If you exclude all the unpopulated areas of America, you live just as tightly packed as any other developed country. Your legal system is just stupid, and you're too happy with bending over backwards for your big businesses.

I live in a country with 1/4th the population of New York, spread across an area 1/3rd the size of New York. I have 14 mobile phone carriers to choose from. Yes, 14, and that's not counting the ones that've shut down over the years. Looking at the first company on the list, 3, the most expensive contract I can pick is unlimited talking, unlimited texting, unlimited MMS (picture texts, don't know what you call them) and 20GB/month data limit. If you don't need that much data, you can get the same deal with just 5GB for 30$ or 1GB for $20. Population quantity or density makes no difference. Your country is just consumer-unfriendly.

Fucking slashdot ate all my [tags], and I can't edit posts. Why can't I edit posts?

I see you went to [school]. It could be argued that [school] produces bad graduates because we found [statistical anomaly] in [statistical report] from [your graduating year]. Therefore it could be argued that you are a sub-standard and poorly educated hippie, whose only purpose in life it is to hinder hard-working Americans from doing their jobs. Think about it. It could be argued that you're causing thousands of people to not be able to do their jobs. You could literally be taking their jobs. Literally taking them. Literally. Also you have weird sexual fetishes.

If I make a request for a video of my car being pulled over, then that video should be delivered.

If I make a request for a video of someone else being pulled over, then that video should not be delivered, unless

  • 1) I am acting on behalf of said person, with written consent, ie lawyer or friend/family, or
  • 2) a judge signs a document forcing the police to release the video, for example in case of a criminal investigation.

Why does the American situation have to be so damn complicated all the time? God damn political maneuvering is all anyone can do these days. Not my fault, not my problem, go fuck yourself.

Sigmund Freud is alleged to have said that in the last analysis the entire field of psychology may reduce to biological electrochemistry.
