Mars is a lost cause anyway. What would we do when we get there? Pat ourselves on the back, poke the soil a bit, learn what we already know and later become abandoned like the Moon?

If anything, shift that budget in to one of the many moons which actually have reasons to be further explored.

While the destination is somewhat debatable, Mars is considered to be the easiest target, and the one we know the most variables about.

Yeah, I have to agree. Other than "because it is there", there isn't much reason to go to Mars. If we ever get the technology to do some true terraforming, then it would make sense. I don't see happening in the next 100 years. Maybe it is poor perception on my part, but the rate of change in technology seems to be slowing some in the last decade or so...

Manned exploration is good for public image, and not much else. In other words, its the thing that keeps space in the public eye, and keeps the public willing to fund it. Robots are better and less risky, but aren't as sexy to the general public. You need a manned goal to keep things rolling, even if 99% of your launches are probes.

Also the technologies developed for manned space travel sometimes lead to intermediate technologies that can be used for other stuff here on Earth.

This is evidently fixed, but GTA Online was unplayable for almost the entirety of yesterday, except in the morning.

They should make this a feature. One that crashes hackers the second the server detects that a client is trying to dictate the state of another client. 3 crashes in one day = perma-ban. Then they could lower the price of in-game shit due to all the hackers having to buy new keys for the game. Win-win.

Some hacker put weird egg things on everyone in the lobby I was in a few days ago. I was quite proud of my egg, but the next time I died it vanished. Other times the hackers aren't quite so benign.

The only thing that's ever amazed me is how cheaply they're bought. I mean most deals are worth millions if not billions and these guys are only taking a few lousy grand. Well, I guess until they take their board member positions as Id said. Must be nice work if you can get it, eh?

Many-to-many relationship, so the corporations have to buy out a lot of people in a lot of places, and are trying to save money. But on the other hand the congress critters can get a few grand from each of hundreds of companies. So the relatively small bribes add up without the burden on any one giant corporation being too high. Wonderful system!

By Senators do they mean future board members?

No, that's too circumspect. SCOTUS determined it no longer has to be hidden, so they mean the Senators who openly take money from AT&T as bribes.

You've never seen representatives as happy as when they no longer had to pretend they weren't being bribed. Now they can just flat-out say "I'm a corporate whore, and I sold my ass for $15K to <insert corporation here>!"

They'll actually hold press conferences where they are presented one of those giant fake checks like Publisher's Clearing House.

Lulz. Apparently 58% "Republicans and Republican-leaning independents (58%) now say that colleges and universities have a negative effect on the country, up from 45% last year."

85% say "the news media has a negative effect."

I love the random numbers Trumpians pull out of their ass with regards to voter fraud. Millions and milions of fraudulent votes yet no one can seem to find any proof or even seems to be giving a real effort at looking.

If it were true, wouldn't it be in the Republicans best interest to find the fraud and expose it? Why isn't congress pushing a full investigation, instead of this being done through the White House as a charade?

Timmeh stop sniffing the chemtrails bro. They are turning the frogs gay.

Sorry, I tried to think like someone that would actually support this but my brain started to hurt. This is one of the dumbest things I've read this year and 2017 has no shortage of contenders.

85% of Republicans think Trump is doing a good job.

Things have become so tribal, that Republicans can't think straight.

Republicans have been drinking more and more party-loyalty Kool Aid as time goes on. They've always been good at falling in line, but having such a dangerously incompetent piece of shit in the White House has shown that there is truly no limit to what they'll tolerate as long as you're on the right team. Evangelicals supporting a guy like Trump is basically proof of this.

Meanwhile on the Democrat side, they have the opposite problem. A lot of us think the Dems need to move much further left and actually be the liberal party. But we also have a vocal minority in the left obsessing over identity politics and generally alienating other liberals. There's a very contentious relationship between liberals and the Democratic party, as opposed to the loyal soldier relationship that conservatives have with the Republicans.

Deus Ex: Revision vs. GMDX 9.0, which is better?

GMDX is more faithful to the original in terms of level design/visual changes. It's mostly just texture upgrades rather than big re-works. But it changes the actual gameplay a lot more. But I believe the latest GMDX has an extensive options menu for that stuff too...

There is a pattern behind the US presidencies: After 8 years of a total moron running everything into the ground, the US goes for 8 years with an actual thinking person. Followed by another 8 years of a rabid, fist shaking orangutan. In just 7 years, there will be another real homo sapiens trying to fix the previous 8 years.

Eh the pattern doesn't really hold. Reagan + Bush Sr was 12 years of the same stupid shit, and before that it falls apart completely.

The antibiotics resistant strains of bacteria are likely going to wind up being a far more deadly problem than Global Warming...

I mean, don't get me wrong, Global Warming is terrifying, and it will affect everyone's lives (though more those of the next two generations.) But you can mitigate the effects somewhat.

Dying because of a simple infection, because there is no way to treat the infection, is straight back to the fucking Middle Ages. Better buy stock in leeches again. :\

And all because fucking doctors kept proscribing the shit when people had a fucking flu, and because the damned agriculture industry kept feeding it to their lifestock.

Well, those money-grubbing cavemen doctors fixed my hernia. It's really easy to bash the medical industry from the comfort of your computer chair, but when real people have really positive results from doctors you should look at that too.

Not to derail things but aren't you a JDubz? Like, surgery is bad because you can't get a transfusion? I mean hernia operation isn't exactly a bloodbath normally but...

Some think that he dumbs his speech down to the plebeians vernacular, but I don't see him being smart enough to consistently do that all the time.

I mean sooner or later he would have to slip up and say something intelligent. Time will tell I guess.

You can't fake what's wrong with Trump. Nevermind saying something intelligent, you would say something that you think sounds stupid but inadvertently reveals that you're more knowledgeable about a subject then you let on.

It's not just about his speaking style, he has never given any indication that he has any knowledge of any sort regarding US policy, foreign or domestic. He doesn't even appear to have any strongly held opinions that don't change from week to week.

His inability to actually shut the fuck up when it's in his best interest, or in the best interest of the country, is one of many signs that he's emotionally unfit to be President, not just intellectually.

He is utterly incompetent. It's like a drunken chimp with an AK-47.

According to my power company the power in my area comes from:

80.5% Hydroelectric
9.2% Nuclear
4.9% Coal
3.1% Wind
1.8% Natural Gas
0.5% Other
