Where do you fall on the gay spectrum?

answer the question

Shadow of Mordor HD pack

08 October 2014 - 03:33 PM

So I'm finally buying this game, and I notice there's an HD pack (on top of the 34gb download! what is this, my Xbox One!?!? :epilepsy: )

Let's say, for instance, I have a rig with an i5-3570k @ 3.4 ghz (I could overclock if I have to, I just haven't bothered yet), 8gb of RAM and a GTX 770 with 4gb of memory. Would downloading the HD pack slow the game down too much? Would there be a downside at all? Could I download it and then, like, not use it if the game slows down too much?

HTPC case that can fit a BF graphics card?

BF meaning "big fucking" card

I'm nervous about buying a HTPC case because of size limitations on graphics cards. Right now I'm just using a regular ATX tower for my HTPC, but the last thing I haven't built yet is the mobo/cpu/ram combo (using an old set from an old computer, and it sucks), and I'm still deciding whether to just stick with a regular ATX tower or build a mini ITX or something

Does anyone use a HTPC case with a big fucking video card? Are there heat problems and such?

I don't plan on doing any overclocking with the HTPC, so I don't plan on needing to fit in a liquid cooling system, or any other aftermarket coolers for that matter.

What's the problem with GMOs?

27 September 2014 - 05:25 PM

I've never really thought much about it, but the other night one of my friends made an off the cuff remark about stopping GMOs in our food being super important.

I'm no scholar in the subject, and I didn't say anything back to her at the time because it seems to be one of those topics that gets people irrationally angry, but is there any argument against GMOs that isn't some variation of "its not natural, therefore it must be bad?" the closest I could think of is that like, maybe a few decades from now certain health effects might show up that we didn't foresee. But that's the case with any new food/drug, that doesn't mean we should start holding decades-long trials for everything that hits the market.

I don't know. Even organic farmers have been pumping their crops full of hormones and shit for decades to make them bigger and shinier. Those are probably worse for you than any genetic alteration. Why doesn't anyone care about that?

Octoberfest (or "oktoberfest" if you want to be a dick about it)

@Ominous is trying a new beer every day during the month of October. I am joining him in this endeavor. And I'm starting early, fuck it. It's only 5 days, and it means 36 new beers instead of 31.



Today: Rogue's Roguenbier Rye Ale

Reviews of the beer so far are that it's just kind of okay. I've come to expect this from Rogue beers. Most of them are good enough, but they're overpriced as hell, and if they ever do do anything interesting, they usually go way overboard (see their Voodoo Bacon Maple Ale or their Soba Wheat). However, I couldn't pass up the opportunity for a good rye beer, so here it goes.
