News Comments > CS: GO Gambling Scam

It wouldn't be an issue at all if there weren't idiots willing to pay large sums of money for a "rare" gun skin. Those idiots create the market these YouTube losers use to exploit, naive, or simply stupid people. I have mixed feelings on the subject. On the one hand, their fake support of a site that's actually their own site is criminal. On the other hand, I want to say "a fool and his money are soon parted."

I thought I'd posted about this in the past, but I couldn't find it in my history.

I saw YouTube video of someone opening weapon cases and when I realized he had paid money for them my immediate reaction was, "Wow, what a scam." Now, I didn't really think it was a scam, I just thought it was stupid for people to buy these weapon cases for a chance at a weapon skin. Didn't realize there was any "gambling" going on.

Didn't they come out recently and say that hugging your dog did not provide the comfort we associate with it. Since the only time a wolf gets hugged is by a bear...

Well, you solved it -- assuming it isn't a false positive. Sorry, had to be said.

I take the perspective that everyone is trying to kill me.
This is the correct attitude to take, and the reason I've never taken up riding a motorcycle despite how much I think I'd like it.

She seems to come up on him, you can not see her in the initial shot when he is looking straight ahead. At best, it would seem she would be directly beside him at that point.

Often in a two lane to one lane merge like this there is a sign indicating the which lane must yield (usually the right). But I don't see any such sign in the video. Barring a sign to indicate it, I'm not sure what the rules of the road say about which motorist would have the right of way, assuming they are equally advanced down the road. However, my guess would be the right lane should yield. I certainly don't think there is is an established "left, right, left" sequence as the motorcyclist suggests.

In the end, I agree with those saying the motorcyclist should be riding more defensively. Even if the woman is being an asshole, in the worst case scenario, the motorcyclist is going to always lose.

Slightly odd on the grizzly killing the mountain biker. Would have thought two mountain bikers would have made enough noise to make the bear retreat into the woods before they even saw the bear. I guess it's possible they were traveling at a good clip...

Add me to the list of people surprised by the responsiveness of the officer. Not that he wouldn't want to help, but that he understood the biker had it on video and acted immediately. Props to the cop.

Interesting, I thought they had a definition of weight more specific than that. Something like "X cubic centimeters of water at a specific temperature and pressure." Weird.

Apologies in advance, but upon seeing the clip of this I had to post about it. Donald Trump talking from the podium at a rally about free trade:

"I want great deals. I don't care if they're free. I don't care if they're fair. I don't care if they're good. I don't care if they're horrendous. I just want great deals. I'll do it all different ways."

Uh... yeah.

Well, the fact there were pop-ups where the software considered closing the dialog with the "x" as confirmation makes it pretty easy to see how someone might "okay" the update even when they thought they were canceling it. Frankly, in my mind that borders on criminal behavior by MS. It isn't, but I kinda wish it was.

I've never seen one of these update notices. And yes, I do updates through Windows Update. Not that I'm complaining, I've yet to hear a compelling reason to upgrade. And the fact you can still order PCs with Win7 installed, says quite a bit.

I have no intention of upgrading anytime soon. And if I have "pay" to do it when I'm ready, whether it is 6 months or 3 years from now, it won't bother me.

Have you stolen your investors money? Peter Molyneux apparently declined their request for a comment.

There fixed that for you.

Actually I don't know jack about this game or where it's development is at, but given the lack of information and the players involved, I hope no one was really anxious to see this game.
