Re: Anton Yelchin killed in car accident

Apparently his vehicle, a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, was part of a recent recall. There was a problem with the shifter not providing enough feedback for people, causing people to think they had the car in park only to realise it was instead in neutral.

Re: Umptety shooting in usa. Orlando case

Was the shooter a homophobe? ATM it's too soon to say why he picked that target- or whether it being a gay club was incidental. Apparently the shooter's father released a statement saying that religion had nothing to do with this attack, and that the shooter was angry because he saw two men kissing...

Re: FAA unveils mandatory registration program for drones

Therefore, that person must... continue not face any serious consequences for his actions. He must instead be given a lighter sentence, ...

Re: Canada Election 2015

Thinking about it, I'm a little bit bittersweet about the Trudeau's victory. While I'm happy the Liberals won, I'm not that big a fan of political dynasties. It's not much of one yet, but I hope it's not the beginning of a larger one.

Re: Canada Election 2015

You know, every time I hear the Conservatives try to blame part of their loss on the collapse of the NDP, I hear an admission of how they were relying on the split vote between the NDP and the Liberals to win. It's also an admission that they know full well that the current election system really fa...

Re: Canada Election 2015

Until recently, I fully expected Stephen Harper to get another term. With only one right wing party and two left leaning parties (to varying degrees), the PC's just have to much of an advantage in the current Canadian election system. Though recently, the NDP have been taking a dive in the polls, so...

Re: World of Warships

So, apparently the supertesters have been begging for the higher tiers Russian destroyers to be nerfed to something reasonable before they're released. They have excellent range on their guns and good damage, and are excellent at setting ships on fire while the opposing ships can't even see them. Re...

Saw the episode yesterday with some friends. All of us were really of the opinion that we can't really tell if that was a good episode or now until we see part 2. It really felt like just half an episode. I wonder if the better suggestion would have been to stick both parts together and do it as a T...

My hatred of low tier destroyers continues. First battle in the Hosho and I'm playing on Big Race. Most of my team is dead, and I'm being fired on by several ships, but I'm heading into the south west of the map where I'm going to be at least a little bit covered by the islands there. I even managed...

Re: World of Warships

A note to destroyer drivers: At the beginning of the match, press the "P" button on your keyboard. That turns off your secondaries and your AA. In a destroyer, you don't really have secondaries, and your AA will get you killed far more often than it helps you. Last night I was in a match in my Kuma....

Re: World of Warships

It's funny. Up until a couple of weeks ago, I just didn't find battleships to be that fun. The low traverse rate of their turrets, the high reload time of their guns, and their terrible accuracy just wasn't fun for me. I'd fire at a cruiser, have almost all my shots miss, and then have to wait anoth...

Re: World of Warships

For those that have not figured it out, the game has a heavy element of rock-paper-scissors to it: Battleships kick the shit out of cruisers, but can't hit destroyers due to their long reload times and relatively few guns; Cruisers can't pen battleships (but can do at least some HE damage to them),...
