Yeahbut the response time isn't instant, and the guy has to be seen with the weapon first
For the short time between police knowing and the arrival of the armed supermen, that gun owner is capable of extreme damage and bloodshed
And bear in mind UK's substantially smaller population when you take general crime figures into account. Per Capita is usually a better means of determining the average.

Statistics per capita say otherwise ... After gun control in UK & Australia crime rates rose, You are now nearly twice as likely to get mugged or raped (per capita) in the UK vs. the US ... Yay guns!

Please, Mr Fanboy, go do your research before trying to answer someone.
Minecraft was NOT the first Voxel game, it was just the first SUCCESSFUL Voxel game, this made it get attention. People falsely believe that Minecraft is the " king " of Voxel games.
Minecraft is great, I played it for a very long time, but it gets boring, it lost its touch about a year ago to me, this is when my attention gets brought to other SIMILARLY looking games, games with much more potential, games like Seed of Andromeda.
Minecraft just simply cannot be improved beyond the state it is at because it is built upon an engine what cannot handle anything more.

The difference, would be the end goal for the gameplay and, right now, the extended view distance (even before the compression coming in the next update which should increase it even more) and the fact that each world is spherical and will exist in a physical solar system.
That's putting it very shortly, but you can check out the videos on design principles/current work in terms of programming on the site.

That applies to the second attempt in the year 2000, where they managed to only cool the nuclear spin temperatures to a value below 100 picokelvin, hence the attempt in 1999 is considered the world record for coolest temperature reached. Regardless, the Cold Atom Lab will be running experiments at that temperature soon, so we will be back to those temperatures soon enough anyway!

**Orc rolled image** They don't offer a good educational system? The fuck? "How in high hell is it an opinion?" It's an elitist system. The educational systems in those countries are fine. Stop trying to act like you're better than everybody else because it's cool to hate on America and England.

It has nothing to do with hating on America and England, the fact I've been through a good education in England doesn't sway me from the fact that I have seen what a typical school in England is like by comparison. Simple matter of fact is, they are not great, we simply don't produce enough high quality teachers, and the actual systems defined by the state (such as hours, curriculum and so forth) are just not based on the research and conclusions on the best methodology for teaching produced world wide. I extrapolate to the fact that America's education system isn't great either based on the opportunities provided in America for people to become teachers, as well as both first hand accounts and those statistics your seemingly refuted earlier.
America and England do not have fine education systems, if they did, the population of both countries would be able to achieve much more. The fact that England's population doesn't fit with the number of high-skill jobs on offer in the country means that we simply end up with others taking those jobs - not that I consider that bad, I personally don't see a problem with controlled immigration in to England (obviously not just free reign immigration - that wouldn't be good for any economy). I would also argue the same is true for America, at least from accounts of people I work with who live in America.
Both countries definitely do offer good education for some, especially the rich, but not for all. This is a fundamental problem with governments, who should have realised by now that educating their young is the only way to ensure success of the country in the decades to come.
