That's funny, I would have thought one of the main problems in the USA would continue to be data caps, which haven't fucking gone anywhere, in spite of 4k video streaming, in addition to all of these game streaming attempts.
Even if Google had given the utmost effort and support to developers, done millions of dollars worth of ads, Stadia still would have failed because people would start cancelling as soon as they hit their data caps for the month in like 3 days.

They are so profitable right now, they don't need to go public, unless it's so that Tim Sweeney (or probably more to the point, Tencent), can cash out.

I swear, the headlines these days... you couldn't pay most people to believe this shit would be happening, 10-15 years ago. Not that the world was in that much better shape, but holy fuck has it gone sideways in the past 4-5 years.

That sub vid was interesting. Do those people not have any healthy food to eat? Everything looks like it's super processed and exceedingly high in sugar and salt.
Let's play "Spot the person who has never been on a deployment of any kind."
Oops, I already won.
Hey, you know what else comes frozen that aren't chicken fingers and hot dogs? Fruits and vegetables. And Americans wonder why they're the most obese nation on earth.

Techno is music, German court declares.
Not, it isn't. Never has been, never will. It is just a classic soundloop of death of an old Atari game when the Atari 2600 crashed. This is not arts, this is not music - it is an unexpected accident. You don't want that to happen.
AND NOW GET OFF MY LAWN, YOUNG GERMAN JUDGES!
Damned law punks.

Wow, the CDC is like 20+ years late on that one...
i was talking to a conservative friend about this a couple days ago and he told me masks don't do shit to protect you from diseases.
i went back to dustin hoffman in outbreak. "come on dude, you know that shit was based on real life. how do you think we're working with deadly diseases every day if masks don't work??" i couldn't believe it, it actually gave him pause.
I tell people that if they really believe that they should start telling their dentists and doctors that theyre ok with them not wearing masks. Most of them just look at me all confused. I wonder if they even make the connection at all or realized just how stupid they are and chose not to say anything. My guess would be the former.

Quick question for the two Senate seats in Georgia -- I'm guessing each candidate (except the incumbents) had to state they were specifically running for seat A or seat B. Is that right?
I don't even know how to properly phrase it on the googler.

It's cruel taking sucker bets, even Vegas had Biden favored.
You're buddy must be a founding member of the low brow brain trust because he believed and repeated everything Cucker Tarlson, Sean Blammity and the dotus spewed verbatim.
And statistically Vice President Joe Biden is still not president elect. Only an idiot would pay a debt when he hadn't lost yet.

a little bit of branch prediction (cuz i play chess and it's fun), almost certainly trump will run for president again assuming he's not thrown in prison at some point. his amoral sociopathic ego won't allow him to just accept a defeat. he is psychologically compelled to fight on so that he doesn't have to accept being a loser.

i'll be up 210 dollars on this election, hopefully. so far i've had one trump voter acknowledge reality and call me to pay his 50 dollar bet.
in the last weeks of the race it was super rare to get any of them to bite when i'd ask if they wanted to make a friendly bet on the outcome.
what were your bets, if i may ask? just that trump would win? this election was way closer than i ever guessed it would be, but still almost statistically impossible for trump to win. he would've needed to flip almost every battleground state to pull it off, and how likely is it that if you flip a coin 10 times, it'll all be heads? that's what he was up against. not a bet i'd ever take, but trump supporters aren't known for their deep understanding of statistics.
