I definitely appreciate the support for these notes. However, when I mentioned
that it was suggested, the suggestion came from Lasher. When the big boss
suggests something to you, you tend to heed his suggestion. Until he's fine
with more notes promoting free game downloads, I'm going to follow his
suggestion.

Why pay pennies for new, amazing games when you can just
visit http://sarien.net/ and play old sierra games via your browser.

I recently used it to replay through Police Quest again.  It
has built in mulitplayer, which cracks me up.

I don't know who complained to you about this, but I wish they hadn't.
I would much rather read your posts here than sign up for another email list.

I find greater value in these notes, where, even beyond the material content, the
message is coming from you, a member of a community who want to share things

And what about those that might be new to Aard & haven't heard of humblebundle?
What about their children? OH WON'T SOMEBODY PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!

Also, if I'm on and I see the free game I'm posting a note about it. Not gonna
lie, I think it's awesome to spread the word about free games in a market where
scummy publishers paywall the hell outta their product and force you to spend
hundreds to get where you need to in order to "have fun".

On the subject of good video game deals, check out https://chrono.gg/ as well.
It has a different game each day, usually a lesser-known title, for pretty deep
discounts (usually 70-80% off).  It also has a system where you log in once a
day to see the new deal, and get some coins that can be used to "buy" other
games.
 
Most are smaller indie titles, but there are some like Reigns, Five Finger
Death Punch, Tower of Guns, and Cook Serve Delicious to name a few.

It's been suggested that those interested in future free games from
HumbleBundle probably have already signed up to receive the notifications. If
not, you can do so quickly at http://www.humblebundle.com. Additionally, Origin
has its own free game offers on their site, http://www.origin.com. Origin's
games are under the "On The House" option.

I will not be posting future free game notifications, and no one should post in
my stead. But definitely watch for them. HumbleBundle is pretty nice to get
into, as well, since you can get hundreds of dollars' worth for very little
cost.

Here's what the game is about, if you're interested. Escobar beat me to posting
it. Grr.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Brütal Legend is an action-adventure that marries visceral action combat with
open-world freedom. Set in a universe somewhere between Lord of the Rings and
Spinal Tap, its a fresh take on the action/driving genre, which in this case
is full of imitation cover bands, demons intent on enslaving humanity and Heavy
metal tunes. Featuring the talents of comedian, actor and musician, Jack Black
as super roadie Eddie Riggs, as well as cameos by some of the biggest names in
metal music it's a wild ride in the belly of the beast that is not to be missed
by gamers and Metalheads alike.

People still think their silly AR-15 can defeat the US military.
the only thing assault rifles that hold lots of bullets is good for is killing
a shitload of other civilians or kids in an elementary school.
America will never change, only become more violent, thus making people want
more guns, thus increasing the violence, thus increasing more guns. and so on.
Frankly I'm numb to mass killing. I don't even give a shit anymore because
you can't change their minds. I give up. Kill away, America.

Just find the seller you got them from and convince them they're not the same

Reply to: Note 293 posted by Impurifan

We want elected officials to readily prosecute Governors and other
office holders for bribes, corruption, etc. DAs reporting to these people
would present a conflict of interest.

Next, there's no reason to think that appointed DAs would be less prone
to abuse of prosecutorial discretion than elected DAs. In fact, being
isolated from your voting public and beholden to one person or party
likely makes you more corruptible.

Lastly, I think this touches on your larger issue - prosecutorial discretion.
But the role prosecutors play is vastly different than that we expect
from our judges. Judges should be impartial arbiters, but just as defense
attorneys are advocates for their defendants, prosecutors are advocates for
the State and its laws. They are charged with upholding justice and your local
bar will scream bloody murder about apparent abuses.

Moreover, discretion helps keep the system running. We need prosecutors to be
able to dismiss certain cases when the evidence doesn't warrant a trial, or to
offer plea deals and reductions. Not only can this be done in the interest
of justice (example: most DAs set up local programs for first time drug
offenders such that if they do some community service, the case will be
dismissed) but it's also the grease that keeps the system from exploding into
an unmanageable disaster. Dockets would explode if there was no incentive
for people to plead guilty - and if you really want a trial, that's still
your right.

Just realized too that you may want the history behind it, but I can't offer
that. What I can say is I am familiar with a couple cases involving an
elected Sheriff's ability to hire and fire deputies at will and without cause.
In these you can cite cases at common law going back to the English system
that grant Sheriff's the absolute right to make political decisions and
exercise discretion as they see fit, so long as it doesn't violate some other
law (which today would be for race, as example). I think the independence of
prosecutors can likely be traced back to the same principle.

The US has so many elected offices that people joke about electing dogcatchers.
At least, I think it's a joke...

With so many elected offices, the ordinary voter surely can't keep track of
them all. This leads to a bunch of offices that are effectively decided by a
few people in an opaque process, where any eventual incompetence and/or
corruption by the official can be disclaimed by other elected representatives
on the grounds that it is an elected office and they can't really fix it.

Ironically, this means that the system becomes less democratic. At least in
other systems the people can hold elected executives responsible for their
poor choices of appointees.

(And if the voters don't hold the executive responsible... one might say
the country reaps what it sows...)

I kind of get it.  Elites can be helpful.

but 2017 in the age of identity mobs and social media... seems
like elected DAs are prone to miscarriages of justice.  shouldnt
they just be appointed to one time 10 year term, which seems
to be as long as any of them are in the job...
