On Transitioning To an Asian-Style MMO, Such As Aion

Oktober Sunset Re:Aion will Flop (256 comments)

Rewind 10 years, people were saying the same thing as that about EverQuest. Noting lasts forever, one day WOW will be too outdated and they will have to bring out WOW2, and then there will be a chance for some pretender to step in and snatch the crown, just as WOW did when Everquest finally went stale and EQ2 failed to step up to the plate.

Space Station Crew Drinks Recycled Urine

Oktober Sunset Re:Nonsense. (349 comments)

Actually, in most developed countries, the sewage outfall water is cleaner than the river it's going into.

Of course, the US is usually the exception when the phrase 'in most developed countries' is used...

Texas Makes Zombie Fire Ants

Oktober Sunset Re:What stupidity. (398 comments)

We do have word that refers to all animals except humans: beasts.

However just like when they say animals, people usually use it to just refer to 4-legged animals, I've never heard anyone refer to a pigeon or a goldfish as a beast, even though they could.

Hints of a Link Between Autism and Vinyl Flooring

Oktober Sunset Re:Correlation not blah blah blah (356 comments)

How is this pre-empting them? All you have done is predict that people will say it, that isn't a counter argument, 'correlation is not causation' may be over-used and formulaic, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's wrong.

German Police Union Chief Wants Violent Game Ban After Shooting

Oktober Sunset german censorship = fail (518 comments)

What European nation is that already has the most strict rules on censoring violent games? Where the blood has to be green or the enemies have to really be robots and in command and conquer the suicide bombers were all changed to a cartoon bomb on a tea trolley? Now remembering that answer, what European nation has been in the news most for school shootings?

Oh dear! can someone say logic fail!

Isn't the common factor between all these school shootings actually that the kids parents had multiple guns in their house that the kids could get hold of easier than the cookie jar?
