A huge part of that issue, is why? Trains are much more efficient so why does it cost 4-5 times as much to take the train?????

I would LOVE to take the train to NYC, but I can't justify pay 4 times as much. Hell, If I could get a train ticket for 40 dollars I'd be all over.

Back in May I looked at train service to get to Philly. They want 100+ dollars ! ??? Are you fucking kidding me?

As of last July, you could still upgrade your phone (paying full price) and keep your data plan. I even bought my LG G3 at a VZW store because no one else had it yet. ( I did have to listen to them try and talk me into switching. I finally told the guy "I'm rich I can afford to pay full price :P )

If your current phone uses a micro sim you can just buy your phone online and swap the sim. That's what I plan to do for the next upgrade.

(unlimited for life :P )

I heard home versions were all non-blockable, but the enterprise versions you could.

Most companies won't go anywhere fucking near Windows 10 unless they can test in-house with their software before pushing it out to the users machines.

Personally, I'm hoping that shit is the first thing hacked so you can block updates.

What will probably happen is they'll fat finger a update, trash a tens of thousands, or more people's computers. The publicity shit storm will force them to allow blocking of updates.

I personally always wait a couple days before updating.

There is a reason "heirloom" Tomatoes are coming back in a huge way.

That's next on the list, because might not what a real tomato should like instead of the tasteless baseballs of today...

And before someone starts in with "Ah but they're not GMO!" Exactly, my point kids. If we can create the abomination that is the modern tomato with "traditional" methods, imagine what the what will happen with no restraints at all...

i don't if they make GMO's, I want a fucking label. Its none of your fucking business why. If I want to pay a farmer more for his product, because his crops have higher loss rate. That MY rights. INFORMED decision is the corner stone of capitalism. That is what has been bought and payed for buy Monasto.

And the money involved makes it VERY likely that process is corrupt at MANY levels...

The limitations imposed by "traditional" methods impose hard limits on what can be done.

I personally, don't mind creating and selling GMO's...

I very much mind not being allowed to know WHAT my food IS. This corporate shill of a law is prime example of the subversion of how capitalism is supposed to work. For capitalism to work properly the consumer need to be able to make a INFORMED decision. That is being denied to me.

Can anything be sadder than work left unfinished? Yes, work never begun.
