I totally agree Blue. I don't care if they pick standard or daylight savings -- but bloody pick one and stop flopping back and forth. One of the most ridiculous things in our modern existence.

How is this still a thing?

I probably should pick this up the next Steam sale... is the vanilla game fine or does it have issues that need to be modded from the start?

Dear Hollywood,

There are plenty of original sci fi stories out there. For example, nearly any story from any edition of The Year's Best Science Fiction Anthology would make a better movie than the utter tripe that will be Alien Covenant. Please try harder.

Thanks,
Moviegoers Everywhere.
Preach it Brother JD! Amen. I say AMEN!

Six more Alien movies? Nothing more than public masturbation...

Hey if Xenomorphs are your thing that's none of my business but cinemas are not the place to jack off. Wait until it's out on VHS or whatever.
I suspect you know this, but for the record: I meant it was Ridley Scott's public masturbation... and unfortunately if the films are made they will be in the cinemas.

Virtual currency will come, it might be virtual US dollars, but it will come. I have a Mobil Speedpass and the convenience is so great over the last decade I think I've purchased gas at a non-Mobil station maybe 2 or 3 times.

Two things about the log of transactions:

1) Surely there has to be a scaling problem there. I find it difficult to believe an algorithm could be found which would handle even half of the currency transactions which happen everyday in the US, let alone world-wide.

2) I think the public logs of expenditures are okay if accounts can be anonymous. Obviously people wouldn't want everyone to see they are buying Viagra, or giving money to Nazis, or whatever. It is a major issue, because the anonymity also facilitates criminal use, but it is unavoidable since people don't want everyone else to know even their legitimate business.

Eventually some kind of virtual currency is going to go mainstream. I'm not yet convinced it will be Bitcoin. Just watched The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin the other night. It seems to moving forward, but it is not quite "there" yet...

Can't comment about facebook, since I've never joined or ever used social media, outside forums. Iirc, facebook is in the middle of a shitstorm atm, so having money might not actually help them.
Congrats! We are a rare breed.

No one I have ever asked in IRL hadn't at least created a Facebook account. As for whatever shitstorm they are facing currently, I'm sure they have enough money to deal with it.

Again, my question would be does that mean the mechanics for soaking up corruption and properly grouping for special attacks are not active? Seems to me those mechanics are such they lead to wipes. Granted this is all from me watching videos trying to teach the fight.

... then the boss... Don't need to stand in shit, or not stand in shit... The damage taken is crazy low.
I find that pretty surprising. What about soaking up the corruption pools, grouping up correctly for the special attacks?

What do they expect when they make raiding a requirement to get flying in the newest zone...

Where do you see this? I could have sworn they said raiding wasn't a requirement. I hate raiding.
Part of the quest line to get flying in 7.2 will require Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part One -- which in turn requires Good Suramaritan, which in turn requires A Growing Crisis, which requires killing Xavius in The Emerald Nightmare.

Total screw job as far as I am concerned. People say, just do it in LFR but I've watched the videos of this fight, and it is not just a tank and spank. I don't know, maybe it is easy enough in LFR that you can just do it with a bunch of random people. *shrug*

Awesome Lego Garden Railway.

Someone with entirely too much money and time on their hands.

Still, it's awesome.
Pretty sure we've seen that previously, the train going under the beds is certainly something I have seen before. So either it is old, or the same guy made another. It would be interesting to know the dollar amount to purchase the required amount of track and other necessary bits and pieces.

Yeah, I know that film...enjoyed it. I remembered... it is from the original Lethal Weapon, when talking about the "hooker suicide" Riggs says something like that...

That guy in his car is fascinating and just heartbreaking.

except it's a hoax from 2008.
I watched the first 5 minutes and the obvious question to me was, "How is he handling bathroom functions?" In the part I watched they showed him "washing is face" in the back of the car and I was thinking, where does the water come from? Where does it go? And waste elimination would seem to be a major problem. I don't know if that got covered in the rest of the video or not. I can't say I walked away after my 5 minutes thinking it was a hoax, but I definitely was wondering how it could be accomplished.

@Mr. Tact - Of course, I read and edit my posts many times before posting. To reiterate, my point is Brian wouldn't talk about a particular subject to a group of people who are not interested in it at the wrong time and place. Do you get that? The illustration has absolutely nothing to do with the listener's intelligence towards the subject; it has to do with their interest towards it. I'm sure any of those construction workers, if properly interested, would go and listen to Brian Greene give a talk on string theory. But they go to him, not the other way around. I hope this makes sense because I don't know how to make it any simpler.

TL;DR You're really over-complicating things.
Alright, I now understand what you were attempting to say. Do you understand why what you said was open to multiple interpretations and hence was not clear? I'm not complicating things, things are just complicated. (I thought there was a movie quote close to that, but I couldn't find it.)

Do you read what you post?

You said people listening to Brian Greene giving a lecture on string theory would think he was loco. Since we know Brian Greene isn't loco I think it is clear you are saying their ignorance (being uneducated) is causing them to come to an incorrect conclusion. How did I misinterpret what you said?
