That could be a fun game. Describe what Hulk does in your movie and let the people guess which movie it is.

WW III should be quickly over with all the nukes and biological weapons.

Topic: Off-topic / I thought "to decimate" means "to reduce to 10%"

We should introduce that roman decimate thing to politics. Whenever they fuck up they have to kill 10% of their own. Of course across all parties. That should make things interesting.

Maybe that’s the reason why we haven’t found any (advanced) alien life yet. Maybe the distances are just that huge that it is physically impossible to avoid one of the life destroying events. The game over screen shows up before a life form has the chance to extend the game.

Also lol at only 22 light years. :D

Topic: Off-topic / I just thought of something.

This sentence implies at best the possibility of the existence of god (whatever that word means). But that really depends on what there is nothing out there is supposed to mean. In the worst case this sentence doesn’t make any sense because it contradicts itself.

I don’t want the Milky Way to collide with anything. :( That’s the place where I life. But it does look cool.


If you think about the upcoming galactic events the word deadline gets a completely new meaning. First the sun is going to swallow or fry our planet and then our galaxy is going to collide with another one. This part of the universe doesn’t seem to be a good spot for long term planing.

If you like pictures like that go play the Shivering Isles Add-On for Oblivion and watch the sky. Not really related to planets but still very impressive.

Once upon a time there was a tree.
But one day it was cut down, made into arrows and shot at knees.
The end.

Topic: Off-topic / Space Colony Overlord

Congratulations! You are now an Overlord in charge of the first colonization of an earth-like planet called Gaia. Your job is it to make sure earth profits from this operation. To make your job easier here are two reports.


The planet

Gaia is too far away to get detailed information but you can be sure about the following:

  • The living conditions (gravity, radiation, atmosphere, temperature) are similar to the ones on earth. No terraforming necessary.
  • It has also resources similar to those on earth (including water). On top of that it has an almost endless supply of a fuel which can be used to produce clean energy. This fuel does NOT exists on earth.
  • You have no information about the life forms (including plants) on Gaia.
  • Communication with Gaia will have a delay of two weeks. (If you send a message, you will get a reply in two weeks).

The colony ship

Can transport people and material (duh). The voyage will take a year. Your technology allows you to see things in a distance equal to what the ship could reach in three months.

It has enough resources to support the colonists during the voyage and 3 months after that. For whatever reasons you won’t be able to build another colony ship. For even more obscure reasons it can not be controlled remotely.


Based on this information what are your orders?

  • What sort of people will you send? (Profession, personality, skill level)
  • What tasks will you assign to those people?
  • What sort of equipment will you send?
  • What measures will you take to make the mission a success?

A completely controlled colony will be considered a better outcome than an independent colony. An independent colony will be considered better than a failed mission. The mission will fail if:

  • The colony ship is destroyed. (for example crash landed beyond repair)
  • The colony ship is unable to return to earth. (for example crew dies)
  • You fail to establish a colony on Gaia.

I’d prefer serious answers but if you want to, feel free to send only hookers and blackjack cards. That could be fun too.

Absolutely! All I’m saying is that you should be careful when looking at evidence because things are different from what we are used to at such distances. But of course it would still be a huge step in the right direction.

20 years is ambitious. I think within the next 1000 years we will have answered the question if we are alone out there or not. Wouldn’t mind an answer during my lifetime though. :)

But the distances are just too astronomic. Even if we would get a picture of some alien today there would still be no guarantee that this alien’s race didn’t go extinct in the time this picture traveled to earth. The closest star system is already over 4 light years away. So if we take a look at it this moment we see how it looked over 4 years ago. And that’s just where it begins.

If you look up in the night sky you can see stars which are already 1000+ light years away. With a quick google search you can even find a galaxy which is more than 13 billion light years away. Light takes more than 13 000 000 000 years to travel to this place. And light itself moves already at a freaking high speed (7.5 times around the earth in one second).

Topic: Off-topic / Aliens

Sure. You could assume that planets like earth is not common but an exception to some rule. This would lead to a small amount of planets which would support civilizations. And then it would be possible that none of the other civilizations evolved enough.

No idea if the earth is that special. Maybe we have a biologist around here who knows what is necessary to create life artificially. I assume it will be something like water + right temperature + some sort of atmosphere + X. Doesn’t sound very special to me. So I think it is more likely that we have a huge amount of earth-like planets. Also earth-like planets don’t need to be necessary the only place where life could exist.

Topic: Off-topic / Aliens

The Universe isn’t only huge beyond any imagination. It is also older than crows. The big question is: why haven’t we seen any sign of alien life yet (Fermi’s paradox). I mean how long did it take us to invent space flight? Even if you add the time to develop into humans this is still nothing compared to a civilization which would be founded a million years ago. By now they should have developed technologies to visit or at least contact us. But who knows… maybe they have already and reality isn’t what it seems to be. Matrix ftw.

It would be official deployment that, for my profession, would probably see me unable to find another job for 2-3 years minimum. It’s a difficult spot to be in, as I could also potentially land a new job and my salary would be about double what the peace corp could offer, but no guarantee that I get to help others.

You can help people outside of your job. Just make a list of the goals you would like to achieve in the next 5 years and see which choice will get you closer to your goals.

That doesn’t sound bad. Depends on the country you would go to though (unless you don’t mind being buried alive and stuff like that). And your other options of course. But I don’t see anything wrong with helping people and gaining experience abroad. This is something official right? Not something like a sect?
