Re: The Longest Thread Ever v28
If Colbert had a real shot, he'd never do it. Why would he want to work that hard? The whole thing is satire of the process (between his superpac and passing it on to Stewart). Brilliant satire, but there won't be a sustained run.
And the way things are going with piracy, SOPA/PIPA and whatnot, we're just going to have to end up turning to the true land of blackmarkets: Eastern Europe and China. I know a flowershop that sells "movies" so long as you don't mind Chinese subtitles.
EDIT: Agree with Artan. If downloading truly becomes illegal/impossible/unfeasible, I'll probably just survive off of what I have now unless something comes up that I really want to buy.
It's amazing to me that, unlike in the real world, people on the internet will wear "everyone thinks I'm a moron" as a badge of honour.
