Yeah athletes get paid a ton, but they entertain millions and there are not very many. It's like winning the lottery.
Anyway, go scientists!
I work at a gas station. You get the next ticket in the roll, there is no picking your ticket. Also, we cannot play lottery for obvious reasons. So working at a convenience store won't help either.
Now, when we look way out into the universe at galaxies, x = 2y doesn't quite work, but if we use the formula x = 2y +
We don't know what the
Keep in mind, 5GB is A LOT of data. To give you an idea, it's about 250 hours of web browsing or over 500,000(!) emails. So this change shouldn't affect you unless you're a heavy downloader/streamer/etc.
So, if you use more than email you are a heavy user? If that's all people used the web for, I doubt it would even exist anymore.
Can they? No doubt.
Perhaps the most obvious example are gas stations very close to each other, it's mostly a single price broadcast on a big billboard and you can be sure it takes only minutes before they know their competition has changed their prices. They follow each other like a man and his shadow.
There is a reason for this! I used to work at a gas station, and law requires that we are within X cents of our nearest competitor and can only change prices once every 24 hours. Most stations opt then to do it right away in the morning before there is a steady stream of customers. These laws went into effect right after the gas crisis in the 70's to prevent price gouging.
Also, there is a good chance that all the gas stations in town buy from the same distributor anyway, so they all have the same cost of buying gas in the first place. Just because it's a Mobil for example, doesn't mean they by "Mobil" gas. The name really doesn't mean anything.
Is there no difference between the interrogative ("..we would ask...") and the imperative (for example, "...we demand that you remove...")?
When the person asking has infinite money and infinite lawyers... no.
Since when does modern day Christmas have anything to do with Christianity?
Since always, the words are almost the same.
Also, your post reads like something a 14-year old would write after he's finished masturbating over his Darkthrone albums.
I don't even know what that means.
I'd rather just celebrate the solstice with friends, fire, food, and booze and that's what I do.
Might I remind you that historically THAT is The Reason for the Season.
1. Fuck christmas.
2. Fuck religion and the people who think I am a dick for not participation in their bullshit beliefs.
3. Fuck giant corporations who make shit that we don't really need.
4. Fuck materialism, I know Jesus would agree.
5. Fuck you for once again making ME have to justify something that really doesn't need to be justified.
Happy new year.
