He then said, “Playing a game without scoring — even if you suck at something — is so anti-human. It’s like scoring is part of your DNA."

Gutfeld is so stupid man I can’t believe I used to like him

Yeah a game without a scoring system is anti-human, that’s why we famously never play such games with our children. What’s your ELO in peek-a-boo, Greg? You absolute dweeb? Man I can’t wait to get back to my ranked play jigsaw puzzle at home. Can’t wait to beat my brother at D&D this week.

Haha but really my favorite quote is

Critics who treat ‘adult’ as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.

Really helps me feel better about the fact that I’m a 28 year old man who exclusively watches anime

The story goes, or the way that I was told, there was a king that always felt too high and then he felt too low. And so he called all his wise men to the hall, and he begged them for a gift to end the rises and the falls. But here’s the thing—they came back with a ring. It was simple, and was plainly unbefitting of a king, and engraved in black—well it had no front or back, but there were words around the band that said “just know this too shall pass.”

He’s also easy to read. Too often I see a comment with this much text and lose interest instantly, but I didn’t even notice that this comment doesn’t even fit on my screen until I started typing this

Former Blizzard President Thinks Tipping Game Creators Is Great Idea (80.lv)

By now, everyone in the world knows that American tipping culture is getting out of hand. That doesn’t mean you can’t introduce another way of “supporting” creators. Mike Ybarra, the former president of Blizzard, shared his desire to tip developers of especially enjoyable games....

I’ve felt that way that too, but I’ll cut my fingers off before I say I “tipped” Digital Extremes or Tactical Adventures or Eric Barone when I intentionally paid more than I needed to for their games to show support

Interesting stuff in Matthew. If every Christian lived as if the book actually mattered, the world would be a much nicer place.

The cool thing about D&D lore is that we’re absolute fucking nerds. BG3 takes place in 1492 DR, and while Honor Among Thieves doesn’t have a canonical date, it’s estimated to take place in the late 1490’s to early 1500’s DR

I haven’t liked Nintendo since they decided to just take 30% of all the money Gary Bowser ever makes for the rest of his life, for the crime of modifying hardware that people own so that they can use it however they see fit.

Just another reminder that Nintendo and the Pokemon Company both hate your guts. They see you as an obstacle between them and your money, and they’d kill you if they thought it profitable. Pirate everything. It’s always morally correct.

The only tangible difference between a Biden presidency and a trump presidency is that LGBT folks and minorities will have a much, much worse time under Trump, but fuck them gays, right? Better to let them die in jail than vote for the guy that won’t throw them in jail

Do you think being incredibly stupid is a prereq for being a raging leftist or something?

Project 2025, stupid. Letting Trump win means no progressive wins again in this country. Anti progress.

starman2112,
@starman2112@sh.itjust.works avatar

Yeah, you could vote for someone who isn’t going to win (voting this way helps Trump win)

They may ask that, but the answer is “no, appealing to the 0.15% of marxist-leninist voters would lose me 1% of my voter base”

I sure hope you’re a cishet white man, because otherwise this attitude is going to make your life worse when Trump wins and makes your life worse

If it makes you feel better, the oldest AMV is from over 40 years ago

If you’re older than that… Sorry

Alright then, just throw up your arms, keep encouraging cops to fuck up/frame people, and pat yourself on the back because, again, as far as you are concerned, out of sight out of mind as long as there isn’t a death on my conscious. Decades of torture, that’s fine, as long as you don’t need to see it.

What is controversial about the idea that we shouldn’t kill people? How does wanting to abolish the death penalty in any way equate to saying we should encourage cops to fuck up and frame people?

Obviously I’m in favor of more widespread changes to the criminal justice system to make it more focused on rehabilitation than retribution, since the latter has proven itself ineffective at dealing with crime. But until then, one step we could take is letting innocent people out, regardless of how long they’ve been in. Do you actually think it better to kill someone who’s been wrongfully imprisoned for decades than to let them go?

Obviously I’m in favor of reforming the police structure. What makes you think I don’t want those cops and firefighters held responsible? You’ve taken an incredibly uncharitable interpretation of my views and argued against it instead of actually addressing the things I believe. I shouldn’t have to say “the entire justice system needs reformed” in my comments about ways that we should reform the justice system. I think my assertion that any criminal can be rehabilitated implies that we should change from retribution to rehabilitation.

The reason the death penalty is so expensive is because we need to be extremely damn sure that we’re taking a proverbial eye from the right person. Around 4% of people sentenced to death are later found to be innocent. The only ways to make it cheaper are to remove the appeals process which inevitably leads to innocent people dying, or to raise the standard of evidence required for a death penalty to a point where we essentially abolish it anyway.
