  1. Technically, they'd be reformed with burns and other damage.
  2. It will get them off the drugs, realistically speaking. I mean they'd be dead, but they'd be off the drugs.
  3. Hawt, "Tonight at 10 employees abusing rehab patients. Car batteries, jumper cables, clamps, and o-ring gags were found at the scene. I hope those employees are switches as the tables are about to be turned!"
  4. Masochism, whips, chains, and more...LTTAfterDark...ahhhhhhh.... "Mr. Torture gives pain with his whips and his chains!"
  5. Well, until the US stops pissing off China, that drought ends, and covid scalpers die have fun with that.
  6. Depends on the OS, tasks, and SW Honestly, the 16 cores ones have a flaw to them based around game design. Which can actually cause frame rate problems in games. The 5900x doesn't run into that issue.
  7. It might not be used, but potentially a factory mishap. On the other hand, there are people who buy items, seal them to the point they look unopened, and then send them back. If it's "not opened" in the eyes of the store they'll list it as a new item at times. Forgot to mention, but that depends. If it came with a replacement head or I felt like sanitizing it then I'd probably care less. However, you're better off just replacing it.
  8. Well, most modern OSes have their fair share of bloatware. However, how useless it is depends on the user. What I hate more is when part makers, like ASUS, MSI, Dell, and several others force me to use their bloatware SW suites. Armoury Crate and Dragon Center are annoying.
  9. Scammers/attention seekers/etc are at it more during covid. Original, and current bassist, of Megadeth got false accusations against him today. An accuser claimed he was grooming a minor, but apparently the woman he was in contact with was an adult and clarified that she's as equally as pissed as he is. Plus, she apparently approved she was an adult, and didn't lie about her age. But, someone was most likely using ransom type tactics to profit off their contact because of who he is/one of the founding members of the big four of thrash metal.
  10. Well, while we're at it let's remove web browers, vpns, and more from Apple's store and platform overall.  Because they too offer access to this type of content they're crying so much about.   https://www.pcgamer.com/itchio-jokes-it-will-rename-adult-filter-to-unspeakable-content-after-apple-lawyer-criticizes-offensive-games/

  11. In gaming, yes. Even more so at the moment. However, the tensor cores are beneficial for professional work.
  12. Well, HB is just a storefront for multiple forms of DRM. If Valve tries to dictate competion like that it can be interpreted in a court of law as monopoly abuse, but again it's more of an argument for the lawyers, judge, and jury. From what I read Valve only cares if you try to give higher discounts than on Steam, and that can indeed be considered monopoly abuse. That's the fun part of the law being up to interpretation like that. But, if Valve's intent is to cut back on competition then they're going to have a bit of an issue in court most likely as intent is a huge part of it.
  13. You guys do realize the second you pick up these people will harass you more, right? They're checking for live numbers. But yes, this is typical scamming. I'm an epileptic, what vehicle?
  14. Valves had nearly 2 decades, but when it comes to Steam keys, according to the complaint, they're telling competitors what they can charge and that it can't be more competitve vs Steam's prices. Say HB or Tecmo Koei wanted to put a Nioh 2 steam key on sale at 75% off on HB, but on Steam they only want to sell it for 50% off. Valve is saying no to that, and that can be interpreted as abusing your monopoly. I wouldn't exactly call the steam community attractive as much as I would toxic, tbh. It's mostly whining, scams, cheaters galore, trolling, and thread locking. Honestly, I don't un
  15. Is supposed to be working on about 15 pages worth of research.


    Random ADHD thought, "If I pour hot water into my bathroom sink does that make it a heatsink?"


    The research is on 5G, system architectures, and a topic related to Korea.
