When are these execs going to figure out that not everyone wants to live like Calhoun's rats in overpriced, overcrowded cities with terrible public schools, awful traffic, high crime, degraded public spaces and governments who view their residents as ATMs? Of course the execs who make these decisions don't care, they get to live in posh enclaves surrounded by fellow millionaires and patrolled by private security and send their kids to expensive private schools.

I suppose it all depends on the company and it's culture. Obviously those with a young culture are going to want the big city. But for everything not them, and there's a hell of a lot more of that out there, with people from starting a family onward to those in their 30s, and 40+ crowd more likely, A nice, safe, quiet place with a cheaper cost of living is much more important. If you're writing software for a real estate or trucking company, it's not sexy but odds are you're in that latter category.

Exactly. I spent my 20s in the big city with the hip culture and hot nightlife. It was fun, and I'm glad I did it (especially since my condo went way up in value since I bought it) but now I'm in my 30s and the noise, crime, and extreme left-wing politics were getting old. And there's no way I'm going to raise kids in that environment. Now I'm in the suburbs with an eye to move to a smaller metro area.

It never ceases to amaze me. All these people want to live in the big, cool city...just like several million other people...and then bitch about everything being so expensive. It's a big country. Plenty of places with a low cost of living where you can still make good money. All their woes are entirely self-made.


Yeah, but those places aren't cool. Plus, you might have to live around *gasp* Trump supporters...

And Trumps brother is part of the board You can't make this shit up that's how absurd it is. It's not just nepotism, it's elitist class-focused scumbags pushing each other into jobs where they don't belong. Creating in essence a caste system

I hope Robert Trump doesn't know that Robert Altman donated to Hillary...

RIP. AC1 is still the best MMORPG yet. I wasted an embarrassing amount of my youth on that game.

I never heavily invested in Mad Catz, too late now. doh

You can still invest in them. Their shares will just be traded on an OTC exchange. Though I have no idea why you'd want to...

I'm still running iOS 9 on my phone and El Capitan on my work laptop. I won't upgrade my laptop until IT tells me to. I no longer trust Apple's updates and my next phone will most likely not be an iPhone. I switched to iPhone from Android specifically because of bad updates...

For the amount of hours I've put into ETS2 and the amount I think I'll put in in the future, US$19 is worth it.

George Orwell could never have dreamed of what our society has become. It's like 1984 was taught as a training manual.

I seem to recall a Trump supporter punching a restrained protestor in the face, everybody cheering for him, and Trump offering to pay the legal fees of anyone who beat the crap out of a protestor. So don't get on your high horse while defending Trump. 100% my ass. You just see what you want to see.


Please point me to the times when Trump supporters gathered outside Hillary rallies and shouted obscenities, threw eggs at Hillary supporters, threw rocks at cars with Hillary bumper stickers on them, blocked emergency vehicles and freeways, and forced Hillary rallies to be canceled. Because I must have forgot about those.

Here's one.

Here's another.

Love this guy's reasoning for supporting Trump.

And Trump himself supports violence against non-violent protesters.

While anti-Trump protestors have certainly been violent on occasion, let's not pretend it's just them. Let's also note that while Clinton has never supported such violence, Trump has.

Aww poor little liberal got his signs ripped up. It's just like Nazi Germany!

You have no idea what you're talking about. You think most of the 11 million-ish illegal immigrants just walked across the border? Wow. You have even the foggiest idea what a wall like he's talking about would cost to build, maintain, and man? It's insane.

Wow just wow, did I trigger you? Then how about you educate this ignorant stupid bigot redneck Trump supporter and tell me, how do they get across the border? Because I'm sure they're all just chomping at the bit to tell people exactly how they did it.

Do you have a lock on your door? Well, if you do, I hate to tell you, but locks don't work! People can pick them, bust them out, or go in through a window. Better get rid of your lock, buddy!

It's pretty clear from this thread that the ignorant support Trump and the intelligent support Hillary.
But we have known that for a long long time.

Give yourself a nice big pat on the back. You're Very Smart! I bet you read all the highest-quality publications, like Salon, the New Yorker and Rolling Stone!

He hasn't told us anything about what he intends to do other than to build a wall, which is the stupidest fucking idea in history. I will GLADLY debate an idea or a policy I will NOT debate on whether someone that says racist things is racist. You are asking me to ignore reality and I will not do that.

Haha yeah those Romans and Chinese were so stupid to build walls. The Roman Empire would still be around if they had just been nicer to barbarians!

Do you have a lock on your door?

LOL, Gawker moved a bunch of cash offshore keeping the money out of Hogan's hands.

Such a parenthetical thing to do.

Wikipedia is full of no life autists with axes to grind. Wikis in general are like that. The compulsive editing and updating of a single-purpose page is like fucking heroin to autistic people.

Just view the user pages of any Wikipedia editor. Every one is pure, undiluted autism. It would be funny if these people didn't have such influence over debates by virtue of being Wikipedia editors... Well, OK, it's still funny in a way. #ClownWorld

TVTropes still has Wikipedia beat for sheer autism though.

it's like the people who made Bryce took their software and threw in some WASD and controller support, lol

That's what I was thinking when I saw the gameplay videos. I thought "hey that's cool, it's like the worlds I used to make in Terragen 20 years ago" then I realize they are charging 60 bucks for it and now I feel silly for not getting in on this racket.

Very unfortunate. I remember thinking it looked neat way back when, but wondered what they'd do to keep the concept interesting past a few hours. From what I hear they did nothing.

Hold up, So what you're saying is... This is the Black & White of the 2010s?

put Yes's Starship Trooper on repeat. In fact the art has a very 70's prog rock vibe.

yup confirmed NMS is actually a procedural 70's prog band album art generator.

That's still better than Spore, which could only produce Budgie album art
