Oh, finally got X-Com: Enemy Within.
So, word. Let's get some subterfuge on. Cool

So when you're hoarding water wings because Denver is beachfront property that's cool because at least you had a microwave right 'til the end?
A)  It is weird to have a microwave again, and I wouldn't miss it if it was gone, but I'll put my computer in its place and say "YES."
B)  Thinking of the first places to go; LA, NYC, Florida, kinda makes me support global warming.   Tongue

Followed shortly by Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Utah, Nevada, Texas, the entirety of the great plains states, -don't get me wrong, finding out the The Creationist Museum was metaphorically drowned in it's own credulity would be terrifically funny, but everyone loses somehow.

Oh, and Israel would wash right off the map. All those super-intense prophecies about the end of the world focused around Jerusalem? Blub blub blub; the Savior's gonna need swim fins. I've heard Big J walked on water, but if he's really coming astride a donkey that could be complicated.

I'm not much of an Escatologist though, I <3 solutions that don't involve the destruction of whole populations.

Echo this, though keeping the facts in perspective we charming First Worlders' do use a hell of a lot more resources and generate a far larger carbon footprint per capita. Tain't fair to plop the blame solely on numbers when concentration's a factor.
You can go live a yurt and burn yak dung to keep warm, but I'm going to stick with electricity and a gas furnace.

[Insert rant about atomic power here.]  Speaking of, has anyone else heard about "molten salt" reactors being a handy way to use/dispose of old uranium rods?

Disposal? No, hadn't heard that. But for being clean and stable? Yeah. Got hopes that way.

So the death of Joan Rivers isn't exactly Crafty material, but nyah nyah it's mine. Tongue

Edit: I forgot Dot Matrix!
Fie!

Y'know, adding this to the news that our solar power plants set the entire avian kingdom literally on fire, and I'm starting to think that humanity can't seem to win the whole environment issue.  Tongue

At 7 Billion people, you are probably correct.

Huh. I am prompted to query thou thusly:
Were there ever actual historical Australian pirates or privateers?

Civilisation: Beyond Earth gets an 80% Steam price hike

Looks like 2K are borrowing from Games Workshop's playbook when it comes to dealing with NZ and Australia.

That ain't right. Undecided

I was thinking about doing Plebian with the quote, "screw you buddy, I work for a living!"

World of Warcraft is supposedly completely free for this month.  Don't know if that includes expansions.

Hmm..
Nope, not here.

Hey.
How goes it out there, Morg?

I think the mole idea's not bad at all, actually.
I was doing a bit of research and useful for underground survival is how a mole has a blood protein especially efficient at bonding with oxygen and thus at getting a lot more use out of a lot less breathable air. So maybe something like Mastery of the Body's benefit.
Swimming counts; underground areas are natural sumps for rain and can very much flood from sudden contact with the local water table.

Climbing's a bit problematic because of drake mass. In my estimation it's much easier for something heavy just to burrow up to a high place then to scale (no pun intended) up because of a greatly reduced chance of having it's terrain tear loose from beneath it. Things that really climb rock well are, as best that I know, also very light.

A grappling bonus might be in order. We're talking about a frickin' mighty collection of muscle, potentially thorny hide, and powerful grasping claws. I am picturing something sort of worm-like more then lizardly, more tube-like in nature then traditionally quadrupedal and if that fits then all those attributes combined with being very flexible could make for a nightmarishly deadly grab-and-devour predator. Maybe Swallow Whole as an advanced racial possibility later.
Maybe I'm thinking more of a kind of racial variant or as a Paragon Critter option.

The hinterlands of Afghanistan maybe?
Local stringers and ELINT.  Sorry.

Nah, good to know. Information -> Power. I'd rather expose my ignorance and be thought a fool then keep my mouth shut and actually be one. (with apologies to Confucious.)

So you'd need total barriers.
No shared languages, no cultural connections, zero tolerance for outsiders, and uh... semaphore?
And, most difficulty imo, a seamless control of physical access.
All that's possible, if not entirely plausible, on something like a space station for example.

So, you can get Link in Mario Kart 8 in a new DLC.  Bound to happen sooner or later, really.
Super Smash Brothers Racing?

PG-13 Twisted Metal?

So let's dress it up a little.
Does anyone know of an instance when all those approaches didn't work?
The hinterlands of Afghanistan maybe?

I dunno.. do you think a mole's claws would be very good at climbing?  Huh?

I know the mole family are generally excellent swimmers, in case anyone's thinking of solving that kind of problem with water.
