at first I thought the "what I totally didn't just nearly punch that guy's head off" look but then came the guy running in with the worst dive ever.

So apparently the dude in the red, Barry Hall, was a boxer before getting into football... so that first guy I don't think was acting it up at all. Not sure which of apparently many incidents this was, but Hall apparently broke a winger's jaw in 3 places in one particular incident.

the second dude, however, I think must have just come from a career in soccer.

I wonder if any of the 787s on order have been cancelled in the wake of these problems.


Not sure abut that. I know the 747 still sells pretty well as it was upgraded recently. And its not the first time a plane has been plagued by issues, like the DC-10. Thing is, the reason why the dc-10 had a bad reputation in its early years is that it actually had a fatal accident thanks to a bad door design.

Nowadays, the dc-10 has a comparable safety record to other planes seen as pretty safe, like the 757.

What the 787 has in its favor is that there has not been any loss of life due to its problems.

Now, it should also be noted that part of the problem of the 787 is the information age we live in, in which news travel across the globe in seconds and quickly becomes memetic as it spreads across the people connected to the internet.


In related news, British Airways has taken over its first Airbus A380 and it didn't set even a little bit on fire.


Also, critting a TV with Wings and Feather stacked up and the T15 4set procced is fun :D

563k TV crit, with 230k Hand of Light damage.

From what I heard that was a slight mistranslation. What was said was IF they added a fourth type of role it would be based on buffs. However if would be quite difficult to add and not very likely to happen.

Does Microsoft still insist on only selling Surface online and in Microsoft stores (which don't exist in most places)?

Could be worse. Could have sold 160K Wii Us in the last quarter.

I read this and it finally occured to me that the WiiU is the Dreamcast. It even has a screen in the controller!

My workplace's intranet has comments and voting on articles allowed. If you clear your cache you can vote again. Voting is between 1-5 and what infuriates me is it seems to round up. So no hope in hell of an article ever being rated below 2 as the submitter or whoever/whatever it is about normally votes 5 on it straight away.

Just re-read my lastest app, and despite almost never touching HCs I feel like a gigantic badass with the shit I've pulled in all these years...

I think I might get attention with this one (whisp me if you're curious :-p)

On our intranet, we had some putz attempt to rig a vote by voting 6000 times.. in a company with ~3750 employees.. like we wouldn't notice.. :roll:

I enjoyed turning him over to the security team.. :D
