    IN RESPONSE TO: Tesla Fixes their cars to give you less unless you pay them

    This is common practice in IT as it is cheaper to just manufacture one item and only sell you options you want to buy. You almost have to think of it as a service at that point.

    IBM for example will sell you a P-Series with a lot of memory in it. The memory has to be enabled before you can use it. So if a system is installed with extra options, but you don't need the memory at the time when you bought it, but later you need to have more memory on the system, they can send a guy out to enable it without you waiting to get the part and have someone install it.

    Also, think about your cable. Your TV can receive all channels, but they only enable the ones you pay for.

    Tesla isn't charging you for the added features, they just happen to exist on your car. You didn't pay for those options. If you want the upgrade, you call and they can do it remotely, as if you paid for that upgraded engine or bigger batteries.

    Again, it is just cheaper for them to make one car and sell you what you want to buy.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Left-Wing Terrorists: Antifa

    I did put a lot into race, and I did generalize quite a bit. This of course is my personal experience and everyone has dealt with good and bad people from every race.
    Also, I should make it clear that I have really good friends from every race you could imagine. I could go down a list of people and races that are great friends. How much of d bag would that make me sound though, so much more than I already have? At the end of the day, they are just my friends, there isn't a race there.

    When I went back and looked at what I typeed, it was a angry rant, and I made it sound like all whites are the best people ever. That wasn't my intention... I was mostly angry with the people that flat out state, "if you are white, you are a racist". Which isn't any more true than saying, "if you are black, you are a racist", or "if you are hispanic, you are a racist".

    My intention though was to state that I do think most media is giving too much attention to the narrative that MOST whites are racist devils and need to be stopped. There is still racism from all sides, and being so close to it, and seeing it from all directions (since I have always been that square peg trying to fit in a round hole), whites are just a small slice of that huge racist pie.

    Anyone have stats on how many people went blind yesterday?

    I'm just curious.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Monday Politics

    My wife has a Red MAGA hat that I wouldn't even think about wearing in public since I would probably be beaten...

    Though I was thinking of wearing it to Disneyland just to see how good their security is. I could put some Disney pins on it, since I have a few of them. I take video for my YouTube channel (which I will resist plugging here) every weekend, and would probably get some good video.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Halp

    I've had 2 surgeries for this already. They were 10+ years ago. I still have problems breathing through my nose, but I just have learned to deal with it.

    It kinda sucks.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Left-Wing Terrorists: Antifa

    I am so F***ing tired of this "If you are white, you are a racist" BS ...

    I am a mix of almost everything except for black. I have Mexican, Filipino, Puerto Rican, Native American, Irish, and who know what else. Let's just say I am a mutt. "There ain't nobody like me but me." Probably why I am as ugly as I am. :P People look at me and have no clue what my ethnic background is. When I am asked what I am, I get tired of explaining everything I am so I just flat out say I am a mutt or other.

    I have lived in four states growing up (Colorado, Idaho, Utah, and California), I went to 4 different High Schools in 3 states...

    - I wasn't "brown/mexican" enough to be accepted by the Mexican/hispanic groups...
    - I wasn't "yello/asian" enough to be accepted by the Asian groups...
    - I wasn't black at all to be accepted by black groups...

    Do you know who always accepted me into their groups, as a friend, who wanted to hang out with me? Whites. No one else. So when I hear that whites are the most racist group, it really makes me mad. Honestly, I have been made fun of by just about every group except for whites. This is just a personal observation, and I know people will get mad at me for generalizing, but black and hispanic groups have been the worst, followed by Asians. I could even break that down by Vietnamese, Chinese, Filipinos, Japanese, etc. (those aren't in any order mind you).

    In the business world, and as an adult, I have experienced little to no racism. I may have been ignorant to the fact it was happening if it was happening. It really makes me think the media is trying hard to push an agenda that there are A LOT of racists living in America. Probably so they get more viewers. I believe there are pockets, but they are small and pretty insignificant. The media knows that people like to rally behind a common good, and when people rally, it gets ratings. In the long run, it really just widens the gap between each of the races when most decent, hard working, educated and non-educated people don't care what color of skin you have or where you come from. As long as you are a law abiding citizen and can contribute to society and not be a drain on it.

    IN RESPONSE TO: I'm so old that

    You think that makes you feel old, get this...

    My daughter works with me as a SAN engineer/PC Support and the person that maintains the electrical generator at 2 of our customers sites (the huge ones that power entire data centers). She is only 23, but it feels awkward when she tells me I am doing something wrong. :-)

    Another awkward thing is I still can't get her to call me Robert at work, she still calls me Dad.

    "When is "soon"? In the gaming world "soon" could mean 5 years from now."

    WHEN IT'S READY!!! :-)


    Yeah, of course I remember schlonglor.com. Which, even though it is registered through a privacy protection service, looks like it is probably registered by someone in Japan, though they could be anywhere.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Bathroom Experience of Nightmares

    'We had walked into the bathroom of nightmares where it looked like someone had pulled their dick out and spun in circles peeing.'

    I rarely laugh, dare I say, out loud, but that one made me actually laugh.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Dunkin Donuts are so gross

    I was once told, and I tend to believe it...

    They make their donuts some place else across the country and they ship them to their stores, where they are thawed and served. They don't make them at each store like most donut places.

    That is just what I heard, so you can take that with a grain of salt, but after tasting them, I can pretty much believe it...yuck.

    IN RESPONSE TO: 20 year party

    The funny thing is I have known about you before you started at Blizzard. And chatted with you while you have been working there off and on (mostly off) over those 20 years.

    I once shook your hand at E3, but you called me a stalker, so I never attempted to contact you again in RL. :-) Now you have a daughter and are a grown ass man, you have grown up right in front of us. :p

    My wife once called herself a Warcraft Widow because I would stay up all night playing WC2, using your strategy guides. I loved lining up the goblin sappers/demolition squads to blow up town halls. Your guides made it fun.

    Congrats on your 20 years, that is a long time to be with the same company.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Sunday + OLD Random News

    Being an Annual Pass holder at Disneyland (even though those thefts are are at Disneyworld), I am amazed how trusting people are. They park their strollers with ALL their stuff in the bottom (keys, wallets, purses, and things they have bought) and hop on a ride. I can't excuse people for stealing, but people are dumb if they don't take care of their own stuff.

    When my kids were young, I would take a cheap cane stroller (or rent one there since they will replace it if it gets taken), and carry all our stuff with us in a back pack on the ride. It's not worth a thief's time taking a cheap ass stroller.

    Regardless, I hope that b**** gets what is coming to her.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Saw Guardians of the Galaxy 2

    I saw it on Friday at Downtown Disney. Went to a 7:15 showing. I bought the tickets 20 minutes in advance and the theater was only 200 of the 500 or so seats had been sold. It surprised me, but I guess if you are going to Disneyland, you are there for the park and not so much the theater..

    It was in an Atmos theater, and it was worth it. I would easily pay for a better sound system than 3D. I actually avoid 3D and only watch it if I can't find it in 2D. That is something I wish would just die.

    Movie was great, one of my 15 y/o's favorite song is Mr. Blue Sky, so that was a great moment for her. My kids listen to older music, so they enjoyed the film more with the non-modern music that was used (like in the first).

    My friend said he felt the "funny moments" were a bit forced, though I don't agree. I am excited to see the MCU films for the rest of the year and next.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Wednesday Random News

    I worked at a Pizza place when I lived in Idaho and Salt Lake City when I was 14-15. We used to hand roll the pizza. I would flatten it by hand, roll the edge out, spin it to even out the middle, throw it on a pan and cut the edges in about 20-30 seconds. You actually get pretty good at spinning after doing so many during rush.

    I can do the spins in the air, behind the back and hand to hand switches (my kids are amazed at me just twirling a damp towel or square pillow), but forget the shoulder rolls. I didn't even know there was a competition for that.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Games

    Forgot to add...

    I got you beat on the years playing video games. I think I am around 42 years if you count the Sears Pong my parents bought me back in late '75 (I think that is the year).

    I have played (not owned though) almost every system since.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Games

    If you didn't play Shadow of Mordor, that was pretty good, and it is on sale for $10.

    I don't THINK you have a PS4, but Nier and Horizon: Zero Dawn was pretty amazing. Nier is on the PC too. It plays well, and you get a decent 3 plays out of it for the full story.

    I have always preferred the Xbox over the Play Station (mostly because I hate the controller for the Playstation), but I have to admit they do have better games at the moment.

    IN RESPONSE TO: I like

    I get the first 2, but not sure what people see in Emma Stone.

    I don't see a redeeming quality in her from the way she talks to the way she looks. I swear she has a lisp, or maybe the way she forms her words is just very lazy, not sure.

    I can't blame anyone for liking who they like, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Some people can't understand why I find Milla Jovovich so pretty.
