I used to be a rabid AMD supporter, until about ~5 years ago when I needed to upgrade the families PC's, did some research and picked Intel. AMD have really fallen behind, and I am sure the only reason the next gen console makers picked AMD is because AMD offered them bulk prices that they could not ignore.

And yet we have them and they are largely, if not universally, obeyed
What the hell are you smoking? Not even the US follows the Geneva conventions.
Guantanamo bay, water boarding, drone strikes on vehicles with "suspected" terrorists without checking if there are children or other non combatants on board.
I personally think Killer Robot's might be better in the field than some dumb jock with a trigger happy finger, and I don't just lump the US into this category, it's been an on going issue for EVERY army. Friendly fire isn't.

IMO if you bought Lenovo, you didn't give a shit anyway
Couldn't agree more, the only time I ever used a Lenovo was when it was handed to me at work. Look's like a pregnant brick, weight's more than a pregnant brick, and generally suck in all ways considering the pricetag. Besides, I ALWAYS format a new laptop, drivers are usually out of date when it lands in your lap, so you may as well DL the latest ones and make a clean start. Look, what they are doing is wrong, and retarded, when this news goes mainstream a lot of companies that supported them will drop them like a hot... brick. Oh the irony. Almost all of the companies that handed my one for work were financial institutions, they will not be amused with this turn of events, talk about shooting yourself in the foot.

And a damn good job he did, as much as I love the series, the middle of it was a grind to get through. Seemed like a lot of dress twitching and braid pulling to me. Especially book 10, although the end was awesome getting there was painful (and I took a day off work to read it). But Sanderson brought the series back to vivid spectacular life again.

if I would get a tiny life form growing inside of me, I would assume it's MY responsibility to decide if *I* want that to happen to me
That's a bit egotesticle, if you choose to have sex with someone you should also bear the consequences, after all it takes two (or three or BUKAKKE!) to Tango.
Placing all the anus on the female to prevent pregnancy is unfair and this will allow for more options when sex is wanted but progeny are not. A lot of people don't realise that something as simple as a runny stomach from a dodgy curry can negate the pill, as well as throwing up, anti b's, certain cough medicines etc. etc

That's just the thing, at some point someone will make a mistake, he should have been more like the Dread Pirate Roberts and retired before that happened. From what I understand he had made a lot of money, should have walked away while he still could (yeah, yeah I know easier said than done).
