Re: VIDEODROME

That immediately led me to his explanation of Cookie Clicker, which totally isn't about anything else.



Also holy shit they expanded that thing while I wasn't watching.

Welcome to the escape pods, take a seat, enjoy the view and try not to listen to those sounds coming from below decks. I'm sure it's just our overstressed imaginations.

Re: Rooty-tooty point and shootys

Yeah, while our firearms crime rates are low they're not literally zero, I think only Japan makes that claim. The UK has no casual handgun ownership but farms and groundskeepers have hunting rifles much like anywhere else and most rural towns have a weapon shop.

Er, maybe. I'm confused over which is which these days. I meant the Rational Centrist ones with the Jordan Peterson obsession.

Re: HOW WAS YOUR DAY

I see the appeal, you don't have to look at much history to abandon the idea of people ever saving themselves. Even allowing for fucking magic though, it should obviously be vital to get rid of people like Musk because what you'll get from magitek under guys like that is nerve stapling. Ten years ag...

It's hard to maintain accurate levels of cynicism at all times. Hope can be dangerously addictive.

Re: FINAL FANTASY ONLINE 2-2 Not shit edition

I've heard this one has a fixed correct way to play each class to the point that everyone's skill rotations are designed around everyone else aligning buffs and attacks to the second. Is that just an optional end-game raid thing or does it apply to everything that's not solo?
