    [–] Non-Americans looking at the US like... Friendly_Fire 7 points ago in AdviceAnimals

    Well I have '!' and '=' on my keyboard. No need to lookup the code for ≠.

    [–] Capitalism is not "USA-ism" Friendly_Fire 1 points ago in CapitalismVSocialism

    Wut?

    Nearly all MOP in the US are controlled privately. Hell, even the MOP used to make military gear is nearly all private. The DOD gets bids from private contractors for most stuff.

    What are you talking about?

    [–] Looking for MMORPG with deep, complex combat system and well - designed, challenging enemies Friendly_Fire 0 points ago in MMORPG

    Good luck finding an MMO with gameplay similar to Dark Souls

    New World is coming, if you are fine with PvP. Which OP really should be as other humans are the best challenge.

    [–] r/sysadmin questions whether their parents are entitled to tech support Friendly_Fire 4 points ago in SubredditDrama

    I don't think it's the parents who want the children out at 18. Usually kids want to be independent (if they can).

    Honestly I love my parents but would not want to live with them.

    Anyone Garbage humans will be a thief if things are just there for a grab.

    [–] [Opinion] I don't know how to word it, but it feels like there are so many MMOs out there that people pick one based on one aspect of it (pvp, pve, crafting), exhaust the content and move on Friendly_Fire 9 points ago in MMORPG

    This has nothing to do with age or generations, just preference.

    I am an older version of your nephew. Generally I find story telling through games to be bad. Like your nephew I read a lot. I enjoy a good story, it's just not what I'm looking for in a video game. Game play is the unique feature of video games, why would it be weird to care about it most?

    And how can you honestly say Fortnite is a bad game? Do you have any justification besides dumb elitism?

    [–] In Spherical Geometry, a triangle can have three right angles! Friendly_Fire 1 points ago in educationalgifs

    This is the thing I want to ask. How do you explain the sun setting in one area, but not setting in another, with a flat earth? Now that we can live stream to personal individuals around the world, it's so easy to demonstrate.

    [–] Anti-vax Movement Listed by World Health Organization as One of the Top 10 Health Threats for 2019 Friendly_Fire -2 points ago in worldnews

    You are worried about the possible effect of an unvaccinated person on someone else, but don't worry about forcing people to be injected against their will? All of our actions impact people around us, but we aren't responsible for secondary effects. For an analogy, me accepting a job you applied for doesn't mean I have any responsibility for you being unemployed, even if you would have gotten the job had I not applied.

    No one should be obligated to undergo medical treatment or procedures against their will to protect someone else's health. It's obviously wrong under any sane, non-facist ethical framework.

    It's about the health of humans as a species... it goes above morals and into necessity.

    And it certainly has nothing to do with the human species. The human species will be fine either way. There are plenty of people (probably too many) and no current vaccine protects us from any existential threat. Even the black plague, one of the worst in human history, killed "only" a 1/3rd of the population, which quickly bounced back and grew past what it was pre-plague.

    The sick truth is the human species would be better off in some ways with fewer people, especially those who have medical issues. But I'd like to encourage everyone to take vaccines and protect your health because you are under no obligation to sacrifice yourself to try and solve humanities problems.

    It's actually very difficult to prove that two things are not connected. They can do a study that proves that a single ingredient is not to blame. But there are many other possibilities.

    It's actually not, thanks to anti-vaxxers.

    Look at the rate of autism in vaccinated kids, look at the rate in unvaccinated kids. They are the same. Therefore, vaccines don't cause autism. Done.

    This has been done for massive samples of people. Do you need me to link you the studies or can you google them yourself?

    How would it not be? I don't think anti-vaxx will be an issue anywhere close to long enough for natural selection to happen, but in principle it's no different from any other behavior that threatens your children (which natural selection tends to remove).

    I think it's more of a meme then a serious claim, but...

    • Obviously the people who don't vaccinate will be at risk, even if they are not the only ones, so you're still "purging dumb people" in theory.
    • If you want to go full eugenics, people who have poor immune systems that vaccines don't work on might be on your "purge list".
    • Before this movement, people were never faced with the shitty propaganda about vaccines. There parents might have believed the same thing.

    But obviously many parents/children disagree on the issue. Though general intelligence has a heavy genetic factor, there's a lot more that goes into believing a myth like this, or not.

    It is indeed a shame that this movement doesn't only affect the people who believe it, because I personally wouldn't lose any sleep over an anti-vaxxer getting a preventable illness.

    Gamers and getting upset about their purchases despite have more resources than ever to know exactly what a game will be like because they refuse to ignore the "hype" games marketed at 12 year olds.

    [–] Why Isn't Intermittent Fasting Inferior to a more Frequent Meal Pattern? Friendly_Fire 5 points ago in Fitness

    insulin is a bit antagonistic to melatonin so slamming calories right before bed might interfere with sleep quality, which hurts outcomes

    There has to be other factors that overwhelm this interaction given how common it is to either want to sleep, or actually sleep, after a huge meal.

    [–] Anti-vaxxers everywhere Friendly_Fire 1 points ago in AdviceAnimals

    The flu vaccine it's completely unnecessary for many, probably most, people. Don't get drawn into a ridiculous extremist "pro-vaccine" position just to counter anti-vaxxers.

    [–] Slapfight over paying $5 a month for "weirdo cartoon tits" Friendly_Fire 36 points ago in SubredditDrama

    So it sounds like you're just making up bs that sounds correct as a way to suggest that something you don't like is problematic.

    Ding ding we have a winner.

    [–] Amazon's New World MMO is doing a Choose Your Own Adventure on Twitter Friendly_Fire 1 points ago in MMORPG

    Can you give any reason it's a survival game?

    The entire gameplay loop is based on RPG mechanics. I can't think of any survival mechanics that come into play.

    [–] Help me learn to love horizontal gear progression in MMOs Friendly_Fire 2 points ago in MMORPG

    I guess I'm more referring to PVE content

    I always got the impression horizontal progression was more for PvP focused games.

    [–] Anyone else feel combat is a bit fast/spastic? Would a *small* slowdown make actions more deliberate? Friendly_Fire 2 points ago in AshesofCreation

    And there's a cited quote on the AoC wiki stating the MMO's intended TTK will be 30-60 seconds; the current TTK is designed for a BR experience.

    That's good to know, but do you think the BR and MMO shouldn't be so vastly difference? I was hoping the BR would be a good way to test (and learn) the MMO PvP.

    Also 30-60 seconds seems like too long!
