The funny thing about naming things oddly, is if you believe the creators, it's likely no one else will ever see the things you have named. It is masturbation at cosmic scale.

I think concerns of a lack of game play are reasonably founded. I suspect the success or failure of the game will depend on the crafting in the game. It was implied you could spend all your time on one planet but I haven't seen any reason to believe that. I'll be interested in reading after release reviews.

Minecraft might have had a lack of game play, but the crafting made up for it. That level of ability to be creative has not yet been demonstrated, AFAIK.

Either way, it just shows what a giant clusterfuck space exploration would be...
Indeed. And it pains me endlessly that I will not live to see that Charlie Foxtrot happen.

I can only say... thank the heavens we do not talk like that Because you think this is confusing? Try doing it with 50 different languages with 10 times that complexity... also unless I misundersand the language, wouldn't this kind of language require you to LEARN all the logical meanings of historic events? I don't see how you could maintain a space-faring multi-colony empire this way, as the languages would without a doubt drift apart to the point where 2 colonies of the same race would not be able to communicate. Or maybe.. I am overthinking things ,p
Yeah, there are real problems with the idea. As the article RedEye linked says, there would seem to be no way to say, “Hey Bob, can you hand me the ¾" socket wrench.” Personally, I always assumed it would be something like a "royal language form". Something only used in official ceremonies or in diplomatic exchanges. It is a good episode.

You can blame google. You should be happy it deciphered my search at all, as I could only remembered it rhymed/was similar to "tarmac and".

Thanks to you Blue for maintaining this site for 20 years. There are probably other sites which have kept their essential identity over the past 20 years, but there can't be many.

You are doing it right, and many of us appreciate it greatly. I'll take this moment to again raise the idea of a Patreon account -- so those of us who are so inclined can reward you directly.

We should pay people to not be thieves?
How about, we should reward "righteous" behavior?

Sure, I'll play the bad guy. If I had found this money, and knew my reward would be a lousy $100 for returning it, I'd be seriously tempted to keep it. I say tempted because given the situation, it might have been possible to determine which cab had dropped the guy off.

Apparently that makes me a thief. Whatever.

The act was its own reward. Ridiculous to expect a large cash award from somebody who is homeless, and lucked into that kind of money.
Large, no. Reasonable, yes. Yeah, they guy is not loaded. On the other hand, someone did just return his entire life savings essentially. A .05% tip seems a bit stingy. The cabbie's suggestion of $500 seems to be in the neighborhood... .5% is $935, so somewhere between $500 and $935 would seemingly be appropriate, IMHO.

I mean, consider the cabbie could have just kept it...

News Comments > CS: GO Gambling Scam

It wouldn't be an issue at all if there weren't idiots willing to pay large sums of money for a "rare" gun skin. Those idiots create the market these YouTube losers use to exploit, naive, or simply stupid people. I have mixed feelings on the subject. On the one hand, their fake support of a site that's actually their own site is criminal. On the other hand, I want to say "a fool and his money are soon parted."

I thought I'd posted about this in the past, but I couldn't find it in my history.

I saw YouTube video of someone opening weapon cases and when I realized he had paid money for them my immediate reaction was, "Wow, what a scam." Now, I didn't really think it was a scam, I just thought it was stupid for people to buy these weapon cases for a chance at a weapon skin. Didn't realize there was any "gambling" going on.
