I shed a tear for all those who support any patent system and believe in such a system.
This sort of behavior should really help the world out in these times of recession/depression
Im so pleased i stoped using microsoft products about 8 years ago as microsoft behaves like a child sociopath most to all of the time like a troubled brother you never wanted as he has caused nothing but shame to the family.

Profile of a Sociopath

* Glibness and Superficial Charm

* Manipulative and Conning

* Grandiose Sense of Self Feels entitled to certain things as "their right."

* Pathological Lying Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis.

* Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities.

* Shallow Emotions When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive.

* Incapacity for Love

* Need for Stimulation Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.

* Callousness/Lack of Empathy Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others

* Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.

* Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet "gets by" by conning others. Problems in making and keeping friends.

* Irresponsibility/Unreliability Not concerned about wrecking others' lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.

* Promiscuous Behavior/Infidelity Promiscuity, acting out of all sorts.

* Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.

* Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution.

It not really a police state, more like an open prison where the police have more power than the citizens they are suppose to serve.

The police can carry guns, citizens cannot.
The police can break the laws of road safety, speeding, over taking.
The police can kill people without being prosecuted.
The police can stop and search you but you cannot stop and search them, i have meet some seriously dodgy police officers but you try getting them prosecuted

The government is full of idiots with a self serving agenda, thay are not accountable, and are ruled by the house of lords in other words you common vote counts for shit, at the last election more people did not vote than actually vote for are current government and nobody voted the "one eyed Scottish idiot" as prime minister.

Welcome to are open prison, and you really want to move here ffs.

You really want to bring you children up in a prison as you are living in one ruled by a bunch of idiots so what does this make us, England will not revolt as we are like the Americans idiots a bunch of spineless whelps that only care about feeding are addictions.

I feel sorry for the children aka "Emotional Void fillers" that are being dragged up into this mess, really can anyone consider them self a good parent if they are willing to bring a child into the mess of a world.

Never mind there is not going to be any work for you or your class once the global economy falls to it knees and we all have to hunt for are own food killing each other for rotten meat. You might as well burn the school/university down as there not much use for these moronic institutions anymore as they are full of "teachers aka idiots living in an dream world" that has no relation to the real world, other than bullying as this pattern is very popular in business practices by competent and incompetent people. Stop taking eduction so seriously as it is generally useless and full of people who could not step one foot in the private sector without having a breakdown.
