Concept 2 Rowers. Rowing is by far the best combined cardio and strength exercise there is, bar none. Everything else is a waste of time and money comparitively. 20 mins every other day on one and you'll be in near Olympian shape in six months. Forget treadmills and all that other garbage.

This helps a discussion about the dangers of working at a desk how?

Lastly, what is that weapon thing in pic 022?

Markus is really into movie props, he hired a company to decorate the place and they bought a number of pieces including the Brando bike from Wild One, it's in the pics - the guns a prop from a James Bond movie, don't remember which one.

I won't claim to have recognized it right off, but as the self-designated authority on the Bond books and movies, I felt compelled to research this.

I'm pretty sure that's a Browning M1919 fired from the helicopters attacking the oil rig at the end of Diamonds are Forever.

In his defense, when Annie Hall was written, TV was trash. The Love Boat, Brady Bunch, Happy Days, Three's Company, etc.

Maybe he can do a show about molesting children!


Can Roman Polanski co-create?

Fucking Roman Polanski. When all those dipshit actors applauded for the miserable old rapist bag of shit during the Oscars a few years ago, I fervently wanted the entire building to catch on fucking fire with all of them caught in it.

I had about the exact same feeling about that.

I loved the last one, but didn't they make enough money to actually do this on their own? I mean.. why are they kick starting again?

The fact that they already hit their funding goal probably serves as an answer.

So I guess they've lied about the game not being delayed.
March 24th is the new date
I don't get their mentality of confirm there is no delay and 4 days later they delay the game.
They didn't know 4 days ago the game will be pushed back?

Since the post from Rockstar was made a while before this story appeared here, the span between this announcement and the delay was more like two weeks.

Doesn't really alter your point, but I wanted to make sure that was clear.

apparently peyton's been playing with a torn left quad since december, which would explain the lack of ability to run. also those fluttering duck passes since he can't really drive his weight into his passes.

That would certainly help explain his trouble passing the ball yesterday. To explain his lack of running ability, he'd have to be suffering with a torn quad since high school.

(I'm going to take the PS, since the Xbox has been around less) PS4, PS3, PS2, PS1. Before that, I think we can count the SNES/Super Famicom/Megadrive as a gen, and then of course the NES before that.

and before that, the Atari 2600 and its brether like the Colecovision, Philips Videopac etc.

So even with all that, I still see the PS4 "just" as Gen 7?

From Wikipedia:

1st Gen: Magnavox Odyssey, Pong
2nd Gen: Fairchild Video Entertainment System, Atari 2600
3rd Gen: NES, Atari 7800, Master System
4th Gen: SEGA Genesis, Neo Geo, SNES
5th Gen: PlayStation, 3DO, N64, Jaguar
6th Gen: Dreamcast, PS2, Xbox, GameCube
7th Gen: Xbox 360, PS3, Wii
8th Gen: You know.

And, Woo Packers!

I was watching it on delay, and trust me when I say I loathe the Cowboys, but that overturn on Dez Bryant's catch was god-awful terrible. What the fuck more does a receiver have to do before he's considered to have "made a football move???" He caught the ball, made two steps with it, goes down and only when it hits the ground does it come lose.

NFL Tard Ref "It was determined that ehhh... I dunno either. Overturned!"

Unbelievable. What a horseshit call.

I guess they were saying he never fully had control of the ball? If so seems a pretty tough call, specially to overturn the call on the field. Still, I guess what the refs giveth the refs can taketh away.

The problem with the rule just showed itself full face in the Den vs Ind game. Punt return, never had control, said he was "down by contact" when getting hit instantly.

F the rule. It is a terrible rule. It was a TD. If the Packers had done the exact same thing - they would have given it to them. The NFL hates teams like the Cowboys, Vikings, and a few others.

It's a receiver specific rule, a punt return is not a pass.

I was wondering about that myself after the Mike Carey came on to share his expertise as a former official in saying that the same rule applied to the punt. Then the call didn't go that way, and there was no follow-up on that at all. Weird.

Watching Mike on TV is painful, he looks like a deer in headlights, and it sounds like this extends to him being too uptight to even remember the rules properly.

Woot! Jan. 27th! Can not wait!

Since Cutter also sent this in, I'll post a general question to all of you. Would you like more coverage of stories like this? I tend to view it as non-news/clickbait material (since nothing really suggested it is delayed), but I don't want to spoil everone's fun.

Achtung! Berlin is burning and Adolf Hitler has risen from his grave to gather an army of Undead Super Soldiers who are poised to spill blood and guts across Europe.

With plots like these, I always end up wondering how they'd run the day to day operations of government if they won. Is there going to be a zombie hellbeast secretary of the interior? Will funding be secured for highway development?

Say what you want about zombie Mussolini, but the zombie trains ran on time.

What are the odds that Marla, if she were her own individual person and not a figment of Jack’s imagination, would choose to use the word’s “She’s infectious human waste!” to describe herself in the third person when we know that Jack and Tyler literally use infectious human waste to make soap. This is a deliberate connection the director was trying to make.

This is why Tyler is wearing rubber gloves when he has sex with Marla.

Wrong. They were using human fat, not infectious waste. Fat makes the best soap - tallow, lard, etc. And Durden was wearing only one glove symbolizing it was something very kinky.

The dumpster where they get the fat has a large sign that literally says "Infectious Waste."

Since the general forums here are underutilized, I thought it might be helpful to drop a pointer here to the discussion thread on the news forum about the launch of Elite: Dangerous, since it has remained very active even after dropping off the popular threads list (which only covers the previous week).

This is all pre shaders so it was pretty nifty at the time, especially as a student project.

The lead dev is a senior software architect at Pixar today, so it worked out for him, too.
