Concerning the assholes who are the topic in that video...

My open letter to everyone in internet land:

First of all... I'M WHITE.

YOU BLACK LIVES MATTERS FUCKERS ARE BEING RACIST. These militant BLM black people want to be racially superior to whites. That's called racism. That's what they ultimately want. Grow some fucking testicles and call it what it is and live AND DIE by the shit you believe in.

Why is no one confronting them and asking them point blank about that shit?

Stop being fucking pussies, whites.

I think many of us are convinced that opinions are fairly neck and neck about all this protesting shit. I don't really think so. I think people have eyes. They see it for what it is. But too many people are too scared to risk their jobs or public ostracism to speak out and say what they really feel.

And all you lousy chickenshit motherfuckers are gonna the be the first ones they line up and execute.  :thumbsup: Good for them. Good for all of us. Get you weak wishy-washy little pussies out of the gene pool.

The gall of this prosecutor, re-litigating the case, unable to find the racism he's looking for, step up the podium and instead of presenting the facts, claim the incident somehow "exposed" racism in the system anyway.

If I was King of the USA, I'd hold the largest press conference ever and tell everyone "Thought experiment. How many people remember Levar Jones? [very small show of hands] Levar Jones was an innocent black man that was shot by a white police officer in SC after being instructed to get his license and slowly reaching for his wallet. Jones was polite and cooperative. Where is the outrage? There was very little outrage because of everyone in America agreed what happened was wrong. What we see outrage over are the stories that the media wishes to go viral, and they choose the controversial ones. The Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown cases divided this country more than ever before, and the flames of division were fan vigorously by then President Obama. Both of those cases were a complete LIE."

Then I'd present the facts similarly to how Kayleigh McEnany regularly calls out the media, and show a poster board of several unbiased news sights amd articles as well as read out a few headlines and facts while stating "I'm just going over these now because many will likely be deleted very soon". I'd really try to drive home the fact that the media is trying to divide the people and that everyone's anger regarding the TM/MB cases is misguided and unwarranted. And I'd directly ask everyone "where do you think we'd be as a nation of the facts of these cases were presented in a timely manner?" There would be no BLM, no deaths due to race riots, antifa would be much smaller, etc.

I realize Levar Jones didn't die, so there is a better example out there, but you get the point. No one remembers the (VERY FEW) innocent unarmed blacks that die at the hands of police. But we all know the names of black criminals that resist and attack police and get killed. And THAT is what we burn cities down for?

Someone needs to drive this home to the American people like a dedicated parent drives home addition and subtraction to a 5 year old. I'd reassure them that police brutality is still a problem but it is both a lot smaller than we're being told, and more importantly, it is one that we must all tackle as one nation united.

There's a way this could be done. Trump could do it right now if he had the balls. But of course he won't.

Did you guys google each of those names to confirm everything? I googled a few, and one took place back in 2014 or 2015 (the guy from Virginia). I guess I don't have the patience to do them all.

I googled a few, and one took place back in 2014 or 2015 (the guy from Virginia).

Noticed the same just scanning over the list, as a few items include the year. (Tim Nolan, 2018; Ralph Shortey, 2017; and Anthony Weiner was on there as well.)

So it was unclear what the connection between the list was intended to be with Ghislane Maxwell, unless the claim is that all of these names were also on her list. (But either way, it certainly fails the criteria for "here's what happened yesterday".)

I didn't. It's why I said apparently  ;)

On my phone I can't highlight text in Facebook to copy and paste. Figured someone else could shed some light on it.

Shoutbox isn't the place for rehashing this. Here's the thread about DM server spawn farthest from 2006/2007:

Punk_FAS

It's not ideal for 1v1 situations, but that's what the DM server is supposed to cater to. Also, there are 7 other maps besides DM4 (actually 8 for the automatic mymap map between dm8 and dm1). I think there are more positives than negatives.

Punk_FAS

August 03, 2020, 11:20:06 AM
It happens to better players too. I know I've been in first, or second place, only to die and spawn right next to the other leading player multiple times in a row, and having to dodge rockets in a narrow corridor without any weapons myself (other than blaster).

It's not the best for 1v1 situation

Punk_FAS

August 03, 2020, 11:17:56 AM
I saw a clearly-new player earlier, and it spawned him like 3 or 4 times in a row right next to a better player. Instant death each time they spawned. I imagine that can be discouraging and frustrating, particularly when someone is trying to get a handle on the game. Spawn farthest would avoid this.

Might be interesting to code a hybrid spawn function that doesn't focus on "farthest" so much as avoiding the few most congested spawn points?
