That's a common phenomena and directly attributable to the school system and a societies values... in the end you want people not to do what your cousins do, you have to offer them a future that consists of more than just working and family. Let's face it, life is not there to be working 40 years of it and then when you are old and fucked up trying to enjoy life with your broken down and sick or just plain OLD body.
Well, that's what PC games are for.

This entire society actually makes me sick. But it seems we are on a good way to a 3rd world war anyway.
Well, I'd hardly say that. The number of wars, and deaths during such wars have been in steady decline in the past 100 years. I used to live across the river from the largest sub base and sub factory in the world. Submarines, being the most difficult to track and destroy part of the nuclear triad meant that said sub base was target number one, even moreso than Washington DC. Certainly the Soviets had dozens of nukes pointed at this single city, a mere 3 miles as the crow flew from my house. How many days did I awake to the sun streaming threw my window into my face dreaming that the USSR had just nuked the base and I was ten seconds from incineration? Dozens and dozens and dozens. Even with Putin's regional aggression, I feel much safer today. I don't live near that sub base any longer, but I do now live only a few miles from US Pacific Command, a Naval base full of top of the line US Naval vessels. Certainly Russia still has nukes pointed here, but I feel much safer than I did 20 or 30 years ago.

Well, for me Poland is a direct neighbor, and when we have 8 NATO training deployments scheduled in a month that previously had 1 ! and evidence that Russia is moving heavy tank, AA and artillery brigades to the borders to invade the East Ukraine things look slightly more worrisome. What you call regional aggression is directly bordering the EU. And Putin is the type who'd invade the Ukraine with 0 flinching... if he actually did that we'd have a cold war deluxe. Nato would be forced to employ it's entire strength* to the EU borders with Russia because the close countries would be screaming bloody murder for protection.

*And since NATO was close to being dismantled, this means EU as a whole is gonna have to re-arm itself... that's not a way to peace....

Because it's the job of a society to protect the weakest... what kind of argument is "then don't use it" .. that can only come from someone with ZERO understanding of children. If that kinda logic would work on them the world would be a better place indeed....

Given that logic, we should outright ban all forms and places of communication because they have the potential to be used by a small group of people to harass other people.

Which is in fact something I'd advocate, but only for children.

Surely I mentioned before that I hate children? But more than children I hate mobbing. And children that mob other children should imo be punished heavily. Guantanamo etc.

Well, I have two cousins who were brought up that way. Where are they now? Sitting at their parents home, in their 30's never had a job, afraid of going outside, and basically hiding from society.

So yeah, my argument basically boils down to: The world is a nasty place, you have to face it sometime.

That's a common phenomena and directly attributable to the school system and a societies values... in the end you want people not to do what your cousins do, you have to offer them a future that consists of more than just working and family.

Really? I thought it was the idea of learning to stand up on your own, and make important life decisions and being able to grow that was important. But I guess if you want to coddle people, and bury them in safety blankets. Then one day they can experience the whole evil, nasty, asshole world and then get triggered by it, that's okay too.

Your argument is basically "children are like adults and should learn like adults" which is absurd. I won't even comment further on that To me, children are worth to be protected from the evil asshole world. Because a child committing suicide may really not see a way out. Something an adult with a goal in life might see different. The real problem is that schools pump out brain-dead zombies who think working is the only reason of existence for a human being. And those same people vote the radical batshit insane crazies in power.

So basically, when can we nuke this planet? ^^

No spoilers, but the story has a great set up, great payoff, and a realistic, but inspirational ending.

Well, I will not dispute the article is expertly written, and the guy acted heroically in the end, but holy shit, these type of 'heroism in the face of needless danger' stories always depress and infuriate me.

It's like that story of the guy who went off hiking on his own over dangerous terrain, fell into the chasm with a boulder and had to cut his own arm off to survive. Yes, it's an amazing story of survival, but what the fuck, common sense?

Anyway that's my take, glad you guys enjoyed the article and found it inspirational, even. Stories like this make me want to start a habit of drug or alcohol abuse.

Well, I agree that the guy who went hiking alone and lost his arm was taking unnecessary risks, but as the article points out you're more likely to die being struck by lightning than in a skydiving accident. It's a safe activity, relatively speaking, and the company had a good safety record. What's amazing is the what that guy did when faced with the situation he was in.

But there are a lot more lightning strikes than sky-divers Anyhow.. crazy story

How do you propose someone defends against a situation where he's put in jail because of a false judgment? By hoping?

1) Class action lawsuits are civil suits. Someone being put in jail is a criminal suit.

2) Fighting against a criminal suit that wrongly put you in jail is done through an appeals process, so it is considered part of the original criminal suit. This isn't the same as starting/joining a new (civil) suit.

Ergo, Latin, you're comparing apples and chunks of coal.

That said, it seems there's no difference as far as most states are concerned.

Well, granted it was a really bad comparison, but for both civil and criminal justice systems you need a lawyer, and thus you need to be allowed to take a lawyer.

No idea really how US system works, but if a civil lawsuit goes like this because they can't deliver a LETTER to someone in prison then it seems the justice system has worse problems than just bad postal service.

I wasn't aware you could enter into class-action lawsuits from jail.

Why wouldn't you be able to?

Because many of your rights are curtailed or even denied while you are in jail, and it makes little sense that you'd be allowed to sue someone/something while incarcerated.

The story also includes word that this suit might have been settled a month ago with Gearbox dropped from the proceedings, except one of the plaintiffs could not be located to approve. It was later learned this was because he was incarcerated in Pennsylvania.

And what little respect I had for the US just dropped another point...

(I don't like PewDiePie much, IMHO he crosses over the line between silly and stupid, but he's certainly successful.)

I blame the Jersey Shore generation that thinks the crap on MTV is "Real Life" (see what I did there).

I don't know 1 person that actually knows who the F or what the F pewdiepie is. (or maybe who watches it - cause I would have to have a come to Jesus with them) I watched a few moments of a few videos. I couldn't stand it. (recently found out what and who it was)

And that guy makes money!? WTF!?

I guess The Youngs eat that shit up?

No accounting for taste... I heard of it and watched a few minutes, but I would never watch it with regularity or ever again at that. It's like batman says, crossing the line to full metal retard level. But hey, that sums up MTV pretty damn well so maybe there is a market for it...

I can't play this game because it requires I prioritize UDP traffic on port range 32000-65535.

Given how by default my traffic is Bulk, and is selectively elevated for each game, I cannot just give high priority to 33535 freaking ports.

Terrible and pointless coding decision on their part.

This bothers me in a lot of games... but what do you mean with "bulk" ? All my traffic is priority, some things are just higher priority (Websites/Stream) and some are highest priority (VOIP/IPTV)

What exactly are you doing with your traffic? Or is it your ISP?

Tablet's have probably reached the point of saturation; everyone who wanted one has bought one. Same thing that happened with flat screen HD TVs.

What you call market saturation is in reality a market that waits for the "NEXT BIG THING" , and tablets are not that thing yet. Also I highly doubt global markets are crashing.
