We lived through the convergence, the comet and 2012. What's the new apocalypse date we're supposed to worry about?

I've been saying this for over a decade. Four letters… starts with a C…

"Cult"

…and an apocalypse cult at that.
The Islamic State is no mere collection of psychopaths. It is a religious group with carefully considered beliefs, among them that it is a key agent of the coming apocalypse. Here’s what that means for its strategy—and for how to stop it.

Aren't all Abrahamic religions effectively death/apocalypse cults? At least Judaism is happy to just wait around for the end, the other two seem eager to invoke it.

I thought I was familiar with a lot of goofball theories, but I've never even heard of this one, featuring a brown dwarf star above the North Pole of Earth eventually becoming Saturn. I feel dumber just having read it.

So naturally, I'm sharing it with you all…
Saturn and the rise of the 'GODS' industry – the hidden link between global cataclysms, sex magick-blood rituals and guns, oil, drugs and slavery. The literal and physical journey the planet Saturn has taken from being a brown dwarf star and Earth's original sun to its subsequent banishment to ...

I'd also like to point out a classic blatant contradiction in modern cosmology by eminent critic Tom Van Flandern, with regards to the speed of gravity.

I snapshotted it here ...

Slightly confusing without a mathematical background, but he states it eloquently.  And besides this, he claims that anybody has the ability to validate this claim for themselves through simulation.  It would be a fantastic show to see somebody do just that, if there is somebody here who is fluent in such tools ...

PUEBLO, Colorado (AP) — The United States is about to begin destroying its largest remaining stockpile of chemical-laden artillery shells, marking a milestone in the global campaign to eradicate a debilitating weapon that still creeps into modern wars.

The recent +One Page Dungeon Contest 2015 announcement contains a link to an interview "if you would like to see an example of how the judges cast their votes". And… man. Huge chunks of the "top 3 things you were looking for" answers are things that are, at best, totally useless to me. One of them even runs directly counter to the stated guidelines of the contest.

Grah. Help me out here. A few days ago, someone posted a document that listed the abilities most used by the specialties in Class Warfare. I thought it was in this community, but maybe not. Anyone know where to find it?

70,000 years ago, a red dwarf star and gravitationally bound brown dwarf passed at high speed through the Oort Cloud. 70,000 years ago, homo sapiens migrate out of Africa.

Volcanic eruptions... there's nothing short of weather balloons responsible for that many coverups.

Finally found the simple OS X application I was thinking about writing. It provides a window which mirrors a second display, and anything you drop on the window shows up on the second display, without revealing what is on your primary screen. Simple idea.

Note that, in modern OS X versions, you can go into System Preferences ⇒ Displays and set up AirPlay destinations to work as secondary monitors.
Present on any display connected to your Mac. • Drag-and-drop simplicity. • Videos playback controls are kept on the main window so they don't show on the presentation display. • Option to automatically present when the item is dropped. • Supports presenting on single-display systems ...

Slaves and enthralled monsters still cost you (food, time, magical reagents, lost opportunities of doing something else with that effort).

Honestly, though, in most D&D rule sets, the most cost effective way to build dungeons is by dominating a beholder or some other creature with at-will disintegration. That, however, argues that dungeons should be even larger, as amortizing the cost of such domination demands that you build as much as you can with the time you have.

(It also means that beholder lairs are nightmare traps of long vertical shafts.)

It spoke to me in the right way, at the right time, preventing me from giving up gaming. At the same time, it also made me realize that I had let another game (not mentioned in this list) steal time from me without benefit to me, just like I had with Shadowrun before. Also, it wound up making me learn a lot more about Pages, InDesign and XSLT, which has proved useful since.
