@FAE with a greater difficulty comes a greater challenge. So the AI is better, but is it on par for that level of difficulty? (on Hard they look like on easy? (because on easy they are REALLY easy for what I read))
On parade series of mysterious rocks and buildings
The rocks and stones might tell something to you if you saw those mysterious ones introduced in this page.
If we mankind found the truth about the stone civilization left in the world, we might be able to find the peace.
AHHHH!!!! @FAE My last cook diner was a can tuna with green bell pepper, butter, pepper, salt, shoyo, mustard, tomatoes and some other spices (to "remove" the can taste from the tuna). Then, I slice a bread in half and fill it up to the top. Put some grated Gouda cheese on top and hit the oven for 3min~5min
That beauty was soft, juice and stunning!
The taste of tuna was alive, and the cheese was so juice
I'm on my quest to defeat the Dark Lord, and specifically this time I'm bringing the legendary merc Panty Shot along for the ride. However, he appears to have spawned with the "Naughty" modifier:
(Yes, that is his name. No I did not pick it.)
I've had a few odd adjectives applied to some of...
@Michel Tough question! I'm interested in many things, but I have to get my high school diploma declared valid in the Netherlands before I can go to university. I also can't afford to go to university until I get a job again.
Okay, so I'm trying to catch the 15-pound lunker in the fishing pond as an adult to get the Golden Scale (which is frustrating enough in itself, with the way the fishing seems to work...).
I use the fishing rod, and attract the attention of the big fish by the log. Except, EVERY time I lose the ...
@Gnome you're employed now, right? As long as you are paying whatever rent you might owe and spend appropriately on groceries, the rest of the money is up to you to spend or save as you see fit. (Just be sure to set some money assisted each pay period for a "rainy day" fund.
@LessPop_MoreFizz Yeah, I had to do that too a while ago. If you don't give it, you're not allowed to sell more than 200 items. No big deal though because they don't report it to the IRS unless you make over $20k.
> The United States Internal Revenue Service requires us to report gross sales for, and provide IRS Form 1099’s to, only those subscribers who are U.S. citizens or residents and who exceed 200 sales transactions in a calendar year and also exceed $20,000 in gross sales proceeds from those sales transactions in that same calendar year, from all of that subscriber's accounts.
Proposed Q&A site for this will be a place where application and solution architects can raise questions specifically for architectures. Architects need support in achieving some non-functional requirements and that causes changes in the architectures.
Colonel Tick Tock was basically a giant concept joke early on, where the plots were very formulaic, short, and dumb, and the theme song was like four times the legnth of the actual sketch. Eventually they figured out how to do other funny things with it, but it took a while.
I want to know the things or events that changes the performance of the truck (except the upgrades on the shop), just a brief summary or even a small list.
One of those that I want to know is for example, if the rain speeds up the truck, or does it modifies the handling a little bit, like from ...
While Elsa's ice magic is aesthetically effective on a superficial architectural level, the choice of ice as a fundamental building material presents a number of practical difficulties. How, for example, does Elsa's construction manage its water supply? Pipes of ice would freeze the liquid they w...
If a weapon is of the Slag element, does this make every bullet it fires of said element, or just the shots that proc the effect?
In field concept, say I'm using this here rifle:
If I shoot a critter with the above weapon, and I shoot a burst of say 10 rounds, (ignore the mag size you see abo...
So, I've reached the end of my "quests" and stuff on the planet, but because the game isn't "fully downloaded" it's not letting me leave. It's been stuck at 99.95% for downloading for about two or three weeks now, and it's kind of pissing me off because I would like to move on in my gameplay.
That's a development in any parliamentary democracy.
Overhead is too much for the state to handle, so the budget is constantly a mess. MP have the ability to change their pay, so they raise it because they can. The power of the people is muddied through complex election systems and long parliamentary terms.
Taxes get raised because the budget is insufficient because it has been drained in a variety of ways, and the people can't veto it.
And on top of that, maintaining the budget relies on keeping the economy flowing. Which then means being strongarmed by the industrial lobby.
There is a reason authoritarian systems keep coming back over and over again, one way or another. The massive lag between action and reaction, and the power of the media in steering public opinion - that's what's keeping this cycle at bay.
If we weren't convincing people that the system works, and that we "have to do this", we'd have single-party governments and dictators all over the place. Until the dictators mess up and the people take their power back.
In all honesty, as fucked-up as the Roman system was in terms of oligarchy and monarchy, the ability to have temporary dictatorships was a damn good idea that might even have a place today.
But then again, you have the media spinning "dictator" as inherently evil without any merit at all, so that's out of question as well, I suppose.
@FEichinger I thought about that but the problem with that system is that there were actually no safe guards that prevented the dictator from actually extending his powers indefinitely or running a coup d'etat.
Dictators were honor-bound not to do that, and how well would that work today?
