Stephen King novels older than 2 years should be priced at $0.75

I think we should also take their literary value into account -- make it $0.50 instead. :)

Yeah, and back in the real world, what real restitution have Microsoft provided for violations equal to (if not worse than) Intel's?

kubrick Re:Middle-class White Guy? (204 comments)

Lithium In Water "Curbs Suicide"

kubrick Re:lithium is well known (458 comments)

Regardless of what you want, it's inhumane to confess your shit to another person and then expect them to take any action other than the one that preempts exposure to guilt over a life lost.

Your issues with guilt are not my concern. If I want to commit suicide, obviously matters of "humanity or inhumanity" are probably not the highest problems on my agenda.
