So, your argument is since there are already dozens of pipelines why not another?

As a Christian, it just blows my mind how misinformed people are about the basic tenets of Christianity.
You realize this is a gaming web-site, right? Both politics and religion are explosive topics to talk about. Especially here on the Internet where tone and inflection are often lost. I have no objection to spirituality but I really don't care at all for any organized religion. I think it is pretty clear to an objective thinker the likelihood of the existence of any of the Gods described by our various religions is effectively zero.

Religion is used as a tool to help people deal with the difficultly of life. People get sick and die, including children. And for whatever reason, some have an issue thinking, "this is it" you live your life and then it is done. It has been a tool used by people for as long as we can tell. From the gods of Egypt, to the gods of Greece and Rome, to the gods of today.

If that was all that happened, I might be able to look the other way. But it's used to rule people, it is used to start wars, it is used to make money, it is used to sexually abuse children. You have to think the world would be a better place if we had a Vulcan like approach to these things.

I'm biased, because I use tokens for subs, and going from the already too high 60k yesterday to 110k today is shit ; )
Wow, really? I bought one to get some gold when I started playing again last August and got like 43k for it.

Doing some research for a short sci-fi story, trying to find what an EAS would say on TV.

How likely could this scenario become a reality? Eerie.

Remember this movie? Stunned
*smile*

Reminds me of something that happened to me in the USAF. I was working in the message center, this was not long before the wall came down in Berlin. A top secret emergency message came in, emergency meant we were supposed to contact whomever the message was for within 15 minutes (or something like that, don't recall exactly). Anyway, it was for our base's Intelligence Office. When we called the contact all we could do is read him the unclassified subject line, which was something like "MiG-21 shoots down F-15".

Me and the other guy on duty start reading the rest of the message to ourselves and it reads like a shooting war has started between the US and the USSR. We were mildly freaking out...

Then in like the fourth paragraph of the message was something like this:

[U] Unclassified - this is an exercise message [U]

We had a good laugh over it, but for about about 10 minutes there, we were pretty sure a war was starting between the US and the USSR.

Edit: Spelling

I haven't paid for my subscription since they introduced the tokens. I do ONE thing that's "out of my way" to generate gold, which is farm the resources to make a highly valued mount in the game. It takes a couple minutes per day (since only one of each resources is "allowed" to be made a day), although the initial setup for it is fairly long. The mount itself pays for a month's token, plus a couple grand.

The mount will be even more valuable once flying is reintroduced, but I expect others will realize that as well and I'll have more competition on the auction house.
Just curious, which mount?

If the city isn't going to respond, then it's tough to get a solution without sinking to his level. Difficult to come up with something to do that isn't legally and/or morally a problem...

WTF Thumbsdown
Didn't you know? The fact that corporations can't pollute our ground, water, and air in whatever way the want is slowing down our economy. It is killing jobs! We need to remove these supposed "environmental protections".

Yeah, there is a local company like that here in central Illinois. Generally the key element is if you have line of sight to their nearest tower.

Three words: Tom FUCKING Brady.

I was predicting the Patriots by 2 TDs. Fairly brutal collapse by the Falcons, they have no one but themselves to blame.

Three pass interference calls in a row will do that to a defense.
They collapsed on offense too. The most egregious of which was allowing a sack which never should have happened, followed by a holding call (which was definitely holding) putting them out of range of a win clinching FG.

Passengers wasn't great, but it was fine. Life has potential, we'll see if they fulfill it any better than Passengers did.

Anyone who doesn't know their taxes are going for professional teams stadiums simply are not paying attention. Heck, many times they actually vote for referendums to support the spending. And in the cases they haven't, they elected the legislators who pass the bills. *shrug* You get what you vote for...

If I am looking for a specific trailer, I'll go to YouTube. What I originally used IMDB for a lot was perusing movie trailers for both upcoming and recently released films in order to find films to either go and see at the theater (not so much) or put them in my Netflix DVD queue. It used to be a good place to do that, it had separate trailer lists for "recent", "popular" and something else I can't remember off the top of my head -- they dropped the third one. Anyway, it used to be you'd only find movies in those lists -- not anymore.

I never used their message boards but I have to say I'm less and less pleased with their site. I'm tired of having to weave through tv series and computer game trailers while perusing trailers for a movie to watch. More the computer games than the tv shows, but still even the tv shows annoy me a bit. I understand why it's there, and it is completely reasonable, but they need better separation IMHO.

Or maybe I am just being a whiny curmudgeon -- it is my job after all..

One of the main reasons Babylon 5 and DS9 are both good is the series long story arcs -- they really make a difference. Hell, Babylon 5 was practically better the second time around when you knew what was going to happen and noticed all the foreshadowing you missed the first time through...

If ever I won a large lottery -- funding blu-ray versions of those series would definitely be on my list.

It's unfortunate there are real technical hurdles to getting a HD version of DS9, which in my opinion is nearly an equal to TOS and well ahead of TNG and Voyager. The timing on the TNG blu-ray was really unfortunate. If it had sold very well, that would have been enough reason for CBS to remaster the others. *sigh* "Que sera, sera"...
