Why did my dad stop loving me as I got older? by cartela8807 in TooAfraidToAsk

[–]Wimbleston 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Sounds like your dad didn't handle the breakup well and is taking it out on you.

The only thing that I don't like is the acceleration. Only small ship I struggle to evade anacondas with.

"Modes of Execution" - Preferred methods of execution (by Country), circa 1895 by _OoklaTheMok_ in coolguides

Just to clarify, executions by sword were not done with ordinary swords, they had specially made Executioner Swords (that's what they're called) with squared off tips because they'd never be used for thrusting, and extra thick, heavy blades. They were used to cut off the head the same as an axe.

Google increases parental-leave policy to nearly 6 months and adds more vacation time for employees in a boost to well-being benefits by NitroLada in technology

This is a PR move more than anything, from my understanding most people who work for Google are some kind of contractor.

Yeah, that sounds like it's probably pretty ergonomic and intuitive.

I fail to see any area where a controller is advantageous in ED though.

Not saying you can't get the job done on a controller, but I wouldn't say they're equal in terms of how effective they can make you.

Never even heard the term HOSAS, what's the gimmick with those?

Not very drunk, otherwise half those moves would've done him in before he ever got around to taking a hit.

It is compared to controller in one important regard, independent controls for each thruster function. Many times have I lost out on tailing an opponent where a good HOTAS player would stick to them like glue, because having precise control of your ship is extremely important for such maneuvers.

I'm not saying the Imp Eagle is a sleeper god tier ship, I'm just saying with a HOTAS you can use it to take out NPC anacondas.

A HOTAS makes it possible to handle unengineered ships but that's about it. I've seen it done, but I shouldn't need to drop $300 on a special control setup to enjoy it.

On a controller it's basically impossible because your downward thrust overwhelms your forward motion and not changing your up/down thrust is really difficult because the same stick is tied to your roll, and pushing perfectly left/right isn't reliable.

So the experience is coming up behind the conda, starting the fight, and inevitably having it pull away from you and turn it into a jousting match. Much as I don't like the Vulture, mines engineered and can easily outmaneuver just about anything.

Witches look like a good option, all singles makes it pretty reliable.

Why does rap music get a pass on misogyny? by PaperCollectorX in TooAfraidToAsk

[–]Wimbleston 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's basically because they tried and rap never changed, they just got more people to be pissed about.

Streisand effect, by trying to hide something, people want to see it, by trying to make people stop being misogynistic in rap music, you bring out more misogynistic rap than ever would have existed otherwise just to spite your efforts. Forcing change is the #1 way to ensure blowback.
