At the same age I started using a computer...I would consider backing up date computer basics 101.

Hogron555 4 points

What age did you start using a computer? I started at what, maybe age 8? Don't think that backing up your computer is something your average kid is going to be interested in, especially not if any kind of knowledge about it was a lot less accessible on the web.

If you were old enough, and tech savvy enough, to be using NoScript, you should be old enough to make backups.

Hogron555 2 points

Apparently not. I wouldn't say using NoScript requires someone to be particularly tech savy too. But it's interesting you're avoiding my question so hard all the while not actually contributing anything to the post other than trying to shit talk someone for not backing up his browser at an early age.

I'd love to see the parameters and sample description that resulted in Gallup thinking they can make a inference of global leadership.

  1. What is your background in human research surveying? Because I honestly doubt that you will be able to make any qualified judgement about it anyways unless you have quite a lot of experience in this field.

  2. The article leads to you a page where you can get them. Either you didn't read the article properly or I'm not sure what your issue is. Are you too lazy to fill out the form or what?

Man I'm so fucking torn between supporting G2 or Schalke 04, both have been pumping out great content. Guess I will just have to root for both.

How do deathly enemies field an Olympic caliber hockey team with a month to go after recently beefing up border defenses and barbed rhetoric towards each other?

Something is weird about this.

Do you realise that these "deathly enemies" are one people?

Longer form satire is allowed under our rules. Memes in videos (like pasted heads) are explicitly not allowed.

Hogron555 11 points

There are papaya posts that take less time to read than it takes to watch this video. Both should be removed imo.

Aww that poor, poor billionaire. He should be in tears for how he treats his workers. When the guy says something that a lot of people have been baffling on about for a long time and have been ignored, suddenly it gets to the front page. Elon Musk could talk about how red solo cups are the industry that will save mankind and he would get like 5k upvotes and all of reddit rubbing one off in a circle around him.

Do you think they (or anyone else for that matter) care if you believe it or not?

Lmao, you go to a post about VW announcing a €70 billion investment into EVs to shit on VW? Do you love ICEs so much that you can't stomach it that companies are investing billions into EVs? Pathetic.

If 10,000 people believe it and don't buy a VW, then yes, VW will care.

That's not the case buddy:

I couldn't give a shit what you think VW stooge.

Yeah totally, obviously you care so little about what I think that my comment got you so riled up that you're resorting to name-calling. Interesting definition of "I couldn't give a shit" you have there.

Taking a page out of Farage's book I suppose?

The question of a second referendum was raised by Mr Farage in an interview with the Mirror in which he said: "In a 52-48 referendum this would be unfinished business by a long way."

I just hope that the next big game will explore a territory as huge as Egypt is (or something in the ballpark) - I really liked the huge open world direction of ACO.

I don't think it fits AC very well to be honest. Compare Unity to Origins.

In Unity, you had a smaller but much more detailed setting. You could enter a lot of buildings, the city was dense and crowded and the scale of the buildings was just top notch - places like the Notre Dame were so detailed that they felt like their own little world. Not to mention that the parkour mechanics were more complex.

In Origins, sure you had a larger world, but it was less detailed. Even Alexandria, which was one of the largest cities of the Roman Empire, felt pretty small. You could enter less buildings, the cities were less detailed (because Ubisoft could obviously put less time in each city due to the massive size of the world) and the parkour mechanics were downgraded.

Origins was a good game but it just felt like an open-world RPG with a bit more parkour than other RPG games. Unity may have been smaller and had its own share of problems like having too little quests and having a more buggy release, but the setting and gameplay felt much more like what an ideal AC game would look like for me.

What are your experiences with US border control? I find them pretty easy to deal with- I think entering the EU is far more invasive. I’m sure we have different experiences so I’d like to hear how yours differs from mine.

Edit- will you people responding please stop arguing with me? My experiences happened, if you don’t believe me then that isn’t my problem- I won’t try to convince you.

And seriously, stop bending over backwards to attack the US or defend the EU- If your experiences differ from mine then that’s all you need to say. There is no need for tangential rants about American racism.

Hogron555 32 points

I think entering the EU is far more invasive.

  1. Based on your comment history you are from the US, right? So when you go to the EU, you enter as a non-citizen. When you enter the US, you enter as a citizen. How do you think you can objectively compare those two?

  2. What are your experiences with EU border control that you think it is "far more invasive"?

All the more reason I want to see Tesla stick it to them now

You're hoping that the only car manufacturer in the western world that forbids their employees to join a union and that is known for subpar wages "sticks it to those" who treat their employees better? Okay.

Well in that case why are you not rooting for BYD? They are the largest EV manufacturer in the world.

One unfortunate thing is that one of the most prominent activists against Russia's dictator is the former World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov, which leads to some misunderstandings.

Incidentally, Kaspersky sponsors international chess tournaments, which is a sure sign it's a Putin client company (the Kremlin corrupted the world chess federation years ago, leading to the situation whereby Kasparov quit playing chess to become a political activist).

Hogron555 46 points

That's not true, Kasparov didn't quit chess to become an activist.

Kasparov announced on 10 March 2005 that he would retire from serious competitive chess. He cited as the reason a lack of personal goals in the chess world (he commented when winning the Russian championship in 2004 that it had been the last major title he had never won outright) and expressed frustration at the failure to reunify the world championship.

He was also engaged in politics long before he retired from Chess.
