Blame capitalism. It was bought out by Cerberus Capital, who took control using a leveraged buy out that gave Remington a debt of $1B for the privilege of being purchased. Cerberus then paid itself millions in management fees per year.
Ah, thanks for the information. It is simultaneously unsurprising and disappointing those kind of transactions still happen on a regular basis.

It's how Mitt Romney made his millions, although I've heard stories worse than what he did.

A typical flu season will kill more than 50,000 people, thousands of those preventable via flu shot. What you're saying is "Seatbelts are a scam because I know a guy in an accident that didn't wear his seatbelt who was thrown clear of his vehicle just as it exploded!" while ignoring the tens of thousands of people saved by seatbelts each year.

Also what RedEye said.
What about that one time where the car went into the lake and the seatbelt jammed. There's no shortage of these stories out there. [snicker]

Right? Even when there are rescue robots helping out.

Is this the patch that makes Fallout *fun*?

I'm glad I bought it on sale and just got the core game because FFS this is a boring-ass game. I get that Fallout games get going kind of slow but sheesh this game is a chore.

I've started the game 3 times now. Third time I actually spent a little time building a settlement and that was a little cool. I did some more side missions and that was okay.

But every time I get to Diamond City my eyes glaze over and I lose interest. I'd rather play Destiny 2- at least the combat there is slick and fun moment-to-moment.
No, its not Fallout, its Bethesda games like that. Same with any Elder Scrolls game so far. I could never complete Skyrim for example, because the gameplay became so boringly easy and repetitive at one point and character development stopped already at about 1/3 to 1/2 through the game. Or its the sterile worlds Bethesda almost always creates. I couldnt play Fallout 3, Oblivion or Morrowind because of that.
And its obviously not only me, because I have quite a few friends who also never completed Fallout 4 or Skyrim.

I didn't buy fallout 4 because of these points. I couldn't finish the last 4 games of theirs so yeah.. why bother

I didn't finish Skyrim either, but I had a good time playing for 100 hours or so. Worth the money, IMO.

Excellent film. He also apparently did the music for Sicario which was also very good. No cause of death released... hopefully it wasn't something "stupid".

Damn, I've been listening to his soundtracks lately, esp Theory of Everything. What a bummer. RIP.

We lost James Horner a couple of years ago. Who knew that soundtrack composer was such a high risk profession.

Fake clickbait bullshit. Might have had some value if unicorn girl was cute, but she wasn't.

The dangers of the flu shot far outweigh the benefits. I got the flu this year for the first time in...30 years? And that was solely because of what I said before. I'm watching all these assholes walking around and not covering their mouths when they cough or sneeze. Being paralyzed and spending several years learning to talk, walk, etc. all over again is NOT worth it. It's just another Pharma scam for free tax dollars.

B.C. man paralyzed after flu shot warns of risks

There's no shortage of these stories out there. And the worst part is they don't even make people aware of the risks of these shots.

A typical flu season will kill more than 50,000 people, thousands of those preventable via flu shot. What you're saying is "Seatbelts are a scam because I know a guy in an accident that didn't wear his seatbelt who was thrown clear of his vehicle just as it exploded!" while ignoring the tens of thousands of people saved by seatbelts each year.

This sentence,
In particular, officials are seeing unusually high levels of hospitalizations in non-elderly adults, with the rates for 50-to-64-year-olds significantly higher than what they were at the same period in the severe 2014-2015 season with the same predominant flu strain.
seems slightly worrying to me as I'm in that age range and haven't had a flu shot since I left the USAF a couple of decades ago. I've only ever had the flu once (more than a decade ago), so I'm pretty sure my immune system is reasonably resistant, but that resistance is sure to weaken over time...



The flu strain changes year over year, so it's always a good idea to get one. Immunity to one strain does not confer immunity to another. That said, the flu shot is only about 30% effective. Still, better than 0%.

I'm still amazed that anyone who considers themselves to be a writer at -any- level would call paper a natural material. That's one fucked up vocabulary, someone should introduce him to a dictionary.

it reminds me of mommy bloggers advising their herds to switch to maple syrup instead of sugar, because it's "natural". it just belies a kind of simple minded, uninformed train of thought.

Well, maple syrup has trace minerals and antioxidants that table sugar is missing. And it has a lower glycemic index. But yeah, it's still sucrose with all the down sides associated to it. It's like saying red wine is better than vodka since it has resveratol. It's still alcohol, and you should avoid both.
