In case it wasn't clear, I was specifically referring to Idiocracy the film not an actual type of government. And the US has been in the hands of the rich for a long time now. Most of the founding fathers weren't exactly 'till the field' farmers.

I worry though man, I see kids head down in the phone walking into traffic and other stupid shit like that almost every day. Change is fine but I wonder if being so disengaged socially and lacking that personal component that you only get face to face is really a good thing for people.
Yeah, on the one hand the curmudgeon in me wants to hail it has the down fall of society. But I know older people have been saying that about youth for centuries if not millenniums -- so, I try not to take it too seriously and just hope/assume it will work out. I don't think we're headed for "Idiocracy" yet..

PoE does get bonus points for allowing me to buy as many stash tabs as I want.

I'll probably go back to PoE at some point I'm sure, but right now D3 has my attention.

It's going to be interesting when our daughter reaches the early teens, I think I'll make her buy and pay for it herself along with the monthly fees to hopefully forestall the addiction as long as possible.
My niece will be 12 in August and has been lobbying my sister and her husband for a phone for a long time already. Basically, she is one of the few kids in her class that doesn't have one. But she does have other electronic devices including a Kindle and her own computer -- which sits in the same space as her parent's computers. But she also does ballet, soccer and softball (although I think ballet may have displaced softball). It is definitely a parenting thing.. you need to get them doing something other than looking at a monitor of some kind.

At the risk of being called a troll myself, I'll say the guy trolling on the article about trolling is partly -- PARTLY right. He obviously stretches his argument/point past reasonable limits, but there is some value in remembering the child's chant of "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me." Too many people are way too sensitive these days, especially on-line.

I've said for years how it always amazed me how quickly so many people got so mad if you insulted their mother. Really? Like I ever met your mother? And I've always enjoyed the idiot who would say, "What? Are you a fag?" My response, generally was always, "Why? You looking for a date?"

Bullying on-line and IRL are real problems. And sometimes just walking away or ignoring it is a solution. But sometimes it goes past that level -- that's where we need to focus our attention.

so they fixed the game 2 years after release? TIME TO PARTY!
Looks like you are trolling to me, but you did get this right. They did fix it after nearly two years. I wanted D3 to be great, but until loot 2.0 it was merely okay -- not sufficient to motivate me past the silly on-line requirement. Now I've been playing since two weeks prior to RoS and it has been a blast.

Yes, it gets somewhat repetitive in the "end game" -- but Diablo games have always been like this.

Lesson learned by Ukraine: if you have nukes, don't give them up.
You are not the first to say that, but I don't really think it would have changed anything.

The frequency of legendary items is so low a 100% increase really isn't THAT significant. Still, I'll take it, finding 2-4 an hour instead of 1-2 an hour will be nice.

The RoRG isn't too bad I find, I usually just run split bounties on Normal for an hour or two until I have a full stash tab of caches then make a private game, cash them all and spend 5 mins picking up all the loot. I've yet to do this on a character and not have the ring sitting there amongst the piles. It would really suck to get disconnected there though. It's not always a well rolled ring but oh well.
The drop chance is the same in Normal as in Torment? That's a bit disappointing. Guess that's what I need to start doing...

Wewt! Was just reading about how we can get rid of the generic armor items needed for crafting now (as they now use mats instead).
Yeah that was nice, gave me back an entire tab on my stash... I still want to be able to buy more tabs though.

On the bounce house blowing away -- did they fill it with hot air or something? Helium? Seems like part of the story is missing... I could believe one of those things would tumble along the ground bouncing up a few feet here and there, but fly away?

You know, on the one hand it seems a terribly unfortunate way to die. But on the other hand, if I'm healthy enough at 74 to be using stairs, I'll be pretty happy. There are certainly lots of much worse ways to die...

Slightly disappointing to find out I was as clueless as most about the "hot coffee lawsuit" -- not sure who deserves more credit, poor journalism or great PR.

That would be somewhere between interesting and amusing. I'm sure there are many who would love to get access to the code base just to see "what the hell XP was really doing".

Well, if you don't want people calling you Walter, I suggest you don't use WalterEgo as your handle/nickname.
