In a perfect world everybody would fucking love their job and strive to do it as best as possible on a daily basis. Rampant time wasting via the internet is a symptom, not a disease.

In a perfect world we wouldn't need to work in the first place. And that already exists for brats born to money.

And is the socialist dream of a lazy liberal! Unfortunately there's millions of lazies, not many silver spoons...

Yes, because 200 years ago we had to work 7 days a week, but thanks to those pinko commie libruls we only have to work five! Even God said you should only have Sunday off (who knew God was a commie?), but we take two days! In a row!

C'mon Axis, let's start a PAC to remove the weekend. We can call it the Seven Workdays All Lazy Liberals Over a Week Political Action Committee, or SWALLOWPAC for short. I'm sure we can get the Koch brothers to donate a ton. They'd prefer all their workers to be working seven days a week at their current monthly salary, so we should have plenty of money to support candidates.

lol JD.

At least we're seeing *real* working liberals now and again who don't feel the world owes them -- gives me hope! I'm long tired of hearing from the rich apologetic ones pretending to be a humanitarian poor person with a tough life...

PC sales are starting to pick up again.

Now that everyone owns a tablet and realizes they're pretty limited, they're buying PCs again.

Still looking for the limits in my Nexus 10.

I can program with it, digital art (my Wacom tablet was plug and play), read, write, etc... What are these limits I was supposed to find?

I have three Nexus 10's in my household, one for each kid, one for myself. I absolutely love them, still the best tablets out there with well over a year and a half of technology gone by since their debut.

If you don't know of any of the severe limitations in personal and business life, including the obscured one about the industry stated above, stay happy and read no further on the subject.

Shh... common sense has a way of insulting those in denial...

Best to just let them frolic in their make-believe, it's more humane!

Apparently most of you are not old enough to remember the same type of bullshit headlines from the 80's, when machines were going to replace all the jobs.

Oh ya, and the ozone was going to be destroyed if you didn't stop spraying your mullet...

Nothing has been worse for our county, including the economy, than Obama and the democratic machine - don't need a conservative blog equivalent to quote - just open your eyes and have a look around.

You realize, of course, that CFCs are still widely believed to cause holes in the ozone layer and were banned from most uses in 1989, though some countries are still banning them as we speak.

It's funny that you mention it as if it's some quack science when:
1) The theory is still believed
2) Nothing has been disproved
3) The causations have been banned or reduced
4) No one is really lacking in their lives from those changes

Because it is quack crap. Nothing has been proved either - all you have is early speculation from Nasa and the taking of the torch from the libs in the early part of the witch hunt. It's still being by the thousands and thousands of tonnes/year in other countries, some speculate even more today than in the past because of it's profitability -- and since you couldn't comprehend a "lacking in lives", you wouldn't know how it affected the poor when they couldn't get freon anymore in the past, and how much more expensive it is with the alternate crap they use today.

I played it and I see nothing special at all. Glad people like it, but I find it standard mmo fare.

I *really* like Trion, and I liked rift, but this one didn't catch me at all.

And the game is great fun. It's a much slower pace FPS which is great for kids, but still very fun for geriatrics!

Oh ya, they have a timer that resets the zone if you don't enter it for 8 minutes.

It does take some familiarity as there's certain zones you'll wanna pop back in asap, others that have portals that it doesn't really matter. But that was something they tweaked much in beta and 8 minutes is more than enough (as long as you know the timer exists).

Put 30 hours into the beta but haven't been back. Was too annoyed by being gone from a level too long to sell my stuff and having that level reset.

Not sure what you mean JD. The vast majority of PoE's population are in the 4 month leagues, the standard and HC leagues tend to be used as experimentation and something to do when the 4 months are in transition.

I have all my wealth and high chars in HC, but only ,load them up on new season tree resets to get a feel for how I'll plan the builds.

Aside from the rocky start of the new season with the op beyond mobs and terrible rewards (which made people think "Invasion" all over again), they fixed it well enough that this season is turning out to be one of the best with all the other improvements and additions - strongboxes, map drops, forsaken masters/crafting, build diversity back in style, etc.

As a long term player it does get frustrating getting dozens of characters to high-level endgame and virtually never getting great end-game unis or drops (I get 99% of my stuff self-found or bought with farming for the chaos recipe), but it's immensely more satisfying when one does, and doesn't stop builds from progressing further - just slower.

As for the "get back in after being away awhile", I've built the builds int he offline skill and zip it up in case I ever need to reference it on the old trees.

Verno you read like a liberal blog. /argument over/for the children/not political/ Cut and paste that or something?

My responsibility to my children is to not have political twats tax them to death for some bullshit regulations. Maybe you'll dig deeper when you have to pay taxes, or get your heating bill, or have kids... most do eventually wake up.

Saw Destiny on my friend's PS4, I think Ben went easy on the game, but it was certainly spot on.

About 20 seconds or so about the paying for the sub, and again I have to agree.

Course I'm not an owner of either console and would never play a FPS with a console controller so I'm not going to go crazy for any game like this to begin with. But based on what I've personally seen, yep about right.

"I rarely use the word wrong...except when I do all the time" ok well, whatever If you were just sitting around filling your "wife" in on the happenings on an old PC gaming forum then uh wow, you have my pity.

The "Consensus" of a group is generally bullshit and serves themselves 9 of 10 times, and in this case there is no real consensus. Measurable facts are all that matter.

Nope, can't agree with that. There are many cases where consensus serves us all well and many areas of science where "fact" is derived from consensus opinion and peer review. Scientific community says climate change is real but more importantly that man is accelerating the curve unnaturally. Scientific community also says that earth has natural climate cycles and people latch onto this but somehow think its fine to ignore the former. So do we trust the scientific community or not?

I don't really see what is so threatening to people about that conclusion either.

No pity needed. Happily married, 2 kids, semi retired and I don't have a "follow axis around" fetish.

"Wrong" (felt like adding it again since you love to latch on to stupid shit). The "community" is clearly fractured on this opinion. If anything, more and more agree that man, when compared to nature, has virtually no effect.

You think we need scientists to tell us this? We learn this basic knowledge at about 1st grade.

Just re-read what I posted, pretty clear you are 100% wrong Beamer. And I rarely use the word "Wrong" but you are.

You've used the word wrong 89 times since registering here actually, you can see it by clicking on your username and typing "wrong" into the search box

On topic, I think it is amusing that people will accept the consensus of the scientific community on one hand and refuse to do so in another. There's nothing natural about the WW temperature curves with the rise of industrialization.

I bashed the shit out of the game, and still stand by most of my comments when comparing to the original.

However my son plays it non stop and I'm glad as hell I bought it for him -- very kid friendly in many ways, takes them slowly through progression, then eventually dungeons then pvp/wvw and nothing is over the top or too complicated for younger audiences.

Having played the original countless times in my youth, I'm still on the fence on this one.

I know I'll eventually pick it up, but haven't been motivated to do so yet based on what I've seen.

You didn't also read I stated NATURE affects the changes? Isn't that the other obvious answer to your question?

The climate changes. Sometimes it gets warm, sometimes it gets cold. Some creatures go extinct, some adapt, some are born anew. History exists. Long term trends matter, short term trends don't mean shit.

That's so fucking ridiculous to ask someone if they believe earth warming/cooling is real or not. If you can type, I'm sure you've witnessed the gamut of weather and recognized sometimes its hot and sometimes its not. So you'd know these basic caveman things even if you weren't the leading scientist on the subject. you might even google some shit. Or in the case of most of you alarmists, replayed Gore's movie ever year at Christmas.
