So the Postal service is still the most secure legally protected method for sending data. Just mail CDs.
The USPS scans all mail
The USPS monitors mail on behalf of the feds without any authorization.
What's to stop them from opening it without a warrant? Sorry but the whole system is controlled and abused by your favorite government officials.
Sidenote: CDs were replaced by DVDs and now Blu Rays. Just fyi if you want to send more than 700mb of crap.
Wait until the first windy day until you see the real costs.
I can see the 2019 headlines now:
Come visit the 3D Printed Tower of Pisa!
Oh right, they already do that. Well, we need to invent something more invasive. Think of the Cartoonists!
...or 72 clones of themselves.
or 72 transsexual clones of Madonna impersonators.
The headline is highly misleading. It should read '65% of Cancers Types Caused by Bad Luck, Not Genetics or Environment'. This means the steep rise of cancer can be attributed to the 33% types that now take a larger share and depend on environmental or genetic factors. You need really careful with omitted words as people want to see and hear what they want and not what you want to converse. I guess a lot of don't regulate us, let's pollute and save money guys will soon join the bandwaggon.
Indeed, let me rephrase. No wait, let me sum up.
Remove the two largest types of cancer, breast and prostate, from the analysis. Then apply the remaining "types" of cancer, and state that 65% of those are not attributable to known factors. This is a "study" in hijinx that no one should read. People are pointing fingers at
Instead of getting lost in the fear factor of this thing, look at it this way. Percentage of total registered vehicles in the US:
Pickup trucks 18%
Now, remove those Cars and Station wagons, they have no relevance to my study. I have been able to prove that SUV Drivers are at the Highest Risk of Injury in a Vehicle. Why? Because pickup trucks have a slightly lower incidence of injury and I have excluded cars. But Wait! Did you know that the majority of the remaining vehicles are also over 4' tall? I now have a new study.
Study proves all Motorcycle Fatalities caused by SUVs and other oversized vehicles.
Well that was just some deductive reasoning. Remember I removed cars entirely? The other 2% were traffic barriers, bicyclists and pedestrians "known factors". You buy into that kind of crap and we know you are heading to stupiderville in a hurryboat.
Fuck the WSJ study and any asshole that dares to be fearmongered into believing that shit so that some sucktwit lobby group can go out and petitiion even dumber politicians that we need to impose a "35% liability limit" on all cancer lawsuits because 65% "just can't be explained!"
But, results aside, EA would tell you that it needed to use DRM to protect the company from piracy. Even if SecuROM failed, the company had to at least try, or else the freeloaders that live the highlife getting around intellectual property laws would win. Violating IP laws is wrong, damn it, and EA was going to do everything in its power to right that wrong.
Including violating a notorious patent troll's intellectual property to do so, apparently — at least, according to an East Texas court, which awarded Uniloc nearly $5 million after determining that EA violated the patent troll's patent with the SecuROM platform.
I have to admit, I feel a bit like the characters at the end of the original Jurassic Park movie, who were being attacked by velociraptors only to be saved at the last moment by the tyrannosaurus rex that had nearly murdered them all earlier. You don't really root for either side; you can only pray they tear each other apart."
Not sacrifice, just the 40 year old kind?
Well that brings me to a fun story of how I got into D&D. I was trucked off by my parents to Florida one summer to stay with a relative for a few weeks. Lucky me there was a hobby store nearby and I had stashed a jar of quarters that had been untapped all year. After looking around for a few hours (what else was there to do in Florida when you're 14?), I found the D&D books, they were already second edition but something about them intrigued me. They were way beyond the scope of playing a video game (we're talking monochromatic consoles/handhelds back then), but they offered so much wealth in terms of creation and exploration. I made the decision to buy a kit complete with DM Guide, Monster Manual and a few starter adventures. I went to the register to inquire if my terms could be met.
I asked the nice lady behind the counter "Can I pay with all quarters (in my New York accent which I didn't know until that day that I had one)" To which the lady replied "What are kawters?". I hadn't brought any with me, so it took me a few minutes to explain that 25% of a dollar was a coin that had a $0.25 value. When she finally got it she said "Oh you mean Kwat-ers." I came back the next day and paid with my Kwa-ters, laughing the whole way. It's one of those things you never forget, and part of it was because it was about D&D, a game that literally helped saved the bored skull of a preteen.
In the end, I actually became friends with someone I never got along with previously, simply because we wound up at a rather raucous D&D game together. Still best friends decades later.
Jim: See? In another twenty-five years, you'll be able to shake their hands in broad daylight.
Taggart: God darnit, Mr. Lamarr, you use your tongue prettier than a twenty dollar whore.
