Apple Talk / Re: Open Bar: Drinks are on the Supreme Court

First day at the new office was OK.  Probably would have been better if I had more than 3 hours sleep and wasn't learning how to use an obtuse database that is getting discarded in 3 months.  On the plus side, apart from "following basic instructions" and "not drooling like an idiot", the day wasn't too hard.  Office is nice and cheery and modern and, unlike the poor saps on the floor below, I don't have to call random people and interrogate them about law firms all day.

I also see the country went insane in my temporary absence.

I had to do something like this for my new job. One of the online training modules for our database was "click on the News & Updates list and submit the top release as your assignment." The top story was that the database was being replaced.

It was 35F in Tucson this morning and everyone died.  :cry:

Well yeah what did you expect, it's freezing over; you people elected a Democrat.

"Hey Williams I heard your mom's still online."

"Yeah well someone's got to follow your mom on Insta."

"HAH! Anyway, you going to Rob's later?"

Cram shuffles over to the Internet in his bathrobe.

"You're still here? It's over. Go home. Go."

I was using my custom box to mine Necronomicoin, until it crawled up the wall and screamed in 1000 voices. :(

Jesus, I can’t believe I sent CU to Sketch Park.  :lulz:

I could have gotten him killed.

Has anyone heard from him lately? Maybe I did.

I can't remember if Felix and CU were the same person, or if they just ran together, but he's gone full Alex Jones/QAnon over on FB.  It's a queasingly impressive amount of self-deception.

Felix = CU.

And this hardly surprises me.  He was always looking for a cause.

I am pretty sure you are incorrect that Felix was CU. I met CU.

I could be wrong, but CU had a name prior to CU, and I could have sworn it was Felix.

Just bumped an old thread with CU’s big ol’ mug... looks like his former user names were “fictionpuss” and “FP”.

The median age of PD went up 5 years because of this conversation, you adorable old codgers.  :lulz:

Is this the kinder, gentler Roger I've been hearing so much about?

No, Roger was killed when he forgot his safe word during the Recent Unpleasantness.

Honestly, people.  When a man comes by to offer a non-excuse, the least you can do is not mistake him for some dead fucker that nobody really liked anyway.  Roger was laid to rest in the great plastic island in the pacific.  By which we mean, "we pushed the stiff out of the cargo door and wouldn't you know he managed to hit dead center."  Horrible, right?  He's basically interred in a mass of disposable diapers and water bottles.  And when the UV finally decays all of that plastic, centuries after we're gone, his immaculate and incorrupt body will just sort of float around like a message in a bottle.  You never know where it's going to turn up, though it won't really be the same if everyone is already dead and there's nobody to traumatize.

This is sad. Surely all of that back hair is more dangerous to sea life than the entirety of the trash island.

Found myself in a Brooks Brothers store today.

Someone kill me before the metamorphosis is complete.  :tgrr:

The minute you exit the store whatever was in your bag turned into a black tee and a pair of hobnail boots. The universe has ways of self correcting.

Is GOOD ENERGY visible from SPACE?

You wouldn't believe how many searches this thread is getting, either there was piece on the tv or someone has developed a working prototype forcefield.

An article about this on r/TIL made the Reddit front page last week. My guess is it would be part of that bump?

I think I picked up Witcher 3 for like, £5 on Steam a while back.  Should actually give it a try, since my GPU can now probably handle it.

The first two are good, not as polished (lol) but are worth a playthrough just to get involved in the world. Then Witcher 3 happened. I don't know what the fuck went on with CD Projekt Red between two and three, but I hope they can keep the magic going with Cyberpunk 2077.

I think you'd really appreciate the story of all three. There's a lot of political maneuvering, everybody operates in grey areas, and seemingly minor decisions have a tendency come back later with significant consequences.

It's just odd that this is the tipping point for gamer outrage, like hey it's okay to throw us over a barrel with loot boxes, half finished games, rushed AAA titles, main game content withheld as DLC, dishonest gameplay trailers and promises - but don't withhold Darth Vader.

If it were a legitimate push to be smarter consumers I'd be all for it. By all means let's stop pre-ordering everything and quit buying games just because that's what everybody else is playing. But the demand here seems to be to have our hype based game grabs fulfilled without condition.

This is why I only play single player games that are 2-5 years old and I buy on sale. Witcher 3 is going great, everyone, really loving the Blood and Wine expansion.
