No where in there does it say anything about the person who won the popular, fair and square, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Protip: If you want someone elected by the popular vote, then come to Canada. Where two provinces can elect a PM, and fuck the rest of the country. Or where a single gigantic city can fuck an entire province(Ontario). The EC is the best solution to break the "extreme coasts" from fucking everyone else in the middle.

If you're using your phone at home a Pi Hole is probably the best option.

Didn't know what else to use on the go, so gonna give Brave a try and see how it works this week. Thanks for the heads-up on that.

Pi Hole is excellent, it even runs well on a simple raspberry pi or simple low-end device, and it's trivial to route all your traffic through it first.

Only gamers would argue that calling black people the n-word is not racism. Christ.

Of course it was a concerted campaign. So what?

For the record I don't agree with the article that deleting your Steam account might actually achieve anything. Valve has way too much power for any boycott (by users or developers) to make the slightest bit of difference.
Only someone who thinks that the world revolves around them believe that words maintain the same or even have any negativity around them. So when's the last time you got upset over cracka? How about lighting up a fag?

"So what?" Well obviously it seems to get the little snowflakes so upset that they do something stupid that's basically harming themselves. Where everyone else either shakes their head or laughs at their stupidity.

And still people insist it's not racism.

It's not. You're being trolled, and it looks like hard. Bet you can even find the threads on /b/ that started it still without having to go hit an archive.

If you're getting so upset by words that you delete your steam account, a wrapping yourself in bubble wrap and hiding with puppies is your only solution.

Are you saying a white person does have the same life experience as a black person?

No. They're saying that if you're immediately jumping to the race card to make an argument, you're a piece of shit. On top of that, outside of the US the word doesn't have the stigma of 'whitey using dat word.' Once you go and live in other parts of the world, you'll discover just how insular your life has really been. That is if you survive the culture shock.

And as a heads up because the race specialists are going to come out in the defense of poor minorities, I am a minority and I don't need you to defend me. I can do that plenty well enough on my own.

But if you really want to argue that a white person can have the same life experience as a black person they can. Go ask the ones that managed to escape Zimbabwe for example. Or the ones fleeing south africa which is currently engaged in a racist purge against whites.

edit: Polygon's article is garbage anyway. It's probably one of the best examples of people who have never experienced an adrenaline rush and the brain 'flipping off' during those moments. If you've pvp'd you've experienced it, and the brain 'flipping off' during that is no different then a fist fight or car crash. It was the level that fight or flight kicked in.

This is what happens when you're the sort of person who gets their information from those race realists at the Daily Stormer.

Seriously. This guy literally used an actual neo-Nazi website's "why we're totally not racist" page as his justification, and they used similar "logic" as we see here. Right there below navigation links like "The Jewish Problem", why anti-racism activists are the real racists.

Sorry, having a problem differentiating between the two. Different sides, same coin except that neo-nazi is actually open instead of hiding everything under the bigotry of low expectations. Getting 50pts knocked off admission to a university because of your race is as much bullshit as being give 250pts for your race to get you into it.

Also, SJWs are the real racists, amirite?

At least the "race realist" is going to tell me they're a "race realist." A SJW is too busy telling the black they're too stupid and need special handouts to succeed in society, while talking over them. And telling the asians they're too smart so they need to be penalized. While proclaiming they're really not as bad, but worse then the opposition they claim to oppose.

Same as it doesn't seem to matter how many times I uncheck the 'download automatically' option for Radeon drivers (I'm on legacy hardware) it still keeps ignoring the actual user options and automatically downloading the update.

There's a very strong chance that it isn't the AMD driver doing it, rather it's Windows 10 doing it. Will walk you through disabling it. And that was one of the biggest complaints was MS pushing driver updates out and breaking shit, especially with power users and businesses that had to have particular drivers in use for something.

God almighty, that voice...

...

Is this turn-based or real time?

It's turn based with action points similar to Fallout/2/etc. One of the great tricks with D:OS, and D:OS2 is if you have a high initiative, or you can 'bump' the enemies initiative down you can make more moves before their turn comes up. That does mean though, that AP's still build up if you push them further down the turn line.

99% of it is that they chose to enable 'ON' by default the game dvr app that constantly records video of you gaming ....

What a brilliant choice MS

Likely that's what is happening. And depending on your card(nvidia or amd), there's also an app that does the same thing. So now they're fighting for resources. Plus razer's app does it as well.

I never got far in the first game, once I arrived in the first? city I was stuck running around talking to people to try and get some quests sorted, if you wandered outside the walls you got smashed to pieces without any chance of winning by some mobs 4-5 lvl's higher then you.

Every RPG I've ever played has been like that. Hell even the Witcher is like that. FYI D:OS2 weighs in at 35GB.

You say be careful to avoid them but you've been on them for eight years? Not trying to contradict anything you said, just sounded strange. If you been on a serious pain killer for 8 years I assume you have a serious pain issue, sorry to hear that.

Yep, you're not contradicting anything just speaking from personal experience. Tramadol was considered a "safe" alternative for serious pain compared to oxycodone for example. Of course now that it's been in use and doctors at the recommendation of those studies started using it a lot, it's not. Especially the withdrawal and some other issues. I do have a serious pain issue, chronic migraines. They're almost bad enough to put me on disability. Right up around 15-18/month, not counting the other meds(topiramate for example) I take to reduce the frequency and side effects from the migraines. Thanks though. Luckily I can take the stuff plain without tylenol, one of the most common combinations is tylenol+tramadol(325mg/50mg) mixed. It get's hard on the stomach very quickly.

Fortunately I also had a bunch of clove oil around and that stuff really works amazingly well. I put a few drops om the tooth and it was good for several hours.

Just a heads up, avoid tramadol for pain relief if they offer it. It's considered one of the hardest pain killers to get off of, and the withdrawal symptoms are among the worst. One of the guys at the pain clinic was on it for nearly a decade. Even using the "15% reduction per week" he said it was like constantly having the flu. At one point the withdrawal had him up for 90hrs straight, and he couldn't sleep at all. Had to goto the hospital to be sedated.

I've been on them for about 8years, if you're "at the same dose" all the time you don't notice it, but the second you miss it, it feels like you're coming down with a cold. You just feel shitty and it goes downhill from there. It feels like you're coming down with a cold or flu, nausea waves, headaches, just plain shit. Even people who've only used it for a month find the withdrawal very hard.

The only person mad at Amazon is the dotus and that's because the Washington Post publishes factual articles about that idiot.
Which is why they've had to retract more articles in the last 9 months then the last 8 years right?

Mashiki for 400 bucks I'll drive down to Florida and board it up for ya!
I like paying the neighbors kids, they're just in their 2nd year of high school and it gives them some extra money on the side. You know what it's like at that age.

I hope for Floridians, Irma avoids land fall. However, I have to admit a morbid curiosity as to what would happen if Irma's eye went right through downtown Miami...

Well Andrew('92) only missed it by 35 miles, so that should give you a pretty good guess. Only thing I can say is it'll be interesting to see if my property there survives, if not oh well it's insured and I'm not there anyway. Neighbor's kids boarded it all up for me, and I paid them $400 to do it and I can trust them.

The only upside is that this hurricane is hitting so early in the season. Otherwise you'd also have to be dealing with the large numbers of snowbirds. Zephyrhills for instance would be really bad if this was say 3-4 weeks later, their pop increases by something like 250k people in the winter.

Google and MS in particular need to be regulated. Yeah, like that'll ever happen given the current state of American politics.
Considering that Google and Amazon are managing to piss off people on both sides of the spectrum, it's more likely then not. Probably going to take a few more years, but there's a lot of complaints on just how much pull both companies have with the FCC right now too. MS on the other hand is playing a very low-key and cool game right now to make any waves.

I'm utterly amazed that anyone would have ever used it to begin with. Fuck that was always really annoying with AMD nagging you to install that shit every time you upgrade drivers.
Had some uses, I got more then a few games for free out of it and a bunch of free ships from it for ST:Online. Most people have moved to Razer's thing for their free shit though.
