Taser the minors, shoot the adults, but with non-lethal rounds.
At least for the first offence.

Might as well unload my magazine and pelt the twat with my rounds by hand, one at a time.

Seriously, which parent would give a kid a laser pointer and let them BLIND someone with it unsupervised? And at an airport too!

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Although there have been no known incidents of an airplane actually crashing due
to a laser strike, the FBI says there have been eye injuries, enough to make the
current "epidemic" of laser attacks a serious threat to aviation security."

Same shit happens in Russia. Started like a year or two ago.

South Korea to extend range of missiles

YouTube
Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

Quote:
South Korea has reached a deal with the United States to increase the range of Seoul's ballistic missiles.

The new agreement extends the limit to 800 kilometres. That's enough to cover the whole of North Korea, along with parts of China and Japan.

Nobel Prize awarded to two scientists responsible for major cloning and stem cell adv

Quote:
Two scientists whose stem-cell research was separated by over four decades have been announced as the winners of 2012's Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. Sir John B. Gurdon of Cambridge, UK discovered in 1962 that the "specialization" of cells is reversible — in his experiment, he replaced an immature cell nucleus in an egg cell of a frog with a cell that had matured and developed into an intestinal cell. Despite this change, the frog egg cell matured into a normal tadpole, proving that the mature intestinal cell still contained all the relevant DNA necessary to develop all of the tadpole's cells. His findings were a direct challenge to the prevailing wisdom that once a pluripotent stem cell (an immature cell that is capable of developing into all of the cell types in a fully mature organism) matured into a specific cell type, it no longer contained the DNA data that maturation process.

To me, it's an healthy sign of independence that the new SC isn't going to take questionable orders from the Palace (despite that most of the justices are Aquino appointees); this, I think, is what "checks and balances" are all about in what should be good governance.

Copyright Scofflaws Beware: ISPs to Begin Monitoring Illicit File Sharing:

"The nation’s major internet service providers by year’s end will institute a so-
called six-strikes plan, the “Copyright Alert System” initiative backed by the
Obama administration and pushed by Hollywood and the major record labels to
disrupt and possibly terminate internet access for online copyright scofflaws.

The plan, now four years in the making, includes participation by AT&T,
Cablevision Systems, Comcast, Time Warner Cable and Verizon. After four
offenses, the historic plan calls for these residential internet providers to initiate
so-called “mitigation measures” (.pdf) that might include reducing internet speeds
and redirecting a subscriber’s service to an “educational” landing page about
infringement."

Like I say over in the elections thread, voting is choice between two sorts of evil. With the Democrats, you have to fight the "imaginary property" loonies. I'll be re-upping my EFF membership.

Look for these plans to be challenged in the courts as soon as they screw it up. The IP-doesn't-equal-perp is already in jurisprudence, monitoring every single protocol for every instance of every misnamed file .... yeah, sure. Not happening.

They're basically just going to watch torrents with torrent IP harvesters and send out C&Ds as strike counters. And it'll be mostly US imaginary properties - choose better stuff to watch?
And it isn't every ISP, so if you're using one of the above named nimrods and have a choice, consider moving to that other choice. If you don't have a choice, write your congressmen and ask why you don't have a choice.

Final note: they've been saying "any minute now" on this New Internet Regime for several years now. As you might expect from technical illiterates who want something technical - its a lot harder than it sounds.

Billionaire CEO Threatens To Fire Employees If Obama Wins

Quote:
The CEO of a massive timeshare company sent an email about the upcoming election to his employees yesterday, threatening to fire some of them if President Obama wins re-election.
David Siegel, who owns Florida-based Westgate Resorts, sent an email to all his employees yesterday to discuss the upcoming election. “The economy doesn’t currently pose a threat to your job,” Siegel wrote, noting that the company is “the most profitable [it's] ever been.” “What does threaten your job however, is another 4 years of the same Presidential administration.” He went on to say that although he “can’t tell you whom to vote for,” if Obama is re-elected, it would mean “fewer jobs, less benefits and certainly less opportunity for everyone.”

There needs to be some kind of organised boycott of the IPs that go along with this.

IPs aren't going to stick to it when they start shedding subscribers.

Sounds like he wants to be sued. That's both coercion and wrongful termination. He may think he's avoiding legal trouble by saying he can't tell you who to vote for, but by outright saying if one party wins he's going to cut jobs, that's a direct threat to attempt to force employees to vote one way or another.

Depending on which provider it is, you could probably just call them and tell them to screw off and they have no proof etc., and they'd remove your strike. If they don't, then you threaten to go elsewhere. Most would rather just remove the strike.
