A luncbox is a container in which people usually put the food that they will eat for lunch. But what food you put in it and when you eat the food is up to you.

I'm sure eventually we'll have the technology to create comestible lunch boxes.

@genjichan

You can even eat it at 3am in the morning if you like.

Tort law of negligence can go fly a kite because the man owns the tree, he has every right to do whatever he wants to it without even telling anyone. So long as his intention is not to poison the kids next door, nor can it be proven (which is actually VERY difficult because animals eat the fruits more often than the kids, and if it is the kids, the owner can actually sue his neighbour under the same portion of the law + tort of nuisance).
I'm not sure about this. I remember a case where some children drowned in a neighbor's pool - they were uninvited and trespassing, but the pool owner was held responsible. It's not the case that you're responsible for everyone who trespasses on your property, though. The ruling at the time (if I have this right) was that you're responsible if there's something on your property that would be alluring to children (not sure if it applies to adults) and that could cause them harm. A pool is considered alluring, and I'd imagine that a person would also be held responsible if they had a loaded, unsecured gun just sitting around. Is a fruit tree considered alluring? Lawyer up, I guess - one could argue that the mere presence of poisoned fruit is akin to polluting, and that the property owner was presenting a hazard to the public.

I have chosen the iPhone route, and even did a bit of jailbreaking with an earlier model, but it sounds like the Galaxy S2 would be better for you. A standard iPhone isn't customizable to the extent that you want, and while jailbreaking can help to get you there, it's a huge pain. With a jail-broken phone, you need to be very careful about all Apple updates, including updates to iTunes. That may not be a huge issue if you're a PC user and/or don't heavily rely on iTunes. Holding back on updates meant being behind on security and performance updates. If your phone is a critical component of your daily functioning, it's also somewhat unsettling to consider that an update, whether accidental or what have you, could render your phone unusable for your purposes. Apple has upped the complexity for working outside of their systems, and I wouldn't be surprised if they push it even farther in the future. At that point, you're putting in a lot of time and effort simply to maintain your phone the way you like - not worth it.

That said, the iPhone provides a flawless user experience (my opinion). I no longer have the time to tweak and customize, so I'm fine with the "walled garden" approach and can highly recommend it to anyone else who's OK with the limited customizability.

Depends on whether or not you feel like paying. Sony Vegas Pro seems to be pretty popular but costs quite a bit of money. I believe that you can still get a demo version of it. I'm not really sure about free ones though.

Yes, that's what I meant. imo awful you can only use the rather limited Roman alphabet. Oh well, at least we can use accented characters.

Why do movies look different than video on TV or I took myself? Sitcom footage looks smoother, faster, and more akin to the speed of life in real life. Movies look dreamy and soft. Why?

If the fruit tree is for aesthetic purposes, then the court can't do anything about it. And the neighbour will have to claim from insurance.

As for the case where the pool owner was held responsible, it is either his lawyer or the judge is a blockhead, or things work differently in America where whoever has the money makes the law.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Frame-rate, lenses, lightning, colour correction and other tweaks in post-production, etc. There's lots of factors that influence why movies and tv shows look different from what you film with your handycam.

Does anyone know if an electronic whiteboard exists? One that allows me to draw pictures on it, save them, and access them later after erasing? I'd like a personal one for my room to draw on, but I don't want to use paper and I don't want to lose my pictures when I erase the board. Thanks~

One thing than his example don't say is if the pool was too easy to acces; some place like where I live, may require than pool most have locked fence around or a remouvable ladder so a child couldn't go in by itself without help.

Do a Google search for "wacom tablets". You can connect one to the computer and use it with a drawing program. They work with Linux, too, if that matters.

I know about Wacom tablets, but do they have one that's a whiteboard with markers that I can stick up in my room? Thanks

Look up Interactive whiteboard? My local education system uses the brand Smartboard. If you are looking to "draw" something, an interactive whiteboard won't be sensitive enough to satisfy you. The purpose of an interactive whiteboard is to write, not to draw(referring to complex not stick figure drawing). But if you want something sensitive like a Wacom Intuos4, then it will cost way too much given how much a interactive whiteboard costs already. ~$1000-2000 per interactive whiteboard. A Wacom Cintiq ~$1000 - 2500. Cintiq is the size of a monitor.


My question

According to the rules for the gaming section of this forum, only games that resembles anime appearances or are related to anime is allowed. To me, this rule is just completely ignored because there is no way skyrim = anime related/look animish. Is this just locally(this forum wise) accepted? or am I reading the rules wrong?

Refer to the second paragraph.

Any tips on how to obfuscate torrent traffic? I mean something that prevents DMCA bitches from tracing your IP and the data packets.

I know about BTGuard, and I know I can buy some VPN services that helps with all the traffic, but they all cost money (not that that's a bad thing). I know also about Tor, but I'd rather leave that for the Chinese dissidents or other people who really need it.

Is now testing with the check torrent IP site.

I'm wondering though, since the check torrent IP site warned that VPNs occasionally drop connection and expose me anyway, would an extra layer of defense with PeerBlock + configuring VPNetMon necessary, not quite necessary but might as well do it, or just a waste of time?
