There is a reason we are particularly squeamish about handing out legal medicine that works on brain chemistry

I don't think so, bud. Tell your primary physician that you don't feel like yourself and are depressed a lot, and they have ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEM giving you a antidepressant/re-uptake inhibitor. Hell, they even perscribe such to help stop smoking. That is just antidepressants. Make your way to a psychiatrist and there is no end to the antidepressants, mood stabalizers, antipsychotics, benzodiazapines, etc not to mention drugs like depakote that not only treat seizures and mania, but also migraines. Do you like coffee? Do you know how caffeine "works on brain chemistry"? Get your agenda straight here

Is the human eye even capable of perceiving the difference between 1080p and 4k on a desktop/laptop monitor?
Absolutely.

I realise some people are silly enough to output their PC signal to their TVs instead of getting a dedicated box, but surely they are in the minority
Of my world view of people I know in real life and people I know online, a majority do just that

The DRM involved in this is absolutely despicable
Sure it is. But it is probably a necessary caveat in contract negotiation for netflix to be allowed to stream it

This is bullshit and I will tell you why. Most of this crap communicates over port 80. Block port 80 and you block it all. Keep it open and it is just as exploitable as it ever was. You would need something that could inspect the contents of the traffic. However, if it can inspect the contents of the traffic, you have already failed. All communications should be done over an encrypted connection.
