We truly live in a gilded age. We need to get back to a 90% top bracket tax rate, inclusive of capital gains.
You damn dirty socialist.

Kidding aside, yes. I'm baffled why average citizens are opposed to higher brackets. We're talking about taxing incomes orders of magnitude higher than most of us will ever see, and yet people act as though they themselves will be driven further into poverty as a result. It's absurd.

I mean just swap the groups around.
WHY DO YOU THINK THIS CHANGES ANYTHING?

Are you really so blind as to think the left would excuse the behavior if perpetrated by BLM or other left-leaning groups? You really can't imagine that they'd still be held accountable, can you? That's sick.

They assaulted the capital. Beat cops. Tore down the American flag to fly their own, including the flag of an enemy nation. Breached the building by smashing doors and windows. Showed up with zipcuffs, assorted weapons, and a gallows. Spoke of and threatened to kill members of the government. Forced said politicians to flee their workplace in literal fear for their lives.

All of this in an effort to overturn the results of the most secure, free, and fair election in American history. And you think changing the identity of the perpetrators would make it okay in the eyes of liberals. Riiight. And they're the bad guys.

I don't know if it's treason or terrorism (whynotboth.gif), but it sure as shit doesn't matter if it was committed by the left or right. Investigate, charge them, and throw their traitorous asses in prison.

How did this go from "sexual assault is bad" to "there was/wasn't an attempt to overthrow the government" earlier this year...
You're absolutely right and I apologize for the above off topic rant. I said I wouldn't get distracted, but the egregious ignorance was too hard to ignore. I guess they win this round.

Bullshit! That's exactly what you're doing. You're trying to DICTATE how everyone else should behave, what they should believe, what they should think.
If by this you mean to imply that I believe people should not denigrate, demean, or otherwise mistreat others because of their sex, then YES. I am absolutely making that demand. I am loudly and proudly demanding that we treat people fairly and respectfully and equally vociferously asserting that my position is more moral than the alternative.

Argue that I'm wrong.

Please. A handful of people making unreasonable demands on social media (seriously?), regardless of position on the political spectrum, does not constitute this grand movement towards totalitarian politeness that you've convinced yourself is occurring. That's just modern right-wing FUD and faux outrage and a solid indicator that you're not prepared to make a grownup argument. File it alongside "they're gonna take our guns" and "America's number one!" and "socialism is bad, mmmkay."

If we want to be a better people, then maybe, just maybe:
  • we should apologize when we do something wrong.
  • we should make amends for those things.
  • we should admit that, even if we're not responsible, some people have been hurt or disadvantaged or held back and are deserving of our help and compassion.

None of these things prevent you from living a life of self-obsession and privilege, replete with whatever racist, sexist, or nationalistic bullshit you care to endorse, but as the meme goes, I don't know how to explain that you should care about other people.

But if you don't, don't. You do you. Just don't bitch and moan when the rest of us try to do better.

No one's asking for that. But it's morally correct that people who've been wronged be heard and their experiences improved. Why does that offend you so? Shouldn't we all want people to live happier lives? I imagine since it doesn't affect you personally you simply don't care.

The accusation that holding people accountable for the mistreatment of others is representative of "the radical left" is shockingly obtuse. It's sad that justice and equality are alienating concepts for so many.

I would LOVE another Splinter Cell. Blacklist rates among the best of the genre and a personal favorite, the recast Sam Fisher notwithstanding. Given their recent missteps, though, I'll be skeptical until I see how it plays.

EDIT: My enthusiasm lasted all of a few hours.

I dont want to play a Michael Bay movie trying to be a game.
I guess that sums up my feelings about the latest games. What I miss most is the feeling of presence I got from BF3/4, where my character seemed to have weight and the experience felt intimate (BF3 was superior in that regard). It seems like in subsequent iterations it all got glossed over; flashier but somehow cheaper and less personal.

I hope they return to form with this one, but I'll be highly skeptical until I see it in full. I wish I could get as stupid excited about this as I'd get back in the day (remember the Jay-Z trailer?), but Battlefield's decline has left me jaded. It's funny to think I used to preorder those games. A bygone era.

Looks like my next watch will be the extended version.
It's a mixed bag, IMO. Some scenes really do flesh out details and make the story a bit richer, but others I could do without. In particular, Annie's gender equality comments seem forced and I'd have preferred to live a life in which I never learned what felching is. Per the advice of the movie, don't Google it if you haven't already. That scene is the reason I have to insist that certain people—my parents, for example—never watch the extended cut.

I'm really curious to see if this game's ten missions deviate at all from the original Startopia's. In all other respects it seems to be substantively identical.

Cool. But, no thanks.
The effect really isn't very good, either. I only tried a couple Mega Man games, so YMMV, but it seemed to just add needless graphical clutter in an effort to make it look 3D, and was often quite glitchy, with parts of the extra bits flickering off and on, sometimes even obscuring original details.

Maybe it's better in VR, but I gave up after about ten minutes and went back to a normal emulator.

EDIT: I hadn't watched the video when I commented, but... wow. That looks very different than what I experienced. They even showed some Mega Man footage and it looks nothing like what I saw. Maybe it's come a long way since I tried it...

Regardless, as interesting as it is, I honestly think I prefer the games in their original form. Undecided

Another vote for 2143. Nearly a decade after they first started teasing it I'm getting a bit pissed it's still nowhere to be seen. That said, after Hardline/1/V I'm skeptical they can make a good game again, so maybe it's best they prove themselves with a modern iteration before making the game I really want.

Truth be told, though, I think their design philosophy has strayed too far from BF3/4 and the Battlefield I love is dead.

It's like some PC gamers are just willfully ignorant. [...] Every topic about this is filled with the same fundamental refusal to understand.
Again, I don't think it's about game design. He made a claim--that no amount of money can match the performance of the PS5's SSD on PC--that is not true. That's literally all it's about. It doesn't matter what he meant to say or what he should have said or how he should have clarified the implications. It's about what was said and that it's incorrect.

I am curious, though. This thing is supposed to push 9GB/s compressed, 5.5GB/s raw data. Isn't that a bit like saying that if I compress some data to a third its original size and then transfer it to an SSD at 5GB/s (throughput you can achieve with a single drive, btw), that the compressed data rate is 15GB/s? Maybe I'm misunderstanding the metrics, but that seems really disingenuous, not to mention far less impressive than a drive that has raw throughput of 9GB/s.
