    You're yet to provide a basis for this claim. Specifically, all you've done is quote the law, you haven't provided any precedent for your narrow and specific interpretation of it. I realise that in your head, you saying "I think we should XYZ" is sufficient explanation for anything and everything, but out here on planet Earth, you'll need to be a bit more specific.

    "We should use money with intrinsic value" "We should use money with intrinsic value" "We should use money with intrinsic value" "We should use money with intrinsic value" "We should use money with intrinsic value" "We should use money with intrinsic value" "I don't know what 'intrinsic value' means." Literally you.

    LOL Oh dear. Looks like you don't know what "intrinsic" means! Aw bless!

    Smallest, most direction antenna

    The narrow beam width should make up for that and then some. It'd also mean your quad could land in any orientation and still receive a signal, right? You're right that the bulk would be significant though, I just didn't realise HOW bulky it would be. At 433MHz, λ=~70cm, so a meagre 12-turn antenna would be over 2m long. Makes a lot more sense for microwave.

    How about a helical antenna? https://www.tutorialspoint.com/antenna_theory/antenna_theory_helical.htm I actually built a pair of these in the early 00's to set up a long-ish range (3km) wifi link.

    Israel did it.

    I'd say what about previously banned users circumventing their ban, but there was an amnesty recently right? I noticed nickeax and a few others came back.

    Arcade tokens look a lot like coins to me. Basically every arcade used these from the mid nineties onwards, some still today. Given their prevalence across that time, it should be easy for you to find a case of an arcade operator being charged for simply "making coins", which is what you're claiming is illegal. If you can find such a case, I'll eat my hat.

    Darn Coalition surveilance laws. Why?!

    I'm not sure if you're trolling or not? They're clearly talking about data stored on devices, and in those cases, law enforcement will have the ability to get, for instance, the BitLocker recovery key from AD. It's pretty cut-and-dried. In fact, I don't even need to assume that: It also goes on to say ....are you OK man?
  10. As long as you keep saying "the same as any other murder", then you're still implicitly agreeing that there are certain situations where it's justified, if not called for.

    Atomicans Gettin' the (tw)Itch!

    I don't make money yet, but the end goal is to supplement my income with something I enjoy doing. If you're only watching Streams of people silently playing a game, then yeah, sure, a Youtube LP is of equal or greater value. The good streams are the ones where the host interacts with the viewers, and generally creates a feeling of community.

    Israel did it.

    Translation: I waded through conspiracy theories while meticulously ignoring reputable sources, so that I wouldn't have to wonder if maybe the conspiracy theories are wrong, which would make me wrong, and undermine my reputation as a beacon of objectivity and rationality.

    I think you're deliberately choosing a very narrow interpretation of that text to fit your ideological position. You can't make a coin and say "this is a dollar". That's all it's saying. You can make your own coin from whatever you want and call it whatever you want, you just can't purport that it is an Australian Dollar, because that's forgery. The law prevents you from creating counterfeit Australian Dollars, not from creating a token for your own micro-economy if you so wished.
