As CAG’s resident annoying vegan I want to correct a myth believed by many, including some older doctors. Tofu and other soy products do not have estrogen. They have phytoestrogens, which block real estrogen. Bodybuilder Brian Turner even did a YouTube video where he ate a pound of tofu every day for a month. His testosterone levels went up.
Phytoestrogens ARE estrogen, it’s just the kind that plants use rather than humans. In humans it has a pretty weak effect but it doesn’t block anything; I think you just got information from someone that doesn’t understand a complex topic.

Not even close. The law was passed to slam a lead pipe into the legs of USPS. The law makes the USPS fund the pension for 75 years, meaning someone who hasn't been born yet probably has the pension they will receive from USPS already funded. It is ridiculous as no private company does this and some do not even prefund their pensions. It was designed to cripple the USPS so crony capitalism can come in and save it by privatizing it and finally killing one of The USA's greatest inventions.
This is completely false but I’m not going to continue a political argument on a gaming forum.

One other point; EAs argument about single player and limiting daily rewards may have been legit. In their other games there are definitely players that farm single player modes (usually with bots) to make coins that they then sell to regular players. Since EA is making so much money selling the loot boxes there’s plenty of incentive for a black market.

This is the first time I've really wished I had 280 characters on Twitter, since Cheapy only saw half of my "Xbox One X v. iPhone X" question (my fault). I realize that smartphones are way more useful and consequential for daily life than a gaming console. My question is more: both are expensive upgrades to existing, cheaper options. Neither are for everyone, but it seems that people are generally okay with the hefty price tag of a new iPhone but that the One X is getting a lot of heat for costing $500. Are we just not used to the idea of mid-cycle console upgrades yet? Is there a substantial difference between a mid-cycle upgrade for a console and the hottest hardware refresh for the iPhone?
To me, it's not a problem for Microsoft that the One S is so much cheaper. People who want an inexpensive way to play Xbox games will buy that and have a blast. Idiots like me who buy the One X (though to be fair I'm doing it with GameStop credit as opposed to "real money") are fine with the luxury price tag.
It makes sense in the long run for console manufacturers to upgrade existing platforms over time, allowing customers to play games they own on whatever machine they can afford. The hard cut to a new console generation costs everyone way more in time and money. I just wonder how long it will take people to accept something they already accept in other tech areas.
I wasn’t buying Shipwreck’s argument at all. First of all you can get the same functionality with a phone that comes “free” with your plan. Second, even if you have to have an Apple phone all of the things he mentioned are already present in your existing iPhone, again at no additional cost. So your point was completely valid; people are spending a lot of money for trivial luxury features that don’t have any meaningful impact of the utility of the phone. Personally I won’t spend the money on either, but if I had to choose the improved Xbox graphics even if barely noticeable bring more value.

Cheapy and Ship don't say it the correct Italian way either; it's Mahr-yo; the a is more like Wombat says it, roll the r and there's no i sound. But as Marry-o Cuomo said, pronouncing it the Italian way is an affectation, and most Italian Americans say it Marry-o. Marry-o Andretti says it that way too. As far as I can tell the video game Mari-o pronunciation is based off the way Japanese say the name, not how Italians or Italian-Americans say it.

Amazon would reject it. All their return policies for everything except books states that it has to be returned unopened & still in the plastic wrap. Which makes sense, because you bought it new & are trying to return it used.
Ignore this completely incorrect statement. If it's within 30 days then just use the online returns center. It will explain any charges before you actually submit the return, but you should only have to pay for shipping. I've even had them waive the shipping sometimes, even if the return was my fault.
[For future reference the only things that have to be unopened are CDs, DVDs and software that you could have just copied.]
