Kinda cool about those power balls. Doesn't make nuclear waste any less of a problem however.

It's not just the waste issue. It's also that uranium and plutonium are limited, extremely rare and valuable substances with a multitude of applications that probably shouldn't be wasted producing electricity when we have so many other options to do so.

fun fact - uranium is not that rare, about 40x more abundant than silver. less sure about extraction processes, but there's enough naturally to last us a looooong time.

The best of the new movies is Rogue One for precisely this reason. Which is odd since it had the most unlikable characters.

Concur. Rogue One was the only movie I liked.
And of the new saga, Ren was the only credibly epic character I was interested in.
In that line I´d totally watch "Rise of the Jdreyerdaughter" !


at this point i'm not sure she's even real. i mean, 1500 SAT, great cook, superhuman athlete? cmon man, next you're gonna tell me she got into harvard law and will save us from trump.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that Star Wars just isn't that great of a setting. It produced two great films (Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back) and some memorable video games, and that's about it. The rest is passable at best genre fare dressed up in nostalgia. Even the original trilogy ran out of ideas by the end of the first act of Return of the Jedi.

Yeah... 2 out of 9 films that wasn't utter crap. Pretty bad ratio.

3 out of 9. return of the jedi was also an excellent adventure film, just overshadowed by its predecessor Empire. also a couple of excellent games. the setting is fantastic; just the creatives in charge were utterly incapable of grasping what made it so great.

it'll be a clunky transition but it has to be done - just cut it out like a malignant cancer, everything JJ touched. kennedy has to go too, for authorizing that garbage.

New DNA Analysis Reveals Ancient Scythian Warrior Was a 13-Year-Old Girl.

At 13 Dreyerdaughter was 5'6" and 130 pounds of solid muscle. When she was shopping for her freshman year of high school (still 13), people were asking her which college she was going to. Given that Scythians were horse mounted warriors, I could easily see a 13 year old female warrior with the strength and skill to participate if not in actual battle, then in the realistic training these warriors practiced on their way to becoming fighters.

good god what are you feeding her? or are you intentionally raising an amazon? i'm sure i didn't break 130lbs until i was a senior in HS, and even then i was 5'9".

I was dying to try durian when I was in Singapore, but didn't have the chance in part because I was there only about 18 hours. Every shop has durian biscuits for tourists, but I couldn't find actual durian anywhere.

I hear it's delicious, and figured it was going to be my best opportunity to try it.

It's really good. Cloyingly sweet, so best in small doses.

it's sweet!??! i grew up around it all my life, could never summon the courage to try it cuzza the smell. i always suspected the taste was vastly different from the smell because of how much my extended family love it, but, super sweet? i always suspected like a savoriness, something along those lines. color me blown away.

arent you married to a japanese lady? didn't know it was big in japan.

If you haven't seen The Lost Boys in a while, check it out. Still holds up. It's amazing that the film is basically the origin and influence for so much popular entertainment: Buffy, True Blood, Blade, What We Do in the Shadows, etc. Before this movie, vampires were basically "Dracula" and that was it. After this we see lots of movies and TV where vampires are a race and a culture. Before this vampires were old and staid. After this, vampires become hip and dynamic. Even Stranger Things shows this film's influence with its dual storylines of the younger kids and the teens.

Another aspect of this film is that it shows what can be done with a limited budget and no CG. There are some great scenes that are effective by what's left off camera for the audience to fill in. Also, the set design and cinematography create great atmosphere.

And that soundtrack. So good.

Lastly, a very young Kiefer Sutherland totally steals the scenes that he's in.

just to be pedantic (cuz i enjoy it) the whole vampire culture thing really started with anne rice's Interview with the Vampire, first published in the 70s. yes i know the film didn't come out til '94, still i thought it was far better written than all the vampire dreck that followed.

In true Jonestown style the New York times has photos of the Tulsa rally. Nobody was wearing masks and no one was practicing social distancing.
The stadium was not full, the outside arena was never needed, people were handed masks and they immediately threw them away,
And the lies, the lies were never ending.

it'd be funny if it weren't fellow americans. just sad what trump is doing to the legacy to washington and lincoln and FDR. but i guess in true republican fashion, the resulting deaths from covid will be their own personal responsibility. of course they'll cry about how the government should've protected them from their own stupidity.

Frostbite already runs incredibly well with something ultra-detailed like SWBF2, when you're in space there's no terrain.

Game will still look better than just about any space-type game, but it will also run really well.

Are you saying there will be no combat on the surface of planets? Why make a Starwars Fighter game in 2020 with no fight in the atmosphere of planets when we had games like No Man's land? Only Space, a few fighters and capital ships to take down.. That sounds very bland and repetitive.

someone never played xwing or tie fighter growing up =P

It's odd to me that some people think being called racist is worse than saying something bigoted, so they try to reduce the definition of "racism" to a cartoon villains in a movie. Someone twirling their moustache and saying "I'm racist!"

Racism is only intentional to them, and only covert. Overt racism, accident racism, well meaning racism, and racism from ignorance all exist, as well. That Avenue Q song covers the latter well, when someone says something racist not because they want to be racist, but that they're unaware how and why it's racist.

Today, though? Some people just want to make the claims that your dad complaining about the Orientals are too good at math isn't racist because he just doesn't understand the issue with the term and because it's actually a compliment.

the last thing that will change that idiot's mind is appeal to rationality, but i like that you guys keep trying. personally i don't have the energy anymore, not until trump is gone. he's a malignant cancer that's made it normal to be a smug, willfully ignorant racist, and it won't go away until their ultimate source of authority is gone. why would they listen to us nobodies when their president is saying it's ok.

"Star Wars game that will come to PC and consoles"

it will be on rails, but shitty.... why is it so hard to get another Xwing or Tie fighter or Xwing vs Tie fighter...

sounds like when i beta tested swtor, and they asked us what our most wanted feature was, and to the devs' surprise, we all wanted space combat. like how the fuck did they not see that coming? but yeah, it was an on-rails minigame where you could only move your ship around the screen on basically a set obstacle course. complete garbage that was a thinly veiled insult, thinking that ever be close to enough to satisfy us. i have zero faith this will be much better than that, esp. if EA themselves developed it.

It is all one instance. Solo play is the same universe as Open play, you just don't see the other players. What country do you live in? Or are you just on a rotated schedule?


Redeye knows, I'm in HI. So I usually can get on around 9PM, but by that time most of you mainlanders are asleep, or should be.

nice! i took a hiking vacation to oahu a couple years ago - goddamn magical. and the shaved ice from island's vintage coffee is a life altering experience.
i'm very much a night owl so i'm up until 4am pacific time. when i was a mod for a wow clan i was the admin for the late night crew cuz most of the other mods were east coast XD

is this game... fun? i don't mean i need to be bleeding from my eyes as the dizzying colors shut my brain down from epilepsy fun - just... can a couple old dudes have fun passing the time playing this together?

all public domain works. pretty much anything you can think of that was printed at least 70 years ago, you'll likely find for free on kindle. lotta work blue did searching for them all though XD i would also recommend any compilation of tennyson's poetry. to me he was a titan of meter and romantic imagery. his Ulysses is imo the greatest poem in the english language.
