Another dumb question from a layman
In what ways might a large structure such as, oh lets say a four billion light-year wide group of quasars, look different to another observer?

My parents UK set (1960s vintage?) was:
£1 = yellow
£5 = blue
£10 = light grey
£20 = green
£50 = pink
£100 = orange
£500 = red
I'm surprised how widespread the 'fines go in the middle, pick them up if you land on Free Parking' house rule is. IIRC it was introduced to our house by a Finn.
I'm another long-term 2000ad reader and 3D cynic who enjoyed this film. Twice.
If you want to see mopads, sky surfers, bat gliders, simps, the alien zoo and face change parlours you'll be disappointed. If you want to see a day in Dredd's life where he's typically grim, resolute, laconic, terse and badass you'll be very happy. If it helps at all try dialling back your mental timeline to the late 21st century, shortly after the Atomic War and before Dredd's debut in prog 2. I can accept some trimming of the more extravagent elements of 22nd century life for the sake of making a hard-edged film on $45 million that doesn't alternately make me want to laugh (not at Rob Scheider's jokes) and cringe.
Both Dredd and Anderson are portrayed superbly. The production crew's intention from the start was to make a realistic/believeable Judge Dredd film that was consistent with the character we know. I believe they succeeded.
Also the 3D is actually pretty good, not the multiple flat layers of certain other attempts.
"Flash! I love you! But we only have fourteen hours to save the Earth!"
That's my favourite line from any film, even above "We're going to need a bigger boat".
Those three rows of icons remind me of the panel Ming used to select disasters. What shall I inflict on the readers of this post: Nuclear blast? Wildfire? Chemical hazard? Plague of trolls?
madra, either you're reading a different comic from me or we have vastly differing tastes. Although I will happily concede that Pat Mills does little more than churn out repetitive tripe these days.
I queried the availability of back issues with Rebellion's PR droid. Although there are no plans to include back issues in the i-thing newstand, five years' worth of digital back issues are available in the online shop at the 2000ad website. I doubt that the entire archive will ever be digitised (except maybe as a fan-project for personal use) but all the classics you cite are part of Rebellion's excellent line of collected volumes.
"which clearly aren't scaring everyone into forking over the cash."
This says that not everyone is being scared into paying.
The statement is true, it just doesn't tell us anything useful about how many people have been successfully conned. Nor does it exclude the possibility that someone paid up _and_ went to the police, but I think that's an unlikely scenario.
Did you take Logic 101 Mr Brooks? ;-)
I think you have. IIRC Google's stated motive for gathering MAC addresses and SSIDs was to tie those identifiers to geographic locations. Then, when you turn on wi-fi, the device checks nearby wireless networks against the database of known network locations and tells you where you are.
