Nah. It's because the Spanish police kept retiring after 6 months on the job.

No? I can't make jokes about Spanish laziness? Fine.

Kidding aside though, it's going to take a bit of time for the law enforcement to catch up to cyber attackers. The US anti-cyberterrorism (or whatever that's called) was only setup after obama came to power and I'm fairly sure they're not very organized yet.

I would like to point out that this sort of accounting is not a new trick anywhere, not just in hollywood. This happens all the time, where a company would pay its sub fees above the fair market value of the service provided in order to create losses. The problem here is not the fact that they paid themselves, but paid too much.

Ideally, The terms for these types of related party transactions should be set out in the contract. Not bickered over after in courts. Especially since this has been going on for ages and ages.

Commercial transportation at Mach 6. That's definitely the application they're striving for. Definitely. Don't you have enough deadly toys by now?

Blagh! Not another one. Go back to wheatgrass and let the men decide when we have enough deadly toys.

I think most men would agree that the answer to that is "not quite yet."

Dinosaurs aren't extinct. They've just learned to hide in the trees.
