Russia has their own Truthers, apparently


That's Vladimir Zhirinovsky, leader of Liberal-Democratic Party of Russia (it's neither liberal nor democratic, BTW). Their political program includes the reinstatement of Russian Empire, widespread military conquest (his promise that 'Russian soldiers will wash their boots in the Indian Ocean' quickly became a meme) and sinking the entire North American continent with tectonic superweapons. Yes, really.

Oh, and did I mention that it's the third most popular political party in Russia? :(

Those doing reasonable or better progress in 5.2 normals will get the rep and valor that they need, plus they'll be getting 522 or better raid drops, so they won't need all the valor gear.
The pure LFR crowd will muddle along as they do.
But those that have the limitations on progress in normals but still care about moving forward are really going to want to get that 522 valor gear, and will need to hit the valor grind more since they'll be behind in raid drops.

On the other hand, the valor gear rewards are associated with the raid rep not the dailies rep, and the raid rep is gained from weekly boss kills and can be earned on any difficulty. So yes, there's still the need to get 1000 valor per week, but they aren't forced into dailies to unlock the gear.

Let's place bets on the outcomes!
1) long list of sites they shouldn't have visited
2) files downloaded from sites they shouldn't have visited
3) some sort of illegal material
4) just a tool

The fact people *still* get busted for looking up porn on work computers still boggles my mind.

8-10 years ago it boggled it slightly less. But now? Seriously?

I let my supervisor know about what happened. I personally don't want to escalate it, he was just upset and I didn't take it personally really.

As for any disciplinary actions against him, not my job -- all I did was take snapshots of his hard drive and submit it to the guy that handles security and forensics.

I could prolly have found something myself quite easily but I just wanted to do my job as fast as I could and not waste time trying to be a cybersleuth just to prove a point.

What amuses me is that I am known for having a short temper, but hurling insults at me is not one way to trigger it.

Tank in Seige of Niuzao Temple bitching about low DPS and how much they hate the instance dropping in the middle of the second trash pack.

amusement because DPS was low because he couldn't bother moving the packs out of the giant bubble that dropped damage by 90%, and once we got a tank that could (the very next one) we all started joking about our 'too low DPS'. Heck, no one even gave the healer who seemed to die nearly every pull a hard time - we all just blamed it on low DPS :P

Yep, saw that on the news - very impressive work with Police costumes, baklavas, assault weapons...

Well, terrifying would be more adequate. But the diamond industry in Belgium is pretty much 90% blood diamonds, so no wonder it attracts the seedy and the dangerous.

So the diamond cartel just releases some of the billions of diamonds they have in store rooms to make up for it or they pretend that this is a huge loss and price hike the remaining stock until their slow release brings the supply back up?
