Re: News from the department of naming collisions
ah, dammit.
I knew we would sooner or later run out of cubits.
We shouldn't have build that many big ships at once, now we have to find means to aquire money. Lots of it.

Re: News from the department of naming collisions
We should build some robotic servants to do our work for us. That will save a lot of money since we won't have to pay them. What's the worst that could happen?

Re: News from the department of naming collisions
yeah, it's not like they would ever rebel or anything.
But redsniper gave me an idea, we could build female robot sexslaves. I'm pretty sure there's a market for that and the income would be sufficent to build entire fleets!  :pimp:

...This thread should be screenshotted/linked to in all. Future dictionaries under "off-topic."
Could we with ink the ocean fill, and were the skies of parchment made
Were every stalk on earth a quill, and every man a scribe by trade
To write the love of God above, would drain the ocean dry
Nor could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky!

Re: News from the department of naming collisions
some comments about that article are saying it's not the fault of paypal but the ones who decided to trust paypal and didn't read the fine print.

don't strike the messenger please.

Re: News from the department of naming collisions
What was in the fine print that allowed them to do this though?

Re: News from the department of naming collisions
Well it does say in the article "At times, we may require a business or charity to hold funds in their accounts to ensure that they can refund their customers if there are a high level of complaints" ... it sounds as though that's some representative of PayPal saying that, but I wouldn't be surprised if that's supported by some text in their terms of service.
