Re: Elite source code...

You can always have a look at the source code for Oolite instead, as a sort of poor-mans substitute for the real thing.

There's nothing poor about it, at least if you're playing it right. Right on, Commander!

I have broken more Elton John records, he seems to have a lot of records. And I, by the way, I don’t have a musical instrument. I don’t have a guitar or an organ. No organ. Elton has an organ. And lots of other people helping. No we’ve broken a lot of records. We’ve broken virtually every record. Because you know, look, I only need this space. They need much more room. For basketball, for hockey and all of the sports, they need a lot of room. We don’t need it. We have people in that space. So we break all of these records. Really we do it without like, the musical instruments. This is the only musical: the mouth. And hopefully the brain attached to the mouth. Right? The brain, more important than the mouth, is the brain. The brain is much more important.

Yes, it's a verbatim quote of Donald Trump complimenting himself on his own rhetorical skills. "The brain is much more important", indeed - even though, as he so wisely points out, its attachment to the mouth may be open to question.

Five daughters of hereditary peers are to challenge a law that stops them from being elected to the House of Lords.
They are taking the government to the European Court of Human Rights in a bid to end the system of male primogeniture which has resulted in almost all titles being passed to male heirs.
I've got a simpler solution - scrap the lot of them!

Remembering the words that come out of his mouth for more than three seconds? Longer than he can do himself. That's cruel! Crueler than pulling the wings off (sorry, considering the forum, "oof") flies. And much more ethically defensible.

It should have been obvious - I thought it would be obvious - but I would like to clarify, just in case it wasn't. In a key sentence in my remarks, I said the word "would" instead of "wouldn't." The sentence should have been: I don't see any reason why I wouldn't - or why it wouldn't be Russia. So just to repeat it, I said the word "would" instead of "wouldn't." And the sentence should have been - and I thought it would be maybe a little bit unclear on the transcript or unclear on the actual video - the sentence should have been: I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russia. Sort of a double negative.

So you can put that in, and I think that probably clarifies things pretty good by itself.

"I don't see any reason why I wouldn't {f***, not right... fix it} - or why it wouldn't {getting tired of this s***, damn them} be Russia."

"So you can put that in {wish I could tell them all where to put it}, and I think that probably {f***, probably?} clarifies things pretty good by itself."
