They say after the apocalypse only rats and roaches will be left. I think we need to add ticks to that list.
tick covered rats, thanks for nightmares.

Rats are a full service mode of transport, meals included.

Also, fish gotta swim, ticks gotta suck.

Gotta love how McCain votes to take away people's government-sponsored healthcare after being a recipient of government-sponsored healthcare his entire life: first in the military, then as a member of congress.

It's embarrassing and tragic. When I lived in SF and struggled between so much work and college, the nicest and most helpful people were LGBT. Literally, this makes me extremely sad and angry.

And you're sure they didn't just want to get into your pants?

Though she couldn't talk to us about the exact technologies she worked onódoing so might get her arrestedóLisa did say that she was dismayed by how inaccurate drones truly are. They are touted as machines for surgical strikes, but she said her experience was that, in practice, distinguishing between an enemy and an innocent bystander was incredibly hard.

This is nothing new. In fact, they made an entire movie about this premise.

LOL. That's actually a pretty cool premise. I like the deconstruction of the "Sim-everything" genre.

Looks like 3D Bard's Tale. Also looks like they're reducing graphic fidelity to ensure smooth gameplay and/or port over to PS4. I admit it does make it look outdated. I appreciate the co-opting of the old move-one-square-at-a-time mechanic to overcome the movement problems in VR. It's a design that us crusty old gamers are familiar with, as well as any newer gamers that have played Legend of Grimrock.

Yeah, I've loved the previous two games by these guys, but this just doesn't look fun with its arena style gameplay.

It's not a trailer, it's more like a let's play by one of THE MOST annoying pricks on the entire internet. Had to mute it after a minute, cover up the Mr. Pretentious Cam with the calculator app, but even then I got bored before halfway through.

My 10 year old watches this guy sometimes. I wouldn't say he likes him, but he plays a lot of the games my son does, so my son discovers new stuff through him. Esp itch.io.

Anyway, that he appeals to 10 year olds should tell you all you need to know.

People are naturally uncomfortable with silence

Guess I'm unnatural then. It doesn't bother me at all.

Given that the vast majority of human history was spent in mostly silent nature I'd say you're pretty normal.

Our house went up for sale today. On top of that, we agreed on terms last night on the house we are buying. Phone is going nuts for showings of our house. Hope to be sold today.

Which realtor are you using? Edina?

A limiting factor on producing electricity in a warming world? Water.

Oh, man. If there was just some place that had more water.

Moon's interior may contain water, Brown University scientists say.

BINGO!

Qualifying for a term like "megamerger" should automatically invalidate the merger.

We're getting to the point that the creators of self-learning AIs can't predict what the AIs will do. That lack of predictability is concerning.
