Oh, yes. This game. The other failure I backed. I've been very disappointed with what the devs delivered so far. Even by 1990's standard, it's bad and amateurish.

I'm thinking maybe he's constipated or something. He always seemed to be an ok guy before and now, out of nowhere he starts acting like a bored 16 year old commenting on Youtube, trying any way to start trouble. Disappointing. I hate to throw anyone on the 'Ignore' list but he may have to join Redmask if he doesn't find something else productive to do with his spare time... *shrugs*

To me, it looks like a basic comprehension problem. I've met people in the ministry who cannot understand basic things or direct their thoughts to a logical conclusion. For example, I asked a person (who believed in the Trinity), "At Habakkuk 1:12 it reads, 'Are you not from everlasting, O Jehovah? O my God, my Holy One, you do not die.' If one cannot die (Jehovah), and the other can (Jesus), wouldn't this negate or devalue the concept of the Trinity?" I kid you not, the person gave me a questioning look and then replied, "Yeah, but John 1:1 states..." At that point, I could only "sigh" internal and politely excuse myself.

amen, now keep your word.
I didn't force you to read my comment in this thread. The hidden text and notification implies that. If you are unable to handle my comments maturely, perhaps it would be best for you to stop reading them.
I would no sooner read your comments than I would read comments about the moon being made out of cheese or the earth being flat. I take that back, I have read a couple of posts where you mention the amount of time it took you to cut and paste your replies, it's always quite humorous.

I truly have no idea how you can take my comment (source):

"I wonder if you guys realize how much time it takes to write these posts? I know many of you criticize "copy-pasta." I agree that someone should be knowledgeable about a subject to explain it in his or her words. I am not exaggerating when I state this post alone took about two hours to put together. Hope you appreciate the effort, even if you roll your eyes at the content."

And translate it into:

"I have read a couple of posts where you mention the amount of time it took you to cut and paste your replies, it's always quite humorous."

My comment states it took two hours to write the post in question BECAUSE I didn't cut and paste (a.k.a. "copy-pasta").

The only conclusion I can come up with is you have a serious retention and comprehension problem that is NOT on the same level as my research into many religions presented in an organized way. To be clear, I am NOT saying you lack the ability to read; I only question your ability to understand (or process what you read into proper meaning). Your posts appear to indicate this. Furthermore, I see this lack of understanding in your posts directed towards others. It becomes apparent when you turn hostile.

That said, I'm not addressing your "moon being made out of cheese or the earth being flat" remark since I never made such a comment or even hinted at it. I'm sure somewhere upstairs in that brain of yours, you're thinking about a post I made, but I assure you, you won't find one.

In a nutshell, everything you write either makes no sense comes across as incoherent, aloof in meaning, or made up and more probably a combination of all. I do feel sorry for you at times and hope you mitigate your mental funk.

When you write multiple paragraphs it is sometimes hard to glean what it is that you're trying to say.

TLDR Less is more, clarify, refine and condense. Not everything has to be War and Peace.

Because some people are incapable of basic comprehension or, you know, bothering to educate themselves on the topics of conversation.

you know what the bible says about that?

And Saul said, Thus shall ye say to David, The king desireth not any dowry, but an hundred foreskins of the Philistines, to be avenged of the king's enemies. But Saul thought to make David fall by the hand of the Philistines. And when his servants told David these words, it pleased David well to be the king's son in law: and the days were not expired. Wherefore David arose and went, he and his men, and slew of the Philistines two hundred men; and David brought their foreskins, and they gave them in full tale to the king, that he might be the king's son in law.

- Samuel Ch. 18

Reply below:

Not exactly sure what this means in the context to anything, however, the simple summary of the passage is King Saul had become fiercely jealous of David's growing popularity with his cabinet and subjects. When David was in a position to ask the king to marry his daughter Michal, Saul didn't want money (a standard gift offering). Instead, he gave David a task for which Saul believed would certainly end David's life. Of course, when David returned and gave Saul TWO hundred foreskins (gross) this made Saul angrier. Saul forgot one little detail of his scheme. Jehovah was backing David and would guarantee his success in whatever he did.

Patently untrue. It's cooled off since last year, sure, but it's still in the Top 5 grossing apps on both iOS and Android and last month cleared $1 billion in total revenue. Do you know how many thousands of app devs would literally kill to have a product of theirs be that successful?

I originally wrote "nobody," but I knew that's simply not true. So I used "anyone hardly" based on my coworkers. There were at least 7-8 people enamored with p-GO at release. Almost daily they would coordinate outings during their lunch breaks to find Pokemon. None of them play today. They roll their eyes if reminded of the time they used to play. Just wanted to make clear that I was careful with the words I chose so as to not paint with an over-generalizing brush.

Like this line from Gladiator.

"Ultimately, we're all dead men. Sadly, we cannot choose how but, what we can decide is how we meet that end, in order that we are remembered, as men."

Bible stuff below, hidden for those who are apathetic to such things.

That line very much reminds me of Ecclesiastes 7:1, "A name is better than good oil, and the day of death than the day of one's being born." Someone may ask why the day of one's death would be better than the day of one's birth? Because at birth a person has no established reputation. Their personal slate is blank, and their life course will result in either a positive or a negative reputation. For those who have established a good name over the years, the day of death is indeed better in that respect than the day of birth.

Another line: "Brothers, what we do in life... echoes in eternity."

This is the same case with Jehovah. Having a good name with Him "in life" based on "what we do" results in "echoes in eternity" at death in remembering our deeds. Fascinating! Refreshing to find metaphor similarities between scripture and film. Thought you might find the comparison interesting.

I have choice words about this, but I'll merely say this is a big slap in the face to gamers who was on the receiving end of Sean's, shall we say, rather opaque exaggerations of the facts. This vexes me. I'm terribly vexed. Brood

I wonder if market saturation is VR's "killer app." That said, not including an estimated street price and hardware spec is suspicious. We didn't hear about pricing and requirements for the Rift and Vive until much closer to launch. The response wasn't good, except hardcore enthusiasts. My former coworker was like a diehard member of the Church of VR. Daily he'd sing the technology's praises and continued to try and convert me not realizing that $1,500 was out of my budget. Glad he's gone. He was such an arrogant hipster. Yes, he was that image you have in mind.

That's the kind of dreaming/thinking that got you to give Chris Roberts hundreds, if not a thousand dollars to start with.

I'm not a game developer. You can't hold me to the same standards! It's just an idea. Obviously a professional would take this idea and figure out how to make it work within a defined budget, scope, and timeline.

Kosumo wrote on Mar 1, 2017, 21:57:
This whole project is bulit on lies.

Perhaps, but I would argue Sean Murray actually built his game on lies to make millions from unsuspecting gamers. His conversation with Stephen Colbert on nation television (which, is unheard of. I've never seen a game dev invited on a late night talk show).

Stephen: Do we ever get to see ourselves?
Sean: No. You don't see yourself, so the way for you to know what you look like is for somebody else to, you know, see you.
Stephen: Can you run into other people, other players in the game?
Sean: Yes, but the chances of that are incredibly rare just because of the size of what we're building.
Stephen: Wow.

Wow, indeed. Liar!

Chris has no doubt made some crazy promises and commitments, which, as a backer, I made them a point of dispute for no longer wishing to back the project and for requesting a refund. However, the game hasn't shipped. Until that happens, we can't call him a liar. He will be judged on what he ships eventually, not on what he's building today.

Does that make sense?

PayPal isn't taking any money from charity.
Donations made to non-registered charities are held by PayPal for six months before being transferred to other not-for-profit organizations, according to the suit.

Perhaps not, but the article states, "Not only did PayPal not notify Kass that her donations had not been received, but the company did not inform the charities that they needed to register in order to receive the funds intended for them, the suit alleges." I am positive Paypal moved her money combined with the other 7B in donations into some sort of "slush" money market account to primarily make money from interest. In other words, the money is simply not sitting in Paypal as a trust for the charities to claim. They put it to work. This is not strictly speaking illegal, but it is most definitely immoral, unethical, and done in very poor taste.

The suit stems from the experience of Terry Kass, an Illinois resident who used PayPal’s system to donate $3,250 to 13 local and national charities in late 2016. Kass had received an email from PayPal promising an additional 1% donation from PayPal if she used their platform, the suit states.

Kass searched for the charities she wanted – including the North Shore Health Center, Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation, Chicago Foundation for Women, and the Highland Park-Highwood Legal Aid Clinic – and found a special PayPal page for each one. The PayPal sites promised that 100% of her donation would go to the chosen charity.

After making the donations, however, Kass learned from an employee of the legal aid clinic that her donation had not been received. Kass pursued the issue with PayPal and learned that 10 out of her 13 charities were not registered with PayPal Giving Fund.


Oh, my goodness. If this turns out to be the case this is some high-level shenanigans! I think it's worse than Wells Fargo because needy charities are involved.

On this note, a company reached out to me today to interview for a job in downtown Chicago. They'd increase my salary, and offer a 60% bonus over a 30% bonus. It'd ultimately be a $86,000 raise, though much of that $86,000 would be bonus and taxed somewhere in the vicinity of 50%.

It's downtown Chicago, not even an hour commute, but... Chicago is one of the few cities I know no one. Is $86,000 pre-tax really worth it? I get that, to some, that's a horrifically obnoxious question, but still one I need to ask. Not even like I have the offer, just a first round with HR.

Not sure about Chicago or the state of Illinois but from a Fed level you usually benefit from a good sized refund. My bonuses in California are taxed at a high amount (like 50%). Between my salary and bonuses, I paid something like $12K in taxes and I was still able to get a decent return. I also have a mortgage and pay property taxes so that refund is even higher. One more reason to buy a home. Best long term investment ever! Thumbsup
