Yeah, I agree. Anachronox was a true masterpiece... I would gladly support the sequel on the kickstarter if it would be directed by its author)

I'm not really sure what to think about this article. As a working and professional female, I have been treated on both sides of the spectrum. I have been treated with the utmost respect and equality by my male counterparts, and I have worked on team where I was belittled, underestimated, and objectified by male couterparts. The thing is, not once in my life have I ever felt disadvantaged because of my gender, and the fact that people tend to stereotype working women this way is more offensive than anything a man has ever done to me on the job. The saddest part is women seem to propogate this idea just as much if not more than men. The fact is life is not fair for anyone all of the time. Instead of saying all of society has it bad, why not look around you? maybe you just happen to be stuck with a particular brand of asshole. You have the power to change your situation - whether you are being confronted with a misogynist, a racist, or just struggling with your own insecurities. I'm just tired of seeing all of these semi-femenist posts lableing the whole of society as being insensitive and objectifying. How many people would link my success or capability to my ability to look perfect? In my experience, not a single one - and the proof is I have enjoyed moderate success in my line of work, and I never wear makeup or fancy clothes. Hell some days I don't even brush my hair. Sure, some jobs have been better than others, but i never equated a job failure or disadvantage wholly to my gender. Everything is always circumstantial. Christopher points out something equally important - and its a discussion my husband and i have had many times. Yes, women have some shitty circumstances to face - but so do men, its just a different type of hardship. Life is not fair. Instead of writing an accusatory blog post that offers no solution to what you complain about, how about focusing on how you, yourself, can be a better person and rise above the pettyness you complain about. Why not realize that you may not have met the right guy for you, or found the right coworkers- instead of saying everyone in society is your problem. Or, at least that is what I would suggest to this particular blog writer. It's the same problem i have with commentators that say everyone on welfare is lazy or everyone fighting for planned parenthood support is an athiest whore.

The initial name for the BFG 9000 was the BFG 2704. Later used as the year Terminal Velocity was set in. #gametrivia #doom #terminalvelocity

I think Carmack liked the "cheesy Ronco product" joke better than the "ridiculously advanced tech numbering" joke.

Sci-fi fans, chalk off another one.
 
Science fiction to become science reality?
It might the stuff of science fiction dreams, but a Japanese construction company has announced that it will have built a working space elevator by 2050.

+Eric Cheng, Why would they climb when they could just push the "Down" button? Save the energy for the devastation, I say. ;)

It's sad to see them shutdown, but I'm happy that they aren't staying a float by using patent lawsuits. Companies should provide a service, adapt to that service and close doors when no longer needed.
