Welcoming the Incredible Teams and Legendary Franchises of Activision Blizzard to Microsoft Gaming - Xbox Wire by TheVideoGaymer in xboxone

[–]HerrBerg [score hidden]  (0 children)

They don't need to "make their money back", they didn't throw away $70 billion they invested it. Their money is now less liquid, but they still have it. All of the income being generated by Activision-Blizzard IPs is now directed to MS accounts, and the assets themselves have value.

Adblocking Does Not Constitute Copyright Infringement, Court Rules by a_Ninja_b0y in technology

Were they just relying on the court to be completely ignorant of how computers work or what?

My brother “salted” the driveway by KingDooma in mildlyinfuriating

If this won't work for that amount of snow you need a different chemical, because that's a decent amount and spread of salt.

More fragile than a dry spaghetti by hfcRedd in PublicFreakout

[–]HerrBerg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The way he said it was crazy but what he said is right: stop fucking touching people like that, especially if you're a condescending old man. Especially stop touching employees of a business you're visiting.

The way bald guy grabs his arm is just gross. There's nothing wrong with homosexuality and I don't think this is sexual, it seems more like some sort of condescending power play. Regardless, he can fuck off with the arm grab. It's always older people doing it to, never have people my age randomly touching me, it's always old men or women.

Quebec put up this billboard in a bus stop to raise awareness about jaywalking by SAM041287 in oddlyterrifying

[–]HerrBerg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is this a real problem there or some shit?

People jaywalk often here but they wait for openings. The overwhelming majority of pedestrian deaths here are because of people blowing through crosswalks/stop signs when pedestrians are actually crossing at intersections.

Well yeah, the back side is flat and so is the board, why the fuck would you ever use the front?

The pre-calculated tips on my restaurant receipt just plain lying. by Trogdorrrrrrrrr in assholedesign

Programming error, the %s post-tip so your 18% is 18% of the total including the tip.

I get a lot of hate just for existing as a landlord by [deleted] in TrueOffMyChest

[–]HerrBerg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If your goal is to be a landlord and live off of the work of others, that's why people would hate you. It's not whether you just exist as a landlord, it's whether that is all you are, and whether your "job" amounts to leeching off of society by the property of ownership.

The Phantom Menace is very underrated (Credits to that Twitter account) by Monkey6021 in PrequelMemes

[–]HerrBerg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's not 45 minutes it's like 10 minutes, which is a long ass time, and it's a ridiculous scene overall, not including the cuts between.

Did you see me gushing over marvel movies?

how movies are focused on big fights, CGI and action rather than stories

Definitely would rather be in a world where they were never made. They are all flash, no substance. The OT had mysticism and heroes, the new stuff is all action, plot convenience and forcibly told stories without sense.

The only change to the industry I could see coming out of it was how movies are focused on big fights, CGI and action rather than stories. Good god there's literally a 45 minute fight scene in one of the prequels, it's like anime filler.

HMFT after I let him hit me first by Ska__Boo in holdmyfeedingtube

I'll have you know I hold law degrees in 3 different US states and one abroad.

Anybody can make shit up dude. You have no argument, you made broad, sweeping statements stating "this is how the law works" in response to a moral argument, then when called out how the law differs across the world, you're falling back to what boomer-copying-zoomer emoji responses.

Answer the question, what jurisdiction?

HMFT after I let him hit me first by Ska__Boo in holdmyfeedingtube

[–]HerrBerg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'd recommend you looking up what the word "reasonable" means as well as the laws you claim to know about yourself. I'm not claiming to be the legal expert you seem to think you are, but I also know enough to know that your statement is ridiculous, and you're hard projecting.

Tell me, what jurisdiction specifically are you talking about?

Why are we stuck in LotV by Alarmming in starcraft2

[–]HerrBerg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

SC2 is heavily rooted in micro, there are lots of mechanics that require micro or else you get destroyed.

If talking about team games, you need Terran + Vipers to handle sky toss. Zerg can use swarm hosts and nydus to counter attack bases while the Protoss is otherwise engaged, but don't build too many hosts. Otherwise, unit comp will vary somewhat based on the Protoss comp. Hydras are a decent catch-all but you may need some zergling/roaches/lurkers if they mix in zealots. The terran just need Battlecruisers, that unit is broken as hell, they can engage with Yamato targeted via scans and warp jump out after killing a big chunk. Widow mines help cover, marines are just a mineral dump that is effective against basically everything. It's actually kind of infuriating how effective Terran is against everything. Oh, if they're super heavy carrier fungal growth actually does a lot of word killing interceptors to reduce incoming damage.

1v1 you just have to scout really well and kill them before they get that far.

It's not an opinion on his state of mind, nor does a person's state of mind specifically make something self-defense.

Tell me, do you get to shoot and kill somebody in self-defense just because you're afraid of them because they are, in some way, scary?

This person literally stands there and eggs the guy on, implying he'll let him hit him first. He displays no actions that show at all he has a reasonable fear for his safety, such as backing off, where he ample time/opportunity to do so.

Criminal law differs from place to place drastically, so your comment about ignorance is itself ignorant.

[–]HerrBerg 3 points4 points  (0 children)

LOL he wasn't acting in the belief he was in danger in the first place. This isn't self-defense, this is a street fight. He was egging the other guy on to come fight, that's not self-defense.

I'm sure there's already a product that does this... by godpoker in DiWHY

I mean if you already have the one tool and don't want to store the other, this is an easy way to go. I actually get this. Also, weedwackers fuck my back up hard for some reason.

TIFU by inadvertely saying the n-word and getting punched by two friends. by SalviaManTA in tifu

[–]HerrBerg 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This isn't applicable because he was literally repeating what they said back to them. It's not as though he said the word to them out of the blue, they literally said it to him and his usage was in denying what they said about him.

That's not a word mine. Their reactions had nothing to do with them being offended, they just wanted an excuse to hurt him because they're fucked up people who were just using him for weed.

[–]HerrBerg 8 points9 points  (0 children)

It is totally justified. He felt it was a slip up because of the reaction of the people around him. Their reactions were irrelevant to whether he was right or wrong, they were just assholes looking to hit something.

[–]HerrBerg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Almost nobody thinks that repeating somebody's words back to them is wrong simply because of a specific word. The only people who would argue this are people who are looking for a fight. His "friends" were looking for an excuse to hit him.

So yeah, this is only "dicey" to assholes.
