who made "Troops" and give them and "Robot Chicken" the whole damned franchise. Oh, and pull your lightsabers on Lucas if he says ANYTHING about it. Otherwise nuke it from space. It's the only way to be sure (meta-allusions are fun).
is that, even after finding out that the kid's project was harmless, they went to his house and inspected his garage. There was no rational suspicion of wrongdoing, no evidence to justify further investigation. I can only assume that this was the "We always have to be absolutely sure" excuse used far too often to go where they don't have a real right to.
Welcome to the Game Grid.
I've heard rumors that a similar notice is waiting at the offices in Alpha Centauri, but I haven't been out that way yet.
"Producing" a Higgs in this sense only means detecting its presence (in)directly. Higgs, if it exists, is ubiquitous in the universe already, saying that its presence is abhorrent to nature is like saying an electron is. Nature is quite comfortable with the presence of all of its particles, and doesn't give a rat's ass if we ever see any of them.
You forget that, because of time dilation, you cannot observe a particle passing through an event horizon. In essence, once the time has passed when the probe particle is supposed to have 'actually' gone through, they become effectively decoupled because there can be no paradox between the image of the probe (which never crosses) and the 'actual' probe (which cannot be accessed). One cannot even tell what the attributes of the probe are any more (particles may spontaneously transform as their spacial and time coordinates mix inside the horizon), much less if the state in question agrees with its mate.
Battlestargate Galactiverse. `Nuff said.
The video recruitment via video game is straight from The Last Starfighter. You have been recruited by the Star League to protect the frontier from Xur and the Kodan Armada...
and wasn't impressed by this "nano-threat 1.0". They work okay so far - on a verrry flat surface - but on shag carpet? Staircases, elevator thresholds, door jambs, etc? Not so much. I'll wait a few hundred more generations for the first "don't make me laugh" models.
was the last time I went out to the movies. I may not be able to stop this rapine bullshit, but I will not be subjected to it if I can reasonably help it.
This will just insure that it remains lurching forward, arms extended, and sniffing at potential sources of new brains for generations to come. Let them and Disney both die. But what do I know? I've been reading Heavy Metal for thirty years.
I see absolutely no chance of this going wrong. Perhaps they could send it out after all the kudzu... My god, men, think of what you're doing!!!
Well, duh. The unfinished areas in WoW don't have any rewards because they're not meant to be used. Hence 'unfinished'. They're just spots left over from map-building or early versions that no longer have a use.
