Publicized corruption, subby. Publicized.

At least it's measured in days. In DC they have to use milliseconds.

Reselling stolen devices with UIDs and GPS tracking when your name was on the original purchase order is a special brand of stupid.  How does this guy not drown in the shower each morning?

That's just what happens when one of the blacks gets all uppity in a room of republicans.
Am I shocked that they call her a racist and not pretty much any republican with a radio show? Nope, but fetch my feinting goat anyway.

I wonder if they can recover both of the stolen iPhones.

I've long pondered the millisecond. A metric measure of non-metric time? The calculations work out fine, but 24 hours with 60 minutes and 60 seconds and 1000 milliseconds is kind of silly.

I recall that one of the many governments of France once attempted to institute metric time. Not sure if it was 10 hour full days or 10 hour days and 10 hour nights. Either way, an hour was then broken into 100 minutes which consisted of 100 seconds.

That's a footnote in history because nobody cared about metric time and yet people complain loudly on the webzones that 'Murica uses those danged non-metric units.

So that's a new record?

Barbosa reported making an extra $30,000 at his NYU procurement job, authorities said.
"As a direct result of the filing, the defendant's starting salary was significantly higher than it would have been," Assistant District Attorney Emily Farber said at his arraignment in Manhattan Supreme Court.


I don't get this though. If you hire me for a job and you offer $100k, it shouldn't matter if you made $50k or $150k previously. Why in the farktastical universe would the pay be adjusted accordingly?
What am I missing here?

No, because right about the time that milliseconds mattered, logic and reason had prevailed and the millis siezed power.

Anything metric makes more sense than furlongs, hogsheads, rods, miles, inches, feet, hours, etc so it is never a bad thing. Any time someone says they don't understand metric (thanks for the warning), I display all my (10) digits to them and ask why not.

I'm fine with your explanation. I prefer it in fact.

Could you please list the nations which have embraced 100% metric time?

Didn't you know, your are not allowed to negotiate your salary.

All of them that use science?

Of course they aren't going to try to reinvent the clock, but as things progress, metric takes over.
I was an uber-precise machinist, everything was in nano or micrometers unless it was in wavelengths.
Standard is only good for one ten-thousandth, or maybe fifty millionths at best, and even then it is awkward (keep talking and writing it). I work in both.
Point is... science=metric and milliseconds are used for science not time keeping in pedestrian sense.

Did it ever occur to them that he did make $30,000 more than his procurement officer salary at NYU, selling I-phones?

Beats me. I would have thought an MTA job was a civil-service gig with the salary carved in stone unless the guy was coming in from a different part of the MTA.

Well I ain't going to feel bad now about abusing petty cash at work to the tune of $5 over 7 years when I get to go buy crap on my time and my gas.
