I hate how the Xbox 360 controllers, if disconnected (And mine decided to do so randomly last night), jumps to player 2 and then you CAN'T fix it without freaking restarting your computer. This seems to be a known issue at my dads work, too, as that's what they have to do there too. Like Jesus Chri...

There is only one thing Minoa could wisely do, and that is learn from the mistakes of the previous administration so that future administrations will not make the same mistakes. For example: 1. Make the judiciary totally independent. 2. Elect the president with a two-round run-off system instead of ...

The legal status of polygamy is complicated in Minoa. Polygamy cannot be registered in Minoa, since a marriage or civil partnership is defined as being between two people, without distinction to sex or ethnicity. Polygamy may be permissible if they were legally performed in a country that allowed po...

I also went for the Samsung, but they also do 1 TB in M.2 physical format now, which means a bay to spare for the main documents drive or front-line backup.*

Also I'm not sure if this is the right place to bring this up, Trotterdam, but the wiki entry for Issue #865 does not specify that option 3 requires that the nation holds democratic elections.

Self-completed tax returns have the benefit of minimising fraud and evasion. They also prevent over-taxation.

So, tax season in the USA has started and I saw that new Form 1040 . Honourable effort, but the point of tax reform is that in many countries, like here in London, we don't even need to touch the tax return form unless a certain criteria is met (e.g. self-employment).

There might be a big chance that Russia and the US might start a proxy war in Venezuela.
