Re: Pai's FCC
In that case we have the problem of somebody meddling with the rules who doesn't even play, similar to the official position of the Roman Catholic Church upon sex and anti-conceptics, meaning disqualified.

"Pai will not do anything that might restrict cell carriers from making every dime of profit they can, no matter the cost to people or society at large."
So put a bounty on Pai's head and let the bounty hunters do their job. I think he will see the light pretty soon (though it might be the fiery red light of hell's fires).
I'd say they guessed wrong and it will cost them even more money. A full re-certification will be required now and EASA and CAAC (to name just two) aren't going to rubber stamp the FAA certificate this time, but will require re-certification independent from FAA. If Boeing is luckier than it deserves, EASA and CAAC will agree to a combined certification, but will still have to be without FAA.
"In the end, unless you speak fluent C++ (with a security specialisation to boot), you're still trusting "someone else" to deliver secure and reliable code. Or you're still trusting "someone else" to review the code for you in a timely manner."
Even if that is the case, you still have to trust the compiler (and the compiler's compiler).
I can understand your need and I don't mind people studying things like this. However, I do mind people stumbling upon it without being prepared for it. I also do mind people applauding this kind of atrocity. And I strongly object to life-streaming atrocities, at least to the general public. If it helps law enforcement services, they can watch it life (and real time) while on duty.
"People" (note I use that term very loosely in this case) that stoop to this level should be covered exactly twice:
Make that thrice:
Finally (after dying in prison) the body should be covered with earth in an unmarked grave at an undisclosed location.
"They've overplayed the "national security" card with so many countries so far though that nobody except those who desperately want to just believe it's true take them seriously about it any more."
Even worse, the things the Chinese are accused of (backdoors) have been found in American stuff, so whatever else is going on, the Americans already have a couple of strikes against themselves (and a load of hypocrisy).
"Seems that once the plane is lined up and ready to roll an autopilot could handle the take off and climb."
Given modern navigation (like in cars), it shouldn't be too difficult to have the autopilot also handle taxiing and lining up. That would certainly avoid problems with using incorrect connections from the taxiway to the runway, taxiing to the wrong (blocked) runway and taking of from taxiways.
"everything else is different and pilots training
is should be different as well."
Small correction as the pilot training isn't different while it should be. Unfortunately, the decision was made to keep the same type rating (saves money in retraining) and hide the differences with a hidden and undocumented modification (MCAS).
"Do I see ice crystals forming in Hell?"
No, you don't as those have been there for the last 1,000 years at least. Hell has always been a cold place, the old Norse mythology is correct in that regard. The idea of hell as a hot place comes from some ancient desert dwellers, who lacked the imagination that cold could be unpleasant.
The real difference between native and non-native speakers isn't in the vocabulary or spelling, but in specific parts of grammar, especially things like "their", "there" and "they're". And for some strange reason, non-native speakers are usually better at those while native speakers are usually better with "its"/"it's".
It would make a difference with more parties, just make sure no one single party can get a working majority but always will need at least one other party to get that majority. That way those parties get used to working together, because if they don't, they are on the way out.
Last month, the good citizens of Barnes, one of the most affluent areas of London, succeeded in scuppering an erection by O2, which was trying to replace a 12m mast with one that was 15m tall.
"The mast is higher than the permitted height of 15 metres, we measured the new mast on the truck and it is 15.5 metres, it is bright silver. The original application was for a wood coloured mast to blend in with the surrounding trees and it is effectively doubling the capacity," one concerned resident told the Sutton and Croydon Guardian.
Half a metre of the pole goes underground, something the objectors had failed to notice. But no matter: the lorry and its load were sent packing. Barnes could breath again.
I sure hope they finished deconstruction and removal of the 12m mast before driving off with the replacement mast.
"There was a fictional story once of a man who was left £1m which he had to spend on losses in a fixed time. Failure to lose it all meant he would not inherit the family's vast fortune. He found it very difficult to spend - as other people kept refusing payment or they ensured bad business decisions were converted to successes."
