Fake news sharing in US is a rightwing thing
The tRump group of supporters consumed the highest volume of junk news and spread more junk news sources, than all the other groups put together. This pattern is repeated on Facebook Bluesnews, where the Hard Conservatives group spread the highest proportion of junk news.

FBI's new slogan. If you see something, say something so we can do nothing.

The other slogan could have been... "See something, say something and we'll detain people without cause or due process, trust us."

The family he was living with say they had no idea he was so unstable, maybe things could have turned out differently if they were at least made aware of the situation.

Do you think Trump was correct when he claimed to have more people at his inauguration than Obama?

If you count the Russian troll bots, then yes he had way more watching the inauguration.

Beep Boop!

Are they invisible?

Which one are you adamant has more people?

Considering that only 4% of DC supported Trump it's amazing anyone showed up.

You seem to be really hung up on numbers so why don't you count them and let me know what you come up with.

i finally pulled the trigger on the hardware for a system rebuild on my game machine after going without for about half a year, i7-8700k and related accouterments. i was really hoping buttcoins would keep tumbling, video card prices were creeping back to sane for about 2 or 3 days there when the price was at 6000 (1060 6gbs were going for 320 NIB on ebay, now they're back up to like 500 bucks.) guess i'm going to have to keep making do with my GTX 770.

i guess it doesn't matter, the game i'm really jonesing to fire up is half-life 1.

not sure if i can blame ram prices on the fucking brain-damaged crypto jackasses or just out and out collusion between the manufacturers (but it's the invisible hand of the free market! so it's ok), or both, but 16gb of DDR4 was like 2/3s the cost of the fucking processor. in 20 years i've literally never seen a worse time to build a pc. unless you literally do not have a choice, don't.

Ram and GPU are the worst purchases you can make right now unless you *desperately* need them.

Give Black Mesa a whirl if you haven't, a 770 should handle that perfectly fine.
It's even on sale http://store.steampowered.com/app/362890/Black_Mesa/
And it might even get xen this year (wink)

The Hot Deals thread in the hardforum occasionally gets links for a batch of decently priced ("for the times") gpu's.
https://hardforum.com/forums/h-ot-deals.28/

If you're a wheeler and dealer you can find deals on pre-built gaming computers that have the the gpu you want and then part out the rest. But doing all of that just sounds like a hassle.

In 365 days, President dRumpf has made 2,140 false or misleading claims.

So I believe everything he says.

The orange twitter troll also has such a good understanding of the FBI he thinks they failed on doing anything about the Florida school shooter because they were chasing the fake Russian leads, which have now been proven to be true.
But no collusion.

How to have good results with crowdfunding:
- Don't back projects by people that have never shipped a game before (or haven't shipped one in over a decade).
- Understand how much games actually cost to develop (hint: they're really, really expensive).
- If you back something because of nostalgia, recognize that what you loved so long ago may not quite hold up anymore.
- Don't pledge more than $30. Those higher tier rewards might look enticing but if the project fails, you won't get anything at all. The riskier the project, the less you should pledge.
- Realize that the release date estimates are almost guaranteed to be wrong and development will take an additional 1-3 years.
- Don't get too attached to specific features or content described in the initial pitch. Game development is an iterative process and features/content will inevitably be changed or cut.
These are all common sense rules.
Thanks for listing them, hopefully it will help those that have zero self-control and don't understand game development or human nature.

they arent triple AAA games but that isnt the point of humble bundle is it?

WHAT?! Believe - don't question, BELIEVE!!!

Humble Bundle will use your computer for bitcoin mining, voting for Trump, posting anti #MeToo comments, and stealing your Amazon count. Do not ask questions, is it too much to ask for a little bit of trust in what we are saying! BELIEVE!
Not only that but they will secretly delay your Amazon Prime 2-day shipments by an additional day. Cause your pets to have accidents on the carpet. Make your milk sour 3 days before the expiration date. And cause the neighbors to still keep their tRump/Pence sign in their yard even a year later.
Humble Bundle has that much power, it's scary.

The willfull ignorance of the modern conservative is the most dangerous threat to America. They would rather keep the Russian spies, and get rid of the FBI, these people,the Republican voter, are going to destroy us,with the power,of ignorance.

(none of this is meant at you personally)

Then at the next election, fucking VOTE THEM OUT.

I live in the middle of a red state, there's nothing I can do about it, but all these whiny democrats who lament the state of the US right now were the same assholes who wrote all these fancy-ass blogs about how they weren't going to bother voting or would vote for Jill Stein or blablabla.

STOP FUCKING POSTING ON THE INTERNET AND FUCKING DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. If every liberal actually bothered to get off his ass and vote, there is no way the morons who think Trump is great could ever get a majority.

I really don't know what to do about red states. These people continually vote against their interests. I live in a blue state, and work on local campaigns. Our state house is controlled by Dems and our gov, reps, and senators are all dems. Our healthcare and happiness ranks are among the top in the nation. There's low unemployment and statewide, incomes inequality is flatter than the national average. There are still problems, and scandals, but overall things are good and government works for the people.

The problem is the red state voters are easily misled by Fox Entertainment, false Facebook news stories and insane right-wing conspiracy sites. However, the *real* problem is the Electoral College then gives these low-information voters tremendous voting power that outstrips that state's worth to the country. Wyoming has only 500K citizens, yet gets 3 Electoral College votes. California has 40 million citizens yet gets 55 EC votes. That means each vote in Wyoming is worth much more than each vote in California. Meanwhile, educated progressives tire of living in these crap states that are run into the ground by Republican leaders (see: Kentucky for one example) and decide to move to more advanced progressive states. Which *worsens* the voter representation problem!

Dee-erp.

Donni was installed by the quirks of the antiquated Electoral College.

The EC, enacted as a concession to lower-population slave states allowed to count slaves as three-fifths of a citizen, even though they couldn't vote.

It violates the "one man, one vote" principle valuing Wyoming Voters 3.6 times more than California voters.

It was also designed as a firewall against an unstable demagogue. Alexander Hamilton hoped that electors would prevent a President "with talents for low intrigue, and the little arts of popularity," a man "not in an eminent degree endowed with the requisite qualifications, or one who allowed "foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils" - in other words, a man exactly like the dotard.

Ironically, the Electoral College backfired in 2016.

As the budget grew, we began a long series of conversations with potential publishing partners.

So they thought they could pull a Chris Roberts here. Jesus Christ, this isn't rocket surgery.
That's literally the exact opposite of what happened with Star Citizen. Chris Roberts had investors lined up and the Kickstarter was to demonstrate interest in the game. When the funding overperformed they dropped all other investors and went entirely community funded.

With the System Shock remake they surpassed their target and then decided to change from a remaster to a a new game, then shackled themselves to a publisher because they didn't have enough funds for that. That's pretty sleazy.
It's clearly Unity's fault.

poor, poor Hillaryrigged the primaries so she was the chosen one.spent 1.2 billion dollars on her campaign.had to cheat at the debate with Trump by being given the questions in advance.full undying support from the mainstream news media, all the "celebrity" talk show hosts fawning over her.taken down by 13 Russian trolls.and a frog named Pepe.

I'm not sure about the primaries being rigged. Hillary was a Democratic candidate and the Democrats pushed her. Bernie is an independent who tried to run on the Dem ticket and they gave him zero support.

As for cheating at the debate: if Hillary had a few questions provided to her at one debate, it would have made no difference. Trump obviously had no idea what he was talking about. The man does not even understand the basics of how our government works, much less complex issues like foreign policy or world economics. It was painfully obvious he was way out of his league. The man did not even know what the Nuclear Triad is for cripe's sake. Hillary has ten times the experience and knowledge than Trump, on every single issue they could have brought up. The man is a blundering idiot who conned half the nation into voting for him by pandering to their base desires. Now that he's in office, aside from immigration and attacking anyone brown, he's done the complete opposite of everything he promised during the campaign.

So why did Hillary lose? Because she's a smug, supremely unlikeable candidate. Trump absolutely did have the help of Russian agents who flooded our social media with propaganda. And it did have an effect on people. Something like 60% of people get their news only from Facebook. If they are constantly flooded with false stories, it's going to have an impact. Hillary also suffered from the FBI dredging up the old email issue again, which turned out to be nothing...again. Hillary also miscalculated several states. It all added up to a very close race where Trump barely edged her out in EC votes, while losing by millions of votes in the popular vote.

And now that he's in office, his true colors are flying. He's done nothing for healthcare (he promised every single person would have affordable healthcare, instead, his actions have destabilized the markets further). The Republican healthcare plan was anything but. It would have removed healthcare for dozens of millions of Americans, while making it unaffordable for many more. That is not what Trump promised, but he supported it.

Trump said he was going to take Wall Street to task and hold them accountable. Instead, he deregulated them and lowered their taxes.

Same goes for Big Pharma. He was going to lower the cost of medicine and rein in Big Pharma. He did the opposite.

He was going to follow an isolationist policy and stop wasting so much on the military and foreign wars. Instead, we are increasing the military spending.

Well, you can see, the list goes on and on. The only issues he's stuck to is attacking anyone with brown skin and blaming all of the nation's problems on them, and the halfwits believe it. Trump and plutocrats like him are the causes of our woes, not the poor people and a few immigrants.
That's 2 posts in a row that nailed it. You can take the rest of the week off.

You should probably read what it actually says, but that might be a bit hard for you so: The claim was, russians colluded to elect Trump. The case shows that isn't the case. It in fact shows that they ran campaigns to bolster BLM, Clinton, Stein, a couple of others. They ran a campaign to bolster Trump. So sorry, the collusion story goes right out the window. Collusion means they worked *directly* with an official in an official capacity to do something. But here's the kicker, they created fake US drivers licenses(and stole ID) to vote in US elections, and wanna guess which party they registered under? It's in the indictment.

Man would you look at that. I guess you *do* need voter ID laws, on top of that it looks like you also need to start deporting all those illegals. After all, if 13 russians supposedly influenced an election(starting back in 2014), what's with those 12 million+ illegals?
We are so glad you're back, did 4chan kick you out?
Now about that Nunes memo you were so fond of that was going to prove pizzagate (or whatever bizarro conspiracy theory you will fall for next), how's that going for ya kiddo.
