    Yeah, I wrote the code, did the arts, etc. I've been learning Javascript, HTML5 canvas, and all the related technologies like Web Audio to see how feasible real games would be in the browser. Turns out pretty feasible.

    They look/sound great!

    Alice In Chains tonight? The show rained out

    The Fray, The fucking Fray, waited out the rain and finished their set being all you guys are amazing for sticking around for the rain to pass.

    Alice In Chains called it over 45 minutes into their set.

    In their defense it wasn't really safe for them to be on stage once the rain and wind picked up

    But they didn't even attempt to hang around to see if the rain would pass, they just flat out told the promoters "tell them it's over, we're out" and bailed.

    why not a trabant

    A couple of reasons:

    1. That two stroke engine is gonna die after 8 hours.
    2. Import costs bring them way above the $500 limit.
    3. To be legally imported they have to be more then 25 years old to get a DoT safety waiver. No race marshal is gonna sign off on that.

    My favorite badass anime lady is still Youko from 12 Kingdoms. She goes from super super lame to badass.

    Basically gets sucked into a "schoolgirl enters a magical alternate world of adventure!" story

    Except in her universe there's no charming prince to save her, and if you wander around the woods in your stupid schoolgirl skirt freezing to death is a real possibility.

    Within like the first 4 episodes she nearly dies of exposure, gets punched in the face by superstitious peasants, is stabbed through a hand, and chewed on by wild dogs.

    by ep 40 she's just hard as fuck and fightin' in sieges 'n shit

    she's great

    The explanation for this gap is simple. In Britain, guns are rare. Only specialist firearms officers carry them; and criminals rarely have access to them. The last time a British police officer was killed by a firearm on duty was in 2012, in a brutal case in Manchester. The annual number of murders by shooting is typically less than 50. Police shootings are enormously controversial. The shooting of Mark Duggan, a known gangster, which in 2011 started riots across London, led to a fiercely debated inquest. Last month, a police officer was charged with murder over a shooting in 2005. The reputation of the Metropolitan Police’s armed officers is still barely recovering from the fatal shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes, an innocent Brazilian, in the wake of the 7/7 terrorist bombings in London.

    In America, by contrast, it is hardly surprising that cops resort to their weapons more frequently. In 2013, 30 cops were shot and killed—just a fraction of the 9,000 or so murders using guns that happen each year. Add to that a hyper-militarised police culture and a deep history of racial strife and you have the reason why so many civilians are shot by police officers. Unless America can either reduce its colossal gun ownership rates or fix its deep social problems, shootings of civilians by police—justified or not—seem sure to continue.

    indeed, looking at a synopsis, it seems that you could remove the schoolgirl and have a naive sheltered princess rise unexpectedly into the line of succession

    idk, that particular element seems extraneous, save for the bit where it is a grimdark response to an earlier hit. not that this is a bad thing
