Rather annoyed I discovered fitness too late to get involved with a football team.

...could've played on the same team as my personal trainer.

When you, on a whim, try to log in to a site that you haven't logged into in years, and they've changed domains, and your username is registered, but you can't get your password and the emails for resetting it don't go to your email: annoying

Uhhhh if an admin could help me out, that'd be great?

If you tell me which account this is, I'll reset the password and send an email to the address associated with that account

I don't know. Would it?

Okay, is it just me, or is Facebook failing to load, like, half the images on anyone else's feeds?

The incessant whining about "lore rape" in Shadow of War. From what I've seen, most of these supposed instances fall into two categories:

...

2. Can be explained by the game being set in a different continuity from the books (and I think the movies as well).

Yeah was gonna say it's not meant to be cannon, right?

Even if it was, lore is the very least of Shadow of War's problems.

This, all day long.

I have a problem.

Every now and then I realize that I am arguing with a stranger on the net because they are defending a genocide.

At least this time they were communists rather than Nazis.

Also they decided that I must be 14 year old troll and therefore they don't have to debate me.

Got two out of three portions of my assignment for my database class working.  I got the database setup, some sample data inserted, and a little node.js server thingie up and running.  Of course, now the stupid part is actually getting the cunt to work as a particularly idiotic web API.  In JavaScript.  My current roadblock?  The professor uses code he wrote to get critical parts running and does not put that code up for anyone to see.  I literally can't fucking find it, if it exists at all.  And, its for the most important part: index.js.  Ya know, the heart, soul, and brain of the web application?

I'm starting to call the professor by his first name, because he quite clearly is not deserving of the respect entailed by the title "doctor."

A while back on this thread Askold was talking about Star Wars fans who take the empire's side.

I was reminded of that because I recently came across Steven Universe fans who genuinely think the Diamonds are good and Rose Quartz is evil for rebelling against them to save the earth.  (For anyone who doesn't watch Steven Universe the Diamonds are the rulers of an imperialistic slave empire that tried to destroy the earth in the distant past but were foiled by Rose Quartz's started a rebellion to prevent the destruction of the human race.)

I know there's a frighteningly large number of people who don't care about genocide or mass murder if it happens to someone else, but I would have assumed everyone thought genocide was bad if they'd be on the receiving end.

To be quite fair, have you looked at humanity? Have you seen the shit we pull and the utter terrible examples of sapient intelligence that we are to each other on a daily basis? If anyone deserves to get wiped out, it's humans.

You must be blissfully unaware of the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement.

When Americans say, "We can't do government-run health care, look at the VA!"

The VA combines the worst aspects of single-provider with the worst aspects of private insurer networks. How about you try single-payer?

If you just watch stuff on YouTube, you could be missing any number of things that you might well like but just don't get exposed to. If MTV played music videos from time to time, you could see one that you might never have found on your own but end up liking.
That's what playlists are for. Just pick one that more or less covers your taste in music and see what you get. While I realise your mileage may vary, I've personally discovered far more songs I like that way than I ever did on TV. Not to mention, I don't have to waste time sitting through songs I don't like.
