Will not be missed. No sense of editorial responsibility, poorly-researched, invective, name-calling articles. Bought up a bunch of other sites that didn't suck (io9, Lifehacker, Jalopnik, arguably Deadspin), infected those sites with their culture and attitude, and made them the worse for it.
When they want protection under the law, they're a "news organization". When they're expected to take some kind of responsibility for what they publish, it's "why are you picking on us? We're just a blog."

Ugh, that sucks. Who's left at this point - Christian, Furlan, and Jurasik? Is that it?
Canuck - interesting video, I never knew that. Makes me wonder if this is the thing that Doyle and JMS had a falling-out over - he always alluded to a promise being made that wasn't kept, but never would elaborate.

I'm so torn on this one. If this guy is the only option that I have to choose in order to prevent that other person from being elected president... man. I don't know. The guy has had more bankrupted businesses than I've had shoes, and is somehow still richer than I will ever be.

Yeah, strokes are serious business, and every delay will worsen the damage. Good call in not hesitating. The co-pay is better than the alternative.

That's interesting. Looked up five of my doctors, they came to about $300 total. I don't know if that means they're good guys, or if they're just not worth paying off.

I'm totally for putting cameras on law enforcement. It would solve a lot of this "I said, he said" nonsense.

Oh, man. In these situations you have to comply promptly, but not move too quickly. But then, you can't move too slowly either, that would be suspicious.
Ah, F it. Just assume that any interaction with law enforcement might conclude with you being shot, or beaten, or tazed, or something else bad. Unfortunate fact of life.

I shouldn't even bother, but there's a thing that bugs me. It's like the gas mileage in my car affecting the price of tea in China. It doesn't. Because one thing is true doesn't make the other thing true OR false.
Anytime you have large-scale protesting and rioting, there is vandalism and theft. It doesn't mean that anyone protesting is being disingenuous about their protest. You can't be looting a store and standing in a crowd of 200 people, staring down the local constabulary at the same time. Different people.
It means that even in the middle of a local uproar, criminals are doing what they do. People remain true to their nature. What do you expect those people to do if you give them the opportunity to let loose?
And on the other side, is someone going to try to tell me that because people are committing crime it proves the cops are blameless in this total clusterfuck of a situation? Those people remain true to their nature too. What do you expect those people to do if you give them the opportunity to let loose?
My worry is not that we're going to see a bunch of these pop up all over the place as time passes. I worry that eventually it'll become so frequent that it no longer bears mentioning.

Not like she is a new unknown, one of the top youtube channels. Millions and millions of youtube views for YEARS, this chick... More like they waited UNTIL she was rich. Sucks for her. O well.

I don't get it. All the money just goes in a bucket. It's not like Hobby Lobby has to literally run out to the store and buy some chick's birth control.

Get the warranty. You probably won't have any problem, but it's worth the difference, I think.
Good choice of router, BTW. This thing is superb. I live in a 97-year-old house with solid lath and plaster walls, signal doesn't go through them very well. But with this router, I can get three bars of signal where I never got any before.

The messed up thing about our government, as it is now is that it's all a game to them. Yes, I'm going to complain about the two-party system again. The score is basically tallied by the number of constituents a party has on their side. It's like a game of pick-up sticks, and we're just the sticks.
Sure, there are people who get involved in government because they honestly want to help the people around them, but the game sucks most of them in, because generally if you want to get elected, you're going to have to pick a team and play for them.
The rest, we call independents or fringe contingents, or RRP.
And as a whole, all we do is cheer when someone on our team bests someone on their team. Then we get back to watching TV.
It pains me to say, but I at least envy Canadians in as far as when enough people get pissed at one of the parties up there, they gather in the following election and pretty effectively wipe out that party.
I've said it before, I'll say it again, we need at least one more option, or two less.

A favorite game for the last year, at least for me. The randomness to shots adds a layer of difficulty at times, but I just spent more of my round making sure I could get my people into positions where they were much less likely to miss. There's a couple of sniper perks that almost break the game, though. And that one dodge perk for the forward class is great for drawing fire.
