If you think Harry Potter didn't make much profits, then you clearly have not even tried to look at the data. At all. Just, wow.

That series has profited $6.5 Billion. Profited. Not grossed. Net.
And that is just from box office sales. Video releases and merchandising profited another $25 Billion. Profit. Not gross. Net.

My Presidential vote history:
Reagan, Bush, Perot, Dole, Bush, Kerry, Obama, Obama, (Sanders) well, fine. Clinton. Since I have no choice. Dammit. At least its not Trump.

Your affiliation may change as you learn more. Which way it goes depends on how you feel about what you learned. Conservatives used to be about being fiscal conservatives and small government, hands off on the rest. Now they are about social conservative and HUGE government. They say small government, but their vote history is always HUUUUUUGE military and corporate control and the rest gutted to make the military even more HUUUUGE and corporate control more profitable. Fuck that, I am no fascist. Time to reign this runaway horse back toward the middle, and maybe a little left of there.

No, but you can set your encryption to scramble the key if there are (X) false attempts. Or even to scramble if a certain password is entered instead of the real one. And, if you used reasonably secure encryption, once that is done, its toast. I cannot ever be decrypted with today's technology. And likely can never be decrypted, ever.

judge won't like it. Prosecution won't like it. But it is easy to prove that this is a fact.
