    BinaryWork reacted to cp702 in Is it safe?   
    Probably, but I'd advise against it, and only do it if nothing else is plugged into that power strip. The extension cord is likely not rated to supply however many ports are on the power strip, and chaining together things that each increase the number of power outlets increases the risk of plugging too many things in, which is definitely a fire hazard. From what I can tell, the Alienware 18 adapter is 330 watts, which is more than most devices; many cheap extension cords aren't great to use long-term with that kind of load, and plugging more into the power strip (which is likely to be tempting) takes it to "definitely a bad idea."

    Some of this depends on how far it'll have to stretch and what kind of extension cord it is. It also might be better to plug the computer into the extension cord, and plug that into the power strip.

    As a general rule of thumb, you should never plug a port-multiplying device into another port-multiplying device; it's too easy to accidentally overload something when doing that. Port-multiplying devices should really go straight into the wall, especially if you plan on using this long-term.

    I honestly disagree with this, I recall playing Grand Theft Auto (the original) on my PS1 when I was very young (I was born in '97, you do the math). I've always been around violent games growing up and have only just been at the "legal" age to play these kinds of games since last year (Australia has only recently introduced the R18+ rating for video games, before then heavily violent games were straight up banned or thrown a MA15+ rating, GTA being one of these games), IMO it's up to the parents to decide what their children can and cannot play regardless of that child's age. 
     
    Back to the original topic at hand though, you could ask for an allowance. Do some chores for your parents, get say $10 every week, it'll soon add up. In addition to this you could also mow lawns, wash cars, walk pets, etc for a bit of extra cash. Just don't do a half arsed job otherwise nobody will want you to do anything for them.

    I don't think regular NYPD officers *have* Tasers; I'm pretty sure they're restricted to ESU and sergeants. Regular NYC cops have a pistol, baton, maybe pepper spray (not sure between baton/pepper spray), and that's it - the rank and file doesn't have shotguns or rifles in their car, and aren't issued Tasers.

    In general, Tasers are almost never universally issued in a big department - they require special training, and that takes time and money.

    I used to live in NYC. If something happens in a populated or busy area in NYC I can guarantee that within 30 seconds of your call at least 5 cops will respond. The regular patrol officers have a gun and either a baton or pepper spray. The tasers are only for ESU I believe. Ive seen a street shut down for things lesser than this. On note of there response to civilians they had officers keeping them a decent distance back from the main line of officers and the perp. They also had a couple cars on the sides of the street so that other police vehicles could get through without hitting a civilian. I wouldn't say this was an outstanding job, but they did good.

    If the perp was wielding a knife, he/she was wielding a weapon. That does warrant deadly force if the responding officer(s) decided it to be a lethal situation.

    As stated above, if you have high poly cars you will have trouble running LCPDFR & GTA. Try using default or low poly cars.

    BinaryWork reacted to cp702 in Really, 13 year old died Because....   
    Based on what I can tell, the officer absolutely should have shot him; it was the right call, among a lot of unenviable options. If you're holding something designed to look like a gun, you want to make it completely clear that it *isn't* a gun. If a cop draws a gun on you and issues orders, you follow them. If you point something that looks like a gun at a cop, he has to decide whether he is willing to risk death on the off chance it's a fake. The cop didn't shoot a guy with a BB gun. The cop shot someone with what was apparently a rifle. He had literally no way of knowing it was a fake; there's a reason self-defense law doesn't ever worry about whether someone was an actual threat to your life (the standard is that a reasonable person in your position would *think* there's an imminent risk of death or grievous bodily harm; the standard is never that such a risk actually exists).

    I think you guys are just paying attention to him being justified.. The fact is, this young boy died due his ignorance yet it doesn't mean he "deserved" it. No one deserves to be killed. Yes the cop was justified, but can this 13 year old boy have some respect?
     
    So let's try not to bash the boy too much... RIP
