Also there's a big difference between what people say will do and what they will actually do.

As Brexit showed us, Westerners have grown very comfortable (and now even enjoy in Durdenesque way) lying to pollsters.

This is why the specter of Trump still worries me; he's not behind enough.

Sometimes you get the bonus of drunk or stoned concert goers and of course the numerous inconsiderate a-holes or thugs that too often seem to attend.


My first concert in decades (and probably the last ever) was pretty nice except at the beginning because of the 50-something woman a row behind us who wanted everyone to get up and dance. At a Steely Dan concert.


More Unblocking Companies Give Up Their Fight Against Netflix ( 213

Earlier this year, Netflix announced it was going to block the VPN services that were circumventing the streaming service's geoblocking technology, and it seems in the months since many of the top VPN players have given up on finding ways to workaround Netflix's block tech. From a report on TechSpot (condensed): Australian company uFlix discovered that some of its users could no longer access Netflix. It said that a fix was coming soon, but, uFlix announced recently in a recent blog post that it has given up the fight. "As of today we are going to stop supporting Netflix as an unblocked channel. Unfortunately every time we set up a new network or find a workaround it is getting blocked within hours." Uflix isn't the only service to throw in the towel -- most of the other unblockers have quietly decided to stop trying to evade Netflix's geoblocks, as more customers complain they can no longer watch the streaming site. Popular VPN TorGuard had assured customers that the crackdown wouldn't affect them. But there is no mention of Netflix on TorGuard's website, and its shared Netflix server was taken offline four months ago.
