    I think having always lived on the west coast there has always been a struggle with using the internet when it comes to spoilers. It's not that I think spoilers are the end of the world, but there is this 3 hour window of high alert where you have to be cautious of where you look on the internet or you'll have the simplest but broad plot points revealed or completely spoiled before a show is broadcasted on the west coast. At about 6PM sharp yesterday I had already seen my twitter feed flooded with headlines like "Jon Snow's fate revealed" which doesn't say much about the story but it let me know that a major, highly anticipated plot point is going to finally be answered in this episode which took a little sparkly out of the big moment. So when I found myself discussing the episode today with my coworkers I was more interested in everything else that happened in the episode then with the big, worst keep secret in the history of the show, moment. Also all the major players featured so far this season are like boarder the line between super hero/villain and gods.

    I've been too busy lately to pay attention to what's been happening in North Carolina but for as observer from a far, it shows me that we need better education on the subject. There is so much that is unknown about gender/identify that it makes voting for legislation like this hard for the average voter when they know little of the subject.
  5. I had to vote for Emily. She lives in my neighborhood and I've almost collided into once when I was out on a run a few months ago, so you know, we've had a moment.
  6. The nice part about voting for Johaug is that my odds would be a nice 1:1, where the current 12 of you would be fighting over 1 girl. :shades:

    It's crazy what some companies demand out of their employees. I was talking with a friend last night and she was laying out her work schedule over the next several weeks and she's basically going nonstop all day and night for 3 weeks. I don't even think she makes much more then I do in salary to be able to justify the sacrifice of her work-life balance.

    I don't think so. After rune you have: dragon - not able to be acquired in the traditional way but still bits of dragon metal barrows - pieces of armor from the barrows brothers bandos - the armor from the god/god's generals torva - more powerful version of bandos from Nex's generals testu - crafted from the East with inanimate materials malevolent - crafted from energy and other materials achto - something something raids, but don't think there's anything magical there. Wut Wut
  10. I think Taylor is hotter, but I also think she's way to thin. Voted Inna.

    There's no point to observing daylight savings. An absolute garbage tradition. Arizona doesn't observe it and it's one of the few things I miss about living there. I still had a very productive day, but my body clock is so off right now. I also did my taxes today, it wasn't very complicated, maybe took 20 minutes total to do free with Turbo Tax online, and I'm getting a fat tax return too. So no lawyers, no help, just me, the internet, and a few clicks.

    He might be the biggest comedy goldmine since Bush though! ...Wait, the Bush era brought us Family Guy. Never mind. But Family Guy came out when Clinton was still in office. Nothing like a failed pop culture reference.

    I hadn't heard that rumor yet. Ghosts was the first title that was constructed by Infinity Ward after their whole employee purge in 2010. It's not surprising that they're continuing the series, but they have a lot work to do to impress the gaming community. I think the advance movement system is here to stay for a while, but I won't be mad if they move away from it.

    I just think at some point they become "too young". 7 year difference at my age is a big difference. I think if you're like 40 dating a 30 year old it's fine, but a 25 year old dating someone that's pretty much still in high school is a bit weird. Oddly enough i got a call from her earlier today asking me if i had any interest in maybe taking her sister out who's new in town. I agreed to it without knowing what her sister looks like. I didn't really want to ask for a picture of her before i said yes or no because that would pretty much just come off as douchey. She did refer to her as her "hot older sister" so there's hope. I wish you the best lol

    I don't date people if they're not compatible with my lifestyle, so no one under 21. I don't think there is anything wrong with dating or seeing anyone young, it's just I would have no [bleep]ing clue what to do.

    This is highly speculative, but i think CoD might be returning to the WW2 era, or at least something based on that type of game. Apparently AW added the M1 Garand recently, which some people believe might be a hint towards what they might already be working on. I also heard a rumor that IW is working on a game based on that style/era. It's good and bad. Like i previously mentioned, people always refer to CoD4 and to some degree MW2 as being the best CoD games in history. But i think that's purely because of nostalgia. Those games with today's players are probably just as likely to be as infuriating and as bad as the current games. Additionally, i think it's going to be a tough transition going from the fast paced/movement based games we currently have, to a much slower game with no "advanced movement". That's funny! I heard IW was going to push the series into space lol, but who knows. I do agree with you, it would be hard for them to slow the game down and then they'd also have to remove a bulk of the customizations which has become a huge part of the identity of the multiplayer. For the sake of nostalgia how about a Battlefield: Medal of Honor? That would be crazy.

    Activision bought MLG for like $50 million, so they're going to look to get their studios to make eSport options in their multiplayer. You can blame Activision also for the in-game purchases too, they've started to do it with all their console games. I heard a whisper that Infinity Ward's next COD is going to be something new, but I can't even remember the source so.. don't trust me lol. Also I believe Treyarch is working on a new series, I believe the Black Ops series is over.

    I hear BO3 is a must buy :) I think the OnePlus is the best buy for your $$ or just buy something used off eBay. https://oneplus.net/x I already have BO3 on Xbox One. It's alright, but i kinda lose interest in it really fast. CoD just isn't as captivating as it was a few years ago. I think that because the development cycle was limited to 2 years for each studio there wasn't a lot of time to innovate the series, now that Activision has tapped in Sledgehammer as the 3rd studio developing a COD title, I think each succeeding COD title will start to show more innovation and hopefully be able to recapture the excitement of the earlier titles. BO3/Treyarch were the first to be given 3 years of development and it shows through the wealth of content that was available at ship. I also think there is going to be a increasingly larger focus on eSports going forward.

    I've yet to meet anyone abroad who knows that Washington is also a state, but I'm confident that most people my age can identify at least 70-80% of all countries in Europe/North Africa, South America, North America (including states).

    Race and cultural identity is a very interesting and complex conversation here in America, but I think compared to countries in the EU the heritage roots of those that migrate from Africa (or Middle East, etc) are still 1st or 2nd generations so culturally they still identify strongly with their heritage where as those who have migrated across the Atlantic have already been here for generations and have come to identify as Americans and not so much the color of their skin.

    There are pros and cons to standardize testing, but from my experience standardized testing doesn't* dictate a whole lot into the day-today besides ensuring that everyone is learning at an equal level. If anything the standards should be raised or modified to reflect diversity in education to reflect the needs of the entire student body. The most popular question that is asked to a minor: "What do you want to do/be?" The way the education system is currently setup, the vast majority of the population can't answer that question until their mid to late 20s. There isn't enough established to help our youth discover an early passion.

    It's really that there isn't enough public funding available to offering anything more then what's required.
