Do I need to point out the Wiccans and Satanists belong to completely different religions?
Lucifer is a Christian deity whom Wiccans (as a breed, it;'s a pretty eclectic group of traditions) don't recognize.
Blood (or any other kind) sacrifice isn't part of Wiccan rituals.
Oh well, to the fundies since we aren't with them we must be serving the devil. "By their works ye shall kn ow them" ::-)
>Begs the question, what are they called if there isn't a war on? Peace keepers? The Unemployed?
As the old joke goes "in case of war: break glass". Eventually they'll get stasis chambers for them. But I still say 'warriors' would be a better generic term :-).
Y'all forget that the military has finance systems, personnel systems, training systems, communications (e.g. email), performance reporting, and a blinding array of forms that are being put online. Most systems aren't for weaponry, just like most personnel are support services not combat troops (USMC excepted)
No, by 5 they understand that if you torment or chase the cat you will get scratched or bitten.
OTOH cats are pretty good at training children. When my ~9mo kid was bothering our cat she stopped, put her paw gently on his cheek and extended her claws so he got the point(s). No scratch, but he learned quickly.
Naaa. Group it in high orbit and then use orbital mylar solar mirrors to smelt it. The resulting ball of stuff could be used for orbital construction, or de-orbited in some relatively insignificant place in the middle east ;-)
I'm sure us 'murricans can come up with a candidate.or two
>>I dunno, eating fermented cabbage while you are living in what is essentially an air-tight tin can doesn't sound like a good idea to me. I bet his crewmates were thrilled.
Especially given the other major ingredients are garlic (lots) and red pepper. Breath, pores, and flatulent emmisions
At the risk of being picky, fission bombs often have a beryllium core that is a neutron emitter when squeezed by the conventional explosives. That is one way you can get a pocket nuke with what would normally be a sub critical mass.
People seem to be missing that the intent of the fusion reactor is to _greatly_ reduce the amount of waste materials. If you get a net positive energy return that is gravy.
We should IMHO see if scales to commercial use. Nuclear power of some variety is all be a requirement if we want to get off fossil fuels and have something beyond an 18th (or 13th) century level economy.
The remaining waste can be glassified, canned, and shot by big linear accelerator ( a.k.a rail gun) into an inward spiral towards 'mother nature's fusion reactor' for total disposal.
Y'all might be interested in an article that largely indicates another cause and discounts pesticides, reported November 18 in Reno, Nev., at the annual meeting of the Entomological Society of America.:
Virus could explain one symptom of colony collapse

As it happens, the immunity is against civil suits for privacy infringement, which a pardon wouldn't affect. They are for criminal offenses (how about 'aiding and abetting'?).
Besides, the Govt took the amusing position that fact of whether or not the intercepts took place is in itself a state secret :-(
From my point of view enabling companies to assist the 'Guardians of Freedom' in committing crimes is a real bad idea. There is enough collusion and 'nudge, nudge, wink, wink' as it is. Worse there is general criminal immunity for acts committed in office and impeachment is all but impossible. (perhaps 'judge not, lest you be judged' ;-) )
From a user standpoint the issue is not the search engine (what search engine? :-) ) The really scary thing is that for us 'murkins most of the ISPs like Prodigy, AT&T/Cingular, and Verizon farm their email (at least web access and mail clients) out to Yahoo. And as others have pointed out the Yahoo groups are widely used. I wouldn't want that hijacked by M$.
I've often wondered how it would play out when a citizen from a non-compliant state was summoned to federal court or a congressional hearing. If you can't get into a federal building....
Fortunately, the chances of the various state and federal information systems ever being able to communicate even given a common is nill.
