This one man, is the epitome of exactly how the government should not interact with the American Internet market.

Roll back rules, roll back competition. Trust companies to keep your best interests at heart at all times... Whatever Ajit Pai is smoking keep it far away from everything else.

He's smoking fine Cuban pipeweed that he rolls in crisp new $100 bills. Because that's what the telecoms pay him. He's looking forward to that sweet revolving door Verizon SVP slot in a couple years at $5M per year.

That's a lot of actors though. Morgan Freeman, Robert DeNiro, Stallone, etc.

Truth. A large majority of their work is just shit, roles that were written for who they are rather than them branching out and playing different characters. That's where I penalize them and consider them overrated. Someone like Depp, Norton or Weaving, McKellan was mentioned below... or the method actors that get really into playing someone completely different than themselves... they impress me.

I wonder what type of method acting Mark Wahlberg channeled for The Perfect Storm and Deepwater Horizon. Both excellent films acted admirably by a guy that used to go by the handle, Marky Mark and starred in a Michael Bay film.

Marky Mark pretty much just plays himself. If he's well cast, it works. Three Kings was enjoyable. I've enjoyed most of his roles that I've seen. He's kind of like Tom Cruise in that way.

This is just one more reason why me and the wife are considering cancelling our subscription. The first major blow was their CFO saying that they are trying to make 50% of their content original. 9 out of 10 times when I look for something specific, (nothing even brand new or close) they never have it. We like some of their original stuff but, that's not why we originally started using them many years ago and that's not going to keep us as a customer.

All of the content producers are trying to put their stuff on their own channels so they can get that sweet, sweet $10/month vig. So they radically jack the price on NF. For NF to survive as a company they must produce their own stuff, there's no other viable future for them.

Wow, that's so sad to hear Anthony Hopkins obviously has dementia.

Experts say we are "due" for one. When it happens, they tell us, it will probably have a greater impact on humanity than anything else currently happening in the world.

Yeah, except we're not. Those models are based on pre-industrial history. They keep saying the same thing about a world war - which we're more or less in anyway. That article comes off more like an ad for big Pharma, 'Oh we can avert it all with vaccines you know, but we'll require oodles and oodles of money!' As someone who knows someone, first hand, who ended up paralyzed and had their life destroyed by a flu shot I'll take my chances without thanks.


If you stop posting during the next pandemic, I guess we'll know why.

He's made a lotta films, shame none of em are worth watching.

Just because a person works hard at something does not mean he does good work. My lawn boy sweats his ass off mowing and weeding but I still have to point out all the places he missed or how he forgot to edge the sidewalk.

Switch out "lawnboy" with "rentboy" and your analogy becomes much more interesting.

Good afternoon everyone, I woke up this morning to find out we've illegally bombed a Sovereign country again. Almost like a Deja Vu of Iraq WMDs. The media and Congress Critters, Democrats and Republicans, are slowly falling lockstep and goose-step for another illegal war and this time to come to the rescue of Terrorist Mercenaries. Fuck Imperialism. Fuck Trump, Obama, and Bush.

I'll just point out that we haven't actually declared war on another country since 1943.

Hopkins has lost his mind? Confirmed.
I remember watching Armageddon in the theaters and being so upset at how universally awful I thought it was.

That being said, I thought The Island was pretty good.

I don't usually pirate games but this one for sure, Gearshit. You're begging for it. First the incredibly greedy $50 for a simple remaster and now this? You gotta be fucking shitting me mud wresting style, bitches.
Or you could, you know, wait for a sale. $50 is expensive but actual work was put into the remaster.

"Enhanced performance". Pfft. Whatever. I've had it since public beta 4 or 5, and even in it's release state, you still need a $10,000 mega computer to get anywhere near 40 fps.

What settings are you using?

Why on earth would you pay money to livestream Thursday Night Football???? For those twelve Detroit Lions / Jacksonville Jaguars / Cleveland Browns fans who don't have TV?

Maybe the bids were $20 versus $100? lol

To be more serious traditional TV is going to die (unless on demand/streaming is horrifically and deliberately screwed up). "TV" subscribers are only going to become fewer and fewer, once the current teen Youtube generation become adults (or at least of age as consumers) it's likely to take even more drastic hits as it's further sidelined.

Lots of money to be made while getting in early is always better, the number of people without a TV service is always increasing (not just due to population/poverty) so there are many looking for this. I'm speaking hypothetically as people still watch actual sports? lol.


Anyway my biggest takeaway form this is the crap about sports coverage still being so exclusive with no signs of letting up. I'd go so far as to say being able to watch one's national (possibly even local) sports team should be somewhat of a right, at least to the extent that exclusivity shouldn't be allowed to turn it into something so insanely profitable to the point of corruption in many of not virtually all instances.


Hey, it's not like the NFL is non-profit, and the stadiums are built with public funds.

Oh, wait.

I have nearly 400 hours in FTL
No sarcasm, genuinely curious... I probably put 50 hours into the original Rogue on the Tandy 1000. I've played a handful of roguelikes (FTL being one) over the years since and enjoy them for 5-10 hours each but can't imagine putting in over a hundred hours. What about FTL (or roguelikes) makes it fun doing the same things over and over? Is it the challenge to see just how many levels deep you can make it before you reset?

Each run through takes a few hours. Every time you play, you unlock a new ship or a new configuration of an existing ship. This offers a new way to play the game.
- Start with the human ships and blow up enemy ships with lasers
- After a couple of games, gain access to (for example) the Mantis ship and capture ships whole by teleporting onto them and defeating their crews via hand-to-hand combat
- Each of the races offers a unique way to defeat enemies that requires new strategies and management skills. Each run-through reveals new quests to unlock and access these ships and their variants.
- For each run-through you'll have the option to upgrade to some of the weapons and augmentations in the game, but not all. This also dictates your strategy.

I've barely scratched the surface. Each enemy, depending on their layout and configuration, requires you to think and consider your own approach. It's strategic. It's tactical. It's economic. It's management. It's really engaging, and all of the unlocks that reveal new gameplay encourage multiple playthroughs in the dozens.

And I haven't even talked about The Captain's Edition mod.

FTL is basically tactical crack cocaine.
