News Comments > LOST ORBIT: Terminal Velocity Launched
4. Re: LOST ORBIT: Terminal Velocity Launched Jul 17, 2019, 02:01 bigspender
 
Now that you guys mention it, I'm really surprised there hasn't been a rebooted version of Terminal Velocity or that Windows 95 reskin of it.

I dunno wtf this game is meant to be. It's like they took the first Unity familiarization tutorial and added more art assets :S

Insect apocalypse: German bug watchers sound alarm.

Well, I didn't see that one coming. I guess that means a dune buggy post apocalypse. Time to leather up, road warriors!

It'll be fun in coop, but the price better be right.

Although will I have time if I'll be playing the new Ghost Recon Breakpoint, which is a much more deep and grand experience in every way? Probably not.

No HP Reverb?

It's got the best resolution and no screen door effect. You can actually read small text.

Is Spinach Basically a Steroid? New Research Suggests It Might Be.

8 pounds of spinach a day LOL.... enjoy the oxalate based kidney stones.

Very flawed study. No control group. And went for 10 weeks, a natural lifter cannot to gain any noticeable amount of muscle in 10 weeks. Measurable yes, noticeable no. So when they say that the spinach group gain "significantly more muscle" and not mention the numbers, it's probably like only a few grams difference.

Having read the abstract and sponsors/organisers I think this study is a gimmick to market a new type of sports supplement pill/powder.

Anyway, kale is a way better green vegetable

my bits

I think I understand now. Dinosaurs might be your ancestors, but the rest of us that believe in climate change and want to stop it, evolved from mammals....


Did you really just now suggest that mammals showed up fully formed , and have nothing to do with lizards and dinos in the same breath as showing off how on top of science you are by mentioning climate change in the same sentence?

Okay, we're cool.

Sorry for last nights spew, caffeine and psychotic breaks are a helluva drug, but damn, common core science-in' is living large these days if our common ancestral link amongst most of the lifeforms on this planet is no longer being taught. I'll just drop this here for a quickie update to your brain-pan: https://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/our-relatives-the-dinosaurs-36503129/

Sorry to break it down to you like this without any padding to soften the blow, but your ancestral group smelt of fish at family gatherings way back in the day before we crawled out of the sea, just like most of the rest of this planets inhabitants. But hey, it's always nice meeting someone from 'not around here'. How was your trip across time and space?

~Finis~

That's a quite a bit different than what you suggested, which was that we evolved from basically a T-Rex.

1) nobody is guessing this time around. This isn't some biblical story or prediction. It's been a well established science since the 70s. It's hard numbers. It's like seeing a ball roll towards the end of a table. We all know what happens next.

2) We haven't been here before. The dinosaurs have. And well they aren't around anymore.

3) China is one of the leaders in renewable energy. So you can't point the finger at those places anymore.

4) Doing something bad on purpose, then "owning it" is a way to make yourself feel better about doing the wrong thing. I doubt you'll be "owning it" when one billion people migrate to your country thanks to climate change.

5) Doesn't your diet soda contain aspartame? (it turns into formaldehyde in the blood, which might explain a few of your posts lol)


1. We still have to live with the damage, we lucky few. And they weren't guessing back then, either. Science advances. They were 'right', as they understood it, in a way previous generations didn't. The same way we're 'right' today, and they're wrong, yet our estimates are off by 70+ years just on the question of perma-frost and all the lovely methane adding to the hilarity. And tomorrow we'll have even more info to update our rightness, for all the good it'll do with the damage done already.

2. Rocks hurt. Just ask us after a 6-mile wide one lands on New York. My reference to having been here before are the demonstrable periods in our evolutionary travails to this point where Co2 and heat made for fun times. And what's with the Dino-Racism? They're your ancestors as much as the rodent that ran around their feet that we came from, all of us crawling out of that sea at one time back in the day.

3. My reference to China's air quality is hardly old news. I'll leave it to your enjoyment to google their latest results as to their 'green-ness', but for giggles: https://waqi.info/ Real time, no less. I'd say they still have a ways to go, and we'll be breathing that air until they do. Thanks Jet Stream.

As to #4, perhaps you mis-read, or I mis-englished. I wasn't saying own your polluting. What I meant to put down was own the fact that you are completely boned, but do still keep trying to leave the place better than you found it. That was the bit 'do what you can'.

You are the one tasked with living through this side-show of assholes giving us this world, then asking for Carbon Tax bucks to clean it up. Did you approve factory concentration in another part of the world? I don't remember being asked, but I sure as hell have to put up with the consequences of others making these decisions for me. Had I been asked, no way in hell would the plans have met approval for placing General Electric nuke plants on a sandy shore with an underground mountain-fed river running underneath in an area hilariously historical for its ability to put water further ashore than natives would prefer, with the fun of the more than occasional earthquake tossed in.

As for aspartame, and other food additives of questionable biological use (but hey, money, amirite Rumsfeld and Searle?), I'd just like to drown the assholes with the degrees that approved that crap in giant vats of the stuff, televised. Perhaps with piranha. You can tell I've cooled off about this bit of idiocy of theirs. I've left off the destruction of their dna chains and the public drawing and quartering during the Superbowl half-time show. What can I say, I'm gettin' warm and fuzzy in my older age.

I'm not asking anyone to be happy about this. About the best we can do is make our way through a world where a kinder, gentler creator-type might have given us less psychopathic assholes in charge bringing us to this point with every policy, directive, and approval of the things we call our way of life. How's that bottled water leaching Bp-a -b and -s treating ya these days? I just looooove chemicals that act as oestrogen leeching into my dihydrogen mon-oxide. Hey, pregnant momma, suck it down! And collections of the stuff in any number of places around the world, like say your garbage dump over your water table, or the Indian Ocean, can, does, and will have some quality of life effects for many of us today, but certainly for your kids and those they'll call contemporary's.

And your bit about Aspartame breaking down into formaldehyde in the blood stream, that thing your brain likes to call 'supply of life giving crap' alludes to the gallows humor attempt of mine to draw attention to the fact that 'ALL' of us are in this together, for all that we're trying to do more to clean up than others about the world at this time, apparently. Can't blame them. We made this crap look good as we built our nation up.

Don't mind me. Just going through some of the more interesting Climate Change weather effects of late living in central Tornado Alley. Fried in 109 degree real-feel temps today which segued into 60-70mph straight line possibly tornadic winds. My new normal of late in cen-tex it seems.

Sorry if it comes off as being downish on humanity. I'm with George Carlin on this. It's a great show, with a lot of good folks making their way through what future history books are gonna be calling 'WTF was that all about?!?'. I'm long on hope, but cognizant of the real issues surrounding what we all call Normal Daily Life.

May you live in interesting times, indeed. Sorry my wall of text struck for 9000 damage pts. I blame my typing ability and caffeine.

Been one o' them days, y'know.

~Finis~

I think I understand now. Dinosaurs might be your ancestors, but the rest of us that believe in climate change and want to stop it, evolved from mammals....

Been taking the long view on this whole thing since I was a kid in the 70's hearing about Sno-ball Earth a'comin. And here I am, still chewing my cud and looking stupidly about wondering at the ruckus.

'Recent studies have shown that those who believed the world would end on Dec 21, 2012 were in fact, wrong.'

I just luvs me some guessers.

Lots of folks have been guessing at what's gonna take us out since before I was born, and will be doing so long after my bits have become a part of other people and things. My money's on Fuckyoushima, Glyphosate, Aspartame and the nano-scale particulate aluminum matter spewing out the ass ends of any numbers of airplanes these days, almost all of which are most certainly Humano-centric in origin, and also almost all of which can certainly be extinction level events in their own rights, right fucking now.

So the weathers changing. Great. We've been here before, back when we wore caveman clothes and Kardashian asses were on nobody's mind, only then we had larger brains, and a more active lifestyle in general. Dunno how this is gonna affect us all, but I'm guessing kitty videos on media-delivery devices are gonna be rather low on the daily to-do list for most humans going forward dealing with whats about to be our new 'normal'.

I'm still waiting for those busy converting oxygen into loud trumpetting of Doom Horns to explain how, in the face of 2.5 BILLION 'highly motivated to have our way of life, or better' individuals (China, India); our few hundred million climate conscientious souls are going to be able to undo those two countries good works, as regards this whole eggs-in-one-breadbasket and trying to keep it clean thing we got going on. With air in China they jokingly say you could walk on, and an actual island of plastic and garbage off India's coastline you actually 'can' walk on, with the attractive addition of literal mountains of garbage 240' tall outside a variety of their cities, just how in the hell is any of this to work out for anyone on this ball of water anywhere, especially in light of how the planetary systems gleefully shuffle the damage about the place on any number of jet / water streams.

So relax, don't worry. You're screwed. Own that shit, do what you can. And pass me a diet soda. I haven't had my ice-cold allotment of aspartame today, and I'm missing the calorie burn from the shakes that stuff gives me..

You mean People Seasoning Animals with Plant Foods To Make Them Taste Good?

Jokes aside, animal agriculture is a major contributor to climate change... so when you order a beef burrito instead of bean burrito, you're getting some premafrost thawing as a side dish

Is Meat Bad for You? Is Meat Unhealthy?

"meat causes cancer, but it's also not unhealthy in moderation"

Kind of a confused video, but if it gets people to eat less meat, then I guess it's only a good thing from the environmental perspective alone.

Like anything in life, moderation is healthy, excess is death.

If we want to take the moderation stance, well OK as the video says, eat just 53g of meat a day.... nobody does that. And what's even the point by that stage, two bites of a steak a day. (you can't even save it all up for one big steak a week, because they say the effect is too potent then)

And you know the whole global warming thing is an emergency (which is majorly caused by animal agriculture). We're going to look like complete dicks when the world melts, because we wanted to save the world in moderation

I grabbed the Beyond Burgers from the grocery store to give them a try a couple weeks ago. I didn't like them at all. Clearly tasted nothing like beef and more like plant. I did have the Impossible Burger and that actually tasted like meat.

My problem with Beyond Burgers was that they tasted too much like meat (gave it up nearly a decade ago) and the stuff just repulses me these days. Beef or dog or human open wounds all smell the same to me now :S It's very strange, because I loved meat before I made the change.

Wildlands, while fun, needed more depth and they've really added it here with Breakpoint. I'm looking forward to it.

I wasn't crazy about the drone stuff before, but it adds a reason to play without stealth and silencers in more situations.

Have you ever played the pen and paper Star Wars games? They're full of stuff that never happened in the movies, and make SW all the more interesting for it. IIRC the Jedi's could basically do any of the stuff you mentioned, assuming the dice rolls were favourable. Don't really understand why you are so dogmatic about it. It's all within the theme and genre. Perhaps as a Trekkie, I'm missing something?

Dude, spelling the plural of "Jedi" as "Jedi's" with an idiot's apostrophe is outrageous, even for a fucking Trekkie!

It is Jedi. Just Jedi. Always. Singular and plural. One Jedi, many Jedi, a gangbang involving Jedi, Return of the Jedi (or was the movie called "Return of the Jedi's" hmm?).

Also, I will inform my lawyer and demand damages from you because it was PHYSICALLY painful to even type "Jedi's".

Consider your Star Wars fan credentials (if you never had any then preemptively) revoked for life.

Wasn't Return Of the Jedi in singluar form though? There was only one Jedi in the movie

Don't quote me on it, it's been about 25 years since I've watched it lol

Anyway apologies about galactic faux pas
