Because we're sick and tired of the stupidity of religious kooks. We're fed up that we can't have nice things because of them. If it weren't for religious assholes we'd already be livig in a Trekian paradise by now.

Trekian Paradise? The only thing holding back humanity from utopia is religion?

Riiiight.

I consider myself agnostic, but Yeahyeah has a point. Somebody mentions God in a partially positive context and militant atheists freak the fuck out. It's almost Pavlovian in your response.

My eyes skipped over the "Assassin's Creed" part and I originally just read "Syndicate". My first thought was "Oh, cool, they're bringing Syndicate back!"

Then I read the headline again and disappointment set in.

So Memorial Day is for US soldiers and Veterans Day is for all soldiers? How odd.

Memorial Day is for US veterans who lost their lives in the line of duty.

Veterans Day is for US veterans in general.

I will summarize this article in one sentence: "Amazon is bringing too many white males into Seattle. We find this unacceptable."

So, yeah, it's basically one long racist and sexist rant.

I almost didn't respond because that was pretty idiotic. That was nto what the article was saying.

Then why did the article go on, at some length, about the racial and gender make-up of the people moving into the area? In the very first paragraph, even. Apparently the writer thought it was pretty important.

When I arrived in Seattle in 1991, Tim Wistromís art playfully epitomized post-apocalyptic Seattle. But increasingly, the cityís likely doom appears much less fantastic and closer: an unaffordable traffic-filled metropolis dominated by white males and devoid of independent culture ó fueled by Amazon.

Well, the Warp in the WH40K universe is a pretty unpredictable method of travel. All sorts of weirdness is to be expected.

Navigation Officer: "Sir! Warp jump completed. Uh, we've only traveled two hundred meters forward."
Captain: "By the Emperor's testicles..."
Navigation Officer: "And... two hundred years back in time."

I gave up Law Enforcement and went into corporate private security. The pay is much better and I no longer have to worry about some shitheel sucker-punching me. My wife sleeps better at night, too.

To be honest thought, I decided it was time to get out when I caught myself growing more and more bitter and cynical. And I was getting tired of the hate. Both directed at me (for being a cop) and by my fellow cops. There are some fucked up people in Law Enforcement and I honestly didn't want to be part of that anymore.

Also, getting called a racist 24/7 was getting old, too.

Clearly beremots now is going to have PTSD and need such a service as Zoe Quinn is going to provide. When I think of services in context with Zoe Quinn, it's not counseling that comes to mind...

I always just assumed that beremot was just a sockpuppet of Zoe Quinn anyway.

You think it would just be a matter of turning off the cooling and disabling the thermal auto-shutdown.

"Mother! I've turned the cooling units back on! MOTHER?!"

"The option to override has expired. This chip will self-destruct in T minus... five minutes."

Really looking forward to this, doubt I will preorder it though.

During one of the recent Black Friday episodes, they riffed on pre-orders, with Cartman saying (paraphrased) "Only fools put in pre-orders for a video game. Because you're committing to something which keeps getting delayed and will probably suck ass."

He may also have been a victim of entrapment. That is when agencies like the FBI hire 'informants' and actually goad people into doing something they would otherwise never do, and thus entrap them.

But you're right about entrapment. Apparently he was goaded into hacking Stratfor by an FBI informant.

I think you're confused on what "entrapment" is. It doesn't matter one wit that the FBI "goaded" him into it. He still knew what he was doing was wrong.

Entrapment is when law enforcement prosecutes you for committing a crime after convincing you that it's not actually a crime to begin with. Very basic example:

Cop: "You know, you don't have to stop at red lights anymore."
Citizen: "Really?"
Cop: "Yeah, the Supreme Court ruled that red lights are unconstitutional."
Citizen: "Great! Thanks!" (drives through red light)
Cop: (pulls over citizen and gives him a ticket)

That's entrapment.
