Fits into my expectations (check my replies on here for previous ACO news), I'm glad to be vindicated. There was definitely something wrong.
Surely you are not claiming rumor as vindication.

The drifting women story keeps getting weirder. They also had a sat phone but dropped it in the water. Yeah right.

Is this a social media publicity stunt, a book writing deal or a movie rights funding scam.

Not beating a dead horse because this horse ain't dead, yet.
In this video Jennifer Appel says "Had they not been able to locate us we would have been dead in 24 hours."
Whereas the Follow-Up link blue posted has this: We asked why during this course of time did they not activate the EPIRB. She had stated they never felt like they were truly in distress, like in a 24-hour period they were going to die, said Coast Guard spokeswoman Petty Officer 2nd Class Tara Molle, who was on the call to the AP with Carr.
Ignoring the "storm they encountered", obvious health of the women and 2 dogs including lack of weight loss, this story doe not jibe in my book. But I could be wrong.

Creston, what exactly is giving out on your speakers? I'm just asking because I have a pair of Dahlquist speakers from the early 80's that finally had the foam that supports the outside of the cones start to fall apart so I bought a re-coning kit from these guys...

https://www.simplyspeakers.com/speaker-recone-kits.html

... and was able to fix them up as good as new for $31.
From what I have read about the Klipsch 4.1/5.1 Promedia it appears the failure is in the electronics/amp section.

Thanks for the speaker repair link, bookmarked it. Here is something else to keep in mind https://www.parts-express.com/cat/hi-fi-woofers-subwoofers-midranges-tweeters/13

Nothing has come out yet to make me think the GOP will impeach Trump, not even close.
There's nothing to impeach him for yet.
Nope. Enormous amounts of smoke, and maybe a dozen things that are 20% good enough, but nothing has surfaced (or clearly looks to surface imminently) that is good enough.
Okay, first I thought I said nothing had come out which would get him impeached. Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that's what I said.

Second, impeachment is a political process not a legal one. Hence it suffers all the problems any political process does.

Third, unless I misread your "tone" (certainly possible) you'll disagree when I say IMHO, Trump has already committed impeachable offenses. I believe he attempted to obstruct justice when he fired Comey. That said, even if every single GOP member of Congress agreed with me on that, they still would not impeach him.

I think we were all agreeing with you, apologies if it came across like Verno was disagreeing and I was then doubling down with him.

And I'd wager, with Trump, it's not about what he'll do but if and when we find out, so yeah, I do agree with you. There was just a mismatch of us agreeing and realizing it.
In the vernacular that is referred to as ya'll being in violent agreement with one another.

I think Keyser Sze's apology and the fact that he got outed are no reason to cancel the show. But netflix has more shows waiting in the wings.


I heard the most recent season wasn't very good (I'm still on S2). So maybe this is just the straw that broke the coal mine.

On the other hand, we won't be getting any stories about how Spacey grabbed Robin Wright's breasts or forced Kate Mara to give him a BJ.
I guess there is an upside to every story.

According to an editor of The Hollywood Reporter, the decision was apparently made months ago to cancel after this next season. So while I'm sure Spacey's misconduct coming to light prompted the announcement coming when it did, it probably didn't have anything to do with the underlying decision.

The series has kind of run its course anyway. They've done just about everything.
You're correct, the show was scheduled to be canceled before this came out. Since I have only seen a couple of episodes I won't miss it.
Looks like Netflix is considering a House of Cards spinoff. Can't wait for the Kevin Spacey walk-on.

PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS
the end is nigh for this flash in the pan game /s

I wonder if you combined all the Ass Creed versions, if PUBG would still be #1. Probably would.

Has yet to be released on consoles.....insane.

Has yet to even be released in its final form. We all know the "successful" track record for early access games.

The game is pretty much done. Just fine tuning and setting up monetization.
You know that, I know that, everyone knows that.
It seems after you put a grand in one unfinshed game and throw away money at a lot of other failed KS ventures you no longer use critical thinking.

Because Bill Gates donates insane amounts of money to charities, or invests them in technologies or foundations that can help people.

I used to hate Bill, but after he donated his fortune, I changed my mind. He's one of the great true philanthropists of our day.

I am not sure about Bill and Melinda Gates, but a lot of billionaires and millionaires use their foundations for tax evasion and to overturn politics they don't like. Like e.g. George Soros is giving money to organizations that follow his intentions no matter what the US or the country he is trying to influence is thinking about it. So there is always two sides to the story about foundations and charity.
That's true for many like Soros, Kochs, Adelson, etc. I've never heard of Gates or Buffett using their money that way.

Yeah, unlike the names you mentioned, he isn't trying to use his money to influence politics in a way no non-billionaire ever could.

Soros and the Kochs are bad, but for some reason Adelson makes my skin crawl above all others.
Let's not forget the tRump Foundation which was proven to be a scam.
The proof was found in his tax returns, oh wait.

Or pull your head out of your ass and realize that https://www.pcgamesn.com/eve-valkyrie/ccp-vr-development reported that number.
You never ever RTFA, so no surprise there.

And following the other link that blue provided, if you use google translate you get,
"The company affects about 100 employees of the company by more than 370, of which about 30 in Iceland. However, their components will be offered to move between offices. CCP employees were notified of the changes today."

What happened today proves that this administration and it's enablers are in big trouble.

These indictments are just the beginning. As his associates are rounded up I expect tRump will continue attacking Mueller, Muslims, Gold Star Families, Hillary, fellow republicans, members of congress, freedom of the press and President Obama.

He passed the threshold for impeachment long ago, time to make the popcorn.

ROFL. I stopped counting the times I chatted something up with one of my contacts on FB only to be bombarded minutes later with ads and posts on the very topic we were discussing.

CALLING BULLSHIT

The article was about LISTENING using your phones microphone and not about the text you enter.
If anyone is stupid enough to communicate through a keyboard on any of fakebooks products, well it says right there in the TOS that they own your written words, you should not be surprised to see ads etc...
