House Committee Approves Bill Banning In-Flight Phone Calls
I thought drinking age laws were coerced on the States with the threat of pulling road funding rather than mandated through the Interstate commerce clause.

IAAF Competition Rules, Rule 143
2. Athletes may compete barefoot or with footwear on one or both feet.
The purpose of shoes for competition is to give protection and
stability to the feet and a firm grip on the ground. Such shoes,
however, must not be constructed so as to give an athlete any unfair
additional assistance, including by the incorporation of any
technology which will give the wearer any unfair advantage. A shoe
strap over the instep is permitted. All types of competition shoes must
be approved by IAAF.
USPTO Asks For Input On Software Patents
Doesn't the U.S. Federal Government have Sovereign Immunity?
UK Authorities Threaten To Storm Ecuadorian Embassy To Arrest Julian Assange
but they can still cause a buttload of trouble in the U.N. if the U.K. does it.
No they can't. The UK has a veto at the UN. If the UK abstains because they are directly involved in the incident, the US also has a veto.
Wikipedia Edits Forecast Romney's Vice Presidential Pick
If a state chooses to recognize a contract between two opposite sex, two same sex, or 3 same or mixed sex partners its the sates business, not the federal government.
Does the Federal government give tax benefits to married people? If so, they need a definition of "married". That definition could be "as legally defined in your state" but I don't know enough about the US Constitution to know if it would be legal to have the Federal government tax people differently based on which state they live in.
Apple Support Allowed Hackers Access To User's iCloud Account
Why do you have to answer the questions with the correct answers? As long as you remember how you answered them, it doesn't matter if the answers are actually correct. Your first pet could be George W. Bush. Your elementary school could be Starfleet Academy.
The World's First 3D-Printed Gun
If everyone in that theater was armed and had at least rudimentary firearms safety training... how far do you think the crazy guy would have gotten?
Obviously, nobody can answer a hypothetical question. However, let me ask one in return. How many people would have died in the crossfire if everyone in that theater was armed, only had rudimentary firearms safety training, and all started firing trying to take the crazy guy down? It was dark and smoky. The movie special effects were ongoing. If everyone pulled weapons and started shooting, I'm sure that at least one would be hero would have been misidentified as an accomplice by another would be hero.
Lessons Learned From Cracking 2M LinkedIn Passwords
Two factor authentication.
GNU/Linux Running On An 8-Bit Processor
That may be, but DOS was 16-bit, as was Windows 3.0 and 3.1. Until OS/2 2.0 and Windows 95, there was no particular need for a 386 - a 286 would have worked just fine.
A 386 provided Virtual 86 mode which was needed to multitask DOS applications.
Czech Nationwide Census Shows Jump In Jedi Knights
The US Congress declared war on Iraq, not Bush. The President of the United States does not have the power nor the authority to declare a war, which is why Obama broke the law when he had our military bomb Libya without cause, provocation or a declaration of war.
Congress hasn't declared war on anyone since World War II. Congress did authorize the use of military force in Iraq in 2002 based on what Bush thought to be appropriate.
Can Relativity Explain Faster Than Light Particles?
In reality, it's traveling at exactly the speed of light.
Don't neutrinos have mass? Can particles with mass be accelerated to light speed? Without reading the article or the paper and not having taken even a college physics class, I would have expected that a neutrino should have been traveling at near light speed rather than "exactly the speed of light".
IP Addresses Not Enough To ID Users
"We'll have a fair trial and then hang the guilty bastard."
Woman Sues Google Over Street View Shots of Her Underwear
For instance, off the path of the normal street view area, there area single pictures of things like shrines, etc.
Those individual pictures are probably not taken by Google but rather are some individuals photos linked in from Panoramio.
Web-Based Private File Storage?
Hitting a corpse with a wrench will reveal the password how, exactly?
Climate Researchers Fight Back
It's climate change, idiot.
I think it's even more specific than that. It's about human influenced climate change. Climate Change is a fact. The climate on this planet is constantly changing and has been changing naturally for as long as we have any way of measuring. The causes may be something as simple a cyclical changes in the energy output of the sun, volcanic eruptions, meteor impacts, or a multitude of other natural phenomenons. There's not much we can do to change the normal cycle of climate change. The question is what impact we are having on the climate with the stuff we are pumping in to the atmosphere and what, if anything, we should be doing about it.
Open Source Is Not a Democracy
Because everyone is a programmer, right?
If you aren't a programmer and still care that much, you could always PAY a programmer to do the work for you. At least you have the choice. If you don't like the interface changes in Windows 7, you don't have the option to either change it yourself or pay someone who knows how to change it for you.
New Attack Fells Internet Explorer
With Ubuntu I have no way of doing that.
They took cron out of Ubuntu? That seems silly.
26 Years Old and Can't Write In Cursive
You don't even need to know how to spell your own name in order to come up with a "Signature". Looking at mine you MIGHT be able to figure out my first initial and the first letter of my last name, but the rest is gibberish. Nobody cares what the signature actually says, as long as it matches whatever sample they happen to be looking at (e.g. back of credit card, drivers license, etc.)
26 Years Old and Can't Write In Cursive
If I'm trying to explain something while sitting on a terrace, I'm probably talking to the person I'm trying to explain the something to. The only use a pen and paper is going to be is drawing little diagrams to try and make the verbal explanation a little clearer. If I need to write something down to remember for later, I'll just jot it down on the smart phone that I "lug" everywhere with me anyway.
Besides, the prerequisite to explanations on terraces is usually copious amounts of alcohol. Drunk writing is usually as illegible as drunk texting.
Linux Patch Clears the Air For Use of Microsoft's FAT Filesystem
and there are those who wonder why people don't use linux
How many "normal" users would know how to format a disk in Windows? I would hazard a guess that most people get their storage devices pre-formatted and have never used the disk management interface.
