The reason the witcher is so meh is because it's totally a MODERN game, it has no gameplay to speak of and is just one giant movie. The witcher is a modern story based game, something close to heavy rain.

If your post was just these first two sentences I would assume that you were being satirical. But based on the rest of what you wrote I guess you're serious. You really think the Witcher is a movie game close to Heavy Rain.

I don't know how you could ever expect anyone to ever take you seriously when you end just about every post this way. You're 36 years old. Maybe it's time to stop acting like a child.

When you fill a post of personal insults, I'm sorry but I'm not going to sugar coat a reply. You're not a bad guy Seph, I don't often agree with your views but at the least you're generally not a dick about it.

Thanks I guess. But didn't your parents or anyone else ever explain the concept of "being the bigger man" ?

Or at least phrase your insults in a way that doesn't sound like the 5th grade bully.

Where'd that weird "Korea" come from in your Beamer quote Wowbagger?
Hah. I have no idea. Managing quotes and stuff is a PITA when I'm posting from my phone. Can't imagine where that word came from though.

Yeah I try to avoid posting from my phone because it's extremely frustrating. But one strategy I have, while at work when Bluesnews is blocked, is the chrome-to-phone extension/app. I type my whole post in a textbox on a site that's not blocked, select the text, and on a context menu select "Chrome to Phone" and then it appears on my phone clipboard and I can paste it here.

You're moving the goalpost, now it's only CEO's don't get fired, a minute ago it was no one in business ever gets fired.

No, no I am not. I am using CEOs as examples because they are high profile and it's easy to look at them - Johnny QA being fired never makes headlines.

But, to your point, in my first paragraph I say "President and VP," neither of whom are CEOs, and in my second paragraph I say "People," who certainly aren't CEOs.

Only my second to last sentence says "CEO." It isn't my fault you can't read and project that to all the lines you read before.

The reason they don't say fired is because they step down to save face, it's the same thing, if the share holders want a change, a change they get. Share holders being people, like you and me.

Lol. Most shareholders have little power over consequences for a CEO. They may step down after a major fuckup, but they're still gonna get paid tens of millions on the way out.

Because their contracts say that I'd imagine. Shareholders have more power than you think however.

When, in the last 40 years, has a change been brought about by shareholders other than someone with 5% or more of the company?
It does not happen.

Your belief in shareholder power is antiquated and naïve. Only a very small amount of shareholders have any power, and these days it's almost exclusively fund managers. Most companies are somewhere between 15% and 33% fund held. Those funds hold power. The hundreds of thousands of other shareholders have no power at all relative to them (interestingly, do you know how tiny a portion of Americans hold any stock at all?)

Much like my believe in the Constitution right? Naive and antiquated?

He's going to say something about ducks now and that will clear the whole thing up.

It must be terrible for you watching this mess unfold and knowing in the back of your mind the opponents of Obamacare were right.

You should clarify what you mean by "right".
It's had a horrible roll out (though working for a private company making public software I didn't expect it to be good anyway) but I still support it. I really hope you were right about Republicans (bizarrely) wanting single-payer now because I do too. But I suspect that was just some crazy talk and what they really want of course is to defund and dismantle the entire reform, I of course do not support that.

/Instead of your folksy duck saying you went with a folksy one about spades. I can't wait for what's next.

Right about it costing more? Right about people losing their plans?
I still think regulation is the only way to attempt to fix the healthcare system if at all, not government mandates ala obamacare.

It costs more for some and less for others. There were people who thought this was supposed to cost less for everyone? Over the long run it should keep costs down (in comparison to pre-ACA increase) for everyone. The goal was to get health insurance to be affordable for people not poor enough for medicare but not provided insurance from their company or not wealthy enough to buy their own. The other goal was to make tons of improvements to healthcare that the industry wouldn't do on its own. Some of the big ones were "can't be denied or revoked for pre-existing conditions", 80% of intake must go to insurees health, can stay on parents plan until 26, coverage must include *, etc.. Based on your (strange) admission that you're for regulation, I assume you like those reforms and just don't like that we're being forced to buy-in? Well that mandate was the only way to get enough money for those reforms to work and as you know it's based on Romneycare and is good for big-insurance and medical. Single-payer would probably cost more tax dollars and be bad for big business because the government could negotiate lower prices and compete with private plans which would also have to drop prices in response.

Sebelius just admitted "adequate" testing was never done before launch. She also admits they don't know the enrollment numbers because the system isn't working. Minutes earlier she said it never crashed and was functioning. Yeah, Obama will be accepting her resignation before the end of the year.

She probably should resign or be fired but unfortunately I don't think that can happen. If she's out, congress will need to approve of the new appointee and the republicans will likely block all appointees because that's how they do. I'm not sure when the next time a recess appointment can be made but if that's the route Obama takes they'll rant and rave about that too of course.

Do meteors have some sort of propulsion system I'm not aware of?

Yes. We are talking about the debris of planets and moons here, which themselves are orbiting a star or traveling through space at VERY fast speeds. It's not like a meteor just falls from the sky. Rather, a meteor will typically be traveling at tens of kilometers per second when it enters the atmosphere. Yes, it will have slowed down substantially by the time it hits the earth, but compared to an object starting with zero vertical velocity that falls to earth, i.e. a bomb, a meteor is a formula one race car, compared to the bomb's one-speed bicycle.

edit: a Google search says that meteors are typically going between 25,000 - 160,000 mph. Meanwhile, terminal velocity varies by object and atmospheric conditions, but realistically you're only looking at a several hundred miles per hour at most. Perhaps I should amend my analogy to supersonic jet versus one-speed bicycle.

I guess I was being a smartass because it's still gravity even though you made it sound like it wasn't.

As for an impact crater, you're seriously going to tell me that the force of gravity on an object the size of a refrigerator would make a football field sized impact crater that is a half dozen stories deep? Seriously? Unexploded ordinance tends to bury itself deep in the ground, so the half-dozen stories down part isn't implausible, but unless the thing goes off, there isn't going to be a crater. A meteor leaves an impact crater, sure, but then it's going many, many times faster than an object being affected by gravity, now isn't it?

Obama administration knew millions could not keep their health insurance

"50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a “cancellation” letter or the equivalent over the next year because their existing policies don’t meet the standards mandated by the new health care law. One expert predicts that number could reach as high as 80 percent. And all say that many of those forced to buy pricier new policies will experience “sticker shock.”"

They will apparently be getting "better" insurance but it will most likely cost more if they aren't eligible for subsidies. I guess the "you can keep your insurance" mostly applied to the majority of the insured who got theirs through their employers assuming their employers didn't dick them over and drop coverage to save some bucks.

It illustrates the problem of trying to pitch things using simple sound bites. "If you like your health plan, you will be able to keep your health plan... assuming it meets all the requirements imposed by Obamacare or has not changed in any significant ways since March 23, 2010” just isn't as catchy.

edit: I've just realized that this will be considered giving Obama a pass unless I call him a name so... <shakefist> Damn that Obozo lied!

edit2: Went to look at links from Mad Max and see that he pretty much posted this same one. It was sandwiched between some other more sensationalized articles so I missed it. Credit where credit due.
