Well that and at least three decades of laundering money for the Russians.

I doubt it. They look like they are made out of carbon fibre. Which it contractor has access to and autoclave and the knowledge how to use one?

They would also need the cad models of the car or else the thing won't attach to the car properly.

I would guess that the team designs and builds it and perhaps the IT partner recommends the parts. However, most likely the IT partner just gives them money and they put a sticker on it.

Pretty much any given contractor?

It's not like carbon fibre is some arcane cutting edge technology. Wouldn't even necessarily need to be autoclaved.

Because they were never supposed to lose the referendum - Brexit was never intended to be a serious proposal because it is so obviously damaging.

On the flip side the leave campaigners realised 20 years ago that putting forward realistic proposals just got them bogged down in inconvenient facts. What they needed to summon was the underdog spirit; hence the 'project fear' moniker and handwaving.

Oh god, not the hundreds of thousands of job losses again.

We will lose GDP, we will lose jobs we will create jobs. Eventually our GDP will return with other trade deals.

Regardless not all of us voted leave for a better life economically. Some of us voted leave to leave a political superstate, one that is heading towards being a united States of Europe.

Eventually? When? A century?

You think that the UK can negotiate favourable trade deals from such an obvious position of weakness when in two years our government can't even agree with itself on anything never mind the EU?

i'm a cold-hearted mathematician. my conclusion has nothing to do with revenge.

once you understand money flows you'll appreciate the logic behind it. the model is a bit complex, but for a more digestible perspective cast your memory back to the FDR era after the war .. a period when america was 'great' : personal taxes were 94% for anything above today's $400k, and company taxes were 70%.

another perspective is what 'revenge' is there in capping income at $1M ? who will this be hurting? is there anybody out there that truly needs more than this? simple minded 'but i earned it' arguments ignore what that income was earned off: public roads, tax breaks, the maintenance of the USD as the trading standard by a publicly funded military, dumping local labor in favor of slave labor overseas, etc.

That high tax band applied on salary, not capital gains. Most of the world's really rich people make the overwhelming bulk of their money from capital gains.

You vote in the elections. Elections. You make everyone you know vote every election.

The US population doesn't really bother to vote, only 60% of the eligible voters bothered to decide who would rule the mightiest nation of the entire world. Nearly half of the people you know are not voting at all. You make them vote.

Try looking these things up for yourself next time and you might not look like such a moron.

I imagine that the "freedom of speech" crowd (the extreme ones, not the reasonable ones) would be very angry with that suggestion. Though I think that it sounds like a reasonable idea.

There should be more discussion around the potential public safety issues though. I.e should someone charged but not found guilty of sexual activity with a child be allowed to work at a school or not? If not then that case there should probably be a check for it, even if reporting is prohibited.

It is quite complex balancing privacy vs public safety.

Well, do we believe in the principle of innocent until proven guilty or not?

To me, s8ggesting someone sticks something up there arse means you think it's shite and thus should go where shite comes from. Having canvassed my friends & colleagues that's their general thought behind the suggestion too.

In America it seems to suggest that you're saying he should use the item as a makeshift dildo.

Both are valid interpretations, but I still find it weird how much of an overreaction this is to what is a pretty standard UK turn of phrase...

Musk also thought that the only reason anyone would want to live in Thailand is to fuck children, so this is likely just more projection from Musk.

No, he was a local advisor to the dive team about the cave system.

The actual British divers were Richard William Stanton and John Volanthen.

He also brought those divers onboard.

It is the job of an engineer to make impractical things practical though.
Plenty of experts thought landing and reusing the first stage of an orbital rocket was impractical too.
Notice that making a working hyperloop doesn't have any scientific challenges, only engineering and business ones.

How do you differentiate a "scientific" challenge from an "engineering" challenge in this case.

I've always wondered about this, because it seems to me that Musk really doesn't know much about any subjects and gets very sensitive when actual experts (or even people who have taken basic intro courses on history and the liberal arts) correct him. His AI statements always seemed more based on science fiction than anything else to me, which is weird.

What, you mean like when he called the diver responsible for organising the rescue of those Thai boys a paedophile because he explained why Musk's stupid submarine wouldn't work?

But that’ll take too long to count. We need to know who our newly elected officials are within hours of voting. /s

So I'm from the UK, we use paper ballots and know exactly who's won within hours. Polls typically close at 10pm and the result is usually certain by 2am or so.

That’s quite good turnaround. I would expect longer but that’s about how long the states take on their current systems. Tbh, even if I didn’t find out until the next afternoon, it’d be worthwhile.

That's the point where most of the results have come in basically, usually the winner is clear by then. I tend to get the full results over breakfast.

You have to testify but whatever you say about Manafort- even if it’s some bullshit you got up to together, you can’t be prosecuted for that particular thing.

The witnesses can still be potentially prosecuted in the future for those activities; it just means their testimony on the Manafort case can not be used as evidence for such a future prosecution. And obviously they could be charged with perjury if they lie during their testimony.

Support your local market.

As the article highlights, Supermarkets cause these issues. While there's no alternative if you want to stock up on frozen pizza you can get fresh produce from local suppliers if you do a bit of hunting. I've got 2 local markets that run Saturday and let me get enough veg for the week no probs. It lasts longer than supermarket stuff as well, since it's fresher and travelled a shorter distance. I wish there was more we could do to advertise and promote local markets.
