Yeah all you need to do is plug "dinosaur" into the search box.

Check out the sources too.

Use this on your science project paper and get an F.

2. eclipse Mar 5, 2007, 11:38 Jim
 
Whenever you invite this many people to an eclipse party:

You can guarantee its going to be cloudy

Looked nice at sunset, but the moon wasn't spotted until well after totality ended.

About time. How many of the originally touted features were left off?

Well, I guess we can start that list by saying The Moon

Really, the biggest things I'm interested in seeing here (besides good gameplay) are 1) Wide-open, non-linear environments (HL2 was still too linear to me), and 2) blow-uppable environments (or environment at least as interactive a HL2's).

I'll wait for the reviews, as apparently they don't seem to be interested in releasing a DEMO.

Tons of uses - more of an old school thing - hardly used anymore.

I will sometimes order a sprite with bitters - if mixed correctly, tastes a lot like cream soda.

I'd never heard of the stuff before. Maybe a regional thing, as I wouldn't expect most people to know what quohogs, cabinets, and grindahs are.

18. Re: house update Mar 2, 2007, 08:43 Jim
 

http://house-update.blogspot.com/

Last update: Thursday, March 01, 2007

The house is shaping up nicely Warhawk. However I do have one question- why are the gable ends under the eaves still not sheathed? I'm from New England and around here we typically sheath the entire structure before putting up the siding or even the tyvek wrap.

Also if you want to keep a long-term record of the construction, I'm not sure tinyurl is a good idea as I think they expire after a certain amount of time. Just a thought.

Thanks for the updates.

/walks over to toilet and deposits 29.99 in caash - flushes.

Well at least you'd be able to get $0.99 back, as my guess would be that the $29 in paper bills would sail clear down to the septic system but the 0.99 in coinage would settle in the bottom of the trap.

Blue, you should at least add *crickets chirping* if he doesn't write anything in ItB

There was an extra blank line tonight so I selected it to make sure I wasn't missing any "secret text."

7. Re: Tattoo Gone Wrong Feb 26, 2007, 12:28 Jim
 
I don't buy it. While there is "red" around the tattoo, it looks (to me) that he drew the tattoo in with marker and then photo-shopped in the red (or irritated the skin pre-draw).

If that was real, I'd probably want to kick the ass of the guy who did it as he has no business behind a needle.

I'm not sure what the issue is. There's some stuff illegible (photo not hi res enough to tell), and I'm not very familiar with the game to say anything is wrong with it. Besides the fact that it looks like hell- is that the issue?

when is that stalker gold report coming.. wtf dudes

When the total number of previews and Q&A's reaches 2 million. We're currently at 1.5 million.

So, some time next week?

Nah, considering the previews and Q&A's started sometime back in '02ish (don't forget all the screenshot postings also), I give it to roughly 2009.

When I first read the title I thought it said "Neocon Evolution" Now that would be a contradiction.

Hey Warhawk, I know some of the others have already expressed this sentiment, but I wanted to thank you for posting the progress of your house. To me it's really interesting. I wish you were able to do a time lapse photo (1 per day) and then make one of those stop-action movies out of it ....

Seconded. I go there and check out each update. Its starting to look pretty good. It makes me look forward to the day I have my own house built.

10. Re: No subject Feb 16, 2007, 14:46 Jim
 
Agreed. I've been left sitting on a plane for relatively short delays (less than an hour), but any more than that REALLY sucks.

I'd be willing to sign an injury waiver to deboard the plane in the middle of a blizzard, etc., to sit in the airport instead (if that's what it took)....

The thing I don't understand is that they don't get food or water. Even if its just the shitty snack packs, and I'm sure there's plenty of beverage. They also said they can't use the shitters? WTF? Is there some FAA regs that say you can't serve food and beverages or allow passenters to use the can unless the plane is in the air?

I think the people in the exit rows should say "taxi us back to the terminal in the next 20 minuts or I'm walking back. If the demand is not followed though, pop the hatches!
