Some new video of the recent massive warehouse explosion in China:

:eyecrazy:


According to Reuters, that was shot from 1km away, and the guy taking the video got a "sunburn"

"Let's gooo!" indeed.

I am surprised that you did not see or hear their windows being blown in from the force of the explosions.  I agree, it was time to get out.

Ain't been reading or watching much news lately. What the hell was that anyway? Some kind of chemical factory accident? I remember years ago, there was a sugar plant here in the US that blew up in a pretty similar way. Because not many people are aware of it, but sugar can actually explode. Something I learned on a camping trip as a youngster when I got ahold of a bag of powdered sugar and started chucking handfuls of it in the campfire one night, hehe.

Bizarre:

http://news.nationalpost.com/news/world/why-many-drivers-in-china-intentionally-kill-the-pedestrians-they-hit
Quote
It seems like a crazy urban legend: In China, drivers who have injured pedestrians will sometimes then try to kill them. And yet not only is it true, it’s fairly common; security cameras have regularly captured drivers driving back and forth on top of victims to make sure that they are dead. The Chinese language even has an adage for the phenomenon: “It is better to hit to kill than to hit and injure.”

Nice visual aid illustrating how the incremental nature of gradual speciation makes the question, "when did the first human appear" not answerable.

Quote

https://twitter.com/ChessPiano/status/643384897281871872

"My 7 year old wanted to know who was the first person. So I made this and she now gets it."



It's fairly impossible to point definitively to the 'first human' in the chart, and that's already compressing something like 40,000 generations down to 30.

Imagine about 1300 more pictures between each picture on that chart, all just as gradual.

Ricky Gervais isn't a human at all. The chart is flawed.

David Bowie isn't human either. Pretty sure those pics in the middle are David Bowie.

The chart is flawed.

Yes it is - Michael Jackson could have showed up in practically every position on the chart and he only lived 50 years.

P.S. and before players like Beatdown get confused: 'handicap' is 100% a server-side feature. (Q2 servers never ask clients opinion on damage calculations.)
 

Admin

January 17, 2021, 03:22:04 PM
It's a customization on our FFA servers allowing you to increase difficulty by reducing the damage you deal to opponents. Setting handicap 50 means your shots do half damage.

What's handicap? I just saw a player (ateateate) change handicap from 100 to 69? I've never heard of that setting before.
