This is a trailer?

Yeah right? And to be honest it looks hideous. For those that bag on games gfx that look quite a bit better than whatever that is being shown.

Really glad I haven't played this shit yet. Gonna be sweet when they're finally done patching one day. No problem though. I got time and lots of games to play until then.

Same.

Even taking it into the realm of the absurd you could argue something like CS has a socially redeeming value in its over-arching motif which is saving innocent people from bad men.

Yeah but I read this and it seems you want to make the connection between real and fantasy at some level. It seems part of you is understanding the difference between the two, but then another part wants to believe there is some connection. It's weak if there is one and unfair to this medium when other mediums have been as gruesome as the mind can think. I'd be on death row a long long time ago if I played out a dark thought, I'd go as far to say ever person on the planet would be.

Did anyone even bother reading the Wired article that clearly explains why people can see it as different colors? It also explains why one person might see it as different colors at different times.

The white balance of the image is off, so your brain has trouble separating the reflecting light from the illuminating light. This is how your brain figures out colors.

The picture of it that looks ambiguous was simply taken with bad white balance settings, and then you are viewing it with completely different white balance settings. Your brain simply doesn't know how to interpret it.

It's extremely likely people who only see it as blue/black in this image have their color temp set "too blue" on their monitor. Blue != white.

The dress is in fact not white, so... come on brain!

Well fuck there goes the mystery. I still have the Everlasting Light, my true go to.

It has to be a gag. I just loaded up the site and now the top dress was white and gold and I scrolled down to the other one which was still blue and black and when I scrolled up again it was blue and black.

That is what a couple have said happened, me as well. But you can just copy past the pic to your own pc and then there is no voodoo, and wouldn't you know it... after a while I see white and gold for a while but if I do something else or even more specifically look at that deep blue and black dress example, then look at the other pic, it starts becoming mid-blue and washed out black.

Came back to my local jpg and it was white and gold again, couldn't see nothing but. When to the site with the real dark blue and black dress. Now looked again and I got the light blue and gold, which that was the first time I saw that. Usually it was white/gold then med blue and a bit washed out black. lol

That was weird. When I first saw the picture, I saw it as White & Gold. Then when I scrolled down to the vote area, and clicked on the start button, it appeared Blue & Black to me. Now it only appears Blue & Black. Either in the vote box image, or the main image. My son only sees it as White & Gold.

Same, it is interesting and I don't see how it can be a hoax, you can get a jpg screenshot of it and exactly what you said happened to me. It seems if I don't look at it for a good while, I will initially see white and gold, but then when I see blue and black then I can't unsee that for that viewing time. Will try for a 3rd time in a few hours.

Why the fuck are these assholes even playing games, or at least games targeted to white males to begin with? I don't watch soap operas, do you hear me bitching about they exclude men as a target audience? And women in porn are victims? They control the fucking industry! And at the end of the day it's fantasy. It's all just pretend. Only really stupid people don't grasp that simple fact.

Remember this when the game Hatred is brought up again. It's all pretend, horror, gruesome, all things movies and lyrics have done for years. I agree. Not saying you have to like anything in particular or not, but we need to respect that this is all make believe. People like dabbling in darker fantasies.

The world will not be a perfect place, it just wasn't meant to be.

But one line with these people being discussed that I repeat. "You give them a name and you give them power", if I have to spell it out to some, that means ignore them and they are as weak as any persons opinion here.

I'm commenting to members here, not the sources of the news.

I tire of the Republicans = Corporate Shill bull snot.

It doesn't matter if there is a (R) or a (D) before your politician's name, they are ALL corporate shills. Welcome to the Crony Corporate Republic, where individual people are ALL second class citizens.

To a point, but I think there are tendencies and Repubs - Big Business go together, denying that is hard to do. So who is against Net Nuet the most? Oh yeah surprise, Repbus and Corps, see the link given above. The repubs are immediately fighting this decision. They have to, they were paid... the most.

Texas one of the top 2 Repub states is all about "Business friendly", again the connection, they sell that angle. California the US's liberal leader is known as not being as friendly towards business, breaking news? Hardly. This doesn't mean Texas hates people and California hates business, they just slant in opposite directions. Texas feels corps need the extra protection, California thinks the people do.

I mean, once you've done Iraq=Al Quaida, and Barack Obama is a muslim terrorist, the birther movement... is "government had nothing to do with the internet" really a bridge too far? i mean, these people are clinically retarded. they need electro shock therapy. they will believe anything, and will fiercely defend big corporation's profits over their own well-being till their last breath.

how do you even start? because i can promise you, that NO ONE in here posting that drivel has been swayed by any bit of truth that has been laid out for them. if anything they've become more entrenched. infact everytime you tell them that "this is a WIN for them" they just shake their heads, understanding too well how deluded we must be, to think that government regulation could EVER do any good. because we live in a world of black and white. and GOVERNMENT = BAD.

And those are the people I named 50-60 posts back. One sucks gov't money for a living even and is still as staunch as one can ever be. I'm of the belief he loves war and it had the controls, it would be WW2 all over again and he doesn't see it. Then he quotes Jesus and the like. It is maddening.

will give your daily two minutes hate against Fox News

What is funny is you can get cuts where Fox anchors fly off the handle and start spewing venom. You go to Cnn or the main broadcasts, they rarely if ever lose their professionalism.

You mention all the things Obama has done and it is shitty it has to be this way. But many posts back there was a piece about the struggles to get anything done. One side says up the other down, black, white. Yes, no. If he used the normal process almost nothing would get done, he was stone walled a lot. The point above was they don't want credit going to the other party if it is a success, the whole goal is to get voted in next time and if you can't do anything lines will be blurred and blame laid. It's ugly, its sad, but the shit Obama has done, if he didn't, we'd have 8 years of nothing. Now you may be against some of the reforms, but not everyone is. Believe me no one, no one is really getting their vision in gov't, and when you watch history of dictatorships, go to bed tonight thinking the best, at least no one side is getting everything, because that is where the bad in history starts. In America even today, if you give it your all, there is success to be had.

Shit no one got a damn thing really, it's a lot of half baked crap.

I'll say this - I really don't want the government in my internet, any more than I wanted the government in my healthcare. That said, the absolutely corrupt and utterly unethical corporations left the government no choice in either case, so I will settle for the lesser of two evils. Corporations in both cases simply would not do the right thing, so they must be made to do the right thing. Don't blame the government for instituting what will turn out to be far from perfect regulations on both the internet and healthcare; rather, blame the corporations for leaving the government no choice by not doing what's right on their own. The money-obsessed douchebags in charge would sell their own mothers for a dime; of course they could not be left to run slipshod over the populace in their blind greed.

Right, big business can't help but go for maximum dollars and any chance to corner a market that they can get. Hence you need gov't there to make some ground rules. It's almost not their fault, what can you expect from highly trained professionals with orders to do just that?

In fantasyland everyone is cool and only takes what they really need, no need for a governing entity. That ain't Earth.

I'm sure you're heading back to the motherland, Russia. I hear communism is making a huge comeback these days. You can stand in line and wait hours for toilet paper again, just like the good old days.

Well at least they have toilet paper. See, when you were working 14 hour days for a pittance you could barely survive on you couldn't afford luxury items like toilet paper. Seriously though, why don't you move to Somalia where you won't have any of the 'burdens' to contend with and you can sink or swim on your own? I mean, it's worked out so well for them hasn't it? I understand Mogadishu is virtual paradise!

Yes, that's what happens when your government prints 17 trillion dollars worth of currency that's not worth the paper it's printed on.
Wait until that 17 trillion dollar bubble bursts. You will be the one without a job. I'm an electrician. I was smart enough to educate myself, so that I wouldn't have to depend on a part time, minimum wage job flipping burgers to support me and my children. I don't need the government to subsidize my life, I'd rather die first, but I guess some people don't mind living like parasites off the Federal Government... go figure.

So your a doomsday prepper, question, do you hope for it all to fall apart for a good solid "I told you so?". I know TV evangelist tells us he's all holy and predicts world wide death to everyone. Schweet!

Being the country with the currency that is the global standard has the luxury to build up a debt like that. If it were to blow up that is a global failure that will be felt world wide. The worlds debt sits in that. If it does go south then the debt becomes trivial any way. To me it's as good fear factor for us to sing kumbaya to. Because if you are 10+ trillion in debt with it still spiraling upward and it is still working, you probably can be a million, billion, trillion in debt and it continues to work to. So we going to live in fear 20 years from now when the levy hasn't broke and we are now 50 trillion? Doesn't there get a point where we say "Ok, it's a huge number, but it seems roughly the same as it ever was".

Yeah, we are all just redneck, uneducated, dooms day preppers. Huuuuurrr. No, I've just been around long enough to see what a festering shithole the USA is turning into.

I doubt that I'll be around when they finally turn off the lights on this for good.

Well you are the one that came out beating their chest. I can hunt, so I can get food, I can survive and all of that. You were the one predicting the collapse. So I don't see it crazy to think I ask the question. Man of the land who thinks it is all going to go to hell, pretty much a doomsday prepper or someone that thinks all that and still isn't prepared, I guess I was giving you credit for preparing for what you think lies ahead. Otherwise you'd be a "Doomsday, oh shit! I should have been a prepper!"

Kind of weird to see the difference of opinions on here and elsewhere. I would have figured this to be a resounding victory but it seems a lot of comments here treat this as 'bad' or 'meh' at best.

People seem to be as passionate about wanting 'net neutrality' as they are suspicious of the government.

I'm fairly confident that everybody posting here is for the basic idea of net neutrality. The main issue is the FCC's definition is over 300 pages long. Nobody knows what was passed, with the exception of the few bullet points Wheeler gave to the media.

It's hard to be passionate one way or another when we really don't know.

If you want to watch one of the best, funny explanations of what we do know about net neutrality, watch John Oliver's explanation.

[url=]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpbOEoRrHyU[/url]

I agree on all 3 accounts.
1. We are passionate about net neutrality, if that helps stop monopolization, allows municipalities to be isp's, if helps lower prices and gives us better performance.

2. And being suspicious of the gov't is no longer a conspiracy theory, that yes the cat is out of the bag we are spied on to an extreme level and they have designs from online to local po po to do it even more.

3. That yes, we feel happy to a point right now, but we don't know what it will actually bring.
