Ebola isn't realistic either. You'd get more results with empty glass vials and a written "Deadly Ebola" label in a few dozen big malls.

The widespread panic would have the same effect for much less cost.

Considering that the goal of a terrorist is to spread terror, having a documented case of getting ebola could be very effective. Oh, wait...

they can, just borrow $100 billion to build out a network, negotiate with every redneck and podunk town to get franchise rights to run their cables and spend more money for marketing to get customers

Or, pull a Google, and do one town at a time and watch the incumbents suddenly offer free peerage and lower rates.

If you've given up on them then support someone else's work that doesn't use DRM. Don't use TPB and justify it to yourself because it was inconvienent.

Don't get me wrong, not all officers are this way. Many are selfless public servants who get paid a pittance to risk their lives every day. My hat goes off to all of them who are doing the job, regardless of their ego status. Just don't fool yourself, some of them have some serious ego issues.

There are many good cops. But until they go after the bad cops and run them off, all of them are represented by the assholes in the news.

Always draw your curves, then plot your reading.
