    a couple of friends of mine have been playing Battletech exclusively lately. They are loving it... I'll prolly try it out next time it goes on a significant sale. however, another group of friends is getting into Guns of Icarus. I know almost nothing about it. Anyone play that with an opinion?

    everyone dies in the end and it was the butler that did it, in the library, with the candlestick. TOTAL SPOILER BELOW!!!!!!!!!!! DO NOT UNHIDE ULESS YOU HAVE SEEN OR WILL NEVER SEE THE MOVIE!!!!! (or don't care). No really... just about everyone dies. Exactly half of all life in the...

    Is scientific research hitting a wall?

    If that were true, then explain the demonstrated effectiveness of Trans-cranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) in Patients that did not respond well to antidepressant medication. It is a non-invasive, non-chemical, FDA-passed, covered by insurance, and there is a growing database of over 6,000...

    RussiaGate

    Stand by for the fallacy where he uses two different definitions of the same word in the same sentence to support a position ("just a theory", as an example of that fallacy). Did he use a knife or a gun to attack you? neither? Therefore no attack... Legal definition of assault is... blah blah...

    How to teach mathematics

    Well that certainly is a far broader question... how do we learn (at all)? As you pointed out, learning is pretty fundamental, as even monkeys can do it... what they lack that we have, though, is language... the ability to archive knowledge to more efficiently pass it on to the next generation...

    Barbara Bush: "I don't understand how women can vote" for Trump.

    But if one were to wonder what the content of her prenuptial agreement with Donny may say about infidelity, the "gold digger" course of action might be to file, take her cut, and then move on to the next one.

    What video game are you playing?

    They are sort of like plot devices, insofar as they fill a realism gap. I don't like those devices either. There is a commercial fishing game I have been eyeing on Steam, but it seems filled with "mini games" like that. Sometimes there needs to be a way to put something that is not entirely...

    Doubt it... I think he just left off the /sarcasm tag.

    For clarity, general Trespass can only occur if you violate a legally issued trespass warning. A Legally issued trespass warning can only be given by a police officer, and in written form is the most acceptable... verbal is weak, but technically counts. A civilian (property / business owner -...

    Ben Carson wants to raise rents on those poor enough to obtain subsidized federal housing

    The relevance is that to make the argument that it is time to raise the cost of housing because it hasn't increased in a while, creates the argument that it is time to increase the minimum wage because it hasn't increased in a while. That 9% figure (alleged cost of living increase since last...

    After decades, serial killer caught

    In my town, we pay extra taxes for certain services that other neighborhood's do not have... for example, our garbage pickup is house-side, not curb-side.... which is to say, it would be illegal to pick through my trash, as it remains on my property up until the garbage crew walks up my...

    Does Donald Trump disprove several conspiracy theories?

    If you can ever think of an instance when a smoke grenade is a viable tactic, then you can think of a time when a Trump presidency is desired by someone, somewhere. If I needed to change my position on the battlefield, I would need someone to either lay down suppressive fire, or throw a smoke...

    RussiaGate

    It wasn't a conspiracy.. it was her in the state department calling for senate to levy sanctions on Russia, that were levied, which the Russians obviously were unhappy at her about. Motive for revenge against her personally. If Trump was outspoken about sanctioning Russia for this activity or...

    Food reaction videos

    For some reason I cannot see those videos... It just looks to me like you posted a picture of a large black square... not even a link (if you want to provide the direct link to them, I'll prolly enjoy them). Lately, the reaction videos that I have been watching have been related to Enchroma...

    The myth of an ending: why even removing Trump from office won’t save American democracy

    As a bank robber empties the safe deposit boxes, global warming remains unaffected. As a rapist tortures a person to death, the stock market remains positive. As a terrorist murders dozens of people, millions of children are still receiving an education. so.. everything is just fine.

    Van Attack in Toronto

    Prostitution is illegal*, but their strippers are allowed to go bottomless. It is world-famous... their clubs are jokingly (and popularly) called "the Canadian Ballet". * in 2012 a bill was passed that made it illegal to purchase sex, but not illegal to sell sex. The idea was to move the...

    "We don't need to investigate our president. We need to arrest Hillary."

    The OP quote (understood to have been a good example of the Tu Quoque, or "the Standard Trump Defense") assumes that only one thing can happen at a time. When it rains, only one raindrop falls, hits the ground, and only then does the next raindrop begin to fall. When a person is arrested, the...
