    Pas vraiment de problème, puisqu'on peut désactiver le module via les options. De mémoire : "Préférences" > "Grammaire et orthographe" > "Désactiver Module de Novlangue SJW" ou quelque chose comme ça.

    C'est juste dommage qu'il soit activé par défaut. Mais bon, j'imagine que même Microsoft doit faire un peu de virtue-signalling de temps en temps.

    Ils s'en sortent pas trop mal, je trouve. Au sud et à l'ouest on a que de la flotte et l'Espagne, donc évidemment que l'exercice est plus facile pour les allemands...

    [–] Do you think Ana is a Muslim? cob59 2 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago) in AnaMains

    I think Overwatch writers and designers stay away from religion as much as they can. There's no christian cross in King's Row's chapel. There's no explicit reference (that I know) to actual Buddhism in Nepal. And it doesn't seem like the Temple of Anubis is an active place of worship per se.

    So if there are pieces of lore Blizzard keeps unpublished about Ana, I don't even think that writers bothered mentioning her religion in it.

    Blame the IEEE 754 for this, not Javascript.

    Imagine "Over the Top" but with this instead of arm wrestling. And Jim Carrey's the protagonist.

    If anything I'm trying to balance the game around Diamond.
    Btw, Silver players deserve a balanced game as much as Masters do.

    [–] Seven deadly sins as social media cob59 3 points ago in funny

    As I've said elsewhere, I assumed "Avarice" meant the same thing in English and in my own language (French). It seems I was mistaking on that. Whatever definition is closer to the original latin word, I find it strange that the English version of the 7 deadly sins feature Envy and Greed (which are almost equivalent) but says nothing about stinginess (which is how Avarice is described among Roman Catholics).

    [–] Seven deadly sins as social media cob59 1 points ago in funny

    English is not my native language, and I'm noticing "Avarice" exists in both our languages but doesn't mean the same thing. So I'm trying to figure out why.

    [–] Seven deadly sins as social media cob59 1 points ago in funny

    It can't be a desire, because avarice is about something you already have. It's possible the word used in English shifted from its original meaning, though.

    [–] Seven deadly sins as social media cob59 0 points ago in funny

    Greed is "I want more".
    Avarice is "I don't want less".

    Greed is closer to Envy than it is to Avarice.

    [–] ELI5: What is an API? cob59 1 points ago in explainlikeimfive

    We programmers are lazy fucks spending more time wondering how to use things others have developed than actually developing them. We call "libraries" other people's work and "API" the (hopefully) short description in programy language on how to use it in our own program.

    [–] ELI5: How do procedurally generated video games work? How are players not constantly stuck in a situation where they can no longer progress due to the level generation? cob59 2 points ago in explainlikeimfive

    "Procedurally generated" doesn't necessarily mean everything's purely random. In The Binding of Isaac, each room is created from a template-room designed "by hand" (non-procedurally) and filled with random types and quantities of enemies and loot. By carefully designing those template-rooms and deciding what can be randomized in them, you can make sure the player is never stuck in a level because of unfortunate RNG.

    They're not synonyms though...

    Brigitte (and Moira to a lesser extent) needed a Nerf more than Mercy did, IMO.

    [–] Seven deadly sins as social media cob59 1 points ago in funny

    I wonder why Greed is considered one of the capital sins in the Anglo-Saxon world when it's Avarice in the rest of the world...

    I don't think this buff is enough to get her out of trash-tier though.

    [–] Why do French people have their accents when they speak English? cob59 2 points ago in French

    Also, mispronouncing vowels that don't necessarily exist in (metropolitan) French:

    /ɪ/ sounds (as in 'fit') pronounced as /i/ sound (as in 'feet').
    /ʊ/ sounds (as in 'look') pronounced as /u/ sounds (as in 'Luke').
