The FPS combat looks decent enough, even if it isn't the most creative approach to a cyberpunk game...

How many cyberpunk games have you played?...

Quinn has repeatedly shown herself to be a bully, liar, and generally trashy person (aside from the meme with Eron). Nothing she says about anyone should be assumed to be true without actual evidence.

Nobody is responsible for a suicide beyond the person who commits it.

This is possibly the most retarded thing you have ever said. And that is quite the accomplishment.

It's like you read "Nobody is responsible for a suicide beyond the person who commits it." And then stopped reading after that.

Literally no one is responsible for the ultimate act other than the actor though myriad outside and inside forces can lead to one wishing to commit that ultimate act.

On the surface, it seems like an ex girlfriend accused her former boyfriend of essentially illegal acts via twitter (which is weird, why not go to the police?), the accused' workmates basically agreed that he was capable of such deeds and ousted him and then he ran off an killed himself.

Lot's of folks have been through similar I imagine but didn't put the suicide coda on it. That was all him. I was reading that his sister said he suffered from bi-polar, or depression or some such, which puts him squarely into the bullseye of a suicide solution given the circumstances. But again, his final act was in his choosing, others didn't make it for him.

Cool story.

Oh hey Zoe Quinn drove a guy to suicide.

Recently, Forbes had the following to say about star citizen

None of this is news.

I think it is for the people who may be casually following the game's (lack of) progress. Not everyone is blessed to follow the scam daily like we do in IRC.

I totally agree with the statements above. And I wonder why no flat-earther has replied yet. Do they know they are wrong?

Refrain from "me too" posts, and more generally, posts that don't contribute anything to the topic.

Please show me ONE post of a flat earther that contributed to a topic. Then I will apologize.

So you were on three warnings in a short period already. Moving to a three day ban now so you can take a moment to read the rules. If you decide to come back, please keep your whining, angst-filled posts in CN or AR. Thanks!

Refrain from "me too" posts, and more generally, posts that don't contribute anything to the topic, warned. One liners like "do they know they are wrong" only serve to derail the discussion. Also, the thread isn't even 12 hours old and it is a topic that has been discussed a million times before so you aren't breaking any new ground here.

I’m in favor of gun control but think banning them is silly. License them to ensure competence. Maybe have firearms inspected as part of the license renewal, so that authorities can ensure you still possess the guns you claim to. Don’t sell guns to mentally ill or criminals. Make people whose guns are involved in a crime that haven’t been properly reported either criminally or civilly liable or both.

Going to have to repeal/replace the 2nd amendment for any serious restrictions to actually be put in place.

Please stop with the gigantic quote pyramids. It needlessly clutters the thread.

The link provided by totallackey  clearly states that one can discern curvature at 35,000 feet.
Try reading the actual source which was even listed in the article. It has been gone over on this forum repeatedly:
http://thulescientific.com/Lynch%20Curvature%202008.pdf

So, again, what field of view did you personally have when you observed the earth's curvature on the horizon (at night...), and at what altitude?


Do you doubt I flew military jets at 35,000 and above?
I have no way of knowing if you did or not.

I provided that information as a baseline for how far on can see at that altitude.  If the horizon is that far away at night, that means it is that far away during the day.
So you didn't actually see curvature on the horizon, got it. Thanks for clearing that up.



Right here in this thread:

" I have witnessed Chicago from Michigan City, IN, at a distance of over 30 miles. I have witnessed the shoreline and steel mills of Gary, IN, from Michigan City, IN, a distance of over 20 miles."

Seems to be a perfectly accepted argument.  But an "I have seen X which shows or implies curvature" is summarily dismissed.
I would suggest you address issues you have with things people say with the people who said those things, instead of deflecting to strawmen when your made up stories fall apart.

First of all, why is "I saw such and such" a perfectly acceptable piece of information from your side, while "I saw such and such" is not from the other?  Rather convenient, wouldn't you say. 
Please keep your strawmen arguments out of the upper fora, as all it does is derail the topic and makes it look like you are avoiding the discussion. If you can't can't answer, just say so. Trying to deflect by arguing against a claim no one is making gets us nowhere.


Secondly, I did provide detail.  I have seen the lights of Oklahoma City from Omaha while flying in a USAF T-38 at night.  That is just one example of many.  Check the distance between those 2 cities.  If one can see that far straight ahead, it stands to reason that one can see twice that distance from left to right.
How is that remotely relevant to personally seeing the curvature of earth's horizon at 45K feet. That is what I am asking about, not what cities you claim to have seen while flying. I am also very interested in understanding how you saw curvature on the horizon while flying at night.

At 45,000 feet, according to RE math, you would not be able to see any curvature.

False.  As I said above, I could see a city 400 miles away.  That implies I can see an 800 mile horizon at 45,000 feet.  The circumference of the earth is about 24,000 miles.  Thus, 800 miles has 12 degrees of arc (800/24,000 X 360 = 12), which is easily discernible by the naked eye.

It absolutely is not easily discernible unless you have a rather large field of view, according to RE maths. You would have to provide more information than just saying you were at 45,000 feet (like where you were and what you were looking out of) What is more likely, is that your bias let you perceive that you saw something that you did not. Or, you are just making things up. As an engineer, you should be more thoughtful about these things. So far, it seems you are just posting arbitrary math problems that you think support your position, when in fact you likely did not take any time to validate any of the maths or measurements.

Reminder that this isn't a healthcare debate thread, regardless of how many personal anecdotes alleged boomers like totallackey have (which totally isn't a larp).

Discussing the topic of drug import/export from the Trump admin is fine. But lets not keep going down rabbit holes that have nothing to do with the orange god emperor.

You can make another thread if you want to discuss how objectively dysfunctional American healthcare is compared to other 1st world countries.

Flat Earth Theory / Re: Questions about the "infinite plane"
« on: July 30, 2019, 09:46:34 PM »
What is the equivalent to gravity in the infinite plane model?

I don't know the infinite plane model all that well, but can direct you to where you can find more information. The gist is that some people well-versed in maths worked out that gravity can work on an infinite plane just as it does in RE. The alternate theory is more philosophical in that "things fall down."

Please correct me if I am wrong, the word infinite means "limitless or endless". If that is true, how can the flat earth be an infinite plane? Given that UA is accelerating the flat earth plane upward at a constant 9.8 m/s, what force could possibly be moving an infinite plane at a constant 1G?

UA and infinite plane are separate FE models.

inb4 Parsifal cricizes every sentence of the OP. Also inb4 Parsifal quotes it in his AR thread.

On the actual topic, Ansible. But it would probably help to know what your goal is (aside from making a lab for the sake of making a lab). You can certainly use those tools, but I believe that method is a bit "dated."
