This Intro of Freelancer appeared on an asian server for a few hours a year or so before the game was released.. It is longer than the original and it uses music from Star Trek - Wrath of Khan It's quite a gem and the sound effects are awesome especially at the end..posted by Kalle 4 years 2 months ago • 4,095 views
1. Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell - weird and disjointed but just so damn good
2. The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell - I wouldn't think a story of ET contact and the catholic priesthood could move me so much - very hard to describe without it sounding dumb - but a great read
3. A Fire Upon the Deep by Vernor Vinge - The best massively imagined Space Opera ever written
4. Oryx and Crake - Margaret Atwood - Depressing in its dystopian vision, but so well thought out and realized.
5. The Yiddish Policeman's Union - Michael Chabon - I don't usually go for the alternate history type books - but the cold Sitka Alaska setting really works for me. The Coen Brothers are making this into a movie.
Honorable Mention: Titan by John Varley because I read it in 8th grade and still read it every 5 years

One of my favorite bits. This bit made me think twice about the way I viewed the world when I was still young. I'm not a conservative or a liberal and it's because of George Carlin.posted by Ryjkyj 5 years 3 months 1 week ago • 6,396 views • 7:38

In Canada (at least the parts where I've been) we hardly have either vocal evangelicals or vocal atheists, so overt Bible-thumping and backlash against it are rather foreign concepts. (As I've said before, the topic of evolution is basically a non-issue up here.) I've also barely visited the States, so haven't experienced much of what life in the US is like. Anybody care to weigh in with comments about the prevalence of visible Christianity in the US?
PS: I'm sincerely hoping this thread can happen without getting ugly or hostile. We're all grown-ups.
A series of footage taken from the History Channel, National Geographic, and other sources showing footage of those executed at Nuremberg. The footage starts with a headshot of each figure, then shows them during the war years, followed by their trials and finally their deaths.posted by EntertainmentMajor 6 years ago • 6,846 views • 7:42
