Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

But the two characters are unrelated. In all honesty, they should have been the same character. Don't know why they didn't go with that. Perhaps it was because they figured what the cadet did was too irredeemable for a character like Tom Paris (from Voyager) and created another character instead wh...

Re: INN is Back!!

This is very cool. I never used INN (didn't have the computer for it) but I remember thinking how neat it was reading about it in InterAction.

Re: Police Quest 1 - v2.0g - Disk One

Kind of strange. I just tried installing from my disk images via DOSBox and it did copy the VOL.3 file. What is strange though is that the file seems to have zero bytes, both on the hard drive and in the disk image. My current installation of the game is from an older compilation CD and does not hav...

I also have the same version (2.0G, Int # 2.917). Let me know if there's a problem with Tawmis'.

Re: Avengers: EndGame [Spoilers]

Finally saw it this past weekend. I really enjoyed it. I liked that they let the consequences of "The Snap" stand. Obviously, time travel of some sort was going to be involved, but it would have felt a little cheap if they simply had undone "Infinity War" so that "The Snap" never happened. That sai...

Re: When Elder Scrolls copies D&D...

there are so many similarities that it is hard to dismiss plagiarism. https://www.plagiarismtoday.com/2018/09/11/understanding-the-star-trek-discovery-plagiarism-allegations/ This is actually where I began to have my doubts about the lawsuit.

Re: When Elder Scrolls copies D&D...

Uggh. It seems all big name companies inevitably resort to plagiarism because they're just so unoriginal. Like CBS ripping off the AGS adventure game Tardigrades for Star Trek Discovery. I've read a little more about the tardigrade thing with DIS and it is possible that it may have been a coinciden...

Re: Plastics! Plastics plastics plastics...

Hmm, interesting. You mentioned that members of the Executive branch (e.g. the various Secretaries) are confirmed by the Senate, and that the Justices of the Supreme Court are approved by Congress - can the Senate or the Congress disapprove? What happens if the Senate or the Congress don't agree wi...

Re: Plastics! Plastics plastics plastics...

Okay. Here goes. Congress: The Senate: As you probably know, the US has fifty states. Each state gets to elect two senators. They serve six year terms and elections are held every two years, so every two years one-third of the seats are up for election. The House of Representatives: There are 435 me...

Re: Plastics! Plastics plastics plastics...

That takes care of the House of Representatives and the Senate. I told you it was complicated. ;) It's different, but not all that much more complicated than the US system. Then, the leader of the largest party in parliament forms the next government. The voters don't get to choose on that. Technic...

Re: Plastics! Plastics plastics plastics...

I'm not sure what you mean by "single stream". :oops: Can you explain, please? Recycling in the US has always been relatively low. So in the last few years, a lot of municipalities introduced "single stream" recycling. Rather than someone separating recyclables in different bins (like what most of ...
