They can find an Australian submarine lost since WWI but they can't find the Argentinian one? Was this thing hijacked and they're just covering it up?

I mean, it took over a century to find that Australian one. The Argentinian one hasn't been missing quite that long...

Why would we want this information? It's not like we can do anything with it. If some guy is trying to kill cops, presumably the cops already know, since they are sending out this alert. And since the rest of us aren't cops...

Get back to me when you can alert me when me or my neighbors lives are in imminent danger. That's something I can do something about.

I would argue that you ARE in imminent danger, as at the point of a Blue alert, they have indicated they will do anything to get away.

But hey, what do I know. Lets just turn off Amber alert too right? Cause hell, it isn't YOUR kid so why would you need to know that info?

Idiots.

The purpose of amber alerts aren't to tell you about danger in the area, it's to crowdsource eyes looking for a certain vehicle.

I get them from numerous states away. A cop in danger in Virginia won't be very useful for me in New York. Hell, a cop in danger a few miles away in Brooklyn wouldn't be useful to me.

According to The Onion's version of Joe Biden, that would be the summer of '87

Not gonna lie, the summer of '87 was pretty fucking awesome.

Top Summer '87 Movies:
RoboCop
Predator
Lost Boys (shit, Creston may be on to something already)
Spaceballs
Monster Squad
Harry and the Hendersons
Jaws: The Revenge
Superman IV
Garbage Pail Kids


Top Songs of Summer 87:
Here I Go Again on my Own, and a whole bunch of stuff from kinda good to crap. Movies 1, Songs 0
Actual list is
1. "Alone" - Heart
2. "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)" - Whitney Houston
3. "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" - U2
4. "Shakedown" - Bob Seger
5. "La Bamba" - Los Lobos
6. "I Want Your Sex" - George Michael
7. "Who's That Girl" - Madonna
8. "Only In My Dreams" - Debbie Gibson
9. "Heart And Soul" - T'Pau
10. "Luka" - Suzanne Vega



Given those movies, though, I'll say it was pretty fucking awesome. Robocop and Predator in theaters at the same time, with The Lost Boys and Monster Squad? And Spaceballs?!

You get what you pay for with tires, as well.

I had Falkens, purchased on sale, and eventually moved up to the Consumer Reports highest rated Michelin's. They were maybe $30 more per tire. But the difference in ride quality was shocking.

Weird. I've had Falkens on my mazda 6 and my wife's Fiesta, and they are very comfortable tires. Also grip like a champ, and have little road noise to them. I quite enjoy Falken tires. (And Mercedes and Porsche put Falkens on their mid-range cars, so clearly they're pretty good.)

They were likely lower end Falkens and top tier Michelins.

I don't get all the hate.

Then you should go pick up some retro copies of quake 1/2/3 and download user made mods, maps and levels. The thing with new AAA games is they remove control from the player and make you pay for what used to be free and everyone shared. The level of fuck you in modern AAA games is off the charts. You really don't understand how badly PC games have been fucked over with this new generation of kiddies who never gamed on PC during the 90's.

If you really want to understand the rage, go pickup old PC games made during the 90's, their level editors and maps/mods. You'll start to understand why there is such rage at modern gaming.

If you hate modern gaming, why are you still here?

You can either accept that things have changed and enjoy what exists, while voicing your opinion to revert some things back, or you can keep hanging around a website dedicated to modern gaming news and constantly talk about how everything sucks and everything was better when you were a teenager discovering things for the first time.

I'll bet the music was better back then, too. Same with action movies, and anything else you loved at the time.

Moderates in America have become overwhelmingly non-moderate.

The country, as a whole, has slid kind of further right, but our population has never fit so neatly into categories as both sides move from moderate to party lines.

So this is what Valve has been up to all these years, very creative stuff. They fused elements from The Incredible Machine with Lemmings and Portal'ed it. Derp...next release, Half Life Battle Chess!!

What would make you think Valve had anything to do with the development of this? Even the screenshot from the video says "Bridge Constructor is a registered trademark of Headup Games." Blue leads the article with "Headup Games announces."

Do you think John Madden makes Madden Football?

I won't belabor the point, but hopefully you are aware that the (D) party *always* opposes any tax cuts that are presented? Always. And their reasoning is exactly the same, every time--because some "rich people" might benefit. That's all the (D)s care about, really. If three rich people save $20 but 30,000,000 middle-class Americans save several hundred dollars + in taxes paid, you can count on the (D) party to oppose it. And why? (D)s reason that the more of your money *they control* through high taxation, the more power they have in the government and the less power you and I as individuals have. The "rich people bailout" is a scam that the (D)s faithfully use to try and derail every tax cut that comes along these days. Vote (D) in the US if you like and admire the Cuba-Venezuela style of governing--the (D)s certainly do...;) Everyone is dirt poor in those countries ("equal") except the upper crust ruling elites who are all rich. The (D)s in Washington want to be those elites--I think they dream of it every night.

You get that the rich people are saving tens of thousands and the average person is saving little to none, and therefore the wealth inequality is going to stretch, which means that fewer people have disposable income to buy widgets, which means the economy shrinks, right?

I'm fairly certain WaltC is the type of guy that reads The Jungle and longs for the glory days.

I hope they cap the FoV at 60 so it feels like my nose is against the monitor when I play.

You've got it backwards. A tight FOV feels like you're far away from the monitor. Think of it like a window - the closer you are, the wider you see. The farther away you are, the more narrow your view out of it. That's why consoles have low FOVs - you're usually 5-8 feet from the TV.

If there's one thing gamers enjoy more than playing games, it's shitting on everything.

I know I'm bumping something days old, but I was reading the Wikipedia entry for Marge Schott last night and came across this gem:

On November 29, Schott said the "million-dollar n*****s" comment was made in jest, but then stated that she felt that Adolf Hitler was initially good for Germany and did not understand how the epithet "Jap" could be offensive.

Basically, Cutter is Marge Schott. Only she was saying this crap 20 years ago.
