This thread is great:

1) DangerDog says "Trump never claimed it was the largest inauguration. The media made the battle!"

2) It's proven Trump made the size comment

3) DangerDog says "Well, it's about when the photo was taken, so Trump was right!"


It shows That DangerDog doesn't bother looking into anything before getting all angry at someone else over it, meaning he blames the media instead of Trump, and it means he'll do anything to defend Trump.

Basically, why are we talking to him when it's been proven here he's ignorant, unwilling to use Google before committing to an opinion, and unwilling to change his poorly informed opinion after someone shows him actual video disputing his memory? This isn't even about opinions, which people here argue often. He's arguing fact in the face of video evidence. If someone can't even agree on widely-proven fact, why engage?
Sadly, DangerDog is not unique. In fact, he represents significant portion of the population. It is the very definition of how/why Trump was elected.

Yes, that's why I'm curious. I'm not going to change his mind or even get honest answers, but how he avoids reality is interesting. His political beliefs are a house of cards, he daren't risk disturbing a single one in case the whole lot falls down.

I got what you were going for. My "don't bother engaging" was rhetorical. I understand why those here that do, and do so without malice, do. I just want him to see how he has hard and fast opinions on things he hasn't looked into and is clearly very misinformed about. He won't acknowledge, and like with everything else, he'll pretend it isn't true because it's uncomfortable for him, but he'll actually see it and decide against it.

Guns are to blame. This doesn't happen where there are no guns. The US has the 11th highest casualty rate by firearms. It's us and third world nations.

If people only had knives, they wouldn't be any less inclined to violence, they'd just be less capable of mass violence. People are still violent in Europe, but there are no mass shootings. Not often, at least.

That should be our inspiration. Prevent the guns designed for that purpose making it out to civilians. Hunting rifles, pistols, no big deal. Rifles designed to kill many quickly? Why is this still a question?

poor, poor Hillary

rigged the primaries so she was the chosen one.

spent 1.2 billion dollars on her campaign.

had to cheat at the debate with Trump by being given the questions in advance.

full undying support from the mainstream news media, all the "celebrity" talk show hosts fawning over her.

taken down by 13 Russian trolls.

and a frog named Pepe.

Cheers


I'm not sure about the primaries being rigged. Hillary was a Democratic candidate and the Democrats pushed her. Bernie is an independent who tried to run on the Dem ticket and they gave him zero support.

As for cheating at the debate: if Hillary had a few questions provided to her at one debate, it would have made no difference. Trump obviously had no idea what he was talking about. The man does not even understand the basics of how our government works, much less complex issues like foreign policy or world economics. It was painfully obvious he was way out of his league. The man did not even know what the Nuclear Triad is for cripe's sake. Hillary has ten times the experience and knowledge than Trump, on every single issue they could have brought up. The man is a blundering idiot who conned half the nation into voting for him by pandering to their base desires. Now that he's in office, aside from immigration and attacking anyone brown, he's done the complete opposite of everything he promised during the campaign.

So why did Hillary lose? Because she's a smug, supremely unlikeable candidate. Trump absolutely did have the help of Russian agents who flooded our social media with propaganda. And it did have an effect on people. Something like 60% of people get their news only from Facebook. If they are constantly flooded with false stories, it's going to have an impact. Hillary also suffered from the FBI dredging up the old email issue again, which turned out to be nothing...again. Hillary also miscalculated several states. It all added up to a very close race where Trump barely edged her out in EC votes, while losing by millions of votes in the popular vote.

And now that he's in office, his true colors are flying. He's done nothing for healthcare (he promised every single person would have affordable healthcare, instead, his actions have destabilized the markets further). The Republican healthcare plan was anything but. It would have removed healthcare for dozens of millions of Americans, while making it unaffordable for many more. That is not what Trump promised, but he supported it.

Trump said he was going to take Wall Street to task and hold them accountable. Instead, he deregulated them and lowered their taxes.

Same goes for Big Pharma. He was going to lower the cost of medicine and rein in Big Pharma. He did the opposite.

He was going to follow an isolationist policy and stop wasting so much on the military and foreign wars. Instead, we are increasing the military spending.

Well, you can see, the list goes on and on. The only issues he's stuck to is attacking anyone with brown skin and blaming all of the nation's problems on them, and the halfwits believe it. Trump and plutocrats like him are the causes of our woes, not the poor people and a few immigrants.

Mostly this.

And of course what is the GOP's response? Why everyone needs to be armed!

Is that not somehow telling just how fucked up things are? I'm just not getting this insanity along with billions of other people apparently. What's the definition of insanity, again?
Are you blaming the GOP, that is funny. It is not their fault at all. Parents are to blame here because no one wants to parent their kids anymore. Kids today have little respect for life or anything else for that matter. Stop blaming others and have the parents take responsibility for their kids and let them spank them. I grew up and never had a school shooting and gun laws were a lot looser back them

Plenty of countries have shitty parents. They don't have this issue. So it's not shitty parenting. Look elsewhere.
And those other countries don't have the gop, case closed.
If only it were that easy.
Stop blaming the GOP, it is easy to blame someone else for this problem. It's a mental health problem more than a GOP or NRA problem. Stop pointing the finger at others, we need to filter out these unstable issues from getting guns but as we all know we can get guns at flea markets if we wanted to.

1) Lots of people with mental health don't commit mass murders

2) It's really, really hard to solve mental illness. It's pretty easy to solve assault rifles

3) Hmm, I wonder who is trying to cut back on the insurance people would use to get mental health care. The GOP

4) Hmm, I wonder who it was that decided to stop funding, and therefore shut down, all the mental health facilities that were common up through the 1970s. The GOP

5) Hmm, I wonder who wouldn't be willing to spend a single dime of taxpayer money on mental health care. The GOP


You likely have a gun in your home. Congrats, you're 3 times more likely to be murdered in your home than someone without a gun.

More blatant. I'm not looking for those tags, but I've never seen them.

Then again, I don't read steam pages. I find discovery impossible there, so I figure out what I want then find it on steam.

You are why we can't have nice things.

I also like value for money, sorry.

The problem with the stereotypical consumers in the gaming market, is that hype is what they consider value. With enough money behind their PR campaign, this game would've convinced you it'd be even better than The Witcher 3, having you biased during release and much more forgiving of any bug or performance issue.

If it made any real sense, I would dare you to play the first hour of this game and tell me to my face that this game isn't worth a few pathetic hours of a day's work.

How many hours do you have in to be this intense?
And do you really think marketing is the only thing propping up TW3?

I have zero interest in this game, partially because "realism" is a turnoff for me, and tied to it, because I don't like starting at the bottom. I like being a killing machine, which almost always flies in the face of realism. Most RPGs start you low, but still capable of dealing death to something. Everything I've read about this says it's a real climb up. Which appeals to lots of people, just not me.

Similar to why I hate horror survival, and why PUBG looks lame to me. I want to go out dealing death rapidly and powerfully. Games like this just aren't for me, no matter how competently made. Personal preference. By now, I know I just want blood.

"I won't watch this... wait, Nudity? I'm in!" Inevitably it was Bill Murray's ass, but that disclaimer was enough to get me to tune in. Good marketing then, good marketing to a new generation of teens today! But probably less good, given the internet.

That's a nice grid to lay it all out.

540P though? That's a number born from, who the hell knows.


Laptops especially on the low to med end of the spectrum still use resolutions like 1366 vs 768. That resolution might be closer to 720p than 540p but we are forgetting about the sad state the integrated graphics are in. Factor in Interlacing also who knows.

Take a look at the benchmarks for the iGPU they recommend for 540p.

https://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-Iris-Graphics-540.149939.0.html

Right 768 and 720, we get those. That said, there was some good posts thereafter explaining why this could be. Still odd, can't say I've seen a 540P performance option/baseline before.

Yeah, it's not that anyone wants that, it's just demonstrating you CAN play this on an laptop with integrated video. No one should want that, but if you have one of those, it can be nice to know you can play this game. Albeit super low detail, 30fps, with a very undesirable resolution, but it's possible.

For people who have a primary pc and occasionally travel with a shitty laptop, that can be good. For people in college who game and have a roommate who is interested but owns a shitty laptop, that can be good. Kind of reminds me of how I used to play Delta Force against friends with shitty laptops in college. Man, the ridiculous advantage resolution gave me - they had to use binoculars to find people to snipe, I just had to look for wiggling pixels.

I'll take door number 3, Bob, and just ignore Salon entirely. Seriously, how fucking dumb are these companies. If they want people to whitelist than do the right things. Static ads. No takeovers, popups, autoloading video, yada yada yada. It's not rocket science. Had they done all this shit to begin with adblockers wouldn't even exist.

Takeovers are the main thing advertisers want, popups have been dead for over a decade (seriously, when did you last see a popup on a major site), autoloading videos are annoying as shit but are rarely ads and usually content so they don't get adblocked, yada yada yada. These days, people don't pay to serve static ads with no script behind it, because they want to target ads, and they want to track the performance of ads. Do you know how you sell ads today? Promise someone they'll be delivered to 5,000,000 18-34 year olds who are in-market, have a HHI of >$50,000, prefer XYZ brand, are interested in interstellar rollerskating, and be able to back all of this up by showing how many saw the ad, how many clicked the ad, if they converted to a lead/sale/whatever, where in the funnel they saw the ad, where in the funnel they left, and what other ads they saw.

It doesn't matter how popular your site is, if you can't offer that people will not give you money because they can't say what value they're getting for the money. They'll go somewhere they can.

What you say makes sense for someone in 2006, but less so today (no surprise, Cutter is loudly discussing things he isn't knowledgeable about.) For the most part, I have ad blockers on each browser at home, and use each. I do not have ad blockers at work. I see extremely little difference. The sites you need adblockers on these days are the ones that you wouldn't go to at work, maybe shouldn't, anyway.

Ah, thanks for the information. It is simultaneously unsurprising and disappointing those kind of transactions still happen on a regular basis.

It's how Mitt Romney made his millions, although I've heard stories worse than what he did.

Bain was involved in TRU, but is generally one of the better PE firms. Its founders came from consulting, not banking, so they know more about fixing companies than about financially draining them. I mean, they still financially drain some companies, but being part of a company purchased by Bain isn't necessarily, or regularly, a bad thing.

There are good PE firms out there. There are just awful ones, too.

But, with these LBOs... the people responsible usually think they're doing something fine because it could work out, when in reality they're mostly guaranteeing it doesn't. They're operating under a delusion. Few people ever think they're bad, or detrimental. I mean, look who most often thinks everyone else here is a troll with no point.
