This sounds like a metric about as useful as LOC (lines of code) - it favors all those devs who like to make multiple 2 line changes instead of checking in all related files together without breaking a build.
why the fuck should belgium honor american intellectual property rights for example if america doesn't honor even basic property rights?
America has more economic & political influence, as well as more nukes and a vastly larger army that needs to justify its upkeep - that's why. Belgium should just be happy they aren't an oil rich country that doesn't have US oil contracts
> it is bad driving or other stupid behaviour on the road that kills
You mean, a lack of road skills?
Even with very low enforcement, India has stats slightly lower than China and also comparatively lower to many countries with far higher enforcement. Which made me happy, till I realize we probably have potholes to thank for this - hard to have traffic fatalities when everyone is inching along slowly on bad roads in high traffic!
I'm guessing they are trying to show correlation before traffic enforcement and deaths per capita - wish there was also a version that showed obedience of road rules & deaths per capita, i.e. when traffic stays in its own lane and doesn't cut signals, does that significantly reduce the fatality rate? I know, its a more subjective area so there can't be any good statistics for it - but imho just staying in lane properly would greatly reduce the 'speed' related deaths atleast, and maybe for some other categories too.
They are all there, you can also zoom in the map to make it easier to see the countries. The blue dots are just for specific news stories, hovering over a country gives you its stats.
Dominican Republic - 41.7
Iran - 34.1
Thailand - 38.1
Anyone who gets to level 60 (or I guess its now level 70) can now work at getting Paragon levels, and use the points for Vit on ALL characters? This means that HC has far less risk for those who have a whole lot of extra Vit compared to the plebs who don't have a higher level char.
Of course, there's already big differences depending on what equipment you can afford or got lucky to find, but I wonder if this could make people lose interest in the HC scene (or conversely, some will buy the expansion just so that their alts start off with a lot of advantages)
EQ Next is going to be free 2 play, so what is the harm in trying it out? It looks really interesting, I definitely plan to play - never played EQ at all so it will be a completely new world & lore for me. If they start pushing microtransactions heavily etc., its not a big loss to stop once the game is no longer fun.
I remember randomized dungeons in D1, and good loot systems in both D1 & D2.
Unfortunately most of the 'new to D3!' stuff is a rehash of things that used to exist in the former games, but at least they are working to bring it up to par in those departments.
With low population density (i.e. user base) over a large region, its far more cost effective to run a few high bandwidth lines and provide wireless service. Cellular network bandwidth isn't that bad, e.g. people use their mobiles as hotspots - in city areas, which have a far higher density of wireless signals (leading to more interference, and also less available per person).
That 13 year old girl doubled her lifetime waiting for the net, and her laptop may be a little bit obsolete by now - they should give her an upgrade for starting all this
Do you really expect people to say this publicly, when the most likely consequence is imprisonment and a media circus that paints them as evil villains?
Did they get this from the dungeon addressing system in
If everyone continues to be 'smart' about such voting, it may well end up in some elections that 75% of the public would have supported a 3rd candidate but just vote for the same pair of idiots as always
Could have just seen the Circles page on your machine, or possibly noticed a post you made to the 'Family' circle where everyone else its shared with are relatives, and figured it out that way. That is a disadvantage of the whole 'shared with XYZ other users' display imho, it allows you to indirectly infer the circles involved rather easily - hopefully there will be some way to disable that for posts you make, or perhaps there already is one and I haven't realized yet.
