Re: Rant Thread (to balance Awesome Thread)

I was so pissed when I found out that Bohr's model of the atom wasn't correct and no one had told me. I was in eighth grade and flipping through next year's textbook when I happened upon this thing about atoms. WHAT THE HELL. I HAVE BEEN TAUGHT ABOUT ATOMS SINCE FOREVER AND NOT ONCE HAS ANYONE MENT...

Re: WoWzers!

And thus less resources and development time are being spent on content that will quickly become outdated. I look forward to the MMO that does away with leveling. It's really an archaic design. I don't know that I entirely agree. Certainly I understand how someone could dislike leveling as a concep...

Re: WoWzers!

Fwiw, I found it really, really easy to level my priest as shadow from level 1-60 back in classic.

Re: The worst film you've seen

I'm still bitter that I paid to see Wing Commander in the theaters. Admittedly, I think a good bit of why that movie pisses me off quite as much as it does is because the games were reasonably decent popcorn-muncher type movies. The movie, however, is solidly in the "it's so bad, it's bad"...

Re: Top Ten Favorite Games

1. Civilization 2: Civ 4 is the better game, Civ 2 was the greater game. As much as I enjoyed the first Civilization game, 2 was simply better in every way. And it had heart. You have to admit that of the Civ games, 2s advisors were by far the best in their cheesy, old-school glory. 2. Final Fantasy...

Re: WoWzers!

Thanks for the warlock advice! Some of the stuff I had actually figured out for myself before I checked replies here (a lot has changed since the last time I played her, so I'm combatting my own preconceived notions). I looked at the sbolt and incinerate tooltips and figured out that they have the ...

Re: The New X-Com/UFO Game.... it's a FPS. Fuck.

It's like.. I don't know, putting out a tactical isometric wargame where you control an army of 20-40 units (that are composed of 1-500 individuals, depending on the unit) in a Modern Fantasy setting (modern clothing, speech, technology level, but swords, magic and dragons) and calling it The Legen...

Re: WoWzers!

Some advice I'd like: in instances, I've been throwing up curse of elephants, immolate, incinerate spam for single targets, and for aoe pulls I tab elephants onto all targets, then rain of fire until dead. Is this the right thing to do? Do demo locks ever use metamorphosis in instances? (I will lik...

Re: Atheist = Second-Class Citizen

Except that no one should have to take any of that up with SCOTUS in the first place. Imagine if a law or state constitutional said No Negro shall hold any office in the civil department of this state. Would you just wave that away as well by saying it would be invalidated if it were challenged at ...

Re: "Exoplanets" Discussion (#786)

(Alpha Centauri A and B are too close together for planets in the habitable zone to have stable orbits over a multibillion-year time span, and Proxima Centauri is believed to have no Earth-mass or larger planets). Could I trouble you for a cite on the first point? This is far outside my field, so I...

Re: Mnemonics you love

In my high school chemistry class, our teacher split us into groups one day and had us make up mnemonics for the groups of the periodic table. The best one, by far, was one one of the groups (sadly, not mine) came up with for VIIA. Taking hydrogen to be an honorary VIIA member: Hot Food, Cold Beer, ...

Re: "Desecration" discussion (#782)

At first when I read this comic, I thought it was a continuation of a series. Then I realized that I was remember the Aug 17 Pearls Before Swine, maybe adding in a bit of Pore Strips, and was a bit sad.

Re: Facepalm TV / Doing It Wrong

Stargate has two of my [least] favorite bits of Hollywood science: 1) The whole "humans only use 10% of their brains" drivel. This wouldn't bother me quite so much if I had any faith in the writes to actually realize that it was drivel. People who think that it's actually true are scarily ...

Re: "Children's Fantasy" Discussion

I've just recently re-watched Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere, and this is exactly how it went, though he did get to go back to London Below after having the epiphany that the real world sucks. How much of a downer it would have been to cut off a minute early before that happened! I like to think that the...
