The question was whether vaccinations should be "required", not whether they are effective or safe. This makes the question ambiguous, because you have to make assumptions about how the requirement will be enforced.

dating back to the original assassins, who had to get hopped up on a little hash before doing their tasks.

Vancouver has NO taxi service. It is not a taxi town, everyone drives cars. Taxis, when you can get them (airport or phone in) cost real money. Public transit is perfectly fine for the young and poor. Vancouver also has the worst traffic in North America, according to Wikipedia.
I live in Vancouver, and none of this is true.
Why is there even a discussion about this?
See your sig.
Dangerous? Lucrative, more like.
Much of the information is "published" without the user's knowledge or explicit consent; for example, most people probably don't realize that pictures taken with smartphones are automatically geotagged. The point of the app is to remind people that you don't have to make constant "I am here" posts for people to be able to track you.
We don't have an adequate word for stuff that we are not ashamed of, but still don't want everyone to know about. If we had such a word, it would be a whole lot easier to refute the "why do you need privacy, if you have nothing to hide" argument.
The fact is, there is widespread prejudice against a lot of relatively benign personal interests. We just can't resist judging people, it's part of the human condition. Hiding your otaku-ness from the outside world is probably a good idea.
Then I guess you'll just have to download the DRM-free version.

Yes, that is the thing, governments should stay out of morality, its best for everyone.
So, you are saying that murder should not be illegal? Theft? All laws are about morals, it is just a question of which morals are important enough to be enforced by law.
No, laws are about protecting people's rights. If someone is murdered or stolen from, their rights have clearly been violated. If a minor murders an imaginary person in a game, or sees a nipple on TV, no rights have been violated.

Personally, I'm not sure the whole 'WooHoo, I can now vote in the US' is worth it - which seems to be the only other *practical* difference between a GC-holder, and a citizen.
Green card holders can be deported for committing a felony. Citizens can only be deported if you can prove that they obtained their citizenship fraudulently.
So who thinks a _touchscreen_ is a decent choice for someone visually impaired? Something that relies on hand eye coordination, with no physical feedback?
I know I'm probably going to be proved wrong in a minute by the blind iPad fanbois.

The problem with most of these points is that they assume that zombies follow the normal rules of biology.
News flash: if zombies followed the rules of biology, THEY WOULDN'T BE WALKING AROUND BITING PEOPLE.
