Hard pass on that one, It became obvious when it was hit by a TOW that there was phosphor inside the bone marrow. I have no earthly idea why or how this came to be.

Double posts are awesome, they're a quick way to pad your post count and much easier than coming up with new things to talk about.

Now if they'd only happen to me... Smiley: glare

Science-type people say that the Tyrannosaurus Rex didn't have feathers* which is good news since every depiction of the T. Rex with feathers looks derpy as shit.


*Or, if it did, they were confined to a ridge along its spine since that's the one skin sample they didn't have to check.

Odds are those are fake orders to try to motivate you to buy it now, since "everyone else is". Common on retail websites. Expedia and Booking.com are terrible for it. As are airlines.

And the ones with the obviously dubbed over time/price wording. They can't even get the same voice to do the later airings. Or the white blank space that they fill in with a new/localized "code" to give you the current "special" offer. I think there is a trailer/deck retractable awning commercial that I remember the most when I think about that type of special offer commercial.

Agreed, though I think in recent years it was more along the lines of juvenile feathers lost in adulthood. Turns out putting lots of insulation on a giant creature that needs to move around isn't the best idea. Smiley: oyvey

To be fair, if you wear boots for a hat, it's way easier to do a handstand. Assistance with mental gymnastics is helpful for being part of the Trump team. They already do that circle thing.

The Alt-Righters are sad because their video game safe space suddenly, uh, includes shooting Nazis?

First was Far Cry 5 which will take place in Montana and has you fighting against a militia-cult. How dare they! (That link likely won't work due to a bad word in the URL -- edit: sure didn't; added a hyphen in the offending word)

The follow-up is Wolfenstein II which has good ole BJ Blazkowicz (Spoiler: guess he survived, huh?) fighting now on American soil to defeat the Nazis who took over the world. This has people mad which is pretty weird because the best thing the Nazis ever did was give us video game opponents decades later that no one could complain about killing.

Lest one think these examples were cherry-picked, you can visit the Steam forums for the respective games and get either very amused or very depressed for yourself, depending on your state of mind. Presumably, these are the same people who are convinced that social justice warriors broke Mass Effect: Andromeda, sabotaging it so that they couldn't jerk off enough to the female character models.

Obviously something that doesn't bother other people as much as myself. Smiley: lol

Just think it's silly that you have one branch of congress go through a ton of effort to create a document that gets ignored by the other branch, so they can go through a bunch of effort to create a document that'll get ignored by the first one, at least until they all sit down together and work out something that'll work for both bodies. Just an IMO, but there's probably a couple of wasted steps in there. Smiley: rolleyes

Not that I doubt there are people like that, just that the writer is a hack over-inflating the reaction for clickbait.

That's working as intended though. The intent is that the "common man" House of Reps gets to make a bill, the "elite" Senate gets to make a bill and then they reconcile it into something both are happy with. For certain definitions of happy. It's only wasted effort if you don't care about the differences between the two chambers. Which is a legitimate thing to not care about, but so it goes.

Each chamber has a slightly different representation of the electorate. Having something that will pass through both filters means it is more likely to be broadly accepted by the population as a whole. (Well in theory at least... Smiley: rolleyes)

Sure, and part of the filtering process is both chambers creating their own draft legislation.

I guess I get your argument, I just don't see the problem with it. At least writing legislation is "working" in a body that has significant vacations from their 2-4 day work weeks.

Are you new to Steam? To internet gaming in general?

Citing Steam forums as proof of some large group of gamers freaking about about **** is silly. The Steam forums, and gaming forums in general, are pretty much the poster children for minority gamers raising a stink about **** online. And others running with it for troll lolz.

Edit:
Might as well be an article written about Pold citing Tumblr and NeoGaf forums about some SJW freak out.

I never said it was a majority group unless you're implying that Alt-Right loons make up the majority of gamers. I said that there were Alt-Right gamers getting their dander up about this.

You are oddly defensive about this Smiley: wink2

Edit: Oh, and I've had too many conversations with people legitimately convinced that SJW's forced Bioware to make their female chick "ugly" to convince myself that it's all just "trolling". There's people sincerely convinced that the New Leftist Order is coming after their precious vidyagames.

Only one post (two now). Just reminds me of the articles my cousin posts, just opposite ends of the spectrum. He and Pold would probably get along very well. Who knows, he may actually be Pold.
