  1. Ok everyone, for the love of all that is holy plz plz plz understand the difference between a franchise business and its corporate counterpart. MANY of the restaurants and business you patronize are NOT corporate owned. They are administered by private local business owners, and usually they only have 10-20 locations if that. These are small businesses, they have less revenue and different problems that large corporate entities. So stop with all the complaining when they do what they have to...
  2. Tony Scott, suicide? I was a big fan of all his work. Ashame
  3. When money and power is concentrated in a central location, no one should be confused or angry when the lords and ladies line up in droves to pay homage to those who control it. I cannot understand the notion that this problem can be fixed by centralizing even more money and power and believing that it will be evenly distributed is some way. Philosopher-kings just do not exist, I would sooner trust in an invisible hand.
  4. Government imposed sanctions based on an individual or groups speech is exactly the antithesis of what government is supposed to do. They should be protecting speech, not imposing penalties on speech they disagree with. Supporting such actions by government is foolish, what if it was speech you agreed with? Are we now relying on the government to make the choice of who we do business with in our personal lives as well? Decide for yourself.
  5. Amazingly MD might soon become a "Shall Issue" state, good for Judge Legg for ending the stay and siding with Woollard. We shall see what the higher courts say about this. "A citizen may not be required to offer a "good and substantial reason" why he should be permitted to exercise his rights. The right‘s existence is all the reason he needs."
  6. Got access to Source Filmmaker...i shall post my creations as soon as i can make some :)
  7. New law to come into effect next year. "All households not owning a certified firearm and an adult trained in its use, must pay a tax to the federal government to cover the cost of police services."
  8. Ok then, so come 2014, when my "taxes" come due, we get to go through all this again? ...fun times.
  9. Quote of the day... "It's not enough to mean well, you have to do well"
  10. "In many ways I am not all that excited about the next generation. It will let us do everything we want to do now, with the knobs turned up" -John Carmack MY thoughts exactly, new and innovative technology is what is missing, new ways of making content and experiences. Adding another shader or a couple more FPS is not very compelling.
  11. Crytek calls UE4 old news, i say they are both in trouble until they can shorten the time and money it takes to create assets that take advantage of such incredible software.
  12. Some updates to the Trayvon/Zimmerman issue for people who want to know want happened. Not posting any opinions, just some of the pieces I have found. Full 911 transcript. http://www.documentcloud.org/documents/326700-full-transcript-zimmerman.html Zimmermans account. http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/2012-03-26/news/os-trayvon-martin-zimmerman-account-20120326_1_miami-schools-punch-unarmed-black-teenager Trayvon autopsy results. http://www.wftv.com/news/news/local/autopsy-results-show-t...
  13. Got some D3 guest passes for anyone who needs.
  14. If the supreme court strikes down any part of a bill as unconstitutional, wouldn't it necessarily HAVE to be re-voted in congress? It's a new bill for all intent and purposes isn't it?
  15. Going to be in AZ for a day on the 10th, if i can work something out i want setup a meet that evening with anyone who is available.
