You may schedule several minutes of shame for yourself in the next several months to cover over your micro-aggression.
Sorry if the truth hurts, but that's how the shit flies. Sure, some do it out of patriotism and with enough "the enemy is everywhere and trying to kill YOUR CHILDREN" propaganda anyone can be very patriotic until they find out that at the other side there's just exactly the same ordinary guy trying to live his life and getting by somehow. Few and far between are the hyped up supersoldiers who'll die gladly for land and fame. Usually you have a bunch of people who just want to make another day go by.
It's not the ordinary guy that "hates" you. Far from it, usually they don't give a shit about you. It's just like it is over here: The real assholes are up at the top. Kill them and the world is a better place.
So it isn't me, it is kinda odd that this guy's defection comes conveniently at exactly this point in time?
Some people really know to come right on cue.
Love of Country sure is much easier if you're part of the nobility. Actually, fuck the country, but as long as it makes my life pleasurable at the expense of the 99% of the rest, what's not to love?
In a country where the internet is about as commonplace as for us having your own rocket launch system in the backyard? Please. How do you hit NKor via internet? Take down their online payment system? Hack their official pages so their citizens would get to see defaced pics of li'l Kim?
I can see that as an offensive force, but defense? Please.
No, the hack certainly wasn't part of their plan. But after it happened, they sure wondered how they could turn it towards their favor.
Who the heck said it was NKor? Sony? The US? Ok, that's nice. Anyone who isn't, let's say, a wee bit biased?
Not that I want to defend li'l Kim, but I just don't believe they have anything close to resembling anyone who could do shit like that.
No, I prefer spending nothing on a movie that's not worth my time, let alone my money.
Certainly not just 'cause it allegedly pisses off some little megalomaniac gnome I care even less about.
6 bucks to see a shitty movie?
Leave it to Sony to make money from having crappy IT security...
Don't worry, it will be available outside the US. The internet treats territory protection as what it is: A bug. It will route around it.
Right out of the playbook of "how do you market a shitty movie that has been panned by critics left and right so people would STILL want to see it, no matter how big a stinker it may be".
It's almost like they hired Uwe Boll as consultant.
It differs in such a way that I pay my utilities for their use. I use water, I pay for it. I use power, I pay for it. It's not like I have to pay extra again to use power I already bought.
Make that legal? As far as I can tell such shit is already legal. What would keep them from doing it? You bought their crap, it sure says something like that they can fuck with you any way they like in the fine print, so what's not legal about it?
Consumer protection whatnow?
