More cheery news! Secretary of State Kris Kobach is working hard to ensure that the election for governor between Kris Kobach and Laura Kelly is run in a just and impartial manner. Access to the ballot box in November will be more difficult for some people in Dodge City, where Hispanics now make up ...

Re: Inspirational tales of Glorious Unfettered Capitalism

Yogi Berra's famous aphorism about nobody going anywhere because it's too popular is apparently perfectly possible if you have owners who are simply too rich and stubborn to care about actually making money.

I'm reminded about Thad and Brent talking about security updates yesterday and how we're just driving everyone towards trusting nothing. Speaking of which, Discord added a rider to their TOS to deny users the ability to take part in a class-action lawsuit against them. 1052777579961176064 Pretty su...

Re: MASHUP MEGATHREAD

Overly violent/aggressive/macho hip hop vocals recombined with wildly inappropriate backing music is one of my favourite genres.

This is... decent by that standard; good, but not Biggie Smalls vs Thomas the Tank Engine good.

For me it really just boils down to time efficiency. "Am I skilled enough to pick up this game and figure it out well enough to win it in the first couple goes with no savescumming? If not, do care enough about this game to play it for X months?" Since the answer to that is usually "N...

Re: The Antisocial Network

I don't mind having videos on an article for those who want them, but I just want to read things.

For one thing, it's invariably a hell of a lot faster than watching a video with the same content.

And now that they've been found out, that's going to destroy thousands of careers of people who make videos. It already is. Part of the reason this is all over the news is because of the widespread layoffs to video staff among media orgs. Also, yeah, people who lose money by cheaping out in trying ...

Re: XCom: Flooding the Market with Dead Poisonlizard Salarymen

I always think about all of the improvements long war makes, but then stop myself from using it because aside from removing some of the bullshit it also just makes the game harder which I'm not sure I really want either. Yeah. In my Really Long Review of Long War a few months back, I basically went...

Re: The Winter Up There Must Give People Brain Freeze

Beat's correct that generally there's no At-Will employment in Canada once you pass a probation period (almost always three weeks). Weed at work has basically been left to the employer, so regulations will vary enormously, with some companies saying its fine as long as you don't work impaired, while...
