    Well they also would have got to save a ton on server infrastructure and the like. Also the fact that almost everyone I've personally talked to who has an interest in the game plans to either play it singleplayer, or play through one or two storylines with a core group of friends. No one I've talked to really cares about the end game and plan to try to, if possible, see all the story content they want to before they have to pay any sub fees. But that's just people I've talked to myself.

    This is how it is for me in the US. You can still get written perscriptions but much more common at least with my doctor is letting him know what pharmacy you use and it's all done electronically. I don't even have to show ID.

    Well like Daxon said the universe is a big place. But on the other hand, my more favored argument is:

    Regarding us not having been visited. Why do people always assume that if there are a lot of alien races - they are always thought of as much more advanced than us. Why does nobody consider that maybe we are the top doggs of technology.

    They ask, like, birth date. I think it's probably because I've never gotten a prescription for a controlled substance.

    Fouet is one of those "has no strong sounds" things that you have to just let flop out of your mouth, and it sounds like a dozen other words. Rouleau à pâtisserie is less of a pain admittedly, although rouleau which ties up my tongue for some reason.

I know the law is much stricter with narcotics (adderall, oxycontin, etc), but from working in pharmacies I know that the pharmacist has a lot of leeway in general as far as whether they want to accept or dispense a given script.

    i believe it's my insurance that refuses to pony up which i guess makes more sense

    It's far fetched that we've never been visited by aliens?

    The only really plausible alien life they may have made it to earth are really simple organisms on meteors that have impacted earth.

    Wasn't there some stuff about finding some meteor in Antarctica that was frozen and maybe had some really basic non-earth life on it? I remember hearing about that forever ago. Can't remember for the life of me if it turned out to be real or not.

  • HonkHonk Registered User, __BANNED USERS regular
    Every argument of that sort fails because no variable needed is known.

    Cultures we can't understand = maybe we are an exception that we at all care whether there is life elsewhere in the universe.
    Technology = maybe we are advanced but other life isn't. I think there is life in the universe but there is no reason at all to presume we are the stone age people compared to them.
    Discovering life across the vast spaces we're talking about is admittedly pretty fucking difficult.

    The list goes on.

    if aliens were advanced enough to travel here, why would you assume we'd be able to kill them

    it seems staggeringly unlikely that another species could be at the exact point in their development where they could travel vast distances and arrive not-dead, but not so far that defending themselves wouldn't be trivially easy

    No, I mean that the most likely scenario I see is that any extraterrestrial biological sapient entity that's made direct contact with humans (Direct contact meaning openly approaching non-debilitated or incapacitated humans) has probably been destroyed or captured.
