MH370 not deliberately crashed by pilot, say investigators.

Yeah, that story the other day that the pilot flew for 7 hours before crashing the plane deliberately made no sense.

I thought this story was funny:

New York parents win legal battle to evict son, 30

They also gave him $1,100 (Ł819) to leave, according to one letter, which suggested he sell his some belongings including a broken down Volkswagen Passat.

"I had to spend it and I'm not sorry about it," he added, telling other local media that it went towards "expenses".

In court he acknowledged he has never contributed to household chores.

Sounds like a real winner.

Just try and roll a Tesla model X over

All those batteries in the floor give the car a very low center of gravity.

Pshhh, "no true gamer" has anything more going on 20 years later. School and schoolwork were mandatory for me back when this came out, now I have *more* time! #ForeverAloneAndSpottilyEmployed

Haha. I have a wife but no kids yet. God knows how I'll find time to game once those kids come along, assuming they do, because I already feel like it takes forever to finish something and big open RPGs take up months of my gaming time.

Granted I watch a lot of movies too.
Dude, you gotta stop gaming long enough to make them kids. It's a challenge...

If you're not a fan yet, check out this fan made trailer made completely with footage from the show.
For any sci-fi fans who may not have checked out The Expanse yet, I highly recommend it - even if it does not get picked back up by Amazon or anyone else. It's some of the best sci-fi in a long time, or ever, IMO. It has a great cast, high production values, and it aims to be realistic and scientifically accurate.

The first couple episodes of season 1 are a little slow, but it picks up, and has only gotten better. Season 2 was amazing, and so far, season 3 is outstanding.
The first couple of episodes are slow? The first scene of the first episode has a zero-G sex scene.

(Shameless attempt to get people to watch the show.)

The housing shortage in SF, Honolulu, and other cities is caused by NIMBYism, which is a non ideological cause.

Housing and rent prices are the biggest driver of homelessness where I live.

"Fascism is back. Blame the Internet"

Which is pretty much like saying, nuclear bombs are back, blame uranium. Or spliting people in half is back, blame chainsaws.

It's not the internet, it's HOW WE USE IT. As for the why we use it that way. Well, look no further than the need for control.

I read something about a study that showed as the internet encourages cultural diffusion, that causes people to actually become less accepting of alternative ideas and actually forces people toward extremism. I'll have to go do some research, but I thought that was an interesting and counterintuitive argument.

They're definitely going for that L4D vibe. They probably should have licensed Edge of Tomorrow if they were going to go the endless alien route.

Maybes its like that one other series. You're in the future and have to step into a DNA-Memory Virtual Machine and end up in WW2.

BFBC2 took place in the modern world, but started with a WW2 mission. So at least there's precedent.

The Korean War would be a new setting. But there weren't any Brits fighting Germans so I don't see how this could be new. Unless like someone suggested it is going to be an alternate universe.

Brits fought in Korea as "Commonwealth" forces along with Aussies and Canadians. Still, the new BF probably isn't Korea, which is a shame.

You don't have to pay for anything outside the base game and expansions. There's a subscription option, which gets you the expansions without the additional cost. The rest is mostly cosmetic stuff.

It's not like WoW where you -have- to pay the sub to play it.. well you can pay for game time with in-game gold in WoW, but it takes a ton.

Really? I just read again that you MUST subscribe. I will check it out again. If there really is no subscription, I will buy it immediately. More TES is always welcome in this dojo!

EDIT:
Only consoleros need to pay

BOUGHT!

EDIT 2: WOW! They even included the Morrowind expansion. I hope it really is at least a bit like the classic Morrowind. Can't wait to try. DOWNLOADING!

Let me know how it is. The kids want to do an MMO with dad, but they want Final Fantasy (esp since they just finished watching Dad of Light). I don't want to pay for three bloody subscriptions to play with the kids.

They've both played Skyrim, so maybe I can convince them to try TESO.

I can't remember the last time I used the DVD in my PC. Pretty sure it may have been when it was built two years ago, and not a single time since.

I'd be more than happy to not have one. For the most part, flash drives have thoroughly replaced the purpose a DVD drive once served.

Back when disk drives started disappearing, I bought an external one. And never used it. I'd consider an external DVD drive for the same reason, but there's 0 chance I'd get a laptop with a DVD drive - makes the things too thick and heavy. For the once every five years I'd use the DVD drive, I can buy one off of Amazon for $20. Beats a larger, heavier laptop.

I have one, and I have games on DVD, but since I've acquired most of those games on Steam too, I just never use them.

Come on we gotta keep hoping! Don't give up! Just imagine what a new HL would mean. I bet Blues would crash.

Yeah, but what would be the point of keeping it a secret? If another company was going to do a "Half Life" they would have done it by now.

My son loves that game. He specializes in building them so that they fail just as the vehicle reaches the end of the bridge. "So close!" he'll shout.
