    [–] Always always always check the chip reader on an ATM. atlas5280 23 points ago in pics

    In my opinion(especially after the experience in question), any wiggle is too much.

    This skimmer happened to come off in my hand at a light tug. Now though, I check every single reader, and even the slightest play, I don't dip my card.

    I'm fortunate in that the next nearest ATM is a matter of blocks(I live on Manhattan and don't own a car, so I understand that that isjt everyone's reality). End of the day, just be vigilant and be prepared. People want your money.

    [–] PUBG wants to be realistic so it has to change its sights, especially the holosight. In reality the advantage of the holo (and red dot too)is that you can aim with both eyes and the sight goes out of focus, "hiding" the whole casing, while in most games you just look through it with one eye. atlas5280 4 points ago in PUBATTLEGROUNDS

    There in lies the rub.

    CR123's are heavy(relatively) and get hot under load. The aimpoint t-2 batteries just don't. But it comes down to what you need. At the end of the day, you have to weigh your preference as a shooter against your reality. Is turning on and off my optic realistic? Is carrying spare batteries realistic? Am I capable of changing those batteries in the dark? Furthermore, do any of those situations apply to me?

    Having a carbine ready for nighttime home defense and having a carbine ready for nighttime duty work in a hostile environment are wholly separate issues and the ideal set up is different for each.

    Hell, as I mentioned, the access to night vision devices makes all the world of difference.

    I always love seeing this get reposted.

    Just wiggle the reader guys.

    Thanks for the shoutout!

    I mean, I've done a lot of duty night shooting, and I personally would never use an optic as anything other than a last resort. Devices like the MAWL or PEQ-15(even the LA-5 was great) make it my preferred way to shoot lol. Literally a laserbeam out to 200yds

    Edit: I really want a video game that even attempts to recreate the dynamic of real life CQB in regard to light levels and loadout.

    It's literally those two factors that determine real world combat scenarios in most cases. I love video games and I love shooting IRL, but so far the two experiences are so far apart they cant really be talked about like any game is "realistic" in my experience.

    I mean, maybe ESP/wallhacks but no aimbot. Aimbots generally cant replicate natural mouse movement and "snaps" to the targets head. I don't see that in this clip.

    I think it's possible the player had information we dont(like being peaked earlier)

    I prefer to call them Timber Dragons.

    We don't need Congress to figure out that television news has become entertainment, not journalism.

    [–] MoviePass Lost $150 Million in 2017, But Should Subscribers Be Worried? atlas5280 9 points ago in movies

    NYC checking in. The closest theater to my apartment charges a total of 19 bucks a ticket.

    [–] Saudi Arabia is ending a 35-year ban on movie theaters with a screening of "Black Panther." atlas5280 8 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago) in UpliftingNews

    I mean, yeah. Hollywood produces hundreds of films a year, while the US as a whole produces thousands.

    France produces hundreds of films a year, for example, despite Arabic being spoken by roughly 210 million more people than French.

    I'm not sure what you're arguing about. The Arab speaking world represents a huge population of people, yet relatively few Arab language films get made. That's just the facts. Why is that controversial or worthy of debate?

    Edited for spelling and clarity.

    The key term in my statement was relatively. Egypt only has about 200 screens and produces around 40 feature films a year, almost none of which get screened outside of Arab countries.
