  3. Hmm, silky creamy sheev.

    If you do not get that reference it is a Star Wars thing. Let us hope the leaks are not correct on this one.

    May the fork be with you.

  6. 6 books (or 12 because one book consists of two volumes) to go and I'm done with the Ranma ½ manga and then get it out of my system. No more obsession about "what happens next".

  9. @mrmattimation What germans do for fun ? Same as me, drink a lot of alcohol while dressed in funny dresses and making a lot of puns about weiners.

    Oh, and dancing.

  11. I just read that the 3950x orders excel 16 times the available stock. (German) https://www.computerbase.de/2019-11/ryzen-9-3950x-tr-3970x-3960x-verfuegbarkeit/
    Yowsa! That's a lot, even at that high price!

  12. I just wait a little bit longer upgrading my PC. I bet the price will be slashed soon to make it less painful.

  15. @adiwan Ohkay, litteral how ? I mean you know it was going to be an expensive product but [ checks local store ] where does the extra 180 Euro come from ?

    about 14 days ago from web in context
  16. @adiwan Oh, silly idea. What if you turn them 180 degrees ? Sure they might read 8ㄥ9ϛㄣƐᄅƖ but they would be correctly ordered.

  19. I just saw the price of the AMD Ryzen 9 3950x and I'm speechless. Almost 1000€ (with taxes) is too much for me.

  21. Hmm, a car with square wheels...

    spends 40 seconds on Google

    Oh why am I not surprised that Marques Brownlee is going to buy a Tesla Cybertruck ? Also for some reason the kid inside of me wants to replay Grand Theft Auto 3.

  22. @scribus At first I wanted to say that these kind of spines are fine but then I remembered from my childhood how infuriating these are. I once collected Disney comics that are collected in books that are about the size of a manga (about 200 pages and the page size is about the same as a typical manga). It was not easy for me to get all books with a limited budget and in a pre-internet era. So I lived a long time with incomplete pictures staring at me like a Scrooge and Donald with hacked-up faces. Not only that but when I had a complete picture, due to the production inaccuracies, the picture didn't align perfectly (a 2mm offset!), which is infuriating in its own right. F those spines!!!

  23. @mrmattimation Yeahh... There are 2 ways that could go. Either you never knew who the most Liberal American president in the past 100 years was and do not care, or you are going to give the same answer regarding who won the German federal election in 1933.

    But who cares right ? this was all way before you were born.

    I disagree to that fully. To know what do or think in the now you must realize how things got to be in that position in the first place. Else you might as well try to make a car with square wheels.

    And I am sorry for invoking godwins law on this one but you really should know your classics if you want to even approach something like calling Obama a Conservative. Heck, you can go all the way and call Al Gore a Reactionary if you want words to lose all meaning.

  24. @drinkingpony Hell, noone is going to read that. the TL;DR version is that 3th parties can not work as intended when the established big-shots are polarised around a handfull of topics.

    And in most other democratic focussed countries you have many smaller political parties that have to huddle around and negociate with one-another untill they have formed a coalition or opposition.

    Both systems have flaws.

    The Internet just served for one thing, to make it more apparent, but noone is closer to a sollution. Politics is way too grounded in tradition to change with anything other than revolutions.

  25. @scribus I understand how the system came to be and why parties in the USA are 'fighting' the way that they do. In the very short and crude way of explaining, it is a republic that had a weird evolutionary step a LONG time ago that is sort of centered around the Federalist Party and their opponents the anti-administration party. How they were the classical conservatives of that era ( 1789-ish ) while their opponents were Jeffersonianist Populists ( which later became a formal party called the Jefferson's Republic Party ). and bam, there you have it. The foundation of why there are pretty much only two parties in America back then. I do not remember what effect being a minister to the court of versailles during Guerre de la Première but as you can probably guess it was a big reason to get in line with either party A or party B. As such the die was cast. Untill the first third party stood up, the Anti-Masonic Party.

    and then it got ALL muddy when WHIG had 4 nominees in 1832.

  26. Usually I put a book series in the shelf from right to left in ascending order. However these double-volume books have the annoying thing that the two volume numbers are side by side. So Right now the shelf looks like this: 7 + 8, 5 + 6, 3 + 4, 2 + 1. I think I'm the only one (member of the left-to-right-reading society) putting books in "reverse" order.

  27. @scribus Oh no, I understand that. I just have a hard time wrapping my head around the optics of public opinion regarding the topic.

    I mean take a look at http://rainbowdash.net/url/875337 ( it is a graph taken from http://rainbowdash.net/url/875338 ) If your political compass put you slightly on the left of Obama and then you voted for Obama in 2008, that if your political compass remained somewhat the same that you would be WAY closer to the Republicans than you would to the Democrats in 2016. Heck Obama took in unaffiliated people to the white house and still made a left turn according to this graph alone.

    If you do not agree with that graph, it is a fact that Democrats in America are extremely fast in swaying more and more liberal. Public perception can not keep up, and now Obama is a concervative. The historian in me does not like this one bit

  28. @mrmattimation I'm afraid to ask what you think of Jimmy Carter.

  29. Alcohol infused hot take :

    Well if the Washington Post now openly calls Obama a Conservative, think of what that means for a second. It means that the best stabled horse in the DNC is way too far to the right of what the DNC wants themselves.

    I wonder what is next. Are they going to throw him out ? Or throw allegories at him as they chant "We know why you did not fix racism, You right wing asshole !" Obviously not, but just think for a second, how crazy is that, Obama a conservative...

    I sure hope he was not a conservative when going up against John McCain. I mean, what would he be by this measuring stick ? My money is somewhere in between a Inquisitor from the W40K universe and a big wooden T in someone's backyard, that might be on fire.

    I hope you all can get a chuckle out of this. Except that article, no, that article is real I'm afraid.

  30. @adiwan There really is not a whole lot that sounds better when it is dubbed tho. Anime is no exception.

    Though I must say I have heard some good things about Full Metal Alchemist, Cowboy Bebop, InuYasha, Black Butler and SteinsGate.

    Then again I also heard about Dragon Ball, One Piece, Naruto, and Neon Genesis Evangelion that nullify any good will I would ever have for dubs.

    Let me quickly check up on some anime I was into way back when ( before I realized it was pretty much the UC story being soft-rebooted in a different universe ) and so I watched http://rainbowdash.net/url/875336 for about a minute.

    Ohkay so I know this isn't the best scene in the whole anime, and I honestly have a hard time remembering the good bits let alone where they were and in what episode or I would probably go see the bit where Flay goes insane and tries to become boyfriends with Kira. But damn, this sounds SO bad.

    Oh it got so much worse with the techno babble and the "that is all there is ?!?" at 9M
