Nah I dont think so, Im pretty sure he got an IP ban.

I was wondering about this, too... but everyone loves Bob Ross, right?

Yeah, it's shitty, but you guys don't have all the info here. There is a driver/program called Razer Synapse, which yes, requires the user to make an account (shitty), and yes, requires a connection (shittier), but as far as I can tell it's just for saving user settings profiles in the cloud (which is fucking stupid and unnecessary, but not malicious). Now, for my Deathadder, I was able to easily bypass all that garbage by just downloading an older legacy driver, which works great, has all the customization options, and isn't stupid as fuck with requiring a connection.

Look, there's even a Naga legacy driver easily accessible right here. It does say modified today though, so maybe they did go in and fuck it up with an update (although, maybe not), but it looks like y'all are jumping to conclusions.

@Hunter5024: Yeah, I read it. You're arguing semantics. Physical dependence, which could also be called a physical addiction, is a real thing, no matter how you label it. And that doesn't disprove my point anyway. Marijuana does not create a physical dependence--only psychological. I'm not at all claiming that means it has no negative effects, though; it has the potential to do so. Now, you might have already answered this (I haven't read all your posts, admittedly), but do you have any personal experience with marijuana use from which to draw conclusions? Or are you just judging from your armchair?

No, because it's simply not as bad in any way, shape or form. It's not physically addictive, it's not physically damaging if vaporized (my preferred method of intake), and there's no hangovers. Marijuana can ruin your life if you are predisposed to psychological addictions, but then again so can masturbating or drinking cough syrup.

@Colourful_Hippie said:

Who the hell says that? Of course you would want to use weed in moderation and no it isn't physically addicting. The only form of addiction that marijuana can create from extensive use over a long period of time is psychological. There are absolutely no elements in weed that can create a physical withdrawal effect.

Do you guys just believe everything you get off of pro pot websites or what?

Understand what you're saying, but no. They probably just don't ever see or hear about people getting the shakes or having seizures if they're deprived from the drug (because that doesn't happen), like pills can do for example.

Ignoring the fact that it would take a high volume of pills over a long period of time to produce withdrawals that severe, and even then only to someone whose already prone to seizures, it doesn't change the fact that an addiction to weed is still an addiction, and acting like that's not a really shitty thing benefits nobody. And comparing weed to other drugs isn't a competent defense, stoners like to spout off facts about some of the shittiest substances on the planet just because it makes weed look better by comparison, but that's like saying a husband who hits his wife isn't so bad by comparing him to a husband who murdered his.

Weed can definitely produce a psychological addiction (but absolutely no physical addiction whatsoever), and most certainly has the potential to decrease motivation and drive in some people, but it really all depends on the specific person and their levels of usage. I've personally known people on both sides of the spectrum. So while you're not wrong, I think you may be exaggerating a bit.

What I have learned about others from this thread: 1.POT CAN RUIN PEOPLE'S LIVES THIS IS A BAD MOVE HERES SOME ANECDOTAL EVIDENCE! 2. I SMOKE EVERYDAY AND WOOOOO LEGALIZED WEED ALSO I AM THE SMARTEST PERSON IN THE WORLD ANECDOTAL EVIDENCE!!!!! 3. I DON'T SMOKE AND AM ON SOME WEIRD MORAL HIGH HORSE BUT I AM GLAD THIS HAPPENED BECAUSE TAXES AND STUFF

How about 4: I've partook quite heavily at various points in my life, and while I'm kind of over the whole thing right now, I recognize it's so utterly harmless, and its benefits far outweigh its detriments.

I voted for its legalization because I believe using marijuana is incredibly stupid and true freedom is the freedom to be incredibly stupid, as long as you keep the consequences to yourself.

That said, there is currently no four-minute way to determine the impairment of a user while their vehicle's on the shoulder. Law enforcement needs the THC equivalent of the breathalyzer as soon as possible.

And since it is still illegal on a national level, the ATF is still perfectly free to raid growers, sellers, and users. We're far from the "go and roll a fatty" point.

The level of impairment of an experienced Cannabis user while driving is virtually none at all. That can't be said of even the most experienced drinkers when they're truly intoxicated. Alcohol and marijuana are barely analogous in any way.

I'm fine with 7 for now. Despite some definitely welcome changes, it just doesn't seem necessary whatsoever. And the whole Start Screen thing seems shoehorned in and weirdly disruptive to the Windows legacy.

If that doesn't hurt the credibility of Political Compass, I don't know what does, unless you think Obama and Romney share the exact same views on nearly everything, which is an utter load of bullshit. Except, of course, if you're one of those delightfully hollow "whoever wins, we lose" people that just love to paint themselves as above it all, and bust into every discussion to drop their clever one-liner.

@PillClinton: In movies polarizing would be indicated by mixed reviews, since almost everything gets a positive or near positive review in games you have to adjust a bit but Resident Evil 6 is much closer to polarizing. Of course you could also have something like Diablo 3 which has a vocal minority that says its great and all of the press does too but the vast majority of players stopped playing within a pretty short time period particularly for a game like Diablo (less than 5% of the playerbase being left at this point). But 85 is almost a better score than 90 because 90 means "great but not without fault" but 85 might mean "great but you might not like X" and certain players will like X immensely. Of course 90 should probably be 65-70 and 85 should probably be 60 but oh well.

Agreed on game scores badly needing adjustment, with this whacky scale we have of a 60 basically being garbage, and a, say, 30 or 40 having no difference whatsoever and meaning almost nothing at all. That's why I like GB's basic 5 point scale, though. Scores mean a lot more here, and it just makes more damn sense, short of ditching scores outright. But there are problems with that too.
