"Coastal California Firestorm"

Tomorrow, I think, foreign interests will try to oust Californa's Coastal Comissioner from office for doing his job, namely, protecting the natural patrimony of the United States' Pacific Coast.  The attempt is hostile and probably I'll fated, yet the fact that such ignorant audacity is given a chance in court, well, welcome firestorm.

I like it, though I have some reservations about the time/energy it would take to assemble all those amino-acids, carbs and various nutrients into actual muscle tissue.  The way in which meat was referred to as "cells" and the preparation by compression into "balls" made me think not...  yet.

Yeah, those were kind of my thoughts. Particularly the resources needed to make the "meat".

The worst thing, that just occurred to me, is the meat(?) would not be imbued with essential life-force and as such is totally useless for all purposes related to sacrifice and/or consumption.  This mockery of the gods is how the world ends; every time, every single time.

Like this perhaps?
Quote
possible explanation for the failure to crush the rebellion was offered by author Carlos Alberto Montaner: "Batista does not finish Fidel out of greed ... His is a government of thieves. To have this small guerrilla band in the mountains is to his advantage, so that he can order special defense expenditures that they can steal."[21] Batista's rule became increasingly unpopular among the population, and the Soviet Union began to secretly support Castro.[62] However, some of Batista's generals also criticized him in later years, saying that Batista's excessive interference in his generals' military plans to defeat the rebels hampered Army morale and rendered all operations ineffective.

Why focus on a stand-up individual like Falcone when you can take-out an entire country instead?  I mean, he gets all that TNT while the average Iraqi citizen only got 40lbs dropped on him.  It's just not fair. :horrormirth:

Trump is considered badass because it behooves the puppeteers to create a vehicle that seems to embody principles of independence and self-reliance ("manly") while still being just a puppet.  In turn, this distracts the voters from their own strings.  It's win-win.

GQP:  it is that last point I was afraid of, re: Lessig

I mean, only being able to hold (lack of) campaign strategy against him is something I could be proud of.

Today, I was surprised to recall that Lawrence Lessig is running for president.  Then I was like, wait a minute, didn't I like some of his work?  Preliminarily, I can find nothing wrong with him, and he seems to generally do the right thing.  Even admitting that he does not really want to be president is in keeping with the kind of hidden traits I may be looking for in a candidate.  So, excepting previous political experience, what's wrong with this one?

Godspeed on the move - and looking forward to your returning :fnord:

b/c of decades of vidya-games exile my opinion may not be so informed, though I was tempted to change that, on a visceral level, seeing Lara slipping all over the place, it's like she needed me; or I wanted her to, at least.

The previous game you were playing looked cool too.  I liked how the guy was walking around with fire/plasma/magic in his hand and could then also go into that upper celestial/zodiacal realm - youtuubes shit the bed at that point so Im sure it's even cooler.

[Ed] Only criticism of both is jerky camera movement when character turns left or right.  Might have something to do with rendering engine trying to maintain isomorphic perspective.  I don't if it's a "playability" compromise, but it was detracting for a spectator, seeing how otherwise everything was beyond expectation.

Rise of the Tomb Raider is visually amazing.  I may have to do a blind playthrough of this and throw it up on teh Youtoobs
That whole ice-climbing hook was great - youtuubes finally let's me watch it again, somewhat.
