I would lose $50,000 if I sold my house due to the state of the market.
I do't understand this. If you buy your house at 400K, and the market goes down a bit in your area then it is now worth 350. But the house your were going to buy has gone down by a similar proportion to. The housing market only matters if you have two houses or if you are changing housing markets.
PS Of all the places on the internet you use "stealing",
That's not economical for a gas station.
That is a really weird way to put it. If it costs the gas station more, then they will charge more until they can do more than break even. No one is forcing them to sell at a loss.
I'm guessing they are referring unauthorized Easter eggs?
Since it was my understanding that the original Easter eggs used purposefully to sidestep the code registration process. Since software patents only required the first X number of lines of code to be submitted...
I doubt that. Easter eggs have existed long before software patents which didn't exist in bulk until 1994.
All great ideas are controversial, or have been at one time.
