Sql Plus, why are you not more fault tolerant

Fun fact: a lack of a space char in your tnsnames.ora file can make sqlplus (os x lion) not work.

1) works: TnsEntry = (description =(address = (protocol = tcp)(host =localhost)(port = 1521))(connect_data =(service_name = orcl)))

2) not: TnsEntry = (description =(address = (protocol = tcp)(host =localhost)(port = 1521))LF/CR(connect_data =(service_name = orcl)))

3) works: TnsEntry = (description =(address = (protocol = tcp)(host =localhost)(port = 1521))LF/CR/Space(connect_data =(service_name = orcl))

Pilots relied too much on computers these days

There's too much reliance on computers! Let there be cheap side-plane rides with pilots testing their mustard on hair-splitting landings on municipal airports. No to Ominipotence!!!

There's less of a chance to get audited if u don't owe rather if u r owed $

we all need to file (to provide 2nd perspective to others), but I really believe u r less likely to be audited if u r owed $ (as evidenced by recent IRS biases).

Why would the IRS more actively hunt u down if it owes u $. It's less likely, if only to cross-reference the other big guys>>>

Cluster Munitions get better

in the 60's & 70's, seems 1/3 of cluster munitions failed to explode; better 14% rate since then. Do they have nuclear cluster munitions?
