hahahah rethugliKKKans are stupid!

Well, let's see:

They fronted Trump
They're defending Moore
They've fucked anyone NOT in the 1% with their tax plan
They desperately tried to fuck over people who need health insurance
They're doing their damnedest to kill net neutrality
They're gutting the EPA
They've gone specifically out of their way to deny actual, data driven science so they can appoint their political cronie buddies

...and the list goes on.

So, yeah, they are pretty fucking stupid.

Hillary Clinton will NEVER be president of the United States.

The numbers continue to highlight a huge swath of people who don't watch sports, and are tired of paying for it. ESPN's been losing 2-4% of its subscriber base annually, with one recent survey suggesting that 56% of consumers would drop ESPN in a heartbeat if it meant saving the estimated $8 more the channel costs cable subscribers each and every month.

Exactly, why should people pay to subsidize shit they don't watch? This is just another clear illustration of out of whack major league sports and its associated costs are with most of society. Everything from salaries to public funding and subsidies of stadiums and sports channels to the absurd cost of sports merchandise which is virtually all licensing fees. Time for all those multi-billionaires and millionaires to take a reality check and a huge pay cut if they want to survive.

Because old white guys own and run everything, that's why.

Interesting charts at the attached. I say if ownership should mirror % of race in the US (which might be a good thing as it will provide help to those who can't do for themselves), the flipside should also be instituted...the player base of all professional sports should also reflect % makeup by race in the US. Whites and Latinos definitely need help to increase their numbers in Football and Basketball. Blacks could get a ton more roster spots in Hockey.

It's only fair.

It's unfortunate you have to ask these questions on PC games nowadays, but...

Can you change the FoV?
Can you remap the keys?
Does it handle okay with mouse and keyboard?

Might pick this one up.

Yes to all three. No crossfire though

Every Fox executive tonight is praying to Wall Street that it'll be Yankees-Dodgers.

CNBC isn't? De Blasio isnt? Eric Garcetti isn't? Rahm in Chicago isn't hoping for a miracle? I wonder what they all have in common...

This is good news. The beta (*cough* demo) was very well optimized and I was afraid something would get borked before final release.

It ran at a solid 60fps at 4k with everything maxed (except AA one notch down, as MSAA was broken) on a i7-6700k and 1080ti.

The beta was a lot of fun. I never played the first Destiny, since playing a FPS with a potato controller gives me cancer, so I'm really looking forward to this.

You will thoroughly enjoy it if you never played the first. If you did play the first it's a big DLC to D1. That's not bad just saying if you put in a few hundred hours into D1 you are not missing anythign with this version.

Plus the raids are easy, don't expect WoW or Rift level progression or mechanics.

No. Simple enough. If somebody was selling shirts with Mickey Mouse on them, with the character spouting racist nonsense, you would expect Disney's lawyers to be all over them.

The only difference here is Pepe's creator is just a regular citizen without billions of dollars to protect his IP.

The only wrinkle will be that Pepe's creator only has a Common Law Copyright and prior art, no official Copyright, if I remember correctly.

Exactly. Only Disney can make money off of a racist Mickey!

I love these neck-beard rage threads.

Real genius there. See, two can play this game. But lets pick on Melania. Because Michelle's shit school lunch program was such a success. I remember Blues thread after Blues thread and comment after comment on how much of a joke it was and how kids hated it err wait... :/

"A ‘Frightening’ Myth About Sex Offenders"

Even 1% is too high so not sure what the point of the article is (full disclosure I only watch half of it). Are they saying the harsh laws enacted shouldn't be so harsh because the actual rate is half of 80%? a tenth?

This is all well and good from a third-party perspective (good for thee, not for me) so let me put it this way:

If your 6 year old child was raped by an adult how would you feel about their rights post sentencing? Let's set aside all of the virtue signaling on Blues and get right down to it...who would be good with their child's rapist getting a nice cushy job in an elementary school after they get out of prison?

Yeah, just ran through it and did the drop in co-op map too and was totes unimpressed with it all. The visuals are nice, as to be expected, but the sauce was weak with everything else. No maps - overhead and mini, no journal, shitty console UI is a real PITA where you can't even compare items side by each, nothing to intereact with or do on the map except get slightly confused as to where you're going and why, so you just run from start to finish with all the predictable enemy drops.

This is it? This is the much-hyped Destiny? Fuck, console players are easily impressed aren't they? This is just some bullshit hamster-wheel grind-fest. Yeah, I'll probably get around to giving it a playthrough in a couple of years when it's $5 or less. I could easily skip it entirely and likely will by that point.

'totes'

Having to only support 4v4 PvP and 6 for raids (if they stay with D1 'raid' size), plus not having tons of enemies at any one time might contribute to the middling specs.

What's really crazy, looking at that Guardian page, is how many of the gunshot fatalities are to old women, 50+ years old. Cops are seriously that cowardly?

No, they aren't all black criminals, random Trump supporter who will undoubtedly comment on this.
A total of 62 females out of 1093. There is no reason for LEO's to be any more careful around women, they have just as much access to firearms as men. imho the number seems low.
And of the 18 women in the 45+ age group, 7 of those died by being struck by vehicle. tldr Focusing on this one group is not the battle you are looking for.

As for race, there are a disproportionate number of "other than white" deaths that even a tRUMP supporter could see, one would hope.

I wouldn't call it a battle, and to be honest I didn't even take the time to analyze the data like you clearly did, to get some actual numbers. I did a quick scroll through the pictures shown, definitely not a scientific method. Yes, the racial disparity is shown in several formats by that page, on the other hand.

Regardless of race, 1000+ deaths a year(actually reported deaths, the real numbers are !?) directly attributed to police, is insane.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/national/police-shootings-2017/

Wealth of data there to analyze. Not sure how to download the CSV and open it in Excel. Comes across as XML for me.

"Shadows - Eerie photos of abandoned malls"

A paintball business should use that place as a map. Run different game modes. Have everyone sign-off that if they get impaled on something they can't sue etc.

Heck go full DM and place X amount of people in random 'spawn' points, maybe even go PUBG and have the play area shrink ever X minutes. Some SW dev would need to happen, sensors etc. I don't know, that place would be crazy as a paint ball play ground.

I used to train through the old areas of Philly back in the day and all the old abandoned factories looked like great paintball map areas. Make it more like CSGO.
