Speaking of complex modding, I'm attempting to mod Oblivion.  Nothing fancy, just a bajillion bugfixes, crash fixes, a new levelling system, a new UI and up to date graphics.

Should be a piece of cake


Psssh, I bet Oblivion doesn't even have ONE quest where you kill some Draugr, dodge traps that you then spring on more Draugr, and then a bigger, meaner Draugr that you fight by chugging 40 potions and kill with a dagger for cheap yuks.

You can't mod in that kind of creativity.

They didn't seem to have anything prepared, aside from one-line laws abolishing everything, which aren't going anywhere.

The healthcare thing...They had 8 years to prepare.  8 years to line up support, put together something that at least didn't seem heinous, and have it ready to go.

And now Trump and the republican congress are making threats at each other.

...and to hear the lamentations of Paul Ryan.

And this.   :lulz:

The only alternative to "the GOP huffed their own farts so fucking hard they thought this would work" that I can think of is that they really didn't think they were gonna win the White House in 2016. They thought that Clinton would take it, and they would get at least another 4 years to whip up frothing-at-the-mouth crazies (they would lose the overt racism angle that they had with Obama, but misogyny and "EMAILZ" would probably have worked nearly as well). Plus, they could have gotten the Bernie Bros and Jill Stein's gelatinous voting blob-monsters to continue sabotaging the Left.

But they did, indeed, end up catching the car. And I suppose now it doesn't matter much if it was a cunning plan gone bad, or having rocks for brains.

In case folks missed the other thread, I am in the market for test readers. Requirements include a working printer, 72 sheets of paper, and time to go through 285 pages of nonsense (which does sound like a lot, but remember one of the pages literally just has the word "booger" on it).

I could probably bogart my work printer for that purpose, but the earliest opportunity would be Monday evening.

This is how it starts.  This time next month you'll be deep into a Boku no Pico marathon session while ordering waifu pillow slips from eBay, with no end in sight.

I've immunized myself by applying steady doses of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.

Nani the fuck did you just fucking iimasu about watashi, you chiisai bitch desuka? Watashi’ll have anata know that watashi graduated top of my class in Nihongo 3, and watashi’ve been involved in iroirona Nihongo tutoring sessions, and watashi have over sanbyaku perfect test scores. Watashi am trained in kanji, and watashi is the top letter writer in all of southern California. Anata are nothing to watashi but just another weaboo. Watashi will korosu anata the fuck out with vocabulary the likes of which has never been mimasu’d before on this continent, mark watashino fucking words. Anata thinks anata can get away with hanashimasing that kuso to watashi over the intaaneto? Omou again, fucker. As we hanashimasu, watashi am contacting watashino secret netto of otakus across the USA, and anatano IP is being traced right now so you better junbishimasu for the ame, ujimushi. The ame that korosu’s the pathetic chiisai thing anata calls anatano life. You’re fucking shinimashita’d, akachan.

I thought I was having a stroke. Then I realized the truth was so much worse.

Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / Re: Post-Irony (& The New Sincerity)

I lean away from what I call the "Protestant Work Ethic" theory, where a human is only satisfied when they are producing something of value.  While I understand that most people do not want to be the hedonistic meat sacks in "Wall-E", I feel that most people wouldn't do that if their basic survival needs were met.  Some would, of course, since humans come in all flavors -- but once the initial period of relief passed ("I'm gonna sleep all day and get drunk a lot!"), I feel that people would start looking for something to do, independent of "earning money".  And again, many people would indeed want to make more money, but many wouldn't. 

So, the idea of people wanting something other than existentialism or science is understandable, but I don't think a line should be drawn straight from that to "everyone wants a job".

From everything I understand about human nature, this is true. Humans are weird in that we want to work as little as possible, but we become deeply unhappy if we aren't working in some way, whether it's art, design, gardening, hunting, manufacturing, etc.

This is why retired people become depressed and die early if they don't have a satisfying hobby or other pursuit.

It's also why people have hobbies, at all; job isn't satisfying the need to produce? Make something up!

We, essentially, have a fundamental need for strife. If we have nothing to strive for, we often simply shut down and die.

I'm having late-night drunken thoughts about Buddhism and the bolded statement.

Perhaps, when we no longer have strife to drive us, e.g. we stop struggling ("suffering," in most Buddhist parlance), some part of us figures "Ah ok, we're done here" and quits.

Whether or not this is desirable is up to the individual, I guess. But I didn't choose Discordianism over Buddhism for nothing, I suppose.

This channel was active back in 2007 and then took a literal 9-year hiatus. There are a few videos before this one after the break, but I want to understand the creative mind(s) that produced a brief but intense burst of "Garfield live action enactments" as a schtick, vanishes for nearly a decade, and comes back with this magnum opus.
