If it hadn't been done to death. Like I said, one troll, no problem, but +5 for insightful? It's not just you that makes me bitch. Try living in MS for a while, and you'll find more genuine people than anywhere else you go. At least that's been my experience. Except Ole Miss. Ole Miss sucks.
The point is your and others desires to condescend. The internet is essentially ubiquitous in Mississippi, but you wouldn't know that as you've probably never been to the state. Whatever horrible reason there is that Mississippi has something right, it can't be good, can it?
The fact that a troll posts such assholery doesn't bother me, but that this gets a +5 for Insightful is pathetic.
"How to Serve Humans" will take on a whole new meaning.
According to that, then Washington, Franklin, Jefferson, the bunch of our founding fathers, are there with them.
I think it has more to do with their being bought and paid for by other interests. Nearly free energy (a fusion reactor in the utility room) is going to take a lot of money out of politicians' pockets.
Perfect for cell phones. Now we can see large screens instead of that puny hand held thing. If someone comes up with a reasonably good controller, you've turned cell phones into a decent game/whatever platform.
I'm glad the white house has shown us how trustworthy they are.
How the hell do they propose to keep satellites and whatever other space junk there is from hitting the space "cable"? I've never seen this addressed.
BMW's going to put laser headlights on some of their new cars. Never again would I loose a headlight duel.
Now we'll find out what they would've done (or will do) to Snowden if they can get their hands on him. Or, will they hold these three hostage to try to get Snowden to give himself up?
I thought it was nice that the aliens that were taking over earth were also using C, let alone ascii characters.
I don't know what Carmack did in the business world, but he was little more than a teenager when he created the first 1st person, 3D shooter (Wolfenstein ). That was freakin fantastic at the time. Everything before that, that I remember, was 2D scrollers of one sort or another (Dragon's Lair was phony 3D). Not only did he pull that off first, he did it with a 286 computer. That's scarey impressive. That's what's so excellent about him. He followed that up with Doom (I'm skipping Spear of Destiny since it was pretty much like Wolfenstein). Each game had a generous trial version. Later Carmack made the 3D engine public, with tools for people to create their own levels. I suppose most people know that, but I don't know if most here were around and playing games when it happened. He set a fantastic precedent, and I respect the guy for a massive brain and the willingness to try to get the genre going full speed.
Satanists didn't found the country, nor a bunch of atheists, nor a bunch of gays. It was founded by a bunch of Christians almost exclusively, and it was founded primarily with respect to Christian values. When other groups found their own country, let them put up their set of values.
Some of us still say the same thing about people everywhere walking around looking at the little phones.
