Yes, everyone buy a little bitcoin, so the one's we currently own go up in value. Everybody wins. Buy, buy, buy. Don't believe what they say. It is in no way a pyramid scheme.

It's well over $200, but I have a Sony Xperia Z tablet, and I think it's pretty nice. It's got plenty of horsepower for what I use it for, which is mainly reading comics, and watching videos on the go, and some gaming. It's got native support for dual-shock controllers. Water-resistant is very handy for cleaning - I just run it under the faucet. Also full 1080p and has an SD card, which is essential for me on trips so I can load up movies and music.

I'm still surprised by how thin and light the thing is whenever I pick it up. No other device I've used makes me feel more like I'm living in a Star Trek episode.

All that said, I still hate typing on tablets, so I get out the laptop for any real work or web browsing.

In case your not sure how politics works, when it comes to voting time, the choice will either be Feinstein, or the Republican candidate, who's always even more authoritarian.

Last time we flew, they made my wife turn power the off on her Nook e-ink reader. The thing literally uses no electricity when not changing pages. Just ridiculous.

Does the newer version let you jump right in at any difficulty or do you still have to work your way up?

The new Riff Repeater lets you max the difficultly for the full song in one go.

LesCaster,

Here's some video from 2014. Does this one look simple to you?

Session mode works pretty well. I'm not sure what you think makes it "low level". There's a lot of styles and customizations you can do in session mode. You can have the band do the standard 12 bars blues, just stick to one chord, or mix it up more or less frequently. I do wish they'd show you the actual chord names for the changes instead of just the notes. It's also a bit odd to be the one driving the beat instead of the drummer.

I spend most of my time in the "Learn a Song" section, which is most definitely not low level. There's easier songs, but some of the stuff requires absolutely mastery of the guitar.

The WFH argument always keep boiling down to

Pro: It's the way of the future
Against: Practical experience and several studies show that communication is better when people are physically together
Pro: Then you're not doing communication right
Against: Practical experience and several studies show that communication is better when people are physically together.
Pro: But it's the way of the future

It's become like a political debate, with ideologues against people with actual evidence and experience.

Not that I'd make this deal, but after 8 years he'll probably end up with a million dollar book deal, and a permanent spot on cable news networks.

How about this: every time you buy something from a minimum wage employee, tip them 20% (that is about the amount people want to raise their salary).

We get the government we deserve, and it's this type of childish reasoning that's feeding so much of the dysfunction in our government. I call it childish, because that's exactly what it is - the way a child would think. A child's solution to complex problems is frequently to simplify the issue and propose some idealistic solution where everyone acts some way. If everyone acted as the child proposed, in some cases it might actually work. Of course the problem is that people won't act that way.

Explaining this problem to a child gets you nowhere. They cannot grasp the complexity of the issue, and refuse to acknowledge that people will not act the way they want.

and you're not "locking in the juices" like you are on red meat.

There's no such thing as "locking in the juices". Searing any meat will result in additional moisture loss due to the damaged cells.

It's all pretty straight forward. The higher the temperature of the meat, the more moisture loss. Cooking at a lower temp results in more even cooking, and gives you a greater window to get the meat off the grill before you overcook it. That's why sous-vied works so well - you never overcook the meat. Brining adds some liquid, and helps the meat hold onto the moisture longer, at the cost of a more mealy texture.

I don't wet-brine chicken, because I don't like the texture. I use a dry brine, medium heat, a good thermometer, and I keep an eye on it.

And perhaps the biggest surprise is that it is all a house of cards, ready to collapse.

I think you're being optimistic. If a global economic meltdown wasn't enough to put a dent in the financial industry's power, it's going to take an outright revolution to change things, and as long as people aren't actually starving, I'm not seeing that happening.

Yeah, Non-GAAP is reserved for press releases. That can't get away with that in their actual financial statements.

Why do the majority of House Republicans hate our freedom?

62% of Republicans against the amendment
54% of Democrats for the amendment

I stopped reading after the first sentence. "..experts fear..", i.e. we have no proof and done no research.

I switched to Feedly for a bit, but I was annoyed that you had to install a plug-in to access it. I also wasn't thrilled with the interface - too many windows sliding over other windows. I've switched over to "The Old Reader" now, which I prefer so far.

There's a difference between social services for those who can't work or vets who have served this country or are disabled etc. However if you as a person are totally capable of working and would rather go the welfare route, than I'm sorry but I have very little respect for you.

I'm not saying abolish social services, they certainly serve a purpose.

So you are a socialist.

I find that to be a perfectly reasonably response, that also happens to be in line with what the majority of people I know believe - including liberals. To me, the valid discussions is the size and focus of those social services and government protections. Maybe if we didn't always have to cut through all the rhetoric, posturing and inflammatory language to get there first, we could actually have those discussions.

Those who don't have no one to blame but themselves for not being successful. It's really not that difficult to grasp. No one is going to hand you a life, go out and fucking make one for yourself.

I'm not talking about being successful. I'm talking about living. As in not dying, cause that's what happens when you take away the social safety net - people die. Literally. That's the natural conclusion to libertarian ideology. Social Darwinism. Is that what you support?
