E. I doubt anyone would get fired over it if it didn't get widely disseminated (and they didn't know who took the CD ). I would feel compelled to share it with my close U2-friends. But I'm pretty computer-naive, so I would be too paranoid about distributing it widely (i.e. on the net) in case I got caught (and precedents have certainly be set in that regard of late...). I'd be tempted to tell peeps on Zootopia or Interference that I'd heard the record (on more than one occasion), but would probably resist.... until after it was officially released

I think I'd copy, leak, but actually return the physical copy.

Looks like you guys are all hoping that GAF and I are the ones who find the disc.


I'd take it, listen to it a dozen times, call up some friends and play it a few dozen times, then mull over it for a couple of days and probably end up leaking it right here on the Crack. I'd start with strong inclinations not to, and then be overwhelmed by a mixture of good nature and glory.


You're welcome, btw.

great plan!

That would be epic.

Nothing. However, the band will be less likely to suspect you.

I would keep it and share it with a few friends. Copy it, Frame it and hang it in a prominent place in my home. (It's not like it's the only copy)
Even though I would be extremely excited, I could never leak it. (Unless they decided to delay it again.) then I would send it to GAF and Utoo.

F without question. If they're daft enough to leave the CD behind ...

And honestly, anybody who says anything other than C, E, or F is probably lying.

I would take it, change the audio files pitch and speeds, cut up each song into pieces, reassemble the album into a clusterfuck of a puzzle, and then leak it like hell.

Then wait until someone puts it back together.

Where the fuck is that option?!!!
