I don't want to be a parent before I am in a place to become one.
I was the same as you -- I wanted to wait until I could afford to be a parent, but guess what? You never can. I wound up realizing that, and was 33 before I became a dad. You think it's hard to get up at 3:00 AM to feed the baby at age 20, try it when you're over 30! I'm 57 and still not a grandparent. If there's one thing about my life I'd change, it would be waiting.

Patronizing an advertiser's competitors isn't always practical because not every market is competitive. For example, if an energy company advertises in such an annoying manner, and that company provides electricity or natural gas to your city, where will you get your energy?

And you know the government spends all the taxes on roads and hospitals!
There's no reason you can't be wearing a costume when you're handing out candy.
Yes, but what's the advantage to the user? I understand that it makes things easier for the developer, but all I see as a user is downsides -- more disk space used, more bandwidth needed to download, more time to load those fat binaries, possibly slower code execution.
What's in it for me?
Disks travel in packs.
