Have you ever stolen

<p>I remember during AP testing everyone had to put their phone on a table. At the end of the test I was really tempted to snatch an iPhone 4.</p>

<p>I decided not to because I didnt want to get caught but I know other people have given into the Devil's Whisperings.</p>

<p>No. Because it would **** me off if someone took something from me.</p>

<p>Finders are keepers though. And piracy isn't theft.</p>

<p>The last time I stole when I was five. I took all the little wooden people from the Books-a-million train station on accident.</p>

<p>Stealing is wrong. I realized that soon after and haven't stolen since.</p>

<p>I did once back when I was like 12 but it was something cheap and just ended up paying it back later when I just paid more then what I needed to for something and told the cashier to keep the change</p>

<p>Nope, never stole anything if I can recall.</p>

<p>I just always think to myself, "What if someone stole from me?"
I'd be ****ed! I'd feel extremely guilty and afraid of the consequences.
What goes around, comes around.</p>

<p>I been caught stealing once, when I was five.</p>

<p>I've stolen things occasionally. I operate under the principle that if the business still makes a profit off me, then its okay to steal (to be safe i steal only maybe 15% of what I buy from a given place).</p>

<p>you'd fit right in with the london rioters</p>

<p>Kudos for the current events reference ^^</p>

<p>maybe when i was a kid, but not anymore. I wouldnt want someone stealing my stuff.</p>

<p>I stole a furniture magazine when I was five. (Oddly enough, I had no interest in it whatsoever.)</p>

<p>But I've grown up a little and realized that honesty is the best policy.</p>

<p>Not only have a stolen, I've given what I've stolen back to the owner.</p>

<p>I'm am whats called an Indian stealer.</p>

<p>Yeah. When I want something, I don't want to pay for it.</p>

<p>Interesting that no one mentioned Mp3/software/movies/other torrents...</p>

<p>We've all done it /shrug</p>

<p>Yeah, I've definitely downloaded mp3s/software/movies/TV shows. That's definitely stealing, but I don't regret it.</p>

<p>I'll just leave this here.

<p>i think the point is that you're enjoying the fruits of a person's labor without compensating them for it. I generally don't care about pirating music but if it's on a band's own label (AKA they get a much bigger cut of the profits than they do on the normal record labels) I always buy it. It's their freakin' livelihood.</p>

<p>People who think piracy is no big deal need only look at the sorry state of PC gaming.</p>

<p>Sure, I've downloaded some songs, but I've bought like 95% of my music collection. I also occasionally steal small things from people I know, like if I ask to borrow a pencil, I won't give it back because chances are, I'd still need the next time I want to write something down. It all balances out I guess, because I let people borrow my $1 bills and quarters all the time for vending machines and the like, knowing I'm probably not going to get that money back. I've never shoplifted and I wouldn't ever want to.</p>

<p>Yeah, let me just say I've done my fair share of illegal downloading. Feel a bit guilty whenever I do it lol. If Netflix's instant play had a good selection I would almost never pirate.</p>

<p>Eh, movie studios are making enough on theater ticket sales for me to feel sorry for them. Take a movie like Avatar. It made over 2.4 billion dollars in profit. DVD sales constitute only a small percentage of the money being made. If a movie losses money, it's no ones fault but the studios for producing a film no one wanted to watch.</p>
