The sunken cost fallacy is alive and well in the F35 project I see, it is hard to believe that debacle is still ongoing.

I could never get past the idea of Korea taking over all of Asia and China being perfectly fine with it.

Hope they do something more interesting with the story this time around than trot out every single military occupation cliche.

They can't afford to invade anyone, they're just a convenient villain by western media standards

It's not well balanced at all, Soviets still have it really rough. COH2 in general is a big let down despite the patches and community maps.

Google + has been nothing but a burden to people who use google services and has fucked up my youtube account beyond repair apparently.

I don't know exactly when it happened but I somehow got separated into two youtube accounts and have found no way to fix this. It's prevented me from seeing my playlists in XBMC, for example, by making my regular login go to a blank youtube account. Then they force anyone in the comments to have a google+ account just so they can claim higher numbers for their shitty platform.. it's all just a fucking mess.


Agreed. I fucking loathe Google+. I used to have one google account, now somehow I have 3 different youtube "identities" and its constantly badgering me about which one to use. They also made a google+ profile apparently without my fucking permission. Opt-out social network? Get fucked! Google needs to hire some non-engineers.

Bryan Cranston Says Breaking Bad Isn't Necessarily Over

It was great but I don't want to see revisits or prequels that involve Walt/Jesse. The side characters, fine whatever that's harmless. Don't mess with 5 seasons of awesomeness though.

Yes, you guys are the ones living in fear, me I don't care. Because at the end of the day I know I have nothing to worry about. Do you?

You keep squawking but you're not really saying anything. You talk about others living in fear but you're the one who seems to be so paranoid that he would give up all civil liberties in the name of "safety". It's those same civil liberties that you let speak your mind freely on a medium like this without fear of repercussion. You don't seem to understand that there is always a justification for removing a piece of your control in society, its in human nature to desire power over each other and that's why we need a system of checks and balances. We don't just throw it all away because some idiots blow themselves up. Real americans don't give up that easily.

So far the government has taken all of that data it mined and done important things like checked up on ex-girlfriends, wives, co-workers and spied on family. The real terrorism is within apparently.

The Gov. has every right to pry into our lives especially after 911.

Hahaha speak for yourself, that's not how I want my tax dollars spent. Some of us actually value our privacy. Why don't you post all of your personal information online here if it has no value and you don't care if anyone sees it? Make it easier for the government, right? Not seeming like such a great idea now I bet. If you want a dictatorship then there are many in the world, go have a blast.

The guy is a low life piece of shit traitor, plain and simple. Anyone who runs off giving our secrets to our enemies is a traitor. Hes placed peoples lives who are under cover at risk.

I don't see how this is true unless you consider the American people also to be the enemy. I know I'm glad to be informed of how extensive and overreaching some of these programs have been, many operating with dubious oversight at best. Who exactly has he placed in danger? I think he's made intelligence gathering more difficult but frankly its an area where so many advances have been made thanks to technology that I don't see a credible argument that its a large setback.

I don't have a particularly unhealthy diet; I just don't waste any energy worrying about what is in the things I do like to consume.

But how would you know then? If you researched your diet then you're not exactly as lax as you implied in your first post.

I mean I don't worry about every single calorie I consume either because life is too short but I generally try to avoid actively unhealthy food/choices in anything but moderation. Is that more what you meant?

I think the show is sometimes better than the source material to be honest. Don't worry about reading past the show, the show is moving much faster than GRRM anyway so by the time you're done ADWD the show will likely be wrapping up

It takes like 2 seconds to search for text someone said on here, not exactly stalking material.

Phew, for a second there I was worried that with the asteroid so far away by the time it gets here Bruce Willis would be too old to be trained on a space drill to deposit a nuke on it. Thanks CNN!

Don't worry, Hillary Swank & Aaron Eckhart are still available for our ridiculous drill purposes.
