I wonder how many 11 year old have threatened to kill me over the years in video games... probably a lot.
Yep. That is exactly what I thought when I read the headline.

The officiating in the NFL is becoming so fucking garbage.
Actually, no. I totally disagree with the call but the NFL is saying the officiating was exactly correct. The issue isn't the officiating, the official did as he was instructed to do, the issue is the rules.

Completely ridiculous, you might as well just give the QBs flags and turn it into flag football. While I think some of the things the NFL has done to reduce injuries, especially concussions, have been good changes -- this is horrid. I guess the critics were right, the end of the NFL has already begun...

The strength of Beamer's argument would (in my mind anyway) seemingly depend on what actual experience Ninja has in competitive e-sports. I mean it would be like finding someone to talk about being in the NFL... you could talk to Steve Young, who is a Hall of Famer and has significant experience. That might be okay, although he's been out of the league since 1999. Or you might talk to Johnny Manziel who was in the league in 2014. You'd get two completely different stories/perspectives.

Looks like it has potential, depending on the reviews and the pricing I might give it a whirl.

All I know is in the early 80s I saw more than a few students fail out of the University of Illinois due to excessive game playing on the university computer system. People with addictive tendencies will become addicted to something...

What Cutter said was a bit flamey, but sharing masturbation secrets and talking about sex is nothing to be ashamed of.
Indeed, just ask Sir Paul...

Georgia might be bad at digital security but they are top notch at Voter Suppression. https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-news/georgia-voter-suppression-scheme-716393/
Something very similar was done in Alabama. Only there it was multiple counties, and the changes got made. I know there was a legal fight to reverse the changes, but I don't know the what the final outcome was.

So, theoretical question: Let's hypothesize someone did hack into the Georgia voting system and rather than subtle cheating, they purposely had all the voting stations report vote totals many more times than could have possibly happened. What would happen? Obviously the election results would be null and void. I'm not sure how much of a good or bad thing this would be, but I have to admit it would be interesting to watch the resulting activity.

Good to see TESS is working as expected. Although I would have liked them to explain the very bright star in the image. A supernova? Here's to hoping the JWST also has a successful launch and start of operations whenever they finally roll it out.

Right? I read the headline and immediately thought, "Uh, there are lots of reason Ajit Pai might visit a telecom executive's home -- using a landline isn't one of them." I'd be more likely to believe Ajit stopped in to get a blowjob.

Yeah, population density in Japan is difficult to wrap your brain around when you look at the numbers. Also, the number of earthquakes they get -- most are not detectable by humans, but it many thousands a year. The number I am recalling from something I watched is around 8,000 -- but I'm not certain I am remember correctly.

At some level you are right, all of them are complicit. Are we drawing an arbitrary line? Sure. Should it be drawn somewhere else? Maybe. But I don't feel I'm being unfair by criticizing Google.

What those googlers have to realize is that the average Chinese cares not a single fuck about privacy, the word doesn't even exist in Chinese. And if you ever been to China you'd know this, and more so, you would realize how laughable sensitive we westerners are to privacy vs how little ANYONE cares there about this.
An interesting angle. I have no idea if you hit the nail on the head or have no idea what you are talking about. But I do know outside of the urban areas it is not uncommon for three generations of family to have lived together in the same home for literally centuries. Which would seemingly fit in with what you are saying. And it makes sense that "privacy" in general is a "new" idea. That said, even if you are right, I'm not sure it means we should give Google a pass for assisting the Chinese government.

What the heck? Dallas is playing a TE who last played football in JHS?

Yeah, bad week in our pick'em league for me. Guessing (hoping) this will be my dropped week seeing as I have 5 correct at this point -- *ugh*.

Because I think net neutrality is a good idea, I hate to admit it, but state based net neutrality is probably on shaky ground. How often are you accessing something over the web which is physically in your state? Obviously it would vary based on the state you live it, but overall the answer is probably "not often". So, having state regulation being subservient to federal regulations in this area is seemingly logical.

We will just have to hope in the long haul we can get some actual legislation in place so we don't have to worry about the rules changing every time the party in control of the White House changes.
