In Chicago, you'd be breaking the law doing that. Just sayin'

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.

Fuck GitHub, I moved all my repos to my own GitLab server when they started pushing their politics all over the place.

This is cool and all but the devs really need to go and do a bug bash. I just had a game completely ruined by a series of issues. First my liege revoked my title for absolutely no reason (he had a good opinion of me and he had no claim to my titles). I revolted, and the notification came up to call in allies, but the option in the Diplomacy menu was greyed out. I won a major battle bringing my warscore to 60%, then when the liege called in his allies, the warscore got reset! I could have coasted to a victory, now I am fucked because of that. I love this game but it's just too buggy and unbalanced to play reliably.

This diversity thing is starting to look more and more like a protection racket. "Nice company you got here, would be a shame if someone ran a negative media campaign against you. But maybe you can stop that if you hire my classmate from Oberlin as your diversity chief?"

Do they have wild fires that shut down roads, or having to dodge illegal aliens at border patrol checkpoints? What about fucktards who are driving and using their cellphones or driving and putting on makeup to avoid?

Also it needs the Prius driving 10 mph under the limit in the left lane.

Sounds like some glorious trolling opportunities to be had by role-playing Trump. Only it wouldn't be trolling if I did it, I actually support Trump.

I have no idea what the fuck you guys are talking about. Keen was super fucking awesome on the PC, I remember playing Mario1 before that and then trying Keen on a sleepover at a friends house (yeah I must have been around 9 or 10 at the time) and being completely and utterly blown away how much bigger and more complex the world of Keen was compared to Mario. We played that game on many a weekeend and weeknights, and yeah the jumping and running were kind of wonky on a keyboard of the time compared to the console controls of Mario, but once you got used to it it worked fine.

I think they are talking about the jumping in the linked video of the Mario 3 PC demo, which Keen would be ultimately based on. They aren't denigrating the jumping in Keen.

I love how it's become mainstream to be tin-foil about the NSA, while marketing aggregators are sucking up your data left and right and nobody bats an eye. Have you tried searching for your name on some of these "people finding" sites lately?

The last iteration of this was totally unplayable. Now with the quite playable EHM reboot this needs to be good to do well. As enthusiastic as I am about hockey management sims, I will wait for some reports...

Is that the same American Psychological Association that colluded with intelligence agencies to re-define torture? If so, can someone explain why I should care what they have to say?

The real problem is the subtle insidious racism present in the news sections and other areas of the site. Banning some tiny subreddits won't get rid of that.

Something tells me you have no problem with the subtle insidious bias prevalent in the media. You probably don't even realize it exists.

Agreed, Cutter.

Should we isolate groups that speak hatefully about others? Probably. Should we censor them publicly? No.

Isolating means, if you agree to company's "ToS" and that ToS clearly states you should not speak hatefully towards any group (loosely defined, and completely open to company interpretation) then you should be banned. Plain and simple.

I think there should be an appeal and audit process, as well.

Riot Games' implementation to weed out the negative mentalities worked rather well. I don't see why anyone couldn't implement something like that pretty much everywhere (games, websites, etc.)? Why isn't there a whole niche for IT companies/departments designed to 'control' the level of hatred spewed around?

I mean... I'm all for removing 'comments' sections from just about every news site at this point. It's either "thanks, left loonies" or "thanks, right nut jobs." There's barely any moderates visible amidst all the name-calling and anger-blowing.

Someone on the Internet thinks differently from me! Something must be done about this! MOMMY MAKE THE BAD MAN STOP CITING HATEFACTS
