    [–] I have a mental illness, let me die (2017) - Adam Maier-Clayton had a mental condition which caused his body to feel severe physical pain. He fought for those with mental illness to have the right to die in Canada. Adam took his own life in April 2017 MittensSlowpaw 2 points ago in Documentaries

    I agree with what you are saying and it is sad society is such a piece of garbage when it comes to mental illness. They refuse to truly help these people. Maybe a new bill is passed or a little money but it isn't real help. They are still misunderstood, feared and used as scapegoats. So because of all that garbage they often never seek help and just keep it inside.

    It doesn't help you have all these pretenders online as well in places like Reddit or Imgur constantly tossing around the words like OCD or depression. Just because they hate a picture crooked OR ARE JUST FEELING A LITTLE SAD BECAUSE OF ONE BAD DAY! They make it harder for those with real issues.

    I really dislike our society when it comes to mental illness and how they see them or deal with it.

    [–] Tesla strikes another deal that shows it's about to turn the car insurance world upside down - InsureMyTesla shows how the insurance industry is bound for disruption as cars get safer with self-driving tech. MittensSlowpaw 37 points ago in technology

    The US is garbage when it comes to a great many things like cell service right now. They lobby to make it hard for others to get in and use the excuse of upgrades being expensive to never truly upgrade anything. People always buy it even when they get federal funding.

    I once had Verizon charge me for a phone upgrade and argue with me about it for a few hours after I discovered it. They kept saying I had called on the new phone and had received it. So they had to charge me for the new friggin phone!

    I never got an upgraded phone! My current phone at that time was garbage and I wanted to switch carriers! I had zip plans to renew at that time. My whole call was actually to cancel in the first place and I discovered it then! They had hid it from me and were trying to use it as a reason for me being unable to cancel my plans!

    Just.. uurgghh.. after several hours they finally admitted it and canceled the plan. Verizon can suck a dick.

    [–] Ubisoft needs to learn what “full game” means... MittensSlowpaw 1 points ago in gaming

    This was before greed had taken over the industry and people like EA had yet to buy everyone else out.

    [–] Ubisoft needs to learn what “full game” means... MittensSlowpaw 1 points ago in gaming

    This reminds me of the very last time I ever bought a collectors edition. The Halo 3 collectors edition that came with the helmet. It was also made of very cheap plastic and looked like shit. The smart people traded it in or sold it asap before people found out.

    I knew then that the age of decent items coming with games at no extra cost had come to an end.

    [–] Ubisoft needs to learn what “full game” means... MittensSlowpaw 1 points ago in gaming

    The problem is people are still buying it regardless due to things like brand loyalty or not wanting to be left out. So they know they can shit all over everyone and get away with it.

    The only way for this to change is if people grow a spine and actually start avoiding buying garbage like this. So thus the gaming industry is doomed. The next generation is conditioned for this and their parents always buy it.

    [–] Ex-DEA agent: Opioid crisis fueled by drug industry and Congress MittensSlowpaw 1 points ago in news

    Not surprised by this at all. Our government is so corrupt at this point it stopped being a laugh at the late night talk show host joke about it thing. Instead now it is a turn the damn TV off you are so disgusted by the constant never ending site of it these days.

    The corruption is so bad they've even stopped giving decent excuses for what they do. So while this is terrible it isn't surprising in the least. Our government is run by large companies and all the stooges they employ.

    [–] Magic mushrooms may 'reset' the brains of depressed patients MittensSlowpaw 0 points ago in science

    If they need more people for the study I am up to help but that said. I do not want to be apart of the placebo group. I have enough issues without people lying about helping me.

    [–] I just want to share our old school X-Men Cosplay group 🤗 Stylouz Cosplay MittensSlowpaw 2 points ago in comicbooks

    The outfits are great but aside from Rogue it is a firm reminder why I didn't like most female outfits in comics at that time.

    [–] "FCC’s claim that one ISP counts as “competition” faces scrutiny in court" MittensSlowpaw 3 points ago in news

    I am not going to lie at this point if the new head of the FCC got hit by a bus I'd probably go to the funeral just to piss on the grave after everyone left.

    This is just nuts and there is no way a single isp counts as competition. Just insane.

    HA! Jokes on you! I live America! Most of us are in debt already!

    [–] How bad can the new spying legislation be? Exhibit 1: it's called the USA Liberty Act MittensSlowpaw 1 points ago in technology

    So basically they might as well shoot us now like they did with the Patriot Act. Since neither of these have anything to do with the name and everything to do with hating the American people.

    [–] Puerto Rico's governor says 'let's talk' after Elon Musk says Tesla can rebuild the island's power grid MittensSlowpaw 2 points ago in worldnews

    I think it is a great call and I really hope it works out all around. This could be the showcase the US needs to get off its butt because an area of the US will have better and cheaper power then the rest. All while being a territory.

    It will also just help get PR back up on its feet and help its economy. The cheaper power will allow for cheaper prices for things such as tourism. Especially at a time when so many are reluctant to jump on board.

    I really want this to work out. I really really do.

    [–] This really hurt my soul. MittensSlowpaw 2 points ago in gaming

    Clearly they need to be smacked with it but only with a bad game inside it. The Gameboy will live it was built sturdy.

    It was just an enjoyment to watch you do it. You not only had a good time but stuck with it. One can only hope to have half your enjoyment of the day and ability to just roll with the punches.

    [–] Elon Musk Wants Mars. We All Should. An interplanetary mission may be a balm for our cynical times. MittensSlowpaw 11 points ago in space

    I can agree in many ways as space travel breeds hero's and hope. It also provides a just in general positive distraction. It was sad we stopped going to the moon and never established a moon base. The way it pushes forward science as well was lost due to tossing those dreams aside.

    [–] Claims That Net Neutrality Hurt Broadband Investment Are Crap MittensSlowpaw 5 points ago in technology

    Of course they are crap and anybody who wasn't a blind fool knew this. What really hurts investment has always been the massive giants stepping all over everyone like greedy assholes.

    [–] FCC Chairman Ajit Pai accused of cherry-picking data to repeal net neutrality MittensSlowpaw 3 points ago in technology

    Of course all he did was cherry pick data. That and use bots to try and make it seem like people wanted net neutrality gone. The man is a giant piece of garbage and it makes me sad nobody has hit him yet in the face.

    Even if he did that isn't how you solve or deal with it.

    [–] Don't start the story with sirens blazing, don't have photographs of the killer/s, don't make it 24/7 coverage, don't make the body count lead story, don't make the killer an anti-hero MittensSlowpaw 1 points ago in videos

    A really great European study on this topic proved that he was actually right. That the attention they get and the way they are immortalized actually has a far greater impact on these types of crimes. Then anything such as gun numbers or laws ever has but it was dismissed.

    The news and other agencies would rather have the views and clicks then accept a role of blame. The cash rolls in and more people die.
