Had one mod point left and wanted to spend it on this article but deciding to respond to your question instead - YES they should be let go, not only because of the unconstitutional legal tactics of the DEA, but because drug prohibition itself is the true miscarriage of justice here! Deaths and social harm? I think you're a bit confused if you think anything other than prohibition is responsible for most of that.

how's the sound on the concert videos? i've found the gs3 completely useless for recording live sound because it totally oversaturates the mic and comes out all static. my old iphone 4s was better but still distorted quite a bit. trying to find the best one for my next purchase, because the sound is the main thing i care about, but these things are never covered in reviews. sounds like it's either htc one or a nokia but I'd rather stick with android unless the nokia is clearly superior

Happening because 17 yr olds who know nothing about writing and deploying production grade software get their hands on Ruby on Rails and think they can do anything including handling lots of money. Thats exactly what happened here. Some months ago I invested a whole 1 btc into Bitcoinica to see what the fuss was all about. The site was so obviously programmed by some amateur that I couldnt even withdraw my 0.8 btc after taking trading losses for a while, took me a while to figure out that one withdrawal method was completely broken, so I did manage to use another to get my 0.8 btc and run, but this site was clearly heading for inevitable disaster to anyone with real professional software experience. Always try before you buy

PS also must say in my experience in the software industry, to the credit of the 17 yr olds involved, even grown adults who do know a thing or two about writing and deploying production grade software still make inexplicable mistakes like not making DB backups. S**T happens but some s**T is more likely than others.

it may not be the world around but it means the mass of a US pint is 450 g which is quite close to 454 g = 1 pound Obviously under the assumption that 1 pound, a measure of force, is equal to the weight of 454 g of mass, so the whole thing is only valid for US measures taken on planet earth.

Where I come from, we willingly pay money for things we like even given the opportunity to get it for free. Because we want the creators to make a good living and make more of it! And they don't fuck us like bitches in return! I highly recommend anyone concerned with this just turn around, walk away, and spend your energy, and money, on doing something positive for someone who's not trying to fuck you like a bitch. Cause I dont like to get fucked by anyone except the Mrs! There's no point fighting or getting fucked by pricks in suits. There will always be pricks in suits and even if you beat these pricks there will be more pricks lining up to replace them. Until everyone stops playing their little games anyway.
