"There are no simple answers" directly followed by "We just gotta do the right thing." Fucking stunning. Thank you so much for that pearl of wisdom. Especially because most of us here are deadset on doing the wrong thing. :\

What makes your comments so useless is the fact that most people think they are doing the right thing; thinking the right thing. It's actual open discussion that puts those convictions to the test.
I guess you're right. I suppose the people who beat marchers in the 60s thought they were right -- which is difficult to understand, but almost certainly true. I think, perhaps naively, there are more "good people" for lack of a better term than bad. Hence, if everyone did what they thought was right, good would win.

If you don't know what to do to help, contact a local community organization, I'm sure at the very least they can point you in the right direction. It doesn't have to be a "march" or protest, just doing something like being a mentor for a young person can make a difference.

I still think Trump's most revealing comment came in the debate with HRC. "No puppet. No puppet. You're the puppet. No, you're the puppet."

Typical third grader's response, I'm rubber, you're glue, whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you. This really is his emotional level. Plus, the insults which hurt the most are the ones with a ring of truth -- and this line really seemed to get him going.

I'm not pretending to know the answers. It is a complex situation, as most human interactions are. I'm saying everyone needs to do what is "right". Look at the history of race relations in the US. It is pretty clear who was right and who was wrong in the 1960s. If you are not a racist and spend some time thinking about it -- you'll know what is right. Look around your community and assist however you can.

I'd certainly have to agree with that assessment.

Is anyone going to succeed by doing nothing but complaining about inequities. Nope. But that doesn't change the fact there are inequities. Has progress been made? Sure. Is there a lot more to do? You bet.

Yes, there are bad cops. Yes, some people are crooks. There is a lot more grey than there is black and white. All we can do is try to make things better as best we can. The more people helping to make it better, the faster it will happen.

Jesus, 50? And now dead?
Yeah, highly unfortunate -- the big C really blows. Personally, I'll be happy if I make it to 70. There really isn't any known reason I shouldn't, other than being overweight -- but you just never know do you? But the way I see things is, anything over 70 is a bonus for me.

I have unlimited 1 gbit up/down fiber here for $70 a month which I'll get the second I can get the F out of my Comcast contract...I consider that acceptable.
Nice. I'm paying $70 a month (including fees and taxes) to Comcast for 50M. The local fiber project recently changed owners and we are awaiting word on if and when they will expand installations. Currently I am not in an installed neighborhood.

Possibly, I said "saw" but truthfully I don't recall where I got the information -- having heard it on NPR is certainly a possibility.

Copy the memory card somehow? No idea how you would do that, but that would seem to be way to go.

Worst part of Trump isn't Trump, but the fact that he's dropped the bar so low that I'll probably never see another competent President in my lifetime.
It is definitely easy to feel that way. I'm holding out hope, against all odds, that Trump in the long run will be a wake up call for parts of the US population. Unfortunately, it is a long shot at best. I just saw a poll yesterday reporting that among people who voted for Trump, 91% believe he is doing a good job as President. Which is fairly insane because I guarantee you, if the GOP health care bill passes, it will hurt more than 9% of the Trump voters.

Ha! Nice job of preserving those levels. Other than 3.5" floppy disks with lots of old software, which may or may not still be functional -- I have nothing surviving from those days...

Hmm, how about a mandatory device which disrupts cell signals within the car if the engine is running? If such a thing existed, you think it could fly? I'm thinking not, "it means as a passenger I can't use my phone!"...

And of course, there are all kinds of distractions. Even just listening to music can distract someone so, such a device would not solve "distracted driving".

The ZX Games version linked by wtf_man looks better. "Improved" graphics doesn't mean much for this game, it isn't about the graphics.

They pick up the last two years of his contract, let him do the draft, and THEN fire him? Typical Knicks.

Blue that's the good news.....the bad news is Guitar Jimmy still owns the team. Thank god he's been very hands off the Rangers.

Don't remember how I saw Winter's Bone, maybe a Netflix DVD rental? But I would agree it is worth seeing.

Sidenote: Still never even attempted to log onto Facebook. You two billion people are welcome to it.

Only watched the first 20 minutes or so of the video, the story sounds cool though. Seeing 20 minutes of the game reinforces my interest to get back into E:D. But also reminds me it won't be as easy to step back into it as it would be for other games. I'll probably watch more of the video later.

Would have loved to have been in the room when they made the pitch to fund this. Although they probably would have kicked me out before it was over for laughing so hard...

Hell, the two stash tabs are almost worth $15. A premium stash tab over on Path of Exile is $4 and I've bought at least 20 of them. So $7.5 is a bit high, but in the acceptable range.
