Why was the city even established in such a terrible place? Didn't the surveyors notice the elevation was bellow sea level?

This is one of the problems with open source development; people will spend endless hours perfecting the buggy whip; not to mention coming up with new, competing buggy whip designs.
Yeah, how DARE they spend their own time doing what they like! Don't they know that they should be productive and do what sunderland56 deems more important?!
It is a big dungeon, mate! A really big dungeon! You know, with torture chambers, torture mistresses and such.
No. Dungeon Keeper could do it all without the massive system requirements!
What an awesome game it was... Ironic that it was EA that published it.
As a non-native English speaker, I struggle to understand the meaning of the "Just Saying" statement. It is always done as a last statement though, so sounds passive-aggressive.
Is it supposed to be something like "Not expecting a reply" or "I don't think about what I've written"?
Layoffs = accelerated attrition of your best talent
Only assuming that the company does not have deadwood. In my experience: every single company over a certain size have people that are completely useless, only useful in very small area or got attitude/communication issues.
Layoffs are not always a bad thing. It all depends on how good management is recognizing a person's value to the core business. If they are terrible, it results in loss of knowledge, capability and destroyed morale. But if they know how to do layoffs right, it streamlines and revitalizes a company.
So the shit that is not medicine is either never been proven to work (Thus you place your faith in some salesman pushing it) or it has been tested and failed to produce results statistically better than a placebo.
Either way, it is foolish to take that stuff. Even if it is innert, it still prevents people from seeking real treatments because they believe that they are already doing something about it.
And some alternative medicine is just blatantly useless and still popular. See Homeopathic dilution.
Obsidian? The only WoT game I know of was done by Legend Entertainment.
Despite the books being terrible, I actually really enjoyed that game. The powers and counter mechanics were very nicely done. Also the level design was awesome.
Look at the title of the story you are replying in: It is billionaires that are funding it. Nothing about public funds being discussed here.
You just seem to trying to find any excuse in order to troll the space enthusiasts of this site.
What's so special about our particular DNA configuration that we would have to preserve it at huge costs ?
We are the only living organism in the known Universe that possess such a high level of intelligence. Until we discover another species that can plan thier survival on interstellar basis, we are special and worth preserving.
That is very insightful and eye opening.
Thank you for posting this. It is rare gems like these that make this site worthwhile.
I am part of this generation. I have no answers to your questions. All I can do is feel ashamed and speculate.
My guess is that my generation is spoiled rotten. We never had any challenges or widespread hardships compared to the generations prior. Baby boomers dealt with Cold War. The Greatest Generation before them fought in World War 2. We got everything delivered to us on a silver platter, so we never learned to appreciate it or even learnt concepts of respect.
What the activists did in Peru is discusting beyond words. All I can do is hope that they are a horrible exception and that (Degenerate though as we are) the rest of this generation are not as bad as them.
A pity how poorly he was treated after the war's end by the very country he fought so hard to protect!
Dear Dr Ian Malcom,
Could you please shut the fuck up already with your constant, preachy whining?! We are all sad that the T-Rex couldn't do his job properly and rid us of your hollier-than-thou attitude when it had the chance!

I shudder to think what this giant Wooly Mammoth intends to do with those scantily clad hot women...
Why not just put that ring on a chain and wear it around your neck like a necklace? This is what my electrician friend does.
