Of course net neutrality is important [if the legislation is worded correctly]. Look at it this way... do you want someone else telling you what you can look at on the net, controlling what you access? Unless net neutrality is protected it will be destroyed. The Government wants regulation, because they are paid by the industry lobbyists to want it. The media companies and ISP's want to be able to discriminate what you get to see, because then they can sell you a premium package 'upgrade' not to. Basically, the net at the moment is like radio used to be, competition at source, while the user chooses what they want to listen to. The companies want to move more to a cable Tv like business model, and divide up the content so they can sell it to you more than once. In order to do that, they need to be able to control the delivery system.

1000+ die, or 15Lbs of dice? So, who's up for a game of Champions then? I think you might just have enough!

Actually, neither #1 or #2 are necessarily correct. I've kept mice as pets, ones I could say conclusively are free from infection. I have also seen them approach cats, sometimes as a last ditch defensive 'bluff'. I've also seen the cats retreat in confusion, uncertain how to respond to what should be a prey animal acting aggressively. [granted, domestic cats, not leopards..but the generally the behaviour is similar.] I'd hesitate to classify this behaviour as exceptional, unusual perhaps, but not unknown.
