New Age of Empires looks dope.

The day commemorates the liberation of enslaved people in Galveston, Texas in 1865, following the Civil War and President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation two years prior.

I mean, technically correct, but it wasn't really about Galveston. It's about how that was when the last of people heard the news. It represents how long it takes for actual rights and freedoms to be even told to people. I think it represents all yhag is wrong with the struggles of obtaining AND ENJOYING rights and freedoms. I feel like their summary was a bit too brief and simplifying.

If you talk to many american christians, then the answer is whatever they personally learned or believe. You must believe the same as them and their arbitrary translation of the Bible. All other possibilities are blasphemous and a personal attack on them.

For us, the suburbs are cheaper than the cities. We basically have no choice. I have to work in the city but can't afford to live there with a family. Mainly the rent/mortgage prices, and groceries. It's all cheaper when I'm willing to drive 30-60 minutes outside of the city.

I've had mine for years and I've never noticed either the smell or the fan noise. I don't get what people are going on about.

It's called PC gaming.

I'm pretty sure soldier children is ALSO the problem. Or do you believe those children had full consent in that like an adult?

West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin called today’s vote to oust McCarthy a “sad day for our country” that sends a negative message to the rest of the world about American democracy.

Every so often, girls need to release evil demons within them or else they'll be consumed by hellfire. Everybody knows this.

RAPE! She helped him RAPE!

GET THE FUCKING HEADLINES CORRECT.

A 12 year old did not "get pregnant by grown man." She was FUCKING RAPED!

Holy shit, it implies the issue here was the getting pregnant. There's a little something that occurred before that and it was called RAPE!

So they pay those taxes with the gains from the sale? What's the fucking problem?

But unless this is a 2nd home, I don't think they'll pay anything unless it's over some high amount.

But while he was alive, Lee stressed his belief that the country should move past the war. He swore allegiance to the Union and publicly decried southern separatism, whether militant or symbolic. “It's often forgotten that Lee himself, after the Civil War, opposed monuments, specifically Confederate war monuments.”

They are too stupid to actually review your work. No, they need to SEE you doing your work.

Tipping was always stupid from day 1. I've spent most of my life being told I'm a moron for being against tipping culture and instead wanting fair wages and clear prices. Suddenly in recent years people realize how stupid tipping is simply cause it went to its logical extreme. People are morons.

If a family member gets banned for cheating while playing your copy of a game, you (the game owner) will also be banned in that game.

This is going to be hilarious. Can't wait to see the whining online.

Asking for or even suggesting tips of any kind anywhere. Also gratuities, service fees, and any other kind of made up fee. Show a price, end of story.

Also outlaw not including taxes. Show full complete prices.

Ah well, soldiers haven't fought for their country for decades. Instead they've been fighting for the interest of industrialized military, and the whims of politicians.

The least productive Congress since the Great Depression? The same Congress who couldn't pass a budget for the government until 6 months into the very fiscal year it's for? That Congress? Priorities.

The most important part of becoming a cop is apparently lacking empathy.

Long-running jokes about tiny hands.

Most of my career is showing how we could solve problems, being told not to because the morons above me don't comprehend abstract, being thrown under the bus, finding ways to do what is needed anyways, and only after the fact, after proof is shown that it was the correct thing to do, getting some meager acknowledgement that perhaps I was right amd know what I'm doing.

But it still never causes these idiots to actually trust me the next time. It doesn't seem to matter who is above me. If they are even slightly older than me, they don't ever trust people like me.

I see this same thing happen to a lot of my peers my age and younger as well. The high quality individuals suffer because the world is full of idiotic managers.

Every single thing I use gets changed, ruined, shut down, canceled, moved, merged. It never ends.

Wound up giving up and using Google podcast BECAUSE other ones I used kept getting shut down.

Why are positions like Sheriff and Coroner elected? Shouldn't they be appointed/hired based on ACTUAL FUCKING QUALIFICATIONS and experience?

Sony's own PS Remote Play app has always been garbage. Even on PC, on phones, on anything. I never had faith they'd improve it for Portal. Sony has only disappointed me nonstop since 2011. Steam has only continued to win me over time and time again.

There's a town hall video with John McCain around 2008 where an elderly woman tries to suggest to him she's worried about Obama because he's not white. John McCain shot her down and defended Obama and stressed we should only focus on the political differences of opinion, and his own supporters booed him. This all had been coming for so long.

Edit: I was corrected, she did not exactly state what her problem was with Obama, but it's clear that it was bigotry.

So much of the internet is enshittifying abuse of this moronic term enshittify.

It's fucking free. Youtube had ads before FREE videos forever ago. This isn't new. This isn't enshittifying. What an idiotic post.

You could grab a brush and put a little make-up. Perhaps hide the scars to fade away the shake-up. But then why'd you leave the keys upon the table? Ah, here you go create another fable.

Why do you want a discreet way to wake up? You wanted to.

His hospital now: "Well would you look at that. Your treatment is suddenly $200 million. Man, that sucks. I'm sorry."

So many of these comments are breaking down into arguments of basic consent for pics, and knowing how so many people are, I sure wonder how many of those same people post pics of their kids on social media constantly and don't see the inconsistency.
