I oppose the death penalty, but man that guy sure makes it hard for me to defend that position.
Yeah, the death penalty is definitely something I have mixed feelings on. Intellectually, I think life without the possibility of parole makes more sense. But some crimes are just so heinous death seems more appropriate. There is such a thing as evil people.

There absolutely is, but because the death penalty is imposed under both a racial and a class bias, if you are poor or black you are much more likely to die than someone who doesn't have to depend on an overworked public defender to save their life. This guy absolutely deserves to die for what he did, but not at the cost of executing others who may well be innocent.

Black men also die in auto accidents and of heart disease, but I'd think most people realize those are separate issues that are focused on differently, with different solutions, and are different levels of avoidable.


If there is one disease that is killing say, 20-30 black people a year, and another that is killing them by the thousands and you focus all your attention on the first one and ignore the second, there is something wrong with you, and no, you don't get off just by calling it a "separate issue" based entirely on the color or profession of the person pulling the trigger. The homicide rate in black communities all over the U.S. has absolutely skyrocketed, but because the media doesn't play video of those murders 24/7 no one outside of the people in those communities who suffer the most, seems to care--certainly not white liberals. These killings get a tiny fraction of the coverage police shootings get, if that, and those who pay the price are left to mourn alone and ignored. You think the mother of that murdered child gives a shit if he was shot by a civilian instead of a cop? You think that makes it any easier for her? You think she will mourn any less? The fuck she will. You pay attention to the much smaller pool of victims as opposed to the far larger one, for ideological reasons and ideological reasons alone.

Do you get paid for every strawman you post?
Do you intentionally misunderstand arguments, or simply misconstrue them despite understanding them well?

It is a strawman, but what isn't a strawman is the fact BLM and the media focus all their attention on the comparatively miniscule number of unarmed black men killed by the police, and ignore far more common tragedies like this, with an annual death toll orders of magnitude higher, often including children. This shooting might make the national media or it may not, but either way it will be gone in a day and completely forgotten, apart from those who loved the victims and will mourn them for the rest of their lives. BLM gets millions, and these people get nothing.

We're a little disappointed this is not titled What Had Happened Was, but we'll get over it.



Is this a reference to the Tom Noonan film? Saw it years ago at a screening--with a date, which probably wasn't the best idea--and really liked it.

The Creative Sound BlasterX "review" reads more like a press release/Amazon advertising lure. A lot of filler like:

Packaging of the H6 is extremely vivid as Creative kept no details from its consumers. From both sides of the packaging, you can get a clear understanding of what you are about to buy without opening the box.

That art style is just heinous. A more accurate title would be something like Hentai Dungeon.

Great, great game. Had the multiple CDs myself. They did a really good job at capturing much of the atmosphere of the movie as someone said. I love the little touches, like being able to step onto your apartment balcony and watch the flying cars go by. The sound was really well done too. I can't remember if the Voight-Kampff test you can administer was actually functional or if the outcome was just predetermined. Still cool though. Only thing that bothered me was that the Harrison Ford knock-off character's trench coat was way too short. Like only down to his knees. The one Ford wore in the movie was much longer and looked much cooler. But I suppose nothing is perfect in this life and I will just have to let it go. Someday.

Physical therapy is the only thing that worked for me. My doctor gave me a set of basic stretches and after I did them every day for a week or two, I got better, and this was after I'd been essentially paralyzed from the pain. The trick is, to remember to do them even after you've recovered, because I get lazy and stop and then sooner or later the damn thing comes back again.

"Going Porcelain" is ... a very odd name. But I'm not sure "Broken Porcelain" is all that better. What exactly is it supposed to convey?

Is there any other liberal rag worse than Polygon? Jesus, their bullshit is physically nauseating.

What line in the article did you find so offensive?


I can't answer for Cutter, but I'm pretty far left and I find a TON of shit about Polygon offensive. Like this for instance:


https://www.polygon.com/2018/10/23/18015434/gog-twitter-wontbeerased-hashtag

This article is about a "transphobic" comment GOG tweeted.

Transphobic, you say? Gosh, that sounds pretty hateful. Wonder what "transphobic" thing GOG tweeted?

Are you ready? Are you ready for the hateful thing they said? (Trigger warning for sensitive readers: you might not want to read past this point).

GOG tweeted:

“Classic PC Games #WontBeErased on our watch. Yeah, how’s that for some use of hashtags.”

In other words, they took a twitter hashtag that was being used to criticize some Trump administration policies against trans people, and used it to describe their own attempts to keep classic games around.

There's no fucking hate or fear in that tweet, period.

The fact that Polygon is routinely willing to accuse others of being phobic or hateful when they clearly doing no such thing, is reason enough to avoid reading anything in Polygon.

This actually seems to capture some of the essence of what made the original movie so scary. Also does a really good job of demonstrating how scary a wooded environment can seem. On my radar now.

The problem with ALL Lego games is that no matter the source material, the gameplay is all pretty much the same.

That depends. Can something that is already dead ... die again?

It's a philosophical question.

So they won't use wikileaks material if some pops up? Doubtful...

Also a nice example of genetic logical fallacy. It's not about the source or how it was obtained, it's about the content and whether the content is accurate or not.

Wikileaks has been acting as an extension of Russian intelligence for years now. ALL of their "leaks" during the Clinton/Trump election were favorable to the Republicans and negative to the Democrats across the board. They were also selectively edited to put the DNC, etc, in the worst possible light.

It is against U.S. law for a candidate to accept material help from a foreign country during an election. What the Trump campaign did was illegal and they're only getting off on the technicality that the relevant laws say they have to know it was illegal.

Whatever they said they knew at the time, they HAVE to know now. By refusing not to accept help from the Russians again, the Trump administration is refusing to follow the law ... not that that's unusual for them.

B-b-but her emails ...!

This is one of the rare cases when a hyped game goes south on launch, collects a lot of hate, and yet still somehow manages to right the ship and weather the storm and come out sailing (relatively) smoothly in the end. Good on them for sticking with it.
