I love to shoot helpless animals. YEEEEEEEEEEEEEHAAWWWW. It makes me feel like a man despite my micro penis when I use a gun that someone way smarter than me made.

Yep, 'cause mankind never killed animals until rich dorks decided to shoot them with guns for entertainment. Rolleyes

I'm strongly opposed to other methods of animal harm too. But the game isn't about that so I didn't feel the need to mention it. And that's a stupid argument anyway, you're trying to justify something because of "other people do it/did it". That kind of reasoning would allowed me to rape, murder and do whatever else humanity does that isn't ethical. Because other people do those things...it makes it all fine

I know right? I guess it would be telling to remind him that humanity is rife with examples. For example, the ancient Assyrians loved to hunt animals for sport. Assyrian king Ashurbanipal [Ash-Er-Ban-Eh-Pool] (687-627 BC) had lions captured, imported and then released. The British Museum and Its Collections states, "the hunt itself was often more of a massacre than a contest."* (page 245, just above paragraph 8) The Assyrians also hunted humans in ruthless warfare. At Nahum 3:1, Bible writer Nahum referred to Ninevah (the Assyrian capital) as a "city of bloodshed," and with good reason. Soldiers played catch with human heads. Ashurbanipal once boasted, "Many captives from among them I burned with fire ... From some, I cut off their noses, their ears, and their fingers ... of many I put out the eyes. I made one pillar of the living, and another of heads."

I think a video game about hunting virtual wild animals is considerably better.

* you can see the Assyrians killing a lion via an Assyrian wall carving on pages 246-247 of the British Museum collection catalog.

So because people hunted for food out of necessity in the past, and because some other people in history were brutal, we should tolerate the animal suffering for sport and to boost someone's ego?

Honestly I'm glad if people play this game instead of going out to kill real animals who don't want to die for someone's misguided sense of pleasure. But what I'm saying is that the people who hunt in real life, this day and age, as massive c**ts.

If they want to bring back extinct species, it should be ones that actually still have an environment to live in. Especially those that have gone extinct due to humanities doing. It would be ethical then.

But it's not ethical to bring back a creature for entertainment. That's wrong.

Where I live, when patients are too big to fit in the hospital CT machine, they actually send them to the local zoo, because they have a CT scanner big enough for zoo animals.

"Your turn is next, right after the rhino is finished, sir."

How embarrassing :S

That wasn't a TV series in the normal sense, more of a miniseries. A Dune series on the scale of the Battlestar Galactica remake, if well done, would be very cool.

Indeed!

btw they are rebooting the Dune series again

It's official -- Legendary Pictures has signed the very talented Denis Villeneuve to direct the exciting new DUNE series film project.

Now that's actually a movie that needs rebooting. The first half of it is excellent, but then they ran out of money or time or both, because the 2nd half of the movie is really rushed. Perhaps it needed to be several movies or a even a series.

Yeah if only someone made a Dune TV series, that would be awesome...

PETA do a lot of good awareness raising, but this seems a bit misguided, and hurts their credibility.

Also I'm pretty sure that in the 41st millennium they would be wearing faux fur, with carbon reinforcement to withstand endless war, and open space.

You get to make choices

What's the bet this will just be a cover based meat-grinder?

A chemical imbalance in the brain could be causing people to exercise less, study finds.

Glad to see they are acknowledging that weight loss has very little to do with exercise.


Oh and Happy New Year to all of those that survived 2016

I'm ready to chomp down on Battlefield 1 but it's a rough time trying to find a retailer who isn't asking $65+ even when on sale.

Anyone know if Origin uses regional pricing? Because it's 40% off which brings it down to $48 from the $80 standard price which matches the Canadian price of new AAA titles.

GreenManGaming had it for a good price before it was released, not sure what it's like now though.

That's why you'll see me in this section often responding to health related news articles, and promoting books by Dr. Michael Greger, Dr. Neal Barnard, Dr. Cadwell Esselstyn, Dr. John McDougall, T. Colin Campbell, Dr. Dean Ornish and so on. I believe these are truly non-biased portals to honest health research.

Is there a big difference among the various programs by these doctors? Dr. Esselstyn's seems stricter than Ornish's for example.

That's true Dr. Esselstyn does seem a bit stricter. It could be because he was trying to reverse the cardiovascular disease in older people, rather than preventing it in younger people, so it might take more effort to reverse the years of damage. Or maybe because he's old and that's just how things were done back then lol, I'm not really sure

But they all in all, they are all essentially advocating a whole foods plant based way of eating.

A good one to start with is The Negative Calorie Effect by Neal Barnard, it's a very short book, so it spends more time explaining the overall principles instead of getting into the details of the research. And on the opposite there is How Not To Die by Dr. Greger, which almost entirely explains research one by one if you like the details.
