Comrades! I've heard a lot of people claiming that the NFL isn't Trumps business and bla, bla, bla, but it IS his business for a number of reasons. As commander and chief of the military, he is faced with the fallout that these ingrate, millionaire morons have inflicted on the country. These brainless athletes who have little to no idea about the long term ramifications of their actions shoulder no responsibility. Try to imagine if you were at some FOB in Afghanistan watching these guys ...

Everyone comes to Mars with grandiose ideas. Booming businesses, second chances, a new life…

Me? I came to Mars because I was bored. 

Everyone always talks about how difficult it is to run a business. Frankly, I think they’re simply missing the ease of it. Hire competent people and demand that they do their jobs. You shouldn’t have to lift a finger to do anything once you get the pieces in place pro...

The big GalCiv III v2.5 update went out.  Most people like it.  Not everyone of course (it breaks save games).  If you're liking it, you know the drill "Like and Subscribe" as they say on YouTube or in Steam's case, please leave a review.  Even if you've left a review in the past, you can delete your old one and leave a new one which will have the "Recent reviews" which matters a lot (a lot more than it should imo but hopefully Valve will update their algorithms in light of r...

I just watched the last seven minutes of Cassini before it plunged into Saturn's atmosphere at more than 77,000 miles an hour. The pictures it sent back over the last thirteen years plus what the Huygens probe discovered on Titan have to be some of the most spectacular views of the Saturnian system. Not taking anything away from Juno at Jupiter or New Horizons as it flew past Pluto but Cassini in my opinion tops them all. Thirteen years at Saturn! Absolutely incredible.
