  1. I Learned Something Today

    This isn't a fair assessment. It needs to be done via department of transportation districts. Each state has different, usually county based DOT programs that are either better or worse at maintenance due to a variety of factors both in and out of their control. For example, Trinity county in Texas has better roads than Harrison county. Averages for an entire state can be misleading. Source: my father worked for TXDOT for 27 years.
  2. GOTTA GO FAST (Speedrunning)

    AGDQ 2018 is here!
  3. GOTTA GO FAST (Speedrunning)

    Speedrunning video games is really interesting to me, and maybe someone else in this forum. To speedrun a game is to beat the game (or the challenge in particular, All Bosses, *insert weapon here* only) as quickly as possible. This can be done regularly or with glitches that are naturally occurring within the game (Glitchless vs Any%). We'll start with one of my favorite series, Dark Souls. Want retro? Here's a great Super Mario Bros speedrun. This one is great, because his grand mother is there cheering him on. Maybe Super Mario 64? This run blows my damned mind. Like First Person shooters? Here's Halo: CE on Legendary. And Halo 3, Legendary as well.
  4. General news thread

    I find the entire situation interesting. It's a case of buyer's remorse. The left is quick to crucify these days on rape allegations. Innocent until proven guilty be damned. But since Aziz is loved by the left, it's caused a rift in their groupthink. Of course, if this was actually rape, she could have gone to the police. Not went to the media.
  5. General news thread

    This is a wonderful educational video that some men in popular positions should heed to. Aka, Aziz. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/jan/15/aziz-ansari-behaviour-matters-allegations-date-young-woman-coercion-sexual-behaviour Looks like some woman is coming out saying that he forced her to have sex with him. Maybe I'm a cynical bastard, but I think that if Aziz wasn't a rich, popular comedian, this allegation wouldn't exist. Maybe if Aziz was really Aaron who lived in a trailer park and worked at a truck stop, the woman wouldn't have much to say on the matter.
  6. @Ulric First there was the butchered AK. Now there's this...
  7. Let's Talk Dark Souls

    Soul Level 1 run of Dark Souls 2: Complete! Took me less time than DS1, but then again this was a more optimized run. Fairly certain I can do DS1 level 1 in about 4 hours, if not less.
  8. Let's Talk Dark Souls

    First, everyone needs to be caught up on the story. Dark Souls 3 comes out in twenty days. Thus I have twenty days before my life is consumed once again by the flame. Dark Souls 1 PVP: Pivot Backstabs Dark Souls 2 PVP: spin spin spin R1 katana spam spin spin Dark souls 3 PVP: ????? Praise the sun, The Fluffy Tail, and may we never have another boss fight like The Bed of Chaos.
  9. @Ulric, it almost looks like this guy tried to drill for an auto sear and failed miserably.
  10. I just found out that this exists. The Best of Armslist EDIT: BUT I CAN'T READ GOOD
  11. Let's Talk Dark Souls

    Restarted my Level 1 run of Dark Souls 2 yesterday. I realize the first time I tried, I was flying by the seat of my pants. I had a general idea of what to do... And then nothing past that. This next time has a lot more equipment strategy behind it. Following closely to this guide.
  12. Let's Talk Dark Souls

    Posting this again in honor of the Remaster release.
  13. General news thread

    "Accidentally" sent an entire state warning of a missile inbound on their position. Either someone's head is going to really going to roll, or the gubmint ain't tellin' us somethin'.
  14. General news thread

    Yes, but... https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16294364
  15. Your Gun Porn Thread

    Placed the order. Found it for 100$ cheaper with a cash discount, so I'm having it shipped. Hopefully I'll get to shoot it next weekend.
  16. General news thread

    I feel like this is a thing where some people posted it as a joke, the joke caught one, one or two extremely gullible individuals decided to give it a shot (They exist. I have stories.) and major news outlets are calling it something bigger than it really is.
  17. Your Gun Porn Thread

    Welllllll AR-15 upper has been put on the backburner for the new purchase. I have wanted a bolt action for a bit. Was looking at the Mossberg MVP. I love iron sights, and the fact it takes AR-10 magazines (SR-25 pattern) is a big bonus in my book. But then Ruger had to come out with the Ruger American Ranch in 7.62x39. No irons, but cheaper to shoot by far, super lightweight, and all around looks like a really fun gun for either camping, the range, the truck, whatever. Picked up this tonight. And ordered 100 rounds of FMJ and 100 rounds of soft points. Plus an extra 10 round magazines from Promag just to test out. I'll be looking at places to get the rifle tomorrow.
  18. Post Election Thread: Democracy Dies In Darkness And You Can Help

    So what are they going for here? Something bad? Because instead, it looks rad
  19. Let's Talk Dark Souls

    Well holy shit. This was entirely unexpected. A remaster of Dark Souls 1? Fuck yeah. TIME FOR SOME CLASSICS TO RETURN
  20. @Sturgeon and I are racing to see who can get their hands on this gun first.
  21. The Sovereign Citizen Movement

    I'm kinda happy about this outcome, to be honest.
  22. I like turtles

    Always loved snapping turtles. I used to catch box tortoises as a kid, and I remember when soft-shell turtles were plentiful in the lakes where I grew up. But Alligator Snapping turtles take the cake in the "What the FUCK" category. I once showed a picture of an alligator snapping turtle to my girlfriend at the time, who grew up in El Paso. She thought it was fake. Ever wonder if someone would be stupid enough to allow a snapping turtle to bite them? Same guy, I think? Though this time he does it with a cast? This one is staged, I think. This video is near my home town, which is hilarious and amazing.
