The blue wave, she is a coming.
Dem challenging Ted Cruz brings in a Staggering $6.7M in first quarter

America, the state of Texas apologizes for Ted Cruz.

Texas is trending toward purple.

With all those electoral college votes it's certainly been a wet dream dream for the Dems, but I don't think it'll happen anytime soon. At the most they'll pick up a seat or two in the house. Maybe in 20 years when there are more older Hispanic people vs. older whites we'll see a change.

Schooley faces charges of second-degree murder, aggravated battery...

I don't want to degrade the horribleness of what happened or shuck responsibility of the park and designers... but those are some trumped up charges. I guess that's what happens when it's a politician's child and not some Johnny Anyboy.

A hookup app being unscrupulous with what data it shares? WHAT?!?! Next thing they'll be telling me is there's malware on porn sites. What's the internet coming to

I mean it's nice to see the rest of the world having some realization that sharing so much personal with companies that profit from selling information is probably not the best thing, but it's a little too fucking late. Maybe if the outrage lasted more than a few news cycles there'd be something to be happy about, but I don't see that happening. People will go back to amusing that because they can't see the harm, there aren't people out there with better imaginations.

ďA month ago, we werenít really having this conversation, and all of a sudden a 15-year-old on television who would just as soon be eating Doritos and playing video games wants to tell me that my constitution needs to be changed. Really?" Butler County Rep. Candice Keller said at a pro-gun rally in Columbus earlier this month.

He just came from nowhere, for no reason, to try and get rid of the 2nd amendment. Does that kid not even know the soul crushing pain of not being able to immediately purchase a high powered semi-automatic extended clip rifle at Walmart the very instant you want it? Of course not cause he's a hateful little millennial snowflake liberal plant. Rolleyes

Between her and Santorum I'm starting to wonder if there's a requirement to lack compassion for people who've undergone tragedy before you can become a Republican. I mean shit, they act like these kids didn't just experience 34 of their classmates being killed or wounded while they had to run or hide as a mad man literally hunted them. And why are they so flummoxed that people see guns as the problem? It wasn't high-velocity jellybeans, or a Call of Duty DVD that were shredding those kids' internal organs beyond repair.

Win 10 gaming edition... boots directly to the windows store and xbox gaming app, windows update constantly downloads their freemium games, and automatically streams to the mandatory Microsoft xboxspasmbookvinesnap.

An alert driver may have been able to start braking, but probably not enough to matter. There is also the possibility actual visibility was better than what we're seeing on the camera. I certainly wouldn't blame a human driver for what happened based on what I saw, and while Uber may not get blamed, this is exactly the sort of situation self driving cars are supposed to prevent with their enhanced sensors and faster than human reaction times. At least that's the promise.

I was just thinking how awesome it would be to have all my money replaced with a currency that can gain or lose half it's value in less than a month's time.

I watched one of ninja's sessions last night, it was kind of neat watching someone that skilled play. No toxicity or anything, just a really skilled player having fun with the game. Can't say if that's the norm for him, but, unlike the Paul brothers, I didn't see anything to hate on.

Fortnite on the other hand, I can see why so many people are into it, but that looks like too much ADHD for my old ass to handle.

To be the killjoy, these crabs are highly distressed, with knives glued to their hands. Videos like this keep going around, with people thinking smart crabs grab the knives, but they're panicking crabs unsure why something is stuck to them as much larger beings chase them.

They're also food, though, so...

I don't think it's glued on as it switches the claw it's holding it with. Still no need to be cruel to your dinner.

If the prezident has nothing to hide wouldn't it be smart to let the Mueller investigation run it's course.


It would be, but it takes a very stable genius to fire him via twitter and accuse Mueller of being a democrat saboteur, despite him being a life long Republican. It's worked with two FBI agents already, might as well load up the bases.

Pigeon, I don't know what you're using now but something to think about in the future is just adding a mic (modmic to a decent pair of headphones.
https://hardforum.com/threads/perhaps-the-best-headphones-at-50.1954126/
a good thread

Blue has the Astro A40's.

I'm using Sony MDRV6s, a recommendation by someone on Blues, and they're great. I have been thinking about the need for a mic recently, so that thread is great. I actually had no idea they sold things like modmics.

My experience with one of the (non-pro) Arctis headsets was so out of line with the reviews I really wonder what the fuck was going on. Did I just happen to get a shitty one, or did they provide the reviewers with quality units and then skimp on the retail units, or was it something else? I got my refund and everything, but I'll be damned if it still doesn't bother me that after seeing so many glowing reviews what I received was a piece of shit.

Maybe video-cards will become affordable to more gamers again. Unfortunately the value probably has to get under $1k again before that will happen, and it's got a long ways to go. ASIC systems becoming more prevalent is probably the best bet gamers have of getting our cards back Sad
Manufacturers could always increase production, that would lower prices.
Eventually this cryto bubble will crash and things will return to normal.

The fear of the crypto bubble bursting is probably why they aren't increasing production. I assume production increase isn't simply a matter of turning the GPU conveyor belt up to 11, and probably entails new and expensive investment into manufacturing equipment and facilities. Simply put I suspect they don't want to dump money into infrastructure and then have the bubble burst before they can make a return on their investment.

I mean Plants vs. Zombies = border control!? WTF?

Gotta admit, had to check I wasn't reading The Onion. Politics aside, this article deserves some kind of prize for its unintentional comedic value.

Or worse, intentional satire disguised as a serious OP ED. If you read the entire text satirical it also makes a lot more sense.

Maybe it's more insidious than that. Maybe it's a Russian troll out to stir up the right by passing this ridiculousness off as part of 'The Liberal Agenda'

The article is just one logical fallacy after the next. I mean Plants vs. Zombies = border control!? WTF? Yes I'm sure some kinds of games might be more attractive to people with alt-right views but that doesn't mean all or even most people who play those games have such views. I feel like someone could make the exact opposite claim using most of the same examples; 'Plants vs. Zombies is Eco-terrorist propaganda'.

He even mentions gamer-gate and fails to mention that one of their complaints was the liberalization of gaming. Which is it?

Dumb article was dumb. I know begging the question, but prove me wrong

I loved this... loved it.

It's pretty much how I feel living in Alberta in 2018.. Idiots in B.C. have no idea where their plastics/food/cars/roads/technology come from and think they can survive off nothing but the woods and their wits.

Also with our idiot PM who is elected the same time USA has their idiot president..

If canada elected this idiot Justin Trudeau without Trump, he would be on the front page of mockery on every news agency in the world. Instead we have someone stealing his negative thunder.
We'll trade ya.

Believe me it'll be an amazing trade, the best you're gonna love it... but no backsies

$20 porn-unblocking fee could hit Internet users if state bill becomes law.

includes depictions and descriptions of any act of sexual intercourse, whether "normal or perverted, actual or simulated." Depictions of masturbation are also considered sexual content under this statute.

So, most rated R movies? No access to Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO Go, etc.

More over I assume it's easier to block legal adult content than the variety they're supposedly trying to prevent. So the most accessible porn, that doesn't require you to hand write a shame letter and pay a sin fee, would become the illegal porn. Brilliant! It's almost as though they were so drunk on righteousness they put no thought into this bill.
