my comcast account has a 300gb cap, but i was given 3 grace months to go over without charge, i've only gone over once. i usually use 70-150gb and usually get 28mbps on a 20mbps plan, i'm fairly happy with them

I don't let people come into my house and say whatever they want either, my web server is an extension of my house, albeit one I allow more open access to, it's still my private property however, and I reserve all my rights. Anyone using my server is a guest who's there because I haven't revoked access, which I can do for any or no reason.

glass is a very worrying invention. no expectation of privacy in public is very different then lots of people being able to record everything they see. wait 'til a bunch of peeping tom videos start appearing, or people taking videos of kids on the beach, or until someone with glass gets shot because a dealer thinks they might have recorded that drug deal. the surveillance we have now, we can at least vaguely hope no one is using it for fap material, or won't put it out to embarrass us. does your nose itch? better not scratch it, there's three people with google glass over there and you'd hate for them to record it and put it up on youtube looking like you're picking your nose. is there even a light showing people that its recording? laptops sometimes have those, that'd be something at least

United States Begins Flying Stealth Bombers Over South Korea 567

skade88 writes "The New York Times is reporting that the United States has started flying B-2 stealth bomber runs over South Korea as a show of force to North Korea. The bombers flew 6,500 miles to bomb a South Korean island with mock explosives. Earlier this month the U.S. Military ran mock B-52 bombing runs over the same South Korean island. The U.S. military says it shows that it can execute precision bombing runs at will with little notice needed. The U.S. also reaffirmed their commitment to protecting its allies in the region. The North Koreans have been making threats to turn South Korea into a sea of fire. North Korea has also made threats claiming they will nuke the United States' mainland."

My IQ is higher then 125 and I get by without insulting people. I don't at all identify with an uneducated backwoods hick, you were replying directly to me with name calling. Go ahead and keep attacking others if thats what it takes for you to feel ok. Hope everything works out for the best and you're not too disappointed when you die and America is still using both the Imperial and Metric systems, dollar bills, oh and the middle endian dating system to boot. Systems preference is exactly that, a preference, and to get all bent out of shape and attack people over it is a sad thing.

Wow, personal attack in the first sentence, classy there. Sure metric is used in a lot of places, and thats fine, we even signed the Treaty of the Metre. Doesn't matter, and your whining, bullying, and attacking of people won't change anything. You can call people names and be condescending as much as you want, the street signs won't change, the gas pumps won't change, people will keep measuring their weight in pounds, etc. I do have some good news though, you can walk your offensive, snooty ass down to the liquor store and buy a 750ml bottle of booze to help you cope with what must be the horrible pain of living among such inferior people.
