    All rifles in canada were already limited to 5 round magazines (lanced or pinned). AR-15's were already restricted to range use only. Handguns were also range use only (10 round magazines maximum).

    I am impacted by this ban on my un-restricted M14, so I guess I need a new .308 "bolt-action" rifle.

    They also banned .50 bmg and 6.5 creedmor based on the last few lines of the order. Both were unrestricted.

    • Quake 2 - LAN parties, decent multiplayer, and extensive modding community, skins and maps. Hell people were producing talks shows inside the quake 2 engine. The demo scene was crazy too. Lithium, LMCTF, Rocket Arena 2 were my main jams.

    • Civilization 5 - I've played all the civ's since civ2 but civ5 I put an insane number of hours into.

    • Minecraft - Resisted minecraft for many years, but some friends setup a vanilla server when they started putting villages. Later I found FTB Ultimate and it was a whole new game. Project Ozone 2 titan mode is probably my fav mod pack.

    The energy and proof of work, is the labor that gives it value.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/8694dq/bitcoin_and_energy_consumption_rebuttals/

    I think there is higher priorities to concentrate on, such as.. overpopulation, city design, housing efficiency, vehicle travel, air travel,

    saw an article on this just last week,

    I have 3 kettlebells, 16kg, 24kg and 32kg. Favorite exercise is KB swings. I try and do at least 100 every workout. I'll pound out a set, then do a strength exercise, then pound out another set, rinse and repeat. Then go for a 30 minute jog with a stair climb near the end.
