Exactly, you can even make an argument that people in both parties don't really care much at the end of the day about who uses what bathroom as those bathroom bills didn't end up going all that well for Republicans either.........but his approach was about as tone deaf and out of touch as you can get.

 

.......which was on full display last night as ole Bloomy got annihilated at the debate, it was quite cathartic.

Looks like LMH/Hypercar is dead before it even gets off the ground (again)

 

The ACO may just have to bite the bullet and admit that they're going to be a GT race for awhile.

Dogs don't like having their jaws grabbed.  They always tried to shake off the hand.  or failing that, push it off with their paws.

 

So sadism towards animals...always a bad sign.

Or just a real lack of experience with pets, but... not a good sign.

I did it because it annoyed my dogs.  I'm pretty sure that makes me a horrible person.  I'm probably just a few smalls steps from vivisecting squirrels in the forest for funsies.

Offs Mermaid.

 

edit: obviously you had a relationship with your dogs and doing something annoy/tease them is a bit different from a random stranger doing it to a dog.

So, you need to get the Humor Lookout System upgrade?

I think I'm calling this the "bumper fish" for now on, because it looks like a chromed bumper that turned into a fish.

Actually, as far as I can tell Gen Urobuchi isn't involved at all in either the story or the production of Magia Record.

...Huh. Then I guess the Curse of the Magical Girls runs deeper in the darkness that is the Chasm of Eternal Peril.


Alrighty, looked through the WoT tech tree to see if there were any T6+es I wanted to nab before they got poofed, and I noticed a wee something. Notably, wheeled vehicles. Didn't WG have a longstanding prohibition on wheeled vehicles?

You mean like their longstanding decision to not have submarines in WoWS? Yeah, they tossed that out.

Oooooh... Fun!


I decided to try my Bias Nation ship: T6 Gnevny. HOLY MOTHER****ING BALLS OF GREAT GODDESS ATOM'S HOLY F**KING HELLFIRE. Now, this IS against bots, but I've taken that thing HEAD TO HEAD against T8 CLs and CAs, and it's come out on top. Those are the things that are supposed to EAT DDs for all meals of the day. Bias Nation, indeed.

 

And now, speaking of Balance (trademark)...

Here's a video of Wargaming Balance Dept. making a "fix", notably to IFHE/Totally Historic Fires on Steel Ships and the Tanks HE Nerf. Sound on for Greater Historical Accuracy.

Evidently the Kremlin wants a Trump-Sanders matchup in November.

Oh, interesting thing about Bias Nation DDs... they've actually been superseded by French DDs, which do the same gunboating thing only better. Even the Japanese gunboat DDs are doing better at most tiers.

 

That's PvP stats though.

I'm gonna guess that's due to torpedo kiting. Bias Nation DDs have VERY short-ranged torps in most cases, for balance reasons (have to balance out the nasty guns somehow). I can't really see how the IJN DDs would be doing better otherwise, as they usually have fewer guns, slower reload, and a slower traverse to boot. Even then, torp attacks from long range are usually easy to dodge, soooo...? At least they aren't US DDs with the softball shell arcs that are such a pain to aim.

EDIT: Div'ed up synchronized/mass torp kiting. That would do it. So many fish in the water at once, launched from beyond spotting range, one or two pretty much HAVE to hit something.
