"May" collect/use my ass. in (n) they just tell you you are fucked In (p) the "such as" is a nice stealth word. I asked my friend once, what he thought how long google is gonna reign supreme. He told me +/- 100 years. I´m now on the thought of +/- 100 years of human extinction. No one fights these megacorp billions. Life will probably get better overall, with age, for everyone. But if anyone thinks these megacorps can be fought without possessing the billions that they have.. please tell me how.
