    Got a new mouse the other day, MX Master 2S.
    It is pretty good. One feature I especially like is that there is a little electronic actuator that you can flick on or off to leave the scroll wheel free spinning. Had the mechanical variant of it on my old M705 Marathon mouse, but the great thing about the updated version is that it automatically flicks on and off when you scroll fast with it engaged. That means that even as I start scrolling past a @dropdatwat self-pity diatribe, I can easily accelerate past it in a jiffy without manually disengaging the scroll wheel.

    Next time you think of drop's slimy chode, add to it that he jerks off with the same hand used to grip a crusty 12 year old mouse where bacteria colonies wage war for supremacy under the clickers.

    Scrolled right past this post without reading it, buttery smooth.
    If you hadn't quoted me, I'd be blissfully unaware of it.

    It used to be 2000 every 2-3 years at most to boot. Now even exploited chinese labourers can afford a pc.

    they probably built the fucking thing

    now they are in a world where their own labors have reduced the cost of consumer goods, on average, world wide, to the point where even maybe some kenyan could get a smartphone soon

    Hell, Indians have smartphones now, and it is hilarious.
    The countryside hill people haven't caught on to the fact that not everything sent to them on Ganeshachat or whatever their fucking instant messaging is called is true.
    If I had a head for languages, I'd be learning fucking urdu right now and searching out random Indian peoples numbers to fuck with the fuckers by spreading outlandish rumours.

    Have fun constantly cleaning under the scroll wheel if you ever want to use the mouse 3 button, or swap the POS micro switch with something decent.
    Who am I kidding, it'll be stuck with encrusted cum and smegma by now, and you are to inept to do basic DIY.

    Even hill-dwelling Indians aren't retarded enough to fall for that.
    They might be shitting in the streets (where streets are available) but they do have a civilization of sorts.

    Really old stuff is fun. I had a laptop that was so old I had to download youtube videos if I wanted to watch youtube because it couldn't handle playing in browser.

    It takes at least 20+ years to see any ROI on anything that you have bought. I still have a Dell Desktop from 1998. I'm running OwnCloud on it and PopCorn Time. I literally have my own version of Netflisk on it. I've amassed tons of movies and TV series and still haven't maxed out an external 1TB USB drive. Most of the stuff I have on there, you won't find anywhere. Where are you gonna watch some Real Ghost Busters cartoons or DuckTales--NOWHERE! Truth be told they're just files, but still. All this is running an old ass computer that costed maybe $300 back in the day and like another $100 for the 1TB back in 2012.

    Now the real value of things I have is the content, however, If I had to do it again today...okay maybe I could do it for $30 on a pine64....true...but you know what...I saved $30-45., because I didn't have to. Think about that. After 22 years...I'm $40 ahead. That is ROI my friend.

    Keep that computer around man, give it a few years, and you'll be reaping the benefits of your investment like me.
