Am I wrong here?
Or would introducing a higher concentration of nitrogen possibly cause "the bends" when coming out of that environment and a potential way to punish certain parties?

It's not a matter of "buying", which is a whole other level of issues. (You cannot purchase a handgun from an out of state dealer, it has to be shipped to one in state to perform the necessary background checks)
This is a matter of carrying a handgun on your person in your day-to-day life. Some states take a "must issue" stance in which the state must issue the permit unless the background check fails. Some take a "may issue" stance in which the local LEO (Head Law Enforcement Office) can choose to approve or deny. In "may issue" jurisdictions, there's a lot of talk about the system being biased for those who are politically connected or willing to offer something "under the table" to get the permits approved.
And in the US, any firearm purchased from a federally licensed dealer must perform a background check (that involves querying a national crime database) to complete the transfer. A private party can sell a firearm to another private party, but if the seller is caught "in the business of selling firearms" they get hammered pretty severely.
This allows someone to sell a weapon they no longer want causally, without having to bear the expense of going through an FFL to complete the transaction. Since this would involve transferring the weapon to the FFL, who then has to document the weapon make, model, serial number, etc, and then that FFL transferring it again to another person, it creates a bunch of paperwork that the FFL is required to keep for 10 years.
The best description of the US prison system is "demonic". Between the inter-inmate predation, and the unholy charges to talk to family via phone, the entire system is a gross failure of US society.
The entire system is designed to incarcerate slaves and put them to work in the "Prison-Industrial" complex on a scale that would shame China.
I'm a hacker who cracked your email and device a few months ago.
You entered a password on one of the sites you visited, and I intercepted it.
This is your password from <my email> on moment of hack: <password I've never used>
Of course you can will change it, or already changed it.
But it doesn't matter, my malware updated it every time.
Do not try to contact me or find me, it is impossible, since I sent you an email from your account.
Through your email, I uploaded malicious code to your Operation System.
I saved all of your contacts with friends, colleagues, relatives and a complete history of visits to the Internet resources.
Also I installed a Trojan on your device and long tome spying for you.
You are not my only victim, I usually lock computers and ask for a ransom.
But I was struck by the sites of intimate content that you often visit.
I am in shock of your fantasies! I've never seen anything like this!
So, when you had fun on piquant sites (you know what I mean!)
I made screenshot with using my program from your camera of yours device.
After that, I combined them to the content of the currently viewed site.
There will be laughter when I send these photos to your contacts!
BUT I'm sure you don't want it.
Therefore, I expect payment from you for my silence.
I think $821 is an acceptable price for it!
Pay with Bitcoin.
My BTC wallet: 1YnYAxprVrTo1WzPPzMo86ste5Ssp4xsy
If you do not know how to do this - enter into Google "how to transfer money to a bitcoin wallet". It is not difficult.
After receiving the specified amount, all your data will be immediately destroyed automatically. My virus will also remove itself from your operating system.
My Trojan have auto alert, after this email is read, I will be know it!
I give you 2 days (48 hours) to make a payment.
If this does not happen - all your contacts will get crazy shots from your dark secret life!
And so that you do not obstruct, your device will be blocked (also after 48 hours)
Do not be silly!
Police or friends won't help you for sure ...
p.s. I can give you advice for the future. Do not enter your passwords on unsafe sites.
I hope for your prudence.
ADSL2+ (the most common technology on landlines) will only do 12.5M max. In order to provide 25M, the provider is looking at Bonded Pair (which sucks up twice as many lines) or VDSL, which required grooming the old lines. And in many areas, especially the "rural" ones, the county commissions refuse to permit the upgrades without hefty "fees".
You mean the same FBI that has interfered in the smooth transition of power and a select few have decided they know better than the American Electorate? Why wouldn't we trust them with a universal back door. It's not like they've abused their power and wiretapped candidates and elected officials just because they didn't like them.
I still say your best defense is an offensive offense. Make your password "Sodoffyoufuckingwanker"
Then, you can give your password with impunity. And they'll of course refuse try it. Then, when you go to court, you simply say that you provided them the password and they still violated your human rights because they didn't believe you.
"This employee works well when cornered like a rat and under constant supervision."
That being said, I know one person who suspected a particular former employer was providing a bad and biased reference. Due to her separation, she had already engaged a lawyer. They had their receptionist call and ask for a reference. Which what then added to the suit for sexual harassment and wrongful termination. Which, in Florida where this happened, is almost never decided in the employee's favor. This one was.
When I started at my current employer, on an Internet Hell Desk, I was assisting a new customer setting up a modem. Part of the setup includes walking through a walled garden that requires the customer agree to a "Terms of Service" This is as close to the exact wording as I can remember:
Me: "Ok, now just read the Terms of Service, scroll down, and click agree."
Her: "I'm a lawyer. No one reads these. I'll just agree."
Me: "Umm, you really should have read that first. <Company Redacted> now owns your soul."
Her: "I'm a red-head. I don't have one."
Much humor was had, manglers got involved, and there was some talk about possible misconduct. The fact that the CUSTOMER said it saved my job.
No. It's not. I used to smoke (switched to vaping) and cleaned the inside of my PC at least quarterly. This meant a full strip down, wiping down the board with 91% and qtips, cleaning all the fans and heatsinks, etc. A complete environment clean.
All this stemmed from a position at a company that had to replace the payroll computer at least yearly, because the elderly lady working on it chain smoked. Computers can die of smoke inhalation.
Yeah, I saw the same episode. What they missed was they were using new, undamaged CDs. If even the smallest crack appears at the center hole, the stress at over 48x will break the CD.
For a VERY short time, 90x drives were available (2001 or so) and these had such issues that fragments of disks would some out the side of the PC case.
To understand the issue here, you have to understand where the problem lies. It's not that he's called himself an engineer. It's that he's gone and proved the State is issuing tickets that it shouldn't be. Given the makeup of the State, and it's lackeys, it's no surprise that this occurred.
The fact that the suit is hand written actually explains where this came from.
Prisoners, often having nothing better to do, file suits all the time. It gets them out of their cells, even if only to go to court. And it increases the cost of the judicial system so that they get to "stick it to the man"
The sheer number of these suits floods the system. Unfortunately, every single one has to at least be heard because sometimes there's a diamond in the dross. Just search for "nutriloaf" <shudder>
One thing that keeps being missed is that the United States is not a Democracy. We are a constitutional "Representative Republic". In order to change this, would require a constitutional amendment, which just ain't gonna happen this way. Listening to some people, 4 major metropolises mean more than the other 85% (geographically) of the country because they're "more populous". Until (and unless) the voting rolls are cleaned up and some sort of verification of citizenship is put in place, the system will not change.
"As we have all seen that extradition is only one way - country X to the US NEVER US to country X, for some very strange reason."

United Cutlery makes a very nice "M48" hammer that I used to carry with me specifically for breaking glass or wood doors down. Management ONCE asked if it was necessary, and I just responded that I could bring the tomahawk (same line) instead. Never a question after that, but I was put on the Saftey committee responsible for fire drills, alarms, exit notices and such.
Which then gave me the excuse to bring in 10 stories worth of climbing rope (7th floor) and 10 rappelling harnesses, with enough 550 cord to attach to them and haul back up. Management was grateful I never got to use it.
Anyone who has any experience at any level in a call center has seen similar behavior. Internal, Outsourced, Off-Shored. Every single call center does something similar to this.
One reason is that the metrics are set based on profitability numbers. Either "take more calls" or in the case of a Service Level Agreement, balance the staff to the workload. This often means that centers will be understaffed for call volume, to try to balance cost vs performance.
Using the "Service Level Model" where XX% of calls must be answered in XX seconds, it almost requires this behavior for "fiscal responsability", at least if you believe the PHBs.
Ahem, thank you for making the argument.
British American Tobacco: Vype
Lorillard (Later acquired by RJ Reynolds) : Blu
Phillip Morris, makers of your "Marlboroughs": Altria
the fact is that "big tobacco" ARE the ones pushing the regulations. Because they have financials to be able to afford the testing. In the US, we're looking at $1M per product/strength. So the small places, like "Dr Crimney's" that I use, are looking at for just ONE flavor $1M per strength. that's 0, 3, 6, 12. $4 Million dollars for one product line.
further, the limits on "refill size" is a blatant attempt to limit the amount of liquid to roughly that of one pack of ciggs.
For the most part, the dose is set by the manufacturer. If you're making it yourself, then it's dependent on the amount of nic-juice you put in the mix. The juice comes at a set level, and there are many sources online to determine what you need to mix in what amounts.
Personally, I just buy juices that come in 0, 3, 6, 12mg strengths, and then dilute with "0" when necessary. ie: 50% 3mg and 50% 0mg will result in a 1.5mg liquid.
The majority of the juices I've seen have all had 0mg strengths available, and one reason is stated so that you can dilute the strength without diluting the flavors.
Your post indicates a complete ignorance of the US and it's basic legal organization.
The US is a collection of states, much like the EU is a collection of small countries. Would you want Brussels to be able to tell Wales to do something because France wants it?
Our founding document, the Constitution, explicitly relegates all authority not specifically assigned to the Federal government to the individual states. It's the 10th Amendment.
In this case, you have a judge who didn't understand the extent of the warrant he was signing. And that is laid on the Fibbies whobasked for the warrant. Due diligence would require them to explain that until they have the IPs of the suspects, they have no clue what their geographical location is.
The only way they could have pulled this off is if the actual darknet site was hosted on a server in that judge's jurisdiction.
Because in the US, you're innocent until proven guilty. Therefore, if they are unable to prove a likelihood of guilt with the evidence, then the extradition should not take place.
This is actually much more sinister. In the US, a suspect cannot be required to provide a password. In the UK, they can. They're using the UK to get the password to then use it as part of the US case.
Seeing as this is a government agency, the use of the word "recycled" leads me to believe that the hardware was sent to an EPA recycled to be either destroyed (the usual with fed drives) or maybe, possibly, refurbished and sold.
I worked for one of these recyclers for 3 years, and the standard we used with 3 letter agencies was to run a DOD wipe, then destroy the drives. (In one case, I got to plug it in, spin it up, and hit it with a hammer to pulverize the platter. In front of the "client" :) )
Bah. For both form and function I direct your attention to the HTC Mogul PPC-6800:
Reviewed in 2007, it predates the Apple patent by more than 5 years:
And that's just prior art based on devices that I've owned and can find info on. The rounded corners, the full sized screen. The only change was in the single button on the front, and the removal of the slide away keyboard.
I'll be happy to accommodate you if you prefer that I read that script in Bad Jersey, Bad Philly, or Bad Valley Girl.
Of course, if you know the magic phrase I'll stop pretending to be "Peggy" (yes, I even do the accent) and fix or escalate your issue.
That magic phrase is "Multiple boxes, multiple OSes, I've already hard reset and reconfigured the modem" and be able to convince me of that (as opposed to just saying to to try to bypass valid troubleshooting)
In defense of the ISP, you would not believe how many "network admins" i have calling me who don't know what TCP/IP, IPv4, or DNS Resolution are
