    Ok, the Pirates of the Amazon thing is frickin hilarious. However, what keeled me ded were some of the comments.

    fuckin stupid especially with the amazing price cuts amazon gives its customers, don't get me wrong i'm a huge bittorrent fan not to mention i pirate just about everything i possibly can, but stupid shit like this is what causes amazon to jack the prices right back up to retail… this is the one time i can honestly say, fuck you
