I had to pull the entire motor twice (In addition to pulling once for the original rebuild), and drop the tranny seperately three times, because of a shitty builder, for a build that I was planning to conclude April 1 of this year, but instead finally got the drivetrain worked out within the last week, and am still trying to tie together loose ends.

In some cases, yes. In other cases, not at all.

Let's say we go back to the 1950's phone company. There's no IP at stake here. The standards of the phone system are widely published and distributed, and are not held to be in any way proprietary. Company A simply says to Company B "No, we won't allow you to run your wires into our building," and that's that: their monopoly is intact.

(The above is, in fact, completely true. As an example, the information which allowed the early hackers to divine the secrets of the tandem-trunk switch and create the first blue boxes was openly published in the Bell System Technical Journal (Nov, 1954 and Nov 1960), a publication which is available to the general public and was, at the time, subscribed to by many engineering college libraries.)

Of course, this dilemma arises only as a result of physical property rights. I suppose you could argue that if the government didn't enforce physical property rights, then Company B could have sent a team of armed engineers into Company A's Central Office to interconnect the switches at gunpoint. And certainly, automotive manufacturing would be a lot easier if henchpersons from Chrysler were allowed to break into Toyota's manufacturing plants at will and appropriate their tools.

An alternative, I suppose, would be to nationalize ownership of all commercial and industrial property. Oh, but wait- that means that the government itself would be a monopoly.

(Damn you, Vladimir Lenin, and your confusing notions of socioeconomic theory.)

It's really no different in today's world to say that intellectual property rights should be abolished as it is to say that the concept of property ownership in general should be abolished.




Oh, and Bond, shut your gayhole. We're rambling.

He says that this proves how "real" a sugar addiction can be, maybe it proves how "fake" a drug addiction can be, I don't know about you but I've never robbed a 7-eleven or some little old lady to fund a Snickers addiction.

Amtrack Amtrack, whatcha going to do?
Whatcha' going to do when the gov't keeps dumping millions of dollars in your shitty company while monopolizing the businesses and forcing private companies from competing against you by building private rails, so everyone ends up losing in the end with a shitty gov't run train that constantly runs in the red and prevents innovation and improvement so it can continue to employee 19,000 public employees on the taxpayers dime.

Amtrack is going to give me a nice ride up to DC tomorrow for the cost that is 1/4th the price of a plane ticket. Thanks for subsidizing my ticket price Brain.

you know you'd rather ride on a private train if given the choice, the trip would be faster AND cheaper.
