Everything Else / how do you stop a re-eccuring nightmare?
« on: November 10, 2006, 11:30:54 am »
does anyone know how to? and before you ask, it is not me who is having them.

Under No curcumstances is this thread to turn into a argument because of someone saying somthing horrible or offensive.

does anyone think that Britains government is slowly but surely nosing its way into our lives, i do not mean they are bugging phones or putting cameras in homes or anything like that, but in another way, i'll give some examples of what i mean

one fifth of the worlds CCTV cameras  are in britain,  thats one camera for every 14 people, if you live in london you're caught on camera an average of 300 times per day. some of the cameras have facial recognition software in and others are enbedded in streetlamps so they get a very close view of the people,

the prime minister wants to put everyones DNA on a massive database

some civil rights are being revoked, such as the government now being able to hold someone in custody for no reason for up to a month

new identity cards that hold much much more info and again draw info from a massive database soon to contain retinal scans and finger prints of many civilians

many people think britain is or is becoming a survailence society, do you think we are? and if so, do you mind?

Spore: General / Geography and spore
« on: November 01, 2006, 10:41:38 am »
i started thinking, will spore have allot of the geollogical process that earth has,

 if you make a planet really cold will glaciers be formed at the tops of mountains and come down creating U-shaped valleys, will you see the effects of the freeze-thaw erosion , will the sea erode away the coast and create spits and stacks and caverns, will rivers wear away at their edges and will they form ox bow lakes and other things, will citys be flooded if placed in the wrong areas, will offshore volcanoes slowly develop into volcanic islands and will any of the other countless processes happen?

i know it would be rediculous to expect some of the more complicated ones in but i think that volcanoes and other simple process could be added.

i would like you to really think about your answer rather than just clicking "No"

I would, in my opinion, sapience is a curse, it gives you the ability to know how much your life sucks, it makes you want to be happy when other animals are just happy to BE, it makes you want the things you can't have, simply because you can't or don't have them, you are smart enough to know your own mortality and no matter what you have you still know that your a tiny insignificant life form and a crappy planet and you gonna die in a little while,  the average life expectancy is a absoloutly tiny amount of time when you think about it.

ignorance IS bliss,

 to an animal, the most important thing in the universe is them, an animal does not recognise its own mortality, an animal does not want to get the latest gadget, an animal is not doomed to get a job and live a miserable existence and an animals do not consider the existence  of a higher being of somekind. they are just happy to exist and they don't question it.

an example of what i think is a pet dog, if you regulaly fed a pet dog and it had a bit of freedom (which is what most animals have) then it would be happy its entire life, if you did that with a person they would be absoloutly miserable and probably kill themselves or go insane or somthing.

can it be done?

52
well. . . . who?
 
please could you also say what their accomplishments are or why you picked them

i have always thought that it was Charles Burgess Fry, he spoke 5 langauges, played in a FA cup final, he was one of the best players ever for (and he captained) the England Cricket team, played for the Rugby union for the university of Oxford, holds a world record for longest jump from a standing position, graduated from Oxford, he was a delegate to the league of Nations, he could jump backwards from a standing position onto a table, met adolf hitler and he was offered the Throne of Albania but declined and also. . . . He Want insane.

that is one hell of a Résumé

Console Games / Why? i ask you nintendo and sony. . . . WHY?
« on: October 08, 2006, 02:52:51 am »



look at the release dates, the EU is is a market that is just as big and important as the U.S market so why are we europians not getting the PS3 until 4 months after america, and the WII until almost a month after?

the americans are even getting the WII before the japanese, the creators of the console.

Everything Else / I Want One of Those dot com
« on: September 26, 2006, 11:41:01 am »
Stuff you Don't need. . . . . . . . . but really really want.


It's awsome, its british based (i think) so you might have to pay a bit extra for delivery to the americas or the continent but this site is awsome,

i mainly buy desktoys and other things like that from them from them but they also sell cool things like clay peigon shooting trips, sky diving trips and even Zero gravity trips

Everything Else / what is this with hybrid cars?
« on: September 25, 2006, 12:20:55 pm »
they arn't even that economical, its much more efficiant to transfer the energy straight to kinetic energy rather than making electricity with it then turning it into movement. the process of turning the fuel into electricicty is not 100% efficient and so you waste energy and thus is less economic, hybrids are also slower and less fun to drive.

fully electrical cars are only economical if you get the electricity from a company that uses renewable sources for electricity, if they use a fossil fuel then you are wasting energy and would be more economical to use a diesel.

what have i missed that makes hybrids more economical than a diesel?

Console Games / using a WII with an interactive whiteboard
« on: September 25, 2006, 11:51:48 am »
will it work? the whiteboard in question is basicly a giant projector T.V that i will use as a T.V a computer moniter and to play consoles on that works by projecting the image onto a board, you can write on the boards with a special pen, the board senses where the pressure is and puts that through to the computer which uses it to tell where to put the mouse and as it draws it on the computer the image is then taken from the computer to the projector.

i didn't explain that very well but i was just wondering if a WII would work on this system

p.s does anyone know where to buy a touchscreen for a pc where you actually see an image of the screen on the touchboard itself rather than having to look back and forth between the touchboard and the pc? for about 100 pounds sterling

Spore: General / cybermen! (this is not a confirmation)
« on: September 23, 2006, 01:15:42 am »
yes i know it would be nice to be able to make your citizens into cyber[insert name of species here] like these guys here



and i also know that to hope we can do that is a bit aspirational.

but i would like to know this. . . . .. . . .


will we be able to create tiny bipedal vehicles that resemble large men.

these would be cheap due to their small size and all so you could make large numbers of them and also your ufo could carry/transport alot of them.

now wouldn't it be fun to drop 30 of these and watch them attack a tribe?

does anyone else think we can do this?
