    Burnie said the last dude soup he was on, that he was fine with a unconcerned  version of Demo Disk, as long as it was for First members only and had plenty of warning for viewers. I agree that half the fun is having all of that blur, it saved me when i fell asleep watching Demo Disks and my mother walked in. She had a few questions after that episode.

    The discussion about the idea of suddenly getting your digital accomplishments/possessions that you're personally invested in deleted reminded me of the gimmick used at the end of Bravely Second.

    Where the final boss slowly forces you to delete you save file with every button press. I know it's not the only game to do this sort of thing, and it didn't do it for real. But the idea of holding your time and interest investments hostage like that is a really interesting concept dive into.

    With regards to my comment that featured in the last post show about Socialism and Capitalism in terms of Net Neutrality and Utilities, I wasn't in any way implying that I think it should be "either this or that" as James said (Unless you weren't implying I am one of these people that do this). I too am frustrated by how people think in purely black and white terms. I'm also well aware that, in the US and Europe, there's a fusion of Capitalist ideas and Socialist ideas, and that, in an ideal world, we'll have the best of both worlds (and others). I just wanted some clarification where it seemed that you thought a government controlled utility (Net Neutrality in this case) was emblematic of Capitalism when, in this specific example, it seems more emblematic of a Socialist idea. That's it. I wasn't making a broader point about "we should be 100% socialist" or "we should be 100% capitalist". Sorry for the misunderstanding and keep up the good work!

    TL;DR Australia has had very strict mobile phone driving laws for years.  

    You can't hold or even touch your phone if you are in control a vehicle (ignition key in, doesn't matter if it's on or not).  This includes if the phone is sitting in your lap; if your just moving the phone from one spot to another; using it as a GPS; and using it as a media device.  The only time you can touch your phone whilst in control of a vehicle is when answering and ending a phone call - BUT only when the phone is in a cradle / holster that must be affixed to the vehicle.  However, you are allowed to control your phone with voice commands.  If you're caught, you will be awarded a hefty fine and gain demerit points, usually 3 - max obtainable demerit points in Australia is 12.  I'm an ambulance officer, the two biggest things I hate are drink drivers, and people who use their fucking phone whilst driving - which BTW is equivalent to being 3x over the legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.05.  For those wondering, Australian BAC limit = 0.05 grams (50 milligrams) of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood.  I have a bit of fun with them when I can though.  Whenever I see someone of their phone whilst at a traffic light, I give the siren a little love tap and watch them shit their pants because they think I'm a cop.  Works every time :D

    I do wonder how accurate the data on "distraction related incidents" is: in a crash, devices will be thrown across the vehicle and may not be counted, as they are deemed inconclusive. Also with minor incidents, how many people are going to lie to avoid accountability? You can't lie about being drunk, but you can about reading twitter.


    James does make a very good point about societal norms overruling law, but I feel the fines will make a difference over time. Seat belts are the classic example: no-one used them initially despite legal requirement but it is now the norm due to the change in legislation and the technology did not have to change for this to happen (belts didn't start doing themselves up).

    Finally a realistic discussion on texting and driving! As opposed to the usual "Nobody should ever text and drive, and if you say you are, you should be thrown in prison" It is more of a "if you say you are not texting and driving, or driving distracted, you are lying."

    I don't endorse it, but saying it never happens is without a doubt, unrealistic. The only thing to make this more of a "real" discussion is if it was mentioned that the laws against texting and driving could have inadvertently made texting and driving worse on account of now everyone is hiding the phones in their laps. When it was still legal, I had my phone on my dashboard when I did it because I could see with peripherals, and reduce transition time between looking at phone and looking at road. Now, I just see people staring at their crotches instead of the roads.

    I would be interested to see the statistics on repeat offenders for the driving while distracted laws. When you get a ticket for using your phone, are people usually right back to it before even the end of the ride? Some people texting friends about how they just got a ticket for texting as they pull away from the cop would honestly not surprise me.

    we have this law in Australia about texting or calling in the car, and it hasn't stopped anyone, but it has made a lot of money for the government. Speeding fines also don't stop people speeding, just the same as any fine I have ever seen.

      Nothing 'stops' people from doing anything on the road. Penalties are meant to be a deterrent from doing the wrong thing lol since roads are a shared resource, if you have the attitude of 'all these restrictions and fines are just the cops trying to make money' there's not alot you can do. When's the last time you heard of anyone flooring it past a speed camera and then complain it's 'revenue raising' when they get a fine? Ahaha

      @WillTodd I literally hear that all the time... Penalties aren't a deterrent, that's my whole point. So if they aren't a deterrent and it only makes money for the state, then its revenue raising

    I attended Pokemon Go Fest and I enjoyed it! I will admit I was annoyed with the terrible connection problems and I wasn't able to participate in the competitions for prizes which was frustrating. The first 5 hours of the event wasn't very good because of all the problems. But I never got to the point of booing anyone or yelling at the special guest Youtubers. I did witness a guy go up to the CEO of Niantic while he was signing and scream at him demanding for a refund which was fun... The event got much better when they expanded the rare spawns an extra 2miles around the original event space. With that extra space the game ran smoothly and honestly I found way more Pokemon outside than I would have in the park. I was also getting to see more of Chicago than I would have in that small space they started in though I will admit I was looking at my phone most of the time ( I didn't even know I was next to Willis Tower until the game told me I was lol). Once the legendary Pokemon started appearing everyone was happier and groups of people were rushing around together to catch them. It honestly felt like when the game first came out and everyone around you was playing and socializing with each other and it felt great! I met a lot of new and interesting people and made some new friends. I cant be too angry with Niantic because there were other factors that were out of their control that caused issues. Also because of Pokemon Go I was able to lose 100lbs+ and become far healthier than I've ever been and for that I will always be thankful and supportive. Hopefully they learned a bit from this event and their future events will go by smoothly. I definitely plan on attending another one.

    I'm not trying to defend the whole "kekistan" movement, haven't even used 4chan in several years aside from the wallpaper board. But I just wanted to point out that /pol/ is not for politics, the full name is Politically Incorrect. And while it is arguably one of the worst places on the internet, it's that kind of shit that gives the whole site a bad reputation. /wg/, Wallpapers General, as well as /adv/ (Advice), and several others, are actually really civil and pleasant boards to visit and have conversations in. That board is not for politics, it's explicitly for cringy racist children. /rant

      I only ever go to 4chan to talk about bicycles on /n/, it is one of the Slowest boards but has a nice community that doesn't just hold your hand and like.. idk it's more like a helps you help yourself type of thing. I've been on the site since it's inception on the SA forums but the last few years I've just really found my place in /n/ and I'll occasionally venture out but find it's not worth it since everything is just SO FAST, I feel like I waste my day trying to keep up so I don't anymore. The boards def have to regulate themselves because even /n/ wasn't all about bikes a few years back so maybe it's just the vocal minority that swings what it's about, it's never really a static idea. I'm fine with /pol/ being a containment board at this point because even /n/ was getting /pol/-trolls but it does suck that it's the first thing people might see and they might not want to venture beyond the filth to talk with people that aren't so abrasive.

      /pol/ was originally a board for actual political discussion before it was almost immediately jacked by stormfront and other similar sites. Really sadly ironic that /pol/ was originally created to be a clean slate after the previous news and discussion board /new/ was also overrun with stormfronters. 


      My personal favorite board is /po/, the papercraft and origami hobby board. It's one of the few left that hasn't mobius stripped up its own ass full of memes and tripfags.

      I wouldn't say its one of the "worst places on in the internet" I guess if you solely disagree with the political or social commentary being discussed there then sure but that is entirely preference based.  I think that is the entire point of 4chan in the first place, you can look at your wallpapers and not be bothered by people talking about political news on the same site. Make sense? I don't frequent /pol/ as much as I used to but I do see the value in it. Sometimes they break stories before they are even out. Sometimes they even cover stories that really should but will never be discussed anywhere else(especially not in mainstream media). Its actually kind of astounding the amount of information that is some how "forgotten" due to biased news organizations. You immediately see the double standards and the hypocrisy of some of these organizations in real time and that is something everyone should know about. Sure there are racists and trolls and everything else but at the same time the same anonymity that gives those people the right to speak their minds also allows for an unlimited stream of information that can sneak its way into mainstream consciousness without being "shut down" by those who don't want you to know about it.
