Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

I wear a [Chat] now. [Chat]s are cool.

    Bolded the part thats really fucked up. Republican right wing has an entire propaganda station 24/7. That is hard as hell to compete with, MSNBC is no where near the kind of echo chamber that fox news is, and desires not to be, which just lets them have more air time to spout insanity.

    There are people in this country that believe our president is not a legal resident, you can not reach them ever.

    I will also say that MSNBC is 1) not nearly as dedicated to pushing the Democratic line as Fox is to the Republican line and 2) not terribly insightful or persuasive even when it is acting as the liberal water carrier.

    This, plus they and CNN care so much about looking objective that they will frequently bring on people to spout right-wing bullshit in order to "get both sides," but not call them on how much bullshit their bullshit really is.

    Because when they are carrying water for democrats they have to keep couching it in a faux belief in journalistic integrity. Like the stupid suspensions of commentators for political donations.

    Like Fox would ever suspend one of their morons for donating to the RNC.

    Basically, when cable news isn't being worthless it's being actively harmful. Such an awful thing.

    I am not super thrilled with Obama but he's not the main problem. I'm not exactly sure what the main problem is, but it probably has something to do with private financing of elections and a significant portion of the voter base being slack-jawed yokels.

    Structural reforms necessary in civil service and parliamentary procedure. It isn't coincidence that all the major landmark progressive periods were coupled with governmental reforms in the first place.

    Or

    Change the rules; change the game.

    If I were going to get rid of leaves in the yard today, should I mow and mulch or rake and throw away?

    Like someone will be on CNN talking about how Jesus told them that Obama is really the devil

    And the anchor will just be like

    "I see... that is a very interesting point. Now on to our next story..."

    NO IT'S NOT DON'T GIVE IT ANY LEGITIMACY YOU FUCKER

    Blah I gotta stop watching 24 hour news networks

    They're good for one thing only, flipping past to see if there has been any major world disaster.

    Ghandi was a nutjob, so I'm not sure why you would want to compare yourself to him anyways.

    Think of it this way, as bad as things are now they're infinitely better than they've ever been at any other time in our history. Unless you were a rich, white, land-owning male.

    So my housemate has the Yellow light error for his PS3 and has found a guide that suggests he effectively bake the CPU with a heat gun for about 10 minutes, amongst other things. This sounds mildly crazy to me, but then I'm no techie, so what do you guys think?

    Here is a forums guide if you want more detail

    Even being a rich white male could suck until you killed your dad and took his stuff.
