What do you steal?

What do you steal?

Do you watch free episodes of television for free on the internet? Do you download music and movies?

Do you walk into a bookstore (not library), and read, a few chapters at a time, a particular book until you are finished and not buy it? (Do you consider this to be stealing, the only exception is that you don't really get prosecuted).

Hmmm, no music, cable or internet (ok I used too) and reading at the bookstore - I never remember to take my stupid reading glasses so even some ingredients at grocery stores I have to have someone read them to me (grr - BUT HEY - I have 20/20 for seeing far away!!!), and so at the moment I have my topsy-turvy angelic wings on and can only say I snitch an occasional egg or yogurt from the roommates (who go to the warehouse stores and buy a ton of it at a time so it's not like it's the last one), but I replace when I get paid. Oooooooo - where's my halo?

I wouldn't consider it stealing because someone is giving it to me and they know about it(music/tv). I read magazines at the bookstore and don't buy them but hey I want to know what I'm buying before I get it and then I decide it isn't worth it. Now the real deal, this one time at the Swap Meet. . . oh nevermind. .

You know the little divider thingies at the supermarket for separating your groceries from the next person in line?


I steal those, do unspeakably kinky things with them...then put them back.

I just download music. However, the music that I download is not RIAA-certified, and many of the artists condone it. In that case, is it stealing?

I occasionally download movies and shows illegally and I download illegal copies of software. I don't steal, however. Stealing and making illegal copies are two different things.

I've shoplifted/stolen something only once. I was about seven years old, and had gone with my grandpa to a plumbing store. For some reason, I decided that a ball gas valve was something I really needed. So I took it. I was absolutely terrified for hours afterwards. I still have the valve somewhere, probably at my parents' house.

Occasionally I will eat a nut or something out of the bulk food bin at the grocery to determine freshness.

I also thieve glances of hot men, and...
I just happen to receive US weekly, although I've never paid for a subscription. I've been getting it for about a year now, despite them asking me to renew. What's to renew? I never subscribed in the first place...
