That is why we have been and will continue investing heavily in employee skills and retraining -- to make all of us successful in this new era of technology.

News Comments > Video Games Affect Grades... A Little
1. Re: Video Games Affect Grades... A Little Sep 18, 2018, 12:46 Creston
 
I would imagine it's more of a correlated effect rather than a causative.

I don't see why playing videogames would be a direct cause of lowering your grades, but I can see that if you play games 8 hours a day and neglect your homework and other areas of your life, it would be detrimental.

In any case, I think the internet and the "instant entertainment" phenomenon it has caused would be a far greater effect on grades than games.

Except, of course, they will displace blue collar jobs, and create high-tech jobs. For which the blue collar workers aren't going to be eligible/capable without substantial (and costly) training. Which the assholes who just fired all their staff and replaced them with robots aren't going to pay for.

Ergo, (Latin), those 75 million people who lost their jobs are all going to have to suck it, I guess?

extremely graphic content by 35 million minors

Because, you know, these minors couldn't just type "Hentai Tits" in google. Instead, it's much easier for them to go into Steam and look at some plain screenshots of a mature game. Rolleyes

Been over a decade since I built a PC. I take it from the comments the pre-applied cooling paste is more than sufficient?

Eh, depending on if you want to overclock or not. If you're planning to OC by 20%, you'll want to put some Arctic Silver on there. If you're just gonna run stock, then the regular paste is fine (For the Ryzen processors, they actually put some decent stuff on there. Don't trust anything Intel gives you. Intel deliberately puts birdshit TIM in their processors to save themselves 10 cents per die, so trusting their thermal paste seems risky.)

As everyone knows more thermal paste means more cooling, so I just dipped my entire computer in it. It now runs at ambient temps, and is completely silent...

Up next, filling your entire house with thermal paste!

and can't wait to see which paths you'll choose

I'm gonna guess it's Path A or Path B.

Still on the fence about this. It looks basically just like a reskin of Origins. :\

was origins any good? i've had it sitting on my hard drive for a year barely touched.

Yeah, Origins is excellent, WELL worth your time. But it's also huge. And this one supposedly is even bigger. Honestly, after I played Origins, I really didn't need another game which looks to be exactly the same...

Only a little weird that he says in Europe and for one day in July...
Now here we are in the middle of September in America

Yeah, I didn't know that was coming, but it is from our ad provider, and is just another cookie consent. I've lost track of who requires these things, I feel like I get then on half the pages I visit these days.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but there should be no reason for alarm.

To everyone: Make sure you go into "Manage Cookies" and make sure that all the crap that's turned "on" is something you're willing to live with. There's a lot of pretty shady shit in there, including giving them the authority to harvest all cookies from your PC for their own purposes.

Hey Blue,

Is that GIANT cookie banner that has a big grey N in a square on it on the left yours? Or is one of your ads being funky?

Itís a communal experience. Thatís what cinema is

Man, fuck you. Nobody ever went to the movies for the joy of "watching it with other people", you freaking idiot. People go to the movies because the screen is huge and the sound is ferocious.

If you care that much about the communal experience, you got sit in the cinema with hordes of assholes who crunch chips, kick the back of your seat, text and play games on their cell phones at 40000 nits brightness and flat-out just talk to each other then. Clearly you'll fit in well with all the other assholes.

I'll stay home and watch shit on streaming or on DVD/Blu.

If there's one thing you can rely on Democrats to do, it's staying home and not voting when it really matters. If we all got out and voted every time, no amount of gerrymandering or dirty tricks would save the Republican party.

Yep. It's easier for most Dems to sit and bitch on the internet than to take the one hour and *gasp* go outside and vote so they wouldn't have to go and bitch on the internet.
