Re: Trump presidency

Plus, its Finland. The Finns have +25 resistance to all elements and +2 constitution. To them, forest fires are just natural occurring saunas. The only thing that can harm them is alcohol poisoning and lake trolls.

Re: Trump presidency

IT is the most mobile industry there is. Companies like Uber dont need anything beyond office space and computers to program on.

Is Beastmaster a bad movie? I liked it as a kid.

Re: Trump presidency

Even if tomorrow we, all of humanity, were to not use a single drop more of oil or nugget of coal, climate change would still continue to get worse for a bit longer due to the time scales involved. So then, should we continue to settle California? Maybe we should consider moving industries such as H...

Just a thought, maybe California should build denser instead of up? Easier to protect 100 sq miles of city than 500 sq miles of suburbs. It's not like California is known for earthqua... oh, right.
