My father in law was a devout (5-7 times a week going to church, opus dei, etc) and he thought the song was hilarious and loved Tom Lehrer. One of my first dates with my wife was to a Tom Lehrer musical, so maybe it was just part of the family genes.
Poisoning Pigeons in the Park has always been one of my favorites, but I think it would be easier to list the songs I don't like by Tom Lehrer; the other list is too long.
The certificate is fine. If the site using the certificate used OpenSSL (the software with the "bug") THEN the site isn't secure. But the only way to re-secure the site is update the SSL software and revoke the old certificate then get a new one.
It's called plea deal to avoid bankrupting oneself to defend against an inappropriate charge. Jury nullification only works if the case gets to a jury, and even then you are betting on having a jury that is smarter than the one which labeled a white guy who shot and killed an unarmed black youth as guilty of attempted murder.
Prince, formerly known as an unpronounceable symbol, I believe was under a contract with Warner Brothers such that he could not use "Prince" for a number of years (or was it albums?) unless it was with Warner Brothers. Since he was having "artistic differences" with them he was in the position of not being able to go elsewhere under the name "Prince". He started using "Prince" again in 2000.
I wonder if any of the 22 people formerly known as "defendant" have recourse to punishing Prince for the suits.
It appears to me the only reasonable action is to launch a Kickstarter campaign to purchase as much candy as possible and have it dumped on the offices of King.com such that it crushes them. Bonus levels of funding would include making the candy and the experience of crushing them be as similar to the events in Candy Crush Saga as possible.
Of course, the entire project, culminating in the delivery/crush would be filmed, producing the Candy Crush Saga Saga.
Price tag? A "couple hundred bucks." A lot cheaper than the billions the administration has spent in the past four years beefing up cyber security
A couple of hundred bucks for one facility. How many electrical transformer sites are there? The comparison is false.
I also doubt it would be "a couple hundred bucks" but more likely "a couple thousand bucks", but a million sites at a thousand a site would still be significantly less than the cybersecurity money pit.
Note that it isn't *just* the legislature. It was a bill and the President needed to sign it. For Snowden, the President could just as easily give him a pardon without the legislature getting involved. Somehow I expect to first see pigs flying considering the way he has talked about it so far.
