While I agree that N.N. is Marxist, I also believe the duopoly is fascist. Neither are good. Yes, the feds would love to have more regulatory authority over the Internet via Net Neutrality and I don't think much good would come of it. Rather most Federal intervention/regulation would be a string of failed promises that would go unrealized by the public but instead blamed on capitalism and not the failures fascism or marxism.

The most powerful regulator of the Internet should be consumer choice and not government-granted monopolistic consumer-gouging deals.

The very notion that more government control of the Internet would solve it is laughable. We need less, not more. The socialist mindset that is conditioned into children by our school system and TV news by default thinks that whenever government fails we must need more government regulation. Thus our current situation.


No, it fails when it's not good government. Hence the reason it works in socialist-democratic nations. If it wasn't for the government there'd be no internet to speak of in the first place. What planet do you live on?

How's the driving. Arcadey bullshit, like previews have been saying?

Yeah, it's really bad actually. Feels like the car is constantly hydroplaning all over the road. There's no "stick" to it. Loads of people in the forums complaining about it. However, I've tested some higher end cars which are way better. So the problem isn't the physics, it's the game design which is....

Grind for ages for better cars and parts....or buy them with real money. You know where that goes.

There's just a metric shit ton of issues and bad decisions with this game. It was very obviously designed for the console kiddie crowd. Anyone thinking it'd be something cool like Interstate '76 can forget about it. The world itself is pretty nice. I'd be curious to see how accurate the cities are for those who live in them - like Detroit. Scale is way smaller than originally claimed as people have been saying you can drive across the country in about 40 minutes.

If it ends up F2P it might be ok to waste some time on it here and there but paying for any of it as it is? No chance in hell.

Anything that isn't Corporate Capitalism is Marxist. Laws should only exists to protect corporations from the government, private citizens and non-corporate entities. Ferengi Economics at its best.

Just to be clear I don't agree with the American Commitment message at all.

That's not true at all. Corporations doing government services generally do a much worse job because it all comes down to the bottom line and they cut corners everywhere and anywhere. Safety standards, infrastructure, labour laws, etc. etc. etc. are all thanks to government. They're failing now because the corporations have effectively taken over government and are systematically gutting all these things.

You are right - I meant more recently. To give an example I can tell you from experience the new government safety standards in the electrical industry are an absolute joke. It's getting so that it's near impossible to do any work. I wouldn't be surprised to find OSHA in bed with the makers of all this fandangled safety gear we are required to wear.

That's the sort of shit that goes back to private industry. You can thank the insurance companies for that sort of nonsense. They get more and more, you pay more and more, you get less and less.

It's been mild, and downright chilly on a few nights. And damp. Plenty of rain. I haven't even had to water anything because it's been raining so frequently. As someone who loves the heat it's been a pretty meh summer.

Net Neutrality Is 'Marxist,' According to This Koch-Backed Astroturf Group.

I'm usually not too vehement a supporter of either side of an issue anymore, having become largely moderate in my 40's, but wishy-washy is not how I would describe myself. That said, I have rarely been stuck on the fence about an issue as much as I am on Net Neutrality. I hate the idea of un-regulated amoral big corporations having free reign over things, but on the flip-side, I abhor the idea of a corrupt and incompetent government sticking their hands into the internet - they ruin virtually everything they touch.

That's not true at all. Corporations doing government services generally do a much worse job because it all comes down to the bottom line and they cut corners everywhere and anywhere. Safety standards, infrastructure, labour laws, etc. etc. etc. are all thanks to government. They're failing now because the corporations have effectively taken over government and are systematically gutting all these things.

Net-neutrality is Marxist is it? Well so is the military by that rationale so I guess the US will have to dismantle that. And it's an attack on capitalism? The same capitalism that promises competition that results in the best product at the lowest price? That capitalism? The kind that doesn't actually exist because it's really more of a plutocratic oligarchy?

Well, when those sorts of assholes actually get serious about the "free" market then they come talk about what's Marxist and what isn't. Fucking pricks.

That looks like it would be pretty relaxing. Mebbe I'll grab it on a good sale when it's done. I'd love to see something like this done as a 3D CRPG about Atlantis, or maybe something like this just exploring the ruins of Atlantis, The Bermuda Triangle, etc.

Sad Google didn't land Twitch.tv I am scared that Amazon will cause:
1) No chromecast for Twitch!!!!
2) They will reduce the payment to streamers
3) They don't know eSports and we will lose the ability to watch every event through Twitch
4) Twitch ends up becoming a wasteland 3 years down the road due to zero development on the platform
5) Amazon puts up pay walls like Prime or other ways of pushing Amazon.

Good. I like to see corporations waste billions needlessly on these sorts of stupid purchases.. Then someone else will come along and create a new Youtube/Twitch/etc. for 100k and the cycle will repeat itself. If you have to buy an existing business you shouldn't be in business to begin with. You can always do it better, faster, and cheaper yourself. Always.

Do the packs make the base game better? Had some nice potential but the base game itself is pretty weak. Don't know if it's worth the gamble to get the DLC and try again.

Heh, I was kinda bothered by how the glass froze since I'm not sure whether this is actually scientifically possible.
Though I guess not everything has to be absolutely realistic for it to be a simulation (I'm talking about stuff that's known to be true or false, not science fiction things like allegedly ftl travel).

Sure it's possible, it's thermodynamics. That would be condensation from inside the ship as the ship's temperature reaches equilibrium with the space around it. Ever see Apollo 13? Space is cold, man. You can freeze your nips off out there.
