Though it might, for some unfathomable scientific reason, be funny as fuck, I still feel that the story "Destroyed By Giant Egg Beaters" shouldn't be listed under the science category

Killjoy.

You know, it occurs that I haven't even delved into the issue that software is generally licensed, not bought. I.e., the people who PAY for the software don't even own it, so possession doesn't even transfer in legitimate software transactions.

Illegal licensing, lol.

Makes well over a third of the posts to a single thread, and then discovers an aspect of the subject he's yet to touch upon.

The gift that keeps on giving.

He's 12-1/2 years old now

Bloody hell, what?!

I've never really thought about it but I imagined him being a young dog. I'm not sure why that surprises me so much but it seems like you were talking about him as a pup just a few years ago. They grow up so fast

He's slowed down a bit over the years, but he remains very youthful. He has a submissive quality that makes him seem forever juvenile.

I can't speak for in the Cutterverse but in our universe, that's not likely to be unlearned in a hurry.

Who are we to argue with an expert?

Gunnar's male, ja? No matter what, he's going to have the instinct to mark his territory. It's his home, he's lived there his whole life, so he marks it as such. Why the stove in particular? Until dogs learn to talk, we'll probably never know the exact answer. All I can say is that it sounds normal to me for him to want to do that, especially since he's 'man of the house' now, canine-wise.

Yeah, this covers it very well.

I would imagine that he occasionally lifts his leg to it even with the diaper on. We had a German Shepard that did the same with a diaper on.

He absolutely does. I line the belly bands with disposable baby diapers and we joke that we can tell how anxious he's been by how heavy the diaper is when I take it out.

This is one of the big reasons why I only get females. Once fixed, they rarely exhibit a problem like this unless it's a medical issue that they can't help.

Hudson would only go in the house when left alone too long, and the experience always left her visibly upset. The idea of intentionally doing that would have made her brain explode.

There must be a way of breaking him of that habit. I've never even heard of a dog wearing a diaper until now. Talk to some dog experts online. There must be professional trainers around where you live that can help.

This behavior is not a mystery. It's called marking. It came out in Gunnar after Hudson the wonder dog died. It may be from him being left alone on occasion for the first time in his life, and it's some form of separation anxiety. Or maybe it was him finally feeling like he was the top dog in the house.

We worked on this a long time and ended up falling back on the diaper at the recommendation of the vet, who pointed out that this may not feel as satisfying as curing him of the problem, but it has the effect we require, which is keeping the house pee free. He's 12-1/2 years old now, so I think we'll just deal with it this way rather than make everybody miserable trying to further correct it.

And in spite of you never having heard of them, what he wears is a common item called a "belly band." It's actually not altogether unusual for the marking habits of male dogs to extend into the house, and this is a typical way of dealing with them.

I have a hard time seeing how this fits in your affection for the Submariner. Namor has to be the biggest dick in the Marvel universe who isn't an out-and-out villain.

Not really. He just has anger issues. You would too if people were using the place you live as a dump. He's the original 'Get off my lawn! hero.

The dude spent every minute he was around the Fantastic Four trying to get with Sue Storm. Dude flat out tried to steal another guy's wife. Total dick.

OMG, you are so fringing liberal here. Democrats drag laws in futile attempt to protect US internet privacy?

Draft, but yeah.

What a bunch of bull crap.

So the democrats did not draft such laws?

Almost as worse as the other garbage you are sharing about the internet as if the republicans just handed over the keys to your laptops.

No, just the keys to the information about what you browse on it. Is that also not something that happened?

People, don't get your political news from here; if you do, make sure you read the conservative side as well. The truth usually falls somewhere in between.

You may be shocked to hear I agree you shouldn't get your political news from here. But we do shoot for the truth that lies in between. Those reports contain facts, they are not opinion pieces.

As the other reply noted, you should feel free to submit links to refute what you see as bias here.

OMG, will someone please tell monitor makers that the curved display thing is a useless gimmick already??? Geez.

I disagree. Almost everyone who works on a two- or three-monitor system tilts the displays so the outer edges are closer. This just does the same for ultrawide single displays. The curve on TVs is a gimmick, but for monitors, it suits some of our preferences.

Medals or not they should still drive faster in the leftmost lane.

I sitting in my computer room sobbing because the neighbors dogs are treated like garbage by their owner. He's out looking for another place to live and said he won't be back until the end of the month. He's basically left them alone in the backyard and made no arrangements to have someone care for them. My heart is crushed because they're so aggressive to me, but I'd like to give them food and water. The hours-long barking is unreal, but I'm not even mad at the dogs. How could I? I'm mad at the owner for being this way.

What a shitty situation. I think this may be a reason for a call to the authorities?

If you want to feed them, I bet they'd warm up to you pretty fast, but I understand not wanting to risk being bitten.

Says 60% of snakebites are alcohol related, and 70-75% are attempts to capture the snake. The overlap makes sense, as catching a snake sounds like a drunken plan.

How did we know he was going to kick the dog? It just looked like he ran towards it.

I think it's the way he flew through the air feet first towards the dog? Anyway, the running alone is a giveaway... that's not how anyone approaches a dog to pet it.

Anyway, way too late, I thought of the actual proper comment for this.

Karma's a bitch.

Ahh the fucking idiot trolls are out in force today. Seriously Blue, you remove my post while you let the motherfuckers troll away? Fuck you man.

Why did I remove your post that got reported when I didn't remove one from after that which didn't get reported? Because I don't actively look to scrub posts, the idea is to let you guys talk.

And why did your post get deleted? Because anytime anyone crosses you, you go straight to the nuclear option. Like you did here in our little teachable moment.

Maybe all of us can work on being a little more civil? Seems like we're driving off the moderates, and I keep getting calls to ban the radicals. That's not how I want to deal with this, but I don't like the trend either.

Why is Portal in this list and not Doom? I mean Portal was a nice little puzzle game and it was followed by some other puzzle games, but Doom basically started the whole FPS genre which Halo was only a small part off...

I said the Hall is a newb, but it is not brand new. Here's word on the current roster:

Inductees to the World Video Game Hall of Fame—DOOM, Grand Theft Auto III, The Legend of Zelda, The Oregon Trail, Pac-Man, Pong, The Sims, Sonic the Hedgehog, Space Invaders, Super Mario Bros., Tetris, and World of Warcraft—are on permanent view in the museum’s eGameRevolution exhibit.
