Someday I will learn not to mock and lead on crazy people from the Internet, because they don't understand it, and get mad when you shut the game down.

Today was not that day.

You know what I like about old videogames? There's no bullshit of "winning". No Chosen One story. No weepy cutscenes. No checklist of shit you have to do. Only 1-3 hit points, one wrong move and you're dead. You play until you die.

Maybe you get to write 3 letters on the high score list, maybe not. You will *never win*, only die. Just like life.

They are gathering, and they want FLESH!

I'm a digital personality running on an Atari 800, but the rest of you are in danger. Run!

THE FUTURE, 2000-something:

A third of humanity have been genetically engineered into animals. Another third into robots. There is endless war.


Whooo. Right, some furries actually believe they live in the Kevin & Kell setting. Do not engage with their beliefs.

The French Connection lightly spoilery 

Rewatched The French Connection. Technically starts as a Christmas movie, but only one scene references it, and it's gotta be March or so by the end.

Love the chases and the actual investigation. Hackman is such a piece of shit, and Scheider doesn't get enough screen time to balance him. I have a hard time believing the cops reassembled the car well enough not to tip the French off.

Never read the (non-fiction) book, maybe I should, see how much the film makes up.

Pretty much every part of this pisses me off:

Second test flight: “I just don’t think we have enough information at this point," Bridenstine said. "We’d be very premature to make any announcements regarding that."

I'm still extremely excited for Animal Crossing New Horizons, but Nintendo's user-hostile cloud policy sucks so much shit it could create a whole new shit continent in the Pacific to do live-action Animal Crossing/Battle Royale on.

ACNH doesn't do cloud saves. Except sometime in the distant future, it will IF you keep paying Nook^W Nintendo for "Switch Online". Supposedly if you lose your Switch they'll let you restore it to a new one… but you can't just move it to another device.

Is my bug this enormous 4-way boolean test? I sure thought so for 15 minutes.

Nope, I mistyped 'unknown as 'unkown.

Mostly pointless, they didn't shoot the script and the actors were petulant babies, but:

"Famously, Smith turned down the role of Neo in The Matrix in order to play Jim West, a decision that, with the gift of hindsight, looks inexplicable"

So we could've had a Matrix with an actor who can speak beyond a monotone stoner "whoah", and not had the Wild Wild West movie?! Darkest timeline.

(the rows labelled ? I have seen in real content, but I don't know what system they were for. I hate these people most of all.)

You think computer fragmentation's awful, this is just the avoid-damage AC systems I know of in D&D-likes, let alone the many ablative armor systems:

could you please please please please please please consider tagging your US politics tweets ? it’s not that it isn’t outrageous what’s going on it’s just that you’re so overwhelming I run out of outrage for the outrageous things in the country I’m from or the one I live in


Democrats who say "history will judge you!" have no idea who they're talking about.

Republicans don't study history, think Jesus is coming back for the End Times real soon now, like any day, and in any case are trying to start WWIII to fulfill Bible prophecies to bring about those End Times. There is no such thing as history to them.

In the year 2000-something, a massive central network called COMNET links the computers of the world, forming a single global computer system. COMNET, designed to serve the interests of mankind, is managed by the supercomputer, GROSSER. But when GROSSER decides to take over the world, a savior is needed!
A computer-illiterate girl named Yui Kasuga…

Sat down for a minute and had a 3-hour coma nap. Now I'm dragging my tail but conscious at least.
