While I am wholly in favor of paying people living wages, he's exactly right. Why in the world would we trust some poor min wage making Best Buy Geek Squad guy to fix our computers and technical devices for nearly the same pay as the guy whose only job is to dump fries in the fryer and put frozen meat on a searing… » 12/08/14 6:18pm 12/08/14 6:18pm

Actually, in the description of the YouTube video, the driver is referred to as 'she'. As in:

"He helped the driver of silver BMW without knowing that *she* damaged his car before he arrived. *She* drove away without saying anything."

Color me shocked. Women are just awful drivers. » 12/08/14 1:12am 12/08/14 1:12am

It's not a really bad idea. I mean, like you said, we literally do not know what human tech will be advanced to in even 200 years. 200 years ago in 1814 we were fucking around with horses as a means of transport, had barely made it to the West Coast of the United States, and the highest technology we had on Earth was… » 11/30/14 9:57am 11/30/14 9:57am

You say 'commit a homicide' as though a police officer has no reason to do so to a black person living in Chicago. It is highly likely that whenever a policeman shoots a black person in Chicago, the black person was doing something to justify the shooting, a la Michael Brown. » 11/25/14 2:04pm 11/25/14 2:04pm

Do you understand how much threat a nearly 300 pound man is? Particular if that 300 pounds is spread over 6 foot 4 inches of frame? He hit the officer, and he tried to take his firearm until the officer managed to shoot him. At that point, he'd already proven himself dangerous. So yes, unarmed doesn't mean not… » 11/25/14 9:41am 11/25/14 9:41am

Well, last I checked, this convenience store didn't try to take a gun from an officer. Until it does attempt to do so, the trashing of this man's livelihood is in fact less justifiable than Michael Brown's death. Seriously, you guys are Gawker are making *way* too big a deal out of all this shit. » 11/25/14 9:09am 11/25/14 9:09am

Gawker Media will always claim to be the newest, best source of up to the minute news, aka 'gossip' in their words, but when anyone ever calls them on anything remotely resembling journalistic integrity, of which they have absolutely none, they get all offended and go 'NO NO we're not a news site, we never intended to… » 11/25/14 6:00am 11/25/14 6:00am

Well, lets assume you're talking to someone outside of your drivers side window. Are you facing straight forward at the windshield, or have you turned your head to talk to them? In the case that you've turned your head to talk to them, which side is more open? The right side, or the left side, which would be harder to… » 11/25/14 3:21am 11/25/14 3:21am

Well, you might be waiting a while. It wasn't promised in 6.1, in fact, the common rumor going around is no flying at all. Which, as a long time player is FANTASTIC. Best thing they've ever done for the game. The flight paths are direct, 2 hearthstones (one for the garrison) give you easy access wherever you want to… » 11/20/14 12:05pm 11/20/14 12:05pm

Yeah, but in this case, no one gets hassled. I click the torrent at pirate bay, it downloads, I mount the ISO, install the game, copy the crack. Incredibly easy, because afterwards I don't deal with any of the DRM hassles. Literally, only paying customers are subjected to the uPlay client and other such bs. » 11/13/14 10:46am 11/13/14 10:46am
