Gee, if there was only some simple way of fixing all these Destiny 2 issues, such as MAKING IT A GAME INSTEAD OF A GIANT FUCKING CASH SUCKING MACHINE.

New California declares independence from California in statehood bid.

Dumb. It looks like a gerrymandered district. California's power comes not only from its size, but also from it's symbiotic relationship between the urban and the rural. This gives it the ability to effect change at the national level, as many laws that CA makes are subsequently adopted or become defacto law in other states. Break it up, and that power is diminished.

Also, those rural counties depend on the revenue generated by the cities to fund their infrastructure.

Did you play Diablo, D2 or other ARPG and enjoy it? If not, why did you buy GD. If so, please explain what you think is missing...

I played Torchlight 2. It was fun.

What is missing: WASD. I would like the option to move forward or backward and strafe left or right -- while aiming.

I like Grim Dawn a lot, but I wish the gameplay mechanic was more advanced. It's fun but unnecessarily 'bullet hell' vs. requiring tactical and skilled movements and attacks.

Yeah, I love TL2. So much fun.

ARPGs are best played with a friend. You should get Path of Exile, and arrange with a buddy to play. I'd bet there are even some Bluesers that would enjoy playing with you. Best of all, Path of Exile is entirely FREE TO PLAY in the best way: nothing is locked or behind a paywall. It's entirely supported by cosmetic purchases.

You might laugh or scorn this... but... it aint that far fetched as crazy as the left is.

I don't know about the cheating, but your retarded ass posts are probably a violation of the Geneva Convention.

Can't argue with that.

Can we not turn this into another stupid political tug-o-war, please? I'm so sick of seeing 'liberal trash'-this and 'conservative-ass' that, it's everywhere. Yesterday, some discussion on the first UFO sighting of the year (in Mexico, and it looks legit) devolved into back and forth bickering about Trump, Obama and whether America was trash now or before. I'm so very close to not getting online at all anymore because you can't escape it, no matter where you go.

Anyway, this happening in China doesn't surprise me much. When it starts happening here, th byen I'll start worrying. What's the saying? 'When they came for my Chinese comrades, I said nothing. When they came for my Korean friends, I told no one. When they finally shut down PUBG, it was too late to do anything, so I played Overwatch instead'...

Also, Rigs: you were just talking about Trump in the Legal thread.

Kid was afraid of getting an injection so the parents didn't take him to the doctor until he was already hallucinating and convulsing. Can't imagine what it's like to beat yourself up over that...

It's a terrible, terrible story...

Never underestimate the power of doubt. Parents probably doubted it had rabies and that their son was infected. Also, maybe some lack of knowledge of rabies is to blame as well.

I feel bad for those people, they most likely lost their world.
I think rabies has passed out of common knowledge largely. When I was a kid, rabies would come up several times a year and my dad even shot dead a rabid raccoon. But I haven't heard anyone talk about it for years.

Hey, don't get me wrong. I'm all for creators/ sellers of cheats getting arrested and put away to stop the madness.
I just am not sure China will actually crackdown in any serious nature on someone bilking a bunch of videogame nerds in other countries out of Millions ...

I'm thinking in less than a month most of them are out , doing it all over again & again & again ....

China's economy is becoming more and more domestic. They're starting to get their own IP and are enforcing these kinds of laws more. It's in their best interest. They're much less the pariah they were, although they still have tons of corporate espionage going on against foreign companies.

scary world we live in now where you can get arrested for cheating in a video game.

That's just Fucked up. There is no other way to put it.

You can be arrested for cheating at a video game in the US: video poker, or video slots, for example.

Don't worry about me - I'd sign it in a heartbeat.
HEHEHE! Dude, if you were the president I imagine a lot more of us would be happy right now
If Prez were president, everyone would get a free game for voting on election day!

In this age of satellites, hacking, and drones, is there really still a need for a hypersonic spy aircraft? I'm sure given how insanely expensive they'll be that Boeing and the Air Force would argue they are.


Both Boeing and LockMart are proposing drones for the hypersonic spy aircraft. That should help keep the cost down a bit.

If people think it can't get worse than Trump they're dead wrong.
Well, sure: Hitler, Stalin, etc. Surprised you didn't bring up Hitler yourself.

And it's the elites both left and right that only have themselves to blame for it.
"Both sides do it!" False equivalency.

Between the right trying to steal everything not nailed down and the left trying to forcibly shove PC bullshit down everyone else's throats something has to give.
Again, false equivalency. That's like saying a parking ticket is the same as a murder.

We saw the beginning of that sort of reaction with the assholes at G20 summits. Then Occupy. Then Trump. And it will continue. Yes those first two things don't line up with Trump but they're indicative of an unfolding pattern. Of history repeating itself.
You do realize that G20 protests and Occupy were a direct response to, as you put it, "the right trying to steal everything?" And Trump's election had very little to do with those two movements, and much more to do with the election of the first black president, the loss of unskilled labor jobs to automation, the codification of gay rights, economic instability caused by the aftermath of the 2008 crash, 25 years of the right painting Hillary as an awful person, Comey, etc. etc.

Study enough history and you've seen this played out a 1000 times before and you know exactly where it's headed and where it will end.
Hard to say. Modern technology has sort of changed the rules of the game.

While things are certainly better than they were -- the lack of progress is really quite astounding and not understood by many/most of the white population. States are still passing laws and changing voting rules which have been proved in a court of law to be racially motivated against minorities. And then there are the actions of clowns like Joe Arpaio, which are more common than most are willing to admit. The amount of progress we've made in the last 50 years is maybe 25-50% of what needs to be accomplished. It is going to be a long, hard road.

It's really unfortunate the number of people who think racism and discrimination are no longer an issue. You can't work on solving a problem if a good portion of the population won't admit it exists. It's now an acceptable mainstream opinion to be against civil rights and anti-discrimination laws because they "harm freedom of association" and "the problem they fix doesn't exist anymore."

That was the court's argument for gutting the Voting Rights Act. "We're post racial!" said a bunch of white guys. Yet you still read stories of black precincts only have two voting machines to service 50,000 voters while a white suburban precinct will have 100 machines. And voter ID laws coming back. And voter roll purges coming back. Etc. Etc.

I understand what is taught in our history and the concepts of civil rights. I do question the truth of what is taught to us .. if it's a reality or a fantasy. As soon as there is mention of 'rights' be it civil or natural, one should always question them because the arrow of justice can be pointed in different directions using the same exact language with a different intention or meaning. Hence, my question of what is considered violence, is similar to when asking what is a human right. As defined by the victors of a struggle or something more fundamental? That sort of thing. I hope I'm not sounding crazy.

What you're asking is "The idea of peaceable assembly is great in theory, but does it hold up in practice?" The answer is a resounding "YES." The civil rights marchers were peaceably assembling, and the violent local government response was illegally violating their rights. In his case, you needed federal troops to protect them, but that is very rarely the case.

There are protests daily in this country, few of which ever make the news. Almost none are disrupted by violence. The fact that some use violence to disrupt a peaceful protest or assembly does not make the protest violent. The opposition chose to illegally use violence. The protesters were still peaceful.

Take the 2017 Women's March, for example. It's estimated 5 million people participated across the USA, estimated to be the largest single protest in US history. Zero arrests.
