This is really a list of historical ground breaking movies.

Citizen Kane hasn't held up as well as film buffs like to think.

Vertigo is a good but not particularly memorable thriller. Psycho is way more important.

The Wizard of Oz, like Citizen Kane really only stands out in context of its time.

Casablanca and Lawrence of Arabia are truly great movies even today. I'm not sure anyone has ever really recreated Cassablanca's magic.

Maybe people shouldn't have to work so much? Just pay people a living salary for doing 10 hours per week or something. Isn't that the dream? If we get more stuff for less work, let's kick back a little bit and let people do what they want most of the time. I think we'll be amazed at what will happen when most of the world's time is freed.

So your whole country is being incinerated from the air. You have a few downed pilots who could tell you a thing or two about how to stop them.

Case Closed.

Only we hanged the Japanese torturers for doing that, and rightly so.

"Should any American soldier be so base and infamous as to injure any [prisoner]. . . I do most earnestly enjoin you to bring him to such severe and exemplary punishment as the enormity of the crime may require. Should it extend to death itself, it will not be disproportional to its guilt at such a time and in such a cause... for by such conduct they bring shame, disgrace and ruin to themselves and their country." -- George Washington, charge to the Northern Expeditionary Force, Sept. 14, 1775

You are a coward and a monster.

Without regulated net neutraility, your concept would never work, since the big carriers could just pick favorites among the little guys and dictate who actually gets to run fiber into your neighborhood. Yeah, other companies could, but they're going to get just a trickle of bandwidth.
