The hard part is bringing it back down in an organized fashion on a runway which he apparently failed at quite miserably. Seems like he should have studied navigation and landing procedures more thoroughly.

FYI this guy committed suicide intentionally as evidenced by the ATC recordings. He never had any intent of safely landing the plane. He intentionally smashed it into some island away from populated areas.

That sounds less like a suicide and more like a heroic move.

Mr. McSpadden said he found it highly unlikely that Mr. Russell had the skills simply from a simulation.

That's how pilots train to fly planes.

Jesus H. Fucking Christ people.

This is not rocket surgery: HOLD YOUR FUCKING PHONE SIDEWAYS WHEN YOU SHOOT VIDEOS. I swear to fucking God, people are morans.

Exception: you are shooting a Space X launch or landing.

This problem is the fault of phone makers (well, at least with iPhones). When you record sideways, the video is up-side-down. This result occurs because Apple requires the user to hold the phone "backwards" sideways. These problems could be fixed if the developer added code where the video always appears in the correct orientation whether shot sideways from top-down or down-top.

So curious. Can you forward to me?

"Hi, Redeye. Kxmode here.

You and I appear to not get along on Blue News. I'd like to offer a peace offering in the form of a game purchase of your choice. Let me know which game you'd like."

It's a sincere offer.

You know full well that's not the point my comment. Your snide comments are tiring.

I based it on previous posts. Sorry if I misconstrued the meaning.

Thanks and no problem.

reports that the PC version was permanently removed from WeGame in China by Tencent after complaints that it is "not fully comply with relevant regulatory and policy requirements."

It's a game about fighting huge monsters. How does the game itself not comply with China's hyper-sensitive requirements?

Hearing fellow business professionals use "your guys’s" on the phone, is quite possibly one of the most annoying things to hear.

Amateur: "How long do you expect to setup the servers on your guys's end?"

versus

Professional: "How long do you expect to setup the servers on your end?"

Read comment 22. We're not going to argue about this. This is literally a trivial matter.

You will never be able to convince him that he played a part in this incident. While the rest of the wor!d orders millions of dollars of technology parts and pc's, 1000 dollars at a time, the Kxmode will stay confused and comboozled stuck in CrUsAdE mode.

Dude? Seriously? That's just mean-spirited.

Perfect storm shenanigans
And you're sure that this applies specifically just to tech orders? Seems like this would apply in general. I guess I'm wondering why you are calling out tech orders specifically.

Yes. The rep told me Amazon requires verification on technology orders over $500. This insight begs the question: Can Amazon guarantee 2-day Prime shipping on tech orders over $500 when the verification process alone can take up to 12-hours? In a situation like mine, the answer is No. Perhaps it is Yes with other orders.

2 hours. That's how long it took to drive to Fry's, pick up the tablet and keyboard, and drive home. Massive fail on Amazon's part. The largest E-commerce site could not handle a simple technology purchase.
While I agree it was a fail by Amazon I think you are being a little harsh on them. It wasn't a simple purchase, you did do something a bit odd, and the policies which were triggered are designed to prevent fraud and protect you. There is no doubt they messed up. But I think it wasn't without a little help from you.

I like that they protected me, and yes I contributed to the Amazon's AI being over-protective. However, Amazon's AI "broke" down after it locked my account and wiped out my information. That's on Amazon, not me. It's not harsh to expect a company as big and profitable as Amazon to not have their AI get to a state where orders fall into black holes. In other words, both the rep and I could see the order, but those responsible for verifying did not. I'm pretty sure what I did is not an edge case. It's not uncommon for people to place an order, cancel it, then order again. Amazon could, for the sake of preventing their AI from flipping out, provide a way to change the shipping method on an order that hasn't yet shipped.

In fairness, I don't think that's ever done outside of attorneys being involved. For all we know, they are discussing this, but nothing is agreed to because, again, these things almost always involve attorneys.

There are lots and lots of famous plagiarism cases. Most, of course, involve politicians who get no blowback...

You're likely right. Pecuniary compensation typically isn't made public because of closed-door procedures.
