Before she became a caricature with straightened hair.
I'm reading this book right now that starts off with several chapters of pretty well-supported claims regarding several diet and health issues, but once it gets into GMOs it's surprisingly sparse on actual research to support the claims. I can't help but think that someone who spent the majority of his book reasonably well-read and knowledgable wouldn't just include a chapter where he betrays that clout he's built up if there wasn't something to be said about his words. So, what are the actual facts surrounding GMOs? How do they affect overall health? What about muscle growth?
I'm sick of these people who are ignorant of facts--the kind that diss vegetarians because we care about animals or the environment. These fools have bought into the lies and propoganda put out there by the douche bags running the meat industry--the same douche bags who happen to be some of the country's most powerful lobbyists. There was that bullshit ad campaign that they ran a while ago: "Beef, it's what's for dinner." Yeah, beef's for dinner, but colon cancer, arterial slerosis, high blood pressure, animal cruelty and a destroyed planet are your karmic desert.
Now this is how you start a fucking book.

There's a lot of wasted space on the sides of the actual text location. Names and titles fit better for some reason (they look centered at 150%), and the site is no longer hard to read for me.
Also, another suggestion that would be appreciated would be an image auto downsizer to fit pictures on one screen. Even at the regular zoom, my photos aren't fully-visible. It seems like the site was designed with mobile users in mind.
I realise these are all relatively easy fixes on my part, but just thought I'd throw these out there on the off chance they're easy to implement or whatever.
To me, the site just looks cleaner at 150%. The subforums are nicely spaced.. everything just has a nicer look.
She's this small girl who works at the front desk. she has a quiet demeanor but she doesn't lack confidence. it's a very familiar disposition. i dunno there's just something i find welcoming about her. considering i've only ever worked with 40 year old dudes it's uncharted territory for me.
it was pretty embarassing when i came back from work with mayonaise on my face and she pointed it out lol, but i played it off well enough and she didn't really seem to think anything of it. it came off as endearing.
side note, a lot of the girls thought i was 23+ years old. i got a 28 years old from one girl. that was pretty cool.

His name is "TierZoo," and what he does is organise and examine animals and animal types within a competitive gaming context, ranking certain animal families the same way you would the Melee character list. For example, his "Optimising the Snake Build":
"The Boa constrictor is the only snake build classified as a "tank," utilising a high defense stat and thick, scaley hide. More importantly for a snake than its defense, is its unparalled grab game. A well-specced constrictor build can zero-to-death any player they manage to grab. If we compare the constrictor's grab to other high-level grabs, we can see that it is one of the best available in the game.
My favourite so far is the "Spider Tier List" for sure.
"Also in 'B Tier,' we've got another spider which uses its web in an interesting way: as a ranged, mobility debuff. The Spitting Spider can launch sticky webs at high speeds. This is particularly useful for dealing with more mobile builds when you don't want to just camp. This move is powerful if your opponent isn't expecting it, but since it has a lot of end lag, if your opponent evades it, they'll get a free punish."
If you've played, what would you say the game needs to improve upon or could do better in the sequel? What's holding the game back from being flawless, and if you can think of one, what's the best solution to this problem?
I want to make a video addressing some of my issues with the game and would like to hear some more problems I've maybe missed. Here's what I have so far (including potential fixes that I'll address in my video):
-Menu usage (equipment swapping, healing, environmental changes, etc.)
-weapon degradation having no fix
-Climbing in the rain having no fix
-horse controls (they suck, Verb)
-Armour levelling is just busy work and too linear
-collectibles are too plentiful not to have some sort of recording process per area. this includes hinox and talus locations
-amiibo armour acquisition is fucking cancer

...it might be kind of fun to have a discussion on it. Having recently dabbled a little into Christianity's history I've acquired somewhat of a taste for its historical significance, even if I don't really care for the teachings all that much.
Where do you stand on the issue? Do you think Luther had the right idea branching off from the Catholic church following his excommunication, or do you think he should have stuck with the church to minimise the division within the faith?
For me, Luther's heart was in the right place but he set a bad precedent for the religion itself. After 1500 years of consistency and unity, tradition was thrown out the window and it's only snowballed since. Any time a church disagrees on one issue or another they break off to form their own denomination with little consequence. Additionally I think the focus on gracious works the Catholic church has is absolutely necessary to encourage a Christian lifestyle.
i pick up.
"who is this"
"uhh, i think you have the wrong number buddy. who are you lookin for?"
"Well im Jak Smith"
"Jak Smith?! It's Dawson Smith! Im pretty drunk and was trying to call my brother and thought you were him playing a joke on me but holy shit! How are you?"
this was an awesome surprise. theyre these twins ive known forever that i havent seen in ages. we used to be close as shit back in the day and i recently had a random dream that they came over so its such a weird coincidence. i told him id call him in a few days now that i had his number to get together. what a wholesome feeling.

OP: 3-hearts, scavenger vegan, no Champion Buff run. I'm not allowed more than 3 hearts (no bonus hearts) and I can only eat meat if I find it, I can't kill animals for it. I'm not allowed to use any of the Champion abilities.

...it was just pretty good. It was cheap sex for my eyes and ears. Dialogue ranged from just serviceable to fucking terrible. There was one likeable, well-executed character (Lieutenant Joshi), and the visuals, while orgasmic at times, thematically felt more like something I'd look for in a Boba Fett Star Wars game than a cyberpunk noir follow-up to the original. The use of lighting in some shots is.... oddly stimulating, at least on first viewing. To that affect, this film just feels like "Palpatine Explaining the Tragedy of Darth Plageuis, the Wise to Anaking from Revenge of the Sith: The Movie."
Gosling does his best to bring the protagonist alive but between his "simply okay" acting ability and nothing-to-write-home-about characterisation it's hard to feel anything towards the guy. Jared Leto and Love were both absolutely AWFUL. Leto spouts some pretensious-ass anime bullshit every time he's on screen. As the only two antagonists in the film, it suffers for it. Ford feels like he's mailing it in on this one, even if he is one of the more interesting characters to watch on-screen.
The hologram waifu and sex with a prostitute was an understated weird, but maybe that was the point. I can't see any good reason for a gigantic hologram advertisement to be completely nude though, that's pretty blatantly exploitation.
And maybe I was just confused or can tell where the story is going, but was it obvious to anyone else that Deckard had twins and Gosling is one of them? The first shot of the film is a focus on K's vividly green eyes, and then Deckard mentions that "She [Rachael, romantic partner] had green eyes." The movie establishes that two Replicants had identical DNA despite one being a girl and one being a boy. When K shows the girl the memory she tells him that it's a real memory and starts to cry -- my brother interpretted this to mean that she saw her own memory and got emotional, but she had just established that you're not allowed to get real memories implanted, which means it must be his memory. Then the one-eyed chick throws K's idea about him being the child out the window which, to me, points to them setting up that reveal in the sequel. Maybe I'm just missing something.
I honestly recommend watching it at least once in theatres, but considering it started to drag along near the 2 hour mark, I can't see myself watching this as much as the original, or any of my other favourite movies. I would have liked a little more audio/visual storytelling rather than expository dialogue. The film only puts its feet into that pool instead of taking a nose-dive, which granted is still better than most films today, but it's something that the original did so well it's hard not to feel a little watered-down. As far as sequels to 80's classics, you haven't really got much better than this so far, but I feel as though making a new IP would have allowed the team a little more creative liberties that might have suited the director's vision better.

...and has more eloquently put their thoughts into words.
Great channel, highly recommend watching some of his videos if you like game design and/or Naughty Dog in general.

Just thought some of you might be interested in that.

Should they be seen as historical achievements or crimes against humanity? On the one hand you have the absolutely monstrous treatment and abuse of the original Americans but on the other hand you have incredible inventions, scifentific discoveries and and the settlement of what would eventually become the United States (which I think should be considered one of the most historically important events -- ever).
Where do you stand?
