freedom of speech is not a collective right
No, it isn’t, because collective rights don’t exist. But if the First Amendment got the same respect given to the Second Amendment by the anti-gun crowd, your right to free speech would be satisfied by delegating it to a government journalist, who will speak on your behalf. You could exercise the religion of your choice, as long as you pray in a government-registered church, practicing a faith that’s approved by the Bureau of Religious Activity. You wouldn’t be able to personally take part in a peaceful assembly, but delegate that right to approved Citizen Protesters instead, who draw a government paycheck for the full-time protesting jobs they do on your behalf. You could own a typewriter, but it would have to be serial-numbered and registered, and nobody outside of government would really need an electric model, or (gasp!) one with automatic error correction or built-in high-capacity memory.
"steve alten" meg "over and over" "same
It’s a sin in this house to deface or destroy books. That said, I will tell you that the only novel I’ve ever physically thrown into the garbage can was Steve Alten’s “Meg”. You may draw your own conclusion from this information.
The Alphasmart Manager software won’t run on Ubuntu, so you won’t be able to send text to the Alphie, but it still works the other way, as a buffered USB keyboard. You can open any app on Ubuntu that takes text input, and send the contents of your Alphasmart’s files to it by pressing “Send”.
playing civ on a laptop without a num pad
Get an external USB numpad. Those are around $20 in most places. Most laptops also use the regular keyboard as a number pad, a function you can usually turn on with the Num Lock key.
how fast do werewolves heal
However fast you want them to, because they don’t actually exist. You make up their abilities as you write about them. Try to avoid the done-to-death tropes, and play with the genre conventions a bit. My favorite werewolf stories are the ones where the werewolf isn’t quite the hairy-at-full-moon-and-allergic-to-silver kind of creature.
what can you do with an alphasmart 3000
You can write, and that’s pretty much it. No Facebook, no IMs, no Twitter, no Solitaire. All you can do is write, which is one of the big charms of the Alphasmart series. There’s nothing to distract you from getting your work done.
softair m41-b pulse rifle
Nobody makes one of those. The movie version of the M-41A was a Thompson M1 submachine gun mated to a Remington 870 pump-action shotgun, and wrapped in a funky plastic cowling. Your best bet would be to acquire soft-air versions of those guns, buy a resin kit for the outer shell, and then put the whole thing together yourself.
locking under car seat drawer
Our Grand Caravan (which now goes by Dodge Grand Marnier) has a lockable drawer under the passenger seat, which is pretty handy for storing flashlights, First AId kits, and baggies of uncut cocaine. (Kidding, BATFE agents surfing the Intertubes! I’m a parent, I can’t afford cocaine.)
winchester silvertip "actual silver"
No, they’re not. They’re aluminum-washed lead. I like to carry them for reloads because they don’t tarnish in the pockets. If they were actual silver, they’d look black after a month of riding in a jeans pocket.
i fucked up the roof
I speak from recent experience when I say that restoring a roof to un-fucked-up status is a rather expensive undertaking. One should generally avoid fucking up one’s roof, or buying a house that comes with a pre-fucked-up roof.
neo by alphasmart get information off
Open the file that contains the text you want to get off the Neo. Plug in a USB cable between Neo and host computer. Open an application that accepts text input, and hit the “Send” button at the top right of your Neo’s keyboard. The text will flow into your application as if a typist on meth and Red Bull is typing it in.
ain´t no glock like the one i got
I hate to be the one breaking the news to you, but there are plenty of Glocks just like the one you’ve got. They make hundreds and thousands just like it at the Glock factory every month. It’s a generic plastic cop gun full of toaster parts—and that’s what’s nice about it, because you can carry it the way you’re supposed to without worrying about messing up the pretty finish. Also, if it breaks or gets taken from you, you can get another one just like it, stick it into the same holster, and be about your business.
Back to work now, peasant-worker heroes of the Revolution! Remember, from each according to their inability to fake busy work, or some shit like that. Tune in again next week for another installment!
