Re: What about a thread for good news?

Shame how it'll be enjoined by that same right-wing judge in Texas by next month and dead at SCOTUS by next year. (A company that's represented by a Clarence Thomas clerk's husband has already filed a lawsuit in the Northern District of Texas, so the ground work is already being laid for it going be...

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.

Re: Fucking Cell Phones

Yeah, I've been getting the flagship versions of the Pixels because I have more money than sense and I've been pretty happy. Google's been pushing AI bullshit but I haven't seen too much getting pushed on the phones besides like... some photo/video editing tools, where you have to intentionally trig...

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.

Re: Ol' shoot 'em in the leg

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...

Re: Ol' shoot 'em in the leg

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...

Re: Hey [%target] Whatcha Playin'?

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...

Re: Trump Leaving Office Poll (Part 2)

I gotta say I'm impressed that Trump still has a non-zero number of competent lawyers. "The motion, filed on behalf of defendant Michael Roman, a former Trump campaign official, seeks to have the charges against Roman dismissed and for Willis, Wade and the entire DA’s office to be disqualified...

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...
