Reminds me of an old joke: What's the difference between a bucket of sand and a bucket of afterbirth? You can't gargle with a bucket of sand.

*walks slowly around sir while keeping eye contact at all times, back against the wall and takes a seat on the other side of the room*

Ahem.

Anyway, at least Jim (fucking) Sterling (son) will be happy, he (fucking) adores this game. I could never get into it even though I love roguelikes. But I'm more into the actual ASCII-type 'pure' rogues, like Brogue (which is awesome on an iPad, btw!), the original Rogue (which is extremely hard to get into) and stuff like Dwarf Fortress's Adventure-mode, along with newer ones like Caves of Qud, COGMind, Claustrophobia, and ADOM...

*continues watching sir from across the room while slowly sipping his sake*

Rigs, have you tried SanctuaryRPG: Black Edition

It is similar to L.O.R.D. (Legend Of the Red Dragon) from back in the BBS days. Great game done right.

Love this game. One of those gems that one comes across every 5-10 years that just stays with you. Also have it on Vita which it is a perfect game for the platform.

This is nothing new. I know people who ruined their college education (a.k.a. -- failed out) over computer games in the 1980s. And I'm sure people were getting addicted to one thing or another and dropping out long before then.

Yes, it happens. Is it a major problem? Pretty sure it isn't.

just curious, what games were they so addicted to back in the 80s that caused that to happen?

I think there is a confusion when he said video games, I think he meant drugs and alcohol......

And the end result produced 3.7 grams of pyrimethamine – the chemical name of Daraprim.

“That’s about $110,000 worth of the drug,” Dr Williams said.

Yes, that's what Turing says it costs to make that much of the drug. How much did it cost these kids to make that? $20. $20 fucking dollars. Unreal. Americans should be running riot in the streets over how they get screwed by PhRMA.
To be fair, the kids didn't make their drugs in an FDA-approved and regulated lab. The problem isn't the drug manufacture itself, it's the regulations that permitted Shkreli to do what he did.

A more widely used drug, epi pens, are price abused even more.

Lawyers: New court software is so awful it’s getting people wrongly arrested.

Unreal was so far ahead of it's time. I remember we restarted the game several times trying to see under that door......and the MP of the games was 2nd to only Action Quake. Using the teleport and getting in some really cool places was a lot of fun.

driving changed it's sensitivity so drastically depending on how fast you turned the wheel. LOL.

Not trying to nit pick, but might be a bad example. You ever half crank a steering wheel instantly in a car at 60? I have.

Big Macs are a guilty pleasure of mine, used to allow myself 1 a month. I haven't had one in over 2 years.....there is just to much information about fast food to allow myself to eat it. I have enough bad habits that will kill me, I had to drop some along the way....

Enjoy the little things in life. I doubt a once a month burger has been the dying regret of anyone ever. That said, maybe consider In-N-Out, Backyard Burger, Shake Shack, or Five Guys instead of a McDonalds if you really want the gluttony to be worth it.

It is just a small part of a bigger picture. A few years ago my body chemistry decided I needed to suffer from gout. Knowing this is a small indication of a larger issue down the road (kidneys, heart failure, etc.), I made several diet and lifestyle changes. Unfortunately they haven't entirely helped, as even without the red meat I have had outbreaks. Sucks.

I am partial to In-N-Out, as whenever I traveled to the West coast I would consume large amounts when I could. We have Five Guys, but they are new here and I have not had them.

He's done it! He's reached level 1800 in Overwatch. Offers unsubstantiated claims that all others to do so shared accounts…

Not sure if I am happy for him or feel embarrassed on his behalf.

Court Awards Damages Following Bogus DMCA Takedowns. Thanks HARDOCP.

Well, he went after an amount of money $15,000 that isn't worth it for the labels to send an attorney. Isn't much of a win unfortunately. Had the amount been 6 figures, I guarantee you an attorney for the labels would have showed. No different than civil lawsuits against cities. They settle them for less than 100k because it costs a minimum of 50k just to do one day in court. 6 figures is pie in the sky for most people, so they just take the deal. Meanwhile the city worker who did no wrong is thrown under the bus.

That RDR video was cool, but it was a link after the video that got me on the right side. There is a vid of the guy and his family that did John's voice. Just a normal dude, with a great outlook on life.
