Also, I would have said I'm American if I were you, I wouldn't expect someone from the UK to make such a mistake ;)

Saintwolf Re:Pull an H (388 comments)

Stratford (In London) and Stratford-Upon-Avon (Not in London, where Shakespeare is from) are two different places entirely.

Could one technically not just put an accent on one of the vowels?

'The Hobbit' Pub Threatened With Lawsuit

Saintwolf Re:Easy! (388 comments)

No, because it would be within the same industry thus devaluing the name of the original McDonald's. In this case, a trademark is being enforced from one industry to another where the trademark would not confuse consumers (Well, they're not going to go into the pub to read the books are they? It's not a themed bar). Also, given the fact that they have not taken action for 20 or so years could call for trademark dilution. I really hope this becomes a David and Goliath case.

Saintwolf Erm... (114 comments)

Can't you just access it from the other side of the wall? Thereby bypassing the Vasari entirely.

YouTube Identifies Birdsong As Copyrighted Music

Saintwolf Re:Profit & Lies (730 comments)

Of course, Hollywood is run by tyrannical despots who claim to own everything anyone has ever created, so this sort of behavior is right up their alley.

The irony is, the film industry moved to Hollywood to get out of patent disputes.

UK To Dim Highway Lights To Save Money

Saintwolf Turn every other light off? (348 comments)

There, half the energy used in the UK streetlights and only a slight implication towards safety.

But that would be the smart thing to do, so it won't happen...

4 UK Urban Explorers Face Orders Not To Talk With Each Other For 10 Years

Saintwolf Re:Reall, Britain? (387 comments)

I can't say about the poll tax riots (because frankly, I don't have the energy to look them up), but the students fees are about immature people rioting over being forced to be more financially responsible for themselves instead of forcing others to pay their bills, and the war has nothing to do with people's right - so I'm really not sure what your point was. Maybe your point was that they love to riot, just not over things that actually relate to a tyrannical government that constantly takes away more and more freedom?

And yet Scottish students still get free university education, at the British taxpayers' expense of course.

Vaccine Could Cut Heroin Addiction

Saintwolf Re:Now that heroin is taken care of...... (382 comments)

They'd have to kill me to vaccinate me against Marijuana (Which would be redundant anyway :P), it's too good + safe.

Vaccine Could Cut Heroin Addiction

Saintwolf Re:To Quote Woody allen (382 comments)

I used to be a heroin addict, then I took a methadone-tipped arrow to the knee.

Vaccine Could Cut Heroin Addiction

Saintwolf This could be a bad thing (382 comments)

If you get really bad withdrawal symptoms (which in the case of heroin could potentially kill you), taking the vaccine means that you can't even have a little bit to alleviate the symptoms and cut down. I would also assume that it affects methadone too which, again, means suffering from withdrawal.

DNA Nanorobot Halts Growth of Cancer Cells

Saintwolf Re:Nobots? (74 comments)

He could be a flash in the pan like the BSB, develop into a musician with real staying power like the Beatles... He could even change the music world one day. 50 years from now people could talk about him like they do Bach, or never know who he was.

Oh God I fucking hope not!

Because the growth of Linux is very fast? I don't see any way that this could be construed as an insult toward Linux. Nothing better then a competitor giving free advertising :)

School Sends Child's Lunch Home After Determining it Unhealthy

Saintwolf Re:Despicable (554 comments)

It's not even the charging of the lunch that annoys me. It's the fact that rather than a Sandwich, Banana, Crisps, and apple juice, they have the audacity to serve her cafeteria chicken nuggets (Basically it's processed chicken beak/rectum). Does nobody else see this problem?
