I do love the right's total lack of a sense of irony though.
Such as modern history's biggest liar start a media site called "truth".

It’s hilarious that the taliban has a huge presence on Twitter and 45 don’t got shit.
Oddly enough, the Taliban is less toxic and follows the rules.
Honestly, I consider the modern GOP to be far more dangerous to America than any foreign terrorist organization. A terrorist might kill a few people, perhaps a few thousand on a good day. Donald Trump himself killed 200,000 Americans, and the GOP's policies would kill millions (which doesn't even get into their attacks on our democracy by calling elections fraudulent).

The wife thinks I'm overreacting but I firmly believe America's in a precarious state--we could easily see the death of what little democracy we have. Although we at least agree that the GQP and right wing media are largely to blame.

Well as we get older we should definitely be more careful, I hate that the body becomes more frail as we age, but it beats the alternative. :-)

Mrs. Tiger is getting over her covid, it hit her hard but we're all vaccinated. Daughter and myself came up negative. After seeing how it wiped out the Mrs, I can only imagine what might have happened if we hadn't been vaccinated.

I'm not a fan of cryptocurrency or NFTs, but I see no problem with allowing those things to fail on their own (or perhaps, even find a long term nitch; though I remain skeptical that they will survive another 10 years). I don't think it should be up to a store front to dictate what technology should be used to manage transactions within a game ecosystem.

I essentially agree. Not a fan of NFT/block chain myself but so long as it's legal and clearly labeled, let it sink or swim on its own merits.

Ad-blocker actually delivers ads, say security researchers.
There's no reason for anyone to use anything other than uBlock Origin for their browser ad-block plugin.
I continue to be amazed the internet ad business model works. I don't specifically recall when I first installed an adblocker, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't long after they were invented in the early 2000s. This is especially true for the YouTube model. All those YTers making their millions off ads, yet I have watched thousands of hours of YouTube and the only ads I have seen are the one done by the YTers as part of their video, which I 15 second skip through. It is just weird to me...

For years I never blocked ads. I figured it paid for content so I could deal with it. The last few years though I have switched and become a big ad killer. The reason is pretty simple why though. Modern ads slow down sites with their multiple queries and scripts. It shouldn't take any time at all for a mostly text site to load on broadband and yet it's sometimes slower than when I had a 56k modem. The pop ups, the pop unders, the seizure inducing flashes, etc. I can respect sites that use ads but if the ads annoy, they get banned. And I super hate the ads that auto play audio and or video. Thankfully most modern browsers you can disable that ####.

Beat the game on the super NES. Cute game but not really difficult. Like any platformer it doesn't offer much in replayability but it does have charming graphics.

I didnt miss facebook at all when it went down for 6 hours the other day/week. My coworker was all like 'how will the internet go on' (and I think he was being serious). I'm like, through email, im, discord, irc, another of the approximately six thousand other social media networks out there. Facebook is convenient, that's it. It's not even particularly good, but it's convenient.

The day before looks like it'll be well done. Great looking graphics. Great trailer (the music was so unexpected but works). Not the slight bit interested (YAZG). I would like to see something other than another zombie game. I can't even get excited over back 4 blood. I would like to see an FPS with a myriad of enemy types--like a doom, duke nukem or halo treatment.

I was going to buy D2R but I couldnt quite bring myself to do it after they killed direct tcp/ip. I know they have an obsession over controlling duping and hacks but if people want to do that in a private game who cares? Ladder play always required battle.net. Anyway old D2 is pretty fugly but is still fun to play.

Dune releases in theatres in 7 weeks. Should they just push it to 2022?

Nope. Streaming is the new reality for most people and one they have come to not just accept but embrace.

The zenith of theatres has been passed and now it's just a slow decline to its nadir.

The companies who profit in the future will realize this and pivot, the companies that will go out of business will not and continue beating a dead horse.

You can have mouthbreathing yokels who says "It's just like the flu" while they shove horse dewormer up their ass. It doesn't change the fact that humans are facing another mass extinction event. Social and economic factors have been permanently changed. The forthcoming climate changes that are increasing in frequency and disruption will change them further.

Streaming theatrical releases is why I got HBO Max. I hate it when people get on their cell phones or talk during a movie. This way, if anyone needs to do anything we can pause the movie, get it out of the way, and then resume the experience. I love love love streaming theatrical releases. I don't wish extinction on theaters, but people are by and large just too rude and inconsiderate.

The most dangerous pre-existing condition is stupidity.
Vax doubters think Covid is only hard on the weak, infirm and dumb (really!), who do not deserve to live anyway.

It's all part of the plan. The less educated you are, the more likely you are to vote Republican.

Definitely seems true.

It's a bummer that New Zealand doesn't have the awesomesauce 2nd Amendment. Here in texas they recently made it illegal not to carry a gun or some such craziness.

I thought it was permitless carry.

That and the Texas abortion law, it sure seems Texas has a weird definition of freedom. Between permitless carry, stand your ground, and drive through liquor stores, Texas is just a mess of extremes. You wouldn't be too far off to say guns were mandatory.

Florida Judge Throws Out Gov. Ron DeathSantis' Order Prohibiting Masks In Schools
A Floriduh judge has ruled that school districts in the state can require students to wear masks.
At least 10 school districts — including some in many of the largest cities — had been defying state rules set by Gov. Ron DuhSantis banning mask mandates.

Well some schools just made it part of the dress code, so at least obeying the letter of the law, and not the spirit.

And thus the golden era of video gaming ended. No longer were new games created, simply old ones remade...

However, all remakes can be purchased with a collector's edition, season pass, all access perma stuck in Alpha (cause why would you ever finish a game when people pay to play alpha's & beta's?) development with a new skin for your BFG9069...if you PRE-ORDER NOW!

Well, even at the time, people essentially treated it as Doom3. New, but not entirely new.

I've been hearing online the CIA predicted months for the government to fall. But we're seeing it fall in weeks, maybe days.
While your sourcing in this particular case isn't stellar, I previously suggested there might have been national security people who thought this would happen and that they had even been allowed to give their opinion to whose in power. It really does seem a bit obvious in 20/20 hindsight and it is difficult to think it was totally missed. There were also likely opposing opinions, there usually are.

Nothing to source here. My "evidence" is just stuff I've read from randos online (ie, hearsay).

Frankly I don't see why anyone is surprised about what's going on in Afghanistan. I can only conclude that it's just disingenuous partisan finger pointing and even more disingenuous "I told you so" from warmongering Bushites, because this ending has been in the works for 20 years. It would have gone down exactly the same under any of the previous administrations, as well. Maybe even worse under Trump simply because he would probably have put Jared Kushner in charge of it.

The Afghan military had hardware, it had training. All of which came at great cost to the US. They simply decided not to fight. You can't force them to care about their own country or to value democracy or any of that shit. This is why foreign intervention is a mistake 9 times out of 10. Quite frankly if people can't keep control of their own country, then it isn't THEIR country and they don't deserve it. The Taliban cared more, and wanted it more, and just had to walk through the door. Barely a shot fired.

If anyone can give me a suggestion as to how the US could have done things differently and compelled the Afghan military to DO THEIR FUCKING JOB, I'm all ears. As far as I can see, the only alternative was to stay there forever.
Ah the kush, he'd have been an excellent one.👎

Here's a word for word quote from 45's National Security Advisor when asked what the twice impeached golfer would do about Afghanistan.

John Bolton: "Well, I don't think he thought coherently about it, and I think if he had been reelected, he would have done essentially the same thing Biden did. Mike Pompeo, who joins in the responsibility for this policy, has tried to distinguish it, but in fact, Trump wanted out. He was going to get out. He didn't care whether the conditions that were included in the peace deal were met. Had he been reelected, I think he would have done the same thing Biden did."

But it would've been great 👍... Yuge even ... because.... reasons?
