    • I am still really not a fan of the site's new format.

      I can't seem to create a link that's attached to text. On the old site I would post a link like "Here's a link I thought was funny" and it would go to http/www.funnyrandomthing.com.

      But now when I try to make text into a link it looks like this http/funnyrandomthink.com here's a funny link I found.


      And I keep finding little things about the site that doesn't seem to flow as well as it used to. I feel like it has really become less user friendly. And there's no longer really a tab for it. The social site is like an afterthought they threw onto their video site.


      And I can't figure out how to view other people's posts. That's why I enjoyed the site, to see the neat stuff other people were doing. And it was easy to get to. You had a big feed and you just clicked the everyone tab.

      I have no idea where the feed is on the new site, much less where the everyone tab is.

    • Can I make a suggestion about the RT site?

      2 years ago

      I'm not narcissistic enough to think that this is actually going to accomplish anything, but here goes.

      Why do videos automatically play on the site? I mean, I go to the main page to read posts from cast and crew, and I'm suddenly listening to a Geico commercial because the latest episode of RvB is auto playing. Or if I'm listening to the patch on my iPod and I want to view to link dump as I'm listening suddenly I have a second track of the episode playing from my computer.

      I don't want to nitpick, but this is something that's annoyed me for years about the site. Is there some simple way of turning off auto play that I've just missed?

    • Gay Marriage is Legal? Thanks Reddit

      I think that's a great step for the American nation.

      However, I'm conflicted about the WAY I learned about it. Reddit. I mean, this was a BIG moment in the world. Am I so disconnected from reality that I had to learn about it from a social media site? Or is that just the way news will be delivered in the near future? What is my life right now?

    • Comet Lander has the most depressing Tweets

      The probe Philae landed on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko in November of last year. Sadly, it landed in a dark area of the comet and started to die with hours of landing. The Twitter account personifying the Lander has been both humorous and depressing, it tells a sad story:

      "I'm on the surface but my harpoons did not fire. My team is hard at work now trying to determine why."

      "Phew! I am confident that our teams will find me. Wouldn't like to lose touch with you."

      "The view is absolutely breathtaking! Unlike anything I've ever seen."

      "I just started lifting myself up a little and will now rotate to try and optimize the solar power!"

      "So much hard work.. getting tired... my battery voltage is approaching the limit soon now..."

      "I'm feeling a bit tired, did you get all my data? I might take a nap..."

      But this depressing story has a happy ending, 13 hours ago Philae's twitter account posted:

      "Hello Earth! Can you hear me?"

      After months of inactivity the probe has finally been able to recharge it's batteries.

    • Gaijin took down one of the Know's videos

      2 years ago

      mrbibs350

      A couple of days ago I posted a journal on quasi-illegal Steam Sale activities by Gaijin, the makers of War Thunder. Later, the Know did a video covering the controversy. And today it looks like that video has been taken down. Gaijin has claimed a "copyright issue", and removed the video.

      This reminds me of the Total Biscuit/Day One: Garry's Incident from a few months ago. Total Biscuit put up a video criticizing Day One, and the developers "copyright issue" removed the video. This started a SHITSTORM of negative press for Day One.

      The difference here is, the Know was actually trying to absolve Gaijin of legal wrongdoing. The video refuted the idea that Gaijin did anything illegal, so why did Gaijin take it down? It's obvious they didn't even watch it, and assumed it spoke negatively of them. If you assume that a video done on you is negative, doesn't that indicate an awareness of wrong doing on your part?

    • Illegal Steam Sale Activities

      2 years ago

      mrbibs350

      The Steam Sale is a major part of the gaming industry in the Summer. Massive price cuts drive massive sales. However, several game developers RAISE prices a few weeks before the Sale. That way, during they sale they can advertise merchandise as being "On Sale" while still charging the normal amount for their product. Not only is this an immoral business tactic, it's illegal in the US. Such behavior is prohibited by the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations.

      The sad part is, if these developers are caught breaking these regulations they won't be the ones held responsible, it will be Valve that is affected by legal action.


      If you buy something during the Steam Sale try to be aware of whether you're actually getting a good deal, or if you're being cheated. You could accidentally contribute to developers who are grabbing money at the expense of Steam.

    • The closet I've ever come to death.

      2 years ago

      I realize that everyday we probably come closer to dying just by driving or riding a bike than we do at any other time in our lives. What I'm talking about is a moment where you had the thought "I'm about to die" or when you did something and a few minutes later realize how close to death you were. I have two:

      The most recent one isn't that out of the ordinary. My dad and I hike every once in a while, just on a trail or to a camping spot. A week ago we were walking down a railroad on a lake near our house. Very Stand By Me, lol. Anyway, we were walking, and past a certain point you stop paying attention to what you're walking on. Then, about two steps in front of me I see a rattlesnake. I should preface, my family is pretty outdoorsy and I've only seen one other rattlesnake in my entire life, and not very close. Actually at the start of the trip my dad said "careful, there are rattlesnakes" and my sardonic reply was "yeah, but not many" Back to the story, I was about two steps away from this rattlesnake when I noticed it. It was at least four feet long, and it had just eaten so it was about as wide as the thickest part of your arm. Just for reference stick out your index, middle, and ring fingers. That's the size of this guys head. I have no idea what I did between seeing this snake and being twenty feet away from it, but my dad described it latter. He said "you were about to put your right foot down, but then you picked it back up about to your shoulder. Then you took two steps backwards with one foot, somehow." And that was the clearest time in my head where I thought "I'm about to die," though now I don't think I was in any danger. I don't think the rattlesnake felt threatened, and having just eaten he probably wasn't feeling very active. Also, fucker never rattled!

      The other time I came close to death I didn't actually realize how much danger I was in until I was out of it. My dad and I were whitewater kayaking on a pretty rough stretch of river in the NC mountains, the French Broad. Although we had kayaked flat water for years this was our first time in whitewater, and we truly should not have been there. For anyone who's never been in whitewater, imagine a river about 100 yards wide. 3000 cubic feet of water pass by you every second, or about 1/30th of Niagara Falls. And interspersed throughout the river are rocks, hundreds and thousands of rocks. Imagine a maze with a river running through it and you have whitewater. The maze has one or two paths through it that are the width of your kayak, if you take the wrong path you're swimming. The maze also tends to take 90 degree turns randomly. Now imagine trying to steer through the maze at a speed a little faster than you can ride a bike. As said, my dad and I had pretty much no idea what we were doing, and we made quite a few mistakes. Our biggest one was following each other too closely. Our logic was that we should be close incase one of us needed help. What we didn't count on was getting in each others way. We were navigating the whitewater maze, with my dad in front, when suddenly the path we were following took a right turn. My dad ground to a halt in the turn, blocking it. And suddenly I was being pulled in-between two rocks each about the size of a car, backwards. A narrow stream ran between the rocks, but the rocks were so close to gather that the stream had no head room, it was pretty much a drainage pipe, and I was being sucked into it backwards. I couldn't have paddled against the current if my life depended on it, so I had two choices: climb out of the kayak onto one of the car rocks and be trapped in the middle of a river, or bend down so that I could fit through the drainage pipe sized hole. I bent forward and went through, for a brief few seconds passing through a very dark, small cave with no idea of where it would go. A few seconds later I came out of the cave into an eight foot waterfall. I land backwards, at a about 15 mph with no idea of how I'd gotten there. And it occurred to me: that cave might have gone nowhere. It might have lead to an underground river that could have sucked me in, or a 50 foot drop onto rocks. I'm a very lucky person.

      The lesson learned? Apparently, don't hang out with your dad. He can get you into some shit.

      I saw your post about not being able to see the everyone feed and I thought I'd help you out. If you go to the community drop down menu at the top of the screen and click on dashboard. From there you'll see a feeds section in the top left corner and you can select the everyone feed from there.

      Hope this helped and have a good one!
