Re: The Amendment

I hope I'm not breaking any rules by necro-ing this thread, but Brad was on to something. The possible implications the Third Amendment may carry in the modern world--particularly for government surveillance--are being discussed in legal circles.

Re: General site craziness

I'm getting this error when I attempt to visit loadingreadyrun.com/videos/archive on both Firefox and IE.

I Can Tolerate Anything Except the Outgroup.

Long read (very long), but I think it offers some much-needed perspective.

Re: Feminism general thread

And everyone was okay with that statue? I remember a huge outcry against it and the company apologized for it. Also it was not used as part of the wider promotional material like the "beautifully executed" Hitman ads. It was only for the collectors edition, but you're right as long as the...

Re: Feminism general thread

This is true for a number of crimes, but becomes muddier when the actual actions taken are not the crime, but the circumstances around them make it so. If we're friends, and I want to show you my new gun, and then also ask to borrow money, that's fine, but it's on me to prove it was friendly if you...

Re: Gaming Computer

:facepalm @ myself: I can't believe I forgot about a power supply and a disc drive. I generally chose a power supply with 250 more watts than I think I need. I've had bad luck with power supplies that totally should have been fine. In my case, a 430 watt PSU should have been plenty for an HTPC I was...

Re: Gaming Computer

Metcarfre is right. An $800 build quickly becomes a $1300 build with a monitor, mouse, keyboard, operating system (OS) and speakers/gaming headset. Fortunately, those peripherals and the OS will likely be one-time purchases that will last through years of upgrades and new builds. Especially, your OS...

Re: Books you're reading now

I started reading The Stand , my first Stephen King book. My friend loaned me the unabridged version . Over 1400 pages. I'm about halfway through. It's getting a little weird. It's all harsh realism and then suddenly Randall Flagg starts levitating.... Anyway, I'm just hoping The Stand doesn't turn ...
