You make a good point, the resulting lawsuits and settlements from the 11 death comes to a billion alone. By the end of this there will not be a BP, I hope we will have a better appreciation for sustainable development.
That's why we need fearless environmental engineers who are not afraid to do a little social engineering to correct the situation. Those with lots of money and power should fear their collapse. Those with nothing have nothing to lose, true willpower.
I agree, no commercials and it might be worth it. I think most pirates would agree that commercials are obnoxious and unwanted and they will not pay more to be rid of them. People just want freedom, commercial television, DRM, etc, are prison for media.
["...there is far less nationalistic or religious conflict on the Earth today and the percentages of death related to that have dropped drastically since World War II."]

You ignore the simple possibility that extraterrestrial life might be nothing like a hominid-like species, for all we know they could be sentient insect-like creatures, and could be very hostile.
Lensing is known to happen with black holes and other massive bodies how does this map distinguish dark matter from other sources of lensing? By stating Dark matter has no interaction with electromagnetic radiation clearly contradicts the support that it also bends light. Unless "interaction" has a separate astrophysical meaning which is unfamiliar to me. I don't see how this gets us any closer to understanding the nature of dark matter/energy.
Apart from that, think of the costs. Our government can't afford to do anything that absurd, ooh wait...
I think Yale should DNA profile all Law student applications to make sure no one with the similar DNA mutation gets accepted.
I would not be surprised, after all a big name release on a new platform is exactly the kind of business they want to be in, to bad for the die hard fans.
On that note, can we expect Ep3 to be coming soon?
