God's Hubris: Made a bet in my Fantasy Football league with the 344 Romney landslide guy from yesterday. If Obama wins, he gives me Tom Brady, if Romney wins, I give him AJ Green.


That's beautiful. Not only is his guy going to lose, he gets to watch his fantasy team stink for the rest of the season. Well played, old chap.

inner ted: Fark Griswald: FinFangFark: Tor_Eckman: In case anyone cares, Halo 4 is quite good so far.

I hate you...I have it sitting at my gaming desk at home...ready to go.

I haven't played Halo since Halo 2

I've never played Mass Effect.

Do you recommend Halo 4 or Mass Effect Trilogy?

Discuss

i just played Mass Effect for the first time- it's freaking great - though the main plot line is kinda short - i completed it & didn't realize the game just ended (was hoping to be able to still bump around and do misc. tasks - but no... unless i'm missing something)

will probably play through again & from what i understand, you get to progress the same character into Mass Effect 2 & 3 - which is super cool.

halo is halo - awesome, but getting pwned by 10 year olds with squeaky voices and a list of curse words longer than you can imagine can get old.

/on topic - haven't voted yet
//booga booga booga


Yes I used to LOVE Halo but I had to give it up when I got a PS3 instead of a 360 some 5 or 6 years ago. Well I recently got a 360 anyway and played the Mass Effect 3 demo and loved it. I still love Halo but being able to play through the whole Mass Effect story right away just seems super sexy.

qorkfiend: shower_in_my_socks: dletter: Anyone think that if there was good "exit polling" for the GOP that Drudge would have leaked it out by now?


I believe the networks have agreed to sit on the exit polling numbers until 5pm ET, due to accuracy concerns since they farked it up in 2004 and had people thinking Kerry was going to win. Any exit poll figures you hear before then should be taken with a big grain of salt.

If the networks agreed to sit on them, Drudge would definitely be leaking them.


I don't think all states have exit polls this time, actually...

Listening to the TV news, the words and phrases I am hearing to describe the candidates' actions are exactly the ones I hear during football recruiting season. And, apparently, Gary Johnson is as respected as New Mexico State University.

In case anyone wants to check out an excellent political documentary before the results roll in -

s3.amazonaws.com

R.J. Cutler's followup to The War Room. Criminally underseen, about the 1994 Senate race in Virginia between Oliver North and Chuck Robb. Lot of early signposts in there as to how politics got so farked up by 2012.

I had to go out of the country.... and chose BBC and Reuters. Sad, really.


The same is true for other countries as well. The BBC does NOT provide the same type of good, unbiased news when it involves British elections, whereas US sources usually do (when they can be bothered). Something about not seeing the forest for the trees

That cannot possibly have actually happened.

Tell me that's some kind of elaborate Photoshop, please.

Yes, it actually happened, back in June, 2011, hence my desire to relentlessly mock Gary Johnson supporters. Ditto Ron Paul, who took part in a similar farce on Stossel's show.

(As a former Obama voter, may I direct my fellow disillusioned Democrats toward Ross Anderson of the Justice party...)


Been there, done that.
3 elections for Nader.
Go ahead and laugh, but I always vote my conscience.
Last time? Obama.
McCain? Lord no. Palin? Girlfriend, go back to what you do best- looking purty.

Now? Romney? Sheesh.
Ryan? Fark that legitimate rape bullschnitt.

Obama has done some good stuff.

Sam Wang calculates a 50-50 likelihood that Florida falls withing the .5% voting margin to trigger automatic recount. Let's hope New Hampshire/Virginia/Iowa/Wisconsin/Ohio/Nevada make Florida recount theatrics irrelevant.

Most everyone in line with me for Early voting had their Republican party sample ballot guide in hand ready to go. If Obama wins Florida I'll be impressed. I'm still kinda surprised how many people I know siding with Romney in Florida I would've thought were clear Democrats. :P And then there's the few I know that when Obama wins I'll start seeing facebook posts about the true patriots rising up for another civil war.. Haven't defriended them because it's mildly entertaining :P

At least I know of 2 Obama votes in Florida with my wife and I =D

They aren't kicking anyone out. They are there claiming to "keep the piece" but they've been known in the past to go to intimidate. Since that story came out, a former SEAL was doing a round on radio stations saying former vets would be going to the same polling stations and video taping their Panthers, to see if they are out there to intimidate voters.

That's what I've read on it today.

Probably, but a squeaker that will only decide the magnitude of the Obama win. Rmoney was supposed to walk in FL, so if it's really close there, it bodes well for other battleground states for Obama.

Basically, it shows the breakdown of every VA county and what % of the vote Obama would need in each one in order to take the state. Obviously its an estimate, but you can compare the VA counties as they come in with this spreadsheet to see whether Obama is on target to take the state.

Small ballot this year. One cool KY Constitutional amendment to vote on. Trying to make it a right that hunting and fishing be used for conservation and wildlife management. I dig that even though I don't hunt & haven't fished in years.


Yeah, I was of two minds on that one. Strongly support the basic intent, not 100% on board with the idea of amending the bloody state constitution for it. Gave in and voted yes.

I voted no just because it's stupid. The part about hunting and fishing being "our preferred form of wildlife control" or something to that effect made it sound like we won't have educated people controlling animal populations, which seemed stupid.

/supports hunting and fishing


Link

The exact wording
"Are you in favor of amending the Kentucky constitution to state that the citizens of Kentucky have the personal right to hunt, fish, and harvest wildlife, subject to laws and regulations that promote conservation and preserve the future of hunting and fishing, and to state that public hunting and fishing shall be a preferred means of managing and controlling wildlife?"

Mass Effect isn't really short per se... and it's very obvious you've reached the end when you have. If there wasn't any "closure" involving the Council and the Citadel, you might have missed something.


***spoiler of old ass game***

i'm pretty sure i reached the end - the credits rolled

& then it said i unlocked levels 51-80 (i think) & something like "hardcore" difficulty

does that mean i can continue or do i have to start over with a new character?
