Comment: Hopefully logic and reason will win this time (Score 1) 166

The skeptic in me hated the show - "Logic, Science & Reason" (Skully) always lost out to the "Supernatural & boogeyman" (Mulder). Imagine a show where, at the end, the weird supernatural was always explained by rationality. That's a show I'd like to watch, and it would be educational, too!. What I'm wanting is "Scooby Doo" endings - "The ghost/alien/monster was actually the Smoking Man!!!" - "And I would have got away with it too if it wasn't for you meddling FBI agents!!"

Comment: NOT Independent at all! (Score 1) 986

Most were well known collaborators, known to Rossi over many years. This guy has spent jail time for fraud / tax evasion. He also had a company that could turn garden waste into high grade petrol! Amazing! Heres a great breakdown of the many (many) issues with this so called independent research...

If you even have a passing interest in playing dwarf fortress... make sure you get PeridexisErrant's DF Starter Pack. In this pack you'll find useful tools such as "Dwarf Therapist", which make the game so much easier to play. Other addons also give amazing atmospheric music and sound effects! (Currently a lot of this only works the the previous version, but that will be fixed soon)

Comment: You think WE are dominant .. Meet lystrosaurus (Score 1) 235

After over 90% of all life was wiped out, for MILLIONS of years, there was only one dominant form of life. This ugly pig thing... Lystrosaurus. They were, seriously, everywhere. Very low biodiversity .. This is what happens if a single animal in the food chain is left unchecked. Let Lystrosaurus be a warning!

If you believe you have an IQ above your shoe size, and like open world sandbox games, I beg you to try this game. Its free. The only problem is that all games seem like two dimensional shadows after playing (and understanding) dwarf fortress. Download the lazy newbie pack to get half decent graphics and sound.

Comment: Three letters.. (Score 2) 1121

CMB. That's it. I love that three small letters (well, and and enter key I suppose) typed into google can debunk most of this.

But seriously, its actually quite hard to debunk that there were talking snakes/donkeys/gods etc. Its like trying to debunk an invisible pink unicorn is standing behind you.. (But how can it be invisible and pink at the same time?.. ahhh thats beyond scientific understanding!)

Hell, I like to make things run on WINE, that's a game in itself!, but untill Joe Sixpack can drop in DVD / Download-and-play-with-one-click, LINUX gaming will struggle. (Remember even WINDOWS gaming is too hard for a lot of people, with DX updates, various runtimes, licensing, etc,etc .. thus, IMHO, console sales)
