Each service will be charged with developing policies to integrate women into every military job. For instance, the defense official said, it's likely the Army will establish a set of physical requirements for infantry soldiers. The candidate, man or woman, will have to lift a certain amount of weight in order to qualify. The standards will be gender neutral.

Seems to me that the women that qualify will have no problem pulling their own weight, as it were.

Yep and it is also time for them to start registering for Selective Service.

I'd skip it.  From the looks of that video, it wouldn't garner a score of over 20%.

Today (the Wednesday before Turkey Day every year) always holds a special place in my gaming heart. Sixteen years ago back in 1996, this was the day that I received my first 3D video card, the Intergraph Rendition Reactor.

I waited all day at my job for the card. Seconds were minutes, minutes were hours, hours were days. I visited the mail room every 10 minutes, so frequent that when FedEx did show up at 2:30, the mail room boss was just as excited for me (or he was happy he didn't have to deal with me anymore).

I zoomed home, installed the card and drivers and fired up Indycar Racing 2, one of two games included (the other was Quake). My jaw hit the floor as I appeared in my pit stall at Michigan International Speedway. All the jaggies were.........gone. I couldn't believe the ultra-fast frame rate or gorgeous picture. I played ICR2 all weekend, marveling at the scenery and watching hours upon hours of my replays. It was that Wednesday my life really did change to a degree.

This started a personal tradition and I continued to use Thanksgiving weekend as a HUGE gaming time for me. That Wednesday in 1996 will forever be special to me and always an anniversary of sorts.   I seriously cannot believe it has been sixteen years since then.

I'm glad it's going ftp.  I'll go back and finish up some storylines.  I just had a really hard time justifying paying $15 a month for it.

I'm with ya.  I could see paying $5-$7 a month, but sure as hell not $15.

Which makes you wonder....why not offer a $5 a month price point before going F2P?
146  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Telltale]The Walking Dead on: September 02, 2012, 09:33:26 PM
By far, I thought this was the best episode yet.  In my 42 years on this planet, I have never wept during a video game......until now.  I'm sure my emotions were helped by the fact that I have little kids.  (Staying away from spoilers.)  These characters are phenomenal and the writing is beyond superb.

Previously, Romney's Obama's strategy was to avoid specifics and keep sniping at Obama Bush on the economy while positioning himself as the nebulous alternative. The idea was to run out the clock while trying to damage the president in any way possible, without getting pinned down on specifics.

Funny how that works.  Hope and Change and All That.
