More importantly: how does Obama invade a state he already owns?

That's like claiming I illegally broke into my own house.  It's retarded.  I know Texas likes to think it's not America, at least when a black man is in charge, but it is. 

The South lost, and it really fucking needs to get over that.

There's an interesting optical illusion, where if you look at the South from Northern states, it's the Confederacy. But if you look at it from Mexico, it's "AMERICA where we speak ENGLISH also please pick my vegetables." It's like the blue-black/white-gold dress meme, but for a hundred years.

When I am rich I'm gonna build bullet trains all over North America. The ones that go to places I like will be private, and all of the other ones eventually end up in Tuscon, but never leave.

When I am rich I will shop at Whole Foods.

When I am rich, I will have heating coils installed on the necks of giraffes.

Because their coffee is cold before it gets to their stomachs.  You never thought about that, did you?  No, you only think of yourselves.

Just seeing this now, and for some reason it's cracking me the fuck up. :lol:

There is nothing actually wrong with expressing that you are interested in a person. People do it all the time, and if it doesn't work out they get over it. It's pretty normal to be attracted to friends. The problem occurs when that is the only thing you see in that person, and when a rejection leads to resentment.

I have been there, and I would be very much surprised if most people haven't. I remain in love with a friend, and we are both aware of it, and when we see one another we enjoy each others' company and talk about trivialities like any two people do.

Your results may vary. Your male friend's advice may be the best one, because as a third party he probably has a better assessment of the situation.

Yeah! I think by "they get over it" I really meant "it continues to burn for years and casual conversations feel like you're screaming and puking up your soul but it's a good feeling because it's messy and it reminds you that you're human."

I really did not convey that part properly.   :lulz:

A lot of my friendships have an undercurrent of "I'll always be kinda in love with you". Some are exes, some are people I started to date but it didn't go, some are people I've never dated and never will.

Romantic love is not exclusive to romantic relationships.

Yeah... yeah. That. All of this.

This series rules.

I started Planescape: Torment a few weeks ago and was immediately blown away by the apparent depth and how much they didn't give a shit about making a fantasy game that was mainstream-friendly. I find it more immersive to play in vast, complicated, dense settings that I don't understand because that's basically the same as real life.

And then I got very quickly sidetracked by blowing my tax return on Bloodborne (and a PS4 to play it on). It's a stellar game in some respects, but it has some flaws that are hard to look past. Loading screen times are just one such flaw.

This would certainly go a long way towards explaining why I struggled towards the end of school. My friends were in different majors and I didn't really socialize very much within my field.

53
Even though I was learning super fun stuff in the last two years, school was making me not really want to be alive anymore towards the end.

You're definitely doing a lot better than I did, you'll be fine. Kick everything's ass.

That ad was funny you terrible bore.

He authentically doesn't get the humor, which is fine. He lacks the cognitive basis for understanding what makes it funny. Where it stops being fine and becomes insufferable is his insistence that because he doesn't find something funny, it is objectively not funny to anyone.

It's always good to be told when I've misinterpreted my own opinion.

Sustainable LARPing?  Sounds interesting, but how do you keep the larpers in the ground once you plant them there?

It's complicated, but essentially you build a feedback system that redirects the energy of their whining into forcing them deeper into the earth.

Fun little read about (I guess) the difference between the mind and the body and how that divide relates to those trying to find 'enlightenment' and the difficulties of quantifying such things.

It was entertaining, but ultimately I felt it was pointless.

There is no mind/body divide, the idea that there is is merely an artifact of consciousness, which is an emergent property driven by the complex interactions of our nervous system.

:awesome:

PeeDee, I bring you greetings from the land of Jobs That Aren't Imploding In A Cataclysmic Orgy of Incompetence.

Things are fine, mostly.

Fuckery in my life has been largely relegated to a new LARP venture that I have been (barely) helping Cram get off the ground. Basically some spag with almost no experience in running these kinds of events and a handful of cash got a whole bunch of us whipped up into a frenzy of excitement over this New Thing he was gonna run.

Predictably, the only thing keeping it from totally imploding has been the efforts of experienced people fixing everything. Now it looks like we might actually be on track to running something sustainable.

Did you know that if you sync up Dark Side of the Moon with the Bible it tells you precisely where Jesus's moon base is?

The Bible is on vinyl?

Wait, OF COURSE it is. I wish to hear this.

"A member of the Scottish National Antarctic Expedition plays the bagpipe for an indifferent penguin, 1904."




Sometimes, I think the human species has really earned its place on this planet. This image and the caption I found with it really convince me of that.
