No it's not. The problem with USPS is that they have to pre-pay pensions 70 years out. No other Government agency or private company needs to do this, that's purely USPS regulation thanks to Congress. That is their main hurdle, not the unions or employees "getting paid too much" (seriously, do you even know any postal workers?).

Wow. The Valve bite-n-smile shills are out in force today.

Steam sucks, shill, because DRM sucks. There's no disclaimer on a product that says "BTW, this product will not work for XX hours a year on average because the DRM servers occasionally go down." Perhaps that should be a requirement.

Yeah they do, it's called the EULA.

Regardless, the concentration of melanin in human skin does not have a demonstrable relationship with mental ability. If it did, there would be a profound trend in medical literature, as people would become dumber after summer sun exposures. This does not occur. Therefore, the color of the skin is meaningless for the ascribed metric.

Excuse me, have you ever seen Jersey Shore? Not to say you're wrong, I just had to throw that out there.
