So Streamus (an app that allowed you listen youtube without needing to visit youtube itself) has been shutdown,and that really annoys me because it was nifty.

Been reading about this a bit today, but you probably know more since it seems like you've used the service or are at least familiar with it.

Is this a case of a cool innovation  being shut down because of our dumb laws? Or because of egos/people that don't know a good thing when they see it? What's the deal?

Honestly,I'm still puzzling over it,but what would NOT surprise me is if youtube launches their own 'Streamus' some months down the line to take advantage

why would they shut it down?

i'm assuming they made use of the youtube api to do everything. that's the purpose of the api, lol? did it block ads or something?

So fed up with Comcast.  Maybe if they had simple, clear prices that were the same for everyone instead of the price model of a drug dealer, they wouldn't have halfassed a name change to hide from consumer hatred.

I can tell you from personal experience that working with most drug dealers is significantly easier than dealing with the cable company.

Plus, once you get the know them they'll give you discounts or even freebies.

So... you should really apologize to drug dealers for comparing them to Comcast. :-\

Should I compare them to a drug cartel instead?

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

You wouldn't just be subverting in-video/text ads, because Google hasn't taken down AdBlock. What you take out are the other YouTube plugged features, such as related, recommended and sponsored videos appearing on the sidebar. In particular, sponsored videos are a good chunk of YouTube's business model and undermining them by skipping YouTube's page entirely is dangerous. Corporate channels like VEVO would also take a huge hit, enough for them to possibly seek other distribution methods for music videos.

So I'm playing Majora's mask and I've reached the water temple,it's bloody frustrating when you get to the boss,only to discover you have five minutes to kill the boss,then the boss kills me and I have no choice but the return to day one.

 Kinda wish there wasn't a timer in temples,but I understand the frustration is the point so.. :-\

The Great Bay Temple is the toughest one because it's really easy to get turned around in and then you end up wasting so much time. Even with the inverted song of time it can still run long if you get lost. Though running through it a second time is easier once you get the temple item. HOWEVER there is one big thing that helps with the boss fight, and that is collect all the fairies and leave to get the Great Fairy's upgrade. She will give you a defense buff that reduces all damage taken by half.

Went to a party yesterday. Had a good time, but also was reminded of why I hate people.

Particularly, snobby 20-something chicks who are repulsed by armpit hair, complain about minor superficial flaws in other people, and think "weak-minded people should be weeded out before they destroy the whole group".

Ugh, I hope those people are hit by a car or something.

So you think those people should be weeded out?
No way dude, you're trolling me.
