What happens when there's an electrical fire and you can't isolate the power supply? I might be wrong, but as far as I'm aware the flight crew have the ability to disable every piece of equipment on the aircraft.
While standing next to my 75 year-old complainant, Jared yelled the word "fuck" and clearly disturbed her peace.
As an outsider to the US — who is seriously envious of the 1st Amendment — how is this even an arrest-able office? Given that 43% Slashdot readers describe themselves as liberal/libertarian I doubt that many will support this — especially as Smith is only accused of shouting "fuck", not verbally abusing the lady — but is it likely the Sherif's office actually have a case?
Out of sheer curiosity, why is an SD card so important? What sort of data do you carry around on your phone that 64GB isn't enough.
I carry around a 64GB usb drive on my keyring, it contains a bootable Linux image, PuTTy a keepass file and some ssh keys. The rest (the vast majority) is zeroes.
That and the fact that coalition forces refused to allow Saddam Hussein era officials (and army officers) from serving in the new government and army. This resulted in a large number of well trained soldiers left with no job and a massive grudge.
Compare this to Germany - yes they had a massive de-nazification campaign, but civil servants and Hitler era officers were allowed to continue serving, under the watchful eye of allied forces.
2021 - "Why are you so concerned about his visitor logs, he's not president anymore..."
I'm not supposed that to doctors will give different diagnoses, but they also have to work with what they're given. A patient may give different details, especially if they've just spoken to a GP - they're likely to preempt questions that had to be asked previously.
This goes with every profession. A colleague of mine was being investigated by HMRC (tax) and was complaining that his accountant was still telling him it was ok to claim fuel, but the tax man wasn't. The problem was he didn't understand that by lying to the accountant (consciously or otherwise) she couldn't give him the correct info.
My first thought was that they were fake, but not for the same reason. I assumed that they'd stuck on extra bits so their great leader could show his people (and the gullible of the world) how well their missile programme is progressing.
Out of interest, do you always use the person's middle name when attributing quotes, or only when they have a "foreign sounding name"?
Maybe UA need to look at how their scheduling works, and make sure those very important staff are taken into account when flogging seats.
At the very least, those critical staff should have been put on the aircraft first, and then allow the passengers to board. At least then the *only* chaos would have been caused by preventing a paid-up and checked-in passenger from boarding, not having to use security to drag a customer off the aircraft.
Clearly UA had no idea that UA staff were going to be needed to fly on a UA flight down to another airport in order to work on a scheduled UA flight.
When I was a student I always asked if they were looking for standby seats. Unfortunately it never happened as cash is cash. The last time I had a threat of being bumped was in a group of 10 on a stag weekend. The problem there was that there were two flights a day so that would have fucked up the whole reason for the trip, so in that case we weren't happy about it.
If I had to be in work the next morning - like this guy - I'd be seriously pissed off about being bumped, regardless of how much cash they're throwing at me.
I've never managed that in the UK / Ireland.
Easy - if my computer dies, I'll just dig out a spare one, or if necessary buy a new one. How hard can it be to do the same with tractor.
I was going to rely with a joke about terrorists using exploding phones and not burner* ones, but then I released that was the Israelis.
* I'm not even convinced that current terrorists in the EU/USA would know to use burner phones - they seem to be too bloody stupid. The only reason they seem to succeed is sheer luck rather than skill. The current crop also seem to be drug using, alcohol drinking rentboys.
Nothing is faster than the speed of light ... To prove this to yourself, try opening the refrigerator door before the light comes on.
