You have no idea about what you're talking about. I live in Tokyo. Here hundreds of thousands take their bicycles everyday to go just about everywhere. If what you say was true, then thousands would die every year from bike accidents because wearing helmets is completely voluntary.

Guess what? That isn't happening. People aren't dying left and right.

I can't speak for others, but I can tell you that *I* wouldn't ride my bike as often if I had to carry an annoying helmet with me every time I went somewhere.

Comment Re:Transforming DD into HD (Score 2) 204

I remember doing the opposite. In the late 90s I was still using 8-bit computers from the 80s as a hobby (MSX, relatively popular everywhere but the U.S.). Because the communications software was limited, we used to download software from local BBSs via our PCs, and then copy into floppy disks to use on the MSX.

The problem was that the PC didn't accept that I was trying to format 2HD disks in 2DD format, so in my MSX disks I always covered the little hole. This was either under MS-DOS 6.22 or OS\2 Warp (I didn't really use Windows much even back then).

Excuse me, but I have been following this thread and I can't miss the fact that you're ignoring all the proofs and arguments that people more informed than you are providing.

I'm trying to find the button to mark you as a retard so I don't have to read your nonsense again, but apparently it's not there anymore. Where's the option to ignore your posts?

...few shots later, police comes in and shoots the camera-head guy; blood is splashed on the screen.

That is not true. Yes, the annoying camerahead guy appears on the screen doing silly mime-like gestures, then there come the police sirens and flashlights, but you can't actually see any police, and of course no shooting or blood are involved.

Please don't repeat like a parrot everything you hear.
