It's a shame...I seem to remember Willits made some of my favorite Quake maps.

I could never really get into Rune when it came out, although I loved the look of it. The platform aspects and huge confusing levels killed it for me. I remember being stuck on the first real level for hours, in the first damn cave.

Seeing all of the little crescents of the eclipse projected by the leaves of the trees onto the ground was neat...the eclipse itself wasn't that fun.

And what is the connection to Micheal Bay in all of this? Seriously -- I'm not trying to be a jerk. I don't understand what it is you are trying to say...

Im trying to say that 20, 100, 500 years from now no one is going to remember who Michael Bay was and what he did for a living. His movies will not stand the test of time.

What, no Transformers in the Park performances?

I love Better Call Saul, but if they continue it on much longer, I won't be able to suspend my disbelief in Bob Odenkirk playing a younger Saul than in Breaking Bad. Or Mike for that matter...he's looking pretty rough lately.

Dammit, I just started to replay Diablo 2. Sure, it looks terrible on lcd monitors (it looked terrible back in the crt days too), but it is still addictive as hell.

I never realized Jay Wilson was the guy who made all the good maps for Blood. He is also the project lead for the abortion that was Blood 2.

One of my first computer games (along with Star Control 1). Played it on a 286, and didn't have a sound card. Was much later when I finally discovered that the nazis said things.

I've gotten over my initial puzzlement over their choice of Idris for Roland, but that trailer didn't leave me hopeful about the movie. The scene where he loads his revolvers by somehow catching the bullets in the revolvers' cylinders in midair just dripped of Hollywood action movie crap. I'm afraid they're turning The Dark Tower into The Fast and The Furious, Mid-World Edition.

Also, I was disappointed by what was shown of McConaughey. Flagg is a character that would benefit from his more eccentric performances, and they didn't indicate that that would be the direction he was taking. He just looks like your typical action movie bad guy. Oh well, wait and see i guess.

Shame on you Hollywood...you have forgotten the face of your father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate.

Westinghouse goes bankrupt? Somewhere Tesla is dancing. With a pigeon.


About that. Westinghouse was the guy who firmly believed in Tesla's AC model and provided the funding to make it happen.

Though Westinghouse today is a subsidiary of Toshiba.

If anything, he'd be a lot more joyous if Edison's descendant companies all went out of business.

Westinghouse also screwed Tesla out of royalties. The original contract said that Tesla would get a royalty on ever kilowatt generated, but Westinghouse realized this would be a huge amount of money. So he begged Tesla to forfeit the royalties, saying his board would kick him out otherwise. Tesla agreed, as he felt that Westinghouse was the only one who believed in his ideas. Tesla died penniless.

Highlighting how oblivious you are to Trump's ACTUAL corruption while still talking about Hillary's "alleged" corruption just makes you look like a complete moron.

You know how they say you can't shame the shameless? Well, you can't inform the morons. Information is their kryptonite, hence their love of "fake news". Ugh, tired of hearing that term applied to anything they don't like.

Man's body 'dissolved' by Yellowstone hot spring after seeking place to swim.

Hard to believe an entire human body could dissolve in a pool of water in 24 hours. Crazy.

Also, too: Darwin award winner.

When I visited Yellowstone, the amount of stupidity on display from other visitors was amazing. Walking too close to buffalo, touching boiling water (with a sign nearby in multiple languages saying water was scalding hot)...I picked up a book in the gift shop called Death in Yellowstone. Good read. This guy certainly wasn't the first person to hop in a hot spring.

The thing I'm taking solace in at this point is that since the GOP will control all three branches of government, they will be 100% responsible for their actions. That means that if and when they take regulatory and legislative action that actively fucks citizens and consumers, there will be no one to blame but the GOP. Governing parties always lose seats in midterms, and if the GOP follows through on their stated agenda, they will quickly find themselves in the minority. The only question is how much of the damage they inflict will be reversible, such as common carrier classification, versus irreversible, such as abandoning NATO.

Wishful thinking. They're gonna get some mileage out of the "Thanks Obama..." meme for a long time. Mark my words, they'll say something like "it will take a long time to get us out of the mess that Obama created". Oh, and as for 2018, there are 6 democratic seats up for re-election...in red states.

Lot of Russian trolls on today. Yah..."zero reason" to go into Syria...other than ISIS, which has attacked us and our allies...maybe the Great Pumpkin-Elect will actually put up or shut up on that campaign promise and do something about them (of course, Pooty Poot won't allow it).

RE: Fleeing to Canada
Trump will also build a wall in the north, but all the guards will be looking SOUTH from the wall... Like in the good old GDR! People who get caught trying to escape will be tortured, because torture makes people tell the truth! FACT! RE: witch hunts and painful interrogations of witches!

More like, Canada will build an ice wall, to keep the white walkers out.
