Yeah what the hell man, he's not a child. He admits in the chat that he's a pedophile.

No shit you both, "retarded child" isn't talking about children, it is a compound insult meaning "Slow of mind, unintelligent, mentally distorted, confused, stupified, numb-in-the-head" (pick one). ^^ The child insinuating they are on top of that mentally underdeveloped and that insult can imo be used as compound just fine. In fact that is how the insult goes in German, only it'd be far more insulting to call a 25 year old a "Bescheuertes Zurückgebliebenes Kind" ^^ Which does not mean he is a "Kind".. duh.

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=retarded&defid=316451


Still, it doesn't feel appropriate using "child" as an insult when it can be then turned into a defense. He was an intellectually retarded adult, fine.

And why did those women's naked and/or sex photos get taken in the first place? Oh right, because they're sluts and whores. 18 years is obscenely excessive and the judge should have his fucking head examined. Murderers and rapists get off with far less.

My sarcasm meter isn't functioning. Did you really say any woman who has naked photos taken of her is a slut and or a whore? So literally every woman who has a phone and a boyfriend is a slut and a whore?

You spend a lot of time thinking about what a "nice guy" you are, eh?

Lets not forget the disproportionate crack cocaine penalties.
While a person found with five grams of crack cocaine faced a five-year mandatory minimum prison sentence, a person holding powder cocaine could receive the same sentence only if he or she held five hundred grams. Similarly, those carrying ten grams of crack cocaine faced a ten-year mandatory sentence, while possession of one thousand grams of powder cocaine was required for the same sentence to be imposed.

Eh, Obama let all of those people out - hope someone keeps track, they have already found that a lot of them lied about their "story" as well as the O admin lied about what each of them had done. A lot of them had previous weapons charges and were running drugs with guns. Federal law states drugs+guns during an arrest is 20 years.....

Been listening to Alex Jones again? "Lied about what each of them had done." "A lot of them lied about their 'story.'"

You get that this reads like conspiracy theory, not fact, right? Also, your "federal law states drugs+guns during an arrest is 20 years" isn't even accurate. Look up 18 U.S. Code § 924.

Sorry, Bats, lately you've been batting .000 when it comes to your legal arguments.

Oh no 10! gasp! So they get 2.

Actually it is anywhere from 3-99 years, gun with drugs. Depends on prior convictions and in some cases amount. Sorry beamer if I offended you that I didn't list out the whole chart and just stamped a 20 on it. Wow - obsess much?

Isn't hard to find lists of people let out and find their cases online.

You can't just average together. "Federal law states drugs+guns is 20 years" is factually incorrect. But, I mean, if you ever get arrested, we'll just average it together, since 3 and 20 seem to be the same thing to you, no?

If someone takes the time to download this graphics upgrade, the developers figure you want the best experience so they don't bother recommending a minimum spec.

I played 80% of FarCry 3 on my AMD A6APU equipped laptop with all graphical options turned off and lowered resolution (it was mildy painful) The last 20% I played on my desktop with everything mostly maxed, it was like 2 different games.

One persons "use" and another persons "enjoyment" are two different things.


Ha!
I did FC4 on a 5 year old desktop. I ended up watching a YouTube video of someone with either a high end system or a console. Was shocked it was the same game.

Yeah its totally not the fault of the company actively exploiting something, who puts no protection into the process and adds nothing to the value chain Rolleyes You have no clue about regional pricing and only consider it from the consumer perspective.

God you're fucking useless. Think about something for 10 seconds before spewing your trashcan shit on here. You like G2A because you're a hypocritical piece of crap who wants cheap games, you've admitted it before here.

It's not even that he considers it from a consumer prospective, as with so many topics, he only considers it from a Cutter perspective.

Were he to move to Russia, suddenly regional pricing would be the best thing ever. He never has ethics in his stances, only what makes his particular life easiest.

By "generally", you mean "in my personal opinion", right? Other old school gamers I know all prefer Terror from the Deep, and it was NOT just more of the same. But to know this, you should have actually really played it.

1) No, generally. Modern reviews either say it isn't as good or lament that the general feeling is that it isn't as good. Julian Gallop himself called it "too big, long and tedious to get through."

2) Even the reviews of the time call it more of the same, only more difficult. I mean, I love Far Cry 4, but it was more of the same, as it was the same engine, same UI, and same gameplay with some tweaks. Do you think FC4 wasn't more of the same? I can't find any reviews not calling it "more of the same."

3) I do love the "you should have actually really played it." Yes, El Pit, only you've played it.



This video perfectly captures why I think UFOD is a much, much more entertaining game.

edit - actually, I love this, too. "The only way to play TFTD is to play it before UFO Defense. That way, you don't know how much bullshit you're dealing with, and when you're done, you can go on and spend the rest of your life playing UFO Defense happily." From a guy who, back in 1995, bought this without having played UFO Defense.

It is trying to break right now, Trump and his guys aren't either
party. This is as close to system changing as you are going to
probably see.

I couldn't parse the rest of the your post but I agree with this much at least. I find it amusing Obama spent the last eight years bombing and destabilizing many of the same countries, but let's get nuts over 300 people stuck in an airport.

Trump is pushing his agenda so quickly that the media cannot keep up. This will keep happening, and the far left crazy libs will keep shrieking and getting ever more desperate and violent (you can see a few of them acting desperate right here) as they realize that they are now becoming utterly deposed from cultural and government power, and our shitlord police and military will crack their stupid skulls as many cheer them on (recall the recent Portland "protest" video in which antifa thugs blocking a bus during rush hour were promptly tackled and subdued to the applause of onlookers). In a way its almost comforting that Americans have decided they will not be guilt-tripped into national suicide. It's also incredibly worrying that we have such a divided country and that violence seems inevitable because of how entrenched the neocons and looney libs are in their respective idiotic positions.

This guy is stone-cold turning screaming women and children away right at the airport, refusing to allow them to reunite with their families, optics be damned, under the furious gaze of the entire global media complex and the formerly entrenched (but now literally powerless) lib kakistocracy, and cheerfully saying, "Yeah, it's working nicely. We apologize for nothing." shortly before turning to his next major task, which is also guaranteed to turn decades of American crazylib/neocon policy upside down and further enrage the masses.

This guy is surgically cutting away at the very foundations of the globalist treason that nearly destroyed the West, that he is doing it with extreme prejudice, that he's smarter than his enemies (and most of his supporters apparently), that he's impervious to guilt trips or shaming tactics, that he has no need whatsoever to curry the approval of libs, that he will not stop until his agenda is complete, and that in fact the anguished cries of the enemies of America only embolden him further.

It's fucking terrifying and exciting at the same time. You have to admit, its an interesting time to be alive.


GUYS! I'M THE ONLY SANE ONE HERE! TRUMP IS A LUNATIC TURNING AWAY WOMEN, BUT THE PROTESTORS ARE ONLY A SMALL NUMBER OF FAR LEFT CRAZY LIBS SHRIEKING AND GETTING DESPERATE!

You kind of can't have it both ways. Also, millions of women were out protesting. Are you saying millions of women are "far left crazy libs" who are out of touch with cultural power?

I mean, I think it's pretty clear where the cultural power is right now, no?

I'm always surprised by the TFTD love. It's generally considered a vastly inferior more-of-the-same-but-pointlessly-bigger sequel. Which makes sense, it was a separate dev team that had nothing to do with the original and were just mercenaries put together by Microprose to get a sequel out as quickly as possible.

I hated it. Hated. The levels were pointlessly bigger, and the team wasn't clever enough to get rid of turns when "safe," as Jagged Alliance did. Half the maps would take 10 minutes to fight, then 30 minutes to find the final alien, who was walking back in forth in a 2x1 closet somewhere, apparently practicing to star in Doom 3.

Passports aren't fireproof, but certainly take more to catch on fire than newspaper, and I can easily ball up a newspaper and throw it through a fire without it catching. Sure, the fire we're discussing is hotter, but the objects we're discussing were shielded in bags and moving much, much faster.

There is literally no valid proof of anything government led in 9/11. None. There's just "the government isn't trustworthy." Well, Roger Clemens isn't trustworthy, but if I saw a chip in his windshield I wouldn't assume he went after it with a pickaxe...

Ah, I see... I guess that makes some sense. *shrug* Always seemed to me plenty of their advertising was pointed at non-corporate targets -- but that could be a bad interpretation by me.

Well home sales may not have been the meat of the office income, but they certainly wanted that gravy. I think there are too many free options out there, that more than meet the needs of home users, for anyone to consider paying for office 360 or a standalone version of office. Personally I prefer office, but if I hadn't gotten a cheap version through work I'd still be perfectly happy using Libre.

Libre is fine for most things. Serious spreadsheets and presentations it is not, but I wouldn't much care outside of work.

And I wouldn't want to submit a resume from Libre, unless it's been made a .pdf, because you never know what version of Office it's being opened in (and it is being opened in Office) and how it would print.

Otherwise? For 99% of home users it's fine, because those people never get into power user situations. For power users, Excel and PowerPoint or bust.

The Washington Examiner? Strike two? Laugh

Everyone loves to play the cynic, but it's painfully obvious when you are just repeating headlines and don't understand the topic you are talking about. Obama's previous restrictions on visa's and Trump's current ban on all entry from these countries are not even remotely similar. There is no hypocrisy, just your inability to discern a proper source of news.

You don't have to claim a team when you are making excuses for one side constantly.

*Yawn. It is a 90 day deal. Calm down sally. Whether you like the source or not, they aren't making shit up, the information is out there, that was the first link that put it all together

Are those better sites?

Actually, it's 120 days, not 90. And why is it temporary? What's the justification? Do you think it will be extended?

Those aren't rhetorical questions. You're adamant about getting into an argument about the hypocrisy you feel, yet you seem very misinformed and are getting basic information incorrect. I don't see how a hold on new SIVs (do you know what SIVs are?) is comparable to blocking all immigration, even to green card holders.

I'd like for you to explain how those are the same, as well.

The only reason MS Office hasn't totally died is corporate sales. I used probably every version of MS Office ever made, at work. I personally bought the 1998 version, and never bought another. I started using LibreOffice a couple of years ago, haven't found an issue with it yet...

"Outside of the vast majority of users and the largest market by a very significant amount, it would be dead."

I mean, if not for people that enjoy using the internet and playing games on their phones, smartphones would be dead. My father has been using a fliphone since 1998 and it works fine for him. The only reason smartphones have caught on is the bulk of the market likes them.

Big difference between passing a bill through Congress and just issuing an Executive Order. Which is one of the things the GOP constantly railed about against Obama. Apparently, as usual, it is okay for the GOP to do what they complained bitterly about the Ds doing.
Once again, not defending, but the media has created the majority of our problems in this country in the past 15-20 years.
Yeah, people's actions mean nothing. It is only the press reporting those actions that create problems. Obviously. Rolleyes



Obama came out yesterday and said that Trump was doing was unamerican. Apparently was ok when he did it. But i am sure you have more excuses and then blame Bush.

Terrible cycle.


Bats, outside of this discussion you're a smart guy. I'm certain you can see the differences between what Trump is doing and what Obama did.

But, given that your source is Townhall, maybe you want to be misinformed?

Obama did it to one country, and only to those applying for SIVs, not everybody, including those with greencards. Religion had nothing to do with it. Obama's came after the arrest of two Iraqis making plans in Kentucky. Trump's is on a whim with no evidence everywhere. Obama's wasn't blanket and didn't stop visas, and there wasn't a single month that we didn't have Iraqi refugees coming into the US. Not a single month. Obama's process also involved the State Department and the Judicial Department and came with warning, Trump just did this with on his own.
