This...

This is the epitome of Bad Ideas™.  The ultimate in the Darwin Awards because you're not just trying to remove yourself from the genepool, but the whole goddamned species as well!!!




Someone tell me this shit isn't happening.  Someone tell me that our own fucking administration isn't showing the goddamned Saudis how to make nukes!!!  (Because that's what "sensitive US nuclear technology" is!)

No scripts. No ads. No tracking. No colour.

CERN has recreated the world's first web browser as a browser app.

  Can Trump take credit for the Green New Deal?
Posted by: robkelk - 02-19-2019, 09:02 AM - Forum: Politics and Other Fun - No Replies

I thought for a while about posting this one, because the article itself isn't up to my usual standards of objectivity. However, the base premise appears sound.

CBC Analysis: Why Trump can take credit for his opponents' Green New Deal

tl;dr: By abandoning this issue (and apparently denying that it exists), Trump "has handed the Democrats carte blanche on the issue". (The article makes its point, then goes on to talk as if the Democrats being elected in 2020 is a done deal.)

French fencing body recognizes lightsaber dueling as a sport.

Yes.  The Federation approves of Light Sabers.

  Short passwords are vulnerable - and by short, we mean 8-characters
Posted by: robkelk - 02-16-2019, 10:31 AM - Forum: General Chatter - Replies (2)

The Register: Use an 8-char Windows NTLM password? Don't. Every single one can be cracked in under 2.5hrs

Or under 15 seconds if you have applicable rainbow tables and a GPU. (And who doesn't have a GPU nowadays?)


IMHO, this xkcd strip has a good idea but doesn't implement it correctly. (For one thing, Mr. Munroe implies his password is 25 elements {letters} long when it's actually 4 elements {common dictionary words} long.)

  Not Evil (Lego Movie 2 Song): A song for infiltrations?
Posted by: Jorlem - 02-15-2019, 04:21 PM - Forum: The Game Everyone Loves To Play - No Replies




I figure this could be used if Doug needed to infiltrate some evil group, to help him get in without actually needing to perform evil deeds to prove himself. Basically, I think it would make him give off the vibe of an incredible evildoer who is pretending to be good.  Also, it might genderflip him.

  Emergency Declaration

Trump is planning on joining the ranks of countless other autocrats in declaring a false emergency to assume special powers: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-47247726

I don’t trust or believe any GOP politician saying that they will oppose this. Their actions these past years have clearly shown where their interests lie.

I got back into writing again. Bob has chapters eight and nine of Dead Bang. I'm taking a day or two off before diving into Chapter ten, but I've already started blocking out the key elements.

  [OOC] Villains and Destroyers

From the "Montreal residence" thread, where Rob appears to be trying to divide the Metacontinuity by zero.

I think it's time to address what the primary villains in our story should look like.  We have strong creators in our story, like Washuu and the Choushin.  We have strong preservers in the story, like Belldandy and the Norns.  So we need a set of strong destroyers in the story, and we should be talking about who they should be.

We can have smaller scale villains, that's fine.  The biggest canon villain in the first three stories I chose is Kimura-sensei, who spends a little too much time ogling high school girls, but also keeps the city clean fueled only by Love Wife Lunches.  Eriol is an antagonist, but his challenges are to help the protagonist grow up with all of her friends.

Our main antagonists should be destroyers, people who aren't just out for themselves, but people who actually want to destroy the world or universe.  People who could be plausible enemies to the gods.  Salem is actually a good starting choice, now that we know her aim is to prove her gods wrong and to replace them.  The Sailor Moon enemies make good choices too, like Metalia and Pharaoh 90 and especially Chaos.  It's not just evil people, since we're working with Hild and Ciel, but those who are trying to destroy the cosmic order entirely.  And from there, we can move on to who they will use to achieve their goals.

And from that perspective, Kyubey and Mr. Morden just aren't evil enough to be major antagonists.
