Hey if they get money or not, whatevahs.

But you cannot deny they were a weasel doing this back in the day. They were touring with Spirit and this is a song of theirs. Later STH comes out and you can't say they took a part of their melody and we aren't talking a standard rock n roll melody, but a very unique one.

That happened, imo no question, pretty low of them, unless they can prove they were given permission, then all is good in LedLand.

It's not even the same melody. It's a similar chord progression, but not the same. Page was probably inspired by it and wanted to do something similar. That happens all the time. Suing over it almost half a century later is retarded.

Yeah I don't care about the lawsuit, but he took it from them, it is very close, anyone who would hear this would immediately think Stair Way.

I guess you have never heard them. Youtube it. They sound absolutely nothing alike. Only an idiot would immediately think Stairway.

The computer only has to fool 30% to pass. 30% of the population are idiots so that is no big feat. Plus, the reply the computer gave to the question about how it felt about passing was so odd and creepy that this story seems like a lot of bs.

News Comments > Wolfenstein: The New Order Preloads

My impressions after 35 minutes: Put it on the hardest difficulty (how else would you play this?). Graphics are nice, cut scenes are nice, first level is fun. Guns don't have a lot of oomph (but that might change). The game is pure Wolfenstein, though. Go guns blazing. I happen to like that so I'm looking forward to the rest.

One thing, though, that annoying pan the camera and the texture slightly load in from Rage is present. That is kind of crazy since it has been years since Rage. Just maxed the settings, maybe that will go away (gtx675m sli).

If you like Wolfenstein you will like it...after all, it is called Wolfenstein.

They have to get better hardware into it. Just release an upgrade, figure out how to run existing games, and just bite the bullet. If given a choice I will always buy a PS4 version (if no PC version is available) so that means I will only buy XB exclusives. MS has to release a v2 with better hardware. It's already over if they don't.

They also have to fight against steam machines. Steam will offer movies/TV etc soon enough, and offer the latest games with better visuals and performance. MS should jump into that business model and release the first upgrade-able or refreshed yearly console platform. Increase the performance and keep the same price. Run older games in lower (720/9X/1080) resolutions and allow newer games to really shine with the better HW.

Is this the mug shot of a future continent-killer?

START HIDING NOW!!!!

I'm sure that 800 years from now we'll have the capacity to deal with a 1.1km rock.

ABC, NBC, Discovery all ran that story. Of course, with your closed mind it's impossible for you to see past your agenda. What a simpleton. JFC and you vote, too.

200,000 deaths etc:

http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/databriefs/db88.htm

If premature means 10 years before they were supposed to croak, life expectancy is 78.7 years (http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/deaths.htm), that means premature is around the 68 year old mark.

http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/databriefs/db88_fig3.png

That shows a 60% reduction in death rates for ages 65 to 74 over the past 75 years...and that is with MILLIONS AND MILLIONS of more cars and trucks (and airplanes and train travel).

I can't access the SD article (which is odd, because I should be able to) but what variables do they control for? Smoking? Job related activities? Lifestyle? I think people getting fat and continuing to smoke has a MUCH greater impact on premature death rates than a car. That is just common sense.

Even if that is not the case, the massive drop in deaths for that age range shows things are getting better, not worse.

"Summary
While the overall risk of mortality decreased 60 percent over this 75-year period, there were fluctuations in the rate of decline most likely associated with changes in the broader environment. For example, the 29 percent decline in age-adjusted mortality in the earlier period from 1935 to 1954 was probably influenced by the introduction of various drugs such as antibiotics (2). In contrast, in the period 1955 to 1968, age-adjusted death rates decreased by only 2 percent, influenced in part by increases in diseases linked to tobacco use such as cancer and chronic lower respiratory diseases (3,4). In the most recent period from 1969 to 2010, significant progress in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cardiovascular diseases (5) likely contributed to the 41 percent decline in age-adjusted mortality despite cancer continuing to increase from 1969 to 1990 and chronic lower respiratory diseases continuing to increase from 1969 to 1998.

Because year-to-year changes in death rates are often small, one might not appreciate the full extent of progress in reducing mortality in the United States over the past of a century. For example, the 2010 age-adjusted death rate of 746.2 deaths per 100,000 population was just 0.5 percent lower than in 2009. However, the 2010 rate represented a 60 percent decrease from the 1935 age-adjusted death rate of 1,860.1 deaths per 100,000 population signaling significant progress in reducing the overall risk of death in the United States across all groups."
