@unluckiness I believe you are correct, but I didn't feel like looking it up so I didn't want to mention it. If that is the case, it isn't "capitalism" anyway. Maybe crapitalism (crony capitalism).

@  unluckiness : (23 May 2018 - 08:46 AM)

Like richard said, it's not inherently less healthy than table sugar. It's unhealthy in how it's in everything, leading to increased calorie intake that we don't even realize.

@  unluckiness : (23 May 2018 - 08:43 AM)

Also you try organizing a boycott of Coca frigging cola and see how far you get. Not to mention all the other processed foods that also make use of it that aren't as notorious for it

@  unluckiness : (23 May 2018 - 08:42 AM)

I believe the US government subsidizes corn farmers to such a degree that corn is stupidly cheap, making corporations lean towards it far more

@  Otaku : (23 May 2018 - 08:41 AM)

@SHIELD Agent 47 If HFCS was "caused" by capitalism, all it takes to solve it is people NOT buying it. As is, products that use actual sugar and countless alternative sweeteners are available. At least for big brands like Coca-Cola. ;)

@  unluckiness : (23 May 2018 - 08:40 AM)

And if doing so means that eventually is longer and less filled with complications, well, that junk food had better be the best junk ever

@  Otaku : (23 May 2018 - 08:39 AM)

@Paladin Quality of life. So many things I enjoyed as a kid have caused (or at least aggravated) health issues later in life. By later, I mean it started in my mid-20's. XP

@  unluckiness : (23 May 2018 - 08:39 AM)

THere's a difference between having some and constantly stuffing your face with calories.

@  Paladin : (23 May 2018 - 08:33 AM)

we all die eventually. why not enjoy the stuff that tastes good in the time we have?

@  unluckiness : (23 May 2018 - 08:26 AM)

HFCS is never good for you any way. It's nothing but monosaccharides basically

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 May 2018 - 11:32 PM)

*sigh* Wouldn't be that much of a problem if not for Western capitalism.

@  RichardT1977 : (22 May 2018 - 05:45 PM)

The only thing that makes HFCS more unhealthy than sugar is its lower cost.

@  Telly : (22 May 2018 - 03:20 PM)

looking at a video review and seeing all the tiny parts makes me think twice about it anyway

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2018 - 03:04 PM)

You should probably ask in the Gundam thread.

@  Telly : (22 May 2018 - 02:52 PM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 May 2018 - 12:33 PM)

Dammit, and I was just about to hook up this Coke IV directly to my bloodstream, too. Killjoy :p

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 May 2018 - 12:28 PM)

Recommendation: if you're going to fill your body up with junk food, try real sugar instead of HFCS.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 May 2018 - 12:10 PM)

Not so much that it's worth the extra money to buy it in glass bottles all the time (I think the most you can get is a 6-pack of Coke in glass bottles around here, and it's signifcantly more expensive than 6 plastic), but every once in a while it's nice to drink from an old-fashioned bottle

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 May 2018 - 12:08 PM)

Personally, I find they also tend to taste better out of a glass bottle compared to the plastic ones used most of the time

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2018 - 11:27 AM)

None that I know of, but it's a neat fact. Sodas in glass bottles stay carbonated.

@  Paladin : (22 May 2018 - 11:00 AM)

what vending machines still use glass???

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2018 - 10:54 AM)

And it won't lose carbonation if it's a properly sealed glass bottle.

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 May 2018 - 10:51 AM)

The drink is safe to drink for a good while after, the expiration date seems to apply to how "good" it will be. Usually the carbonation gives out before anything starts growing or it becomes unsafe to consume

@  Paladin : (22 May 2018 - 10:31 AM)

out of curiosity, how solid are the expiration dates on soft drinks?

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 May 2018 - 10:25 AM)

Sure does feel like they are shoring themselves up against losing a significant source of revenue...

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 May 2018 - 10:25 AM)

So I guess Hasbro is going to be making Overwatch toys now

@  Otaku : (19 May 2018 - 02:17 PM)

@TM2-Megatron Yeah, it is like @TheMightyMollusk says. The catch is that usually means they can contain beef, and I confirmed it by pushing my luck. XD So... yeah, if going to the theater was about watching the film, it might be worth potentially resting on the balls of my feet while technically sitting in the chair, but put it all together... and I just wait to watch it at home. Oh, and ticket prices, always ticket prices.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2018 - 10:24 AM)

woot woot! Korean barbeque for dinner!

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 May 2018 - 05:51 AM)

It's meat scraps. Whatever's left over from cutting up the more choice cuts.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 May 2018 - 11:26 PM)

Well, the hot dogs Cineplex has (pretty much our only big theatre chain) around here are quite good, but I have no idea of the composition, and honestly, it's probably better that way.

@  Otaku : (18 May 2018 - 10:01 PM)

@TM2-Megatron In my case, shouldn't risk the hot dogs, either. Maybe if they are guaranteed to contain NO beef (can't digest it anymore >_<).

@Nevermore First time I have ever heard of this, but it sounds awesome!

@  Arazyr : (18 May 2018 - 08:39 AM)

We did that amongst ourselves in German class in college. We just called it "Germish", though.

@  Shrug : (18 May 2018 - 07:01 AM)

Nevermore, you've peaked my interest and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 04:04 AM)

The term itself is an example: "English for Runaways" is supposed to mean "English for advanced speakers".

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 04:03 AM)

Think of it as the German variety of Engrish, only done completely on purpose for maximum hilarity. The target audience are bilingual German native speakers who a) understand the intended meaning and b) realize the absurdness of the end result.

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 04:02 AM)

It's basically the official unofficial term for deliberate mistranslations between German and English, done for the lulz.

@  Nevermore : (18 May 2018 - 04:01 AM)

Has anyone ever heard of the term "English for Runaways"?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 May 2018 - 01:13 AM)

Okay... Seriously.. The Mystic Knights need a DVD release already.. I keep seeing them pop up in the most random of places.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 May 2018 - 01:03 AM)

Unfortunately no Squidkids at Sea World so no splat zones. Now that would have been a good brand deal to advertise in the park, and would have made more brand sense than friggin' Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog.

@  Paladin : (17 May 2018 - 07:52 PM)

i think that's where the orcas jump & land on the trainers in protest to their horrible treatment

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 May 2018 - 06:53 PM)

Splat zones? ;)

It was wet from gallons of salt water. Splash zones, man.

@  Paladin : (17 May 2018 - 04:42 PM)

do you serve orca meat with butter?

Anyone else looking into this? Caught a few recommended videos of it on YouTube & felt like a purchase. Game is currently in early access & not all the features of the game are implemented, and the longer you play the buggier it gets.

(Apparently, the game currently keeps track of all environmental changes in such a way, that as the save games rack up, you almost completely brick your game.)

It's interesting, you ship crashes, and you make it to a life pod, only to be knocked out in planet fall. When you wake up, your pod is damaged & on fire. First task is to grab the fire extinguisher & put out said fire.

The pod you're in has a small locker for storage, a health kit generating device, and a super advanced 3d printer like device. Over the course of the game, you find other life pods, investigate the remains of the Aurora (the ship you were in, once you get proper radiation protective gear), find out the Aurora isn't the first ship to crash, and more. You can also scan things to learn new recipes & learn about creatures (& other things) that you find on the planet.

There's some jump scare like elements with some of the huge sea creatures, but I've been mostly able to avoid them.

I love it a lot when it's working, but I've saved so many times that my game constantly crashes in areas that have too much sea life. Right now, I'm actually stuck at a point where I can't even move 1 meter before crashing. Might have to quit until a proper update, but I really want to make it back to my base. Since I really like some of the layout, and I'd like to see if I could grab pics, so I might be able to reproduce it in the final version.

As for your game, easy fix.

 

Head to your game folder (Steamapps/common/Subnautica), head into your saved game folder and inside ought to be a CellsCache and CompiledOctreesCache folder. Delete both of them. Reboot the game - boom. Enjoy a lag and crash free game.

I'm playing the freedom version of the game, since I've a hard enough time feeding myself in real life.  I'd rather not have to worry about it in this game as well.

From watching Youtubers, the Aurora is home to Prawn parts, and you can repair the engine room to get rid of the radiation

It's not the Blueprint that's the issue...it's assembling the components for it. I'm honestly considering building a second PRAWN myself - one for mining and one for combat/exploration.

 

As I've been detailing in the Random Video Game Image thread, I actually have been constructing my third base to begin exploring the Lost River biome. I've not read a lot into the game, so a lot of this is new.

Beautiful scenery and the only place I've so far found Nickel deposits (What I need Nickel for I don't know), but there's no food or water to be found here.

A bad, bad idea. Even with my grappler arm, there's little chance I'll be able to get back up. I saved here, knowing full well that my jump into the dark would be a death sentence.

Worth jumping down for the view. Ironically, there's food at this level.

 

I found something down here.

Well finally made my PRAWN after tracking down the spore sack & had enough aluminum oxide collected.

Set up an exterior grow bed for additional spore sack so I'll never run out.

Also set up a scanner room & equipped my PRAWN with a drill arm & preassure compensator. As well as upgraded my knife to diamond reinforcement.

Any recommendations for finding silver? Always have a hard time finding it.

Silver is found in Sandstone deposits. Your best bet is the Kelp Forest. I used to hate the Lead drops from Sandstone, but that's a requirement of making Reactor Rods for the Nuclear Reactor, so the huge locker of Lead suddenly becomes your best friend.

You got the Modification Bench, which is more then I've got. The Nuclear Reactor parts can be found in the biome between the Kelp Forest and the Red Sand area. Be careful though - Reapers prowl the area.

I found the modification bench & water filtration at the 2nd Degassi base, which if you can find the entrance isn't too far from your life pod / safe shallows. Just try looking into every cave or crevice that can fit a Seamoth.

Managed to stumble onto it when looking for spore sack

Finally built myself a Cyclops.  I already hate it.  I'm not sure if it's diving, and it handles like a slug swimming in super glue.

 

Also, my upgrade bit seems to be having issues.  It doesn't show me my inventory or the Cyclops upgrade slots at all.  Will check again tomorrow, to see if the bug stays.  Supposedly, I've got the blueprints to make a Cyclops pressure compensator.  However, I'm not sure what device builds it, or I've got some sort of bug that's preventing me from making it.

 

Oh well, tomorrow's another day.

You have to install a fabricator inside the Cyclops to craft some of its items.

I'm not that fond of the Cyclops either, but it does make a decent little mobile base (when it works correctly). I like being able to bring a small garden with me, and sometimes I like to dive deep and shut off all the interior lights. I hope eventually they add the ability to shut the lights off inside the base units as well.

Oh, and I'm not certain Rust, but you might have screwed yourself out of the modification table.  I've noticed that artifacts that you can scan, after the deletion fix, pretty much takes a nose dive.  I've gone back to wrecks that I thought I'd left pretty much untouched (since at the time, I had a very limited oxygen supply), but now they're pretty much barren.

 

If you can't make a better tank, I hope you've at least got 2 tanks & the rebreather (one tank in your papercraft, and one in your inventory).  Sure, you end up with less carrying space, but it can come in handy to have more oxygen.
