    I know, I was just illustrating my own pathology.



    You and your clothesline can go straight to hell! Damn all shops! Schools only on the periphery!

    I was talking about us as a whole, not you, i.e. we need to get our shit in order.



    That reads as stark defeatism to me. If indeed it's "laughably unrealistic" to want equitability short of...

    Grizzling about whinging; initiate infinite loop!

    As I said, Bo Diddley's opinion is salient.



    If we hearken to Bo and "take a look at ourselves" before flinging accusations, then it becomes...

    Is it? I know some landscape architects who seem to be naive greenwashers.

    I favor consolidating the ooze of sprawling samey burbs and their attendant tangle of wires and marts. There's a place...

    I like partaking of niceness but I'm not a hedonist. As Sam Scheffler put it in a recent editorial about the afterlife, I actually care that there will be humans left after I die. I even care more...

    There's mountainous hypocrisy in privileged westerners telling their long-exploited "developing" kin that They're Doing It Wrong. They actually are...

    On topic: the issue isn't really complicated. We won't change things by ignoring them, and especially not by explicitly preventing discussions. Thread closure is an exceptionally-shit way of...

    iirc it was Remo who talked about the dildos, and then only a few seconds (and he's not joining Compo Santo afaik). He said something like "all I heard about why it's good is 'hur-dur you can beat...

    I gotcha.



    I can see sameness (although I think their relationship seems cantankerous enough to be fruitful despite it) but what do you mean by "hipster conservative"? I thought their reaction...

    Worrying in that you didn't like their work on TWD or worrying in that you want them to keep making more TWD or Telltale-style games?

    Kinda neat, this. Vanaman seemed increasingly... I dunno,...

    Here's a thoughtful critique of the recent Anguera et al. study to which the NYT refers: 19 questions about video games, multitasking, and aging (a HI-BAR commentary on a new Nature paper).

    Yeah, didin't notice it was a 670; it generally comes out like a few frames ahead of the 760 in Ryan's tests. Still, if he's gaming on both monitors then neither card would drive it to 60 FPS...

    You don't game on both monitors, do you? A single 760 will not get you 60 consistent FPS at 3.5 megapixels without cutting image quality. If you only game on one of your monitors at a time a 760 is...

    Surely if you wanted to best-compensate a developer in monetary terms (short of just sending them extra money) you'd buy the game from their own DD service and then torrent it to save them fractional...

    Fuck me, that was incredible; I mention honesty making it hard for concern trolling to hide and then what happens? QED in four minutes flat.

    It's fine, and yes that is my complaint.

    I quite like Nalano but the ability to call each other fucks isn't that important to me. I just don't care. I really don't. As I've said in other forums,...

    No, I won't, but I haven't been flinging invective around anyway; I'm just not bothered by it. Excellence in my mind is giving people the benefit of the doubt, not being prissy.

    Politeness-frippery being the order of the day is clear.

    I'm familiar with that tired refrain and I disagree just as tiredly.

    That'll mean more consolidation of power & money in corporations but AMERICA WILL LOVE THAT.
