Maybe you should actually live in or well-know someone who lived in a socialist country before you announce the wonderfulness of what you believe it is.
All Nordic countries are essentially socialistic democracies.

Oddly enough, they also tend to shine in the quality of life barometers - even your own Newsweek elected one to be the best country to live in in 2011..

Hilarious how out of touch you guys are, seriously.

You should be reading some history books instead of repeating dorm room discussions where you keep saying the same things over and over patting each other on the back.

Name a history book you read.

We'll start with common sense and go from there. If you can comprehend the simple stuff, I may enlighten you.

Here's a start, one even from your beloved liberal cnbc to start:

fairshare?
Fair Share

I admit, I am but a simple minded liberal, but are these history books? I only see online editorials.

You are indeed, my answer to your question was addressed. I'll re-quote it, maybe it'll make sense if its in brainwash form - repeating repeating:

"We'll start with common sense and go from there. If you can comprehend the simple stuff, I may enlighten you."

name a history book plz, i don't understand all of your fancy conservative prose

1. Do you understand that the rich in America pay their far share seph? Read the proof I linked, then answer.

2. I can name dozens.

3. None of it will make sense to you if you cannot comprehend #1.

4. You start. Name something substantial that taught you about socialism, it's history, or its current implementation and affect.

5. It's all socialism with you eh?

6. I was just wondering what history books you've read.

7. Right now I'm reading the The Dark Tower VII. It's taken me forever to get through the series because I read a few chapters before I go to sleep and then I drop my phone on my face.

Anyone here use Google Docs(Drive) exclusively?

My parents need a new device for occasional word processing and spreadsheets and they also want something near the couch for casual internet browsing and Facebook. My mom has been considering the Surface but the price for what you get... I've told her to hold off. She probably expects me to get her a tablet for Christmas, I'm thinking either Nexus 7 or 10.

So Nexus 7 or 10 for the couch and trips.
And either a new laptop or hand-me-down desktop from me for the desk.

Uh, rambling aside, and back to my original question... Do you guys think Google Docs is a sufficient replacement for very occasional home office needs for someone who's only previously used Office?

Honestly I picked up the Nexus 7 (couldn't beat the price), and had no problems with it except that on my HTC One X I have arrow keys and not on the Nexus 7. Runs great, responsive, good battery life, and I primarily use it for looking up stuff while gaming on the couch or pc. It's a bit heavier then I thought it would be. If you are doing word processing and spreadsheets, I'd suggest a Netbook/Laptop over a tablet. But if your looking for casual net browsing and facebook I'd suggest a tablet. I believe Office Depot carries both in store, so might be worth a trip to see what would really work for you size wise.

Yeah they need both I think.

Just wondering if having them ditch Office and possibly Windows altogether might be feasible. Maybe I just get them a light Chromebook since they're using an ancient heavy laptop on the couch already.

Knew about the pledge but didn't know about the guy who created the pledge.
Ah well then...

I was more focused on the knuckleheads signing onto it than who drafted it. Don't get me wrong, I am staunchly against tax increases before some serious waste elimination, efficiency enhancement, and massive spending cuts in government are made, but it just seems stupid to sign a pledge that could, due to unforeseen future political realities, become impossible to adhere to. Now you are an oath-breaker AND a sellout.

Can't disagree with anything there. Hopefully we get some oath breakers or the middle class is looking at a tax increase.

Hooray

Anyone else been having trouble with their visited links and "red stars" behavior here? For the past week or so the site seems to be forgetting I viewed a thread, clearing all the stars, links that I've visited become "new" again and are no longer gray. It doesn't seem to be an issue with the cookie getting deleted because sometimes I'll come back a little later and everything will be back to normal.

The way I usually track threads is a red star and a gray link... Well when both seem to be messing up it's hard to keep track.

Meh, I figured the Texans would win but I was really hoping the Lions would pull it out for once. Thanks a lot, Seph, you jerk! Tell your jerk team to get it together!

From the stands it was a pretty amazing game. The booing from that bullshit touchdown lasted a whole quarter. Shitties of the game were: Schwartz throwing that challenge flag because he was "mad", Pettigrew getting that ball stripped, and Hanson missing that field goal (maybe Schwartz for kicking it on 3rd). I've watched Suh's latest "dirty play" over and over and unlike the rest of the world apparently, I can't see how that's supposed to be intentional.

edit: Really during the game I just kept thinking how shitty the Texans pass coverage must be... For the Lions it was a game more reminiscent of last year before the rest of the NFL figured out how to shut us down.

edit2: Ok over and over (like 3 times) on TV that apparently wasn't in very good quality or I was tired... wtf, just saw it on youtube and yes I see the kick now.

Texting is awesome for times where you don't need the social entanglements a full conversation entails but you do need to quickly give someone information or ask a question. You can also text in many situations where voice calls aren't possible. Sometimes you just don't want to speak to someone but are forced by cirumstance to interact with them.

Texting is unquestionably useful, it's just that people take it too far and communicate almost exclusively through it or do dumb shit like text in the car while driving or in the movie theater. I text all the time and it's rarely frivolous shit about what I had for lunch (stir fry). It's also huge in the business world these days.

Verno how dare you buck the cranky old man theme of this thread.

Well I don't know about you two but I know PHJF is actually playing the game so I'll give him a little credit.

Luckily, since I have yet to play since very early beta, I won't know the difference.

Its gotta be increasingly hard for them to release things on pc at the same time as consoles
I don't think RS has ever bothered to do that since putting GTA on consoles. Its usually about a year later that it makes it to PC.

The stupid thing is that PC gamers are what gave RS their start. The initial GTA games were pretty much PC only. And this is the reward we get.

I played GTA2 on Dreamcast mostly. Still the best console for its time.

Leaving the technical side apart for a bit and talking abt directions...do anyone here really believe a company of such importance as MS and products of such importance as OS s for world computers are NOT related to "National Security" bs and intelligence services ?
They do all according to the requirements of the said "services" to control completely and easy so each new version of an OS gives more control, same with clouds and so on... Remember the mobile phones have keys to access anything from outside, thats one reason why it was financed the fast and cheap distribution all over the world...

If you still believe ppl like Gates, Jobs, Dell and more were just "lucky and hardworking intelligent individuals"...think again

Seek help.
