Everyone talking about how they're better than the shriveled pansy-men who don't shoot

Dreaming of some type of civilization breakdown. But reality will be they will die in a bed of old age hanging on to their last breath. This happened recently and from reports I've heard this man wasn't arrested. He's lucky he's not black or he would have been shot.

Hand on gun AND an AK on the other shoulder.

This analysis by statistician Nate Silver says it all:

  • For whites in America, murder rates are comparable to Finland.

  • For blacks in America, murder rates are comparable to Rwanda.

  • Blacks have a nearly 8 times greater chance of being murdered than whites.

    I liked TRON but I can also see where a lot of people wouldn't get it or like it on their own.



    I enjoyed Tron Legacy, and my kids really did. My son grabs the frisbees often asking to "Play Tron." Bummer there won't be another. So much potential for creativity.

    Most snakes I've had is 26.
    Knew a fellow who averaged about 600 in his apartment, and at breeding time, 6000.
    His super announced a surprise inspection during hatching season one year and he had to move the whole thing up two flights to a friends place
    edit: typo fixed

    Yeah, always had a snake in the pet mix growing up. Had a ball python for many years, and they're the coolest things, used to being handled and cuddling up to your warmth. And so smooth and muscular to the touch, they are magnificent creatures.

    I haven't KS'd anything in a long time, but I'll make an exception for this one.

    If this makes millions, maybe it will inspire someone to make a proper Mechwarrior sequel, with moddable mechs and single player campaign.

    Isn't this the game where at first they were doing all these Unreal Tournament style "headshot" announcements and stuff? But then I thought they got so much negative feedback that they removed it all?

    Also, are there patches out there that "fix" what's overly consoly about this game?

    Rowdy Roddy Piper died? Damn, They Live is one of my favorite movies all time, and he was great in that. He was also pretty damned awesome in his few appearances on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia... an underrated actor for sure. I have never been into pro wrestling but I always respected their athletic ability. It must be a ton of damage to the body though.


    *EDIT* Typo.

    We lost Dusty Rhodes a couple months ago too. Seems that wrestlers pass on younger than average, sadly.

    There have been a lot of the more famous ones that have died young: Randy Savage, Andy "Test" Martin, Ravishing Rick Rude, Junkyard Dog, Brian Adams of Demolition, Chris Benoit, and a whole lot of others. As someone mentioned between the rigors of the performance and all the drugs they do to add muscle, it takes a toll.

    Windows 10 upgrade resets your default browser to Edge; Mozilla is very unhappy.

    Heh, that's small potatoes compared to what they'd do a decade ago.

    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.
