Literally the only decent argument against it is that it would result in stupid people having it done in poor circumstances without proper medical training or equipment.

Everything else, including Verb's list of bad points and contradictory attitude towards consent and suffering, are stupid and easily refuted.  There's something about this topic that strikes a nerve because all reason and consistency goes out the window in an instant. Thankfully the practice is rapidly going out of style even in the US.

Disappointing final episodes but they had their moments. Jon stabbing Dany was very well done. The final attempts at pleading with her and seeing if she might still change and listen to reason, only for her to end it all on "they don't get to choose" with a big and convincing smile. That was a solid scene.

Gaming / Re: What fighting games have you played?
« on: May 15, 2019, 02:38:30 AM »
I had the first Smash on N64 when I was a little kid and played a fair bit of Soul Calibur 2 on the original Xbox. Other than that I really haven't played or owned fighting games in years. The new MK looks pretty good though.

The Flood / Re: Avengers: Endgame

So there's a gazillion different timelines where Thanos still wins in the end and we're still supposed to root for the heroes who literally risk destroying the universe or some shit for their own specific timeline?
They don't dig into it that far but the way I figure it works is that the alternate timelines are only created when someone travels back and does something that affects it.

This is kind of explained by the bald wizard lady when she talks to Banner. She summons the orange light beam to illustrate what happens when you remove the time stone from their timeline. It creates a divergent timeline where they don't have the stone and shit hits the fan because they can't defend themselves (she doesn't specify it, but I assume she's referring to Strange using the stone to rewind time over and over again to barter with that one monster in his movie).

So you've got the main timeline (A) which is the one we're in. This is the only timeline up until someone travels back and changes something. This doesn't affect the present or future of A but instead creates an offshoot timeline B starting at the moment of the change.

In short, this would mean that there's one Thanos for every timeline that is created upon time travel. Thanos from timeline A (the main one) is dead because Thor chops his head off at the beginning of the movie. Thanos from timeline B (the one from 2014 where Nebula gets captured) is also dead because he traveled forward in time to timeline A where the gauntlet turned him to ash. All the other Thanoses presumably continue to live but get their asses kicked in the end.

The main issue with this is that while Thanos never wins, he also keeps existing. Because in all other alternate timelines, things essentially pan out the exact same way they did in the main timeline - all the way up to the point that the alternate timelines catch up to the big finger snap and also have to go back to get more stones and thereby create more spinoff timelines that keep going through the motions over and over.

Second problem is that one timeline where their actions in the past allow Loki to get away with the blue stone. That's the one timeline I see that majorly deviates from the main timeline A in a way that could change the entire outcome so that Thanos wins. Thinking back about it, the Avengers really did fuck up and just leave. That is unless Loki somehow does manage to get away with it in the main timeline (I don't remember what happens in that movie so that might be it).

That, or there really just are infinite timelines and Thanos does win in trillions of them (but still loses in infinitely more). I believe that Fury tells Spiderman that the multiverse is real in the trailer for the new movie, so that's a real possibility.

And damn, what a fucking post this is. I don't even like superhero movies much or care about the MCU.

They explain a lot of those gripes in the movie itself. There's literally an entire scene about how "standard" timetravel as we know it from other movies like BTTF doesn't work, courtesy of Banner. You can't change the present by going back in time and doing things differently. Time is not a linear thing. If you travel back to the year 2000, the current present just becomes part of the past in this timeline. Your actions in 2000 are then actually the future when compared to the current present, and you cannot change things that have already happened by doing something in the future. There's some sense to it as the movie essentially treats timelines as alternate universes.

That's why the entire point of their travel is not to go back and kill Thanos or stop him in the first place. It's to bring back the unbroken stones from different past timelines to repair our own. Changing something in the other timeline only changes the future of that one. It's the entire reason Cap brings the stones back to their respective timelines at the end.

Big wins for remainer parties at local elections, and losses for Brexiter parties.

UKIP lost 80% of its seats. Wonderful.

I don't know many Digimon but remember liking the evil clown one when I was a kid.
Piemon?

Yep, that's the one. He was the main villain in a story arc I think. I haven't watched more than like 10 episodes in total but he still stands out to me. The other bad guy I remember was a vampire that became enormous and the angel killed it, I think. That's about all I remember from this show.

maybe the universities shouldnt fucking force courses on people that arent related to their major and have them study what they want to.
This is one of the strangest things about American education to me.
My sister was required to take math and English classes when she was going to college for cosmetology. I believe it's because you have to pay for those courses and the college has to try and get as much money out of you as they can because the funding for education in the US is pretty awful.
Yeah, I've heard some really shitty things about the process from my girlfriend and American colleagues. It sounds like it's a byproduct from the "education for profit" attitude. This has some upsides since some of the best universities in the world are in the US, but it seems to hurt the vast majority of students and also affects the quality of education in all schools that aren't among the top ones.

The second dude was being petty but your professor sounds rude herself. Getting upset over people leaving your class and calling them immature over it to their face? That's pretty rude of her as well. I sometimes give lectures at university and couldn't care less about people leaving or not showing up as long as they're quiet and non-disruptive about it. I didn't attend many of my classes when I got my Master's either.

I like him I hope he's not too jank
I legit thought we were going to get the Joker from Batman, lol. What even is this dude.

I'm still waiting for someone to explain what Persona even is beyond Anime RPG™
From what I understand, it's like some messed up version of Pokemon where people can have these fucked spirit world pokemons based on their personality that they use to fight each other's minds and battle demons in the underworld. The pokemon look like dicks and everyone is in high school yet you can still romance and date other underage people because Japan. Combat is turn-based and it all looks really, really bad. I struggle to think of another game that is less appealing to me and literally nothing about it seems interesting.

being ex IW devs, its nice to see respawn still cant balance for shit

theyre completely shitting themselves with content as well

What are your complaints about it
wingman makes longbow and triple take obsolete, flatline and spitfire with attachements make other ARs obsolete, R-99 makes other close range weapons obsolete except peacekeeper
I disagree. Wingman doesn't hold any scope beyond x2 and has low bullet velocity. It's very unreliable at anything past medium range and definitely doesn't replace any of the actual long range weapons. Flatline doesn't hold a stabilizer and is definitely rivaled by 301, and the Spitfire has enormous spread at close range. Prowler with select-fire is as good as r99.

The game's actually pretty well balanced. Not every weapon is intended to be a top choice for late game fights but there's definitely more than one great weapon for each range and they all have their pros and cons.

What exactly have they supposedly changed in the MCC? Sound is pretty bad and the exact same problems of poor connectivity and overall bullshit still exist just the same.

Correction: the Halo 2 remaster is the first one I've played that actually feels snappy and good. Got 23 kills in my first team slayer game there.

How?
By sending me and Boomdeyadah friend requests obviously
Eh, I don't see myself playing much more of this. I only renewed my Gold for one month to play with my brother last night. It was fun to get in some games with him but the state of the game just doesn't seem to be that great. Overall performance is pretty bad, the hit registration is kind of embarrassing for 2019, the amount of quitters / AFKers is insane, matches are rarely balanced (like, we were split-screening and ran into the same 4 man team of American tryhards repeatedly - all with twitch links in their name, identical tags and just overall toxic behavior). Let's hope they do better for the PC release.

Halo 2 plays fine. 3 is the one that has somehow gotten as bad - if not worse - than it's original form on the 360. CE plays fine too I guess? My only experience pre MCC with CE was Mexican servers on Halo PC so absolutely anything was a direct upgrade.
H2A was the only one that felt good to me. All the others were bad to meh. I guess I just never really noticed that much of it back in the day but it was absurd how poor the hit registration is and how much BS goes down in an average match. I really hope they do better with the PC version because this was kinda disappointing after their big MCC rework.
