While Verizon is being eviscerated on the fire company’s Facebook page, the service provider tells a local reporter that the community is underestimating the scope of what’s being asked. (And there is no reason to believe Verizon has anything against ponies.)

If ever there was a company that hated ponies it would be Apple...with Verizon following a close second. However I have little doubt that the work is probably pretty expensive but I'm sure Verizon is also padding it a lot as well. And why does such a small volunteer force for such a small community need a 500k fire engine and 200k ambulance to begin with? And as they said themselves they funnel a lot of funds to the ponies, so it's a question of priorities too.

If Stainless Steel is Stainless, Why Does it Rust?

I'm always amazed when people are amazed at rusty stainless steel.

And why didn't you just get a glass kettle instead? I have the Hamilton-Beach 1.7 litre kettle myself and it works like a champ. No plastic to worry about. And the blue LEDs look cool.

This is the first answered question about your kettle on Amazon:

The jar is not totally made of glass. I bought the kettle after reading these answers and wondered how the glass jar is attached to the stainless steel heating element. There is some kind of plastic (maybe silicone?) part that holds that glass jar and the heating element together and also acts as a sealant. I opened the lid after emptying the hot water (while the pot was still hot) and got a whiff of a very strong plastic odor. I'm pretty certain that the plastic part is being heated to high temperatures. My pot is going back.

No, the LED ring is sealed in glass - it's all one continual piece. So I have no idea what he's talking about. It could have been something in the heating element underneath it but I've had nary a problem like that. That's why I went with this one as the only bits where the water is is stainless steel and glass.

I got a coffee press over the holidays and have been going non-stop with it. I hate to sound like a hipster but it definitely tastes different than just running the coffee through a k-cup single cradle with my own brew.

Just a french press or an Aeropress? All I've ever used is a french press. Just remember, your optimal brewing time is about 5 minutes. So I always pour my cup that I'm drinking and pour the rest into a thermos style cup to keep hot and from getting anymore bitter.

I'm replaying DAI right now and BiowarEA does tend to lay it on really thick. It's clumsy and awkward and they need to stop doing it. Even the straight relationships are pretty wincingly bad.

The leading US intelligence official said Thursday that his foreign counterparts have expressed concern that President-elect Donald Trump is disparaging the US intelligence community, potentially damaging public confidence.

The only idiots with faith in the US intelligence community are the same rubes who believe The Donald will drain the swamp and make good on the rest of his bullshit promises.

At every stage of the rendering pipeline, AMD has made structural improvements that minimize wasted clock cycles, data fetches, and enable it to make the most out of the available memory bandwidth - of which there is plenty. The Next-Generation Compute Unit (NCU) features some huge changes with Rapid Packed Math, support for simpler 8-bit ops besides 16-bit (half-precision) ops introduced by "Polaris."

These and more make "Vega" a significantly newer assemblage of technology. Over the past few generations preceding "Polaris," AMD has only been making incremental changes to compute unit efficiency and minor updates to the front-end and render back-ends. "Vega" is a shakedown at every level of the GPU, and although the essential component hierarchy hasn't significantly changed, there isn't a single component on the chip that hasn't had a structural change that improves performance or efficiency. Our only hope is in seeing a "Vega" based high-end graphics card out on the shelves as soon as possible. NVIDIA is taking advantage of its performance leadership by pricing its current GeForce 10 series graphics cards significantly higher than their predecessors. It's about time there's some real competition in this segment.

Hells yeah! I'm acually going to go with a lower end card right now to get me through the next 2 years as my entire rig will need to be upgraded at that point, then I'll go in for the whole enchilada of the Ryzen/Vega goodness.

Not sure about PTSD so much as there is no real threat of imminent danger or death, which I believe is one of the major factors to creating PTSD.

One thing I wonder is: how long before someone walks by a window at a house / apt and sees someone pointing this around in their home and then freaks out and calls the cops.

And then because they've got a helmet and earphones on with the sound cranked up they don't hear the SWAT team giving him commands so he gets his head blown off. Hell, you just need to be a black man holding one of those to get shot. Who are we kidding, he wouldn't even need to be holding it. Zing!

The only requirement is a 25 Mbps or faster internet connection and a Mac or Windows PC

That the minimum? So it's probably double that at least. So for a lot of people that would mean paying a lot a more for internet - and that's not even addressing the issue of data caps - and you still have to own the game, and they have to support said game, and it all the stars are aligned just right and there's no traffic on the net or DDOS events going on or what have you than you can play a game at a slightly better graphical level...for $8US a month. Yeah, I'm sure this will go over like gangbusters. Rolleyes

Edit: Oh yeah and with Trumpco killing net neutrality you can bet service providers will now start charging a premium to shuttle that traffic back and forth too. All in all it's a terrible idea.

I can't see it being anything other than a typical BiowarEA game. Maybe they took a page from Witcher 3 on how to do make a good game, but I doubt it.

When does the military not want every kind of conceivable weapon in its inventory? And more on the mark, when does a corporation involved in the MIC not want all those various weapons to sell? Just look at the US military, several hundred billion dollars a year on shit they don't need. Better to have it and not need it mentality.

One can only speculate what WWIII with Russia would have been like under a Clinton regime.

Really? Cause last I checked its the GOP who like to start wars. How else can they continue to let the MIC continue to needlessly rape the American taxpayer? In fact, let's speculate, what's the next big war the GOP has in the pipe? What's the next big false flag 911 that'll allow it to happen and finally strip the American people of the last vestiges of their civil liberties and human rights?

The surprising vote came on the eve of the start of a new session of Congress, where emboldened Republicans are ready to push an ambitious agenda on everything from health care to infrastructure, issues that will be the subject of intense lobbying from corporate interests. The House Republicans’ move would take away both power and independence from an investigative body, and give lawmakers more control over internal inquiries.

Surprising to whom exactly?

“Poor way to begin draining the swamp,” Tom Fitton, president of the conservative group Judicial Watch, said on Twitter. He added, “Swamp wins with help of @SpeakerRyan, @RepGoodlatte.

Lol! There really is one born every minute isn't there?
