A meter will always be a meter.

Would you be happy to know that the meter has changed several times? The most recently being in 1975, where it was based on the speed of light. Prior to that it was something like the wavelength of light from a krypton-86 lamp. Which was apparently asymmetric, hence the problem. And before that it was a particular metal bar.

Which changed size depending on the room temperature... ;)

All numbers we impose on the universe are arbitrary. Some just appear to be less arbitrary then others...

Wasn't even born there. And by how much did it change? Ám?

Raithe has a point. ANY number we choose to measure things by is no more or less sensible than a monarch's appendage. The only hilarious thing in this discussion is your touching and childlike faith in the men in white coats.

Well if it had more seasons it would have gone through the usual, everyone hooks up with everyone, someone dies/transforms into a demon from another dimension, then they get back together; despite all the grudges, for the sake of something greater than themselves and just when they are about to fight it they cancel the series without a conclusion.
It's the Whedon cycle.

Whilst perusing the Witcher forums for mods, I came across this rather biting piece of ribaldry:


This just in: Renowned video game developers Bioware/EA have announced that despite creating over one thousand seperate pieces of downloadable and pre order content for their latest eagerly awaited masterpiece, they have forgotten to make the ACTUAL game.

One Mass Effect 4 developer who has been on the crunch since disco admitted that the game just got overlooked. "Dude, we were just so busy coding various tat for nickle and diming the suckers that we kind of forgot there WAS a game."

An EA executive when asked for comment announced that all dlc will be fully playable in other games and that there are no plans to actually release Mass Effect 4, because and I qoute: "We've allready made more cash selling a non existent product to our discerning customers than Michael Jacksons plastic surgeon, so screw 'em."

Fan reaction has been mixed with many long term fan stating that this was just a matter of time, however a large and vocal majority of fans (the Dragon Age 2 Fan Troop or 2 D.A.F.T.) have come out defending Bioware's corner. Stating that the developers are implementing all their dlc in other cross promotional games and that players shouldn't have the temerity to ask for an actual stand alone game, 2 Daft have called for the imprisonment and eventual execution of anyone caught criticising or not offering blood sacrifice to their lord and god, a move which EA has stated that they are considering for their next end user license agreement.

In this reporters opinion the assault course, kidnapping, robbery and torture that are required in the current eula are enough, but it seems that the pirate menace which funds terrorism and the drug trade (which EA are currently trying to corner the market on) may drive the publisher to develop such stern measures.

As always this is the Dirk Thrustington AI, bringing you your future news. Give us a minute and we'll condense ten thousand years of history into easily manageable soundbites.


Bit harsh but rather amusing.

Being an officer is a physically demanding job. If you can't restrain a non violent middle class kid you should be behind a desk or not in the police force. In other words, stupid lazy bitch.

I still get a better sense of someone's height when they say they're 6'3" than I would for 190 cm or something along those lines.


191cm, ha!

Your puny inches would deprive me of that important cm.
