To be fair, France has a very long tradition of banning religious symbols. When I was writing an exam at my University in Paris, I had a rosary on my desk. The invigilator asked me to put it in my pocket, or otherwise he would have to send me home. » 10/27/14 6:50pm Monday 6:50pm

That is some abuse you are taking there. I had my MBP die on me after two years and three freaking months and I am not going back to Apple. Fanboys be like "You should've gotten Apple Care" yeah, if I had known prior that Apple Care is a prerequisite because those shitboxes premium computers die on you after a little… » 10/15/14 5:40pm 10/15/14 5:40pm
