Comment Re:BeauHD! Stop!! Move Awa-a-a-ay From the Keyboar (Score 1) 143

BeauHD, trashy, salacious gossip about actresses in a SF film is still trashy and salacious gossip. You are single-handedly dragging this once-great site into depths of moronic self-parody unplumbed since the Jon Katz era. Seriously, this is like A Post Too Far. You are in need of an intervention, for the good of your entire organization.

You are still single huh? My wife picked out Leia and Han Solo cake topper for our wedding cake with signs that read "I Love You" and "I know".

Mostly because of words and actions that are remarkably similar to Nazis.

For example: just about every article ever on Breitbart.

The BLM rioters and cop killers are not associated with Breitbart. The shooter at that gay club was also not associated with it either. It seems to me that actual violence is being committed by Leftwing radicals. The Nazis were after all National Socialists.

Comment Re: Trump 2016!!! (Score 1, Informative) 2837

I am anti Trump, openly liberal and I own guns. Lots.

My wife used to be anti guns until she watched W ruin the economy in 08. At that point she believed that if America elected another moron, rising unemployment/poverty would cause people to turn to crime to survive.

So you are a hypocrite who supports liberals who are anti-gun and believe that only people like you should have rights and freedoms. Do you know what we used to call those kind of people? Nazis. National "SOCIALIST" Worker Party. Interestingly, your democrats has become anti-worker and globalist.

and Trump has better odds being our next 3 presidents than I do getting married but I'll say this: No way in hell would I buy a woman a diamond engagement ring. Even without the ethical quandaries (blood diamonds anyone?) I'd still feel like a chump. I remember growing up thinking a diamond engagement ring was a 1000 year old tradition and finding out it was all made up in the 20s by marketing execs to sell diamonds.

Have you ever thought of it from her point of view? Think about what she is giving up for you. She is giving up looking for other mates. She is giving up her name. She is giving up a lot of things for love. She is choosing you over her friends. That is not to say that she would not still see her friends once in a while but when you get married, you are both supposed to make each other a priorty over your old "buddies". A diamond engagement ring is a symbol of your commitment level to the relationship.

I used to be a jaded nerd like you. Do you spend money on buying cars that depreciate in value, cannot love you back and you eventually have to replace? Do you spend thousands of dollars on technology that depreciate in value, cannot love you back and eventually breakdown or become obsolete?

How about thinking about showing your love and appreciation for the woman in your life with flowers once in a while and a diamond ring? Trust me, once you find that girl you will want to put a ring on it sooner rather than later.

Men only buy diamonds to woo women. Cultural shifts, however, are reducing this need in the following ways:

2) young men are becoming ever more disenchanted with traditional relationships and methods of obtaining them (it is an enormous international trend among young men these days, with no apparent cultural icons leading it...though I would speculate they are largely reacting to the divorce revolution, and the growing phenomenon of "princess syndrome" among middle class girls and women). 3) nobody has money to burn anymore, too much of it has flown too far up the class hierarchy to the super-rich, who only have so much demand for diamonds.

Social engineering worked amazingly well in an earlier cultural climate. In this one, those efforts are largely dead on arrival.

To sum it up, many men are removing themselves from the gene pool.

If you want kids, be prepared to "man up" and pursue a relationship. I used to be a man child but I realized that I had to grow up.

Dating sucks. You are not doing anyone any favours by trying to convince yourself and others that marriage is not a goal of yours. Do you want to be "forever alone" or happy with a wife that loves you? You will eventually get old and be unable to obtain dates if you do not take the plunge.

Comment Re:Again? (Score 0) 94

It's the democrats sending operatives to Trump rallies to incite violence. It's the democrats fixing their party primary for the favored candidate. It's the democrat nominee who does everything possible to escape any sort of transparency. It's the democrat nominee that wants to get us into a war with Russia.

Apparently, none of that matter if Democrats are doing it. The law does not seem to apply to them for some reason. They can also be racist or misogynist if they are supporting the LGBT in the same breath.

Three cash transactions can be done in the time it takes for you to use your slow-ass method.

I don't know where you shop for groceries, but where I live the "slow-ass method" consists of: Slide card into reader, enter PIN, wait for cashier to finish ringing everything up, hit OK, remove card.

Until it does not work due to a networks error or you forgot your pin. Also, you are a bit of an arse if you use your card on anything less than 5 bucks these days. Grownups are supposed to carry cash as a backup at least. If you do not have any cash on you, hand in your adult card and go back to preschool.

Just hope you never plan on using any content provider outside of your ISP's sphere of control, in that case. Cuz they will make competing services unusable on their networks without net neutrality. You do know that, right? Can't see that hole you're digging? Get the hell out of it then.

Your tech support call would go something this: Me: I'm having trouble getting netflix to work. Them: Sorry sir, it must be a problem with netflix, we can't help you. We can however sell you a new subscription to our guaranteed to work streaming service that's not as good as netflix, but it'll stream very good for you, because we're throttling netflix into the dirt so everyone uses our services instead! You could try another internet provider, oh, sorry, we're the only one in this area cuz we bought all our competitors.

Welcome to the world of no net neutrality.

That is what data caps are for. Or, you can pay an extra fee for unlimited data like I did. I pay 15 bucks extra for unlimited data at 25 (26) Mbits/s. That is fast enough for UHD Netflix.

it's a limited live streaming service, not a replacement for cable or satellite television... especially cable + homerun or tivo....

and one that violates the very essence of net neutrality with at&t zero-rating this service's data on its own internet plans.

this is exactly why internet providers should ONLY BE internet providers.. not content providers, telephone companies, cable or streaming or satellite tv companies, etc etc etc.

Wow. So you would rather have less functionality for everyone because you want your precious "net neutrality" bullshit. Net neutrality prevents providers from coming out with IPTV solutions which is why your country is falling behind the rest of the world.
