Just wondering why we are calling 2016 a bad year? Not necessarily arguing, but wondering why many are calling is so.
Because so many famous people died and the stolen election.

How soon until you have another freak out and get banned again?
Shall we start an ass captain pool?
Currently at post 102. Definitely will flameout before 502.

We may be in for a long winter, his post count history is:

space captain 7699 posts before banned

space admiral 32 posts before banned

harlock 2999 posts before banned

rudra 290 posts before banned

That brings us to a average of 2,755. Yep, could be a looooooong winter
Not sure if averages apply, hopefully it's the law of trends.

Damn I am really starting to think it is the beginning of the rapture. Scared to know what the next few days will bring.
Nothing fictional like rapture will happen, that's for sure. In the meantime here is a good movie to watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9oaS_N1zsqo

Get an advanced education, kids: the days of mass employment through blue collar work are just about over.
There will always be a need for plumbers, brick layers, welders, mechanics, framers, painters and electricians for those that an advanced education is not an option.

Author Richard Adams, whose book "Watership Down" became a classic of children's literature, has died.

That was my favorite book as a kid, still probably top five. Unfortunate to hear, but 96 is a good run.
That book is one of the rare ones i still remember with fond memories, well that and The Shining.

How does Big Pharma work? Hint: every customer who is actually HEALED from his sickness by medical treatment is a LOST customer. So... Keep 'em paying. Keep 'em addicted. Keep 'em sick, but make them feel better.

So is every customer that's dead, as they'll never get any form of sickness again. But one that has been healed can get other illnesses down the road.

It's like you guys don't think too hard about this.
Why think when a conspiracy can do all the thinking for you. Did you ever notice that a conspiracy theory never holds up with the slightest bit of critical thinking.

I specifically wrote "In its basic form" not "In its literal form." I am not advocating for or against the idea; I am only saying it has the characteristics of being a Ponzi without actually being one if that makes sense.

After that basic bit, you wrote, "that's precisely what a Ponzi scheme is." And Cutter called it a classic ponzi scheme.

Like I said, even if you believe they're just stringing people along with virtual ships with no intention of releasing an actual game, that would still just be a regular old con.

Okay, now you're getting into semantics. You do realize "that's precisely what a Ponzi scheme is" is a child of the parent thought "In its basic form". In other words, they are inclusive to one another, also known as context. That being said I do agree it has the characteristics of a con; specifically, a long con. I wrote a comment about that last year.
It can't be a ponzi scheme by any definition because it's not a form of fraud in which belief in the success of a nonexistent enterprise is fostered by the payment of quick returns to the first investors from money invested by later investors.
1. The game is not nonexistent.
2. It's not an investment enterprise.
3. There are no investors.
4. Returns, in the form of money, were never part of the deal.

big pharma is sitting on so many unused formulas it would make your head spin some of them are practically outright cures to fatal diseases, some are virtually harmless painkillers, the list goes on forever in this case blocking medical marijuana isnt even the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the nasty, nasty things these guys are up to dont worry - just like every other horrifying truth, what once was regarded as lunatic conspiracy theories will eventually be mainstream sadness and outrage, (usually after its far too late) ultimately the human race is quickly reaching a period of dues paying and stress testing that IMHO they just arent prepared for in the least it will make an interesting playground for all these kids and their potential offspring
I bet ya'll did not know it was possible to pack so much crazy in such a small space.

Yes it should be. Your point?
They want to ban phone calls, the only way to do that is to collect the phones and isolate them. Lithium ion batteries catch on fire, the only way to prevent that is to store those items safely. So my point is put them in a smokeproof, fireproof, faraday cage. Kills 2 birds with one stone.
Or better yet http://phys.org/news/2015-07-bomb-proof-lining-explosion-luggage-aircraft.html
And everyone has to fly wearing only a hospital gown.

Collect all phones and electronic devices, place them in a bomb proof enclosure, return upon arrival at destination.
The in-flight magazine was good enough when I was young it should be good enough now.

It's not about bomb threats, though I doubt a bombproof enclosure is something that is even remotely feasible on any kind of airplane, let alone passanger jets.
But a smokeproof, fireproof, faraday cage is feasible.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 is definitely the top dog. I can't even think of anything else that's supposedly been in development for that long.

Star Citizen is simply not vaporware, and it should not be included on this list.
This award used to mean something besides clickbait.
