Re: Our Boys In Blue

These are Canadian cops, so (as far as I'm aware) it's more First Nations than general PoC, and sometimes they're Starlight Tours rather than shooting.

Re: The Antisocial Network

Jack Dorsey's problem with Bluesky is...moderation. And the absence of Nazis. "they started asking Jay and the team for moderation tools, and to kick people off. And unfortunately they followed through with it. That was the second moment I thought, uh, nope." (Bluesky is also fairly queer...

Re: Game musings and news

They still need to undo the 'take the game off of sale in regions where PSN isn't available' but other than that it appears to all be fixed.

Re: Game musings and news

To be fair, it was allegedly the plan the entire time, they didn't enact it early on because they were too busy keeping the servers on at all. On the other hand... They also sold it in countries where PSN is unavailable. In the less than a week since the announcement, Steam reviews all time are now ...

Shame how it'll be enjoined by that same right-wing judge in Texas by next month and dead at SCOTUS by next year.

Re: Trump Leaving Office Poll (Part 2)

Someone did, but it was because they wanted to co-opt the attention being given to the trial for their conspiracy theory manifesto rather than being pro or anti trump.

Yeah, I've been getting the flagship versions of the Pixels because I have more money than sense and I've been pretty happy.

Re: HOW WAS YOUR DAY

I don't know precisely how, but as far as I'm aware I've managed to never get Covid. Probably helped by the fact that I'm antisocial, don't go out in public often, and I've been masked most of the time that I do go out.

Weirdly this is still the primary, when it could be someone other than Biden OR Trump. That would be the "(while ideally making efforts to get better choices in the future.)" phase I mentioned. Unfortunately, the options there are Biden, Dean "opposed Medicare for All until 2023 as a...

Trying to avoid turning this into a mess. Which I assume is why a lot of people I would have expected to haven't chimed in here. But I do have one question. After supporting, funding, and arming a genocide: how is Biden "not-Hitler" still? If your only choices are "Hitler" or &q...

Re: Ol' shoot 'em in the leg

I mean, I currently live in a super safe blue state, so I will happily throw my vote away on a third party in exchange for someone in a swing state actually voting for Not Literal Hitler. But hopefully by the following presidential election (when Biden will no longer be eligible having served two te...

Re: Hey [%target] Whatcha Playin'?

Legacy has a bad story, because it takes place in the Harry Potter universe, which has bad lore. Far-and-away the failings of the game come from this, despite the writer's attempts to kill and bury the author to the best of their ability. But you can't just unmake the social politics of the existin...

I mean, I'm playing BG3 (only in Act 1 so far, didn't get it until Crimbo and haven't had the free time to get very deep into it) because it is very much D&D 5e but when I do munchkin-y broken powergaming builds, I'm not pissing other people off. (My current Main Character is a three-class multi...

And I found that it uses the same chime for "don't change lanes right now, you've got someone in your blind spot" and "your dog is not wearing a seatbelt." I have a dog leash that clips into the seatbelt buckle, which I mainly use to keep it from nagging me when I have a dog rid...
