Does "vote by mail" require any sort of ID? If not, how on earth is this more secure than a ballot box?
Washington state requires you to provide a driver license number or state ID number when registering to vote online (WA state license numbers are a combination of a person's initials, last name, and date of birth). You also have to check a box that says you're a US citizen and another box saying you'll be over 18 by the time of the next election. They also have a text-based CAPTCHA at the end of the form so you know that there can't be any sort of fraud.
Indeed. I'm not sure Disney has had a truly original concept since Steamboat Wille. Disney, an entire entertainment empire built on a single cartoon.
Steamboat Willie was based heavily on the Buster Keaton movie Steamboat Bill Jr. which came out earlier that year. It was the first Mickey Mouse cartoon to get a distributor, since Disney couldn't find a distributor for the two earlier Mickey Mouse cartoons.
11 million heads of lettuce a YEAR... is that supposed to be something special?
The impressive part is that the 11 million heads of lettuce are grown with a footprint of roughly 1 acre. From the photos it appears that the crops are produced on 4 tier grow shelves. If robots are doing most of the work I see no reason why this couldn't be expanded vertically to the point where they are growing 100+ million heads of lettuce per year per acre.
I had to read a little more carefully (I had the same question) but it does actually say 'pickup truck'. I'm all for it; I like driving small pickups. What I've wondered all along is why someone hasn't done this already? Seems like a no-brainer to me. You could build the battery packs right under the bed, no problem.
GM made and sold an electric Chevy S10 for the '97 & '98 model years. They had the same drivetrain as the EV1. They even sold some outright to fleet customers rather than exclusively leasing, so a few dozen escaped being destroyed when GM crushed all the lease returns of the EV1.
I wonder what the service and Q&A was like on Blue Origin after the first flight? How many components needed repair or replacement? That is why Space X is taking care with it's first reflight after successful return landing. I'm sure they learned much from their first success.
According to the Blue Origin site, "Data from the November mission matched our preflight predictions closely, which made preparations for today’s re-flight relatively straightforward. The team replaced the crew capsule parachutes, replaced the pyro igniters, conducted functional and avionics checkouts, and made several software improvements, including a noteworthy one."
I don’t believe there aren’t any theaters in the Seattle area that are that cheap even for a matinée.
Sorry, second sentence should read, "I don’t believe there are any theaters..." rather than aren't.
so violence against men is socially acceptable?
