MIB3? Fucking hell, one of the star actors didn't even turn up for the film.

um. from http://www.imdb.com/title/tt14...

Why isn't Rip Torn in the film?
Rip Torn isn't in the movie, because he was arrested after breaking into a closed Litchfield Bancorp branch office in Lakeville, Connecticut, where Torn maintains a residence. He was charged with carrying a firearm without a permit, carrying a firearm while intoxicated, first-degree burglary, second-degree criminal trespassing and third-degree criminal mischief. The Connecticut State Police said that Torn broke into the bank thinking it was his home.... On December 14, 2010, Torn pled guilty to a litany of charges: reckless endangerment, criminal trespass, criminal mischief and the illegal carrying of a firearm and was given a two-and-a-half-year suspended jail sentence and three years probation.

"Piracy is estimated to cost content owners billions of dollars annually. "These costs are typically passed along to the consuming public in terms of increased costs for legitimate purchased works and higher charges for increased deterrents to the piracy,""

did anyone else read this as "we think we should be making more money than we are, so we will blame pirating and charge more for our stuff".

because this game is driven by word of mouth once it's past the first initial sales to the hardcore, and if out of the gate everyone is cheating it WILL hurt sales.

compared to other games where once it is popular there are a number of third party cheats.. this game had a cheat written and out for sale publicly within a week of the game being released.

i would go to the door and stand outside it. are you not a parent? you ask questions like someone who has never raised kids. (not an insult, just an observation). most stores have a family room now where you can be in the room regardless of gender.

maybe the thing here isn't vilifying it's being able to tell who is different easily. before you wouldn't know who is a pervert, but now transgendered people stand out like a sore thumb?

alter (something) from its original course, meaning, or state to a distortion or corruption of what was first intended.
"he was charged with conspiring to pervert the course of justice"
synonyms: distort, corrupt, subvert, twist, bend, abuse, misapply, misuse, misrepresent, misinterpret, falsify
"people who attempt to pervert the rules"
a person whose sexual behavior is regarded as abnormal and unacceptable.

transgendered people are altering something from it's original intention. their sexual behavoir is also considered abnormal and unacceptable (although that seems to be changing).

Ok, troll, I'll bite.

So where are these "sex predators" and "perverts" going to the bathroom now? Assuming they look like a man, they are probably in the boys bathroom. With your son. Why has that not been a problem? Are you standing in the bathroom making sure some "pervert" isn't doing anything? What about when your wife is out with him? Does she go into the bathroom with him too?

I would definitely go into a bathroom with my young son to prevent anything like that happening, how do you think child abductions happen?

Same with my wife.

I'm pretty sure all parents are over protective with their kids whether it is warranted or not.

Dear God you're an idiot. Gender identity has jack shit to do with sexual preference; and yes, as a result a significant number of men who become women still prefer women. See Kate Jenner's most recent documented exploits for an example

these exploits?


Comment Re:If an ISP can't "build for that" (Score 1) 180

"If an ISP lacks the finances at the moment to "build for that" throughout its service area, how else should it reduce peak load?"

So because an ISP has declined to update their networks over the last 10 years but continued to sell the service to more and more subscribers, it is now not their fault because they can't immediately pay for the bandwidth upgrades they need? bullshit. they should be fined continuously until their network is upgraded.. if hat means no profit for the next 3 years TFB. then the C-lvel execs will be fired for incompetence, which is exactly what should happen.

the bullies are the ones punching people for expressing their opinion. you just expressed a willingness to intimidate another person with violent force for expressing themselves.. and then you called them a bully.
