As bad a game as Ascension is, playing the app against the AI makes for a nice time-waster, usually while I exercise.

I have now broken the app.  I have several hundred cards in play and it's crawling....

My level of respect is "LEET", or "1337". I'm pretty awesome now.

You still initially upvoted that comment, Xerxes. :)

I got to play with a VR headset today (HTC Vive I think it was). I have to say I was very surprised by how immersive and realistic it feels. It wasn't perfect, of course, but it worked really well. I was wondering why it hasn't caught on at all yet. And then I remembered it costs just shy of what getting all three current gen consoles would cost, and needs a bunch of space, and has a limited game selection.

I don't imagine VR gaming will eventually replace traditional gaming, but it'll very likely eventually become something alongside them. It could be great fun, once the costs drop.

...spin-offs are still better for all of the previously cited reasons.
But not strictly better, because the spinoff can have a different cost than the expansion.

I was wondering why it hasn't caught on at all yet. And then I remembered it costs just shy of what getting all three next gen consoles would cost, and needs a bunch of space, and has a limited game selection.

I don't imagine VR gaming will eventually replace traditional gaming, but it'll very likely eventually become something alongside them. It could be great fun, once the costs drop.

I got a chance to play with a friend's Vive a couple weeks ago, and can confirm both the awesome realism and the ridiculous price.

That said, at some point in the future someone will release a game where you can play a game like Freespace or Elite Dangerous in VR, and that will be fucking awesome.  Yet it'll be overshadowed by a ton of recycled FPS games.

I've always had a problem with this logic... "Don't use the same password for everything, because if someone gets access to that password, then they have access to all your accounts.  Instead, keep all your different passwords locked under one single master pasword..."

As long as the password is physically on your computer and not stored on a server anywhere, it's way safer. Contrary to popular belief, the main security threat regarding your passwords is not that a human being is able to correctly guess it.

Well, it's an issue if it's a laptop that could potentially get lost/stolen/etc.
For laptops with sensitive data, it's a good idea to use drive encryption. (On Windows, it's called BitLocker.)

An alternative answer would have been "a number with a 1 in the hundreds place"

Me: Are you still selling six months of Macutab for the price of five?
Receptionist: No, sorry.
Me: Damn, okay, I'll take 6 months anyway.
Receptionist: That'll be $150.
Me: Each month is still $30, right?
Receptionist: Yes.
Me: So it's like it was before?
Receptionist: I suppose so, but no free Macutab this time.

This was great. The level of misunderstanding in this transaction is fantastic. Top kek.

Fun fact: before this post, I had exactly 6 posts per day.

I mean... it's not even "technically" correct.  It's entirely correct.

Well, stuff that's "technically" correct is entirely correct. It just isn't what whoever thought of that question was thinking of.

Awaclus is technically correct here.

Of course, another good smart-ass answer would be 162 in the first three slots.

This shows that you actually understand the question and can answer it. The answers in the picture don't demonstrate that the student knows the difference between the places.

Demonstrating that you understood the question kinda defeats the purpose of answering that way though.

I meant that as a real question. What was the misunderstanding? I don't get his thought process.

He thought of it as a price reduction if you take 6 months at once. He didn't realize that the amount the price was reduced was exactly the same as what a single month would cost.

So the unreduced 6 months were more expansive than 6 * 1 month?  ???
