uh... what? where did i mention anything about MIC? i was just talking about building infrastructure to move water from where it's in excess to where it's needed. let's keep the crazy on the low end for now ok? i've had enough of it IRL at the moment.

water isn't a huge problem for the country as a whole; just need the infrastructure to transport it, which i suspect would be cheaper than building dozens of desal plants. we get most of our water adequately from rainfall and runoff and deficits can be made up by transporting excess from areas with high amounts, like the north and NE this winter.

desalination will always be expensive. it's not like it's a new technology that needs to mature. economies of scale will only help a little bit, but if we relied on that california food prices would still be sky high. also climate scientists predict a strong el nino event this winter which means abnormally high rainfall for the SW.

where did you read he wasn't a replicant? i've read interviews with scott where he stated deckard was a replicant, and the director's cut makes that very clear.

in this strict case, yeah. but if this good deed goes unpunished, it almost certainly encourages the seller to see how far he can push it before he gets some pushback. better now than when he's in some definite legal hot water like selling OEM CPUs as retail.

I thought the name Tex Murphy rang a bell... Mean Streets.

I'm old.

mean streets was probably my first ever pc game. great, great achievement for its day, and still unique in many ways today.

i played the demo of tesla effect and i was really rather disappointed. it didn't have the depth of exploration of previous games, nor the complex conversation systems. i already bought it though, so here's to hoping the full game has much more complexity.

it better not be of old age either. he better bite the dust at least attempting to shoot first even if his palsy prevents him from squeezing the trigger in time.

I dunno. 1-3 were pretty gawd-awful. Everyone on my Facebook feed are losing their crap over Harrison, Hamill and Fisher being in the new film. I know what they're visualizing, but that's not what they're going to get on film. These folks are old and way out of shape.

If it was my movie to make, I would do something completely different and recast everyone. I would pull a move like Abrams did with Star Trek and make my own movie. I know fans of the old series dislike the new Star Treks, but I really enjoy them on their own.

Yeah, that's my thought: no need to bring back the oldies, just make a new movie in that universe with new actors.

the future will always be, as will star wars, but we only have the original three for a short time. they NEED to be in a sendoff movie.

one glaring omission; no lando in the new cast!

This looks like I'll be buying it for $9.99 or less... is there even a party anymore, or is it basically a single character game?

I'd watch that gameplay trailer but it requires a login to youtube? bleh.

Also, I am amazed so many people still dislike Origin. It's about as invasive as Steam is, at this point. I only start either of those when I'm actually going to play a game on their services. Plus EA keeps basically giving away games on Origin for nothing. Oh well.


why wouldn't it have party options? are you really that dense you'll just make shit up to hate? it's already been shown in gameplay vids that you'll have a party.

haha sometimes it feels like that's precisely what the bureaucrats are doing with our debt - except they have a secret money clicker program that they're clicking away to their hearts' delight in some nuclear proof bunker under the pentagon.

me. if that's what people love about those films then... people are strange to me. i hate nihilism with a passion, and i can't comprehend why people would celebrate it, if what you say is the case. but then again i suppose you have to have suffered some despair when you live to 160 and build doomsday weapons for a living =D

Well what'd everyone think of Fargo.

I found this particular black comedy heavy on the black and light on the comedy.

The Coen Brothers are geniuses. Nobody makes movies the way they do. I agree that many of their movies are atypical and challenging, but they make these unforgettable characters with stories you'll see nowhere else. The Big Lebowski is a cult classic. No Country completely floored me. True Grit is the best Western to come out for years. If you're a movie aficionado, you should verse yourself in their work (not aimed specifically at you, just saying in general).

As for Fargo, I probably won't watch it again, but I'm glad I did. Certain scenes still stick with me 15 years later.

man i confess i've never 'gotten' the coen brothers. i've seen most of those films and... i just don't see what the big deal is. i often question my own judgement on this, if i'm missing something that's right in front of my face cuz their movies are so revered, but i consider myself an intelligent person and in particular a good judge of art, and yet all i see in their movies is well-disguised emptiness.

in particular No Country. maybe that emptiness is the point, but i came away from that film feeling almost a nihilistic void. it seemed like nothing had a point in that film, that the summation of the actions and characters was just 'The End'.
