Considerably less than the cost in lives of all the American soldiers who have died protecting the "rights" of US-based oil companies in the Middle East.

I should think the safest place to hide would be among fundamentalists.
No large concentration of brains there to attract hungry zombies.
I'd still pick Silicon Valley, but yeah. Good answer.
Where would one find a large, concentrated population of the most selfish, inconsiderate, greedy, preening, risk-loving, egotistical, psychopaths on the continent?
Cue the Global Warming Denier trolls who infest this place in three...two...one...
So do action shots of me in my Captain Cocktastic costume (girlfriend's crotchless panties, Captain America helmet, red cape, and big, hairy winter boots), leaping to the attack over a suspiciously-shaped beanbag chair, constitute pornography, comedy or educational material?
If the first is true, should I worry that I may fall victim to this security threat should the pictures accidentally become public?
Thanks for an interesting perspective on this.
You proved your opinion is worthless, and you know exactly how. So I'll repeat myself: fuck off. You're a shill, probably paid by some government enforcement agency one way or another.
Your comment isn't worthy of a serious response.
There are adults here, and you don't belong.
Would I be correct to assume I'm seeing evidence of yet another conservative American somehow managing to raise himself momentarily up from the fetid swamp of willful ignorance and blind, vacuous stupidity that is his home to excrete more evidence of the decline of a once-proud nation onto the public stage?
Dude, you should just post a link to a YouTube video of a dog having a dump and save everybody time.
So how many millions of dollars did this "team of U.S. law enforcement agencies" spend in a whole year of fattening themselves up at the taxpayer's expense?
And what did they accomplish? They knocked Silk Road off the net for a few months, and in so doing helped it improve its security for next time. Now it's up and running again, making scads of money for the operators, and thumbing its nose at the U.S.
Oh, well, at least long-suffering taxpayers can happily contemplate about all the boats, cottages and retirement homes they've bought for Norbert the Nark and his Homeland Security buddies.
I think your grasp of this subject is flawed. The situation is exactly as I described it.
It seems I'm saying "Thank You" a lot as a result of my comment. You definitely earned one. And thanks, too, for going the extra mile to provide an excellent example of the way their new, censorship-friendly search works.
As I said, I don't spend a lot of time looking for porn. On the other hand, I don't like some search engine screwing with MY search results because they're intent on sucking up to religious types and parents who can't be bothered to actually parent their kids.
Thank you for this! Your help is very much appreciated.
As a resident of Canada, I find that Google has put a search filter in place that I can't get around. Basically, it makes me type in specific words like "breasts" or "naked" if I want to see picture results including such things. I don't spend a lot of time looking for pornography, but I don't want to worry that 10% of the the Ontario Museum's art collection is off limits to me unless I specifically go on a search for boobies.
No doubt this protects Miss Grundy and her fellow church ladies from the sight of the occasional naked breast, but I find it offensive and paternalistic, and as a result, I've cut back quite a lot on my use of Google.
