... What gets me is why is there still no Equal Pay Amendment its the 21 century. (Since we are on the subject of women's right) So the female draughtsperson we employed should get the same wages as the male draughtsman we employed with the same experience and skills, sitting at the next drawing board, doing the same work?

I assume you would answer with a resounding "YES!"

But she walked in one day and announced that her husband had been moved to a different office by his employers and it was promotion for him so she wouldn't be in after that day, as she was going house and job hunting in the new location. She left part finished drawings, and a hole in our available staff hours. Is she giving anything "equal" to the service provided to us in return for the wages by the man next to her ? And do you wonder why employers are wary of hiring women?

... If a moron wants to ride his Harley without a helmet and risk certain death or vegetatative state ...
Actually helmets reduce the number of deaths by protecting the skull, but they increase the number of vegetative or quadriplegic state patients, thereby increasing the health costs. This happens because modern helmets are heavy, and when the body stops rotating the helmet continues to rotate, causing spinal injuries. Death is a relatively cheap medical condition.

AOL give out the same IP to thousands of customers.

Until there's a unique identifier for each machine, it's never going to be cut and dried. Even then, a person can claim someone else was using their machine anyway (if it were a one off incident).

Gav told me they are planning on doing something to identify individual pc's now, that's going to hurt the people who are happy stealing movies / music / stories / anything on the web.

I also use an ISP which has dynamic IP allocation - but - the ISP knows exactly which PC is on-line via a particular IP at any given moment, otherwise they couldn't send each individual packet to the correct PC (see note below), or (more importantly for the ISP) bill the time/traffic to the right customer. Therefore, with considerable effort, the PC using any IP at any known moment can be identified. For which purposes the government will deem it worth the effort involved is a matter for them. Clearly Joe Public will think it was worthwhile to track terrorists, but my bet is that the vice squad will decide that porn user tracing is also worthwhile, if only because it is their job, similarly with the copyright fraud police.

My question is "If porn is corrupting those viewing it, how are the vice police protected from being corrupted?"

Note: Yes, I know about promiscuous read.

I have no problem with this at all. Consider our government. How many millions of dollars do we dole out every year for medicaid and medicare coverage to treat people whose ill health is directly related to their diet? Type 2 Diabetes rates have risen 6000% in the last 30 years, and in the 1950s only one in seven people were considered overweight, while now two out of every three fit that description, while our consumption of simple carbohydrate-based foods (which is also the cause of Type 2 in the majority of sufferers) has risen astronomically.

The government, frankly, needs (and owes it to healthy people) to recoup some of that money somehow.

You do realise that there are many people hurt in road accidents every year and that your argument applies equally to the concept of increasing taxes on vehicles and fuel? Would you "have no problem" with that?

CISPA doesn't matter, does it? Either it passes or it doesn't, but that will only change actions already taken by your government from hidden-and-illegal to hidden-and-legal. There is ample evidence that the US Government, in particular the Executive, does what it pleases irrespective of the law. The latest obvious example is Guantanamo, where US law applies, unless you are an inmate.

I think the point of mentioning Natural Selection is that if they're stupid enough to eat that shit, they'll get heart disease or any other number of afflictions from being obese because of eating the foods that are bad for you and die. Hopefully not breeding before they do.
In medical science we have "obese" and "clinically obese". Virtually all top class rugby and American football players build up their muscles until their Body Mass Index reaches the "clinically obese" level. Now tell me those guys are going to get "any other number of afflictions" from their diets. I grant you they get injuries from high energy body contacts, but that can be avoided by getting that fit, and then not playing (see Gavin Henson).

By the way, my obese belly bulge cost a lot to build, so I have no intention of neglecting its maintenance.

Just two additions to this excellent series of advice replies:

Names: Do not have names which are too close for comfort (e.g Allison, Angela, and Andrea). Remember that you know all these people very well; they have been in your mind for months, or even years. The reader is meeting them for the first (and sometimes only) time. I make it a rule, whenever I can, to keep names as separate as they can be, preferably only one name with each initial letter (only one Axxx, one Bxxx, etc.) Also I would never use a name which can be confused with a status or position, for example, in a mediaeval romance I would never have a Mr. Lord, nor would I ever have a cleric whose title is Reverend and whose surname is Bishop, in the military I would not have a Lieutenant Driver. I have collected lists from Internet “baby names” sites and before I start a book I make a list of names for characters in the book, many of which have no assigned character at that stage. After I finish a book I usually have a lot of names left over, but that doesn’t matter – there will always be more needed in the next book.

Crowds: Perhaps allied to the last comment, do not have too many main characters in your story. Readers find it difficult on first reading to distinguish who is what if there are more than about five main characters in a story. If a reader starts to feel confused as the story progresses it is likely that (s)he will just hit the button, and possibly remember your name and not start your next story.
