    Women have to meet a lower legal threshold than men do to justify the use of lethal force. As such you should not seek to victimize women because they can totally shoot your dumb ass dead and skate on it. I hope she inspires a thousand women to go get their concealed carry permit.

    MTG: Arena

    There's another way of looking at it. Without a decent F2P ecosystem the whales don't have as many people to to leverage their wallet against. If they can't leverage their wallet they'll move on to something else. A fair model in a decent game that provides the pauper with a reasonable shot at...

    Maybe some of the suits were finally convinced that this F2P stuff can bring in gigantic piles of cash if you stop being cunts about your model.

    I wish I was a news anchor so I could report on these very serious stories as an excuse to spread the fucking goddamn dankest memes. Yes, it is integral to the authenticity of my segment that I show Macho Ma'am Tranny Savage. I'd interview these wingnuts all day every day. I don't give a fuck.

    The set has a lot of cards that are hard to assess in a vacuum but good things at attractive costs. Pteramander could be good? Mass Manipulation is cheaper than that effect usually is. Is that enough? Sphinx of Foresight is another pregame effect. Is that a tipping point? Is the effect powerful...

    World of Warcraft: BFA

    I started back up as I wanted to see the Alliance side of things. The leveling changes combined with the 30% exp bonus for turning on warmode as Alliance mostly fix my prior complaints on the subject. The paladin I'm leveling now is going just about as quick as the one I leveled years ago during...

    Bird Box (2018)

    If they weren't going to do anything else with that concept than there wasn't any reason to introduce it. You could have done something where the crazies have cell phone footage of the things and that's one of the ways that it spreads. Someone uploaded some video and it got linked on 4Chan and...

    That sounds terrible. I hope the Democrats do what is right and provide funding for the wall. The consequences of the shutdown surely outweigh a mere five billion dollars.

    When the one assembly person attacks him personally and the project as just a means for him to enrich himself is where I really get pissed off. He just wants to build this apartment complex to get richer! BOO HIM BOOOO. There's just so many things packed into that statement. He's the wrong...

    The idea is already planted. You aren't going to be able to un-ring that bell. What Trump does or does not do is not going to have any effect on whatever bullshit the next guy in office tries to pull.

    I figure she's really quoting the movie. Rorschach, partly with some dialogue changes but mostly from Jackie Earle Haley's performance, comes off as fairly sympathetic in Snyder's adaptation. Here is why you need to stick it out in the United States of America - Although things may go...

    When I first saw that I was convinced that the medical droid was going to kill her. There was going to be a close up on the droid's instrument arm, a tiny blade would appear, and a small yet lethal incision made. Oh no, I can't stop the bleeding I caused! Danger Will Robinson, danger! Not only...

    That's a fine battle to have though. Clearly determined authority with legitimate use of power undermined by a biased judiciary. You pick every one of those fights you can. You may not be able to excise that cancer but you can sure as fuck make everyone look at it.

    The fundamental problem I have with all deals is that Schumer and Pelosi have both established several times over that they have no qualms about negotiating in bad faith. Trump negotiated a new trade deal with Mexico and a new trade deal with Canada and he did that because everyone wanted to...

    The optimal play would have been to step down in the first week of Obama's second term.

    It never made sense to put her under the knife to begin with. She was going to be 86 in March. The chances her dying from the surgery/recovery are almost certainly higher than he dying from whatever they took out.

    Skimming her Wikipedia entry she seems to have done about nothing? Went to school, worked for a few Republican campaigns, became professional commentator. She's a talking head. That's it. Likes Jeb Bush and demonizes stay at home mothers? She sounds lovely.

    My read on it is that she prepped her emery board this segment as a sort "womp womp" stunt that would go viral and she would then receive praise. It's childish and narcissistic. My hunch is also that she knew she wanted to do her little move but didn't know when she would have a chance to do so...

    Yes, eye witness testimony is often shitty. That is a stone cold fact. Notice how this is only brought up now? It was a drug deal that went bad, everyone knew each other and an innocent was killed. The crime is, sadly, completely mundane. A witness lying isn't unusual nor is a witness just...

    Hillary stepping down for health issues and a Biden/Warren ticket may have won the day but that door has been closed forever. I'm sure he feels like he would have won and that he will win in 2020 but he'll doom the Democrats if he gets the nomination. The gender cap in sentencing is 10x the...

    You could make it super modular and allow the trading of individual characters between players, max level characters as their own in-game currency. On a raid you could treat all the characters brought along as a combined pool and then dole out control as part of the organizing. When a starting...
