Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!

I found the rules on Wikipedia for Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots:
their robot punch at their opponent's robot. If a robot's head is hit with sufficient force at a suitable angle, the head will overextend away from the shoulders, signifying that the other player has won the round
I used to ride bikes all the time as a kid, but that was in rural Oregon...
The last time I tried bicycling was in urban India and it was just too frightening trying to negotiate traffic. I was with an Indian friend who was comfortable enough (beyond being on a bicycle instead of a motorcycle) but he'd zip through intersections and I'd be left behind, not ready to run a red light, unsure whether to go to the left or the right of an oxcart and afraid of hitting pedestrians...
Now I live in NYC and I'm often tempted to try bicycling, but I'm not comfortable with the traffic. It's so much busier than rural Oregon.

In other words, just another day of business as usual...
Why not work on the diplomacy?

It left junk... Kind of like shooting a bullet at it, really. So...if I shoot a bullet into the air and it lands somewhere, I can stake a claim to it? COOOL!
That depends, how many more bullets do you have?
The last thing the world needs is another pissing contest over new territory
It'd be something new instead of the existing pissing contests over existing territory...
Animated dinosaur cursors?
Don't knock animated dinosaur cursors... I used to work for a company in the 90's, PC-Kwik, that sold a package of cursors, including dinosaur ones. Granted, it wasn't our main product, just something for the sales people to upsell for a few dollars more once they had customers on the phone.
That's why there's Bing.
