Lets face it -- so far nothing has beaten the Quake 3 engine. Timedemos, MaxFPS and graphical and sound tweaks galore.You could get your best balanced and desired FPS / visual combination with almost any painfully weak to ultra powerful computer system - simply by adjusting, tweaking, measuring and capping via the plethora of easily available settings.

Summary: JC needs to clone himself.

If you haven't figured it out yet ...

The anti-gay preacher hopes to quarantine the infected to set a precedence and instill fear in order to eventually quarantine all gay people. He hopes to convince people that it's a 'gay disease' and they should all be isolated from society.

The activist hopes to quarantine the infected to stop the spread of the disease so that more gays will come out, unite, and educate each other. Eventually, educating the general public that it's not a 'gay disease' and that gay people should be accepted by all of society.

Both used the same words and believed in quarantine, stating it as a 'fact of what needs to be done'.

But I'm only speaking about the truth of statements and saying they are independent of the person making the statement. Moral relativism and ethical theories have nothing to do with it.

People aren't simply computers processing calculations and churning out results. They are complex creatures capable of having their own motivation and able to manipulate others by demonstrating - or feigning - expertise and associations.

I'll give you a fictional example:

It's the middle of the AIDS crisis...

Professor Smith, a scholar and well respected medical doctor, stands behind the podium and lectures, "We need to quarantine the infected patients to prevent the spread of the virus!"

Preacher:

An anti-gay and conservative religious preacher stands at the podium and preaches, "I shall quote a highly respected scholar and medical doctor - Professor Smith, 'We need to quarantine the infected patients to prevent the spread of the virus!'"

Activist:

A gay rights activist stands and talks to his fellow activists, "I shall quote a highly respected scholar and medical doctor - Professor Smith, 'We need to quarantine the infected patients to prevent the spread of the virus!'"

Both quote the same person and words. Do you think there is a difference? Or do you believe the words are the same, therefore so is the intent and desired results?

If Adolf Hitler said that 3+3=6 it is irrelevant that Adolf Hitler was a moral monster as far as the truth of 3+3=6 is concerned.

The end justifies the means? By that logic it's fine if slavery or vivisection was used to further advance human technological or medical progress as long as the end result benefits the majority or future generations? Sorry .. I don't buy that. Certain wrongs should be 'unconditionally wrong', otherwise we encounter a sort of moral relativism which will lead to sadism, exploitation, and a 'dictatoriship by will of the majority' crushing and abusing the minority or weak members of society; this is the reason why we live in a republic vs. a pure democracy - to prevent such things. I realize I'm taking your statement to the extreme and gettting quite a bit away from the point you made. But, I believe I have a valid counter-point based on a broad historical scale.

You can live out your life imaginging death from earthquakes, car accidents, strokes, random crime, poor health, free radical build-up, and the list goes on ... Or you can live every moment and hope there is a spirtual continuation. Or you can live every moment by the moment and make existential peace with the fact that nothing is certain. I have a point there somewhere, well, or, I don't but that's also a point.

This is how the moderators of Star Citizen Reddit responded.

"you have been banned from posting to /r/starcitizen.
you can contact the moderators regarding your ban by replying to this message. warning: using other accounts to circumvent a subreddit ban is considered a violation of reddit's site rules and can result in being banned from reddit entirely."

Pretty much what I thought. There will be absolutely no dissent in the Star Citizen new universe order. This is the mark of a group of people who literally live a bubble of lies and cannot handle opposing viewpoints. I'm not done with them.

Alternatively, spend time volunteering to help people in need, save rescued animals, develop work based skills, read something educational, find love, go outside, etc. Imagine yourself 10 years from now, possibly regretting what you have done or haven't done today. Don't let your future self down. Thumbsup

That really is a shame, guy is hall of fame material for gaming if there ever was one. Perhaps its the cynic in me, but i wonder if him battling his disease is related in anyway to the lackluster performance of nintendo the last several years. Perhaps the new CEO will ignite some new perspective and bring nintendo back.

What do you think he was part of some Borg-like Nintnedo collective? The man most likely had a completely separate private life (which includes his medical history) that is none of our business.

So you dont think someone's private life can effect someone work? Ok....

Is this a bidirectional conjecture? Earlier you just speculated the opposite,

I tend to just drive around the peninsula and mainly use PCH to get around the South Bay. Often I prefer Highway 1 when going northbound. For cycling, I ride along the coastline, of course. I wouldn't mind seeing a large concrete wall surrounding and protecting the South Bay from the rest of LA 's craziness.

Dear Blue, you have been confronted by Generation W. The W stands for wuss or whine. It's a cultural epidemic.

Too bad Ralph Baksi never got to finish his LOTR film. That was trippy.

And I still prefer all the old Harryhausen flicks and things like 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Journey to the Center of the Earth, et al. to any of the newfangled stuff.

Old movies have an unmatched charm. Since the special effects were quite bad, they relied on good writing and acting. Today, that seems optional.

Hates ta say it buuuuut...

If that deer was in the south...it would already be in someone's pot or freezer...sorry, jus' sayin'

Deer are a nuisance animal in the northeast. Since killing all the wolves, the population exploded. Dad used to hunt them with his bow, and we'd have venison on occasion.

Huddled together, we pounded our chests and screamed the call of our tribe. We shook the trees to instill fear within the forest. Weapons and armor prepared, we painted symbols on our faces with the blood of the endangered wolf. Its ancestral spirit possessed our bodies. The hunt was on! Together we chanted, "Death to the deer! Kill the Bambi!"

go change your diapers, old man

Don't quote me while I'm editing. Grr ...

Respect your elders you little whippersnapper!

Deer are a nuisance animal in the northeast. Since killing all the wolves, the population exploded. Dad used to hunt them with his bow, and we'd have venison on occasion.

Huddled together, we pounded our chests and shrilled the call of our tribe. We violently shook the trees. The branches rattled and loudly chattered, stirring birds into fearful flight, causing leaves to sporadically swirl around in the shaking wind, fluttering to the ground in shapes of chaos. The ambience of the forest emanated with fear and dread.

Arrows sharpened, bow strings tightened and armor reinforced for combat, we were prepared for victory. We painted each other's faces with terrifying and warlike symbols. Fear was our ultimate weapon. In sanctimonious ritual, we each took turns and drank from the sacred cup. It was filled with the blood of the endangered wolf. Its ancestral spirit possessed and imbued our bodies with the power of the predator - the power of sense, the power of skill, the power of the hunt.

Together we chanted, "Death to the deer!"

With the mystic force of the wolf's blood coursing through our veins, we could smell the scent of fear, see hidden shadows, hear the slightest whisper, and feel the fall of a distant feather landing softly upon the ground. The hunger consumed us. Our minds were filled with the inescapable craving for the kill, the desire for the tender flesh of prey, and the fresh blood of slayed life. We became the wolf.
