No it isn't, calm down.

ETA: Sorry your stepdad was a piece of shit.  You should garrote him with an extension cord.

I cannot believe how much time cable news is wasting on the "Donald Trump is Fat!" breaking news.  How fucking stupid are these people?  It was on all morning, still going.

I watched Bladerunner 2049 last night.  Really great movie.  The cinematography was even better on my TV than in the theater (I think I sat too close in the theater).  It's long, but worth every minute.

anyways the issue to me is not whether Manning is a traitor. The issue is that this was clearly severely bad judgment on her part, and someone who will not give the firth thought to consequence is not someone you want making important decisions.

I often give the Firth a thought.  He's dreamy.  :awgee:

realtalk, I don't hate her and I have mixed feelings about the leaks, but I also think her running for Senate is really fucking dumb.
realtalk, she was duped by an agent of Putinist Russia and did something ridiculously stupid and naive which did some serious damage to the international order. Whether you want to lay the Arab Spring and the backlash against pro-Democracy Arab Spring protesters at her feet or just recognize that she destabilized an already shitty situation allowing bad actors to act freely, I seriously just don't see any way I'd trust her with a butterknife let alone the sorts of high level information she'd be handling if she ended up on any senate committees.

Go back and read the chat logs when she was looking for people to leak this to. She's not playing with a full deck of cards.  Which is why the prospect of her in the Senate should be as disturbing as the prospect of Trump in the White House.

If the dems actually endorse her on the ticket they will regret it for 100 years.

Chelsea Manning is a fucking whack job lunatic, an unqualified idiot, and a mentally unhinged asshat who gave away secrets in a bid for attention.  Anyone who votes for her is a fucking moron and should be rounded up and placed in a gulag for reeducation, preferably via tear gas and fire hose.

Are you the type of adult to visit the Star Wars show at Disney World?  Did you sign up to be a Jedi?

Ty here is how they can drop bombs

MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD!

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

I wonder why they didn't mention that in the movie.  They must have been too busy with their ethnic casting.

It was a mess.  People are being nice to it because it was Star Wars. Objectively, a pretty low-end film.

Did you have to open loot boxes at points to advance the plot?

That would have made it better.

Yakuza 0 is awesome.

The bow was pretty useful in a lot of situations.  Even in the bigger fight setpieces (e.g., the big plaza with all the shops, hotel, etc. where Ellie snipes from the balcony), it was great for taking out certain enemies ahead of time, even for shorter distance stuff where you were holed up in cover.

As I recall, they are useless on bloaters.  Those fights were the worst, and come down to shitty enemy design.  It is the only complaint I have with regards to the game.  Those guys are just bullet sponges, hence the shotgun and Molotovs.

I agree you should not use the bow on the three bloaters you encounter in the game.

You're just scared of guns.

I saw that in game somewhere. I'll try to remember to always keep a brick on me because there seems to be bricks and bottles laying around everywhere.

Oh, any gun upgrading advice? Do you find any stats must haves? I usually focus on loading speed and magazine capacity first.

It depends on how you play.  Pick one handgun and upgrade it, and upgrade the shotgun as high as you can get it because it is OP'd and will absolutely wreck things.  If you care about long-distance stealth, the bow is the sensible choice but to be honest, I never felt like I needed to care about long-distance stealth.  There are a few points in the game where you are forced to fight and stealth is not an option.  So, be ready to rumble.

After the initial clicker area I was in the museum where there were 3 or 4 clickers in a small area. I bashed one to death with a stick before I knew how many were in the other rooms and got swarmed and killed. So next try I hit the first one with a molotov and the rest ran into the fire and burned to death. That was fun.

Yeah, Tess "leaves" . . . didn't want to get too spoilery. ;)

eta: I like the stealth now that I've remembered what button puts me in stealth mode.

One thing to remember -- even though they don't call this out in the game -- is that you can use a brick to kill clickers.  Select the brick as a weapon and do a regular melee attack.  Joel will attack with the brick in his hand and if you keep attacking, you'll bash the clicker's head in.  It works in a pinch if you have no shivs or clubs.

Oh man, have you guys seen the teaser for From Software's new game?

YES I HAVE THANKS FOR ASKING

I have a feeling it is a new Tenchu game.  It is not a Dark Souls or Bloodborne.  There is a Japanese flute, Japanese arrow, etc.   Plus they have a long history with the franchise, having released a bunch of PSP/Nintendo DS titles under it.

you son of a bitch

Joel doesn't get bitten, Bart is trolling you.

Also, you are pretty early.  Get good, scrubbo.   What difficulty level do you have it at?  You could always drop it down.

On the other hand

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

really enjoyed it - I know Besson is an acquired taste, idiosyncratic storylines, tendency to introduce cheesy humour, but he also has a huge vision and creates amazing visuals, plus he's always had strong and very likeable female leads and I admire his singular approach. I love all his movies.

I saw this on the plane last week, it was pretty fucking terrible.  Why on Earth did they try to sell that scrawny little ugly dude with a weird voice as some kind of heroic secret agent space agent?  He was utterly unbelievable.  And his relationship with Cara Delvignginginginge was tacky and childish.

Also a more faithful translation of "Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who have trespassed against us" is "You fucked with me, now it's a must that I fuck with you."

Some churches say "Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors"

... or something like that. 

Well that kind of language just won't do.

your mom is focus group tested nerdbait

anyway, let's be real, i want a character who is going to fucking get to work on my farm

Sounds like you need a man. :smug:

ETA: Though as I said before, you should get gay married if that's what you want.  Just find a dude and string him along into the friendzone. Then hand him a pick axe.

Okay, I will hand him a pick axe in his skull. :mason:

I enjoy a challenge, so I'm going after the alcoholic sad sack who is good at taking care of the farm animals.

And you said you didn't misss me . . .
