Cutter, I love you man, but there is so much wrong here.
Cutter wrote on Feb 7, 2015, 13:41:
Not so. It's not just an issue of perspective. Popular almost never equates to good. Take wine for example. Tasting is subjective but you still require a trained palate and a good amount of tasting behind you before you can really start to discern good from bad wine. Most people drink $10 plonk from the liquor store. They've never had a 20+ year old bottle of Bordeaux and therefore have no basis on which to compare 'good' vs. 'bad'.
Wine tasting is so subjective as to be meaningless, even among experts and people with decades of experience, as study after study has shown. They can't tell red from white in blind taste tests, they rate the same wine from different bottles differently, ditto for different labeling, ditto for the same people rate the same wine differently a few weeks apart, etc:
In 2001 Frédérick Brochet of the University of Bordeaux asked 54 wine experts to test two glasses of wine – one red, one white. Using the typical language of tasters, the panel described the red as "jammy' and commented on its crushed red fruit. The critics failed to spot that both wines were from the same bottle. The only difference was that one had been coloured red with a flavourless dye
And this makes no sense:
There's a reason the expression 'half the people you meet are of below average intelligence' exists - some even estimate that to be as high as 75% of society below the median intelligence. So yes, there are a metric shit ton of actual dumb people out there, that's not being mean it's just a fact like death and taxes. In the case of Star Citizen I'd say it's more akin to the quotes ascribed to P.T. Barnum.
First, the saying that "half the people are below average intelligence" is itself an intelligence test of the listener, since of course there's nothing remarkable about that. In a sample set of billions, the average will be at the mid-point, and half the people will be below, and half above. And second, while it might be theoretically possible for 75% of the population to be below average if you had a cadre of 10s of millions of outliers with extremely high intelligence to move the average higher than the general population, studies don't bear that out. And of course that's not possible at all with median intelligence. Median by definition is the midpoint of a group, so by definition half are above and half are below. Thus the statement "as high as 75% of society below the median intelligence" is nonsensical.

Sounds to me that you are below the median. You missed the whole point and went off on a tangent. Star Citizen is a great game with a large fan following. It deserves more then that.

Spoken like someone who has no idea what they're talking about.


Well its not going to run Call of duty anytime soon. Nor anything steam related. Nor is W10 a step forward from W7. Windows apps suck terribly. You need a windows login for the apps to work. There are virus's everywhere and the browser sux ass. And the worst think is PI is powerless to run anything smoothly. So bite me....

Caution is warranted but most radiation we generate that can get inside a house by bending and diffraction instead of piercing (like radio waves, wifi, not like xray) has nowhere near the energy to be ionizing. Adding more wifi waves (if this even makes sense) doesn't increase the harm much because of the quantum nature of electron excitation.

This is heavy.


Good news. It only causes brain cancer and leukemia in children. Other then that it appears completely safe!

I was one of those windows 7 holdouts, but I actually tried out the new windows when 8.1 came out and I like it much better than 7 now. It boots faster than 7, gives me better tools to work with the OS. It is a much more refined OS. I expect that once they get the bugs out of windows 10 it will be even better.

Get off your knees it's embarrassing.
