Forum Topic "Should AR-15s be banned?"

Nullarc77 4 Builds 2 points 12 months ago

I am not a "Gun Owner" So to speak but that is simply because I am 15. But I have been raised around guns, I have been taught from a young age how to safely use guns. I have been taught that you never point a weapon at somebody if you don't intend to shoot them. Keep your finger straight if you don't intend to fire, And keep your weapon clean and ready even as you are clean and ready. So as a 15 year old who could shoot a quarter dead center at 100 yards with an AR-15, Here is my take.

First off you ban an AR-15 you must at least ban all weapons that use the same ammo, That being 223.

Second, banning one specific gun that is mechanically similar to dozens if not hundreds of others that use the same ammo is completely moronic. If you ban one you gotta ban them all.

Third, By forcing people like myself to give up weapons and actively coming to my home and taking them from my hands is the exact kind of tyrannical government that the second amendment was put in place to protect us from. If you take that away then the primary purpose of it's existence will be put into place.

Fourth, If people want to kill other people then they will. Taking away one means just forces the killer to be more creative. And it also takes away the means for the 99% of people who are decent, sane, law abiding people to defend themselves from the killer coming at them with a sword. If you try hard enough you can kill anyone with almost anything. I was taught from an early age to know how to defend myself, And it is a lot easier to defend yourself when you have a weapon. If I needed to defend myself and all I had was my PC then I would pick it up and start beating the crap out of whomever is attacking me.

And if you take away the rights of gun owners and try to take away their guns, Then what are you going to do when they say no and start putting holes through the people you send to take their guns. The military is not going to fight civilians. And what are you going to do now that you have banned all the guns and no longer have access to them to defend yourself from the angry gun owner who you just told to hand over all their guns. There is no way the anti gun people can win. If it comes to a civil war then how are the people who banned guns going to defend themselves?

Lastly as a personal note. If anyone tries to take my guns by force or any other means, I will protect myself and my rights with everything I have. Everything I have being a 12 gauge with a lot of ammo. So if anyone wants to take my rights I have a bucket of buckshot waiting for you. And if I run out of ammo there is always my knife collection.

Forum Topic "Why is Russia considered Europe for some?"

Nullarc77 4 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

True. I was just using the North America and Asia because it is a more drastic example and not many people know about it. If all it was required for 2 continents to be considered 1 was a small piece of land connecting them then we should have Euro-Amer-Afri-Asia. And if you build a really long bridge between the edge of South America and Antarctica then there would just be one giant continent that spreads across the earth. I seriously don't understand why they divided America into 2 continents. If it was because of culture like with EurAsia then South America should have started at Mexico. Maybe people just wanted 4 countries in North America. Who knows. Who cares.

Forum Topic "Why is Russia considered Europe for some?"

Nullarc77 4 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

Kinda. They used to be directly connected by the isthmus of Suez then the Suez canal was built. So yeah they are still connected in a way. But just because two continents are connected by a small strip of land does not mean they should be the same continent. If so then North America and Asia would be the same continent for part of the year when the Bearing Straight freezes over allowing land travel between the two continents via Alaska and Russia.

Forum Topic "Looking to upgrade an i5 4460."

Nullarc77 4 Builds 2 points 13 months ago

You are assuming they are trying to run at high setting. Which they did not say. I am simply saying that if they are getting close to 60fps then all they would need is a cpu upgrade since. And 1080p ultra wide is not much harder to run then standard 1080p. When I switched the only reason I lowered graphical settings in games was so I could get 75fps because my ultra wide has a 75hz refresh rate. But with a 4460 and a rx 480 they are more cpu limited then gpu limited.

Forum Topic "Looking to upgrade an i5 4460."

Nullarc77 4 Builds 2 points 13 months ago

Due to the high ram prices I do not recommend jumping to an entirely new platform. Getting something like an i7 4770k would give you decent boost. But they are kinda over priced considering their age if you buy new. And you won't be able to overclock with that board but they are the same price as the 4770 and the 4770k has a higher base clock.

If Nk did drop a nuke on the US they would first need to make an ICBM that can actually reach the US, And be able to get past our ICBM defenses. And if it somehow did land in the US(I am not talking about our land over in eastern Asia but if they did nuke our land over there the result would be the same) The US would go back and kick the crap out of them for the second time. The US is already 2 time World War champions and with how far back NK is technologically compared to the US, Becoming 2 time Korean war champions would be easy. And this time they would most likely not have the backing of Chinese soldiers. China may support them with resources but sending troops to fight the US troops would end up killing their economy because of how much of their economy exists because of the US.

Forum Topic "Why the lack of monorails in the usa?"

Nullarc77 4 Builds 2 points 13 months ago

Considering that most of the countries that use that form of public transportation are smaller then the average US state, It is effective there. But in a country where everything is so spread out, You can't really build a system that is not only cost effective for cross continental travel but also cost effective for the consumer. The US is the third largest country on the planet and the biggest part of it (Alaska) Is also the least populated by people per square kilometer. While big cities do have their own form of rial system being the subway system in places like NYC. France is the biggest European country(Not counting Russia because most of it's land is in Asia) and it is tiny compared the US. France is not that much bigger than Minnesota, But 66 millions people live in France while only 5 million are in Minnesota. So when the population is so spread out like Minnesota is, You can't really build a system that can be effective like it could in France. Plus like haribohungry mentioned US cities were designed for independent transportation. Meaning independent from the government. That is why they use cars for the most part. You don't need to wait for a train to show up. You can just go when you want. And when everything is so spread out compared to Europe, It is a better system.

There won't be that much of a difference in fps between the 570 and the 580, Not to mention the stupidly high prices on the 580s. Go for second gen ryzen instead. That will five you a bigger performance boost assuming you get at least a 6 core.

Forum Topic "Gaming and 4k video editing"

Nullarc77 4 Builds 3 points 13 months ago

I advise waiting until Ryzen Second Gen releases next month if you can wait. But if not then your build looks fine. Only thing I recommend would be a larger ssd. Something like this for a bit more will go a long way.

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/pk66Mp/silicon-power-slim-s55-240gb-25-solid-state-drive-sp240gbss3s55s25ae

EDIT: This will easily handle 1080p 60fps. In most games you will get more then 60 fps so if you plan on using sepperate monitors for gaming and video editing I advise a higher refresh rate monitor for gaming.

Forum Topic "Craigslist Add need advice"

Nullarc77 4 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

Yes. As jonuk76 stated all first gen ryzen chips have 2 quad core processors. They can just disable cores that are defective. Or in the case of the 1400 and below they disable an entire CCX. That is why the 1500x has 16mb of l3 cache and the 1400 has 8mb. In the case of the 1500x 2 cores on each CCX are enabled but on the 1400 one CCX is completely disabled. AMD's system is great for saving money. If only 1 CCX works but it's SMT is not functioning up to standards then it becomes an R3.

Forum Topic "Craigslist Add need advice"

Nullarc77 4 Builds 3 points 13 months ago

No. They made quad cores but some times a core or 2 are defective. They would turn the ones with 2 defective cores into dual cores and the ones with 1 defective core into tri core processors. They still do this.

On the one hand I can see where your dad is coming from. Letting a kid who is middle school who has nobody to help him build a computer is risky from his point of view. On the other hand him not letting you would be impeding your desire to learn about a field that could one day get you a good job. My father was willing to let me build a PC when I was 11, The only condition being that I get the money myself since my laptop at the time was only a year old. How much would the PC cost? Why won't he let build it instead of buying prebuilt?

Saying that miners are raising prices is a false statement, They are the cause but they are not raising the prices. The retailers are raising the prices because of the miners. The retailers know people will pay the increased prices so they raise them to make more money. You can still buy gpus at msrp directly from companies like evga but only while they are in stock. The problem is not the miners. Its the retailers like Newegg.

The first console my family got was a Wii. I remember the day we got it back in 2009. My father was on a business trip and my mother and older brother had just gotten back from the store. And when they came in they had a Wii. Other then the Wii sports games that came with it we didn't get many games for it until a few weeks later when we got lego Star Wars the complete saga. The second and last console we got was out xbox 360 back in 2012. It came with kennect which we got bored with after a few hours. We also had Madden 13. So I bought minecraft which up until then I had only played on mobile. We didn't get many other games for it. I only remember getting one other game for it and that was Star Wars the force unleashed, Until September 9 of 2016 when we got Halo 4. And since then I have loved Halo. It wasn't until I played the entire original Bungie trilogy that I realized how bad the gameplay of Halo 4 was by comparison. But its still fun to sit down and play with your brothers. So to answer to original question I would say the xbox 360 due to Halo. But my brothers and I did have a lot of fun playing Mario Kart on the Wii. It was our go too game until we got Halo 4.

I think they only "should" pay for it if they want you to go college and are pressuring you to. If not and its entirely your choice then why should they care? They already paid for everything you did for 19 years why should they pay a lot of money that you may or may not pay them back. You are not entitled to anything from your parents. If they want to pay for your college so be it, But nobody is entitled to their parents paying for their education. The less you owe other people the better.

Yeah the military is not for everyone. But my father was a Marine, My cousin was a Marine, My Great Grandfather was a Marine and fought in WW2 and the Korean war. I was just raised to think that a few years in the military is better then debt. But its not for everyone. Some people just want to get a job after college where they are making a lot of money. That's understandable. Just not my path.

Don't forget about the Coast Guard Academy. But yeah. If you get in to Annapolis I say go for it. Because you are willingly taking a free education in return for getting one of the most respected titles on this planet "Office in the United States Marine Corps or United States Navy". But you also gotta spend 6 years in the military. But in my opinion that is better then spensing 10 years paying off debt.

And no it wouldn't be fair for somebody else to pay higher taxes just so I can go college. If you don't go to college your chances of getting a really good job(Making more then 100k a year) Are extremely small. Most people right out of highschool makes less then 30k a year and to force them to pay the government even more money for a program that they didn't even want to use would be a stupid. I don't homeschooled families tax dollars should support public schooling. My parents already spend a lot of money on my education and I am sure your family did the same.

I see colege as a personal choice. The government already pays(And by that I mean the people pay) for education of minors. Once you are out if high school any further education is your choice and the tax payers should not be obligated to pay for it. My father went to bith engineering and medical school and was in debt for years because of it. But it provided him with the knowledge he needed to earn money and pay off his debt. It was his choice to ho to college and not the tax payers. My parents pay for public schooling through taxes and none of my sublings or myself have ever been public schooled. Besides once the government starts paying for you to go to college whats to stop them from telling you what clases to take. And if they do that then what is to stop them from telling you what job to take to "pay them back". The less government involvment the better. I would rather be in debt for years then to have my tax dollars go to other peoples college education. Some of it already is.

Forum Topic "What role did the USA play in WW1 & 2?"

Nullarc77 4 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

The US entered both wars provoked. In both cases they wanted to stay out of it since both wars were across on the other side of an ocean.

In the first world war known then as The Great War, The US entered to avoid Germany making an alliance with Mexico and giving Mexico the ability to sink US merchant ships heading to Europe. According to a German telegram that was intercepted by the British, if the US were to declare war on Germany, Then Mexico would declare war on the US and get the full backing of Germany, For the reasoning of helping Mexico take back the land it lost in the Mexican-American war. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zimmermann_Telegram There were a lot of other factors. Such as the sinking of the Lusitania, a British ship that 128 American passengers. It was sunk by a German U-boat, Little did they know that by sinking that ship they would give the Us another reason to attack Germany. By the time the US entered the war, The men that had been fighting were worn out from the war. However the US troops wanted a fight and were not worn down by the fighting that the rest of the countries had been enduring. And that tipped the scales in favor of the Allies, Forcing Germany to surrender. And earning Germany their first world war participation trophy. But those mean nothing.

Just like in the Great War, The US wanted to stay out of the war. That was until the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor and killed over 2400 Americans and sunk or run aground 18 US ships. So the US decided that being back to back world war champions would be a nice title to have and they entered the war. While they did fight a lot in Europe, The main goal was to get revenge for Pearl Harbor. The pacific theater was where most of the famous US battles took place in WW 2. Such as the battle of Iwo Jima where the United States Marine Corps with the support Naval artillery and Marine Corps and Naval air support, Invaded the islands. And is also that battle where the famous picture of US Marines raising the Stars and Stripes was taken.(My great grandfather was among these Marines that invaded the island). After they took control of the Island the Seabees came in and fixed the airfields, Providing a staging ground for air attacks against Japan. Another famous battle was the battle of Okinawa where Allied forces including the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, New Zealand, And Australia invaded the islands to provide a staging ground for attacks against the Japanese mainland which was only 550km away.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Iwo_Jima

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Okinawa

And then finally the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Which was the main cause of the Japanese surrender just 6 days after the second bomb was dropped. And they remain the only uses of nuclear weapons in a war.

I am not an expert on history so if I made a mistake here please correct me.
