  1. I don't know what you're talking about. He thinks he was recruited by the CIA, the world was taken over by tripods, that Kleiner is a mad scientist who he adores, and that he's supposed to be in Hawaii. Plus considering he's taking the time to edit the maps so they don't have too much game logic, I think Ross is going above and beyond.
  2. I feel like this thread needs some pallet cleansers for all these bad color pallets.
  3. We wouldn't have gone if we didn't have money to make from it. Money, power, and influence were really the only good reasons to have American soldiers fight Asian wars. Viets have loyalty to Viet Nam and a stake in a civil war, Americans do not. To that I say the US was protecting its ally from a communist invasion. You can say what you want about communist boogeymen and the Red Menace, but nobody wanted Moscow influencing their politics. The USSR's "imperialism" makes the US almost look like a saint. Go read up on the history of South East Asia after the communist take over. It's brutal.
  4. Invite me too VDNKh#1996
  5. Try booting up in safe mode and see if it still does it.
  6. Download CPUID HWMonitor and take a quick look at the temperatures. You can also try looking at the Windows log files to see if anything triggered a shutdown. Your BIOS or UEFI might have built-in hardware diagnostic tests you can run as well.
  7. I just tested it in Win10. Put it to sleep and 20 minutes later brought it out of sleep. Uptime went ahead 20 minutes. IDK! So there's a new kind of weapon suppression system call Flow-Through Suppression. Introduction: Demonstration with a .50 BMG. Notice there is no ear protection. https://youtu.be/ndbfj-Jk0To?t=24s Seems really slick, huge improvement over what we have.
  8. False, try it now. Record the uptime, set it to sleep for like 10 minutes, start it back up, and record it again. 10 minutes have gone by. Now it's not like all those processes and service were running the whole time, so setting a computer to sleep for 10 days is not the same as leaving it on for 10 days. But, coming from IT, I still highly recommend shutting down your computer every night. Now for you Windows 8 and 10 people lets do an experiment, record your uptime and then Shut down your computer. Through the Start menu > Shut down, not restart. Now turn it back on and look at the uptime.
  9. Being able to guess any password/encryption key on my first try. I would use this for good though, exposing corruption and what have you. This super power breaks physics the most of all the answers on here. If all time stops, how does air move out of the way when you move around? If light stops, what would you see if you walked backwards? Or for that matter, if light is slowed down and you are walking faster than it, what would you see? It completely destroys special relativity. ^^^^^^^^^^^this^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Y'all need Jesus. This is my second pick. I've had dreams where i just swim through the air Peter Pan style and it's awesome. Though if I'm the one picking the super power I owe it to society to actually be helpful. It'd be really selfish if I didn't. So what would the most utilitarian super power be?
  10. Europa Universalis IV has a killer soundtrack. My personal favorite.
  11. The one screenshot I'm missing here is a Civ IV screenshot. I was playing as Germany came up with a good conquest victory strategy. I rushed for trans-ocean sailing tech so I could scout the new world, then I rushed for rifles and conquered it fairly easily. I spared the players in the new world, but made them give up all their resources to me. Then I rushed Corporation tech and founded Mining Inc. Mining Inc. gives you a production bonus for every metal you possess. So with all the metal I imported from the new world, I had crazy high production. Then I built tanks... lots and lots of tanks... On a standard sized map running and normal game pace, I had my 4 core cities make one Panzer every turn. I quickly defeated every one on my continent and won the game before 1945. The picture I had was my production statistic from that game.
  12. For your YouTube playback issue, have you tried reinstalling DirectX? Turning the web browser's hardware acceleration off?
  13. The point I was trying to make was why is activism for male specific issues, like prison rape, are But activism for female issues are not. Men are, by far, victims of more violent crime than women. They also commit the majority of violent crimes. Source 1
  14. They are 2 completely separate categories that simply share a similar name. A celestial body is exclusively either a planet or dwarf planet. Euler diagram A planet must not be a satellite of any other body. Even though the Earth-Moon system orbits the Sun, only the Earth is a planet because the Moon is our satellite. Except there is an algorithm to dictate whether a body has cleared the space around it enough to qualify as a planet or not. Source This video explains the dwarf planet/planet situation pretty well. norkDnRhUy8 What do I have to vent about? This thread.
  15. I'm sad that the only reference to GY!BE on this entire forum is that post. And this one.. Currently: qeYTylOd6As
