I wonder if ship sales are slowing down now. This is a weird thing to sell, at an awful high price point.

April 2017: $ 2,600,000
May 2017: $ 2,700,000
June 2017: $ 2,300,000
July 2017: $ 2,375,000
August 2017: $ 2,700,000
September 2017: $ 1,700,000
October 2017: $ 3,250,000

and I'm sure November will be much higher than those.

So i guess the answer to your question is "no"

. And that immigrants need to do more to assimilate, including at least having functional English and a whole host of other things before they even set foot here.

Right?? I went to Montreal last year and all these fucks were speaking French. And I said to my wife, haven't they assimilated and learned English yet? It's been 250 years!

K-bec has always been a major PITA in Canada's ass. They're pretty much given up on separatism now, and they should have never entertained it in the first place. The only thing keeping them employed and having to need to NOT speak English is remaining in Canada. The overwhelming majority of Canadians are just as fed up with Quebec. They're constantly pandered to by the liberals with the lion share of tax dollars going to the province for everything just to placate them. Most people would rather just boot them out of the country entirely. And by that I mean literally send the separatists back to France. They're going to lose the language one day, it's inevitable as the tides. The sooner they learn to cope with it, the better off for everyone.

And once again the ignoramus has spoken.

Why didn't they do this at any point during Obama's admin?

Because Dems had control of Congress for only 2 years during Obama's term, and during that time they were dealing with the completely crashed economy, quarmire wars, out of control spending, healthcare crisis, etc. that the GOP left them with. They focused on those issues while they could, then the GOP took back Congress and said they would pass no legislation that helps this country, because their only goal was making Obama a one term president. And darned if they didn't sit on their hands and do absolutely nothing except attack Obama and Hillary for the next 6 years, instead of passing legislation that would have helped this country recover from the GOP messes.

Then they won the presidency and have spent the past 9 months looking like clowns, showing they have no idea how to run a country, and can't even pass their own legislation with absolute control of all three branches of government.

Yeah I find it so baffling how an avg IQ person can't see it. Somehow they believe the mouthbreathers GOP constant complete bullshit, it's unreal
-edit i want to make clear I am no fan of the corporate democrats who pull much of the same shit (but let's be honest, you can't be as corrupt and hypocrite as a GOP'er) so even small change is better than nothing.

What do you want reformed, what do you think will happen, and what evidence do you have that the changes will bring those impacts?

the money will trickle down of course, he can't wait to get his share from the trickle from the estate tax which will be no more for example

People like to tell themselves its just kids with their parents credit cards, but it's an adult, more often than not. The percentage of parents that just let their kids buy whatever the fuck they want on their credit cards is not really high enough to sustain a business model...

There's no telling what the numbers are, children vs. adults, of who decides to buy stuff like this, but I agree that the majority of dollars spent has to be adults. Maybe little Johnny asks his mom to load up his account with $10-20 now and then, and there are a lot of others like him, but grown-up gamer Jeff will throw around hundreds or even thousands of dollars into it because for better or worse, he's in charge of all of his own finances. Video games as an industry are bigger than ever not because the world population is rising and there are more kids around than 20 years ago, it's because the generation of people who grew up with the hobby are now adults with careers and LOADS of money to spend on it.

Yep...truly stupid people with nothing better to do than circulate fake news and imbecilic hate. Whew... These disgruntled customers are so amusing...KS customers still think, no matter how many times they are told the opposite, that when they contribute to KS programs they are actually buying *nothing at all.* There's no "pre-order" involved. There are no guarantees, no contracts--putting money in a KS is merely seeding a company and individuals you like/trust with seed money in the hopes they are able to accomplish what they started. With a KS, there are no promises made to anyone. IMO, only fund KS with people with solid reputations who have a lot to lose if their KS fails. I've funded a KS or two--and not been burned by following those recommendations. Quite the contrary, I have been more than pleased by the result.

OTOH, if you want to invest your money with an individual or company you've never heard of, that no one else has heard of, either, then never invest more than you can afford to lose. SC is making refunds and is still very much a going concern, accordingly. When KS's fail, however, usually the principal involved escapes with the money--free and clear and 100% legal, that's true.

Why a few of these SC KS people are so full of angst and hate for SC beats me. SC is a game so ambitious that no publisher anywhere would attempt to underwrite it--because it takes far too long for a publisher's comfort. If and when the game is finished, and if and when it meets the goals it is trying to reach, it is definitely going to be one-of-a-kind, and we can thank not only the developers for it, but also the KS investors who stayed the course. Well, that's my opinion, only, of course...;)
Dangit, I have to agree with a WaltC post. wonders will never cease.

yah that shit is crazy, sometimes his brain synapses aren't totally jacked up, baffles me

For parts of Florida, Hurricane Irma offers a worst-case scenario.

But hey, global warming is a hoax, so I'm gonna keep rollin' coal in my Hummer.
The good thing about global warming is that NOAA will have to add extra categories to the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.
5 ain't cutting it anymore.

There are practical reasons to do so. Buildings rated for cat-5 hurricanes that were built to withstand 185 mph winds were demolished by the 240 mph (!) gusts of Irma.

?

I'm guessing KPH and MPH got crossed to get that 240 total. 240 KPH = 150 MPH.

not really.. 185 SUSTAINED winds is what Irma was when it hit the Turks & Caicos Islands. Gusts way higher isn't uncommon...

The problem isn't the casual racism it's the SJWs with their massive overreactions to it. Even when people are simply accused of something they lose their shit. Look at that story a few weeks back where that asshole on Twitter who felt it was his personal mission to "out" racists they ended up blaming an innocent man. They were calling his house and making death threats to his wife and kids FFS! And these assholes aren't even a minority! They are just look for reasons to go off and they don't care who gets hurt or how extreme their overreactions are and that makes them way more dangerous and way worse than the so-called bigots and racists they're opposing. Hitch up your fucking panties and stop throwing hissy fits over every little thing - especially when it doesn't even apply to you. Fuck, go end poverty or something actually worthwhile.

You tell em Cutter. Most people these days don't even understand how harmless casual racism is. At least compared to the ultra-hardcore kind.

Hell I didn't even know what the hell casual racism was until you made it clear. And I sure as hell don't know what offends me. I've only been black for like 42 years or so. Totally need a clear-headed white person to sort out my thoughts for me.

But while we're on the subject, you wanna explain to me why the 'casual racists' (especially the ones raking in millions) need defending while the 'more serious racists' need condemning?

Hey buddy, listen, the problem isn't people being racist, it's people calling people racist. That's where the real harm is. Words are just words, unless they're aimed at a white guy like cutter, then they're seriously offensive.

amen

F*ck you guys are stupid.

No, we're not. Maybe you and your ilk could try and stop being such whiny little bitches about everything. That's a much better solution. Oh wait, I said bitch! Shrill liberal SJW fit incoming in 3...2...1...

The only person on this board that bitches about more things than you do is CJ. You're miserable, and seem to spend as much time as possible trying to make everyone else here miserable. When called out, you call them a troll or a hypocrite or a conservative or a liberal or an SJW.

Buy a mirror, look into it, say the words you're about to type into it, and see how it makes you look.

gl with that

Meanwhile 20 minutes ago at the gas station I was next to a dude blasting hip hop music in which every third word was n*****. Ah, hypocrisy.

This. This latest n-word hysteria is fueled by fervent egos boosting themselves as morally superior. It's counter productive and divisive. The real dangerous racism is what has been institutionalized and I don't hear any of them calling for an end to that (ie. the drug war).

Not this. People enjoy mocking their friends. People get angry when strangers mock their friends.

This isn't hard, and white people angry that they can't say the word without being called a racist is ridiculous. White people who claim it's "just a word" while freaking out when a different word, racist, is used to describe their actions are equally ridiculous.

Not to mention, who the hell do you mean when you say "any of them?" I'm pretty certain nearly every rapper, nearly every liberal, and nearly every African American calls for the end of the drug war repeatedly and often. But that there's horrible institutionalized racism doesn't excuse racist dumbfucks.

Seriously, where the hell are you that you never hear any of "them" call for the end of the war on drugs?

In his Breitbart/Drudge Report/ Fox news echo chamber of course. The same one Walter C inhabits.

Steam Support has in-app and registry-based solutions for turning the Xbox DVR off. Disabling Windows Updates like Mashiki suggested should only be a last resort as it's a big security issue. "Microsoft cares about PC gamers" is basically the trickle-down economics of the tech world.

All this stuff is a mind fuck.

It's a big security risk? I think I'm having much more problems with companies fumbling my data around on their end, then I have security issues on mine.

Face it we are naked in a helpless ocean of data.

One person has an issue and they think that is normal for many.

Some have stuttering, doesn't mean all.

The best news is they are addressing it, good.

I reckon those that don't have Win10 think there is some type of hassle and issue after issue bedeviling it's users. I was golden with 7 and just as golden with 10. Pretty much the same thing day in and out.

Yup, I don't have the stutter, yep I didn't have the USB issue someone had here. I didn't have the sleep issue another did. But there is also a person out there with a stuttering issue with their Win7, a usb issue with their Win7 and sleep issue with their Win7.

I get what you are really fighting about and that is... you think we are being data mined more with Win10 than Win7 and a little more heavy handed upgrading practices, that's about it. But again we are naked in a digital world and whatever you think is sacred about your data... you've given that up voluntarily or involuntarily a long time ago. I sleep at night knowing any shenanigans like that, I've had no problem getting problems reversed, good, otherwise this would be a nightmare.


finally a post with some brains.
