    Do you feel bad when you pass by an Ugly person or someone else who is not perfect, without smiling?

    in General Discussion on 05 June 2013

    You shouldn't feel bad. It sounds like you're becoming more self aware - basically getting older. Everyone treats attractive people better in all aspects of life, even if they are only slight advantages. Over time they can add up. The Freakonomics podcast just did a piece discussing attractiveness is the key attribute to get tips. It's way more important than actually doing a good job. Also...

    Sony officially states that PlayStation 4 will not have DRM against used games

    in Sony Discussion on 02 June 2013

    Hopefully SONY is smart enough to understand that distribution and good PR is more important than DRM. No DRM on used games is not necessary with the huge push toward direct downloads on PSN....

    Has anything meaningful ever come out of a Kickstarter?

    in Gaming Discussion on 30 May 2013

    Angelus said: Serious question. I'm always seeing news about some new Kickstarter project, and how quickly they're collecting money for their game, but I don't think I've ever heard of any of these projects seeing daylight. I mean the whole Kickstarter craze started what.....2 years ago or something like that? A year and a half at least. So where are all these games that people are...

    EA upset with Nintendo for not blocking used games? Possible pressure from EA for Sony to follow?

    in Gaming Discussion on 22 May 2013

    cyberninja45 said: Yes another EA vs Nintendo thread. Could this be the reason for the lack of support from EA for the wiiU. They were upset with nintendo for not blocking used games in some sort of form. Does this mean we will see some sort of feature like this also on the PS4? Its likely that they can be putting pressure on Sony to implement some feature like this on the PS4. What are...

    Does the religious myth benefit modern society or not?

    in Politics Discussion on 06 May 2013

    Atheism is as much as belief as Catholicism. We all have beliefs and to some extent the basis for belief is genetic. Also, I believe most atheists are atheists because they believe it's a sign of being intellectual. Atheists believe they're enlightened by science but science doesn't . have anything to do with the existence of God....

    Is $500 too much?

    in Sales Discussion on 09 April 2013

    It's not at all. The first batch will sell out regardless of the price. Is the price sustainable? Well no, that's why they introduce price cuts. They'll try to lure people in with big budget titles for as long as they can but eventually the price will go down. Unfortunately it's not affordable for everyone, but it's affordable for enough people to make the price justifiable. ...

    Can anyone explain to me why people are obsessed with how the PS4 looks like?

    Is Sony on a downward spiral?

    in Sony Discussion on 12 February 2013

    I was a huge fan of SONY, I had the PS2, PS3, PSP GO and PS VITA. Regardless of whether I liked their gaming devices, the company as a whole has been struggling for a long time. Every aspect of their business struggles to keep pace with the innovations in the industry and their have a terrible corporate culture. Did you know that SONY had the opportunity to partner with Apple for Itunes? They...

Regardless of the facts, racism and sexism is wrong because it invokes the feeling of being treated unfairly.

    Are we getting more stupid?

    in General Discussion on 31 January 2013

    If you take a look at our IQ scores, technically we're all getting smarter. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flynn_effect I think the truth is even smart people make dumb mistakes, and that people on average aren't very smart to begin with. We're all human, get over it. ...
