  2. @drinkingpony OK, look asshole - I've been biting my tongue for days. Drop it, now. You are clearly antagonistic at this point. Nobody keeps falling for bad-faith, "Well, I'm *sorry* but now what about *my feelings* since you're mad at me?" pseudo-apologies forever. You have zero interest in your own espoused "sharing ideas and thoughts" or "living in concord or harmony." You demonstrate this every time you reply with a snarky rejoinder, an apples-to-celery piece of whataboutism, or outright refusal to comply with a basic request for respect. You're in the wrong, both subjectively and objectively. So, I got a question - are you stupid, or trolling? Because you've disproved any other interpretation.

  3. @drinkingpony People don’t really need to twist anything you say, it’s already pretty consistently bad.

  4. Told me wife about being transgender this week, glad I did. She has been super amazing and supportive. Been experimenting with makeup, clothing and some other things. I promise this post wasn't timed.

  5. @drinkingpony Gender and sexuality are completed different things. Perhaps in a some post singularity society with people who have had years of transcendental existence physical sex will be less significant, but that is a moot point. And yes, you can still brag about mortal physically accomplishments because it takes time, practice, motivation, sacrifice and dedication to win an Olympic medal, worthy of praise.

  6. @mrmattimation leftism is just a ruse to oppress the real minority: sweaty gamers

  7. @drinkingpony Considering an environment like this one currently perpetuated, which has historically borne bitter fruit for the LGBTQ community, Caitlyn Marie Jenner may be neither saint nor hero, but has undeniable bravery. Drink up, buttercup. And Olympic Gold Medals are objectively a stunning achievement, regardless of what else one may or may not accomplish in life.

  10. I issued a refund and Valve sent me a RMA return label. DO THEY REALLY WANT THAT EMPTY COLA BOTTLE?!?!?!?!?

  11. @drinkingpony I was supposed to receive mine today but the delivery person is an asshole and didn't do their job.

  12. My steam controllers came in. One of the 2 boxes was all banged up and had repair-tape of the sender all over it. DoA, that story is going to be long, rough, and unpleasant.

    Spend a bit of time on my working steam controller, and it is actually a nice thing. I poked a bit around on my Steam to area's where I do not go pretty often, being greeted with all sorts of soundbytes from GTA VC when I put on the music player on.

    Say Goodnight Mr Diaz !

    But I can see this being a real nice doohickey. Probably going to spend at least some time familiarizing myself with the device, and then if my 2nd one ever gets whole again probably load it up with all sorts of weird stuff. I already know where to begin actually.


    Now the question if it will EVER work well on the Nintendo Switch. Hah, never. the actual buttons and stick are way too LDOS/RDOS to make it halfway comfortable for gaming sessions of over 5 minutes.

  13. GLS is the worst packet delivery service. I was at home and they didn't bother to ring the bell and they went straight to leave a note in my mail box to pick up the packet in the middle of nowhere at a kiosk.

  14. @mrmattimation Oh yes, I agree. The moment I hear that the person tapping jokes takes it up the chocolate highway is the moment I can truely laugh at their jokes.

    [ insert "What a Twist" soundbyte from Robot Chicken here ]

  15. @scribus You mean storyboarding ? Can we get a highly pixelated screenshot/picture of the sprawling maze, mess & chaos ?

  16. @mrmattimation With all due respect, I think you are somehow doing what you are doing in the reverse order ?

    I mean I like putting my eggs in my favorite basket as much as the next lazy hen. But you kinda want to return to see the work you do actually do pay off. What if I chose the Beto basket up early ?

    Not to mention that EVERYONE ( and their mum ) are extremely on edge because of the seasonal festivities and the outside cold.

    Besides, the time untill Januari 20th 2021 is a LONG one to cover your ears and plug your eyes.

  17. Wake up, check the funnies that my friends have send me.

    ( >> Twenty-bleeping-ninteen. I was supposed to be on a starship by now, conversing with intelligent robots, deciding what sort of body I'd like to upload my immortal consciousness to. Instead we're all still on this bleeping rock, wondering how to placate the "bleeping working class" ... I'll never forgive the troglodyes who stole the future I EARNED to prolong their worthless existence << )

    What an odd thing to say. Why is this in my daily funnies ?

    Oh... OHHHH !!! I see now... It's a thing Moviebob said. Ohkay so NOW it is funny :D And the more you learn about him the more you agree with the Germans that there should be an English word for Shadenfreude.

    Wait, he was hired in 2018 by the same people who fired him in 2015 in order to make the content less political ?

    This thing is so complicated :o

  18. @mrmattimation Virtual sex is still sex I guess. So I guess technically it would not be lying.

  19. Playing though Vice City on a modern day computer. Our protagonist has the tendancy to sometimes speak during the loading screens from indoors to outdoors when on missions.

    At one point, just before seeing the racer you need for the heist, he pretty much says in the face of the driver "Why can't I ever meet someone normal ?" as the loading time was too short to let the audio play out. Adding to the humor right at the moment that this driver guy starts to freak out enough that even I just want to throw some crazy pills his way.

    I mean, I won't since he is just a bunch of polygons, and drugs are expensive. But you got the jist of it.

  21. The more I learn about American Politics, the happier I am that I am not there.

    Perhaps it is some sort of displacement glee, since I am sure that learning about my own countries politics would leave me heartbroken in a way regarding where I am.

  25. @mrmattimation Senate rule XXV. It comes up every few years, the laughter I mean. Barbara Boxer and Pat Robert's cases specfically. Eventually they'll find some poor sodding excuse to bend the rules a wee bit or some poor excuse for a politician to dump there for a while. The ones that stand out in the game of politics do not stay in there for long. Look at Mitch McConnell or Harry Reid. Gotta climb up that ladder somehow. Even if that means, to quote Dinozzo from NCIS from the start of season six "Being the only cop on a Carrier isn't in any way a 'fun' thing to do, especially for this salary".

  26. Seemingly it becomes harder and harder in life to not trigger someone into a politically motivated semi-rant. I was just asking if all the kids get sweets by the helpers and some woman gets up all in my face about how I used a degrading word.

    Smile and nod... smile and nod...

    "I like candy"

    Though it was hard for me not to sigh out loud and reach for my emergency-pocket-Brandy.

  27. @adiwan Yes, it can be done though 4K footage, however you need to go through it frame by frame and you need someone to make best guesses as this someone scetches the fingerprint.

    The real problem begins once we get 8K, people at Defcon estimate that is when you can get bots to scrouge entire video's en-masse looking for fingerprints, Kinda like how face-recognision software works in current era.

  28. I see so many repair and product review videos on youtube and I wonder if someone attempted to reconstruct fingerprints from these videos. I mean that the videos are so close to the fingers that you can see almost every detail in 1080p/2160p so it could be feasible to do that.

  29. @scribus That heavily depends on the person really. Heck I have a friend who did a drone obstacle course like that and behaved like a pro. I also have a friend who nearly fell off of her chair after 2 minutes of playing Mario Kart on a huge projector screen.

    I have a suspicion that it has something to do with how fast you become queezy after sitting on a merry-go-round.

    I believe Brainiac did something like that YEARS ago.

  30. @adiwan I am not going to use a weak 5V line to boil stuff. I mean I think with 100% conversion I'd be able to put 2.5 W into my water. Meaning 1 DTU would take approximately 25 seconds per teaspoon of water. So if I go from room temperature to boiling I would need to spend approx 40 minutes on half a cup of water.

    And that is just due to the limitations of the USB line.
