I haven’t played any of these...

Just wanted to say that for no apparent reason.
Me either -- however, I want to say I'm in no way commenting on how good the games are. Had some interest in ARK, I might get to it eventually. I've watched my niece play Rocket League, it holds no attraction for me. If I was looking for a game style like Witcher, I'd probably give it a try, but never played any of them. And as for the shooters... haven't played one since COD2.

Well, I started playing it shortly after the Steam release in March 2016 and technically it is still in "alpha", but at this point it is more like a very solid beta without an "Official Release". Yet. Factorio is the best game I've played in the last two years.

Thanks. I don't know about "runaway" but a win is a win.

The first alien contact was with the guy who kicked the bull. They won't be back until the earth develops intelligent life.
Kicked the bull? Don't understand the reference -- a brief Google search was not helpful..

And this, gentlemen, THIS is why gaming is FUCKED!
Not as long as independents like Wube Software come around and make great games like Factorio.

Interesting to read about Gene Roddenberry's lack of a sense of humor. I don't recall ever hearing/reading about that before. Kind of hard to imagine since most episodes ended with a semi-comedic epilogue...

Couldn't happen to a more deserving blood sucking lawyer!
Because he represented Rick Perry? Or do you know something else about him?

No comment from the woman in the story, so it would be interesting to hear her side. Despite the "don't judge a book by its' cover" cliche, I have to say the guy does look like a dick in the posted photo. I wouldn't be surprised if she was "hiding" because she didn't want to be groped any more...

Yeah, was out and about yesterday in the -4 F temperatures. Wind chills in the negative mid teens. Not pleasant. Then again, it will make the first day in Feb or Mar in the 50s seem tropical. *shrug*

So basically, they are simply predicting propulsion technology to accelerate a space vehicle to .1 c will exist 50 years from now. Thanks for the information. In 2070 we'll let you know if you can be listed with Nostradamus in the history books...

Wow, that woman in a coma got a sleeping pill (ambien) and woke up. http://researchandhope.com/zolpidem/

This article linked in the comments discusses the subject some, quite odd.

And exactly the response I'd expect from Blue. Appease the monsters, Blue. We all know how that worked out for Neville Chamberlin. Appeasement only makes the aggressor stronger.
So, is this meant as "thank you" or what? I mean with as many times as you have been in receipt of appeasement...

The recent Coutts loan (an advance on their UK tax credits) would seem to indicate they're already struggling.
Not necessarily. As I have expressed here before, businesses do non-intuitive finance dealings sometimes. I remember reading an article years ago about how GE was getting a loan. What were they getting the loan for? They were going to use it to pay their employee payroll. At the time GE was one of the largest most successful companies in the world. So, what the hell was going on?

The idea is, GE has their money tied up in things which they believe the return on investment is significantly better than the cost of the loan. So, they make more money by investing their capital and taking out a loan to pay the payroll.

Now all that said, I have no idea what RSI finances look like...

Tornado video: At first I thought the forklift was going to be gone, now that would have been really impressive.

Most Expensive House: *meh* It looks okay at best. I think the builder is right about usage -- it will get treated like a hotel / vacation home. I mean who wants to walk repeatedly walk across your 5,000 sq ft master bedroom EVERY day...

ISS: The ISS is cool, and some good science has come from it, but I'm sorry -- both the Hubble Telescope and the Voyager probes beat it hands down on the list of greatest things humanity has done to date...

Speaking of dogs. If you like science fiction and you also like dogs. This book is a great read. It was written by one of the greatest sci-fi authors.
From the blurb at Amazon that does sound interesting, might have to give it a try...

Lulz, from the NYT article:
The demand, in a resolution that its backers knew would likely offend the United States, was vetoed by the American ambassador, Nikki R. Haley. She was alone.

Even America’s staunchest allies on the 15-member Council, the most powerful body in the United Nations system, voted for the resolution.

They warned that Mr. Trump’s Dec. 6 announcement about Jerusalem, which upended decades of American policy, threatened to subvert the effort to solve one of the world’s most intractable conflicts.

Ignoring the ostracism, Ms. Haley chastised fellow Council members after the midday vote, calling it “an embarrassment” and arguing that Mr. Trump’s decision two weeks ago was a “U.S. recognition of the obvious.”
I agree there is an embarrassment. The worst part? Most Trump voters would probably say this kind of thing is one of the reasons they voted for him.

dRumpf threatened to cut off aid to any country that votes in favor of a resolution at the United Nations General Assembly denouncing his ill-fated decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Wonder if he cut his wives & kids' allowances when they argued with him?
What would amuse me would be if because of his threat, there is a unanimous vote against him. That would be great.
