Re: Not 3D...
Ah 'feel' as in feel the heat on your face, that's some 4th wall stuff right there!

Re: throwing an open container; Aren't bars obliged to open canisters for you precisely because an open can makes a poor projectile (I imagine it's not as 'solid' since the liquid can now slosh about and spew out cancelling out the kinetic(?) energy you applied to it while hurtling towards your opponent)
If I had cases with them I'd mass re-open them as soon as. Not even re-open but reword it and send new with different wording to throw off any automation they have that will de-prioritise re-opened cases. Looks like they're hoping to clear all that and hope people forgot what cases they had with them to appear like they've improved their ratios.
DC were doing generator testing a few years ago, while the DC was running on them some engineer leaned on the unprotected emergency shutdown button I shit you not. I was afraid we'd have some seized up hard drives as no one wanted to buy new kit for some years. Afraid/Hoping, could've had some investment if there was catastrophic failure tbh.
VM/BT who have fibre or whatever for the area still means super throttled connections during peak (as many commentards have attested to) how will that be different for 5G where there will be so many more subscribers (as everyone has a phone) with the added bonus of some of them being on the move on buses between tall buildings etc with frequent basestation handovers. What I'm trying to say is those quoted speeds are meaningless today.
A lot of people on the tube arent locals and they're the more likely to read them being visitors and all, and also the more likely to do stuff that are not acceptable so it's not a terrible idea.
More on the subject my nose still remembers east Asian student colleagues in the lecture theater having their hot fish soup for lunch between lectures..
No, the FB one is a tracky one, Firefox's Facebook Container extension (developed by Mozilla, and reassuringly offered after a fresh install of FF) flags it and blocks it (if uBlock doesn't scrub it 1st that is, sorry Reg <3).
There are other containers too for amazon and LinkedIn (I was surprised how many bits of the internet go back to those two). But I digress.
Can't they trade it for Mexico, or both countries build some factories around either side of the border creating jobs for your southern compadres and cutting on transport costs in addition to bringing the countries closer together you live on the same piece of rock anyway!
(P.S. I totally stole this idea from the Montezuma Strip)
I notice 22.214.171.124 sometimes fails to resolve some really basic stuff for random lenghts of time, I wonder if their over-optimisation or whatever snazzy anycast they have in place is not as reliable as they think. I've found quad9 much better and that can already be used in Android for 'private dns' which seems to work, instead of being shown my mobile provider's landing page for content blocked I just get timed out connections - meaning that at least my provider is properly blocking network access to that content rather than just the domain names, which leads me to think what's stopping other content blockers to just work on network level like that. If they know and update what a domain points to and block traffic to those addresses you'd still wont be allowed to connect to the servers no matter how you resolved the domains to those same IPs.
HR here banned shorts at one point, we gave her (it was a one lady team at the time - dead nice person, don't get me wrong, just with bone to pick for shorts wearing techies for some reason) so much whinging in response one of the company founding directors started coming to work wearing shorts in support/protest. A few months later when she left the new HR people jokingly said the only requirements now is that you come to work wearing clothes - been on shorts and trainers since! (I never knew trainers can be so comfy!)
unlike say a stealth jet
Is it though, practically might be but in reality if you're fighting some inferior army with old tech that can't catch a stealth jet you got that advantage AND if you are (you probably wont won't be as that would mean open warfare with the russians or something then we're all screwed) it's just all just an arms race which I imagine is "good for business" so in a way it's a win-win (for someone other than tax payers or civilians..or anyone who rebells against the $govenrnment_in_power). What joyous world we live in!
Virtually no queues (but they have the sec checks closer to each gate rather than centralised like I think most UK airports)
They then have the spinny thing you stand in like a mupped that even detected I had an old train ticket in my jeans pocket in me so $diety knows what EM field they blast you with.
Not that any of this matters they watch you and can make the thing beep red if they want I know for a fact they did that in one airport cos I walked to the bog before security while I had no electronics or anything on my person that would trigger the scanner. (Or other cases where I've fiddled with my backpack in the concourse or anything that might look suspicious, possibly even being hungover which admittedly is most times I fly *cough*)
