i believe it was Abraham Maslow, author of Malsow's Heirarchy of Needs- our needs are predetermined in order of importance i.e. food, clothing, shelter, and your ability to obtain each need is determined by whether you met the need before it.

it's been a lot of years since college...could be wrong.

...Amazing, isn't it? That the feds and corporate America are actually making the case that it's better to physically rob a store rather than simply downloading an mp3? It's unreal....

in beatiful, scenic new hampshire (usa) where i live, if you drive down a road and the police pull you over while you have an open alcohol container in your car, it's a $2,000.000 fine and jail time. however, pulling a flatlander move and throwing it out the window only cost you a $20.00 -> 200.00 fine. the icing on the cake is in new hampshire there is no distinction between the beer you are drinking and the one buried on the floor/in the truck-bed that you drank last week. or picked up off the road as litter. or someone else threw in your truck-bed while you were at the beach

the fact that the guy was sharing official music should net him some jail time. the fact that it was Guns'n'Roses demands that it not be suspended!
