  1. Better for the real people plugged into it, not the NPCs. The real Simmons isn't supposed to be there, so presumably the others are supposed to be better off without her. What that suggests about Fitz is a bit worrying. But on the other hand they were intending to add Simmons later, so in theory there should be a place for her. I'm not sure a shared ideal world is very practical, since people's desires will sometimes be in conflict.
  2. NASA finds solar system with 7 planets

    Good point. I'd bet on cryogenics over FTL in our lifetimes. Though that won't get reports back to those of us who stay behind any faster, unless we go into suspended animation on Earth too, and you'd have to be really keen on exoplanet news for that to look like a sensible option.
  3. NASA finds solar system with 7 planets

    A generation ship is more feasible in the near future. Though we'll probably have warp drive before it arrives at Trappist-1.
  4. US politics: Donny, you're out of your element

    Hence the need for camps to hold people to "await hearings"?
  5. US Politics: Deep State Solution

    And there's little to no evidence that glasses of water put out house fires. The solution is using fire hoses, not writing off water as ineffective. Gun control doesn't reduce non-gun-related crime? How is that possible?!?
  6. US Politics: Deep State Solution

    And how did he commit that murder? And why did the person he seized the weapon from have a weapon to seize? Using this sort of thing as evidence that gun control doesn't work is like using a condemned building collapsing in an earthquake as evidence that construction standards don't work.
  7. US Politics: Deep State Solution

    Well no, of course not. Right-wing positions are substantially indefensible.
  8. Yeah. Hopefully she'll still effectively be a regular, since individual episodes focus on different characters anyway. Or she should have been expecting the shot, and deflected the bolt back at him herself. Turning your back on a humiliated and armed enemy of dubious honour isn't exactly a smart move. I'd be surprised if she doesn't end up doing that eventually. Though I guess she did explicitly reject the "Mandalorian Way", which doesn't seem like a step towards their leadership...
  9. SpaceX--Spacecraft, rockets, and Mars

    Yeah, that vid looks like a shot from a science fiction movie!
  10. TTTNE (v.468) AB I - a title of one's own

    So, an important question. In The Tiger Who Came to Tea, the tiger drinks all the water in the tap. When I was a kid, I assumed that was just a bit of children's book silliness. But is it possible that the house didn't actually have mains water, and the tap was connected to a household tank that really could be emptied by running the tap for too long? It does appear to be set in a city, not a rural area.
  11. US Politics: Deep State Solution

    It isn't, though. So you're saying that affirmative action worked to reduce sexism in hiring practises rather than promoted an anti-feminist backlash?

    I dual-boot; Linux most of the time, but switching to Windows when I have to for gaming and a few other things.
  13. US Politics: Deep State Solution

    That and the Democrats are basically the party of "let's not make things worse for a few years" rather than anything resembling an actual left wing force.
  14. US Politics: Deep State Solution

    And reducing the working week (30 hours seems like a good start) and increasing number of holidays. There aren't enough jobs to go round, so sharing them out more is good for everyone.
  15. First Fantasy Book or Series

    I'm under the impression they tend to prefer reading about protagonists a bit older than themselves. The Dark is Rising sequence definitely seems like a good idea to me.
