Enjoy your burrito.
[QUOTE=Spesh;1064994581]Couple days late, but wanted to ask: what was your verdict on it? Did it make up for the horrifying mechanics/bugs?
Also, did you knock out the homestead missions?[COLOR="Silver"]
I enjoyed it a lot. I still like Haytham way better than Connor, though. Also, I did finish all of the Homestead missions.
I like how it's worded. "A group of douchnozels"
I think I spelled douchenozel correctly. oh well.

I did develop a passing interest in theoretical physics, though, which I wouldn't have without him. It must be amazing for parents to see that kind of thing happen, how an interest of yours can turn into an interest of your kids'. My brother is a lot more like my dad in personality but he never cared about any of that stuff. For whatever reason I sort of like it. I'm glad you expose your kids to all that kind of stuff. It's so important.
When I was in college a buddy of mine, his girlfriend and I went to see a showing of Dr. Strangelove on campus. When we got out we were talking about the movie and the girl admitted that she didn't quite "get it"... and after trying to figure out what the problem was it became clear she didn't know what the Cold War was. Had never really heard of it. Had no clue, really. It blew my ****ing mind. I literally had to explain it to her. "See, after world war two Russia and the US both had nuclear...."
That's not her fault. I mean, it wasn't like she was a dumbass. Her parents didn't really give a **** about her.
Regarding science fiction and it's relationship with science nonfiction, Wells's The World Set Free was one of Leo Szilard's influences in developing the concept of a chain reaction and an atomic bomb. Check out The Making of the Atomic Bomb by Richard Rhodes if you haven't already. Amazing book.
