Path of Exile 3.0 -- The Fall of Oriath launches in about three hours. Anyone care to predict how it will go?

Aware of what most people consider "reality"? This is what you think of the person who suggested that we could solve all the world's problems by posting everything on Facebook and forgetting about face-to-face interaction? Zuckerberg is nothing but a selfish, manipulating tool who apparently has nothing better to do with his money, so he'll run for some sort of political office. He's a terrible leader who doesn't consider the repercussions of any of the technology he's investing in and he would destroy all online anonymity. Definitely not someone who should ever be in any kind of government position.
I put reality in quotes in an attempt to indicate how few people seem to acknowledge it. And while Zuckerberg might be a tool(I already said he was a dick), I'm guessing he is above the midpoint on that scale.

"the technology he's investing in and he would destroy all online anonymity" -- Okay, I'll bite what are you talking about?

And as far as "not someone who should ever be in any kind of government position".. have you seen who is in the cabinet? There is nowhere to go but up from here...

The limited indications I've seen tell me Zuckerberg is as much of a dick as Trump. That said, he probably is smarter and more aware of what most people consider "reality". Overall, difficult to say -- he might be great in the role, he might be terrible.

Again, my question would be does that mean the mechanics for soaking up corruption and properly grouping for special attacks are not active? Seems to me those mechanics are such they lead to wipes. Granted this is all from me watching videos trying to teach the fight.
The mechanics are there, but they're so insignificant now that you can mostly ignore them. Honestly, you'll kill him in one go unless you have the worst LFR group ever.
Finally got off my lazy butt and did this -- you were correct, killing Xavius in a LFR group was ridiculously easy. Unfortunately, a quest in the chain toward flying after it is still considerably broke even though Blizzard has known about the problem for a long time -- as documented at Wowhead.

$20 billion is about 1/4 of their market capitalization -- I'm not familiar enough with corporate practices to know if that is significant or not. However, it seems like a lot to me...

Trump has actually produced a lot of stuff in his time. Those hotels didn't build themselves.
Well, you are right in that they didn't build themselves. But in many cases neither did Trump. He simply sold his name to the building. Even in the cases where his companies were actually involved in the construction, I'd be shocked if Trump himself acted as anything other than a back seat interior decorator.

Neither has he produced steaks, wine, suits, or any of the dozens of other products carrying the Trump brand. Trump sells branding and marketing, except on rare occasions, he produces nothing.

Yeah, right. Move to a country without significant law enforcement infrastructure and I suspect you'd change your mind quickly.

Ignorance is a huge problem. It was a show alright. If you can believe the GOP is devious and clever enough you could argue they all were performing for the cameras. Now the entire GOP, with the exception of three senators, can run on "We did everything we could to repeal Obamacare but we just didn't have the votes in the Senate." You could suspect the GOP Senators knew the whole time McCain, Collins and Murkowski would vote no, allowing the rest of them to vote yes without consequence. Just like so many of them did when they knew a repeal would be vetoed by President Obama.

You might think, "How can they run on the fact they were trying to repeal the ACA with all the protests even in red states?" Because their base believes them. When they say the skinny repeal would have fixed everything, the base will believe it. Despite the fact it is demonstratively false. I really fear the talking heads are wrong, despite all appearances of this being a major defeat for the GOP, they will successfully convert it into at least a minor victory at the polls and in the voting booths.

Tells you all you need to know really. This bill is about defunding the ACA and Medicaid and giving those savings to the very rich.
Indeed. I was just catching up on news (had a busy day) and was shocked/amazed/angered/so many emotions I won't bother to take the time to list... that this "skinny repeal", an 8 page bill, was written over lunch the same day the GOP forced a vote on it.

Really? You want to effectively rewrite the rules around 1/6 of the economy over lunch? WTF? I wouldn't want ANYONE doing that -- Rs, Ds or anything in-between or outside those lines.

Absolutely insane.

Well, I must say, if Obama wasn't in such a hurry to make his mark with Obama Care (ACA), and they (Obama & Democrats) would have taken the time necessary to put a more intelligent and comprehensive plan together before shoving it down the American people's throats, maybe it wouldn't be as fucked up as it is. And now, with the Democrats and Republicans not being able to agree on anything to make the much needed improvements isn't making it any better. So, no, fuck emí both (Democrats and Republicans).
I'll agree it is unfortunate the ACA was passed without a single GOP vote. However, if you compare the D's process on the ACA to the GOP's process on their "replacement", the D's win hands down. They worked on the ACA for 18 months, held many hearings, and allowed scores of GOP amendments. The GOP rushed their bill through in a couple of months, held no hearings, allowed no amendments, and even withheld the actual bill (even from GOP members) to the absolute minimum required by law. There is plenty of blame to go around on both sides, but I honestly believe any sane and reasonable person would agree the D's were far more accommodating and transparent than the GOP has been.

Any major legislation requires adjustments. If the GOP hasn't hell bent on opposing anything Obama did, this could have been fixed years ago. The ACA isn't perfect. But it is significantly better than anything the GOP has proposed and could be much closer to perfect if the GOP was more interested in fixing it than scoring political points with their base. I know, nearly an impossible ask for either side of the aisle, but it what it is.
