Clean drinking water is going to cause more wars than Oil, and soon.

Collecting rainwater is and has been a major issue since way before corporations started selling it though. It's been illegal in most places for decades because it messes up the local natural aquifers. You can literally cause drought conditions in your area if too many people are doing it. The laws are actually becoming "less intrusive" than they were lately, but they are also being enforced more than they ever were too.

The better question to ask yourself is... why the fuck do so many people essentially live in a desert? Time to pack up and move to somewhere actually habitable or you will forever be fighting with resource problems.

LA is basically a small Mexican town that exploded when oil was discovered and then the film industry moved there because it was sunny all the time, which made it easier to plan. Unfortunately, it had a river basin capable of supporting maybe 250K people WHO WEREN'T WATERING THEIR FUCKING LAWNS IN A DESERT. But, people have been watering their lawns and fillings swimming pools and wasting water on a ridiculous level for over 100 years there, and now they can't figure out why there's no damn water anymore. Whoops.

Vegas is going to wind up in trouble someday as well.

Seriously, who the fuck thought a desert was the perfect place to build giant cities?

Well who defines what arms are? A weapon is defined by its intent. If cop stops you - and this is another perfect example of why you never consent to anything where cops are involved - and asks why you're carrying a knife/fork/stick/etc. and you reply "self-defense" then you're going to get charged with carrying a concealed weapon. They never said guns, they said arms.

Best response, I'll give you all a little help:
"I have always carried it since I was a kid" - but make sure it isn't a 6 inch folding knife.

Common sense always prevails - but in the big scope of things, it should be rare that you are stopped and frisked by a cop. (for our group here) - I carry fixed blades as well as pocket knives.

Here in NC we can conceal a handgun, but a folding knife could be considered a "concealed weapon" depending on the officer and judge.
General consensus says as long as the clip is visible on the outside of your pocket it's not concealed.

Whatever. It's not like my Swiss army knife is what I'll be whipping out if some armed assailant attacks me. "Hold on, Mr. Badguy, I have to lock my cutting blade open!"

It's the most bothersome in March for sure... seems wrong to just skip an hour.
I'm fine with the skipping an hour, but trying to get the kids up for school today (as it is with every other "spring forward") was less than enjoyable. They'll get back on schedule in a few days, but it's crazy how the time change affects a child.

It affects everyone. I say pick a damn time and stick with it.

All this talk of cross platform. Does M$ not remember what happened last time they tried it? Utter failure because they had to gimp PC gamer's to an extreme level just to even the playing field in a game called Shadowrun (which seemed to have nothing to do with the Pen & Paper IP).

They didn't gimp PC players at all, which is why they never tried it again. PC players used to destroy console players to the point that if someone in the game found out you were playing on a PC everyone would rage quit. The only shooter I've ever played that I was in first place every single game.

The critical flaw with streaming is that there's lag. It makes inputs less responsive and means that you're too late to react to what's really happening in the game. Any game that requires actual player skill would suffer significantly. Also, to Stream really high quality graphics with no compression artifacts, you'd need an internet connection that I'm not sure exists or is affordable to us mortals.

really great creative writing but what does it have to do with this story
What are you talking about? His concerns are spot on. You are streaming your game over the internet. Your input travels over the internet to NVidia's servers, where they process it, render the images, and send them back. There will be lag, even if you're living next door to the servers. It may be acceptable for games like Civ, but good luck being competitive in ArmA or BF. As for compression, I get compression artifacts using Steam to stream from my game machine to my laptop over Gb Ethernet, 100s of times faster than most internet connections. So, yes, there will be artifacting.

Click his name and scroll through his recent posts. 100% troll.

What the fuck is up with all of that streaming hype anyway? Is there any other practical scenario for it other than watching let's plays while fucking your wife?

It means you only need one gaming PC for your household because all the other machines can just stream from it. Not so useful if everybody wants to play games at the same time but works well if everyone has their own schedules.

Because there are some games I want to play from my couch that are on my PC, and I don't want to have a loud PCin my living room to stream them to, and Icertainly don't want to buy another expensive gaming PCfor my TVwhen I can stream to a cheaper device.

Waiting for NVidia's announcement tonight. Almost guaranteed to also be a streaming device. I like Steam a lot, but I want something that streams anything I want from my PC< not just Steam. And surround sound.

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.

It's standalone software, who cares, stop being weird and just download it. Awesome and easy to use.
Telling Cutter to stop being weird is like telling the sun to stop rising in the East. Why did you waste your time?

Don't care what the trucker did. He had right of way, and stopping a truck like that doesn't happen quickly. She passed on the right - a no-no - AND tried to cut him off. Hope you got good insurance sweety, fixing anything on a truck costs a ton of money. Also, please don't breed because you are fucking DUMB.
