you guys are idiots. free speech has never been unrestricted. public safety has always been the do-not-cross line. if someone comes to harm as a direct result of the intent of your words, you're guilty and you always have been. this is nothing new.

it's always been strange to me how i've always heard it's such a transcendent experience, yet everything i've ever seen of it is this kiddie lookin' platformer. i could never get past that.

I can understand if you give up in another state - I might feel the same way - but here in California we're the political equivalent of the Star Wars Rebel Alliance.

A few examples:

spoiler free wonder woman impressions:

watch it if you can. i don't know if i'm just succumbing to gender stereotypes, but it's made with an emotional sensitivity that every other comic film has utterly ignored. it earns its emotional payoffs - by the time they hit you, they matter because you're emotionally invested in the characters, because you felt the things they felt along the way.

gal gadot is impressive as diana. her physicality is utterly authentic - you believe she is the most powerful person on the screen. one thing that's always bothered me about female action heroes is that most of the time you can tell they're faking it because the actress is not a good athlete. whether it was scarjo as black widow or all the way back to linda carter as WW, just from the way they run, there's no power behind it - they run like girls, they punch like girls, etc. not so with gal. maybe it was from her time in the IDF, but she fights like someone who's trained to fight all her life. and oh by the way, she looks like a goddess on screen, too tall, too beautiful to be human.

the action scenes were every bit as good as, say, winter soldier, and the final battle was incredible. best one i've seen in a long time. go see it guys. if you enjoy the theater experience, this is one of the top reasons to go. maybe even take someone on a date, but that might backfire cuz she might go overboard with the girlpower thing and full on lezz out on you XD

Hmm, pretty sure I'd read something science-y that dogs can tilt their heads to more precisely locate the origin of a sound.

That's what I thought too.

i think the two things are related - they get curious about a sound so they tilt their heads to more precisely fix its location.

That Lexmark case is huge.

Should be some pretty big implications for people actually owning stuff they buy. I don't know how far this goes.

the justices were fully aware of the greater implications. they said this covers everything sold publicly that is not contractually bound at purchase - patent rights no longer apply after sale.

I actually liked Prometheus way better since all I wanted to see was a Space Jockey and more mysteries and that's what I got out of it.

This is what I don't understand. They left with wanting to go to the Founders homeworld. Wtf happened to that? Now that could have been interesting.

I am hoping the director's cut on Blu-Ray may add something more as it did with Prometheus. I agree that this movie should have dealt more with the Engineer's homeworld called "Paradise". What we saw in this film didn't appear to me to be that. The inhabitants of this planet only looked "engineer-like". There was speculation of two factions of the Engineers - the Creators, and the Destroyers. Ridley seemed focused on evolving the proto-xenomorphs into the Alien xenomorph. I don't really care much about that. And I really didn't need to see more face huggers, chest busters, or back busters. And the whole "I'm in charge but nobody respects me" angst of the schlub in charge was tedious.

whole movie was tedious. they asked a whole boatload of questions in brometheus, scott and that fuck lindeloff assuring everyone they'd get answered. then here comes covenant and they just blow off everyone and say 'more chest bursters! more gore! give us your money!' fuck that, i'm not theatering the next part.

man, after reading that i'm pretty sure my car does it. 2013 hyundai genesis 2.0 turbo. as far as i know turbos don't need to be warmed up, yet it seems to struggle with power for the first 15 or so minutes after startup. after that it really stretches its legs, and the article specifically says one of the test checks was to reduce power for the first x minutes after startup.

after that, the way i drive i'm probably spewing smog like a chain smoking dragon XD

Pretty sure you can still run one stick at a time, you just won't get dual channel performance, which doesn't matter since you're just testing the memory. Also try reseating the CPU, I've had at least one mystery not posting to bios problem solved by that.

It sounds like you've gotten a lot of use out of that rig, so at this point an upgrade wouldn't be the worst thing. Though I do understand not liking the unexpected expense.

Okay, got it running on one stick of RAM. Thanks everyone.

Looks like I'll be retro gaming for a while with only 4GB of slow RAM.

Will have to figure out if I want to upgrade mboard, CPU, and RAM; or just order new RAM.

Want to build a rig for VR at some point, but was hoping to get away with replacing my GTX 670 with a 1070 or 1080 while keeping my current CPU, mem, and mboard..

bro it's totally time to upgrade. for me too - still running a 2500k/ r9 290. just waiting for vega to come out, and will probably get a ryzen setup on black friday.

Was going to check out Impact Winter this weekend, but the Steam reviews are uniformly awful. Also gaming PC died suddenly yesterday. Still performing surgery.

RIP Gregg. The Allman bros were one of the greats.

ugh diagnosing can be a super PITA. swapping out parts one at a time to see which one is the failure, and that's assuming only one failure, and that's assuming you have the spare parts lying around. really feel bad for doctors who can't diagnose by swapping parts in and out XD

covenant was dogshit. marginally not as bad as brometheus. just as dumb characters, just as self-important while sacrificing good writing for spectacle.

Experts say that her white dress might have looked like fish. Sea Lions get fed from the dock all the time. More info here:

pretty sure thats not the case since the sea lion straight up growls at her and bares his teeth right before he turns around and comes back up to snatch her in

As an expert in sea lion behaviorology I can confidently say that sea lion is a jerk. As you can easily witness he went up and told the girl she would be more comfortable if she had a seat on the railing, only to drag her into the water moments later; what a jerk.

i know you're being facetious, but it's wild animal; those idiots should've been a lot more wary of it and kept their distance. and how many times have we all been told NOT TO FEED THE WILDLIFE?!? idiots.

i gotta say i'm not thrilled about the trailers. too shooty-shooty-bang-bang for me. bladerunner was never about action. one of its chief criticisms when it came out was that it was too slow in fact. bladecrawler some called it. i hope he didn't adjust it for the ADD millennial crowd, but the trailers sure look like it.
Perhaps it is my faulty aging brain, but I seem remember there being plenty of action in the original. I mean Harrison does hunt down and kill the replicants. I mean is it a non-stop shooter? No. But overall...never heard the term "bladecrawler" before, and it seems to me anyone using it should seek a doctor for a possible ADHD diagnosis... Winkrazz

right?!? that's not what i'm saying it was, but something a critic wrote when it came out. it got fairly lambasted upon release, which speaks more to critics' own self-delusions than anything else. but it really wasn't an action flick in the traditional sense. there's probably 20 minutes of action in a 120+ min movie. the rest is exploration of character and world building - some of the best that's ever been put on film.

i dread that this will be like the total recall remake - high quality visuals while adding nothing to the thoughtfulness of the original.

Congrats to Charlie Jane Anders for her Nebula award. I always enjoyed her stuff at IO9, but when I saw that she had a couple of stories in last year's Best Sci Fi Shorts Anthology I was skeptical. I assumed she got in because of her connections. But her stories were not only really good but completely different in both content and style. Good stuff.

Also congrats to Denis for his Arrival award. Well deserved. He's the only reason I am looking forward to the new Blade Runner.

Im going to make an educated guess and say that it's not an alien megalithic structure that's causing the dip in the star's brightness.
Occam's razor says it's aliens. Obviously.
I wish it would turn out to be aliens, because it would be so damn cool/interesting/terrifying. The "broken up planet" idea I heard recently didn't seem like too far of a stretch...

not likely. even a massive planet like jupiter would only dim a star by less than 1%. breaking it up would dim it even less.

the modern day stuff will always be there - it's a central frame narrative of the story; you don't get the past stuff without the DNA reader doohickey. genetic memory is one of the main themes of the series and if you don't have that, you're just playing prince of persia.

i'm glad they took time off from the yearly releases. it was getting super stale with the collection quests and cookie cutter missions x1000. allegedly this will be more of a free form, user chosen game. i hope so.
