You know, when you think about it...

You'll realize that the plot of PROMETHEUS is just a flashier rehash of ALIENS vs. PREDATOR.

What did you expect... Some ORIGINAL ideas outta Hollywood?

"Dear GamersÖ"

socialwerq:

postapocalypticfashion:

When Aisha Tyler was selected to be the presenter for the 2012 Ubisoft E3 press conference, she received an unprecedented flood of hate from trolls who complained about the fact that she knew nothing about gaming. Too bad haters didnít do their homework first, because as it turns out Aisha Tyler knows more about gaming that all of us put together. Her Facebook response was awesome and predictably went viral. In case you missed it, hereís her masterpiece. Haters, take note.

Dear Gamers

I play.

Iíve played since I was a little kid.

Since I begged my dad to buy me a Nintendo LCD Donkey Kong, Jr.

Since I blew through three weeksí allowance playing Defender at the laundromat.

Since you were a twinge in the left side of your daddyís underoos.

Iíve been a gamer since I made friends with a girl in the 5th grade just to get at her Atari.

Since I missed the bus playing Galaga after school.

Since I missed the start of Return of the Jedi playing Tempest in the theater lobby.

You think you know. You donít know.

Iíve been a gamer since before you could read.

Since I aced midterms after staying up all night playing Evil Tetris.

Since I became dorm champ at Leisure Suit Larry.

Since I double-wielded on Time Crisis 3 at Fuddruckerís.

I was a voice in not one, but two major video game titles.

I hosted the Reach Beta tutorial.

I was a Gears of War superfan panelist at ComicCon.

I hosted the Ubisoft presser at E3 2012.

I didnít do any of it for the money.

For most I got paid next to nothing, and for some, less than that.

I did it because I love video games.

Because Iíve dreamt since I was a kid of being in one of the games I love.

How many games have you done voices for?

How many cons have you repped at?

Your buddyís Unreal Tournament garage deathmatch doesnít count.

I go to E3 each year because I love video games.

Because new titles still get me high.

Because I still love getting swag.

Love wearing my gamer pride on my sleeve.

People ask me what console I play.

Motherfucker, ALL of them.

I get invited to E3 because real gamers know Iím a gamer.

I donít do it for the money.

I have plenty of money.

I donít do it for the fame.

Fuck fame.

I do it because I love video games.

I donít give out my gamertag because I donít want a mess of noob jackholes lining up

to assassinate me on XBL.

I donít give a shit what you think about my gamerscore.

I donít play to prove a point.

I donít play to be the best.

I play because I love it.

I play.

Iíve been playing my whole life.

Iím not ashamed of it.

I donít apologize for it.

Itís who I am.

To the core.

Iím a gamer.

So to all the haters out there who claim I donít play;

To the GAF dicks,

Gamespot trolls,

To every illiterate racist douchebag on Youtube:

Flame away. Go nuts.

Post every jackass comment your heart desires.

Iíll still be playing when your momís kicked you out of her basement

and you have to sell your old-ass console

and get a real job.

For now, I say to you respectfully,

and I mean this from the bottom of my heart,

GFYS.

Saturn hurricane has 1,250 mile-wide eye




Posted by Jason Samenow on April 29, 2013 at 3:56 pm
NASA has obtained first of its kind imagery of a truly gargantuan storm on Saturn with an eye that spans the equivalent distance of about Washington, D.C. to Dallas.

Like hurricanes on Earth, NASA says, the eye is mostly cloud-free.
ďOther similar features include high clouds forming an eye wall, other high clouds spiraling around the eye, and a counter-clockwise spin in the northern hemisphere,Ē NASA writes.

Alright nowÖ Time for some JOE B. Loving!



bvsed-socialist:

Simply one of the greatest people to ever live.

He loves life.

He loves his family.

He loves his country.

Heís a phenomenal legislator.

Heís a fantastic VP and the perfect VP for Obama.

He wrote the Violence Against Women act.

He cares about gay and trans rights.

He wears aviators.

He eats ice cream.

He survived a devastating tragedy and chose to respond by fighting for people in need and living his life with daily joy.

Heís a catholic, but doesnít let their barbaric social stances tell him what to think.

He laughed in Paul Ryanís stupid face.

He sometimes says the wrong thing, but he never lets embarrassment or criticism keep him from being himself.

He refused to kiss the punk ass Popeís punk ass ring because his mother taught him that no man is better than him.

And he rules in about 400 other ways that I didnít even think of.

These assholes barely have enough functioning neurons to operate their own autonomic nervous systems, it's a shame that they're furthering the impairment to their cognitive functions with alcohol as well.

Yay, America!

Charts: Are the NYPD's Stop-and-Frisks Violating the Constitution?



óBy Adam Serwer and Jaeah Lee | Mon Apr. 29, 2013 3:00 AM PDT

This week, New York City is defending itself against a lawsuit that claims its controversial "stop and frisk" policy is used to illegally detain and search people on the basis of race. The subject of an ongoing trial, the suit also argues that the weak justifications given by NYPD officers for most stop-and-frisks fail to meet the constitutional burden for search and seizure. We put together this explainer and some charts to help you make sense of what's going on.

What is "stop and frisk," exactly, and what does it have to do with the NYPD? Starting in the 1970s, in the hope of curbing street crime, New York City began encouraging its officers to stop people they deem suspicious, to question them, and, if there is adequate reason to suspect illegal activities, to pat them down for things like drugs and weapons. This type of police activity has been upheld in the past: In a landmark 1968 case, Terry v. Ohio, a police officer detained three men without a warrant, suspicious that they were casing a local convenience store for a hold-up. One of the men had a revolver, and the Supreme Court ruled that the warrantless search was constitutional because the cop had reasonable suspicion to believe the men were about to commit a crime.

If it's constitutional, then what's the problem? Well, it's not always constitutional. It's only constitutional when the police have reasonable suspicion to believe someone poses a danger, has committed a crime, or is preparing to commit one. And police cannot use race as a criterion for any search and seizure. But New York City has faced allegations of unconstitutional policing against communities of color for a long time.

In 1999, the state Attorney General's Office found that while blacks and Latinos made up about 50 percent of the city's population, they accounted for 84 percent of the police stops (PDF). The same year, in the aftermath of the slaying of Amadou Diallo, the unarmed Guinean immigrant who was shot 41 times by New York City police, the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) sued the city, alleging that stop-and-frisk was unconstitutional. In a settlement, the NYPD promised it would keep close tabs on who it stops and why.
