    You and Rule 8 are quickly becoming good friends. Since you enjoyed your last week off so much, have another.

    Read rule 8. This is your only ruling.

    I feel like the real reason is they want to screw up this infographic and make it out of date tho tbh.

    Just sayin' there's clearly a REASON they're reaching all the way across the picture!

    It's safe, the radiation it emits is pretty much harmless. You need to pump fuck tons of power into it in order for it to be at all dangerous.

    Its already inaccurate. Pepsi and Coca Cola own 49% of each other. Its a Monopoly disguised as a duopoly.

    Well... apparently said teen has been in contact with that politician for about a year and thy might have met up before. So... erm... not exactly entrapment.

    More, politicians should stop this shit. Actually... correction... more, people should stop this sexual predator shit. It's not cool.

    He is 17 now, and was 16 then. Now on general principle, yes its messed up to take advantage of mid teens, they are dumber than they are horny. But at that age? Male or Female, they know generally what they are consenting to, and assuming they arent abused, typically go for more, this is about the age where they start fucking each other, mmbr?

    I am not pretending this was the equivalent of a minor even just two years younger, or a preteen, and you shouldnt either.

    Although yeah, people involved in the public need to just not. You have to know half the time you are being catfished or set up.

    Holy shit wow. Reading the article, apparently the teen wanted Spring Break money. He was pimping himself out. LOL. So that would be why he went with an older dude. Keeps it secret. But then dad snitches. And now everyone will know him as the booty whore. Oh shit that sucks.

    You see what I mean about it being willing on the teen side... but even so... it's still kind of sketchy, no matter how you spin it, to have a married man with kids being caught with a teenage boy in a motel with lotion and condoms.

    let's see, 3 vacations a year for 18k total... 6k per vacation... Visiting family it looks like? That's a maybe 3-4 bedroom home, only 2 bedrooms or so if they're renting an apartment(seriously fuck new york housing prices). They probably got the cars used...

    These are entirely reasonable expenses and people are utter and complete jackasses for making fun of them.

    That doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things. Things like Google and Facebook have been doing stuff like this before this regulation came into play, but they were also limited to their platforms or things connected to their platforms for gathering data, so if you used two separate browsers or logged out of things often then those were generally blind. Not so with ISP's, they are literally the bridge you walk on to get everywhere on the internet and there's no real defense against this beyond VPN's and Tor, Both of which can eventually be just as bad as both still have someone at the end watching everything and they can just as easily use and sell that info however they please...

    As for why it doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things? it's only a matter of time before more shit like this gets passed unless it can be repealed, and only a matter of time before other countries start doing the same.

    It's some baaaad juju my friends, really bad juju.

    Well, I do believe some politicians would not want to be in the hot water they would create if they tried to pass that, so I guess we'll see.
