China is roughly the size of the continental US with 4 times the population.
Well, yes and no -- if you include Alaska which obviously is mostly unpopulated. But your point is well taken. Hell, there are plenty of people walking the streets of the US I'd like to run down with my car.

As someone else said, a very nice demonstration of how the speed of light is nearly meaningless against the distances of space, even just within our solar system. Interstellar space is so large it is difficult to actually conceive of it.

No one knows if we will ever be able to fold, warp, or whatever the space-time continuum. I certainly hope we will. And it is the greatest disappointment in my life that I will not live to see it.

Based solely off the trailer, it looks pretty impressive. Might have to give it a whirl...

How do you learn to do that without cracking your skull open? Rigging when you practice your bike seat to bike handlebars hop?

I could understand them being burnt out. But they shouldn't be thinking about trying to compete with D3. What they should be doing is concentrating on working on a game they have fun playing. Do what you love and let the chips fall where they may.

I played for 6.5 years and loved it. For me, the only reason to go back would be the reason which kept me there the last 18 months I played -- having a good group to spend time with.

Hadn't known (or forgot) that Craven was behind the Scream movies. Amusing.

If you want to learn about history, don't bother taking a class, unless you like biased, propaganda ridden trash.
While I understand the concern behind your comment, please enlighten me on how I should learn about events 200 years in the past.

Ever seen the movie Idiocracy?
Actually, I tried -- but it was too over the top for me. I don't find "stupid" as funny as so many others seem to. I understand the point though.

I won't lie -- I didn't read a lot of this and frankly I don't particularly care. I just wanted to stop by and say, it has to be better than talking about SC reaching their latest funding goal.

Stories like this just make me so tired. I realize people have been saying the end of the world is coming for hundreds if not thousands of years -- but reading stories make me wonder if we can survive the next few decades. Assuming we survive until then, I'd love to take a history class on the first half of this century a couple of hundred years from now.

A girlfriend of mine shared that article with me and said 'I think this is the woman of your dreams.' And she's right. I always said I'd never get married, but I'd marry that chick in a heartbeat! What a champ!
"A girlfriend" -- you have more than one? It would be a much more impressive story if she had boarded the plane afterwards instead of getting carted off to a "convalescence room" to sleep it off.

I liked Prometheus! There. I said it! And I know I'm the only one in the world. That's ok.

I don't know if I could say I liked it, but I certainly didn't dislike it as much as so many others seemed to. It was "okay".

Ah, exactly right, it is a percentile score, not a percentage.

ie.. His score compared against all the entries in the ESPN's Pigskin Pick'em.

Congrats to Verno last year. With a pretty amazing 99.3%.
Congrats Verno... there is something funky going on with the math there though. Verno scored 170 correct picks. 32 teams playing 16 games each should be 256 games, which is more like 67%.

I have to agree with the author, I dislike the forced updates. More than anything because I know at some point they're are going to make a feature update I can't disable and can't live with. Like that horrid new bookmarking they came out with not too long ago. For now you can force that away, but the day they change it so you can't will be the day I change browsers.
