So the trailer for Wonder Woman dropped.

It's not bad. Is there hope for DC yet?

i hope she did all those fight scenes for real, cuz her physicality is amazing. like, no wire-fu or CG. kinda looking forward to this more than i thought. i just wish chris pine could be somebody other than chris pine.

Must... not... feed. Must... not... feed...

Go for it..

There is a lot more truth ass whipping that needs to go on here. so step up and be corrected.

you're so certain you're right.

and THAT is what's fundamentally so broken about the modern GOP. even disregarding the individual arguments, the specific facts, they've become irrelevant because it's become more important for the goddamn republicans to prove themselves right than it is for them to find the truth.

their fucking head-in-the-sand policy when it comes to anything that contravenes what they believe is frankly terrifying. global warming is a thing that's frankly been proven by science, yet the GOP still jam fingers in ears LA-LA-LAing their (and our) way into oblivion. and you just know it's because they sold out to big oil long ago.

guns are frankly terrifyingly dangerous things, proven by decades of gun related violence data, and yet they absolutely abhor any notion of increased safety checks. and when you ask them about it, they march out the 2nd amendment even though most of them don't actually know what it says or its legal history.

at heart, i am a republican - less government intrusion, the individual above the state. but the way the party exists today, it's nothing but a rabble of teenagers out to prove they're tougher and better than that other rabble that they're convinced is out to get them. ego has become such an integral part of the GOP's identity that they've become literally incapable of admitting they're wrong about anything, and as such they've made bipartisan politics nearly impossible since it's their way or the high way since any compromise is tantamount to admitting defeat.

i would hope their legal precedents in this case are similar to ours, because patenting math is bullshit.

this isn't dissimilar to how the NFL tried to go after fantasy sports companies for using player stats without permission. their lawyers know full well you can't patent (or copyright) facts, but they went after them anyway. took a ballsy company that basically told the NFL to screw off and the court sided with said company because it was such a painfully basic example of legal precedent.

At least it looks like Wired stopped with the full page "stop using an adblocker" thing they had going for a while.

Still wouldn't recommend lining to such a shit site though, half the Wired articles are paid advertisements.

This stuff with the Melania speech is just hilarious. Did the GOP actually get rickrolled by an intern speechwriter? What a clusterfuck.

hah! looks that way. i would've thought incompetence but the rickroll line is a dead giveaway they got trolled by whoever wrote her speech.

Chrome browser is popular around here, correct? I'm using Firefox but keep having issues with Captcha, not being visible. So I'm hoping a basic install of Chrome will fix this issue.
Blues has Captcha?

The other possibility you need to consider is that you are not human.

rick deckard is that you?

a lot of the best deal were in the not-gaming-related sections. you know, if you're into that sorta thing.

citizen eco-drive watches for almost half off. virtually all watches 30% off. i scrolled through i think 75 pages worth =/

also some really good SSD deals, but they didn't show up in the front page deal aggregator for some reason. 960 gig ssd for $164, or a 480gig for $94. you have to go to the SSD page to hunt around for them.

also some great deals in musical instruments.

oh, some decent monitors for dirt cheap. problem is i think everyone here doesn't settle for 'decent' monitors. there was a 34" ultrawide for like 300 bux. only 1080 res tho.

and yet he ignored said limitations and risks and watched a movie with a portable dvd player in his lap. i agree with previous dude who said

1) trucker's fault
2) driver's fault
3) tesla's fault

100% certainty this wasn't the first time the driver did this; i bet he got so comfortable with the tesla he just completely switched off his driving instincts. i wouldn't be surprised if he never saw the trailer at all and was eye-glued on harry potter right up until impact.

also 100% certainty there's going to be a lawsuit. i really hope this doesn't kill autodriving innovation cuz once they iron out the bugs it'll be way safer than just humans. hell it probably already is.

That's not an 'almost hit', he saw her coming and stood his ground while tailgating the truck in front and allowing her ignorance/assholeness to put them both in a dangerous position.

We share the road with drivers of all sorts of vehicles, and even when you know someone is in the wrong, escalating things with en entitled sense of "I'm right" is also wrong. Yelling at this woman is going to shed years of bad habits and make her a better driver?

Riders like this often have double standards by speeding, filtering, or lane splitting when they think it's looks 'safe' to them. Dig through that GoPro footage and I bet he's got enough evidence on himself for a fine or charge. But when someone's crosses him,, 'fuck you' for threatening my life.

i'll never understand this attitude, and the video comments are full of them. he had right of way, so he should just let the insufferable cunt bully him out of the way? that's how you perpetuate such cuntish behavior. maybe next time she'll think twice before cutting off someone for no fucking reason. it wouldn't surprise me if she drove like a turtle in normal traffic either.

that's the best part - doing this saves you virtually zero time. this happened to me a few months ago - doing the zipper merge, i let a guy in and the guy behind him divebombs in front of me as well. i pass the prick at the very next light cuz his lane is going slower than mine. literally not worth the danger and stress it causes.

I got a 29" LG curved, it only got 2560x1080 but that's ok for my 960gtx. I love playing ultra-wide games and was very surprised that even older titles like Dead Space support it.

Do you ever watch much media on it? That is my worry with curved and (to a lesser degree) ultra wide displays. I think I would like them for gaming, work would depend on what exactly I was doing that day I guess, but sometimes I watch movies/shows on my PC and sit further back and I just don't think I would like that. Even more so on anything <30.

I mean if it is something I am really into I would just go watch it on my TV anyway, but I was curious.

what is your worry exactly? cuz 21:9 is nearly identical to the 2.35:1 format of film releases.

we can discuss speculation without hidden text right?

Saying that should trigger the "spoiler ahead" flag in people sensitive to the subject matter. But expect blow back none the less.
GoT sure started slow this season but it's climaxing like a champ.

Heh, totally skipped 1badmf's comment just now.

oh you didn't need to. i didn't discuss any details except in hidden text. my responses to nin were just probability evaluations without any details.

Bought one a while back and got a refund, and bought a dell 27" 144hz g-sync instead which was miles better.

Next upgrade won't be until OLED monitors become more mainstream, cause every other monitor looks like sh*t in comparison to my OLED TV... (just a shame about the refresh rate or i'd be trying to use it for everything).

/rant

Too bad they never slap all of the technology together until 2-3 years down the road. 21:9 OLED 144hz HDR g-sync monitor with 3d and low refresh please

i might add, 40 inches plz, and you're on the money. i've checked out the 34 inchers at frys and they're actually shorter vertically than my 27" 16:10 monitor, which is completely unacceptable to have to spend that kinda dough on a vertically lesser screen.

we can discuss speculation without hidden text right? most of what nin posted was fan speculation, not spoilers. even the one spoilery thing probably won't happen at all.

in response to nin's post i would say:

1) likely
2) likely
3) next to no chance
4) i don't understand where this even comes from. hidden: sylvio was a very minor character from season... one? i think? it confuses me why fans are so obsessed with bringing him back.

my got background: never read the books, watching season six at my friend's apt (along with silicon valley and john oliver) every sunday has been a memorable time. i've been catching up by watching 347 five minute highlight clips of past seasons on youtube, so i may have missed some important bits here and there.

Papa John's is DEFINITELY the worst.

whaaaaaaaat!!? i like papa john's. like, alot. i can't believe anyone would choose pizza the hut or domino's over PJ's.

I pity the people for whom those are the only choices.

Also, Pizza Hut sells the most pizzas in the US. I can't remember the last time I saw a Pizza Hut. I've lived all across the US, and have traveled considerably. I see Papa John's and Domino's frequently. Never, ever Pizza Hut, but they're #1 on volume.

I'd agree PJ is better than Domino's and, from what I recall when I last had it in the early 90s, Pizza Hut, but that's like saying a punch to the stomach is better than one to the crotch or to the face.

socal has ample local pizza options and i still like PJs better. i don't know why anyone would hate on peppercinis cuz there's zero downside to having them even if you don't like them, and lots of people love the garlic sauce.
