Going by what's been written, I have to believe that Axis is either a troll, or just insane. No one can be this disconnected from reality and still be considered sane. Either way, I don't see any point in arguing. The sad thing being that his vote counts just as much as mine. Some days I think the Electoral College is a good idea.

If most people honestly think it's the lesser of two "evils", I cant imagine anything more evil than murdering unborn children, so there's that.

Axis,

You are a puppet. You have allowed those who would have control over you to believe that this one issue is more important than almost anything else, and that the "others" hold a view that is morally opposite. This is a lie. They feed you lies through every facet of your life. From television to family, friends and trusted mentors. Even though the subject may have no effect on your life and livelihood, they will make it an issue of paramount importance.

Why? So they can control you. To make sure that you never give power to someone else, even if that someone else is trying to fight for you. Stop allowing others to tell you what you should think.

Old people suck at this. I've explained to dozens how to cut and paste. Somehow years go by and, whether I show them keyboard shortcuts, right clicking or even using menus they still miss it.

People in their 60's today were in their 40's when computers became common in the workplace, and they were using things like WordPerfect at that time, which was all keyboard shortcuts. Unless they're getting senile, they've got no excuse for not knowing how to use a computer.

Can someone explain to me why "ashley" was #19 (and why it was #16 last year)?

People despise change and hate it without giving it time to grow on them.

While true, I don't think it's relevant in this case. Just look at Windows 7. It was a major UI change from XP, but was largely embraced as a step up from XP almost immediately. Most people liked the interface redesign, like Aero and the new taskbar. People like change when it's seen as an improvement.

What about the thousands of drones that are about to go airborne over US skies a few months from now?

It seems to me that American's don't really care about privacy. There's a few that will loudly protest, and some more that say they do, but most people will keep on posting their private lives on Facebook.

As most women in Japan are modestly proportioned there tends to be a large population of large breast fetishists.

Plenty of well-equipped women in Britain, but it seems to be a national obsession there as well.

It's not corporate lobbying. It's individuals expressing their right to free speech. Why do you hate the constitution?

This doesn't surprise me. One of the major reasons companies choose Linux is to keep costs down, so naturally they want to hire cheaper mid-level admins and programmers to support it. One of the problems is that I don't see many younger people getting into IT. Linux competence also requires a certain level of smarts and dedication that's not commonplace, and anyone who has it already has a job.

I've got to give credit to the Republicans this time. At least they aren't pretending they want an open internet. Their party platform just says outright that they don't care about protecting openness, except for what's in their own self-interest.

I would take Herman Monster as President versus Barrack Obama for another 4 painful years. Or Elmer Fudd, or Bugs Bunny even. They couldn't do worse than the current President. Obamacare, Solyndra, Fast and Furious, backstabbing Israel

Honestly curious how you think a Romney presidency would be better, and not worse.

Obamacare: based on Romney's plan. Now Romney has backed away from supporting it, but has offered no alternative. How will that be an improvement to the current healthcare problems?

Solyndra: Government backed subsidies for energy companies have a long history of support on both sides. I have not heard Romney promote stopping them. How will he be any different or an improvement?

Fast and Furious: Not even an Obama program. Why are you bringing this up? You honestly think the DOJ is going to suddenly stop doing stupid stuff under a new president?

As for Israel, I'm not sure what you're referencing, but can someone explain to me the hard-on conservatives have for Isreal? I honestly don't get it. We, the American taxpayers, give them billions of dollars of aid every year, and I don't know why.

Looks like political season is heating up at Blue's.

China's one child policy- no arms in the UK, penalties for fat people, gas is $10.00 a gallon to pay all the taxes for healthcare in the UK.

But that could never happen here- that's your next line right?

I don't see any facts about the US here. Do you base all your political views on fear and speculation? Personally, I prefer to have actual evidence before making a claim.

Edit: Looks like nin beat me to it.

Turning "The Hobbit" into a trilogy is silly at best.

They're pulling from the Appendices and Silmarillion as well. There's plenty of material there. Some of those stories could be movies in themselves.

Been happily gaming in 3D for a years now and loving it. I've played a bunch of PS3 titles. That's in the living room hooked up to a big screen DLP set, which has zero ghosting and no limitation on viewing angles or number of viewers.

My computer monitor is also 3D. It's passive, so it has some ghosting, but the glasses are feather weight. Platform games, like Portal, really benefit from 3D. The only problem I have is that my current machine isn't fast enough to render at the highest settings in 3D, but that's easily fixed with an upgrade.

what's worse was their userbase told them (sometimes very vocally) the updated site sucked, but they refused to listen. And look what it got them...

And just to show that some people don't learn their lessons, the Gawker sites have been doing the same thing over the past few months. They've redesigned to the point of unusability.

Meanwhile, Reddit, which could really use an interface re-haul, seems to be gaining in popularity.

Perhaps turning the bio-weapon black goo into incubators (or whatever) for eggs. And overgrowing the metal canisters and either turning them into resin or forming a big resin cocoon around them.

Most of the "plot holes" are people not understanding the movie, or complaints about Scott not explaining everything, which isn't a plot hole.

The cylinders were created by the Engineers to deliver the black goo. The eggs are laid by the Xenomorph.

**Spoilers**

The Xenomorph are the result of the facehugger implanting in an Engineer/Human. There aren't any facehuggers until a human gives birth to one. Direct infection by the black goo just seems to make their heads asplode. That seems to be the biological progression, but there's more to it than that, though, since there's a carved image of a Xenomorph in the cave.

The one plot hole I haven't seen a plausible explanation for is why David's head is still next to his body after the spaceship crash.

I don't see many people talking about their kids around here. Makes me wonder how many other members are DINKs in their 30's (or up).

How are circles better?

They're usable and intuitive. Circles don't feel tacked on like lists. It took me a long time to figure out how to even use lists. Google+ schema is based around your Circles. By default, you are just posting to the Circle.

I'm not worried about it going away. It's actually getting heavy usage in the professional areas.

I've not powered the thing on in like two months...and short of GTA5 (current E3 MIA), I see nothing on the horizon that interests me.

I'm glad to see you write this. I hadn't played anything except Rocksmith for the past few months. I was watching the E3 presentation last night, and it all looked so damned boring. Just more and more of the same thing. I was starting to think it was just me, and I was getting tired of gaming after all these years, but it looks like I'm not the only one unimpressed with what's being offered these days.
