No. The "funny" part will be if he surrenders to the Brits, who hand him over to the USG rather than Sweden. Thus proving the rape allegations were a farce, a mere pretext to get him arrested and extradited to the United States.

Maybe you missed it the first time: there is no US extradition request for Julian Assange.

Your Assange fanfic could be a little more believable. Keep working on it.

Comment Re:Good. Now pardon Snowden. (Score 1) 579

By that standard, we'd need to kill dozens of people based on Snowden's leaks and they were not even fired.

And given Mr. Trumps extreme antagonism for Russia in 2014 but extreme love for Russia by 2015, I suspect he'd end up in front of a firing squad as well.

I think they've got something unforgivable on him. Like video of the violent rape of a teen girl. Something that even a pardon won't really fix.

"Earlier this month, WikiLeaks said it would agree to a US extradition request for the site's founder, Julian Assange, if Obama granted clemency to Manning. It was not immediately clear if WikiLeaks would make good on its promise."

The funny part is that there has been no US extradition request for Julian Assange. So basically, he didn't offer anything. It was just a way to keep his name in the news.

Comment Re:DVD's costing $15-49 is killing DVD sales. (Score 1) 258

There is only value to ownership when you are going to reuse the item.

Otherwise, you are just prepping yourself to be on the next season of "Hoarders".

I stopped buying DVD's when I found I was rewatching less than 1% of what I bought.

As I get older, I rewatch less.

There is a glut of entertainment right now. I can spend 20 hours a week on Youtube (Lindybeige, Primitive Technology, official Music Videos, Stunning things like 10,000 japanese singing "Ode to Joy" in german, the Young Turks) and not even scratch the surface.

Comment They have it backwards (Score 1) 258

Someday long before Netflix was even started (Blockbuster was still big), I realized I was spending $60 a week on DVDs which i would watch once and then go onto the shelves.

For a while, I would wait until they dropped to 5 bucks and buy them then.

I stopped buying that day and have bought 3 DVD's since (one of which- Inception- I thought I would watch a lot but actually I watched it twice).

Netflix didn't stop me from buying DVD's.

I really hate the pricing model for DVD's. As I get older, I rewatch and reread less and less content.
