Similar to how other dictatorships will ban it. I (memory is cloudy on this) think they would ban the IP, the DNS would be modified, killing the functionality of the app in the US. App stores would be forced to remove it or face fines/incarceration. They could also demand that the owner of the app ban US IPs from the Read more

Force remove from app stores and force the company to make the app access inoperable from US IP addresses. Same way other countries ban other apps. It’s not that difficult.

Or you could just slow the fuck down when approaching an intersection with obviously-poor visibility. Have you driven through farm country? It’s mostly just endless straight roads with occasional intersections. Just use the left pedal every once in a while, jeez. Read more

Unfortunately, that is millions of acres of farmland that would be unproductive.  Farmers (and the lobby) will fight tooth and nail about tilling soil, it’d be virtually impossible to get something like this past a state house in any agricultural state.  And, to be honest, most of these roads see, maybe, dozens of Read more

It is amazing, but not all that surprising when you think about it. In a sport where margins are hundredths of seconds, any wasted motion at all is going to cost you. I remember a video of a cheetah with a GoPro on it’s head and even at 60mph the camera (and therefore his head) hardly wobbled.

Seriously impressive. The way pro swimmers movements are so efficient astounds me. Shes going at a very relaxed pace and would swim circles around my best flailing attempts.

Because the shuttle was a really good idea, after all - expensive, extremely hard to maintain, marginal safety rating, no way of really aborting a failed launch, complex... Yeah, that’s the idea. Gliders have problems. Read more

The thing is, if the only black character in the show were a criminal, that would be playing into stereotypes. But Batwoman already has two other black regulars, one of whom works for Wayne Industries security and the other of whom is a respected member of the Crows security organization. And the Arrowverse as a whole Read more

Ubisoft claimed AC Unity would load so quickly that loading screens weren’t necessary. That only wound up being true if you never used fast travel.

I find it strange that people still have a hard time understanding that it’s okay for people to have different opinions on things. It’s great that you liked the game. Not everyone has to.

I didn’t realize this, but apparently battery usage snobs exist now.

Yeah, but if you by ONE HUNDRED games at $9.99, you save a dollar, so who’s the smarty-pants now?!

Sneaker foam actually ages even when not worn, so it’s probably better to only buy when you have a role for them.

It was a very valid question. If you knew anything about AAA development you’d know the changes made in the last months of dev are usually downgrades in quality to optimize performance. There is no way they will rework all the textures and redo geometry on such a big scale. Read more

If you’ve ever seen showcased gameplay you know that companies usually, juice up the demos. Imagine it being 2020, not seeing even a snippet of gameplay for 5 years and then witnessing that thing fly by on rails at 4:58 in that video. I honestly can’t believe they willing showed this demo.

I know it’s not directed at me but that was a pretty erratic response to a valid question.

It is a perfectly reasonable question, and the answer is not obvious to someone without some background in chemistry. The way masks work, the way the virus is carried, etc... all good questions.

GIMP is a PhotoShop alternative in the same way that you with an ice cream scoop is an alternative to having the surgeon remove your appendix. You might get the same result but one is going to be a damn site more painful...
