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.

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

  Also rather... infamous for some things.  Oh, John Ringo, no...
I read that book.  It isn't badly done, but um, it is some serious porn.  IIRC Mr. Ringo replied on the LJ thread basically saying it was a writing wank that his publisher wanted.  (In his publisher's defense I think it sold pretty well.)  I vastly preferred his Council Wars.  The Legacy of the Aldentata got a bit odd.

Has anyone else heard of Brad R. Torgersen?  He wrote a collection of good short stories, lots of "after the end stuff."

The usual ways:  Running locals out of your embassy, honey pots, ELINT, "thousand grains of sand" if there is significant movement of people.

Hooray for copy + paste, as I just answered this on the book of faces:

Larry Correia, between Monster Hunter International and the Grimnoir Chronicles, he's demonstrated the chops to do everything needed for some good world-wide zombie, with a USA focus, madness.

my games all seem to be there. i did not notice the logo change.
It took me a few hours to notice the change.  My games have all been fine, as far as I know.

...I'm just weird.
Also true, but in a good way.   Tongue  Grin

(click to show/hide)

This seems to me to be a direct result of the militarisation of America's police forces by the DHS in the wake of 9/11.
Nothing good comes of cops playing soldier at work.  And no, your department doesn't need armored vehicles.  DoD needs to stop giving out used MRAPs and DHS needs to die in a fire.
