Star Trek Liberals.
Liberals see themselves in the near future as akin to officers in a Star Trek ship.
On the Enterprise, a handful of superbly qualified specialists assigned themselves the lion’s share of responsibility for running the ship, carrying out the “prime directive,” and boldly going where no man had gone before. To viewers, the Enterprise seemed like a large vessel, but almost everyone apart from the show’s stars existed out of sight. You didn’t see much of them unless they became a necessary (and usually disposable) plot device. What was everyone else on the ship doing while Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, Bones, Scotty, Chekov, Sulu, and Uhura were getting into and out of interstellar scrapes? No one knows for sure, but they functioned as a kind of disposable service class, rarely noticed by the officers on the bridge.  
The rest of us, of course, would be the disposable crew.
Little do they realize that they would be disappeared before we would. Their new master

[Tutorial] Getting Started With Iray
Here is the tutorial on YouTube.

Here is a .pdf version.

This is for those of you who are looking at the interface going, "Now what?"  This covers how to convert existing shaders and how to set up lighting for your render. 
This is a text version that, while different from what I'm saying in the video word by word, contains the same information. 

To use this you need DAZ Studio 4.8 Pro or later.

Part 1: The Environment and Camera Settings
Before we get started, we need to check the environment, camera and render settings.
The Render Settings tab has an Editor and an Advanced section.  Advanced is where you check or uncheck your CPU and graphics cards.  I render with just my cards most of the time, and if you have good cards with lots of CUDA

Dear Yaoi Fangirls: I Hate You
It's true.
I hate yaoi fangirls, and I am one.
You may be looking at me with tears in your eyes right now and saying, "Why Chopstick... why?!"  
Well, I'm gonna tell you why.
1.  You're just writing about them because they're hot.
Let's just forget that they hated each other in the game.  Let's completely forget that both of them were completely straight and had loving girlfriends in the anime.  And heaven forbid I bring up the idea that they were really "just friends" in the manga.  I'm not really bitching about drabbles or crackfics so much as I am the fifty-page-long epics that completely ignore canon.  
Rinoa was just so whiny and Squall and Seifer were just SO KAWAII, you HAD to kill her or maim her or turn her into a ditzy bitch that Squall despised.  I hated her too, you know, but I'm not willing to actually sit down and write her out of the picture in such an abrupt and unlikely way it could be considered a cop-out.  For gods' sake, have pride in w

Now that the invaders have begun to arrive at our border, Mexico is wondering how it will take care of them all.
Shouldn't have let them past your own southern border. You expected President Trump to cave in, and now you have a big problem. Deal with it.
Donald Trump is a genius.
We should make our immigration laws mirror Mexico's, and listen to the world squeal.
So this Democrat is willing to nuke Americans to reach his goals?
To kill so many to get a few?…
If he isn't willing to use them, then why use them as a threat?
And he wants to be president.
What does a Liberal use for birth control?
Their personality.

Personal Quote: "The heck with this, I want to live!"

I was thinking; If Liberals don't believe in biological gender then why did they march for women's rights?

I was thinking; If women do the same job for less money, why do companies hire men to do the same job for more money?

I was thinking; Since only 11 million people have Obama-Care, how will 24 million people die if it is repealed? Will an additional 13 million people be randomly shot?

I was thinking; We should stop calling them all 'Entitlements'. Welfare, Food Stamps, WIC, ad nausea are not Entitlements. They are taxpayer-funded handouts and shouldn't be called Entitlements at all. But, Social Security and Veterans Benefits are Entitlements because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

I was thinking; If you rob a bank in a Sanctuary City, is it illegal or is it just an Undocumented Withdrawal?

I was thinking; After the London 'Lone Wolf' terrorist attack, government officials arrested at least eight other 'Lone Wolves' who had conspired with the original 'Lone Wolf' in planning the 'Lone Wolf' attack. Why do they tell us even though all involved are Muslims, you can be assured that the 'Lone Wolf' attack has nothing at all to do with Islam, just like the other 1,000-plus 'Lone Wolf' attacks by Muslims, are completely unassociated with Islam?

I was thinking; Why is each ISIS attack now a reaction to Trump policies, but all ISIS attacks during Obama's term were due to Climate Change and a plea for jobs?

I was thinking; If Muslims want to run away from a Muslim country, does that mean they are Islamophobic?

I was thinking; If Democrats don't want foreigners involved in our elections, why do they think it's all right for illegals to vote?

I was thinking; Is the DNC is mad at Russia because it 'thinks' they are trying to manipulate our elections, or because Russia is exposing that the DNC is manipulating our elections?

I was thinking; How did the Russians get Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the DNC to steal the Primary from Bernie Sanders? How did Russia get Donna Brazile to leak debate questions to Hillary Clinton in advance of the debates?

I was thinking; Why is it that Democrats think Super delegates are fine, but they have a problem with the Electoral College?

I was thinking; If Donald Trump deleted all of his emails, wiped his server with Bleachbit and destroyed all of his phones with a hammer, would the Mainstream Media suddenly lose all interest in the story and declare him innocent?

I was thinking; If Hillary's speeches cost $250,000 an hour, how come no one shows up to her free speeches?

I was thinking; If you don't want the FBI involved in elections, don't nominate someone who's being investigated by the FBI.

Thanks for the reminder.
Getting old sucks!
Old enough to know how to do it right.
To old to work up the energy.
