Red Dead is dead to me.

Also, Road Redemption is on sale for $8.

Really? I'll totes play it when it arrives. RDR is still one of my fave games of all time. Hell, it's the only reason I bought a console.

Hottest June on record for both the world and Europe.

Global Warming is a hoax.

And if it's not a hoax, nobody likes winter anyway.

Win-win.

And swimming. Don't forget everyone will be doing a lot more swimming - whether they want to or not. So everyone gets in shape for free!!!

When Nature publishes complete nonsense in the name of science you have to wonder what is wrong with them. The world has more sand than could ever be used by any of us.

No it does not. As JD pointed out sand is one of the highest in demand resources on the planet for work and pleasure. However desert sand doesn't cut the mustard...yet.

Finite: a more sustainable alternative to concrete made from desert sand



Sand is worldwide in high demand and heavily used in many industries, especially construction. With deserts full of it, one can easily be fooled into thinking that sand is an almost infinite resource. However, desert sand has little use; the grains are too smooth and fine to bind together, so it is not suitable for the making of for instance concrete. The start-up Finite, founded by researchers from Imperial College London, created a material composite made with desert sand that serves as a more sustainable alternative to concrete.

The supply of construction-grade sand is dwindling worldwide. This type of sand is stripped from beaches and riverbeds, but because of the heavy use, the supply is diminishing rapidly. Desert sand, on the other hand, is plentiful. This sand is not used in construction, as its grains are too smooth and fine to bind together for building materials.

In this age of PC SJ is really appropriate to be calling hailstorms "freaks" anymore? Wry

Why, did you take it personally?

Oh not me, brother. I think you know by now I'm anti-PC. And I, uh, like to let my freak flag fly.

People should because technically they've engaged in fraud. What about the interest on those loans? Consumer law really needs to catch up with this.

Well, stop being that, and the perception will change. Just like Google. You can't say 'Don't be evil.' and actually be evil and not have people call you on it. See how that works? Treat your customers and employees well. Give to charity. Pay your fair share of fucking taxes. And the worm will turn, man. It's not rocket surgery, though you'd think it is with so many of these corps and corporate bootlickers.

Hrm, have you fixed the innate problem of 99.99% of weapons being garbage, and most enemies at later levels being complete bullet sponges?

Don't get me wrong, I'll check out BL3 when it's on sale for ~$10 on Steam or if it ever makes it to Gog, but I'm not in any hurry to buy this new or on EGS.

That's why I don't get the draw of these sorts of games. Yeah a billion weapons - 99.9% which are garbage, as you said.It actually gets to be more of a nuisance than anything. So what's the point when you're only really looking for Legendary stuff anyway? I'll check it out when it's $5.

And in the larger sense aren't we all here to make someone else's game?

I think you meant Six.

DAMMIT! So close.

That's what happens when I don't check Teh Googs.

I'd rather boff Seven of Nine than Six of whatever.

Grats on the new place and surviving the ordeal. I've never heard of anything so nutso for real estate transactions. I've always assumed they were as easy most everywhere as they are here. You guys should get some Chinese food. Always a good way to christen a new place.

As someone who is fundamentally against the idea of the 30% store tax that is Steam, I will give credit where it is due.

Valve's pioneering in VR is unparalleled. Their lighthouse system is the most advanced consumer VR implementation on the planet. Fucking sum-millimeter precision in freespace, it's fucking wild.

The Index looks to be incredible, but I'm waiting for a lightweight version that more resembles the "ski goggles" that you see in the movie Ready Player One.

VR is the one arena that no one can argue Valve hasn't re-invested their billions of otherwise unearned dollars wisely (sorry haters, if you had no hand in making the game, you shouldn't make more money on every sale than the creators themselves).

And if you wanna dig deep, the story of how Valve's VR was born is incredible. Oculus was poaching talent from Valve's VR team, and even visited Valve's HQ to see demos of tech that was far superior to Oculus. Kinda like when Gates and Jobs were visiting Xerox to totally rip off their mouse design. It's pretty nuts.

I have no love for giant multinational rent-seeking corporations, but Facebook I have genuine hate for.


No idea what most of that means as VR won't be on my radar until there's sufficient good content to justify the cost. I still think the future for VR is bright - virtual tourism, education, games, etc. yet no one is doing any of that in a meaningful way. Not even close.

It's good to hate Facebook. A few days ago I resubbed to SiriusXM as they had a 6 months for $25 deal so why not. I really like their - good - 80s and Grateful Dead channels - and others. Today on the 80s station they played a song I haven't heard in forever, Public Image Limited - Rise. I forgot how much I quite like PIL. Anyway, the great line from the song is, "Anger is an energy". Damn straight.
