Seriously?? In a country where people plea-bargain to get a shorter sentence, even if they know they're innocent because they can't afford a descent lawyer, therefore leaving the real perp to go free and a 'magically solved' crime. A country that rich get off free, and the poor get sentenced. You can't even fly FPV now! No problem here in Europe.

The US government does behaive like a dictatorship on many occasions. It's easy. Either you have evidence, in which case charge them. Or you don't. I see little difference in a dodgy country that controls it's citizens at will and the US. Next they'll be locking people away for years without even a trial. And make them wear ugly orange suits....... oh.... hang-on......

How do you think the president became the president? By lobbying and spending millions of dollars. He affects how you live and is still influenced by outside corporations. That's constitutionally fair, right? So another group are operating in the same way. It's part of American life. If th And to those who are going to reply with "but he was elected", well not by me or millions of other people he wasn't. But he still affects us all.

the fact that water if regularly venting to the surface means that there are likely very thin areas of ice that can be utilised. Even on our planet life exists in very, VERY hot water that until recently we thought that life had no chance there. NASA had spent billions of dollars sending landers to Mars, a dusty boring planet. Once ok. Over and over.... a compete wase of money. Europa = a good chance we could actually find real living life. Way move exciting than Mars could ever be.

He was then, because of the way he was brought up and the time he was living in. I bet he wouldn't be now. These days, science and religion are mutually exclusive. Unless you want to be labelled a 'crack pot'. People didn't know any better then. They do now. Religion has had it's day..... time to grow up and move on.

Very unlikely. YouTube is integrated in to most modern media products e.g. TV's, bluray players, consoles etc. On these, these is pretty much no alternative. And for most end users, it works well. And any alternative that exists, is likely to be sued out of existence by copywrite holders for using game content without permission etc. Google are just covering there arse. It's a business, with a product you've been happily using for free for years. If it were owned by Apple, trust me, it'd be way more limited and protective. You'd probably have to wait for months for your videos to be 'approved', before being listed.

It's a poor workman who blames his tools.
