Yeah, that happened to me once -- passing two vehicles at the same time, downhill, just as I completed the pass, there is the cop. Oy.

One can ask the same thing about nuclear arsenals....

Do you really believe a dictator that remained in power this long doesn't know how far he can go and how far not? Occams Razor.....
Yes, well "we" (the US) have used our nukes. But that is neither here nor there.

How long did the Ba'athists and Sadaam run Iraq? Since the early 1960s? Sadaam used them. I believe a dictator who has been in power that long has difficulty understanding when he's lost. The concept is not easily understood by him. Would he rather the people loved him? Sure. But he'd rather rule with the Iron Fist and fear than not rule.

I don't think Assad would use chemical weapons casually -- "Oh screw it, just gas them." But if/when he was feeling backed into a corner... he'd do it.

And yeah, the whole Syria thing is a huge wtf. I don't buy for 1 second that Assad used chem weapons. What would he gain from that and what would others gains from that? Seems to me the only ones profiting are the "rebels" and the military industrial complex. And Assad is highly educated, he would NEVER allow chem weapon use.
Sarcasm?

I have no doubt Assad would do it. What would he gain? The same thing anyone gains using those weapons, generating fear in his enemies. Now, did he do it? I don't know. But it wouldn't surprise or shock me. Did you think he was collecting chemical weapons in order to not use them?

What's happening in Syria is people are dying in a civil war. And soon more people will be dying as other nations feel they need to get involved due to the obscene turn the war has taken. It is a total no win situation most everyone involved.

I'd really like to hear what these companies would find on me doing this stuff. I mean, yeah -- I have an Internet foot print. I have an on-line account for my mortgage, my 401k and my brokerage account but I'm not on any social sites, and obviously things like commenting on Blue's News is off the radar.

I use my own mail server. If my emails are scanned they arent from my end.
1. Are you sure about that?
2. Even if you are right, so? You think that gives you some protection?

I see these cards at most retail stores, but have never met anyone that has mentioned they play it.
I could say the same about all the trading card games except for Magic, actually know 2 or 3 people who played that.

WoW was always an empty, cookie-cutter MMO.
Maybe. But even if that's true, they did it better than anyone had before them.

Uh, I would have assumed they were removed long ago considering the decision of starting from scratch. Sounds like a report of a lazy HR person more than anything else....

Yeah, Affleck wouldn't have been my first choice, but I'm willing to wait and see his performance before deciding. But the last three films were so good I rather that they would have waited a bit longer before doing another Batman movie.

News Comments > Steve Ballmer to Retire
42. Re: Steve Ballmer to Retire Aug 23, 2013, 19:24 Mr. Tact
 
Wow -- was watching CNBC and they said today someone bought 20k MSFT $45 Jan 15 calls for $0.75 each. It was up 7.29% today to $34.75. So, basically someone is betting MSFT will go up more than another 30% in the next 16 months. Assuming they meant 20k contracts, which is usually what you do when you talk options, that means someone bet $1.5M.

Unless your neighbors are jerks, or Hudson and Gunnar-man go berserk more often than you have previously indicated, I'm sure any unhappiness with you will quickly fade.

I'm not happy with the seemingly over the top data collection the NSA appears to have been engaged in (nor was I particularly surprised by it). However, going from there to an assumption that we don't need them at all is naive, at best.

Except for a brief 6 month period, all my cars have been manuals since 1980. But I have to say, I'm thinking this might be my last. Should need a new car around 2020 or so... I might finally cave.
