It is and there have been numerous studies to back this up. The stories about Rohypnol and GHB are all moral panic bollocks. Why bother using complicated, hard to obtain and potentially dangerous drugs when good old fashion vodka will do the trick for a would be rapist. This is a solution for a problem that does not really exist.

I have never seen mediahint blocked and I use chrome to access US netflix from the UK. Here is the thing about that.... netflix know very very well that this is happening... they have to with the amount of ML profiling and monitoring they do. My account is clearly marked as a UK account and it would be trivial for them to check against that. But they don't. The do a geo test and if you pass that you get thru. They know... they don't care. It means more people will sign up for netflix if they can get both UK and US access.

I think the confusino is that none of that shit is the OS. It all looks like the user land of the OS. My udnerstanding is that BBOS10 is QNX Neutrino at the core... that OS is rock solid(former QNX system developer here). It's one of the most stables OSes around... makes Linux./BSD look like DOS is some regards.

It is better to give than to lend, and it costs about the same.
