They has to expose the mice to a 20 year equivalent of radiation to see the effect, how does that confirm the results? 1 of the 7 astronauts also died in a motorcycle accident, does that mean deep space radiation increases your chance of being killed on a motorcycle by several orders of magnitude?

You don't need to retire. You could move to Vegas today, get a job making the same money, and buy a nice house with the same money you're currently plowing into rent.

A number of companies offer kits to add Bluetooth to your stock head units. We added Bluetooth, hands free phone and audio streaming to our 2007 Honda Odyssey with no impact to the head unit or steering wheel controls. The only change was a button I had to add to the dash (to answer calls, or initiate voice dialing) and a microphone above the driver side a-frame for hands free calls. Cost me ~$100

Some people pirate due to availability and antiquated regional licensing models. There are several shows me and my wife watch that I cannot obtain in any legal manner in Canada.

You don't get it, the 2nd amendment is sacrosanct. If you mention something as simple as putting background checks checks in place, or maybe not giving automatic rifles the the mentally ill , the NRA response is "burn him, burn him". On the other hand the 1st amendment and 4th through 8th can go right into the shredder because "terrorism"
