Blue, it is a good thing you love that woman -- otherwise you'd probably have to kill her.

Noticed this story on Net Neutrality in the NYT. It will be interesting to see if the GOP run FCC decides to "do something" about it. I mean they shouldn't have a problem since they are the "state rights" party, but I'm guessing they'll conveniently forget that in this case...

Never used this program for the simple reason it didn't exist the only time I was playing with people I knew IRL. Seems like a major cut to the experience bonus, but maybe it is still worth it? *shrug*

ARE THESE THE FUCKING LIZARD PEOPLE DRIVING THESE THINGS?
They see it day after day, they are used to it. Be sure, if you had the job, after a couple of months you'd have the same subdued reactions.

Mass transit is clearly socialism and therefore bad.

NMS left such a bitter taste. Maybe I should reinstall and check it out again. Though I will say building-resource gathering games like Ark and Minecraft aren't my thing. I like games with stories, and find myself quickly bored once the story ends.
Yeah, NMS is in a weird niche. It does have a significant resource collecting segment, but it isn't really a building game like Minecraft or Factorio. There is building, but it isn't even required outside repairing your ship. Like Minecraft, the play is reasonably open -- do what you like. If you just want to fly from planet to planet and ignore the quest lines, you can do that. Want to build a fancy home base and not really go much of anywhere? You can do that.

Yeah, NMS is a great game to just chill out to. I'm about 100 hours in. While I still love discovering new planets, I'm not looking forward to grinding out $100M to buy a freighter in order to have multiple ships. They should have allowed you to store multiple ships at your base.
Yeah, I have a few disagreements with some of their design decisions but none of them are serious enough to negatively effect the game play, IMHO.

The last 10 hours or so I've been collecting/building materials in preparation of building a new home base on a new planet, which will just be my second time doing so. It will specifically be designed for farming so I can get the money to buy a freighter. Going to build on a toxic planet so I can plant my Fungal Mould outside, I'll be making and selling Liquid Explosives.

I watched Inside Job recently, a 2010 documentary on the 2007/2008 Wall Street mortgage meltdown. I already knew most of the story but it was still a bit shocking to see how basically every single person involved in making decisions which either led to the crisis or made decisions about how to handle it afterward (both in the government and business people), all of them had major conflicts of interest and made millions. Even people like Greenspan and Paulson -- both of whom to my recollection, received little to no blame in the general press.

It left me feeling like the US Government is only a little less "dirty" than the Russian Government. Which of course, is an overstatement of reality but it left me feeling that way...

Oh and it totally backed up / reinforced my belief that "Economics" is legitimate as a science about as much as voodoo is...

Enjoying WOW Legion. Much better expansion that I thought it would be. Really like the Artifact weapon system. It reminds me of GW2 masteries.
Yeah, I picked up WoW again after a long break just before Legion came out. I really enjoyed it, but I just stopped playing 3-4 weeks ago. I suspect this will be a permanent end of my WoW playing.

I finally fired up NMS a couple of weeks ago. I bought it on sale on Steam for $25. I'm about 80 hours in and really enjoying it so far.

Wow, that beats me -- I graduated HS at 6'2", 150 lbs. And I ate like a total pig the entire time. Eating seconds and thirds at dinner on a regular basis, multiple snacks each day outside meal times too. If only that glorious situation had sustained itself..

I've had some bad hangovers over the years, but I've managed to avoid the total blowout you (and many others) have described. Which I would say is both a good and bad thing...

One of my two sisters has Raynaud's. She has slight build and is a bit of a health nut. When she ventures from her adopted home city of Phoenix and comes back north for the end of year holidays it is not uncommon for her hands to turn blue. She also (in part because of?) has low blood pressure. Poor girl, of the three siblings she clearly takes better care of herself by a wide margin but still has more medical problems than the other two by far....

I remember being pretty young (7? 8?) and thinking: if the Christians have a god, and the Greeks had gods, and the Hindus have gods, and the Egyptians had gods, and the Vikings had gods, who's right? It was about then I pretty much lost interest in religion.
Yep. That's essentially the age and thought process I experienced.
That being said, KX is a super-positive, kind person, and I imagine that part of that is being a JW.
He might be a positive and kind person. This says nothing about religion.
Human beings, they're complicated.
Indeed.

Unfortunately, our history is rife with people who have done all kinds of evil things in that name of religion to the point where people see all religions as evil.
I'll agree with this. Unfortunately, as long as people are willing to do that, religions are pointless. When people stop doing evil things religions will be seen as the unnecessary delusions they are by everyone, instead of just the rational.

I believe he said it was unclear. But that the shower in the bathroom had not been used prior to the renovations. So, it was possibly an existing problem which only showed itself when the shower got used...

What astounds me is how control of the US Federal government has essentially been centered around race politics since the Civil War. I'm wondering how many centuries will have to pass before that's no longer true?
