Comment Re:NVIDIA (Score 1) 353

I haven't seen any Nvidia driver install adds with mine as well. However I did just start seeing One-drive upgrade adds in my File Explorer... which I immediately disabled. Under the File/directory options checkboxes, there's one there for Sync service notifications.

But that was the only place I've seen them to date.

Comment So freaking what? (Score 1) 271

Streaming Services are by definition a Service. Other Services in the state are taxed at 6%. Streaming services can be considered a Luxury item, nobody needs netflix to live. You won't die without it.

the Vaping taxes are essentially the same thing. You don't need to vape. It has health issues just like regular smoking. Kids pick it up as being "cool". Tax it like cigarettes..boom done. I can think of about 5 Vape stores in my town, why on God's green earth do we need 5 in small town? Survival of the fittest, some will close.. I'm sorry. oh well.

Do I like taxes...no. But Wolf also got passed a decent Education budget, finally after years of crap from Rendell and Corbett. So if you are going to tax me 6% for netflix and Amazon Prime, oh well. Maybe my kids will get a better computer system in their school. Or maybe their teachers will get a better contract and be more engaged in the class room .

State taxes don't necessarily suck 100% of the time. there are real benefits that can happen. People need to get their heads out of their asses and realize we all need to work together as a community to keep things from going to total shit. Taxes are one of the ways we are able to do this. /end rant.

Comment This isn't a victory for Behring-Breivik. (Score 3, Insightful) 491

Someone once pointed out that hoping a rapist gets raped in prison isn't a victory for his victim(s), because it somehow gives him what he had coming to him, but it's actually a victory for rape and violence. I wish I could remember who said that, because they are right. The score doesn't go Rapist: 1 World: 1. It goes Rape: 2.

What this man did is unspeakable, and he absolutely deserves to spend the rest of his life in prison. If he needs to be kept away from other prisoners as a safety issue, there are ways to do that without keeping him in solitary confinement, which has been shown conclusively to be profoundly cruel and harmful.

Putting him in solitary confinement, as a punitive measure, is not a victory for the good people in the world. It's a victory for inhumane treatment of human beings. This ruling is, in my opinion, very good and very strong for human rights, *precisely* because it was brought by such a despicable and horrible person. It affirms that all of us have basic human rights, even the absolute worst of us on this planet.
