This is one of the thing that cracks me up about Windows. "Would you like to update the updater so you can download updates for your updates?"

These are also the true bible thumpers that rake us over the coals trying to decipher the old testament which is in general trumped by the much more peacful and liberal new testament. You stop judging us and let God judge us.

A big ole fat THIS!

What chaps my ass to no end is that these mouth breathing fuckwits allegedly read the Bible but understand NONE of it! Christ literally says "This is the new and everlasting covenant". Anyone with a half a fucking brain understands that his words not only dismiss the old covenant that Abraham had with God, it completely destroys it! The new covenant is based on a very simple premise, and to say it in modern language, that premise is "Don't be a dick; help out when you can, not when its convenient".

Christ himself says NOTHING explicitly about homosexuality and the only person who goes on and on in the New Testament about it is Paul, and that guy was a raging asshole and misogynist. His own words mark him as someone who, even as a disciple, didn't get it.

It's 2014. I live in the Bible Belt. I grew up in the Bible Belt. Who gives a rat's ass what consenting adult you find love, joy and acceptance within? If I had my way, I'd legally demarcate every religion as both a cult and terrorist organization.

"Playable" being a definition of degrees, I take it?

Technically, Star Citizen is "playable" but it's far from complete.

I know I am in the minority but I thought Dawn of War sucked. I'd just finished Dark Crusade when it came out and much preferred DC.

I'd love to see a successor to DC.

cryengine is being DESTROYED by UE4 in the prefab engine market

If only because UE4 is much, much easier to work with. Epic clearly put more time and effort in to the workflow process to make it easier for first time users to just jump in and start creating, learning as you go.

If you are colorblind don't even bother - just like the original BF Vietnam, us color blind people can't see the bad guys in the brush. Everything is washed out for me.

Thanks for the reply, Bats. I'm not color blind, fortunately, so that's not a concern for me. Just looking for a decent-ish FPS to hold me over until something interesting comes out. Already blitzed through Wolfenstein:NWO.

None of which are in his name.



So? Chevrolet sells a model that's just called the "SS" as well.

Seeing as most of us around here are probably closer to 60 than 20 - or even 30 - what's the big deal?

Shut it gramps, or you'll be pulling landscaping duty.

really? You chose "SS" as your name?

Better call GM and complain to them about the usage, too. The Impala SS, the Camaro SS, Chevelle SS, Malibu SS, Nova SS, the Silverado SS, etc.

SS can also mean "Super Sport" and was made part of the American lexicon in 1961 with the release of the Impala SS. I'd wager that more Americans know SS from GM/Chevrolet than they do from history.

I have Bad Company 2 on the PC and Origin has been shoving the Vietnam expansion in my face, begging me to buy it. Given that Vietnam, along with Korea, is the least used setting for FPSes, I'm kind of intrigued. Has anyone played it? If so, is it good or bad?

I no longer trust game reviews as they're about as objective as Anita Sarkeesian at an FHM photoshoot with the exception of JaguarUSAF's reviews.

Many others before me have, quite eloquently, pointed out just how badly flawed and wrong Anita Sarkeesian's information, thesis and examples are so there's no need to rehash them.

However, at this point, she's doing nothing positive for her crusade against alleged misogyny and sexism. Her methods are inherently no different than that of the Westboro Baptist Church and their methods of communication. They're knee jerk reactionists to a world that has left both parties in the dust and moved on to more meaningful and important issues to society at large.

Yeah but think about it, I'd like to abandonded:

Paying for power and having solar free-installed for me handle the job.

Depending on the size of the installation, there are many local, state and federal rebates and grants in the US that makes this possible as either a very low cost or almost wholly free install. This can be done, people have to stop being lazy asses and get informed about programs available to them in their area and what technology would suit their installation best.

I'd like to abandon my car payment, my mortgage, me cell phone, or at least be a lot less in cost.

All those were costs you, hopefully, went in to with your eyes wide open and accepted them, fully understanding their long term implications. I have no mortgage payment, nor car payment and my cell phone bill is miniscule ($40 with unlimited everything and 4G LTE) compared to my peers and their $100+ cell phone bills. I chose to pre-abandon those costs by hard setting a fixed cost that I would pay out of resources already under my control. This is not difficult for anyone to do, they just need to stop whining about what they allegedly "need" and be financially responsible for the resources under their control.

HorrorScope wrote on Jun 15, 2014, 15:41:
It isn't surprising people want to abandon an expense, but why is it an expense? Because we want what they offer.

Yet not all expenses are "wants" and given the current state of monopoly in most every major utility sector, it's nearly impossible to reduce expenses unless you are willing to do it yourself ala solar, rain catch basins, etc. Are you going to argue that power, water and sewer are "wants"?
