Well, I'm agreeable to this, as long as we get to read his communications, too.
Indeed. Climate was static for 300 million years before man started generating CO2. There were no rapid climate changes, no ice ages, no sudden warming spells. Ever.
Man, you really think he's a powerful god. I wouldn't be mean to him. He might be vengeful. Which party got us into WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam? Which party put 110,000 Americans into concentration camps? And which party was in power when we left Vietnam?
Bill did go anti-gun, in a huge way, in 1994, and his party got properly ass-raped for it. The hockey stick was proven to be bullshit. Any retcon to the contrary is also bullshit. If you compare the geology pages to the warmerbator pages, geologists know what the future of climate will look like, and CO2 won't have much effect other than possibly delaying the next glaciation, sometime in the next 10K-50K years. The temperature here has dropped 10 degrees in the last week. At this rate, we'll be at Absolute Zero within a year. I'm embarked on a tire-burning crusade to create or save 300 degrees. If I'm right, it should start getting warmer in about a month. Watch and see.
I "easily" fixed one of my broken shop tools when they stopped making spare parts. Had a friend turn a shaft, found bearings, dis-re-assembled. Took more time and money than replacing it entirely. A few days later, the trailing bearings failed. I recycled the steel and aluminum for $5, saved the motor to use elsewhere, and bought a Chinese import with a two year guarantee for half the price of the American one.
Late 70s, GM used Torx screws on headlight rings to "prevent theft," and wouldn't sell them to users. I did what everyone else did--hammered a Phillips screwdriver into the Torx screw, replaced the bulb, and put in Phillips screws.
Hey, open office plans are great for productivity in India and China. In fact, we might want to look at restricting restroom breaks and attaching people to their desks so they don't wander.
The true value of religion--teaching losers that there's a better world waiting for them. God's special little snowflakes.
And as the Falkland's proved, the French are whores who'll not only sell to anyone, but even after "suspending" help, will leave their contractors in place to resolve "existing issues." from a buyer's POV, this is an advantage.
Wait, there are music videos on MTV?
Apparently they didn't control the schools well enough to stop you from becoming an illiterate retard. I notice those who hate publik skool most are always those who clearly benefited least, but believe they're privy to some higher truth.
Star Wars is Kurosawa's Forbidden Fortress crossed with the Dambusters, Dune and Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. Dune is Exodus crossed with Lawrence of Arabia. I agree with your definitions of infringement vs piracy.
Whenever someone says "you can't "own" an idea," I realized I'm communicating with a jealous retard who's incapable of creative product. In the example you give, were a flintknapper come up with a new way to knap flint arrows, he would be fed and supported by his community (effectively paid royalties) and the idea would not be shared with other tribes. He would, in essence, own the idea, until he could teach a worthy apprentice the same trick. If that idea were stolen by another tribe, it would be deemed a loss. If it were shared at a council, then an idea or other value would be expected in return. This is not to say the OP is a clear case one way or the other, or that there aren't issues with IP law. But one can, does, and for a long time have owned ideas. The only people who argue this want the benefit of others' creativity for their own selfish use, without offering value to the creator. Also, any cursory reading of history will show that IP, replacing patronage, led to an explosion in arts and sciences. But hey, feel free to live in your mythical stone age, if it's so wonderful.
More laws! That will fix the problem! Should this be a Commerce issue, Education, or FCC? We can have them kick in the doors at DC and seize all the comics. THAT'll teach those corporate fuckers!
It's called a "boycott." You'll probably study it when you get to 7th grade.
