    Pardon me, are we being eco-friendly by recycling cheese grater tips?

      Intentional dupe. I just wanted to complain about it again. Thanks for paying attention, though. 🙂

      I just started downloading my copy

      I didn’t even install the free copy that came with my GPU. I heard the game was dlc upon dlc. Is that true?

        I personally don’t play it but AFAIK from a scale of one to Paradox, it’s about a four. Couple of big expansions that have actual story and playable content, plus some minor odds and ends. It’s probably a big deal for PvP but for just messing around with the story and regular content the base game should be okay.

    This video from the “Bend your brain” link has me flummoxed.

      I’ve seen that illusion before and it flummoxed me then and now.

        Thanks for that link. I had figured out that the tops of the cylinders were wavy, but I hadn’t grokked the reality behind the intersecting vs. non-intersecting part.

      Your use of “flummoxed” has me flummoxed.

      You can play with the model by going here:
      [url<]https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1655999[/url<] Click on one of the blue models, then click on Thingiview. Then you can rotate the model around. If you have a 3D printer, you can make one.

      Agreed. +1 for science; -1 for mountain spirits

    Deep thoughts of the guy in that photo: Why oh why did I remember my $5,000 camera but forget my $30 USB keyboard when my MacBook’s decided to fail!

      I think his drone became self-aware and started taunting him from above.

        Continuing from yesterday, the drone just opened the door, flew in, and is about to drop a heavy object on his head.

        And then successfully sue him for emotional distress.

      That’s an ≈$800 (when new, two to five years ago) EOS 70D with a $125 EF 50mm f/1.8 lens.

      Rollin down the street, smokin TIM paste, sippin on shillin juice
      Laid back (with my mind on my margins and my margins on my mind)

        Better go easy on that shillin’ juice… I hear it will give you an STD.
