Until there is clear proof, I consider this "FBI/CIA Russia did it" spin fake news ;)

I wouldn't label that under fake news. That is news made by Prez, Congress, 16 agencies, it is real news. If it is all incorrect by design, that would actually be worse than fake news.

You mean a intentional misleading narrative spun with post-factual truths? Why.. I could have sworn that we saw something like this just recently......

I guess as a German, I also have the freedom to automatically assume that anything the US gov says is a lie. They've been lying about spying on us after all, they've lied when they were caught red-handed spying on Merkel, they lied about WMD's in Iraq...

See the problem is the institutions you quoted do not create faith in their words in me, they create endless doubt. ;/

Perhaps, but that isn't what is being labeled as Fake News. It is another thing, that in actuality would be worse if fabricated.

I do get your point, but perhaps try to look even deeper past the lies. The lies have been there forever, from everyone, since dawn and will continues to be, we cannot stop that. Demanding actions causes rifts. I say this because everyone ever in office has fallen victim to it, if it was a bad apple here or there I'd conclude something else, but everyone has lied to a certain level at the very least.

So I have to surrender if I were to run for office, avg joe, won, that first you and everyone else not even knowing me just assumes I'm a lying douche, it is what we do. But to me I'm still my ole self, good or bad. I know some go in with proper intentions. But something happens, imo it is seeing all the requests, hearing all the issues, looking at budgets, looking at time, looking at obligations. It consumes, it twists all. You are right they lie, but good ole you in the same place, you'd be a liar as well, but you like them would be able to justify it because of being put between a rock and a hard place a decision had to be made, you weighed and did the best you thought. So if we are all liars, we have to accept that is what the job does to the person.

So I have long ago accepted I've been lied to by my country something terrible, it isn't a maybe in my mind, it happened and still happens. But I had to dig deeper to see how I can justify this, use history as a guide. This is the way it has always been. Like kids these days. You know the stupid things we all live over and over again, person to person, generation to generation. That a person promising things becomes a trap, you can't promise and predict as well as you hope to. Like ship dates on games, some people will hold you to it, some to an extreme level, in this case it is just a game, those making games have found not promising works best, but being an official, you can't escape so easily, actions are demanded.

I also have fully embraced Heaven is not obtainable on Earth and don't even attempt to think anything close is possible. I've accepted all the warts of man, the goal now is to be a little bit better today than yesterday and that is something mans history shows we can do. We can do that. We can reach that. But we need gov't and the liars it creates to do that. It's a necessary evil, we wouldn't find we are better off without a gov't, after the deep pain created by thinking otherwise again, insert failed history lesson, a new gov't would be propped up, it will come with all the same traits as before, the broken promises, the lies, but it also gives standards we can't have otherwise, good standards, standards that are greater than the evils it creates.

It will be exactly this: "Meet the new boss, same..., King is dead, long..." sayings that are time tested and true. We'll have the same problems on the other side no matter what, the individual promises of something better will also be looked back to as just another lie, the overall results though will still be better than nothing.

I admit I did not expect such a profound explanation I can not discount your point that an outsider perspective will always have a vastly different perception... but to accept it, is to admit defeat. Not just to the government, but also humanity as a whole. Because with such a system we can not ever hope to survive changing climate or overpopulation or whatever else ails us in the future. As long as I have to always assume that my gov lies, the gov has a real lack of legitimacy. And the greater this becomes, the worse the counter reaction is by empowering angry and emotional reactions.

Although I am not sure I would prefer a politician that tells me a truth I don't want to hear. Maybe in the current system and political climate, that would actually be much worse.

Anyhow, I shall link you to this -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2F3y2bJzDJQ
which is not at all related to real world thankfully... (WH40k lore video)

Also I feel like this FBI story would fit a category called "Fake News" much better.... I mean did you read the article? 0 proof. They don't even hide that they don't have any. They are just spouting opinions, not news.

So the question is, if you spread this via Facebook, would be a crime? What would happen if Russia sued? ;p

Yup, and the timing is perfect right now with Amd's "Ryzen" 8c/16t beating and/or tieing Intel's 8c/16t 6900k. If this can translate to 6 cores and 4 core parts, I think I might just upgrade my 7 years old Xeon X3470 ( i7-870 equivalent ) and go with AMD this time around. Possibly with a 6 cores part if the price is right.

3 months or more to wait for that though.

Damn shame. I was really hoping they would try a shot at the WH40K universe, since this last one was so well recieved.

WH40k would require planetary travel, deformable terrain, and it's pretty clear that would not happen with this engine. So as much as I agree, it will probably be China or Korea

Too bad it didn't make the original funding goal, but I guess it also has something good. The original release date was a bit too optimistic. And finally thanks to Paypal I can actually support this

And nobody brings up the obvious problem when a company like Facebook and whatever dewbs work as "fact checkers" decide what is legit news and what isn't? How exactly is this not gonna end up as an ideologically slanted representation of news and censorship? And what about OP-ED's ?

You definitely have to have the right mentality for a-sync multiplayer. If you don't find joy in adversity and overcoming the uneven playing field then you are probably never going to. :p L4D to me was all about losing to learn.

You are of course correct But in a LAN it is never a good idea to rolfstomp your friends unless you wanna play that game never again. ^^

Edit: To remove a comma.. I don't understand english commas anymore.. German commas are already confusing enough. Damn I am getting too old to bother with commas.

Played Evolve at a LAN last weekend when we were down to 5 players. One guy insisted he be the monster. 3 games, he lost all 3 times. Said it's impossible to win as the monster. I have played the game just as much as he has (training, and the 3 rounds, plus when it had a free weekend a long time ago).

So I played as the monster. I was unstoppable.

But did he have fun playing foot soldier against you when you were unstoppable? ^^ I would think not...

Chilis (jarred or fresh, sliced and seeded)
1 Alarm: No peppers
3 Alarm: 5 oz hot jalapeno peppers
5 Alarm: Hot: Three habanero peppers and a few jalapenos or some chipoltle
Weapons grade: Seven habanero peppers

I had a successful growing season here on the windowsills of Barad-Dur. My habanero plant had a field day and produced 15 or so nice ripe chilis, and my scotch bonnet plant is also producing a crop right now.

Any suggestions of the best way to use these little bombs is welcome. Chili would be good but I'm vegetarian (no, really!). I do eat fish and seafood (so pescatarian, I guess).

Anyone have a killer (not literally) hot sauce recipe?

Thanks!

I make my xmas chilli with a dash of German dark beer (250 to 300ml)... aside that tomato.. many a sliced tomato.. tomato paste, red beans (3 whole cans!) and (grilled onions, garlic, I make them with the meat, but you can do that without meat..), pepperoni (the non-hot variety) sliced, for taste, not for spice, and a few fresh hot ones from a local plant which also gave me quite a harvest of some pretty hot stuff, for my chilli I use 2 whole (sliced) picked jalapeno peppers. I also have dried jalapeno which I ground and add (a tablespoon, not more), pepper (ground) and cumin (ground)

Serve with cheddar cheese and spot of sour creme.

If you were doing this with meat, I would mix the onions and garlix, as well as a shot of soy-sauce into the meat while it simmers and I stir it so it becomes tiny tasty pieces of fire

This stuff is a huge hit in my family, so I must be doing something right. To be honest, 2 freshly picked ones is pretty damn weapon grade chilli this season, I didn't expect that. Apparently my "1 star" (no, seriously, it was sold as pepperoni) is actually so hot that it is far more weapon grade than anything I can buy in stores called jalapeno... go figure.

Ps.: if you buy tomatos pre-sliced and beans in cans, dump them whole in the pot, but don't dump anything with vinegar in the pot...

PPs.: Obviously I also use meat, 400g of minced meat of whatever I find fresh at my local butchery.

Desert is apple based with cinnamon boiled and stirred, and then mixer applied in the pot, raisins soaked in proper rum, and the rum that they soaked in added along with the raisins, really easy, and super tasty after a chilli.

To be honest, it's important to remember that you probably need 2kg of apples for that, and peeling them, and removing the innards and all that, is a pain, but chilli + compote is awesome. My only regret this year is that I have chilli, but no more xmas apples compote

Yeah, apart from DirectX I have the suspicion that nothing MS ever did enhanced my gaming.. in any way, shape, or form. Quite the contrary when I think back to GFWL

Yep, clearly a touchstone and a turning point in computer gaming. It is difficult to think there will ever be anything like it again in computer gaming.

Doom was a turning point for sure, but for me the defining gaming moment would be first starting Unreal. Back then I had 2 friends over, and the next 7 hours we forgot time and space, even eating, and were absorbed for the first time in what to us, was the most awesome gaming experience ever made.

Doom/Wolfen was censored in Germany.. so yeah

I'm amused how people care more about who was the messenger, than they do about the message.

And yet in your sidenote you make clear that the only thing that matters when we know the facts, is who tells you otherwise and why. Not what he says specifically.

The messenger is far more important than the message. If you don't know the intention of the former, you can't trust the latter whatsoever. Hence, establishing that CIA says thing X, means it's 100% bullshit no matter what is said. An agency built upon lies, will never ever tell you the truth.

Michigan Transportation Director Kirk Steudle concedes that there will be crashes and probably a fatality involving autonomous cars.
But they get to test in snow so that makes it all better. Lawsuits in 3-2-1

It does make me wonder how all this is going to work with such unpredictable weather and outcomes. I get it we make plenty of mistakes, but when you rely on systems, it seems liability shuffles to mfg vs driver. The backlash is going to be legendary. Could be wrong.

Not at all. I will bet you any amount of money that legislation is passed in support of the automakers/software developers that fully indemnifies them. Much like you can't sue the phone company, just go to arbitration - that favors them anyway - at best. In short, getting into an autonomous vehicle will mean you automatically waive your right to sue. As for accidents between drivers and autonomous vehicles you can bet they'll pull out all the stops to make sure the driver loses that battle.

those deadly 2 ton phones barreling down the road killing everything in sight.

Far more deadly in the hands of humans though, that is statistical fact

Think about what this say about humans that the only way we can reduce the 1.3m deaths per year is to replace the human drivers...

Can't happen soon enough, if you ask me. But equally I am worried that such a system will have problems in winter and the twilight weather between 0C where you can never fully predict whether it's just really foggy or slippery as fuck because nature decided to fuck THAT corner in particular.

When it's free to play, nothing in it has any value to me whatsoever. Without binding me to a game through a purchase, you won't bind my perception of value to the game. And I think this is how it works for the majority of people, but I could be wrong.

Yeah that or the incredibly popular and free MOBAs this is trying to compete with have the same business model...

They don't have any draw to me though, this is why I am a bit confused about the whole F2P thing. I tried them all none of them could hold my attention, and I seem to have a huge barrier in my mind against paying for anything in a f2p title. And equally, once a game is free (but not a gift) then I have an even bigger barrier in my mind against even playing it for any length

Guess I am just weird ^^
