My favorite find from the previous discussions is this movie poster, created by /u/Your_Post_As_A_Movie.

It seems to always be posted with bad titles, but today's repost is probably even worse than the others.

They've uploaded a copy of the beta to the "goodies" section, accessible from the GOG website. If you go onto your collection, you should find it. For me at least, however, the version they uploaded suffers from the bug that only allows LAN play.

So, my wife (on Steam) and I (on GOG linux) played together one night, and it worked great!

But then the next night, when we tried to join, we got an error for version mismatch. It looks like Steam updated to v1.3.24 and GOG is still at 1.3.23. There's no way in Steam to go back to a previous version, or even to tell it not to update!

We decided to wait 24 hours. It's been 24 hours, and the GOG version is still behind. So, it seems that there are still some issues.

The official forums say that 1.3.24 was released to both Steam and GOG on July 10 (3 days ago), so I wonder what happened.

I think I need to post in the forums there, but I just thought I'd post here, because this is what I found first!

Those things are dangerous actually. I was using mine completely normally. Tried to choke up with my hands when they were slipping from sweat; the whole thing came off and me with it. I hit the floor head first because of my launch angle. Ended up with a nasty concussion but probably could have broken my neck. Nobody was home.

Stay away from these.

I came into the discussion looking for tips on preventing this from happening.

So far, I haven't had any problems with mine. I can't imagine how it would ever come loose, but I also haven't ever tried adjusting my grip like that.

I've always thought that they are safe, provided you don't shift your weight much. The gif here confuses me, because I don't see what he did wrong. I'm guessing it isn't installed correctly.

There are types that just hang on the door frame- no hardware to keep it stationary and are prone to falling if you shift around too much while using them. There are others that have hardware that the bar will slide into- but then there are permanently installed in your doorway. Much more stable though.

This has to be the explanation.

Mine has lots of hardware on the backside of the frame. It looks like his is very different than mine.

Your submission has been removed because a submission about this topic has already been made.

Why? How would a moon base help with a Mars colony?

see more

Short answer: ISRU

Longer answer:

Getting to mars takes a lot of fuel.

The delta-V for getting stuff from sea level to HEO is quite high. If hydrogen can be mined from the moon and converted to fuel there, then it could greatly reduce the cost of getting people to (and back from) Mars.

This mission was scrapped just 6 months ago, but something else like it could take its place. If you search for more articles about that mission, you'll probably find more information than you need on the topic.

In the past, we have locked or removed threads, and we reserve the right to do so, if we are unable to keep the discussion here civil.

How can you possibly separate politics from something like this?

We can't, at least not 100%. We are removing posts that are more about politics than they are about space.

If you have seen too much politics today and are worried that this topic may make you upset, I'm sorry. We don't have the time to make a fully sanitized version of the topic (with no politics at all).

Wtf I’m Canadian and live in Australia and that’s not remotely accurate. People talk in height in cm and weight in kilos, lot sizes in m2. Babies in kilos.

Source: recently bought a house, partner is a doctor and also had several friends recently have kids.

see more

I was watching "Grand Designs: Australia" on Netflix, and they referred to the size of a house as "40 squares". Do you have any idea what that means? It was a small house, but bigger than 40 square meters. It's episode 1, if anyone else wants to see it.

In the original Grand Designs (British), they frequently give sizes in both square meters and square feet. It's a bit annoying, but at least they always are clear about which system they are using!

As an American, I'm honestly jealous of people living in countries that never have to deal with the Imperial system.

2 points · 5 days ago

Squares is "basically" square metres but divided by ten. Almost. I have just built a 170m2 house, which I refer to as 17 squares. The house on grand designs would've been about 400m2 but it isn't exact as far as I know!

I think Australia's use of metric VS imperial probably changes depending on where you live as well. Country folk seem to find it harder to adapt than those in the city. I generally refer to babies in kg but height can go both ways. My folks use a lot more imperial though.

Very interesting, I've never heard this usage before!

EDIT: 1 square is 100 square feet. So it is close to what you said. That article says it is used in the construction field in the U.S., but I've never heard it before. It seems to be used far more in Australia than the U.S.

Fat old REPOST

2 points · 6 days ago

Yep, it was posted earlier this week with a much longer title. It was something like:

Saving the life of one dog doesn't make much difference in the world, but it makes a world of difference for that one dog

Searching for "one dog" should find it, but I came up empty. So, the mods probably removed it for being a repost.

Karmadecay would find it, if this OP hadn't used a v.redd.it link.

EDIT: found it. I was remarkably close with the title, and my guess about why it was removed was correct! I'm sure everyone hates me now.

And I get downvoted for calling it out:/

see more

Yep, that's how Reddit works. Sometimes if you can call it out in a witty way, or if lots and lots of people remember the previous one, then you can end up positive. Positive or negative, though, you are helping.

I think it helps far more if you can provide a link to the previous one, so I always try to do that.

Of course, if you really want to help, you'll click "report", and then give the link to the old repost in the "Other" field. Mods here remove reposts whenever they get reported properly. Not all subreddits are as good as /r/gifs.

Any idea if the Sadiq Khan balloon is a go as well? I'm really looking forward to dueling babies in the sky.

It looks like it is highly likely, as it had 40,000 of the 50,000 target when that article was written.

It won't be flying the same day, though. It would be some time in August.

I haven't watched the whole video (just the synopsis at the beginning before the talk begins), but it states that anti-matter and matter obey the exact same rules.

I thought that had been thoroughly debunked. Is this video pre-2013?

What confuses me most is that the most recent repost was by the same OP!! If you are going to spam reposts for karma, why do you keep using the same picture?

This is what worries me about their plan to train these boys to cave dive. Cave diving is inherently dangerous even for experts. Most places wont let you become cave diving certified until you're 18 because of the difficulties. These boys are 11 or 12, and most do not know how to swim. I'm not a religious man, but I am praying for a better solution to get these boys and their coach home safely

I'm pretty sure that there is only one other solution, and that is to wait until the rainy season is over.

Of the two solutions, I don't think that one is obviously better than the other, but I do think it is obvious that there is not a third solution.

EDIT: Yes, I'm completely wrong. Here's an article talking about a third solution:

If Trinity does for forward with the case, I'm sure they would get a lot of internet support. There are lots of people upset with how much Lucas Films has sued everyone else.

Edit: The Wikipedia page says that "Officials from Trinity College Library decided not to take any legal action." The weird thing is that Wikipedia gives 2 footnotes for that statement, and both of those sources say that the college is considering suing.

I think the footnotes are on the wrong statement. Both of those links say that a spokesperson for Lucas say that the two have no connection, which was the previous statement in Wikipedia. So, the statement that the college has decided against taking action is unsourced.

If only there was some way to change a Wikipedia page....

Somehow this scares me a little

Steps:

  • http://www.imgops.com
  • Enter URL of image, and hit enter
  • Middle-click on "Google", "Reddit", and "Yandex" to open in 3 separate tabs
  • Look at the Google tab, it shows tweets with the image, but nothing useful. close it.
  • Check the Reddit (karmadecay) tab. Nothing. Close it.
  • Check Yandex (Russian image search). No Reddit discussions come up, but a few Russian aggregators manage to get a reddit username.
  • Use Reddit to view that user's history. Bingo.

Edit: I'm sure I'm going to get lots of people replying with messages about how I need to get a life, or a girlfriend or something like that. In my defense, this doesn't really take very long, and the process is educational. I love seeing the process of how things go viral. Seeing all the many sites that have picked up an image like this is really very interesting, and worth the 30 seconds that I spent doing it.

Where's the rest of it? Where we find out there's a guy stitched into the bear?

Moderator of /r/iss here.

The subreddit is set to public, so I don't know why you would be having any problems.

Is your issue resolved now?

For me it's the fact that you can be losing in Catan before the game even starts. That's the sign of an inbalanced game imo. If you just happen to pick last, you get the worst odds for the get go before the first dice is even rolled :/

see more

That's part of the problem.

The other part is open trading. You want to get what you need, but you want to give up as little as possible, so the optimal play is to suggest trade after trade until you finally get a bite. Unfortunately, this slows the game down to a crawl.

It's still an excellent gateway game. For people who play a lot of board games, though, it's lacking a lot. It was the greatest game of its generation, but games have advanced so much in the intervening 20 years that I don't think it could possibly succeed in today's market if not for nostalgia factor.

My experience of carrying board games in backpacks is that the corners will get worn very fast. I finally went back to just putting them in cardboard boxes.

I have one friend who actually removes all the components and places them in other containers, and then leaves the boxes at home. For many games, you save a large of space this way. To me, I'm not ready to geek out quite that much though. You have to draw a line somewhere!
