Hmm, you prompted me to look up what Phoebe Cates has been up to since the early 80s. Interestingly, she apparently married Kevin Kline. Don't recall ever hearing that before.

Thanks for the link, Mr. Tact, although that particular model looks shockingly ancient, it'll give me bad flashbacks or something. I'll do some digging.
It is definitely old school in the looks department, but it is mechanical and cheap. They are essentially IBM keyboards, same people, same keyboards, no longer IBM. Personally, I love the lack of a "Windows" key.

Haven't you heard? Trade wars are easy to win. Soon the US will be winning so much we'll get tired of winning!

Watched a couple of episodes of a Let's Play of this which was made about 4 months ago. It seems like it might be a bit "tougher" than Terraria. The crafting certainly looks more complicated. I'm considering playing it.. played tons of Minecraft and Terraria so I'm guessing it will be fine, just haven't been bitten by the interest bug yet...

In the version this guy was playing, all the crafting had to be done in a machine. Now he wasn't carrying a machine with him, so he could only craft at the base, which seems problematic. Is there any reason you can't carry the machine, or has this been updated in the last four months?

I get the same thing, maybe it is some kind of loop protection? I have certainly used the url tags for longer addresses than that.

Well, it probably isn't bull crap -- those straws are helping to fill landfill sites all over the world with plastic. They just apparently aren't been tossed off boats in mass...

I'm guessing at most, one character will not be resurrected by the end of IW2.

She was upset that they "killed" so many characters, that it was stupid, or something else?

Semi-interesting. Never heard a word about it before now. Might have to ask around and see if anyone I know actually heard anything.

Yeah, the injury play acting is annoying. But it isn't exactly limited to soccer, ever watch a NBA game? I'm only a casual fan, but it really didn't seem terribly bad in this World Cup.

The vuvuzelas from before were pretty damn annoying, but using an air horn is simply uncalled for. That said, I watched about 2/3 of the group matches and all of the knockout round matches and it has been a great World Cup -- plenty of upsets and late goals.

There are a couple of things contributing to the oscillation of the length of the day.

Day Length fluctuations
Equation of Time

Surprisingly, neither of those mention the effect of the Moon which "tugs" on the Earth causing a small reduction of the rotation speed over time.
