  1. Yeah, and that's why it's so easy to criticize governments. They almost all try to do what's best (I have my doubts about Brazil...) based on the incomplete information. It's based on guesses, so some will be wrong, so easy times to be the opposition, because mistakes will be made, because of that lack of complete, perfect, information and as opposition, you don't have to make decisions.
  2. I try to convice people too that population size doesn't matter yet, but it's so f*cking difficult for people to understand... And I'm really curious about infection numbers in China and the true infection rate, mortality rate; I think infection rate is much higher, thus mortality much lower, especially for those with no other medical issues. And I think we are overreacting, the economic damage done by the current measures is so high, that I fear it will cause many more deaths in the coming years than the direct deaths because of Corona. Especially because I think most of those who pass away would have passed away within in the next 2-5 years anyway. Though I understand that policy makers can't ignore public pressure and that emotion wins from ratio in these situations. Edit: And I think the largest problem is the desinformation campaigns going on; Western governments blaming the east, Russia destabilizing the West, China blaming the West. And yeah, it makes sense to do it, because it is better for those in charge to blame others than yourself, but truth is hard to find
  3. Yeah, in theory it could be a great addition to the game, connecting east with west and as you say even with Moria, also opening up a path to the north with Forodwaith where all possible sorts of evil lurks, with maybe even some ruins of utumno lying around. It will probably be disappointing and even lacking an east/west connection; while it should have a connection to the rift, helegrod and the moors I think. But they did something weird with the place connecting the misty mountains with the iron mountains. http://lotromap.net/terrainmap/google.html when looking at this map, it became such an enormous mountain range; Though advertising will be easy "Largest expansion ever" "huge landmass" with lot's of impassable mountains...
  4. as an outsider, it's just bizarre to see how US politics are these days. And it's sad to see both parties are more and more focussed on the differences and it appears their only goal is to offend those of another party. With Trump's reaction on the Iowa caucus, the lack of handshaking and most of all the speech-tearing by Pelosi as all time lows.
  5. I think both parties operate that way; That is THE disadvantage of a 2-party system/ winner takes all system, it's extremely difficult to change the status quo, you are 'always' stuck with the 2 ruling parties... And same for this, both parties have lunatics who are a 'little' extreme...

    World War 3

    well, if the USA and UK knew when too leave a country alone, this all would have never happened; We, as western world, just fucked up a lot of regions that are/were rich of natural resources to make a profit.

    World War 3

    well... I fear this will become war; What would the USA do if another country murders Pence (vice president), Mark Esper (secretary of defense) or Mark A. Milley (Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff). I think one of those roles (or a combination of those) matches Qasem Soleimani
  8. Well, I'd like to see an extension of my Lifetime VIP
  9. Well, but you aren't getting paid, you are the one who pays
  10. 2 at most For a new character it's something like this (I calculated it for my 2nd LT account if I had enough LP collected through the years for a cheap near-end-game alt) 1. Valar is 6.995 of 7.495 I think; 2. That new LI package is 4.995 and if I understood correctly you need 2 of those; so 10k points 3. 10 tiers on every legacy with MC, so 140 tiers = 1400 MC? 250 for 2k points, so 12k points; 4. You want to be up-to-date with crafting, 3 crafting proficiency's, 1.4k each, so 4.2k points 5. You want some XP-gains, I saw they have a 200% XP boost these days... 1.2k points if I remember correctly 35k in total, which you think I need for travel-skill-cooldown, that better crafting-thingy from the guild, some black keys for lootboxes? So the 150,- pack is really good, you buy 1 fresh lvl120 maxxed character* 120,- more for the xpac, because as RK, which is I think the best class, you want to have the new-dwarf race because of the fire-damage bonus *and yeah, you are overpowered, a kinmember used the valar on a rk, is 125 now and has replaced only 1 gear-piece till now and he has been an end-game raider for a long time, so he knows how to play the game.
  11. If they released this combined with a reliable way to get those catch-up items ingame, it wouldn't be that bad; But they just never learn...
  12. I think the Republicans have the same problem; But it's easier to see the mistakes of the other party then your own. That's the big disadvantage of the current technological advancements. We can read much more and get in contact with many more people very easily, but because we can't have contact with everyone, so the big tech companies made algoritms to filter the information. The effect is that we have more and more contact with people with the same opinion, who reinforce each others opinion. So the democrats are getting more and more convinced that A is the absolute truth and B isn't because almost everyone they speak with agrees with them. And the regpulbicans are getting more and more convinced that B is the absolute truth and A isn't because almost everyone they speak with agrees with them. This problem appears everywhere more and more. And 2-party-systems, like the USA and UK, makes this effect even stronger. Because if you have 5 groups, for A, B, C, D & E and none of them has a majority, you have to talk with each other and find a compromise. In a 2-party system that isn't necessary. And the USA has the luck that Senate, House and President can have different parties as majority, the UK is even more f*cked. Replacing all current politicians in Senate, House, President, Governors, party leaders etc. would probably the best for the USA (and many other countries)
  13. Death is also a health issue, not a very nice one though But I can think of more health issues that can make him unfit; Anyway, I wouldn't be surprised if the next President, be it Trump or the Democratic nominee, won't fullfill his/her term, because of health issues. Most of the candidates will be above at least 75 and some of them above 80 at the end of the term. That is an age that a lot of people will have a lot of serious health issues. And I, of course, meant the Senate part of the impeachment process. I think it is very likely the house will convict him and the senate won't. Because what I said earlier in this threat. And I don't see the democrats alienating themself/ you can say the same about the Republicans. I fear for the USA that they are tearing themself apart in 2 groups, roughly: Democrats/Cities/coastal areas vs. Republicans/Rural/inland. And that isn't strange, since the needs and issues of those regions are really different. And issues you don't have, while somebody else does have them, are much more difficult to identify yourself with. And yes, of course I'm generalizing.
  14. Now I'm curious how much you earn On a more serious note, based on what is said and what I see/hear in the news here in Europe I'm quite convinced that Trump crossed one or more lines he shouldn't have crossed. But I also think it's true that, like he said himself, he can shoot somebody on the street and get away with it. There are 2 ways I see Trump leaving: 1. He has a health issue, so can't continue; 2. Republicans will stop supporting him because of a reason and will help getting him impeached. If they see he is losing, they will, like almost all politicians, just say they never really supported him
