    If only local media would catch up with the times and get an internet presence.

    [–] Unlocking Everything in Battlefront II Requires 4528 hours or $2100 KhabaLox 7 points ago in gaming

    If the market really is little kids getting their parents and grandparents who dgaf to buy them consoles and sharkcards and loot crates, maybe that really is what companies will develop for;

    I think this is a big part of it. I'm an adult gamer of a 9 and 10 year old. I probably would have bough them SWB2 for Christmas, but I came home the other day to find out that my sister in law pre ordered it for them as a reward for their good report cards. I think I've talked them out of it, but I may need to get them Overwatch instead.

    For parents who aren't gamers, I can't see how they will get the full implication of this boondoggle.

    Go to a different planet and the gravity can be entirely different.

    Is that true? 'g' is different, but 'G' is not, right?

    [–] Something is wrong on the internet KhabaLox 3 points ago in indepthstories

    I just think that this situation has just sort of spontaneously happened as a result of countless little things that led us here.

    I think you're right, and I think this is analogous to the point the article's author is trying to make.

    The people who are writing and/or deploying the AI programs that create these videos aren't purposefully trying to expose children to questionable content. They are motivated by the incentives the system/environment provide, and the result is somewhat disturbing. Likewise, parents and politicians are motivated by the incentives inherent in our capitalist system, and the result is that you have overworked parents who "neglect" their children and are attacked for it. It's quite surreal on both fronts.

    [–] Disney didn't allow reporters from the LA Times the chance attend any advanced screenings of Thor: Ragnorak due to the newspaper's coverage of Disney's influence in Anaheim, CA elections. KhabaLox 1 points ago in movies

    Do you know how expensive it would be to relocate Disneyland and California Adventure? They must have billions of capital sunk into those parks. They can't just pull up stakes and move like a carnival. Certainly not over a parking garage that would make them money even if they had to pay for it.

    [–] US House of Representatives' tax plan will not make any changes to 401(k) plans KhabaLox 7 points ago in financialindependence

    So there's nothing to stop someone from establishing a "religion" and preaching whatever politics they want? Like a Church of Sanders or something?

    [–] The Astros beat the 3 most expensive baseball teams (in order) to become World Series Champions. KhabaLox 1 points ago in nevertellmetheodds

    True about Kershaw. He could have had 3 wins in the WS if Bellinger learned to hit a curve ball. I swear the kid was as bad as Cerrano from Major League, but without the redemption in the 3rd act. He's only going to get better though.

    So are the Dodgers. In fact, the Dodgers' starting position players for Game 7 are paid less than the Astros.

    Astros Salary Dodgers Salary
    Springer 3,900 Taylor 485
    Bregman 539 Seager 575
    Altuve 4,688 Turner 13,000
    Correa 535 Bellinger 476
    Gurriel 14,400 Puig 8,214
    McCann 11,500 Pederson 500
    Gonzalez 3,725 Forsythe 7,000
    Reddick 13,000 Barnes 540
    Total 52,287 30,790

    The reason the Dodgers' total payroll is bloated is Kershaw ($36m) and Adrian Gozalez ($22m). Gonzalez only played 71 games due to injury and losing his starting position to a rookie. Apparently there's some salt there too, because he went to Italy during the first two rounds of the playoffs, and after dressing for a couple games of the WS, the Dodgers asked him to not join the team for the rest of the series.

    Edit: Salary in 000s.
