Comment Re:So what? (Score 1, Insightful) 107

It doesn't matter who's doing the hacking? Are you that myopic that you take any excuse to crowbar in your anti-Hillary rants? Of course it matters. And thanks for trying to take a Slashdot post about Russian hackers and turning it into yet another "Clinton vs. Trump" debate, which will probably work. You dick.

Seems doubtful. Aren't most of the files anyone cares about first being uploaded to newsgroups? After that, anyone can grab a movie and try to be the first to put it on TPB. Catching that guy isn't going to get you anywhere.

If you think TPB is a honeypot, I've got a few questions about 9/11 and jet contrails that I need to ask you. You know, before I politely excuse myself and find a normal person to talk to.

In the United States, the first 10 million dollars inherited is tax-free. And that's per child.

After that, yeah, the money starts getting taxed. If it doesn't, that money that funds stuff you like (like interstates, military defense, whatever) has to come from somewhere else. Who ends up paying the difference? People that actually worked for the money.

So yeah, I think an inheritance tax is a fair thing. In fact, with the first $10 million tax free, it's really really fair right now.

Comment Re:The Theater Experience (Score 1) 331

I was making the point that bringing up any topic about movie theaters to the Slashdot crowd is automatically going to elicit the same laundry list of old-people complaints (many of which I agree with) that misses the point; that is, no one cares about our complaints because we aren't numerous enough to matter, made obvious by the millions of teens and 20-somethings that continue to buy tickets. This topic's comments are predictable sound and fury, signifying nothing.

I didn't say the current experience is good. I myself only go to a theater on a weekday at 4:45pm, or close to it, to ensure there's as few people as possible in the theater with me. It usually works out pretty well.
