The end of the episode actually does make me cry a little. Saddest damn thing I've ever seen in a cartoon.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I'm so glad that others feel this way.
Completely agree with you on that episode. "The Late Philip J. Fry" is perhaps one of the best episodes of the entire series. In fact, I think it holds up pretty dang well just as pure science fiction. Take out the comedic elements and it would make a short story to make Ellison proud. Or something like that. I really enjoyed it, is what I'm saying.
"There. . . are. . . FOUR. . . lights!"
Didn't know I wasn't logged in. Though I'd post this again as me.
You, sir, are absolutely correct in your assessment of us. And I, for one, wish to apologize for the behaviors you describe. Please be aware, however, that the people you describe only account for roughly half of our population. Unfortunately, the nature of our political system means the rest of us are almost completely powerless to move the country forward with all that dead weight dragging us back. Maybe in another generation or two. Sigh.
Maybe that's because most PC manufacturers use Apple as an R&D department.
The surplus still existed. Unemployment was still low. The ranks of the working poor was still a fraction of what it is now.
The original poster is incorrect.
"republican and democratic politicians are to blame."
There, fixed that for you. Lets not sink to their level. I promise not to call them rethugs, or republicants, or anything like that, if you promise to call the Democrats by their proper name. We can all do better.
". . . but since they donate to the Democratic party they remain unraided."
There. Fixed that for you.
I don't really understand how this game is even played multiplayer. I played all the way through D1 and D2 many, many times, and never felt the need to go on-line with them. The story is based on a single hero, and is long enough to require the player to stop and save the game periodically. How can that be adapted to a multiplayer setting? How is that even fun. Diablo is a single-player game at its core; adding more players seems a bit tacked on to me.
"The connector features a rounded plug lever to prevent bending or breaking and direction marks to indicate correct direction for connecting cable."
Wow. A ROUNDED plug lever! And direction marks! All for a mere 10 grand? I'll take two!
Do STBs really use more energy than things which push heat around?
It didn't say that set top boxes draw more than a new refrigerator, it said that some home theatre "configurations" draw more power than a refrigerator, ie. STB, media PC, HD TV, surround sound system, game console (or 3), etc.
Just wondering if anyone got the firefly reference in the series of progress messages you get when you try to actually find a match.
"If a civilization is so fucking retarded that it worships an invisible man in the sky, then one can't really take their prediction of the end of the world seriously, don't you think?"
There, fixed that for you, typos and all.
Hmmm. Seeing as how I've replayed Deus Ex more that any other game, I'd have to disagree with you. I still have it on my hard drive, in fact. Perhaps you're thinking of its sequel, Invisible War?
