  1. I wish I had something significant to contribute, now that this idea has come along. I really like it. Let's see... -DVI-to-VGA Adapter. -2-Molex-to-PCI Adapter -Crossfire Bridge -CoolerMaster Cavalier Case -120mm Fan Oh, look at that. I do have things to contribute, after all!
  2. You're misinterpreting it completely. Those who want the government healthcare, you pay a tax. If you already have insurance, then you don't pay any more or any less. Ta-da. You're being paranoid without any proof. That's fact.
  3. I'd also like to mention to people who think you have to pay extra taxes on this bill, that's not at all the case. If you don't have healthcare, you have to pay a tax. If you already have healthcare, then you don't have to pay a dime more than what you are.

  4. To The Infamous LoArmistead: This morning I was awakened by my alarm clock powered by electricity generated by the public power monopoly regulated by the US Department of Energy. I then took a shower in the clean water provided by the Municipal Water Utility. After that, I turned on the TV to one of the FCC regulated channels to see what the National Weather Service of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration determined the weather was going to be like using satellites designed, built and launched by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. I watched this while eating my breakfast of US Department-inspected goods and taking the drugs which have been determined as safe by the Food and Drug Administration. At the appropriate time as regulated by the US Congress and kept accurate by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the US Naval Observatory, I get into my National Highway Traffic Safety Administration-approved automobile and set out to work on the roads built by the local, state and federal Departments of Transportation, possibly stopping to purchase additional fuel of a quality level determined by the Environment Protection Agency, using legal tender issued by the Federal Reserve bank. On the way out the door, I deposited any mail I had to be sent out via the US Postal Service. After work, I drive my NHTSA car back home on the DOT roads, to my home which has not burned down in my absence because of the state and local building codes and fire marshal's inspection, and which has not been plundered of all it's valuables thanks to the local police department. I, then log onto OverclockersClub to complain about how the socialist medicine is bad because the government can't do anything right. Why are you being asked to pay just a little bit for healthcare in our country? Because we need it. Not because you, personally, need it. You think people who grow their own food in their gardens complain about paying Federal taxes to support our FDA? Here's what bugs me. I've been asked to stay nice, so I'll be sure to do so. But I will not hesitate to be blunt. You're a hypocrite. Plain and simple. By definition, you are a hypocrite. And people like you need to get over it. Because it's counter-productive. I lived in a household without a television for a few years. No one complained about paying the FCC. We never listened to the radio, either. And yet when it comes to the most IMPORTANT thing, our health, people complain as much as they want and call it socialist tyranny. The fact of the matter is, you haven't the slightest clue as to what socialist tyranny is and you're so lucky for that. But when you go about claiming that's what we are, you sure do look naive, shallow and ungrateful. You cannot take care of yourself without the government as it is, socialist or not. So stop complaining. "Who appeals to the law against his fellow man is either a fool, or a coward. Whoever cannot take care of himself without that law... is both." That's the code of honor as a human being in a government regulated lifestyle. It's called Omerta. A very well-known philosophical code, I happen to agree with whole-heartedly. Just suck it up and do something to help a society of struggling people. I work, my mother works. Yet when I got into a vehicular accident, I died for two minutes... am now subjected to a 40% titanium skull and a whole lot more details that I could go into, but won't. It was a complete accident. It was not irresponsibility in any way whatsoever. But... if I had not been SO fortunate as to have healthcare right now? I would have died. Either that, or we'd be on the streets because of the inability to pay the medical bills. And even then, we were forced to move from one house, to a pretty awful one I'm sitting in now. So again, you have no clue whatsoever as to what you're talking about. You really don't. This is not about giving people the impression that they don't have to work for the money to get healthcare, this is about too much expense that most people with families cannot keep up with. Or people with less of a family, like my situation. Any other way you see it is pretty delusional. Just some perspective... friend. Now, if you'll excuse me -- I'm going to go outside to the cold weather that I refuse to complain about, regardless of the fact that I was hoping it would be sunny today. Because at least I'm alive and I have friends who wanna spend time with me. Complain all you want. But you're missing what matters. Socialism? Ha. You grew up in a socialist tyranny if that's what defines socialism to you. Good day.
  5. You make a lot more assumptions than the truth can keep up with. Lemme elaborate. 1. But we'll have saved enough money to make up for it. 2. I wasn't skewing the facts at all, you supercool dude . I was speaking in context of the reform, not a hypothetical one. Thus, I actually MEANT the currently relevant reform. Doctors favor it. 3. Because it's insipid and you've demonstrated that you are. People were at fault for the crash of the economy. Spending more money then they had and then expecting people to bail them out. I at least thought you'd understand and agree to that. 4. Look up tyranny. ----A : oppressive power <every form of tyranny over the mind of man — Thomas Jefferson>; especially : oppressive power exerted by government <the tyranny of a police state> ----B : a government in which absolute power is vested in a single ruler; especially : one characteristic of an ancient Greek city-state b : the office, authority, and administration of a tyrant ----C : a rigorous condition imposed by some outside agency or force <living under the tyranny of the clock — Dixon Wecter> ----D : a tyrannical act <workers who had suffered tyrannies> None of which applies. And don't say it's A. We voted the congress in that let this pass. Point the finger at the people, not the government. Accept responsibility for your nation, that's patriotism. And saying it's C would be even more ridiculous. You might as well call all laws tyranny. You really have a warped definition. If you want tyranny, take a look at North Korea. They don't even have internet. And like you, they think we're tyrannic. 5. Subjective. 6. Don't undermine the facts and proof of them by calling them superficial names like, 'pretty'. It's a poor tactic used in debates by fools. Furthermore, you didn't read what I had to say about them very clearly. Which you shouldn't have had to do. Looking at the graphs carefully, you can see this reform is going to do us astronomical amounts of money-saving and more great things. 7. Because I'm 17, friend. 8. And as I stated, before, you make too many assumptions to be given credit for any intelligence -- albeit, misguided -- that you possess. I did not search any of this on Google. Nor did I find it necessary. I've had those images on my HDD for months. Modern politics is a hobby. I research. I don't assume. You could have looked up tyranny to see if I had been selective and in doing so, realized that I hadn't been selective. You could have looked more carefully at my points and realized your argument has more holes than old socks. You could have done your research about the money we're spending, and the money this reform (logically and indefinitely) saves. You could have looked up the surveys about the doctors I mentioned and found out it was about this bill, specifically. You could have. But you didn't. Now you're just arguing to argue because you think you're clever and that's a waste of my time. I hope you strongly reconsider your obvious and yet, self-oblivious tone of arrogance and realize that quoting people as ill-fated as you are doesn't make you look smarter. Just because you agree with people or people agree with you does not qualify for collective intelligence. i.e.: Glenn Beck has 3mil viewers every episode. Just means a small portion of the US is batshit crazy.
  6. Because in the end, it actually SAVES every single one of us great amounts of money. Take a look at the second graph I posted.
  7. To the republican Texan(LoArmistead) who's against 'tyranny' and thinks that he shouldn't have to help people in our country cause he 'doesn't wanna'. http://www.costofwar.com You really think the reform is going to end up costing us more than that? REALLY? Like, you honestly believe that? If there are 250 million people in the US, all of them pay this tax, it ends up being around 100 more for every person, if that. So 1,200 a year, at most. Per person. It would take us approximately 3 years to add up to as much money as we have spent on that lie of a war. And while it'll take less time for the healthcare reform to cost us more, it's also for a better cause and with better outcomes. My grandmother is a doctor and she favors healthcare. Countless surveys with people in the medical field agree that this reform is much needed. Someone like you is focusing on the wrong things, in my opinion. You blame the government but you won't leave, you say it's all the government's fault when we're a democracy through and through. We're the voters. Stop blaming the gov't. I bet you're one of those people who blamed the gov't for the economy, as well. Also, I think you're misinterpreting the word 'tyranny' and how to use it appropriately: dictatorship: a form of government in which the ruler is an absolute dictator (not restricted by a constitution or laws or opposition etc.) That's very far from what we are or what we're 'becoming', seeing as I'm sure you either think we are one or we're becoming one. Obama is not a dictator, nor will he ever be. We are binded by checks & balances, constitutional right and laws and frankly, for you to say that the reform is 'tyranny' really shows how clueless you are. And please don't be one of those theorists who say that the government is going behind our backs and they're slowly becoming a dictatorship. People like you have been saying that since the 70's and our resemblance to tyrannic nations has pretty much plateau'd. We're not becoming anything. If we were 'becoming' anything... I'd say a less successful nation as a whole. More money towards a war that's over and more people like our Dear Mr. Texan here who think they shouldn't have to help support the millions of people in this country who need it. It's arrogance, selfishness, self-entitlement and overall, it's pretty ludicrous. We have one of the worse systems in the entire world. Take a look: It's despicable. Makes me embarrassed to live here. Something else worth mentioning, how much of our GDP we're spending on heath. Clinton's reform process was nearly identical to Obama's. It's why they've been in cahoots this whole time. Clinton has been supporting Obama every way he can with ex-presidential power because their propositions are SO similar. Only difference is Obama has made it further with his than anyone else. So, with that knowledge... take a look at what we're spending and what it would have been with a nearly-identical plan. Clinton's(note:Identical to Obama's) plan would have cost us a large margin LESS than what we're spending! And you cannot argue with that. And unlike you, I'm displaying evidence and proof for my statements. I'm not just crapping out my rear every stupid idea that comes into my head. I'm 17 ffs, get a grip(still speaking to the Texan). What I've shown you here is only my opinions backed up pretty handily by proof. All I know for sure is that when a 17 year old makes more sense than an adult, something is seriously impaired with your judgment, as can be seen here. Last image(how US citizens see the country of the United States): In case you have not noticed, we SUCK and are in a desperate kind of need for reform. That being said, no. I'm not totally satisfied by the bill that passed congress. It started out as a kind of United Kingdom healthcare, in that it was universal and paid by national tax money. That was a fantastic idea. Now it has hardly anything to do with that. While I still think this is an improvement, it's like having the choice between a decent-looking girl and then a drop-dead gorgeous one. We basically cut the hair off of the gorgeous-looking one, shaved her eyebrows off and made her wear sweatpants all day and every day. We took something great and messed it up, basically. It's still a good idea, but it took too long to do too little in my honest and humble opinion. Last but not least, if you think it's unfair for you to pay for the health of our people, if you think THAT makes us a tyranny?... consider the following: *Image removed due to vulgar language* That shouldn't shock you. You have been paying for guns and bombs and various military and murderous practices since you've been asked to. Yet I bet, through a series of irrational mental gymnastics, you don't think that's tyranny at all. Except it's the same damn thing. For a drastically worse purpose. Please excuse the language in the photo.
  8. If I could fit that V1AX, I'd buy it
  9. But I won't pay more. So what difference will it make? Jw.
  10. So I know this is a graphics category, but frankly... that's a little limiting. Seeing as I know full well the artistic people here do more than just graphics and the description of the thread category simply mentions 'art' as the criteria, I figured I'd mix it up a bit. So I recorded this in an hour on a webcam microphone. And with riffs I wrote and practiced for only an hour before. Tell me what you think? http://www.box.net/shared/r2e8vbg20n
  11. This. Crysis has, without a doubt, the most versatile engine next to Source and Unreal. CryEngine 2 is under-appreciated because they advertised how it is cosmetically instead of technically. You can literally do ANYTHING with that engine. It's brilliant. People have made entire campaigns with the developer tools Crytek released. And yes, you can make the game look tons better and run slower or marginally better and run up to 20% better. I get 30FPS on Max Settings with my 8800GT 256MB using a custom config. And it looks better than the stock setting 'Very High.' I LOVED the gameplay for Warhead. But the original was a little slow-paced. Warhead was also short, though. It was a bit of a tradeoff. Either way, I adore the series. I've been an FPS person since I could use a mouse. I remember kicking butt at Duke Nukem' when I was like, 10. It's in mah bloooood. So of course I'm looking forward to Crysis 2. As well as the fact that since it's also coming out on consoles? There should be PLENTY more optimization on PC's this time around. Theoretically, it should run better than the original Crysis while looking a lot better as well. Yay for no compromise!
  12. Or a different perspective among similar taste... In Futurama when Planet Express was bought by Mom's Delivery Service and Fry was the co-owner with 50 percent shares and kept talking about integrity in the company, making the stocks lose value.
  13. I heard that the Hawk gets loud after 60 percent fan. I'll be overclocking hopefully to 950 core. So I might need a quiet one.
  14. Thank you for understanding. I hate using IE even for a second to get Firefox.
  15. Yeah.... I wouldn't trust that.
  16. Thank you! And I kind of figured as much, as well. Just the tried and true company. I think I'll be getting that one when I get this money, thanks guys
  17. I've looked at reviews and whatnot, but I wanna hear from personal experience and maybe some ownership of the cards themselves? Which company/model should I go for when getting a brand new 5770? I was thinking about the Sapphire Vapor-X.
  18. You've made it clear you're far too full of self-righteous assumptions to make a point against. I will, however, say that it IS the original disc. And yes, I know what piracy is, thank you. Now stop being a douche with your capital letters and oversized words. I don't know what's put you under the belief that I cannot read the standard 12 pixel font, but I assure you... I can quite well. So all in all, you're being immature, ignorant, silly and just because someone is clever enough to edit an installation package from .bin doesn't mean that they're some kind of AWFUL pirate. <--- See how obnoxious that is? And before you say I can't write to an unwritable disc, stop pestering me. I'm really tired of explaining what I shouldn't have to explain. If someone decides to buy my disc and they end up with anything but the original and verified MS disc, then it's their responsibility to turn me in. After I'd informed you of my knowing the rules, you really should have backed off. Because at this point, it's not your duty nor your responsibility or place to tell me about what I own and what I can or can't do with it... and especially whether or not it's illegal. You have not seen the disc. You have not seen ME. And you are basing your entire two posts on assumption without asking me like a gentleman. And that, is what makes you immature and frustrating to an unwarranted amount. You're preaching to the choir about piracy. And it makes you look stupid. Quitit.
