I say it's a fake made to look old. The print looks too perfect even though the picture looks like it was taken with a cardboard camera.
If you search for images of letters written in the 1800s, you will quickly see a stark difference compared to what you have. None of them have what apepars to be a solid 1" margin.
I got pretty fed up with Google with the whole Google+/YouTube comments fiasco, so I decided to use DuckDuckGo. It respects my privacy much more, the interface isn't as heavy, and bangtags can be really useful.
From time to time, DDG won't be good enough. Then the only thing I've got to do is to write a bangtag in the search query, !yt (for youtube), !g (for going to Google) and so on. Hell, there's even an !xkcd tag. Look at the full list. I used to be skeptic, but it's definitely good.
This reminds me of the joke about the intern at Microsoft who came up with the gigabyte-saving idea of changing the company name to "Moft".
Seriously though, if this became a thing and people began using narrower typefaces to save a percentage of ink, you can bet your newly-saved bottom dollar that the ink manufacturers increase the price to "recoup lost revenue".
Plug for /r/SandersForPresident
He has integrity. He's always fought tooth-and-nail for us. Yes, actually us! The lower and middle classes. The workers, laborers, teachers, firefighters. That was the centerpiece of his campaign for Mayor of Burlington back in 1981, its been his campaign throughout his history as a Vermont senator, and it'll be the centerpiece of his Presidential campaign.
He's honest. Consistent. And is one of the very very few politicians who actually has our best interests at heart. Plus, he made a folk album. Win-win-win all around.

Doxxing is to reveal personal info on individuals; this is about DDOSing, which is flooding a server with more requests than it can handle.
Well I use it. And I love the Bang! suggest shortcuts as they really narrow stuff down. And it is easy to write your own too..
Beyond that you can even hack on DDG. Which is just cool.
Yes. I was just there last summer. That is, however, Cork Harbor. Odd naming there. This is from whence my great great grandmother fled the famine in 1849. Mom, two little kids, and an infant. The dad died in the famine before they left. Thought of them as I gazed across this beautiful scene. Very nice photo you have here.
EDIT: For the curious.
To double check this, I used DDG to make sure that none of our clearly anime-related interests are not infecting and heavily skewing search results.
In the end, huh. That's a weird thing.
To be perfectly fair, it's safe to assume that forced drama became a thing when majority of anime fans are not people well versed in literary terms. Afterall, people here also outright call certain writing tools objectively bad when that's not even remotely true.
Also, it seems there's a whole Tea-Rex universe out there. Internet, you scary sometimes.
You got it right. It's actually an oversight from the author. Google search result are heavily influenced by your 'web history' if you are logged on while searching. It's a good practice to make sure you're not logged into your Google account when searching. Here's Google's help page on Web History and how to disable it.
I really wish more people knew about DuckDuckGo, the no-tracking, no-filter-bubble search engine.

Can we please decriminalize drugs? Portugal decriminalized drugs with huge success. The U.S. drug war fueled the drug cartels in Mexico that has resulted in over 60 thousand killings in Mexico alone. All the while, our civil liberties are assaulted (invasion of privacy, monitoring of all your bank accounts, excuses for searching your person with 100 miles of any border) all because "you might be transporting or selling drugs".
It is a flask for the volumetric determination of fat in dairy products. A Gerber Tube, if my memory serves me right. My first job, 50 years ago, was in a dairy lab, but my memory could be leading me astray.
Edit: no, these are Gerber tubes. I still think that is volumetric fat, though.
I'm a huge fan, go there first, and support DDG but many things like unit conversions have gone to hell lately
There is also no consistent list of bangs you can d/l and grep and no easy way to learn all the triggers for the Goodie, Spice, Fathead, and Longtail features.
In short, there's a billion options and no way to RTFM. Frustrating.
Shameless plug: https://duckduckgo.com
DDG has lots of other goodies like !bang syntaxes and zero-click info.
Well, I use DuckDuckGo most of the time, it's pretty popular among people that got fed up with Google. Doesn't build a Filter Bubble for your searches, doesn't track or save them.
It doesn't fare as good as google if I search in my native language, but for stuff in english I can honestly tell it often works better. And if you don't find what you're looking for using it, you can just add "!g" to the search box and it will redirect your search too google. (There are more keywords like that, of course.)
Try it, maybe you'll like it. (Oh, and if you find the name too long here's a shorter link - dgg.gg )
duckduckgo is good for not only privacy but the customization and additional options too. Things such as bangs allow you to search other sites directly, even google if needed. As an example, I can open a new tab, type !amazon shoes and it will open amazon with my shoes query already searched.
The site also lets you customize most everything too. Default unit of measure, language, theme, font size etc.
Alright, let's apply the ol' Reddit swappa swappa:
>It seems to me like it's just common sense to take more precaution around white men. If white people find this offensive, then they need to address the issue of white men eating people, grinding the global economy to a halt and straight up murdering 77 people as a form of advertisement.
>If white people find this offensive, then they need to address the issue of the terrible shit they do to their fellow human beings, not everyone else's reaction to it.
>I find the rate at which whites eat motherfuckers, steal billions from millions of people and murder innocent people to be much more offensive than people being afraid of white men of all ages.
The difference is a search engine is a tool and all about immediate results. That's why Duckduckgo implemented all those bangs like !g, !b or !yt since the beginning.
Trained martial artist but it's been over a decade since I practiced and haven't actually had to use it.
My first tip is, don't fight. Kill.
If you don't think you're in the right killing somebody, you probably don't need to be fighting. You need to either go full Ender Wiggin on their ass, or you need to walk/run away. There is no middle ground, both legally and ethically.
With that out of the way, there's 3 main targets: the head, the chest, and the groin/legs. Generally you can only protect two at any given moment. Attack the one that's least protected.
HOWEVER you can't go for the obvious spots. Take a detour.
If you go for the head, try to punch them in the throat. People always assume you want to punch them in the head, and while they might push at your arm or something, it's very easy to at least wind someone enough to land some followups, and in the worst case scenario, you hit them so hard their windpipe collapses and they lie down and suffocate.
If their face is protected, go for the solar plexus (Duck it) or kidneys. You can't kill them quickly this way but you can cause such pain they lower their guard.
The third option is to kick the side of the knee. They'll think you're going for the balls and actually angle your target towards you. Look at how a knee bends. You want it to bend left to right... kick it right in the side. They will fall down, and if they still have control of a weapon you can step on their hand, put a boot on their neck, or just kick them in the head.
It's a common technique in animation to draw a frame that has fast movement in it with weird body proportions. With a solid, properly proportioned body on each frame leading in and out your eye blurs them together in a more satisfying way, and it's less "jittery" and robotic than if each frame was drawn perfectly. Basically, it creates a sense of organic movement. Disney use it all the time.
EDIT: They are called "smear frames". A quick image search will show you a whole heap of them, used in everything from quick and dirty to classic cartoons and animation.
Forget when (that's easy, we need to start yesterday!), let's ask "how".
I say the first thing that must be done is to rethink our concept of being the world's policeman (that's the UN's job after all). In short, we must radically slash the Pentagon's budget and to start pulling out troops from overseas bases.
The scope of the task is gigantic. We have decades of propaganda and militaristic indoctrination to overcome. That won't be easy.
But until we address US militarism, we'll never be able to touch the shadow (or "secret") government.
Since they didn't have any modern refrigeration back then, and they stored wine in amphora, I'm inclined to believe that the percentage must have been higher than a few percentage-points by volume, primarily through the fermentation continuing even after the wine was "bottled". It's also unlikely that they would purposely keep the alcohol content was low, considering a higher alcohol content would lead to a drink that can be preserved for a longer time.

Obviously take anything anyone says on the internet with a grain of salt, but it's a start at least. To be honest it's definitely not as good as google, but for 75% of my searches (usually just getting to the official site of whatever I'm looking for without typing in a specific URL) it's good enough. For actual research I still usually use google at some point, but this works for a good chunk of my needs.
Which reminds me, I need to finally start using a VPN...
I've been using DuckDuckGo for the past few weeks. I don't like it. The only thing I like about it is the fact that I can use !wiki to go directly to a Wikipedia page, rather than googling and just clicking on the first result.
It does do a better job of presenting what I want when it knows what that is. For example, a Wikipedia page is normally presented where Google's sponsored links would be. Or cppreference.com (it seems to know not to give cplusplus.com special status which is nice: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=std+vector). It also presents me with a menu of pictures of the finished product if I search for a recipe: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=fried+rice+recipe.
Unfortunately, its actual search algorithm isn't as good as Google's by a mile, and there's no way people are going to use DuckDuckGo as it is noticeably worse. I only haven't changed my browser's search function back to Google because I can just !g into DuckDuckGo and use a Google search, and I can still use !wiki to save a few seconds of my time. But really, the amount of time I spend adding in a !g after searching (and DuckDuckGo is slower than Google) because I originally forgot to and DuckDuckGo didn't find what I wanted, probably means a net loss in time.
It has, it just had a heart attack and died. Repeatedly. Costing charity hospitals tens of thousands of dollars because it didn't have insurance.

>When people say they don't trust GMOs they usually mean they don't trust Monsanto - a wise move.
It's not just Monsanto, or just the GMO's. It's that the companies can submit their own reports and the FDA blindly accepts them.
Atrazine and Tyrone Haze - This scientist was employed by Syngenta to study the herbicide Atrazine. He found that the herbicide changed the sex of frogs by changing testosterone into estrogen. Syngenta put pressure on him to modify or censor his results but he refused. He also reports that the representatives from Syngenta threatened his family for publishing his work.
It's also not only about a lack of trust, but also a moral and justice issue. These GMO's are patented by the companies that create the GMO's and companies that create non-GMO seeds have a hard time keeping these seeds from cross contaminating their crops. This is a doubly troubling issue for organic producers because now the GMO makers threaten legal action as well as the inherent contamination problems. This has the makings of a seed monopoly where a handful of companies control the nations food supply.
There are other issues with regards to Roundup ready products, because farmers can apply more of this herbicide to their products. Glyphosate (the main active ingredient of Roundup) has been listed as a probable human carcinogen. Also, Monsanto has been accused of hiding toxicity reports on Glyphosate.
So, in short, yes, the GMO's themselves MAY be safe (there's not a lot of published research that is yet available). However, the actions of these GMO makers, the implications of a seed monopoly, and the addition of extra chemicals to the chemically resistant GMO's, make the existing "science" very questionable. These issues destroy trust in ALL GMO makers as well as the FDA.
It's not 100% perfect but for the most part it does a pretty good job. And it's getting better all the time.
Also, shameless plug for DuckDuckGo if anyone reading this hasn't tried it yet. I still use google most of the time during work since that's pretty much the standard, but at home anonymous searching really does feel great once you get used to duckduckgo's vibe.

Shameless plug for my favourite search engine: Duckduckgo!
Keyboard navigation, no tracking, no "bubble", customizable colourscheme and UI, !bangs (awesome little keywords that let you search hundreds of sites from the search/address bar directly), super quick results, and a cute mascot to boot!
i ditched Google two years ago, and haven't looked back. The only thing I'd like them to implement is "filter by date", but it seems that's a difficult thing to get going. If you absolutely can't sever the tie to google, just use the !bangs "!g" (search google), "!m" (search google maps), and "!i" (searh google images) along with your query, but honestly, when you get used to DDG, Google is just painful in comparison.
I'm not paid to write this, just a happy user! Give it a Go!
I've submitted the search page to DuckDuckGo as a !bang category. If they accept it, !prfc http will automatically redirect to http://pretty-rfc.herokuapp.com/search?q=http. Fingers crossed!
Oh, there will be another pollinator to replace the bees.
It's called hand pollination, and they are already having to do it in certain places in China.

> Entrepenurs: We know that Entrepenurs are the life blood of Capitalism. Without low entry barriers you cannot have competition, and without competition you cannot have efficiency. Therefore, any system that encourages and makes easier Entrepenurs is a successful one.
Everyone always forgets how conflicted capitalism truly is on the issue of competition. On paper every capitalist touts the virtue of competition, but in practice every businessman abhors competition, views it as a destructive force, and tries to kill it by ANY means necessary, legal and illegal and everything in between (gray areas).
Capitalism is much more about the accumulation and control of capital than it is about competition. Competition requires equal access to capital. And capitalism detests the notion of equal access to capital.
So I think while the capitalist ideology often pays lip service to competition, in practice the actual participating living and breathing capitalists see competition as a dark and evil force that is to be avoided at all costs.
Just think about what Warren Buffett means by "deep moats" in the business sense. Seriously. Deep moat. Look it up.
I have Genius SP-HF2020 speakers. They're a decent desktop set, good sound, good build, with an infrared remote, and almost all the remote's functions are available on the speakers themselves.
The motherloving ON-OFF button. If you lose the remote, you can still use the speakers, except you can't turn them on. Which, you know, isn't very good.
If you unplug them and plug them back on, they are in standby and require the remote to work.
No I don't. When people say they want personalized results, they generally mean localized results (like local weather and restaurants), which we can do without tracking people. We've seen no compelling evidence that further personalization really helps, and some decent evidence that it hurts. That said, we do have a region setting that works anonymously that boosts results from a particular region, and you could theoretically extend that concept in a still anonymous way to categories (like I'm a programmer). That hasn't been a priority, however, because we just haven't seen the need.

'Dyed in the wool' white supremacy is alive and well in the NW (and all over the west &amp; the U.S., for that matter).

This issue should be discussed clearly and often.

Regardless, how common a crime is should not have any bearing on the necessity for impartial justice.
The purpose, at least in the case of DuckDuckGo is actually to preserve your privacy; by routing the link through another page, the page you end up on doesn't know what your original search was. Assuming you can trust the middle man site, this situation is really better.
Of course, Facebook doesn't care about privacy...
Let me propose a compromise: DuckDuckGoog.
It uses (anonymized) Google as a default, but you still get all the Bangs. It has changed my life.
So its not a separate search engine, but it anonymizes Google and adds Bangs. Best of both worlds IMO.
!bangs are always the first thing to come to mind. The ability to search any website right from DDG (and of course, your web browser if DDG is your default) is way too valuable. It's the reason I switched to DDG.
DuckDuckGo has amazing instant answers, many of which created by the community (http://Duck.co). Wanna know who Aphrodite is? DDG it. What exactly is a lager? DDG it.
Those are the two big non-privacy related things (bangs are seriously great!), but if you want to know more about what DDG can do, I'd recommend taking the tour!
> Would separating the NSA, and other agencies like that, from the government be a good solution to all of this?
Privatizing them?! Hell no. What has privatizing prisons or welfare fraud investigating done for us?
Bill Moyers documented the "secret government" that started in the Reagan era. Reagan used "the Enterprise" to evade the US law. Those commercial entities, like Blackwater today, are out of control and are unaccountable to anyone.
The solution to our out of control gov't and its spying and wars is two-fold: Enact rock solid, comprehensive and highly punitive privacy laws, and slash the budgets of both the Pentagon and the security/intelligence agencies.
Then the trick will be to get our corrupt gov't to actually enforce the law.
But until we end our government's love of war and address the rampant militarism in our culture, any "reform" will just be whitewashing that wears off in a short time. If you don't believe that, just revisit the same types of crimes that Nixon committed with the CIA, FBI and US Army intelligence, or Reagan's crimes of the Iran-Contra era.
How many times do we have to allow this to happen before we wake up and get a clue?
I've often wondered why more people on the left do not support Liberation Theology in its various forms.
There is, of course, the issue of idealism and materialism, and the issue of religion demanding that obedience to God or the Bible be primary.
But in practical terms, socialism and religion do not have to be the enemies that capitalists paint them as. That enemy concept may not apply to various church hierarchies, but to the lay person they're very, very compatible and should be allies.
"Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people." -- Karl Marx
Being skeptical about privacy is important, we work hard to be the search engine you can trust and provide a great search experience without sacrificing your privacy.
It was personally written and maintained by our founder directly, and discusses candidly the approach we take to protecting our users. It even covers some more in-depth concepts like preventing search leakage, and why simply 'anonymizing data' is not nearly as safe as simply not storing data.
We make sure not to collect or store anything personally identifiable such as an IP address, user agent string etc.
If you choose to use settings (such as changing the theme or font size) you can choose to store these as non-personally identifiable cookies, but we realize some people may not like that so we also have the option to anonymously save your settings to the cloud by choosing a unique passphrase, or even loading all settings into the URL, for example:
The above URL sets the font size to the largest setting, this way you can retain settings without cookies and without any personally identifiable information.
On the settings page there is also a bookmarklet tool to help you generate those URLs you can bookmark, and it will show you exactly the text that would be saved if you used a cookie so you could compare it easily.
We strive to always put our users first, so if you have any questions or concerns feel free to reach out. We also love to hear user feedback on search results and features, as we're constantly improving based on your needs - so feel free to submit feedback via Reddit Mail, on our sub (/r/duckduckgo) or at our forum!

Let say you are really interested in Italian food and you do a lot of Google searches on the subject Google will remember you as someone who likes Italian food. Eventually, if you search for "Restaurants" it might assume you would prefer to receive addresses for pasta and pizza places instead of the closest burger joint. This has been a part of Google for a very long time.
What changes in March is that Google will be using this same method of getting to know you throughout all of its sites (which includes, but isn't limited to, GMail, Google, Maps, Youtube, Google+) and start collecting and using information about you on all of those services. The idea behind it is that if you send or receive a lot of mail about pizza on GMail, this could eventually affect what videos show up when you search for "Food" on Youtube. In a way it's nothing new, it's just bigger than before.
And about people "not really stopping to use Google" I should mention that a lot of people have been using DuckDuckGo as an alternative. The people behind it are redditors as well and you can find out more info on [/r/duckduckgo](/r/duckduckgo).

> From my experience, the majority of people simply don't care about such things
Correct, but the number of people with browsers is so mind-bogglingly huge that even niche products can have a massive absolute volume despite being a tiny percentage.
They are now around 1.5 million direct queries per day, PLUS another 12 million queries via the API.
How ridiculously lucrative is this market?
Google pays Mozilla $300 million a year just to be the default search option.
That's $300 million for a 25% market share (at the time; now at ~19%, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usage_share_of_web_browsers).
Assuming linear scaling, if you can make a browser and get 1% adoption, that's worth $12 million/year with last year's traffic numbers, just for the search box rights alone.
Even with 0.1%, most people would be pretty happy with $1.2 million a year.
DDG didn't hire its first employee until a year ago, and had revenue of $115,000 for 2011.
Their traffic for 2012 is 5-6x. I wouldn't be too displeased with half a million to three-quarters of a million in revenue, personally.
Those are rounding errors to the Internet titans but not too shabby for a small business.
DuckDuckGo gives more precise results with their IA. It even has some idea of what a balanced card is !
Aside from all the things /u/Mrs_PervyPants has mentioned, there's one thing being overlooked here:

It is technically possible. Colour e-ink exits. Here's a device using it. Here's some more links.
Whether Amazon want to use it is another thing. They may simply want to stick with very good black & white displays with a great battery life and useful features (like the paperwhite's front light). I don't know the tech behind colour e-ink, it may be more power intensive.
It probably wouldn't be used in the Kindle Fire either, as e-ink isn't responsive enough (it takes a while to refresh, as you've probably seen, and you'd want at least 24 (average movie framerate) refreshes per second for it to be viable in a multimedia device).
Amazon seem to want to get a good price too - their goal is to sell books, not as much for selling kindles, evidenced by the fact you can read on almost anything with a screen - and colour e-ink is probably expensive.
Maybe in the future, once the technogy matures.
Which is exactly what happened to at least 80% of the superfund sites the US has.

I have been using it for some months now. I have tried Ixquick as a non-tracking engine before, but it was too annoying in the end. The Duck is a totally different beast. It is a bit slower than Google, and the results are less comprehensive, but other than that, it is better in every regard.
The lack of location based filters was my original motivation to try it. With the Wikipedia definitions, half of the time the search results already contain whatever I was looking for. Once you get used to the !bang syntax, it is ridiculously awesome.
I am still a bit worried, that this is a commercial company, and I wonder what they will do to extract money from this operation. Until I hear anything tangible, they will have my benefit of doubt, so here, blatant advertising:
Google is all up in my shit because I use a lot of their services for convenience (Calendar, Contacts, Maps, Gmail (as a secondary mail account to my primary vanilla SMTP email hosted with my shared web server), and more because I now carry an Android phone)... but I use <strong>DuckDuckGo</strong> for search because 1) they don't track their users, 2) I prefer the cleaner look of their results pages, and 3) the results aren't narrowed with a filter bubble that are personalized for my assumed preferences.

This was incredibly difficult to read. So much so that I am not entirely sure what I type here even applies to what you were saying. I am also not entirely sure you understand what this topic is about.
Duck Duck Go is a web search that advertises making searches anonymous (doesn't track what you search). That is what the person is asking about. What you are talking about is ENTIRELY different. Of course the people who allow access to the internet can tell what you are searching, especially if its a corporate computer - what I mean by that is you should assume they have put in the necessary technology to determine what you have searched. Not only that, its very easy to determine just from website logging what you have looked into.
For example if I link you the address of the google search you will get the same search as me. Not only that but there are much more sophisticated ways of doing it (I don't work in IT so ask them how).
Honestly though I am not entirely sure I addressed what you were saying in your post because it was barely coherent.
Edit: After looking at this person's history they are either really young, really dumb, or a troll.

The Americans - Russia infiltrates America (CIA advisor involved with that in mind: Great series, love it, watch it)
American Sniper - The war in Iraq is about heroism. Does it make sense now?
From the top of my mind, further suggestions?
Duckduckgo s'améliore de jours en jours. Au début je l'utilisais partiellement pour des recherche de document, mais maintenant je l'utilise tout le temps et je regrette pas google.
Of course. There is an entire "small cell" and also a "natural" beekeeping movement.
The natural size of honeybees varies depending on latitude. In general, the further north you go the smaller the size of the honeybee is. (The tropics have some non-honeybee bee species that we would think of as huge.)
The difference in the size of the honeycomb seems small. A 4.8 or 4.9mm diameter honeycomb is natural for US latitudes. But in the 1920s/30s, back when beekeeping first started to become commercialized, honeycomb size was increased to about 5.3mm. Though that ~.4mm difference seems small to us, when extrapolated 3D it creates a honeybee about 50% larger. That large size is now the norm. If you buy bees in the US, they'll be that large size. (And of course the US impacts other countries too.)
The commercial beekeeping industry, like all of US agriculture, only responds to science and especially to money. While there are many anecdotal reports of small cell beekeeping resulting in fewer problems, it doesn't eliminate all problems and there are few hard, scientific studies that testify to its effectiveness. This is real biological science and it is interwoven with many factors.
While the small cell and natural beekeeping movements are increasing in size, they're having little impact on commercial beekeeping and beekeeping as a whole. Unless something dramatic happens, at the current rate of change it'll take decades to fully change, if it ever happens.
Feel free to draw your own analogies to organic produce or other common sense movements which run up against hard corporate/commercial interests.
You sure he didn't mean dietary fiber?
Given how full of shit AT&T is, i would imagine it's more likely.
Betteridge's Law of Headlines says that the answer is "no."
Given that she was stupid enough to give up an astoundingly good plea deal and go to trial after almost three years of coverage regarding this incident, my bet is that "no" holds true as the answer.
Apparently there are literally hundreds of these. The only ones i use are
Wow! The amount of misinformation and outright untruths in this thread is both astonishing and shameful. Every person who has commented in this thread has access to the Internet. I would encourage anybody who has interest in improving their knowledge on the subject to look it up.
There is also a fantastic community over at /r/diabetes if you don't want to leave this site.
I figured it out It's a dog training tool, you associate the reward food with the clicker, and the click of the clicker with the good action.
The best benefit seems to be the accuracy of the click, to associate positive reinforcement with the behavior -- it's much quicker to click a button than to say good dog, or actually provide the treat.
There are many other sites with this report and petitions for Obama to pardon him. Good luck getting Obama to pardon anyone who defends himself and co-workers with a gun. Unfortunately private guns on government property is forbidden.
It isn't strictly Stack Overflow. They also pull snippets from Github (and likely other places): https://duckduckgo.com/?q=hello+world+in+python&ia=about
Assuming any single Pokémon can breed with any other Pokémon (so excluding only legendaries like you say but including stuff like Pidgey/Cryogonal or Chansey/Nidorina), it's just a handshake problem. 669 * 668 = 446,892 different variations.
But if you do it egg group by egg group....hold on, I wanna do this now. BRB.
edit1: so for the Monster egg group, you have 72 species that can be both male and female, so that's just 72 * 71, then there are three male-exclusives, so + 72 * 3, and three female exclusives, so + 72 * 3 = 5,544 Monster-group combos.
edit2: there should be 71,111 valid ways to breed two Pokémon such that you get an egg. If you want to include Ditto, that's an extra 668, maybe plus a Phione. So that's that.
(If someone wants to check the equation, here's the string of numbers I used--it should go through the egg groups in index order)

Chicago police response times
How about an experiment. Create a bill that would postpone current gun restrictions in Chicago for 3 years, give free firearms training, and a gun buyback program when the experiment ends. Record crime and murder rates for this year and the next 3 years.

> Eventually, they'll get around to going door to door. Similar to what they're doing in CA right now with the APPS program. First, they'll politely knock and as you to hand them over.
And after that, they'll confiscate by force. It's been done before, too.
It's a great way to clean out slow-moving/clogged sink drains.
Not only is it much cheaper than Draino or commercial chemical products, it's fun as hell to pour the vinegar onto the baking soda in the sink!

Maybe add Archwiki to your search providers and use that? Alternatively, DuckDuckGo lets you use flags to choose a search provider. So if you wanted to search systemd on ArchWiki, you would type
!archwiki can be abbreviated to !aw
If you wanted to search for linux graphic drivers on google, you could use
!google linux graphics drivers
!google can be abbreviated to !g
There's a whole list of flags at https://duckduckgo.com/bang
I kid you not, once upon a time in the mid 80s in the town of Camden, SC, I ended up taking a turn and found myself driving in the middle of a parade. I had Budweiser Clydesdales behind me and a hot air balloon gondola on a flat bed truck in front of me. I didn't know what the hell was going on for a few seconds. I was full of WTF and then suddenly realized what was going on and that this was the annual balloon festival parade.
I took solace in the fact that my '77 Buick LeSabre, with the trunk lid open displaying the rented roto-tiller I'd just picked up, was a reasonable "hit" with the kids from a special needs school. I enjoyed their smiles and waived back.
Then I took a quick right turn at the next corner and headed home.
It's basically a war on cash. Both banks and the government don't want you to deal with "large" sum's of cash. This is being done because the banks are in trouble again, and the only way to bail them out will be to use a "bail in" where depositors funds are siezed to pay for a bank bailout. It's also being done as a measure to control people, because bank funds are much easier to sieze if you are doing something they don't like. Just look at operation choke point to get a feel for what the control freaks want to do. If people run a cash business then such actions cannot take place. So therefore, there's a war on cash.
There's ALWYS some LC scandal going on! Don't you know how shady their CEO is? Hitler should have never started a business! LOL HERE HAVE A LIST OF DUPES BECAUSE I KNOW YOU'RE TOO STUPID TO FIND THEM ON YOUR OWN. <333
The Tarahumara Indians of Mexico, renowned for their barefoot-style, long-distance running, drink a corn beer very high in calories, but very low in alcohol, called "tesquino" to fuel their marathons.
Duck duck go also has some advantages like bangs. Totally look into them to find out more search !bang on duck duck go or go to https://duckduckgo.com/bang.html they basically allow you to quickly search other places comes in useful a lot
On slowness, we have gotten a lot faster over the past year, but it depends where you are located. We're starting to get servers across the world now, so in the next year I hope to generally have that under control.
On results, those have gotten a lot better as well. We'd always appreciate you sending in specific examples as that is the fastest way we improve those types of queries.
I'm going to be brief since I don't have much time and I admittedly don't know heaps about these, but I can tell you what I do know and what I can get from a quick look up on Google/DuckDuckGo.
Universal grammar doesn't rest merely on linguistic universals, and besides that, the whole idea of linguistic universals is not as the article describes them. LUs actually have more to do with stuff like "if language is SOV, then this tends to happen..." and "if a language has trial grammatical number, it also has dual grammatical number". The critical period is also something well documented and it is debated whether this works against UG or not. But universal grammar is based upon other evidence, such as the uniformity of pidgin and creole languages (languages that form in the absence of any already existing language medium a community has), and recursion, alongside other stuff which you can look up. Piraha having no recursion has been criticised, and there are various papers by people apart from Everett who have gone and taken a look at Piraha. A good paper that appeared recently in the /r/badlinguistics comments was this, although admittedly I haven't read through it all. Another paper I've found critiques the study on starlings and recursion.
Recursion is hence not the only piece of evidence, but it is the minimum evidence for UG. As far as linguistics is concerned, there's been no conclusive evidence to say that UG is not a thing. That's been the conclusion of linguists so far.
That said, what I've just given is minimal and there's more out there on the net. Also, could others corroborate what I've said?
Since I pay for Spotify's service I expect to be able to access songs without providing marketing data. I am not comfortable sharing my contacts, photos, etc, for marketing purposes and will absolutely dump Spotify over their new TOS.
No one is happy about Google's data collection policy but at least the service is free and there are alternatives like duckduckgo https://duckduckgo.com/
Edit: They Responded
"If you choose not to accept the new terms and conditions, you won't be able to log into the app and use your Spotify account any further. However, your Premium subscription will remain active unless you cancel it on our website."
Soo.. We don't care and we're going to bill you anyway
Any suggestions for other music services?
~~Does the GoPro have a looping record mode like dash-cams have?~~
~~I've considered getting one but I'd never have the foresight to hit "record".~~
Nevermind, one search for 'gopro loop recording' later and I'm watching a video of a guy setting that shit up. Goodbye, money!
might be adblock related. I need to do some tests.
