F*****g Nickelodeon - they just announced they have pulled the last five episodes of Legend of Korra off the air and will only show it via streaming online video. Now, we can queue up the show on the iPad and HDMI cable it through the TV, so it's not like we can't still enjoy the show, which is easily the best animated series out there (though perhaps still not as good as its predecessor, Avatar the Last Airbender), but it's the principle of the thing. Nick has treated this show like dog crap, with a horrible timeslot and next to no marketing to speak of.  The management of Nickelodeon must be a bunch of complete knuckleheads - and don't even get me started on how they've managed to dumb down the once engaging Spongebob to the point where it is basically a show for preschoolers.

F Nickelodeon!

This one wins!  Cheesy

I just finished doing a 7 day ban. I can do 7 days standing on my head! Honestly didn't miss BGG. Home of trolls, sockpuppets and the like. Enough scumbags over there that suck all of the enjoyment out of the place. Lets not forget Triple M Moron. It was great back in the day.

It's like going without food for me. The first couple days are tough.

Then, I forget I ever needed it.

I'm most addicted to BGG when I have some spare cash and am in the market for purchasing games. Then I'm on 24/7 prowling the marketplace and GeekBay and the Geeklist Auction Metalist Geeklist.

Yeah we get this in the UK too, a lot of the time on roundabouts. I know you don't really do roundabouts in the US but if any of you US folk have ever driven in the UK you'll understand the need for clear signalling on those things. It's either no signalling or people in the wrong lane cutting you up as you try to exit.

I've yet to brave the Swindon "Magic Roundabout". Any of you fancy driving round this thing:  Grin



http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-wiltshire-19726385

  What. The. ****.

Roundabouts have started to pop up in my are, but that, well, it's something on a whole other level...

Where I live - Carmel, IN - has more roundabouts that anywhere else in the United States.  I actually really, really like them.  They've actually been put in to make the community friendlier to pedestrian and bike traffic.  One of the main divided highways through the community, Keystone Avenue, divided the community in half, so people who lived on one side couldn't really walk or bike to the other side safely - in typical Indiana exurban fashion, each intersection was wide and massive: standing traffic, no pedestrian signals, no sidewalks.  So they lowered the road and ran "teardrop" roundabouts for the cross-streets over, using on and off ramps for turning traffic.  This allowed them to put bike and walking paths along the cross-streets and over the divided highway, making pedestrian and cyclist traffic across the divided highway much easier and safer.  As well as reducing the sitting time for people commuting along Keystone who used to have to sit at half a dozen long lights.  They did it for six intersections, and it's really brought the two "halves" of Carmel into contact with each other from a pedestrian standpoint.



Anyway, this is the rants thread, and I've just spent a paragraph talking about how great something is.

So, uh, what the **** is it with people who stop before entering a roundabout and then look to see if a car is coming?  You're supposed to look at the traffic in the roundabout as you approach so you don't have to stop - not stopping is the point of the roundabout!  Well, that and slowing down traffic through intersections so there are fewer fatal accidents.

I should not be allowed to have a license.

It should also not be the only reasonably convenient way
to get around in an urban environment. Sad

Yeah that really annoys me. That along with the social pressure to drive and own a car. I held out for a long time, I think it's probably a little easier because of the distances involved here but moving out of London and having children made it much harder. Dont enjoy driving though, and I still like the slower pace of walking, cycling and public transport.

I hate public transit, but at least I don't feel like I'm likely to kill people.
