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 Wistrom’s art playfully epitomized post-apocalyptic Seattle. But increasingly, the city’s likely doom appears much less fantastic and closer: an unaffordable traffic-filled metropolis dominated by white males and devoid of independent culture — 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?!"

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.

I purchased Space Hulk the day it was released and have played for over 80 hours

Nice to see the devs of this game make an appearance here in Blues.

When I first saw this meme, I tried that on Bing to see what would happen, and "Xbox One is amazing" was the 6th choice on the drop down.

Okay, maybe things have changed, so I loaded up IE (gah) and tried it again.

  • "Xbox One is terrible"

  • "Xbox One is going to fail"

  • "Xbox One is ugly"

  • "Xbox One is watching you"

  • "Xbox One is bad"

  • "Xbox One is crap"

  • "Xbox One is doomed"

  • "Xbox One is stupid"


  • While I agree with every statement above, this looks like it's just some good ol' fashioned anti-Microsoft muckraking.

    EDIT: I do have ad-block running, so I don't know if that's making a difference or not.

    Really, going after Rachel Maddow? ... Why, because she just happens to be gay and would like the same rights afforded her family as any other citizen of her country?

    I would like to point out that the only person to actually bring up the gay thing is you. Apparently, you feel that her sexuality is important. Why is that?

    Faux news is apt. Making shit up to support your extremist position isn't news, it's fiction, and bad fiction at that. It's there to pander to bigots and racists, period.

    Fast and Furious: Not even an Obama program. Why are you bringing this up? You honestly think the DOJ is going to suddenly stop doing stupid stuff under a new president?

    Funny, that's exactly what Obama was saying, right up to the point where he invoked Executive Privilege to prevent Congress from getting the paper trail between him and Holder regarding the release of thousands of military-grade weapons to the Mexican drug cartels and the murders of over 300 Mexican citizens and two Federal agents.

    So, which is it? Was Obama lying then, or is he lying now?
