The MBTA prohibits pursuing, taking, killing, possessing, selling, and transporting migratory birds unless done in strict compliance with federal bird law."Jan 22 06:36
DaemonFC"Don’t let the name of the law confuse you, though. A bird doesn’t actually need to be migratory to be on the list of “migratory” birds. (See, for example, Fig. 2-1.) Even when scientists haven’t quite figured out if a particular bird migrates or not, chances are good that it’s still on the list. So, yes, it really is a federal crime to kill a mockingbird."Jan 22 06:36
DaemonFC"Say, for example, you’ve attained streak-free plate glass windows and an egret happens to meet its abrupt demise flying into one of them. Are you a federal criminal? The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit once held that it “would offend reason and common sense” to convict someone for that kind of bird death. Still, the court held that “[s]uch situations properly can be left to the sound discretion of prosecutors Jan 22 06:37

DaemonFCStep 2: Cry a little. Remember: eagle in the house.Jan 22 07:18
DaemonFCStep 3: Apply for your permit.Jan 22 07:18
DaemonFCStep 4: Wait for a decision. By law, the regional migratory bird permit office will not issue a permit unless the director determines that your removal of the eagle is “compatible with the preservation of the bald or golden eagle.” If the director decides the eagle is better off living with you for a while, move on to Step 5.Jan 22 07:18
DaemonFCStep 5: Accept it. You live with a bald eagle now. Try to make the best of it and respect each other’s space. "Jan 22 07:18

DaemonFCMost states endorse some form of the “castle doctrine,” which permits a homeowner to use deadly force against a violent intruder in his or her home. But this is a bald eagle we’re talking about, not just some stupid person, so that defense doesn’t apply. Getting rid of this intruder without a permit can’t be done without a little lawbreaking."Jan 22 07:19

DaemonFC"Unfortunately, Wikipedia doesn’t have an entry for “eagle removal,” so it’s really anybody’s guess on how to go about the removal or what constitutes appropriate eagle-removal gear. Presumably, though, offenders will at least want to have eye protection and some rubber gloves. Coupled with some sort of implement for guiding the eagle out of the house, this makeshift setup may give you just the right level of confidence Jan 22 07:21
DaemonFCto calmly approach an eagle and bring the situation to a peaceful end.Jan 22 07:21
DaemonFCBut none of that is realistic. If you try to remove an eagle from your house, it’s totally going to attack you. (See Fig. 2-15.) Even if the risk of federal charges wasn’t enough to deter you from this plan, knowing the pain of eight razor-sharp raptor talons in your back probably would have done it. But it’s too late now. This is why it’s important to always read ahead."Jan 22 07:21
DaemonFC"Anyway, the good news is that you’ll probably pass out shortly into your tangle with the eagle, either from panic or blood loss. Eventually the eagle will have had enough of your pathetic display and leave through whatever window it was that you stupidly left open in the first place. Problem solved."Jan 22 07:22

DaemonFC"In 2009, a grand jury indicted a man named Bernard von NotHaus under both statutes.8 Despite his name, von NotHaus wasn’t indicted for being a Bond villain. The government alleged that he had minted coins of his own design called “Liberty Dollars” and that they were made to look like U.S. coins. The indictment also alleged that von NotHaus intended to introduce the Liberty Dollar coins into the U.S. economy in order to compete withJan 22 08:20
DaemonFC U.S. currency. The government didn’t like that, so it charged him under both Section 485 and Section 486.Jan 22 08:20
DaemonFCAt trial, the government called a professional numismatist as an expert witness to weigh in on the similarities between the Liberty Dollars and genuine U.S. coins. He noted the use of reeded edges, a serif font, phrases like “In God We Trust,” and the word “Liberty” were all attributes shared by the coins.Jan 22 08:20
DaemonFCAlso important was the Liberty Dollar’s use of the Statue of Liberty on one of its sides. That iconic symbol of liberty, coupled with the other factors the government numismatist identified, were sufficient for a finding that von NotHaus had made coins with sufficient “similitude” to authentic U.S. coins. The jury found von NotHaus guilty on all counts of the indictment."Jan 22 08:20

DaemonFC"One of the reasons that our prisons aren’t yet full of food criminals is that the FDA and USDA like to handle things their own way. Violations of food regulations are often addressed out of court by a strongly worded letter to the food maker telling them to get their act together or else. In late 2017 a Massachusetts bakery learned this the hard way after it had the temerity to list “love” as an ingredient in its granola bars. ThJan 22 08:32
DaemonFCe FDA sent the bakery a letter warning that “ ‘Love’ is not a common or usual name of an ingredient, and is considered to be intervening material because it is not part of the common or usual name of the ingredient.” According to the FDA, this rendered the granola bars misbranded under the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and subjected the bakery to sanctions. The FDA stopped short of noting that listing “love” as an ingJan 22 08:32
DaemonFCredient could also be charged as a federal crime.7Jan 22 08:32
DaemonFCThe moral of the story, of course, is that if you’re going to make your food with love, the FDA wants you to please just shut up about it. And if “love” is a euphemism for some other ingredient, you’d better tell us what it is right now.Jan 22 08:32
DaemonFCYet, even if the FDA’s granola letter demonstrated its deep disdain for love, another of its warning letters revealed that the agency might actually have a soft spot, and that soft spot is mayonnaise. In mid-2015 the FDA issued a warning to a company for selling vegan “mayo.” According to the FDA, it was necessarily misbranded because real mayonnaise contains eggs, and vegan mayonnaise is made out of whatever the heck vegan mayonnaiJan 22 08:32
DaemonFCse is made out of. In a heartwarming twist, however, the FDA and the mayo company later announced that they had “met to discuss the issues cited in the warning letter and worked together to address them.”8"Jan 22 08:32

DaemonFCFor those of us refined enough to know when and where to use ketchup properly, there is some good news: federal regulations classify ketchup as a vegetable. That makes it a lot easier to justify a pile of french fries as a healthy choice.Jan 22 08:57
DaemonFCAlthough federal law may not regulate the appropriate uses of ketchup, it does regulate its consistency. Specifically, 21 C.F.R. § 155.194 provides that ketchup may not flow at a rate faster than 14 centimeters in 30 seconds at 20°C, as measured by a “Bostwick Consistometer.” (See Fig. 4-12.) Any faster and it fails to meet the standard of identity for ketchup, making it a misbranded food under 21 U.S.C. § 343(h). Thus, while yJan 22 08:57

DaemonFCBut relax, they’re nonhazardous. Okay?Jan 22 09:29
DaemonFCThe FDA publishes a list of “defect action levels,” which establishes just how much filth the FDA will let slide in raw food products.15 For example, canned or frozen asparagus can contain an average of forty thrips per 100 grams of asparagus before the FDA will consider it adulterated.

The law permits cheesemakers to have dead eyes no matter what kind of cheese they are selling."Jan 22 09:37
DaemonFC"Grated cheese is “the class of foods prepared by grinding, grating, shredding, or otherwise comminuting [chopping up] cheese of one variety or a mixture of two or more varieties.” However, 21 C.F.R. § 133.146(a) is clear that “cream cheese, neufchatel cheese, cottage cheese, creamed cottage cheese, cook cheese, and skim milk cheese for manufacturing may not be used” (emphasis added) to make grated cheese."Jan 22 09:40
DaemonFC"To be fair, this is actually pretty good advice nestled within a federal regulation. Grating cream cheese is a frustrating and mostly futile endeavor.

mjg59_Er, s/board/committeeJan 22 21:33
DaemonFCYou mean the hacks and cronies that were already there.Jan 22 21:39
DaemonFCLike how Mitch Daniels appointed the board of Purdue, then they appointed him after he left the Governor's office.Jan 22 21:39
DaemonFCThen once he was at Purdue, there was a banned book list.Jan 22 21:39
DaemonFCEventually, things got so bad that Indiana University filed to get out of IUPUI and IPFW because they had a reputation to maintain.Jan 22 21:40
DaemonFCYou mean they put you on Debian because of a similar arrangement and bad things will come of it and the idea is that you and the other trolls will finish Debian off and remove a threat to Microsoft.Jan 22 21:41
DaemonFCYou already had most of your work done for you I suppose.Jan 22 21:41
DaemonFCIt doesn't seem like they actually know what they're doing with packaging and integration. If anything, it's gotten worse.Jan 22 21:41
DaemonFCThe Debian/Ubuntu world is sort of dead already as far as where the community is off to.Jan 22 21:42
DaemonFCIt happened for a lot of reasons inclusing woke-ism, but mostly because of the breakdown in technical quality.Jan 22 21:43
DaemonFCIf the worst thing going on with a software project is trannies with blue hair raging about microaggressions on a Web site, well, you can just not go to that Web site presuming the software works.Jan 22 21:43
DaemonFCSo there's more to this, like Firefox, than that.Jan 22 21:44
DaemonFCThe technical superiority is gone. It's gone from meritocracy with ideals to a kakistokracy with Matt GULAG.Jan 22 21:44
DaemonFCIf the worst thing about Firefox was the "political party" problem at Mozilla, well, don't go there except to the download page, maybe.Jan 22 21:45
DaemonFCBut Mozilla is malware that is barely even Web compatible.Jan 22 21:45
DaemonFCSo why use it?Jan 22 21:45
DaemonFCThe biggest ways the "Web platform" changes in Firefox is when they blind-copy stuff out of Chromium and change some lines to shim it up to Firefox.Jan 22 21:46
DaemonFCGecko development hardly even happens anymore.Jan 22 21:46
DaemonFCThey have enough people to cargo cult Chrome (barely) and plug CVEs.Jan 22 21:46
DaemonFCI think there are probably more people taskes with adding and maintaining the malware in Firefox than there are Firefox itself.Jan 22 21:47
DaemonFC*taskedJan 22 21:47
DaemonFCWhen malware was a new concept and was relatively primitive, I took the initiative in helping devise solutions to get it off of people's computers or to render it inoperable.Jan 22 21:49
DaemonFCAt first, the malware authors primarily took advantage of the fact that most people didn't know anything about computers, much less why their Windows machine was popping up porn sites and hijacking their Web browser.Jan 22 21:49
DaemonFCSo it was crude, bundled with something, and didn't really anticipate the user taking steps to get rid of it.Jan 22 21:50
DaemonFCEventually "fighting back" against programs to remove it was a priority, because enough people were affected that there was a cottage industry for removal software for it.Jan 22 21:51
DaemonFCI'm primarily not talking about viruses because anti-virus software had been around for years.Jan 22 21:51
DaemonFCToday, Firefox is malware. It's built right into the binary, and you can't call it Firefox if you remove it.Jan 22 21:51
DaemonFCWhen you type anything into the address bar, Firefox sends it to three places. Google, Mozilla Pocket, and an "advertising partner" that runs "Suggest".Jan 22 21:52
DaemonFCSo it's a keylogger transmitting to at least three organizations.Jan 22 21:52
DaemonFCSarbanes-Oxley requires them to not throw anything away.Jan 22 21:53
DaemonFCSo if you start typing in "the wrong thing" into Firefox, well, they know you did it, and it's there forever, and not one, not two, but three companies can be hit by a warrant.Jan 22 21:53
DaemonFCBut even if that doesn't happen, they're doing it to drive three separate ad systems too.Jan 22 21:54
DaemonFCAnd ads suck.Jan 22 21:54
DaemonFCThey create a profile of your computer and how you use Firefox. How many tabs do you use? What times of the day are you opening it? How long does it run per session? All kinds of stuff. And that gets assigned a GUID and associated with Firefox Account.Jan 22 21:55
DaemonFCAlong with your entire browser history and all of your bookmarks and passwords. And they can decrypt them.Jan 22 21:55
DaemonFCAgain, Sarbanes-Oxley.Jan 22 21:56

DaemonFCThey don't even pretend to be anymore.Jan 22 21:57
DaemonFCBut even if they were, it's not good. They don't set anything up properly.Jan 22 21:57
DaemonFCIt's an integration mess. The whole thing is a rats nest of software in configurations it was not designed to work in.Jan 22 21:58
DaemonFCA 14 year old could set up Gentoo better than this.Jan 22 21:58
DaemonFCAre you going to fix any of that or are you just going to scream about who needs to be canceled?Jan 22 21:58

DaemonFCYou don't send a message by punishing someone for their bad behavior.Jan 22 23:01

DaemonFCWe know Gus Fring in Breaking Bad will order the murder of a child.Jan 22 23:05
DaemonFCHe did it once.Jan 22 23:05
phanesif they compromise yours by lies, they've taken that advantage but assumed a risk for laterJan 22 23:05
DaemonFCSo when he threatened Walter "I will kill you. I will kill your wife. I will kill your son. I will kill your infant daughter.".Jan 22 23:05
DaemonFCHe meant it.Jan 22 23:05
phanesDaemonFC, when i talk about them assuming a risk for later that's an important distinction too, because it becomes useful later while building them up on a false platform that can be destroyed laterJan 22 23:06

immibisDaemonFC: the government losing a suit is a punishment in the sense that the department was given a certain amount of money, and now it doesn't get to use all of that money. Remember, corporations also steal your money, so by your logic we shouldn't sue them eitherJan 22 23:16
