Re: Arizona is a blasted hellscape

McCain diagnosed with brain cancer; survival rates for that form make it very unlikely he'll last out his term.

Brain cancer is very near the top of my personal list of horrifying ways to die. All else aside, I wish him the best.

Re: GOP Will Shit Itself

My wild speculation is that Jerry Moran is angling for a leadership position in the future. He's got one of the safest seats in the Senate (not up for reelection until '22, in Kansas ), he's already had a very successful stint running the National Republican Senatorial Committee that helped put seve...

Re: Computerus

I couldn't find any new GTX 570s anywhere, and I'd rather avoid buying used GPUs unless it's so cheap that I don't care if it turns out to be a total bust (like $20). New is not an option, the GTX 570 was released in 2010. It's not even remotely close to an RX460; the closest modern nVidia equivale...

See, he and Cameron had common ground after all. Or at least a shared interest in unnecessary self-inflicted wounds.

Re: The Eeeeew

Looks like Britain's headed for a minority government and a hung parliament. And - ooops - the news just broke that Labour is now more likely to be the winner than the Conservatives. Expect there to be a lot of votecount arguing! Can't say I'm seeing that; forecast I'm seeing at the moment is 322 f...

The WaPo kept a running list of cable news chyrons seen during the hearing. It will surprise absolutely none of you that HER EMAILS popped up on Fox, and only Fox, repeatedly.

Just wanted to underscore this point: the music in this game (or these game s , rather) would be worth the price of admission alone. Some of it can be a little overblow...

I have never played the original. Nor have I. I could tell that there were some references to something I was missing, but it was almost all in the form of flavor text notes you could find in the world, "Gestalt Project Archives" and whatnot. No effect on my enjoyment or understanding of ...

Re: Oh shit, what are we gonna do now?

First special House election of the season is done, in Kansas 4; the Republican candidate won by an 8% margin, in a district that Trump won by 27% and the former Republican rep won by 31%. That's a heck of a swing in a matter of months, even if some of it can be attributed to the state's wildly unpo...

Re: Bogus, batshit, banal, bizarre, or bicubic: Assorted News

Correction: another couple was asked first, but did not disembark. According to passengers on the plane , that couple refused, so the airline staff moved on to the Daos. Somehow, they didn't escalate that and call in three cops. " Conflicting accounts ", says that same journalist; other p...

IDB is Involuntary Denied Boarding , and Dr. Dao wasn't denied boarding. He had boarded and was seated, which means we're not Rule 25 of the CoC, which is IDBs, we're in Rule 21, which is Refusal of Transport . Not nearly as well settled as you might think. "Boarding" is more commonly hel...

Re: Bogus, batshit, banal, bizarre, or bicubic: Assorted News

It seems quite clear that the best way to handle this, when no passengers agreed to leave the flight for $800, would have been to raise the offer until it became appealing enough for four people to accept it. I bet they could have found four people who would have taken another flight for substantia...

Re: Hey [%target] Whatcha Playin'?

NieR: Automata is perhaps the only game where within five minutes you can go from an android musing on the Ship of Theseus Paradox as it applies to the components of his own body, to fighting a team of Western-themed robots. There's also a sidequest event that I swear is straight up channeling Ryan ...
