I'm Not Trying to Sound Holy

I'm not trying to sound holy, but if you extend this logic, you can also enjoy running stolen software, listening to pirated music, and looking at the forged art on the wall. This may be OK, and all of us may have indulged from time to time, but at least give some credit to the folks who created the originals -- whether software, music, artists or TAG-Heuer. The guys making the fakes may be good at making the fakes, but they can do some real damage to those who are creating the original works. So buy what you want and wear what makes you happy, but give some credit to Heuer and McQueen. They are the creative ones; the other guys are just making copies of their works and sponging off their mystique.

all this, in my humble opinion.



: I actually did purchase a real tag. It was my
: first high fashion designer watch. And at
: first I had a good feeling. Like I was proud
: that I could afford this over priced time
: piece. Then I came to a realization. Dude it
: is a watch!!!! LOL!!! Then after buying it I
: actually felt a bit ripped off. The only
: people being made to feel good is the Tag
: Heuer company. And they are feeling good all
: the way to the bank. How funny it must be to
: them to have people spend that much money on
: something it cost them absolutely nothing in
: materials to make. They give us pictures of
: Tiger Woods, Marion Jones, Scott Dixon,
: Steve McQueen, Sarah Fisher and the list
: goes on. That is just a way to make us think
: buying one will make like them. It is so
: funny. Basically dont be ripped off like I
: was from Tag Heuer. The only one that
: benifits is Tag Heuer and not you.
