So that is Rally Group B and not only were there deaths, those deaths led to the end of this class of rally. I first heard of this after watching an episode of Jay Leno's Garage featuring a Ford RS200 and Tim Allen (Leno seems to mock Tim the whole time).

I love the map in this game, especially the fog of war, and when you look at town maps they are added to your map.

I use it mainly to keep track of places I've been and stuff I might want down the line.

That song is messed up. The video is linked somewhere else on this post (starting Peter Dinklage)

That's also Danny Elfman, definitely worth a Wikipedia search.

Ted Nugent's jailbait is probably the worst I've seen from him (in song form).

"Well, I don't care if you're just thirteen You look too good to be true I just know that you're probably clean There's one little think I got do to you"

So? Those backdoors have been closed since 2010 (probably earlier). Also not too many people have an Iranian Nuclear program.

Joe Lieberman was his name, while he did not act alone, I'll always remember he took the public option from us.

Also he founded No Labels, the "Unity" party that does not have a platform, but does have billionaire donors

13,000 dead women and children.

That makes me upset.

"Officials said a police team was on patrolling duty on Tuesday when during routine frisking in Dharamsal area, a man was found to be using banned VPN on his mobile phone."

"...routine frisking..."

Thats how its done people, ban something from the internet, then check you in the real world. Good luck to us all in the "New Openess"

SAG-AFTRA has gone on strike for many reasons, but one that stands out to me is an effort to make digital copies of extras and maintain the rights to use them in perpetuity. There are many implications of this, from people losing an opportunity to work, to Ethical implications ex:your likeness is used in a movie/tv show/commercial you would not want to be involved in.

I wanted to take a look at some of the past examples of entertainers likeness' being used posthumously.

Fred Astaire Vaccuum Commercial

Bob Ross Paints the Mountain Dew

Tupac Coachella Performance

Prince Posthumous Album

Whitney Houston Hologram Tour

Anthony Bourdain Voicover

Amy Winehouse Hologram Tour

Paul Walker Furous 7

Peter Cushing Rogue 1

Carrie Fisher Rogue 1 Turns out this is incorrect, Fisher passed after filming of Rogue 1. It was Rise of the Skywalker

There are definitly more examples out there, if you know of any, post them here.

On a personal note, I find this all to be deeply unethical without specific permission granted by the entertainer.

Some souces:

Actors are digitally preserving themselves to continue their careers beyond the grave

Dead celebrities are being digitally resurrected — and the ethics are murky

WYSK: There funded by dark money PACS, but some good reporting has brought out these names: David Koch, Peter Thiel, Reid Hoffman, Mark Cuban, Harlan Crow, and Michael Bloomberg. Some of there members are most famous for stopping big bills. Joe Leiberman, for example, single handedly stopped the single payer portion of the ACA. Senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsen Simena kept the John Lewis voting rights act from passing, and famously kept the senate from repealing the filibuster.

Had a good god run going, went to go change up some wands and this happened. I don't even know how many copies of things were made, 4-6 fps in this area made it unplayable.

I really like having a fresh start though, god runs get stale after a couple of days.
