    [–] SHROUD 34 KILLS WIN atlas5280 3 points ago in PUBATTLEGROUNDS

    No one's acting like there aren't people trying to kill him. He's a talented player and wins gun fights outright, even with the stream sniping disadvantage.

    But to say that him winning a 34 kill game on stream is the same as him getting that many kills off stream is disingenuous. Watching his stream it's clear, especially to him, that he's being fed.

    He regularly addresses this on stream, with comments like "my normal games are nothing like this, I never even see this many ", etc.

    You're being downvoted, but I'm with you. His streamed games are a fucking joke. People just run at him. The game right after this he literally had 10 feeders in the first 4 minutes.

    [–] What is your most downvoted comment and why? atlas5280 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Well I'd argue the feelings of isolation are probably pretty common in people who skid grades. You're probably right about the becoming a serial murderer though.

    [–] What is your most downvoted comment and why? atlas5280 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Ted kazcynscy cites skipping forward grades as a source of tremendous feelings of isolation that likely contributed to his mindset later in life that led to him becoming the Unabomber

    [–] New Mexico will restore evolution to science standards atlas5280 3 points ago in news

    Doesn't that mean that if you believe in evolution, it's likely that if you look to you left and right, you'll see one person that's on the fence and one person that rejects it?

    What the fuck.

    Solid stuff, but in my experience unnesecarily expensive.

    So I've been going to Seattle once a year in the summer for a few years now. Those hills blow my fucking mind. If you fall walking down one, you'll just roll to the bottom. Like what the fuck. Is ice not a thing there? How do cars not just slide down Queen Anne Hill?

    The idea of riding fixed up or down one of those hills is honestly fucking terrifying.

    Columbus makes one for about 200, enve for about twice that. Not sure of any aluminum ones off the top of my head.

    [–] Reddit, you seemed to like my first menu board. So here’s my second. atlas5280 3 points ago in PenmanshipPorn

    Oh hey cool. We stayed at the teatro for our wedding. I got super wrecked at the nickel before the ceremony, and then the management wouldnt let our dog stay at the hotel(she was barking), and we were super drunk. So our siblings had to take her. So the nickel was the only nice thing about the whole experience.

    Also nice handwriting!

    [–] Official Discussion: Blade Runner 2049 [SPOILERS] atlas5280 3 points ago in movies

    I totally agree with you on point 1.

    On point 2, I feel that the major distinction between the voice over you're referring to in the theatrical cut(which was removed in subsequent versions) and the voice over in br2049 is an issue of diagesis. Diagetic in film theory means "in the world", as in, it has a real source in the film.

    The voice over in the original was a film noir trope and was mandated by the script and studio, Ridley Scott and Harrison Ford both hated it from the between. It's a classic non-diagetic track: it's coming from nowhere for no reason.

    The recordings played in br2049 are diagetic (they're recordings that exist in the world) and serve a narrative function(they cause the characters to react, where as the narration in blade runner did not influence cause and effect at all.)

    While the movie is not without issue, I didn't mind the recordings, except that I think the movie could have existed without direct reference to the original and been just as good, if not better than it is.

    [–] Official Discussion: Blade Runner 2049 [SPOILERS] atlas5280 1 points ago in movies

    Well, if the movie was filmed in IMAX format(as in, the image is filmed using the larger IMAX aspect ratio), then that's true, because in order to convert to the smaller 2d widescreen ratio, some of the image is lost. If the film wasn't shot in the IMAX aspect ratio, then nothing is lost on the widescreen, and in fact IMAX is the converted(and therefore arguably inferior) format.

    That's not to take away from IMAX theaters. They're going to be nicer and well maintained.

    It's a personal preference, but in this case I'll take Roger Deakin's advice and stick with 2d standard widescreen.

    It's only lost if it's shot in Imax, which br2049 wasn't. So the Imax version is actually just blown up. According to the linked discussion, Roger Deakins said it was shot in 2d widescreen and converted to other formats in post.

    edit: typos

    Cygolite has some legit options, just depends on how much you want to shell out.

    [–] Weekly Questions Thread [Posted Every Wednesday] atlas5280 1 points ago in FixedGearBicycle

    Pretty sure it's the number of reductions of wall thickness, not the number of ends that are butted. Single butting is a single step down from thickest to thinnest, double butting is two steps, and so on.

    By your explanation, it sounds like triple butting isn't a thing, but it is.

    Depends on your clamp diameter, but the Richey comp alu bars are like 35 bucks, as long as you want 31.8mm

    [–] Nice and slow morning ride with sketti atlas5280 2 points ago in FixedGearBicycle

    Genuinely curious: are those handlebars wrapped with no tape involved at all? Wont it come unwrapped after a while? Or does it actually not important what direction it's wrapped in/finished with?

    [–] I bought the $20 frame I was asking about in the questions thread! atlas5280 9 points ago in FixedGearBicycle

    I'm actually super pumped for you. Be frugal and patient with the parts! It'll come together. Just feel it out and look for deals.

    I say splurge on tires and a saddle. Everything else can be whatever comes your way, price wise. This has the potential to be the dopest, cheapest bike ever.
