Comment Re:This simply means we're succeeding. (Score 1) 215

That is exactly how I intended it to work. >:-)

And exactly my current attitude. I've conserved quite a bit for my life, it makes sense to do so since energy costs money and a penny saved is a penny earned. If this is such a dire emergency- then it's time for those gulfstream liberals to stop flying.

More like- if the drought is real, then no bathing should be justified under any circumstances. Bathing can only be justified if the drought is false (that is, if we have the water necessary to bathe).

In other words, more a matter of conservation in time of emergency. If the emergency does not exist, then continue as normal.

Comment Plagiarism lawsuits (Score 1) 209

those same idiots will be suing everyone who simply listens and remembers a piece of new music

They're already doing that and calling it "plagiarism lawsuits". See Bright Tunes Music v. Harrisongs Music ("My Sweet Lord"), Three Boys Music v. Michael Bolton ("Love Is a Wonderful Thing"), Gaye v. Thicke ("Blurred Lines"), Wolfe v. Led Zeppelin ("Stairway to Heaven"), and Ed Sheeran getting sued twice. This is not to mention other cases that you don't hear so much about because they're settled out of court: "Stay With Me" by Sam Smith is too close to "I Won't Back Down" by Tom Petty

Comment iTunes runs only on non-free DRM'd OSes (Score 1) 209

Even if iTunes purchases don't have DRM, one still has to install DRM to use it. Last time I checked, the iTunes client application was available only for macOS (hardware locked with "Don't Steal Mac OS X.kext"), Windows (Genuine Advantage anyone), and iOS. Or since when was iTunes made available for an operating system that doesn't itself require DRM?
