But if Goebbels' heirs don't have an exclusive right to the diaries, then what incentive does Goebbels have to write diaries? We must continue to grant and enforce this monopoly, or else Goebbels' lack of return for his hard work will cause him to give up and get a job as a dishwasher. Is that the kind of world you want to live in?!
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
And why would that be?
Not everyone is wired the same way, and some of the greatest contributors to science did it out of curiosity rather than goodwill.
Personally, I think the H.L. Mencken quote sums it all up rather well.
But we think about IT here. There are also business in the Real World http://www.groundedcoffeeshop.com/ but both of these examples underscore your broader point, if I may radically restate it: economic activity of consequence is a top-down, not a bottom-up affair these days.
BHO owns a substantial chunk of his woes, but it's not an open-and-shut case that we'd've gotten into reform mode in the counterfactual case of a GOP administration.
As far as running the business, just let me sharpen my AWS knives a little more. .
Of course, in our post-capitalistic era, just having a good business plan is necessary but insufficient to protect you from Big Oligarchy and Big Government, assuming you could pry them apart with a crowbar. If you offer a viable alternative, look for "something really, really unfortunate" to arrive with an innocuous name like "Net Neutrality", or something.
I wish I could mod this comment up. There is nothing more joyful than giving your children the opportunities that you never had, and helping them accomplish their own success.
Or do we just expect the vendor to eat the opportunity cost?
Those people are fucking assholes. We all know it, at least anyone who had to deal with those rent-seeking losers. The attendant most likely deserved every iota of the abuse she got in that video.
It's easier to get laid on CL than in the Amazonian jungle...the missionaries have a good reason to go out there.
You can get a buff body with a reasonable workout regimen in less than a year, and many elements of your "looks" can easily be fixed (better hair, wearing contacts, getting teeth fixed, dressing more stylishly).
If you have game, then your dick size doesn't matter, because history is rife with examples of men with questionable looks and stunning women.
Ultimately, having good social skills is much more important than any of those things in getting laid.
I seem to remember a National Geographic issue circa 1980 that was featuring Yanomami.
The last actually isolated tribe that I am aware of was in the New Guinea highlands back in the 30s. The rest have had more or less direct contact with civilization. Do you really think they were never visited by a missionary? Have you ever met one of those people?
