That wasn't election interference. That was paid for by a candidate. If you want to call that interference, it was by the candidate who paid for it more than the company that did it. But since it was done by a candidate, it isn't technically interference.

There was never an iPhone 2, either. iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 4. You can argue the 3G was the second, the 3GS the third, and the 4 the 4th, but that convention never stuck around, with the S never being an incremental number.

Speaking of conspiracies, a day after The New York Times compared QAnon nutsos to Charlie from Always Sunny, Reddit finally shut down the sub. The sub that has pushes conspiracy theories directly responsible for the arrest of several theorists with guns.

It also banned Million Dollar Show Extreme, which was pretty much as antisemitic as you can get while convincing yourself that isn't what you are.

Blue is fine. Article 13 has an exception for people sharing link text and "individual words" describing of the article. Very little of what he posts here goes to a paid site, and only slightly more goes beyond link text and individual words.

Not that it's not ludicrous, but it won't impact this site.

Yes, there are documented cases of supplies left, but those supplies were left by the National Guard, who had been responsible for distribution. They claim that the supplies were expired food items, but the footage you see appears to show bottled water. In any case, the National Guard handled these donations, and when they left the island they did not inform anyone of the existence of these items, nor did they do any kind of transition. They left, and left the items out without telling people "oh, hey, we have water donations we haven't had a chance to deal with yet."

Kind of hard to blame National Guard actions 100% on local politicians.

While this bothers me, at least you can turn it off. I have to see the stupid "Better with Chrome" ad on every damn Google site, not to mention them coding YouTube in ways that it is much faster on Chrome than other browsers.

You're going to need a new phone at some point, and it isn't just Apple. Do you think Google phones have a headphone jack? If so, I have some bad news for you...

I wish more people knew what Occam's razor is, or rather in other words how to think critically about things. Especially complicated subjects, on which they don't have the complete information or all the facts.

Do I think that 9/11 was an inside job? Of course not. However, was Osama Bin Laden motivated by something other than his "supposed" twisted idealism? Yeah, of course he was. Did the people in power at the time make use of a horrible tragedy, to push their own agenda? Of course they did. They always do.

So yeah, it's not as black and white as people think, it never is. But it's far from something as convulted as certain people are making it out to be.

This all started with someone posting a link to a book claiming that the Orlando shooting was a false flag and Donald Trump will save us. It went on to another poster posting a link to a group claiming it was a controlled demolition.

No one is saying it is black and white except for those two.

Oh yes, the "Conspiracy theory nutjob" defense.

Once upon a time the same people that labeled everyone a conspiracy theorist used that to cover up this false flag as well.

The Day Liberty Died

and undoubtedly despite the evidence to the contrary some will continue to do so.

Oh, good, you're relying on YouTube videos AGAIN. What is it with conspiracy theorists and alt-righters and an aversion to text? How do you guys not realize how much easier it is to manipulate you with video, where it moves too quickly for you to digest critically and instead sweeps you up with emotional tone and rhetoric?

sorry bud, over 2000 architects and engineers say no, and anyone with a high school education in physics and chemistry can see the truth of what they present. the science is absolute.

you're displaying what is called cognitive dissonance. exactly as you've been conditioned to do by the official narrative - the same conditioning that has you being unable to question it.


2000 architects & engineers isn't very impressive when you consider that Penn State graduates more than that many every year, no?

And the science isn't sound. At all. Sorry that this eludes you, but you clearly seem to want to believe that the evil is closer to you than it is. Sadly, I seem to recall you were also a Trumper...

'Jivaro' from Sep 11, 2015

"When a tragedy of the magnitude of 9/11 occurs it is only natural for it to be scrutinized from beginning to end and it is only natural for people of various different beliefs, cultures, and political stances to reach different conclusions when presented with the same facts, statistics, probabilities, and speculation.

All of that said, none of that changes the fact that the victims of that day deserve at least one day, where we remember them and them only. Not a day where we argue about who was responsible, not a day where we debate the same theories we can debate on any other day, and certainly not a day where we display our division rather than our unity. One day to simply remember the victims seems not just the respectful thing to do, it's the right thing to do.

Quote what you want (insert username), it's the Internet and nobody ever wins an Internet argument. Just know that for people who either don't believe in the conspiracies or just want to focus on the lost, your quoted links will fall on deaf ears today. They might have looked yesterday, they might have looked tomorrow, but that isn't what today is for. The day of the tragedy belongs to the victims and their loved ones who grieve for them."


Acutally we should be remembering them every day by exposing those who killed them - not the narrative that was spun around the event to justify resource grabs around the world in never ending wars killing hundreds of thousands of other innocent people.

The excellent work of over 2000 architects and engineers shows this was a false flag. They put their professional careers and reputations on the line by putting their names to their research.

https://ae911truth.org/Justice

Remember the victims, ALL of the victims, and don't be browbeaten or threatened into blindly accepting the lies we were told.

Your site is trash, those sources are trash. There are far more, and more credible, engineers and architects that call that bullshit, and incontrovertible video evidence that the twin towers fell at the point of impact, which is far beyond what could be planned.

Just stop. Put on your tinfoil and save this for another thread.

Not sure how Fortnite got so popular but I hate that style of play. Spend more of the time looking around...Give me a break...

Because you're probably over 34. Your opinion on games is no longer relevant, like most of ours here. Like ll the 60 year olds saying they'll never buy Nikes again (as if they would have, anyway.)

Fortnite is huge with people under 30, and those people spend much, much more money on average, so non-niche games are aimed at them. Not us. Better for us to acknowledge that and accept it than constantly be angry about it.

I'm one of those weird people who played and loved the first Halo on PC way back when. I even downloaded a cracked version of Halo 2 so I could play it on Windows ME because I was too poor to upgrade my OS such was my love for it at the time. I'm long since over it but I really loved those games.

I'm also long since over wondering if Microsoft will ever actually make good on their never-ending promises to recommit to PC gaming. As far as I'm concerned they are merely an OS maker.


I, too, loved Halo PC. When everyone here was playing Unreal Tournament 2003 or whichever, I thought Halo did a much, much better job.

Halo 3, on the Xbox, took it to a new level, though. The amount of polish on that from a multiplayer perspective was crazy. But the PC has plenty of other, great multiplayer shooters.

The biggest issue is that you can't just start with something like the iPhone. It's ridiculously complicated, and contains an enormous amount of components. Most of those components come from Asian suppliers and are manufactured in China.

Manufacturing in the US has 3 issues, ignoring cost:

1) It's not a mature industry, meaning there's much less of it. You can find endless stories from manufacturers about having an issue with their supply chain that gets solved based on China being so full of factories. In one better story, a company realized the screws they had were problematic. The head of production could get on his bike and ride down the road, stopping into factories showing people the part until someone could make it. He found a guy that got him all the replacements he needed within 48 hours. Were they manufacturing in the US, that could have been a delay of weeks. This is an emergency, but even with planning, you can build your factory around where the components are manufactured. You can build your assembly down the street from the screens, which is across the street from the chassis, so that transport costs of your materials are extremely low, and your team can be in the factory where your components are made weekly rather than quarterly.

2) It's not a mature industry, meaning that there are fewer skilled laborers. Some products don't truly need high skilled laborers, but tech certainly does. We don't have that skillset in the US. This is obviously solvable by training, but training is costly in that your line is running well below capacity while training, and you lose a lot of raw material to products that fail QC. And when someone leaves, you have to train someone back up. China has some awful dorms for their factory workers, but if you need to hire someone, you can pretty much put an a-sign outside your factory and have a skilled replacement within an hour.

3) Time. When I was working on a manufacturing project for my company at the time, we were moving from China to Thailand. Thailand had a robust industry for this product category, so we had the above benefits. But China shuts down for Chinese New Year. Thailand allowed for 3 shifts working 8 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. There was no downtime. It's difficult to do that in the US, meaning a factory of the same size had higher capacity.


I do agree we need to get this back, but it's a slow process that needs to start with simple products. And, of course, it would take a serious shift in Wall Street's mindset - if your CEO chooses to manufacture in the US, unless he can demonstrate a lift in sales due to that, he'll likely find himself out on his ass for not cutting costs.
