The US government won't even fund another Moon mission, so what makes you think they'll come up with FTL travel anytime soon? :lol:The fact that we don't have faster-than-light travel yet annoys me. Same with ubiquitous commercial supersonic airplane travel.
It's bout time already!
Forget about the moon. Right now for the first time the Americans don't have anything to put larger objects into orbit. The Russians and the ESA have. The NASA has relied on the Space Shuttle (which always only used to work with luck and fingers crossed anyway) for too long without thinking about what's coming after that.The US government won't even fund another Moon mission, so what makes you think they'll come up with FTL travel anytime soon? :lol:
It really irritates me about this kind of thing. Also that's a BBFC certificated game which unlike PEGI or the now defunct ESRB is legally enforcable.At a Gamestation store today and this 10 year old kid was in the queue getting Left4Dead 2. A game that has a 18 certificate on it. GameStation staff said nothing, kid bought the game. At which point i said "haven't you checked the age limit on the game?" the staff member shrugged his shoulders and the mother of this kid gives me a look that would make a weeping angel blink. I said "the age restrictions are there for a reason." the mother says to me "its just a game and you should keep your nose out"
well she didn't really say that, there was a lot more expletives and derogatory remarks made about me. just annoys me that when the game business gets so much stick for violence and so on. they all harp on about the games companies and not the bloody parents who don't care what games their kids play.
Erratic satnavs annoy me. Gee, thanks for avoiding that detour - and putting me right in front of an off-limits forest path!
My brain made exactly the same mistake you did when i read Calvinhobbes post."Mmmm, turn left here, big boy. Do you like my stockings? They go almost all the way up to my..." Oh. Erratic. So sorry.
Srsly?this VERY IMPORTANT problem
Hmmm... maybe that was her point all along. I did wonder why she left the two of us stranded in the middle of a forest and insisted on returning there."Mmmm, turn left here, big boy. Do you like my stockings? They go almost all the way up to my..." Oh. Erratic. So sorry.
Stop being a puss and command respect from the dog. They can sense leadership in a human, and they can sense weakness. So assert your standing and make sure it knows that you are ahead of it in pack hierarchy.The family dog, I hate it.
It peed on the kitchen floor last night because I was busy cooking and the only way it signals it wants to go outside is by looking at the kitchen door. Then I woke up this morning to find the little bastard had stolen my hat off the table and set about destroying it. He also bites my ankles constantly to assert his dominance so I can't spend any prolonged amount of time in the kitchen, my parents think is is hilarious.
I should point out that my family has only owned one dog that was trained and behaved well, and that was an older dog that was trained by it's previous owners. I'm so sick of all our family pets being awful, why can't my parents just accept they are crap with animals and give up?
