no its perfectly legal so its perfectly ok to do it

Then it should be ILLEGAL.

no, its not like they are stealing.. that would be illegal - this is just business, so its ok

I wonder what stops them from advertising fiber connectivity at $5 per month with $110 in monthly fees.

Once Wheeler is out, prepare for shitloads more of "sneaky fees", only then they can just flat-out call them "Shareholder Profit Requirements."

"We will have huge fees! YUUUGE! The best fees!"

LOL!

Seriously, I got quite the chuckle at that.

That looks super cool. And that Fireflyesque soundtrack ftw.

Reminds me of how I would picture a new Aquanox sort of.

Yeah, the sub even looks a bit like Serenity.

Color me interested for sure, but the youtube vid only has 2600 views. Doesn't bode well for sales.

Also wary of any game that compares itself to a combination of other games. Still I put it on the wishlist.

I'm pretty sure the overwhelming consensus is the Sun will not nova. It will become a red giant, expanding past the orbit of the Earth before becoming a White Dwarf.

does anybody get this weird behavior on the site where when you first try to click on ootb links they all jump to the left for no apparent reason? its been doing this to me for a couple days. not a deal breaker; they don't move after the first click, but weird nonetheless.

Hmm, haven't seen that behavior on Chrome. Screenshot? Browser version?

5 years from now we should be able to see a red nova in the sky without assistance of two stars colliding 1800 years ago. That is awesome

i'll be surprised if it comes true. predicting novas? when we can't even predict earthquakes? but i hope i'm wrong. i bought a $700 telescope setup just for occasions like this =D

What's Happening As The University of California Tries To Outsource IT Jobs To India.

An absolutely horrible trend that amounts to tariff free importing.

Also, H1Bs were supposed to be used for "unique" individuals that didn't exist in the US. If you're replacing someone, the person exists and the replacement isn't unique.

Maybe it's the rapture.

Nope, the Rapture was just a 2016 thing. If you didn't get in (by being dead), I'm afraid you struck out. Sorry. Bright side is we all apparently lost out, so you're in good company.

You should watch Leftovers.

The Leftovers takes place three years after a global event called the "Sudden Departure", the inexplicable, simultaneous disappearance of 140 million people, 2% of the world's population, on October 14, 2011. Following that event, mainstream religions declined, and a number of cults emerged, most notably the Guilty Remnant.

With BF1 and Origin Access, it's even much cheaper to do that (and cheat) .. sigh. But yeah, both games could EASILY prevent that, the HWID is known to those games, it's logged in Origin. They could easily ban (or merge) extra accounts.

What?? And lose a sale??

It's quite impressive how well Witcher 3 keeps selling, especially the GotY edition. It's often in the top 10 on Steam and virtually always near if not at the top in some form on GOG only getting bumped down by sales or new releases.


If someone wants to buy for me and rack up another sale, I won't complain.

sorry, that UAP video..

Good write up here at The War Zone by aviation journalist Tyler Rogoway.

Uh, no, Mon Mothma was not CGI, lol. The actress' name is Genevieve O’Reilly, and it's actually the second time she's played the character. She appeared in a scene that was cut from Episode 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBGJTiyvd90

Whaaaaaat. Hrm now I have to go back and watch Episode 4/5/6 again, I swear they just CGI'd her. haha!

uh... what does rogue one mon mothma have to do with 4/5/6? she was only in return of the jedi as i recall.

they really shoulda done the same thing with tarkin though. he had so much screen time his fake appearance became distracting. and the actor they got to play his body looks like him and is a good actor anyway. leia had such a short appearance her CGI is whatevs, but tarkin shoulda been a replacement actor.

The thing is, the guy who did his voice and was his body double, Guy Henry , is an excellent actor and looks very similar to Peter Cushing. A little makeup and they could have gotten 95% there. The CG Tarkin just looked jarring and brought me out of the film. Leia looked like a blowup doll. K2SO looked perfect though. Hard to do humans, I guess.

All that being said, Rogue One was fantastic. Ima see it again.

If Stainless Steel is Stainless, Why Does it Rust?

I'm always amazed when people are amazed at rusty stainless steel.

And why didn't you just get a glass kettle instead? I have the Hamilton-Beach 1.7 litre kettle myself and it works like a champ. No plastic to worry about. And the blue LEDs look cool.

This is the first answered question about your kettle on Amazon:

The jar is not totally made of glass. I bought the kettle after reading these answers and wondered how the glass jar is attached to the stainless steel heating element. There is some kind of plastic (maybe silicone?) part that holds that glass jar and the heating element together and also acts as a sealant. I opened the lid after emptying the hot water (while the pot was still hot) and got a whiff of a very strong plastic odor. I'm pretty certain that the plastic part is being heated to high temperatures. My pot is going back.

No, the LED ring is sealed in glass - it's all one continual piece. So I have no idea what he's talking about. It could have been something in the heating element underneath it but I've had nary a problem like that. That's why I went with this one as the only bits where the water is is stainless steel and glass.
Jeez Blue,
Didn't you know that when glass and steel are placed next to each other they form a perfect water tight seal. No glues, epoxies, rubbers or bpa / estrogen leaching plastics are needed.

But on the good side at least you'd be guaranteed a rusty stainless steel bottom freely flavoring your H2O. at least according to the reviews.

Or one could, you know, boil water in a stainless or glass kettle on the stove.
