I have a hard time agreeing with just about everything you said. Thats not to say you're wrong, or Bioware did things the right way or anything of that nature. I on the other hand think you're clinging to certain things...too much? » 11/24/14 12:59pm Yesterday 12:59pm

There's only so much EMP hardening you can do. And really with a strike that close, even if he had it they were still dead. Plus it looks like the implication is that the facility is his so its more than possible that he spent quite a bit on that, thus not necessarily spending it on EMP protection for his plane. » 11/19/14 9:56am 11/19/14 9:56am

My mother was an Archeologist, sadly it really doesn't pay the bills like at all, and I went out with her on countless digs and surveys as an ameture with some training...and everything you said is so true. We still love the movies but they do butcher actual archaeology. That said, being a kid growing up at different… » 11/17/14 7:52am 11/17/14 7:52am

The experiment, as described, requires it. The experiment is not just about the drug (if it works/how well it works/side effects etc) but about mass administration of medicine to an entire populace, as well as if malaria can be completely eliminated from an area. The second two points being evaluated could only be… » 11/11/14 12:14pm 11/11/14 12:14pm

I really can't tell if you've watched the shows, or actually thought about why things are the way they are in these shows and movies. Because your argument makes zero sense if you do actually take the time to think about these things. Lets look at some of the examples you bring up... » 10/29/14 4:41pm 10/29/14 4:41pm

Just want to point out, that is not the full quote that appeared in the siberian times article. A better quote is " 'I am quite sure of the diagnosis - she had cancer. She was extremely emaciated. Given her rather high rank in society and the information scientists obtained studying mummies of elite Pazyryks, I do not… » 10/19/14 7:41pm 10/19/14 7:41pm

Its mostly psychological (though one could argue physical too due to how the brain works). Our brains work to interpret what we see and a lot of that is based on what we expect to see (there've been articles about it here on io9 before). I couldn't see any sort of old woman in the images at all until I went to the… » 10/16/14 1:00pm 10/16/14 1:00pm

Neither would be really affected in the foreseeable future. Assuming they get the prototype created like they want being able to produce it on a commercial level is a different thing entirely. Add on top of that the sizes they propose are not conducive to car engines, so oil producers will still have that market. And… » 10/15/14 6:57pm 10/15/14 6:57pm
