So it's just really a matter of power-politics? Had this been a Republican administration and this law was passed, conservatives would be cheering the same decision?

Why is there so much Anti-Net Neutrality news floating around today? I thought net-neutrality was basically to stop 'extortion' and 'bribery' of the Internet -- to prevent tolls, fees, favoritism, etc? What am I missing?
Haven't you been listening to Rush? Net Neutrality is just a play by the Ds to get control of the internet. You'll never be allowed to say a word against them once they have control.

Hmm .. I thought it was more like the road system. For example, you aren't commonly charged a toll because because you drove from one state to another nor are you charged extra because of the type of car or your residence. In the case of transportation, as an example -- it prevents out of state residence from being charged an extra fee just for being out of state and equally prevents states from corroborating special favoritism for being from one state or another because they paid a special tax. The roadway is a neutral transportation network for all to travel from one place to another for fair use and equal opportunity for commerce. Is my comparison flawed or over-simplified?

Are sexually explicit games easily purchasable online there?

They wouldn't have that label / description. They aren't so prudish.

Welcome to America. Our culture has an upside down value system in that regard. Just watch television.

The more I read about GamersGate the more confused I become. Can someone summarize it in an objective and lucid paragraph comprised of ten sentences or less?

With a Steam Button that opens the Steam App automatically and purchases the first thing in your wishlist!

Well indeed, but it should require a random 20 character CAPTCHA to prevent hasty purchases. Thumbsup

Ever been to Legoland? Just don't bring any sharp weapons. Well duh, right? I mean so you don't try to kill yourself from mind-wrecking boredom.

I don't understand why cities use salt when there are perfect alternatives in sand and other vegetal matter.

I only use salt on scrambled eggs or popcorn.

I don't even use it for that. It's warm enough here that I swim in the ocean year round, and get enough salt by accidentally swallowing seawater. Been swimming lately? Devilish

Of course, I dive off 100 feet cliffs, swim with the dolphins, ride on top of whales, and fist-fights sharks.

No problem.

I think it's an easy movie to hate, and yeah Lindelhof has interesting ideas but doesn't wrap things up very nicely from what I've seen. Especially in sci-fi it's easy to get rubbed the wrong way, because it's all so speculative that people forget it's important to ground it in characters. Blade Runner is mostly just Ford walking around gumshoeing and it works really well.

The space movie that shocked me was "Sunshine". It started out great only to become a horror flick toward the end. I was fairly skeptical of the promises of any new space-themed-science-fiction movie thereafter. The other space science fiction movie that was a major disappointment was "Interstellar". I could go on and on about how upsetting the contradictions were in the plot and the lack of believable character development, but I'll refrain.

There are a some good recent ones. Edge of Tomorrow was decent, simple and entertaining. It didn't trigger that 'what the hell ...' feeling - it had a solid plot, consistent characters, etc. Gravity was okay for that amusement park ride feeling but left nothing rememberable for the mind to ponder. I found Oblivion interesting, though somewhat predictable toward the end but acceptable. It seems Tom Cruise knows how to pick a movie that 'doesn't suck'.

Still, for most science fiction, I recommend reading books. Especially from the great masters. Nothing can compare to knowing what goes inside a character's head during a story. Or the philosophical insights that only an author can express (via written words) by standing outside of time and space (of the story itself) to give the reader something to think about and reflect upon.

You are right, Nin. WAY too many people get pets without any thought into what effort will be required to care for the pet.

Dogs are cool, but I have no desire to "clean up" after one of them. Not too mention the issue with them needing to go out when there's snow on the ground and/or its zero degrees out.

Wait a few years. Your perfect dog will be customizable and probably include free shipping. Thumbsup
