Bullshit! All energy except radioactive is solar. Even the core heat of the earth is related to the suns effects on the earth over is total life.
So is nuclear. Well stellar technically, not our sun exactly. But still from a star.
That, and who wants a semi truck? I'll wait for a full truck.
Yea but those cost more, especially when they start to get older and you have to buy those blue fuel additive tablets.
It's one of those terms that people who like to pretend they're well educated use.
Unfortunately they conflate it with "devastate" (to lay waste or make desolate; ravage; destroy. to confound or overwhelm).
The misuse has persisted so long that it's distressingly common nowadays among the Inteligencia-wannabes. A side-effect of morons who have been indoctrinated by morons indoctrinating yet another generation of morons.
Or, you know, every dictionary and scholar on the subject. But if you are pissing and moaning about it not being used properly, then you should go look in the mirror. The original English use was for a 10% tithe, or taking a 10th. It was over 100 years (1528 to 1676) between the first known written use to refer to tithing before anyone used it to mean to "kill one in every 10". Now I'm sure you'll come back with "blah blah Romans blah blah" but they didn't speak English, they spoke Latin. And if you want to go there, well then there are a LOT of words you and everyone else are using wrong.
So, which of annihilate/destroy/demolish should represent every one in ten now? There is a reason why decimate means what it means...
It means to give a tithe of 10%. At least that is the original english language usage (Glossographia, 1656, with examples in print going back to at least 1528). So why are you talking about breaking stuff?
All this hate on the Classic mini NES, I just don't understand. My wife was able to go to the local Target and get one for me for Christmas. It's pretty awesome, it just works, has good games, has HDMI. Great execution by Nintendo.
The hate isn't for the device. I have one (got stupid lucky and saw it on SlickDeals back in stock at Amazon one day, sold out in under 20 minutes) it's for how it was handled. It's been perpetually sold out since launch and now it's discontinued despite the obvious demand for more from consumers. OK so Nintendo underestimated the appeal of it when they launched, I can buy that. But now it's still selling out as fast as they can make them and they go "Ah, nope, no more". About the only way to get one was to luck out and be at the right place at the right time, or scalpers on ebay, which now that it's discontinued are closing successful auctions at $250-$350.
Body armor that may as well have been regular clothing for all the good it did? This was a frustrating movie.
Star Wars must really frustrate the shit out of you then!
Look at it another way: why spend $60 and be able to play 30 games from one console when, for $80, you can "build" it yourself and choose from hundreds of games from a dozen different consoles? (And snapping together a board in a plastic case and installing RetroPie is really stretching the definition of "build".)
For 99% of people out there pre built will do just fine.
That would be the 99% who were willing to pay the 800% markup on eBay because Nintendo didn't make many of the too-few units they produced available to the general public.
Technically you can load other ROMS onto the NES Classic via the USB port. Not an official feature of course, but someone figured out how to do it and published some software to make it easy.
Anything cut to length will be too short.
