I've taken my kids through the Wisconsin warehouse tour once almost every year for about the last 7 years, and they haven't updated much. But the kids still enjoy it as much every time. There's plans to close the Wisconsin warehouse, but apparently no timeline. Maybe the eventual closing of the site is why they haven't been updating it, or maybe since kids still enjoy it why bother changing it? But I agree that repeat visits by adults may be disappointing.
Unless I missed something in the article, it seems like his lego pieces were flat (2D) and he's not using the 3D capabilities of legos. There's other brands of building blocks he could use, but what would be really cool is to see him switch to Jelly Belly* beans- do a Google image search on Jelly Belly art, you'll be amazed.
(*I don't work for Jelly Belly, and I've not been paid by them, except for free samples from their factory tour**.)
(**Go on their factory tour if you get a chance. There's free samples!)
Does this ruling encourage those U.S. citizens who would align themselves with terrorists to stay in the country? Will they now want to do their 'training' here instead of abroad? It seems like a list of people traveling to terrorist supporting countries would be an easy first filter for the FBI/CIA/whatever to find these people, and they may have inadvertently reduced that capability.
There's a need for an app or device that protects all of the 'things' that the typical residence has, or will soon have, from malicious activity, or at least detects when they've been compromised. This Protector of 'Things' (POT) could report to you as soon as it detects any such activity.
With this system in place, you could get a text or e-mail stating that the POT is calling the iKettle hacked.
“The recent ambushes and assassinations of our law enforcement officers simply because they wear a blue uniform, that demands action.
Apparently cracking down on the subset of police officers who cause these sentiments, through their abuse of the public, is not one of the actions demanded? The 'solution' put forward by Dancer isn't even up to the point of treating the problem symptomatically. This is more like excusing and even encouraging bad behavior.
The current approach to criminal prosecutions premised on evidentiary requirements -- “finding evidence of a crime” -- places significant burdens on law enforcement. On the other side of the ledger, we do not perceive any real benefit to our citizenry by the evidence of an actual crime requirement in such cases -- no discernible advancement of their liberty or privacy interests.
After all, citizens would just be inconvenienced by a lengthy trial, guilty or not, surely they would prefer to avoid that and just be quickly whisked off to a nice corporate prison.
“They were like, ‘So you tried to make a bomb?’” Ahmed said.
“I told them no, I was trying to make a clock.”
“He said, ‘It looks like a movie bomb to me.’”
High school aged me: "That's because you're a ******* idiot." (That would only be said if I could stop from laughing in his face.)
There are web sites devoted to allowing former students to discuss the incompetence of the administration in my high school, yet even they would never have done something this stupid. The closest Ahmed came to making a mistake was showing it to his English teacher and not his Science teacher (if they have a Science teacher, I guess this is in Texas...).
