It wasn't a sound stage in Nevada, it was a sound stage on mars. Get your facts right.
Re: Wheres the ambition?
Why are people like you never happy? This project has a robot/probot/whatever which makes it cool, it will then take place on another planet which makes it cooler, and then it will do something that is a great challenge, that makes it both even cooler and something worthwhile. Learn to love the world a bit.
Re: Not quite sure...
You are not the only one, thats what made me stop playing, I cant remember the exact wording but one of the NPCs said she felt "really current" at winning something or other, that alone made me stop playing, games are supposed to be fun, not whiny emo stuff with phrases that make literally no sense.
Why is it, that with all this advancement of human knowledge even if its not the boson, is that if it isn't, will Hawking get his money back?
Amazing photos, although I cant decide if the crease I am seeing in the first photo of earth is some kind of light effect or not. Can anyone shed any light?
Most of the "triple A" still do, bet you would be lucky to get 10 hours out of the new CoD for the £50 price, so not much has changed.
Note: I refuse to count online play, there will always be issues like the servers becoming totally deserted the second the new one is released, if you can connect to them at all and so on.
Gimme FF 3 any day, at least 40 odd if not more hours of play and I can get it for a tenner.
Re: Three light minutes a week?
The dates at the bottom definatly say 20 and 21 of oct.
Re: "Serious Crime Bill"?
Ah, its probably a different version than the one I am thinking of then
I thought it was obvious enough that the joke icon wasn't needed?
Re: "Serious Crime Bill"?
If this is the sketch I think it is, its not python, its the two ronnies + stephen fry,
He sits in a chair and tells pointless stories that dont go anywhere? And is unable to act like he knows which way up a musical instrument goes?
Its about time, I spent most of my childhood, and more of my adulthood than I care to admit, wondering why I don't live in a Sci Fi funland, if real world stuff starts to look a lot more like the old films and comics, bring it on.
Re: The trouble with "older" sci-fi...
"Night's Dawn universes would make much better TV" This, or at least a 3 part film although even then it wouldn't do it justice
"All four officers have been put on gardening leave with full pay while an investigation is carried out."
Oh poor them, they must feel like they getting the worst punishment in the world.
Re: Thumbs Down
Whats a circle apart from a square that is unable to use a shaving razor properly?
@AC It is also illegal as buggery. Best not get caught with that thing.
Just out of interest say you used it on the bus in a remote location, something happens that means you cant turn it off, what then? Mobile phones may be irritating but considering the upsides, I can tune them out quite easily.
Re: @ MyffyW
NYC, well the game version Liberty city its called, which is based off New york with extra bits.
I am one of those sad people that would kind of enjoy that, but then I am one of those weirdos that use the metro on GTA 4 and have the routes memorised so I am probably the person least suited to talk about fun in games.
My main issue with stuff like this is not so much the design but the material it is made out of. It might just be me but the weave in standard office chairs, the blue kind with the back that breaks the second you look at it, feels like sandpaper to me, I don't know if anyone else gets this but I just find it horrible.
I like RPGs and RPG elements, take something like prototype. I struggle against the enemys go away and do a few non combat side missions upgrade and suddenly everything I look at turns into paste, maybe its just I like being petty but I also like seeing my character grow stronger with the effort.
Don't agree there tankards are manly and the handle is handy after a few. Glasses particularly those poncy European ones are awful.
You need to look again. I know there are others in Mojang but take a look at some of the stuff notch himself has done, he worked on Wurm online for a time where the base idea for minecraft came from, and he has done a lot of stuff for the ludlum dare contest, and Mojang have a second game called scrolls which is a TCG admitidly still in beta but its looking quite good.
Thats fine, what isnt is it accessing the GPS, internet contacts and god knows what else, You do not need to read my contacts to turn on the light.
Re: Stuff that. What about getting *rid* of this space crap?
Until the bigger stuff gets through and slams into a retirement home/puppy rescue center/Pizza place.
Re: Re "which could potentially bypass missile defences"
what to do in the four minute warning. Thats easy find the nearest bar and the nearest person of preferred gender, if I am going to get turned to radioactive dust clouds I may as well go happy.
Re: Can't wait to miss that
It wasn't suspended animation in the unconscious I wake up 70 years in the future to discover its a totalitarian hell hole that things ad jingles are music, they are still conscious for a lack of a better term and are forced to relive the crime constantly as a punishment. I admit I don't know what the physiological long term effects of that would be but thats what happened.
Re: It's a tarp
Oompa Loompa pron? Already been done mate
(Well I assume so, there are certain things not even I will search for, but rule 34 and all that)
Is it me or does everything seem to be suffering from an unspecified glitch lately?

Re: Once braked into a stable orbit...
In peter hamiltons nights dawn trilogy he explains this exact thing, basically the asterioids are moved into orbit, the ore is liquidized and foamed, then launched down onto the planet using aerobrake and lands into the sea. I will admit it is weaponised 30 seconds later but its something.
Re: > Let's see how that works out in practice...
Theory is when you know why something should work but it doesn't, practice is where something works and you don't know why. Where I work we combine both.
Re: I still want my 1TB iPod "Classic"
If you just want it for music I can recommend the sansa clip plus. Has expandable memory for micro SD and while the screen is very simple it seems to last ages on a charge.
Re: anyone wearing one who wants to talk to me
I cant find it but I am sure that there was an article on here about that very scenario, cant quite remember the outcome but it was something like they have to be provably off, ie not wearing them or something. Can't quite remember.
I don't really have anything useful to add, I just want to say that the word "podule" is fun to say. Podule podule podule.
Re: "first known example"
They did, as did gadget show too
Re: not much use...
What about the Managerium?
Have to admit I play FTB, don't know of any servers running that.
Damn you, now I have to try that, so much for getting work done today.
Re: Dammit, it's always Hal
Because female robotic voices sound like they come from a computerised Monty Python style pepperpot woman.
The super nova advert worked perfectly, the nova 5 went a little awry
Re: USA had Desert Storm..
I might be remmebering this one but didnt top gear have a few incidents with portable bogs?
Could be the next series might be in korea.
Butthurt is not used as a homophobic thing on the internet at least, it basically defines this exact "teacher teacher the mean boy looked at me" mentality displayed by the ULA with this exchange. The only one getting offended here was you.
"...from the likely (a car stopping at a red light) to the unlikely (blowing through it)." He has never seen the traffic round here then.
Its not really the same as having your own system but there are quite a few online SDRs, I go on http://www.160m.net/ myself. (requires Java)
Re: In this particular case, why bother?
Always wondered about the point of a fallout shelter besides peace of mind, I was born in the late 80s so I missed the nuclear crises so maybe its just because of that I don't get it. And even if it would help who still has a fully stocked shelter today? I have seen some odd sets of stairs and odd coloured concrete slabs with those slots for removal in places around my universities campus which I have never seen people use, admittedly that's not proof of shelters but hidden in plain sight and all that. Surely they still wont be actively stocked?
Re: Is it my age?
Mid 20s here so close to the intended audiences age on social media. I get that urge too, never understood it.
