This is great information you've pulled together. I'd like to add that 5900 RPM is a common Seagate speed - and if the drive actually were 7200 RPM, it is likely based on past products in the market that it would be much more expensive than it currently is. Additionally, Seagate would miss no opportunity to advertise 7200 RPM on its website.

Whether via ballot box or ammo box, we replace the judiciary and the legislature with those who, regardless of "liberal" or "conservative" beliefs plan to uphold the fucking laws of this country, and prosecute the living fuck out of the folks who are doing this shit. Make some examples, and the rest will fall in line.

Except you know and I know that whatever your beliefs, the ballot box doesn't do shit any more. And I don't need to hide behind anonymity to say this shit.

Now *that* is some fine A++ wegyu-grade irony, there. I truly applaud you for your achievement. I'm not familiar with the song, but reading the lyrics which can easily be found online, I see that you've cherry picked line 23 from a song which appears to about alcoholism being a slow road to death. It also makes some observations about what drives those people to it. So, yeah, it's pretty handily misinterpreted by those who gain joy in anonymously shitting up internet discussions and basically being generally unpleasant people.
