Facebook UserAnd Americans were wrongly shielded from the pain their electoral choices wrought. Fuck this and fuck them. If the GOP can't even gut healthcare like they promised to do we are never going to get rid of these fuckers and the morons will never get their just desserts.


"They didn't do the bad thing I was afraid of ?which is bad because now they won't get blamed for doing that bad thing."

So fucking stupid.

I'm in mild awe. This is like some crazy hawk wanting more terror attacks to happen to justify a full scale war "to protect our country".

More like an anit-war person who views 9/11 has Americans chickens come home to roost.

It's one thing to think that 9/11 was the consequence of decades of foreign policy, it's quite another thing to think the people in the towers deserved it.

If the analogy holds, and note I said it was more like not that I thought it was good analogy, the military personnel at the Pentagon are a third group who we should treat differently. I feel like the military personnel did deserve it in so far as they are complicit in the policy.

I do feel bad for the Clinton voters and the people who didn't vote and if there was a way to systematically shield them I would favor it. But the Trump/Republican voter who stands to lose thier healthcare if the AHCA passed? They deserve it. They authorized it. The theory that underpins our system of governement holds them responsible for it. I'm treating them like adults.

EDIT: voting Clinton over Trump, or not voting at all was the easiest least morally complicated vote ever cast by anyone in USA, if not world, history. It's literally inexcursible to do so. fuck them. they wrought themselves.


So you think gullible people deserve to suffer and die. Got it.

DefaultI expected ME: Andromeda to review kinda low, but I didn't expect it to drop below 80. I'm totally still willing to pay for a game with a 75-78 on Metacritic, but considering the series, I'm worried that the game doesn't even deserve that and is actually kinda bad.

theVictorianI think when you're dealing with some sort of public rating system on a subjective medium, you need to employ a weighting algorithm. Ideally you show two ratings. One an unweighted average and one that shows what people think who like the things that you like.


My recollection is that is how the Netflix system currently operates (and other people in the thread are confirming that to be the case).
I kind stopped rating movies on there just because at some point, I always felt inconsistent. Three or four stars could mean a lot of different things hem rating. And that didn't help with the "it's so bad it's good genre," which utterly confused my brain when I try to rate it. Should it be a 1 or a 4?

I'd always rate by how much entertainment something gave me, but I'd dock a star for something perfect like Miami Connection as it earning five stars seems wrong somehow.

The Voices is something I saw the cover of and decided to investigate, and its mixed response got me curious.

It's one of those movies where I can completely see its flaws and why it'd garner a divided reaction, but I actually thought it was pretty decent. Ryan Reynolds plays a man with a psychosis whose cat and dog speak to him as he becomes a serial killer. He lives in a childlike state, in a pastel-hued world that feels destined to collapse for him at any moment. More of his past is unearthed throughout the film, and it explains his actions and increases your sympathy for him. It doesn't sugarcoat his violence at all. In fact, the violence is grisly as fuck. This is a dark, dark movie.

Where the movie will divide people is the overally cutesiness of the depiction of this sort of macabre material. But I think this is kind of the movie's strong point. It functions as an unreliable narrator. You're seeing the protagonist from his own perspective, and when the veil is occasionally lifted - by you either seeing him from others' perspectives or when he tries medication - the full bleakness of the story is revealed. I suppose you could call this trite, but style counts for a lot and this movie has it. I can also see how it could be annoying or possibly considered condescending, but that is a judgement call and I found it to be neither.

Visually it's great, and the surround sound really kicks in nicely with voices floating around the room.

I certainly wouldn't recommend it to everyone but I think if you enjoy trying something original and don't have some reflexive hatred for Reynolds then this is worth a try.

Part of Netflix's strategy with the new rating system is that when people are given only two options to rate films, apparently they are far more likely to do so. If Netflix has a good algorithm, this is a way to get more baseline data from which to draw.

I suspected it might be something like this. It's also possible that there'll only be one option like Facebook, meaning that rating only gets active enthusiasm behind it.

?the appallingly cuddly treatment of GWB by the media in recent weeks.

Yeah, what the fuck is going on there? Are we suddenly nostalgic for the guy who started the Endless War?

I think there's never a good time to buy, but there have been some material advances since the last time you built a system, and it would be pretty impressive to you to get into them.

I can't speak for video cards (although the 1080 series seems to manage 4k output so unless you're dedicated to UHD VR output it should last a while), but things like a PCIe SSDs, USB-C functionality and so on are mainstream now. PCIe SSDs are MINDBLOWING. It's like having your whole OS and every program in RAM.
