    *grabs you by the scruff of the neck and drags you back*

    No you dont. You're gonna stand here and you're going to say what you just said to these nice people again. Louder. And you're going to do it with a straight face.

    And you know WHY?








    Because I absolutely agree with you.

    :nono: Now, now. Don't start with an anti-Apple rant. That's getting to be a tired argument.

    "Hmm, I wonder what happens if I pull this pin. I mean, it can't be a REAL grenade, can it?"

    I don't get this view point, it's not a scam. The devs tell you exactly what you're getting for $1000, no more, no less. They don't lie, cheat or fob you off with anything that isn't untrue. You know presicesly what you're buying when you buy it. How on earth does this quantify a scam?

    And besides, something is worth however much someone is willing to buy it for, and given 8 people bought it, it clearly must be worth $1000!
