The ends justify the means... Humanity, it seems, is still ignoring a part of reality in order to build some kind of illusion.

What, when, where, who, how and why. Ignore one for the sake of any other(s) and you're running after self-delusion and eventual unavoidable failure.

One can't ignore a part of reality, its impossible. When will we learn and adapt?

Maybe Trumperica will do just what democratic countries like Russia and Turkey did: imprison all critical journalists, close every newspaper or tv station that will not follow the government's guidelines, and suddenly there is only one truth and that is forged by the regime government. After all, Putin and The Donald are best friends forever, right? Why not do what his friend did?

Sure... just forget about Abby Martin who was hosting Breaking the Set on Russia Today and who condemned the Russians actions in Crimea/Ukraine. Probably one of the most critical investigative journalist left on the whole world right now. And what did she get for her "insubordination" from RT? Congratulations and the support of the Russian Gov... That's right.

Now remember what happened to the journalists ( Phil Donahue and another one I forgot ) in the US that critized the Irak War? Did they have the support of their employer and the US gov? Nope, they were laid off and lynched in the mainstream media as well as by the public with the US gov not lifting a single finger to help.

Reality check = done.

Relevant more than ever:

Democracy VS Epistocracy

Democracy, the belief that someone's ignorance is just as relevant as someone else's knowledge and that what is, majority-wise, held as right, is right. Appeal to the masses logical fallacy much.

In the current context of widespread idiocracy, democracy is a grotesque farce.

Good, "climate change" alarmism is more politics than actual science. I also look forward to pulling out of the paris treaty.

Reality check

I wouldn't sweat if I was her, there has been a review of the law when it passed, it has no teeth at all. All they can do is pester you with notices and pray that you shit your pants and submit, more or less.

What he said... I used to sit at 1 feet and a half from my monitor ( and closer when leaning in ), so that 21.5 inch @ 4k is at optimal visual acuity distance with these specs according to this calculator: https://stari.co/tv-monitor-viewing-distance-calculator

Same for the 5k 27 inch panel @ 5k.

Right now I sit @ 2 feet ( closer when leaning in ), so optimal would be 4k @ 29 to 32 inch.

"The Ideal Viewing Distance based on Visual Acuity. This distance is calculated based on the reference resolving power of the eyes. The human eye with 20/20 vision can detect or resolve details as small as 1/60th of a degree of arc. This distance represents the point beyond which some details in the picture are no longer able to be resolved, so pixels begin to blend together. Closer to the screen than this may result in the need for higher resolution display. This value should be lowered if visual acuity is worst then 20/20, raised if visual acuity is better."

PS4 Pro Has Extra 1GB of RAM.
Welcome, console players, welcome to the hardware upgrade race
I thought developers were not allowed to release games exclusive to the pro version but let's not kid ourselves,
original PS4 owners will be second-class citizens.

Find the answer to that question: What's the average difference in VRAM usage between a game running @ 1080p and the same game running circa 4k ( 1800p it seems for PS4 Pro most titles )?

Could it be 1 gig? WHO WOULD'VE THOUGHT?! Rolleyes

Clearly the problem here is TOO MUCH GOVERNMENT REGULATION. We need to relieve these corporations of the onerous burden of regulatory compliance so the money they're wasting on that can be put to better use manufacturing more responsible designs.

Did I get that right?

No

I wonder if there is a recycling plan for those million tons of resources wasted in making the Note 7

LOLL, its the least of their concerns. The battery is at fault it seems from what I gathered. The pouch is glued to the phone. Old replaceable batteries were much easier to not only recover, but also recycle. The pouch types are too fragile and burst into flames at the slightest manipulation error.

Quote: "The CEO of a large recycling company recently told me dismantlers deal with battery fires about once a week. Just last year, a facility in Pennsylvania burned for two days. It was the facilities third major fire in four years. This isn’t a problem with irresponsible recyclers. It is a problem with irresponsible manufacturers. Chasing slimmer phones and higher profits, manufacturers keep gluing tiny incendiary devices into their devices."

All of this could have easily been avoided and/or easily fixed had the battery been replaceable. All smartphone makers using non-replaceable batteries are playing with fire, litteraly.

Lol @ Clinton being forgainst Net Neutrality.

Add that to the list of:

-Forgainst fracking.
-Forgainst big "whatever corps".
-Forgainst NAFTA/DOMA/TPP/TTIP etc.
-Forgainst repealing glass steagal.
-Forgainst citizens united.

And the least goes on and on.

Shit I wouldn't want to be in your shoes southern neighbors. On one hand you have that idiot clown fart Trump, on the other you have that lying duplicitous and possibly criminal Clinton who is for something when it suits her interests when talking to one group and then against it when its suits her interests when talking to another group and vice versa.

I was expecting at least 1 comment about third parties... but no, not even an allusion. So I guess it means that stupidity ( Trump ) as well as corruption ( Clinton ) will be normalized. At this rate the next candidates will be able to display both and the US citizens will still vote for them, mostly ignoring the third parties.

Shit, you guys really deserve that idiocracy thing going on lately.

Camacho for prez bitches, or heck Vermin Supreme, ponies for everyone!
