Never heard of REI prior to this -- looks like there are 4 in Chicago but none in the rest of the state... *shrug*

The mother of the child who got into the gorilla enclosure can battle it out for Careless Parent of the Year with the Japanese couple who dropped their 7 year old on the side of the road because of his bad behavior. When they returned a few minutes later he was gone. A massive search in progress with no luck so far...

Considering the mind boggling success of "The Sims" and all it's expansions, I don't understand why anyone would be surprised by the success of "Youtubers Life". Remember 50% of the population has below average intelligence...

It will take thousands of years to eliminate religion, at a minimum -- it might not be possible at all. Zoos however, will probably be gone in a couple of generations.

NMS, just like Minecraft, is about creating your OWN game play with the elements provided, rather than the typical game play mechanics of other games that rely mostly on pre-scripted events and a mostly linear story. The beauty of NMS is that it doesn't fit the typical game play "mold", and it shouldn't.
I understand what you are attempting to say. And I spent hundreds, if not thousands, of hours playing Minecraft. And hundreds of more hours watching videos of other people playing it. That said, I don't see as much in NMS as I immediately saw in Minecraft. I hope you are right, but I don't think we've seen enough to know the comparison is accurate -- at least I haven't.

Woof! Tough times. When it rains it pours, eh?

As jdreyer mentioned, you might want to speak with a lawyer. The laws vary from state to state but two weeks notice seems very short. I wouldn't be surprised if your tenant rights were violated.

Good luck on finding another place -- hopefully the next landlord won't be be a dick.

I voted Hillary for President
Seeing as she has yet to run for President, that seems unlikely. I assume you mean you voted for her in a primary.

Five years, never missed or was late on a rent payment. 14 days to get out.
Wow, that's pretty shitty. It's been 11 years since I last rented, but never had a bad experience like that. If it makes you feel better owning isn't all good either. There's always another thing to deal with. Overall I prefer not having people living on the other side of wall from me more than I dislike the down sides, but it isn't paradise.

I use a wireless optical Microsoft mouse which is no longer manufactured. The first one I got lasted about 8 years without any issues. When I went to get another, it had been recently "discontinued". Fortunately I was able to find some. I bought five of them and now four of them are sitting on the shelf waiting to be unpackaged when needed. Pretty sure I'm set for life, unless I live a lot longer than I expect.

EDIT: Wow, that was a wall of text, eh? Ok, TL;DR- a Space Engineers-Lite (more SPACE, less ENGINEER) with lots of potential and dedicated devs. There's some bugs but they're slowly being fixed and usually the community comes in with a workaround shortly after it's discovered.

Have you tried Factorio? From the description you gave, if you like that you'll probably like Factorio. The crafting in Factorio might not be quite as complex as some of the things you described, but it is in the same vein. Great game IMHO.

It will be interesting to see if this game can fulfill it's potential. While I'm intrigued, I plan on waiting for the release and post release reviews. It seems a bit light on content for now. I understand and even agree exploration can be an interesting part of a game, but I'm not sold on it being the sole or major emphasis of a game that could hold my attention for more than a couple of hours. Which wouldn't be worth the current price tag. That kind of experience is more along the line of a $20 game, at best.

And I'll never understand drug testing - much less how they're legal. So someone is a raging alcoholic and that's fine, but smoke a bit of grass and fuck you? I'd venture most employers have way more problems with people and alcohol than any other drug. And ultimately what people do on their own time is their own business. As long as they show up ready to go, who cares? That's the difference between a worker and a slave.
First, they test for alcohol too, bet on it. Second, one is legal, the other isn't -- whether you agree or not, that's the way it is. However, the main thing is a legal/insurance issue. An incident which results in an injury, especially if someone other than the employee is injured, can mean serious exposure to legal action. Doubly so if your employee is drunk or under the influence of an illegal drug.

If you can't show up at work without alcohol or drugs in your system, why should I hire you?

Took me a little longer to realize 8 + 5 = 313 is wrong.
Nope

Not sure if "nope" means "yes this problem is wrong" or "no, you're wrong". So for clarification:

8 + 5 = 13
8 - 5 = 3
concatenate: 13, 3
I assume you are just brain farting. PHJF is exactly right and the layout you provided here doesn't work for any of the examples.

They killed D3 when they decided to kill all trade in the game in the PC version. Fuck that.
Not quite "all" you can still trade items with people you are playing the game with when the items are found... Cheesy

Removal of the AH was a major win.

To me, DOOM was cooler than Quake.
I agree, but I assume that's due mostly because Doom was first.
