      does it really matter if you dont step in a poo?
      Little did you know, all video games save your progress! One catch; Many of them don't ignore your mistakes. "Exit game," included.

      Reached lvl2? Saved! Intentional design sending you back to lvl1 on death? Saved! Exit button developer understood would remove the game's RAM-reliant progression? Your choice to lose everything is remembered by you, and therefore your save data has been transferred to your human memory, until you play again and create an experience memorable enough to forget the first.
      I clap as I see a human dance like a robot. But on the day I see a robot dance, flawlessly imitating humanity, I know not what I'll do.
      If truly large bodies of mass affect not only gravity, but also time, I wonder if there is a planet somewhere with neighbor-induced slo-mo.

      Interesting... Do you mean an inhabited planet experiencing a wave of time dilation due to the fly-by of another planet? The way I imagine it, even if it was of notable intensity, nothing would appear to change *subjectively*.

      There's a need to consider the *ratio* between objective time and inner time (the "tick-rate" of the brain). A wide-spread, passing wave of distortion of spacetime would change both outer and inner time (electrochemical brain dynamics would slow proportionally with the local environment).

      Anyone inhabiting the planet/zone would only be aware of the gravitational change (unless they looked at something outside the zone, where everything would appear a lot faster). So yes, visible time dilation would require one to look into or out of the dilation bubble.
      A character you love dies in the next episode! I don't really know, or I might be lying, but this is a spoiler nonetheless... Devious!
      I'm you, from the future! Also, you'll have to inform yourself again when you get forcibly sent back as well in two years...
      You can never have too much of a good thing a good thing a good thing a good thing a good thing a good thing!
      With the repel/hover block demoed on the stream, I feel as though a push weapon-powered warhead railgun could be stabilized properly. >=]

      Given, the barrel must not be displaced quickly. Something much easier to build on a planet, so long as a player aims the turret.

      The outcome would have a higher muzzle velocity than launch rails provide!
      That sig though. Deep stuff when you think of the time-lag between when something happens, how long till your brain processes the information you saw, and then the time it takes you to understand it as a concept to think about it. Reality is the future, and we're prisoners of the past. XD
