Or, as some other columnist has been writing since the debacle, "Empty Gox".
Possibly. Is it obviously true that I have a right to secretly videotape people "just to be safe", just because they're in my house and I have (or think I have) a good reason?
Late update to my own post: on the other hand, later in the comment thread on that same posting, he clearly believes in literal faith healing, in one case of a sprained ankle, so, uh...
I think if you read "invoke" in Eric's posting as "appeal to" rather than "cause to appear" you'll see what I took him to be saying. The one thing he doesn't believe in is literal religious magic. I am with you on all the other examples, though.
In the case of basketball, bear in mind that aside from free throws, every player who has devoted their life to learning to shoot baskets has a guy in their face who's devoted their life to (among other things) stopping you from making that basket.
Imagine how the experience of winning the lottery messes with your sense of how likely it is that you'll win the lottery. Especially given that you probably had a bad sense of that in first place, since you were a person who played the lottery.

The only reason we know about it at all is because there was a lawsuit filed accusing them of this illegal action. If it becomes totally legal, nobody's going to be filing that lawsuit in the first place, and the parties involved will continue to do it secretly.
You know who buys huge entertainment companies to everyone's amazement? Disney. ABC, Marvel, Muppets, Star Wars. Granted the Sony idea makes a little more sense because of the Japanese factor. But doing something as big as buying a major console company is something Disney would do.
That's my problem! I always try twice then give up. Thanks!
And your bank!
What does "more homogenous" mean in this claim, and how is it relevant to the murder rate?
"Most murders were intraracial, with 84% of white homicide victims murdered by whites, and 93% of black victims murdered by blacks."
If that helps them repay you the money they owe you, then at the end you have your money back AND the car you wanted.
Disagree. The Apple return policy is intended precisely for people who are interested in the product but not sure they'll like it. It's nothing like deliberately buying something intending to return it after a specific event.
