I kinda wonder what exactly prevents terrorists from buying up a bunch of drones, arming them with explosives, maybe doing a bit of tinkering to allow for higher speed/altitude/rage at the expense of battery life and then sending them to some major even like a football match or a concert.

For a big event, like the Superbowl, a big drone-free perimeter several miles in radius gives security plenty of warning.

>>11990 Should we seize people's property on suspicion? Stop being so fucking dumb anon, this is a place for intelligent discussion
For my two cents, this is wrong as hell and just goes to show how utterly broken our legal system is that this should happen in the first place, much less actually have to be battled out for SEVERAL YEARS.

cleaner emissions, relevant in California because CA has stringent air pollution standards. Converting an otherwise noncompliant vehicle from diesel to ethanol or natural gas (or even propane) is a cheap way of making compliance AND averting cap-and-trade pollution taxes. Many bus agencies and power companies (such as PG&E) already made the switch
however, due to the nature of ethanol (it has to be imported from the midwest), most companies prefer NG or propane because it's more plentiful and readily... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

In a speech recently, the prime-minister of Britain said "As a Christian country, we must remember what his birth represents: peace, mercy, goodwill and, above all, hope." Some are outraged that he's claiming it's a Christian country, What does /news/ think?
No we're not, and Christmas has never had anything to do with Christianity. Christians have tried their damnedest to ban Christmas time and time again, why should we honour their made-up god on our yuletide festival?
