Comment Re:Apple TV or Roku at reduced price (Score 3, Informative) 25

I currently have FireTV's on all my tvs....and currently do Playstation VUE for $35/mo for the 70+ channels.

I tried the DIRECTV NOW for the free 7 day trial.

I wouldn't switch to DirectvNOW due to:

1. No built in DVR capability (helps skip commercials).

2. On some days,it would periodically keep asking me to input my password, like it lost it somehow.

The interface was pretty slick, and the deal they had was pretty good, I got to see AXS and Velocity channels I lost when I cut the cord to ATT Uverse.

But it just isn't ready for primetime to me...glitchy and no DVR yet.

I may look again when they add DVR to the service, but who knows when that will be.

It's funny because it was a fad for a bit in the 1950s, but similarly died when the novelty wore off.

History has an amusing way of repeating itself. Nobody liked having to wear glasses to watch a movie in the 1950s, and the same is true today.

Well, I think we can ALL make this little argument go away here quickly.

Let's all start going along with the PC/SJW ideology and start with the concept that it is just basically *WRONG* to be a white guy.

If you just start with the correct premise, this all becomes very easy to deal with.....

It's going to happen sooner or later. There are too many states for the current Federal system to function properly. If we combined them together into 13 or so new states, I think we'd find the Federal system would start to work a whole lot smoother.

No.

The US has been working just fine so far, and is just fine currently, no need to change.

If it does, I hope it is LOOOOONG after I'm dead and gone. I've been 101% happy with it as it is so far.

Yep, the illiterate rurals have enough guns and ammunition to stop the million+ hoards of urban zombies. Nice fantasy

I have to imagine they actually ARE pretty well armed, moreso than folks from NYC that pretty much ban guns.

And if you talk more N vs S...I'd posit that we are WAY more heavily armed, so, don't zombie your way down here.

...but for me the main one is the lack of interaction you will have with a diverse group of people. You aren't likely to understand the issues faced by an inner city black male

Well, if you aren't dealing with them...and it doesn't directly influence your life, why should you give a shit?

I mean, there are LOTS of problems and injustices in the world, but if they don't effect my life, I pretty much ignore them.

I have plenty of things that DO effect my life that I need to spend time dealing with and caring about.
