Most folks are considered guilty by the administration.  (But you would think that Campus Safety, whom we called Camping Safely, would learn my girlfriend's name instead of saying "Hay Stew's girlfriend, do you know where Stew is?")

But administrators pile the crap deep enough I almost feel like if you aren't guilty of something you are being excessively lazy.

Not Volbeat's best work, but Heaven Nor Hell has been sticking in my brain for the last few days.

Also, Rifts is the Liefeld of RPGs. Kernal of a good idea in there, but surrounded by useless and poorly thought out garbage.
Fairly gruesome power creep in each new book too.

Typical. I finally learn to drive and now self-driving cars are becoming a thing. Gah.
I would like to be the first, and probably the last, to thank you for the sacrifice of your time.   Grin

This seems like some good stuff.  Self driving cars will be a boon as well.

Sounds about right.  Nor do I consider "stability" to be much of a virtue, and dropping bombs on dictators facing rebellions seems like a good use of precision firepower.  (For a given value of precision, I'm good with hitting a "presidential" residence with a laser guided 2000 pound bomb or seven.)

But I'm also not against dropping some rocks on Mecca and Medina, from orbit.

Nice to see these folks doing some good, even if their proposed "solutions," to real problems, were terrible.

(Burger Horton's, anyone? LOL)
What about Tim King?  (Just to give away nothing about what they sell.)

Unrelated:  To the Eighth Circle with Keynesian economists, no country or continent should be the next Japan.

There is always the nearest backstop wall...

Which I wish i was even half joking about at this point. There aren't enough people left at the top of the economic heap with enough sense to do another New Deal or anything like it.
The "New New Deal" we tried after the housing bubble burst worked as well as Hoover's interventions after the '29 crash and FDR's New Deal:  Made the bad times last longer.

Huge swaths of the US federal government just need to go away.  72,000+ pages of federal tax code is nothing but corruption.  I've got a long list and plenty of it is debatable, but I think cutting the billions wasted complying with tax laws no one can comprehend is a reasonable start.

Oh, finally got X-Com: Enemy Within.
So, word. Let's get some subterfuge on. Cool
Best news I've heard all day.

So, does Jesus' walking on water ability transfer at all?  I'm sure he can wear all the armor he wants and still walk on the waves, but could he pilot a mech on the water?  Where does powered armor fit on the "flexible Kevlar to 100 ton assault 'mech" scale?

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

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?

The NZ/Australia price hike makes sense for physical goods, but not for digital goods.

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?
Not until we can drive Bowser's clown face propeller thing.

Oh, and don't forget the free Mercedes DLC.  They're decent vehicles, not overpowered.

Even that isn't a guarantee, we're still learning things about Mesopotamians who have been dead for 4,000+ years.
