Alternatively, you could tie a string to your ankle to the power cord, when you remove that device from the "socket" the machine will also shut down, and has no risk of hanging processes which would delay the "power off"
"Fuck "fair." "
Exactly! First comes the feeding, then the ethics.
Unfair doesn't have to be unethical. There are several different colleges, some better than others. These also vary by cost. My parents may have helped with the cost of the college where another student's parents did not. This is clearly unfair, but not unethical.
If everything had to be "fair", then wouldn't a countries resources have to be be equally distributed to all people that live there? I couldn't even say citizens of the country, as that would be unfair to the non-citizens that live there. Now, for the rhetorical part of this, doesn't this make it unfair to take more money from one person than another to insure that it's fair for everyone? E.g. professional skills/labor pay more/contribute more than unskilled labor.
