I use the harmonica riff from Once Upon a Time in the West as my cell ring tone. I have yet to hear that on any other phone.

I remember going to the theater to see Blade Runner shortly after it opened in 1982. We were so starved for serious science fiction movies then. All we had prior to this was 2001 and Alien (I might put Empire Strikes Back in there). 35 years ago? Man I am feeling old.

Holy shitballs that's an insane shot. 10 seconds to reach the target? Guy must have been sitting down or something. I love how they mention the US would have just dropped a bomb and killed all the civies in the area as well, lol, so true.


Before reading this my thought (jokingly) was he must have taken the curvature of the Earth into account. Then I read at that distance they do! Sneaky

Why Mars? No Magnetic Field = No protection against radiation.

Europa with it's huge supply of water would probably be much more ideal as a space base.

Re: E3 2017: Video-game industry optimistic, cautious about U.S. political climate, trade group leader says.

Quote from above referenced story: "Like other technology-industry trade groups, the ESA weighed in against the Trump administration’s travel ban, since suspended by the courts, that was applied to citizens of several Muslim-majority countries.

“It was a bad approach, bad idea, bad delivery,” Gallagher said."


Best focus on your business, I fail to see how the travel ban impacts the game industry. Unless your are working on Grand Theft Jihad.

NMS: 558 players on average over the past month, per Steam stats. Sad for a game that peaked at 212321.


Guess I was one of those 558. Hadn't played in a while, but decided it was time to leave Euclid, so last week I jumped to the center and emerged in the Hilbert Dimension. But that about does it for me unless they release more content. Still seems odd Hello Games thought the payoff for reaching the big goal of getting to the center should be restarting in an identical system with a new name. Idea

I actually liked Prometheus way better since all I wanted to see was a Space Jockey and more mysteries and that's what I got out of it.

This is what I don't understand. They left with wanting to go to the Founders homeworld. Wtf happened to that? Now that could have been interesting.

I am hoping the director's cut on Blu-Ray may add something more as it did with Prometheus. I agree that this movie should have dealt more with the Engineer's homeworld called "Paradise". What we saw in this film didn't appear to me to be that. The inhabitants of this planet only looked "engineer-like". There was speculation of two factions of the Engineers - the Creators, and the Destroyers. Ridley seemed focused on evolving the proto-xenomorphs into the Alien xenomorph. I don't really care much about that. And I really didn't need to see more face huggers, chest busters, or back busters. And the whole "I'm in charge but nobody respects me" angst of the schlub in charge was tedious.

How about Far Cry 6 being centered around a greedy game company headquarters. Your mission is to stop them from gutting the public through cash grabbing pre-orders, season passes, microtransaction swag... Rotfl

As someone who is actually in the "Heartland" I consider Montana as being in the "West". I guess the coast snowflakes (not you Blue of course) consider everything not on the coasts as "Heartland". Protest

Re: CDC warns about parasites, toxic gas at public pools.

This is the second story I've seen in the past few days about crypto in pools that correctly states chlorine will not take care of this organism. But none have stated what will, better filtration that achieves absolute 1 micron filtration. It is easier/cheaper to throw more chlorine at the problem than to upgrade a filtration system.

Uh maybe because the target demographic for these shows is 95% white male. I really have zero interest in watching shows with a liberal agenda of inclusivity where every other character has to be a multi-racial pansexual quasi-dwarf.


What Cutter just said... Thumbsup

Re: Experts warn of increases in tick-borne Powassan virus.

What are the chances this is another escapee from Plum Island? I'm beginning to think Oak Mites might fall into that category as well. Zombie

So is this a precious metal year? Is there a standardized list of what anniversary year demands a certain type of gift? Or is that another gimmick invented by jewelry companies?
