My god, Did you just bring up some memories. In the 90s my buddy Morgan was head of the game lab at Intel. He was a mast of quake, but another factor was that in the 90s broadband was much more scarce. So imagine playing quake on the fastest machines Intel made on the fastest corp network likely available at the time AND being a master of quake. That was Morgan. And he got paid to do it.
I fucking hated playing quake against him. I was ok, but he was amazing. He also would taunt you.
However, my best gaming memories were when we would basically live at Intel for days at a time playing UO across six diff machines simultaneously on that same corp net. No lag. Thanks for triggering that memory.
>"Willingness to sext (and candor to discuss it) is probably just standing in for open and positive views on sex, and/or the presence of a vigorous and passionate sex life."
Candidly; I sext a LOT. It IS a skill such as foreplay... I only mesh well with others who have the same propensity for sexting. Also - I am 40, and those with whom I sext are in my age range +/-5 years...
It is not a young thing by any means. It is also not a new thing.
I would prefer a service that signs up with major grocery stores to have every receipt emailed to my "recipe as a service" API where it is associated with my personal loyalty card ID, such that whenever I buy anything from, say, Safeway, I get a list of recipes that can be made from the known inventory in my home.
Make the delivery of "what was bought" to the RaaS completely automatic and transparent.
You can plan a week of meals and generate the grocery list (among other things). I (and especially my wife) look forward to the day I can integrate with grocery order and/or delivery services to have groceries ready for pickup or delivered.
The default response to "Stop resisting" should be allowed to be "Stop oppressing me".
Seriously, I am so freaking tired of all police activity in the US - they are actually ruining our country.
I would love for John Oliver to do a piece on "What if all mexicans disappeared in a mexican rapture from the US" -- showing how the entire country would grind to a halt if every mexican vanished. The point being that much of the invisible social mortar on how the US economy functions is work by mexican labor (cleaning, cooking, building, etc).
Compare that to the argument that mexicans are taking jobs/ruining the country... I think the US police force in aggregate does more harm to the nation than do "illegal mexican immigrants".
Further, if all cops were held to the same standards (there should be a national standard of laws and a central, citizen based, "internal affairs" that looks into every police matter, the world would be a better place (TM).
