And what would that mean?

This is what it would mean...

I recently finished the FF VII Remake. Saddam forced me to watch the review by Dunkey, who aside from a nails-on-chalkboard kind of voice is mostly accurate in his review so I won't bother rehashing it. Except the combat system is garbage and anyone who disagrees is wrong.

I am playing through the original FF VII again. In reflection on the remake, I mostly enjoy all of the extra exposition and backstories, I just hate how tedious is it to progress through the game to get to those moments.

I'm sure I have more to say, but I guess I'll release it in two additional installments over the next five years.

Quit trying to undermine my wokeness, junker. Thork was clearly bringing up Palin to brag about how hot she supposedly is, and it was a perfectly relevant response to shoot that idea down. You're the only one talking about penises.

Your first problem was engaging Thork in any topic, ever.

Your last problem is pretending that what you said isn't problematic. Stop trying to deflect and just own it.

Prime example of liberalism, folks.

I don't find Sarah Palin attractive at all
What an incredibly weird thing to say. You do know women don't exist to make you tingly, right?

Yes, I'm sure it's her intelligence and integrity that Thork admires about her, how dare honk assume he was talking about her tits.

I mean, he could have made that point without the misogynistic objectification of how she makes his penis feel...

Anyway, the thread also isn't about Sarah Palin...

I share your bitter disappointment for race.  I haven't followed what happened with this surveillance vote.  Regarding Biden, Trump, Sanders etc, all I can say is don't let perfect be the enemy of good.
Since Sanders isn't relevant anymore, saying "don't let terrible be the enemy of abysmal" is a more accurate reflection of the current situation.

You could join the GOP.
I did that when I was 18. And then I stopped be a moron shortly thereafter.

Anyone think the emoluments lawsuit against Trump is going to go anywhere? Seems like another shit slinging contest despite the merits.
There is already a Trump thread. This thread is to remind everyone how worthless liberals are.

If he isn't dead by then, anyway. This should make totallackey happy, but I am unequivocally renouncing any support for Bernard. I mostly gave up on him after he endorsed rapist Joe Biden, but missing a rather important amendment vote is the proverbial straw.

Also Dianne Feinstein can get fucked. Good job making Rand Paul look like the sane one in congress, dipshits. Guess it is time to go full Libertarian or AnCap.

Neolibs, shitlibs, (basically anyone who identifies as a liberal) don't @ me and also get fucked.

I asked you to post in good faith, and it was precisely to prevent these sort of non-arguments. Behave.

I do believe I’m posting in good faith. I’m not trying to muddy the waters or create conflict.

^ the world of BRrollin...equals...

...but I am more concerned with my beliefs being true :)

Sorry...I ain't buyin...

totallackey, while I agree with you, this isn't the thread or forum for it.

QED, you can drop the act of "I only want to get to the bottom of it..." Your history and behavior are well known. It seems you are being allowed to post for now, even though your past account was permanently banned for the same nonsense. Anyway, there won't be a long process of warnings and short bans, it will just be a permaban of this alt account in accordance with rule 8.

On the notion of galaxy brains and good genes:

Quote from: Donald J. Trump
A question that probably some of you are thinking of if you’re totally into that world, which I find to be very interesting. So supposing we hit the body with a tremendous — whether it’s ultraviolet or very powerful light. And I think you said that hasn’t been checked, but you’re going test it. Supposing you brought the light inside the body, which you can do either through the skin or in some other way.

And I think you said you’re going test that too. Sounds interesting. And then I see the disinfectant where it knocks it out in a minute. One minute. And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning. Because you see it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number in the lungs. It would be interesting to check you’re going have to use medical doctors with that, but it sounds interesting to me. And so we’ll see. But the whole concept of the light, the way it kills it in one minute, that’s pretty powerful

We've had about 20 pages of lies about rocket BS, having nothing to do with the OP thread. Oh NASA and its minions lie too !!! Have some Covid-19, breathe deep. I'll bring you back on topic just as soon as you digest some truth...K

How about just staying on topic now and not posting unrelated videos?

I really hope he doesn't run again in 2024. He's going to end up tearing the party apart.

I hope so.
The Democratic party is garbage.

Sean is the only one in the thread who gets it. Unless garygreen has posted, he also gets it.

You also seem to attribute this alleged group of support as the reason Trump won.
No, I really didn't. You invented that wholesale.

Voting for character is also where you get the diehard Bernie fans who don't vote democrat or vote Trump out of spite for their person not making the ticket. They become so obsessed with character and the person that they don't realize that they're meant to be voting for policy. It happened in 2016 too.

Yeah, that was a real stretch I made there based on the exact words that you used...

If you want 'beliefs that I am willing to share,' stick to what I actually said.
1. To claim that all, or even 99%, of any politician's supporters do so strictly for policy is to have an unreasonably optimistic view of the world.
So your first belief is about something no one has claimed. Got it.

2. The democratic system in the US is rigged to favor those that win a popularity contest more than a political contest, charisma and some degree of identity are required to have a hope to get anywhere. You can have policies that somehow everyone agrees with but if you drone them in a monotone you're going to lose to someone who becomes a meme.
Turns out some people aren't okay with that. Imagine having some sort of convictions or moral compass and making decisions based on that. But yes, paying lip service to the rigged system makes you seem enlightened so may as well stop there.

3. Biden is an ass. Trump is worse. The US has a two-party system so realistically they are the only choices.
Corrupt rapists who drone brown people in the middle east and keep kids in cages at the Mexico border. You are going to have to do some work to convince anyone Biden is different than Trump. Because aside from personality they are two sides of the same coin.

4. People that become attached to a person rather than policies make decisions based on personal attachment and not what the country needs. If someone beat your fave to the ticket, you're going to be biased against them, and if you're in a position where you take their victory personally, you're going to be less likely to vote for them.
I guess it is important that this isn't some sort of rampant problem. But you should definitely keep droning on about it like it actually makes an impact.

I made a post about how Biden and Trump are not equally bad, and that I don't expect to like the person I elect into office. That was it. That was literally it.
They are equally bad. That is it. It is literally it.

I didn't say Bernie didn't have people that supported him for his policies

That is right, you didn't. You focused squarely on people voting for a person/character, and are now acting shocked with some sort of logical follow up to the opinion you put out there. If this group of people even exists (which I doubt you have any evidence of), they would be a rather small minority. The vast majority of Bernie's support is from the policy. Writing a long paragraph about something that doesn't matter adds nothing to the conversation. You also seem to attribute this alleged group of support as the reason Trump won. It is beyond asinine. Trump won in 2016 because Hillary and the DNC ran an absolute garbage campaign, not because of some boogeymen Bernie supporters.

At this point, there is no reason to even engage you in the topic since you don't apparently hold any beliefs that you are willing to share because then you may actually be asked to defend them. It is much easier just to pretend you didn't imply anything regardless of the context of the rest of your post and just point out every literal thing you did not say. A classic example of neoliberal centrist gibberish.

There are three questions I ask of any political candidate.
1. Do I agree with what this person has stated they want to do?
2. Do I believe this person will actually set out to enact what they have claimed?
3. Do I believe this person has any chance of actually getting into a position to enact their policies?

Imagine thinking Biden has an actual chance to get elected... Also, have you read Biden's policies lately? He jammed a bunch of stuff in there to sound progressive and there is zero chance he would pursue any of it if somehow he miraculously beat Trump.

Voting for character is also where you get the diehard Bernie fans who don't vote democrat or vote Trump out of spite for their person not making the ticket. They become so obsessed with character and the person that they don't realize that they're meant to be voting for policy. It happened in 2016 too.

Bernie's support comes from his policies. It is completely out of touch and asinine to have the opinion people are devoted to Bernie's "character" and not the cause (aka his policy agenda). In the world of RNC and DNC dog and pony shows I know that can be a little startling.  The only people the DNC have to blame for their 2016 loss and their upcoming 2020 loss are themselves. I am sure after this one they will take some time to reflect and realize they need to change. Or they will just keep repeating the same errors over and over again because a Trump presidency is better for them than someone like Bernie. Aside from this hot take non-sequitur of yours, you should actually go back and look into 2016. I get the feeling your opinion on that is as wrong as most of the stuff you have said so far.

I don't know how seriously to take reddit, but I've already seen a number of angry Bernie supporters vow to never vote for Biden, and even a few say they'll vote for Trump in protest. It's insane.

Does it really matter which rapist they vote for? Probably better not to vote for any rapist.

My real issue is the gameplay. I don't like what they've done here to differentiate it from the last game. ...the combat is in every way harder, wilder, and more chaotic, with more enemies, more waves of enemies, more enemies with particular weaknesses you need to remember to exploit, and so on. The ammunition you can carry is extremely limited, too, and it feels like a cheap handicap to pump up the game's difficulty.

It is nearly the same game as before... You have levels with bad guys who spawn in the same place. Memorize the pattern and advance. Bad guys get progressively harder. The only wrench in that is the inferno baddie that keeps spawning other enemies until you off him. Ammo is easily upgraded (definitely not """extremely""" limited) and stocked through literally one different game mechanic. Your ideas on how the game could have been better would have made the whole thing a dumpster fire. Even if the game had some of those absolutely terrible and rudimentary mechanics you would complain that it deviates too far from its predecessor.

You also keep trying to tie this into to your other rants about different capeshit issues, and it makes absolutely no sense no matter how many times you repeat it. We get it, you want creative control over Batman. It just isn't going to happen. The rest of your rant is internet critic amateur hour, but it is the same type of thing found in the majority of your reviews so nothing new there.

I can't hold your hand through understanding Relativity. Clearly you aren't grasping one of the pillars of the theory, which is that in any FoR, an observer in said frame measures the same value for c. Even if that observer is accelerating with respect to another observer. And there is no law that prevents something from undergoing constant acceleration indefinitely. The hypothetical object that is constantly accelerating never exceeds c from its own frame. It is only from outside frames that relativistic effects on its observed velocity would be observed. You need to come to terms with how this all works before you start an argument that is nonsense.

I dont need HAND HOLDING


p1      E        p2

if E is accelerating always toward P2

then P1 sees E moving away at a constant acceleration of  10 m/s^2

but  E cant move faster than C  THIS IS  basic tenant of relativity .. i dont need to argue it it is 

so when the E reaches  the speed of C it is essentially NOT ACCELERATING


just moving at C does not create a force down sorrry

the reason  YOU FEEL A FORCE DOWN in an elevator is  BECAUSE THERE IS  gravity  which UNIVERSAL acceleration is supposed to  REPLACE

I HAVE ALSO SHOWN  that  with the equations  from RELATITIVITY THAT THE  FE'S  USE  to prove the validity of UA

that  dv/dt = g (1 - v^2/c^2)^(3/2)

notice that as  v approaches c  that   the  portion under the exponent is  near 0

a number near 0 to any power is a smaller number near 0


Keep your whining rants in the Angry Ranting forum. See the forum rules if you need further details. Warned.

Also, if you are going to claim to understand relativity, in this case SR, then maybe you should try using the proper equation instead of sticking with classical mechanics. That, and learning how a FoR works, should help keep you from being as proudly ignorant as you are here. It is embarrassing to both you and your fellow RErs.

DOOM Eternal 10/10 GOTY 2020

tbh it probably isn't even the best game released on 20 March, 2020...

I haven't completed it yet but so far there isn't anything that is an improvement on the previous game.

I beat D O O M last night. Opinion the same as above.
