I'm only going to say this once, so take notes.
PVC Conduit, and rusty barbed wire.
- Insert conduit up recipients back passage.
- Insert rusty barbed wire through conduit.
- Remove conduit, and use it to smack recipient across the arse and back of thighs, forcing them to run with the barbed wire inserted.
> Is it his job to save the planet then?
Actually, yes. Given that he is the boss of Amazon, he has to ensure that Amazon remains viable. Remaining viable means NOT rendering the planet uninfuckinghabitable.
Unlivable planet = no people.
No people = no customers for Amazon.
So, basically, yes it is his fucking job to save the planet
Then entire stock market is a pump n dump Ponzi scheme.
How else could any company be "worth" billions of dollars, and yet one weeks worth of no sales has them begging on the government doorstep for a fucking bailout?
The opening of the Dow should be done by Drew Carey every morning. "Welcome to the Dow Jones Index. Where the valuations are made up, and the points don't matter."
Because they've already donated masks sourced from within their supply chain.
This is something they can actually produce quickly, rather than having to retool. It won't stop you from breathing it in, but it will stop droplets of spittle hitting your face when someone coughs, and will be a handy reminder not to touch your face to begin with.
Yes, like how Donald Trump tried to sue Julius and Edmond Trump, for daring to have the same surname as him.
Or when he tried to sue Merv Griffin for daring to be a competitor on a bid to buy a casino.
Or when he tried to sue the Chicago Tribune over an opinion piece that doubted his ability to build a tower taller than the Sears tower. An opinion which was somewhat justified given Trump hadn't even hired an architect to design anything.
Or suing an author, and his publisher, for daring to estimate Trumps fortunes to be only millions, not billions.
Or suing Scotland over a wind farm.
Or how he tried to get a video game banned because it depicted a rival's casino, and not his.
Or how he just threatens to sue anyone, at any time, for saying anything that hurts his feels?
> I'm sure many a person here has groaned at the problems caused by too long filenames in DOS and early Windows
That problem is still there, only now it applies to the combination of folder and file names totaling more than 256 characters.
Anyone who has had to restore files for users who believe that the folder structure can have an infinite amount of characters, knows this pain.
Maliciously comply every step of the way.
1. Excise all references to the Talmud, Bible and Quaran from their platforms due to their outdated beliefs on child rape and abuse.
2. Remove all pics, and even references of children from their platforms, you know, just to 100% comply with the law, just in case.
You could always go after the manufacturers of chipsets, and phones, under the "Right to Repair" legislation should it ever get passed.
If the increased support costs leads to increased parts and thus increased phone prices, that too, will be a good thing, as it will slow down the upgrade cycle, and lead to less in the landfill.
> Admittedly it's a bit shit, but it works, and it's reliable and secure.
Well, it was secure....
But apart from my pedantry over information less than 24 hours old on this publication, your point stands.
I only use Edge on a new build, to visit Ninite and get everything I need to replace Winbloat with functional software.
Although, sometimes I use Bing, to search for Chrome, and click on the Ad for Chrome, just so Google has to pay MS a few cents. Petty, yes, but when you do dozens of builds weekly for customers, you gotta find fun in the monotony somehow.
