  I think you're making this way too complicated.    We pretend that these national elections are actually contests, but they're usually not.    In recent times, there is such a distinction between the Democratic and Republican party platforms, especially as Republicans have moved to the right and pushed out the centrists from the party, that most people will vote along party lines almost no matter who is running.     And based upon this and the changing demographics of...
    Wrong!  Show me the law that says that zombies can't vote if they're citizens.   Where in the constitution does it deny zombies the right to vote?
Those parking structures are 75' tall.   Why do I think they're purposely that tall to block a view of the campus from the highway?   I guess the choice is which is the lesser evil:   acres of flat ground-level parking or tall parking structures?   Also, I wonder how the planning board is going to react (although they've probably known this for some time) to the fact that Apple is taking away Pruneridge Avenue from the campus.       I'm certainly no traffic expert, but I...
  No, they're going to erect the building in 90 days, but it's made from pre-fab panels.   So the real question is how long does it take to manufacture the panels and ship them to site?    If that takes a  year or more, then there's not much difference as compared with traditional construction. 
  I disagree when it comes to software upgrades.   There's no reason why these can't be bullet proof.   There's no reason I should have to bring any device to Apple because they don't have enough QC to supply a decent software upgrade.   Apple used to be just about perfect at this.   There's been plenty of such problems recently.
  While I agree with many of your comments, I think the biggest factor is that most people do not vote on the actual facts.   The average person votes on emotion and how they relate to a candidate.    I've seen research that claims that 50% of Americans cannot name the Vice-President and 70% can't name the Speaker of the House.    Relatively few read a newspaper.    Supposedly, a majority of Americans still believe that Obama was born in Kenya and that Iraq had weapons of...
You're probably right, because the 5% increase in the capital gains tax proposed for 2013 has been more than offset by the big drop in the stock price.    If this was all about the tax increase, then the stock shouldn't have dropped more than that 5%.     Investors are panicking and screwing themselves in the process.   I actually bought a few more shares before the latest drop, so I have gotten screwed a bit, but I'm not worried because I think it will all come back as...
I dunno.  Sounds more like a TV movie than a full-fledged film that's supposed to be a bio.   And only 90 minutes?   
I'm confused. I use the Messages application on my iPhone and I do get charged for each of those messages by AT&T. It's not part of my data plan. What am I missing? Is my configuration wrong?
If you want an iPhone5, place an online order for store pickup.   Then check at 10pm (I don't know whether it's 10pm in each time zone or 10pm EST) to see which stores will have one.   Keep refreshing because they don't always update at exactly 10pm.   I was advised to do this by an Apple store employee.   I finally remembered to do it last Wednesday night and phones were available in every single NYC region store after I kept checking.  I think it updated at about...
