No that's not how it works.
If it's someone with power/friends they will decide there is not much hope of a conviction, tell them dads waiting outside and off you go.
If it's someone they don't like... bang, off to the cells you go.
1. Make it so everyone is breaking the law* by breathing.
2. Use selective enforcement to deal with people you don't like.
*Make sure to use the law first on scum bags that no one will defend. Once the law is established you can use it on anyone you don't like as long as they are not "important".
You sure it's not ...
"Seeing such variation from decade to decade tells us that we need to observe Earth's carbon cycle for significantly longer periods in order to help us understand what is occurring, but in the meantime, please buy that new Land Rover to create jobs, and crank up the AC it's hot out there!"
The we need to study it more before we do something is the Oil company line, not the Al Gore line.

Wow, that's very clever Microsoft, now piss off.
Yes if you have a computer that runs Windows 7 it will most likely run Win8.
But if you want to sell computers, just being able to run Win 8 is not enough to get you the Windows 8 sticker. If you want the sticker then you have to follow the new rules for stuff like secure boot.
No, people who think iTunes is a bloated pile of crap.
I can download a free ebook from Baen directly to my tablet, then later copy it to any computer without the need to install any special software (for XP WMP11 needs to be installed to get the right drivers, but you don't need to use it to access the tablet, just explorer is all you need).
No I wouldn't.
It's up to version 3, sorry "the new ipad" now and I didn't buy one yet. I had no plans to buy one.
I find the iPad to be over priced, too big, too locked down with too much control freakery on the apps. Apple can stuff it. I do have an ipod 2g and I expect it will be the last ithing I buy. Even jailbroken it's still a pain getting stuff on or off the ipod.
Nexus 7 is not perfect but it's good enough, received mine last Friday.
The free media player I installed lets me connect to a share on my computer and play video files. I have not rooted my N7.
There are reports that you can use a USB OTG cable with a USB memory stick but I have not picked up a cable to test it yet.
No screen problems with my N7.
"Yes, a great idea, outsourcing all these services to the lowest bidder, who in turn will hire poorly paid, undertrained, unmotivated personnel to fill the positions."
Normally they fire everyone, then offer them a new job with less pay and no perks with the new company. The best staff move on to better employers. You are left with under performing, low paid, bitter senior staff and your poorly paid, undertrained, unmotivated new personnel at the bottom.
Little surprise if they decide to make their own perks.
It may not be a bad search engine, but it's not a good search engine. Google will almost always give you the result you need higher on the page.
But yes it really is a STUPID name. The only time I say "why don't you bing it" is when I'm asked a stupid question and I'm being sarcastic in response.
I had that happen but I was receiving 600 per minute and had to delete that email address. It was like a DDOS attack as my mail server was crawling. Even just bouncing them was slowing down the server.
Lucky it was just an address I created to receive some mailing lists I subscribe to so not a big deal to change.
But they just have to add more stuff to list on the box to sell updates. Even the extra value stuff is crap, most of the fonts and almost all the clip art is unusable (I think I used one of the arrows on a wet paint sign once).
When you find some website that was created in Word it's always good for a laugh.
Acrobat is another program where I don't want sound and video crap, I want a file I can email to someone or post on a web site, and another person can print, and the print will look like my copy no mater what software / OS he is using.
