Comment Re:Fucked survey, is fucked. (Score 1) 903

Here's the beginning of the abstract published by OECD:

This annual flagship publication provides details of taxes paid on wages in OECD countries. It covers personal income taxes and social security contributions paid by employees, social security contributions and payroll taxes paid by employers, and cash benefits received by in-work families. It illustrates how these taxes and benefits are calculated in each member country and examines how they impact household incomes.

And the report did exactly that. Bloomberg are the ones who drew the unfounded conclusion that taxes aren't high in America based on a study looking at something entirely different.

The company has also confirmed that the redemption process permanently adds the game to the appropriate third-party service.

Users can also opt to uninstall GFE, or install a different graphics card, once the promotional code has been redeemed and still retain full ownership of the game.

Comment Proof it's NOT a CIA inside job (Score 3, Insightful) 195

The proof that these clock failures aren't the result of some CIA meddling is that they haven't had any actual impact. A foreign government would want to take enough of these clocks offline to make the constellation fail, and they would want to make this happen at a time of their choosing. Ho do a few sporadic clock failures, some of which have already been fixed, benefit anyone?
