  1. This being obsidian I'm sure there will be some sort of speech skill equivalent used for quest resolutions, so I'd like to make a simple appeal: Please don't reduce it to picking weirdly marked dialogue lines and a skill check. In case you need more elaboration the point is made far better below: The implementation of forms of persuasion has gone from being great hallmark of Fallout series to a joke of a skill-check barred instant-win single dialogue lines in your recent games. You are a better developer than that. Thank you, that is all.
  2. No need to worry about that. We pretty much know that first generation of fusion power will be ruinously expensive and inefficient. That's the reasons why ITER had to be done internationally.
  3. If you are looking on the corporate side there will be a check-list you will be evaluated against. Getting on a junior developer position may not be easy given the times. And whatever you do try to avoid one of the intern mills that abuse employees as far as law allows.
  4. Don't worry about that, you do well enough with grammar to manage. The problem is checking the right boxes to get a foot in a door somewhere.
  5. But that's exactly what you'd expect from military man coming to own slaves in those days, he would think the plantation slaves had a problem with discipline. And he might have been right as Custiss drove the whole thing heavily into debt and would still free the slaves in his will. IIRC Lee tried to stop the manumission outright - he just lost the legal case and had to go through with it. That wasn't just the position of Lee on slavery but that of the entire confederacy. Breaking with his government (not to mention regular troops and officers) over such a major policy point wo
  6. For drugs it's partially research costs. When you pay for more drug development than the rest of the world combined these things will happen.
  7. The point being that authors don't matter, it's the classic 'technology isn't perfect' attack piece that transitions into yet another Koch brother conspiracy. It's build on misleading comparisons so it can draw absurd conclusions and offers no solutions to boot. If you really want self-criticism from environmentalist movement there are saner voices out there.
  8. Except it has little to do with environment and a lot to do with environmental movement. And as nutty as those people can be, this is just a predictable attack on technological solutions to climate change. Something you'd find in a badly researched denialist blog.
  9. It would also allow far greater restrictions in freedoms - how about some outright media censorship? As for the essential civil rights - these won't save lives and you certainly can't eat them. I can't believe you are making me defend the Polish government.
  10. We will only know if it's horrible when the whole thing is over. For all we know the virus may be uncontainable and we are falling into useless panic.
  11. That ladder now only leads into someones bottom. A bottom held unmovingly in place by a safety net. The reality is that many people deserve their falls just as others deserve a chance to climb.
  12. A society is a zero-sum game. One man's safety net could have been another's man ladder.
  13. Depends if you mean electricity or all power generation, which curiously enough usually shows which agenda is being pushed. In case of electricity UK actually did a pretty good job. IIRC the carbon intensity of a kWh has dropped over 50% thru the last decade. Also damaging the credibility of her cause as the cash grab and publicity stunt is apparent to almost everyone.
  14. You can easily argue that they were only latecomers to the games of imperialism and colonization which always left dead by the thousands.
  15. I was going to laugh at the weak bait but is seems to have worked. How the mighty how fallen...
