Re: Fly the Friendly Skies...

They aren't called 'beauty vests'.

I used to rock a milsurp 6x10" canvas shoulder/belt pouch for those kinds of occasions. More pockets in a garment isn't really the answer unless the question is "Am I a fly fisherman?".

More bothered by this than the gun thing. This is their wheelhouse and this is the abandonment of the notion of civil liberties in that arena.
Yeah the gun thing was just to frame that thought.

Yeah. 'We won't advocate for anyone who exercises their Second Amendment rights along with their first.'

Re: Petty annoyances

Oh, I actually think that it's kind of coming from the other end: profit, not cost, has changed. When you get 3x revenue (and far more profit now that the supply chain is digital and not disc-based) from the same investment, why change? But I think that indie games will continue to provide innovatio...

And the hardware scene is lame right now because prices are high and there isn't anything super exciting on the horizon.

Re: Fly the Friendly Skies...

Instead of complying with severely limited carry-on requirements, I'm going to wear a huge overcoat and rig all my belongings to the inside, maximizing my personal space, creating a physical barrier against my neighbors, and allowing extra room for souvenirs in my bag on the way home.

And my doctors name? Jonas Salk. I'm sorry, the correct answer is $350.00 if they take one of the discount cards. Discount cards are almost always bullshit. Manufacturers coupons/discounts are where it's at yo. Seriously. They will take the insurance/out of pocket co-pays rather than miss a sale. H...

Re: OFFS: The Forsakening

If I rent my commercial space from a person who donates to gay conversion camps, would you boycott my business because that's their income stream? Would you consider me to be immoral for renting from them? This isn't the first time we have had this discussion, but I am fascinated with the unpredicta...

Re: OFFS: The Forsakening

I guess I don't know how people draw the line. Question for people who support a boycott: Are we morally responsible for what a person or company does with the money that they earn from commercial transactions with us as customers?

What degree of financial separation is required from bad actions?

Re: Occam, Trump, and Russia

I like McCain. I liked when he shut down the "Obama is a Muslim" lady at his campaign event, and I've liked his responses to Trump so far. I have disagreement with him on a lot of issues, but I think that he does have a lot of principled positions that I can respect him for.

ChikFilA wins on consistently being 5/5 as expected on their staples.

As far as Kultur War, I encourage everyone to not make themselves responsible for other people's actions. There is a 100 percent chance that you are buying products from people who have politics you don't like. That's ok.

It really bothers me that CDPR put so much effort into features and story and forgot to give Geralt more than two fighting animations. Weak. Strong. Doesn't matter what weapon you have. Weak attack. Strong attack. Roll. Never changes. I only got 1/3 way through W3 before I was bored by the fighting....

I don't think that there is an established set of facts in play, and this thread is a mess because of that. It would help me to have someone lay out a time line connecting the dots because there are not enough hours in the day to try and keep up.

Re: Video Games!

Games are services now. You won't buy/license games anymore, you will use freemium or subscription game services.

BUT YOU CAN USE THEM IN PORTRAIT MODE SO NOBODY AT WORK CAN TELL!
