To be clear, most of those missiles were manufactured 50 years plus ago. I heard a statistic that 80% wouldn't make it off the launch pad.

I would bet that those sub launched ones would be better maintained. But I would also have bet that Russia steamrolled Ukraine in a week too. With poor maintenance on that equipment fielded being a major reason for their failures there.

...not that any single nuke landing being anything less then a serious problem all around. And they have 1500 of them "deployed"...

He said we have 20+ attack subs who’s only purpose is to shadow and sink Russian boomers.
The Russians know their subs would all disappear before they could get off any nukes.
I hope he is right. I hope we don't find out.

13 states have legislation that automatically goes into effect (some immediately, others within 60 days) once the ruling comes out.

Despite 70% of folks wanting Abortion to stay, this is going down.

I'm predicting that the GOP is going to be the dog that catches the car and really not going to be happy with the future results of this.

I'm not sure why letting states decide is such a disaster for abortion supporters. Sure a young lady might have to buy a bus ticket to California but is that really so onerous?
Some states are trying to pass laws to criminalize abortions for its residents even if they get them done out of state.

And the theory of this ruling puts all sorts of cases at risk: Griswold (right to contraception), Loving (interracial marriage), Lawrence (gay marriage), and many others. If this ruling passes as is, it's a radical reversal of 50+ years of court rulings. It's as if the court decided to undo decades of civil rights cases and allow Jim Crow laws again. Oh wait, I forgot they did already.

It's shocking to me that I'm still playing Skyrim and was happy to buy it a second time. The fact that they are looking for "most played" rather then "good" doesn't give me any hope.

It's a game that mostly plays itself, however, the execution is well done.

I do have to tip my hat to you. You are not alone in your practice. Any easy money to developers, particularly to Indy titles, is a good thing.

This is a fun one, I already bought it on steam, but sure I'll grab a free copy on epic so they have to pay the devs a bit more.
Definitely recommend playing this if any of the tags for it interest you.

Epic games it’s just gonna lean everyone over and we are all going to take it??! What happened to the days where we had standards? Omg

You're complaining at free stuff that:
1. Benefits old game companies (I'm reasonably sure they get paid from Epic something),
2. Benefits consumers, (I was looking for that game, myself),
3. Costs Epic money (I'm assuming you don't like them),
4. Did I mention free? (You don't need to click it).

You feeling ok? Are you looking to be outraged? Go get a drink, meal and a nap, my dude.

I'm dying to know how (let alone why) you think Biden has any relevance to video game prices.

MrBone wrote on Mar 8, 2021, 10:50:
Please stop the crying and wailing. This is the new normal so you need to sit back and adjust your high-chair for it. Besides, with Biden in office, these things are only going to escalate.

The easiest and surest way to get them to back off from high prices is to not buy them at those prices. Isn't that what capitalism is supposed to do?

And, yes, we shouldn't put down real money for preordering, which only incentivizes poor quality.

"That stat 73% refers to actual women journalists, not narcistic internet wannabes. And it is despicable."

Way to take a great big ol' dump on facts you don't like, without any facts, logic, nor reasoning.

"The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) conducted a global survey of over 900 women journalists last year, and the results are frightening: 73% of women journalists who responded had experienced online violence in the course of their work."

How very Reich of you. And what about the stupid people we have now? Just wait 40 years for them to croak?

Who would you like to write those rules for whom gets to spawn? Republicans? Democrats? Yourself? With which would you find the most absurd? Please tell us with your "native intelligence" and educate us.

"You want to make the world a better place? Start with legislating and licensing reproduction. Until population control becomes real everywhere that happens the rest is all just so much talk that means nothing. It all begins there. I doubt most people have either the native intelligence or education to understand that however."

Cutter wtf is up with you lately and go read the article and stfu otherwise.

Spoken like a left-wing fascist, 'Either do and believe as we say or you won't be permitted to do anything at all!' Hate freedom much?


I will repeat myself since I didn't see any reply.
(Unless it was the one removed, which suggests that you aren't interested in reasonable discussion.)

You want to see a party win in order to make the other lose? Not for morals, ethics, policy, effectiveness but only to be vindictive.

Do you hear yourself? WTF is wrong with you that you have so little insight into your words?

Your fixation of hating freedom and championing rights, seems more then a little convenient.

Got a citation or evidence for your point of "that lack of diversity more often than not coincides with lack of interest shown by the minority demographics."?

I think the majority of fandoms have experienced the opposite. Certainly Hollywood has doubled down on the concept, to a variety of degrees of effect.

Besides which do you really think Gameindustry.Biz makes Dem (or any) policy? They are looking for clicks and coverage. And congrats, you were played by their stomping on your buttons in there search for offensive buzzwords.

So only people of a particular ethnicity can create characters of said ethnicity? Is there no end to liberal stupidity and racism? This sort of idiocy leads to less diversity, not more. If it becomes such a monumental issue then people simply won't do it. Why risk the ire of the liberal mob because you didn't bow down to their insanity? Oh right, but then the liberal mob will crucify you for not having minorities in your work. That's why the best thing to do is ignore them entirely. The moment you give into them, you lose.

I want to see the GOP take complete control of Congress - and they stand a very good chance of doing that - for absolutely no other reason than to give a huge middle-finger to the insanity of liberal America.

The point is that for Redeye, it will never be good enough, because what he wants is never going to happen: which is zero police brutality / zero violent arrests etc (against blacks, of course -- his ilk seem to give zero fucks about any other race). There will always be some dude filming some arrest or police interaction gone wrong, either due to a bad cop, a mistake, or something entirely just but ripped out of context. If hysteria from people like him doesn't give way to impassionate reason, it will never be good enough. Mark my words.

There about 50 to 60 million encounters between civilians and cops each year and about 10 million arrests. So of the 10 million occasions where a person attracts the attention of the police and the police decide to make an arrest, about 1000 of those people die as a result.

If you're going to let the health of race relations in the US or the relationship between the community and the police depend on whether you ever see a terrible video of police misconduct again, those relations are doomed.

Why should I mark your words? Redeye seems more then capable of explaining himself and no one on Earth seems to be looking for Zero brutality/violent arrests. All I've heard being sought is accountability and reasonableness, neither of which should effect good policing.

Well, if the police were made to keep records of those deaths, then we might have something of your "facts" to substantiate. But they don't keep those records, which seems like an obvious and easy problem to solve. Wouldn't you agree?

Indeed. If folks need to demonstrate before getting meaningful justice, it will never stop. Nor should it.
Unless you think that it's perfectly ok that cops execute folks, without a trial, in non-emergency situations.
In which case, we're done talking civilly.

I agree, it will definitely take many more protests and riots before all of this is said and done. imho

With millions of arrests a year, and cameras at the ready everywhere, it will never be "said and done" for the likes of you. You'll realize it someday. It'll either be anarchy (you "win") or a totalitarian police state. That's it. Either way, we'll all really lose until people like you learn to shut up and think.

There are a few oceans that could fill that distance between totalitarianism and anarchy. Things like police accountability, keeping military hardware away from street cops, not using banned weapons against civilians, police being investigated by non-police officers seem quite reasonable requests. So why the binary thinking?
