Think about it as being along the lines of the "just say no" campaign. Grandparents have no legal duty to bail out grandchildren, and both grandparents and grandchildren should be taught that.

There is at least one major world religion that will launch a crusade if that became universal.
Because hearing gets bad as you age and you're not totally sure it's your grandkid or not.
My point was seniors need to be taught that grandchildren are not their responsibility, they are their children's responsibility. All they need to do if they receive such a call is "call your mother".
I didn't mean to launch one at all by my post. In the long run though, 90% of all human production will be automated so, unless you are willing to bring back "The Commons" from which people can pluck from what they want, some basic form of subsistance will need to be created. The way it is now a man can hardly go on a hunt without violating some government enforced property right.
I was going to reply to the article, but for the life of me I couldn't find the "post" button. Things have been really out of sorts on the top menu too., Guess this is Dice's way of forcing "beta" upon us no matter how much we've told them we don't like it.
Anyway, back on topic. Why not just teach seniors to tell anyone claiming to be their grandchild to call their parents if they need money? It's not as if haven't spent a good portion of their lives paying to support parasites already, right?
exceptionally cold days, i.e. below 60F (or so).
Below 60F is exceptionally cold? Most people I know set their thermometers 65 to 68 during the winter. I keep mine at 62.
...considered a plus or a minus? I think that would be good starting point to consider what is fair and what is not. For example, if a song expects $1,000,000 per play and get zero plays then that song nets $0. A song netting $0.0001 per play that is played 1 time obviously out performs the song played 0 times as far as returns per songs played is concerned.
Fuck it, that makes no sense. It is the cocksuckers counting tenths of pennies per play who are keeping the rest of us from having anything nice.
...route, and I hope the suffer the same inglorious fall from grace.
Just a few years ago I would have implicated Sony, but Samsung's recent moves tell us that it is they who will violate confidentially.
Is this really what Samsung wants to do? I've been steering everyone I know away from Sony products for more than a decade now, and what I suggest when they ask what brand they can trust I have always told them Samsung. I ask you, is there any major brand who are on the side of consumer/customer privacy out there anymore?
...think they should pay anything for stealing the rights away from property owners.
...be paid to landowners for easements? We've already been sold down the river when it comes to commercial aircraft and radio waves that pass over our property. Personally, I think the line should be drawn here. You want to fly a drone a few feet over my house, you pay.
So WPA2 wasn't necessary? Really looking forward you to enlightening me here.
Are you sure? I thought WPA2 was created to solve the problems with WPA.
