Everything that happens in the FCC is pure politics. They are all trying to get their names up in lights. As soon as the vote takes place, should they vote to slap 322 pages of rules on the ISPs, the lawsuits will fly--and the FCC will end up back in court, where they lost the last time they tried this.

The courts have already stated that the FCC has the authority to use Title II, and the telcoms have already accepted (with mobile etc) that the FCC has the authority to use Title II, so I'm not so sure that they'd lose.

Of course AT&T/Verizon and their ilk will sue, because they have lawyers on retainer anyway, so it doesn't really cost anything, and any single rule they can get overturned is of benefit to them, but I wouldn't be so sure that the courts will vote against the FCC.

In any case, fuck these republican assclowns who are trying to shoot down Net Neutrality. Miserable fucking bribed shysters.

Sadly I don't think there is much we can do about it anymore

Not with today's technology, at least not without an absolute world economy-shattering cost, but I'm pretty sure that eventually some form of nanotech will come to the rescue.

Here's a prediction for 2.5m by 2040. Here's another for 2 feet by 2040. These are on the extreme end, but even a 1 foot rise would wipe out the beaches via erosion.

2.5m, hahahaha. By 2040! Those guys need to put down the crackpipe, holy shit. That's completely fucking insane.

Let's put it this way, the Dutch, only the world's foremost water management experts, have an average sea-level-rise scenario of 35-60cm, a bad scenario of 40-85cm and a worst case scenario of 120cm. By the year 2100. And those numbers also take into account ground level sinking, which they predict to be ~ 10cm by 2050.

Source

They have already put plans in motion that will allow them to basically raise the water management height level (ie, banks on rivers, dikes, dunes etc) by 60cm by 2050 which is basically the worst case scenario.

2.5m, what the fuck...

in my new genesis coupe =DDDD

Ooooh, you got it? How is it?

so much fun. i got the 2.0 turbo. 'only' 274 hp compared to the 348 of the 3.8, but slightly better mpg. and it makes a really nice exhaust noise. not the gurgle-gurgle of a big v8 that i was never a fan of, but that low constant rumble like distant thunder. needless to say, nobody beats me off the line at the onramp meter light anymore =D

Cool, glad you're enjoying it. If you live nearby, I'd be happy to test that onramp challenge.

I am not sure if you guys are being sarcastic or not?

No, BK looked like a fun game, so I hope these guys actually do well with the successor. Whether they can pull it off with just 6 guys, who knows.

970 has problems kids...Nvidia lied and is abusing their market power with high prices/hobbled products.
They don't give a fuck.
This sums it up pretty well.

I can't stop watching that video. It's hilarious. The guy's squealing laughter is so infectious

Minimum requirements are dual core whereas recommended are quad core, and they also have 6GB and 64 bit in recommended, so I'd guess it'll be okay.

Currently available on GMG with a 20% coupon: KNQFY9-4UP2WZ-VNNQ7Z

I love how Russia is the new/old 'bad guy' once again in Western Media.

Yeah, no, we should all fucking sing Russia's praises right now. Any time some cocksucker threatens nuclear war is just a fantastic time for everyone.

Didn't you miss the Cold War? I know I sure did. I'm glad Putin is taking us back to those days!

wfunder. The site you create to steal money from naive people when your project gets kicked off of kickstarter. :p

I seriously doubt any of that $16182 was actually given by anyone. It's just money "donated" by those asshats themselves to make it appear as if their shitty website is legit.

This entire "game" is literally nothing but a blatant attempt at theft. They will never actually produce a single line of code, or, for that matter, ever even turn on a computer with the intention of doing any kind of work for this "game."

"I take the point that some of the pledges should have been met, and that we should have taken the time to work on them."

Congratulations on stealing 800,000 dollars, Molyneeeueueuxuxuxusu, you miserable fuck.

Then again, I'm sorry, anyone who gave money to Peter Fucking Molyfuck deserved to have it blow up in their face.

The unity engine concerns me a little bit though. Everything runs on a single core

Is that confirmed for Skylines? Unity has been working on going multi-core, as per this thread from Nov 2013.

It looks pretty boring to be honest. A cover shooter loaded with QTEs and scripted sequences. Meh.

You know the committee that designed it spent roughly 10 minutes checking off boxes before they called it "done" and went to lunch.

Eurogamer is "dropping review scores" only in the sense that they are no longer assigning numbers.

Except on Google, where their reviews still get 1 to 5 stars.

I thought this was funny: How should we score an excellent game with severe networking issues? A flawlessly polished game with a hackneyed design? A brilliantly tuned multiplayer experience with dreadful storytelling?
Well, the same way the games media always does it: Based off the size of the publisher's check.

There was a commercial for this during Archer last week and it was hands-down the worst TV spot I've seen for a game. It hardly revealed that it was a game at all.

75 marketing dipshits absorbed $7.5M in salary to come up with that, too.
