    Obviously, the government figured out they can make people in the UK hate Unions by triggering a Petrol Panic in claiming the Unions will cause one. Of course there is no strike, so the government should be eating the blowback on this shit.

    I think they are at present. Even Sky is hating on them
    I can deal with that.

    The UK seem less able to hand-wave reality away in situations like this, than across the pond here in the states.

    Here FOXNEWS would have 20 million conspiracy theorists convinced that Unions are at fault no matter what actually happened, and we will probably see exactly that in the coming days and weeks of FOX coverage of the Great Petrol Panic of 2012.

    Edit: Surely this will magically raise prices here in the states too, don't you think [chat]?

    why? wtf? are some pipelines down or is this just a panic?

    The union that has most tanker drivers as members voted for strike action over pay and conditions.

    Note that there isn't any strike yet, nor is one yet planned, but government ministers have been in the media talking about how people should be filling jerry cans.

    What's particularly funny is that there are a load of regulations surrounding how petrol can be stored (outside of a vehicle fuel tank) and storing fuel in most domestic garages in 20 litre jerry cans is probably illegal in most cases.

    Also, I finished up ME2 last night again, because I wanted the best ending, and I have to say that the ending isn't anywhere near as bad as I remember it being. It's actually very good, other than...
    The Terminator fight, which is retarded. However, the Saren fight wasn't very good at the end of ME1, either, and that game had one of the best last levels of all-time. I actually really enjoyed the end of ME2 this time through; I think it is a great payoff, that makes it seem like what you did in the rest of the game really mattered. So, while it wasn't as good as the ending to ME1, I think that's an unfair bar to expect it to meet. It's pretty great.

    I've spent a lot of time thinking about the ending to ME2, especially since I just replayed the end as well. I think it was pretty good.

    (All ME2 spoilers. No ME3.)
    There was a lot of cinematic action immediately before the collector base and immediately after, and in between each combat section. You got to see the results of your choices very viscerally, and the transitions between interactivity and cinematic were nearly seamless, which I appreciate.

    I liked the mechanic of picking crewmates to perform different tasks based on their skills. It evoked a real feeling of leadership for me. I also liked how they each had their own spin on the dialogue for each section. I felt like it made the crew really come alive.

    I liked how you could choose different lines for your inspirational speech at the end.

    I agree with you that the reaper-baby boss fight felt pretty contrived. I'm willing to overlook that because the rest of it was so good.

    Also, if you're playing a Renegade shepard and you destroy the collector base, Shepard has one of the best lines in the trilogy.

    Illusive Man: Shepard, you're making it a habit of costing me more than just time and money.
    Shepard: I'm sorry, I'm having trouble hearing you. I'm getting a lot of bullshit on this line.

    Isn't a lot of housing across the pond primarily cement anyway, my understanding was that using cement was the preferred method post WW2 so all the rebuilding was done that way.

    Really the only problem with it is that the design of it is corny. I don't really have an issue with the reveals.
    I find the concept of fighting a Reaper with squad-level weapons to be pretty stupid, and I think it takes away a lot from the Reapers as a villain.
    eh, it was just the reaper core and it was in an extremely early stage of construction

    no worse than what you did on the IFF mission

    Then we systematically purchase every single possible permutation of the mega millions lottery numbers.

    Then we split the winnings based on how much you put in.

    Every single person who puts in money gets a ~1.4x guaranteed instant return on their investment.

    Unless someone else also picks a winning series of numbers.

    You'd have to factor in all the of the lesser prizes too. But yeah. Still nowhere near a 1:1 return guarantee
    The jackpot prize is the jackpot; they pay the other prizes out of a different pool, I believe.

    The law on storing fuel isn't particularly onerous, incidentally. From memory I think it just needs to be a certain distance (like a few metres, not miles away) from dwellings or roads, have something to prevent any spillage from spreading, and there's usually a requirement that the local authority be notified (mostly so that they can add it to the fire brigade's map of places to treat with particular caution).

    Yeah, I agree with all of that. ME2 ending spoilers:
    I also like when you just use the normal, non-Renegade non-Paragon response to that line from the Illusive Man; it's something like "Listen, you brought me back to save the universe, and I'm going to do it my way, without giving up the soul of our species."

    And that last cinematic with Joker flying in and shooting the Collectors from the open doorway of the Normandy is just action-movie awesome.

    This is horrifying: democracynow.org/2012/3/29/killed_at_home_white_plains_ny

    Old guy's medic-alert bracelet goes off accidentally, police come to his house, break down his door, taser him, and then kill him.

    Like

    He was 68

    the officers are claiming self defence.

    Why would they have all of that equipment on a medic-alert bracelet call? Like, what's the thought process here? "Old guy might be having a heart attack, we'd better bring the riot gear!"

    Lots of PDs are getting more militarized due to no-knocks/breech entry situations being more common, and they figured 'we've got it we might as well keep it in the truck'?

    Holy Christ!!

    what the fuck is wrong with law enforcement these days?
    They are basically completely in control of every aspect of our legal system.

    And absolute power corrupts absolutely.
    Right, but,

    THEY KNOCKED HIM OUT WITH A TASER AND THEN SHOT HIM!!!!
    Did they shout "he's comin' right for us!" first?

    Not that it matters. Just look at Mehserle and the BART execution; he got off with time served. He's probably working as a cop in some other city, now.

    poor excuses

    but my laziness was compounded by the fact that i've been eating like shit for the last few months, after falling off the healthy eating wagon hard for whatever reason

    so all that together is just

    Skyrim made me flabby all over. Skyrim and being 30 years old is probably more accurate.
    Being 30 is the fucking worst.
    33 is worse. I promise.

    Haha, you're all old.

    You guys are going to die before the singularity.

    So will we Winky, so will we.

    GUYS GUYS I HAVE A PLAN:

    Everyone on the forums empties their life savings accounts into a pool until we have $176 million.

    Then we systematically purchase every single possible permutation of the mega millions lottery numbers.

    Then we split the winnings based on how much you put in.

    Every single person who puts in money gets a ~1.4x guaranteed instant return on their investment.

    forget the lottery
    lets do a forumwide tontine

    AAAAA!!! PLAAAYGUUU!!!!
