I see this one is making the rounds. How perfect - nevermind true - is that?

Sorry Cutter, but Snopes says this one is bogus...

Even if he didn't say it, the sentiment is true. If I was an immoral man I could have easily become a rich and famous right-wing extremist talk show host. The more extreme, virulent, and asinine the claim, the more they love it.

Stephen, when I was out yesterday I came across this, so I stopped to snap a pic.

I'm moving to the Dark Side with Cutter and don't plan on seeing another JJ Abrams film. This despite loving the first Star Trek reboot.

That's because the studios and guys like Lamebrams aren't making those flicks for the original geeks that knew and loved them. It's like Marvel films. They sanitize them and turn them into theme park adventures for the lowest common denominator. It wasn't that long ago people would look at you sideways if you told them you were a geek into games, Star Trek, comics, etc. now it's all something of an imperial cult where you're the odd duck if you don't love this commercialized crap.

I'd have no problem with it if it was quality work and people were being legitimate geeks, but it's as you said, bad fanfic at best.

I've been fairly near a power transformer (those gray cylinders on poles) a couple times when they blew up from overloads. Very loud and scary. Several vids on youtube of stuff like this.

Are you sure they weren't robots in disguise?

One source is saying he won't do any jail time, just a hefty fine. He considers that part of doing business.

Normally yeah. However, this guy pissed off everyone including those in the corridors of power. Which is probably why he got popped. I'd be surprised if they didn't make something of an example of him.

It's all political grandstanding anyway. They could change the laws whenever they like to do away with this nonsense but they never do. They just posture for the sake of political theater.

The smart thing to do is the same thing like that town in Ireland. If I was making enough I'd look into setting myself up as a offshore entity too.

"Noooooo!", "This is sooooo f—ed up!" and "You're ruining my life!" can be heard among the voices in the crowds.

That's just so terribly sad on so many levels.

And that's so amazingly awesome on so many levels.

Ahh life, it giveth and taketh away.

And re: that artilce this is the perfect comment....

This motherfucker is THE REASON why you should never trust anyone who claims that the government, healthcare, schools, or whatever should be run “like a business.”

Enh. I really wish they would have carried Vito's story forward. I'd much rather play a continuation of him 20 years later in Empire City during the 60s. See him as a boss of his own territory and tie it with a Bobby Kennedy type storyline of the gov't trying to crack down on the mob. I'm sure I'll grab this at some point, maybe a GOTY edition later on. No way it's a day one for me.

P.S.: Maybe have Joe's kid show up unannounced looking to get into the mob. So many things they could have done with it.

California will offer a lot of pretty country to drive through if it's anything even remotely close to accurate.

It will also offer the I-5. AKA like 8-12 hours of absolutely flat uninteresting driving with minimal bends in the road and no interesting landscape to look at. Hope you have a good road music mix.

Bah, I've driven the I-5 top to bottom a buncha times and there's plenty of nice terrain to see. Mount Shasta Californy, always being my favourite view coming into or leaving the state.

You want flat, straight, and boring? Try driving the Trans Canada through Saskatchewan. It's actually kind of surreal. Just hours and hours of nothing but wheat fields. Goddamn there's a lot of wheat there.

I never understood how they allowed this bullshit of slipping bills into other ones to get passed when they couldn't pass on their own. Why can't they simply be removed. One thing obviously has nothing to do with the other.

And Rolleyes at Paul and Fiorina for their opposite reality bullshit. Anyone too stupid to understand political tactics like that shouldn't be allowed to vote to begin with.

It's an excellent article that raises a lot of valid points. I don't think it's really going to work until all the cars on the road are autonomous.

I'm going for the full immersive effect, greasy fast food, hookers and plenty of drugs.

That would be so awesome if they included that stuff. I'll be looking to make a list of trucker songs like Covoy and Drivin My Life Away. I hope as they expand it this will mean professionally done weather and seasons finally. That's the biggest part missing of ETS2.

Yeah, except for the font. Just watching that trailer that was my first thought, 'Wow, awful font.' And that seems to be a common complaint that it makes reading all the text a real PITA - which is not good for a CRPG. Enh, I'll give it a go at some point.

Spoilers? Gee, let me guess. The good guys win this film. The bad guys win the next. Then the good guys win the final showdown. Or it's going to be a draw for a few films so they can keep milking the cow before the inevitable conclusion where the good guys ultimately win, right? The only way there could ever possibly be any kind of spoiler for Star Wars is if the Empire wins in the end. Anything else is just filler until the final film.

You are officially the King of Fun.

Oh come on, man. I was just trafficking in the obvious. Read Joseph Campbell's - The Hero with a Thousand Faces sometime.

The Hero with a Thousand Faces (first published in 1949) is a seminal work of comparative mythology by Joseph Campbell. In this book, Campbell discusses his theory of the journey of the archetypal hero found in world mythologies.

Since publication of The Hero with a Thousand Faces, Campbell's theory has been consciously applied by a wide variety of modern writers and artists. The best known is perhaps George Lucas, who has acknowledged Campbell's influence on the Star Wars films.

It's exactly what Star Wars is. It's the monomyth.

In laying out the monomyth, Campbell describes a number of stages or steps along this journey. The hero starts in the ordinary world, and receives a call to enter an unusual world of strange powers and events (a call to adventure). If the hero accepts the call to enter this strange world, the hero must face tasks and trials (a road of trials), and may have to face these trials alone, or may have assistance. At its most intense, the hero must survive a severe challenge, often with help earned along the journey. If the hero survives, the hero may achieve a great gift (the goal or "boon"), which often results in the discovery of important self-knowledge. The hero must then decide whether to return with this boon (the return to the ordinary world), often facing challenges on the return journey. If the hero is successful in returning, the boon or gift may be used to improve the world (the application of the boon).

Christ, anyone with high school English should be familiar with this. Anyone with half a brain should be able to guess almost exactly how these films will unfold. It's not rocket surgery. So all the people spazzing out about "spolers" is just laughably sad.
