As someone with no nostalgia about Star Wars, but recently rewatched Episodes 4&5, I found TFA more entertaining.

A New Hope feels weirdly rushed, with a bratty teen farmhand weirdly being the best pilot in the rebellion. Again, 0 nostalgia here, and I found it a kind of boring movie that moved from point A to point B with no real reason or logic behind it.

But yeah, the redactions make it hard. What amuses me as well, are the number of sites now coming out saying "See, this is why the FBI is bad." Or "See this is proof of their harassment..." when it's proof otherwise.

What amuses me is how you GGers think what someone with one follower on Twitter says, or someone that is solely a known name to you people (such as Josh McIntosh) is "a number of sites."

That anyone is passing that off as proof of the Washington Post making things up just means they don't understand news.

I don't think RedEye9 is. He means Timmeh will mistake it for real *because* it's made up - like the rest of what Timmeh believes, albeit for different reasons. "Comedy", rather than propaganda.
Ding Ding Ding, we have a winner.
Timmeh don't know what's real, I was just pointing that out. That's all.

My apologies. It felt weird coming from you, but these are weird times.

Sorry. I defended wheeler at the time. His words upon accepting the job were to defend the citizens.

The new guy was part of Wheelers FCC. He routinely criticized Wheeler. Read literally any single thing he's said about net neutrality. Any thing. It isn't like he was a lobbyist who now got paid to do different work. This guy has been undermining the FCC from the inside years already.

For every two jobs you create maintaining a robot you'll lose one elsewhere in supply chain, probably a higher paying one, involved in overseas production or importing. Companies still have large teams doing that work.

Yeah, the biggest issue with building factories in the US is they'd almost definitely be automated. Not everything can be automated, and you still need maintenance and custodians, but in general you don't get too many more jobs than you'd have managing and negotiating the international supply chain and shipping.

So you get more expensive products without really increasing jobs.

But the TVs that have HDr aren't more expensive because of hdr. They're the flagship TVs. They have significantly better specs

I won't argue there aren't better TV's, but I think the Billy Joel song using the adage "You get the same mileage from a cheap pair of speakers". For many and I mean most, there is a little difference from a cheap ass TV vs one many more times the cost that they really care all that much about. Law of DimReturns.

Yes, but this is a forum where people buy $500+ graphics cards and build $2000 computers.

For many and I mean most, there is little difference between a cheapass laptop vs one many more times the cost. But this isn't true for all. For the rest, they buy the top of the line TV.

For the rest, wait a few years and those new bells and whistles that cost a lot to develop (and develop manufacturing techniques for and can't yet be fully scaled) will be in their TVs.

Regardless, when I was in bschool my roommate had a higher end TV. His family came to visit prior to graduation and he sent them home with a wave of his stuff, as they had an SUV. In went his TV. A neighbor across the hall brought his over for the remaining month, as I was the one with the Xbox. His was a low end TV, same size but lower end. It looked like someone had smeared Vaseline all over it, relative to the first TV. I'll never skimp on my own TV after that. The difference, to me personally, is night and day. It is to my mom, too, which is why she always asks why the TV I bought them looks nowhere near as nice as the one I bought myself. My dad, though, thinks a TV is a TV and you buy the cheapest one for the size you want.

Whatever else people may think about Trump, he's got the obfuscating part just right. As long as people are talking about his stupid orange hair implants, his clone-baby son, his Slovenian hottie wife, the crowd size at his inaugration and other stupid REALITY TV BULLSHIT etc. he will be busy doing whatever he wants with the Affordable Care Act and anything else that isn't nearly as exciting as whether Melania is taking Gwyneth's advice and inserting Jade eggs into her vagina....

Case in point: read this thread.

Also, those autonomous drone clusters are some fucking scary shit.

I mean, he's the only one (and, of course, people like Danger Dog), discussing the size of the inauguration.

Most people are discussing the size and adamancy of his lies.

7. Re: I watched more DOOM videos (not all of them [TL;DW]), with a guy's commentaries, from YouTube... Jan 23, 2017, 10:55 Beamer
 
I am 100% certain I am better at firing a gun thanks to video games.

I'm also better at surgery, running a lemonade stand, figuring out how to power an entire city, and leading a 6 person squad in a stand against aliens.

Now, I'm probably not particularly good at any of this (well, I'd crush a lemonade stand), but I'm better. Because a tiny bit of understanding that's 10% accurate is better than zero understanding.

Also, I only played Mass Effect for about 10 minutes, but I think I could still seduce a blue person.

So Sean Spicer (Trump's press secretary) just had a press conference where he literally yelled at the media for accurately reporting the fact Trump had about 60% fewer in attendance at his inauguration than Obama did in 2009. Photo evidence proves about 1/2 as many showed up as Trump prepared for. Thousands of people on the ground confirmed the numbers. He is using the number of Metro riders as proof X amount of people were at the inauguration, but Trump protestors were also using the Metro yesterday and today. In fact, many estimate the number of protestors today dwarfed the number that turned out for Trump's big day. Sad to see the *White House Press Secretary* yelling at the media for reporting facts on Trump because it bruises Trump's fragile ego.


Yeah, kinda stupid statement. I would have put it better:
"Look at the weather and compare it to Obamas inaugurations."

Obama's 2009 inauguration was in the high 20s. Trump's was high 40s, with some light rain.

http://wtop.com/weather/2017/01/inauguration-weather-friday-years/slide/1/
Rain at those temperatures can mess you up really badly.
I shouldnt have to tell you that.

Whether (heh, "weather!") true for all/most or not, a proper politician would have gone with what you're saying. That's spin. It isn't a lie, but it's a new angle to view the facts.

Instead, they just made up facts, then got angry when people disagreed. You're right, being rained on in 40 degree weather is really unpleasant. Is that worse than 20 degree weather? Depends on the person, but it's a perfectly valid belief for why crowds were down.

Gee, I don't know

You don't know, so you're giving me a completely irrelevant link to change the subject?

Satire is lost on some people. It's completely irrelevant that the media continue on it's tirade of bashing Trump and inflaming hatred with nonsensical reports on sizes of crowds, okay.


"Nonsensical" = accurate. Show me a single MSM report on the crowd sizes that isn't accurate.

Meanwhile, you are still ignoring that the Press Secretary flat out lied. Somehow, to you, that's the fault of the media. It's mind-blowing to me. Had they just said "the crowds were large and we're very happy with the turnout on this rainy January morning" people would have been fine, but that isn't what the Press Secretary did. He claimed it was the most viewed ever, both in person and on TV. Both those statements are provably false.

And then, when pushed, the White House continued by calling it not a lie but "alternate facts."

Yet you're still harping on news reports you imagined.

I did already, that link down below "Donald Trump inauguration crowds fail to fill National Mall"

the CNN giga picture shows the crowd going all the way back.

you're right they shouldn't call it "alternate facts" they should just call it what it is, "fake news".

The angle of the Gigapicture isn't right to see how far back it goes. Even still, when you zoom, you see all the white space.

Try this, for multiple angles.

Ok, you're fighting a strawman. NO ONE SAID "NOBODY SHOWED UP!"

People said it wasn't as well attended as Obama's. You're here, making things up, and desperately not responding to your team (and you seem to be treating this like it's sports, so that makes sense) saying "this was the largest gathering for an inauguration. Period."

No one said "nobody showed up," but the PRESS SECRETARY said "this was the largest ever." Why are you so desperately dancing around that?

*cringe*

That is pathetic. Are you so gullible because you're not brave enough to accept that supporting Trump was huge a mistake?

I love that he's blaming the media and a "false narrative."

He's utterly ignoring that only Trump called it the biggest ever. The media never once said it wasn't attended, they said it was less attended than Obamas, which is factually true. Trump came out and said this was wrong, and was the biggest and most attended ever.

A true believer, though, can't question Donald, much like Kim Jong In can't be questioned. Instead, it's everyone else's fault that Donald Trump was forced to lie over something so insignificant.

But the TVs that have HDr aren't more expensive because of hdr. They're the flagship TVs. They have significantly better specs, which hdr is part of but they're better regardless. They're also thinner and more elegantly designed.

It isn't like they're taking a model, adding hdr, raising the price and calling it a day. It's just new tech solely in the flagship models. Over the next two years it'll trickle down to regular models. These things always do. But they start in the top models while companies figure out manufacturing.
