Comment Re:Religion is much worse (Score 2) 345

Because religion is already intertwined with law/politics. Just like how tobacco, alcohol or caffeine are legal substances. If you want something to be legal nowadays you need to already have it established. Imagine if 50 Shades of Grey was written instead of the bible, porn would be what influenced law/politics and religion would be frowned upon.

Comment UK e-petitions (Score 1) 286

Now, there is one for stopping the censorship of porn and there is one for blocking porn. But I liked this one even more. --- "None of the above" on ballot papers.

Hello porn, goodbye politicians (shut up, don't ruin my dream, it's the British dream, we have ours, you have yours).

Comment What is the point of getting "super-fast"? (Score 1) 128

If the ISPs will continue to limit how much you can download each month as if there is a limited supply of "internets". ISPs in the UK (no idea what it is like across the pond) seem to follow the same business model that the movie/music industry does and until that changes, I don't see a valid reason for this and I live in one of those areas considered "rural England". Many people I know don't need 'super-fast' and don't care for it. In fact most just care how much it costs and when ISPs start offering "super-fast broadband" they will also start offering super-high prices. The entire way internet services is sold in the UK is dodgy as hell (again, no idea what it is like across the pond). Each provider tries to sell you their own internet and tell you it is better then the rest. They are still selling WiFi as part of their packages as if it is a rare commodity that no-one else provides or is able to get and make it sound as if it is something exclusive to "their internet".

The video in the Summery is fake. WipeOut 2048 will launch on PS Vita sometime next month and the Wipeout youtube video also has "(C) Copyright!
