When I was a little primary school student all I wanted to do was shoot guns because of James Bond and perfect dark. Also I had like a billion friends and was never bullied at all.
Also when I got into Americas Army, I almost went to join the army, luckily I was too young. Why would the US army continue to spend money on their free game if it didn't recruit anybody?
Also c striker, alien contact is NOT inevitable but I'd bet my last dollar on other lifeforms (not necessarily intelligent) existing in the universe. It'd take some mega cool awesome technology to ever make contact with alien life forms effectively.
Perhaps the key founding members of Christianity were no crazier than some of the people creating today's new religions! I do and have doubted the total sanity of anything who has had one of these experiences since I have been old enough to philosophise the topic. It makes a lot of sense that if one is searching for signs and whatnot, given he has the suitable mind, he will end up tricking himself into believing he was touched by god.
This is only going to feed the atheists what they want.
that's the beauty of all-powerful, you don't need to be able to answer it, god can just do these things, cause, he's god.
Also, the whole theory of the big bang is that all energy was at a singularity, and infinitely small point, like the whole universe as we know it compressed into a point. This then turned into the big bang. So that kind of answers your question. But what was before that, is like asking what comes after infinity.
World Crafter is actually correct, but that doesn't stop us from utilizing the rule.
Also Tito, wormhole time travel is highly theoretical, if I jumped out into another space time, who would know what would happen to the rest of the world, I assume if you go forward, then time is just distorted so greatly that it just seems like you went into the future, but you were really just preserved. But if you took the same shortcut back through space time, saying what would happen to the traveler is easy, but what the hell would happen to observers is the tricky part. Maybe you'll end up lost in eternal vacuum which isn't accessible in a 3D space, or maybe all your observer buddy with unconsciously travel backwards in the direction of time, so it would seem like a seamless flow to them, but since you are not in the 3D world at this time, you won't be age or memory affected, this would mean if you go back for your birth, you might get an identical sibling, provided you don't alter anything, probably best to wait until after the baby is born. OR you could create a parallel universe and it'd just be identical from the point of time you traveled to. Hell there could even be a chance you'll just destroy the universe, but I doubt that.
Please don't post that stupid video. And Cstriker, you are wrong about that "producing a higher dimension" there are so many flaws in what you just said I don't know where to start correcting you, wee, forstarters that was not a 4d cube either, and it wasn't on a 3d space, it was represented on a virtually 2D space, and appeared to have 3 dimensions to it, when in fact it only had 2. We live among 3 dimensions, on paper, we can represent 3D objects in a 2D sense, much like any 3D video game, which is in fact not really 3D but rather virtually flat.
Don't try and represent anything 4D in the 3rd dimension, it's stupid. If you are going to try, at least do it in a real 3D space in front of people instead of a screen which projects things in 2D.
yes cstriker, it is. 4D is like have a direction which extends out at a right angle to the x y and z axis. It is impossible to imagine, but if it would most likely be like the ability to perceive our 3D world in a 2D sense, giving you on extra direction beyond our 3 planes. I can't say for certain it'd be a 4th dimension, the 4th and beyond dimensions were again just made up to explain certain mathematical things.
you should make the bullet spin, it will look like its moving more, and most guns are rifled these days anyway! Anyway, I was impressed, but what the hell was the thing in the end of the bullet, looked like some sort of reverse primer.
not sure about source, but goldsource did have a built in movie maker. You type startmovie moviename fps in the console and it prints a series of bmps into the games folder. Eg. "startmovie movie1 25. You need demos to do this btw. You can then turn the pictures into a video with a program like videomach or something. This method gives by far the highest quality results, but takes a while.
Folding matter doesn't fold time. Also you gotta remember that it is all about relativity to the traveler and observer, going out in space may appear to go slower to an observer in length, but the person in space would have felt the exact same time, it's not like you live in slow motion. If you happened to have a space craft that could travel super close to the speed of and you where traveling to a planet 5 light years away at top speeds, to an observer it may seem like its taking a bit over 5 years, but to the traveler it would only actually seem like something like 5 days.
As for the time travel stuff, you're best theoretical bet would be to pass through a theoretical wormhole, therefor taking a short cut through some sort of nonexistent space and coming out on the other side of space in a different time space. And your best bet on making a worm hole according to some physicist is to get a butt load of stars all close to each other which as some of you said has been correct, using extreme gravity to speed yourself up, how you would survive the encounter I have no clue.
wormholes are just a theory themselves, they just a made up the concept to explain other things. Don't get too excited over them, it's not like the existence of them has even been proved or ever will be, they are by no means commonly accepted within existence.
good to see you're grasping the true power of this thread huntey!
It all started because apparently spore (which I never played) implemented a terrible system and constantly nagged people to auth their game. The Sims, which is known to be modded a lot (at least when I played it) would suffer heavily from it, most likely lowering their sales.
I mean, in the end, every decision EA makes will be because of the money.
