Re: Blade Runner

so much to cover. First off, the alt text is dead on. I watched this lat year as part of a law and cinema module and was falling asleep at bits, granted I was really tired, but it was really slow. That said, it was also pretty good and the discussion later (we were equating it to immigration laws, i...

I'm guessing in the olympics, only the distance you reach horizontally counts, so you have to make it as close to horizontal as you can. But it's weird, I never heard of the extending game until I read this strip. What we used to do with tape measures was extend them to about 6-8 feet and fold them...

How do you make combos? I put the turrets next to each other, but I don't notice anything special happening. You have to max the damage out. But do they all have to be maxed out or just one? I dunno. And laser chains: does it help to upgrade the damage/range on anything other than the main laser? E...

Either way, my standard tactic is to build a big laser chain with a load of lasers in range of the road in a chain, that way you still get to hit them when they manage to get past your main firing cannon and they still get most of the force of the chain. This is an absolutely horrible idea. If guys...

since when was this ever an issue? Everybody knows that the only threat to raptors is polar bears and bizarro raptors, that's why polar bears live in the cold and raptors in the hot and bizarro raptors in another dimension.
