RT Trailer unseen, a logline:

"James Rhodes, after the death of his friend, Tony Stark, reprises his armored identity as War Machine after learning Stark's armor technology is moving through the criminal underworld & vows to prevent the perversion of Stark's legacy."


CyberPunk 2077 vague plot allusions 

Not sure about the choice and "class story" differences yet. I'm playing Street Kid and saw someone play Corporate, and those seem to pretty quickly converge on the same path we saw in the trailers. So not sure how much replayability there will be, though they could always diverge again later.

Dialog trees are optimized for keyboard efficiency, but the axes are 90 degrees wrong, and some stuff is on an annoyingly short timer. The dialog trees are very flat, mostly linear.

So yeah, I bought Cyberpunk. It's really pretty. The story feels like it's going somewhere, and the world seems well fleshed-out. Had a few moments of slight body horror during the first upgrade, but that's likely more because I'm chicken, not because it's especially gory.

The UI is ... not very good. I think part of it is intentional Cyberpunk-iness, but it turns me off the game a bit. It's very busy, and the skill tree is designed in a weird dual-use style that took me a while to "get".


Do men who call women ”witches” as an insult not realize how cool witches are?


Of course I thought of this warning about attempting to parse HTML using regular expressions, which I commend as worth a few moments of your time even if you do not know what those things are

yever think about how there are probably chemists, paid by building material and art supply companies, who have spent immense amounts of their lives watching, very intently, paint dry?

Accidentally took ibuprofane and I can't fucking stop swearing

discussion of dick pics 

dude: [dick pic]
dude: hi
me: not impressed. you can do better
dude: what do you mean?
me: it's an awkward angle, doesn't really give me a sense of scale. not sure about the lighting either. it's like there's no thought in the composition.

doesn't really tell the viewer a story, it's just like "dude grabbing his junk" okay? boring.

This might be the most talented man in the world that shit blew my mind



If you call off sick you are not leaving your co-workers short-handed.

Your boss did that.

They refused to hire enough employees.
Didn't make plans to cover sick workers' shifts.
Didn't include your human needs in their calculations.

It's not your fault. You deserve sick days.


im sorry in being a comedy nerd here 

@triz Ive heard jokes described as a release of tension. Something unexpected happened but its all okay!

and if you're in an unsafe enviroment, that tension is never going to be released. its why an 'offensive' joke from someone you trust can be funny because you know there is no malice behind the pun. But even a milder 'joke' from someone you suspect believes what they're saying... thats not going to be funny.
