How long before the user base starts to decline precipitously? There's the mom factor. For all the young kids who get a kick out of posting outrageous stuff to Facebook, the fact that their mom is now on facebook is a killer. There’s the “it’s the new email” factor. By that I mean, it’s the new thing that everyone uses to communicate, so I get tons of useless shit, and I mostly ignore it all now. I think you can spot this with Facebook event RSVPs having earlier been more accurate and now being worthless. Anyone else want to chime in?
I haven't heard anything bad about the new Nexus 7. What's the problem?
i don't understand then. Over the weekend i did cyanogenmod w/out google apps, but i have the play store on my phone right now.
I just did that in fact. I'm not sure what I'm missing out on by having not installed Gapps. No Google+?
I bought it because I like Scalzi's writing, it was new at the time, and I was going on vacation. I've read all the Old Man War books except for Zoe's Tale and liked them very much. I also read some of his earlier books like Agent to the Stars which I thought was excellent and Android's Dream which was meh.
The reviews on Amazon made it seem mediocre at best. Really, there was no better science fiction this year?
The math absolutely adds up. Saving something is always better than saving nothing. Why is it that you think if a person's savings can't pay it off completely that their saving anything was a worthless endeavor? Whatever a person saves is less money they need to get from loans. How is that stupid, destructive, harmful. untrue, or unrealistic?
I thought the article said a person could toggle between first and third person. Wasn't that always the case in the Mech games? At least I think I recall that in MechWarrior Mercenaries.
I'm just saying that 6-8 don't describe the general causes of poverty. Not saying that don't occur at all for anyone.
Perhaps the pill. Condoms? No way. They are everywhere.
You're not making a point. Can things occur that deplete savings? Of course. But that isn't an excuse not to save. Not saving at all and then getting an illness just makes everything that much worse.
The laws vary from state to state. I'm pretty sure I had a part time job at 15. Possibly I needed a parent's permission.
Yes, it seems you took 2 minutes to think.
I'm not going to dispute that #5 is a problem. But 6-8 doesn't deal with reality.
To paraphrase Maximus, the things we do in life follow us around and perhaps even echo for all eternity.
When one has very little money as is, the consequences of poor life choices are greatly magnified. Unwed teen mom from a middle class family. That's not an insurmountable obstacle to a successful life. Unwed teen mom from the inner city? Different story.
