ecosystem, but for working tools. Democratic messiness is great when it results in working tools. But as an end in itself, in software development? Meh.
What If, not exactly the classic xkcd comics, but worthy a book even if he don't expand even more the articles over what was posted in that site.
Also, Olympus E-1 pro digital camera (just 5 megapixels, but weather sealed and with 160,000 shutter actuations and counting).
Oh, and printing stuff.
So you're admitting that people are too cheap to buy a game yet somehow can afford all their other shiny toys such as phones, computers, most likely cigarettes and alcohol and a whole host of other items.
The loss of money by people stealing a copy of a game is irrelevant. The fact of the matter is they're trying to justify their theft by claiming poverty while they have all those other gizmos or miraculously find money to spend on other non-essential items.
If it would stop the illegals from coming into this country, I'd be happy. Even more so if in Russia had its bank accounts drained trying to keep the country running.
For the same reason when a woman is raped they immediately blame her for getting herself in that situation.
She shouldn't have gotten drunk.
She shouldn't have worn that short skirt.
She shouldn't have been walking alone at night.
I once worked with a guy who said if a girl in college got raped when she was drunk it was her fault, except of course if it was his daughter in which case he'd shoot the guy.
There will always be those who will blame the women just because they can, without considering any other option because their mindset is such that women are always to blame.
the stereotype of gamers, and men in general, are perpetuated.
Stereotypes exist for a reason folks. Keep giving reasons to use them.
The only issue I had with the Weeping Angels is the part about them not moving so long as they are seen by any living creatures.
It would seem that birds, mice, rats, squirrels, etc would qualify as living creatures so when Rory and Amy were sent away, how could the last Angel have moved when presumably some other creatures was watching it?
It's one thing if you're in a building (or cave where the only route out is up) where, presumably, you are the only creature able to see them, but outside is another matter.
If Comcast's stance is using universal access from the phone system, then they are tacitly admitting they are subject to federal regulation when it comes to internet service.
They can't have it both ways. If they're not subject to regulation because they are a data service, they can't now complain when CenturyLink wants to intrude on their territory while trying to use regulations for a service which they're not subject to as their cudgel.
If you get rid of the TSA, there would be tons of money available for such an endeavor.
