Comment Re:Public roads? (Score 1) 469

It might not be the drivers' intentions to reduce highway capacity, but driving on a highway DOES reduce capacity for everyone else (to the tune of one vehicle). In large numbers, drivers can completely clog a road/highway and they then start complaining about there not being enough capacity for them all without realising that they are part of the problem.

It can be an issue as pretty much all sources of B-12 are meat and fish based, so a vegan is unlikely to get enough of it unless they make a special effort. Most foods aren't fortified with B-12 as B-12 deficiency is rare (unless you're a vegan). Also, as the body stores B-12 for about a year or so, it'll take a while for any deficiency to take effect.

Isn't a B-12 deficient diet an example of malnutrition?

Why SHOULD they think for themselves? They're explicitly paid to perform a specified job, so if they start questioning it, they'll just get replaced with someone who will just shut up and get on with it.

After all, they get paid to write code and then get paid to write the code that should have been specified in the first place.

Don't blame them for poorly/short-sighted written contracts.

Surely "American" is more than a nationality. "American" covers anyone born on the American continent (i.e North America and South America). This means that Brazilians, Mexicans, Canadians etc can all be classified as American.

However, a lot of people believe that "American" only covers the U.S.A.
