Yeah, hold it in a muslim country and see how that works out for you. This liberal stupidity over this issue never ceases to amaze me. Yeah, fuck security, let's just open the borders entirely and let anyone do whatever they want. I'm sure that'll work out well.

The people who put in 80 hours a week to rise up to the level to qualify for a DOTA tournament aren't going to be terrorists. They won't even be political. But if bans/restrictions prevents them from competing, that is an issue for the tournament. Is Valve going to move the tourney to a muslim country? Of course not, but perhaps to another country that has more reasonable travel restrictions that the US currently does. Canada, perhaps?

Isn't it possible that it really still will be Skynet? How can we ever say if "True AI" were to exist. It should come to a conclusion probably sooner than later, putting us out of our misery with Machines 2.0 is for the greater good.

Maybe eventually, but it's a lot easier to write targeted AIs the replace things like tax accountants, taxi drivers, statisticians, and the like than it is to write a fully-formed self-conscious AI.

I think jobs that require the combination of physical action with intelligence are going to be the ones more slowly replaced by AI robots, because robots are hard. Think: plumber, nurse, orthodontist, veterinarian, electrician, etc.

Be careful dude, and take it easy. The topic has come up here before, but this seems like a great reminder about snow shoveling and heart attacks.

If you're at risk from getting a heart attack shoveling snow, then you are at risk from any kind of labour or exercise.

Im gonna go ahead and safely say that shoveling snow is probably good for you, unless you are a seriously obese fat fuck, or have other major health issues.

Shoveling snow is particularly risky:
1. It is often done by people that do little other working out.
2. The exercise increases heart rate and blood pressure.
3. The cold forces the closure of external capillaries further increasing your blood pressure.

It's a perfect storm. Pun incidental.

LOL, came here to post the same.

It would suck if Blue had a heart attack. Where would we go?

Maybe Blue has left the site to you in his will. You could just literally get out of the van, walk up to the house, ring the doorbell, and have Mrs. Blue let you in every morning.

Hold dota in one of the mexican border towns, so players have to dodge bullets, risk kidnapping, or being dismembered by a drug lord.

Sounds like that fella should be suing some doctors. How in the fucking fuck do you go see a physician who just dismisses something like that out of hand without even investigating it. That's wholly negligent.


In the doctor's defense, the man was obviously also quite fat. Obese even. In addition to the tumor.

Also, is it just me, or did that tumor not remind anyone of this famous Southpark Episode?

Waiting for Darkest Dungeon to be $5, or part of a bundle.

Just not sure if I'll like it enough to justify $12 or $20 for it.

Where I live, when patients are too big to fit in the hospital CT machine, they actually send them to the local zoo, because they have a CT scanner big enough for zoo animals.

"Your turn is next, right after the rhino is finished, sir."

How embarrassing :S

They wouldn't be that big if they switched over to Ornish.

Humans accused of a crime have rights under criminal due process.

"Dogs have no rights. They're property," Favre said.

Gosh, I'm reminded of something far in our country's past. But I just can't quite put my finger on it.

Shouldn't internet service be considered a utility by now? If it was, not sure if that would raise or lower prices overall.

As a utility it would raise prices, destroy competition and innovation. What utilities have competition?

Neither the dems nor repubs refuse to do the right thing. Dems want to destroy competition and hand it over to the ultra paranoid government. Repubs want to destroy competition and hand it over to the rapaciously greedy duopoly mega corporations.


So allow both private and public service. Problem solved.

You elect the GOP and live in a GOP run state and that's what you get. Simple solution, move to a better state.

You may not have noticed that Republicans now control the entire country. Buh-bye net neutrality.
