Cell phones are relatively new. More studies are underway.

If RF is killing us and we just haven't shown the symptoms yet, we're fucked.

Wow, the anti-cop sentiment from you people is astounding. It kinda makes me hope your car gets stolen or you get assaulted. Lets see if you have the same attitude with the cops then.

This is the same tired shit every cop apologist who has never had to deal with the cops starts with.

Yeah, if my car gets stolen they'll find it weeks later in 50 pieces. If they find it at all. So useful. And if I get assaulted and call the cops, other person will claim I started it and we'll both get arrested until we both agree not to press charges to clear the whole mess up. And that's assuming it isn't just some random shithead who they'll never find in the first place.

And nevermind the fact that they are useless for protecting you in the first place. If you have an emergency situation the most they are gonna do is show up 15 minutes after you're dead, take notes, and make sure your body gets carted away in a timely manner. I'm sure I'll be grateful from my resting place in hell.

I've never been convicted of any crimes, or involved in any criminal shenanigans, and still every interaction I've had with cops has been a pain in the ass. Sitting there being polite as possible to some ego flexing asshole just so he won't charge me with contempt of cop or resisting verbal abuse. And not once have the cops ever done anything to actually help me.

My first interaction with the cops (that I can remember) was getting swatted as a teenager. We didn't call it swatting then, and my town didn't have a SWAT team, This was pre-widespread-militarization. But a bunch of cops surrounded my house and harassed me and my parents and tore our house apart looking for weapons, all because of some idiot making a phone call. I wasn't even the target, moron gave them the wrong address for whoever he was trying to fuck with.

EDIT: To be clear, it's probably easier to say what I think cops are good for, rather than all the stuff they are bad at. I think the main point of having a police force is as a deterrent, and to keep people generally hesistant to form mobs to seek their own justice. Even if they are incompetent and do a bad job of that, the illusion of justice is still worth something as a security blanket for people.

Also federal law enforcement does a fairly good job with white collar criminals, though the courts fall on their face, usually.

Unless I'm behind on this research, there hasn't been any credible link discovered between cell phone usage and illness. In addition, despite cell phone usage increasingly dramatically, there has been no corresponding increase in brain cancer diagnoses.

For all your dismissiveness about people "carrying on like a spoiled child" it's pretty much the tactic that Trump has proven works.

The funny thing is that when Obama got voted POTUS we (in Australia) didn't hear anything like we are hearing now from the losing side.

You probably didn't hear it because right wingers mostly keep to Fox News and Breitbart and other shitholes you're probably not interested in visiting.

Obama was a secret Kenyan Muslim Atheist, according to these people. He was going to take all our guns away, or put us all in FEMA concentration camps. And for "mainstream" news where they couldn't bring themselves to report on fabricated conspiracy theories, they had to really really dig for "legit" scandals. Remember when Fox News spilled their spaghetti about him wearing a tan suit to some briefing, or ordering dijon mustard, or saluting with a coffee in his hand one time? Or giving someone a fist bump and spending a whole week arguing about whether it was a "terrorist jab" or some such?

Right wing media spent the entire 8 years of Obama's presidency losing their collective fucking marbles and building up steam which helped them win in 2016. They did 8 investigations into Hillary Clinton for her actions as Secretary of State, none of which turned up anything. Not to mention the "BUT HER EMAILS" hysteria.

It doesn't matter what side of politics you are from if you lose and carry on like a spoiled child about it then I WILL laugh my arse off at your pathetically useless antics.

How do you think people get motivated to get out and vote? They bitch, moan, and get pissed about shit. And even despite all that, we're lucky if a third of eligible voters actually go and vote. Nothing is gained by sitting there silent for 2 or 4 years waiting for the next election. Do that, and you're guaranteed to lose every time.

Trumpers were the most obnoxious pieces of shit on the Internet during his campaign, crying about everything, painting Hillary as the next Hitler. And guess what? It got their guy elected!

For all your dismissiveness about people "carrying on like a spoiled child" it's pretty much the tactic that Trump has proven works.

Also if you want to trade videos, I can post the one of a Trump supporter slamming his car into a crowd of protesters, killing one of them.

I, personally, don't give a rats arse who is the POTUS.
The laughs come from the cry-baby, sooky lala, sour grapes losers.
Adjust your own "tantrum throwing" attitudes because you didn't get your way and the LOLZ disappear.

The problem here, judging from your responses, is that you view it all as a big football game, just something where you root for some team and it doesn't really matter. But these things have real consequences. Policies are made that will make life either better, or worse for people.

It's not the equivalent of people "crying because their team lost." Because some team losing a football game doesn't cut off healthcare, or raise insurance premiums to unpayable levels, or send my friends off to die in some pointless war.

Maybe, just maybe, the reason you feel the way you do is because you're sitting there with your universal healthcare, low gun violence rate, and other "commie" amenities that people like Trump don't want us to have. If "Fuck you got mine" is all you have to offer, then you really shouldn't be posting.

AWWWW! Poor babies.

Quick! Run off to your "Safe Space".

I said to my wife when I found out that Trump was running for POTUS:
"I don't think he has a chance of winning but, if he does it will be hilarious."
He did and it was and continues to be.
You sorry arseholes don't even have the brains to realize that you are helping him to win in 2020.

Can't wait for 2020. If Trump wins again the lolz will be EPIC.

Some of us actually have to live in the US and can't just "lulz" from our make-nothing do-nothing prison colony. For those of us who do, having some reality TV star with dementia as our President is not a laughing matter.

Now it's Russia hacked our election? lol

Before you go all global thermal nuclear war because crooked corrupt Hillary lost, I need to add some creature comforts to my Vault 101 fallout shelter.

Yes, because Donald Trump is neither crooked nor corrupt, he is a great honorable man! Jesus christ it's as if all you Trump retards are 12 years old and don't remember all the shady shit he has been getting up to for the last 40 years.

I ask you ten years ago about whether you'd support Donald Trump for President, and you'd say "Fuck off Donald Trump is a joke." or something to that effect.

Man what a time we live in when the Republicans are the ones in favor of bending over for Russia and want to be the naive little turds who think Russia is our friend and doesn't want anything but the best for us.

Why not put the offices in places that small indie devs can actually afford to live? But that would make sense.

Probably because they are a publisher and will not be hiring developers to work in their own offices?

Whoever made that original engine contract must have been a fucking idiot if they did actually sign a "we don't change engine" clause.

You are talking about Ortwin and Chris "I married a tickle porn actress" Roberts.

He has not made a computer (or any that I know of) game in 20 years.

Wing Commander The Movie was a totally flop - he directed it.

He was black listed in Hollywood due to lawsuits.

Anyone who has given him money in the last 15 years as regreated it.

He lies all the time.

He deserves what is coming.

Dammit, can we have one thread where we aren't devolving into a political argument about the President? Every damn ti- oh, wait. Huh...

=-Rigs-=

HAHAHAHA! By god you're right! Chris Roberts is basically Trump!

Sorry Crytek but your gonna have to stand in line like the rest of the folks who crowdfunded this spruce goose.

Hey man I saw the Spruce Goose in a museum and that thing was worth every penny. As a museum piece, anyway. There's something so impressive about that wingspan, especially seeing it in a hangar. They had it in the middle of the building, and there were a bunch of smaller planes displayed with the Goose's massive wings looming overhead.

Somehow I think Star Citizen would be shit even in a museum.

But yeah this lawsuit is going to be fun fun fun. I wonder how Christ Roberts will fuck this up? Maybe they'll get him on tape admitting to grabbing the crowdfunders by the pussy.

Had a great conversation with someone about visualizing 4D.

During the conversation, I said something like, "So all life lives in a three-dimensional world under the fourth dimension of time. However, only humans have the capacity for self-awareness, creativity, intelligence, sapience, intentionality, to reason, to educate, and so much more. In other words, we are the only creatures on this planet that are aware of our existence in four dimensions. So could sentience and consciousness be considered a fifth dimension? Not a 5th dimension of space and time, but of reality to help define who were are and our present boundaries?"


I'm pretty sure consciousness and sentience are just words we use to describe various levels of the first person experience available to a lifeform. While there is some debate about where to draw certain lines, they all reside within the good ole spacetime we see before us.

They also front loaded most of the good vehicles and shit this time. (they keep some content locked to be released weekly for free).

I had stocked up a bunch of money after the last update and now I've spent like 2/3rds of it just buying the new vehicles and the new facility.

News Comments > Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Giveaway Underway
14. Re: Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Giveaway Underway Dec 12, 2017, 01:41 NKD
 
I really enjoyed Rogue. The main story is kind of short, and the protagonist is just kind of okay. Certainly better than Connor or Arno. The Naval combat is more or less identical to Black Flag so if you enjoyed that part you'll enjoy it.

The main problem Rogue has, without getting into any specific spoilers, is that the Assassins are very out of character and unreasonable after the end of the first act. It's almost as if the main character has slipped into the mirror universe on the way back from the previous mission.

The main characters responses to this are quite understandable, but why the Assassins are so out of character is never really adequately addressed.

Also Haytham Kenway shows up in Rogue, and he's probably my favorite character in the series. I wish he had gotten his own full game.
