I tried a PC port of Dark Souls but I couldn't get past the horrible controls. Do you play on PC or console? If you like action RPGs you might want to try Path of Exile.

I completely agree with you, but unfortunately they're in so deep now they can't just suddenly reallocate massive amounts of military spending with huge repercussions. I believe the transition would have to slow and gradual to accommodate the job loss and retraining of those employed by the military. Another fun thing to think about it what effects it would have on global politics if the US withdrew military presence around the world.

Now that you pointed it out, it does seem like the recent talks have been less technical and more about human interests. Maybe this is because TED is gaining popularity and appealing to the lowest common denominator. But to call it a meme-hosting website seems a bit extreme.

Different strains have different effects. Some just make me want to build a city in SimCity, create something in Blender, or I just get random ideas that I have to sketch up before I forget them. And then on the other hand there's strains that just make me a zombie.
