"Know thy enemy and know yourself; in a hundred battles, you will never be defeated." - Sun Tzu "At times one remains faithful to a cause only because it's opponents do not cease to be insipid." - Frederich Nietzsche "The most important tactic in an argument, next to being right, is to leave an escape hatch for your opponent so that he can gracefully swing over to your side without an embarrassing loss of face." - Stephen Jay Gould
  2. How is that The Bad Batch, by the way? I've always had less-than-zero interest in the goings-on of clones outside the spectacular videogame Republic Commando (yo, they're printable soldiers... I just don't get what's supposed to be so interesting about them). The biggest insult to Star Wars, to my eye, has long been (seriously, a decade now!) how small Disney makes it feel. Star Wars was never small when George Lucas owned it. Never. I think about things like Knights of the Old Republic, with all the depth and moral complexity on display... and then I look at Disney and I can't help but be disgusted. They built a technological terror that they're too damn afraid to do anything with . I found out from a friend that Disney commissioned a book to explain the origins of the First Order (the villains from the Sequel Trilogy). And at the end of it, where the name comes from is essentially a pun... Like, they commissioned that and then put it in print In the words of one of the great orators of our time, "SAD!"
  3. 2 months later, update? Check all boxes that apply: [ ] - I made the best decision of my life! [ ] - Oh god, what was I thinking? [ ] - Writing is hard. [ ] - Actually, writing is really easy. Writing really well is hard. [ ] - Need help (no strings attached, just trying to be nice) from weirdo writing savant who can literally give away ideas/plots/theme-insights without creating a dynamic where the recipient feels like they're being impressed upon to do something other than their own root inclinations? [ ] - Fuck that weirdo, I got this through sheer spite alone if needs be! [ ] - When did I start drinking so much? ( If you don't check the last box you're not a real writer no matter how good your efforts turn out )
  4. It's a real fucking conundrum. If he figures out that he can start saying "Criminal", "Justice", and "Reform" in sequence then I'm joining Wagner. I'll take my chances as a Russian bullet sponge over the future you people are gonna have. And please, somebody give me a laugh by pointing out the hypocrisy of such a thing. I could use a good chuckle.
  5. I would like to draw attention to the disparity in response to the -preventable- derailment of a train spewing toxins (actually threatening lives/livelihoods/homes) and some Accounting Pirates tasting nature for the first time in their cushy fucking lives And I'm so over hearing about how "this isn't a bailout" already Last time I looked the FDIC insured up to a quarter-million... but I guess that's only for the non-millionaires right? Great to know
  6. Watched episodes 7 and 8 just now. One left. Show is aces. - Says a joker ( ) Regarding Messieurs Benioff and Weiss' (let's just say it) complete chuckle-fucking of their jobs-then-careers while in custody of Mr. Martin's work... (Bella Ramsey's)
  7. Finally figured out why the Harry Potter game was having this screen-wavey-problem (I'm technologically illiterate) so I'm hoping to dive back into that and finish it. I turned on V-sync and locked the framerate at 60fps which cured the problem immediately. Also, they have to be thinking about how to do an MMO off of this, right? Or maybe a sorta-MMO, like you can Schedule Link missions to do with friends or something. Like Destiny, but with Harry Potter. And maybe good I don't know nothin about making videogames, but it just seems like a no-brainer to me to use this foundation to take another step towards playing with friends. Hell, a Dueling Club where like you get automatched with others??? An actual leaderboard and shit that you can work your way up? That'd be awesome.
  8. I ain't got all the right school'n 'n such'n to be claiming to be an expert on race, but I do live here. I've been around. I talk to people who don't look like me. And the thing that shocks me most about Whitey (Safe, Safe, and Secure Whitey), in this country and apparently in yours as well Madam Bird... It's like you people think that being from a minority group precludes one from hitting that all-important revolutionary initiation moment. It's a very special moment called: FUCK IT "They" don't think that Donald and R's LIKE THEM. "They" just fucking hate you people. And frankly, they should. You think you've seen boiling? Oh my sweet summer child.
  9. @ants "Follow the money?" Money follows production. That's what purchasing things is. I don't know where you're from, but where I'm from everything says "Made in China" Now, I don't wish I were Chinese or anything. Because I'm a peasant in this system. God only knows what I'd be in theirs. But as a recipient (fuck yourV-WORD and all its pathetic social capital misuse of the last decade-or-so) of long-term childhood abuse(s), neglect, and maltreatment by US government Social Services and the legal "Guardian" that had possession of me for a time: I have a pet theory that I'm hardwired to respect strength even if I'm opposed to it. It's why I identify with the villains. Meanwhile, have y'all seen this video of this Judge trying to talk at Stanford? It's amaze-balls. I don't know nothin about the Judge. Don't care. What fascinates me is this administrator lady giving, like, a fucking sermon after she usurps the podium. It's rambling, inane, borderline-blubbering and absolutely delightful. She's like trying to lecture a Judge about safe spaces and free speech is what she's after while she's filibustering this dude, all for the performative delight of the children. I haven't even been able to finish it because she just repeats herself every fifteen seconds because she doesn't actually have anything to say other than "These children deserve to feel safe." "I defend free speech, you're here to speak freely." "They don't want you to speak freely because you make them feel unsafe." Repeat, repeat, repeat. In this whiney tenor that no doubt makes the children feel more un-aloner for having no ability to regulate their emotions towards the enhancement of thought or communication of thought. I LOVE AMERICA!!!!
  10. Reduce enough and the only thing that could possibly be real is whatever happens next. - 21st century solipsism Your youth are all regressed to input dependents. Even your outputs are just cries for reciprocation I may not like capitalism, but goddamn if I can't help but admire what it's done to us. Y'know, in an "it ain't MY children who're gonna burn" kinda way. Hidden advantages of being sterilized - too bad for my niece and nephew, but what kinda future were they lookin' at anyway?
  11. Was that a part of Dodd-Frank?????? HOW THE FUCK HAVE I NEVER HEARD OF THIS!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!? And here I thought my biggest issue with Democrats was the willful ignorance to airborne murder as a matter of convenience. Why?
  12. Hey, baby. Life is good as long as its got laughs right? And last time I looked you don't need 0% of femurs to ROFL "Hunt the good stuff." - weird Army behavioral health saying
  13. If I were born 4 years earlier I bet I could get elected by going to every state Trump won and just reading this article instead of giving "speeches". At the "debates", I'd just recite it from memory every time I was allowed to speak. You don't wanna know what my "platform" would be.
  14. The Masters sold their laborers for slaves. The Communists sold their slaves for levers. toi kratistoi
  15. Not a doctor: But it should be like that. It's supposed to be an acute-anxiety and as-needed chemical intervention. Doctors do no service to their patients when they prescribe them like anti-depressants. That being said, giving you 4 pills and telling you to fuck off isn't good medicine either. Hang in there. Well I mean that's your first, second, and third problem right there. Your friend is wise. And I know exactly what it's like to have a friend/family member subtly pushing you to comatose yourself rather than actually taking steps to understand or help.
  16. I was on that Klonopin for years Word of hard-earned wisdom: If Eminem raps about it, don't take it That being said. Getting to the place where you DON'T need sedatives/hypnotics is hard Worth it
  17. Shower, then 4th beer. We'll call it a negotiated cessation of alco-hostilities
  18. Watchu celebratin? I'm 3 Heinekens down and debating a 4th
  19. If I were Lamar Jackson. Or rather, if I had his talent/work ethic/ general-situation to combine with my own backstory/worldview... I'd decide that since the Combine is over or whatever? I would be rather over the idea of being traded for anything more valuable than the #32 overall pick. Just me though.
  20. I hate to be a bother like this, and if you can't help or can't be bothered. Don't bother But I just sprouted an anxiety -__- Like some kinda moron I clicked on some malware And, like, I clicked a button that said like I guess I'd give money to this cartel or something. If they, like, gave me whatever the thing was or something? But, like it was malware And that's whatever. It's just. I'm worried, because I'm not like a law person Do I have to... give them my money still? Even though it was malware?
