This comes down to me as that old chestnut. A tree full of monkeys where those at the top of the tree look down on a set of smiling faces and the bottom of the tree look up and see nothing but as**holes.
The only difference being that those at the bottom are now supposed to believe that the sh*t that is falling is good for them
Perhaps a "Snowden" would have been a good thing in WWII exposing the nazi supporters such as William Randolph Hearst, Joseph Kennedy (JFK's father), Charles Lindbergh, John Rockefeller, Andrew Mellon (head of Alcoa, banker, and Secretary of Treasury), DuPont, General Motors, Standard Oil (now Exxon), Ford, ITT, Allen Dulles (later head of the CIA), Prescott Bush, National City Bank, General Electric, Bayer Co., General Aniline Works, Agfa Ansco, and Winthrop Chemical Company, to name but a few
Getting public opinion against these could quite likely have shortened the war and saved millions of lives
You are obviously not very familiar with Linux distros. Linux Mint for example does work straight "out of the box", does not require any patching and is an easy way for a windows user to take a first step into the Linux world There are many other distros doing the same.
At the risk of sounding patronising, I am someone who appreciates a quality ale. I have sampled many and heard of many more that I should taste, but Schlafly is one of my more unfortunate experiences. Quite frankly chemically brewed p*ss, is not my beverage of choice. So Phyllis, don't sue so much for the trademark. Sue them for calling their abomination "beer" and attempting to associate you with that
I am a Nigerian Princess residing in the Philadelphia region. I run a website http://aroundmainline.com/ My uncle was unfortunately killed in a car accident and left me a large sum as an inheritance. I am looking for a restaurant that will allow me and four friends to take a meal and drinks in exchange for 1. A good review 2. 30% of the $15000000 legacy of my uncle
Yet again this FISA secret law issue raises it's ugly head. My understanding of the law (and I am no expert) is that it exists to promote a better society and punish those that, by there actions, do damage to others.
How on God's earth can anybody be expected to conform to "secret laws"?
I fully understand. These airsoft weapons are made realistic looking because that is what young boys want. You are the problem for not appreciating this.
The issue you seem to have trouble with is called play, it's a thing that kids do. Give a group of young lads a realistic looking airsoft weapon they will almost certainly declare war upon each other and it takes less than a second for an intelligent adult to realise that these are not real weapons. (no loud bangs m'kay?)
Being somewhat of the "older persuasion" I do actually remember queuing up in the pub to play the original "pong" game.
I graduated from that to "Space Invaders" and then onward via Defender/Galaxians, etc etc to wolfenstein 3D on my Dos 6.2 computer (I fondly remember dosshell). Since then, as technology has advanced, like many other people I have played more and more realistic,violent video games.
While I still enjoy playing "legacy" games such as various versions of Quake/Doom/Halo/Wolfenstein/Call of Duty, I also enjoy playing many of the more recent games like Far Cry/Crysis and such.
Despite many years of being exposed to this virtual violence there has not been a single instance where this has spilled into my RL, I've never shot anybody, punched and kicked them unconscious, or indeed even thought about it.
I've had many attempts at Microsoft's Flight Simulator and the only conclusion I have drawn from that is I cannot fly a plane.
Seriously, computer games are exactly what they say on the tin - a game.
If you cannot differentiate between real life and a computer game then you are either sadly missing some mental faculties, or you are a politician (possibly both)
Surprisingly the RIAA and MAFIAA haven't backed him yet. After all, piracy is costing the industry millions and by their own statistics he is one of the industries dependent upon them, that is now losing money
These "Documents" that are supposedly on David Miranda's computer came from where? Apparently from a Guardian source, or more specifically Ed Snownden. So by inference, the NSA has copies of highly sensitive UK government documents
Before lashing out, shouldn't David Cameron look deeper into the original source of these highly classified documents, if they exist at all?
The idiotic thuggery astounds me.
Take my laptop and smash the hard drive?
I have no sensitive information, but I have multiple backups of my music, videos, programs and documents.
The loss of my laptop hard drive would be inconvenient, but there is nothing there that can't be restored.
