Comment Re:and the beer is really good (Score 1) 528

I love pils! Having a slow drawn Bitburger in a Gasthaus is wonderful. Bottled or canned not so good. Bought in USA? I can't drink German beer in America because it dies somewhere along the way. A brown bottled Heinekin bought in NL tastes a lot better than the green bottled stuff wherever you get it...

Yeah, I recently had two domains I was planning on letting expire get auto renewed for 5 years for a total of ~$380. I went to check and they were set for auto renewal (I don't remember requesting that.) When I went to turn auto renewal off it stated that I had to call. It was a big PITA but after 20-30 minutes talking to the nice guy in India (naturally) I had my money back and auto renewal turned off. They're hoping people are unattentive. Not too cool.

Interesting. The text under that graph states: "The bars in this diagram reflect budgeted amounts, which exclude spending for the wars in Iraq & Afghanistan (about $750 billion from 2001-2008), which were funded via supplemental appropriations. Further, it appears that homeland security spending is not entirely included in the budgeted amounts described as defense spending per the budget historical tables; these amounts are spread in other "buckets.""
