  1. The Trump Presidency...is Over

    This is seriously surreal. It has to be some crappy deepfake hoax. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-raffensperger-call-transcript-georgia-vote/2021/01/03/2768e0cc-4ddd-11eb-83e3-322644d82356_story.html%3foutputType=amp
  2. The Trump Presidency...is Over

    I want to say I'm surprised at the absolute lack of international outrage and condemnation but I guess I am not really but fuck me what the fuck are our media doing if Jeremy Corbyn is basically reportedly murdering Jews whilst Trump reportedly gives candy to all the kids like the nice old man he is?! https://edition.cnn.com/2021/01/03/politics/donald-trump-brad-raffensperger-call-washington-post/index.html

  4. Questions

    "Reports that say that something hasn't happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns—the ones we don't know we don't know. And if one looks throughout the history of our country and other free countries, it is the latter category that tends to be the difficult ones.[1]" Not to be my actual usual political self but I do wanna say - null values are one helluva of a drug....hehehe.
  5. Brexit - UK negotiates a deal

    yeah but we're getting our NetScape back 🤦🏾‍♂️ https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/boris-johnsons-brexit-deal-refers-23236197
  6. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

    Ahhh you're smashing it! Don't think I even got there on my original playthrough - I'm still not playing and probs on the boat just after getting the alkhemy pot from the djinn(forget his name but im sure it's something like al-khemi?)
  7. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

    Not sure I recall if I even have jurisdiction here but may split out OnRush posts on laptop later just cos. @Fierce_LiNk where you upto with this atm? I really wanna kinda pick up where I left off alongside you but no idea how you're pacing it. I imagine with Xmas you're blasting?
  8. Questions

    Aha! How is it that you find out? Was half-aware of it as a thing didn't think it was much done by many tho(gotta get dem views innit)

    man just wtf why is the ps messages app obsolete now you gotta get ps app from these same ass motherfucjing bitches who split the two just a few years ago its minor but like wtf bro make up your mind you wanna be unified or distributed jeez
  10. Questions

    Hmm I was just speculation there may be a correlation in your content that more of what you want to use doesnt work. Youtube has certainly gone hard on the ads recently and I did note some stuff doesn't preview embed in whatsapp lately - I'd be curious if its happening to the same videos both here and whatsapp. I think I'd conclude rights/drm issues similar to yourself - poss linked to tevenue protrction and Youtube's monetization schemes. Pure speculation tho.
  11. The Trump Presidency...is Over

    Doesn't it just make you feel so dissonant though? All 'where are the adults in the room' abd Emporor's New Clothes - its an absolute madness. I've been following politics more closely since reading the Cambridge Analytica files a few years ago - I read the 440+ page Mueller report and I've read I'd say 10+ court summaries from these election challenges(not much of a feat they're very samey lack of standing lack of merit lack of recourse/moot for court) I read the UK russia report(v diff styled to US Mueller...either lazy or very obfuscated for reasons) and I just keep wondering; 1. Why is NO-ONE taking any responsible action? its like a collective helplessness/diffusion of responsibility. The UK Russia report actually quite much concluded and criticised the government for that - knowing and taking no action. The services that investigate do their jobs but it is not the job of Intelligence to bring the actions forward that are concluded from investigations or operations. This actually was echoed somewhat by both Mueller at his time(people seemed to think it was 'his' job to go after Trump and act on the report - No. He was the objective special counsel. John Bolton similarly kind of explained his reasons for not testifying in the Impeachment - it was a theatrical more than practical trial. They weren't bringing it well - the Democrats got into tribal 'Us and Them!' ideation over utilising the facts and findings of it. Why they didnt have more killers to really push that I do NOT understand. 2. How anyone can be in any doubt - the 440+ pages whilst long are not unclear. It's all there. Plus testimonies from witnesses(i watched some of the hearings too - Gordon Sondland was interesting and essentially a slightly damning piece imo) AND THE FACT HE IS NOW PARDONING ALL OF THEM. Like I literally knew from back then he would. Also with all this election shit - how can anyone believe it? Or Trump? More importantly - where are our voices in society that should be drawing these lines very firmly in the sand and why are they not being heard over patent falsehoods? It's confusing and infuriating. I just cannot comprehend it. Quis custodiet ipsos custodes??
  12. Brexit - UK negotiates a deal

    Not tackled the doument yet apparently its like ~1250pages and the time they had a whole deal text before a few years back it was far too mundane - apparently this is still quite vague and has a number of conditional arbitration committees and councils etc all written into - basically its a piece of paper saying we've got a few basic rules but we're now going to spend our future constantly in negotiations on every little issue. Likely the EU will batter us as they will be united and - as we have been for all of this - we will be the ones divided and unable to make up our minds(because our domestic politics and house is so split; even the govt and their backbenchers - and this is all part of the huge price the UK must pay for chancing its stupidity on the political idealogy of populism and identity over real terms benefits).
  13. Questions

    It does seem weird - I apparently can't paste your link either but Gangnam Style parses fine(picked a super popular filter in case its youtube's backends blocking embedding of videos - speculating merely because my whatsapp 'embeds' of youtube videos dont happen recently but other links continue as normal). Can you find any videos you WOULD post that you find DO work? (i am nothing on the technical backend of this place btw these are all my speculations lol)

    You guys. You're guys are OK, you know that? Good guys. Best guys. You guys.
  15. The Trump Presidency...is Over

    I knew it was gonna happen. We all knew it was gonna happen. Still - the rage fury anger and sheer dissappointment that the pardons have been allowed to fly free irk me - Manafort is beyond the pale. High level foreign/Russian agent and...allowed to walk scott free now. I knew it was coming. I fucking KNEW it would - but I am SO angry at the whole nature of the systems around all of this supposed democracy that have failed so many checks and balances and let this filth run so rife and deep. I'm so furious.
  16. pop me a psn @Rumdumcious will probs OnRush any time lol

  17. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

    lol yeah I got into it a bit heavy when they PS+'d it - lemme know if you fancy any random online teamage at any point I'd love an excuse to get into it again /off-topic
  18. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

    I forgot you're a secret Dragon -.- You're basically where I left off! Maybe I'll steal some Christmas magic and jump back in to try and keep up with ye! No promises yet but I do need a motivator to keep me going...maybe if I could steal just a little bit of your Enthusiasm!
  19. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

    OnRush? Isn't that a random racer? Why?
  20. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

    I started it up recently when it was on Sale myself - but fell off a fair few hours in. Ironically just when it was opening up a bit more(Swaine/Boat). Need to get back into it - how far in are you @Fierce_LiNk? I fell of on my PS3 later than I am atm originally but thought Switch would get me to stick with it. You played the whole of the original before?
  21. The Trump Presidency...is Over

    Not actually directly Trump related(though I've kept following much if that and a number of the lawsuits and political theatre ongoing) but I guess I'm using this as a surrogate politics thread atm plus his bumchumming of Russia and Putin irks and disturbs me immensely; Is there anything quite more Russian on the internet than this? Get half-murdered to death on Putin's orders with an internationally banned nerved agent THEN being defiant enough to recover THEN being so Russian you literally just ring them up to collect your reciepts? Is this not literally your typical action movie revenge hero plot?? Someone get this guy some guns and bombs and shit, stat! https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/dec/21/navalny-russian-agent-novichok-death-plot
  22. Cyberpunk 2077 (10th December 2020)

    I don't actually invest or follow except peep a thing or two I think relevant from time to time(eg when i was in supermarket with mate at paddys i suggested watched Diageo - ofc alcohol shot up during pandemic) but im too poor for the money game alone too slack. I think you're not in with a bad shout punting on it at that price looking at its history tho - I think they will long term recover on that financial front. Market being AAA gaming helps a bit too imo.
  23. Cyberpunk 2077 (10th December 2020)

    I saw they're actually on the open market as stock in the Polish/Warsaw exchange or something? So they have that side as a publicly traded company both bolstering AND detracting from their success. Their price tanked around paddy's/pandemic time peaked around 4th dec then tumbled to a similar price again now as around paddy's. Shares are basically back to their early January prices. Their stock market side may help them survive and may help them get funding again in future?
  24. Cyberpunk 2077 (10th December 2020)

    Not to harp on about my own point - the branding and integrity of the PS Store *especially* for AAA style releases is becoming tountamount going forward - the ps5 has a huge diskless console install base meaning that gateway of the PS store is front left right and centre of everything they do with the next generation going forwards. I actually, whilst it is weirf unprecedented shocking can be compared to smaller titles etcetc - I think there's a shrewdness in Sony of saying right here and right no this is not cool it hurts our customers and hurts us. We'll be fine without you ty bruv. Srsly. PS Storefront is HUGE for sony moving forwards with PS5. These are smart enough next gen decisions given their current models imo.
  25. Cyberpunk 2077 (10th December 2020)

    The issue also surely comes into the fact thag it's quite brand-damging for sony/ps store as a storefront/marketplace that they're the owners and facilitators of? Can you really be having a game of these many issues sitting front and centre of your brand - especially similar to point HoT made about mass market gamers who may end up very confused and annoyed about it?
