Cutter wants to pay the cheapest price, because why should anyone get it cheaper?
Cutter wants the highest standard of living, because why should anyone get better?
Cutter doesn't (want to) understand the correlation.

I'm sure Cutter practices what he preaches. When he goes out for a Thai meal of Panang curry, rice, and spring rolls, and the bill comes in for $20, he leaves $2, since "Charging some people a lot more and some a lot less depending on where they live for the same meal is really scummy.." and $2 is what it costs in Thailand.
+1
It's a hard concept for some to understand.

-1

The point is sound but the analogy doesn't work. Like El Pit says, that meal in Canada would cost more to create and also it would probably also be subject to higher regulations - additives, storage, kitchen hygiene. The cola one is better, or the Big Mac Index, with less significant changes between regions.

In fact you CAN walk into a courtroom and say "people are doing something so I should be allowed also". It's called "precedent".

LOL dude you are too funny.

Haha, no. No it's not. Precedent is specific previous court decisions, not people previously dodging court.

Deary me.

LOL, i linked a page that has live twitter tweets. you can click on any of them and they take you to her actual twitter page and the tweet. ...

Beamer's line "She didn't make those tweets. They were Photoshopped." was clearly referring specifically to the two tweets in his [Photoshop link. Nothing else. Your response, "LOL you think all her shit was photoshopped?", is just plain wrong. He was not referring to "all her shit".

Tilt wheel is totally useless to me in games. Actually I've never had any use for a tilt wheel at all, even on the desktop.

Bind tilt left to shift+ctrl+tab and right tilt to ctrl-tab so you can switch browser tabs by tilting the mouse wheel to one side.

Changed. My. Life.

As per the proof. Leslie Jones has a blue check. Those photoshopped tweets do not.

Blue ticks aren't displayed all the time. On someone's profile, the tick is at the top but not on each tweet. She claims they're fake, but she has posted plenty of trash. It wouldn't surprise me either way.

She didn't. Those are photoshopped.

Where's the proof? Are you sure she didn't write those tweets and maybe delete?

I'm inclined to believe you because I trust you not to make stuff up or parrot nonsense and I certainly wouldn't put it past him but still, this is an unfounded accusation.

Criticising Milo is not defending Leslie Jones.

There's plenty of bullshit around feminism, anti-Trump attacks are disgusting and I'm sure some BLM people are racist but I am continually surprised by how quickly people, in a topic that blew up because they were sick of negative generalisations about gamers, so quickly do the same about these groups or even "the Left" as a whole. This is how language naturally works and generalisations are essential to communicate but it's so often clumsy and in shihonage's kool-aid fuelled rant, silly.

BLM in particular. It is not Only BLM, it is BLM Too - in this context, life mattering is defined as how often cops kill black or white people. It is focus, not exclusion.


Beamer wrote on Jul 20, 2016, 17:31:
Quboid - this is what I meant when I said people keep giving this excuse. "There are murderers with Twitter accounts." Yes, but they aren't murdering people on Twitter.

I get that. It was scarcely relevant in the first place, but the start of your comment says the opposite; that his defenders think it is a pattern and not one night.

Edit: "he photoshopped" - source?

I thought you were a fanboy yesterday when you referred to a "bias fiasco". I wonder why people keep on mistaking you for one. Granted, I've only bought Nvidia cards recently (although over 20 years, I could also name most manufacturers ever).

Assuming you're correct - I don't know and I don't understand that chart but what you say makes sense - does that matter? If only one of these implementations is supported by Nvidia cards, only one of these implementations is going to be used by game developers, no? A benchmark which isn't even trying to represent real world conditions is no use to me. Unless implementing more than one method is easy, I don't know.

Nice one for them. Most of these will be free (it was 5M buyers out of 15M players) but it's still obviously a huge success.

I don't like it as I kept on wanting it to be more like soccer. I'm admittedly being rather pedantic as the comparison is obvious but differences kept bugging me.

I feel like most of his defenders feel like Milo isn't being banned for one night's worth of tweets, but a pattern of them. He's been temp banned numerous times.

What do you mean? Why would his defenders think he was banned for being a repeat offender? Did you mean that his defenders don't realise this?

If people cannot be trusted to treat one another with respect, dignity and consideration, perhaps they deserve to have their online freedoms curtailed. [...] We ban drunks from driving because they’re a danger to others. Isn’t it time we did the same to trolls?

Bro! Do you even FPS, bro??!

My Logitech G700s wireless gaming mouse supports up to 1Khz* and 8200 DPI. Why? It's a very nice mouse but surely that's far more than anyone could need. I have both set to about a quarter of those limits, to boost the battery life up to usable.

* Polling rate isn't really that useful, it's not an indication of latency.

I suspect my wireless mice have been less reliable than corded ones but the number of problems I've had on that front have been insignificant. Keeping them charged is the only issue; my Performance MX only needs charged once a week or so but my G700s only lasts a few hours per charge. It's fine for a gaming session, as designed, but I don't recommend it for general usage.

I don't notice lag with either but the G700s gaming mouse does feel sharper. I think this is because it is lighter but there may also be subconscious lag issues with my MX.

descender wrote on Jul 19, 2016, 15:22:
That's the "clutch" button that turns the free-wheel mode on/off. Not bindable, it's a physical button. Both PerformanceMX and MasterMX have the same button.

Thanks. The Performance MX's clutch button works well; I almost went off Logitech mice when they started the hyper-scroll system and it was a lot more hassle than it was worth but it's reasonable now and easily ignored. 5 buttons is disappointing, assuming that includes the mouse wheel. I like having an extra button to bind to F5.

You guys are way too attached to old wired mice. Logitech Performance MX or the new Master MX are incredible. Great battery life, works on every surface, no latency issues.

You don't game well enough to tell the difference between wired and wireless mice, stop it. It's hilarious that they've managed to sell as many of these "progamer douchebag" mice without people realizing that they are utterly pointless.

On the Master MX, what is the button below the scroll wheel? Is that bindable, or does it switch the wheel's mode?

The state of the world in 2016

Look out ya window and see pukemon hunters all over the place sad sad sad thats the state of the world 2016

What's bad about pokemon "hunters"? They're doing exercise and getting some vitamin D. The game is very simple, but that doesn't make it a bad thing.

"It's different and not to my tastes and therefore objectively bad!"

I mean, don't get me wrong, a lot of things that are different and not to our tastes are objectively bad, and the Pokemon craze is kind of hysterical given how little content is there and how little there is to do once you've captured something, but the exploratory aspects of capturing something is kind of funny, in a good way.

Uhh guys, did you not see where he called it pukemon? Pukemon. Like Pokemon, but with the word puke in it. You lost this argument before you even posted, there's no beating such an eloquently made point.

Tried to search first, is Arma 3 a military team deathmatch or CTF or some such? It says Coop on the Steam page, which is why it caught my attention. Yet nothing about this sounds or looks like Coop.

It's a military sandbox, it has all those modes and more - many more, if you're happy to use mods.

an old Hindu cleric

I can`t figure this guy out. He could be a true hippie or a scamming self publicist. If you look at his Twitter, he has a scattergun approach ranging from the OP (nonsense) to including "true African religions" into Rio Olympics (dunno, maybe?) and banning child marriage (sure!).

Regardless, he seems to piss off people who piss me off -like Bible bashers and noted bigots - so, for now, I approve.

He seems like a #self #publicist but it's hard to tell. I see cultural appropriation as a bad thing when it is done with ignorant stereotypes trying to represent the reality and I doubt that applies to a skin in Overwatch. It's probably more like cultural tribute, although I don't know the context as I haven't played it. (I doubt he has either!)

I look at these issues from the point of view of just wanting good characters and writing. A character introducing themselves by saying "hi, I'm the token transsexual, look at us tackling mature themes" is bad writing. A character standing in a pose that is out of character is, well, out of character. It was weird to see the oppose extremes argue these two points when I thought both were correct and neither issue was a big deal anyway.
