What about charades? Obviously no one plays charades in real life but they do it in movies so let's analyze it like it's a real thing. There can be quite a bit of physical activity there and there is scoring with an objective winner. Is that a sport? If so, why is that a sport but Monopoly isn't?
The physical activity bit just feels like a terrible line to draw because it is so arbitrary and hard to judge.
How about this: people can call whatever the fuck they want a sport and then we just go with it.
The case, presented in March, has recently been updated in the New England Journal of Medicine, which confirms the 3-year-old was infected in the womb, and after aggressive treatment shows no signs of infection.
"We might be able to intervene early and spare children a lifetime of therapy,” Dr. Katherine Luzuriaga, a University of Massachusetts AIDS expert involved in the baby's care, told AP. “That is the potential impact of this case.""

But he died at age 37.
What is so horrible about letting people believe what they want, and feeling free to speak one's mind either in agreement or disagreement?
Who is stopping him davide? If someone says something I find offensive, are you saying that I have no right to want to avoid lining their pockets? What exactly is the point you're getting at?
I figure that this sort of interruption doesn't matter to the undisciplined ADHD crowd, but
There I go, off to ride my bicycle! What were we talking about again? Hey - you want to go out for burgers later? I need to wash my car.
I've walked through camps in the 3rd world, where people live in shanty towns and their homes are much more in-line with the definition of camp than people hosting LAN parties.
What does the Cold War have to do with any of this?
It doesn't sound like a simple shelter when you have a TV, playstation/xbox/computer, and a LAN set up to play games with friends. That sounds like a LAN party or a hotel room. Maybe to you, a simple shelter includes these things, but to me, it does not.
What you put inside of this "simple shelter" doesn't dictate the simplicity of it. If I come across a lean-to on the AT and put a computer in it that runs on a diesel powered battery, have I suddenly made that shelter to be something other than "simple"? If so - are the hikers on the AT who stay there not camping suddenly? You're funny...
I'm not saying they are having fun the wrong way. I'm saying they aren't camping..
Sure, it will consume more electricity, but say the extra electricity is $0.10 per PC times 18K PC's is an electrical bill increase of $1800. So we would need to generate 24 bitcoins in that 8-12 hours to break even and more to make money.
Using more electricity to generate money is not a "go green"-initiative, as others have pointed out. This proposal should be rejected as it is going to use more electricity.
I have had my CC stolen out of my mail and charged $3000 forcing me to be late on my fucking house payment, my car payment, my insurance payment, and my cable bill. The fraud was reported the day after and STILL it took over TWO MONTHS to give my money back during which time I had 30 day lates on some of my payments because even though I called the organizations I was late on payments for, two of them "forgot" to process my fraud report. I then had to go through 3 months of back and forth with the companies, police, my bank, and Experian/Transunion just to repair my credit.
Did you mean to say that you had a debit card stolen from your mail? Because your story doesn't make any sense if a credit card was stolen. I'd also suggest that you should position yourself financially to better absorb a 3k hit. Living hand to mouth like this is just asking for trouble.
