It wasn't, and still isn't, remotely logical. Were it logical, you'd be able to find a single other person, anywhere in the world, that agreed with you. When literally no one anywhere agrees, the odds if you being logical slip to nil.

He said "child rapist" this time, so maybe you can admit you were wrong and apologize that you had your truly indefensible view.

Unless you think he was calling the guy a child that rapes. But then he also said the guy was married to a 12 year old, not sure how you could spin that claim.

Doesn't Musk have someone that can tell him "no?" He's utterly obliterated his good will on this. Could he be redeemed? Sure, but usually people saying "do the research and look it up yourself" are the kind of people telling you that the "real facts" are on YouTube.

Public sentiment towards him has shifted so rapidly, which is bad, as he was so well lauded and his crazier ideas applauded in part due to the good will he'd earned.

Beckinsale as Yennefer or no deal.

She's a full decade older than Cavill, so doubtful. Though she needs to be someone around his age. He's 35. Yennefer needs to be about the same. Triss can be younger, but Yennefer needs some age to add gravitas and weight.

I prefer to resist stupid buzzwords (especially those that originated in white supremacy) that are frequently used by easily offended snowflakes that are so terrified of women that putting one in a video game makes them boycott.

The O-Ring issue was heavily one of data presentation more than anything. The charts presented to management only showed launches with failures, and there was no clear pattern. Put in launches w/o failures, and the pattern was easily seen. Given the report they were handed to review, their decision makes sad sense. Still a bad idea, but one that made more sense at the time than it appears in hindsight.

Do you really not see a difference between movies about Nazis being bad and a game allowing people to LARP as one?

C'mon Beam, removing the tats from the game is silly. Wolfenstein had swastikas, for example. If it's within context, what's the problem?

As for the "movies vs. LARPing" argument, that's the same argument made by those people blaming CoD for gun violence.

Wolfenstein had swastikas, which you killed. This game has 14/88, which you can choose to wear.

Given that there are already issues with people being racist dickbag Nazis in multiplayer games, why leave in a tattoo that encourages people to act that way and seems to condone it? What's the benefit of saying "hey, players, did you ever want a Nazi tattoo on your throat in a video game? We'll let you do that!"

This isn't on an NPC, or an enemy, or even an ally. It's chosen by the player for their own character. I can't recall a single other game that had Nazi tattoos in the character creation.

When will American History X be removed from the shelves? Or Saving Private Ryan of any other movie that shows the nazi symbols? The thin skin of people cannot handle it. And since individuals can no longer think for themselves (sarcasm btw, except toward RedEye and his sig) maybe it's best the government steps in and makes sure any and all nazi symbols will be removed everywhere? I mean, people will forget about the atrocities and we'll lose our vigilance for fascism and another Hitler will rise but that's worth not hurting people's feelings over terrible symbols, right? =)

Do you really not see a difference between movies about Nazis being bad and a game allowing people to LARP as one?

Great now we have to deal with those socialist brainwashed Parkland fucks showing up everywhere again

Ok, aside from them being victims, can you explain to me what socialism is and why gun control is socialist?

You seem like a guy that uses buzzwords without knowing what they are.

You also seem like a socialist. Do you like public roads, school systems, libraries, and airports? Congratulations, you're a socialist! Because not a single person wants full socialism, they just want socialist elements, and unlike yourself, they realize our society is absolutely full of socialist elements already. You know, schools, roads, airports, parks, literally our entire infrastructure is socialism.

No way that lawsuit has any legs. It won't go anywhere.

The guy has to try. Never heard in the stories of people who survive a mass shooting is the hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills they have to deal with for the rest of their lives, usually with no way to recoup those costs.

Suing whomever you can is pretty much the only shot you've got at not being financially ruined for the rest of your life.

I mean... That's what insurance is for.
Insurance does not even begin to cover a lifetime of treatment, continuing physical rehabilitation and medications. And there is nothing to stop them from dropping you and if you can't work who pays the premium?

Gun manufacturers have strong lobbies, meaning that they can't be sued. Legally, they're immune. Some have tried to overturn that and gone bankrupt paying the gun manufacturers' legal fees.

I'm sure "Upgrade" will be a better film than "The Front Runner"... although, since I am also sure I will never see the latter I could be wrong. But I really doubt it.

At least it's a dark comedy. Which makes sense to me, for my age when the whole Gary Hart thing happened, my knowledge of it comes almost exclusively from Mad Magazine.

Incidentally, I once found out that the real head of the Catholic Church was Jim Henson, whose soul lives in the original Swedish Chef puppet. He whispers in the Pope's ear every night.

That must be really annoying. Hearing whispers of "BÝrk BÝrk BÝrk" in your ear, waking up, and no one is there, just the faint odor of Swede.

Hey, at least the pope gets Popcorn Shrimp whenever he wants! (if you watch that video, turn on the subtitles and set them to "Swedish Chef" if you want to bust a gut laughing.)

Oh man, I'd never seen that!

Part of why I gave up on the original was that ammo was too scarce, making it feel less action and more survival horror to me. Did that change in later games? I'm guessing no.

I suppose we should expect that, given that you have a Nazi as your icon. Beats having an anime girl, but only by slightly.

Thanks Beamer, I honestly didn't know it was a slur. And I never would have because my entire post was deleted.

Apologies if I've offended anyone about their sexuality. I'm fine with offending people for other things though :p

I think a lot of people don't realize. Some, when they do, get indignant. I appreciate your response. Didn't think you meant to mock everyone like that (I believe there's representation here), but just one lone idiot. The word, though, is like "fag," meant to imply someone is wrong for being that way, rather than happens to both be wrong and be that way.

Thanks.

When people talk about increasing security, I get nervous. We increased security at airports, but it only increased the stress of flying and lowered convenience, and there are still huge juicy targets in airports.

And, ultimately, we have to keep in mind that these types of shootings make up a tiny portion of the gun homicides in the US. Drastically changing our way of life to include metal detectors and security lines everywhere to maybe sometimes address part of 1% of the gun homicides is a bad overreaction.

Turning the US into a giant prison block can't be the solution.

I agree. I go through way too much way too slow airport security, and while I'm sure it's doing something, it's far too invasive.

I keep wondering why we don't see people attacking the security lines themselves. When I'm at the airport in the security line I'm like "Welp, we're sitting ducks." and I'm not even a terrorist. A terrorist, whether it be an Islamic extremist or some incel, would look at that and see a bunch of people lined up for the firing squad.

Holy shit, that's brilliant. Devious, and brilliant.
Then we'd also need security lines to get into the security lines!
