I can play most games at 1080p and even though my PC is 10 years old it runs pretty well and I haven't had any issues. You can see the message I get from the PC Health check below

My Surface pro laptop is much slower and updated to Windows 11. I'm guessing just because it's newer.

My gaming PC has 8GB of RAM and a Geforce GTX 1070

I don't really see any major need for a new PC just to get the "official" ok for the upgrade to Windows 11. If it's dangerous or a problem I also don't need to upgrade. It's just kind of strange having a Windows 11 on my work laptop and not my gaming computer.

This is a good example of how the right alienates moderates, @Maxpowers_32.

Here you had a story about something that me, a left-leaning moderate finds preposterous (like you do, I imagine) and then you go and ruin that common ground by going scorched-earth with the following:

@Maxpowers_32 said:

...

Are students better off learning CRT, how to organize to riot for BLM, how to fight oppressive holidays like the 4th of July and Columbus Day or how to do basic math and reading? What is the position of most Democrats?

Next time quit while you're ahead so we can have an actual discussion instead of going full-nutjob.

What exactly did I say that would prevent you from having an actual discussion? What was full-nutjob in my question? Everything I listed is what Democrats have said.

For example, the teacher union president said about kids not being in school:

Our kids didn’t lose anything. It’s OK that our babies may not have learned all their times tables. They learned resilience. They learned survival. They learned critical-thinking skills. They know the difference between a riot and a protest. They know the wordsinsurrectionandcoup.

https://www.lamag.com/citythinkblog/cecily-myart-cruz-teachers-union/

The 1619 project and CRT is also being taught full force in schools and schools are tearing down statues of people like Lincoln and protesting 4th of July and Columbus Day as racist.

It all fits in with the same issue which is education and what is being taught in schools. Maybe you're right I should have just stuck with this particular issue.

Do you agree with the policy the governor just passed? Is it good for students to be told that due to their background they're not expected to learn math and english to the same standards as other kids. Is it good to have kids graduating who can't do math and reading?

@Maxpowers_32: That is the job of the police. Not vigilantes.

I thought calling the police if someone is breaking into your home comes from a place of privilege and is racist.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WHkPfD9qy2g

Democrats/media/Biden supporters were saying to defund the police and protecting property and yourself from BLM was racist

The police and fire department was not responding to the destruction caused by the Biden supporters.

This young man decided to go and help his neighbors whose lives were being ruined. If the BLM/Biden supporters are peaceful how is that looking for trouble? Do you think the communist and pedophile Biden supporters should have been there?

@Maxpowers_32: He went there looking for trouble and broke some laws doing so. But the right has shown us laws don't apply to them so I'm not surprised you are an apologist.

Did the rioters go there looking for trouble or to try and improve the community?

I'm confused. Are the Biden supporters there peaceful, kind people or people who will attack someone putting out fires and offering first aid?

Do you think the fact that Kyle played Call of Duty means he is a violent person?

What laws did he break? How exactly does the right show the laws doesn't apply to them? Are they getting paid $450k up to $1M per family to break federal law or pushing bans on indoor dining without masks and then going to fancy restaurants and dinner parties without a mask?

@LJS9502_basic:

How dare he look at his neighborhood being burned to the ground by "fiery by mostly peaceful protestors" and people's homes and businesses destroyed which destorys their life work and decide he wants to go and put out fires and offer first aid to people affected by the Biden supporters laying waste to the town.

Do you think he should have allowed the democratic/Biden supporters to kill him like they did to the other Trump supporter?

https://nypost.com/2021/01/30/how-a-portland-radical-murdered-a-trump-supporter/

What's really bad is he played these games called "first person shooters". Anyone who plays a game where you go around with a gun shooting people or monsters must be a horrible person and deserves to go to jail without any evidence, right?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n68nIjW7rVU

Hope I never get questioned about how when I was little I'd simulate jumping on turtles and kicking their shells into other other animals.

Do you think Kyle should be singing a song like this from prison?

https://news.yahoo.com/oregon-governor-signs-bill-ending-154100667.html?soc_src=social-sh&soc_trk=tw&tsrc=twtr

Naturally this comes from a Democrat who thinks that basic prociency standards are racist. Kind of like having a lifeguard be able to swim.

Boyle said the new standards for graduation would aid Oregon's "Black, Latino, Latinx, Indigenous, Asian, Pacific Islander, Tribal, and students of color."

This seems to go perfectly with the "lower your expectations" coming from the Biden administration

Wonder if the Democratic party will add removing basic proficiency requirement from all professions to their official platform to combat the racism that comes from having people display basic competence.

Is saying that Black, Latino, Latinx, Indigenous, Asian, Pacific Islander, Tribal, and students of color can't do basic math and reading racist or not? If you're a company looking to hire people in engineering, science or a job that requires careful reading like a lawyer does the "benefit of diversity" outweight the lack of basic competence that the democratic governor is saying people lack?

Does she believe that people of certain backgrounds are incapable of learning reading and math?

Are students better off learning CRT, how to organize to riot for BLM, how to fight oppressive holidays like the 4th of July and Columbus Day or how to do basic math and reading? What is the position of most Democrats?

@Maxpowers_32: I'm always a SP gamer & MP second which is why I'm primarily a PC gamer. Nothing against consoles, they're good for what their worth to the buyer, it just doesn't give me the tools I need to making my gaming life easier.

That makes a lot of sense. I'm primarily a SP gamer and love my PC games. I also got the Switch though for Zelda, Mario and for playing on the TV as well as multiplayer games like Starcraft.

@girlusocrazy said:

Aw you gotta connect the PC to the TV though. You can get long cables for cheap.

I would except my PC is in a different room! I played the Trine demo on PC and really love the look of it. Maybe someday I'll get a gaming laptop or that steam deck so I can connect a cable directly to the TV. It's just I don't travel that much and already have the Switch for gaming when I'm traveling

I also experienced the "War on Christmas" first hand when my office Christmas party was turned into a "holiday" party and I saw Christmas decorations removed and people saying "happy holidays" instead of Merry Christmas.

ROFL WHAT!? Oh man really hard hitting topic worth worrying about 🤣 The fact the above situation even remotely bothered you says it all. Compare this to climate change or covid which the right were completely and utterly wrong about. Like really lol.

You see why people laughed at the War on Christmas right? It's was an absolute and total nothing burger. Like this CRT nonsense.

You literally just proved my point that it barely exists.

The best you and silent can find are youtube, twitter, and op-eds. Scrounging your hardest to only find less than 1% of schools teaching things slightly similar (but far off) from CRT and from flimsy as shit sources. And even then, most of that is not actual K-12 CRT classes. That proves this is fake outrage.

Tell me what % of K-12 schools currently teach CRT. Find a verified link with a confirmed list.

@zaryia: BTW. I'm very pro vaccine for people with weakened immune systems and others who are concerned about the virus or have additional risk factors, but think it is a personal choice between you and your doctor.

Most doctors say take the vaccine. 🤣 The anti-vaxxers (mostly right wing) are being nutjobs.

That's a FAR FAR worse problem than less than .1% of schools teaching something slightly similar to CRT (kinda maybe lol). It puts into perspective how much of a nothing burger this all is.

LOL! You're the one who brought up the war on Christmas. I didn't say it compared at all to COVID or any of the incompetent actions the senile old man or the democratic party has taken in the past 10+ years. I actually agree with you that it's a big nothing burger compared to have extreme the liberals have become since then.

You think the Virginia Department of Education website is from Twitter or an op-ed? I literally put a link to their website in addition to screenshots from them and you think it's just someone's opinion?

Are you capable of looking at what I sent or does it just go as "info that's not from the DNC/CNN/MSNBC. Must ignore"?

Kind of like the segregated graduations, ignoring rape during pride week, calling everyone and everything racist, etc. Again, was the news lying? Was the mother lying about her daughter feeling ashamed for the color of her skin?

You said CRT wasn't being taught. Now you're saying it isn't being taught enough? I'm a guy with a full time job who is on a gaming forum. I'm not going to do your homework for you and go through the whole curriculum in Virginia. It's on their official website and parents who listen and talk to their kids say it's being taught and there is money being spent by the schools on CRT material. Please tell me how you know more about what is being taught in schools than the kids and parents going to those schools.

You're just blindly listening to the journalistic ethics of Joy Reid? By the way did she ever figure out who posted those homophobic posts on her account? Oh right. She lied about her account being hacked and she posted them.

You don't think that teaching kids they are evil and factually wrong information to hate themselves, their relatives, and their country is a problem? Where does changing the name of universities named after founding fathers or defunding the police list on your list of emergencies? How about banning TV shows and movies that don't conform to the liberal agenda?

Are you one of the liberals Bill Maher was talking about who thinks that over 50% of the people who get COVID or hospitalized? If you're morbidly obese with heart disease and over 65 yes COVID is a big problem. If you're 25 and in perfect health it's not so much of a problem.

Can liberals even say that women turned on them or do they have to say individuals with a uterus or some newspeak like that? These days Ginsburg is too right wing for you using "hate speech" like talking about women and not the "LGNQYADSYVADUSFG+&R^#32af" community.

You should also allow doctors to speak about what works and doesn't work, side effects and question the origin of the virus without having people remove your posts.

I also experienced the "War on Christmas" first hand when my office Christmas party was turned into a "holiday" party and I saw Christmas decorations removed and people saying "happy holidays" instead of Merry Christmas.

I once went to a Christmas show and the bus driver said "enjoy the holiday show" and everyone yelled out "Christmas!". I also remember commercials on TV where the father gave his son a present and said "happy holidays" and numerous retailers refusing to use the word Christmas.

Again, MSNBC says it isn't real so it must not be real to liberals. If MSNBC said the emperor has magnificent clothes on when the rest of us see he's not wearing any you'd fact check it saying that it's true he has great clothes and everyone else is a conspiracy theorist.

Not saying Christmas doesnt mean that anyone wants to erase christmas.

There are a TON of holidays celebrated at around Christmas. So people just say Happy Holidays as a catch all for whatever season you celebrate, whether it is Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa or something else. There are a TON of celebrations going on at this time.

War on Christmas is still a dumb conspiracy theory.

What do you think it means? No one is alleging that the government is stopping individuals from celebrating Christmas in their homes (don't give the liberals any ideas though!)

It means that places that used to have Christmas events and talk about Christmas are being silenced from celebrating them. Including in schools where there used to be Christmas plays and songs and there are lawsuits banning them. Also teachers sending out memos to be more inclusive and not allowing kids to hand out candy canes or even wear red and green. There are also schools that banned kids from seeing "A Christmas Carol" and some people said it was a hate crime getting a flyer for a Christmas concert.

People suing to ban Christmas displays and retailers not using the word Christmas that proudly used to do it because some stick in the mud complained.

Christmas is the ONLY recognized federal holiday and the reason for having things closed on December 25th. It is also the only one that is celebrated on December 25th. So saying "Get your holiday shopping done before the holidays are over on December 26th" is not accurate. Having an "after holiday sale" that starts December 26 is also not accurate. Why did stores and everyone say Christmas until the last decade or so? What changed?

That's the War on Christmas.

It's not a conspiracy theory.

For me it was playing "Detroit Become Human", which turned into "housekeeper simulator". I played the demo where you were a hostage negotiator and I thought it would have an interesting story, but then I played a mission where you had objectives like "wash the dishes" and "make the bed" and spent like 30 minutes doing housekeeping duties. Then another level you were acting as a male nurse for an old man.

I looked up online to see if there any more missions like that and I would have been ready to quit.

Just really strange stuff
