It's almost like 2016 is like "Oh, crap! Year's almost over! Better kill as many as I can before it ends!"

I wish big pharma could come up with a non-addictive recreational drug that didn't kill people. Obviously people want to do this, so we should find some way of making it safe.
Study after study has found that legalization is the only way to stop this insanity. Until then morticians, politicians, religions, profiteers, private or government run prisons and drug kingpins will be the only ones that profit. While the rest of society suffers.
So....these sectors will be the best places to find jobs under a Trump administration. Happy hunting!

Ive been coming to this website since the 90s, back when I worked on mods for Quake

Yeah, found this site in the late 90s. I used to print it out and read it on the bus on the way to work.

As someone who's had a couple of friends die from heroin ODs and drug related complications I know that story all too well. There is just no upside to it. I really wish people could find a better way to alleviate whatever problems they're having and stay away from that shit. Much as I disagree with prohibition on almost anything illegal, heroin is the one thing I do not.

Fuck this year...

subjectively - it certainly seems like 2016 had the most celebrity deaths of any year... ever? Gotta wonder if thats just due to having more celebrities around, or what.. but yeh - shit was crazy

I wonder if someone counted it all up and did some comparative research

It probably is more. There are definitely more celebs than ever before.

I think one thing that's happening this year is that a bunch of very famous celebs died younger than expected, so the impact is greater than usual.

Also, these are the celebs of our generation, the celebs we grew up watching and listening to. It's going to be more shocking to us than when Elizabeth Taylor or Paul Newman passed away. I expect it to continue in this vein somewhat.

Yeah, I didn't want to mention this yesterday, but he had a history of drug abuse, and I suspected it a factor in the death from heart failure of a fairly young athletic otherwise healthy person.

I guess I'd be more "in" on this if I had the faintest clue who the fuck Harlock is. I have a feeling it's one of those "you-have-to-have-been-on-this-board-for-15-years-to-get-the-reference-jokes".

Fifteen years not necessary. Harlock was the username of a poster on this board from 2013 to Jan 25, 2016, when he was banned for violating the Blues News TOS. He was fairly prolific with nearly 3000 posts. Since you started posting in 2012, and have been a fairly regular poster around here, it's a fair assumption that you knew who Harlock was.

"Harlock" has fairly distinctive postings, both in content and style. The same person has been posting on Blues for than a decade under a number of other (now banned) accounts: rudra, space captain, space admiral. There are probably others.

tesla makes solar roofs now - same price as standard roof.. might be worth looking into...

.. despite only having a population of 2,600, Wildpoldsried produces 321 percent more energy than it needs – and it’s generating 4.0 million Euro (US $5.7 million) in annual revenue by selling it back to the national grid.

In the village itself, 190 private households have solar panels while the district also benefits from three small hydro power plants, ecological flood control, and a natural waste water system.

Right, you can get many times the same area for roofs for the same cost of reinforced road solar panels. And they'll generate more electricity since you can angle them toward the sun.

World’s first solar road....
That's pretty ingenious, if all buildings and roads had solar panels, there would be no need for nuclear or coal and probably water diversions for hydroelectric. Massive job increases for education, design, installation and service, could sustain a whole country easily.

It's wasteful unless you live somewhere near the equator where the sun is perpendicular to the road most of the year and has 300+ days of sun.

It's also stupid to spend gobs of money to reinforce solar panels so they can take tons of weight without breaking when there are still buildings to put normal solar panels on. Roads should be the last choice for solar panels.

Saw Rogue One yesterday. Really, really good. Highly recommended. It's darker than TFA, and feels like someone said "Let's make a Star Wars Private Ryan!" The Rebels operate in gray areas, so it's not the binary morality of the other movies. The action is well choreographed and intense (bordering on R-rating). And the story is cleverly dovetailed with A New Hope. It's not perfect, some of the characters, while well acted could have been better developed. And speaking of John Williams, the score sorely missed him.

Spoilers: I admire the ending: pretty much everyone dies. There's no hope of a Rogue 2. Also, the CG Tarkin and Leia looked a bit plasticky. I respect that they pushed the technology to the limits, but it's not quite there yet.

The Alien: Covenant trailer is out, people! After the imo lame Prometheus, they made the trailer look like A: C will be an action movie. Like the first Alien movie but with the speed of Aliens. Not sure what to think about it, actually.

https://youtu.be/H0VW6sg50Pk


Thank's for the heads up! Was excited for this.....was..... not a fan of the camera work and visuals - feels very cheap and generic. I have a feeling if it wasn't for the brand this would go completely ignored.

From black goo, to black dust. IT'S BREAKING NEW GROUND!

Yeah, this doesn't look good. I'll wait for reviews before getting excited. I'm still bitter about Prometheus.

Holiday stressors cause spike in heart attacks.

Well in that case, this might be a good present to put under the tree : http://www.dresselstyn.com/site/books/prevent-reverse/about-the-book/

Make yourself heart-attack proof for the next stressful christmas

Simple, yet difficult:

You can eat a wonderful variety of delicious, nutrient-dense foods :

- All vegetables except avocado. Leafy green vegetables, root vegetables, veggies that are red, green, purple, orange, and yellowand everything in between
- All legumes—beans, peas, and lentils of all varieties.
- All whole grains and products, such as bread and pasta, that are made from them—as long as they do not contain added fats.
- All fruits.
