    Man, that is offensive. I am triggered.
    You should have posted a trigger warning in the title!

    They don't struggle enough and thus see problems where there isn't one, want to help people that don't want no help...

    From what I hear from other Americans outside of California, it is mostly California. And the "big Companys" should make a blind dart throwing contest on the US Map. And where the most darts land, the HQ should be.

    California right now is ruining the fun for everyone. And yeah, Seattle isn't any better....
    And Sony is also "right next" to Google/Facebook/Twitter and all the other things like that...

    Yeah, its lack of community or the destruction of that that helps and also not enforcing the law in certain areas because that is racist, sexist, homophobic and islamophobic...

    because guns are evil and the people shot in Chicago are shot with totally legally obtained guns. Totally not illegal guns, that are unlawfully owned...

    So ban guns, then there ain't no shootings - works well in London.
    But talking about the Issue is Racist, Sexist, Homophobic, Islamophobic and so on...

    Don't forget the Needles! And the Security footwork that might be recommended so that you don't tread into a needle - that was paid for by YOUR Taxpayers money, given for free to people who want it...

    And don't forget the spikes that some companies seem to have installed so that the homeless don't sleep there...

    And lets not talk about the cost of living over in California...


    Well, the Map here is telling:

    Anyway, I pray that you find a good place in the US but to be frank: Right now I'd get out of California as soon as possible and as far as possible...
    Or at least out of the big cities...

    Is that sarcasm again? Because Chicago has the toughest gun laws in the country and the guns ARE illegal:

    Interestingly it says ATX_CPU and ATX_SYS on the connectors; what does this mean?

    I saw that. Obviously "ATX_CPU" does seem to be an ATX12V power connector for CPU power. But that "ATX_SYS" connector ain't NOTHING defined in the ATX spec!

    Yes, wasn't that obvious enough?

    Yes and only competitor to Chicago/illinois is California IIRC.

    But something like 80-90% of Gun Murders are done with illegally owned Firearms...
    And nobody talks about that. Or the Stabbings in London, where there are no Firearms...

    Ye certain areas in London are a mess right now. Stabbings, shootings, acid attacks and robbery have all been on a steady rise this year.

    Yikes! Please stab me instead.

    We just had a conversation at lunch yesterday... I need to show an ID to buy spray paint and sudafed. But I can walk into a Home Depot and buy a machete and an axe and nobody is the wiser.
