Going from thinking people are crazy for somehow blocking their cameras, to thinking they're just being cautious, is like saying someone in a bad neighbourhood who locks their doors at night might not be crazy but simply cautious. Everywhere on the internet is a bad neighbourhood, the worst neighbourhood. Not locking your doors at night in such a neighbourhood is stupid.

I don't lock my doors. In fact I don't even have a lock installed. Locks don't work. They can be picked, broken or a thief could find another way in. In fact I think anyone who has a lock installed is obviously some kind of fascist authoritarian jerk who has purely selfish reasons for not wanting their stuff stolen.

Uplay required? I'm also skipping Mirror's Edge because of Origin. Funny, first ME still on Steam.

From the sounds of it you aren't missing much. The game is getting panned on Steam, not just because of Uplay. I loved Trackmania United and TM2 Stadium but I'm skipping this one.

Seems like a self-inflicted incident.
Elected for gender change...he/she/it

You're a charming individual.

You are also a textbook transphobe. I am sure you mean no harm, but calling someone "it" is textbook transphobia. You'll probably be angry, because these days calling someone out for doing something transphobic seems to be considered more offensive than doing something transphobic, but in the future, if you'd like to avoid being called out as such, please cool it on the transphobic remarks.

And you're a textbook moralizing sanctimonious PC liberal.

THC can be detected for even a month after use. The tests for that are bullshit and should be pushed back against as often as possible.

Having THC (metabolites) in your system 30 days past ingestion is in no way indicative of "being under the influence" and yet that's how it's treated.

Cutter's point was that much harder, more dangerous drugs are out of the system much quicker, while one of the most benign (but still schedule 1) drugs like marijuana are detectable the longest.

It's actually much shorter than that, more like 14 days, unless you smoke like Snoop Dogg. If you don't believe me you can get a home testing kit, it's the same test all but the most stringent drug tests use. The studies that gave rise to the 30 days myth were all shit.

Btw, kind of brutal of shitty British tabloid to call it "Clarkson's show". I'm fairly sure Hammond, May and Wilkins have quite a bit to do with it too.

It's The Guardian, what do you expect?

Cultural Marxists have already dictated that anything publicly available is fair game to be used against any ideological enemy. Among the many examples of this is the firing of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich for his donation to a pro-Proposition 8 campaign. Now the tables have turned and a cultural Marxist is on the receiving end of this and it's somehow this horrible thing?

Do you seriously not see the difference between publicly advertising your services as an escort and maintaining a private sex life? Oh why am I even asking, this is Blues News comments, the second most autistic place on the Internet behind LessWrong

Denigrating a brand by associating it with blacks and Latinos isn't racist?

It's appalling, everyone knows minorities use Boost Mobile anyway

Lawsuits like this represent the true dark side of the video game industry.

To be fair this is an issue in just about every professional industry.

We disagree on what it means for the phone to be unlocked, then. The door on a phone is the lock screen, it either opens to anyone who turns the knob or it requires a key in the form of a PIN, password, gesture, thumbprint, whatever. If the phone is left unlocked, that door has been left ajar.

Are you trolling or are you just dense? If I leave my car door open with the keys in it, and someone jumps in and drives off with it, it's still auto theft. Yeah, I'd be a dumbass for doing it, but it doesn't invalidate the crime.

I've mentioned these games to my Uncle, who is a farmer. He just stared at me like, "why would anyone ever want to...."

because its absolutely nothing like real farming.. for one, the time is x1000, for another, no physical labor, etc. etc. etc.

they distill out the "fun" bits

thats why

Does it simulate commodity price crashes?

Germany is an absolute dystopian hellhole. I would be very surprised and disappointed if there isn't an uprising in Germany in the next decade.
