    Not at all, unless you use it to dig into dark web or open shady websites (which I strictly don't recommend). Tor is just a modified Firefox after all, it's not more or less prone to viruses than original Firefox. It just allows you to reach places where you are more likely to get viruses.

    I don’t think I’ve ever hated a job so much in my life. God this place sucks, I hate Oregon.

    Tor is a network, not a browser alone, in that network there is a lot of infected computers as people download shady things, also kids try to be badass by trying to cause harm to others and as in that network computers talk to each other, all sort of unwanted code gets passed quite easily.

    Actually no two clients should ever communicate directly with each other, there is technically 0 malware risk associated with tor rather than plain http, they're very functionally equivalent in that regard

    It seems like disaster movies always someway have bad CGI, like Geostorm and 2012.

    2012 has pretty great CGI if you ask me.

    Sure it was unrealistic in a logical sense buy visually its pretty great.

    Well, I mean if you pick it frame by frame, it doesn't look that great sometimes. Also, Prius in this scene.

    Definitely pleases the anti-Prius car guys.

    Well, I guess we can say 2012 is one of those movies with good CGI moments and bad CGI moments. I think VeyronEB is very much correct. It's a love it or hate it type of film, but I find it undeniable that the visuals are absolutely impressive, same being said for the score.

    Here's a particular moment where you can tell it's CGI. The Ford Explorer would have much more transparent windows than that.


    Also, IMO, 2012 had some of the best limousine action in a movie. Another film I'd say has some of the best limo action would be True Lies.

    To be honest, I think the best CGI scenes where destruction is happening is Las Vegas. I guess it's the fact that it's shorter than the LA scene, not including dialect with characters.

    I just saw an add for a 6ft wood boat kit that really makes me wonder about startups and people who don't know anything about boating... $1k, 6ft, electric trolling motor. I think it is a stupid idea but it was so cute that I have spent a couple minuets trying to mentally justify its existence. I have come to the conclusion that if I was a wealthy person with a large pool or a small lake nearby I would like to own a small fleet of them. In every other scenario I can think of it is better to just get an actual boat.

    My dad has a Land Rover Discovery so the whole road outside his house is completely coated in an even layer of oil. He only gets it changed once a year because it leaks out as fast as he can top it up. The best part is there's not really even anything wrong with it; it's just because it's a Land Rover.

    Just went window shopping for a racing wheel upgrade, which turned out depressing. Thanks to the exchange rate, shipping, and taxes, I'd be spending $1,500 minimum for anything from Thrustmaster or Fanatec with the features I want. There's a ridiculously huge gap in the market.

    In all seriousness though, let me say what I think of this, and if I get banned, that's just going to make this forum's rep worse.
    Deleting arguments is a dumb move, it shows that you're the kind of person that hides all of that stuff behind your back and spray it all over when that person doesn't realise.
    If you have something to say to someone, say it.
    Everyone will have disputes with each other, what's wrong with it? It's an important part of life, not everything will be sunshine and rainbows.
    So just deleting these.. Is it the goodgreatestofideas?
    And if the person who I was arguing with deleted my post?
    Ok that's fine, the person in the argument stops the argument, not the person spectating.

    Well, not all countries have as much of disasters/attacks as much as countries like USA, Japan, Russia, France, Germany, and a few others. Places like Canada and Iceland don't have so much terrorism.
