Speedpasses are free, they come with admission (facepalm) everyone gets them

That's of course just a lousy excuse for genocide, but if you take censorship as an example then it can be good. For example a large political scandal, if resolved internally, is easily handled, but if the press finds out then there'll suddenly be riots and national pressure. If censorship will stop people from finding out about an issue that can be handled easily, the net result is much better than if people did find out.

Nazi and Japanese experimentations are often like this. I do believe that since it was already done, the people that did it should suffer the full extent of the law HOWEVER their data MUST not be destroyed. It must be utilized so yes, it is better.

This is one reason why Chinese censorship works quite well AND why they haven't stopped doing it.

 

HOWEVER a slightly more ideal way of that is what is featured in GITS-SAC where the news can be censored for an amount of time by law so that this stuff could be resolved before going public. The PRC has not reached this point yet as a big portion of its area is still farming and poor people.

The Disney Land in Paris recently had to pay a huge fine because the spied after their employees and the people who were applying for a job there. They used private investigators to find out EVERYTHING about them.

Just ordered all the parts for my new CPU cooler.
Actually not rally looking forward to built this thing in :D

I'm not ready to drop $650+ on a Stax rig yet and I'm quite fine with my current audio gear.

Because I'm not a musician.

Many of the stuff you mentioned there are still considered music.

Don't be trashing people's work just because you don't think much of them.

 

And it's hard to sound as much of a jerk as you did now.

As we have a no tolerance policy, this could happen again. so instead of focusing on OTHER areas of WHY this happened. Let's just ban forks outright and call it a day as the masses are stupid and even though we know this is stupid as well. We can't get votes for it otherwise. 

Foods give you cancer. Let's ban food from the world.

Then finally the world will be a better place.

 

Seriously, no. Just no.

Which makes them even more dangerous, you trigger happy kids!

(though I can agree to the fun in it--even though I've only shot BB pellets lol)

Lol!!!

Caught up with all the posts; some interesting stuff but again I'm too busy to reply to all the good posts...

At Disney land right now about to walk back to our hotel. Spent 5 hours going on 4 rides and 4 souvenirs...
Which 4?

My top 4 (in order) are:
  1. Space Mountain
  2. Matterhorn
  3. Splash Mountain
  4. Pirates of the Caribbean

Ah, and a nice refreshing bread bowl soup after the Pirates of the Caribbean ride always calms the soul. :3

Speaking of Splash Mountain... (facepalm)

Haha, we went to space mountain, cars the ride, and a couple other random rides that weren't all that impressive.
Space mountain was fun though. Check Facebook to see the picture of our faces. My advisor's expression is the best XD
