Suffocating is a big factor in stopping time also. But nobody ever things of it. You can only bring what is immediately around your head. If you don't continously move around you will run out of air

I absolutely love Love LLOOOVVVEEE The full Bioshock series. What I didn't like about the game was the LARGE amounts of Time accurate racism. I can understand it's for accuracy, but when you make my Main Man, Abraham Lincoln, look like the DEVIL, then we got problems. That, and I'm mainly Scotch-Irish, mainly Scotch though.

The up and down motion in Columbia is no worse than ocean liner. People live in those shops with no problem. Line of sight issues solved by not looking over edge. Why can't Columbia vent warm oxygen. Also Columbia could be at 16k feet. The craft goes above Columbia before landing.

“Life goal of 1 million subs.” *has 10 million subs and a YTR series* Wow, what an unrealistic goal.

But now trogen produce oxygen and also they have the brain to know the temperature above the clouds, so they can create the technology to do that. Humanity is evolving patt. We're evolving. But this is just an opinion. A video opinion. Its 2018

Mmmm, old-school shitty-mic MatPat. It's funny, his recording isn't bad, I'm not hearing any resonance, so he's probably recording in a closet full of clothes. And his voicing skills are quite good and similar (slightly less over-the-top) than they are now. And his script is beautifully sharp. But his frequency response is just crap. I'm curious what he's recording with at this point. I remember when I started recording back in the mid 90s. I was trying my best to get decent voice-over with a mid-grade condenser mic, no pre-amp, plugged into a cassette-tapedeck, trying to get features like chrome tape and dolby-B noise reduction to work. With my first decent soundcard, things almost got worse. It was an incredible chore to get the noise of my desktop, both RF interference, and fan noise, out of my recordings. So many hours of work to get something halfway decent, and all of it is now circumvented by "buy this, speak in this kind of room. Done." The future is amazing.
It's so nice to see how matpat said he wants to get 1m subs and now in 2018 is about to hit 10m. Times change man. Still waiting.

later if the game was left alone, you could take down the fu+king city with an air burst nuclear warhead.

Lol just like the adaptation it would take for the altitude, anyone born there would be used to the constant feeling of motion at least in my opinion
The whole point of BioShock is that Ayn Rand's Objectivism (Bioshock 1, 2, and Burial At Sea), and Right Wing Politics in general (Bioshock Infinite) does NOT work and can ONLY lead to disaster...... The cities are supposed to suck

What if the nitro cooled disk was under the city somehow keeping it up suspended up like with pillers. Or the bollnes have the cooled disks inside of them I mean why spend the money for the blimps and why the up and down motion
