I assume we're excluding computer games, cause Half Life did that pretty famously back in '98.

100% voluntary action in every regard by every party.

The sender voluntarily sent nudes. The receiver voluntarily posted them online.

By that logic, if you tell me where you live and I come over to your house and shoot you in the head, then you volunteered to get shot.

Is this already over? Steam wants to charge me $34.99 for it.

Hardly. More legitimate question, how do you function with only half a brain?

Ad hominem attacks? Really? I've never once personally insulted you, but this is how I'm treated back? Welcome to my (very short) ignore list.

Cutter, how do you move around with all the straw men you surround yourself with?

A shithole like Somalia is a perfect example of liberalism run amok. People do whatever they feel like whenever they feel like it.

What about (to quote Cutter) "Liberal totalitarianism"? At least pick a consistent reason to hate a group.

Maybe you should move to Somalia. Plenty of guns, weak central government with low taxes, and you can step over some children dying in the streets on your way to work. Sounds like that would really get you off.

Your number 1 is just going to make things worse. As it is, incumbents have to spend a lot of their time fundraising, and that's for relatively secure positions. If positions are constantly contested it means a lot more fundraising to fight election battles, so more opportunities for bribes.

Mandatory public funding would work much better. It would also have the effect of financially evening out the races, so incumbents wouldn't have as much of an advantage. Of course, American's would never vote for it, since that's socialism. Can't have any tax money going to people that aren't rich.

I don't see how the headline is deceptive.

Headline: "Facebook asks users if child-predator content OK"

Survey question from Facebook: "how would you handle...a private message in which an adult man asks a 14 year old girl for sexual pictures."?

One of the possible responses: "This content should be allowed on Facebook and I would not mind seeing it."

The Castlevania series was quite good, so I've got some optimism that Netflix can pull it off.

House of the Dying Sun wasn't procedurally generated, but it was still a rogue-like. Not fun for those of us more interested in story than dying over and over again.

There's a lot of bugs with VR i hear, making it a horrible shit pile.

You hear wrong. I've encountered a few minor bugs. None are game breaking - just a minor annoyance. For example, it's possible to accidentally bring up both the inventory and settlement menu at the same time, making it impossible to exit either menu, so you have to restart. Annoying, but once you do it a couple times, you learn to be careful about not activating the settlement menu.

Scopes don't work yet, but that's supposed to be fixed very soon.

The game is pretty amazing in VR. Standing on top of Trinity Tower at dusk and watching the fires burning below and fog rolling through the hills in the distance. Knowing you can walk to anywhere you can see. As someone else said, it's what we dreamed about as kids.

He didn't actually apologize. He said he would apologize - and then didn't. I suppose that's a slight improvement over his tendency to outright contradict himself within the same sentence.

Anyone upgrading to vCenter 6.5 with PSC is an IT professional, and the good ones know that a) you should always test the upgrade first because b) vmware's documentation is terrible, and they always have 100's of bugs. I had to do a test run of the 5.0 upgrade at least 3 times to get a working process.

Meanwhile, back in reality, the typical Blue's sheep never said a word when Obama did the same thing.

Do you bother to read the things you post? The first article is about bringing broadband to under-served parts of cities - exactly the opposite of low-density, high cost internet.

The second article is just about a meeting the administration had. Nothing was done.

Not that I'm surprised an arcade game is rigged, but I wonder that rigging would make it run afoul of gambling regulations (depending on local laws).

I have a feeling this guy just unknowingly kicked off a shitstorm. I can imagine local news agencies across the country are going to pick this up. I'll bet most parents weren't aware that these games were essentially gambling for children.

F.E.A.R spent way to much time in office cubicles, but it did have the best enemy A.I. of any game I've ever played to this day.
