As it looks now, this thread is off-topic, but not useless. A lot of funny stuff is shown here, exactly as I wanted it to be. :)

As a Dutchman, I would like to know what sort of cheese you like :D

Edam is 116 kilometres from my house :)

I like virtually every cheese, except from casu marzu (see below) and a Danish cheese wich smelled like crap (seriously) and smelly feet.

The texture is horrible (well on most French cheeses) but I have not tried much other kinds of soft cheese apart from French :D
and you live that close to edam? wow :!:

In related videos on the cheeze, I found this gem. I think I will pass.

This french cheese is pretty famous for having worms on it (the grey envelop around it is not moisture or simple fungus but very little worm keeping the cheese clean.

Cheddar....preferably old cheddar...3-7 years.

Apple wood smoked cheddar...yum. :)

Feta, edam, gouda, esrom, monteray jack, jalapeno jack...it's all good.



Just please....cheese whiz and velveeta...NO! There's no cheese in these things...they are "simulated cheese like product". :puke:

I agree 100%

Pushing back to the subject of music for a bit... Epica has reported that they have not yet felt any sort of loss from torrenting and pirating, because of concert revenue. IMO, any music producer that's not good enough to stay afloat off live performance earnings probably shouldn't exist in the first place.

I agree....I heard the group Alabama state that even with 41 #1 hits to their credit, 90% of their income is derived from touring ticket sales and only 10% from record sales.

I don't know how it would work... and what would they sue them for, lost earnings? How much profit do they make off 23,000 sales?


In the US they do very well. They threaten you with a lawsuit. It boils down to we can make it go away for between $2500 and $5000. If you don't make it go away, we sue. They get lots of people who know a good lawyer is $250/hour and a couple months of work even if you win is a loss.


So if 23,000 people refused the settlement and told whatever company is suing them that they'll see them in court, this company would have to sue 23,000 people. I imagine they'd argue to do it as one case but doesn't everyone have a right to be in the court at the time of the trial?

I just think the company might be bluffing if the majority of the people refuse to pay.

You can see if the RIAA is bluffing. Many cases are dragging out in court now. I suspect the film industry will do the same.

I'll bet they ARE bluffing... They're betting that not every case will demand to have a full trial, because not everyone is willing to risk losing money by not settling out of court. It's game theory, really.
