American has moved past a manufacturing economy into a service-based economy. That's actually an advancement as a nation. To say "we should go back to making textiles and steel and mining coal" is ridiculous. We are currently at 3.5% unemployment. Where are these workers going to come from? "When we have factory jobs, people will quit McDonald's and Uber and go make jeans and aluminum parts!" Only if demand for labor dictates higher wages. Trump likes to claim that the "good-paying factory jobs are coming back", but factory jobs did not pay well until unions got involved. Before that, workers were working 16 hour days for a pittance.
Unions are what need to come back, not "factory jobs".

Right, unions need to come back. All of the productivity gains have gone to the 1%, while middle class wages have stagnated over the past 40 years. This directly correlates to declines in Union membership from 30% 50 years ago to just 10% today.

We could do it, but there is a negative stigma to manufacturing jobs in America. Too many people think you have to be sent of to college for a 4 year degree to be considered even minimally viable in the job market.

The people who do want manufacturing jobs have this pesky desire to be paid a living wage and not be paid in peanuts and the owners won't have that.

You want to make things? what are you, some sort of poor person?

Manufacturing jobs are a dead end anyway. 80% of manufacturing job losses in the US of been to automation, not cheap foreign labor. That trend is accelerating too.

Is it going to realistically have the aliens annihilate us as easily as buttering a piece of toast?

My thought is that there are two ways they can go with this:

- the Crysis route, where you actually fight the aliens

- the Arrival route, where you make first contact and must protect the aliens from other humans that would wish to do them harm.

My money would be on the latter, given Arma's realism in its mission.

Yes we can, you just don't want to pay more than 1 cent per dozen

You could make them that cheap in Mexico. Ditto for rare Earth metals and all the other things China has cornered the market on.

Comcast does so much lobbying that it says disclosing it all is too hard.

Disclose or go to jail.

Wait, so not disclosing is a few thousand dollar fine, while all their illegal lobbying reaps them millions? Can we make all corporate lobbying illegal already?

It looks too slick. Not sure how to explain that, but terminator 2 felt like it had weight, grime, dirt and dust to it. It was such a good film, it's going to be hard to reboot from that.

Heh, after T1, I thought T2 was too slick.

Observation is awesome. Best interactive sci-fi thriller I've ever experienced.
Hah, was just about to add it to my list on your recommendation but it's console only. Blue is always trying to trick us PC gamers! Paperbag Giggle

It's for PC. I'm installing it as we speak. Maybe it's an EGS exclusive though?
Oh seriously? I googled and it says PS4 - PlayStation. I see what you mean, looked a little more and seems it is a egs exclusive. I'll pass on egs but thanks for the update!
The trailer the other day said PC and PS, but no XBox. Did Sony pull a console Epic?

Anyone can lie about their age online.

And that's a little problem that can easily be fixed with the right tools.

Issue a coded number on a card linked to your birth date only, with a personal PIN that you have to provide to verify your age online to every citizen.

Kids can "steal" the parent's card ( or memorize the code ), but without knowing the PIN, they're fucked.

The seller's system automatically checks the coded number against the birth date database, if you're not 18, it refuses to accept the order.

There, easy simple fix.

Sure the parent can give the PIN, but then he'd have to be aware of what is happening with the kid, leaving room for PARENTING to happen.

Credit card companies won't allow that. They oppose anything that makes a purchase slower and have people abandon impulse purrchases midstream. And they own the politicians. Cheaper to pay a few thousand when someone complains and not lose millions in impulse purchases.

4 billion bucks and still can't get a first person PUBG or Firestorm game down here. Come on you fucks, don't do us dirty. The demand is there if the games are functional.


Not sure what you mean? Apex, Firestorm, and Blackout are all first person. You don't have them in Australia?
