I'm surprised WB didn't pull their idea for a Bleach movie out of development hell rather than trying some of these ideas. I realize it would have major trouble getting viewers outside of the existing fanbase, but that has to be more people than would pay to see Aquaman.
I don't think anyone could explain it to you. If I understand you correctly, you wouldn't see anything wrong with the situation outside of Australia in Manna by Marshall Brain.
Humans and many primates have an instinctive sense of fairness which would make them feel anger at such things, since we have an instinct to co-operate as a species.
Yeah it's too bad this absurd logical extreme is the only alternative to the status quo. If only there were some possibilities in between...
Well, that's it then, the shamans of capitalism have spoken and they say the invisible hand spirits are mighty upset by these theories and we should never speak of them again! They've never led us astray before, have they?
Really? I had no idea Reagan and Bush Sr. were such big egalitarians...
If the F-35 budget clusterfuck ended up funding practical fusion power, it might just pay itself off!
Mine are only available in brutal dictatorships however, while yours are available anywhere crime exists.
The MS salesmen actually use the threat of spies coding on open source projects as a scare tactic. Unironically.
Wow really, the recent issues are a factor? My company uses plenty of FLOSS and heartbleed/shellshock haven't been a bigger blip than any of the Windows/IE/Flash/Adobe Reader zero-days that are routinely discovered.
Thank you. I said essentially the same thing above but got downmodded for it.
Am I supposed to believe that the general public is aware of open-source software at all? They're hardly aware of the concept of "openness" in the first place.
I expect our civilization to implode before we actually do a manned Mars mission.
So do I, but that only delayed my estimate slightly.
Careful, this opens up a lot of ironic death possibilities.
I don't carry enough money that these notes would be useful. For things like cars or houses where a note like this might make sense, I'd be OK with the government knowing about it - you have to register those things with them anyway.
