Copyright is seriously out of control and I point the finger squarely at the US for creating this greedy flawed system...
That's fair, because after all we did invent greed and abusing outdated laws.
So? Buy some video games and people will want to play with you again. Or are video games merely the scapegoat here?
Odd, I do touch type and my keyboard is about 2 years old, guess I'm not "people"... (rtard).
While you might have no problem hitting ctrl with your girly hands, us guys with big hands will have to move and twist our wrist in order to get down to ctrl, key, which is a fairly uncomfortable thing to do, and doing it lots of times every hour is going to kill my wrist - having big hands means escape is in a natural position for me while alt and ctrl are far away from my fingers.
Yeah, that's what I came here to say. Guy makes some good points (that, face it, aren't new) but tries way too hard to be funny. That 'voice' was way too annoying.
You know, 1 in 250,000 is of course a very, very, very (very, very) low chance, but... it's still a not insignificant possibility. That's slightly (very, very, very, very, very slightly) scary.

putting legislation online at least five days before it's voted on. That's Congress' (Pelosi and Reid) responsibility, not the President's.
allowing congressmen enough time to read legislation rather than ramming it down their throats at 2am. That's Congress' (Pelosi and Reid) responsibility, not the President's.
And ending backroom politics. That's Congress' (Pelosi and Reid) responsibility, not the President's.
get rid of the lobbyists That's Congress' (Pelosi and Reid) responsibility, not the President's.
midnight bills, etc That's Congress' (Pelosi and Reid) responsibility, not the President's.
I've seen some pretty amazing engineering coming out of our NZ neighbors. They remind me of the Swiss more than anyone else.
Quite. A lot of small countries gave birth to wondrous inventions.
1970s Spreadable Butter - New Zealand Dairy Research Institute
After years of development, the New Zealand Dairy Research Institute released the worlds first spreadable butter in 1991, which was then made by New Zealand dairy co-operatives and now by Fonterra.

("The world's first referee to use a whistle to stop a game of sport." um, ok.)
No amount of careful planning will ever replace dumb luck.
