  1. The universe will end in 90 billion years.  Good thing we'll have plenty of time to put on clean underwear.

      If you look up "Universe heat death", it's many many more times than even 90 billion.  It's an unfathomable amount of time.

  2. Is there really nobody that can use a free laptop for the price of shipping?  It will be recycled two weeks from today if not claimed HERE .

      It's a nice laptop, I have two 17" ones from that era that have since been retired, played a lot of World of Warcraft on them back in the day!

      Did you know the chemical name for Viagra is really "Mycoxafloppin"?

       

      Edit - I'm gonna make my own status update with that...  :D

      @BydoEmpire The FDA changed the rules in 1997.  Just in time for the boner pill commercials to start in '98!

  11. Am I the only one that doesn't think Road Blasters is that great a game?

    1. thanatos

      thanatos

      I always loved RoadBlasters, wasn't too bad at it. 

      Hard/Race Drivin' not so much - though at a free play arcade like Galloping Ghost, they are more fun.  Otherwise those two just ate money and were too choppy.

      They are in space.  Pretty sure their paths can be adjusted...

       

      Two years ago when some were being launched and deployed they caused a lot of UFO reports.  I saw one batch one night, it was really cool.  Long string of lights going across the sky in a straight line evenly spaced.  Then I looked up the future dates and saw them a few more times.

      Supposedly they have changed them to be less reflective, as it was ticking off the astronomers.

    Meteorological Spring starts on March 1.

      On March 20, if it's a nice day, go out in public and yell "This spring is astronomical!" and see how people react.

      @Cebus Capucinis I've always thought it was light blue for 1%.  And I just discovered this handy chart via Google images, which seems to confirm my expectations, for me it has always gone red, blue, light blue, and pink.

      OC] What color are our milk caps? : r/dataisbeautiful

      Had what might be a good idea, calling the local children's hospital.  They probably have some sort of gaming setups.

      I don't care, because I am sad it won't be Green Bay!
