If he wants good meth he should know better than to get it in Florida.

New Mexico is where you want to be.

The $8.5bn Amazon MGM merger is absolutely terrifying, though in no way unexpected. And Amazon paid $0 in taxes last year. I vote with my wallet, having never purchased anything from Amazon and I will never, ever use a streaming service of any kind in my life.

It's staggeringly Orwellian and I dread what the next decade will hold for media ownership.

You gotta figure eventually they're gonna try and buy out either Netflix or Disney (which also owns Hulu).

I thought Time Warner owned MGM. Did they sell it to Amazon? Or does Warner just own the back catalog of classic movies?

Well those two companies are going to merge together along with literally everything else eventually so who cares?

Meh, it's all part of the plan. Jeff Bezos buys Earth. In fury Elon Musk buys Mars, activates his already-hidden laser weapons and thorium mines, the two planets go to war and the conflict is covered by Disney+ (special offer valid only for Martians with more than two heads, one per pod).
