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.

it sucks for us that have to wait to find one at retail prices, but robbery is a bit extreme. i do believe in capitalism, esp. for non-critical items. a healthy resale market is mostly a good thing for consumers, and if this is the price, i'm willing to wait.

i'm curious if that group were a bunch of scammers or if they had any official connection to trump. i doubt 'legal incompetence' is grounds for a lawsuit, but fraud would be. still hard to believe anyone with real money would buy into trump's transparent lies of election fraud. you'd figure to be worth that you'd have at least, i dunno, 3 braincells to rub together.

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.

unless they're doing something wonky with their compression, 4k should be 4x the data bandwidth of 2k, not double.

blue if you'd prefer not to deal with the caps, look into joining the Starlink beta. $100/mo for around 100Mbit down; faster as they add more satellites. also the ping is around 40ms and stable enough to game on. people are posting their usage experiences with starlink all over youtube and imo it's worth looking into. it's fascinating to me how under-the-radar this is. if this works it will revolutionize internet access - 100Mbit internet anywhere in the world. greedy ISPs like comcast will be fucked out of existence.

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.

in-n-out secret menu from a double double pro: order your fries lightly well done. they cook a little longer and end up crispier. you can also order them well done but they end up crunchy. make sure you say 'light-well.' there's also the option for 'light' fries, which are barely cooked at all. i made that mistake once. for my burger i also always get whole grilled onion, which is a whole round slice of onion grilled in your burger. there's also animal style but everybody knows that one.

i believe they do, but their video hardware is based on a gimped version of big navi so it'll be even worse than what we get on PC.

edit: in reply to Helf's question. how do you delete a comment around here now?!?

They might as well delay the game for another 90 days so it can support Ray Tracing upon release. /s

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?

if ray tracing is the goal then stay away from AMD this gen. this is their first attempt at raytracing hardware and it shows. in benchmarks that i've seen it 2x to 3x slower than comparable nvidia. if you can live without RT then AMD is a good deal - $50ish bux cheaper like for like for comparable performance. might be a driver thing, but i doubt a driver fix could improve performance by 100 to 200%

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....
i don't know much about golf, but i enjoy the masters for the scenery and slow burning competitiveness, and skipping balls across that pond is a bit of a tradition.

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.


if the democrats win back the senate i think the single most important law they can pass is that all laws and nominations must receive a vote within 30 days. obstructionism must not be a tool of governance because all it does is hurt the people in the name of politics. at the very least that would take one of shitty mitch's most important tools of the dark arts away.

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.
1-888-630-1776

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. Wink

i'm not usually in favor of civil sabotage... but damn they fuckin deserve it. the election is over, legitimate, with zero evidence of impropriety. they just need to be shut down.

regarding kamala harris, this is what i said earlier in a facebook post:

"the stupidest shit i've seen last few days is my republican friends, telling me kamala harris is this horrible person, meanwhile YOU VOTED FOR THAT AMORAL SOCIOPATH TRUMP. like, the lack of self-awareness and/or hypocrisy is astounding. anyone that supported trump has lost all moral authority to judge the character of others. you can't say harris is a bad person while at the same time support a likely tax evading/sexual assaulting/pathologically lying/racist piece of shit like trump."

i actually don't know her situation all that well, but i highly doubt she's anywhere near as bad as all the evil shit trump's done.

"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.

sorry but you're not stealing this one son. trump would have to flip about a half dozen states, not just one, and biden's leads are far larger than what happened in florida. this is nothing like 2000 - trump is just acting out his inner manchild tantrum cuz the bully got ganged up on by the good kids in the playground.

interesting thought experiment (aka i probably enjoy spy stories entirely too much): trump has long since been regarded as persona no grata in U.S. banking circles for all his bankruptcies, so he's forced to go begging to deutsche bank for a massive loan. deutsche has known ties to the russian mob which almost certainly has connections to the russian government. supposition: this is when trump became a russian asset - a known and influential american celebrity is suddenly hard up for money, has a laundry list of other known vices, and his loyalty to anything but himself is tenuous at best. it's not hard to imagine the russians convincing the germans to give him the loan in exchange for whatever they feel like asking for in the future. a loan of that size is basically selling your soul to the devil. difficulty: it's difficult to imagine the russians guaranteeing a loan that big, especially for a celebrity who at the time had little connection to US political circles.

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.

what were your bets, if i may ask? just that trump would win? this election was way closer than i ever guessed it would be, but still almost statistically impossible for trump to win. he would've needed to flip almost every battleground state to pull it off, and how likely is it that if you flip a coin 10 times, it'll all be heads? that's what he was up against. not a bet i'd ever take, but trump supporters aren't known for their deep understanding of statistics.

a little bit of branch prediction (cuz i play chess and it's fun), almost certainly trump will run for president again assuming he's not thrown in prison at some point. his amoral sociopathic ego won't allow him to just accept a defeat. he is psychologically compelled to fight on so that he doesn't have to accept being a loser.

that's a bit extreme on oregon's party. i'm pretty progressive socially, but all drugs? a lot of it is illegal for good reason - it fucks up people's lives. also they're still 100% illegal federally, and unlike weed i doubt the feds will turn a blind eye to abuse of psychodelics and cocaine n shit.

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.

stupid has always existed on the fringes. it's gotten wide spread appeal because of the stupid bullhorn that is fox news. because they're considered a mainstream news source instead of some midnight conspiracy theorist cable access show, the right just gargles and swallows all the stupid they peddle without any critical thought. it is absolutely insane to me that so many americans are still voting for trump even though he will certainly be remembered as the worst president in history, and the only rational explanation i can think of is that they only listen to fox news bobbing his knob.
