Tell me what features you want to see on a new, improved Opchan.

I already have a big ol' list, and the platforms we're considering already do some things, but I want to hear your wildest imageboard fantasies.

I'm not really going to be addressing whether or not they're feasible here, but I am reading everything.

Stands to reason but do you have any source to back that very specific claim?

Oh and to quote one Wilhuff Tarkin:

"I maintain that the effectiveness of the Star Destroyer stems from not only its massive firepower, but from its
size. When [mouthbreathing right brainers] look at a Star Destroyer and then compare it to the craft which might be mustered to attack it, they have a tendency to dismiss such a notion as suicidal rather than approach the problem tactically."

Been a while since we had us a good roll call. I'm sure some old trips lurk here, would be nice to hear if they're still alive.

to keep things interesting, it would be great to have a thread for all the old copypasta. Like shooting girl scouts delivering cookies, Peter Cottontail "get your fucking weapon if you don't want to die" Easter pasta, any of the old Opie stuff whatever it includes.

I got a couple I'll be posting, feel free to join in.

I forget my old trip.

I'm still alive (somehow.)

Went to school on a full scholarship for Chemistry (lol). Currently working with DFT simulations of novel nanomaterials.

Also, did I mention that I somehow am not dead yet?

Just like Staos, I also forgot my trip lol

But holy shit...it's been forever since I've been here...

Legal trouble was dealt with and all was well if anyone remembers that mess. Have a few more handguns than I used to, a few more AR's than I used to, and that's about it...

Bought a Harley, broke my elbow while riding said Harley...

Other than that not much else has happened in the few years since I was last here...

File 157154574394.png - (15.84KB , 575x473 , 401k-plan-contributions-978.png )
The short of it is, a 401k is a retirement plan where you contribute money before taxes. This has the result of lowering your taxable income, but when you retire you then have to pay taxes on it.

Example: You make 50k a year. You put 10k a year in. You only have to pay taxes on the 40k of income you didn't put into retirement. However, when you get old and retire, then you have to pay taxes on it as income.

Example 2: Your employer matches half of what you put in. So each year you + the company are putting in 15k.

The actual retirement account is run by some company and typically goes into a stock market fund of some kind so that they can grow... unless it's 2008 and the "great recession" just destroyed your retirement fund. Those dudes are still working today.

If you're really savvy you can just put in whatever percentage is required to get the company match and then do your own Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or just play the stonks and gamble with it.

My new coworkers suck. They're middle aged men that just talk about sportsball and whatever their dumb kids are doing.

> today, my 8 year old daughter knocked down a girl in soccer, she's such a badass
> that's cool man, I repainted a room in the house
> did you see how we did last night? that guy ran with the ball and later we stopped that other guy from running with the ball

I'd heard from another guy that coworker would over torque a certain thing, so when I saw him installing it I told him the torque spec of 33 ft/lbs, then showed him the documentation for it.

> well I've been torquing it to 48 ft/lbs for 8 years and nothing bad has happened

The classic: "That's the way we've always done it."

That mentality pisses me off so much. With my old group we were always trying new shit to try to do a better job for the customer. Now anytime I bring up something it gets shot down like a Chinese jet fighter.

Either way, there is several trillion dollars locked up in 401(k) plans, and Congressmen of both parties are just drooling over the idea of confiscating 100% of it and using it to bail out failed state pension funds, then using whatever might remain to write welfare checks for the people they want to bring in to replace you. Interns and legal teams have for the past 25+ years been continuously working on semi-plausible pretexts and trial balloons are lofted every few years. "Everybody has to have skin in the game." "The State of Illinois made these people a promise." "We have to impose some responsibility." "It's just a small tax, you rich bastards won't miss it." "Wealthy retirees have to pay their fair share." "We have to use these resources to fight 'global warming,' it's an emergency."

Oh, yes. It's coming.

New record: 99 hour week. 7 day period. The job was actually 9 days and 121 hours.

Shit kept breaking. I don't know who brought that curse upon the site, but it was bad. We'd fix one thing and another would go... like 7 times. By the end we were praying to the turbine goddess Braytonia for help.

And then I got home and The Outer Worlds had an update, and I lost my shit.

I seriously need to find a normal job.

Ok I'm being a bit overly dramatic here, but for the first time since moving to VA (and now currently looking at the prospect of staying in VA for the next 5 or so years; my wife got her dream job at a newspaper and I want to help her cultivate her career like she has helped me) I am actually worried about my 2a and frankly 1a rights (maybe I am just constantly hearing the furthest left craziness related to 1a stuff as I am on a college campus 50% of my waking hours). NPR didn't allieviate my fears this morning. I forsee a lot of frankly asinine bills being pushed through in the name of "common sense" and "social justice".

I guess I need to start buying standard capacity magazines and 80% recievers before all of the fun stuff gets banned/restricted...

On the other side of things I think a full Republican rule wouldn't be much better. Single party rule is never a good thing.

Yep, shit sucks. Every political cycle whoever is in office fucks it up so bad the other side wins the next time.

I'm dealing with California bullshit now. Most of my rifles are disassembled until I can make them "featureless" and gasoline is 2 bux a gallon more than the east coast.

I moved to VA not too long ago. Similar deal to OP. Wife got into grad school in the area and fortunately I found it relatively easy to find comparable work. Similar exposure to the college campus and well-to-do environment too but I'm keen to remember that it's a large state and it's major metropolitan areas that typically lean left are few. I don't advocate for either mainstream political party because bipartisanship is a false dichotomy only subscribed to by non-thinkers. I think the Republican-leaning constituents were lulled into a false sense of security by who occupies the White House and the party responsible for preventing that laziness failed to do so.

I've already started looking at investing in more magazines since that always seems to be a "feature" the gun control movement likes to target. I may look to increase my ammunition stock too since there's so much talk of limiting those purchases or making them restricted to FFLs. I may look to invest in more stripped (or 80%) AR lowers to make builds easier in the future without breaking the bank now, but that also assumes uppers don't become controlled. That said, I think I have my bases for AR uppers covered for any possible barrel length and popular caliber but investing in more is a relatively simple way of flexing more capability out of one gun that doesn't show up on "gun purchase" statistics.

  Going on a Ride-Along with the Australian Police - The Jim Jefferies Show
2:46 In Australia, 22 police officers were killed on the job between 2003 and 2016, but last year, in 2018, 55 police officers in the US were shot and killed.

The annual number of US police officers killed has fallen by more than 65 percent since 1976, but the number of people US police kill remains relatively high, at around a thousand people per year. Last year police shot and killed 998 people, 11 more than the 987 they fatally shot in 2017. In 2016, police killed 963 people, and 995 in 2015. About 54 percent of those killed have been armed with guns and 4 percent unarmed.

Four years in a row, police nationwide fatally shoot nearly 1,000 people: https://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/four-years-in-a-row-police-nationwide-fatally-shoot-nearly-1000-people/2019/02/07/0cb3b098-020f-11e9-9122-82e98f91ee6f_story.html

But the #1 spot goes to Venezuela with 5287 killed out of a population of 32,381,000 in 2018, making that a rate per ten million people of 1632.7. More than 53 times the rate of the United States cops gunning down people.
