You sure? I'm using Lawnchair right now and it has cover mode.
Unless they're removing it in v14 for some reason?

I very much enjoy the first movie. I have watched it several times and still enjoy going back to it. I absolutely agree the plot is puddle-deep, as you said, and it makes no attempt at all to disguise its analogies ("unobtanium"), but it's mastery is not in the story itself but the way in which it is told. It's almost operatic in the amount of time it spends within each story beat. The second film failed to do a lot of the things I loved about the first one and was very forgettable.

This alone is a nothingburger. But it might set the precedent for other states to make the same ruling.

Then again the SC will likely overrule this, so most likely nothing matters.

GOG or STEAM? how do you choose?

With the use of Heroic game launcher, I’m wondering if you all preferred to play your GOG version of games over the Steam version. I can go either way but sometimes I pause and think, having two copies of the same game, one on steam and one on GOG, which one would give me a better gaming experience. For example, I may choose...

Are there any good tools for incorporating third party games into Steam, like what Steam ROM Manager does for emulators?

Big bump for Sundered if you like 2D Metroidvanias. I have played through it at least 5 times (you need to do it 3 times to get all the endings)

Yeah, the amount of work that has gone into these for a one-time purchase of $25 is a pretty great deal.

Jim Jordan tried to help Trump mount a coup. Now he gets to be speaker? (www.motherjones.com)

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), like Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), the man he hopes to replace as House speaker, lies a lot. Jordan’s rapid-style monologues—on topics such as Russia’s attack on the 2016 election, Donald Trump’s 2019 effort to extort Ukraine, Hunter Biden, and internet censorship—are often loaded with...

FTTP actively encourages a two party system. We need to change the way we vote so we can have better candidates and better representation.

I would say regulated capitalism in a nutshell. Raw capitalism wants to pay workers as little as possible for as much production as possible.

Possibly the dust is so caked on it's harder to wipe through all of it?

The 2 party system doesn't change until voting changes. First-past-the-post voting actively encourages 2 dominant parties. Ranked choice voting isn't perfect, but it's definitely better than FTTP and it has the most momentum in the US right now.

It's not quite as mind-shatteringly good, but it has some great "ah-ha" moments.

Ahh, the LSR (Lump Stick Rectangle) model. Miss those.

Depends on the games you like to play. I've been working through a bunch of metroidvanias and it's great. I would much rather sit on the couch with my Deck in hand than sit in front of my PC with a controller.

How do I do "front pages" in kbin?
Where do I go to only see posts from magazines I'm subscribed to?
Where do I go to only see microblog posts from users that I follow?

I love that it's fricking 9:30 PM and there's still light in the sky. Summer is the best.

@AskThinkingTim Hopefully you'll get to enjoy some late summer twilights in the December solstice!
Do they still call December "winter" in Australia? Or is that the summer, and June-August are winter?

How to see a list of all the magazines you are subscribed to:

Select your username in the top right, choose 'Settings' (or 'Profile') from the dropdown, and (on mobile) scroll to the right on the horizontal menu and select 'subscriptions'.
