And imagine someone beating your skull in with a 2x4 while you were getting into your car in which you were going to get into a fatal 18 car pileup on the highway, causing something that would still happen less than an hour later.
Assuming I was getting into my car with the purpose of injuring or killing myself? I don't see a difference either. Furthermore, if my plan involved colliding with other cars and endangering lives of others then the person beating my skull should be applauded (and if not, they still save some property and prevent environmental damage).
But your argument didn't seem to come with such preconditions, Mr. Strawman.
Well I agree with you that the problem lies in the legal definition, but laws declaring what's legal or illegal also shape people's perception. Woman deciding to perform an abortion isn't doing anything illegal and is not a story that you'll hear on the news, but now imagine media and people's reaction if someone kicked the very same woman in the guts while she was on her way to the abortion clinic, causing something that would still happen less than an hour later.
We've had enough stories about teachers who had (totally consensual) sex with her student, yet the media and the authorities were screaming "sex abuse" just because the so-called victim wasn't 18...back in my high-school days we could only dream about our sexy teacher giving us a blowjob.
Facebook didn't apologize to me but chances are that they don't even know that I have a problem since I don't have a blog a lot of people follow, I didn't write on my wall about it and I only tried to inform them through the generic report a problem feature that nobody seemed to read.
Of course, my life won't be at loss because I've never seen what would be on "My Year in Review" (after all, I've seen all the images that are meant to be there before) so I didn't made a big deal out of it and I didn't care enough to try to figure out why the images aren't loading, or inform people who might want to that that.
But regardless, fuck you Facebook for not giving me an apology.
Also, I'm not sure how you give credit to Constantine for founding Christianity; I thought that honor went to Jesus, or perhaps Paul or even Peter.
But none of them was a warlord so it kinda ruins the message. Stop ruining the party for anti-theists, parent! You're supposed to correct them by quoting some silly shit from The Old Testament, not by mentioning something they just don't pretend to know!
The movies were stolen? Now they're going to have to film them all over again!
I wouldn't steal a car, but I would download it.
. Today, hardly anyone has hard of Ceres..
Thank goodness, I would be worried for myself if seeing any celestial object would gave me a hard (unless they looked like a beautiful women which they generally don't, but even in that case, I would rather stare at a beautiful woman instead).
Skynet begins to learn at a geometric rate. At 1:35 A.M. Eastern time it runs out of disk space and crashes horribly
Better yet, Skynet, in an attempt to gather all human-recorded data and understand our behaviour, visits 4chan and its circuits fry while they are trying to process and interpret the acquired data.
If every online death threat were investigated we'd run out of police in about 10seconds. How about every death threat made in a bar while we're at it?
However, if only one in thousand online death threats were investigated, the amount of online death threats would quickly drop by several factors of scale.
