I have many complaints about the first company I worked for out of school hiring and paying me as an intern instead of a full employee, but I will admit that I did get quite good experience out of the deal.

I graduated with Honors last year, went through a 6-month internship (we're going to hire you on full time and pay you market rate! Honest! It's just this is a bad time right now, we don't have the authorization for more manpower, we'll keep you on as an intern though...) - found another job with that experience easily enough.
Now with only a year's experience, I'm getting headhunter E-mails once or twice a month.
Drunk Drivers are often prevented from owning/driving cars; or at least forced to own a car with a built in sobriety detector.
There have been reports that Adam Lanza obsessively played Call of Duty and Starcraft before he went on a shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., last Friday.
Starcraft? Seriously? That breeds killers?
you two appear to be agreeing with each other, and yet insisting that your opinions are different.
You change throughout your life, and can realize the views you're holding are wrong. I was certainly a little shit when I was younger, and will probably look back at the views I hold today and be at least a little embarrassed.
Interesting historical note; "Just following orders" has totally been an acceptable excuse.
Most people point to the Nuremburg trials when making the comparison, but every single person convicted in those trials was in a position of authority actively giving orders. No-one was even put on trial for being a front-line guard.
He's not violating the TOS, but he's certainly accessing the computer system without authorization, which is the actual felony crime being discussed. If anything, his guilt is even more unambiguous.
He has been denied his right to a speedy trial, [i]it is already unambiguously unfair[/i]. There's nothing leading me to believe the court's contempt for due process will stop once the actual trial begins.
Being held without trial for a year violates his right to a speedy trial. An even-handed, non-political judge following the law in any sense of the word would have dismissed all charges due to the violation of due process.
Presumably, the set of people interested in extensively using mods and script extenders are also the set of people who are willing and able to download a pirated version of the game.
So they just figure, "Let's just keep our fans happy."
Eh, Barring employees from talking about wages is a violation of The national labor relations act. I'd cry tears of joy if I had it on paper someone was firing me for that reason, because winning the resulting lawsuit would be basically guaranteed.
Just because some of the people in the neighboring countries are of arabian descent too?
Because the leaders of those neighboring countries publicly declare that the Palestinians are their brothers, and lead their countries to war on the Palestinians behalf. Yes, I know those leaders are hypocritical fucks that are just using the Palestinians as political tools instead of being honestly concerned with their welfare, I'd still rather live somewhere where the leadership is paying lip service to the idea of me being an equal to all the other citizens.
If all the resources that have been spent on attacking Israel were instead spent on providing transportation, housing, and education for Palestinian Refugees, the problem would have been solved by now.
Dude, Genocide worked pretty well for us in America.
I mean, there are a few natives still out there, but alcoholism is gonna finish'em off in a few more decades.
I hear wonderful things about what genocide did for the Australians, too.
Eh, if every other surrounding neighborhood had a culture similar to my own, and felt so strongly about it that they were willing to go to war to try to throw that new incoming nationality out of my neighborhood, only failing because they weren't strong enough to succeed militarily...
I'd move to one of those surrounding neighborhoods.
