Not that simple.

In the US the immense vast majority of the education system at any level is heavily left leaning. So that means children are indoctrinated at a young age and therefore they are more inclined to believe in the liberalism and in this day and age, unfortunately that tends to be more extremist.

You can already see the effects it has had on kids coming out of high school. it's sad.

Yeah that has been driving me nuts. I wouldn't mind, but most of them email you over and over. Like you are going to be missing out on something if you don't go into your account and accept the spam.

No thanks.

You can blame the regulations for that. Companies must notify all customers of policy changes so they are aware.

It's all good making the changes, but we dont need to know everything about it....

I'd take it that accounts for them wanting to abolish science because it's racist

Modern 3rd wave feminism and political correctness **Interesting titbit PC was actually coined by Stalin to keep the communist party etc... in power** And modern 3rd wave feminism have done extreme amounts of damage to western civilisation over the last 30 years that will take dozens of generations to set right and maybe even a civil war or 2, Both really are a cancer of western civilisation.

EDIT

On a side note never go onto the Nvidia forums and ask for info about a specific problem, One of the mods on there, Sora, Is one hell of a jerk off, I'm amazed Nvidia haven't gotten rid of him, Speaks to people like pieces of dirt.

I tell you, I am my own worst enemy at times. My mother wanted to change the spare room (which was a util room) back into a bedroom. It makes sense, especially now that I am single again (because I like seeing the visitors). Any way, she wants this bed from Ikea. I find one very similar only it's German. Instead of just three drawers it has a pull out bed inside it (on wheels) that you can also use as a big frig off drawer.And also three drawers. Then I had to build it. About 2000 screws, and three page instructions that expect you to be fluent in rocket science FFS.

Took me 7 hours. I literally had to build two seperate beds and three large drawers ffs. And there wasn't a whiff of MDF, just a metric ton of pine and a shed load of wood glue. Seriously the first 1.5 hours was literally inserting, hammering in and gluing wooden studs. A bomb could go off next to it and it would just shrug ffs.

Sounds like when I lived in Germany a few years ago, I bought a bed that was stupid expensive but it was an emperor/empress size ? It was maHOOsive, I got it for less than advertised as I opted to put it together myself, Holy crap in a handbag, Immense job as it was all solid oak and solid steel joints, Screws etc... Painful would be an understatement

On a side note I have started a personal fund, I'm keeping hold of the 8700K and Titan Xp this year and by Q3 next year I should have enough saved to buy whatever top end CPU+GPU is out at the time, Including the top end Titan and Core i9, Never really saved towards something like this before for such an extended period of time so it should be fun
