Really? Wow, old age sucks. I don't remember there being 12 player capability. Yeah, I can imagine the graphics probably don't seem very good any longer...

They certainly weren't vocally talented. But they were in the right place at the right time. I hope they managed to save significant money from their brief fame.

Wait, what? 24 player multiplayer? Been a while since I've played WCIII, but the most players I have tried was 3 v 3 -- and that was three humans vs three computer players. I'd be interested to see a 24 player game, can't really imagine what that would be like...

Whenever I see discussions on this subject my mind inevitably wanders to The Trigger -- the idea provides an interesting thought experiment. What would the actual impact be?

Haha, stumbled onto this story:

Dogecoin Cryptocurrency

While Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies might not be "this bad", what happened in this case is essentially how I personally think about them. At least for now...

When I was three, I was watching the Roadrunner, and Wile E. Coyote got smacked in the head with something, and stars circled his head. So I picked up my Tonka loader and smashed my 1 year old brother on the head with it. "Where the stars mommy?" I asked. Mom threw out the TV that night, and we didn't get another one until I was 10.
Just tell us now, JD -- where are the bodies buried? Devil

I do not know about those things. I only know what I see and hear.
You haven't seen or heard his total disregard for the legal process? He honestly believes he is above it.

I find his lying simply fascinating. I have little doubt he actually believes he is telling the truth during many of his lies, despite many of them being demonstrably untrue. This is what makes the lies pathological. He literally can not stop himself. And he thinks no one will realize he is lying, because he thinks it is normal, he thinks everyone else is doing the same thing.

Although he lacks a normal level of empathy for others, I doubt he is an actual sociopath. You did however forgot to mention that he is:

nihilistic --
1) of or believing in nihilism, or the total rejection of established laws and institutions

pathological liar --
1) a person who tells lies frequently, with no rational motive for doing so.

racist --
1) a person who believes in racism, the doctrine that one's own racial group is superior or that a particular racial group is inferior to the others.

Well, like I said -- I built three characters in three different leagues. Based on the trading though, I'd guess it isn't a small minority playing in Standard.

So, are you deleting your items, your currency, and your characters at the end of each league?

I actually do this. I can't even remember the last time I stepped foot in Standard because I don't see the point. This is just how I feel though as I know standard is still pretty popular especially among mirror services and whatnot.
Okay, color me impressed -- it would be interesting to know what portion of the game population does what you do. While I understand there is some additional fun in starting over with new game updates it's all the "little" stuff, like leveling the Masters, which annoys me. But hey, different strokes for different folks. If you are having fun that's all that matters, right? Power to the people!

What? Why would you play standard when you can play a much more interesting league? This isn't a question.
Because you don't have to rebuild your Masters, your Atlas, your currency, your maps, and everything else. I've always thought people gave too much credit to "starting over". Really? So, are you deleting your items, your currency, and your characters at the end of each league?

That said, I have built up characters in three different leagues... *shrug*

I'm interested to see what the Ascendancy revamps will bring. Less enthused with the idea of the collecting and sacrificing of beasts.

Thanks, I had used Cinemascore in the past and lost track of that site.
Never heard of the site before -- half a dozen movies later, I don't think I'll be using the service...

Absolutely. Just because Trump is a nihilistic narcissist and a pathological liar doesn't mean I'd want him to have a bad holiday.

I have to admit some surprise that Bitcoin exchanges can handle amounts like that. It makes me seriously wonder if the reverse can really happen as easily. If someone tries to selling even $100 million of Bitcoin, how long does it take that to show up in a "real" bank account?

This thread is great:

1) DangerDog says "Trump never claimed it was the largest inauguration. The media made the battle!"

2) It's proven Trump made the size comment

3) DangerDog says "Well, it's about when the photo was taken, so Trump was right!"


It shows That DangerDog doesn't bother looking into anything before getting all angry at someone else over it, meaning he blames the media instead of Trump, and it means he'll do anything to defend Trump.

Basically, why are we talking to him when it's been proven here he's ignorant, unwilling to use Google before committing to an opinion, and unwilling to change his poorly informed opinion after someone shows him actual video disputing his memory? This isn't even about opinions, which people here argue often. He's arguing fact in the face of video evidence. If someone can't even agree on widely-proven fact, why engage?
Sadly, DangerDog is not unique. In fact, he represents significant portion of the population. It is the very definition of how/why Trump was elected.

You make a good point Flatline. Live by the sword, die by the sword. A scorched ground campaign which, not surprisingly, will leave nothing but scorched ground and online ordering...

Yeah, I looked at doing it just before all the builders stopped building systems with Win7. I should have done it then, but never pulled the trigger. Now with the combination of my hatred of Win10 and the issues you mention I'm just making do with what I have and will wait until I "have to".
