    [–] In response to liberals being mean, the_donald returns to their favorite topic. Mass hangings. coheedcollapse 73 points ago * (lasted edited 3 hours ago) in AgainstHateSubreddits

    Not caught by the archive, but they also posted "Yup, the media goes first. Someone shoujld be compiling a list of names and addresses."

    Because, you know, executing the free press totally aligns with their first suggestion that lynching the left is somehow comparable to the justice doled out to high-level Nazis after the war.

    All in a thread where they try to pretend that the left is dangerous because they might hurt republican fee fees in public spaces.

    These people are literally insane. Not just deluded. They're insane.

    [–] Stone face dug up in Iowa backyard coheedcollapse 15 points ago * (lasted edited 13 hours ago) in whatisthisthing

    Yeah. I honestly don't understand how obsessed with cash some people are. Every post about a potential historical find has at least a few threads like "HOARD IT FOR YOURSELF BECAUSE A MUSEUM MIGHT STEAL IT FROM YOU!!!!"

    I mean, I get wanting a payday, but the greater good is also pretty important. And I'd say getting a historical artifact to an organization that will study and preserve it is worth more than whatever you'd get from pawning it to some rich dude to display in his bedroom.

    [–] Making candy coheedcollapse 3 points ago in ArtisanVideos

    Yeah, I hope this doesn't start some shit. The sounds of people creating are just as important as the creation when I watch these things.

    Plus, it's a really crappy thing to do to the original creator/poster when people just rip gifs without attribution and never link back.

    [–] Embracing digital noise coheedcollapse 4 points ago in photography

    These past few generations of digital cameras make noise that is way, way more aesthetically pleasing than before. I'm not sure if it's new sensors, new processing, or what, but even at high ISO I don't find the noise to be nearly as offensive as it was on my older digitals (The D2x, for example).

    At equivalent levels of "pushing" ISO on my newer cameras, I see far less color noise - and I'm almost seeing something that looks filmlike rather than digital (at least until I zoom in). It's quite nice. Because of that, I don't find the need to do aggressive noise reduction nearly as often.

    I remember on my older cameras, even when noise just started appearing, it'd be super unappealing and would generally mess up the color of a photo pretty badly.

    [–] Streamers getting banned for playing copyrighted music... Careful if you stream with custom songs. coheedcollapse 10 points ago in beatsaber

    Yep, unfortunately you can get copyright hit streaming any type of music. Every time I streamed to friends only on Facebook, my stream would get shut down halfway through because I got hit by the automatic detection.

    It's a pain in the ass, kinda. I understand that copyright needs to be exercised, but it's kind of frustrating. Not like anyone is going to use a Beatsaber stream that I'm talking and breathing through as a substitute at all for that music.

    [–] Donald Trump paints the border as a lawless hellhole. But so does American pop culture. coheedcollapse 11 points ago in entertainment

    I mean, kinda, yeah. If it's built solidly on a misinformed public and misinformed politicians getting wound up about a television's show exaggerated portrayal of reality.

    [–] Donald Trump paints the border as a lawless hellhole. But so does American pop culture. coheedcollapse 55 points ago in entertainment

    It's fucking sad to me that policy is being shaped at the highest level via pop culture tropes.

    Like, seriously. How many people genuinely pull for torture being a thing because it works on 24?

    It's like a hyper-dangerous (to human rights) version of people thinking police can pull trace evidence from every crime scene or zoom in at a pixel level on pictures while still maintaining resolution.

    [–] The choir doesnt sing anymore in this abandoned chicago church. [OC] [656x1019] coheedcollapse 16 points ago in AbandonedPorn

    I've always wanted to go here, but keep on slacking. I hope by the time I finally get around to it it isn't too late.

    I honestly thought it was on the chopping block like nearly a decade ago, which is why it fell off of my radar for so long. Glad it's still there. Maybe I'll head out.

    I do think I tried to get in once a few years back, but none of the entrances were open and everything that looked like it could be an entrance had metal barriers. Maybe I'll swing by soon.

    [–] Yesterday, I had a Christian tell me that we should summarily execute immigrants for crossing the border illegally. 1 sentence later, the same guy tries to lecture me about the evils of abortion. What the fuck does pro life even mean to Christians? Murder immigrants, saved the fetus. What the FUCK? coheedcollapse 11 points ago in atheism

    Yeah, I guess I can see where you're coming from. I just always thought their hatred for dancing was an extension of their desire to attribute everything that involves any sort of human contact with sexuality, and to attribute everything that has anything to do with sexuality to "bad", so it's not super mindblowing to me, with that in mind.

    On the other hand, I'm not sure where the hell they got the Pokemon hatred from. Like some high-level pastor was annoyed by his son playing the game or watching the cartoon, so he decided to brand it off limits for everyone.

    [–] Steam Summer Sale begins in 24 hours coheedcollapse 1 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in Games

    I don't get excited much due to the lack of flash sales, at least tangentially, and the lack of events.

    Flash sales gave devs a chance to cut deeper, but temporarily. I'm convinced they resulted in cheaper lows, since devs could limit their sales to a day or an hour rather than the duration.

    I also miss the time when events were more than glorified sticker collecting. The spring cleaning event was a good step towards that, but I'll always miss the grand days when we had full-on achievement hunts with exclusive rewards. That only accounted for a few sales events, but they were grand as hell.

    [–] Android Talkback gets renamed to Android Accessibility Suite in version 6.2.0 along with a more "material" icon coheedcollapse 5 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in Android

    Hopefully that's the route they take. Or maybe OP will address it. They responded to my ticket pretty quickly and asked for a log, so hopefully they get it figured out.

    [–] Android Talkback gets renamed to Android Accessibility Suite in version 6.2.0 along with a more "material" icon coheedcollapse 13 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in Android

    I hope this means that they roll the zoom feature into this suite and split it out of system. I've got a bizarre issue where the zoom toggle button is stuck "on" in my OP6 and there's no setting to turn it off in settings. Since it's integrated into system, there's seemingly no way to reset settings to default, and only people who had it turned on when they restored settings are going to have the issue, so it's probably super low on their priority list.

    Edit: Well, fixed it myself. On a whim, I decided to check out apps in the market to edit and view system settings. Found one that allowed the viewing of secure settings, gave it permissions via ADB, and edited the value of the setting to 0 to turn it off. Whee.

    [–] T-Mobile might offer a cheap TV streaming bundle real soon, but it all depends on the merger coheedcollapse 2 points ago in tmobile

    Two companies merging, literally by definition, means less competition. Instead of four companies vying for our money, there are three. And it's been shown in the only study that I'm aware of, that having three wireless competitors instead of four is significantly less beneficial to consumers.

    They simply cannot compete as their network is not reminiscent of high prices, and without raising their prices, they will continue to fall into a downward spiral,

    So? They can size down until they can turn a profit and compete as well as they can. Not long ago, T-mobile was in a similar position and they turned it around.

    All I'm saying is I don't want the US to become Canada. They've got three wireless carriers and look where it got them.

    As much as I'd love to believe that T-Mobile will remain the same after sucking up pretty much its only competition in the budget wireless sector, I do not trust any company to not put profits before consumers, especially with so little competition and with a service that people need to function, like phone service or internet.

    [–] Evoland 2 finally out on Android! Instant sale 5.99 from 8.99 EUR coheedcollapse 2 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in AndroidGaming

    It's quite good, although I gave up on it during a specific section where you had to play a bejeweled-type game with a bunch of vikings. They kept kicking my ass because I'm awful at that genre of game, so I never picked it back up to play it again.

    Still worth the cash. It was probably my issue, rather than something with the game. Just wish I could've skipped the stupid section.

    [–] T-Mobile might offer a cheap TV streaming bundle real soon, but it all depends on the merger coheedcollapse 1 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in tmobile

    I'd rather have more competition than another overpriced TV bundle.

    I cut the cord over a decade ago. With Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and an OTA antenna, I have no need for traditional TV.

    Anyway, it freaks me out that telecoms are getting back into "everything" as a business. Why does every internet provider have to do television as well? Causes huge conflicts of interest when it comes to squashing non-traditional cable, especially now that the rules that stopped them from fucking with data are gone.

    Bottom line, as much as many of us love Tmobile, their main goal is to maximize profit. Right now, they're the underdog, and it's profitable to act as such. When they're a big dog, they will start acting like a big dog. I guarantee it.

    [–] And right on cue, here is r/conspiracy calling the child immigration issue a "manufactured crisis", courtesy of Rush Limbaugh coheedcollapse 31 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in TopMindsOfReddit

    Yeah, that's what I was going to say. We've got literally dozens of photos and videos of actual kids in cages, interviews with employees, first-hand reports from people in the field. Do they think that because one "fake" was mistakenly used through a chain of misattributions on Twitter that the whole crisis is fake?

    [–] Allright, guess I'm here now coheedcollapse 6 points ago in TopMindsOfReddit

    From the thread trying to debunk OP's findings:

    It seems that this is a push to make the sub look crazy.

    Should....should we tell him?

    [–] 66% of console players still prefer physical games over digital - Gamasutra coheedcollapse 1 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago) in Games

    I don't mind digital if it's a lot cheaper. I prefer Steam digital over console physical. I might be willing to spend a few bucks more for physical with console, or for some nice art/a game I'm really fond of but price takes precedence.

    I don't usually sell games I really like anyway.

    [–] [Voidu] Yakuza 0 Pre-Order ($13.28 using code SUMMER18) coheedcollapse 2 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago) in GameDeals

    Good timing, as well. My PS4 just shitted out on me. I usually don't buy games at launch since I expect them to get cheaper with time, but I bought Yakuza 0 for PC to console myself and stand-in for Kiwami, which I was in the middle of playing when my PS4 stopped booting up.

    [–] How to get custom roms on retroarch? coheedcollapse 3 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago) in RetroArch

    Since Retroarch uses checksums to determine the status of a rom, it's not likely you'll be able to have that in the list without manually adding it. You'll even have issues with unpatched roms, since Retroarch is looking for non-introed, unmodified roms.

    Instead, you can load your desired core and "load content" manually and it should run it.

    Not sure if it still works, since I've been using Launchbox to get all of my stuff running, but this script helped me get custom roms into my Retroarch library in the past. It might be a bit complicated for what you need, though, since you can just run it directly in RA.

    [–] Study: Almost half of diabetics skip medical care due to costs coheedcollapse 13 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago) in EverythingScience

    Yeah, same. I know a few people personally who died of cancer that would've been vastly more treatable had they detected it early, and I'm only in my freaking thirties. Problem is, that nagging stomach ache is far more likely to be acid reflux than cancer, so it's hard to convince yourself that the initial doctor's visit plus follow up to a specialist costing a nice chunk of what you make in a year just to find out you need to cut down on the pizza is worth it.

    I mean, of course, in hindsight, it's worth it, but I'm constantly trying to convince myself that whatever symptom I'm running into is harmless because I can't afford to get a checkup every time I'm suspicious something might be slightly wrong with my body.

    It's going to be even worse for people with preexisting conditions pretty soon. My wife's got a condition that is mostly benign as long as she keeps active and stays generally healthy, but she was outright refused insurance before ACA kicked in. Costs are bad enough for those of us with insurance, but if ACA rolls back completely and insurance companies are again allowed to reject those who need care the most, a lot of people are going to die because they can't afford their care.
