Comment You people here just don't get it... (Score 1) 406

Newt isn't doing this little piece of performance art for himself of for you, he's doing it for the people in our society that are too pig ignorant to comprehend why his statements are idiotic. The people that basically have a say on how everything's run, and are determined to fuck us all over. Because that's how our system here in the USA really works.

"Nevada as big as the UK? Hello? In what regard? Length and Width? How is that relevant for a rail grid when Nevada has what? 5million or 10million inhabitants? 75% living in Las Vegas? Where would the damn rails in Nevada go to? Into the desert? Why don't you compare Alaska with the UK? Would probably make more sense."

If you're too stupid to understand that, you're too stupid to be commenting. What are you, 12 years old ?

What nation has a nation wide grid for it's trains that is anywhere near the size of the US ?

Noob mistake right there that Europeans always make, assuming stuff that scales ok for their tiny little counties is gonna scale well for a HUGE continent.

The state of Nevada for instance is larger than the entire UK.

a series of half truths and lies that only the most ardent idiot apple fanboys would for a second buy.

The real reason - we want to soak you for the cost of more expensive and more complex and more prone to breaking and wearing out types of headsets, and we want to be the ones to sell them and the replacements for them.

Wouldn't really be that difficult to have a blow-up diagram of the product on-line to consult. If a product is simply not user-end repairable then your questions and accusation about this legislation is irrelevant.

What exactly are you objecting to ?

The manufacturers that wish for an advantage would make their products more repairable, more modular, more INTELLIGENT. You'd still be free to buy cheap shit products designed to become quickly obsolete, and people with the intelligence and curiosity to repair their own stuff would actually have a chance to do so.

Instead of this insane race to the bottom this country is on.
