If you think they are inferior and need a special case, special treatment, race segregation, then its of course not pandering. Its racism.

That's not how this works. That's not how any of this works.

I followed the post to the creators facebook page. That's not the PC case. That's one of the figures that goes on top of the case. That blogger has it wrong.

Wilford Brimley, 'Cocoon' and 'The Natural' Actor, Dead at 85.

RIP - loved him in "The Thing" and in Seinfeld.

But also The American Diabetes Association honored Brimley in 2008 for decades spent imploring viewers to check their blood sugar. does bugger all. We've known for quite some time that type 2 diabetes is due to the over-consumption of saturated fat. High blood sugar is just a symptom of the fat keep the sugar in the blood.

We can actually see it with our own eyes thanks to MRI machines. The fat blocks insulin from opening the cells, and feeding them sugar. Therefore the sugar lingers in the blood. So unblock the sink, instead of turning off the tap - address the cause, not the symptom.

And it's crap advice like that from the ADA that kept Brimley on diabetus medication for decades, when the whole time he was about 2 weeks away from being diabetes free. All he had to do is stop eating saturated fat for a while https://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-not-to-die-from-diabetes/

The medication Brimley was on, is likely what destroyed his kidneys. The side effects of drugs like metformin are nasty. But at least he didn't get fornes gangrene (don't google it if you are eating)

I'm not so sure about that. I'm not overweight, I don't eat saturated fats, and I have type II diabetes. My pancreas has stopped producing insulin without some prodding through medication (not metformin). No amount of diet is going to fix that. Diet does help me regulate blood sugar, however, but I would still need insulin one way or another.

The winemaking sim looks interesting. Doesn't appear to have much depth however. Have to keep an eye out for that one.

I'm pretty sure Cutter has me blocked. You can let him know there is a demo for 100 Days on Steam.

They note he "was accused of cheating on his wife and lying about his marital status,"

What does that have to do with sexual harassment?

Where does it say that it does?

The first and last sentences imply sexual harassment. The "also" is easy to breeze over.

As someone who doesn't have traditional television and yet thoroughly enjoys premiere league soccer (from the US), glad to see Twitch streaming games live!

You can stream games through Hulu live as well.

Perfect World is publishing this, that is a huge red flag.

Perfect World employs around 500 people at their North American location in Redwood. They acquired sister companies, Runic Games and Cryptic Studios and helped in the releasing of popular games such as Torchlight and Torchlight II in recent years.

They also Published Remnant: From the Ashes.

"On November 3, 2017, Perfect World announced the closure of Runic Games, along with large layoffs at Motiga. Perfect World said the closure was to reflect their company's focus on games as a service."

There is nothing more insulting than doing this after the reason provided for shutting down Relic Games. I'm passing on this. It is not made by the people who created Torchlight.

Not entirely true:

Max Schaefer, CEO of Echtra Games and co-founder of the Torchlight franchise.

He's quoted in the article...
