Meneth Why go to America? (195 comments)

One wonder why this guy would travel to America if he knew he could get arrested for his business. Only thing I can think of was that he actually didn't know it was illegal. Relevant law: Title 18,United States Code, Section 2512(l)(b) (sale of an interception device).

Japan To Launch a Military Space Force In 2019

Meneth Re:Space Junk Chain Reaction (150 comments)
