Re: Rooty-tooty point and shootys

I don't really think it's worth talking about silencers much further, but if you're curious, the last data I saw said that the average noise level of a gunshot is about 160db and that a suppressor reduces it to 130db People have already made plenty of points on the broader subject, but I wanted to ...

Re: Rooty-tooty point and shootys

There is literally a bill under consideration in Congress to remove existing limitations on purchasing silencers right now. It seems like a pretty good time to call attention to bullshit like that.

Re: A Magical Gathering

Re: Science!

Proof of concept, just because they weren't good enough to make a stronger version doesn't mean one can't be made. And 3) is unlikely, but they also mention the potential of companies making GMOs and the like unsequenceable, which does sound plausible.

Re: A Magical Gathering

Also they kept most of it in the books. Even Masques block wasn't that much about the Weatherlight Saga directly, it moved some pieces around to set up for Invasion. Weatherlight Saga felt longer than it was because it reached back and tied in all sorts of stuff that happened before Weatherlight, tr...

Taxation has always been one of those finicky things. No matter what your beliefs are, there is some governmental program that is against them, and your taxes are nominally helping to fund it, whether it be welfare or warfare.

Turns out "4chan" gave Wikileaks a bunch of hacked e-mails from Macron right before the election. How inconceivable.

Re: A Magical Gathering

Yeah, I went and looked and the Alpha Lotus and Summer Serendib are both still listed. So it seems more likely that someone made a credible offer. Watch this end up in Shkreli's collection or something.

Re: A Magical Gathering

It was ended by seller, and it said in the listing that "If I sell one of the other two other rare cards (alpha black lotus, summer serendib) I'm selling now, I will stop this sell." I imagine that one of those sold instead.
