You sound like you are too willing to use logical reasoning and allow personal freedoms and responsibility to fit what I would consider "liberal." (I'm assuming you mean liberal in the sense of liberal politics in the United States, not liberal in the sense of "in favor of liberty."
Wish I had mod points.
By 1899, Bayer's trademark Aspirin was registered worldwide for Bayer's brand of acetylsalicylic acid, but because of the confiscation of Bayer's US assets and trademarks during World War I by the United States – and the subsequent widespread usage of the word to describe all brands of the compound —, "Aspirin" lost its trademark status in the United States, France, and the United Kingdom. It is now widely used in the US, UK, and France for all brands of the drug. However in over 80 other countries, such as Canada, Mexico, Germany, and Switzerland, it is still a registered trademark of Bayer.
Anonymous went mainstream circa 2007. Anyone thinking anything different has no understanding of what is actually going on.
The difference in salt is relatively unimportant.
The difference in salt is of primary importance since the purpose of Gatorade is to provide those salts that are lost during the natural process of perspiration.
You're also ignoring the caffeine present in the Mountain Dew and not in the Gatorade.
Gatorade is far from the healthiest choice of beverages to be swilling down in large amounts, however it is substantially different nutritionally than Mountain Dew, and your comparison is lacking in my opinion.
when people say "printing money" usually they mean "creating money."
What dialogs are you using to shut down? I go to the start menu and click "shut down."
third, who are you to decide what is fair? you didn't write the app, and have no idea how much time, effort, and resources went into the development. if it took me 3 man years of development, and i had to pay to license some technology, and i decide it needs to cost $30 for me to recoup my losses and make a small profit, who are you to tell me different?
I am the only one with access to the necessary data to decide what value I attain from the use of the software.
It doesn't matter how much it cost you to provide, if you can't provide it at a price that matches the value it gives to me then it costs too much.
In your example, if you need to charge $30 to make money and I don't get $30 of value from the use of your software, then you're the one that fucked up, not me.
I'm going to go buy something from EA just for the fuck of twisting your nuts
Mod this Funny! I'm still chortling at the though of someone buying an EA game to spite someone else.
In what way does it "actually work?" There are DRM free pirate releases of every game ever released in the past with "always on" DRM. It may take a few more days to crack, but it's hardly "working," especially when it's pissing off nearly all your actual customers.
Code Monkey is not a cover.
To be fair, at 25 years old and over 200 games bought on steam I think I fit the target market for PC games pretty squarely, and I just upgraded my 8800 GTS to a GTX550Ti on my computer that is around 6 years old.
I went from needing to run at medium/low settings at 1080 to being able to run just about everything maxed out at 1920x1200 for about $120.
I pretty sure no serious (by which I mean logically sound) skeptical arguments deny that CO2 contributes to warming.
The actual controversy is over how we can expect the warming to be exacerbated or alleviated by feedback loops.
"Alarmists" tend to claim runaway positive feedback loops will cause a dramatic rise in temperature in the near future, while "denialists" tend to argue that these positive feedback loops are counteracted by negative feedback loops that tend to keep the temperature within a reasonable range.
In your own home, with your parents present you are allowed to drink with their permission. However I've never known anyone who drank even primarily in such a fashion, let alone exclusively.
By far the most common form of alcohol consumption as a teenager in the US is binge drinking at a party: http://www.cdc.gov/alcohol/fact-sheets/underage-drinking.htm
If you're under 21 and at a party drinking alcohol you are a minor in possession, which is against the law in the US.
Nearly everyone drinks before 21, as a point of reference I was home-schooled by fundamentalist Christians, wasn't a particularly wild child, and I still was drinking (illegally) long before 21.
