We're probably only a couple administrations away from NASA being closed down entirely, sadly. I don't have much hope for private sector space exploration because the truly bleeding edge of space exploration is always going to involve a lack of profit and unknown risks. Something shareholders will never be able to get behind.

I remember when I was a kid, they were talking about Mars like it was something we were going to do before the 20th century was out. Now I'm not sure I'll even see it in my lifetime, especially with my shitty health.

Congress doesn’t want you to eat your dog or cat

I've always wondered why meat eaters were so arbitrary in the meat they chose to eat.

It's just availability, I think. People generally eat what they are raised to eat, and think other stuff is weird. Cultural momentum. At some point in certain countries people probably needed to eat dog and cat because it was cheap or highly available, and it just stuck around.

In countries where they eat dogs and cats, people still have dogs and cats as pets, so it's not really just a "pets not food" thing.

Here is the real mind bender though: Now that affordable artificially grown meat is closer to reality, there's really no limit on what meat you could ethically consume.

You could literally become an ethical cannibal, and have Human Burgers for dinner. Imagine if someone decides to market that shit, and people actually find out it's delicious. Holy fuck.

It's like getting angry at a poker machine for not paying out. Game development is a gamble. Even the best teams have failures and canceled projects. The weakness of kickstarter is that you are committed to them regardless. Save your money, buy things when they release and get reviews. No anger or disapointment. Easy.

I didn't even back his games, I just think he's a shit developer who shouldn't be asking people for money.

I'm not sure how much more content can be crammed into one game.
I'm all for more events and stuff, but espionage abilities would be a good start... better battle resolution and interface for sure... better research tree management, better pirate mechanics, etc.

Stellaris is still incredibly boring, imo. I have put in 50 hours and the game really drags in spots and some stuff just feels under developed. I prefer Distant Worlds far more than Stellaris, but I'm open minded and will keep at Stellaris... one of these DLC will eventually make the game fun.

Man I tried to like Distant Worlds but I can't read the interface on my monitor. The text is too small. And I can't seem to find anything that will actually scale it.

Has anyone experienced the same thing?

Neo-McCarthyism thriving...

Ya, because securing your hardware type of warning is the worst kind of anti russian propaganda....

According to some people around here, mostly people who squat around in a tracksuit and drink lots of vodka, being critical of Russia at all is "McCarthyism." Despite the fact that Russia is not a communist country, and McCarthy was mainly concerned with finding American communists.

This bill is incredibly awful, and it's depressing that it has virtually universal bipartisan support. And of course Trump will rubberstamp anything that comes across his desk to look like he's actually doing some work and not just jerking off to Fox and Friends.

Not that he really had a choice here, though.

Diversity is great because you get more points of view and it helps you not find yourself in a bubble. However, I don't think it should be expected or actively pursued in every field. Sometimes the people interested in one particularly thing just aren't as diverse as the people interested in something else.

We should examine situations to see whether there's some systemic roadblock keeping other types of people out of these fields, but if it's simply a lack of interest I'm not sure what you're supposed to do. Almost no profession or hobby reflects the demographic of the general populous.

Amazon's "Lord of the Rings" To Run Five Seasons.

I love a good fantasy romp as much as the next guy, but there are so many undeveloped properties out there. Why this one again?

If you're going to spend a zillion dollars making something, you aren't going to add the extra risk of doing something no ones ever heard of.

It's not like this is just a long form adaptation of the source material anyway. It's more of a spinoff.

That said, I'm still holding out hope that someone will give a World of Darkness TV series another shot some day. Kindred: The Embraced was pretty decent for its time. You could do something much much better today.

Translation:

"Now that Shadow of War microtransactions have dried to a trickle, we're going to remove them and generate a bunch of free press, which should turn in to X number of additional sales."

I doubt that's their thinking on this. After all, it shoots them in the foot for their next title. They won't be able to do microtransactions at all without getting crucified.
