Until your mirror bluescreens on you....

This is BEST that failing digital mirrors can do on you.
You don't want:
1) Frozen image
2) (partially) Black screen at night
3) White screen at bright sunlight
4) Slow video at winter

There are thousands of failing points for digital mirror versus couple failing points for regular.
Regular mirror will clearly show you when it is failing.

I agree about the rest.

Comment I spent "dollars" for family ticket (Score 0) 467

And I do not regret a cent.

1) That was nice present for kids.
2) I enjoyed it no less than any of 6 previous star wars movies
3) My wife also said that she liked it much more than last "Mad Max", which she finds disgusting. While I must say "Mad Max" was impressive, but I would better watch more  "Star Wars" movies that "Mad Max" movies.

This was right movie in the right time for merchandise.

Comment This world is for idiots. (Score 0) 406

I remember times when only idiots turned off pc with power button.
Now everybody does that.
Soon will everyone leave drivers seat.
Because if you are not driving why sit there?
Your reaction is anyway decreased, because you are bored, most probably not even watching on road and talk to passengers.

Hunter clubs members were allowed to have rifles. You needed (actually still need) to pass same medical test as for drivers license. Cannot be mentally ill, cannot be alcoholic.
Without hunter clubs it want possible to contro animal population. Rabbits, wolves, foxes are pretty devastating to farms. This apply to country.

In cities (cities in Ex/Ussr are smaller but densly populated) citizens didnt own firearms.

If you dont aim to be in some executive role / tv star / some very VVVVIP then dont dream about USSR kind of communism.

Humans are born to live free. It is impossible to be creative if you are totally controlled. In USSR you couldnt just decide to change work type. You could not decide easily, ok Ill be a an artist now. You had to learn before - in Academy Of Arts. And its rather hard if you have reached some age. And all your work would need to pass censorship.
Most tasks had very tight time schedules. Many couldnt cope with that and started to drink heavily. Why do you think russians drank/ still drink so much?  Because of good life?
Medicine was better then (for poor people). Every one was "fixed" when needed. Now it is very expensive.

Communism does not work without brainwash, censorship and good wall between free world and communists. Cause when you see what you are not allowed to and you want this very bad. Then leaders have to give you that or have to keep saying that all other world is wicked.
Just like Putin is doing right now.
