"reports" are not official. The fires will be immense if Trump pulls out his legal challenges. Glad I am safely in a red state now.

- voting for Trump is playing with real fire this time.

Cannot wait to see what Trump does without the need to be re-elected. But, he has a need to be loved too much to do much too crazy.

My mail ballot was received and accepted by the board of elections on 10-17. The fact that anyone feels compelled to physically go to the polls during a global pandemic because of some ludicrous mistrust in the USPS is one of the surest signs of how low this country has fallen.

Despite the intentional sabotage of the mail system, it's not the USPS I distrust.

pretty sure someone said this was a bad idea.... lol

Cannot be an informed voter if you are missing some information.

If by this point you think there's insufficient information to make a decision, I'm not sure that waiting until November 3rd is going to help. Indeed, if you believe waiting until election day to vote will not negatively impact your ability to easily cast a ballot that will be counted, then I don't think you're only missing information about the candidates.

Waiting for a second (or third) debate is important information. Watching 1 candidate call "lids" at 9:30 am every morning for a month leading up to an election is important information. If this guy cannot face stressors till noon, how will he run a country for 4-8 years? Or a sudden crisis? Watching how the media acts leading up till an election is important information. no one is allowed to ask questions of Biden (of which there are many just on policy alone), and no one even questions that. I know nothing about him beyond his webpage (since he has flipped or flopped on everything he has ever done)... and all that tells me is that my taxes are going up, he wants a check from me for $6400 sometime soon, and gas will be $4 again. no thanks. All this is IF he lives or isn't 25th amendmented in the first few weeks. President Harris... oh god no.

All the dems had to do was field 1 competent candidate. They failed. At least with trump my 401K will do well and maybe a war will end.
The democratic party has an internal reckoning coming. It will not be good.

RE: Pizza
Those Mellow Mushroom slices are huge though. This is poorly done study when it is by slice when some chains cut larges in to 6 or 8 slices. Mmmm Mellow Mushroom pizza though..

RE: voting bullshit
Look, if you can't be there near election day, I understand early or absentee voting. But there is no reason to vote 3-6 weeks early. That's just stupid. These are old men this time. what if one has a heart attack. You just voted for a dead guy and most states do not allow you to change your vote. Voting 5-7 days in person or 1-2 weeks by mail early is plenty. I personally always try to vote in person or drop box day of or maybe 1 day early. Cannot be an informed voter if you are missing some information.

See stories about the "change my vote spike"

both Biden and Trump released updated judge list in the last 2 weeks or so.

yes, but we are still waiting for a "Game Devs of no Color Expo" aren't we?

Racism - prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against a person or people on the basis of their membership of a particular racial or ethnic group, typically one that is a minority or marginalized.

everyone but whites is racist. but I will be assuming they will alloy white Devs in this expo.

"Star Wars game that will come to PC and consoles"

it will be on rails, but shitty.... why is it so hard to get another Xwing or Tie fighter or Xwing vs Tie fighter...

Hopefully not! But I guess it will be in a sort of box with invisible walls (a bit like Rogue Squadron back in the day). I just hope for great missions, amazing dogfights, support for flightsticks, and a well done and long SINGLE-PLAYER CAMPAIGN and not the usual multiplayer only deathmatch BS.

And I'm with jdreyer: PCVR! Some VR-flying like in Elite: Dangerous or No Man's Sky and I would be sold and would even pre-order.


never, EVER preorder an EA game. have you not learned by now?

I guess Humble didn't get the message.

Why do white people so blatantly coopt and abuse MLK quotes?
He, above all, knew that we're not a colorblind nation and anyone saying "I don't see color" is actually saying "the status quo is just fine."


there we have it. judging people on their actions and not their race is now racist. I give no more fucks.

as someone who wishes they would go back to the huge squad style of the Xcom of the 90s and not this arcade mess, this moves in the WRONG direction for me. If you want a good game for $10 in the old Xcom style, check out https://store.steampowered.com/app/37030/UFO_Extraterrestrials_Gold/ as a remake of the orgional UFO defense.

The US Military Is Getting Serious About Laser Weapons.

It's a shame the lasers are all in the invisible spectrum, because war won't look anywhere near as cool as in the sci-fi movies.

But having your squad mates spontaneously combust from an invisible laser beam will be a hell of a kick to morale.


Digital cameras can pick up outside the vis spectrum (IR). Maybe the movies show the lasers cause the camera picks them up, but they are not really there.

having lived in a state that does not change with daylight savings, it is stupid annoying. to remember when your tv programs are, or which time zone you are in when calling others, what time the 1pm football game is... just awful.

this is not a defense of either method, just that it needs to be country wide or not at all.

of course this it true of a lot of things....
