Re: The Well-Dressed Man

I'm sorry if it sounded like I got my back up. I asked for input and got it, and it's good to hear criticism.

I like the second pair for a beach trip, but the texture on the soles of the first pair look like LL Bean Boots.

Re: The Well-Dressed Man

And all the critics here were pretty silent when I asked for suggestions, but since I need more shoes, this is your time to shine. Show me your picks or STFU. I was silent because sneakers are a shit look. Here's my suggestion if you're going to go casual, do so with taste that's not following afte...

Re: The Well-Dressed Man

You don't know the difference between casual, business, evening and formal? I bet you wear a tuxedo during the day. The appropriateness of the apparel to the activity, and the iconography of the apparel, are what makes you well-dressed. And all the critics here were pretty silent when I asked for su...

Yeah but when every 'noting his business relationships' comment ends with *wiggly eyebrows* "Isn't that a *coincidence*?" then I start to roll my eyes.

Re: Video Games!

There are games where you can convert the items to actual money via trade. Most of them do poorly because of the problems inherent to a centralized economy, but they exist. I don't think you actually addressed my point though, that clearly people do value them as they would value something that coul...

Re: Video Games!

"Something worthwhile" is equivalent in this case to "something users would pay money for". Because it's a digital good, and thus scarcity is controlled, you can't really sell it for money, but if you could, you would have ready buyers. I think it's absolutely gambling.

Re: Portable Techno-Capitalism

Update, VZN offers the Full Pixel 3 at a $300 rebate from MSRP, which makes it only about $100 more expensive (ETA: than the Pixel 3a), and also breaks it out interest-free over 2 years, which is fine for me because I expect to use their service for at least that long (since nobody else has broken i...

Re: Video Games!

That's because FIFA is now a 'Live Service', not a game. It's so pernicious that the EU has banned a bunch of microtransaction and gambling/loot box features in the new FIFA series. Sorry to tell you this, man. This has been happening all over the AAA game space. It's almost impossible to just buy a...

Re: Portable Techno-Capitalism

I think I need to decide between the Moto G7 and the Pixel 3a. I don't play mobile games. I do want to take decent photos, but I don't 'produce content'. This phone will be immediately encased in some kind of military-grade armored case because it will be subject to being on my body while I do very ...

Re: Intellectualism: Dark and Webbed

I like Joe Rogan's podcast, and I enjoy the choice of guests, but choices are being made, and he's had the IDW headliners on his show and it's clear he agrees with a lot of what Peterson and Weinstein have to say. I do too, but I can see exactly why he's linked to them and I don't think it's a slur ...

If you watch 45 seconds or so, you've seen the whole thing. There are some decent comments too, which amused me.

Does this thread cover all streaming VODs? I'm losing interest in Netflix and moving to Hulu for Letterkenny and Archer, but I want to know what else is worth watching from their library.
