Seems like last night's marathon really hit in on my digestion. I skipped breakfast and at 8 PM I still wasn't hungry, but at that time I ate anyway since that was probably the most healthy thing to do. It's weird.

And this guys, is why even though over seas anime download and stuff is "legal" in the sense of jurisdictation. The U.S is one of the only country's that will ever try to do this it someone.

This whole thing is the definition of WTF

The guy makes software for use outside the US, licenses that software for to companies that operate outside the US and serve customers that live outside the US, but is being charged with a crime in the US? Since when is it illegal for a US citizen to help legitimate European businesses conduct legitimate European business?

Talk about several degrees of separation. A client's client used the software to take bets from customers within the US. And they won't even tell him which client. (Doesn't that violate the whole thing about the right to know what you're being charged with, and the right to face your accuser?) People are using the "go after gun manufacturers" analogy, but it's even worse than that. It's like going after the gun manufacturer for making a gun, legally selling it to a citizen, who legally sells it to a citizen, who has his house robbed of his gun, then the guy who stole the gun uses it in a crime, and it's still the gun manufacturer's fault?!?!

Then they "offer" this guy a chance to plea to lesser crimes that he still didn't even commit in exchange for adding a backdoor to his own software (which, somewhat ironically, would have been a crime in almost every other country that his software was being used in) so they could gather information on European citizens conducting perfectly legal European activities, and they think they have the right to do this because those activities are illegal in the US? Talk about trying to be the world police.....Seriously, as a proud American citizen I do have to say that the US really needs to stop thinking that their laws apply to the rest of the world. They also need to stop taking a machete to the rights of American citizens too, but that's a different story...

There's also the fact that there's a whole list of reasons why online gambling shouldn't be illegal in the first place. But again, that's a different story.

This whole thing makes me sick from top to bottom. The US is strongarming someone who doesn't have the resources to fight back in an effort to spy on both US and European citizens illegally while also trying to enforce their own laws on the rest of the world.

Basically the U.S will extradite you for anything.

BREAKING NEWS FOR AUSTRALIANS!!

 

ABC AUSTRALIA will be showing Puella Madoka !

lolz yeah there is actually a decent amount of anime that airs on random digital channels in Aus.

ABC's also run Cowboy Bebop, Death Note, and I'm sure others. SBS (another channel) ran Evangelion decades ago which is basically what made me a Eva fanboy.

We already have reflective lines in Taiwan. Don't know why they haven't implemented them here yet in Toronto.

Well, for the car/street video. Waste of money. Use that money more effectively. I was going to type a paragraph to explain things, but decided against it. 3 more episodes of Heroic Age :D

I walked out of a classroom at a random time and haiburi was as well. And thus, it was deduced that i had a deadly tracker device
