  1. This is the greatest song that has the lyric "Her placenta falls to the floor" in it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xsJ4O-nSveg
  2. Well, that's obvious why else would you put up with an annoying immature immortal for?
  3. I doubt Sun Wukong will have romance options.
  4. Never be said I missed a chance to post this gem
  5. Ahh, I imagine a glorious future where kids will feel the pain of online gaming DSL gaming every time their quantum computer connection goes down because their sister made a tweet.
  6. I'm not an expert on the stuff but I still feel like I should point out that processing small portions at a time is faster than processing a whole world. That's where smart design comes into play and you have a string of beautifully rendered small areas connected to each other. Specs matter only insofar as good design needs them to do, all else is just marketing.
  7. I can't believe this thread is still going....one day an AI will look back at the Obsidian Forums and declare us the nuttiest bunch that ever posted on the internet. And don't come at me telling me about 4chan we have higher standards here.
  8. As I'm not an expert in law I would have to defer to you in this matter, and whilst I do find your examples of Wild West gun legislation interesting(that should be a topic by itself) the loose interpretation of gun ownership of recently integrated Western states should not be the a good example of gun legislation, nor should it be any State interpretation of the constitution. That's why we have the Supreme Court. But really, we are just arguing the meaning of "Draconian". To gun folks any legislation is too much, to anti gun folk anyone owning guns is too much. My happy middle is you can ow
  9. I agree with you and I think most second amendment advocates would, the focus on "assault" rifles often comes from politicians that have never shot a gun, and have never bothered their bodyguards what they think about guns. It is highly hypocritical to advocate for disarmament when being surrounded by armed security. I didn't take it as such, I just wondered about the figures and whether or not the gun ban actually correlated to a reduction in gun crime. I can only guess at what other factors could explain the reduction of gun crime, particularly since the same type of gun ban d
  10. Honestly, this isn't a challenge but I would love to see some figures to back this up. I'm only going off from what the statistics have been since I've been interested in the topic (2009-2020) but most crimes are committed with handguns not rifles. So I have to ask how frequently were assault rifles used in crimes during the 90's and how big was the drop after signing the Assault weapons ban. Was it effective or was it another dud like the National Firearms Act?
  11. I would love to see some numbers, but just off the top of my head some of the poorest rural districts have low gun crime. If we are talking correlation, then there needs to be both motive and opportunity when it comes to crime. Regardless of which, my original point is that overbearing gun regulation doesn't solve gun crimes.
  12. Here you go https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_violence_in_the_United_States_by_state Edit: I guess we should argue the difference between rate and number of deaths
  13. Sir, those are obviously per capita comparisons of firearm deaths, not gun crimes. But feel free to believe that Alaska is a den of organized crime and not a frozen wasteland where people are suiciding.
  14. Except that even in border towns the assignment would go to the cops because its a 911 call. Police self train more than people think, but that's a great argument for more funding of police. What's the root of the issue, guns? The highest rate of gun crime is in the states with the strictest laws, and before you go off on illegal smuggling across state lines you should research the ghost guns coming in from the Philippines. Plus the majority of crimes are committed with handguns, not the "assault" rifles everyone wants to ban.
  15. Response times matter. Image the following situation: 911 receives a call about a shooting in progress, the assailants are equipped with semi automatic rifles. If the cops go over there and assess the situation without the proper equipment then 2 things will happen: 1- Cops are in a active combat zone whilst outgunned 2-The situation will continue while the military rushes to the scene. Putting aside the fact that it is not the military's job to respond to domestic crime, you now have double the response time and since military personnel is not actively patrolling an area a larg
  16. That's complex issue, big cities might just do with a specialized force like SWAT but border towns might end up in a shootout with a paramilitary group. So they do need access to military equipment.
  17. Which Total war game are you talking about? Units and AI vary from game to game, for example in Shogun they quickly rout if you kill the general.
  18. @BruceVC If we are talking about geopolitics, then isolating Cuba makes sense. Specially since in recent years they have been funding leftist revolts across Latin America (though I suspect the financing comes from China) I honestly fear that we are heading towards a repeat of the Cold War against Russia, with several proxy wars in Africa and Latin America.
  19. Why not just set up a virtual machine and run an emulated windows? https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-set-up-windows-xp-emulator-for-windows-10-4772549
  20. There were events of sponsored violence, where agitators would rally people to publicly shame undesirable elements (dissidents, gays, people that listened to the Beatles and had long hair) The cops were also free to detain any person they considered part of these groups and that continued during my lifetime there. It was thankfully a regulated affair, the purpose was intimidate without putting enough pressure that would cause revolts. Part of the reason as to why the Cuban regime has lasted for so long is the fact that they know how much to pressure without causing the population to crack.
  21. It's kinda of an open secret that the reason for the political sanctions were held by Cubans in exile because of connections to the cocaine trade. I mean it's one of those unproven theories but its been there for years. I've only heard it in rumors and anecdotes of people close to those involved in the smuggling. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/did-castro-use-cocaine-to-keep-the-economy-afloat-1073865.html Its however the government refusal to both give better deals to foreign investors and the fact they stamp out any private enterprise that becomes successful, that h
  22. Probably GD or someone else. I think there's propaganda from both sides and the reality lies somewhere in the middle. I wouldn't go as far as to say that the Cuban government is good but I also don't think its as bad as the Khmer Rouge or some more genocidal regimes. But that's cause by the time I was born a lot of the killings of dissidents had stopped. Is a lot of these well meaning ideals that are exploited by foreign disinformation/subversion campaigns. It matters not that they don't follow the movements just that their ideals align with the movement. To follow with
  23. As the Visigoths later became the Spanish and the Spanish would later beget the Hispanics, and as a Hispanic I find your reference to Visigoths and walls racist sir.
