Why milk the cow when you can eff it for free?

For some reason, "Does the Pope crap in the woods?" makes me laugh every time.

Chum1 still doesn't think the hacker(s) did anything illegal? How weird

I don't know much about the law.

Neither being a gigantic bad person nor embarassing someone really, really, REEEALLY bad are crimes. I guess that something like unauthorized access to computer systems is illegal, but we'd be kidding ourselves if we thought that's what people find so obviously condemnable in this case.

What is the general public actually horrified by then, chum?

I'm just wondering if it's a case where the law and morality actually diverge.

The publicly accessible locker was locked, and you spent 2-3 days trying to break in to it.

Did I commit a crime?

What's the law?  I know the guy in the last high profile case got 10 years, but I'm not seeing how it's totally straightforward that this is a crime.

Unauthorized accessing of secure computer systems is hacking and illegal.  Theft, blackmail, violation of privacy, and copyright infringement are some other charges that could likely be brought up in these situations.

I read a tiny bit about those things and it just reinforced my previous idea that this type of case is not such a straightforward issue.  Seriously, if I see a publicly accessible locker that was meant to be locked but left unlocked, is it a crime for me to take a look inside?  Why would it be?

Isn't it more like you stored polaroids in a locker in a public place, the locker wasn't as secure as you thought, someone accessed it, made copies of your pics, and left the originals in the locker? Would that be a crime?

This place is so bloodthirsty.

Those rough ridin' foreigners should have to pay for it. If they object, remind them that it's US mail, not rough ridin' foreigner mail.

This is actually kind of a thing. People try to conceive at the stadium and then name the baby "Snyder." Boy or girl. Doesn't matter.

I think 2 point percentage (64 for Roach and 57 for Brown) and PPG (16 for Roach and 20 for Brown) can be pretty skewed depending on level of competition on opponent's team and on own team.  But 3 point percentage favors Roach (44 to 38) while APG favors Brown (2.9 to 1.7).

Based on the videos, I liked Brown better than Roach. Roach is quicker and can jump higher, but Brown seems to have better developed skills including excellent handles, is a more intuitive player, and has a more well rounded game overall.

If Snyder sent a playbook with him, that could explain why he isn't the starter.

I've only drunk alone in a bar a few times in the past couple years. But each time, I drank a lot and was totally obnoxious all over the entire board.  So, what I'm saying is that I don't think I would want to confine myself to this thread.

I agree with EMO that the subject largely got changed from police using excessive force and shooting people to police equipment, which don't seem all that closely related.

It was closely related in Ferguson. And I think it's closely related overall because it deals with two big problems with law enforcement in the country that probably need widespread change.

They're two different problems with two different solutions. Focusing on the latter, more tangible, easier to fix problem takes attention away from the former, which seems like a much worse problem to me.

I feel my attention is adequately focused on both. Or more accurately, I'll treat them equally, (as in do nothing but talk about it). But I agree that the use of excessive force is a bigger problem.

There would't be investgations and such without the attention.

Well, this is going to be like the tenth time I've mentioned that no one in the US accurately knows how many people cops kill every year (other than some guy on shaggy bevo), so I hope that gets someone started on that. Like, to start I think any department that wants any money should have to report how many people their officers kill annually.

What I'm saying is that this is less likely due to attention being diverted to military equipment. There is a finite amount of attention that these people are able to give.

Should have gone in coworker quotes thread withan actual quote. This is a rough ridin' disaster.
