I wonder why it is I even bother.

I'm not voting, i'm not eligible to vote in american elections.
If i was, i wouldn't be voting *for* anyone, rather i would be voting against whoever i considered the worst of the two.
Handing the classified data to an organization cleared to handle such data so they can investigate a crime is not illegal, destroying evidence is highly illegal.
Many, many issues in life are just inherently complex. So, when there's conflict, a person has to weigh which conflicting principle Is more important to them.
So basically we're totally fucked and it's not a question of *if* the ants take over, it's a question of *when*?
I'd bet on early December, but I doubt I'll be around to collect.
Well if that's true it's one of the most spectacularly boneheaded decisions I've ever heard of. People rely on mapping programs for important stuff.
The amount of data you need assemble a global navigation system is enormous. You don't hire some intern to transcribe data out of Wikipedia, you license it from companies like Tele Atlas.
Now for geographic place names you'd turn to sources like the USGS GNIS system for the US, whatever the local equivalent of GNIS is, or for places that don't have that datasets like GNIS the DoD's Defense Mapping Agency.
It can't possibly be that Bing gets their place/position data mainly from Wikipedia. The only thing I can think is that they did some kind of union of all the geographic name sources they could find in order to maximize the chance of getting a hit on a place name search, and somehow screwed up prioritizing the most reliable sources first.
What you are claiming is that the latter is necessary, but the former is virtually impossible.
I'm not claiming anything. I just asked how a worker suffers if another worker gets paid the same as he does.
It was an honest question, and I was hoping for an honest answer, which I still have not gotten.
Yeah I didn't set my sarcasm flags loudly enough. Clearly I do not see any of this as "useful". Our economy is based on productivity, what business leaders do is usually orthogonal to that, often directly to avoid it.
So the question might be reversed, should everyone with the same job description be paid exactly the same, regardless of work output or experience?
This is a good question. All people inflate their own sense of worth. Workers who claim to work 80 hours a week are often making very different choices about how to manage their time as someone who claims to work 40. It's one half of the Dunning-Kruger effect (the other half being that people of high capability often underestimate the difficulty of what they do).
Now I'm not saying that you're exaggerating the amount of work you did in comparison to others (especially those tricksy women, amirite?), but it would be consistent with what we know about human nature and the actual data from the workplace of people who claim to work long hours. Studies have shown that the more hours people claim to work over 55, the more they're exaggerating how many hours they actually work. People who claim to work 75-80 hours a week are usually overestimating by at least 20 hours.
Competence is a complicated thing masquerading as a simple thing. No, people who have the same job title as you shouldn't necessarily make the same amount of money. Your pay is based on performance reviews, training, proven competence and a whole slew of other inputs. The problem is, a lot of those so-called metrics have a built-in bias. And in a salaried workforce, those biases can really run rampant. That's why in countries with healthier, more dynamic economies, you will see pay based on seemingly arbitrary measures like job title and seniority. This was an innovation of the labor movement and led to the most productive workforces in the world.
I have no doubt that you're a competent, hard-working guy. That's my built-in bias because I like you, Ol Olsoc. A lot of times, we find agreement around here. We have things in common. If I were overseeing a performance review of you, I'd probably be predisposed to rate you highly. I'd certainly be predisposed to rate you more highly than the woman who's been a bitch to me every since I made that joke about the one-eared elephant at Miller's retirement party.
Now, get the picture?
The only one I have is here and Imgur and that gets deleted every month or so. And when I travel, I use a separate mailbox for each trip. Easier to organize. So they could get the email firstname.lastname@example.org, but they have that already as it was the one I used to apply for my Visa. So they can follow it, but they already know where I am going, because I had to enter that on my Visa.
And that address will be deleted when I get back.
And why do they need it? NSA unable to crack https?
The remnants of the Ottoman empire can stop being at each other's throats but it's really all just the fault of the West. Ditto for the idea that that dreams of rebuilt empire are also all just the fault of the West.
912 was the day that the last caliphate was defanged.
Government can already do that with technology that existed before 911. I would expect that the data aggregators have adapted with the times and can tell you what your social media identities are and who all of your real accomplices are.
I'm working on my Drone Highwayman costume right now. I'll be rolling in pizzas in no time.
I could list a few left-wing conspiracy theories, including my one friend's theory that the Clinton Death Lists
You think it was the Left that started the Clinton Death List conspiracy theory?
