Not to mention another senator from Nevada calling his own citizens "domestic terrorists" for basically trespassing.

You're talking about the situation where government agents backed down from confronting a person who was trespassing and stealing government resources and his armed thug friends? They backed down because of a fear of violence not because they revised their policies. The senator was right.

How did this get mod'd up. Its less coherent and more of a rant than the parent.

Right, because who needs to pass a law requiring a gun registry when we can just ask the NSA for a list on demand?

Oh, wait, maybe this is a BAD thing.

You gun nutjobs would probably be a lot more successful at making your case if you could string together at least 140 characters that make sense. Right now, people like you are actively keeping the phrase "gun nutjob" alive, and you're turning off people like me who actually support your position. I know it's asking a lot of someone with a room temperature IQ, but could you at least try to think before you click "post"?

Ugh, I hit submit while playing with the line breaks. I meant to say.

"outed" does have a negative connotation as if someone was hiding something.

From the Urban Dictionary: To reveal some previously secret part of someone's life.

Of course the original article doesn't say anything like that. It is the original poster's bias that added that phrase

Black and Middle Eastern esports fans are conspicuously missing.

Hispanics make up 17% of the US population and aren't mentioned at all. What's up with that?

Those of Middle Eastern ancestry make up .42% of the US population. That would be 4 people at a 1000 person convention. The small percentage makes it very easy to skew the over/under representation.

The best (?) thing about Windows 8 is that you get a task bar on every monitor. Great if you have a couple big screens. The magic corners with no visual hints has to be one of the worst ideas they've come up with. Killing metro apps is fun too. There probably is some more intuitive way but here's what I do :-( go to the upper left corner wait for the screen image of the desktop to appear flip back to desktop mode by clicking on the image go to the upper left corner wait for the images of all the metro apps to appear right mouse on the metro app you want to kill and select close.

There are plenty of ethnic and economic groups that hunt. Some people think you should understand the whole end-to-end process involved in getting and preparing food. Others like understanding the true meaning of "the food change". We kill to survive or improve our lifestyle. Some are more honest about it that others.

You're comments are a reason that companies drag their feet on enhancing safety. They could do the right thing to add more safeguards. Then some will take that to mean they were defective in the past, and sue. We're actually creating disincentives for companies to improve. The auto insurance IIS safety standards are one of the few places where we provide incentives for companies to improve. I'm kind of surprised it hasn't caused lawsuits "you sold me an x that wasn't as safe as y". Hmm, maybe CYA causes the car companies to have crash testing as early as possible the product cycle to avoid that.
