Re: The High Price of Insulin Is Killing US Citizens

We lost our own Yosemite Bear partly due to fuckery over his need for a named brand of insulin his HMO said wasn’t necessary as well as complications from a spider bite. Currently America has its sights on the NHS and this terrifies me. In an American style system I’m dead. I use about 8 pens of Api...

Re: Battlefront II Free on Xbox One

I don’t have Game Pass but got it for £6.00 on Saturday. I’d been wanting this game but didn’t want to give EA my money after the colossal fuck up over loot boxes. I can’t imagine they made much out of my £6 and I’m only interested in the single player campaign, which I really enjoyed. The x-wing le...

A company that relies on fan made mods to make the games playable was never going to make a good or even passable MMO.

Re: Marvel fires Chuck Wendig to salve alt-reich

Was there an editing issue with the first Aftermath book? When it was first released I had a look at the first chapter on Amazon preview, the text read like a script and was unpleasant to read. However a few days ago I saw the book in my local bookshop and I decided to have a read through and it loo...

Re: Electronic Warfare in Star Wars

When Lando says "we should get a reading" doesn't the copilot say something that Lando follows with "but how could they be jamming us if..if they didn't know we were coming." From context I think it's reasonable to assume the copilot said "we're being jammed." Nien Nunb: Imitubichu migama miu-tim L...

Re: EU: Vader Croaks. Who's next Sith?

One question regarding knocking off Vader. Now that the EU is dead what's the situation on Sith Force Lightning? Going by games which were very low on the old cannon scale every Tom, Dooku and Harry could hurl Lightning, but I've not seen any of the Inquisitors in Rebels use it, and Vader couldn't u...

Re: Tablet in day to day

Tablets are very handy for a number of things. There are some pretty good games, Fallout Vault in particular gets a lot of play from me. There are also some pretty sweet 40K games and ports of some older games such as GTA 3 and KOTOR. I also used my iPad to replace my knackered Kindle keyboard, plus...

Re: UK Armed Forces to be Shielded From Prosecution

There is also the long standing matter of The Troubles. It's well established that British forces acted criminally regarding Bloody Sunday in Derry and there are many allegations that British Armed Forces colluded with Loyalist terrorists.

Re: "Why no Medal of Honor for Chewie?"

Leia might be a bit of a racist herself, she does refer to Chewie as a "walking carpet" and in ESB suggests that kissing a wookie is distasteful.

Hamilton also tossed Vettel his hat too and there was no issue. Rosberg just can't handle the fact Lewis is his superior in every way.

Rosberg crying like a little child throwing a tantrum, and his 2nd place hat.

Now he's gurning to anyone who'll listen that Hamilton hit him on the first corner. Hamilton held his line, simple as.

The official from Mercedes didn't too too happy with Rosberg over the hat incident.
