@ferrari2001: We do have territories that have the right to leave the US. Puerto Rico can leave if they choose, but they continue to vote to stay as they are.

Nop. We don't have a "right" to leave, we serve at the pleasure of your Majesty's Congress:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"The commonwealth system does not, however, describe a legal status different from Puerto Rico’s constitutional status as a “territory” subject to Congress’s plenary authority under the Territory clause “to dispose of and make all needful Rules and Regulations respecting the Territory … belonging to the United States.”"

Contrary to popular believe kids, the US is a colonial power. That isn't to say that if Puerto Rico were to vote OVERWHELMINGLY for one option between statehood/independence (specially independence) that the United States Congress wouldn't be compelled by world wide pressure to deal with the Puerto Rico "problem". You could say that morally the US Congress would be oblige to the will of the US Citizens living in Puerto Rico but I have seen stranger things.

I don't think anyone would really care if Puerto Rico left......except Puerto Rico of course.

I followed your link to standard accounting practices. Which has nothing to do with your current conversation. But since you want to bring accounting into it......spending $2.5 billion for a return of $25 million is a loss. Interest of $25 million would be a gain. The analogy is terrible.

First of all, read the Polygon article, then you'll see why I pointed to GAAD on wikipedia.

I did. It was BS. As far as accounting is concerned...it's a way to account for profit and loss. Period. That article didn't understand accounting at all. Second.....in regard to business investments....they should generate profit. Profit is money coming in over going out. And while they might make more money on the product....and that is an assumption not a fact....they still lost the initial investment. Money sitting in a bank is NOT lost. It's generating income for you. Buying something and expecting minimal return is not good business. The only thing loss is good for is as a write off if everything else is making money. Not every division MS has is profitable. This makes zero sense. You can spin that stupid article all you want but it boils down to making $25 million over holding $2.5 billion with roughly another $25 million in interest added at the end of the year. Which one means you have more money?

As far as GAAP.....that is not the correct use of the term.

Not sure where you got your MBA but I'll never go there...

I'm not sure where you went to study to think GAAP cover what a company invests in. But hey....you have $100. The bank will pay you $2 interest for a year. Instead of doing that I will give you $5 today. At the end of the year when you have $5 and I have the principal ($100) and interest ($2) we'll compare and see who has more.

I'm not from the UK but I think it will not be good for Scotland.

You still haven't answered my question, do you even realize that you turn everything into a semantics argument?

Do you realize you whine and troll?

I do like my XB1 but I'm sure the PS4 is just as good but I've always been a Xbox gamer so I prefer that instead of the PS4.

You have not been gaming long....

You don't even know that. He only stated he prefer the XB1 over PS4, how the fuck is that any different than someone stating he prefers PS4, been always a PS gamer, so he prefers PS4 over XB1?

You might want to read his post again champ....

@LJS9502_basic: No. I can tell by the answers those individuals are clueless....

They can say that about you.

That would make them incredibly stupid since I didn't give my opinion.......so I take you think I gave an opinion....which makes you...well I'll let you figure that one out. ;)

Nope. Their music sounds very very similar...there is no innovation. Boring and uninteresting.
