It certainly sounds unique (but not VERY unique). I'll withhold judgement until I know more.

i'm down for ANYTHING different, douchy art nouveau judgements be damned. hell if it meant time travel via diving into a pile of dinosaur shit, i'd still give it a try.

i agree about the abyss, especially the director's cut. fantastic scifi film brought down by some heavy handed environmentalism. but fantastically acted and conceptualized.

don't agree about star wars though. its effects have started to look hokey with age.

it's theoretically possible to come back from deep hypothermia, but the way they froze his body, in a standard freezer, almost certainly the ice crystals formed would've destroyed all the healthy cells in his body. the way to freeze someone is to flash freeze them so that the ice freezes in place, smooth and unexpanded.

i never got people's obsessions with refresh rate, especially on LCD panels. i've never noticed any form of ghosting or image persistence on my 75hz dell 27" and like all of you i've been gaming since the 90s.

This was my thought. $2B just seems insane. This has consistently been one of the worst teams in the league. What was the estimated value of the team?

Worst team in the league means nothing. They were terrible because they had a moron of an owner who hired morons as GMs, though for the last five, six years they've been decent.

They are IN L.A. That's all that matters. Put money in that team, hire a GM who knows what he's been doing, and that's a fucking printing press for money. See also: Cuban, Mark.

In any case, no professional sports team owner has ever lost money on buying and then selling a team, as the values of these teams just goes up and up and up. If he sells it in 20 years, he'll make lots more than 2B back.



exactly. there's always been a TON of untapped value in the clippers, if sterling hadn't been such a fuckwit. only recently has that been seen with their recent success, but with cp3, blake, to lead the team, and sterling being removed, this team still has nowhere to go but up in value. it might take him longer to recoup his cost as compared to the dodger deal because that included land and stadium rights, but don't doubt the incredible money machine that is top level pro sports.

Been out all day and just got back, and all you guys can come up with for a SC thread is 18 comments? Man you guys are slacking.

@1bad: thanks for the explanation. Not sure what my backer number is. I did the original KS so probably not too high.

yeah i was surprised too. i think the haters finally got bored of flaming all things SC. maybe we can even have a *shock* civil conversation about it. i would guess your ID is in the 40-80k range. there are about 40k of us golden ticket holders who backed before the KS started.

So is that the dogfighting module they've been talking about? They just renamed it?

yes. arena commander is sorta the ingame name for it - a flight simulator for pilots in game to work on their flight skills without risking their ships. yes, exactly like the flight sim in wing commander. and for anyone that's curious, access goes by backer ID number which is in chronological order of backing date. mine is in the 6000s =D

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!
