Yes, it should be legal, but as long as it's not, it needs to be dealt with especially when it's so blatant. Whether a rule is dumb or not, it's wrong for someone to gain an advantage because they're willing to break it. "Everyone uses" pine tar but there's really no doubt the amount he used it was giving him an… » 4/24/14 2:46pm Today 2:46pm

At the risk of sounding like an internet pedant, we definitely don't live in a direct democracy. Strictly speaking unless we're voting on something directly, (as opposed to electing someone who will vote for us), we're at best an indirect, representative democracy, or a republic. Even in a state gov't, where we have… » 4/24/14 2:43pm Today 2:43pm

Is there honestly an actual scientific study anywhere that shows any evidence these work at all? I've checked out their website, and gotten nothing but old wives tales and made up statistics of what ridiculous percentage of Americans suffer some ambiguous "eye strain" related ailment. » 4/24/14 9:18am Today 9:18am

The answer to that is simple. The majority of people don't know they could have it better. The ones that do are "in on it' and would be nearly as big a target as him. The whole country is literally kept int he dark (don't believe me? look at a nighttime satellite shot). This isn't iran, or Syria, or another similar… » 4/23/14 5:22am Yesterday 5:22am

The original comic wasn't a "symptom" of any problems at all. People, and by people I mean idiots, have constructed this elaborate set of rules that really no one who matters ever agreed to that rape is 100% off the table, all of the time, as a topic in any way that isn't a moral rant about how awful it is. The entire… » 4/13/14 9:49pm 4/13/14 9:49pm

It's plain as day. F2P games typically nickel and dime players. The RETURN on our dollar is terrible, and if we want to KEEP enjoying the game, we typically have to KEEP paying. Add on top of that the fact that a huge chunk of the F2P market is truly "pay2win" anyway, and it's no surprise why people hate it. The only… » 4/05/14 2:24pm 4/05/14 2:24pm

I agree completely. I worked for a tech company for a long time that is at the head of it's field. They're corporate products, not games, but the principle is the same. They respected the culture of their acquisitions and it makes them so much stronger. » 3/20/14 2:14pm 3/20/14 2:14pm

"legitimate Russian interests" now there's a laugh. This was at its best moment a vote at gunpoint, and a state-wide hostage taking. So far nearly every piece of reporting the state sponsored lapdogs in the Russian media have done has been unsupportable. » 3/18/14 11:47am 3/18/14 11:47am

It's not just the pattern of "suicide by pilot" but the pattern of suicide in general. Suicides don't typically involve such methodical planning specifically to keep up appearances of not being a suicide. It's not "two" cases but hundreds into thousands, at least. » 3/18/14 11:45am 3/18/14 11:45am

How is this different than any other modeling or "acting" job? "Lesser known" (read: unknown) models and actors who haven't gotten their careers off the ground always scrape by on meager earnings. Is there a reason this might actually surprise people? » 3/03/14 10:32am 3/03/14 10:32am
