I'm a couple of hours away from a full eclipse location. Initially, despite my passing interest in cosmology, I wasn't planning to travel to the full eclipse location. But as it approaches I am feeling more and more like I should do so...

I'm just on the edge here in Cincinnati/Kentucky, so going to drive down south a few hours and be right in the middle of it. It'll go nicely with my 'Last Space Shuttle Night Launch' experience.

Shark Cards are sold up to 8 million in game credits.

While the VIDEO looks great, read the description in the video about all the OTHER mods you need as well.

On the VR front......

Played a few rounds of 'Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes' with mrgrosser last night.... and we had a blast (at least I did but I blame the loss of 1 liter of blood plasma, 10oz of bourbon and mrgrosses lack of visualizing morse code for the final explosion). We would do a few bombs and then switch off, and even if ya had 1 vr headset, or a laptop even, I HIGHLY suggest this. And if you love Elite Dangerous.... holy shit does this game make VR shine.

Was hilarious - best quotes of the evening:
"If I had chest on my hair"
"Fuck you bomb"
"You are wrong"
"Why did I push the button"
"I think bourbon relaxes me more so I don't freak out"
"I don't understand morse code"

/and you guys are dumb.

I did bourbon and diet cherry coke (don't judge), but my mix ratio was pretty bourbon sided, and the quote was "If I didn't have chest hair before I do now!" after the first gulp.

Here's the thing. He's young. Rich. Influential. If he runs for Office in 2020 I'd vote for him, unless he runs against Bernie.
Maybe I'm alone in my thinking, but we need to get rid of the old rich white people (on both sides of the isle).

Hopefully they get a new voice coach, because all of the people from the shows sound like they are bored and stuck in a closet.

Well, if you wait to hire a Planetary Protection Officer until you need a Planetary Protection Officer, it's probably going to be too late to save our gold and women.

Fletch wins this thread.

I told them to make a zombie survival moba, didn't listen.

Well, there are enough of those around as well :)!

Something about they want to make the game they want to.

Or maybe make the game they can without too much effort, because good AI is oooh so difficult and probably not included with Unity or Unreal! I think most of these story-driven indie games have all other people always gone before the game starts. Yeah, probably because all of them like big empty worlds...

Good AI is more then just coding. And as for good AI, please give a few examples of what you consider 'good AI'.

This is a post of me wasting time and space talking about a game I don't want to play in a genre I don't want to play, and a game I won' spend money on.

I am going to state how much I rather do other things then play this game because it's not the game I paid to develope, designed, or spent time on.

How do you satirize a guy like Scaramucci? He was already so over the top.

I've never seen anything like this administration. I don't even recall anything similar in a first world country. Duterte is similar and much worse in many ways, but even he is accomplishing things. The Trump administration is chaos and incompetence top to bottom.

Anyone who puts the last Indiana Jones movie in the top three, let alone the top two needs to... fuck it this is the guy who let Michael Bay fuck up Transformers.

Yeah, Spielberg has lost it years ago. I'm going to blame the arrival of his kids. I read an interview a while ago that he said that having kids changed how he makes movies. His last truly great movie was Saving Private Ryan in my opinion. That was in 98! All his others are generally "meh" for me.

But at the same time he had kids before Saving Private Ryan, AND they visited the set when they did the beach invasion because he had the crew cover up the bodies when they showed up.

Two VR questions for people with them.
1) Not sure why but the wall sensors are kinda creepy. I know they are watching me.... but I think they REALLY are watching me. *goes and puts post it notes on them* It's almost like Portal Camera's or something.
2) After playing yesterday, I had a phantom feeling of the cord over my shoulder... that normal?
