[quote]Someone who doesn't actually believe in Hyperloop. Dumbest idea ever. I wonder how much money he's cost himself wasting time on this idea when he could be making money doing whatever else he's known for. [/quote] He put the hyperloop out there into the world and basically said "build it"...

[quote]A battery powered semi-truck? That's some serious science fiction shite right there... Don't see that happening anytime soon.[/quote]I think trucks are a perfect and obvious vehicle to run on batteries.

[quote]Not really. What sets me off is the sense of entitlement shown when people say, "oh, they're ripping me off anyway so I am going to just take what I want" and then claim that they aren't doing anything wrong. If people were like, "frick it, I steal that shite because I don't feel like payin...

re: KickAss Torrent Site Seized - Korkstand
[quote]Some should, but I like shows on about 25 channels. It works better for me (and many many people) to share in payment for channels than to try and pay for everything a la carte.

re: KickAss Torrent Site Seized - Korkstand
[quote]My point is that at this point, you can purchase exactly whatever content you want. There are services out there that allow this. There is still some fine tuning of it, especially with sports, but pretty much everything else is available a la carte. Your argument defending pirating is pretty ...
