Re: Apple has "forced" free stuff on u

Where do you get this idea that it a) takes 5 steps to stop the album from downloading and b) you have to do it on a per-song basis?

Re: Whither Scotland's Empire?

My sense, here on the eve of the vote, and for no reason other than personal intuition, is that "yes" will prevail. The world is going tribal and nationalistic in virtually every hemisphere and I find no reason the Scots should be any [more]

Re: Not Showing ID to Police

What you are saying, Al, is that, despite having the right to refuse, it is our responsibility to relinquish that right if a policeman insists we relinquish it.
What is the purpose of having a "right," if we have no "right"

Re: Apple has "forced" free stuff on u

Now I realize that going into the iTunes Store and clicking on a link to download an album is not nearly as annoying as going through all that, but making the recipient have to go get the gift makes it somehow less of a gift. Having a book I [more]

Taking over the Mrs. phone

Mrs. Goofy has a 4s, which she will probably not use again. She's been given a 5s at work, but it's probably a temporary thing and she will have to return it at some point and we'll get her her own 5s, or maybe a 6 or whatever.

I would like [more]

Re: Condi Rice for NFL commish!

Did Senator Gillibrand urge anyone to step down over "If you like your health insurance you can keep your health insurance"? I can't remember.

Re: Engineering for K-12 needed

In my opinion, it is the people. Inspire the best students to become teachers and the best teachers to stay teachers and you will have your problem solved. Get rid of all the gimmicks, learning system of the year, incessant standardized testing, [more]

Re: Plumbing repair

That DEFINITELY isn't allowed here. Even underground would not be allowed. Incoming water to the house MUST be copper.

Re: 401 K vs Private Retirement Plan

For example, should rural schools receive the same funds per student as urban schools?

No. There are, as you indicate, many complex variables. You may have a lower wage scale in rural areas - appropriate to the cost of living and the [more]

Re: Plumbing repair

I would skip the teflon tape altogether. Becasue of how slippery the teflon is, over-tightening is easy with teflon tape. I'd use pipe dope in a can instead. Teflon tape plus PVC seems like a recipe for splitting or deforming the PVC fitting. I [more]

Re: O/T: Renewable energy Revolution (NYT)--

The highest voltage transmission lines still lose about 1% every 100 miles. So bringing electricity 3000 miles adds about 26% losses to the 5% or so losses associated with local delivery. If we had truly excess power in the entire west, it might [more]

Re: Marriott--Tip Envelopes in Rooms Program

It's definitely demanding grunt labor. I applaud Marriott's experiment.

Re: 401 K vs Private Retirement Plan

Most of us believe that property taxes on property in the area should support those schools.
