Before all this anti-piracy nonsense, I used to buy 5-10 CDs per month and I used to download everything I could get my grubby little internet fingers on. I also had XM radio that I paid something like $10/month for.
Now, I don't download music at all and I certainly don't PAY for it. I canceled XM radio, so now I just listen to free radio and accept the crap that comes to me via that avenue. My joy for music has evaporated. I think I've bought about 3 CDs in the last 5 years.
Actually, it's more like having your car parked in your garage every day, then getting speeding/parking tickets in the mail and not understanding how it's possible given your car never left the garage.
I don't see the resemblance between the two at ALL, but I'm funny that way.
I've had extraordinary face recognition abilities for most of my life. My wife does NOT. We'll be watching a show and she'll say, "Is that the woman from...?" to which I immediately reply (her not having said the name of the show or the name of the person), "NO. That is not her and they look nothing alike." The sad part is that I usually know who she was talking about and also know that the person is a different actor.
The government is like a high school class president that you elected based on popularity and now that they've been elected do crazy things that no one can understand. You know what, I don't wanna finish that analogy, it's too close to the truth....
