    I'm not too worried about the safety aspects because I think my precautions are adequate; we don't have kids in the home, we keep the guns and ammo in separate places, we keep the gun under multiple locks. Everyone in the home knows at least basic gun safety and has been shooting for several years. And the biggest thing is that I don't own the kind of guns you could really even use indoors (I have a long barrel shotgun and plan to buy a long rifle next).

    Home defense for me is out. I just like to shoot at the range.

    When an item would drop, the people in the party could do one of three things:

    1. Pass - you give up rights to the item.

    2. Roll "need" - you roll a d100 and get a number. That number is compared vs. the numbers from the other players that also rolled "need." High roll wins the item.

    3. Roll "greed" - same deal as need, however, greed roll only happens if nobody "needs" the item. Common in situations where, for example, your group kill a boss who drops a wand, and you don't have anyone in the party that can use wands.

    So the idiot was suggesting that Blizzard reimburse him in real-world money because he lost the roll to loot a bow or gun.

    How the fuck can you say non-elitist and at the same time disregard anyone who hasn't read these books as uneducated. Reading The Count of Monte Cristo has nothing to do with being educated. I imagine a Babylonian saying to his contemporaries: anyone who does not read these parchments shouldn't consider him(her)self educated. Then the tablets burned. Congratulations, you're not educated.

    Sorry for the rant, downmod if necessary, I just hate self-righteous "humanities" folk who think knowing unique conjugations of verbs is the secret to enlightenment.

    edit: reading is a good past time and can open the eyes. Most of these books are worth reading. But, that's a very different thing than indespensibility.

    So even though you are an executive at this cookie company... you are still an employee and make some wage (salary). This is now you individual income from which you can donate however much or little you want.

    The cookie company should NEVER be allowed to cut a check to Planned Parenthood... only an INDIVIDUAL can do this. So the line is drawn before you even start. I am not sure you are arguing against this, but it seems that the line is very clear.

    Non-profits, government run agencies, etc... should NEVER be allowed to receive funds from the coorperations bank account. Sure there are loopholes that could get the money out of the company and into the non-profit, but it still requires that individuals and only individuals be able to give to non-profits (who have a political stake).

    The time doesn't expire when the TV clock shows 45/90 minutes. What matters is the ref's watch which gets stopped at intervals at his descretion (usually for injuries, hence the extra time past the 45/90 minutes is called "injury time").

    Since the TV crew doesn't know when the ref has his watch stopped they just keep theirs running instead of guessing. And the 4th official (i think it's 4th) comes out at the end of 45/90 minutes and shows how many extra minutes of injury time will be played.

    With a sonnet.

    > Babe, how long is it that we've been dating?

    > It's got to be a good three years by now.

    > And isn't that a cause for celebrating?

    > (Please, wipe those lines of worry from your brow.)

    > I've brought champagne, and something's in the oven,

    > Though you won't have noticed it quite yet.

    > And baby, I am ready for some lovin' --

    > Forget the condoms, did I? Well, no sweat.

    > Look at us: we make the perfect couple,

    > Don't we, baby? (*Baby*? I mean *honey*.)

    > I'm so sexy, spirited and supple,

    > And you're a guy with quite a lot of money.

    > Well, what's that aphorism about beggars?

    > Babe, I've chosen you, and now I'm preggers.

    >The reason why the primary reading on British postmodernism fictions modules is so old, in relative terms, is that it has not been rejuvenated. Just look out into the cultural market-place: buy novels published in the last five years, watch a twenty-first century film, listen to the latest music – above all just sit and watch television for a week – and you will hardly catch a glimpse of postmodernism.

    Bullshit.

    While, I'll agree that the postmodern fiction and culture he lists is older, i.e., from the sixties and seventies, it's simply untrue that that culture hasn't rejuvenated itself. Sure, it's not "high postmodernism," it might not even be post- postmodernism, but the idea that we've lost the frequently ironic, often absurd, and densely literate novels and shows Kirby laments is simply untrue.

    The best case for rejuvenation is David Foster Wallace, who basically saw the Pynchon-DeLillo-Gaddis set as a starting point rather than a dead-end. From him we got the monumental *Infinite Jest,* which I'm certain would show up on those English department modules if it weren't so daunting and huge. Wallace also has a much more intelligent and nuanced version of Kirby's essay (on the relationship between literature and television/consumer culture) called "E Unibus Pluram: Television and U.S. Fiction."

    Other writers in this vein off the top of my head: George Saunders, Donald Antrim, Jonathan Lethem, Haruki Murakami, Zadie Smith, Kelly Link, Jeffrey Eugenides, David Mitchell, Jonathan Franzen, Lydia Davis, Ben Marcus, Brian Evenson, Gary Lutz, Denis Johnson, etc. etc. There's also older writers who came to prominence post-70s (or who simply began to write at that point): W.G. Sebald, Roberto Bolano. And I'm not even getting to science fiction where there are plenty of genre writers who have more than picked up where Dick and Gibson left off (of course, Gibson is still writing -- just like Pynchon and DeLillo -- which is another problem with Kirby's essay).

    Kirby also neglects to mention that television is hardly the wasteland he makes it out to be. If *The Sopranos* and *Mad Men* aren't basically doing some version of high modernism (forget the post-) I don't know what is. Likewise, *The Wire* -- although swap out high modernism for realism.

    Yes, Kirby's right that there's more reality shows and interactive, Web 2.0 stuff. But he's wrong insofar as he thinks everybody forgot about fiction for facebook.

    Here is the thing... about Art (photography included). Everyone says "oh this is good" or "this is bad", but it's all subjective bullshit. It's not math, you can't say "this is right or this is wrong". This is why I hate art (well artists at least) is this pretentious bullshit of "oh this is good".

    No, no it's not good. Is good to YOU; but that is subjective. You can't be the judge. The judge is how the person viewing it reacts. If you're that person, you have a say. **But you don't have a say what other people think or feel about it so please shut the fuck up**

    My husband's stepmom told me to forgo college and become a waitress. She leaned in and said, "Make sure you wear low cut shirts and bend over the table, you'll get more tips that way"

    The evil stepmother also sent out a mass email to everyone she knows explaining that my husband's grandmother is in the hospital. In this email, she wrote "everyone has hope for her, but I think she should just go. it's her time. this is a bad time for me, I'm so busy and on top of that, i have to see her at the hospital" Worst way ever to find out that your grandma is in the hospital.

    She also has a crazy mother. I was holding someone else's baby and her mother yelled, "that baby is too white for you!" The whole room went silent and then no one could make eye contact with me because it was so awkward.

    my cat, on one of his first excursions out of the house, got lost like this. he was gone for the night, i thought nothing of it. the next day after i got home from work, i was doing the teeth sucking thing to call my cat 'neko'. i hear a faint mew from a neighbor's van. i investigate, and look from up the drivers side wheel well, up into the motor. i see my cat, all dirty, crying out of desperation. he was seriously wedged in there. it was like delivering a baby. i pull and he wasn't coming out. he helped me out a little bit with the wriggling. it took about 15 minutes to get him out. he paws were burned. dirty and smelly. he got a bath that night. he was fine after a few days. i just wonder if he really stayed in there while someone actually drove, he must've been burned so bad.

    It's interesting when people get too philosophical. Yes, I can't prove that there is an objective reality. Hell, I can't even prove that you exist at all.

    My opinion is just apply Occam's razor to the thing and move on. It's rather silly and pretentious to assume that only I exist and all these other things that look exactly like me are figments of my imagination. And it's rather silly to assume that our subjective realities are different despite the fact that what my senses tell me, and what others tell me they experience just happen to coincide in exactly the same way.

    In my mind, there are more interesting philosophical arguments to get worked up about, ones that aren't fundamentally unsolvable.

    While I understand you're reasoning, I believe it is wrong for the reason I suggested. Ignoring him will not get him to stop or have him focus on you. He is obviously insecure, picking on the older more popular kid. If he gets laughs or attention out of it, which he will if this person doesn't address the matter, he will be encouraged and will keep going with it, most likely doing it to other people as well. Think about the psychiatric implications. Scene 1 - he makes fun of someone, the person doesn't do anything, he is rewarded with laughs attention, which is what he was going for in the first place. Scene 2 - he makes fun of someone, the person calls him out and it embarrasses him, he is much less likely to do it again. He is not rewarded for his bad behavior with laughs, he is embarrassed by it

    >On the one hand, I don't really like the state to be involved in private decisions like smoking.

    Smoking incurs definite health costs on a population and one way or another you WILL pay for it. If you're in a single payer system, it comes right out of your pocket in tax dollars. If you're in a totally private system, then you STILL pay for it because the economy as a whole is smaller by a factor of all money spent on smoking health care that is not spent on TVs, radios and misc bullshit. In other words, smoking does not generate value for the whole, and people who smoke cost money to the whole.

    Americans are always complaining about how "big government" getting involved is a bad thing, so I went off on a tangent denouncing this reflex.

    I think that when goals are long term and profitability is low, government is an ideal solution (health insurance is very long term, so are roads, product safety, pollution control, Electricity)...

    In my province we get 99% of our power from renewables such as hydro, and we sell the surplus to the US. The power company is a government run monopoly that provides the cleanest and probably the cleanest power in north america. Boo hoo hoo, we're communists because the government controls power to make sure poor people can afford it. How sad for the capitalists that we have such cheap electricity; there's money left on the table here and I'm happy about it.

    Pretty good advice, especially the first paragraph. The quicker you do something the smaller chance you have to get caught. Always make sure you steal less then a felony amount for obvious reasons. If you do get caught and attempt to run do NOT make contact with the LP in any way, you could very easily be charged with assault of robbery. A lot of companies have adopted a "hands off" policy, your best bet would be to simply try to keep walking and even ask "are you going to stop me from leaving?" just do NOT touch them. The second paragraph is a common tactic used by "Organized Retail Crime" groups. People actually make a living, and some even run businesses by selling stolen merchandise. So box stuffing is quite common. Both parties can be charged with the theft actually, of course only if the first person gets identified will he be charged. The person actually leaving with the merchandise will claim they didn't know the box was full of merchandise, which has never held up in court with any of my cases. The second person is the only one that will be "apprehended" by LP if the first person leaves the building before the merchandise does. Only twice did I witness this method, we left the merchandise untouched to actually make the apprehension.

    The best advice I could give you is never shoplift when a store is quiet or slow. You are much much more likely to be caught, as there are less people to watch. People feel more comfortable stealing in an empty store, but always get caught. If for no other reason the LP is bored and will watch someone for little to no reason if there is no one else. The busier the better, it will be hard to pick up on "red flags" with you looking at dvds if there are 10 other people also looking ad dvds.

    At times when I am not swamped with school work (Grad School is a bitch), I would gladly explore the technical analysis side of things. I did read most of Soros' *The Alchemy of Finance*, which has some interesting insights on markets, before the current term started.

    However, I do think it isn't particularly helpful to expect financial markets (be they in currency, stocks, or commodities) to reflect market fundamentals (as the Efficient Market Hypothesis would hold). In fact, the New Yorker has an interesting story out (that I submitted in /r/Economics a couple of hours ago) about how financial crises occur in capitalist systems. Better models to look at (in terms of Macro) would be the Solow model of growth, the Quantity Theory of Money, and the Fisher Hypothesis. Those should all be pretty noncontroversial.

    It's best not to mistake Finance for Macroeconomics... they're definitely not the same thing...

    I heard an interview with Rich Cronin from the boy band LFO, another Lou P creation, and he said Lou only started boy bands in order to try and have sex with the guys. He would give the guys gifts and money while they were still poor in exchange for sex. Picture the scenario of some movie producer auditioning a girl then saying, "okay now take off your clothes. What you want to make millions some day right?" It was basically the same scene only with dudes. Rich was a pretty interesting interview and sounded convincing to me. He had a real hatred for Lou Pearlman.

    >it was enough if you did not copy the code

    That's one of the big differences between copyright and patent law: Copyright only prevents copying. In copyright, even when two works are identical, if you didn't copy, then you didn't infringe. Independent creation is a defense to infringement. When it comes to patent law, even if you had no idea that the patent or any of the things based on it existed, you could be found liable for infringement if what you had done was within the bounds of the claims. That's why patents pose a particular threat to free software that copyright does not.

    The shift from the way things were back then to the way they are now is largely based on what therapy pointed out about how software patents weren't really allowed until the 90's.
