    I don't know what's worse - that somebody thinks Hideo Kojima's writings are anywhere in the same ballpark as mature (seriously, read a fucking book, people), or that somebody thinks Hideo Kojima is...

    In that stead, rather than defining the difference between race and species, a better argument is defining the difference between refugee and migrant, and what the long-term plan is if and when the...

    Why?

    There is no city-wide livery service where I am. Each livery dispatcher is limited to the neighborhood where the dispatcher is located. How could any one livery service compete?
