Democrats Unveil $40 Billion Plan to Expand, Improve Broadband.

Nice try Dems, but as long as you're not punching hippies, blacks, and LGBTQs, those kinds of voters won't vote for you. Ever.

Chris Roberts has a beach front game he'd like to sell you.

This was my first thought, "Sooo, he's auditioning for a job with RSI?"

Trumps the man. Tax reform baby!


What do you want reformed, what do you think will happen, and what evidence do you have that the changes will bring those impacts?

One analysis I read showed households making $900,000 would have their tax burden reduced by $200,000.

Blue! You're about to get $200K baby!

I remember reading a reddit thread where someone off handedly mentioned dumping thousands of dollars into Path of Exile.

I sort of had the impression it must be some Middle eastern oil baron's kid. It seems completely unreasonable to me, but hey, your money.
I have no trouble with whales that want to fund Path of Exile.

He is an incompetent idiot, misogynist, racist, misanthrope and I hate the fact he is my President.

That said, he gets in the way of the GOP nearly as much as he gets in the way of the Ds. He is, in fact, the lesser of the evils. And while it would be somewhat satisfying to see him impeached -- 1) he isn't going to be impeached as long as the GOP has control 2) as I have alluded to, it would only get worse if he is impeached and the GOP still controls both the House and the Senate.

Right, as much as I despise him, Pence would be worse.

Everyone who keeps buying loot boxes is contributing to this BS. And there's a ton of these mouthbreathers, so it's not going to go away.

Do adults actually buy this crap, or is it kids who are far more concerned by what a non-gameplay-affecting avatar looks like?

Kids buy this crap by begging their disconnected parents for $$$.

That being said, I am sure there are some adults, especially those with more money and less time that do buy these.

Sorry jdreyer.
No worries. Brilliant minds and all that.

@Scheherazade

I'll agree with most of that, but at least in America there's somewhat of a counterbalance to the massive power government wields: tension between the three branches, tension between the states and the feds, and a general agreement among all parts to adhere to the rule of law in many cases. This is far preferable to most other governments in the world that have the trappings, but not the substance of this. The US government still has many, many abuses, but it's far preferable than the vast majority of other countries.

Who is more of an idiot? The "model" asking for a tattoo on her eyeball, or the tattoo artist who agrees to do it? Or I am ignorant on the subject and tattooing an eyeball an actual thing that can be done "safely"?

Either way, I'm thinking it's nucking futs. At least with a skin tattoo, if you change your mind there are ways to undo it. That eyeball treatment looks pretty permanent. And who knows the long term effects.

Mother facing jail time for not vaccinating son.

About freaking time.

"I would rather sit behind bars standing up for what I believe in, than giving in to something I strongly don't believe in," she told WXYZ. "God forbid he were to be injured by one of the vaccines, then what. That scares me."

God forbid he get chicken pox and get scarred for life, or mumps and die, you idiot. If it were the mother in danger, and she made the choice as an adult, I'd say more power to you: potential Darwin award winner. But to inflict such beliefs upon her son when the benefit of vaccines has been so empirically proven is gross negligence.

Archive of Howard Stern's Trump interviews offline after DMCA takedown.

Here's one sample.

“So what happens is, this guy falls off right on his face, hits his head, and I thought he died. And you know what I did? I said, ‘Oh my god, that’s disgusting,’ and I turned away,” said Trump. “I couldn’t, you know, he was right in front of me and I turned away. I didn’t want to touch him… he’s bleeding all over the place, I felt terrible. You know, beautiful marble floor, didn’t look like it. It changed color. Became very red. And you have this poor guy, eighty years old, laying on the floor unconscious, and all the rich people are turning away. ‘Oh my god! This is terrible! This is disgusting!’ and you know, they’re turning away. Nobody wants to help the guy. His wife is screaming—she’s sitting right next to him, and she’s screaming.”

[…]

“I was saying, ‘Get that blood cleaned up! It’s disgusting!’ The next day, I forgot to call [the man] to say he’s ok,” said Trump, adding of the blood, “It’s just not my thing.”

The man is a complete sociopath who care more for marble floors than human beings.

The gamification of gaming.

A keen observation.

A while ago we had a similar discussion, and came to the conclusion that eventually you'd pay full price for an essentially empty game: all the necessary components would be available via microtransaction/DLC.

Consumers have spoken Cliff, your game isn't appealing.

Ouch, only an increase of 200? That'll leave a mark.
