  1. Which car would you rather own?

    I already have the best vehicle a person could own... a jeep wrangler
  2. UK leaves Europe

    So does anyone in the U.K. think this might cause the Scots to reconsider staying in the U.K.? What about Northern Ireland? Didn't folks there mostly support the E.U.?
  3. Boston Dynamics has its Atlas robot moving with out its tethers
  4. Elite: Dangerous

    I couldn't get into this game, I saw the potential in it and I wanted to like it, but I ended up hating this game and regretted buying it. The trailers lured me in because they showed all this activity of players dog fighting around space stations exploring but what I saw was a universe devoid of other players for the most part. On the rare occasions I found other players they usually chose to grief me while I traveling or trying to collect bounties. The missions are very dull and are a grind fest of resource farming, bounty farming and flying from A to B. I was hoping the update Horizons would help me get into this game, but I found out that Horizons isn't so much a update but pretty much a re-release of the original game that comes with the update. So you have to buy a second copy of the game in order get the update and yes you will pay the full price of 49-60 USD. Seems like a very underhanded way of milking people for their money
  5. Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/Daesh) Discussion

    ISIS, making a claim it beheaded a Russian CNN, article: http://www.cnn.com/2015/12/02/middleeast/isis-russian-beheading-claim/index.html
  6. Fallout 4

    I like the game over all. The glitches are annoying and some are game breaking. I was going to finish the game's main story with the Railroad faction, but after destroying the Brotherhood airship, that Idiot NPC Tinker Tom managed to crash the stolen vertibird and get himself killed and I wasn't able to complete that quest line. So I had to reload to a earlier save only this time I sided with the Brotherhood and shot that same NPC in the face with a gattling laser for making me invest all that time only to wreck that quest line. What I don't get is where is the Boston accent? Would of been kinda funny to hear super mutants speaking in a Boston accent.
  7. I thought the marines were already getting a new vehicle that rolled on tracks called a AAAV. Did that get scrapped?
  8. Diplomatic incident between Russia and Turkey

    I duno, what kind of damage to its rep do you reckon Turkey will suffer? Its not as if the EU was about to finally grant the Turks full EU membership or that it even had much of a favorable view from Europe to begin with and given the state of the economies of Europe I doubt they would even want anything to do w/ EU membership now. They seem to have good support from the Saudi's and other wealthy Sunni Arab states so I doubt they have anything to fear from possibly getting kicked out of NATO either. I think they realize that and are happy to assert themselves knowing nothing will happen to them that they can afford to do with out.
  9. Diplomatic incident between Russia and Turkey

    I can't really fault them though for wanting to look out for their own though, after all Russia invaded 2 countries and annexed territories from both under that pretext. I think if Europe had just allowed Turkey membership into the Union some years back, they wouldn't feel the need to go and try to try to expand their sphere of influence east towards Syria.
  10. Diplomatic incident between Russia and Turkey

    I doubt anything will come of this.Turkey isn't some little poor country that can be pushed around. I read somewhere that the area where the incident occurred was populated by ethnic Turks.
  11. The space thread

    kinda felt we needed something related to space and i wanted to share this video of the Orion capsule reentry that I though was pretty neat. and here is a wiki about the SLS rocket vehicle that will be sending it into space and to mars. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_Launch_System
  12. Ukraine General

    than maybe those mysterious green men can suddenly appear in the region to help them out
  13. Ukraine General

    i think instead of sanctions, maybe the west should try exploit this siberian independence movement. i think the possibility of having 2/3 of his country breaking away and become independent might cause putin to leave his neighbors alone. otherwise whats good for the goose is good for the gander.
  14. AK-74 vs M4/M16

    I own a Yugo imported ak and used to own a Stag Arms AR 15 rifle. I sold the latter and used the money as well as tax return money to buy a PTR 91 .308 (its a G3 clone). Sooo... imho at least, I think its got the best of booth guns and then some.
  15. that robot reminds me of the scene from robocop 2:D its movements even look similar to the movie robots http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJDztqCG91g
