#6795: It's hard to see a downside to this

Ace's pithy headline suffices: "Leftwingers Getting Their Dicktubes Snipped Because of Climate Worries".

Where do I send the "thank you" note? "Dear dumbass: thank you for taking yourself out of the gene pool. Sincerely, Posterity"

"New York Times examining editor's 'poor judgment' on social media." I quoted someone else the other day:
The hard left do not have a filter, they say the first despicable thing that comes into their head. Ask anyone who has been around them, when they are talking in a group of people the hard leftie just assumes that everyone else thinks like they do, and say the most vile shit about Christians, the right, Republicans, and they don't even blink when they say it.
Because he makes that assumption, said editor thought he was speaking into a leftist echo chamber.

Joe Biden: "Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as... white kids"

Way to go.

This is satire. Synthesizing pseudoephedrine from methamphetamine.

...because you need a government-issued photo ID to buy an over-the-counter decongestant, but not to vote.

This is going a mite far. I mean, it's nice workmanship and all, but...no.

At work, I've gotten 1,900 emails since the beginning of August which ended up going right into the trash bin. For some reason I'm on the distribution list for a client I don't take, and every time that client (which has a dedicated team) generates a ticket, I get an email telling me a ticket has been generated.

Then they get mad if you miss an email. But we're not allowed to use filters. *whimper*

So, Blizzard did a stress test of the new Classic WoW servers yesterday. It was great fun! The only thing was, as the evening wore on, there started to be problems with taking and turning in quests--but even so it was nice.

I turned all the graphics sliders up to their maximum extent, since the client uses different settings from the present-day WoW, and with the graphics at their highest settings I was getting 120-150 FPS out of the thing. Simpler times, simpler graphics. Heh.

Anyway I'm led to understand that Vanilla WoW goes live on 8/26, so that's when I'll play it; but it sure was fun to take part in the stress test. I amused Mrs. Fungus considerably by having my dwarven priest work on his "unarmed" skill by punching wolves and boars. Heh.

I did this in perhaps 1997 or 1998. It was satire back then. Now, I'm not so sure.

Anyway, at least it's Friday! It's Friday, and tomorrow is Saturday, and here's hoping we all can have a nice relaxing weekend.
