i also liked the movie. it was damn good!
i don't "idolize" kevin either. i think he seems like a pretty cool guy, and he got fucked over in what happened to him. that doesn't mean i worship him like he's my new god or something. i think it's really sad when our government freaks out and imprisons an innocent man just because he's intelligent. that is the real crime here. so yay for kevin being free! it's about damn time!

Doesn't he tell parts of his story in Art Of Deception? I bought it and read the first six chapters. Somewhere he starts talking about true stories of him and his friends ... : :

I would agree. I have downloaded many ebooks for studying or entertainment purposes. I will rather download and print or just buy the book. I can't get into a book or study from a book without being able to go into a corner on lay on my bed and relax with it in hand(the book).

of course. And did you guys hear about his new company and his latest book THE ART OF DECEPTION... what do you think ? is that worth reading ? i would say yes indeed coz Kevin had some really extra ordinary skills in the past, i'm not sure about now...

I prefer to read real books, but ebooks can be had for free... I get a pdf, bring it to school and print it out, then put it in a report cover. Feels like a book to me

For starters.

Quote:
The reason I don't idolize him is..
I never suggested any of you idolized him I said I didn't. Also I didn't make my decisions based on the movie as it says "things have been added for dramatic purposes”. I read a big fucken news paper article about him, that's probably not that much but I'm still not judging him by the movie. Also I have no idea how much money he wasted which I said but I'm sure he wasted some money with all the police chasing him etc.

that was the government's choice to chase after him. maybe they should have been concentrating on REAL criminals not chasing Kevin. it's their own damn fault for wasting their time/money to hunt him down. and you know it was big mistake because congress actually admitted that they were wrong and let me go. yeah.. takes a lot for our government to admit that they were wrong about anything.
