If you're wondering about the cost to the car, the quote continues:

"Granted, the turbine is better than that, but it is still sucking a tiny bit of energy from each passing vehicle. For a vehicle to move, it has to push the air in front of it out of its way. If there are obstructions to the air moving out of the way, the resistance to the vehicle is higher and it needs to expend more energy to move. Again, it is a tiny amount per obstruction, but it is not zero."

Quote from someone on Reddit more knowledgeable than myself:

"The turbine is taking energy directly from each vehicle passing by. Yes, its a tiny amount, but it is not zero.
There was a fast food place about ten years ago that installed a system to generate "free" electricity from the cars going through it's parking lot. There was a speed bump that was pushed down by the cars driving over it. To overcome the tiny bit of resistance of pushing down the bump, the cars had to burn a tiny bit more fuel. Sure, it was a tiny bit from each individual car, but it was directly sapping the energy from each car that went over it and was not "green" like the company selling it claimed it was." ~ u/nemom

Basically, these things are not free energy; they're windmills powered by petroleum.

Since 2007, Senate Bill 378 states that:
"Residents lawfully occupying a dwelling may use deadly force against a person who "unlawfully, and with force, enters or attempts to enter the dwelling"... ...or who commits or attempts to commit a "qualifying" felony such as "aggravated kidnapping, murder, sexual assault, aggravated sexual assault, robbery, or aggravated robbery""
I couldn't find (in the 3 minutes I spent googling) anything prohibiting guns in stores by owners. All this information may be false as I have no understanding of american legal speak.

(Not guest) I'll say off the bat I can't get a source for this, but US varies so much from state to state that it would be pretty difficult to nail down. However, in the more religiously governed states it is quite possible that the original husband would be on the hook for CS for a child that isn't his due to the traditional nature of some laws, especially those regarding family.

If you think that's alien, look up their life cycle. They have this weird thing they do where they essentially spend a portion of their life as a plant.

Presumably behind the scenes to make characters like Hagrid appear bigger than normal people. But I can't actually find any other info on it (in 20 seconds of googling).

Before I knew about YT to mp4 I actually did this once or twice. I knew how to set up a macro to screenshot the video x frames at a time but not how to do basic Googling to download it directly.
