I'm not quite sure how you can avoid a political discussion when the reason for the shortages is at least partially political.
Isn't is more paranoia than political?
What makes you think there's a difference in this case?

Wiki has you covered.  From the tags on some of the photos, it appears that there is post processing that can be done to create the effect instead.

Looking at some of the photos, however, I find it difficult to tell that anything has been done.

I liked it. Better than 95% of network sitcoms. Not laugh out loud funny, but enjoyable.

I disagree.  I find CBS has the best comedies at the moment, what with their entire Monday line-up and Gary Unmarried.  Although, I would watch P&R before I would ever watch Worst Week again.

Quote from: Moliere on April 12, 2009, 06:42:19 PM

Two other Somalis, one involved in the negotiations and another in contact with the pirates, also said the talks collapsed because of the U.S. insistence that the pirates be arrested and brought to justice.
This must be a foreign concept to people in Somalia.
Picture Depression-era U.S. with the whole bank robber things.  At that time, they were idolized and seen as modern versions of Robin Hood.  I can certainly see that these pirates, brining millions of dollars into the local economy, are not in the least looked down upon by the majority of the citizens of Somalia and they would be unwilling to turn them over to any sort of law enforcement.

Maybe we should fight money with money and offer to pay the equivalent or more of these ransoms to people who will turn them over to the authorities.  The trick is, there really aren't any authorities in Somalia at the moment anyway...

The situation in Somalia would be very different if not for the complete policy shift by Clinton after the Battle of Mogadishu

7854  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / PETA takes on the Lich King on: April 11, 2009, 05:47:27 PM
PETA has decided that playing whack-a-seal in Northrend is a sign of loyalty to the Lich King and is holding a save-the-virtual-baby-seals event in World of Warcraft that began at 1 P.M. EST today.

Quote from: PETA
Activists from across the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor are banding together to put a stop to the atrocious seal slaughter. Anyone who slaughters baby seals for their fur must surely be in service to the evil Lich King.  You must be in the WhisperWind realm in order to fight... go to Northrend, where you will find a zone called Howling Fjord, where the baby seals live on glaciers and boats float in the fjords. This will be the battleground to stop the slaughter.

Maynard's too busy making wine these days anyway.  He was actually in the DFW area a couple of weeks ago on a wine appearance and leveraging the local rock station to get people to come out.  Almost like he knew that people would come see his new stuff based on his old stuff....

From my past (limited) experience with fishing, you need something to carry them.  Most true fisherman will use a fish stringer.

(fishing) A cord or chain, sometimes with additional loops, that is threaded through the mouth and gills of caught fish.

Now that I think about it, I'm getting a Shield-lite kinda vibe from it. 

As for Cudlitz, I got the feeling that he really wanted to put the kid through trial by fire and the talk after the shooting was kinda meant as a pep talk to get him through it.  Not exactly motivational speaker level of talk, but trying to get through to him so he didn't shut down.

I often wonder how Gamestop stays in business.  The two closest to me are next door to Walmarts.  The Walmart often has a better selection of both console and PC games at better prices.  It seems to me that in an effort to be everything to everyone, Gamestop lost all marketing differential beyond being a used console game shop. 

The Walmarts in the Dallas area keep all of their console games under lock and key.  PC games are fair game for any shoplifters, but if I wanted to get a console game, I have to find the KeyMaster.  It makes me feel like being roasted in the depths of the Slor is preferable.

For even more fun, go watch It Takes a Thief and you will see just how quickly they can trash your house, grab all your good stuff including anything that you've hidden, and be out the door.  15 minutes is about right in most cases.

When no one is talking any more about the games you wanted six months ago, it's easy to forego the purchase.  And if there's nothing I'm just dying to get, I'll forego it.  I think we all have backlogs of stuff we want to finish.

Quote from: Eel Snave on April 09, 2009, 01:11:10 PM

Yeah, really I'm only wanting a PS3 for MLB the Show, but I'm starting to get confused.  For instance, there are some 80 GB models with BC, but it's only software emulation so some games don't work well.  There are 6 separate SKUs for a system that just came out two years ago.  How does that make sense?

Because Sony believes that instead of dropping the price, the consumer wants 'extra value' (bigger HD, more bundled games, etc) with their PS3.

And yes, the 80GB models with 'limited' (about 75-90%) BC are now EXTREMELY rare - there hasn't been a model with any BC at all in ages.

I bought one last summer with my stimulus check.  It was the MGS4 pack that released in June.

I didn't get home in time, but I have it set to record next week for a trial.

Life is awesome imo.  The second season finale was last night.  I picked up the first season (11 episdoes) on DVD from an Amazon sale.  I'm actually surprised that Season 2 was 21 episodes.  It seems like it went by a lot quicker than that.
7874  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: There is no life on Mars on: April 09, 2009, 02:11:51 PM
I have not watched the show from either source, but from what I hear, the endings to the shows are substantially different depending on which side of the pond on which it was filmed.
7875  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Thinking about getting a PS3... on: April 09, 2009, 01:19:40 AM
Alefroth, there were some 80 GBs that were BC, but not all of them, and I don't believe the new ones are.  I specifically waited for them to come back out last summer to ensure that I could still get my PS2 goodness on.
7876  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Unusuals on: April 09, 2009, 12:37:49 AM
I have not heard of this show.  If I get out of work to watch it, I may give it a look.  It's got to be better than the first episode of Surviving suburbia, Bob Saget's new show.
