Best 1990s Sci-fi show?

soccerisgod Re:TNG == Social workers in space (476 comments)

I actually like both shows and I think that's utter bullshit. Both had space stations, but the similarities end there.

Best 1990s Sci-fi show?

soccerisgod Re:Lexx (476 comments)

Lexx rocked. It was sick, twisted and totally weird (and often slimey!) but it rocked. The characters were just divine. Especially Stanley H. Tweedle! Plus the actor (Brian Downey) is a really cool guy.

Best 1990s Sci-fi show?

soccerisgod Re:X-Files vs. Bab-5 - ouch! (476 comments)

It's true, too. The first four seasons of B5 had onefiller episode that contributed nothing to the plot. One. End of season 1 I believe, the one with the sick alien kid whose parents didn't want it to be treated. That's the only one I always skip when rewatching B5 for the umpteenth time :)

Your Entire PC In a Mouse

soccerisgod Re:Now if I could just type... (165 comments)

I guess instead of that, you could plug a tiny bluetooth module into the mouse and connect a wireless keyboard with that...

Pope Francis: There Are Limits To Freedom of Expression

soccerisgod Re:Get in your 2 minutes of hate now! (894 comments)

This is so stupid I don't even know where to start criticizing you...

The strawman? The overgeneralization? The lies? The tired stereotypes?

Russia Says Drivers Must Not Have "Sex Disorders" To Get License

soccerisgod Re:They (well some of them) are mental disorders (412 comments)

It's only a disorder if it has a major negative impact on a person or society.

Well they have a high risk of becoming a murderer (about half of serial killers are homosexuals, which is an overrepresentation of about 1000-2500%) of becoming murdered (by aforementioned killers), of suicide and of sexually transferrable diseases.

[citation needed]

And please, something respectable. Don't waste your time by linking to the 'Family Research Institute' or 'Conservapedia'.

Russia Says Drivers Must Not Have "Sex Disorders" To Get License

soccerisgod Re:Transgender Persons (412 comments)

Sure. Next up: a 'cure' for being gay. Or lesbian. Or a conservative. Or a liberal.

Should We Be Content With Our Paltry Space Program?

soccerisgod Re:Scare them with China, make it a contest again (287 comments)

And to what end? What was that line from the Stargate SG1 tv series? Oh, yes:

They said the something about the Apollo program, they brought back moon rocks. You may have noticed we haven't been to the moon in 25 years.

To the best of my knowledge, there's nothing of value on the moon. Instead, it's full of razor sharp rocks and razor sharp dust. Why would anyone want to live there? Just to wave that flag you planted around every day?

New Year's Resolution for 2015

soccerisgod Re:Choose the right diet (214 comments)

I looked at that website and to me, it looked like a fundraising efford. Give that research grant to us, because we know better how to do proper research. Nothing more, nothing less.

What Would Have Happened If Philae Were Nuclear Powered?

soccerisgod Re:I'm quite surprised it wasn't (523 comments)

Perhaps, but, statistically, a failing rocket will not fall on your head, but nearby. Then you care if your land is only burned and poisoned or irradiated, burned and poisoned

FTFY. Rocket fuel (hydazine) is highly toxic. If a rocket goes down near your home, you WILL be in trouble no matter what.

Philae Lands Successfully On Comet

soccerisgod Re:Congratulations! (188 comments)

The mission in it's entirety, including the planning stage, took around 25 years. Or so they said during the post-landing press conference.

Help ESR Stamp Out CVS and SVN In Our Lifetime

soccerisgod Re:About CVS Only! Not SVN! (245 comments)

Heh. It IS a feature in the use case for which it was designed. Making it work the way you'd want it to would break the original use case.

soccerisgod (585710) writes "After previously forcing ReplacementDocs to take down manuals for their games (some of which can be downloaded free of charge from their own website) games maker Bethesda Softworks is now threatening legal action against Glutton Creeper Games who are currently working on a Fallout-based pen & paper RPG. Glutton Creeper Games claims to have a valid contract with Interplay, while Bethesda Softworks claims that "Interplay never had the rights to license a Pen and Paper to GCG under their license of Fallout from 2004 before the purchase of the IP, and makes claims against GCG that it may damage the Fallout brand and forecoming Fallout 3 release by linking the two."

Is our friendly neighbourhood games company turning into the next EA?"
