Picture of the Michigan "man" who called up CNN and threatened to shoot them for being "fake news."

Scrawny 19 year old internet edgelord, instead of fat middle aged erectile dysfunctioning redneck this time it seems. Trump supporters aren't sending us their best.

aren't? i haven't seen them get much better than this.

Noticed this story on Net Neutrality in the NYT. It will be interesting to see if the GOP run FCC decides to "do something" about it. I mean they shouldn't have a problem since they are the "state rights" party, but I'm guessing they'll conveniently forget that in this case...

they're not states' rights anymore. they're rich and wealthy rights now. they've completely sold out to the koch brothers and donald trump. they don't stand for anything but greed.

Yep, RAM prices, HDD prices, GPU prices, Meltdown & Spectre... Worst time ever to buy a PC. I need a new one soon too. I guess I will have to wait 1 or 2 years longer, even if the prices drop to normal levels again, because Meltdown & Spectre will probably only be fixed in 1 to 3 years.

always upgrade during black friday. i got a 1600x for $180; even with proposed amd price cuts they'll be above $200. also got a vega64 liquid for $699. i just looked at video card prices and i could sell it used right now for nearly double that.

Playboy has filed a lawsuit against Boing Boing, accusing the offbeat news blog of copyright infringement for linking to an Imgur gallery and a YouTube video that showed every Playmate centerfold.

So uh.. where was this Imgur gallery link? I'm practicing my law stuffs and need to do some research.

Edit: Nevermind... it's been removed. I was not one of the lucky 2 million that viewed that link.

Isn't that protected free speech? They're reporting on work done by someone else. If it turns out that person broke the law, that has nothing to do with reporting the activity.

normally yes; the supreme court has found that merely sharing a link is not a copyright violation. however the money making aspect does muddy things, like it does for fair use. i think it would have to be pretty blatant though, like, click this link to see free titties. not just an article about the history of erotica or somesuch.

I don't believe Chris Nolan has made a film that I did not like. He is an amazing director and writer with the ability to move from genre to genre effortlessly. I wonder if he has become this generation's Stephen Spielberg. I say that because Spielberg's work has suffered for more than a few years. Thoughts?

Nolan's an amazing director. I'd agree that he could be the new Spielberg. He even goes for the same schmaltzy emotional beats.

Does that make Zimmer this generation's Williams, given that he always scores Nolan's movies, as Williams has done for Spielberg?

too bad zimmer doesn't have half of john williams' gift for composition. zimmer's music is all variations of three or four chords with a barf-inducing BLARRRRRRRGH mixed in. he makes it sound good, i'll give him that, but listen to his work next to williams' superman theme or empire strikes back and the difference in musical complexity is obvious, even to a layman.

Could Modern Humans Survive An Asteroid Impact, Like What Killed the Dinosaurs?

Preppers?

The real question is, would you want to? I've never accepted the idea of 'life at any price'. Just clinging to life until you run out of food/water/heat? Why? I like some of the tales I've heard about the Hawaii thing with people getting drunk on special stuff they were saving or going out surfing or what have you. Embracing the end with gusto! I'd much rather be at the point of impact and vaporized instantly than let it drag out. Yeah, naked, covered in food, double fisting a couple bottles of booze and trying to time leaping off the tallest building I could find with the impact so I'm vaporized in mid-air so I could go out freeeeee....free fallin'! Better still, hang-gliding naked into ground zero!

Now, on the other hand, if there was a Vault...


I dunno, repopulating the Earth could be fun.

and how would you feel if the last girl on earth was like, '...nah i'd rather go extinct.' that might feel worse than going extinct heheh.

here's the reddit thread of the pornhub article. the comments are fucking hilarious:

reddit

one thing i didn't see mentioned; post alert recall, traffic spiked up to +48 percent of average. eyeballing the graph, standard deviation looks to normally be about +/-10%. which means roughly three standard deviations worth of people went on a furious post-alert life-affirmation wank XD

and not for nothing, but there were also significant spikes well above average an hour and two hours after all clear. lotta rebound wanks too =D

Each of us was either an engineer, researcher, or scientist. Therefore, none of us had the prowess, know-how, or inclination for physical combat. Much less to debilitate an armed assailant.

Which sentence best follows:

  • So, they taught us methods on how to isolate a perceived threat from ever making contact with us.


  • So, they taught us methods on how to isolate a perceived threat before it made contact with us.


  • So, they taught us methods on how to isolate a perceived threat before it could make contact with us.

  • 3 imo. the 'could' preserves the hypothetical aspect of the preceding sentence. 2 implies contact was actually made; 1 is kinda awkward cuz 'isolate' doesnt work well with the predicate. 'prevent' would work better.

    New California declares independence from California in statehood bid.

    Dumb. It looks like a gerrymandered district. California's power comes not only from its size, but also from it's symbiotic relationship between the urban and the rural. This gives it the ability to effect change at the national level, as many laws that CA makes are subsequently adopted or become defacto law in other states. Break it up, and that power is diminished.

    Also, those rural counties depend on the revenue generated by the cities to fund their infrastructure.

    just more ignorant alt-rightism masquerading as social justice. the fair way to split the state is north/south, but these idiots want to split it almost exactly on political lines - the urbanized coast is highly democratic while the rural inland is highly republican.

    another thing that shouldn't be ignored is that these yokels want to give (i'm guesstimating) 85% of the land to (also guesstimating) 20% of the population. naked republican greed at its finest. all their complaints are ridiculous because california ranks middle of the pack in standard of living; far from the actual shithole that is most of the rural red states these idiots dream of being. this is nothing but a bunch of right-wingnuts who've lost all national perspective and cant stand the idea of democrats telling them what to do even though they benefit immensely from our government. just... the shameless greed and narcissism kills me, to complain about living here like it's some kind of hell when that's pretty much the opposite of the truth. and then to use that as an excuse to steal all the land. soulless fucks.

    They Are Billions moving up in the ranks! I do so want to play this, just when it's finished.

    It's a pretty great game right now, nothing game breaking or bugs that end the game.

    What needs to happen is units like Soldiers and Lucifers need a rebalance pass to make them useful.

    lucifers pretty pointless. his range is way too short. soldiers are pretty powerful though, especially in numbers, with veteran status and how cheap they are. couple other things i would buff too. snipers' rate of fire; dead zone around towers reduced. 100% win is way too hard right now.

    RIP Keith you were the GOAT.

    Getting old fucking sucks! Seems like everyone I enjoyed watching and listening to is passing away.

    underrated part of my childhood was listening to all the hall of fame announcers in the LA area - among the best in each. keith jackson doing USC games; vin scully doing the dodgers; bob miller doing the Kings; chick hearn doing the Lakers. and now they're all gone. man time sucks.

    It's a game that I want to like but the zombies aspect makes me realize I just want Warcraft IV. So sick of swarms of fucking zombies.

    Yeah, why has Blizzard put off making Warcraft 4 for so long? It'd basically sell 600 million copies in the first week, if they made it nothing more than a rehash of WC2 or WC3.

    I'm somewhat interested in They Are Billions, just for the building aspect, but I hear it gets quite repetitive, and it's still early access, soo.... I'll wait for a real release.

    it is repetitive, but it's also incredibly challenging, enough so that every game feels like its own experience. every map is generated on the fly as far as i can tell so even if it looks similar, the tactical experience can vary greatly. being early access and as cheap as it is, it's totally worth it to scratch my RTS itch.

    don't see how this is legal. no one signs a licensing agreement when they buy a video card. it's ours to do with as we please. it'd be like buying a car and then maker tells you you're only allowed to drive it on freeways. horseshit.
