I just use my mouse directly on my desk. Yeah, I'm that savage.

That would be my preferred method, but the desk I have, the surface is all fucked up and the mouse's camera can't handle it.

Speaking of mice, can anyone recommend me a decent gaming mouse for <$50? Preferably without any stupid fucking LEDs

I think at least Liquid and I use Razer Deathadders. I like it, even if it does have a light on it. You might be able to disable that though.

I don't recommend the Deathadder AT ALL. Mine is in fucking shambles. I've managed to keep it together via opening it up and jury rigging the shit out of the middle button mechanicals but it wants to be dead right now. The left button double clicks occasionally too, so I have to get rough with it to keep it single clicking. Next brand I'm going to try when this one finally dies beyond saving is SteelSeries, but my expectations are low. Logitech and Razer are both now permanently on my shit list.

How long have you had it for? The complaint about the bearing inside the scroll wheel wearing out usually starts after a year of use, which is about how long it took mine to give up. I literally had to glue a piece of tape to it to get it to latch on.

Before you I think, or about the same time. Got it on/around Black Friday in 2013 I believe.

Well, when you see a group of people/things as literal, pure evil, you might have some crazy things to say about them.

Cats are so dope. Hopefully they are chill, and not just total assholes.

They seem mostly chill. They all took turns hissing at Sam and now they're all hiding. Nothing out of the ordinary. No aggression. There's a really fat white and black fluffy one that keeps trying to come out of hiding but as soon as Sam trots over to say hi she runs back to their hiding spot.

It stinks a little bit like kitty poopy in here now tho, so I think I am going to investigate their hiding spot and make sure there wasn't an accident...

Yea u might need to get another litterbox, because cats have a hard time sharing poo-spots with cars they aren't comfortable with.

I'm increasingly distressed to observe a new trend among my friends/peer group on Facebook where people think it's ok share their plans for Netflix & chillin'.

Talkin about it on social media ought to be doe. I'm also not convinced all of these people actually know what it means either, based on some baffling context.

That makes it even better! If they mean they're actually just going to watch something on Netflix and chill out that's way better!

My peer group has finally gotten so old that they've lost touch with what's hip, but they're in that awkward phase where they don't realize it yet so they begin making fools of themselves like this.

Like really, one girl is goin on about Netflix and chillin with her amazing boyfriend but the context is that she's incredibly laid up and ill atm and he's pampering her with sickness care/tlc/sappy relationship stuff, so I'm like, wait... You're too sick to do anything and yet you're having crazy sex still? Something doesn't add up.

I'd say it's time to move the line back but most of these were nailed from 2-4 feet behind it already. They should just play on courts the size of a soccer pitch to knock some wind out of these specimens.

I don't get how nerds can get so up their asses about spoilers, yet listening to the "best moment" award for Giant Bombs GotY (for all intents and purpose "best wtfspoiler") it made me want to play about half a dozen games I otherwise wouldn't even have given a fuuuuuck about. The story in Blops 3 and the ending of Starcraft 2 sound SO fucking dumb!

Me and my dad just finished disassembling a coffee bean roaster and we are going to Milwaukee to set it back up, imma find where liquid lives, throw random shit down his chimney or some shit, write pingas on his door
If you find a man naked while playing the guitar badly and singing in the most annoying highest pitch voice in Rust, its probably me.

So Apple is refusing to unlock this terrorist's phone for fear of setting a precedent that will allow the government access to the personal information and data of literally EVERY person with a cell phone and people are up in arms about this. People fucking baffle me. This is how the Patriot Act happened.

The best part of Lionhead Studio shuttering, is reading the outpouring of fan-tears sad that the studio responsible for their beloved Fable games is now kill.

I don't know what kind of rock people have to be living under to think anything positive or unique about Fable games, but I'd like to use that rock for the next year's worth of election politics, pls.
