    [–] Sony isn’t 100% to blame guys gorcorps 6 points ago in memes

    They didn't just ask for 50% of the profits, they also said they'd cover 50% of the costs. Seems fair considering the "creativity" portion you think isn't even worth 5% is what made it a massive hit. Sony didn't know what the fuck to do with spiderman anymore, and Disney/Marvel knew exactly what to do. But fuck the creative people right? They should just do it for the exposure...

    Yes, it's easier to keep warm by adding layers. If I'm too hot, there's a limit to how many layers I can remove before I'm arrested.

    [–] What will you never stop complaining about? gorcorps 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I wonder if years from now we'll use "this is America" the same way

    It's about the same thing, just from a different decade

    [–] Sony Pictures' Official Statement on Spidey leaving MCU gorcorps 184 points ago in movies

    I hope it doesn't ruin everything. These two spiderman movies are near the top of the list for favorite Marvel movies in my mind, and I even like them a little better than the Toby McG ones.

    Please don't throw this all away guys, you've struck gold and just need to play nice to keep it going.

    [–] Lifelong Honda owner looking to possibly try something suv for fam of 4? gorcorps 0 points ago in whatcarshouldIbuy

    Love buying American with everything else but I think most agree that the average Honda and Toyota lasts longer and has less problems than Ford/GM.

    Your first couple sentences make it sound like you're there, but then this sentence still doesn't sound like it. What do you mean you "love buying American for everything else"? You ARE buying American with Toyota... that's my point. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise, there's plenty of people out there who like to thump their chest and say that they'd never buy a "foreign" brand like Toyota, but they're just ignorant of where things are made and can't get past the label.

    At the end of the day, none of it really matters as long as you're getting something that you're happy with and will last. But there are people out there who avoid Toyota/Honda/Kia/Hyundai/Subaru just because they don't consider that as "buying American"...and those people are all flat out ignorant regarding the state of the auto industry.

    [–] Possibly buying my first e-drum kit tomorrow. What to look for with a used set? gorcorps 3 points ago in edrums

    I'm not sure how much tweaking the guy did, but if he lets you... it might be worth resetting to factory defaults just to ensure the module is acting just like it was new. You can of course just try it out as he left if first, and if something feels off try resetting it:

    Other than that, yeah just play it like normal and make sure everything triggers properly. Might also want to check out an unboxing or something just to make sure he's including everything that it came with. With a newer Roland model like that, there's not a lot that could have gone wrong.

    Sounds like a good deal if it all works, good luck!

    [–] Lifelong Honda owner looking to possibly try something suv for fam of 4? gorcorps 0 points ago in whatcarshouldIbuy

    Yup. Personally the Palisade would be the first one I looked at if I was in the OPs shoes. I got the 2019 Santa Fe last year and I'm very impressed with the interior quality, and the Palisade is even a step above that.

    Both models are pretty hot right now though, so it might be tough for OP to test drive one for another few months. All you can do is call around though, as some dealers keep one on hand specifically for test driving.

    [–] Lifelong Honda owner looking to possibly try something suv for fam of 4? gorcorps 2 points ago in whatcarshouldIbuy

    I'm going to have to clarify one of your statements here, so there's less misinformation out there:

    I feel that Honda/Toyota/Lexus are overall the best cars to own, and that American-made cars just don't last as long and have more problems.

    Honda and Toyota are largely American made brands. In fact, Toyota usually holds the record every year for "most American brand" because they use more parts, steel, and assemble the vast majority of their vehicles in the US. Lexus makes a couple models in the US, but many of them are actually made in Canada (like the RX350) with a few specific ones imported. The only common Toyota vehicle that isn't US made is the Prius.

    I know what you meant was the big 3 (Ford/GM/Chrysler) but please don't confuse where the labels are headquartered with where they're actually made. Same goes for Kia & Hyundai, they have very large new facilities in the south and make a lot of their vehicles in the US. There are a lot of people that assume the "foreign" brands aren't US made, but that hasn't been true for a very long time.

    [–] That's cute. gorcorps 14 points ago in wholesomememes


    [–] She just showed up. We kept her around. Today it became official. She's happy about it. gorcorps 2 points ago in aww

    The first one was a stray that found my wife (long before I met her). She was pawing at the door and my wife opened it, and this little cat strolled in like she owned the place and never really left. Well, it makes sense why she was trying to find some place now as my wife quickly discovered she was pregnant. She was able to find homes for all of the kittens except for one, so that's how she ended up with two.

    At least mama cat has a reason to not want to be held since who knows what kind of life she had before this, so that makes sense. But my wife had the 2nd one as a kitten. He just seemed to develop the same type of feeling about being held as his mom, so I wonder if it was a learned behavior. Both of them will totally rest on your lap and sleep on you all day (mama cat is especially affectionate) but the second you try to stand up with them still in your arms they'll be scrambling.

    I've been trying to hold them more to get them used to it, but they're at least 6-7 years old now and are pretty set in their ways.

    [–] First Lightning security key for iPhones released, and it works with USB-C too gorcorps 1 points ago in gadgets

    I agree, that's why I'm looking for something more secure to take it's place. What I'd like is instead of a fingerprint, use this key instead, but it sounds like it's simply in addition to what I'm already using. Sounds more cumbersome than I was hoping.

    This post is a perfect analogy to modern media and how misinformation spreads like wildfire. The amount of upvotes this got despite the top comment pointing out is fake pretty much nails how nobody actually fact checks a fucking thing anymore

    [–] Mythbusters fire a ball at 50mph out of a cannon on a truck driving at 50mph in the opposite direction! gorcorps 76 points ago in Damnthatsinteresting

    I remember this episode. They put a shit load of work into this in order to get it right (it was very difficult to get the cannon firing exactly the same speed as the truck), and in the end it was mostly coincidence that it was that centered.

    [–] U.S. Steel plans to lay off hundreds of workers in Michigan gorcorps 2 points ago in news

    The problem is that these companies like US Steel always get greedy. The tariffs increased steel prices (but at the previous supply level) and these fuckers at US Steel said "we have a bunch of idle capacity that wasn't making us money before, but now it will!" The market flooded with steel that was produced simply to capitalize on the spike in prices, and the market adjusted to the massive increase in supply when demand hasn't changed.

    Now with the prices dropping again, US Steel is too inefficient to save money any other way, so they just shut things down again and ruin the lives of their employees because they don't know how to run a maintainable steel company anymore.

    [–] U.S. Steel plans to lay off hundreds of workers in Michigan gorcorps 5 points ago in news

    Pretty typical of US Steel unfortunately. When prices are high they make lofty promises about creating jobs and getting idled operations up and running to take advantage of the better prices.

    Then the prices start falling because of all the extra capacity that got brought online in a hurry to capitalize on the prices, and the only way USS knows how to save money is by cutting labor. It's a never ending cycle of shitting all over their employees when the market turns sour.

    [–] Got in a motorcycle crash and could stand up afterwards? Nah, that won't do. gorcorps 3 points ago in FUCKYOUINPARTICULAR

    Looks like the person that got hit was the one that caused the first crash. That's just karma making sure they were hurt as badly as the person they crashed into

    [–] Is this a decent amp? Behringer k900fx gorcorps 2 points ago in edrums

    Don't bother with that particular Roland, I have something similar and it's pretty disappointing. Undersized for what you want in a drump amp, and it just sounds gutless. The k900fx won't have thundering lows either (you won't really see that until you get to a 15" speaker size or so) but it'll probably due for what you're hoping to get out of it.

    It's not a bad price for it, just make sure it's working properly. Behringer is decent, but they don't have good enough quality to survive if they were pushed past their limits or not treated well. If it works, it should be good enough for you.
