2021.09.28 16:04 bigwetpoops Stand-up Comedy

Alright, so I wouldn't exactly call myself a socialist per se because I don't know enough about it to go throwing my hat so definitively into the ring or. But lets just say that if it was time to shit or get off the pot, I know pretty well where I stand. Anyways, I'm here because I've been thinking a bit about stand-up comedy lately and it's kind of dawning on me how garbage a lot of it has always been, but I'm also noticing a trend of infiltration by right-wing political interests.
Norm Macdonald died recently, and say what you will about some of the things he's said, the guy was sharp. But now I'm wondering if he was always such a massive piece of shit and I was just misinterpreting his jokes, or if it's just a right-wing takeover of his image happening. After I noticed this, it had me thinking about how all these other comics cry about "cancel culture" all the time. I wonder if they have people whispering in their ear about it (so to speak), encouraging them to whine about it. Or is the pushback against accountability really that...pervasive? I guess I kind of don't get it. I mean, Norm did come out and defend Louie C.K. cornering people and making them watch him beat off, so obviously everything wasn't 100% above board, but I give comedians a little more leeway when it comes to saying offensive stuff because I think it can be important to have people in our society who we give more permission to push boundaries. It can be a good way to find humor in pain, but it's also important that it's done knowingly and carefully I suppose. I digress.
There's a YouTube channel called "I'm not Norm" that has compilations of Norm Macdonald's stand-up and media appearances. If you watch their clips closely, you can see that they're all edited to end on something Norm says that's seemingly racist, sexist, or in some way bigoted. A lot of it seems out of context to me, or intentionally edited to make it seem like he's supporting the position that he's making fun of or stating ironically or sarcastically. For example, his "Hitler was a pretty bad guy" joke I always took to be pointing out that we turned Hitler into a cartoon villain while he was still alive instead of staying grounded and seeing the humanity there and the fact that it could easily happen again. Like how we might talk about modern leaders that are just objectively shit people as "oh yeah I hear he's not a nice guy." I don't know, but if nothing else just the absurdity of understating such an evil person can make you giggle, you know? But when you watch those videos, the way they're edited you can come away feeling like maybe Norm actually liked Hitler. They focus on his beef with Hillary Clinton. They focus on him calling things "r******d." Stuff like that.
And then the channel has links to a bunch of corny merch with Star Wars themes and stuff like that. So these fascists are co-opting Norm Macdonald's image to fundraise. And when I went to Norm Macdonald's subreddit, it seems like it's completely taken over by right-wind trolls. I've been kind of getting turned off stand-up over the last few years with some events, and then the "cancel culture" crying lately, but this seems different. Yeah, stand-up comics have always been kind of fucked up people, but outright fascists? What the fuck is going on? Has anyone else noticed this kind of thing elsewhere? Honestly, it kind of scares me. Like, they're raising money EVERYWHERE. They're working their way into every little opening they can find. It's making people so uptight, because the slightest opening to right-wing bigotry will be filled somewhere. What the hell is this??

2021.09.28 16:04 blackstrips The gameplay isn't perfect but the FIFA community, especially the streamers, are responsible for ruining the game experience

Yes, the gameplay isn't perfect. There's tons of flaws that you name and I agree that EA needs to fix them but I just played 5 games against one of my mates and it was arguably 100x better experience. No constant through balls, no constant press everywhere on the pitch, just a proper football game as most of fans would love the game to be.
We can deny the fact that the FIFA community wants to win and get the rewards in the easiest way possible. As streamers spend hours on the game and have a reach, the moment they figure out a way to abuse the game mechanics they preach and everyone hops on board.
The community chooses to play the game a certain way but I've played against many who wanted to have fun and not just exploit the mechanics the first possible moment.
Now I want to believe a majority of the community doesn't actually want this but all it needs is your opponent to do it and you automatically get sucked into it. And for a few times, you become one of them and the cycle continues.
I don't know how others feel about it and we can blame EA all we want, they deserve it too. But eventually, it's you, me and the community that decides what aspects of the game we want to use and what we don't.
TLDR: The streamers find ways to abuse the mechanics, share it and the FIFA community uses it, diminishing the overall experience for majority of the players.

2021.09.28 16:04 Batmoon101_ How to break 1T damage?

I can never seem to break into 1T damage. Best I got was with arc warden on 900g dmg. When I play with my friends they seem to break 5t dmg with any hero with ease (and r couriers same as mine). Idk what I'm doing wrong.
My best run was with AW and the items i bought were 1. sealed ring 2. disaster in shadow 3. great sage bar 4. windwaker 5. cloak of carnage 6. witch blade +eaten aghs aeon disk and moon shard.
My supports were kotl, cm and disruptor which almost had the same items. I also use bloodthorns on all of my towers What am i doing wrong?

2021.09.28 16:04 TheDravic Laser Tag was the best thing about Splitgate after I discovered it and it's gone now...

It makes me not want to finish battle pass now, I don't need skins if I can't play the game mode I like the most (at any given moment I could change it, too, which is what was so refreshing - for example Split Ball was bonkers fun too).
I just have one question, why would you do that? You just took away game modes from people who still played your game daily.

2021.09.28 16:04 Boomtownfalls Tech support questions

So a friend of mine in my gaming clan is having issues with the game and Nintendo themselves seemed to be able to offer no solutions. I’ll include below his message to me describing the issue and anything else I can tell you that will help. I just wanna avoid him returning the game and moving on to something else if I can.
He’s playing paladin, and we were able to put some time in together day one after the server fix was made. Here’s his issue:
“Diablo 2 will repeatedly crash after logging on with an online character. Only happens with online characters and only with this game. No error code is given unless you look under “health and safety” in the main “settings” page on the main hub (displays code 2110-2003). The crash is inevitable but it’s hastened when going to a waypoint or opening the stash box.
The error code indicates it’s a connection issue but the game has been re installed twice, the router reset and the switch reset. It should also be noted this took place in multiple households with the same system.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks in advance and apologies if this issue has been posted and resolved already. Just trying to help a friend.
