  • Final Fantasy 15 director on nude mods: if they go 'too far' they may affect the future...

    We weren't too surprised when we learned that Final Fantasy 15 is coming to PC, but the news that came after was definitely unexpected: it will be moddable and have Steam Workshop support. I don't typically expect big, console-focused games to even address the question of moddability, never mind endorse modding. Recently, game director Hajime Tabata did express some hesitation, though. While Final Fantasy 15 modding won't be restricted, nude mods, or presumably anything deemed salacious, are a worry of the developers. Tabata said he doesn't think such mods are "a good thing," but doesn't want to restrict the modding...
  • Almost 40 per cent of all young adults are living with their parents hitting a 75-year high[tr]

    For the last 10 years, the number of millennials who have failed to move out of their parents or grandparents homes has climbed steadily, according to new data. Nearly 40 per cent of young adults are either living with their parents or other relatives, which is the highest point in over seven decades, new data from real estate analytics company Trulia states. This is the highest point in 75 years where young adults have just stayed at home with no plans on moving out. The only other time in American history where the share has been higher was back in...

    She and a friend would run sessions teaching room painting, chicken roasting, savings accounts, engine maintenance. I rolled my eyes (I’d prefer “engaged thoughtfully”), but lo, it’s happened. In Portland, a teacher and psychotherapist have opened The Adulting School. Adulting. It was nominated as the word of the year by the American Dialect Society, a word coined by a generation that has been shielded from the worst of growing up by living in their parents’ homes, and shut out of the best of it by a society that forces them to stay there. Reminiscent of Alan Partridge’s seminal boast that...

    Can't help but compare Trumps supporters as The Zerg Some may know what it means, but it's an online gaming term that I think originated with Starcraft and it's racial opponent the zerglings. I think Cruz is going for broke in Iowa and South Carolina. For Iowa he has certainly put in the time, set up a good running game and is polling ahead of Trump. I think Trumps just going to Zerg him and overwhelm the caucuses with a surprising number of supporters. God bless them both.
  • Coming millennial bubble could spell trouble

    The Washington Times ^ | March 16, 2015 | Steve Deace
    An older generation complaining that an emerging one will be the death of civilization as we know it is a cliche and constant as the North Star. However, based on some rather troubling data regarding today’s millennials, it could turn out to be true this time. In his first inaugural address as governor of California 47 years ago, Ronald Reagan warned us that “freedom is a fragile thing, and is never more than one generation away from extinction.” He also reminded us that freedom “is not ours by inheritance but must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation,...
  • More millennials missing out on recovery, living with parents

    A Congressional report released Tuesday found that millennials are not feeling the impacts of the economic recovery. The Joint Economic Committee's report added to what's become a long list of economic data showing that millennials are delaying major life decisions such as buying a home and getting married. In 2003, nearly 40 percent of Americans between the ages of 25 and 34 headed a household. In 2013, the rate declined to 37.2 percent. Meanwhile, the percentage of millennials living with their parents has increased from 11 percent before the recession to 14 percent,
  • Karl Rove Has to Be Kidding (Southern Avenger) (GOP is using and abusing conservatives)

    Why in the hell is Karl Rove on my TV? Why is Karl Rove on my radio? Why is Karl Rove on anywhere? Unless he’s on trial or being interrogated, I can’t imagine of what possible use this George W. Bush relic could be to conservatives and yet he’s everywhere, hocking his book “Courage and Consequence: My Life as a Conservative in the Fight,” a title as credibly right-wing as Stephen Colbert and as historically accurate as the movie “Titanic.” Craig Shirley and former Reagan official Donald Devine summed up Rove’s duplicity well in this week’s Washington Post: “From William...

You'd think that they could finally understand that murdering a murderer is pretty much a given in the moral play. When will these people grow up already? You murder, you get murdered, period. Pretty simple.
