Comment I saw the clouds pause. (Score 1) 1042

Went to Zion National Park with a few friends around 2008. Sat at a table to eat some sandwiches we had bought before going hiking. I had my sunglasses on, my friends were all talking, and I was half listening while staring at the clouds. They were moving across the sky and then just stopped. Paused. I took my sunglasses off, and they were back to moving again. My friends talking didn't pause, they were still talking the entire time. No idea what that was, but all I could think of is a glitch in the system.

Comment Re:So long, Netflix, it was good while it lasted (Score 2) 187

I've only been subscribing to Netflix for their original content. I can get most of the unoriginal stuff on my Prime account already.

Many of their shows have been absolutely amazing. Game of Thrones level of awesome, in my humble opinion.

Stranger Things (1 season)
Daredevil (2 seasons)
Jessica Jones (1 season)
Narcos (2 seasons)

I've binged all of these shows because they were that good. The only other show I've ever binged before this was The Wire. That says, to me, they have something special going on. If they can keep the good content coming at a decent pace, I have no problem with them dumping the same stuff I can get anywhere else.

Not only did they show she did nothing illegal in their eyes, they one upped them by saying that even if one of their own did the same thing, they would not be prosecuted either. Reprimanded? Yes. Illegal? No.

I honestly can't believe we're even still talking about this. The only thing we got out of this is emails showing everyone thinks Boehner is an alcoholic.

How about we do one better, we see what the ACTIONS of what someone like Trump, who makes products actually does versus what he SAYS.

Oh, you're all quiet all of a sudden? What happened? Yeah, you drank it all, didn't you? Quit smiling at me with those blue mouths!

I believe he is speaking of triple A games. Which tend to outsell their PC counterparts nearly 4:1. Yes, computer gaming is still technically driving more money because of Steam and it's endless sales on Euchre clones and Bubblepop Plus. The fremium games and such that everyone plays on their facebook goes into those sales numbers, too.
