    [–] In final-hour order, court rules that Alabama can destroy digital voting records after all atlas5280 2 points ago in nottheonion

    I mean, that sounds like a digital voting machine. Just because the interface is "analog" doesn't mean shit, since like the article states, no one counts the paper ballots. The machines are all that matter. The article even mentions that a state wide paper ballot recount is prohibitively expensive. So my question still stands, but maybe formatted difgerently:

    Why, in 2017, are computers which are used to count paper ballots, not capable of saving every single ballot image it tallies? How was this ever allowed to be a feasible design feature? How was preserving voting records not the number 2 design goal for these machines, behind the number one goal of accurately tallying votes?

    Honestly, this situation is mind boggling. More reason to just never move to Alabama. Honestly sad to be alive to witness shit like this.

    [–] What are some deeply unsettling facts? atlas5280 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Here's one: most of the top comments of this thread are just 3 accounts recycling top answers from the last time this was asked.

    [–] With the additions of the gun-specific scopes, we need a firing range more than ever atlas5280 2 points ago in PUBATTLEGROUNDS

    Red bull heals bullet wounds. Let's drop any pretext of realism mattering. Zeroing all sights was a good feature. They removed it for no good reason.

    This answer really makes me dislike that guy. What a fucking stupid thing to say. These are the kind of statements that help me buy into the "blueballs is a talentless swamp of a studio" mentality. Of course there's fucking practice in real life. You know what isn't real life? 100 person fucking deathmatches and red bull healing bullet wounds. What the fuck man I just lost any and all respect for this studio. They really did just get lucky. It's honestly sad.

    [–] It is Finland's 100th birthday, so let's give them something nice to wake up to! Reddit, what do you like about Finland? atlas5280 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Simo Hayha, a Finnish sniper during the winter war.

    His Russian nickname was the "white death".

    Basically the baddest ass there has ever been.

    They sent an entire regiment to kill him. When he killed them all, they carpet bombed the forrest he was in. That didn't work either.

    [–] Ring stuck on finger atlas5280 -3 points ago in nonononoyes

    I'm disgusted this is the second highest comment. They make rings out of tungsten. Get fucked, no one is cutting that ring off gracefully. You're either dangerously uninformed or evil, either way I can't believe you've been upvoted to this point. This is bad advice for anyone who bought a non-soft-metal ring.

    [–] PUBG 60fps on Xbox one X atlas5280 1 points ago in PUBATTLEGROUNDS

    Oh man, if only they hadn't addressed this 20 years ago with multimedia API's.

    [–] when are we going to have ping block? atlas5280 1 points ago in PUBATTLEGROUNDS

    You make a fair argument. Your first comment was maybe just too hyperbolic to be considered serious.

    What do you expect? Do you believe you're the exception or the rule?

    [–] U.S. laws should have a mandatory 10 yr. review to see if the law implemented has benefited society or damaged it. atlas5280 3 points ago in Showerthoughts

    Son and brother to a drug-offence felons. Prison didn't help their addiction whatsoever. Tell me in what universe the war on drugs has positively affected addiction, addicted people, or the public at large.

    Or don't, since your fucking salary has depended on it for your entire career.

    You can't prosecute someone for doing something you elected to have them do. Your only recourse is to not fucking do it.

    Do you have any experience with the criminal justice system?

    Drug addiction might be horrible, but I challenge you to explain how incarcerating someone for years helps in literally any way.

    [–] Terry Crews says Russell Simmons asked him to give target of sexual-assault allegations 'a pass' atlas5280 1 points ago in news

    Let me tell you, you may fold under questioning.

    Yeah no shit. Like, I might also fail to back a trailer into a parking spot, or mis-judge a free hand 8 oz. Do you seriously think it was pertinent to point out that I "admitted to a conspiracy"?

    What did it add to the discussion?

    Are you some sort of mental ninja that trains everyday in the dark arts of willpower, just in case you ever get tested?

    Real talk, your comment is fucking hilarious and grating at the same time.

    I dunno, I've done some work related shadiness(nothing illegal, just a "let's all conspire against our boss for our own sanity" type schemes), and we treated shit like it was a South American coup. No paper trail, blood oaths, etc and this was over shit like how inventory gets counted. I really agree that it just takes a stupid person to talk openly about shit like sexual assault, money laundering, or conspiring with a foreign government. But hey, it happens everyday.

    Good thing we're not a fanatical Empire threatening the sovereignty of other nations, that would only surrender when our own total existence was threatened. What former aggressor nations like Japan or Germany "wants" in regard to their military doesn't really matter, since they forfeit their chance at ever having a real one again.

    Doesn't excuse the crimes of American servicemen though.
