The 50megaton Tsar Bomba:
"All buildings in the village of Severny (both wooden and brick), located 55 kilometres (34 mi) from ground zero within the Sukhoy Nos test range, were destroyed. In districts hundreds of kilometers from ground zero wooden houses were destroyed, stone ones lost their roofs, windows and doors, and radio communications were interrupted for almost one hour. One participant in the test saw a bright flash through dark goggles and felt the effects of a thermal pulse even at a distance of 270 kilometres (170 mi). The heat from the explosion could have caused third-degree burns 100 km (62 mi) away from ground zero. A shock wave was observed in the air at Dikson settlement 700 kilometres (430 mi) away; windowpanes were partially broken to distances of 900 kilometres (560 mi)."
TX is 660 mi wide, 800 mi long. A bomb with a burst-damage radius of 100 mi wouldn't "destroy" Texas - although it would certainly mess some shit up.
Actually, I think PS Vue has Velocity. I watched a recording of Monday's Fast 'n Loud episode last night and was asked if I wanted to watch it on Discovery or Velocity. I haven't checked their channel line-up lately, but I figure it has to have it if it's mentioning it.
Thanks, I'll take a look....
It might be on their next level up, I have the middle level tier for $35/mo...will see if it has been added to mine, or if it is on the next tier up....

Uh, what? That has to be a typo.
I have a 2013 with 95k miles on it. I still owe about $9,000. The deal will pay me about $18,000, so I'll walk away with $9,000 in cash after paying off the loan.
I'm headed over to my dealer this weekend to see what kind of incentive he'll give me on top of that for sticking with VW. Considering new Jettas start around $15,000, I could end up with a new car (2017 model year) for almost nothing.
Thanks for the heads-up about VUE, but it looks like it's more expensive than DishTV (with a DVR) and has fewer channels.
The VUE package I get, the middle one..has over 70 channels for $35/mo. and it covers what I watch regularly and would miss after cutting the cable cord.
Your mileage may vary.
But it does have DVR...on VUE.
What's the DishTV (I'm guessing you mean regular put up a satellite dish for this ) offering cost you're looking at? Isn't that with a 2 year contract and usually goes up in price after contract is up? Do you get hardware with that for all your rooms? They usually charge fees per outlet, etc.
I've played with satellite, UVerse and cable...I like the combo system I"ve got now with Tivo to capture my local HD OTA channels and the Amazon FireTV unit to stream VUE (cable channels), Netflix and Amazon Prime.
But everyone needs to see what fits their needs.
My total cost for TV now is $35....I don't count the Netflix as that I had that before, and my internet is my business expense, I'd have that no matter what and it isn't tied to any media or phone....its a business ISP connection....so, I went from $113/mo with ATT Uverse U200 package to $35/mo.
The article was talking about this new DirectTV Now service that sounds similar to VUE. I'll see what it looks like....because since I don't have a contract with VUE I can quit at any time for another offering that seems better value.
And I don't have to deal with satellite dishes....right now my OTA antenna is indoors, but I may put up an external one eventually to get one channel a little better.
Thought that was bootlegging
Only if you take it east of Texarkana, TX.
I never did understand that one back in the day....of course now you can get Coors most anywhere, but it was a fact that you couldn't get it further than TX.
Hell, what about the cap on my U-Verse data service? It's the only hard line available, in city limits, yet it's too slow to even support U-Verse TV.
Well, maybe look into a Business ISP? I think Uverse offers it.
I dunno where you live....but in the New Orleans area I've had the basic Cox Cable Business Internet set up, good speeds for $69/mo, even has a low level SLA and really good reliability.
No caps, I can run servers all I want, etc......look for this option in your area.
* And the streaming services (apart from Netflix and Amazon) that I've tried have very intrusive, irritating ads, that are frequently broken, so that if you skip to see a part of the show you wanted to recheck, you have to watch minutes of ads. Without DVR features, channel streaming is tedious.
You might look into the Playstation VUE option, that's what I use for my "cable channels" since I cut the cord.
It has DVR capability. Things you add as Favorites you can skip through commercials. If it is an "OnDemand" listing, something maybe you didn't record, or something 1-2 days new, it might be OnDemand, but I find the VAST majority of things I watch on VUE I can readily skip through.
I've just this past weekend breezed through 2 seasons of Fear the Walking Dead.....and skipped commercials. On the last two episodes, VUE gave me the option of OnDemand or DVR and with the DVR I could skip commercials.
