Comment Re:love the subtle anti-brexit push (Score 1) 169

England (GB) is an island nation so the cost of many things has always been higher, American fast foods amongst them. For example compare the price of a BigMac in Hawaii or Alaska. I spent several contract terms there in the early 90's and found that the average citizen spent a larger portion of their income on basics like housing and food then in the US, even at that time. What I find odd is the currency based on sterling silver is falling in relation to a soft backed currency based on 'confidence'. Seems like someone is gaming the system. But I am not an economist so what do I know...

You would think that the first thing you would do after accepting the job as cyber security poster child would be to run out and make sure your shit was secure. Being a political appointee I would not expect Rudy J to do it himself, but at least hire someone competent to do a review for you.

Very recently my GF was at a mall in NorCal and went to use the restroom. She came out afterwards and looked very odd so I asked her what was the matter, actually I said snarkily " Did everything come out alright" and she replied " No that there was a strange 'lady' in there staring at people" Apparently the 'Lady' was strange enough that several others felt so uncomfortable with that they reported her to security. It turns out the 'Lady' was a guy dressed up as a woman hanging out in the bathroom peeping at women using the rest room, so don't tell me there are no issues with so called gender identification cases.

Not to be an apologist for a telecom company, in this case Verizon, but holy crap 500 GB is a lot of 4G/LTE data used in a month, even 200 GB on a single cell device is a lot of data. I personally can't imagine using that much data or spending that much time on a smart device. What uses would other /. residents find for that amount of data, unless it was your only access point, e.g. you had no wireless at home or were on the road as a full time mobile user ?
