    ...

    Except, how do you see if a horse has a bruise? I guess you gotta shave it first?

    Considering how much those dead horses have been beaten, it should be fairly easy to see.

    Do dead horses still bruise?
    Sounds like that chicken and the egg dilemma to me.

    Yeah.. Doesn't bruising require blood flow? :D
     
  8. A bruise is formed when blood vessels rupture, spilling their contents into the surrounding tissue. So long as the blood has not coagulated, corpses can bruise and even bleed...

    Don't ask me how I know this...

    Isn't the bleeding into surrounding tissue something that requires blood pressure?

    Surely there'd still need to be a pressure difference to cause the blood to flow.

    I'mma step out of this discussion, though. A few more posts and I'll start with the research, and that just won't end well when combined with being ill :<
     
  12. Between scripting and classic shards, it's a tough one to call. I would scripting though, because it's been a problem ever since 99ish (or earlier if you knew somebody who knew somebody), while the classic sever idea didn't really catch favor until after LBR and definitely after AoS.

    To the Classic Shard astroturf campaign... good try, but the jig is up.

    It almost defies belief why a handful of people would make 40 posts a day for like a year and a half, when they could play a Classic shard for FREE right now. Besides being FREE what would be one of the only other differences between a FREEshard and an EA shard? Well the FREEshard bans RMTers.

    And how silly must they be to use an account where there person has posted (s)he hates Stratics, was a Markey Duper founder, and made a living off UO. Then posts multiple times UO is going to die if EA bans cheaters, including to one of Cal's posts. Then they have some other spammer posting UO devs are not "legitimate developers". Classy.

    I'd say the most overwrought topic would be horribly biased stratics polls that show nothing and mean even less!

    But this is not one of those. :thumbup1:
