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.

64
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.

But some viewers of Stargate:SG1 believe that the pyramids are early Earth civilization attempts to imitate Goa'uld Ha'tak motherships.

Lets not jump to any hasty conclusions here.

If Startate is involved, I say we should jump to conclusions as fast as possible. Except for the seasons after Richard Dean Anderson left.

This is very true, especially the last part.

If you want to talk about fabricated history, I vote the existence of Stargate: Universe.  Complete fabrication, never happened.

Frankly, it's an embarassment that anyone believed it in the first place.

I knew there was a reason I never bothered to put him on ignore.

I might anyway, though, because his forum signature is an abomination. Literally nothing in it is good or interesting.

Unbelievable! You mean to say that pyramids are a really convenient way to stack up material in such a way that it won't fall over for a long time?!

That's just crazy enough to be true...
