Technically, his "choice" was to sleep with an adult.

In the same way that when you buy a sack of flour at the grocery store, you did not choose to buy a brick of cocaine.

Purchasing flour is legal, paying for sex is illegal.
Your analogy, much like the rest of your argument, is seriously lacking.

What a Category 6 looks like, it's terrifying.

So microsoft has added a feature that no one wanted in their alpha os, Windows 10.
It re-opens apps after a restart. That porn pop-up dead website or crashed program will still be there upon restart.
There is no place in the gui to turn it off. Thanks Redmond

Well Creston most assuredly never has seen that movie or read mangas where this idea dates back at least 30 years, or read the Hunger games books for that matter...
One thing we can all agree on is that nothing is "new" and it's all a mixture of previous stuff.

NN didn't exist until 2015. Can someone explain to me why the world didn't fall apart in the 20 years preceding 2015 and it will happen now? I just don't get why the sky is falling by going back to pre-2015 models.

Yes, all sorts of bad stuff might happen but why didn't the whole internet fall apart before 2015? Why didn't all of those negatives completely take over the business model of the internet like they are predicted to now (by going back to the pre-2015 model).

Yes, I am oversimplifying but there was no NN pre-2015 and I don't remember everyone's head exploding on a daily basis on this board.
No one can explain this to you. You're a basket case.

Two years from now when his ISP makes him buy a package of websites he can access for $49.99 a month in addition to his regular service fee of $149 for 10/2mbps, in addition to Netflix having to charge him $75 a month to make up for the fees charged to it by Comcast/AT&T/Verizon (THEY'RE RIDING OUR PIPES FOR FREE!)

maybe he'll get it. I mean, probably not, but maybe. After it, it was a whole two years ago that all ISPs were fucking over Netflix to shake money out of them, and all the Ajit Pai asskissers conveniently have forgotten that. Or how about AT&T BLOCKING facetime traffic because they wanted to force people to use AT&T shitty videocomms app? Or blocking payment systems to force people to use their own shitty wallet system? They don't remember any of that.

So yeah, there's no need to worry. The sky won't fall, everything will be fine. Trust the ISPs. Competition will keep them honest, even if 99% of them have no competition anywhere.

I would roll my eyes, but I'd have to do it so hard I'm worried it'd hurt my neck.

snip Hmmm.

After several posts answering your question and a link to a previous very thorough discussion, you still don't get it and prefer to troll. sad

Redeye, I hate to say it but you were right.

I think it's funny how prestigious studios like CD Projekt Red snipe EA with that cunty tweet saying: "We'll leave greed to others" while The Witcher 3 released with 2 $30 DLC content packs.

The whole thing is such a mess.

EA fucked up the implementation, but I still think the overall strategy is a direction that the industry needs to go, ESPECIALLY for multiplayer games. I can't be dealing with segmenting the community 2 months after launch based on who bought the season pass or not.

For all the shitstorm furore that the piss poor progression implementation wrought, people have lost track of the one actually redeeming feature of this model. NO SEASON PASS.

Seriously... have you gone FULL retard, bro? What. the. actual. fuck.

The game having MTs instead of a fucking shitty season pass is like "hey guys we're not serving dog shit this year but instead you'll get a nice cat shit pie ... ya like?".

And YOU fell for it, you flaming idiot.
Thanks for the link. Angry Joes nails it. It's worth listening to him yell.

I guess we tax salt too while we're at it? Didn't work out too well in the past when governments tried it

Regulation, taxation or education? I don't know if taxing sugar is necessary but regulation on the other hand, I am coming around on that. It's hard enough to get DV measurements for it on the side of boxes.

Sugary foods are much more strongly hawked compared to salt. Sugar is also associated with a lot more diseases compared to salt. Restrict sugar first, then assess.
In America we do everything to excess.

1. Serving sizes are too large. CHECK
2. Corn Syrup/Sugar is in EVERYTHING. CHECK
3. Salt/Sodium is also in EVERYTHING. CHECK
4. Fat is added to EVERYTHING. CHECK

While in South Korea for a couple of months on business, I and my fellow expats noticed that to get a bag of salty lays potato chips was next to impossible. The closest ones they had were nowhere near as salty as the same chip in the USA. When asked the response was always the same, American products were too salty.

We need to Ban/Tax/Regulate the following;
Alcohol
Nicotine/Tobacco
Serving Size
Sugar
Salt
Fat
Red Meat

Hell if you regulate enough stuff we might all live to be 75.

Rotten Tomatoes offers both: a fresh/rotten meta calculation of like/didn't like as well as a 10 point scale average. It includes these for both reviewers and audience members.

That's a system that pleases everyone it would seem.

I was pretty sure that the rotten tomatoes point system was based on thumbs up and not a 10 point system, just like Steam. Anyone can confirm?

I tire of this. I wasn't a Hill supporter, but:

1. She won the primary outright, even without super delagates.

2. She won nearly every state where there was a primary in which votes were cast and counted. Bernie won states where the nominee was chose by caucus, wherein the loudest and most enthusiastic (but not necessarily the majority) people decided at town halls.

3. It's not surprising she won given that Bernie joined the party at the last minute.

Facts and logic will never sway an angry clueless white person, but thanks anyway.
Stay Tireless, Resist

Someone will make a trustworthy child's smartwatch. The ones I have seen look like the Dick Tracy wrist phone with facetime. The ability to lockout who you child can receive calls from and make calls to is a big plus. And it is strapped to their wrist making it harder to lose.

The real problem is that these smart watches had a silent call mode which can be used to spy on said child, or home, or family... illegal in Germany. Not just illegal to sell, but illegal to possess!

And yet a smart phone with an app has the exact same functionality.
Those are awkward to strap to a child's wrist.

Why should a Mafia boss R.I.P.?
Why shouldn't he rest in pieces?
R.I.P. has as much meaning as saying gesundheit or god bless you after someone sneezes.
There is no rest after death, nor man-made constructs of heaven or hell, only nothingness.
The living are the only ones who can experience rest and peace.
