News Comments > Steamship Ahoy - That Dragon, Cancer
25. Cancer does suck! Jan 12, 2016, 18:09 Ant
 
Burrito of Peace wrote on Jan 12, 2016, 17:55:
Cancer is probably the worst goddamned disease that afflicts man. I helped my mom take care of my mom's adoptive mother when she was dying of lung cancer. She literally slowly drowned in the fluids inside her own lungs. No one tells you about the smell that comes with someone from dying of cancer. That pervasive smell of rotting meat because the body, while still living, is slowly rotting from the inside out. The only way to mask or even cut that smell is artificial orange citrus air freshener and you learn to hate the smell of it. To this day, I cannot stand the smell or taste of real oranges or artificial orange smell/flavoring.

My mom survived uterine and ovarian cancer, as did my ex-wife. I am a survivor of childhood cancer. I know that my death from cancer is an almost certainty at this point. I'm sorry these people lost their child to cancer, regardless of whatever their religion may have been. That's just fucking awful. However, I can't bring myself to buy the game. It's not an experience that I want to relive, especially when the subject is the eventual death of a child.
Too many people with cancers. I know family members, friends, co(lleague/worker)s, etc. with them. Many of them died. A few of them died young as my current age. Even a gamer, Grungy (RIP)! :~(

At least there's an "ant" in "Santa" and it's appropriate since you're always giving us presents!

Thank you very much for your information. I have tried a few of those and planning to do the rest once I get a decent gaming rig. This brings me to the next chapter now we got some really awsum game titles so now let's talk about gaming systems I wanna know which gaming system is better a PC or laptop? Also which is cheer and also I wanna know the specs required in a righ to run all demanding titles in ultra settings in 55-70fps
P.S THANKS FOR YOUR ACTIVENESS AND THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME IN READING MY LOOONG MESSAGE

I would avoid laptops for heavy gaming. They tend to be poor at cooling, hard to clean, and often burn out the proc or GPU. Use a desktop. Even a small form factor PC is preferable, while remaining fairly portable if that's important to you.

For running AAA games at max settings around 60fps on 1080P, you should get a core i5 processor, 8 or more GB of RAM, and a nVidia 970 graphics card. If you know what you're doing, you can build your own, or if not, get a prebuilt one from someplace. This review of nine different custom builders should help you decide.
Ditto for lappies. Not good for gaming unless you don't mind the high prices and limitations. Desktops FTW even though I don't game anymore.

I'll give it an honest two weeks before shelving it.

Eh, that is about how I have played D3, but I still give credit where credit is due. They are still adding content well after the release. This one looks to have more substance than the last few updates so I might get hooked longer.
Ha, I did that with its beta.

The news of Ian Murdock's death is really shocking, even more so given that it may be suicide as a result of police brutality.

For those not aware the "ian" in "Debian" is from Ian Murdock's first name. Debian is the the basis of the popular linux distributions Ubuntu and Linux Mint.
Yep, :(. Wasn't Deb based on Deborah, his wife, or something?

Geez, reading this thread I feel like other Kali players from the 90s got on the same Linux and OS X train I did in the same way.
Are there still Kali players today? It seems dead.
