The brick-and-mortar shopping experience is still worth it if I want something now or doing what to worry about paying for shipping (usually I buy *more* than I need at Amazon for small purchases to qualify for free shipping).

Its easy to spend exactly what you need for free shipping with tools like
Amazon Filler Item Finder and Slick Fillers

Why Money Doesn't Motivate File-Sharers

macragge Re:This isn't altruism (633 comments)

They are also taking the time to curate the collection of media that they're sharing.

If one were to volunteer at their local brick and mortar library, would they not be acting altruistically? Was Andrew Carnegie a thief for helping fund the creation of 2,509 public libraries? I’m sure that many publishers would prefer that their media not be freely available at these libraries.

Judges Can't "Friend" Lawyers in Florida

macragge On a slightly unrelated note (138 comments)

I recently had the privilege of serving as a juror in a DUI trial. I was quite pleased to discover that the Judge appeared unbiased, if not slightly more lenient towards the defense.

Also, the defense attorney poked so many holes in the prosecutor's argument: that the jury only had to deliberate for about ten minutes. I was absolutely shocked to learn that he was a public defender.

On top of that, the defendant was a black male from the city while the jury was entirely white suburbanites.

Going into the trail, I expected that the system was going to screw the defendant, but the Judge showed no bias, the Public Defender was competent, and the Jury presumed the defendant to be innocent. Now I feel like the media is full of shit.

Low-Budget Electronics Projects For High School?

macragge Virtual Reality (364 comments)

I know how fun it can be to get your hands dirty, and its amazing how empowering it feels once you realize that you can build your own circuts, but if you're on a tight budget, why not turn to simulated circuts. There are plenty of flash apps and games like Gate out there.
