  1. Re: What Fantasy/Sci-Fi book have you just finished? Please rate it... Read the five-book Vatta's War series by Elizabeth Moon. Made for a nice distraction, the writing is good...
  2. Re: Order of the Stick Huh. I did not get that one.
  3. Re: The cranky thread I'm not allergic, but I can't stand menthol, including in cough-drops.
  4. Re: Charging points for tech gear? You mean the "mundane" gear? What is it like? (No 6E here.)
  5. Re: Charging points for tech gear? Just taking small arms up a notch from the stats for modern real-world weapons gets you close to a superheroic level (see also, the thread for my SF game).
  6. Re: Charging points for tech gear? First thought / brainstorming -- charge the difference between, say, having the ability in the focus, and having it inherent?
  7. Re: New Model of the Universe Says Past Crystallizes out of the Future "Many worlds" is, IMO, bunk. I don't care what the abstract math says.
  8. Re: Order of the Stick True, the entrance may very well be right there.
  9. Re: Order of the Stick Is it just me, or did the original party that sealed and hid away the gates have even more party mistrust and conflict than the OotS?
  10. Re: Order of the Stick What a... jerk. Can't say what I'm thinking.
  11. Re: December 27, 2004: The Day Earth Survived the Greatest Stellar Attack -Ever **snrk** Yeah. I was just pointing out another example of how effective "simple" kinetic energy weapons can be.
  12. Re: December 27, 2004: The Day Earth Survived the Greatest Stellar Attack -Ever The most powerfull anti-armor weapons in real life are still purely kinetic in nature.
  13. http://www.technologyreview.com/blog/arxiv/24497/ Today, Ellis and Rothman introduce a significant new type of block universe. They say the character of the block changes dramatically when quantum mechanics is thrown into the mix. All of a sudden, the past and the future take on entirely different characteristics. The future is dominated by the weird laws of quantum mechanics in which objects can exist in two places at the same time and particles can be so deeply linked that they share the same existence. By contrast, the past is dominated by the unflinching certainty of classical mechanics. What's interesting is that the transition between these states takes place largely in the present. It's almost as if the past crystallizes out of the future, in the instant we call the present. Ellis and Rothman call this model the "crystallizing block universe" and go on to explore some of its properties.
