    9 times out of 10, i can get what i'm looking for without piracy. I'm not going to claim i wasn't a huge pirate back in the day, but these days i usually can find anything without it. When i say i occasionally have to resort to torrents, it's in the case of a single episode or series that got pulled from a streaming service and just isn't available anywhere else. Movies are easier, i'm more likely to just buy a download to my Xbox One since that's basically my media center. Tangent, it's really the console that's done the most to curb my piracy habits. I was that guy that said over and over "I just want it to play games, all this media shit is unnecessary, i'm never gonna use it!" Then we had a kid, and it has become the epitome of entertainment convenience. So anybody who ever wanted an example of me having to eat crow, there you go.

    Knowledge.

    It’s easier for most people to use Kanopy or Hoopla.

    It really is amazing what you can get from the library. I didn’t know until recently that I could take out DIGITAL books from my local library downloaded to my Kindle. They also have a DRIVE-UP service; I order online and someone delivers it to my lazy ass out front in my car. INCLUDING DVDs! OF CURRENT STUFF!

    What's really messed up is in the UK library's are vanishing at an alarming rate (i haven't had a local one for years!) this soon won't even be an option for us!

    I try not to pirate, but as an anime fan it's sometimes the ONLY option, especially with some show's not making it over here (like FLCL's new season, never got a UK stream release, but was available in the US...WTF?!) or show's just being pulled from streaming services and only for sale on DVD from ebay for silly prices (Like Kill La Kill, i still haven't even finished that!) on top of that with so many different streaming services just for anime, all asking for the same price, it's no wonder people move to pirate...and the same is happening with regular streaming sites now, too many streaming services want a piece of the pie which is causing people to be really picky with what service(s) they use or just dropping them completely.

    Today, we decided that the constitution doesn't allow you to put a chalk mark on someone's tire, but it allows you to buy a semiautomatic rifle.

    I think it's time we admit the constitution has maybe stayed up a little past its bedtime.

    Yeah, i really don't get that. Like, i see the chalk thing as some mild entrapment, but unconstitutional? I can't see the connection there.

    Luckily, there appear to be a ton of them listed online.

    Including many in London.

    They’re touching your property without first obtaining a warrant.

    That makes perfect sense. I should have seen that. I'm a super stickler about warrants and private property.

    Are they suddenly illegal? I thought we never got around to banning those.
