So, an interbutts hero has challenged me to a fight in January, when he will fly in to Phoenix from Methville, MN, to visit his sister.

I have agreed to meet him out back of the Meetrack.  As the challenged party, I claimed the choice of weapons, and elected to use crowbars.  And stipulated that the loser gets handed over to the perverts.

He suddenly wants rules.   :lulz:

It's like kids just aren't serious about having a good time anymore.  I feel ripped off.

Loser get handed over to the perverts?

Can you elaborate?

"Meetrack" really says it all.

Look up the Yelp reviews if you're still unsure.

Holy crap, I just did.

I must make a pilgrimage.

Despite the yoga pants/bath towel sections, I have to say, if you're a fan of horror, that Until Dawn is pretty good. 

I really can't say too much without spoiling the plot, but it's very story driven, multiple branching choices, QTEs for action.  But the story...it's a pretty good story, more than good enough to make up for the uninspired gameplay aspects.  Maybe pushing credibility in a couple of places, but taken in all together...yeah, I approve.

I've been watching a playthrough, I'm actually quite impressed with it. Might be enough to make me spend money (as opposed to spending my money on used copies of Silent Hill 2 & 3, because I'm on a weird Silent Hill kick and the HD Collection is shit on a stick)

I'm gonna regret this, but what is a clock truther?

People obsessed with whether Ahmed Mohammed actually "invented" a clock or merely rehoused a ready made clock/clock components in a new unit.

May also refer to general conspiracy theories that he did it for "free stuff" or "attention" or "his dad made him do it because crazy Muslims, amirite?"  Not kept up to date on that aspect of it.

What's everyones stance on the clock shit?
You full sjw or full pol?
I just think it's a giant overreaction on both parts, he shouldn’t of been arrested even though it looks a lot like a bomb, yet he shouldn’t be getting money for making  a clock at 14 either.

1) "Shouldn't have"
2) There's an awful lot of people making a shit ton of money that probably shouldn't be. Why are we weighing in national judgement on a teenager?
3) Who the fuck is giving him money anyway?

Most of the judging I've seen going on towards Ahmed sounds an awful lot like people who are desperate to sound poignant and have their moral opinions be weighty and meaningful. So far, unsuccessfully.

Cain was the unfortunate host of a multi-day Facebook thread in which this subject was discussed at hideous length. The "truther" side was mostly being fought for by an imbecile who, despite probably having brain damage, I found myself tragically unable to muster sympathy for. It was ugly.

The short of it is:

(a) Ascribing adult motivations to a 14-year-old is fucking idiotic.
(b) There is absolutely nothing substantive to indicate that he was doing this for attention, or money.
(c) The authority figures involved very obviously knew they weren't dealing with a bomb threat, because any school would evacuate in the event of even a slightly credible bomb threat.
(d) EVEN IF he totally did throw together a hack project for the purposes of raising hell and garnering attention, then he did a great job and we should be supporting him for trolling the authorities. And if he DOES somehow get money from this fiasco, then J.R. "Bob" Dobbs would be proud and we should follow his example. There is no way to look at this that makes Ahmed come out looking bad to me.

That could very well be the most "America!" photograph ever.

Great googly moogly, I left for 3 days and THIS happened?

Very sorry to hear about the troubles, Roger and EoC. Here's hoping for the best outcome.

It's actually about ethics in clockmaking.

 :lulz:

That guy is so beyond a damage case it's almost not even funny.

Except that it's still totally funny.

I can't believe how much mileage I'm getting out of this. It's been a while since I've seen someone try so hard to argue a non-point.

Now now, we can't be be hard on PDS just because his brain was obviously put in sideways.

Yeah, well MY high school, while literally designed by an architect who specialized in prisons and was frequently mistaken for a prison by people new to the area, was organizationally set up like a public education facility in an extremely wealthy and paranoid nation.

I think we went to the same school.

You went to school in Hawai'i? :lulz:

I could fight in a ground war.  Once, I ate six chili dogs.  In a row!

I can eat a whole Chilotle burrito in under 12 bites. I'm basically Rambo, but cooler.

Is "read the edited post" a neurotic tic for you or something? None of your edits ever make your point any stronger. And do you go back and edit EVERY post for fuck's sake? You know there's a Preview button you can check before posting, right?

This guy seriously needs to spend some more time with educational materials. This is both facepalmy and hilarious.

If he actually read the entire Principia before posting that would have been a start.
I read some of it and might read the rest in time. I just do not like waiting.

Ok, so you're a child and you skim materials for things that validate your worldview and don't absorb anything beyond a superficial level. This is not surprising.
