Is the NPC rescue a quest?
Is it likely to give significant XP/Gold?
Does the NPC respawn even after I've rescued it once?

What, you put your actual address in there? Why? No one I care about would use the Whois to contact me by snail mail. And if actual authorities need to find me, then they can subpoena my billing address (or maybe, y'know, just email me and set up an appointment?)
I think mine is currently set to some hotel in Uzbeckistan. Next renewal I think I'll set it to a Yurt in Mongolia.
Stick all the company's assets into storage for the length of the sentence.
Except there's nothing stopping the publishers from opening up their own website to sell ebooks.
The barrier to entry isn't that high.
Offer them for less than Amazon, with a good user experience and people will flock to it.
ie. Pile 'em high and sell 'em cheap.
Or are you saying that Amazon has forced them into 'Most favoured nation' clauses where they aren't allowed to sell for lower than Amazon? (Like Apple did, which _was_ anticompetitive)
I think Amazon&Kindle is great for finding authors, especially self-published authors that I'd never have found otherwise. Or even new books from authors I do like - because I'm not going to sign up to 100 newsletters to find out when the next book is.
Sure, quite a bit of self-published stuff is dross, but the 10% sample feature (usually) allows me to weed them out.
I can understand that other people may have different points of view and find the occasional typo, grammatical error or bad typesetting upsettings.
But OTOH, self-pub is often less than 50% of the price of a traditional book, and when you read ~150 books a year, that makes a difference.
No, but it's government procurement - small companies or one man bands don't have the paper power to be able to jump through all the hurdles.
And even if they did, they would get hounded relentlessly by the anti-DP people.
I suggest import from Africa.
Remote control the guns, and let random people on the internet bid to be the one who gets to pull the trigger?
I'm guessing they would be the same people who get off watching beheading videos.
Too messy. Someone has to clean that up...
Criminals have had that problem solved since the start - position executee next to grave, shoot in head, body falls in, fill in hole.
It would be hard to find a modern citizen without psychological problems who could stomach a guillotine.
...So use a guy with mental problems? Maybe even an inmate. Or does the idea of a person enjoying their job make you feel weird?
(Note that I'm generally against the death penalty due to the large numbers of posthumous pardons. But if a convict chooses to die, I'm not against assisted suicide.)
Especially the double-tap to the head. Gotta make sure.
The smart ones go into law and politics....
Where you can buy, bamboozle or masonic handshake your way out of your crimes.
More than just a solution for overpopulation.
The commentary tracks are the only reason that I buy DVD/BDs. It means that I'll at least watch it twice.
They aren't included in pirate rips.
While I can't say 'No Commentary, no Sale", it's a _very_ high priority as to whether I'll pay more than GBP5 for a disc.
Or those numbers were for deep cover operations that shouldn't be disrupted by being raided randomly by other govt agencies.
Thanks evil ethical developer, you just risked federal agents lives.
The flaw in the Riddle is in the assumptions.
That "Evil" is a definable thing that everyone can agree on. What is evil to me may not be evil to you which may not be evil to God.
If you stub your toe, is that evil? Should God have stopped you? Or would it be more evil to prevent your temporary pain because they you wouldn't learn not to do silly things?
Or are you only defining certain bad things as evil? Say genocide, torture, rape, and murder? Because if all those things never existed, all that would do is change the goalposts so that thievery, vandalism and bad language were now the height of evil. Remove them also and things like being ugly, stupid and unwashed are now the height of evil?
Should God wait upon you hand and foot, serving your every whim and desire, preventing any pain of any kind because not to, you would consider evil?
Or would the greater evil be that self same bubble wrapping where you never leave the womb, never to learn, never to grow, never to mature?
