    [–] 'MURICA ATomatoAmI 3 points ago in MURICA

    I'm not gonna lie, I closed this thread before I got the joke and had to come back.

    [–] Trump has concealed details of his face-to-face encounters with Putin from senior officials in administration ATomatoAmI 2 points ago in politics

    Gristly. Grizzlies are bigassed bears that can wreck tour shut but did nothing wrong.

    Gristle is basically cartilage particles in muscle. Not fun to bite and also reminiscent of chunky bits and shit.

    [–] TIL in 1820, 94% of the world's population lived in extreme poverty. In 1990, 34.8%, and in 2015, just 9.6%. ATomatoAmI 5 points ago in todayilearned

    Also humans breed like fucking rabbits so to expect the overall number of e.g. crimes to go down is hopelessly optimistic compared to the rate.

    Pop music always sucks, but survivorship bias is what makes the radio stations for previous decided sound good.

    TL;DR old shitty music isn't on the radio.

    Yeah a lot of the time I still call my ninja edits spez edits...

    [–] Yeah don't worry about the static electricity guys, it's legal! ATomatoAmI 11 points ago in ScarySigns

    While HVDC is a thing I think you're being downvoted because it's my understanding that more high voltage lined are still AV due to cost (at least in part) and would therefore still have concerns with wasting energy as EM waves into the nearby air.

    Hence the sign. That said, I am not an electrician.

    [–] Buying a Dell Mixed Reality headset, what else do I need for it? ATomatoAmI 1 points ago in WindowsMR

    I think they just measure the voltage to determine battery life so they always assume it's low. Can't vouch personally yet as I just got mine on the big holiday sale and have mowed through alkalines.

    [–] Buying a Dell Mixed Reality headset, what else do I need for it? ATomatoAmI 1 points ago in WindowsMR

    Especially USB 2.0 for BT. I moved mine to front 3.0 and it went all squirrelly but then dug out the 2.0 extension I had foolishly purchased for the headset itself (no 3.0 extensions on site) and moved it out really close to front and center of play space. Went from 90% good to.... well, I haven't actually had problems yet but it was only half a night. Much more enjoyably consistent for Beat Saber anyway.

    Also while The Number 23 wasn't a very good movie, you could instantly tell without hesitation which character he was playing in a scene after a transition. Which is kinda neat I guess (for the uninitiated, there's a sort of two plot system going on where he's reading out of a book, so one character acts differently than the other).

    Hell, the ultralight or featherweight kinds are a good split between boots and tennis shoes. I wear them almost exclusively. Doesn't help that I've found that gussetted crotch pants often have military styling (hey, comfort and usually durability).

    ... I've never been in the military or law enforcement. Ah, well.

    Ahhhhh but my cats don't help with vacuuming. Checkmate atheists.

    [–] The Right Half of my Left Display is Black ATomatoAmI 1 points ago in WindowsMR

    I snagged the same Acer set and I've been pleased but if you don't want some occasionally finicky stuff (WMR crap due to M$ or view range of controllers, etc), the Vive is still the tried and true. Plus great customer care.

    [–] [VR] Lenovo Explorer Windows Mixed Reality HMD w/ controllers, Brand New, Sold by official Microsoft Ebay acc - $199 + Free Shipping ($399 - 50% aka $200) ATomatoAmI 1 points ago in buildapcsales

    This, probably.

    A couple of reasons, for one IIRC the resolution is better than the Rift, but also it's cheap enough that if you're only sorta impressed it's not a big loss.

    For the record I've only got a RX 470 and have framerate slowdown in fights on Elite but the immersion is still super neat. It's more or less the first game I really sat down and played a bunch in VR.

    [–] The tide is coming in ATomatoAmI 1 points ago in thalassophobia

    To be honest the ocean siren isn't bad, I worked at a place where some of the doors only locked one way and if you didn't key them before you walked through you would set off an alarm that sounded like that.

    Even better, for a while the sensor didn't work properly (didn't alarm) so several people got out of the habit of keying it when they walked through. Fun week when they fixed it though.

    As an insider, it certainly fucking seems that way on the news, doesn't it?

    Everyday life hasn't changed much, but I feel like politics has divided normal people and empowered loud assholes.

    [–] [Steam] Winter Sale 2018: Day 1 ATomatoAmI 0 points ago in GameDeals

    Looks like they're all taken now. Or rather, as of now enough are gone that steam activation is blocked for me for a few minutes, going from the bottom.

    Plus hyper means like shitty hair and skin and if anything slightly higher metabolism. Hypo is what people blame.

    But yeah the only person I know diagnosed with it for sure (my mom, at least at one time) isn't a hamplanet so there's that.

    Basically just consume less calories. Preferably by shedding pointless bullshit like sugar first. I mean alcohol isn't great but at least it can be part of a notable social activity.

    ... Except didn't he preside over weaponry sales to the Middle East that led to further conflict? Not saying he had Guantanamo or the current neverending clown show as his legacy, but let's not let our rose-tinted glasses get too much in the way here.

    [–] [VR] Acer Mixed Reality Headset w/ two controllers- $140.99 ($399.99-$259) ATomatoAmI 1 points ago in buildapcsales

    I have 20/20 but it depends on size of glasses whether this will work based on comments ITT. Either way WMR is all to certain specs so they should be pretty similar unless you hear otherwise.

    [–] [VR] Acer Mixed Reality Headset w/ two controllers- $140.99 ($399.99-$259) ATomatoAmI 1 points ago in buildapcsales

    I had the same thing, maybe different seller, at the 144 price a few days ago. Got the controllers with it.
