywhere near the lengths we did after 9/11. So what I was saying was that in response to 9/11, we should have done what I suggested, and that would have adequately addressed the actual issues that 9/11 brought to the table.
One of the concerns about the cockpit door is a rapid depressurization of passenger cabin might force that the door be opened.
Fine. If this is a real problem (unlikely, but possible), start building new aircraft without cockpit doors, and replacing the entire bulkhead in older aircraft. Have an external hatch access the cockpit; another the cabin. The pilots and engineer(s) don't need to be in the cabin, and the passengers and stews don't need to be in the cockpit.
Then toss the (un)PATRIOT(ic) act in the sewer where it belongs.
nd there's already like seven [Temeraire] books so they could milk it for a long time.
