    [–] We're Sorry. My_Thursday_Account 0 points ago in apexlegends

    some people like to feel like they're actually accomplishing something. This game has literally no progression system whatsoever outside of the loot boxes so unless you legitimately get off on doing nothing else but repetitive things over and over again and getting no rewards except for the possible satisfaction of winning this game gets boring really fast

    [–] We're Sorry. My_Thursday_Account 6 points ago in apexlegends

    And remember folks all of your criticisms are meaningless because this is a free game and you don't have to buy any of these items. Just completely ignore the fact that it's a symptom of the industry becoming more predatory. Just don't buy the things, stupid!

    [–] How did this guy predicted the future so accurately My_Thursday_Account 1 points ago in apexlegends

    It's basic business sense. No publisher in the world is going to give a development studio 100% control over something that they Hope to profit from. Literally nobody. Not EA, not anybody. That doesn't make any fucking sense. It makes even less sense when you consider the fact that EA has never once given a studio full autonomy over the monetization of a game which is what people really care about. Ea may have been hands-off on the actual development of the mechanics of the game but anybody who thinks they let Respawn call all the shots when it comes to things like monetization is a fucking moron

    You're making a lot of very confident claims without providing any sources so I'm going to assume you're completely making shit up. Even the concept of EA giving Respawn total financial and marketing control over a game that they are publishing doesn't make sense on the surface.

    I bet you actually believed them when they told you that EA had nothing to do with the development of Apex too didn't you?

    I've got a bridge you might want to buy.

    [–] Hong Kong protesters plan to withdraw as much money as possible from their banks or change their currency into US dollars, both to protect their own assets and to show the mainland that the semiautonomous island is more than just a cash cow. My_Thursday_Account 4 points ago in worldnews

    He's also completely leaving out the fact that almost all of our financial institutions are federally insured. If your bank runs out of money tomorrow, assuming you don't go to some Podunk bank that somehow isnt insured, the government will literally pay you pretty much any money you lose.

    Considering all banks in China are directly government operated the "important" people won't lose anything.

    [–] AITA for not outing my dad, who I found on a gay hookup site? My_Thursday_Account 7 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    It's simple. Either OP is lying or he believes his lying sack of a shit of a dad deserves more respect and dignity than his mother.

    [–] AITA for not outing my dad, who I found on a gay hookup site? My_Thursday_Account 9 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    or he could just be doing the same thing he's doing right now and what he's been doing for 30 years except for, you know, not having a wife. He's obviously been living a lie for 30 years and doing gay stuff and nobody knows he's gay so I don't know what fucking space-time Continuum you assholes are in where the only two realities are to be a flaming homosexual that everyone knows is gay and is immediately lynched or to live in a lie with a woman but it's kind of fucking weird that you think that those are the only two options

    [–] AITA for not outing my dad, who I found on a gay hookup site? My_Thursday_Account 7 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    What reality do you live in where the only two choices are to be a well known active homosexual or to get married to a woman? You walk past a hundred gay men a year and you never know. You don't have to wear a fucking star on your arm.

    [–] AITA for not outing my dad, who I found on a gay hookup site? My_Thursday_Account 4 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    No see you don't understand. The internal conflict his father is facing is much more important than the possible conflicts that would be caused by revealing the fact that he's been lying to his fucking wife for at least 10 years and putting her at an extremely high risk for STDs.

    Because reddit doesn't know how to separate leftist utopic rhetoric from fucking reality. nothing is more important than protecting a gay man's dignity even if he won't offer his wife the same respect.

    [–] AITA for not outing my dad, who I found on a gay hookup site? My_Thursday_Account 3 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    he definitely doesn't understand even the most basic level of respect for his own mother and it's fucking disgusting if this is even real. It seems more like easy bait for this subreddit but who the hell knows anymore.

    [–] AITA for not outing my dad, who I found on a gay hookup site? My_Thursday_Account 5 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    that's my favorite part. People absolutely begging him not to out his dad and to try to coax his dad into telling the truth himself without revealing his sexuality. You kind of throw all of your rights to your sexual liberty out the window when you start cheating on someone. if you aren't going to offer her the dignity of telling her the truth, why the fuck should anyone offer you the dignity of getting to keep your sexuality a secret from the person you're lying to every day.

    [–] AITA for not outing my dad, who I found on a gay hookup site? My_Thursday_Account 9 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    I don't know man apparently half the people in this fucking thread think it's totally okay to let somebody be lied to every day just because it might cause a conflict in their life. Better just let them continue living a lie until they die of HIV than to possibly cause someone to get some hurt feelings. You can tell how many people in this subreddit have never had a healthy relationship in their entire lives.

    [–] AITA for not outing my dad, who I found on a gay hookup site? My_Thursday_Account 5 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    Anyone defending this has an absolutely fucked up view of relationships and either needs to wait until they graduate middle School to weigh in on serious issues like this or realize that they've been psychologically damaged and they aren't operating in reality.

    [–] AITA for not outing my dad, who I found on a gay hookup site? My_Thursday_Account 4 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    But not you right? You're like the smartest person in the room and you know everything right?

    It could be that people don't really agree with the idea of his dad putting himself and his wife at higher risk for sexual diseases and undermining the integrity of their entire relationship. I think the people who are defending this bullshit for the sake of avoiding any conflict in their lives need to grow the fuck up and realize that things like this do far more long-term damage than telling the truth.

    What kind of fucked up logic is that? Don't tell your mom that her husband of 30 years is completely disrespecting her every day of their lives just because it might cause a conflict? You people are fucking retarded

    [–] TIL That after a woman died, a multimillion dollar painting she owned was re-assessed at $0 due to it containing part of a bald eagle. In America, it is illegal to buy or sell them without a permit. The IRS disagreed and put a $65M tax on it. But her heirs cannot sell the painting due to the eagle. My_Thursday_Account 7 points ago in todayilearned

    The government attempts to tax illegal activity.

    Okay, this seems like an unnecessary addition? Yes, they attempt to, you have to attempt something to be successful at it. Heart surgeon attempt heart transplants and the IRS attempts to collect taxes. I don't see why this needed clarification.

    The difference is that there's no grandfathering in, here - the painting was legally possessed before it was illegal to sell eagle parts.

    Which is why it is being taxed, as it is considered inheritance and therefore income.

    It's illegal for the painting to be privately sold - the government is exempt from it's law.

    So you're okay with the government arbitrarily enforcing their laws if it means someone besides the government gets paid?

    That's not the response you give to the American public, and that's why the IRS settled, with the painting being donated.

    The IRS knows that losing face is not something they want - they thrive on compliance.

    Public response had literally nothing to do with this. The IRS doesn't give a shit about bad PR. They settled because you can't squeeze blood from a fucking stone and they would have never gotten paid. "Settling" for a donation is a way for them to ensure NOBODY ever gets paid for this painting, black market or otherwise, because it's locked in a museum now.

    Going 'neener neener neener' to the public is not a good idea. It's not worth the $65M.

    Literally what are you going to do about it? Stop paying your taxes?

    Enjoy prison.

    And before you come at me with some "THEY CAN'T LOCK US ALL UP!!" line, I want you to sit down and think really hard about how difficult it would be to convince a critical mass of the US population to defy federal laws and risk serious prison time as a form of civil disobedience when we can't even get a critical mass of the population to agree that it might not be okay to let drug companies charge $1000 a month for insulin.

    Not any crazier than New York or California or anywhere else with high population density.

    There's plenty of batshit insane people living everywhere, including whatever city you live in.

    [–] TIL that the US has refused to continue funding the nuclear claims tribunal set up to compensate islanders that suffered radiation-related diseases from testing. So far it's paid less than $4 million of a $2.2 billion damage judgement. More than half of the affected islanders have died since. My_Thursday_Account 2 points ago in todayilearned

    Lol you should probably check your own links before you act like Mr. Gotcha. Your own fucking link doesn't show even a single example of this post. There's plenty of general posts about Bikini Atoll but I have yet to see this specific post one time. Surely if it gets posted "once a week" it would show up at least once? Or it would show up in a reddit search? But it doesn't.

    Does the truth hurt?

    Dumb fucks are always the most cock-sure and it's hilarious.

    Selection bias is the bias introduced by the selection of individuals, groups or data for analysis in such a way that proper randomization is not achieved, thereby ensuring that the sample obtained is not representative of the population intended to be analyzed. It is sometimes referred to as the selection effect.

    Picking a bunch of headlines out of Florida because they have the most liberal laws that allow it is a pretty good example of improper randomization.
