If they're genuinely dependent on those royalties despite having a full time job, then i think the real problem is that the minimum wage is unlivable and needs to be raised, not that copyright should last as long as it does.

  

The minimum wage is a whole other issue.

My family had Netflix about a year or so ago, and I saw that the Living in the Material World documentary and The Last Waltz were both on there. Unfortunately, before I could get around to watching them, my brother stopped paying the bill, so we didn't have it anymore.

But, fast forward to now, and lo and behold! We've got Netflix again! Ho ho! Finally! ahdn_john_08_gif

...And they're no longer anywhere to be seen. paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif Well, at least Echo In The Canyon is on there, I guess...

Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding. Don't get me wrong, these 2 songs are great but the problem is that these 2 songs count as 1 track, meaning that if you want to listen to Love Lies Bleeding, you either have to listen to a 5 and a half minute instrumental before it or carefully fast forward to the correct spot.

I have one like that, @Necko - when people have been looking for something and say, "It was in the last place I looked." Not like you're gonna carry on looking after you've found what you were looking for.

But what if you were going to look in, say, 3 different places, and you found it in the last of those 3 places you looked?

Also, I'm pretty sure that's the joke.

People who are overly obsessed about the amount of food their children eat and continue to feed them when they clearly don't want to. I was told by somebody that if their child didn't eat enough, I should continue to feed her even while she is crying and telling me she's done. I wouldn't do this, so the mom did it instead and the baby ended up vomiting afterwards. I wonder why.

Speaking of which, a pet peeve of mine is the UK Government's* planned legislation which would mandate that cafés and restaurants put calorie counts next to each item on their menus. It's going to be horrible for people with eating disorders; I wouldn't be surprised if many stopped eating out altogether if it goes through.

In my opinion, the best thing you can do to combat obesity is to make purchasing healthy food cheaper and simpler to prepare. I can only speak from personal experience here, but the cases of obesity I've encountered in my life (and indeed, the periods during which my own habits have been least healthy) have mostly been due to fast food being simply far cheaper and more convenient for individuals and families who live busy lives and don't have the money, time or education to buy and prepare properly healthy food. You can focus on dealing with these problems without torturing people with eating disorders. 

(* Not trying to turn this thread into a political quagmire, I feel that this is a reasonably non-partisan issue)

Well what's gonna happen is that kid is gonna have a hard time knowing when she's full because they're not allowing her to listen to her body now and will probably continue to do that.

This is already a thing where I live. I don't see an issue with it. People should know what they're putting in their bodies, and lots of people like to know the amount of calories they consume (I personally couldn't care less and never pay attention to them). I think having more information than just calories like fat content and vitamins would make more sense, though. 

I imagine it could cause issues with people who have eating disorders, but maybe it's better for them to be exposed to calorie counts even if it makes them uncomfortable. Then they can learn how to cope with their feelings instead of avoiding them. They have calorie count on stuff you buy from the grocery store anyways, so it's not like not putting calorie counts on menus will completely remove this trigger from their lives. 

In my opinion, the best thing you can do to combat obesity is to make purchasing healthy food cheaper and simpler to prepare. 

I always hear people saying that healthy food is more expensive, but I don't really know about that. Rice, beans, lentils, and potatoes are hella cheap. They're also super easy and fast to prepare as are pretty much all vegetables. Can cook them in like half an hour. If that's too complicated, they also sell canned vegetables or frozen ones that you just put in the microwave. Also, if we take into account the many health problems eating garbage can cause, there's absolutely no way that eating healthily could be more expensive.

Well of course you would, because if you had found it in the first or second place, you wouldn't have checked a third.

Six-second ads on YouTube.  Look, I don't mind watching an ad, but I hate the little thing that says "Ad will end in six seconds."  I'm human.  I want the satisfaction of pressing a button, dammit.

I'm not entirely certain as I believe it's skippable before it says what it's for, but my guess would be the guy in the ad is some kind of dietary "expert" (in quotes, because he could very well be a quack). It's ridiculously long as well, I think just over 50 minutes?
