I've also had shitty problems with the sound on Linux before, which I _think_ might be attributable to pulseaudio.

I've had shitty problems with the sound on Linux long before pulseaudio was invented.

Sound on Linux has historically been shit. Since pulseaudio has come along it's got somewhat better.

This!

Or my favorite version:

If you meet an a**hole in the morning. You met an a**hole.
If you meet a**holes all day, you're the a**hole.

I don't get it. Sometimes your "s" key works, sometimes it produces a "*". Maybe you'd better get your keyboard fixed.

Many of the people being blasted as misogynists are just gamers who made the mistake of expecting gaming journalism to follow some sort of professional journalism ethics.

You must be fucking joking.

"Gaming journalism" is corrupt and has always been corrupt, but it's not corrupted by the chance of sex with indy game designers, it's corrupted by huge wads of wonga from EA games. (entre autres).

105 by 68 metres (115 yd × 74 yd)

Who came up with these numbers? Ew. They don't work out nicely in either scale.

I don't know where you got those numbers, but they're wrong.

The real answer is: (From The Laws of The Game - Law 1 - the field of play)

Dimensions

The length of the touch line must be greater than the length of the goal line.

Length (touch line):
* minimum 90 m (100 yds)
* maximum 120 m (130 yds)

Width (goal line):
* minimum 45 m (50 yds)
* maximum 90 m (100 yds)

Or, for international matches:

Length:
minimum 100 m (110 yds)
maximum 110 m (120 yds)

Width:
minimum 64 m (70 yds)
maximum 75 m (80 yds)

Weird enough for you?
