    I can't wait until this is a fully viable energy solution. If they can condense down a fusion reactor to a smaller size, everyone could have their own power source for their houses or even their cars. Could you imagine never having to fill up a gas tank or recharge a battery again? I wouldn't be surprised if car companies are working on electric only cars just for the day when small fusion engines are made. Once that happens all the car companies with electric cars will be able to just drop the new reactor engine in and they'll be good to go.. and all the car companies with only gas or flex fuel engines will struggle their asses off to catch up.

  5. Sledgstone liked a post in a topic by gokuDX7 in Fox has no idea what Net Neutrality is   
    For the third time I've heard them try and push their viewers to fight against Net Neutrality without even explaining what it is to their uneducated viewers. They claim Net Neutrality is bad because it allows ISPs, company's, and the government control over your Internet. The reality of it is Fox has it backwards. Like the name implies Net Neutrality is the act of keeping the net free and unregulated like it has been since it was created. Every since Senator McCain proposed his backwards ass "Internet Freedom Act." bill to congress, Fox News and other media outlets have been pushing this uneducated babble that Net Neutrality and the FCC are bad LOL.
    Here's some videos for those that are still confused

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9jHOn0EW8U]YouTube - Net Neutrality[/ame]
    The reason this is blowing up so big now is because ISP's have been throttling and prioritizing web traffic, specifically bittorrent, and getting attacked by the FCC because of it. ISPs are complaining that the FCC hasnt given a fine line on what they can and cant do so they go a head with such practices of prioritizing certain program protocols on the Internet (ex. VoIP phones). So the FCC has stepped up and will be making that fine line clear so ISPs wont have any more excuses on what they can and cant do. The FCC will not be taking away our freedom or give ISPs the power to prioritize programs. They're fighting for us yet the media has it all backwards.

    I wonder just how viable this idea is. I mean, I don't it would ever replace all our current energy producers, but I do think it would be a step in a good direction. Though, it would have to withstand the punishment that current road paving does, or it wouldn't be worth it. I do like the idea of electric cars able to recharge themselves as they drive. That alone would make it worthwhile, even if that's all they could do.

    http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/us_and_americas/article6835364.ece
    Barack Obama has called Kanye West a "jackass" for interrupting an MTV awards show to declare that the wrong person had won.
    The outspoken rapper was drowned out with boos at the Video Music Awards on Sunday night when he grabbed the microphone from the young country star Taylor Swift and announced that Beyonce had made a better video.
    Asked about the row during an interview with CNBC, President Obama appeared to sum up the national mood pretty well, albeit undiplomatically.
    The problem was that his remark was made during an off-the-record part of the interview which was not going to be made public. Terry Moran, an ABC reporter who was at the recording and overheard the comment, then broke the agreement by deciding to tweet it.
    "Pres. Obama just called Kanye West a 'jackass' for his outburst at VMAs when Taylor Swift won. Now THAT'S presidential," he wrote.
    Mr Moran quickly deleted the tweet but it was too late. The Nightline co-anchor has more than a million followers on Twitter, many of whom had already re-tweeted his remarks.
    The network was forced to apologise to CNBC and the White House and said that it was taking steps to avoid a repeat of the incident.
    Meanwhile, West himself apologised once again for his outburst on an appearance on Jay Leno's new prime time talk show and said that he was going to take some time off for reflection.
    West said that he knew he had been wrong the moment he handed the microphone back to Swift, when he was bathed in boos from the audience. “It was rude, period,” West said.
    The star posted a second apology to Swift on his blog yesterday and told Leno that he wanted to apologise to her in person.
    West fell silent when Leno asked what his mother would have said about the incident, but finally admitted that she would have told him off. West was very close to his mother, Donda, who died in November 2007.
    “So many celebrities, they never take the time off,” he said. “I’ve never taken the time off to really - you know, just music after music and tour after tour. I’m just ashamed that my hurt caused someone else’s hurt."
    getting called a jackass by the president is an achievement LOL

    We lost some posts today because we had to restore a database backup. A corruption issue came out of nowhere and took down the forums for about an hour and 10 minutes until we gave up on fixing the issue and instead restored a backup.

  24. Sledgstone liked a post in a topic by Kite in Lobo Live Action   
    http://splashpage.mtv.com/2009/09/02/guy-ritchie-to-direct-lobo-movie-still-targeting-pg-13-rating/
    Not to be outdone by Disney's acquisition of Marvel Entertainment, DC Comics and Warner Bros. are rolling out some major announcements of their own this week—the latest involving the cigar-chomping, head-stomping antihero, Lobo. According to Variety, a "Lobo" movie is officially on the way with "Sherlock Holmes" helmer Guy Ritchie attached as director.
    The film, said to be "strong on visual effects," depicts Lobo as "a seven-foot tall, blue-skinned, indestructible and heavily muscled anti-hero who drives a pimped out motorcycle, and lands on Earth in search of four fugitives who are bent on wreaking havoc. Lobo teams with a small town teenaged girl to stop the creatures."
    While his attachment is surprising, we can't say that Ritchie didn't tease the possibility of "Lobo" earlier. The filmmaker previously hinted to MTV News that his next project would be set in a comic book world, though it wouldn't be "Sgt. Rock" as many had speculated.
    "What I like is a world where you have major broad poetic license, whether its comic properties or whatever," he said at the time. "I like stepping into an animated world. Exactly how that animation manifests itself is secondary. The primary thing is to leave what we perceive as a normal world and depart into a '300'-type or 'Avatar'-esque. And that appeals to me. I like 'Sin City' and '300' and 'Watchmen.' I like departing from a normal world."
    All of those movies that Ritchie mentioned boast decidedly dark premises, which isn't surprising considering his work on "Snatch" and "Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels." Still, the WB is aiming for a PG-13 rating for "Lobo," something that producer Joel Silver revealed a few short months ago.
    "I think ['Lobo' is] structured now as a PG-13 movie," the producer said of the film's rating. "I think we've done it that way, but I love it.
    While an R-rating would likely provide a truer-to-the-comics "Lobo," films like "The Dark Knight" proved that a comic book movie can test the boundaries of a PG-13 rating. With any luck, "Lobo" will be no different.
    Do you think "Lobo" and Guy Ritchie are a good match? Are you concerned over the PG-13 rating? Who would you like to see play Lobo?
