Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 1/24/2017

Stalking and Trolling with Virtual Reality

Rec Room is a half-game, half-social space for Vive and Oculus Touch, and it already has problems with harassment. A man trying to play charades captured video of a now-notorious player called Handibot groping him. Players are divided on whether this is scary or funny. Meanwhile, less ambiguous forms of harassment have cropped up: in the Steam forums for Rec Rooma player reports being sexually harassed three times. They want to know how to block other players.

Meanwhile, Jordan Belamire's account of being sexually harassed in the game QuiVr made headlines late last year. Belamire had just gotten the hang of using the Vive to play the shoot-zombies-with-arrows game, when a guy decided to turn her into his prey: "Even when I turned away from him, he chased me around, making grabbing and pinching motions near my chest. Emboldened, he even shoved his hand toward my virtual crotch and began rubbing." Admittedly, the avatars in these games look like cartoons. We still have a long way to go before talking to another person in VR feels the same as talking to a person IRL.

Hahah. Sean Spicer and his problem with Dippin Dots. 

ANNDDDD this is a great post from Brains and Eggs- I won't be voting for Democrats again 

Turns out Aetna deceived the public about why it quit the Affordable Health Care aka Obamacare

Have to admit I like seeing a Nazi punched in the face

I 100percent cosign what Socratic Gafly says here, parliamentary representational government, and do away with these ridiculous hearings.

And, then, get rid of the stupidity of cabinet confirmation hearings. Everybody up there who's a highly controversial nominee lies anyway. It's all kabuki theater, per the heading.

So, let the likes of a Prez Trump nominate these people, without confirmation hearings, and, without off-year elections, the GOP House would have to face the music. (Getting rid of midterm elections in general is part of the genius of my idea.)
