Even if they fixed the planes, that plane's rep is ruined. Boeing should just scrap it, and move on to another plane built from the ground up with safety as the key feature.
Doing so is cost prohibitive and would take the better part of a decade.

Isn't that what lead to problems with those planes?

That's why they chose to modify a 50 year old design instead of build a new one. Less cost getting it certified. But the redesigned plane is not airworthy due to the changes they made. Gov't should have caught it, but FAA has been outsourcing its testing to... uh, Boeing.

Actually, they've been outsourcing its testing to the general public.

Why don't you stop worrying about planes you'll never fly on and worry instead about the animals you made homeless in the middle of winter. It's on you to fix that and take care of them. As the old saying goes,'God favors the compassionate. And there's a special Hell reserved for those who are cruel to animals and children.'

Right, as Mr. Tact points out, a 132x132 mile sq of solar cells would do the trick ( a decade ago, I read that 100x100 mile sq would do it, I would have thought it had gotten smaller with increased solar efficiency).
Power usage has probably gone up -- all those millenials living their lives on portable devices...

I'd point out the 132x132 miles of solar panels is simply a math exercise, it would have to be significantly larger due to the need for all associated equipment and support infrastructure. And such a solar field would need to be surrounded by a series of communities which would be devoted to maintenance of the solar field. And it would be a 130 mile round trip at a minimum to reach some portions of the field. So, saying it only requires that amount of solar panels is really scratching the surface of the effort required to actually accomplish such a feat. And as I said previously, it ignores the fact we don't have the technology (yet) to store sufficient energy or to transmit it efficiently across long distances(across a significant portion of the country).

Lava. That would do the trick! Yellow stone is super volcano. Let's just activate the sucker and create a power grid from all that hot, liquid magma. wHaT COuLD PoSSiBlY gO WrONg?!

Yesterday, I had a tree company come out and remove a grove of trees that grew too wild to keep. They posed potential damage to my and my neighbor's roof and rain gutters (primarily the gutters since all it takes a strong wind pushing the branches to cause damage). Just now, I came back from lunch and saw a squirrel running around near the area where the trees use to be. I'm so sorry little fella. I didn't mean to make you homeless.

Before this year, tribalism existed between PC and consoles. "PC Master Race" was a badge of honor for anyone who shelled out the money to build an excellent gaming system. Being a PC gamer meant any game available on PC either through Steam, GOG (for those who prefer DRM-free), or Uplay and Origin (for when the publisher wanted to force first-party exclusivity). No one had a problem with this ecosystem.

...

You're either being willfully ignorant or you're not old enough to have been gaming when Battlefield 3 was announced with Origin exclusivity. It was review bombed back to the stone age and people started making up shit about Origin to fit their narrative. Gee this sounds awfully familiar to the response that we all saw regarding Epic exclusivity. Don't act like Epic created this shit storm when it's simply modern gamers have a lot of loud shitty people counted among the whole.

I don't know how many times this argument has been brought up. But once again, here we go. Origin titles are first-party exclusives on EA's platform. First-party exclusives !== third-party exclusives.

The day they reach parity with Steam and compete on merit not forced exclusivity or are marginalized will be a great time. I'll take either.

If Epic did this alone they'd end up like Origin and would never take customers from Steam. Origin for a while had refunds with an equal platform to Steam and sold several third party games. Guess what nobody gave a shit because they're lazy and want everything in one place. The only way Epic could compete outside of what they're doing would be by offering lower prices and we all saw how that went over when they took $10 off the price of everything. Certain devs/pubs shit a brick and their titles weren't on sale anymore despite the fact that Epic was eating the discount.

It's fine to not like what Epic is doing as it's pretty shitty, but don't pretend that there's some magical world where there can be real competition.

I'm not stupid. I know WHY Epic is doing it. That doesn't mean I automatically agree with or even support it. That's why I put "The day they reach parity with Steam and compete on merit not forced exclusivity." The point is for Epic to no longer do third-party exclusives.

If you all didn't want exclusivity you shouldn't have accepted mmo's, drm and lack of game ownership. This is the natural result of gamers bending over and giving control of software to companies, companies, devs and ceo's laugh at you all while you suck their dicks. It's hilarious how far we've fallen from the 90's with dedicated server exe's and full blown level editors for AAA games.

Wow. Just... wow. As Parallax Abstraction rightly stated, "I am not entitled for wanting to be able to buy games on a platform that isn't garbage." It's one thing to have the Epic Games Store be at parity with Steam and sell exclusives, but their platform is trash at the moment. It's unfair to force people to buy on what is objectively an inferior platform. One would argue that the only reason Epic can offer 88/12 is that the platform lacks all of the features that justify Steam's premium 70/30 split. Epic wants to build a community, but astroturfing brand loyalty isn't going to work when people know they can buy a game on a platform that offers better features.

Further, Epic's more generous split hasn't resulted in a better pricing point for consumers. So when you have Cyberpunk 2077, Red Dead Redemption 2, and Jedi Fallen Order simshipping for $59.99, it would be curious to see if the pre/order percentages are higher for Epic than Steam. I guarantee they aren't. That proves people prefer Steam when given a choice, or, that is to say, they prefer a platform that isn't held together with bubble gum and baling wire.
