Topic: Off-topic / You climb Mount Everest and get a huge craving for a Mars Bar at the summit...

Here’s what I would do:

Open the wrapper carefully when no one’s looking.
Eat it (joyfully).
Fill the wrapper with snow and then glue it shut, such that it looks like the bar was never removed.
Restore the bar to its rightful place.

David Jones from the IGI games. I guess I’d have to find a secure compound somewhere and infiltrate it.

That means I’d probably have to avoid those bouncers and rosies. Damn big daddies.

Would you kindly tell us more about what you’d do in this scenario? :-)

Topic: Serious Discussion / Genetic engineering and "playing God"

Interesting, I never thought of that. I suppose you could retain the God-as-parent concept by copying insects, e.g. God is the queen ant and humans are his/her worker ants, the latter obviously not developing into queens themselves.

Regarding playing God, I think some people somewhere will do so anyway, irrespective of the moral qualms of the pious. It’s similar to the arms trade (= if we don’t sell them weapons, someone else will, so we may as well be the ones making money out of it).

True, but most stories at least have some rules regarding how “plot device X” works so it feels consistent and ‘logical’ within the context of the story
example : zombies can only be killed if their brain is destroyed
(Any other injury will only maim it, but will not kill it)

Topic: Off-topic / So desired but very disapointing game that you have ever played?

Here’s another one: Worms Reloaded. After the triumph of Worms 2/Armageddon/World Party, the devs should’ve heeded the old saying if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

Topic: Off-topic / Life-essential things for Life

You can flush a toilet by simply pouring a bucket of water down it. This water can be drawn from a butt (connected to a drainpipe, for rainwater) or it could be drawn from a tap before the shut-off.

Speaking for myself, I struggle when the electricity goes awf.

Interesting to see a couple of maybes.

You’re essentially referring to the in-peace-ness of “rest in peace”, CowFriend, but could the will-to-live stand this scenario?

Topic: Off-topic / High-stakes dice game

“Normal” people are repelled by the idea of the cessation of all life because they have deep within them the will to live. This breaks through the humdrum notion of the dice roll and the money, and forces the decision.

(A couple of things. The dice isn’t biased. And you can’t go into Heaven or any other afterlife after rolling a 1 because such places would’ve just been erased.)

Topic: Off-topic / High-stakes dice game

Would you play this game? You roll a dice (or a “die”, if you will). If it lands on 2 or above, you win £1000 (or $2000). But if it lands on 1, all life in this and any other universe is erased now and forever; thenceforth, in all possible universes, there is only an infinite silent blackness.
