Zimbabwe wants US to extradite Palmer for killing Cecil

Good stuff. Get his ass on a plane already!

And just because it was interesting and I did not know this about most of these athletes.

10 Athletes You Didnít Know Are Vegetarian or Vegan

And some general NFL news as pre-season is almost upon us! Just over a month until teh regular footballs season is upon us! Yay!

NFL News

Venus went vegan due to an autoimmune illness, and Serena did the same in support of her sister. Wonder what she's eating to build these guns. Probably a ton of legumes, nuts, seeds, and tofu?

Things I check or click on most on the left nav menu:
- Popular Threads
- Discussion Forums
- Submit News
- User Settings

Also, I've increased the default text size on my 1080P Galaxy 4 to read Blues, and while the text scales, the post titles do not. Just something to consider while you're implementing a semi-responsive design.

Lastly, a lot of websites will keep their left nav, but if someone increases the text size enough, the left nav will be pushed to the bottom, so it's still usable and accessible on a phone.

blah...blah...blah...we can't murder everyone responsible unless you want to revert evolution entirely.

If being evolved means shooting, letting an animal suffer, beheading and skinning animals for fun...then we're not evolved at all. It would be an evolution to give the dentist the exact same penalty that he inflicted. And it would stop this type of thing going on next time.

But some people are too soft for that.

I don't believe in capital punishment, but I agree that the penalties for killing any animal unnecessarily are far too lenient. Penalties need to be much closer to manslaughter IMO.

Also, trophy hunting in general needs to be prohibited worldwide, with vast swaths of megafauna put on the no-kill list.

I had an iguana for many years and it was very friendly. It came when I called it and would climb up onto my shoulder. It would also lay on my while I sat on the couch. They can be very good pets when raised properly.

Here's a lizard that's very friendly.

I don't blame Buddy. He belongs to a young man who was just a little kid when they got him, and afraid to pick him up, so Buddy never got used to being handled. If he was, I'm not sure he'd have let me pick him up, but I doubt he would have been so determined to bite me.

We have geckos where I live. If you catch them, they bite with their little toothless mouths. It tickles. The geckos are great by the way. Eat bugs by the ton.

Yeah, this game is fun, intense, and addictive. The aforementioned 5 minute game length also makes it a good game to hop in and out of if your time is limited. It is just a matter of whether you have the willpower to quit after one game. Or two, or three, etc. There have been multiple times when I have turned on the PS4 intending to play something else, decide to have a quick game of RL first, and never end up playing the game I originally meant to play.

Also, I read a quote somewhere from the developers about the PS+ deal. They had no intention of having it show up on PS+. Sony came to them with an offer and they turned it down. Soon after that, Sony came back with "an offer we couldn't refuse." Developers are paid per download for PS+ titles, so I imagine they are getting good money from this, plus it got their game in front of millions of gamers that may not have given it a chance if it wasn't free. I am one of those people. I wouldn't have paid $20 for it before I played it, but now that I have, I feel it is a good value at that price point. I plan on throwing 4 bucks at them for the DLC just to further support the developers, and I am sure many other PS+ users will feel the same way.

Allen 'Pyroman' Cook of the GWJ podcast, who already owned the PC version of RL, bought a PS4 so he could DL the free RL and play with his PS4 friends. I'm sure he wasn't the only one. Sony is probably paying a fortune for it, but it's paying dividends.

Are there any articles/#'s out there with how many people they feel stream games in their own house? I know I could do it, but I just always conclude I rather just play it natively for the best overall experience.

I stream and glad Steam supports it. Game machine is in the living room and if wife is watching the tv I stream to the office machine. Works perfectly for that with almost no artifacts or latency. Admittedly not playing many FPSs these days.

Hope they extradite that prick!

That lion killer is a real standup hunter. From the article:

Palmer in 2008 pleaded guilty to making false statements to U.S. wildlife officials about a black bear he had fatally shot in western Wisconsin.

From the other article:

Cecil had been closely studied by researchers at the University of Oxford since 2008 as part of efforts to study a decline in Africaís lion population and to better understand the threats the animals face.

Well, I guess they learned what one of the main threats to a healthy lion population is.

I'm not the brightest crayon in the box, but when the fucking government says 'Hey.. we have this mandatory evacuation thing going on, and you REALLY might want to get out' then I'm getting out. I don't care if I have to walk out.

Unless you don't trust the government and think it's all an evil plot to round up citizens into FEMA concentration camps for processing and extermination. A sizable amount of the population believe this, and higher than average in FL for sure.

The name is pretty stupid, but they look like they're really going for that Crimson Skies feel. Has potential, even if that video has way too much time acceleration on it. It's almost as if at the dev shop, the production manager said, "Hey intern, come up with a game play demo we can put on youtube." and the kid came up with 40 mins of footage. Instead of redoing it, they just speed ramped it to cut it down to 4m.

Bored of a lifestyle of plentiful holidays and late night boozing sessions with Mark, Chris has decided to put everyone under pressure and commit to a launch in October of this year.

Heh, Introversion is one of the harder working devs in the industry, and one of the few independent dev shops left.

Introversion surely knows the difference between an alpha and a beta, and should do their part to not cause people to start using them as synonyms.

Updated key to game development terms:

  • Pre-Alpha = Alpha

  • Alpha = Pre Beta

  • Beta = Beta

  • Release version = Public Beta

  • There you go. And finally:

  • Game of the Year Edition = Release version

  • I would add one more. Here's the complete list:

  • Pre-Alpha = Alpha

  • Alpha = Pre Beta

  • Beta = Beta

  • Public Beta = Marketing demo

  • Release version = Public Beta

  • Game of the Year Edition = Release version

    Jeez, 5M? I have this on my wish list for the local coop with the kids play that it offers, but I didn't think they'd sell 5M. I thought it was more niche than that. Good on them.

    One of the first PC games I played, besides ample Sierra adventure games, was BattleTech: The Crescent Hawk's Inception. pew pew lasers!

    Played the shit out of that game.

    Also, still have my MW2 and MW2: Mercs disks. Might be time to load them up, although I know they've not aged well. Still, there's nothing like the old MW games out there.

    Florida teacher who had sex with three teens sentenced to 22 years in prison

    Seriously America, what the fuck?! That's some of the craziest shit I've ever heard.

    Pedophiles go to jail there unlike in Canada.

    I remember reading a story years ago about a man in Quebec who sodomized his daughters, 14 and 16. The judge let him off with probation (IIRC) because he had preserved the girl's "virginity" since he'd only used the "back door." It was such a major WTF story that I still recall it and remain baffled. Those poor girls are f'd for life emotionally.

    That is truly sick, however it has nothing to do with this story. This (very hot) teacher had a relationship with her 17 year old student. While that is indeed poor judgement and grounds for dismisal, there is no way that this was in any way abuse or should it warrant a 20 year jail sentence. It's fucking insane is what it is...this was a consensual relationship.


    Oh, I totally agree. However, someone mentioned "unlike in Canada" so I related a story illustrating that.
