Well, it beats making them into the world's most complicated airplanes as with the space shuttle. SpaceX has proven that they can do vertical landings of the first stage intact onto both land and a seagoing barge; after a trip out of the atmosphere and to about 1/5 of orbital velocity but not into orbit. They plan to do a parachute-less vertical landing of the Dragon capsule after a heat-shield re-entry. That turns out to be far less expensive and complicated than a space plane. It does turn out we need a lifting body for much larger vehicles. It still doesn't have to be a plane, though.
We don't need wings.
All I know about them is they hate blacks, Jews, and Catholics (presumably all non-protestants, but as I said, I'm ignorant). What views do they have that aren't hateful? I'm curious.
As to BLM, the entire reason that movement HAD to happen was because there really ARE people who think black lives DON'T matter, including black gangsters and bigoted whites. You have some citation for BLMers advocating hatred or violence?
Like the late humorist Will Rogers said in the 1930s, "all I know is what I read in the papers" and I have a LOT more newspapers available than he did, thanks to the internet.
Try shutting a few things off. On my phone, when I use my bluetooth speaker, half the time it will reboot itself because Google decides that's exactly when it should update an app I never use and wish I could remove. I found that shutting off wi-fi makes it crash less.
And just what part of your ass did you pull that "statistic" from?
Oh, BTW, you may be running Linux or BSD yourself and not even know it -- Android is Linux and Apple is BSD. In fact, about the only computers that aren't running BSD or Linux are Windows desktops and laptops.
It SHOULD treat it as a USB memory device, it may not, though. Whenever I plug either of my tablets or my phone in either Win7 laptop it looks for drivers. It even looks for drivers when I plug in a thumb drive!
No I have to moderate a different thread because I just undid mods... damn.
Obvious to me as well. He doesn't really want to run the country, he thinks he can make a lot of money running. It almost seems like he's TRYING to lose!
:"Anti-Trump" in the sense that they laugh at him and his blatant lies.
Yes, it was. I had the maid show me how to work the coffeemaker later. I'd have known if I'd bothered to read the coffee packet.
Some of the blur may have been because I was so shaky after hiking outside with all those books and falling down. That last photo is bad because there wasn't much light,
The blurry pics are from Patty's new Samsung. I reduced resolution as well, because when I run out of hosting space at mcgrewbooks.com where the photos actually are (they won't fit in the mcgrew.info's 10 megs) it will cost a lot more. The Sith is cropped way down, he was across the room.
That first picture, the worldcon logo, came from Google. The covers to "Random Scribblings" are GIMPed photos I took with the same phone I took to Worldcon.
I would have probably made a fool of myself if I'd gone to the first Midamericon in 1969 in St. Louis, but I was seventeen.
Most of today's junkies are far different than they use to be, although old school junkies still exist. These days, the drug pushers are doctors and pharmaceutical companies who are handing out very potent, addictive drugs like candy. Once the oxycodone gets you, you discover that heroin bought on the street is a lot cheaper than what "Doctor Pusher" is pushing.
So your garden variety "would never take drugs" upstanding citizen winds up dead of a heroin overdose. Having a place like that might save some lives and get addiction treatment for some of them.
It's hard for people to be rational about drugs.
I can hear the 80s era commercial version of their service.
"Is that pesky first amendment getting in your way?
Is someone saying things about you that you don't like?
Did someone publicize something sleazy that you did but was recorded without your knowledge?
We can help. We'll sue them into oblivion and maybe get you some money in the process.
There's no fee unless WE get money for YOU!"

I had more fun this weekend than I have in years! Patty and I attended this year’s World Science Fiction Convention in Kansas City.
Patty had said that she would be at my mom’s house in Belleville around one, and I got there a little before.
She got caught in constru
I don't know about the bank with my checking accounts, but it appears that the three for my credit cards are pretty well-designed, and inputs appear to be sanitized.
I have seen e-commerce sites with the problems you pointed out.
