There are two sides to every story and the truth is somewhere in the middle.

Actually, the truth often isn't in the middle. Often one side is correct and the other is totally wrong. Science has completely and totally put the MMR-ASD "link" to bed: there is none. However, there's still fame and money to be made by hawking these truths. Also, sometimes genetic mutation can be mean, and people want answers beyond "random genetic mutation" and "luck of the draw."

This also goes for anthropogenic global warming. The since is as close to certain as science can be: 99%. However, the other side has billions riding on it not being true so they can sell more fossil fuels. Thus, millions of dollars are spent obfuscating the issue.

Maybe the lack of a Saturday update implies Blue may have celebrated Cinco a tad too hard?

Nah. Saturday updates are often later. He's probably doing moving stuff.

It isn't stealing because technically AMD and Nvidia didn't lose anything. Plus, those Chinese companies were probably planning to buy them, but wanted to test them out, first. They'll probably still buy it when AMD and Nvidia drop the price low enough, I mean, if Steam does a sale on those manufacturing secrets for, say, $5, the Chinese companies would be all over it, and therefore it's 100% ok.


LOL. You had me going there for half a second.

I've always gotten the sense Canada's much touted diversity is achieved by a more liberal reporting and interpreting strategy than the US uses. This would seem to indicate Canada's diversity is much lower than the US.'s.

ive never thought Canada was "diverse" and I hadnt really heard much about that either

its white people, french-ish white people... and a handful of natives

always seemed pretty obvious

ive always heard its more liberal than the US, which also seems pretty obvious

It's the same for most of the European democracies. Less diverse, more liberal. Although, we've seen a wave of nationalism strike across Europe over the past year.

Another interesting fact: it's easier to achieve the American Dream in Canada and Europe than in America:

The study, authored by Raj Chetty, professor of economics at Stanford University, defined the concept as the ability for children born in the bottom fifth of income distribution to reach the top fifth. In the U.S. the likelihood of that is 7.5%, whereas in Canada children born in that group are twice as likely to rise to the top at 13.5%. In the U.K. the likelihood of achieving that move from the bottom fifth to the top fifth is 9% and in Denmark it is 11.7%.

That's the weird thing about Canada. For all it's touting about how what a precious little multicultural country it is there's no real latin element to speak of. It's virtually impossible to find a latin type resto. About the only thing you see here are burrito places and even they aren't anywhere close to authentic. I know of 2 places in the country that are legit Mexican and actually sell tamales. I love tamales. It's a crime we can't get them more readily here. I'd love to see more real taqueria's here, etc.

Of course there are no Latinos in Canada. They're not stupid enough to live someplace so damn cold.

I bet that dumbass would have thought it'd have been even funnier if people had gotten into an accident over it.

In any case, yep, removing federal road signs is a felony. And sure, they can donate to your legal fund, but your ass is still going to jail, because there is video evidence of you frigging committing the crime. Moron.

"BUT I DID IT FOR THE YOUTUBES!" is not a $)*#$# legal defense.

Well a good legal defense might be able to keep him out of prison, but hopefully not. I don't have much sympathy for someone whoring themselves out for attention, doing something that anyone with two functioning brain cells should know is both illegal and dangerous, and then whines about getting caught and having to have face the consequences. I hope this, and I normally hate this term, special snowflake gets to have a special experience in prison.

My thoughts exactly. What's the non-lethal equivalent to a Darwin award? Cuz this guy earned it.

That's a good article, and I like the "good prank" it links to. Though, if I was at something and Mark Hamill surprised me, even were it a Star Wars event I wouldn't yell "Oh my god, it's Luke Skywalker!" but "Holy Shit, the Joker!"

He'll always be The Joker first to me.

Really? Because you know what all voice actors look like? You'd do the same for Nolan North or Jen Hale?

If I saw Mark Hamill though, I'd be all like "OMG! It's captain Christopher 'Maverick' Blair!!"

The problem isn't even so much the video, it's that he already conditioned the children to think these kind of pranks are OK, when to us outside, they bordering on child abuse. And what he does to the youngest is imo clearly a crime. Violation of privacy, violation of physical and mental security... that shit was disgusting as hell.

Ps.: That rater story isn't much better, another human scumbag (not the rater who spoke, the one who got him fired)

Is Blues putting these links up to engage us emotionally or something?

The USA is actually somewhat of an anomaly for having very little political engagement. Almost every other country is more active than we are in that regard. However, with the election of Trump, Americans are finally getting engaged.

Welcome to the corporatocracy.

As opposed to what? Venezuela? FFS go get a wedgie at your next rally.

You're kidding right? There's definitely a middle ground between a fucking socialist dictatorship like Venezuela and the corporate monopolies/duopolies that currently dominate most industries in the USA. You HAVE read the studies that show over the past 30 years that of legislation passed there's a 98% correlation to what corporations want and only a 50% correlation to what people want (basically random chance).
