So, any manipulation of supply and demand is "fucked up"? Context is important here. And jacking around the supply and demand of a game console is damn far down the list of "bad things" to do to others.

For most people, 1.2TB a month is way more than they'll ever need. I consider myself a heavy Downloader and I never get close to 400 a month.
I do not come close either. But it is only a 2 person house hold and we do not steam 4k content. Netflix 4K use approximately 2x the data as 1080P. So our 2 person household averages right around 300gb per month, if we switched to 4K it would nearly double. For a household with more than 2 people, and lots of streaming, especially in a year or two with more 4K content and devices, it will become a problem for a lot of people.

In-N-Out's burgers are pretty good, but their fries are trash. They taste almost completely raw. I don't like my fries medium-rare.
Eh, different strokes, but it's true their fries are unique and will also vary a lot even between shifts (whoever is cooking them) because they're one of the few places actually starting with raw potatoes, cut fresh at each location. They don't bring in pre-cooked frozen fries and then re-fry them like the major chains do.
If you're going to cook fries from fresh cut potatoes, you need to cook them twice. Once to fully cook them and the second time, at a higher temperature, to crisp them. If you're going to do the fresh fries route and expect customers to pay for it, do it right.

They might as well delay the game for another 90 days so it can support Ray Tracing upon release.
Ok so here's the Elephant in the Room question. The hardware SEEMS great, but it never seems to be hardware issues over driver issues. Has ATI/AMD finally gotten over this issue to the point where I would switch my loyalty to AMD? Cause I currently have a 1080TI, the 3070's are looking super sexy right now, and with Ray Tracing now in full swing, should I wait to see if AMD can pull it together?

I'm guessing he couldn't reproduce the hole in one in 100 tries, but I'd be willing to bet he'd get across the water more than half the time. If he wasn't at least that proficient at skipping the ball across the water he wouldn't be trying it in front of cameras in one of his practice rounds at The Masters....

P.S. - Fuck Mitch McConnell too. Is it just me, or is it like EVERY SINGLE REPUBLICAN deserves prison for treason? Holy shit.
C'mon man. Republicans aren't bad people. They just simply believe that Democrats should never have the opportunity to govern, ever.
Never forget Cleek's law: "Today’s conservatism is the opposite of what liberals want today, updated daily." This maxim explains how many Republicans did a 180 on a bunch of things after Trump took office.

Trumped campaign staffers have been fielding calls on a hotline to try to find voter fraud.
But the hotline has turned into a nightmare as staffers have been bombarded with prank calls from people laughing or mocking them over Biden's win before hanging up.
And yes, that's the actual number. I never knew you could wear off the numbers on a smartphone. I used a sharpie to put mine back on.

"reports" are not official. The fires will be immense if Trump pulls out his legal challenges. Glad I am safely in a red state now.
oh good lord help us if this becomes another Al Gore scenario. Democrats would lose their minds after all the euphoria they been going through on the thought of winning this.

i'll be up 210 dollars on this election, hopefully. so far i've had one trump voter acknowledge reality and call me to pay his 50 dollar bet.
in the last weeks of the race it was super rare to get any of them to bite when i'd ask if they wanted to make a friendly bet on the outcome.

On the topic of stupidity and elections:
Social media is to blame for the resurgence of stupidity en masse. People get into facebook cliques with people of the same intelligence level and concerns and they breed a cesspool of misinformation and mental conditioning and doubt about actual facts.
My prediction is the next decade will be an awakening to the harm of social media.
Isn't it funny how we have the worlds information in our pocket these days and every seems less intelligent for it...
QAnon, Pizzagate, Wayfairgate, Hunter Biden's laptop, "socialism," etc., all examples of people not being very good at evaluating data they want to believe.
