Oh, wait, this is something else.

I can assure you that the government had nothing to do with it's birth,

Interesting, since it was a DoD project that started it. But I'll be generous and assume you were speaking of the World Wide Web, which was invented so that CERN scientists could have a place to put their documentation and findings without having to email one another all the different copies. However, CERN is a (European) government funded organization, and Vince Cerf was definitely on the European government payroll. So even there, yeah, it really kind of was the government that had quite a bit to do with its birth.

The basic framework for the Internet was created by government funded programs, but it was all the open source contributions from students and entrepreneurs that brought it from a shitty UNIX shell command prompt and 2400 baud dial up to what it is today. Not the government.

No, I've just been around long enough to see what a festering shithole the USA is turning into.


But evidently not long enough to know much about monetary policy, macroeconomics, or global finance.

A question: to whom does the US Federal government, and by extension the American people, owe that $17 Trillion? Hint: if you're answer is "The Chinese", you're only accounting for $1.24 Trillion. Another hint, this time by analogy: if you borrowed 11 trillion dollars from your wife, is your household 11 trillion dollars poorer?

If you spend that 17 trillion that your don't have, yes you owe that money to someone.

Do you honestly think the government can just inject that much imaginary cash into the economy with no consequences? They are propping up wall street right now, just wait until it catches up with them.

I'm sure you're heading back to the motherland, Russia. I hear communism is making a huge comeback these days. You can stand in line and wait hours for toilet paper again, just like the good old days.

Well at least they have toilet paper. See, when you were working 14 hour days for a pittance you could barely survive on you couldn't afford luxury items like toilet paper. Seriously though, why don't you move to Somalia where you won't have any of the 'burdens' to contend with and you can sink or swim on your own? I mean, it's worked out so well for them hasn't it? I understand Mogadishu is virtual paradise!

Yes, that's what happens when your government prints 17 trillion dollars worth of currency that's not worth the paper it's printed on.
Wait until that 17 trillion dollar bubble bursts. You will be the one without a job. I'm an electrician. I was smart enough to educate myself, so that I wouldn't have to depend on a part time, minimum wage job flipping burgers to support me and my children. I don't need the government to subsidize my life, I'd rather die first, but I guess some people don't mind living like parasites off the Federal Government... go figure.

So your a doomsday prepper, question, do you hope for it all to fall apart for a good solid "I told you so?". I know TV evangelist tells us he's all holy and predicts world wide death to everyone. Schweet!

Being the country with the currency that is the global standard has the luxury to build up a debt like that. If it were to blow up that is a global failure that will be felt world wide. The worlds debt sits in that. If it does go south then the debt becomes trivial any way. To me it's as good fear factor for us to sing kumbaya to. Because if you are 10+ trillion in debt with it still spiraling upward and it is still working, you probably can be a million, billion, trillion in debt and it continues to work to. So we going to live in fear 20 years from now when the levy hasn't broke and we are now 50 trillion? Doesn't there get a point where we say "Ok, it's a huge number, but it seems roughly the same as it ever was".

Yeah, we are all just redneck, uneducated, dooms day preppers. Huuuuurrr. No, I've just been around long enough to see what a festering shithole the USA is turning into.

I doubt that I'll be around when they finally turn off the lights on this for good.

Yeah, that was all Al Gore wasn't it? Read a book about how the internet was started some day. I've been on the Internet since I had to pay delphi $3/hr for 2400 baud access. I can assure you that the government had nothing to do with it's birth, and has only put up roadblocks in it's way ever since.

Yup, the ACA website was shitty. Since you hate the government so much you must not:
- Drive on the roads & bridges gov't builds
- Eat the food that the gov't tests
- Breathe the air that the gov't protects
- Drink the water that the gov't regulates
- Live safely in the protection gov't provides

- Yes, We the people gave tax dollars to fix roads, bridges and government Buildings (though we need far fewer)We did not give the permission to regulate every aspect of our lives, however.

- I don't need the government to test my food. I can shoot my own, thanks.

- Yes... I truly believe that you believe the government controls the air we breathe. and can stop polars bears from drowning by building it a raft made from $100 bills.

- Water falls from the sky, clean and pure. I don't require a rain dance from the messiah Obama and all the chemicals and shit they add to it.

- I can live safely on my own, thanks to the second amendment.

You can go back to praying to your holy government... I have some warframe to play before the internet becomes slow as crap and I have to pay data usage fees and taxes like europe.

Everything the government touches turns to shit and this will be no exception.

Try and be a bit more reactionary why don't you? Infrastructure, labour laws, foof and drug regulation, etc. - while all are far from perfect, they're a damn sight better than none at all. Or maybe you think life was better before all of that? Yes, I'm sure life was much better under the robber barons and other assorte tyrants.

I'm sure he'd find Somalia a much better place to live. There are no laws to fetter his living. It's freedom. A libertarian paradise. I'm sure he's buying one-way tickets right now.

I'm sure you're heading back to the motherland, Russia. I hear communism is making a huge comeback these days. You can stand in line and wait hours for toilet paper again, just like the good old days.

This is the same government that spent $640 million dollars on a website that took a year to fix.

You sheeple keep putting your blind faith into the government as long as the keep dishing out the the unemployment checks and then move on to disability, welfare, and food stamps when the UI runs out. One day, a lot sooner than you think, those checks are going to stop. Just like Greece and by then they will have stripped you of most the freedoms that you take for granted now.

Here's one I'm not sure I'm right on but I considering the rest of the game I have a sneaking suspicion... bounty hunting in a anarchy system, find a python with a bounty, start to kill him, he warps to a neighboring system to save himself, I scan his trail and follow him to the system but he's not there. There are no other warp trails (FSD for those of us in game), he's not in the system. Just nothing. So now I'm assuming once an NPC warps out, he just de-spawns. Not able to track him down and get the kill. Is this how it works or am I just missing something on this one? If it is, it's just such a frustrating mechanic. I know you can track fellow players but NPCs just disappear?

I have no problem finding ships that warp out. After you make the jump look for a low energy wake (no need to scan it), that's where the ship is

I don't get the hate for businesses trying new things to acquire money. Making money is the point of a business after all. And it's not like they switched their entire business model to this. I see this as an attempt to try something new(however silly it is). It will probably fail, but good on them for giving it a shot.

I should be given everything for free in life!

I guess that I just assumed that most people had a reliable Internet connection these days. I've had mostly reliable service going all the way back to the 80's when I had a 2400 baud dial-up telnet account.

I don't see the big deal either. I mainly play in Solo mode and I don't really care if it's pulling in data from the server now and then. You don't have to deal with other players at all in solo mode.
