I'm really enjoying Orange is the New Black. It's a good show that makes you think a lot about modern social problems, and the humanization of inmates.

    In all seriousness, I finally understood the size of Europe when I learned individual nations were about the size of US states. Makes you wonder what it would've been like if the US was a balkanized group of countries.

The fragility of life is giving me really horrible anxiety right now. Probably shouldn't have watched "United 93" three weeks before I board my first plane.

    Turbulence is the worst thing about air travel. But damn, the turbulence must have been crazy for the passengers to cry on.

    Your chances of living to a ripe old age are very high unless you do stupid shit like wingsuit or something. There is some stat out there that about 50,000 people have been involved in plane crashes in the last 30 some years and 45,000 survived. Fly a first world airline though and sit on the wing.

    Any reputable pilot will be able to handle turbulence. They know how to get around it and through it smoothly. And no plane has every dropped out of the sky from it. It can be nerve wracking but not dangerous.

God dammit GW why would you kill Fantasy? I know it only made up 13% of your revenue but this is just gutless.

    For those of you who don't know, WHFB is completely gone and replaced by a beer and pretzels game called Age of Sigmar. Completely unbalanced (people have already started to figure out auto-win combos and shit). Who's idea was it to COMPLETELY AXE POINT VALUES?

    I can't handle that old bulletin board look anymore. That's what we had to put up with before nice looking forums were invented.

    The things that bother me are things like Orions don't have super powered healing and physical strength, nor do they require intersexed members for breeding. ViIn is too childlike and nothing like a Romulan, And the space spaz of a linguist can't seem to get a stable character behaviour, he's like a paranoid scitzophrenic.

    It takes place in a time after bothe Data, and The Holographic doctor, but the "transhuman" doesn't believe AI can reach sapience. Meanwhile he's created the equivalent of the AI from 'Her', and is tweaking himself up with borg like mods but nobody acknowledges that the borg are a thing. and the science, character and story writing seem unskilled at best.

    Good points. I would still like to see this happen, maybe not with that tech, but the Andromeda exploration sounds interesting.

    I won't be transferring anywhere unless there is a mass exodus. The vast vast vast majority of my posts are on /r/UnitedKingdom, /r/polandball & /r/Europe. Those kinda niche subs will be a wasteland on any new sites.

    There was an arxiv paper on that topic about a year ago, but I didn't really pay it attention. I should because these ideas keep coming up.

    We're already at photorealism for scenery imo, it's only close up that things look a bit dodgy still. Recon it will take a good 10 years to get the AI movements & interactions seeming human though!
