Odd how everyone thinks its ok to steal a little electricity, is it also ok to siphon some gas out of a school bus?
Valid point. In the early ages of mobile phones and PDA's I once plugged in my PDA in a bar. The owner got mad at me for stealing electricity. Oddly enough, I was taken aback and did not understand why this was stealing.
Although there is a difference between stealing 5 cents worth of electricity and 5 dollars worth, your point is still valid. Why would this be acceptable?
