  1. I'll start with this viral ad which is REALLY well edited. Here's the story: MJ Hegar, an Air Force combat veteran who lives in Round Rock, Texas, is running for Congress. In a now-viral ad, she used the motif of doors to explain why she is running for office on behalf of the Democratic party. Hegar said that growing up as the daughter of a single mom in Texas, following her dream of being a pilot meant "opening, pushing, and, sometimes, kicking through every door." After years of training, Hegar became a pilot and eventually served three tours in Afghanistan with the Air Force before getting into a crash, which earned her a Purple Heart. Following the crash, she was injured and couldn't fly anymore. Hegar claims that she was "barred" from her next career choice because of her gender. She sued the Pentagon over not only the job she was barred from, but also the ban on women serving in ground combat jobs — and she won. But it wasn't easy. During the lawsuit, Hegar lobbied Congress, but she said people were hesitant to hear from her because she hadn't donated money. After her Congressman John Carter, a Tea Party Republican, refused to meet with her, Hegar decided to run for office. She's running against the guy who didn't meet with her.

    ~The 2018 midterms/special elections thread~

    Here are the top 10 finishers in the MoveOn straw poll: Someone else/DK/other: 28.8 percent Beto O’Rourke: 15.6 percent Joe Biden: 14.9 percent Bernie Sanders: 13.1 percent Kamala Harris: 10 percent Elizabeth Warren: 6.4 percent Sherrod Brown: 2.9 percent Amy Klobuchar: 2.8 percent Michael Bloomberg: 2.7 percent Cory Booker: 2.6 percent
  8. That's actually more impressive considering they didn't count behemoths like the Star Wars episodes.

    ~The 2018 midterms/special elections thread~

    Unless the NRCC Chair access secret numbers of which I'm unaware, I need to know what information he's accessing to wave away losses in Virginia, Washington, New Jersey and Alabama last year, many special election losses and huge swings to Dems in ruby red districts, 41 House losses, 7 lost governors' mansions, and 350+ state legislative seats while the unemployment rate is below 4% and most people think the economy is doing well. While correlation =/= causation, there's a whole lot more indicating Trump was an albatross this year.

    Mueller Season 3: The End Game

    Orrin Hatch in 2018: Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) on Monday dismissed federal charges implicating President Trump in crimes committed by his former lawyer, saying that he doesn't care about the argument made in a court filing by the Southern District of New York because Trump is a good president. "I don't care, all I can say is he's doing a good job as president," Hatch said in an interview with CNN, before adding that he's not bothered by the filing because he doesn't think Trump was involved in crimes. and Orrin Hatch in 2010: Orrin Hatch in 1999: "Whether President Clinton has done a ‘‘good job’’ is a matter of partisan debate. In fact, adopting a ‘‘good job’’ exception — a term that is so flexible and vague as to be meaningless as a constitutional standard — merely exasperates the partisan tensions ever present in impeachment trials." This great nation can tolerate a President who makes mistakes. But it cannot tolerate one who makes a mistake and then breaks the law to cover it up.
  12. It needs a DS3 bump, damn it. >:O But I can handle it! We can kick some serious ass.
  13. https://wccftech.com/sony-exec-ps4-pro-necessary-evolution/ On single-player games: On the Pro: I expect Sony and MS to continue with the mid-gen refresh, which has also helped keep sales very high and interest in gaming at an amazing level this far into the generation. I also don't mind multi-player whatsoever (I can imagine Horizon 2 having some epic co-op modes available for, say, unique giant robots or an arena full of enemies), but I love playing games with a strong single-player component and I that it looks to continue into the next generation.
  14. Don't think it should be a pain! I've done it plenty with people; you just have to put in a passcode and BOOM, you'll find each other.

  16. That's exactly what I did on I'd say my 2nd through 1248910481092th playthrough. They're fun when you do that. We need to replay Bloodborne at the same time to co-op the shit out of that shit. RDR2 is taking up my time atm doe.
  17. Fuck yeah, couch co-op Goldeneye, my brother weeping whenever I picked Blanka because I kicked his ass in Street Fighter, me admiring the bump-mapping in Halo 3, the weird Bloodborne co-op gestures and someone committing suicide immediately following the death of a boss, and some guy playing carnival games in Killing Floor 2 instead of helping us fight enemies... shit, great laughs man. The Halo 3 story btw: The 360 was my first next-gen console at the time, and I got it for Halo 3. I played campaign co-op with my bro and a couple friends, and because it was my first next-gen console, we were walking over a bridge over water and rocks and there was a mountain with some impressive textures or bump-mapping (I assumed bump-mapping at the time). So while the team was walking away, I just stopped and went, "Wow, that mountain looks impressive. Guys, look at the texture work at this thing." And then there was silence, but I kept admiring it, "Seriously, I don't remember this kind of work on last-gen consoles. This mountain looks REALLY good." And my brother I think was fighting someone up ahead and was like, "Dude, shut the FUCK up and get over here!" And I was like, "But this looks REALLY good," and then our fourth teammate stops beside me and goes, "He's right. This does look pretty good." The other guy was silent, and I found out later he muted his mic to laugh his ass off at the fact that we were drooling at a fake mountain. It's probably way funnier in the moment, but that was my favorite memory of the campaign. Bloodborne has given me some great multi-player memories, though. Tons and tons.
  18. Defiled Watchdog = Glorious. Unlike @Paperclyp, my highest high probably came from defeating that thing for the first time. Holy crap. Although man, I've had some pretty amazing co-op experiences with people in Bloodborne. I love the multiplayer in that thing. It's just FUN to gesture to other people and do weird shit with that. The one boss I never get help on is Defiled Amygdala. Someone dies and now she has twice the HP and you have no help. Nope, I'll do that one myself. Whenever I get summoned to help with her, I think, "Well, this ain't gonna work."
