There's a rant for you. First off, why does that work? Even if the huge machine legs of powerful power couldn't bust through that cable like a wet napkin (let's assume it's adamantium or something), it appears that the things stop with each step. It couldn't trip unless it still had forward momentum from the previous step, in addition to the fact that four-legged steel monstrosities of terror can't assume their next step, so wouldn't lean forward or anything.
Also, why in the name of Kickboxing Jesus would you make a walking vehicle for an arctic landscape? Coming in contact with the ground only ensures slippage, and we all already know that they have hovercraft technology. How did they get away with that for 30 years?
Oh shit. Star Wars is 30 years old. Dang.

Since the fall of the Republic, the Empire was only interested in weapons of terror, not war. Hence something like the Death Star (blow up habitable world with resources instead of just carpet-bombing the fuck out of them until they surrender? GREAT JERB!) and the Walkers. They aren't meant to win a war, they're meant to make you piss yourself in fear.

Which is coincidentally why they were defeated by a bunch of farm boys from backwater worlds. "Wait, the worst thing that'll happen is you blowing up the farm so I never have to do chores again and can just hang out in space with these various space hookers and space blow? And the best thing is I get to blow the shit out of stuff with people on it and not feel bad? Where the fuck do I sign up?!"

Why can't Amazon ship some items to my PO Box? If I click on the Learn More link, it says that it's because "some items are too big." That is an unsatisfactory explanation. What if an item is too big to fit into my mailbox? Also, it really doesn't make sense in this regard since I'm trying to order a Wii game and a Nintendo DS game from the same retailer (fulfilled by Amazon), and they have no problem shipping the Wii game to my mailbox but they won't ship the DS game. Wii games are larger!

Well wheels don't tend to do brilliantly in snow. Sleds however can be one of the most efficient methods of moving things, in fact in many northern areas it's easier to move things in winter than in summer. So yeah, definite srategy fail on the Empire's part.

Maybe the Empire just doesn't have much in the way of good options for equipment for attacking Hoth, and that's why the Rebels set up shop there.

The most probable reason I can think of for such a technologically advanced civilization to be going to war with obviously inappropriate hardware is large arms firms lobbying, and a desire to use nationally made equipment rather than buying better items from other nation states (either in the name of security, or due to an often misguided belief it will work out cheaper).

"You're... refitting the AT-ATs? But my lord, they're horribly antiquated! They were never designed for snow! It'll cost a fortune! Surely we could buy some skimmers from Lan-"
"The procurement will maintain an impressive number of jobs within the Empire's arms industry, and continue as planned.You don't know the power of our Just-In-Time production strategy."

Word filters, how do they work?

Postby KittenKaboodle » Wed Mar 30, 2011 7:38 am UTC

I've got a rant: The paucity of ballsweat paid to people who create word filters, surely any one who can come up with half two deserves enough ballsweat to drown in.
Actualy I'm not so sure that this wicked insightful observation rates as a rant, but I figure I'd be pushing my luck putting it in SB.

I did find this in one of the rules fine twisted cords;
"Sometimes they do it just because it's juvenile and perplexing . Note that every rule in the mod's "code of conduct" has "unless it's juvenile and perplexing " appended to it."
I suppose that does allow the creation of a "bad word filter, not funny"

The ratio of a circles diameter to its circumference is approximately one : three point one four one five nine.
the square root of four equals two
two plus two equals four (for suficently small values of two)

At the time this post was made it, April first was still nearly two days away at my location, so even allowing for time zones and date line I'm pretty sure it is not April fools day anywhere yet.
From Wikipedia: "Traditionally, in some countries such as New Zealand, the UK, Australia, and South Africa, the jokes only last until noon, and someone who plays a trick after noon is called an "April Fool"." they don't say anything what one who jumps the the gun might be called, but I'd guess it wouldn't be flattering.

I really dislike how Windows seems to have a random timer between the "7% battery remaining, please plug it in ASAP or your computer will go into hibernation mode" warning and the actual shutdown... my battery doesn't last for more than 90 minutes, so it's not rare that I get less than 30 seconds to get plugged in. And then sometimes it's just ludicrous and flashes the warning message right as the computer is shutting down for hibernation :roll:

I think, though, the explanation may be that they don't learn about the rebels' whereabouts in the comfort of their home or even a halfway decent fleet base, heck, not even the conceptually strange space station, but instead while aimlessly skimming around the universe in their fleet. Maybe they really didn't see that snow thing coming. Oh, yes, they should have thought about the chance of that... yea, well, we are talking about people who build a perfectly straight, unprotected ventilation shaft that has not even a grill to the most vulnerable part of their giant space station on behalf of their believe that the chance of that getting hit is small.

Or, more likely, Lucas never thought that through that much.

Embuggerance.

I'm trying to pull timestamp data into MatLab, and for some reason it has been encoded as hex. This is fine mostly because I can convert. What isn't fine is when those hex values assume a number such as 00044E06. Because MatLab insists on interpreting that as the decimal number 44000000.

Fuck it, I'm going home. Future-me can worry about it. He's a git anyway.

You're a supply teacher. You should probably tell our real lecturer that we didn't watch the film we were supposed to watch in class because you couldn't work the projector and not tell us instead to 'look it up on IMDB'. We do have to write a report on this you know.
Thankfully, I've written the report based on various reviews of the film and internet researching (wiki) and it's actually ok. I just think it's really really bad teaching practise.
