Did they every explain why the General Lee's doors were welded shut?
If they did, I don't recall. I suppose we could speculate that they believed it improved the structural integrity when doing all those jumps.
You're making this data do double duty
That's the entire purpose of null in every language and data storage format ever. Some people say null was a mistake...
You've gone to far there. Sure, it's reasonable to have null and empty address be distinguishable. I'm not making that argument. I'm saying that it's wrong to have that distinction also stand in for..."Does the user want mail."
For instance: Today, you only want the address to send them junk mail or whatever. But maybe next month there's another reason you need it (the actual reason doesn't matter, here). So they enter their address and then suddenly they start getting your junk mail but they never opted in!
So...you've provided yet another case where I don't really care if the address is null or empty. They're effectively the same thing to me, and doing what you advocate is at least for the reason I gave above.
My wife doesn't understand, even when I use the tried and tested car analogy that you'd be pissed off if you tried to open a car door before realising it was just a flush piece of metal with grooves to make it look like a door, and a handle that serves no purpose.
She probably subscribes to the Duke Brothers method of car ingress.
Not sure who's they are, but we've also got:
@cark The History Channel did a series called "Hunting Hitler" where some guys investigated rumors that Hitler escaped to South America. They went from Germany to Spain to Argentina to Brazil:
I rate it as interesting and maybe plausible, but far from conclusive.
Of course, I only wear clothes because going naked would be assault on everyone around me (as well as being culturally frowned upon and cold), so.... Oh, and pockets. I need pockets.
Don't you live in the swamp? What about mosquitos?
