Re: TV Series On The Television

while the biggest platforms (Facebook, Twitter) are so big that good moderation is impossible. ( Better moderation is possible, but I don't think good moderation is.)

Re: Obscure Old Games

Mohawk & Headphone Jack, a platformer for the SNES that was so complex that the developer had to invent a new compression algorithm to make it fit on a SNES cart and function smoothly.

Re: CHAT DUMP (and Quotes)

They make a lot of sense in electric cars, yeah, given the output profile of electric motors. Funny enough, this reminds me of a recent high-powered electric sports motorbike which was sold with a six-speed manual "transmission" (the effect was emulated) even though it was completely and ...

I mean, I take it back, if it turns out you can't launch nukes at all unless everyone on the server (individual server pops will be relatively small to preserve the "sparse" feeling of Fallout) agrees to turn on PVP, or they make it even simpler and there will be both PVP and non-PVP serv...

If anyone's interested, I have a link to where someone went through the shows and cut out the first playing of each original and each cover, in case anyone wants an approximation of probably the longest single-tour live show album ever made.

Justin Trudeau trolls Trump with framed photo of his grandfather's Canadian brothel
