This is an informative post as to why people pirate, or at least why some pirate. Yes, people pirate stuff, but they also buy stuff that could easily be pirated. Some of my friends ask me “Why would you buy that when you could just pirate it!?” using this face.
The people who ask this question are people who I consider leechers. These people, for the most part, don’t pirate themselves, but rely on others to pirate for them. They also don’t seed. -.- So, to answer the question as to why people pirate yet still buy things can be answered in several different cases.
Case 1: Testing Out a Product
Some products are expensive and once bought, can’t be returned. This is the case for a lot of software because you are buying a virtual key and not a physical entity. Many programs offer a trial version which is nice and does not require me to pirate anything.
However, there are a lot of products that don’t have a trial or free version. Therefore, people will pirate the software and test it out to see if it does what they need it to do. If they are satisfied with the software, and it is reasonably priced, they will then proceed to purchase said software. Although, if they don’t feel the product is worth the penny, or if they only require the software for a one-time use thing, they will not buy the software because that would be a waste of money. Which transitions into the next case of the availability of money.

I found this on the Nerdist blog which came from Online Dating University. It is a very nicely done infographic of all of the Doctor’s companions. Amazing work, also SPOILER ALERT!@!@!@!@!@!@!@!@!@!@! If you haven’t seen the latest episode of Series 6: “A Good Man Goes to War” DO NOT look at the very bottom in the “Interesting Companions” section. View the full Infographic
My birthday is coming up in a couple days and I was challenged with the task of thinking of things I want. So, here is the list which I will probably update many times. View the list of awesomeness
I was in the mood to check out the classic Doctor Who I’ve been hearing so much about. I’m a big fan of the current series, but I really wanted to watch the classic Dr. Who so I could get some of the references and whatnot.
So, I decided to fill my entire Netflix Queue with classic Doctor Who DVDs The only bad news is some of the episodes are missing or not on Netflix yet, especially for the first couple of doctors. Once you get to the Third Doctor they are pretty much all there.
When I was compiling my list I really wish someone one had done what I am about to do, but lucky for you, no wishing Past the break is a lovely list, with links, to all the Doctor Who DVDs on Netflix in serial order of when they aired. I’ll try to keep it up-to-date and whatnot, may slack off a bit though. See the full list
