I'd have notified our allies that to send over a representative so that someone could have independently verified the identity.

I'd have had some Arabic observers around for oversight, and I would have let them watch the live video feeds and verify the identity of the body.

Considering that Disney created propaganda films for the US Gov't during WWII

Which, give or take, was 70 years ago.

and Walt was one of the most fervent supporters of Joseph McCarthy,

Both of whom have been dead for a long time.

this move is actually very much in line with Disney's track record.

That's not much of a "track record" you've cited there.

We Americans believe we have the right to enforce our laws and beliefs in other countries because 1. we can, 2. we do, and 3. there is nothing you can do to stop us. There is nothing you are capable of doing that can stop us from getting what we want, and taking what is ours. Whenever you see something in the news about some unilateral US adventure, whether we're assassinating foreign nationals or dropping bombs on some recalcitrant banana republic, I want you take it personally, as if my country was waving its middle finger a half-inch from your face. Because that's exactly how I view these things. :)

While that would be unfortunate, it really isn't the fault of the tool.

If the 'tool' is overwhelmingly used to facilitate crime, then it's time to ban the tool. End of discussion. No point-by-point rebuttal or cyber-anarcho-libertarian frothing-at-the-mouth is going to change this. Whine all you want, but the hammer is going to come down on these criminal scum and their sympathizers, and there is nothing you can do about it. I suggest you get over it and re-focus your efforts on making sure that you're in compliance with the the law, in thought and deed.

The reality is, every time people steal IP, the owners lose money. Period. Financial harm is always inflicted to the owners. There isn't much difference between someone stealing a car and someone stealing a movie or application. Imaginary masturbation to the contrary doesn't make it true. Stealing is stealing. Someone is always harmed. The only real difference is the amount of damage incurred. Every time you steal IP, at a minimum, you are devaluing it. As a result, the IP owners have been harmed.

This is the worlds smallest violin, playing the world's saddest song for those poor, poor IP owners.

Comment: Confession: I smell my farts (Score -1, Troll) 122

It's true- I'll waft them up to my face, or fart on something then smell that. I've noticed a difference between smelling farts off my fingers and farting into a towel and smelling that. I prefer the towel. Sometimes, right before I take a shower, I'll wipe my ass with a towel or my underwear to smell my butt-perfume. I frequently pull the covers over my own head when I fart between the sheets. Oh, and I love the smell and frequency of my hangover farts. I love leaving my room for a few minutes and coming back to smell my still-lingering farts hanging in the air. To me its kind of like climing out of the swimming pool, getting in the hot tub for a few minutes, then going back into the pool. If I want to fart without making a lot of noise I'll reach into my pants and hold my buttcheeks apart with my fingers so the gas can leave my asshole unobstructed. it actually makes a very audible "pssssssssssssss" sound. Like if someone was in earshot but they couldn't see me, they would probably be wondering if i was farting with my fingers in my ass. Sometimes if I'm in public I'll find "discreet" ways to indulge my fart-sniffing penchance. For example I'll try to pass gas as quietly as possible, then discreetly fan my thighs open and closed so the gas is wafted up to my face.

Loose bits sink chips.
