Maybe. Perhaps Thai Union was going for vertical integration and wanted to have control of the fried shrimp lifecycle all the way to your mouth, but bit off more than they could chew.

Marketing. If people think Dolby is good, they will prefer products with Dolby compatibility, and Dolby makes money from that licensing.

There's microplastics in your urine too.

I don't think people are playing Kirby games expecting Dolby surround sound anyway, so this seems like it'd be a pretty easy decision.

It's not that crazy if you're not committing to all-out war. Even if you bomb someone into the stone age, you still can't control their territory without boots on the ground. Then it's a land war, and people build defensive fighting positions, and the trench is very effective.

Wouldn't they blow it up? Seems like that's their usual choice, since it makes a statement, not subtle sabotage.

Probably not at all. I'm no expert on Iran, but I'm pretty sure I've never heard about the president of Iran on the news at all. Ayatollah Khamenei, on the other hand, plenty of times.

Shitty paper boxes with heavy contents get beat up and broken pretty easily.

Hippocrates also described the four humors.

Their theory of atoms was also that they were indivisible, being the most basic building block of all matter. Obviously now we know that that's not true.

They described a lot of things, and were wrong more often than not. Their biggest contribution was really just progress in the scientific method itself.

Problem is that asteroids are very hard to see, as they are both cold and dark, meaning they don't stand out against space very much at all. And even a micrometeoroid poses a risk even when traveling at low velocities (e.g. someone orbiting earth, the meteoroid itself has a relatively high velocity). Getting hit by a 1cm meteoroid at warp 1 would be devastating.
