Topic: Off-topic / How would you think if BING BOUGHT GOOGLE? ?

Jesus Christ, I spent 2 hours looking up information about corporations, shareholders, assets and equity just to answer a simple question from a guy named spookyskeleton
on Off Topic

And all of this stuff is useless to me unless I become rich
I have no goddamn life.

Topic: Off-topic / How would you think if BING BOUGHT GOOGLE? ?

Microsoft and Google both have about the same amount of money in equity
so the only way they can buy google is if they take a massive loan in order to buy enough shares to get Microsoft, as a legal entity, in control of Google. This is stupid risky since it will boost the hell out of Microsofts liabilities and crush their equity, as well as give them the responsibility of running two companies. And if they don’t manage to use Google with Microsoft to pull off some mind blowingly successful tech the Microsoft shareholders are fucked. Generally this kind of moronic risk is something wealthy people try to avoid.

As for changes on Google products, they will have an overall decrease in programming quality while Microsoft may or may not receive a boost. And they are both whores when it comes to privacy and the government. I guess whether or not it is a good thing depends on which corporation you like more. Generally I think it would be awful.

Although its nice to use facts and reason in arguments, its a pretty sad sight when you brag about ‘winning’ an argument against a moron.

Topic: Off-topic / Should killing an animal have the same punishment as killing a HUMAN?

Obviously not, their lives are shorter and they are not capable of making change in the same way a human can. Although I don’t think it is fair or right to completely disregard animals well being and kill/abuse them for petty reasons (or especially into extinction) but I would kill thousands of dogs if it meant i would save a single human being.

you move the camera by pushing against the borders of the screen with your cursor.
i find the best way to move it is to bump the border of the screen rapidly and make minor changes in the direction you want to see. If you want to see something far away then click on the location on the mini-map and adjust accordingly.

i have had previous experience with dota that was equally awful but i just chalked that up to lack of skill.
now i tried to play the game again and everything just seems soo monotonous and frustrating. And then i think about everything else dota requires you to do and all of it is a chore. Even in the combat, you have to have an instinctual knowledge of cast ranges and attack animations that makes everything unnecessarily complicated. I just don’t see ANYTHING enjoyable about this game.

Topic: Off-topic / Did any of the villains on Scooby Doo actually break the law?

Graverobbing
Fraud
Defacing/destruction of someone else’s property
money laundering
theft
and lots and lots of Defamation
to name a few that i am aware of

EDIT: also alot of the stupid shit they do is incredibly dangerous, they are probably breaking a ton of laws creating mechanical monsters and unleashing them to the public or misusing mechanical equipment or just threatening the public in general.

also Racketeering, how could i forget that one?

Topic: Off-topic / Just played dota 2 for 2 minutes

I don’t know how anyone can enjoy playing such a tedious game. Ive truly had more fun raking leaves then i had trying to play dota 2.

maybe there is something enjoyable about this game and i am just missing it completely, but there is no way i can see that on my own.

Topic: Off-topic / Why is Mexico/Mexicans a favorite target to make fun of?

Originally posted by aguspal:

Yeah, thats a great explanation and all, but that dosnt explains the overabundace of Mexican jokes instead of, say, france.

Because there are not very many French people in the US, especially not poor French people so they are not very relevant to the average American, their country doesn’t even get much attention at all on the news from what I have seen.

As opposed to Mexico where their country and people usually get alot of attention with Mexican gangs infesting cities and the projects, waging a brutal drug war with other gangs occupying the same area, Mexican immigrants fleeing into the US illegally decreasing the quality of life for the Average American pissing off the ironic “MURICA FOR MURICANS!” nationalists (where most of the offensive jokes come from), politicians debating whether or not aggressive immigration laws/policies are constitutional, Mexican cartels raising hell on earth within a few miles of the American border, and the Mexican population assimilating into American culture creating a significant Mexican-American population that is easier to sympathise with (probably where most of the comedian-Mexican jokes come from that criticises Mexico/Mexicans culturally).

Most countries do not like immigration of poor people into their country, especially when they are immigrating in bulk. This, of course, lowers the standard of living in your country since you will need more food, water, electricity, and homes for them to live here which can stress your infrastructure. And they will also take up more jobs which will either lead to a bigger unemployment problem or a lower minimum wage for everyone (so that companies can afford to hire more people). It also doesn’t help that when poor people from other countries move into a developed country there is usually a big culture difference makes them seem more alien to the natives and makes it harder to sympathise with them.

This is something that applies to all human nations, even America.

Topic: Off-topic / I have no mouth, and I must scream.

And Benny was suddenly pulled erect. On the girder he stood up, jerked to his feet like a puppet. The light was now pulsing out of his eyes in two great round beams. The sound crawled up and up some incomprehensible scale, and then he fell forward, straight down, and hit the plate-steel floor with a crash. He lay there jerking spastically as the light flowed around and around him and the sound spiraled up out of normal range.

Then the light beat its way back inside his head, the sound spiraled down, and he was left lying there, crying piteously.

His eyes were two soft, moist pools of pus-like jelly. AM had blinded him. Gorrister and Nimdok and myself … we turned away. But not before we caught the look of relief on Ellen’s warm, concerned face.

Holy shit, what is going on?
Are they in AMs little computer universe or something, Like rats in cage?

Originally posted by ImplosionOfDoom:

Then again irresponsible parents also won’t bother to check a video game for content before buying it, and end up buying games their kids aren’t cognitively ready for. (ex. giving grand theft auto to a 7 year old)

Just figured it was worth a mention.

Haha, exactly! I wonder if any politician is bold enough to point this out.

Topic: Off-topic / HOW do video games cause violence?

Irresponsible parents depend on television and videogames to raise their kids for them because they are too busy working or doing adult things to do it themselves. So if their kids ever do anything unethical or violent its either television or videogames fault, not their irresponsible parenting.

EDIT: or you can replace ‘Television and videogames’ with whatever media their kids are exposed to, bottom line its just an excuse for parents to avoid responsibility for raising their children.

“dropping the ball” is a disgusting understatement.
If this keeps going on its only a matter of time before America brings nuclear Armageddon by mistake. The world is basically under the threat of Americas own Damocles Nuke of pure incompetence.

Topic: Off-topic / What's your opinion on TheAmazingAtheist?

When I found him at 16 I thought he was cool but overtime I got tired of him ranting like an asshole about every little quality he can find in whatever shithead gets the spotlight in his videos.

After he outright called any parent that has more than 2 children and gets a van retarded I was completely convinced hes just a drunk asshole who rants on youtube and happens to be athiest. I unsubbed and never looked back. Subbing him also lead me to sub to MrRepzion who I also unsubbed (shortly after i unsubbed from the Amazing Athiest) for similar reasons.
