Why is "teamwork" viewed as the solution to everything?
Seriously... what is the point of having two or more people doing a task when one would suffice?
All that happens when you have people all working on the same thing is they either duplicate the work, step on each other's toes and get nothing done.
This type of teamwork only benefits the 'deadwood' on the team, as other posters have mentioned.
Overzealous legal industry
This is the product of an overzealous legal *industry*... and I call it an industry because that's what it is.
And this industry is out to ensure a future supply of business.
And one good way to do that is it to make it really easy to be a "criminal" and by defining a "criminal" as merely possessing a picture that they didn't even take.
And people have been prosecuted for simply taking pictures of their own kids while playing in the bathtub with no sexual connotation to it.
But the legal industry *wants* to take benign things and make them 'criminal'... and that's a fact.
This is wrong.
There needs to be some serious push-back on this.
Given the state of Sexual Assault laws in the US and Canada and some other places, it's a really BAD idea to get sexual with a girl that's drunk as she can later claim that you got her drunk to take advantage of her... and because she was drunk, she "didn't have the mental capacity to give consent"... and then you are at risk for getting charged AND convicted for sexual assault and all the social stigma that goes with that.
It's better and legally safer to focus on girls that aren't drunk.
Bogus and cynical
All that means is that people who want to sell sex will just advertise somewhere else and nothing much will change.
Just more unrealistic and unenforceable government policy...
The next step is poo...
I figure the next thing to tackle is the Food/Poo problem.
They'll either figure out how to use the Poo as fuel like Top Gear did... OR... they'll figure out how to convert the Poo into Chocolate Bars...
Their "core" business?
So if they sell off the Unix division... they can focus on their core business of... being a Patent Troll?
Sounds like Fud to me
Sounds like FUD to me... Fud so that they can justify having agents playing in... err... I mean "investigating" these multi-player environments all day.
He might be an idiot, but...
He might be an idiot for not reading the fine print, but one of the issues in Canada is the not-so-competitive mobile phone service market.... and price gouging on things like overage rates.
All this guy needs to do is take his bill to the CRTC (Canadian Radio and Telecommunications Commission) and complain about PRICE GOUGING and there will be a lot of high level people at Bell Mobility that will have a very bad time after that... as they try to fight new regulations... like maybe a maximum amount allowed to be billed, irrelevant of use. Or maybe a cap on overage rates. Mobile phone companies make a killing on this in Canada. The CRTC could easily end this party.
As it stands, the CRTC has excluded current mobile carriers from bidding on new bandwidth spectrum for mobile carrier use so that new companies can enter the Canadian market because of price gouging.
