We can't keep elephants and rhinos alive, so let's clone us some mammoths...
I'm not smart enough for some of the XKCD strips...
Not as a game, mind you... I got bored out of my skull way before level 10... but the marketing videos were super. I enjoyed those. Had they made this franchise into a 3D cartoon instead of an MMO, I think they might have hit a veritable gold vein.
But as an MMO? No thanks. I have better things to do... such as staring at my wallpaper.
What is this "monthly data cap" of which you're speaking?
Thank god for Let's plays on Youtube. If I happen to find that the reviewers are right, I don't need to buy it and if I find that I disagree, I can order it after having watched a bit of gameplay. In that case, sure, I have to replay already viewed scenes, but it doesn't top the amount of frustration I get from having spent good money on yet another crappy game...
A thought just came to me: If drugs are sent to his home often enough while he has plausible deniability, if the SWAT turn up often enough without cause... at which point does this man have immunity from law's scrutiny? At some point, the police will begin to just roll their eyes and tell him to just flush the coke down the drain, won't they? It's only human.
At that point... think of all the possibilities.
Being able to populate the planet with 8 billion people that are all able to travel at greater than walking speed is bound to have an impact.
You can bet your booty that if we invented a way to power our vehicles with unicorn farts, in some way the release of so many unicorn farts would, yet again, harm the environment.
Basically it's not about having no impact but about distributing and minimizing it.
By the way, what exactly is the thought behind replacing one fossil fuel with another?
While the wording is pretty excessive, I do not think this post deserves a flamebait mod. Only that it's not limited to gamers.
And I even count myself as one of those idiots... I'm still buying Assassin's Creed games on PS3 even though I've been burned by Ubisoft repeatedly AND there hasn't been an AC game I've truly enjoyed since AC2.
So yeah, I'm pretty dumb. I acknowledge that fact.
What I'm going to do about it, though, is hack that damn console and pirate each and every game. I'm done paying before I can evaluate the quality.
How was it the reason you bought the console? If he lent you the game without having the console, how on earth did you play it?
No new console for me then *shrugs*
On the other hand, excess heat from the gas engine could be used to raise efficiency on the compression, no?
If card A has a performance of x (which I'll define as 1) and card B a performance of x+2, wouldn't that mean it's two times better?
The article keeps saying three times better, but wouldn't the correct way to phrase that be "It's three times as good?"
Similar things with percentages. If something has 200% the value of something else, it's twice as valuable and not two times more valuable, right?
I notice similar things in German, which is my main language. Am I just a grammar Nazi (badum-tis) or does that bother you too?
I think that's exactly what the parent poster said: Without storage capabilities or the means to redistribute the energy across the world from anywhere to anywhere at any time, base load is still the most important factor. And in this, I absolutely agree.
Not that we shouldn't use wind and solar, mind you. We should just stop fantasizing about it replacing nuclear anytime soon.
Nerds build stuff nobody else thought of or with material nobody ever expected to work that way.
Nerds like to build things in unusual ways for the enjoyment of succeeding at it.
What nerds don't do is spending hours building stuff they need that they could have shipped to them for little money and is plug and play. At least the intelligent nerds don't do that.
Now if these products do not satisfy, that is a completely different matter.
No, no, no... we are quibbling as much about the actual cause as we quibble about semantics... and if we can't quibble about those things, we'll quibble about the effects. And during all those shenanigans, we're playing the blame-game.
You didn't really think this was about identifying and solving a problem, did you?
