Good lord, 14? I swear you just got him like, last year. Man, I remember when I was a kid and the relatives I didn't see much made such a fuss every time, and now when I am older I realize that it is because time passes so quickly you have no idea how long it has been until someone pops up and you're like, wait, you are a baby, how the hell are you 6' tall? What do you mean that was 18 years ago? HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?!?!

Oh who gives a shit. People whine and complain just about anything these days, but monetising the shit out of games is par for the course for the capitalistic society we live in. I couldn't care less anymore about shit like that. This year 30 million Americans will probably lose their jobs due to corporate buy offs. Now there is something to complain about. Does anyone care to? Does anyone care to listen? If a game is good, Ill buy it and play it. If its shit I wont.

If people stopped giving these assholes money, they would stop doing this shit.

Just curious, since the entire US workforce is made up of approx. 126 million people in Full Time positions, and 28 million in part time positions (per the Bureau of Labor Statistics for 2017), do you always base your analysis on absurd numbers and factiods you make up, or, are you actually suggesting that with half a year left, around 20% of the country's workers are going to get bounced out of the workforce?

Its standard procedure for liberals being force leftist propaganda 24/7 by 95% of the main stream media sources. not to mention the communist/Marxist/progressive take over of nearly all our learning institutions...

....and these same people are freaking out about "Russian collusion" when they have all already been taken over.
A couple points:

Higher education correlates with a liberal outlook. Education broadens your outlook, making you more susceptible to new ideas, which leads to becoming more liberal. The more we educate the population, the more liberal they become.

The countries that rate the highest happiness ratings, Finland, Denmark, Switzerland, etc, are all liberal social democracies. Socialism, and greater wealth equality, lead to happiness. Full-on Communism/Marxism, no. But socialism, yes.

And then there is Venezuela, Congo, Nicaragua, Bolivia, Greece, Ecuador, el Salvador, etc. Tell me socialism has worked wonders for their countries. Wealth equality doesn't mean squat when everyone is poor.

And I don't buy the higher education/liberal correlation.

Haha, my girlfriend had to sit through that exact rant when this ad played in front of a You Tube video we wanted to watch. FROM ORBIT? My phone doesn't want to connect to the damn thermostat RIGHT DOWN THE HALL sometimes and she unlocked the car FROM ORBIT? And the dude is literally holding his own damn phone RIGHT NEXT TO THE CAR!

Bought this back in 98 https://goo.gl/k8McFr
In anticipation of Unreals release.

Ran so hot had to have the side off the box, but as a precursor to today it was pretty to look at.


I'm pretty sure I was running an AMD processor back then. Too bad the performance nosedived when they merged with ATI. It was nice having just as much gaming power at less than half the cost.

Another famous person I've never heard of, Phillip Roth. Not that I particularly feel bad about it. In fact, I would guess I've never heard of most of the people who have won the Pulitzer. Looking at his wiki page, none of his titles caused the faintest hint of recognition.

Although Blue's blurb makes me wonder if I missed out on something, after all lust is one of my favorite subjects.

One of the best known American literary authors of the 20th century. But given his content, not really taught in schools. He was likely a bigger deal to the parents of most here than to us, as he was a bit before our time.

Personally, Portnoy's Complaint read like a bit like nice guy manifesto to me. A lot of whining about how life sucks, and treating women like garbage, then whining about them sleeping with the happy and successful guy.

This just reminded me of a doofus comment I saw on You Tube a couple of days ago. In the span of two sentences a guy says something about how jews are the bane of the world and how Mike Portnoy is the greatest drummer ever. I laughed pretty hard. So...you're against jews, but think a jewish drummer is the best in the world? That's a weird reality you have there pal. I'm guessing you just don't know Portnoy is a jewish surname and your head would explode if you found out, lol.

Really? I just read again that you MUST subscribe.

ESO Plus gives you another bag that holds all your crafting material. It's the reason I usually pay when I return. The main bag is tiny and since it's like an actual Elder Scrolls game where you can pick up all sorts of shit you don't need, you'll end up running out of space in no time.

After you get a mount, make sure to train it every day. You can increase your carry capacity by 1 each time you train it.

Yes, definitely do this. You get a free mount at level 10. You can also purchase bag upgrades with gold in game.

And a bunch of us who sprung for the Collector's Edition got notifications that our packages were delayed. Whatever At least there is a proces to give us access until our boxes come in.

Never expect anything with tangible products to be delivered by the launch date. Most online stores don't know how to pre-ship these products so that you get them on launch date. The best thing to do is buy Collector's Editions in a store where you have it in hand on launch day. That said, I think you should get the key from the Collector's Editions so that you can at least play while you wait for the hard goods to arrive.

Amazon. Zenimax has a process to get mne a key to login, but their support hasn't sent it to me yet.

I so want to listen to your opinion after you imply I am a horrible person.

No I don't.

What opinion could I give you that you'd give a shit about? Gun owners in this country have proven that they aren't willing to cede a single inch. Any new legislation that would do any good is shut down by NRA lobbying.

This whole "You are being mean to me, so that's why I'm not listening!" shit is so fucking old. It's the other way around, IU'm being mean to you because being nice failed.

You say that it's "rhetoric" that you like having children die. Is it? What do you call it when kids are dying and you just chalk it up as the cost of being able to go shoot paper targets at the range?

That's the bottom line in this argument. There is something that can be done to save lives, and you and your NRA buddies are not willing to do it. That puts the blood on your hands. You are a murderer.

And 3rd grade it is. Clearly I am not a murderer. No child's blood is on my hands. It is ignorant in the extreme to think laws will stop bad things from happening, but simple people look for simple solutions to things that do not have simple solutions. If a law would stop these things, well, we have laws against murder. Does that seem to be helping?

What will help prevent school shootings? Armed guards at schools, limited entrances with checkpoints and searches. The same things that limit shootings at other locations. Unfortunately, you cannot legislate away bad things, so passing laws does nothing.

Also, I love that when things don't fit the narrative, people ignore them. Did you hear about the attempted school shoting last week at which nobody was harmed but the shooter thanks to an alert law enforcement officer? (ie a good guy with a gun) Nope, because it doesn't fit the narrative.

There is no number of dead children that will motivate the NRA nuts to actually reflect on why they love their guns so much. If they don't care about dead children, how can we get them to care about all the other violence in the country made worse by the presence of a gun?

At this point I would fully support repealing the 2nd Amendment. I don't see any other way to enact meaningful change. Sadly, that's not going to happen, because a lot of people apparently enjoy being complicit in murdering children.

Rhetoric like this is part of the issue. Calling names, implying people who own guns are nuts and like having children die. It's all very 3rd grade and unproductive. I so want to listen to your opinion after you imply I am a horrible person.

No I don't.
