if there's one thing that will take a bite out of global warming and carbon output, it's fusion power. imagine how widespread nuclear power plants would be if they didn't produce cancerously radioactive waste. coal, natural gas, oil fired power plants would all be dead in the ground.

i know stabilizing the plasma has been a major hurdle for fusion projects for a long time; i truly hope this finally leads to a commercially viable fusion reactor sometime soon. we need it, a lot more than most people realize i think.

The F-104 and downward-firing ejector seats. oopsy daisy

Such a a terrible plane. Finicky at low speeds, unmaneuverable, lacking all-weather capability or range, and with limited weapon capacity.

Fast as hell, though, and Chuck Yeager flew an NF-104A practically into outer space, which has to count for a lot.

Also, no plane in history has looked more badass.

Suchoi 27 Flanker looks way more badass

nothing beats an F-14 tomcat for sheer badassery in flight.

i was super let down by this game. aliens was one of the hallmarks of my childhood, and as an adult little seemed as thrilling as playing a colonial marine in co-op mode with a bunch of other aliens fans, creeping around the dark with just the motion detector beeping at us to tell us we're all about to die. how could they have screwed up such a simple idea...

truly sad how my old republican party has lost all love and appreciation for rationality and fact based governance. the fact that these idiots think infowars gives even two shits about the truth is just a sad commentary on what feeble-minded sheep the right has become.

I thought Ohlen was still on SWTOR, not Anthem? But yeah 22 years at one company, man that's a long time. Looks like he's getting into making D&D sourcebooks. Sounds a lot less stressful.

I'm sure it'll have stress, but nothing like the stress associated with developing video games.

imagine the stress of those devs that made andromeda, both during its fucked up development AND the post-launch drama.

Gah, that steelseries keyboard is actually a membrane keyboard, doh! I glanced at it quick at work and figured it was a competitively cheap mechanical one. Thanks for the link, Mr. Tact, although that particular model looks shockingly ancient, it'll give me bad flashbacks or something. I'll do some digging.

Horse owners in Australia: "The disease is fatal to horses and humans, but I heard a rumor about some possible side effects, also it isn't free so... fuck that vaccine!" Also basically anti-vaxxers in the USA, but I digress.


my current keyboard

spartan, functional, mechanical (brown switches). backlit with white only, comes with wrist rest.

Yeah, the injury play acting is annoying. But it isn't exactly limited to soccer, ever watch a NBA game? I'm only a casual fan, but it really didn't seem terribly bad in this World Cup.

they flop in the NBA, they don't fake injuries to waste time. and the NBA is trying (badly) to fine players for flopping. it'll be a brisk day in hell before fifa does anything substantial to curb the diving and fake injuries in soccer. public perception will probably do more to reduce it than fifa will. gareth bale used to be a notorious diver, but after he was caught a few times he cut back on it. neymar, i just don't think he gives a shit. anything for the free kick.

i can't help but think if these nutjobs had their way they'd do away with all things science and run the country via inquisition. just counting down the days until they declare earth is the center of the universe and burn all other books.

In this case, global warming is a secondary concern. The current administration is deconstructing the EPA step by step. Any protection you might think or hope the government might provide against corporate misconduct against our environment will soon be all but endorsed by the government.

And apparently his deputy is as much of a oil industry weenie as Pruitt was.

all in the name of fucking money. i just cant comprehend how fully half the population think money is more important that safeguarding the future for our descendants. we're already the richest, most powerful country on earth, and it's not even close. we can afford to give up some wealth in the name of responsible stewardship of the planet and the future, not to mention responsible stewardship is the key to long term growth, instead of strip mining the world which will leave us nothing later.

I hope they get out safely. Their parents must have been beside themselves with worry.

As the proud dad of Ms. Sauron #1 and Ms. Sauron #2 (also known as Thing 1 and Thing 2), I can definitely empathize.

Overall, I am just really glad they got found, and have medical care and nutrition. Also quite proud they were found by British divers, since like most movie villains, I am a Brit.

of course you're a brit. everybody in those fucking movies was a brit. shoulda spoke with an american accent in the movies just to throw people off.

Yeah, can't blame that octopus for wanting to hitch a ride on her.

Best quote on VS:

"Has Japan seen this yet?"

best reply: they're suing for copyright infringement XD

We now return you to your regularly scheduled fud
EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt and his aides have kept "secret" calendars and schedules to overtly hide controversial meetings or calls with industry representatives and others

can't believe anyone ever believed trump would drain the swamp. these motherfuckers make swampthing's gag reflex convulse out of control.

"There are more fools than wise men, and even in the wise man himself there is more folly than wisdom."

in my experience the difference between a wise man and a fool is that a wise man knows we're all fools. otoh, trump and his whole administration are convinced they're the greatest human beings on earth and we disagree because we're too stupid to think on their level. which of course only lays bare the breathtaking capacity of their ignorance.

Currently, most manufacturers are offering 8-year/100,000-mile warranties for their batteries. Nissan is providing additional battery capacity loss coverage for 5 years or 60,000 miles

I bet that detail isn't in the sales literature, neither is the cost of replacing the cells.

Dad still uses his gen 1 Prius he got like 12 years ago. Batteries still fine. Different tech, but still.

what tech? lead-acid batteries? if so, shocking (pun intended =) they lasted this long.

i'm also rooting for croatia. luka modric is probably my favorite player right now because he brings beauty to the beautiful game even though he doesn't score boatloads of goals like ronaldo or messi. possibly the best midfielder in the world for the past few years for his passing and possession ability in the middle of the field.

anyone see The Expanse finale? phenomenal. imo hte best scifi series on tv since B5, although not at that level yet. still, very promising the way the plot and characters grow and change in unexpected and dynamic ways.

somebody in their marketing department needs to be fired. trying to gag and control the free press has never ended well for anyone. if trump can't do it, it's kinda silly that Big Green thinks they can.
