    Feeling sick after not eating for 14 days

    What an arrogant thing to say. Could you give me the names of your lecturers from those courses so I can google up their studies? Oh wait, that would make them google sources. How awkward! Also just for a dose of irony: Instead of parroting what you heard in a lecture hall, try surviving a...

    Feeling sick after not eating for 14 days

    As Lil devils x points out above, the process starts pretty much right off the bat. Also you're talking about fasting which is leaving out some foodstuffs but still eating something, and even when leaving out everything fasting like that only takes a few days due to the hazards mentioned above...

    Feeling sick after not eating for 14 days

    14 days isn't fasting, it's starving.

    Feeling sick after not eating for 14 days

    All you have to do to lose weight is burn more than you take in, this starving-yourself shit will kill you. You're supposed to burn away fat, not muscle tissue. When you starve, the body cannibalizes your muscles to survive. A lot of people in here are convinced this is a prank, but we're...

    Woman charged with Manslaughter after stun went very wrong

    This is why I'm glad Finland has mandatory military service. Gives even the simplest guy at least SOME inkling of respect and knowledge regarding firearms and especially firearms safety. How can 30+ people just stand there like nothing is going to go wrong when someone's about to put a .50 cal...

    BioWare Apologizes For Representation of Trans Character in Andromeda

    Out of everything wrong with the game in its current state, THIS is what they choose to apologize for? Christ, come on... Why must Bioware continue with this tradition of ham-fisted adding of checklist-characters. I'm fine with having diverse characters, but WRITE THEM PROPERLY for goodness...

    Blizzard is Raising Prices for WoW Account Services in the UK and EU

    What this guy said. But gamers need to complain about anything and everything a game company does nowadays no matter how reasonable; I mean for goodness sake, it's gotten to the point where cheating in a computer game and getting banned for it is the company's fault and not the cheaters' -...

    Why is counter-strike popular?

    Because it's balanced and simplistic. The kind of stuff a good skill-based shooter requires to flourish. It's the same reason chess is still massively popular even though we live in an age of increasingly complex and shiny RTS games. You don't need a ton of bells and whistles to be popular...

    Overwatch Cheaters Are Getting Wrecked By Blizzard

    Agreed, finally a system that shows there's consequences. Why should there be leniency when ample warning has been given? Repeat offenders thrive and learn they can come to actually rely on a community's "understanding". "Oh I promise I won't do it again". Yeah, you won't because you're...

    Overwatch Cheaters Are Getting Wrecked By Blizzard

    Cheater's justice, don't do the crime if you can't do the time. These platforms have made it very clear you lose your ACCOUNT and not just the game if you get caught cheating. Steam, Battlenet, whatever. These folks gambled and lost, and I won't lose any sleep over being rid of people who get...

    More Battlefield 1 Info: Server Browser, Weapon Attachments, and More

    If I see a single modern camo pattern on the weapons I will lose my shit. I'm impressed they're trying something new, but the fact they put that Dubstep-tier-nonsense in the trailer has me worried. I know, I know; it's a hundred years ago, so the "be respectful" thing might ring a bit...

    Ubisoft Details Penalties for Cheaters in The Division

    You do something once and it's a discovery sure. What if then your game profile shows you never report it anywhere on official channels and you in fact replicate it several times. Who's to blame at that point? People really need to grow up and take some responsibility for their own actions...

    Ubisoft Details Penalties for Cheaters in The Division

    Punishing cheaters and fixing their game are not mutually exclusive things. I hope they stick to this and actually do boot people out permanently if they're caught twice. Don't need that kind of thing stinking up the online neighbourhood.

    Ubisoft to Punish Players Who Exploit Glitch in The Division's "Falcon Lost"

    It might be a bad idea, but what is the alternative? Just ignore it? Sounds like a terrific idea. Actual lawmakers IRL could learn something from that attitude. Oh you stole something? Better let you off with a slap on the wrist just in case there's a protest afterward. Comparing singleplayer...

    Ubisoft to Punish Players Who Exploit Glitch in The Division's "Falcon Lost"

    It's so classic. People knowingly cheat, fully aware that a punishment may well be on the way. Then when they're told it's coming, they complain that the person who makes the rules is at fault. I usually don't agree with any of the "gamers are entitled" nonsense, but every time some part of a...
