  2. Graduating with a psyc degree, a philosophy degree, and an EMR certification. What are my chances of not sleeping on the streets?

      100% if like everyone else with those degrees you go to law school.

      I would have thought that EMR would have gotten you work?

      Psychology should give you work but you need additional courses. Preferably in behavioral therapy.

       

      Philosophy grads actually get hired by big corporations but you can always go into neurocognitivism side of psychology, get a pHd and then your job prospects are also good. 

      EMR should get you a yurb too

  3. Never forget, the definition of skycancer.

      The thought of meeting a fellow wotlabber IRL scares the living shit out of me. :kappa:

      :kappa: The thought that you still can. There's quite a few well-known tankers that live near Vancouver.

      Never forget watching a doco on his younger years. His first wife was asked why she married him knowing his condition. She said that thanks to the Cold War she thought everyone was going to be dead in a handful of years anyway, so why not.

      RIP indeed. Whose going to stop the robots now!?

      The one pic really does look like the Pearl river.

      I miss that map, it wasnt perfect but way better than 50% of maps in the game. I hope they return that and Hidden Village with reworks when they rework maps to HD.

      Pearl River had serious map balance issues where you couldn't rotate at all as if you committed somewhere bad you couldn't run out, and if you got out in time there was nowhere to go to be viable in because you couldn't control anything else. 

      That said both the middle and north design were pretty well made, plenty of terrain for corridors to abuse and several lanes to switch to in case you picked a loser. Only real problem was that you couldn't get out of anywhere so a lot of people had issues with it and so it got removed

       

      (even though I really liked it, super fun in T6 SH with cheekibreeki traps :serb: )

      My best memory of Pear River was being in CHAI as one of two non Chinese speakers and just damage farming instead. I forget who we fought, but I think we brought a lot of Foch's.

      Somehow my 1TB Toshiba drive has survived 4 years of usage so far, no idea how.

      I mean, I have an old 750GB Seagate HDD from 2009 thats still going strong. currently powering my old gaming rig, now in use by my little brother. 

    4. HowitzerBlitzer

      HowitzerBlitzer

      This drive cost me $55 CAD in 2014, and Toshiba HDD reviews from that time aren't too good.

      Even if it does fail, I have about 30 Samsung 80GB drive behind me, and several 250GB drives.

  12. Finding people I know on planes is like catching them watching porn.

    1. GloriousPotatoes

      GloriousPotatoes

      ...or finding people you know in porn. It's good blackmail.

      orzel286

      Damn, I've never managed to find anyone I know in porn vids I watched. Maybe I should stop watching hentai? :feelsbad:

    3. GloriousPotatoes

      GloriousPotatoes

      You could always blackmail them into giving you the footage, so that you're in possession of more blackmail.

      Or even blackmail them into doing it in the first place.

      I 'd go with least 1/2 a day, better a full day, in dark beer with a high malt content. For drinking a prefer Pils with a high hops, not a fan of dark beer there, but hops has a bitter taste, which I don't think you are after with flesh that is rumored to resemble chicken when it comes to taste.

       

      Though I'm no cook by any means.

      Hmmm, I've eaten it but never cooked it. Mine was done like a steak in a garlic butter sauce.

      Don't think they have burn in periods, but the 2016 Q1 report did include a breakdown of annual stats accumulated over 3 years since 2013. Data looks a bit polluted since they didn't list unfailed drives added/replaced, but it's something. https://www.backblaze.com/blog/hard-drive-reliability-stats-q1-2016/

      Limited sample size, etc.

      Also have to factor in popularity due to price and therefore increased reports of failures. Toshiba is confirmed trash though.

      EDIT: Nevermind.

      The zoo animal in a cage exhibits all these abnormalities that we know so well from our human companions. Clearly, then, the city is not a concrete jungle, it is a human zoo.

      It was filmed on film. Very hipsterish I guess. You need to watch it on the biggest screen possible. I saw it on a 70mm screen. The visuals are stunning and the sound is incredible. It should win any award possible in the visual/sound categories. Totally worth the $$$ spent to see it in the theater.

      Why the fuck do you even ask that for a Christopher Nolan's movie. Everything he made is just out of this world when it comes to filmography. Best movie director, ever.
