Comment: And have to register as a sex offender (Score 1) 156

I don't want a cellphone.

Without a mobile phone, how would you go about reaching roadside assistance or emergency services?

Any shitty old mobile with no service plan will work to call 911

Normally I'd recommend a dumb phone, but HalAtWork refuses even this.

As for roadside assistance, just take off your pants and stand in traffic! Someone will stop sooner or later.

Like a police officer ready to stay you for indecent exposure. I would not find permanent sex offender status worth not carrying a phone.

But why (c) 2014? I hope that does not mean that the 75+ year long copyright length restarts from then, does it?

For a work made for hire, the clock starts at the first publication of a particular work. Whether the 2014 is appropriate depends on whether the changes are not substantial enough to form a new work. If the alleged infringer can prove not, then the clock starts from the old copyright date.

Pretty much any independent computer shop will toss together an OS-less machine upon request

I'm aware of independent computer shops that build desktops, but none that build laptops. And the problem with mail-ordering a laptop is the risk of having to deal with a screen and keyboard that look and feel unergonomic.

FORTH IF HONK THEN
