Alice in Chains Unplugged - Nutshell (unplugged) [Grunge] by silvera6969 in Music

[–]neosporin 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This show is a bitter-sweet one. On one hand, you get to hear the band at their best, but on the other, you see and hear the effect that Layne's drug addiction has had on him. From things like his demeanor or his teeth in videos of this show, it's painfully clear how the addiction ravaged away at the man, and to think it got even worse before the end... You wouldn't wish it on anyone.

Microsoft releases Windows Defender extension for Google Chrome browser by pradeepviswav in tech

I guess the fact that it's owned by a large company. At any time, uBlock could become like every other ad blocker before it by selling your browser activity and information to data miners. Although I'm not sure if giving that information to Microsoft is any better.

You can always tell the real libertarians from the bandwagon populist memers through constructive posts like this.

Believe it or not, that's actually relatively common in Canada when it comes to leaders of parties. Most often, an MP in a safe riding will give up their seat.

Brooklyn Nine Nine, the best sitcom on television, is at risk of getting cancelled. If you don't already watch the show, you need to start. Here's a clip from tonight's episode. by DalmPalm in videos

Fox content is removed on YT before it is even published. The only legitimate clips you'll find of Fox shows are posted by Fox themselves. Strange that people are expecting pirated clips in a thread about not pirating the show.

$1,000 shipping and handling to ship from Attawapiskat. That's where they get you.

Canada to bolster multicultural programs across the country to combat rise of ultra-nationalist movements and right-wing extremism, vows to protect multiculturalism as "cornerstone of Canadian identity" by [deleted] in worldnews

[–]neosporin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Suburb? It's the downtown core, and I linked that article because it referred to previous protests that have been causing damage upwards of $100k in the same area. You can find more with a simple Google News search. It's the same situation in most cities in the GTHA. Although something leads me to believe you don't know much at all about the inner cities within this metropolitan area if you believe this to be a suburb... I work throughout the largest cities in Canada and I can tell you there is a noticeable trend, regardless of what you're seeing from your bedroom window.

I don't know, things seem to be ramping up here in Ontario, at least in major cities surrounding Toronto. The protests now are spilling into main streets and are often violent, with heavy vandalism on downtown core businesses.

I would think factories are the factories of the information age.

I count no less than 10 partisan hot takes on this sub's front page right now. by AvroLancaster in ontario

It has more to do with moderation. OntarioPolitics and CanadaPolitics seem to be doing fine removing sensationalized submissions, whereas the mods here care more about the illusion of an active community.

Yes, but not everyone gets to see your mother turning that much.

Common sense would indicate that, given the number of upboats, some people saw one thing while other people saw another. Tough concept.

Sick render distance by Pyronettic in gaming

[–]neosporin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You don't know what you're talking about. None of that matters because that is the frame rate of the GIF. Data is only present in those frames at that interval, nothing in-between. The blurring applied and compression artifacts in each frame don't increase the amount of data, they just distort it enough to fool those who don't know what they're looking for.

It was an exaggeration, but since you're struggling to see the point, I'll help you out a bit. The GIF is 5 seconds long and has 127 frames, which is 25 FPS. You consider that smooth?

Nah, this is 100% staged. It's so obvious.
