    I intend to circumvent this ruling by making my guests lie on a bed of nails when they come over to watch a movie.

    Also, there was more to this article last time I saw it...

    I just know that some MPAA exec read that article, and said, "That's a GREAT IDEA! Why didn't we think of that before?"
