I don't understand how this isn't currently the law.
That one is easy. It's all about one word: "unreasonable".
I find unreasonable that SCOTUS does not see border searches as unreasonable. And SCOTUS finds unreasonable my opinion that border searches are unreasonable.
"Don't worry. This will be used only as a demo/proof of concept and never in production".
Actually that's a lie told to me by the management and I tend to believe it up to the date when the demo happens.
You must have some type of distortion when projecting a map of a globe on a flat plane
You can make a non-distorting projection of Earth to a globe. You can also make the globe big enough so that the curvature is virtually indistinguishable from a flat plane in the area that fits in the classroom. Then you just cut off the parts of the globe that are not relevant to the lecture
The command line still after all these years is so utterly broken
a) true, the pressure is 1atm. On how big area? What force does that mean?
b) the scenario that is, in my opinion, dangerous, is a rupture of the capsule that is pressurized to 1atm surrounded by near vacuum. Followed by a collapse of the tube that results from the pieces of the capsule flying in all directions.
However the biggest problem I see from my chair is keeping a relatively fragile tube stretching hundreds of kilometers airtight, undamaged and secure from pissed farmers, drunk idiots, gun fans, vandals and other similar factors.
... but few people with any sense
Unfortunately top officials of USA nor NK do not fall into that category.
