It's the equivalent of saying, "Gravity is evident, for an object falls to the ground." Another person interjects, "No, that's not true, the object is falling toward the ground. The ground is lying on top of a liquid core with shifting land, and that land is on a planet orbiting a sun which itself is rotating millions of miles in a solar system that is spinning within a galaxy .. that galaxy is spinning in a vast cosmos -- so the object is really spinning in hundreds if not thousands of different directions and not actually falling."

On macro-cosmic perspective perhaps there is no 'death', but on a micro-singular-level, relative to the context of one's extremely limited perspective, death is the end of one's known existence -- or in this case consciousness as we know it -- or to refine it further: you will lose your identity; you will no longer be you.

You don't know that anymore than anyone else. And how can we lose that which we don't possess to begin with? I have a general sense of identity but that constantly changes. I'm certainly not who I was 20 years ago. Maybe that's why people flash on past lives, incorporation of racial/genetic memory incorporated from all the random free floating stuff. After all, the atoms you start with aren't the ones you finish with. They're replaced entirely about 6 times over the course of your life, yet the youness of you still remains. I find that strange and unusual.

Apparently I need to go see this as soon as possible. A horror movie scoring that well *without* sending up the genre must be something special.

Hey, I had Lasik last year. The procedure itself was awkward in the extreme, but it's insanely quick and besides dryness the only pain didn't last more than a day.

Watched the trailer and it looks pretty weak. Basically it's just a ripoff of flicks like The Thing, Fallen, etc.

I started noticing my computer screen seeming a tad bit blurry. I found out I'm forming cataracts. What the ... I'm still fairly young. The optometrist says it's because I spent too much time in the sun without decent sunglasses. When I was a kid I went to the beach everyday without thinking about needing sunglasses or UV protection. He said there is a wave of my 'beach-going' generation needing the surgery. I've been reading articles that say it's the simplest surgery to get done, but it still creeps me out. Now I won't wear any sunglasses less than $100 in value. Getting older sucks!

Hah! I have to go for the old colorectal exam in short order so I hear that. Rectum? Damn near killed him! Hi-O!

As someone who's light-sensitive don't just buy a brand name, make sure you're buying actual polarized sunglasses. I've always been a polarized Ray-Ban man myself with the classic aviators and wayfarers. And even with polarized glasses there are good ones and bad ones. Anything less than $200 is generally just a waste of money. Best bet is to go to a few independent optical stores - the chains just want to sell you whatever they can. The indies will generally always match with you with something you need at a good price.

Man, gold is such an ugly metal IMO. And soft, too. Not sure why someone would want a gold watch.

I've never understood jewellery. A diamond is forever. Forever what? It boggles my mind that people want to waste money on chains, rings, etc.

I had a female dog named Hudson, so I am not the one to lecture anybody on this topic.

That's it, man. Game over, man! Game over! What the fuck are we gonna do now? What are we gonna do?

Yeah, but Hudson is originally a surname so you have some wiggle room. And I always thought you named her after Hudson Hawk, not Aliens Hudson.

You'll have plenty of time to do nothing when you're dead. In fact, nothingness will last quite a bit longer than your life that you've lived, up to now - including the short time that remains. So don't worry, you'll be doing a lot of nothing for an eternity -- sooner or later.

No you won't because nothing ever really dies. That energy, those atoms, etc. are all used in other things. I don't know what but I think there is something "more". Reincarnation, after a fashion, is most likely. It would explain a lot.

The Well of Death? Now that's a cool title for a well.

Happiest jobs? Loan Officer? Yeah if you're a sadist I guess. And executive chef at #2? Um no. Chef's are some of the most miserable bastards there are. Oh they love food and cooking, but they hate being chefs.

And then those kids wonder why the Jerk Store called.

Well, that's what I've been saying about KS all along. Granted the ability to sue won't help when the money is all gone. At least you can punish the fuckers involved and make sure any future earnings are garnished. I still believe that KS should hold some liability here in the form of contributory negligence. And wow is Molyneux ever a dick. He really is a clinical sociopath isn't he?


When are these companies going to stop this overreach? You can't construct agreements that fly in the face of the Constitution and established law. You'll always lose. And it's just bad PR. What does it say about your company that you need something like that in the first place?

Jesus, that site for the first article is a real rag.

Yet, meanwhile, governments opposed to liberty as a matter of principle are tightening their grip on billions of people by twisting the internet into an arm of the state.

Classic right-wing disconnect. Has this clown never heard of the NSA? Did he miss a little something called 9/11? Does he somehow honestly believe America has been getting more free since then? Jesus. Rolleyes

I wonder if Cutter can 'see' in 3d. Maybe that is why he is so skeptical. Cutter can you experience depth? I have a friend who scoffs at 3d movies and anything 3d related so when I probed him further about it, apparently he doesnt have proper depth perception.

I for one am buying the Rift (or one of it's competitors) as soon as they release a decent hi-res version that's going to be usable in flight sims. The biggest obstacle in flight simming is always situational awareness and target tracking, something that is much harder in a sim environment where you lack depth perception. Yes this is a niche market but so is the enthusiast graphics card market, or the luxury car market, etc. etc.

The device will have a profound impact on gaming, at least enthusiast gaming at first.

My vision is just fine. I just don't care for silly gimmickry. As most other people don't seeing as the fad of 3D is dead yet again. Gimmicks don't last.

Hahaha! Leave it to Cutter to find the downside to courtside NBA tickets.

Well fucking seriously man. The entire game it's just squeak squeak squeak, tweet, squeak squeak squeak, tweet. Nothing but constant squeaky shoes and a referee blowing a whistle every 10 goddamned seconds.

The problem is hardware, but I gots that. So yeah, a niche, but it's MY niche. Dig?

The killer apps for VR are probably live sporting events and movies. That's when the masses get onboard. Courtside seats from my living room would be cool.

I dig like a spigot. That's groovy like a drive-in movie. Beatnik

But really? A VR helmet strapped to your head for hours on end? And I've heard this claim about courtside seats. How in the hell would that work at a live event? I actually sat courtside once at the one and only NBA game I've even been to and it was pretty annoying what with all the shoes squeaking all the time.

Facebook hiring 1200+ people ramping up to the Oculus Rift launch.

1200 people? What for?

You can't launch a new product with R&D people. That's pretty much everyone that works at Oculus, atm. This is all about advertising, marketing, and customer support. Takes a lot of common folk to sell products. This is a good sign. It means they're serious about it.

C'mon Cuts, it won't be huge, but it ain't fallin' flat. There's a market.

Edit: I don't think facebook has released any manner of hardware yet. Is that right? They really don't have the people in place if that's true.

I don't disagree. I've always said there's a market for it, just a niche market. And probably more AR than VR at that. I've also said I suspect it'll sell like hotcakes initially and then in year or two you'll have a ton of people with dusty paperweights. It's the same for all unnecessary fads. And the marketing people always try to liken it to cel phones and how no one expected them to take off - well, the differce being is people actually need phones. It's the same reason wearables is failing. Who wears a watch anymore except for asthetics? Everyone uses their phone as their watch now. So why would you need a $300-$500 "smart" watch that doesn't even do what your phone already does?

There's a slew of reasons why VR won't be what they're hoping it will be. And they're desperately trying to convince themselves of that and everyone else.

"Facebook firing 1200+ people as VR falls flat."

GDC 2015 once again reflected the changing shape of the videogame industry, with a dedicated summit track for the rapidly expanding field of eSports with talks from Riot Games, Blizzard Entertainment, MIT Game Lab and many others. Tied to the theme of videogame spectatorship, GDC has also expanded its focus on Community Management, with a dedicated summit that included talks on building, supporting and maintaining an engaged and respectful online community for gamers.

I'm glad I got in on the ground floor of gaming because I have zero interest in where this kind of BS is headed. It was a nice run while it lasted.
