Oh, I know -- doesn't mean I can't get frustrated by it.

The shrink guy actually said the kid was a victim of Affluenza, of being a rich white sheltered and spoiled kid. That shrink needs a halberd through the scrotum.

The biggest problem with Chrome is that it's a terrible memory hog. On my current MacPro (7 years old) running Chrome with 4+ tabs (or really even one) and WoW will basically freeze the system, while Firefox is slow but it works. Basicially it's the way Chrome creates separate rendering sessions for each tab, those quickly bring an older system to it's knees... (Part of the blame also lies with Adobe Flash/Shockwave that's built into Chrome and Safari. certain sites with lots of ads chew tons of memory).

Depending on the terms of the probation any minor offense could get him in jail for 20+ years, so not really a slap on the wrist.

Normally, anyone else killing 4 people would land 'em 20 years in jail, not probation...

If I could decide, any person murdering 4 people (but even just one) would get all his arms and legs cut and be left alone in the middle of a forest.

Shame I can't really decide about this.

Pretty sure it's manslaughter, not murder, as I'd bet it wasn't premeditated. Sure, that's a minor quibble that doesn't do anything to help the families of the victims, but in regards to the court ruling, makes a considerable difference.

The crime was the drunk driving, not the accident it caused. You'd look at how impaired his judgement was and whether he knowingly endangered people by getting in the car drunk.

There is definitely a whole lotta bullshit in the defense they used, but it's still more like reckless endangerment or homicidal negligence than murder.

Manslaughter is a much lower sentence than murder, some adults have got less than 3 years for it. Add in mitigating circumstances and his age and it isn't that surprising that he got committed to a psychological ward instead of prison.

Ugh... I hate my internet sometimes... waited 30 minutes for an LFR... middle of the Immerseus fight it starts lagging and kicking me off... I log back in fine the first time, then my internet just completely crashes... I reset the modem, nothing happens... eventually get it working and by the time I log back in, I'm already booted from the raid... now to wait in queue again... /sigh

Feels like a bit of a petty frustration, but still. The character model poses on armoury... Some of them are so bad! My human female paladin hides away behind her giant shield, and my warlock twists away so you can't see her shoulders, and who knows why the weapon isn't even included. Pet peeve! :lol:

I feel your pain. Same happened to me once, ended up with deserter debuff for good measure. What gives you a deserter debuff seems really random. I've had to go in the middle of raids and not gotten anything, as well as left when I'm the only one left in a group and I got bored of waiting, and then get the debuff for... Well, deserting myself I suppose.

You don't get Deserter if you are present for a boss kill.

It's a bit inconsistent. Occasionally I've left a LFR right after a ninjapull and I didn't get deserter (a handful times didn't even get the queue cooldown!)
Don't really know honestly.

Maybe it goes by whether the group gets a kill or the Determination buff.

So, I apparently missed out on the whole "jesus is white" fox news debacle this week, only just hearing of it today. Off handedly, I posted on FB that if you just apply some logic to it, it's pretty obvious, that if there were an earthly avatar of a supreme divine being born into that region, he would most assuredly not been a white person.

And then, thanks tot he comments the post received, I realized why it became such a topic.

Because there are some religious people who just defy logic. They can't understand it. They are fascinated by the mysticism of it, and it blinds them to the logic of it all.

that particular depiction of jesus comes from all the years of paintings where they made jesus a caucasian.

Then again, she's probably talking about Republican Jeesuz, not Jesus

It reminds me of a conversation I had recently with someone, about separation of church and state, and how this is a "christian" country, and "would I be ok with my money saying In Mohammed we trust?!"

I tried to explain their logical fallacies, and that it wouldn't say Mohammed, it would say Allah, and they just argued and argued and argued, because hey? What do I know. It's not like I was going to college to get a degree in world religion or anything.

A Follow-up on the whole Affluenza thing

http://breakingbrown.com/2013/12/rich-w ... ing-drunk/
http://www.yourblackworld.net/2013/12/u ... to-prison/

Same Judge (Jean Boyd)

Black teens, however, aren’t nearly as lucky when they come before the courts. Kuntrell Jackson, who is black, was 14 years old when he took part in a robbery that ended with the death of a store clerk. Even though Jackson was not the trigger man, he was tried as an adult sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Defense argument, from the official transcript:
Kuntrell Jackson was born in a household where there was
nothing but violence and guns and people shooting each
other. His grandmother shot his uncle. His mother shot
a neighbor. His brother shot someone. They were all
put to jail.

But, unlike an adult, these children don't
have the ability to escape. A child of 14 cannot leave
his criminogenic or violent environment. They have no
control over that. And because --

I guess the judge feels sorry for white kids with Affluenza, but no mercy for black kids with Brokeitis.

Well, there is a distinct difference between participating in a felony where someone gets killed, and driving drunk and killing someone.
