Sorry for your family's loss, Blue.

Could Disney finally give us the remastered, unedited Star Wars we want?

Maybe they should hire Harmy! That guy is my hero right now...

Did you watch Star Wars: Turn to the Dark Side?
It condenses the 3 prequels into a single 2:45. It's pretty amazing how watchable and even better it is. The 1st one is almost gone entirely except for the Darth Maul fight and the Jedi council discussing taking Anakin on as an apprentice (don't even see the kid). You still have to go through most of Hayden and Natalie's terribly written/acted romancing but it has to be there to setup his turn. Seems like most of the third movie is there except for the pointless action at the beginning. Really through out the three most of the removed material is around the pointless Galactic Republic vs. Trade Federation stuff.

Yes I certainly agree with Neocities' right to limit traffic to whomever they want. That's what NN would outlaw which if you think about it is wrong for the government to outlaw how Neocities' right to manage their traffic flow how they want to.

The "Internet" wasn't designed or ever intended to be 'neutral' but rather free for parties to connect *independent* networks. Independent means a network (or ISP) can manage their network as they see fit. The problem of course is if a network has a government-backed monopoly then of course that is the problem right there.

I doubt Net Neutrality won't change much besides embolden the status quo duopoly. The article makes NN seem like the people's savior but it's not. Typical socialist rhetoric that misses the mark in failing to identify the real cause: a widespread lack of competition.


Next time put the "Typical socialist rhetoric" line at the top of your screed, then I can ignore your post completely.

Pretty sure you mean "Typical conservative thetoric" there, bud. The socialists are the ones who think it should be free and available to everyone.

He meant the quote from the start of the last sentence. Put it at the top so the rest of it can more readily identified as deluded "libertarian" ranting. "If only everything was pure capitalism all of our problems would be solved... and unless we make it so there's no need to try any other solutions."

I say destroy the monopolies and enshrine net neutrality.

I once ordered a cable that was labeled as retail. It was really inexpensive so I had my doubts, and when it arrived it was OEM. I mentioned this in a review.

Shortly thereafter I got a phone call (wtf) from the seller pleading with me to change my review, proclaiming I was endangering his livelihood.

Ehm, so basically you complained for getting something of equal quality cheaper? Because that's what you did. There is no physical difference between OEM and RETAIL, but for the seller you mentioning this in amazon reviews brings up a huge legal issues and potentially blacklisting from Amazon store.

Also, it's pretty weird customer behavior to complain about that.. considering the seller saved you actual money.

Are you trollin? If it says retail package then it better be a retail package not some shit in a ziplock bag.

Why is he in so much trouble with the NBA for this and not for denying housing on racial grounds? That's much, much worse.

Why. Two parts all sponsorship was leaving, has left. But even bigger than that and that is plenty big is the players were organizing a walk out. That forced immediate action.

Why didn't the sponsors walk after the earlier case? Why didn't player protest earlier? I understand the NBA's position, they had to act now because the fact of the matter is that their brand was being hurt by the negative publicity - but why wasn't there as big an outcry earlier? Was it just that the reference to going to games brought the NBA into it?

Why was the NAACP giving him a civil rights award? The answer is clear: Money. People have been turning a blind eye on Sterling's bigotry because he donates to Democrats and the NAACP. Their LA chapter's president just resigned to avoid having to answer for such hypocrisy. Nowadays the mainstream and social media is so obsessed with racism nothing else matters.

I think him resigning was answering for the hypocrisy (or however that should be worded for you). It's not like they would hold some sort of tribunal or something. He either resigns or is fired in response to public pressure. It's the same thing happening with Sterling... he should also resign or be fired.

How they sold it as a talking point was with the public knowing, there would be things like ongoing jokes about "How does your piss water taste today", so with that, that is why they'd throw logic and money out the door.

Instead of saying, it is open air, contaminates get into it constantly, we refine whatever is in there before it ever comes out of your tap. That to me would be Hello? and end of story.

Sort of what I still feel the gov't should still do... just say anything you put in public on your computer is looked at as public record. Then we all know the score etc and can move on. Now it's going to be lie to us and still do the same thing.

We're talking about a city that won't fluoridate their water. Portland is full of crazy woo.

Why would they want to dump toxic shit into the water?

To make you a mindless drone of the government, unable to perceive your mind imprisonment. Uhoh

Fun game but talk about a lot of horseshit to get multiplayer off the ground.

Huh? This is supposed to get rid of the "horseshit to get multiplayer off the ground". Like NKD mentioned, the better option for anyone technically inclined is to run your own server, as it always is when privately operated dedicated servers are possible. But if you're 10 years old asking Mom and Dad to setup a Minecraft server so you can play with your friends this is the much easier option.

Is there a hardcore mode? You know like how it used to be with GTA games, you get arrested or killed by cops and its game over. (Well at least until you reload).

GTA games have had the same death mechanic in all iterations, including the 2D ones. You get arrested you appear outside the police station, you die you appear outside the hospital.

It used to be that being arrested made the cops take away all your weapons, but I don't think they do that anymore in GTA5? I never get arrested, so I'm actually not even sure.

If you want a hardcore mode, just restart after you die/get arrested. Dead is Dead is an extremely fun way to play some games. (There was a huge DiD community for X3, it was pretty cool to read some of their stories.)

Yeah I personally always reload after I die in GTA... You don't ever get anything special for having that stat screen at 0 deaths but I did it anyway... Except GTA 5 since they screwed me over. Sometimes dying on a mission would reload the mission and I'd still have 0 deaths stat, but other times it would add a death. I wasn't paying attention and got a few and didn't have a good point to load from.

Some people just have way too much goddamned time and money on their hands. And to think several million people a year die of hunger and hunger releated illness and millions more to poverty in general. The species is doomed.


Just think of all the good you could have done in the time you wasted on this post, you hypocrite. You could have signed a dozen online petitions, undoubtedly saving millions. You're a MONSTER!

Clearly someone needs to explain to you what "degrees" means.

/me ctrl-f degrees

Hmm, in that context yes, somebody should explain what you mean by "degrees".

It's all kind of pointless. These are the shows and episodes you can already buy on DVD. What I really want is the stuff that's currently on TV. Day-of, day-after, week-after... That'd all be fine with me but this is three years. Who cares.

If you've fallen through the world does that mean it happens to everyone?

No!

Okay... then.

You're building a straw man argument. He never said it happened to everyone, just that it happened to him, multiple times, and therefore he didn't like the game. You countered that with a tone of "Well, it never happens to me, so it's an invalid argument."

It's a very, very, very, very, very, very, very often heard argument in PC gaming, and it's a terribly boring one. Be glad you didn't suffer from the issue. Other people are.

You're building a straw man argument. He never said it happened to no one, just that it didn't happen to him, multiple times, and he likes the game.

Buyer beware.

Kinda weird that someone would make a 6 minute video trashing a crap game and a shady developer. You could do that for the rest of your life and still not hit all of them.

It's impossible to capture the Oculus Rift experience on video.
So yeah, watching people use them is pretty lame.

Though watching old people use it is pretty entertaining.

As is watching people stand up on the roller coaster demo.
