    QUOTE (raBBit @ Feb 28, 2018 -> 07:24 PM) https://twitter.com/ggreenwald/status/968845804592091136 @ggreenwald: This is just such a perfect example of how, as long as someone is sufficiently disliked by the US media, blatant falsehoods are not just permitted by celebrated. All anyone has to do is read the DMs to see that the Atlantic/MSNBC's narrative is the *exact opposite* of reality. How is it the opposite of reality? In 2017, Wikileaks said it had no contact with Stone, and Stone said he only had contact with Wikileaks through a journalist. In 2016, Wikileaks and Stone had at least a brief bit of direct contact and indicated interest in more. So, both Wikileaks and Stone lied. That's the Atlantic story. It even explicitly says that the messages indicate that there was no working relationship prior to that. "The substance of the messages does seem to corroborate, however, Stone and WikiLeaks’ denials prior to October 13 that they had coordinated in any significant way."

    QUOTE (JenksIsMyHero @ Feb 16, 2018 -> 09:25 PM) How does no one call up Zucker and say "hey, stop these fake websites/groups from spreading false news on your site." First Amendment. It's different if they know for sure that it's foreigners running afoul of federal election laws. But if it might just be Joe Basementdweller creating a Facebook group and posting a bunch of nonsense, what are they gonna do? Any report of the Obama admin trying to crack down on Facebook for allowing anti-Hillary content would be a scandal.

The Newsweek headline doesn't match the AP report. Newsweek says Mattis admits there was no poison gas use by Assad. But in the AP report, Mattis only says they lack evidence for Sarin use, not poison gas use in general. He even says chlorine gas use is "clear".

    QUOTE (ptatc @ Jan 30, 2018 -> 08:12 PM) So a statue of great generals in history would be exploiting racist imaging but a statue of General Washington or any other President who owned slaves is not. Washington's most notable actions were being a Founding Father, Commander of the Revolution, and 1st President. That's why people build statues of him. Confederate leaders' most notable actions were defending slavery as part of a traitorous rebellion. And that's why people build statues of them.

    2017-18 official NBA discussion thread

    QUOTE (JenksIsMyHero @ Jan 29, 2018 -> 05:45 PM) ESPN had a fake trade idea between the Cavs and the Bulls: Bulls give up Mirotic and Lopez Cavs give up Love, Shumpert and the Nets pick. It's actually a compelling trade idea for both teams. Cavs would get out of Love's expensive contract (50 million over the next 2 seasons). Lopez gives them a decent rim protector. Niko obviously gives them more shooting. The Bulls get a good player in Love, a bench guy in Shumpert they can drop after next year and another lottery pick. This will never happen because Love is the fall back franchise player when Lebron leaves and that Nets pick is overvalued, but it's an idea. No way. Bulls get the 2 best assets (Love and pick) here.

    Update: Definitely enjoying Zelda much more as I continue to play it. Travel has been much easier since improving my stamina bar, weapon durability isn't much of an issue now, and the crafting is less tedious. The world is huge and enjoyable to explore. The main quests with the 4 big machines have been well constructed. I'd still put it below Horizon Zero Dawn on the basis of combat and story (come on Nintendo, put some effort in), but I can totally understand this being a Game of the Year candidate.

    QUOTE (Whitesoxin2019 @ Jan 18, 2018 -> 08:11 AM) 1. The New York Times' Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trump's historic, landslide victory that the economy would never recover. Historical, landslide victory? He lost the popular vote by 3 million and had a narrow electoral college win. They're lying in the FIRST bullet point.

    2018 Video Game thread

    QUOTE (Chicago White Sox @ Jan 6, 2018 -> 03:24 AM) You may be the first person on the planet to call the exploration in BoTW far worse than Horizon. That's biggest single element of the game. I'm guessing you're still in the Great Plateau, because once you leave the game opens up like none other. I've only opened up 4-5 towers worth of maps, so I'm not far. The reasons I'm not enjoying exploring much so far: - Travel on foot is slow (thanks stamina), swimming is slow and you can drown absurdly quickly (thanks stamina), climbing is slow and tedious (thanks stamina), and I was excited to climb towers and hang-glide off to explore far, but found that hang-gliding has stamina?!? Link has the cardio of a morbidly obese man. - Horse is much faster method of travel, but the controls are like a big boat and I often have to leave him places, which forces me to back-track long distances to get him again. - I want to find Shrines to unlock fast-travel points but this Sheika Sensor is so goddamn annoying I want to leave it off. - ...there's very little I've found so far that's actually interesting. In Horizon, I wanted to explore to find new equipment (which wouldn't break) and skills. I wanted to find new cool enemies. I wanted to find places that gave me more information about Aloy, the world as it is, and how it got that way. BotW's story, characters, and world are paper-thin so far, so I'm struggling to get invested. I'm confident it will pick up, but they need a lot more early-game content.

    I'll definitely keep playing. I do like it, but these early frustrations were really nagging.

    2018 Video Game thread

    Is Breath of the Wild just a poor man's Horizon Zero Dawn? Struggling to understand the hype here. The plot premise is really really similar, but BotW's storytelling, characters, combat, graphics, sound, UI, and exploration are all far worse. Some of these design decisions (crafting to heal, weapons that break every 5 minutes, stamina system) are baffling. The only area it excels so far is with the puzzle shrines. I'm only like 5 hours in. Does this get better?

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi *SPOILERS* Thread

    QUOTE (TaylorStSox @ Dec 19, 2017 -> 07:18 PM) Yet he gets put in a headlock by an imperial guard. The movie is so dumb and inconsistent. Come on. If it was realistic, Kylo would just force-choke their brains to insta-kill them. Or Rey would force-push their arms out of the way while she swung her light sabre so they couldn't defend. Or no one would bother fighting Jedi/Sith in melee combat because they'd just use super space shotguns and super space bazookas that couldn't be deflected unlike the PEW PEW single-fire guns.
