    I Fully Support Fucking With Scalpers

    With the launch of the RTX 3080 and PS5 pre-orders going live today, I just wanted to say that until castration of scalpers and the people who enable that behavior becomes legal, I fully support disappointed honest customers fucking with them as much as humanly possible.

    Dear Nintendo

    From the bottom of my heart...

    Fuck you.

    All three titles in Super Mario 3D All Stars are emulated.

    No 1080p.
    No widescreen.
    No 60 FPS.

    And you suits want $60 for this?

    I don't get it. Sometimes you folks are the most innovative developers.

    Then times like this, you're the most backwards pieces of shit in the entire industry.

    What the hell is Nintendo's game, here?

    So Super Mario 3D All Stars was announced recently, slotted for release this Friday, along with Super Mario 35, on October 1st, which is what looks like a fascinating Tetris-99-esque twist on the legendary platformer.

    But the announcement came with a puzzling footnote; these games would be available, both physically and digitally, only until March 31st, 2021.

    I'm Getting Back To Writing, I Swear


    Got the Ravenous last Monday, and finally completed the lengthy project that allowed me to craft the Regulus revolver.

    For the second time since launch, I have every exotic item in the game.

    Here's hoping they have some good news about the upcoming Skyscraper mode, because I'm approaching burnout.

    Whew, maybe it's finally time for a break.

    I've completed Iron Horse twice in the past week.

I don't think it's fair to say I've started social distancing. · 4:29pm March 16th

Because, honestly, I've been doing it my entire adult life. Work. Home. Work. Home. Work. Home. That's been my routine for the past four days.

One thing we did do frequently is eat out, and that's going to stop, at least for the next two weeks, maybe longer as we keep an eye on things. Some are saying that we're on track to be Italy in the next couple weeks.

My point is, if you have to work, fine. Work. Wash your hands and keep yourself fed. But if you're still doing things like restaurants and bars and planning your spring break vacation, I do find that a bit irresponsible. I have unfortunately seen things like that on my social media, and I've either been blocking people or calling them out.

I'd say I'm more concerned than worried. I remember when Mix messaged me early last month from the other side of the world, saying how he was getting worried at what was going on in his city. I touched base with him yesterday morning, and thankfully, things have calmed down a bit over there, and I have to believe things will calm down here too. Though I do hope that panic buyers, hoarders, and profiteers get robbed, have their pallets of toilet paper break down before they can use it, and other just desserts. They are truly scum.

So this will most likely pass. Just stay safe.

I think everyone is blowing this way out of proportion. It’s a flu. Unless you’re old and/or have weak immune systems, there’s nothing to worry about. Go about your day. Don’t live in fear just because CNN tells you to. I was a kid when the swine flu was supposed to end the world, and then I was a teen when Ebola was going to destroy the fabric of society. Nothing ever came of it. Kung Flu will be no different.

I'd say don't live in fear, but don't ignore fear either. It's there for a reason.

5221519
But what is there for me to fear? I’m young, I’m healthy. So is the majority of my family. If I get it, I get the sniffles for a couple days or weeks, so what?

5221522
My state just closed all dine-in restaurants, bars, and nightclubs.

I'll be on the side of treating this seriously, regardless of age.

I basically agree with everyone on this. Problem is, I've got a weakened immune system, so I'm one of the people that has to hole themselves up.

When I get to a high-up position at work, I'm going to want to see how many people have birthdays between December 2020 and January 2021. There will be like, two weeks of office celebration. May as well make it a holiday week. :rainbowlaugh:

One measure I've heard is that we'll have the same patterns as Italy, just that our timetable is 10 days lagging behind.

Though I do hope that panic buyers, hoarders, and profiteers get robbed, have their pallets of toilet paper break down before they can use it, and other just desserts. They are truly scum.

I don't think the people who stockpiled should be held in the same regards as the people who cleared full shelves just to scalp online. Right now I have a 'stock pile' that's actually smaller than it's been previously, when I've bought a 24-pack.

but if 'you' get, you'll likely not know for two weeks because of the incubation period, allowing you to spread it around. And sooner or later, that infection rate is going to cause deaths.

First of all, no, it's not a flu. They are two different viruses. Second, the problem isn't any of us getting sick, per se. The majority of us are probably young and healthy enough to shrug off the virus. The problem is who you might pass it on to and how many you might pass it on to. Me, for instance? I'd be perfectly fine, but I'm more worried about passing it on to my parents, both of whom are in their 60s with cardiovascular issues, one's a former light smoker, and the other is a drinker and asthmatic. I even have a coworker who's worried for her one-year-old daughter (though from what little everyone knows about it, covid doesn't seem to hit children nearly as hard).

Hell, last week I had a platelet donation scheduled, and I spent days fretting over that. Do I dare set foot in Manhattan at a time like this? What if I already have the virus and don't know it, either because I'm asymptomatic or still in the incubation period? Is there any risk of infecting the recipient, since coronaviruses are generally respiratory and gastrointestinal bugs and might not necessarily be bloodborne?

Though I do hope that panic buyers, hoarders, and profiteers get robbed, have their pallets of toilet paper break down before they can use it, and other just desserts. They are truly scum.

What about prospective investors? Because I've been watching the stock market, waiting for the crash to bottom out so that I can profit off of the recovery. Where do I fit on your spectrum of human trash?

Waiting to dive in? Stocks aren't food or necessary for survival. I have also wondered if I wanted to take this opportunity to start reinvesting.

So no, you're not part of the problem.

Stay safe and wash your hands, Miles.

Please.

Wash your hands. We love you.

I've been in food service for a decade. My hands are the cleanest part.
