    The Japanese government has privately concluded that the Olympics will be cancelled because of the coronavirus

    Why can't they implement a specific vaccination program for the athletes and the country missions and accept that it's going to be less spectators?

    So can SoSH talk about Deflategate again?

    Guys, motivated reasoning -wanting to believe what you want to believe and finding reasons to back it up- existed as long as humans existed. Nothing was invented because of Deflategate. And I think I ve said it before. When I see millions of people earnestly believe something that I think it's...

    Strange bluetoth problem

    Motherfucker, motherfucker, MOTHERFUCKER! It only took me 4 hours today in addition to all the hours I spent in the past couple of weeks, but I fixed the damn thing. Microsoft must have done something to screw bluetooth devices on Win 7, because apparently when you connect the bluetooth mouce...

    Building a new mid-level gaming PC

    Microsoft flight simulator came out only a few months ago and it's pretty demanding game. If you want to run it, you probably need to build a new pc.

    James Harden to Brooklyn

    After that trade, they should change their name to Brooklyn Misfits. Or maybe the Brooklyn Dysfunctionals. Or even to Brooklyn Locker Room Poison. Or why not all? The Brooklyn Grand Assembly of Dysfunctional Misfit Locker Room Poison.

    Strange bluetoth problem

    Anywho, still haven't found a solution. Per usual, it's going to be the simplest thing or the most out of the blue problem ever.

    Strange bluetoth problem

    Bluetooth does suck and my preference is for RF mice. That's what my primary mouse is. The bluetooth mouse is for when I am sitting at the couch since I have my desktop connected to my TV. The issue there is less the frequency or the range - though range obviously is big, but whether the mouse...

    Building a new mid-level gaming PC

    If you don't like the NXZT H500 (now H510) which is as boxy as they come, then probably you have an issue with cases with windows. Unfortunately, over the past 10 years, there's been a trend towards adding windows in cases in order to showcase the hardware inside, oftentimes with tons of RGB...

    Strange bluetoth problem

    My main problem with Windows 10 -besides the bloatware, the spyware and the couple of new things I need to learn -is that the old version of a program I am using has a feature which is vital for me, which the Win 10 version does not have. I checked which programs were installed or updated last...

    Strange bluetoth problem

    It's a windows 7 desktop and a win 10 laptop. Old mouse worked for 4 years on win 7 desktop until a week ago. It's actually working fine on win 10 laptop as well. My guess it's the OS as well, but nothing seems to have changed to warrant this.

    Strange bluetoth problem

    I am stumped. 1. I am on Windows 7. For years I have had a Microsoft bluetooth mouse that I had it paired with a bluetooth dongle. It worked fine. About a week a ago, it stopped working. I tried everything to pair it again with bluetooth, no go. 2. I buy a new mouse, it arrives today. I try...

    The Existential Extension Crisis - Will Giannis Stay in Milwaukee?

    Obviously it won't. But it's a matter of degrees. if a superstar has to choose between offers whose differences are marginal, then non monetary criteria, like the city, the weather, the guys he teams up will play an outsized role. But if the small market team's offer is 1.5x or 2x bigger, then...

    The Existential Extension Crisis - Will Giannis Stay in Milwaukee?

    The max contract isn't there to enable super teams. It's there because the player union demands it so that the worst players will get better contracts. I think the notion that people want super teams is post facto justification. I think people would enjoy parity and competitive series...
