    "hugely exaggerated science" isn't a thing. As the virus progressed and virologists and other doctors learned about transmission paths and other things, recommended steps have changed slightly. There are people still not doing the most basic of things like wearing masks when necessary and social distancing, even though those are well-established protocols at this point. I poo-poo'd some of it in the beginning, but I can admit I was wrong in my view many months back.
     
    Yes, people are suffering badly, I have friends that are in very bad shape mentally because they've gone hard in terms of cleaning things and distancing themselves from the world. I've seen/communicated in person with basically three people in the last 6 months, three, and I'd be lying to say it wasn't wearing on me just floating between my two-person office and my household day in and day out. But in the end it's worth the effort if it keeps me, my family, and my friends as safe as possible.
     
    I'm a rootin-tootin Texan, a believer in individual liberty and rights, but I will be the first person to tell anyone that it's worth bending a bit and staying safe right now, even if it feels like an infringement to your liberties. Everyone can kick back and grumble about it later on, right now we have to make it through this.

    Downplaying the situation is just gonna make things worse. If you need an example of that, look no further than the United States. We're the only country still in the first wave!

    Perhaps I shouldn't have included Outemu as a "higher quality" switch maker than Cherry x3
     
    That being said, Cherry ain't much better.

    I did look up the board, and it did identify the switches as being made by Outemu. A common Cherry alternative in cheap boards.
     
    tbh I'd recommend Hexgears more, especially now that the Impulse board I reviewed last year and have since sent to my boyfriend has hotswap.

    Excuse me, Gateron, Outemu and Kailh are not "knock off" switches... especially when they're higher quality than Cherry's own offerings.
     
    In this case, Outemu is fairly standard in cheaper boards. They aren't amazing especially compared to Kailh and Gateron offerings, but they're still better than Cherry MX lol

    This virus is real.  All the damage it's causing... is real.  It's not being overblown.  It's people like you that this shit keeps getting prolonged.  People need to stop caring only about themselves and sticking their heads in the sand because they're inconvenienced by this shit.  It sucks.  But if we all worked together way earlier, like back in March, and stayed working together, we wouldn't be in this mess now.  

    I've lost people to this virus, and people like you are why its only getting worse, because, "the gubment lying."

    Nowak got a reaction from FakeNSA in Motorola launches the second-gen Motorola Razr.   
    Try telling that to Michael Fisher. I'm pretty sure the only reason why he wants it in his pocket over the Galaxy Z Flip is because of nostalgia for the original Razr.

    That’s because:
    1) public health in the US is garbage
    2) people don’t listen and don’t social distance / wear masks
    3) incompetence in lockdown measures 
     
    people like to pass blame, especially at the federal level, but you can’t have all these riots, people not isolating, activism in the streets, and then wonder why the measures that people don’t follow aren’t working.
     
    The only thing I would advise in the US is for the vulnerable, e.g diabetic, obese, to isolate and low-risk people to go to work as normal and risk it, and when a vaccine comes out, to take it.

    I'll wait for AMD's response before judging if AMD's gonna get "decimated" or whatever. Can't say I'm too pleased with that pricing structure.

    The RX 5000 series was comparable in performance to the RTX 20 series, but they didn't definitively beat them (just performed exactly like how AMD said they would) and ofc the driver issues for the first few months so people declared them "dead on arrival."

    I don't know why people get mad when AMD cards perform exactly as they say they do. If AMD says that RDNA 2 will perform as good as, I dunno, the RTX 3070, and it performs as good as the 3070, then where's the reason to get mad?

    Here in America, the 5700 XT is $100 cheaper than the 2070 Super, and I would say about the same as the standard 2070 but that's being scalped. Considering the 2070s is $100 more for... 5% better performance, is it really better to buy Nvidia than AMD? As for the 2060 vs. 5600 XT, they're about on par.
     
    Also, for the record, that $500 starting point is more than what I paid for my 1070 by (a nice) $69.
