    [–] Hammond can go under King's Row: ✔ AirRaidJade 76 points ago in Overwatch

    the volume difference honestly wasn't worth it, the dude has his game volume way way down to the point it's almost muted, and his mic volume all the way up at max

    anyone reading this who hasn't visited the link yet, you've been warned

    [–] Anyone Else Think Hammond Is Stupid & Cheesy? AirRaidJade 2 points ago in Overwatch

    You don't need that giant wall of text. The answer to your question, most definitively, is "YES."

    [–] I have a dream AirRaidJade 9 points ago in AccidentalRacism

    This was no accident, Allison knew what the fuck she was doing.

    Knew there had to be a troll saying this somewhere in this thread.

    [–] Republican Americans, what do you make of the evidence against Trump? Also, what would your reaction be if he pardoned people indicted by Mueller? AirRaidJade -1 points ago in AskAnAmerican

    but what specifically would you think if Trump were to preemptively pardon Manafort for example?

    How do you "preemptively" pardon someone? What the hell does that even mean? I'm not sure you understand what a pardon is.

    [–] How to get a girlfriend when you're autistic AirRaidJade 17 points ago in notdisneyvacation

    I'm autistic and I don't know about other people

    Yep, that's autism.

    You're totally ignoring the part directly after that where he said his own username. It's him talking to himself. Don't get so worked up about it.

    [–] What's the worst thing that ever happened to your butt? AirRaidJade 1 points ago in AskReddit

    (copying my response from another thread from a while back)

    Radioactive anus.

    To make a long story short: In May 2013, I had to go to a medical lab in Reston, VA (just outside DC) for some brain scans. For the scans, they inject you with a radioactive isotope to make certain regions of the brain "glow" on the scans so they can observe the activity (I'm not a doctor, forgive me if my explanation's a bit off). Afterwards you're supposed to drink a certain amount of water (32oz IIRC) to flush the radioactive isotope out of your body.

    Well, I didn't drink the water like I was supposed to. Instead, being so close to DC, I wanted to go into the capital and see the sights. It was a hot 90-degree day, I was out most of the afternoon and evening, and almost all of that time was spent walking. So, naturally, I sweat a lot that day. Now, think about it - when you're walking all day in the sun, where do you sweat the most? Where the friction is - right between the legs. Buttcrack.

    I began feeling a bit of an uncomfortable burn, like a rash almost. By the time I got back to the hotel it was full-blown pain like I'd never felt before. That radioactive isotope was coming out of my body in the form of sweat, and it was burning and irritating any skin it touched, which unfortunately happened to be all of the skin right around my asshole.

    But then it got worse - now I had to shit. Fuck. So I hobbled my way into the bathroom, grunting and moaning all the way, got to the toilet and began to push... and I let out the most painful screech I've ever made as that rough-edged turd squeezed its way out of my wounded radioactive asshole. Then I had to wipe, which was even more painful. By the time I was done with that, all I could do was lay on my bed and scream. I'm surprised nobody else at the hotel called the police, they had to hear me with as loud as I was yelling... yeah, it was quite painful.

    Moral of the story: If you're going in for nuclear medicine, DRINK YOUR FUCKING WATER. A radioactive asshole is not a thing you want.

    what doesn't help is everytime the idea of affordable health care is brought up the only solution is that we become socialist?

    Tell that to the liberals, they're the ones who want socialism so bad and will bring it up at every possible opportunity.

    meanwhile...

    I won’t sit here and pretend I have any deep understanding of what depression really is I doubt you do either

    (when I do from firsthand experience)

    and

    You seem like a special snowflake that latches specifics that support your narrative

    While I won’t sit here and pretend I have any deep understanding of what depression really is I doubt you do either.

    LOL HOLY FUCK DUDE. Now you're pretending to know FUCKING ANYTHING ABOUT ME? Go fuck yourself.

    [–] to catch a friend AirRaidJade 2 points ago in therewasanattempt

    But I think flicker probably has more to do with it. At any given time a CRT screen is almost entirely black, with a small dot of light tracing out the image line by line. The human eye holds light for a moment, so we see all of the lines blur together into one image, but maybe animals who need to spot quick movements see life at a higher "frame rate" or with lower image persistence. They may be able to perceive at least some of the black parts of a CRT image, which would make it look very unnatural. In addition CRTs are interlaced, so they draw every other line and then draw the lines that were missed, back and forth. Generally this goes unnoticed but sometimes if you pause a DVD at just the right spot between two frames you can see the interlacing. I think both of these factors would make it so that even when an animal recognizes another animal on a CRT they don't feel like they are "in the same room" and don't try to interact with them. By comparison modern display technologies always display the image with zero flicker and update the whole screen at once rather than line by line.

    Whoa, wait, is that why it used to be that if you take a photo of a TV it'd have a bunch of lines in it and you couldn't really see anything on it, while nowadays you can take a photo of a TV with no such problem?

    Depression is not a "petty" reason, jackass. It's a damn good reason, and it often is a terminal illness. You clearly don't have it because it's obvious you have no clue what you're talking about.
