Ah, that explains why that infographic seemed so sketchy to me. How can you claim a subjective opinion is a myth?

I don't get how anyone is still suprised or shocked by anything Trump and team will do after this many years. The primary platform of the republicans these days is to get lulz by owning the libs.

It's been a while since I played it, but doesn't Subnautica let you save at anytime? I'm not a fan of survival games in general, but I did enjoy Subnautica. I think that was mostly because there was a story, and a goal you were working towards, and for the most part they gave you some direction about what you needed to do to get there. Of course, once I reached that goal I lost total interest in the game. The base building stuff is of no interest to me.

As timing would have it, I'm currently on my first run through of Witcher 3. I'm about 100 hours in at this point. Probably close to finishing the main story line, and haven't hit the expansion. Now I've got to decide if I'm going to go cold turkey until the upgrade is released.

Having just played 1 & 2 before starting 3, I'd say that while the graphics were rough in 1, I probably enjoyed it more than 2. Remembering what affect albedo had on potions vs rubedo was a lot to remember in 1, but they simplified it too much for 2. They found a decent balance in 3. The fighting in 2 was also a weird mix of the Diablo-style clickfest of 1 and the more action-oriented fighting of 3.

Witcher 1 was also a good challenge. You really needed to prepare and use potions to survive some of those fights. I don't think I've died a single time from a monster in Witcher 3, yet. Majority of my deaths are from falling.

"It reaches a point where regardless of how much oxygen you pump in, it doesn't matter, because the alveoli in the lungs are filled with this hydrogel," Jacobson says. "The lungs become like a water balloon." Patients can suffocate even while receiving full breathing support.

That's it. I'm never going outside again until there's a vaccine.

Beato was a college professor in music and he's produced over 50 albums. How much more of his life needs to be spent on music to make you happy?

You are engaging with a self admitted troll. I’m sure you already knew that, just wanted to remind you.

Thanks Unfortunately we live in a day and age where it's no longer safe to ignore the trolls. They seem to have a special motivation beyond just annoying. We've also seen that if enough of them spout nonsense, and no one counters it, people will actually start believing them, so I think it's worth a comment whenever I see someone intentionally spread lies. I don't expect ventry to change his tune, but I might be able to prevent someone else from falling for his BS.

Charged for her role in the 1983 bombing of the United States Capitol Building and other targets.

I see you conveniently left off that these charges were dropped. Since you specifically mentioned only "charged", I can assume you know this, and you're trying to intentionally deceive people to think that she was also found guilty of the bombing. Which also means she had a 58 year sentence for just posession of explosives - more than 10x the average for those charges.

I've got news for you. If the US government goes to a US company with a warrant, they too will hand over all your data. And if it goes through the FISA court, then it would be illegal for the company to tell you they did so, and they wouldn't be able to challenge it.

Since Forza is banning flags now. Lets start by banning ever flag in Africa and the entire Middle East
You do realize that American's don't have much say in the policies of foreign countries, right? Like this would be impossible to actually do. You get that right?

Everyone of these countries allow and support Slavery and Indentured Servitude TODAY. How about concentrating on countries which are actively allowing the presence and acceptable practice of Slavery!
You know it's possible to actually do more than one thing at a time, right? People can both affect change in their local government while at the same time not supporting the policies of foreign goverments. These aren't mutually exclusive objective or thoughts. Do you understand that?

Watch the lefty authoritarians dance past, side step and backflip by this one with all the grace of an Olympic Gymnast.
That's quite the giant straw man you've created there. Who helped you build that? Now let's watch as the vast majority of lefties say that they are not okay with slavery and indentured servitude anywhere by any government. I'll start. I'm not okay with slavery or indentured servitude by any government. Graceful enough for you?

They were built by slaves ya know.
Actually, they weren't, but thanks for proving my point about the level of knowledge on display here.

Look, if he needs to use more words, then he will.
But he did and he didn't.

Did he really need to add in the words "force of the law" ? Apparently so.
You just contradicted the previous quote.

You guys are hopeless.
You think that it's hopeless that people think that the President of the USA - the most powerful man in the world, who commands the entire US military - should be careful about what wording he uses when talking about going after US citizens? I reject that idea entirely. He has more responsibility than literally anyone in the country to say precisely what he means and not leave room for misintepratation. He deserves every critisim leveled at him for not doing so.

But that's how it's read. They are unwritten words because they're obvious

No, they're not obvious. The obvious reading is what is written, which is that they will be met with actual force. I find it hard to believe that you have completely missed the multitude of videos of police violence against protestors in the past few weeks. The obvious reading is the president is offerring more of what's been happening around the country.

and would otherwise take up space on a maximum limit of message length of the tweet.
What a laughable excuse. Do you actually believe this nonsense? Not only is the twitter limit far larger than this tweet, but the president has shown many, many times that he will tweet sucessive messages to get his message out.

It was an "if-else" tweet that said criminals will be met with the force of the law

You have deceptively added "of the law". The tweet just says "met with serious force!". I'm sure you know this, which means you are intentionally using false information. Why would you do such a thing? Do you really think the membership here is dumb enough to fall for that?

So you think you should have to volunteer to assist the police if you expect them to help you? How fascist of you. Hopefully most other Americans will continue to believe we shouldn't be modeling our policing policies on the Gestapo.

I'll reserve judgement until I see the gameplay, but it sure sounds like they took a less popular part of SW Battlefront and scaled it down even more.

You're overblowing it. This isn't a major change and it won't make anything worse. "Replica" works just fine. In many cases it's a more accurate descriptor as well. We've also been using Primary/Secondary for decades.
