    The world of ownership in general is ending.
    Ownership will be a concept for the elite...
     
    Classic the rich get richer scenario. Only inequality is rising far faster now.

    Hi guys.
    Working 6 night weeks and running around after the kids kind of took it out of me, but I think I'm getting back into the rhythm of things.
    Looking forward to being back properly!

    Not much, just the mundane shit. Work, family and such.

    No.

    The closer i'm getting to 30, the more worried I'm getting as things just seem to suck more and more.
    I guess getting 'default respect' from strangers is a thing.
    But really, are there any actual perks, or is, as they say 'all downhill from here'?

    I do not.
    As I do not eat meat.
     
    *Awaits boos and hisses*

    ...I'm not a real vegetarian though. Pescatarian works for me.

    Probably because 'client' sounds more formal. It's all semantics anyway.

    Because even if it is locked you should be able to trust your partner with your passcode?
    My wife and I know both of each other's every detail.
     
    PIN for bank cards, internet banking details, codes for phones, online passwords.
     
    That doesn't give license though to literally spy on the person.
    Dingdingding! YES!

    Do you do this?
    Has your partner done it?
    Do you think it's ever excusable?
     
    For me, I've never done it, and I don't think it can be excused. I don't care how long you're in a relationship, if you think it's something you can't resist doing then there's deeper issues with trust that need to be addressed and they generally stem from the person going through the phone's stupid insecurities...And probably a bit of guilt on their part.
     
    I have had it done to me, and was pretty livid.

    Maybe this is area dependent, as I grew up (and have spent most of my working life in Fruit & Veg retail and wholesale.) and the scene of everything, with the exception of the News Agents, they're hard as to find is still thriving. People trust the smaller shops over the larger supermarkets, or that's what I've found. Oftentimes the supermarkets are more pricey and in close proximity to the more specialty stores anyway - plus don't have the same eye for quality.

    I own several of both. ios is the most stable of the 2 imo . Love my androids, but for stability and consistency Apple has it over Android. imo
     
    Apple ios offers the most stable and consistent OS for the grab and go end user or the less tech savvy/inexperienced. Android offers a very stable OS with a little tech knowledge and offers so much more in flexability and customization etc.

    TEL launched Musudan-4 IRBM could possibly hit Darwin, of course this is assuming the launcher was as close to the DMZ as the Norks could get it or if they placed a TEL on a ship hidden in a cargo container. Now the KN-08 and Taepodong-2 can hit anywhere in region, based on DoD reports the guesswork is the Norks have a minimum of at least six of each (KN-08 and TP-2) and a less than 50 Musudan-4. The real wildcard is the Nork SLBM which we know at a minimum is flight worthy, that can be launcher from anywhere in the ocean at nearly anything, the guesswork is "unknown amount". 
     
    Keep in mind, just a single IRBM or ICBM is enough to cause severe damage to on economically and politically on both a national and international scale. The Norks have such limited stockpiles, they really only have three choices; 1.) strike a target within range of their least capable missile system like the SCUD-D thus ensuring all of their stockpile can hit the target, 2.) strike extremely important strategic assets in a specific country that would seriously hinder a timely response, 3.) use what limited longer range missiles they have to strike select targets in different countries.
     
    Irregardless of which choice they make, nuclear response actions are very limited. Mostly, due the close proximity of other nations (South Korea Japan, China) from the threat of fallout and post-detonation contamination of fishing and transit lanes.  If the Norks launched an immediate action into South Korea after nuclear attack, it would limit the options for a nuclear response even further.  
     
    The jokes about the Norks are a good chuckle, but it's quickly becoming a rather worrisome  situation. In another 8-10 years, they're going to have serious stockpiles started and will begin to modernize and miniaturize their missile technologies.
