  1. Why do we call them halftracks and not halfwheels?

      Contrary to popular belief, halftrack is a combination of halft and rack, which is a reference to the German word halft which was a long tool that was used to check minefields. Halftracks, being very susceptible to mines, always had a rack for minesweeping tools, most commonly a halft.

      A pair of pants.

  2. I'll be here till they take me away or put me down.
  3. There's a fix here: https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/bkfy5k/as_of_1200_am_utc_nearly_all_firefox_extensions/emghlsf/ It's what I'm using. Supposedly they're rolling out an official fix now though... either way it's bullshit that add-ons have to be verified now. Never paid attention to this crap but maybe I should've. I guess it is a bit stupid to let software automatically update in this day and age - mea culpa.
  4. Firefox Jake spilled coffee all over the servers and disabled all my (and a shitload of other people's) add-ons. Saw an ad on Youtube just now. An ad - can you believe it? These are the end times.
  5. Go around the other side of the window and pulp him against it. Just be careful not to break the glass. The bugs will be kept out by the screen, that's what it's there for.
  6. Last night as I was lying in bed I heard something outside my window - looked up and there was a rat trying to chew his way in through the window screen. Hit him with a can of peanuts and then shut the window. It was some real horror movie shit. Either way I really hope he doesn't come back because sleeping with the window closed during the summer is no good at all.

    If we only had three weapons per class....

    No, he self-imposed those rules. I wouldn't have cared anyway though.

    I'll be honest with you I had two "scales of justice" on my mind rating these: Do I have any positive memories of me and/or my retard friends using these things? Have I ever been pissed off by someone killing me with it? I don't need a good reason either. Combine them and you get: Scout: Back Scatter Boston Basher Candy Cane Note: Boston Basher becomes the new stock option. Soldier: Panic Attack Equalizer I don't know the third all the others don't stand out or they pissed me off in the past. Pyro: Backburner Panic Attack Third Degree (after all it is just a better fire axe). Demoman: Tide Turner Chargin Targe Splendid Screen Heavy: Brass Beast Family Business Panic Attack Engineer: Panic Attack Jag Southern Hospitality Medic: Blutsager Solemn Vow Overdose Sniper: Razorback Tribalman's Shiv Shahanshah Spy: Enforcer L'etranger Red-Tape Recorder Looks good to me. Ship it.

    Yeah, sorry. And yeah it was him. He also replied on twitter to a post of someone hotgluing an Orendi figure and just said "whatever gets you there".

    Hopefully, on one hand maybe 2k saw how much hate was generated by the Outer Worlds being exclusive and would cut out the timed exclusivity bullshit. On the other, Gearbox is led by marketing master Randy "Nobody likes a bigot" Pitchford who more or less killed Borderlands by releasing it at the same time as Overwatch with a marketing budget of five dollars. Would not surprise me if he'd be the one begging for EGS exclusivity.
  18. Europeans may have been banned from the internet, but there's one place they'll never be banned from - our hearts. Speaking of I'm willing to bet if you made one of those shitty discord meme videos about Article 13 and spent all night tonight on social media viraling it it would have hundreds of thousands of views in a week.
