  1. Just to pump the brakes on Gohmert's claim of "I have a right to free speech!" victimhood: Arizona congressman Raul Grijalva tested positive for covid after chairing a hearing that Gohmert attended. “While I cannot blame anyone directly for this, this week has shown that there are some Members of Congress who fail to take this crisis seriously,” Grijalva said.
  2. Horizon: Zero Dawn was an excellent game that both of you would enjoy. My son was 8-9 when he played it, and we restrict him to T-rated games, mainly. A couple other suggestions are Monster Hunter: World and Final Fantasy VII Remake. My son was into both of those recently (just turned 11). Horizon was probably the best, though, and it also has DLC that was pretty good too (might be included with the game by now).
  3. It's Trayvon Martin, and he was shot by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, not the police.
  4. What does this even mean? That nothing can be deemed offensive unless there's an official arbiter? Because it seems to me that plenty of people deemed "Redskins" to be offensive for a long time, and it wasn't until corporate sponsors threatened the team's bottom line that a change was even considered. So maybe the answer to your question is "whoever threatens the most loss of money gets to decide what is offensive."
  5. I really do marvel at the argument that changing an obviously racist sports team name might force us, as a society, to consider whether other monikers could be considered offensive, as if an attempt to view a particular position from someone else's perspective is somehow an unacceptable imposition. "I don't view Redskins as offensive, so it must not be offensive," versus, "I don't view Redskins as offensive, but I'm open to listening to how others might." To the "where does it stop?" crowd: Where does what stop? What is wrong with examining a mascot or product name or historical statue and evaluating how someone else might feel about that? I can understand if a lot of folks don't see anything wrong with the Braves or Eskimo Pie or a Columbus statue. It's worth a conversation, though. To the folks upset over these companies changing the names: What harm has it caused you?
  6. Really enjoying Last of Us 2, but I'm a huge baby when it comes to jump scares in games. The levels "The Descent" and "Ground Zero" might have given me ulcers. "Ground Zero" especially just filled me with dread. I never use game guides unless I'm totally stumped or there's a boss I can't beat, but I'm a middle-aged man who is trying to avoid cardiac arrest, so I pulled up the walkthrough on the "Ground Zero" level to avoid any surprises.
  7. Tucker Carlson yesterday: "Many schools that do plan to reopen will do so under a series of restrictions that have no basis of any kind in science. It's kind of a bizarre health theater. Students will be kept six feet apart, everyone will have to wear a mask, class sizes will be limited." Tucker Carlson on his March 30 show: "Of course, masks work. Everyone knows that. Dozens of research papers have proved it. In South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, the rest of Asia -- where coronavirus has been kept under control -- masks were key." https://twitter.com/bad_takes/status/1280662317139742722?ref_src=twsrc^tfw|twcamp^tweetembed|twterm^1280662317139742722|twgr^&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.newsweek.com%2Ftucker-carlson-contradicts-himself-over-mask-stance-1516210 I'm thinking if anyone is an expert on bizarre theater, it's Tucker Carlson. Unfortunately, those who recognize it as such aren't his target audience.
  8. It must be tiring to constantly manufacture scenarios that portray Trump as the victim. There's plenty of evidence that Mary Trump loathes her uncle.
  9. "The president should show proper leadership by, at the very least, wearing a mask." "You're politicizing this crisis!"
  10. Interesting side note: Christians were offended by the inclusion of "devil" in the team's name.
  11. Oh no! How would fans ever recover from a name change?
  12. Hopefully this isn't spoiler-y. In The Last of Us 2, there are flashbacks. I was like, "Phew! I can't die in a flashback because then future Ellie wouldn't exist and the game would collapse on itself, forming a singularity." Apparently I'm wrong! Now there's a black hole in our playroom.
  13. Yeah, I'm probably nearing the halfway point. Really enjoying it, but, man, it really gets my adrenaline up. I prefer stealth and sneaking around versus guns blazing, and I pretty much assume there's infected behind every closed door, so I'm constantly crouching and going slow and waiting for something to jump out at me. It's very stressful. I simultaneous want to play forever but also want it to be over with. I'm middle-aged and have almost no recollection of playing the first Last of Us, so maybe the sequel is the same, but I love the save system. When you're taking out enemies, it basically autosaves every couple minutes, which means I can experiment with different strategies and, if one doesn't work, I can reload and go back 1 minute and try something else. The best is when you're in an area with human enemies and infected, and you throw a bottle or brick just right so that the infected go after the humans and they take each other out. So satisfying.
  14. This describes the entire Trump presidency.
