The problem with common sense is that sense never ain't common (Lazarus Long)
Re: Queen wasp stinger
In common wasps the queen has a stinger and eggs don't pass through it (anymore). However, a lot of solitary wasps don't have a stinger and still use the egg depositor for which it was intended, e.g. depositing the egg in eggs or larva of other insects.
Worker wasps are infertile females, not males. And the sting is evolved from an egg-depositor.
While I like the references to Starship Troopers (R.A. Heinlein), I think references to Space Cadet (also R.A. Heinlein) would be more appropriate in this case.
Comparing Xi with a bear is one thing, but what about the comparison of Shinzo Abe with an ass?

South America will probably join as well.
You get a criminal record! And you get a criminal record! Peach state goes bananas with expanded anti-hack law
Re: Trial by fire
Trial by fire is also a technique you use against criminally stupid legislation. Just make sure those legislators get convicted on a law they passed themselves (shouldn't be too difficult in this case).
Well regulated militia
That is the part of the second amendment the NRA consistently neglects.
Having said that, I will uphold the right to arm bears ;)
If the damn thing draws a shamrock on your Guinness, you're allowed to rip out its CPU.
Only if you are a regular in that bar (not a tourist) ;)
Re: And so it goes....
4) Already happened, the Nordic mythology is correct in that aspect. The idea of hell as a hot place comes from ancient desert dwellers who couldn't think of something worse (lack of imagination).

As long as Caller-ID is available, German numbers are as traceable as UK or Dutch numbers. German numbers start with +49 (and Dutch with +31).
Re: Special Law Services
Just make that Special Revenue Services ;)

A huge improvement you mean?
The right to arm bears
I will always uphold the right to arm bears.
That aside, the second amendment also mentions a well regulated militia, something missing from all quotes (and all communication from the NRA).
Re: I'm not sure if the hackers are the worry in this case
I am none too sure about the water either, there is some Hydrogen3 oxide around as well.
