Looks like it might be ok. The world itself doesn't look very alien however.

It was really cool last night. Felt like a fall evening. And it was beautiful what with the clear sky and full'ish moon.

Uh no, Mac is right, they need to go fuck themselves. This game just completely fell off the radar for me. Give an inch they take a mile. This is how it starts. Reward them with sales for this bullshit and next time it'll be even worse. Then it will be gated content and micros up the ass for everything. Best thing to do is nip this in the bud by boycotting the game.

Trove Carafe? What does that even mean? So it's a carafe used to hold a trove of something? Treasure presumably?

Okay, first of all they are duly elected members of Congress, not some member of Royality who inherited the power to rule us. Meaning the problem isn't them, it is the people who elected them. Second, I don't want people being shot for their political beliefs because I don't want to be next on someone's list. Third, even if key GOP members (or any GOP members for that matter) were killed for political reasons, it would only increase their popularity with the populace. You think they have majorities now? Kill a few and they'll soon have veto override majorities in Congress and every statehouse in the nation...

Elected? The overwhelming majority of them have come to power with minority votes courtesy of the gerrymandering they're practicing, which incidentally is only getting worse. Pretty soon a Democrat won't be able to get elected regardless of the actual support they get. Since Nixon they've been trying to usurp the democratic process and put an end to it, literally, and you're fine with that? This isn't a simple ideological divide these people are actively working to establish authoritarian rule. And you want peace at any price? Those people love people like you. They'll shake your hand and nod agreement then stab you in the back the moment it's presented to them. And the beliefs and values aren't just bad for America they're bad for the whole fucking planet.

The founding fathers understood people like them. It's why they included the following in the Second Amendment....

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

Not only do you have the natural born right but you have the duty to stand up and despots and tyrants. Anything else is just capitulation. I suppose your heroes are guys like Benedict Arnold, Joe Valachi, the Rosenbergs, et al.

Listen, I am near the front of the line to complain about the GOP and I realize you are not serious -- however, even "joking" like this is not useful or productive. The best case scenario is you are ignored. The worst case is damn ugly.

Why? The GOP has declared war on everyone else and the planet. People have every right to defend themselves by any means necessary. Talking doesn't work with those people. They don't care. By your rationale there never would have been a War of Independence and no America to begin with. Like Thomas Jefferson said, "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. It is it's natural manure." Appeasement only makes the aggressor stronger. Ask Neville Chamberlain how that worked out for him with Hitler.

Seeing the comments for that everywhere they run to the effect of 'Never heard the song or of the artist.' So those are either fake numbers or they're coming from repeats in Latin countries. Sounds like it was a guerilla marketing scheme to drive views on it to begin with because obviously everybody is going to now at least check it out.

I wonder how many internal heads had to roll to push that change in policy through... because I can't believe that was a simple decision. Facebook basically surrenders the PC market with this.

Well it's that or perish entirely. I'm amazed this wasn't the case to begin with.

A couple of years in Club Fed at which he probably won't even serve a year, maybe 18 months at the outside. Then get parole. Then write a tell-all book and make more money. And nothing changes.

Yes, except they'd known each other for years and for years she tried to get him to seek help and he categorically refused and kept insisting he was going to top himself. So she tried in her own way to help end his suffering and she did. Where was everyone else before this if they were so goddamned concerned? This wasn't remotely like those 4 black teens mocking the drowning man. Completely different things. And her lawyer was right, this was a case of protected speech and they got it wrong. They're simply punishing her to make themselves feel better. Obviously they would have done better, right? Oh but again, were where they? Where are they for all the other people out there that need help? Fucking nowhere. Just judging everyone else and pretending they're better. Talk is cheap assholes, whisky costs money.

A competition and a sport are different things. No one is saying it isn't a competition, just not a sport. If your idea of exercise is tapping a keyboard and moving a mouse around you must be the size of a fucking whale. If you're not elevating your pulse, heart rate and sweating from physical exertion it's not a sport. Words matter. It's the difference between helping your Uncle Jack off a horse, and helping your uncle jack off a horse.

The limited indications I've seen tell me Zuckerberg is as much of a dick as Trump. That said, he probably is smarter and more aware of what most people consider "reality". Overall, difficult to say -- he might be great in the role, he might be terrible.

Aware of what most people consider "reality"? This is what you think of the person who suggested that we could solve all the world's problems by posting everything on Facebook and forgetting about face-to-face interaction? Zuckerberg is nothing but a selfish, manipulating tool who apparently has nothing better to do with his money, so he'll run for some sort of political office. He's a terrible leader who doesn't consider the repercussions of any of the technology he's investing in and he would destroy all online anonymity. Definitely not someone who should ever be in any kind of government position.

Well said. The kid is a psychopath of the first order. At least with clowns like Trump their motivations are transparent and you know what you're getting. Someone like Zuckerberg would be just as bad as Hillary.

President Donald Trump got elected with a promise to put “America first” — American corporations, American workers, American interests.

And none of his supporters has ever found it the least bit odd that this man has made a career out of hiring 'damn foreigners' instead of Americans? Hell, at Mar-a-Lago the sonofabitch actually flies them in to work there. Zero shortage of Americans who live within spitting distance of the place and he won't hire them. Gee whiz, Wally, doesn't sound to me like someone who puts American workers first.

He's a clinical sociopath. It's not dementia, he just doesn't give a fuck what goes on outside the universe of The Donald.
