Isn't it unreasonable to require a warranty longer than a year for a consumer product? Realistically, if the device you bought is defective you should realize it within a few months. But certainly a year is long enough to notice a defect and get a replacement/repair.
Isn't it unreasonable to require your device to work properly for longer than a year. Realistically, if the device breaks down within two years it's poorly fabricated. But certainly if the device breaks down sooner and you have to buy a new one, the company makes more money.
I can get the same entertainment value from a copy of a movie or song as I can from the original.
The same thing can be said from your quote: Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.
Does that mean I now owe you because I copied your quote and I can get the same entertainment from reading it as the original?
If it doesn't apply to your quote how about a magic trick, an acrobatic move, a cooking recipes? Where do you draw the line? Well you don't, because it's all the same thing. As long as copies leave the original intact, it has no value.
That's kinda the point.
That you missed.
Now who's the moron?
I'm still missing the point, then. Is this not an attempt to make a statement that copied money is equivalent to copied files? Please explain what I've missed, since I'm so stupid and you're so smart.
It's making a statement that by the way MPAA & RIAA considers virtual copies of a film/game/song to be worth as much as the original, you might as well put the same logic to currency. Which doesn't make sense the same way that virtual copies of a film/game/song being worth as much as the original.
Iran has attacked Americans in Iraq and Afghanistan by supplying weapons to the insurgents, and via its Lebanese puppets it indiscriminately sends rockets into Israel.
And guess who attacked Iraq and Afghanistan in the first place?
Some long-distance train hauls can take more than 7 days.
I don't know what trains you've used but I've done 1000km in a few hours. Any long-distance train that goes at that speed (and they should) isn't any national problem anymore.
When did "we" ever make any pretenses about being journalists or any sort of NEWS organization?
Well, you know.... like: "News for nerds, news that matters" perhaps?
we have bigger issues to deal with; wars, health care, money crisis, etc
What other wars, money crisis or health care problems than the ones 'you' created?
