  1. The polls were wrong again, as many said they would be, but those people missed a crucial point: Biden’s lead was SO massive that even a larger-than-average polling error (and this error was pretty average - about the same as it was in 2012, when Obama did better than expected across Florida, Virginia, and Colorado) couldn’t undo it. The campaign couldn’t rely on the polls being wrong, and they did anyway. So why are they surprised they lost?

  4. Rudy Giuliani saying that Trump “probably won” Virginia is making me question whether or not Rudy Giuliani’s head is on straight. http://rainbowdash.net/url/875696

  5. Trump keeps talking about that tax cut but about 25% of my income this year was funneled directly to the government so I don’t think he did a good job

  6. Oh boy. I search for a new laser printer for my parents as theirs refuse to cooperate. The exact model I own is now about 100€ more expensive than I bought it over a year ago. WTF.

    • @scribus I just watched all the 13 episodes. It's good. Not overwhelmingly good. Good good. Some jokes and segments were not to my own taste but the rest was good 'ol fun.

    • @adiwan @scribus I enjoyed it quite a bit, although I definitely thought the Pinky and the Brain segments were generally the better parts of the episodes they were in. Not that the Warner Bros. segments were bad at all, they were pretty funny, I just thought P&B had waaaaay less misses.

    • @mrmattimation Pinky and the Brain operate from a well-established formula and it s not very surprising that their segment is the more consistent one. I still agree that they were mostly the better part of the show.

  9. Because I'm somewhat of a dumbass, I only recently learned that one of Ireland's symbols is the harp. I had some vague familiarity with the Guinness harp (though I don't drink often) but I didn't really connect it. It's on Euros too of course, but I either didn't use any when I went to Spain or wasn't paying attention.

    • @scribus This is really just a bad habit of mine. Any home console games where you could manipulate things on-screen usually ended up getting pushed to their very limits by me. Special mention goes to Fallout 4 where my game was perpetually running at sub-20 any time I was in one of my settlements.

  14. It depresses me that there are less and less new PC cases with space for optical drives (CD/DVD/BluRay). I'm starting to look around for a new PC. As my PC is older and my case has only USB2 ports and an unreliable headphone jack, as well as showing wear I want a new one. My current case is from Cooler Master from 2006.

    • @scribus What even happened to floppy drives, EDO RAM, user-upgradable CPU cache, manually selectable device IRQ, Soundblaster, 3Dfx, CRT monitors, PS/2 keyboards, ball mice, IDE, SCSI...?

      about 16 days ago in context
    • @adiwan I'm willing to let go of ball mice, but I still want me some PS/2 ports because damn it you only give me four USB ports and expect two of them to be mandatory input devices???

    • @scribus I'm glad my monitor has an integrated USB hub. I have a mouse, keyboard, scanner, drawing tablet, VR headset, and an external HDD, a microphone, and a webcam attached to almost all available ports of the whole system. I use the front ones occasionally for the SD card reader. So I'm pretty much maxed out.

  21. Oh God I hate Amazon's bot chat. I always used the email option because I despise the chat. The bot makes it even worse. I had my already prepared text for a complaint for a late prime delivery that gives me a 5€ voucher. The chat takes a lot more steps between my complaint and its resolution and a lot more time. First I have to click trough the bot responses and then do the whole customer support dance to get to my desired result.
