Oh God, another earthquake just struck near Fukushima
We're all gonna die!!! December 21st, bitches...it's coming.
Another one, on 12/7? Really? Well, ain't Karma a B_@#$&H!! Payback for Pearl Harbor and the invasion of China and other parts of Asia and the Butan Death march of US and Brit soldier.
I so do not care.
You'll care as you're dying of radiation poisoning, R2.
Earthquakes will happen in the Fukushima region until the continental plates shift course, it's a subduction zone and inherently unstable.
What the fuck they were thinking putting a nuclear reactor there, I don't know.
But r3, I get to watch them die first....cry me a river....
Yeah, it's not as if Amuricans ever did anything even sorta bad during wars. WE never raped, stole anything, or take land from other people. Moron.
I'M TOTALLY FREAKING OUT NOW!
r7, are you in Japan?
So, I haven't heard a thing about it but I know a 9.0 is expected under Toyko in the not too distant future.
That's not what r2 ever claimed r6.
Send messages there then instead of the wanky "stay safe NYC" which you fall over yourselves to say. how about "stay safe Philippines?". or stay safe Gaza?
Americans bitching about pearl harbour.....that's funny. Bitch away bitches.
R4, there are a number of nuclear reactors in the U.S. that sit on fault lines. That's been one of my biggest concerns about them.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
