  1. Re: The Puzzle of Astronomy's Unexplained Anomalies I knew about all of those except the Saturn one. It'll be interesting to see how those turn out, regardless of it being a new theory or a "um, it was measurement error" end of things.
  2. Star Trek transparent aluminum comes to real life! Transparent aluminium is 'new state of matter' July 27th, 2009 Transparent aluminium is 'new state of matter' Enlarge Experimental set-up at the FLASH laser used to discover the new state of matter. (PhysOrg.com) -- Oxford scientists have created a transparent form of aluminium by bombarding the metal with the world’s most powerful soft X-ray laser. 'Transparent aluminium' previously only existed in science fiction, featuring in the movie Star Trek IV, but the real material is an exotic new state of matter with implicatio

  4. Re: Holding the end of the world Dr. Anomaly: First, get someone to wrap whatever cloth was handy tightly around the hand he is using to hold it, so he doesn't accidentally drop it; then set about researching and analyzing it. Being a sorcerer-scientist, chances are good he'd figure out how to defuse it. If he can't, the next thing to try is draining the magic from it to make it (at least temporarily) harmless; fortunately for an attempt like that, the team's base is in a literally indestructible building that drains magic on contact (unless you've spent a lot of time practicing within it
  5. Re: What would happen - and at what cost? Something else that could be an economic reason for doing manufacturing off the Earth, if the posited cheap transport were available: pollution. Given a relatively cheap way to travel, and a supply of the most needed bulk raw materials somewhere else (asteroids, Mars, moons of Jupiter, whatever) I could see a corp going: "Hmmm. Comply with all the environmental regulations here, which is very costly, or move our production to a place without an environment to worry about [and no in-place regulations about what we can dump into it]? Let's take

  9. Re: Superbeing Rights Debate Balabanto, having read this whole thread, it looks to me like you have already made your mind up and instead of wanting opinions, are looking for a chance to publicly justify your stance. If I'm wrong, please forgive me, but that's how it looks, especially considering your responses have grown increasingly hostile with time.
  10. Re: Genre-crossover nightmares Whoops. That's what I get for assuming...
  11. Re: Genre-crossover nightmares I think he was being funny, given the post he quoted has an "h" missing from the spelling.

  14. Re: Celebrities This reminds me of one of the best convention games I ever played, years ago at GenCon. It was a horror-themed Hero System game, and took place on the movie set of a low-budget horror movie. We played the actors who were there to film the horror movie, the twist being the monster was real. It was, not unexpectedly, a TPK, but was a blast right up to the last, and my character almost survived! We were, basically, normals each with a couple of low-level Skills and maybe a Perk or Talent. Why this thread reminded me of this game is that at the beginning, whil
