Comment No possibility to remove internet? BULLSHIT! (Score 1) 337

Have you ever looked inside of an xbox 360 slim? The Wi-Fi "internet apparatus" is just connected via an internal USB port NOT built into the motherboard or anything. I've taken mine out on occasion, and the 360 works just fine without it. The Xbox 360 is rendered incapable of using Internet without plugging into a wired ethernet connection, which I doubt they would give prisoners access to and could easily be gummed up with epoxy anyway. With no Wi-Fi or ethernet, how the hell can it access the Internet? If it can't access the Internet, then he should be able to play the video game console, just like the pre-Internet consoles other inmates have enjoyed. Then again, the link is to a Google translated document. To summarize: 1) Take apart the slim 2) Remove the usb card 3)

Incidentally, condoms work so well at preventing HIV from spreading that if everyone used them, the propagation rate of HIV would likely be dropped below a sustainable level, and AIDS would disappear. In Nevada brothels that use condoms, HIV rates are quite low.

I would agree with this statement. If everybody used condoms, then I could say the same thing about the propagation of pregnancy rates. If everybody used them, humans would likely be dropped below a sustainable level, and would disappear!
