    [–] Questions about Races Mayan_Fist 4 points ago * (lasted edited 21 days ago) in SongsOfTheEons

    That’s awesome! I’m hyped that something similar to the colonization of the New World can happen(kind of like Warhammer Fantasy), though I was thinking something more like the colonization of the New World and Oceania by prehistoric human settlers, where the first settlers had to deal with wildlife like megafauna (such as mammoths, giant sloths, moas, and giant wombats) and new predators (such as short-faced bears, jaguars, marsupial lions, and the Haast’s Eagle). In a case such as this, could you instead have exotic wildlife and hostile predators that new settlers will have to face?

    [–] Stellaris Dev Diary #131 - MegaCorporations Mayan_Fist 15 points ago in paradoxplaza

    One of the new Megacorp civics is called “Indentured Assets,” and the devs hinted that it would be possible to build non-robot pops. So I definitely see someone making Tyrell Corp. once the expansion and the update comes out.

    [–] [Death Note] Could I kill Wilson from Home Improvement with the Death Note? Mayan_Fist 1 points ago in AskScienceFiction

    Wilson (full name Wilson Wilson Jr.) only shows half of his face at a time. Would picturing the top half of his face be enough to use the death note? Several times on Home Improvement, they showed the bottom half of his face, obscuring the top. Would stitching them together in my mind work?

    No, that won’t work at all. In order for the Death Note to function, you must have seen more than half of that person’s face. If all you’ve seen of this guy is the top of his face, that means that you need to see the other half as well.

    [–] World Customization Screen, with numerous pages of tuneable variables Mayan_Fist 3 points ago in SongsOfTheEons

    Will worlds also be able to have geological features like atolls and coral reefs?

    [–] Respect Colonel H. Stinkmeaner (The Boondocks) Mayan_Fist 2 points ago in respectthreads

    I think Base Stinkmeaner got retconned into having the skills of Ghost Stinkmeaner, since all members of the Hateocracy were as skilled and badass in combat as he was.

    [–] Watch the US stall on climate change for 12 years - Vox Mayan_Fist 1 points ago in Futurology

    You’re, uh, conflating the rest of humanity with a specific subset of people living in the United States. The existence of climate change is largely accepted by other countries; it’s only in the United States that it has become politicized and turned into a bi-partisan issue.

    [–] So uh synthetic dawn can fire in game Mayan_Fist 7 points ago in eu4

    Man, it would be cool if they got a huge bonus to cultural assimilation, in order to simulate the attitudes of the Determined Exterminators in Stellaris.

    [–] Cryptic hint on Stellaris Twitter. Mayan_Fist 23 points ago in Stellaris

    polar bears in LeGuin

    Yes please.

    [–] How To See Past Lives & Why Its Important Mayan_Fist 2 points ago in theravada

    Definitely limit your interactions with more active dharma forums if you can. I tend to find that there’s a lot of actual self-aggrandizing in those places, and it tends to affect one’s view of the practice.

    [–] Bushmaster (MCU) vs. Luv (Blade Runner 2049) Mayan_Fist 1 points ago in whowouldwin

    Good points, but I think that Luv and K were around the same level, at least strength-wise and durability-wise. She did beat him the first time when they fought in Vegas. K also only won that final fight because he got the drop on her; when they fought out in the open next to the Sea Wall, she beat him again in H2H. I feel that this match up would be better because she's more skilled in H2H than K, and because she's got a similar style to Bushmaster.

    [–] After reading the shooting script of 2049... Mayan_Fist 3 points ago in bladerunner

    Yeah. They kind of teased it by showing the huge neon valleys in the streets and some well-lit megastructures reminiscent of the first movie in one shot but the story didn’t really focus on those.

    [–] Naomi Osaka becomes the first Japanese women to win a Grand Slam in Tennis, defeating Serena Williams in the US Open Mayan_Fist 8 points ago in worldnews

    You know, hearing Serena say that “her first US Open win wasn’t like this” during the ceremony makes me think that she purposely threw a tantrum and made this whole controversy in order to steal the joy of victory from Osaka.

    Not only did she goad the crowd into booing during the ceremony, but she also made the match about herself through her antics, taking attention away from Osaka’s victory.

    I think it’s safe to say that my opinion of Serena has changed after this match.

    [–] Need help identifying picture Mayan_Fist 2 points ago in Buddhism

    Looks like a Wayang shadow puppet.
