Compared to many of the people that manage to have the job title of "developer" in corporations, a "hobbyist" would be a step up.
In an attack of this kind, the mag stripe is likely entirely irrelevant. So it doesn't matter what security features are embedded in the card. Sooner or later, the card is going to have to be verified against a remote system and everything you need is going to be pure information past that point.
Same goes for those stupid electronic signatures.
Perhaps the greatest aid to counterfeiting ever.
It's a shame that such nonsense can't be confined to idiots such as yourself. It would be nice if your stupidity only had consequences for you personally. Unfortunately, that's not the case. Someone else will suffer for your stupidity.
> Copyright laws are meant to protect an artist's ability to monetize their creations
No. Copyright laws are meant to encourage the creation of new works. Such works are intended to be made available for future artists to build on.
> When on Medcaid your estate, after you die, becomes property of the state.
If you have an estate, this is not going to be a problem. People with something to protect have ample means to do so.
> so if your grandfather had invested in a building that rented out for his lifetime, it would be silly for you for continue to receive benefit from his idea and work?
Copyright is not property.
> The vast majority of Americans do not have a vitamin deficiency, this has born out over and over again.. Primarily due to fortified items.
Just pointing to fortified flour and handwaving away the entire issue is no real argument. It just shows that you are happy to be ignorant. Most people are. It takes a degree of effort to be aware of these things.
You probably have no clue at all how you relate to the government recommendations. You just have blind faith that others will take care of things for you.
Now I do have some awareness of these issues. That's why I raised the question that I did. I have much less faith in the magic unicorns ensuring that everyone gets all of the vitamins the government says they should be getting.
The issues here are likely subtle enough that a study of this kind is pretty meaningless either way.
People aren't dropping like flies from Niacin deficiency. That doesn't mean there couldn't be other issues.
Vitamins may be big business but lifestyle pharmaceuticals are much more lucrative. I am sure that if given the choice, that Big Pharma would prefer you to be hooked on one or more of those more expesnsive drugs preferably with a cascading set of side effects.
Vitamins are cheap and have no patent protection. Any old small time loser can join in the fun.
$12 a day is living large. That's including stuff like overpriced steak and sushi grade fish.
> Most of the poor cant cook and do not own all the special tools you have to cook with, you going to donate all your pans and utensels to people?
I know some trailer trash that could, also some "working poor".
That's really a stupid line of reasoning you've got there.
> I'm thinking you have no clue as to how poor people in the bottom 20% really are.
Nope. But they are stupid. Some of them would actually look at your argument and think it makes a lick of sense.
Been there. They don't need an idiot like you acting as an enabler for them.
> haha, not knowledgeable about running a restaurant, are you?
I didn't say that was pure profit.
However, I can make about 5x the amount of something and end up with a better quality result for the same amount of money by making it myself.
A restaurant has to ream you just to keep the doors open. It's just the economics of the business. That's why it's so ridiculously easy to beat ANY restaurant on price.
McDonald's isn't cheaper. That's just the excuse of lazy people.
> Spoken like someone who thinks that $5/lb Hormel salami
Nope. Troll harder next time.
Cheap vegetables are fresh and in season.
An exclusive brand name does not enhance the value or quality of a vegetable. it just makes it more expensive (like many things).
Some things just manage to be cheap to produce and lack any sort of glamour whatsoever. They make excellent staples.
> But is one week of 3 types of fresh produce items better than two months of multivitamins?
If that's the case then you're shopping like an idiot. That Kale is probably the most overpriced green leafy option going. The fresh Dill is also expensive and highly optional. The fruits hat you never name are probably much the same.
You can shop like a yuppie running amok in Whole Foods or you can be sensible about things.
You could probably do the same thing with the multivitamins too, opt for some excessively organic new age nonsense that jacks up the price 3x or 10x.
> What the fuck is "hummus"? Anyway, I've got better shit to do that cook exotic meals like that,
4 canned ingredients thrown into a food processor and pureed.
It's like a Lebanese version of Chili in that regard. It can be as simple or as overly complicated as you want to make it. It can be a few canned ingredients thrown together or you could go on a mad foodie complexity rampage.
Comes canned too. I will have to try the Spongebob branded variety sometime (just for lulz).
Google is your friend.
