Default Re: President Trump

Watching Jeff Sessions hem and haw and twist himself into knots, all I can say is that it's a good thing he went into politics because he is the shittiest lawyer I've seen. He couldn't lawyer his way out of a wet paper bag.

I feel sorry for his wife. The thought bubble over her head reads, "We had such a wonderful life before Trump." But Sessions brought this all onto himself. He ran to Trump like a lover, a moth to a flame.

This is a reference to having to pay EA to virtually fill up your car in a video game, correct?

Microtransactions in general, yes.

I still play GTA:San Andreas though, so it's not a problem I have encountered just yet. I still think the very idea of MTX is a ****ing cancer though.

Parenting and childfree? That's a bold move, Cotton.

Also, the people in r/conspiracy make KemM look like a ****ing classical scholar.

I did Vice City and I played it so much that I found when I went to bed, I will still see the graphics in my head.
Specifically the limo mission with the bomb, and the remote controlled demolition helicopter in the building site. Very difficult.

We're currently playing Assassin's Creed Black Flag on the Xbox 360 because that's how we roll.

And if you know how to sift the wheat from the chaff on /r/conspiracy, it's a lot of fun and you learn a lot.
It's a nice complement to reading stratfor.

Yes, same here. I found that helicopter mission so much easier after coming back to VC after having done the flight school in SA.

Right now I'm doing (yet another) round of Champ Man 00/01 because it is the best version. I've won the league 3 out of 4 seasons so far and I have dreams about my squad depth charts

I have moved up to a PS3 now for the 'most current' gaming system because I'm a very patient gamer. So it's GTAV, FIFA17 and Gran Turismo 6 for me now.

I plan on building a shit hot PC in the next short while though, at which point all bets are off and I'll still be playing 15 year old football games.

How can you help? Raise your son as somebody who looks out for his female friends rather than preys on them. If he sees a girl at a party who has had too much to drink, rather than rape her, perhaps he could cover her with his coat and make sure nobody bothers her?
what ordinary, decent men could also do are small things to change the culture. Like not joining in “locker room talk”. Challenging it if they feel up to it. Stopping their mates if they see them making women uncomfortable and crossing the line from flirting to creepy and harassing. A simple “Mate, not cool” is a good start.

Trump's denial that guns are the problem just beggars belief. These are figures for 2017 (and we're only 87% of the way through the year):

Total Number of Incidents: 53,856
Number of Deaths: 13,573
Number of Children (0-11yrs) killed or injured: 647
Number of Teens (12-17yrs) killed or injured: 2,858
Number of Mass Shootings: 317

Coincidentally, it was the 317th day of the year yesterday...

I genuinely have difficulty getting my head around those figures.
