Yeah, 70 years ago in Germany you did NOT want guys in brown shirts knocking on your door!
Not everybody can afford a Kindle. My library card didn't cost me a thing to request
Ah, brilliant logic. It didn't cost YOU anything, therefore it is free. Hate to break this to you, but libraries are expensive. Now, I support libraries, but they are not these free resources that just sprout out of the ground. They cost a lot and the money comes from somewhere.
Yeah, the funny thing is my property tax statement itemizes how the taxes I pay each year are divided up.
This past year, my tax statement says that $174.20 of my taxes went toward the library. I saw a 6" Kindle on Amazon for $69. Wi-fi only. So even if I purchased or say my property taxes paid for that Kindle, I'd still have to buy Wi-Fi to use it. That's just so I can use it personally. There's no ability to share that Kindle with anybody. And there is nowhere to physically meet the other people in the community.
Now if you think paying $174.20 is expensive for a library, I paid $2,143 to the local school district. I don't have any kids in school, but I still have to pay for the schools. If you wanted to save money so badly, maybe we should stop paying for public schools and use the money to pay for Kindles instead so kids can learn from those.

My library card didn't cost me a thing to request and I can check out as many books as I can read for free as long as they are returned on time. Heck, I can even check out CD's, DVDs and puzzles for my kid.
Public libraries are great sources for local history, in-person social networking, and meetings on how to become more involved in the local community and volunteering.
Dear Strong Bad,
How do you tweet with boxing gloves on?
I mean, you must hit that 160 character limit every time you touch your smartphone and smash all the keys at once with those things.
Seriously, your twitter feed must look like:
My wife and I visited Ludington a few years ago. I love the West side of Michigan.
We were really impressed by the number of people that turned out on a Saturday morning the week before Memorial Day to plant flowers and beautify the town for Tourist season. If an employer looking for a Senior System Engineer was in Ludington or even Muskegon, we would move there in a heartbeat.
This isn't the first time an organ has been regenerated inside an animal.
It's been documented for several years that after a partial liver removal, humans can regenerate livers.

I believe I got hit by this about a week ago when I clicked on an advert linked on Chicago Tribune's website.
A fullscreen message appeared saying my computer had been encrypted and I had to pay $300 to decrypt it. I pulled my network cable out and had to power off my PC because the keyboard would not work. I was able to boot back up, but when I logged in both regularly and in Safe-Mode, a full white screen saying "please connect to the Internet" appeared and I couldn't use the keyboard again.
I pressed F8 on boot and booted into Safe-Mode Command line only. Once I logged in and saw the command line, I typed rstrui.exe (windows System Recovery) and using the Restore Wizard, restored to a checkpoint from a day earlier. I restarted my PC again and let it boot normally and once I was able to log in without seeing the message, reconnected my network cable.
My PC was never encrypted. The message only said it was. The clincher was before I booted Windows in Safe-Mode, I used a Knoppix DVD to mount the Windows partition and copy off my personal data before I started the recovery process. The data was perfectly readable and not encrypted.
ZOMG There's no stars. This must be a NASA staged event and didn't really happen... on the moon.
Take a closer look towards Iapetus. There's a monolith there that's full of stars.
The 'heat vision' idea might work. Too bad we don't have anything that could direct microwave/RAdio energy into space to Detect And Range the object.
But the California scientists azure us that the system will work.
The question is, how many languages can you have with binary based languages?
How about 10?
The bogosity meter just pegged.
