Yeah, really. That's what we have wars for.

Heh. +1. Got a chuckle out of that.

Yeah, a lot of these rabid fans don't understand the difference between want and need. Tell them they have to pay for it and watch how fast support dries up. Everyone wants, no one wants to pay.

I think this is spot on. If they are such fans, then the team owners should do a Kickstarter and fans can put their money where their mouths are and they can donate the $300M to build the thing. Stop using public money for this tripe.

Who the hell looks at porn on their phone? I've got one intent when looking at porn, and riding on the bus or sitting in a restaurant is going to defeat that single purpose. I scratch my head at people that just look at some tits at random points in the day, then get back to work.

Also, I don't know about you guys, but when I watch pron I need both hands free.

Dog Senses Baby Dolphin In Need, Rushes To Save Him.

Good dog, bad human. By pushing that baby back to sea, you've killed it. The only hope was to call animal rescue.

Terrible deals. Fire stick is the only thing I would have bought another one of.

It's fucking stupid. Went to get some stuff, 100% claimed. Saw something else I wanted that would be on sale in 20 minutes. Waited until the second it became available and tried to add to my cart, 100% claimed. Literally gone in a second.

God is telling us we should love Pluto and restore its planetary status.

Actually, they are. NASA has hinted that the newest measurements from the fly-by will push Pluto over the mass limit, and its spherical geometry may do so as well.

Really, the issue is that 240-odd people (at a conference that had 10,000 attending) decided, after the majority of the other folks had left the conference, to de-list Pluto for whatever reason. There was never a large sentiment in the astronomical community to de-list Pluto in the first place. And the fact that the new "rules" for planets are just as fraught with issues as the old ones (there's some argument that, if the Earth was situated in the asteroid belt or even in the Kupier Belt, it wouldn't be able to "clear its orbit" [one of the new requirements for planetary status] either...), has left many astronomers ignoring the de-listing. In many ways, NASA, et al., are just owning up to the fact that the scientific community never was on board with the de-listing in the first place...

Also, now that new measurements are showing Pluto being 2km bigger than our previous estimates, shouldn't it be big enough to qualify now?

Rush is one of the bands I'm not overly familiar with...I should probably fix that, someday.


Start with Moving Pictures. Then Permanent Waves. After that, listen a bunch to 2112 and go read Ready Player One.

Rush started out quite raw and heavy and got more and more processed as time went on. The late 70s and early 80s is the sweet spot. Nice introspective and philosophical lyrics, as well as great musicality.

No love for Hemispheres, or Fly By Night? (To say nothing of Caress Of Steel, which Bastille Day was from?)

But yeah, pretty much anything Rush did from the late 80s on can be pretty safely ignored unless you are a devoted fan. (Presto is pretty decent pop/rock, but it pales to their earlier efforts.)

Oh, absolutely. I love everything between Fly By Night to Power Windows, I just didn't want to overwhelm people. Among my favs: Trees, Jacob's Ladder, Bangkok Express, Cygnus X-1, Red Barchetta, New World Man, Distant Early Warning, and Manhattan Project.

They "reserve the right to refuse service"? In America? Hehehe, there's a bakery in Oregon that can help them understand how well that'll work.

As a matter of fact, that would be the most awesome development in this whole saga!!! Imagine Derek Smart suing CRI for discrimination, because they've refused to serve a black man! Talk about epic drama! God, please make this happen!!!! Rolleyes2 Rolleyes2

The Oregon bakery was not fined for refusing service, but for causing emotional distress. The bakers continued to deride the gay couple in public, and published their address resulting in death threats against them. While claiming to be persecuted, they were actually the persecutors.

As for Derek, I really am not sure a lawsuit would get him very far.

I think The Cave and most of the Lego games aren't split screen, everyone just shares a single screen.
The newer lego games (ones that came out in the last 3-4 years) are split screen
For Trine I think you have to coop on the same screen anyways, no need split screen for that.
Does Grid 2 have demo derby mode like Grid 1 had? That would be kick ass in split screen
Can't remember, but DiRT Showdown does and the turbo boosts make it great fun.

Pretty sure Grid 2 does not.

Who in the hell plays split screen on PC?! Whats next people demanding it plays on their android phone too? Get the fuck out.

My gaming PC is next to my 60" TV in my living room. I do local coop with the kids a few times a week. It's a blast. Wish more games supported this.

Imagine the trolling responses, if we celebrated The Union Won Day on May 9!

Maybe we should have been celebrating that. Then maybe we wouldn't have had the FREAKING CONFEDERATE WAR FLAG flying at state capitals all across the South. State. Capitals.

For the Lego games, if you go too far away from each other, the screens split. Then if you get back together, they merge again. It's a nice system.

The new Rocket League has split screen 2 3 and 4 player. I love playing Grid 2 with my son split screen. Also, Dungeon Defenders. We also play Gauntlet and Trine, but those are not split screen.

It's a bit off-topic, but I'd love Star Wars to get the DCS or Arma treatment. Sorry, it will never happen, but a guy can dream.

No split screen for PC? That's probably a deal-breaker for me. Was looking forward to playing this on the big TV with my son.

Can't control Y-Wings? It's a bummer, but not a deal breaker. It's annoying that they're dividing shit up so they can dribble it out bit by bit in DLC.

The same kind of applies to the idea of bots roaming maps in place of human players. I used to love bots, but only because I had a 56kbps modem as an Internet connection

There are a couple of reasons why some of us want bots in the full game.

1) When EA shuts the servers down in a year and you want to play still
2) Less cheating
3) Sometimes you just don't want to play multiplayer with people
Foul-mouthed 12 year olds.

Yeah, that article is incorrect as that course has already been scrapped.

Hrm, been thinking about moving back to BC. If Washington and Oregon dropped off the map that would really increase my property value. Wry

Seriously however, that sort of devastation is a very frightening thought.


The Cascadia fault extends well into BC. Just sayin'
Inland BC wouldn't be hit as bad because all the islands in BC would take the brunt of any tsunami whereas Warshington and Oregon don't have those buffers. I know I used to sail out there all the time for a decade.

Also I don't know what the state of Warshington and Oregon's seismic requirements for building but they're hella strict in Vancouver. When we opened our first resto in 1991 we had to get the building seismically upgraded - which, thankfully, our landlord was cool enough to pay for. So you can't do any real upgrades or new buildings without the seismic upgrades and this was started out there 30 years ago. I'd suspect the Warshington and Oregon are much the same.

The fault is pretty far off the coast, you should be okay inland. Although the quake itself wouldn't be fun, the tsunami is the worry, just like in Japan in 2011. And as the waves got funneled into the Straight of Juan de Fuca, they'd concentrate and double in height. I would imagine that with both Seattle and Vancouver pretty far from the ocean with lots of islands and twisting waterways, that they'd be spared the brunt of the tsunami.
