Did you happen to know that Pharma spends more for advertising in the US than R&D?
How about we get like almost every other country in the world, and ban prescription drug advertising, that would cut down on their costs dramatically, and make drugs cheaper for everyone.
Sorry, that's wrong, in most states, if you refuse to blow at the scene, you lose your license right then and there, and can be convicted of DUI for refusal to blow. It's a nasty thing that has come about since the Supreme Court decided there's a DUI exception to the Constitution.
Now just wait for the local Telco and Cableco to sue your hometown for doing that. While your town is getting sued, they will start building out their own network while the town is having to fight in court and not be able to do any work.
(e.g. ask a person if they can sense which way is down)
I know that one! The enemy's gate is down!
Well, I don't know of any legal online movie viewing services that has CC included.
You mean, $8-10 per month, not per disc you rent, for rentals from Netflix and BlockBuster, and with the way the queues work, if you find it sucks at the first disc, you can just remove the rest of the series from the queue right then, and move something else up in the queue to watch. Also with the watch it now for some of the stuff, you don't even need to wait for the discs to arrive in the mail.
If you were to spend the money you're wasting on bad DVD purchases on subscriptions to Netflix and BlockBuster, you'd end up saving money becuase you'd end up buying fewer bad shows.
As a result I feel it's necessary to "test drive" media before purchase. With CDs I can get legal samples online, but with TV shows on DVD there is no method except to download it and see if it's any good. It's illegal, but I do it because I don't want to get stuck wasting thousands of dollars on trash.
I know not everything would be on all the options listed, so there's up to 8 other options, unless you don't have any friends, then there's only up to 7 options.
So don't say the only option you have is to download.
