Considering that the Jews are gleefully committing Genocide of Canaan 2.0, I don't get how anyone can say that those willing to fight back against the Jews rather than just lying down and dying are "aggressors" The racist Jews who spit on Christians, drive non-jews from their lands and want to bury all Palestinians into the ground to have their "Promised Land" all for themselves are the aggressors.

Suddenly you forget that any filesystem other than NTFS exists.

Not This Fscking S#!+ again. True, Microsoft has been trolling the IT world by patenting exFAT and getting SD Card Association to mandate its use in SDXC. But supported Windows desktop operating systems (since Vista) can read and write UDF on flash drives. Or do specific Microsoft products have problems with UDF?

It's like, you know, books. We don't all read the same novel chapter by chapter at the same time.

Oh really? One thing that Collodi's The Adventures of Pinocchio and Dickens's Oliver Twist have in common, other than that Walt Disney Pictures loosely adapted both decades later, is that they were both first published as serials.

If it was built around a $200 Dell Laptop with an Intel Atom Processor, would you list all of that, too?

No. And the reason is that a $200 netbook costs a lot more than $35. Part of the perceived embarrassment is how cheap it is to build a rig that remotely 0wns someone's Chromecast device. If mentioning the Raspberry Pi brand is too much of a Slashvertisement to you, would "a $35 single-board computer" sound more honest?

I've never seen an episode of Under the Dome. Yet, I know how it ends.

That'd be relevant if all dramatic series on pay TV were adaptations, the way Game of Thrones and Under the Dome are. But things like Breaking Bad and The Sopranos are original. (There is a novel titled The Sopranos but it's completely unrelated. And no, I myself don't currently follow any such "things like".)

Let me put it another way: Waiting for the season box set breaks the shared social experience of all being at the same point in an original serial work. Then the question becomes whether this experience is beneficial.

I'm sorry, your QUESTION must be in the form of A QUESTION!

I'm aware that this question isn't in the form of a question. But neither was Hamlet's.

The individual shared responsibility tax introduced in the Affordable Care Act doesn't change one thing about tax law in the slightest: if you have a taxable income, you have to pay tax. But you do raise a more general question about whether taking away a tax evader's right to vote through imprisonment is constitutional under the "or other tax" provision of the 24th Amendment.

Breaking Bad is off the air, isn't it?

True, Breaking Bad itself has concluded. But people who followed Breaking Bad while it was showing had the problem that I describe, as do people who follow other original shows produced for pay TV networks (the "things like").

I am not sure if Android is even supposed to support a hardware keyboard.

It is. I've used both USB keyboards and Bluetooth keyboards with my first-generation Nexus 7 tablet. Android 4.3 broke the ZAGGkeys Flex keyboard (and several others using its chipset) but Android 4.4 fixed it. And a few people in my circle of friends have Android slider phones. I know Pixeline and the Jungle Treasure plays far better with a keyboard than with the on-screen controls.

The real mystery is why anyone who has the slightest clue about technology, would buy or wish to use a computer that runs software you cannot control or replace.

Nobody with a clue "wishes" to use such a computer. They instead suffer through it because such computers are the only affordable ones, possibly because people without a clue are a bigger market. Even on PCs, which computer lets you replace the BIOS?
