Gordon Ramsay praised the baked goods/desserts, not knowing they were pre-made by someone else and that Amy's Baking Company was merely reselling them.

+Greg Dean Welcome back to G+

I know you're a big fan of MMOs in general and Ultima Online in particular. I haven't noticed you talking about Shroud of the Avatar on your site at all. I'm not sure if you're aware of it, but +Richard Garriott de Cayeux  and +Starr Long are making a spiritual successor to all things Ultima.

Backers get alpha/beta access, which they open up one weekend a month for the latest build. I've been enjoying playing the builds to this point.

There are only 4 days left to get Founder rewards. The people who backed the project early get special Early Founder rewards. But existing Early Founders can gift a copy to others, conferring the Early Founder rewards to them as well.

I'm hoping/assuming you've already backed SotA as a big Ultima Online fan. But if not, send me a message and I can help you get the Founder rewards.

I hope to see you in game!

Shroud of the Avatar is a crowd funded upcoming fantasy RPG that is both single player and an MMO with its selective multi-player. You can play the entire game single player offline, online with friends only, or fully online in a persistent world with everyone else.

It is a spiritual successor to the Ultima series (including Ultima Online), known for immersive virtual worlds and great stories. The Ultima games were the first ever to bring shades of morality in their games. UO also had the best in game housing and crafting that no MMO has really matched to date, 17 years later.

You can pre-order the game for $45 right now, and there is no monthly fee for online. But they're doing a special promotion right now, where the original Founders (people who backed early in the original Kickstarter) can gift a copy of the game to someone else for $40, and the recipient also receives all the early Founder rewards as well.

If you wanted to get the game at a discounted price and get the Early Founder rewards, send me a message and then I could gift you a special Founder copy of the game that also includes alpha/beta access. I’m trying to get enough referrals to get Developer access so I can try to contribute to the game.

It is a spiritual successor to the Ultima series, known for immersive virtual worlds and great stories. The Ultima games were the first ever to bring shades of morality in their games for example.

You can pre-order the game for $45 right now, and there is no monthly fee for online. But they're doing a special promotion right now, where the original Founders (people who backed early in the original Kickstarter) can gift a copy of the game to someone else for $40, and the recipient also receives all the early Founder rewards as well.

The person sending the gift gets referral rewards as well. So I'm looking for anyone who is interested. I can't afford to just buy $40 copies for tons of people, but if anyone is interested in playing the game, they could PayPal me $40 and then I can gift them a special Founder copy of the game.

1. Osama Bin Laden had no resources and the attack was low-tech.

Terrorist attacks don't need massive technology. Bin Laden had a massive network and hundreds of millions of dollars at his disposal. And he already orchestrated other terrorist attacks against the United States that are not in doubt. al-Qaeda had identified the WTC as a target previously in 1993. He had both motive and means. Most importantly, he publicly took credit.

2. There is no way the terrorists could have pulled off the attack because that is just silly

We have phone records of passengers where they discuss watching the attack in real time. So we know what happened. And the phone recordings prove that people watched it rather than get involved and try to stop the terrorists on 3 of the 4 flights. Overcoming pilots with sheer numbers, surprise and weapons is not as implausible as you make it sound.

The Pentagon crash required skilled piloting, but they didn't hit it perfectly or where they wanted. He wasn't perfectly level with the ground. Please don't lie.

They had access to flight simulators, and professional flight training previously. They prepared for that specific scenario and practiced it. Again, not as implausible as you make it sound.

Most importantly, we have photographs, flight recorders and witnesses. We know it happened. But it is always fun to say "that's crazy, it couldn't have happened because it seems unlikely!"

3. If Rumsfeld wanted to hide the fact that the Pentagon couldn't account for money, while hold a press conference and announce that very thing?

4. You suggest it is weird that people pointed to Osama Bin Laden. It wasn't like he was currently #1 on America's Most Wanted list, and an admitted terrorist who attacked the US multiple times previously, including the WTC. Oh wait, that was the case. And Al Qaeda quickly took credit for the attacks.

5. The passport does seem like an implausible coincidence. But implausible coincidences aren't proof of conspiracy. You're suggesting all the evidence for the hijackers was planted at once, when that isn't the case. The airport and airlines had their security footage of the hijackers. People on the planes also reported the incident in real time on phones.

6. You suggest only conspiracy theorists wanted an investigation, and that it wouldn't have happened otherwise. Congress demanded the 9/11 Commission. Independent investigations were also ordered by people all over the globe. But let's pretend no one really looked into this, and swept it under the rug. 

7. The Commission was not under funded from their initial request. When the group asked for an additional $11 million beyond their initial budget, they were given an extra $9 million. Part of the reason they weren't given unlimited funding is that they had run late and grown past the initial scope. People were antsy for results and they didn't want the Commission to delay further. Delay is also somewhat a misleading word. It isn't like the Commission started late and sat on their hands. They went beyond their initial scope and did MORE investigation than originally planned, so they finished late. The odd thing is that the final report blamed the US government for not doing enough to prevent this. If the US federal government perpetuated the attacks in a conspiracy, would they investigate themselves and then blame themselves?

8. The report didn't focus on WTC7 primarily because it wasn't targeted by explosives, and only collapsed after burning for 7 hours. There is nothing extraordinary here. That isn't to say no one looked into it. NIST examined it at length and published a report proving it collapsed due to that fire.

9. The 9/11 Commission did mention training exercises. That is part of how they slammed the intelligence community for not predicting and prevening a scenario they literally did training exercises on. Please stop lying.

10. Funding of the attacks was in fact huge as everyone knows. But that was kept out of the public report with good reason. Immediately after 9/11, Bush urged Americans not to jump to conclusions, and said we needed to investigate and follow the money. A large portion of the Patriot Act deals with money laundering. A large part of the war on terror was freezing funds of terrorist organizations. It isn't that no one traced the money, but rather we didn't want a public report handed to criminals on what we knew of them so far because it was an on-going effort to stop them. It is generally not a smart move to tip off terrorists you're actively opposing.

11. NIST's data was leaked in full and gone over by conspiracy theorists. Nothing suspicious was found. I love how you insist that no one investigated WTC7, then admit that NIST modelled how the collapse occured. This doesn't even make sense if the government knew they orchestrated it. Why would they investigate such a thing if they were part of the conspiracy? That being said, you don't tell the public on how best to destroy buildings because that does in fact jeapoardize public safety. That's common sense.

12. Barry Jennings said in 2001 that he heard explosions. This is one of the only pieces of "evidence" conspiracy theorists have, the opinion of one person. The problem is that this is easily explained away. Elevators in the buildings fell from up to 110 stories and slammed into the ground with great force, explaining the witnesses who thought they heard explosions at ground level. No one has claimed he doesn't exist or tried to surpress him. He talked to anyone and everyone. As evidence came out over time, he changed his opinion.

In an interview with the BBC, he said he no longer believed there was a controlled explosion, and that he accepted the official story. He was free to talk to anyone he wanted for 7 years.

In 2008, he fell ill. He was hospitalized and eventually died. Conspiracy theorists say that anyone who dares speak up is murdered. In reality, countless "truthers" speak up all the time with nothing happening to them. Jennings certainly wasn't murdered or silenced. Nor did he die believing in any conspiracy himself.

13. When Russia invaded Afghanistan, they failed to navigate the caves and mountains as well as local rebels who knew the area well. You make it seem like fucking magic that somehow Osama Bin Laden was able to get out of Afghanistan. And literally for years and years it was publicly speculated by media pundits and military members that Osama Bin Laden was in Pakistan. It wasn't like we had no idea where he was at all. The problem is that Pakistan was in the middle of their own civil conflict, and they refused to allow American troops on their soil. He couldn't occupy Pakistan at length to search for him. Nor could we expect their cooperation. We could only go into Pakistan if we were 100% confident we knew exactly where he was at that moment, could get him quickly, and could do so without also getting in another war in Pakistan.

Given that Osama Bin Laden hated the US and got messages out, if he was innocent and this was a government run conspiracy, wouldn't he have hurt us more by telling the truth rather that taking credit for the attacks?

14. The attack was broadcast to key political and military leaders. Of course it was recorded. That being said, it is unlikely we'll ever see it. Releasing a grisly video of someone getting shot serves no purpose that benefit us, and could only incite hatred. Likewise, not disposing of the body would only incite zealots for descrating the body. 

15. The government has never gone after truthers, harassed them, or told people not to ask questions. But half of your video was outright lies that you knew were lies.

They got all upset when it was mentioned that Chow dogs bite more people than any other breed and they call it bullshit. That is statistically accurate, and as a kid, I  had half my face ripped off by a Chow.

Obviously not every one is vicious, but statistically they are the most vicious breed.
