Why does Arby's always attract the weirdos in the neighborhood? Like seriously every time I go into Arby's a barefoot, sometimes shirtless, drunken man walks in. Which is something i rarely see at any other food joint.

And this is something I have observed in two different places 2000 miles apart.

This stuff is pretty common here in the south(USA). You can almost always expect to see a fat, drunk redneck babbling incoherent sentences while he waits for his food.

 

I want to know why Wal-mart attracts white trash people and weirdos. It seems like a regular supermarket, yet you see some strange people there. Especially at night, when the "true" rednecks make the drive from the countryside to do their shopping.

I'm not sure if the US Amazon ships the PS4 to SA, but the UK Amazon does. As far as I know it's about R500 cheaper.

I think it's better and safer to just buy a PS4 locally though.


Its kinda expensive but I guess its better to buy it here. I'll probably buy it christmas time though. Hopefully it'll be less than R6000 that time.

 

The reason Amazon.co.uk will ship it to SA and not Amazon.com is due to the voltage as SA and UK are both 220v-240v and the US is 110v-120v, just chucking a 2c in for future reference if you looking to buy.

I'm not exactly a computer specialist when it comes to stuff like that, but one thing has really made me confused.

 

So I played EFLC, etc, etc. Decided to play in windowed mode (since GFX settings can be higher without lagging like on full screen) Set the Texture Resolution to High and played without lags. Just the random city parts disappearing occured that doesnt bother me that much.

 

So then after doing the first mission I decided to go full retard and max out EVERYTHING. The game lags heavily but one thing is really confusing me. I wanted to take a screenshot (print screen button) and when backing out the game (it was still on), there is no lag at all when doing stuff on computer. RAM and CPU usage are also ridiculously low even when the game is still on.

 

Screenies of my ridiculously low memory space and ridiculously high game quality.

Spoiler

 

Spoiler

 

EDIT: The game is perfectly playable but it runs at 5fps (still playable for me) and starting missions is impossible.

 

So is my non-existant graphics card trolling me by setting ridiculously low dedicated memory or is it some built-in feature of games to lag just so they want?

 

And another question, is it possible to increase dedicated video memory?

If I or anyone else clicks and views an Embedded Youtube video posted somewhere, say here on the forum. Does it count towards a view on that video on the Youtube website?

 

Is that how Embedded works?

Yes if you use youtube's embedded player. If you use an unofficial player that grabs the video from youtube and plays it, then it usually doesn't count. Autoplayed videos don't count either according to this google groups thread, the user has to actually start the video themselves for the view to count. So if you were to watch a random video on synchtube or something like that it wouldn't count the view.

Well, I'd like to talk about it. So is the egg always supposed to be masculine? I've seen two pictures like this with the same reaction from both characters. What kind of situation could you have a hen in the opposite role or is that just going against nature?

The situation where the hen is a rooster. I thought you knew about animals and stuff, SHAME ON YOU.

You could, but then would it be a rooster and a hen or a rooster and an egg? Roosters are unnecessary in this whole picture.

No I mean a hen is a female chicken forcing the egg to take a male role, I was being snarky. Unfortunately I have not put in the time to consider the philosophical implications or a cartoon regarding a joke based on a clichéd phrase.

 

Sorry that I couldn't help answer your question.

How can we be sure it's not a cross dressing rooster?

We can, but let's not go there yet. I'd really like to discuss why hens would always have to be the unsatisfied characters in this comic while eggs would get to have a cigarette or something.

I'd really like you to stop spamming up the question topic with inane sh*t. The difference is I can make sure you stop spamming up the question topic with inane sh*t, so your move.

I take it you have Kinect connected to it in some way? If so, then it is always kind of in "ON" mode and can be turned on fully just by saying "Xbox ON" and the Kinect will turn it on. I don't have an Xbox One, but I'm sure there's a way to turn it off somewhere in settings.

Wow, that is weird.

 

In the power setting there is an option to turn off "Xbox on" voice command.  Give that a try - maybe it isn't the kinect and you are just getting a weird IR signal from a UFO or something.

Depends how you define the internet. The current entity with which we are familiar will probably change fundamentally in the near-mid future; say 10-15 years. The idea of a vast network of individual computer systems communicating with each other directly over a set of specific protocols? Not likely.

Why don't people like using the sunroofs in their cars? I'd personally have it uncovered all of the time, I love the extra sunlight and views it offers.

Having one reduces the head room in already low overhead cars.

When I had them open there was often a vacuuming effect drawing dust and grit up and out through it. This happened in both in my Dauphine, and Ninety-Eight Regency automobiles.

I like sunroofs, but they reduced the amount of headroom I get.(By a lot, I have to lower the backrest to even be to see out of the car) Also they aren't worth the extra dough when getting a new car.

I think he means "why not use it if you already have it". I don't know either, I've never had a car of my own but if I did I think I'd love a sunroof. It's the same as having the windows open, I like it and it can be very nice but no one else I ever drive with likes that either. >.<
