Re: General Old Game Hardware Thread

Stone Age Gamer still has the old model in stock at its original price. I briefly considered that maybe I should grab one while I still can, but on reflection, why would I pay $150 for the old handheld when for $200 I could just get the new handheld and the new console? I've got other devices I can...

Re: Microsoft: Still a Thing

Following the backlash, Microsoft has announced it will make Recall opt-in instead of opt-out, and will be encrypting the screenshots and the DB of OCR'ed text instead of just saying they're encrypted because Bitlocker encrypts the entire drive. This really should have been how they did it in the fi...

Re: The Star Trek Thread

The positive things I'll say for Discovery: * It had a fantastic cast that mostly made for interesting and likable characters. * It really picked up once they jumped to the (even more) future. * I liked the season 4 arc pretty well. They're spinning it off into a Starfleet Academy series (in case yo...

The thing about Rubio is that electors from Florida can't vote for a president and a VP from Florida. There are workarounds; one of the candidates could change their residency between now and November. (I've heard this could mean Rubio would have to step down as senator; I don't know if that's accur...

Re: itt i am sharing simpsons shitposts that i made based entirely off of a five second long alvin and the chipmunks par

I mean, that sounds like a bad joke because Seth Meyers' writers are bad. I think A Closer Look consistently manages some of the best political comedy on TV. But Bart did say Cowabunga A quick glance at Frinkiac indicates that he said it twice, once in "The Telltale Head" and again in &qu...

Seth Meyers' joke about how Trump claiming he never said "lock her up" is like Bart Simpson claiming he never said "cowabunga" is the specific type of wrong that annoys the specific type of person that it has to be deliberate trolling, right? Like, what's likelier -- that they're...

It is so fucking dry here that lotioning my hands daily was never enough to stop them from cracking and I eventually started lotioning them every time I wash them.
