    I still have mine. Black, with all possible accessories - even the dreadful WaveBird wireless controller and the snap-on Game Boy Player... :D

    I spend most of today annoyed with the fact I pulled a 1 star Toyota 86 from a silver crate in CSR2. Plus, I worked on a book I've been slowly writing for the last 3 years

    Nightmare should be mostly over now, I got my refund so I will try to rebuy a lesser edition at some point. But first I'm going to find a good disk-imaging program so if this happens again I can just scorched-earth the whole thing and not lose much in the process.

    Mine is silver, also with a Game Boy Player attached, and no longer sees any use. I have black and silver controllers, as well as two WaveBirds but no receivers.

    I got it to frickin' work. I'm going to have to buy all the DLC separately, at a great cost, but I got it to work.

    Hey Microsoft, maybe a slightly shorter tutorial section next time please?

    Oh, and less dirt racing. Dirt racing is unfair to wheel master race.

    Tomorrow I officially turn 25. Every year I'm a little less happy about it. When I was young, birthdays were fun, I mean what's not to like about a day where you get to do no work, eat unlimited sugar, and do whatever you want all day? But now it's just an annual reminder of how little I'm accomplishing in life. I've been a legal adult for 7 years, had 6 jobs in that time, and every single one of them has been entry-level. I have ideas kicking around in my head for video games and I never learn how to make them reality. I've wanted to start modding BeamNG for almost a year and I never do it.

    Don't know what I'll do tomorrow (other than work, of course); maybe the answer will depend on whether I can find a decent restaurant in town that isn't still mandating Corona Fear Circus Face Diapers. Maybe head out to the mountains and beat on the Veloster some more, I don't know. Maybe just sit home and play Forza Horizon 4, because that's how I'll forget that time has already mostly passed me by.

    Just... heck it.

    ... which have proven to limit the spread of the virus... something Americans are really failing to achieve thanks to this short-sighted way of thinking.

    So many unquestioned assumptions in such a short post. What's really shortsighted is the failure to think beyond "REDUCE CASE COUNT NOW NOW NOW", which is leading people to accept things that will haunt us forever. Remember when it was "two weeks to flatten the curve"? Yeah, at this point I no longer believe anything was ever intended to stop there. But people still think you're a "conspiracy theorist" when you tell them that governments and powerful NGOs are not controlled by sinless angels with everyone's best interests but their own at heart, so let me put it this way:

    1. Has air travel become more or less enjoyable since the terrorist attacks of the early 2000s gave everyone Security Fever?
    2. Has... literally anything become more or less enjoyable since the virus lockdowns started?
    3. Do you want the virus response to last as long as the terrorism response lasted and, in some places, is still lasting?

    So think ahead to the year 2039 or so - same length of time. Would you, at some point in time between now and then, like to permanently throw away the oxygen deprivation devices and stop obsessively "distancing" yourself from everyone in heinously impractical ways, and go back to actual normality? If so, then the time is now to call for faster and more complete reopenings. Places like New Zealand think that by saying "how high" when the authorities said "jump" they got themselves back to normal faster. What they actually did was hose themselves by accepting the principle that every time someone coughs or gets a sore throat, the whole country should grind to a halt for weeks or months on end to "stop the spread". The instant they reopen their borders, they're just counting down to the start of the next interminable lockdown.

    There's already some new strain of swine flu that they want everyone to be afraid of, should we panic and lock down over that too? Spend another year pretending that people can just put their entire lives on hold indefinitely with no ill or lingering effects? Heck, why not force people to wear masks in perpetuity, just in case someone has the flu and doesn't know/care? We've already accepted the principle of "sick until proven well", why should it stop with just this virus? Why not keep "contact tracing" everyone forever just in case there's an outbreak of a different sickness, I mean, why are you concerned about the invasion of privacy if you really have nothing to hide?

    I'm not really sure how much I can say here without getting reported and banned because "No PoLiTiCs", so I'll delete the other 5 or 6 paragraphs I had written and end it here. All I'll say is, taking the "easy way out" by staying home for months on end in a face-diapered, socially-distanced panic will only lead to more pain later, probably in a completely unexpected way. Eventually, just like the security fever that took hold after 9/11, we'll come to our senses and realize that the momentary feeling of safety wasn't worth it in the long run - but by then it will be too late.

    That's what was done anywhere else, and it allowed most other countries that took this seriously since the start to lift lockdown restrictions in a few months.

    Doing nothing isn't helping, and the situation the US are currently in is just proof of that.

    Excuse me? Are you trying to suggest that focusing on “reduce the cases of this extremely deadly virus with lasting health effects including organ damage” is short sighted and somehow bad?

    It really is a sorry state of affairs when wearing a mask to literally save lives has become a political debate. They don’t damage your lungs, they don’t restrict your freedom, they’re mildly uncomfortable at best.

    The sooner people get over this irrational hatred of masks, the more lives will be saved, AND, get this - the sooner you’ll be able to stop wearing them.

    but the sooner everyone catches the disease, the sooner everyone dies, and no one has to wear a mask anymore!

    DISCLAIMER: Me taking things seriously and possible effects/symptoms of autism here.
    Okay, people aren't gonna accept the coronavirus haunting them forever if that's what you mean. People wanna reduce cases and there's a reason for that. The reason for that is so that way, people can get back to work, school, and normal human life in general. Also, there's a 130,000+ deaths in the US and those numbers are continuing to rise. There's a reason people wanna wear masks and social distance.
    Face diapers. Really? How old are you? 13? Masks aren't like diapers at all. 1. They're way smaller. And 2. They don't have safety pins or other diaper features. How could wearing masks and social distancing lead to more pain later? Also, unexpected? Something tells me that "unexpected thing" isn't gonna happen at all, but I don't know what it is.
    The reopenings could probably happen safer and faster if we all wore masks and social distanced. From what I've heard. There's evidence that wearing a mask helps. Go ahead and say that I'm getting "brainwashed", but I don't care. I heard a surgeon general say masks are an instrument of freedom or something along the lines of that and I kinda agree with him. Like I said, wearing masks probably will not only help things reopen faster, but they'll probably also help reopenings to be safer. Please just suck it up and wear a mask. Sure, it might be uncomfortable, but it'll probably help the world, or at least America in the long run.
    Even if there is, we should still follow safety guidelines and do responsible things like wearing masks or social distancing. People can probably stop wearing masks sooner if everyone wore a mask. Please stop acting so entitled and just wear a mask. It'll probably save a bunch of lives and you'll get to stop wearing it sooner if non-mask wearers quit being such babies and just wear a f**king mask.
    Exactly. They might even help with your freedom for all we know.

    Look, I might somehow being taking things too seriously here, but people need to quit being such babies and just wear a mask at least until we get COVID under control.

    You're completely and utterly insane.

    EDIT: Posts have now been deleted in the meantime, just clarifying that this isn't directed towards Grind86's post above.

    Oh right, I forgot. If you don't automatically and unquestioningly believe literally everything you are told by the news (but only the correct news sources), that automatically makes you insane.
