  1. This! But seriously - excellent work you magnificent nerd! If I may ask, regarding identifying the symbol on the dice: I notice in the image captures of the dice that sometimes multiple facings can be seen in a single image. How did your image analysis algorithm determine which ones were not the real results?
  2. Jaws was never my scene and I don't like Star Wars.

    Aphra's Ship

    "She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid."
  4. Noted. However, your great-great-great-great grandparents having been thieves doesn't mean you don't have a right to defend yourself from being robbed.
  5. I've seen and heard several similar articles and comments from people over the last several week that are critical of the tariffs. The concerns are not unfounded but they all focus on the possible negative consequences to themselves without examining the bigger picture of why it's happening. China has unfair trade practices - they break trade rules, they manipulate their economy at their trading partners' expense, and they literally steal from us* (which besides hurting the companies being stolen from, is also a national security issue). They have been doing this for decades and no one has seriously challenged them on this (although to be fair we (the US) have not always been in the best position economically to do so). My current job depends heavily on trade with China and so it's not out of the realm of possibility that if the trade issues escalate and/or do not get resolved soon that it could result in me being laid off. But despite being heavily invested in the issues being resolved, I understand that there is a bigger picture and that the issues need to be addressed. *This also hits home for me because in the past I have worked with a Chinese foreign national whom several of my co-workers and I suspect was stealing trade secrets. (This was only one individual out of many Chinese people I have worked with in my career in case anyone gets the idea that our suspicion was based on race).
  6. First FPS? Wasn't it either Castle Wolfenstein or Doom circa 1993-ish?
  7. Oh man - this is brilliant! 1) It sounds super fun. 2) Seems like a relatively quick play. 3) Simple enough for younglings to get in on the action. 4) More accessible to the average person.* *Lure them in for the Fully Operational (tm) game later on.
  8. @Magnus Grendel - just want to mention that your point (c) above is (in my opinion) a spoiler for the book. Might consider adding a warning or making it hidden content. Aside from that, you made some good points about the book. I really enjoyed how it allowed the reader to see the OT saga through the eyes of low and mid level Imperial officers and how they are able to justify to themselves the actions of the Empire ("the Rebel terrorists forced the Empire to destroy Alderaan", for example).
  9. Consider that confirmed. Weird Al is canon.
  10. It hadn't occurred to me that they could kill the Falcon. That would acrually be more devastating to me than any other death that could occur.
  11. Dook U, man. Just Dook U.
