  1. What a bunch of assholes - resorting to violence over something completely meaningless like a movie. It's not like your fiend even prevented them from seeing the movie.
  2. I would try to figure out how to confirm that I am not hallucinating while not giving away the possibility that I may be hallucinating.
  3. 1gbps down, 600mbps up. My country is known for having good internet, mainly because of the competition between various ISPs.
  4. I wasn't looking to change my opinion, but at the same time I was not expecting to convince anyone to change theirs. The opinions are formed based on values and it is very hard for someone to change values. However, it is still fun discussing various topics with people who have different opinions than I do and seeing how they think. Discussing politics with someone who thinks exactly like me is boring, because it feels like I'm standing in front of a mirror and agreeing with myself. However, such discussions have to be fun for both parties and should preferably be done without personal attacks or trying really hard to interpret an argument in a way that was not intended. I am also more used to discussing such things in person where nobody asks for sources (after all, we don't debate in a library while looking for various books to support our arguments).
  5. There's a new Fruits Basket? I have to check it out.
  6. Depends on which season of the show this happens, but probably Spike since he is the closest to Twilight (and has hands, but mainly the "closest to Twilight" thing) so I could spend time talking with her.
  7. "The Cloud" translation is "Someone else's computer". Local files and physical media are much more reliable than files on someone else's computer.
  8. They believe they will make more money that way.
  9. It really depends. While being immortal would be great, I would have to trust the equipment to be impossible to hack and not have backdoors. But if I was certain that the equipment was secure I would do it. Hell, if I was old ir in bad health I would do it even if I wasn't 100% sure about the security. Why would I want to die if given a choice not to (assuming no strings attached)? For that I think I would even agree to go to Equestria and become a pony.
  10. I would keep my downloads, but would still buy the bluray box set. I have bought the movie and Equestria Girls blurays. However, this is one of the reasons I archive a lot of stuff. There are no guarantees that something on the internet will be available tomorrow and no control over that, while it is entirely up to me if the stuff in my hard drives, tapes or disks will be available.
  11. Because they get paid by the "legal" channels for the show. Companies think that everyone who downloaded something 1) would not buy it legally 2) would have bought it legally if there was no alternative. While both of those are true for SOME people they are not true for others. Also, someone who downloaded the show could still buy toys and Hasbro would still get some money. But, I guess, not all the money. I'm still waiting for the bluray release of MLP though.
  12. That's what old computers are for. But this is one of the reasons why I prefer physical media (or no-DRM downloads) over any kind of streaming or "subscription". I know that if I had a subscription to some streaming service I would download/record everything I watch/listen anyway so as not to lose it.
