No verbal contract was established.

If I say "I would like a vaccuum cleaner", and someone suddenly shows up at my door, I am not obligated to give money for their product. Even further, I could say it IN A VACCUUM STORE, where there is a reasonable expectation of purchase of product, and the declaration would not constitute a verbal contract.

Weebs feed the flow, but those at the end of the flow are so full of self-loathing that they attack the originators of the flow, the originators of themselves.

China has already de-facto banned those games for public consumption (by making an ID and 21+ requirement for any game that isn't full-banned, and a LOT of games are full-banned), so banning their streaming is a natural flow of events.

You overestimate the value of China's cultural impact. China wants more Chinese people being born. America does not want more American people being born. There's a strict split in values and desires. And so this will likely not become global standards, as it would lead to an increase in American birth rates, instead of importing foreign workers to make up the shortfall.

it's because of Trump's anti-china rhetoric.

But don't you dare bring up to them that since the perps are almost always black in these incidents, that implies that visible minorities are the most strident and active supporters of Trump by that logic, and the Lefties would be highly racist people to be so actively against the representative chosen by the black community.

At some point, eventually, in my dreams, the average consoomer will realize "this is entirely voluntary, but if you don't you're going to be fined, beaten, imprisoned, drawn-and-quartered, then the remains fed to pigs" might not actually be a "voluntary" process.

They're so attached to the word voluntary, because if it is mandatory it violates the geneva conventions, but they've stretched that word beyond its limits.

"If only we had a creative writing assistant, then we could solve this mess!" -US Government, presumably, if they're giving this list any level of credulity.

The contract is the bill, the receipt. Prior to receipt of the bill, no contract is yet formed. Socially we "accept" that the contract exists, but it does not in the strictest sense. "I would like a cheeseburger" is not a declaration of intent to enter a contractual exchange for a specific value, it is just declaring a personal desire. This is voided if you have done so before, as then there is an expectation of continued contractual interaction.

This may seem counter-intuitive, but counter-intuitiveness is how lawyers make their money.

It's good art, but I don't think it's a good photo, personally.

I dislike low angles of crowds, and clearly framed edges. Is this person alone? Of course they aren't, they have at least one person, a camera operator, behind them. But the angle is both low and close, how many more are behind them? How many in the parade? For all we know, this is 100000 vs 30 or so, or vice-versa.

As a art piece or propaganda piece (essentially the same thing, often) it's a solid work, but as an informational photograph, it is highly lacking.

A dine-and-dasher or a shortchanger doesn't agree to the contract, either.

And then some mixed-race euro-ashka-blasian catches it, it mutates, and kills all society.

Fermi's paradox is solved: Conflict advances people. People advanced enough to travel the stars are also stupid enough to make bioweapons.

Free-will-of-choice is a person pretending to be an AI learning bot. Don't worry about it, you'll get used to them if you lurk moar. It's fine to have a few weird roleplayers here and there.

It is obviously done on purpose.

If their goal was to present an awesome product, they would go "here, look, an awesome product!". You can see it in many fast food commercials: Burger, burger slow-mo, burger, price point, company name, burger, end. (Or pizza, or whatever).

But their selling feature, the reason the product was made, is not because it is a good product or made to sell. The reason they highlight is that it harms in some way some racial or gender group. That is the selling feature, that is why it was made, and they don't hide it.

Mari Shimazaki is a name of a woman you don't recognize, because she made a good product, instead of harping about how it hurt people of specific sexes or races. For reference, she was the artist/designer behind Bayonetta. Her goal was to make a good product, and she did.

Their goal is not to make a good product. Simple as that.

It is kind of weird when you think about it. Either way, it's breach of contract.

If someone robs a house, but then leaves a rubby ducky and an invoice saying "1 Rubber Ducky - Cost 1 house's contents", is it now only a civil court affair since it's just contract law?

No standards. Real criminals use Facebook and Twitter with little blue checkmarks by their names, posting openly about kidnapping people and sending them to "covid" camps, or strong-arming businesses until they close mafia-style, or giving false statements of endorsement to people and the products of people who slept with them.

I don't know if it was with this user account, if I get logged out I just make a new one, but long, LONG ago in this debacle, over a year, I said "it's the moral responsibility of people to always use a GPS spoofer and ensure your phone only has junk data" or something to that regard.

I was told, on here, that such was excessive.

Alternatively, it can be one of the best things if you are willing to, you know, actually be in the public eye and have a thick skin.

"I read all the comments, and fuck you trolls!" leads into "I'm only reading superchats now, that way the trolls can't get me." once the trolls become accustomed to milking their lolcow. Continue to overreact to negative comments. Trolls come, they give you money to insult you, you throw a conniption, then as soon as the stream ends, laugh to the bank.

This is a tragedy. Specifically, it will cause house value flux in the markets around the effected area with could lead to general market uncertainty. Market uncertainty is correlated with increased criminality. This humanoid being out and about can cause crime spikes in their area just by existing, which on the one hand is a fascinating economic/legal phenomenon, but on the other hand is really quite awful.

Someone needs to leave a package in the train with just a big ol' piece of paper saying "Governor Newsom has lots of expensive shit in his house, and he's said he's fine with you stealing shit in Cali."

I'm sure that the governor who advocated for more theft and to not punish thieves won't have any security guards who would gun down thieves on his own private properties. After all, that would be creating a double standard where he is above the people of his state. That'd be as hypocritical as forcing a restaurant to open in peak lockdown/masking and inviting a bunch of medical professionals there for thousand-dollar wine tastings all maskless. And no one could be that hypocritical.

Start using Robin.

If you're fined for the original term, the real deal, then clearly, it's just the sidekick.
