Witcher 2 Torrents Could Net You a Fine

Mrdzone Re:Intended Reaction? (724 comments)

You keep saying it does no damage to anyone when it's proven that is does do damage to them.

If I wanted to play a game, and that game is selling for $60 but instead I pirate that game, I have DEPRIVED (HARMED) the developer of that game.

What about that don't you understand?

Facing Oblivion, Island Nation Makes Big Sacrifice

Mrdzone Re:They're gonna feel like... (360 comments)

I suppose if you want to define victim in this manner then sure but that's pretty disingenuous.

They can affect change, they chose not to, they suffer the consequences...

Facing Oblivion, Island Nation Makes Big Sacrifice

Mrdzone Re:They're gonna feel like... (360 comments)

Who cares. They are people being governed. They can either accept the government they have (along with it their decisions) or try to change it (either through the peaceful process of voting or by violent revolution) However it is still their blame to take if they did neither.

Your Online Education Experience?

Mrdzone College doesn't train you on vocation (428 comments)

I doubt you'll find a school either online or B&M that will fit your needs unelss you go into a very specialized program at a school like CalTech, CMU, or MIT.

The reason for that is college is not, by and large, about learning how to do what you want to do. It's about learning how to do what you HAVE to do, in order to do what you want to do.

Working in teams, doing BS work that you don't like (TPS reports anyone?) working through bureaucracy etc... once you demonstrate these skills any idiot can be taught web design at a basic enough level... everything beyond that is experience anyway.

Mrdzone Lobbying VS Spying (279 comments)

I love how when they don't declare themselves it's "spying" but when they do it's simply "lobbying." Brilliant!

3rd-Grader Busted For Jolly Rancher Possession

Mrdzone Re:More "zero tolerance" idiocy (804 comments)

If you want to attend FREE school, you absolutely must abide by the state/district policies. Don't like it?

Can you define free? Last time I checked even I am paying for the kids in my district to go to school and I don't even have any..
