    [–] My neighbors discussing a guy (red) who walks the neighborhood (blue) every night laodaron 68 points ago in cringepics

    This is the reason Facebook groups exist. Middle aged middle class women complaining about stupid shit incessantly.

    [–] Please make this an option in endless mode laodaron 6 points ago in MarioMaker

    Because no one chooses levels that look bad. If the game just serves them up, you'll at least take a shot at them.

    First of all, no it won't. Second of all, how do you know what Fox wants?

    [–] TIL In 2014, a three-year-old girl, Karina Chikitova, survived 11 days in the Siberian wilderness with only her dog for company. She ate wild berries and drank from a river, curling up next to her dog for warmth. She was saved when her dog went back to her village and guided rescuers to her. laodaron 3 points ago in todayilearned

    Ffs, he knew about the berries

    And, yet, got it wrong. I'd say that goes against any argument that he was "extremely experienced". Freak accidents happen to experienced people all of the time, deliberately wrong choices generally don't.

    A week or two earlier and he shoulda been fine to leave

    Or, in other, less obfuscating terms, he wasn't experienced enough to know better.

    so i dont see why everyone expects him to know how

    Because you keep saying a stupid thing, which is is that he was an experienced survivalist. He was not.

    he wasnt some practiced hunter

    Or, in other words again, he wasn't extremely experienced at one of the more basic parts of being a survivalist. I mean, hunting and preserving the meat is something children learn. If you're going to pretend you're a survivalist, you should probably know the absolute basics about food and food preservation.

    All of that being said, he was just a stupid kid that felt invincible because of several other experiences in his life. He shouldn't have died because he was stupid, but he did, and it's important that we acknowledge that in conversations about him.

    Could be fun, the old NWO is out cutting a promo, and they get interrupted by the new New World Order? Bischoff as their manager? No idea, but maybe.

    [–] Spoilers: special raw in two weeks laodaron 6 points ago in SquaredCircle

    Because the Fox deal starts up in a few months and they need to prove that they can move ratings.

    [–] [ExtremeRules Spoilers] What an incredible shot. laodaron 6 points ago in SquaredCircle

    So why have the feud if Drew has already got a pinfall over taker? So taker can win the blowoff? Seems a bit weird. Or do you want Drew to get all of the pins? Either way, seems weird.

    So he was extremely experienced, but didn't know about notoriously hard country in Alaska? Extremely experienced, but didn't know summer is harder travel than winter? Extremely experienced, but didn't know that there were berries that looked alike, one poisonous, the other not? Extremely experienced, but couldn't preserve the most common meat in the area?

    I mean, he sounds like a mook they put on Naked and Afraid, not an actual survivalist. I've only seen the movie, so I don't know all of the details, but if your intent was to defend him, you've failed as badly as he did adventuring in Alaska.

    [–] Shit no time. laodaron 4 points ago in gaming

    Nope, just checking to see if his kids were following the rules like bedtime. No reason to go after him like that.

    [–] Shit no time. laodaron 8 points ago in gaming

    In the days of CRT TVs, if you turned it off, there was often static electricity still on the screen. When I'd be watching TV after bed time, my dad would come down and rub his hand over the screen to see if I had been watching recently.

    Come to St Louis, where we use the term Hoosier to mean hillbilly, redneck, white trash, sister fucking idiots.

    [–] Masvidal checking on his friend Ben after he gets viciously knocked out laodaron 3 points ago in ufc

    Not only is it acceptable, I wish it happened more often. Kabib telling Connor "you want to talk now, let's talk now" during the fight was probably the best part of that fight.

    [–] Masvidal checking on his friend Ben after he gets viciously knocked out laodaron 10 points ago in ufc

    The gloating was the best part. Ben Askren made it personal. Ben Askren is allowed to say what he wants with impunity before the fight, but after the fight it has to be solemn? Bullshit. Masvidal was basically doing what Ben did before the fight. Talking shit.

    I'm glad Ben is ok, but I'm glad he got crushed.

    [–] I think that the removal of 100 Mario Challenge is making the average level clear rates lower laodaron 1 points ago in MarioMaker

    So, I think the OP is a little off when discussing clear rates, but I think that this makes the raw numbers look way off. Levels that would typically have many more clears (even if the rate is lower) seem more appealing to players. Levels with minimal clears (easily skipped) will scare more players away.

    [–] I think that the removal of 100 Mario Challenge is making the average level clear rates lower laodaron 13 points ago in MarioMaker

    I think Boo! is more damaging than this, but I also think that this is an issue. Skipping with no punishment causes players to just dump levels that they likely would have beaten with a few more tries.

    But I don't think it changes the rate by much, but it definitely skews the numbers. If you have a moderately difficult level, you will certainly see fewer clears than would be expected in 100 Man. What this will do is scare players away from your levels. I have a medium difficulty level that is 1/220 clears. There's no way that this is because every player just can't beat the level, it just might take them several attempts. But with Boo! and the ability to skip it, my level is more or less in purgatory now. Nintendo needs to evaluate how they can get more visibility on the unknown makers.

    Honestly, unless you have a Discord community or a streaming audience to bump your levels, or a name already coming from SMM2, I think it's very difficult for creators to get their levels out, and things like punishment-free skips is a large part of that.
