I'm thinking of signing up for the Encylcopaedia Britannica on line. It's $70 per year. I don't mind spending it if it is worth it. I really don't like Wiki as much as others do here, i find their information sketchy and often incomplete. On line searches in general are rarely to my liking, but who goes to the library anymore? I don't want to waste my money, so if anyone has an opinion i would be happy to hear.

I actually like wikipedia, it generally has what I want... that said it is what it is. $70 a year is pretty cheap though. Might do it myself.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Yeah, one week but if it's like a new toy i will play with it for a short time, then there is the bill for $70. I could see myself using it for a month or so, give or take, and then...

But if he pays for a year and only uses a month then its not worth it. Unless he pays monthly with an opt out option.

I wouldn't do it.

what do you need it for?

Wikipedia'll give you links to good stuff...

I'm not as crazy about wiki as everyone else here. I might try the free week thing, and then go from there. What do i need it for? General reference. I find wiki insufficient. They are good with volume, but i am often not so thrilled with the quality.

I'm implying some isn't. I don't go looking up porn but I bet that the better porn <for the most part> costs money.

No, I just don't go there for porn. I know it would be pretty easy to look up. Actually I'm sure there might be a keystroke log on this comp (lol poor parents if they read any of what I type here I'm sure they'd be ready to die) and for sure have some kind of spyware where they can see every site I go to even if I delete the history (and get notifications on if I delete history and what it is that I deleted)
In the end it wouldn't be worth it.

Try Pornhub, Slutload, Redtube, Extremetube (More fetish based), or Youporn. EFukt is also good but it's just funny bloopers form porn.

Lol I actually went to youporn one time. It was an accident and I didn't get to watch anything cause mom walked in. It was first thing on the history on my stepdad's account.

Youporn isn't great. Depends on what you want tho. Redtube has a pretty extensive Hentai collection. Pornhub has a lot of real pornstars.
Pizza. I have enormous respect for Pizza.

Paying for anything on the internet is dumb.

what about internet porn?

Is that a serious question?

Is internet porn dumb?

Are you implying that internet porn is not free?

I'm implying some isn't. I don't go looking up porn but I bet that the better porn <for the most part> costs money.

o.O New to the internet I assume?

BAAAWWW MY PARENTS SUCK

Porn on the internet is mostly free.

Is it decent? I saw what free porn they put on TV...it had the opposite affect that I would assume porn would have.
