  2. Explain it to me again, slowly.

    "A bunch of millennials are going to storm Area 51 in four phases. The first and the second waves consists of 'Naruto' runners who are convinced that they can evade bullets that way. People throwing pebbles, and people who bring specialized gear to break drywall. Finally there is a tunneler team"

    And... you do not think this sounds insane ?

    "Also Zuckerberg wants his dad rescued"

    from area 51 ?

    "Yeah"

    **drinks straight from the Whiskey bottle without breaking eye contact**

    "what, you think I am crazy ?"

    Well now that you put it on the table...

    • The classmate who tried to molest me is in my store right now, and it’s not an experience that was particularly traumatizing because luckily I can say he only “tried” to molest me, but it’s still weird. I gotta look at that guy and go “oh right, you tried to molest me”.

      • "I personally don’t actually care that much" - @mrmattimation ... raises eyebrow.

        If I were to lower my standard of things that irk me just a Weee-Little-Bit just 1 setting then I would be taking up a neigh permanent 20 out of 30 font page slots on this website. Meaning that everyone has a tresshold that makes something worth posting/dashing about. Which is the long way around to say "Yeah I actually do think you care"

        But whatever happens next. Try not to bottle it up if you know that somewhere in the future the bottle might explode. After all you already said it was YEARS ago.

      • @drinkingpony yeah, the threshold was “he showed up at my store”. I feel like regardless of whether or not it actually affected me mentally, seeing the guy who tried to sexually abuse me is at least a little bit noteworthy.

    • Oh look, there is drama surrounding 007 again. Not James Bond mind you, just 007. Apparently a woman is going to play the new Bond 007 and not that guy I talked about about a month ago and his unflattering photo.

      Does not really help that clickbait articles go with "Captain Marvel Actor Gets 007 Movie" ( no matter which side of the coin you are on, you know Brie Larson is seen as a flawed everything by the haters ).

      Look people, I just have one thing to say.

      Go home Disney, you are drunk !

      That advice is coming from ME ! Someone with both a really positive deposition towards the hard stuff, and also someone who painted the first Ork ( W40K ) with the wrong primer causing him to look ruggid, badass, awesome, and of African descent.

      • @drinkingpony As a consumer of the new canon (having all the comics that came after the switch) and having only glimpses of experience with the old canon I'm heavily biased. As far as I have gathered the old canon is guilty of several stupid things like clones of Palpatine and Luke and such that appears to be fan-fictiony as well.

      • @adiwan You forgot the clones of Luke named Luuke and Luuuke ( no really ).

        But yeah, fair point. All movies have severe faults and cracks in them. However it took Disney only 2 mainline movies to break the fandom. The two biggest sides seem to be those who absolutely love it and defend it so hard till their mind seems to break ( warning, 2 hour podcast of someone whose mind seems to break defending the movie https://youtu.be/bXs0LXqK2SM ). Those who still come out with movies why it all sucked and why it is all going to hell. I am not even sure if that 'side' is actually truthfull when they shout 'Please make Brie Larson a Jedi, let it all die !' or not.

        Meanwhile I like to see myself as in the middle and heavily in the minority.

        Imagine a kid creating a beautiful sandcastle on a beach only to come back the next day to find out that there is now a squatter playing with 'your' sand castle. Surely you can share, right ? But part of me still goes "You know, this could have been better

    • You know what I would appriciate ? for when I turn my computer to sleep and start meditating or sleeping or something you normally do in silence that my computer does not randomly decide "Hey you know, this would be a great time to do my updates"

      Then after the updates it goes back to load all the things that were previously open, such as YouTube tabs I had put on pause to listen to / watch later. But I guess getting shocked to wide alert on http://rainbowdash.net/url/874866 while Angry Joe rips some game a new one, while at the same time ERB's "Steven Spielberg vs Alfred Hitchcock" and Luis Rossman does a RIP&TEAR on a poor piece of electronics, all together fight for dominance of my speakers.

    • Hmm, Well, Extra Credits did it again. This time they tried to jam the idea of "Nazi's are bad people !" into their talk about video games so hard that they are now about receiving 20 thumbs down for every 6 thumbs up.

      Meanwhile, yeah I agree with the general message behind what they are saying. We must stop trying to normalize the idealisms of Nazi's. However to blame Video Gamers is Jack Thompson levels of insane to me, especially if you see how the arguements are formed.

      Heck I am sure that the fact that there is a president in the U.S.A. who is being called a Nazi like clockwork is doing harm to 'normalize the Nazi's' than a game called "The life of Erwin Rommel, the VR experience"

      No use looking that up either, I just had to think of a stupid game title and I had a brain fart about Fennec Foxes earlier...

      • @drinkingpony Honestly all they can achieve with this is getting nazis to be seen positively in the long run. Think jews for example, they were universally disliked up until wwii, the nazis screwed up so badly with it than they became a group you can't criticize in most of the western world.

        More so since what they call "nazis" have nothing to do with what an actual nazi is. Trump is a good example, he might have not delivered on most of the stuff he promised, but anyone else would be laureate after as US president being one of three main actors in the end of the korean war and restart of diplomatic relationships between the DPRK and the USA. Give it a few decades, and once the groups that screech about Trump cease to exist, he'll be seen in an overwhelmingly positive way in historical retrospectives. If these idiots conflate the words "nazi" and "trump", the logical conclussion is that he's a nazi, and therefore nazis are a boogeyman, okish people that are hated by fanatical groups.

      • @nerthos You know, I agree with you. But you should probably go watch the video. Heck go with the straight up reply video of this guy https://youtu.be/KngleLumR_U .

        I guess the biggest problem is that EC thinks that we should stop to normalize the Nazi's. Those being ACTUAL Nazi's and their ideology, by being extremely patronising to the point of nausea in Multiplayer Games.

        Also to tinker with the matchmaking system to do the opposite of rewarding Nazi's. Which is just a system so insane that the moment you write it down you realize that you punish ALL players because your game has Nazi's in them.

        Also it was stated that because 'safeguards are being eroded', you might not go off of a website like stormfront because you do not mind playing as Hanz Mit Der Flammenwerfer in some game.

        But the birth of a meme, the absolute beginning. "There you are, playing a game, and all of a sudden bam you're a Nazi, you did not ask for this" is golden. I mean, you did buy the game.

    • Just imagine me typing and hating on everything in the episode while trying to steer clear of major spoilers ( or at least anything I think people give more than a rodent's buttocks about ), then ultimately sighing deeply and saying that I'm going back to do some more "mega-loathe-soldering". Which is just like normal soldering except I am doing it out of frustration and it clears my mind, such a purgative excercise. Like meditating, only at the end you get to have something to show for it.

    • Oh for the love of eating solid food... Which is really a thing everyone takes for granted and I am pretty sure Bronn would be able to tell you everything about if he actually breaks his jaw in the books. I digress.

      Just saw S8E5 of GoT. There is SO MUCH wrong with this episodes I can not begin to explain. Though if I had to begin somewhere willy-nilly I guess I would say that Sandor ( The Hound ) and Gregor ( The Mountain ) 'finally' fight. I do say 'finally' because that is just what I wanted (( SARCASM )). So in the fight Gregor slowly takes off armor by one means or the other untill Sandor is finally smart enough to stab him in the eyesocket, at which point the one who is stabbed just pulls it out.

      So Sandor just jumps at Gregor in a full on tackle hug scenario and breaks through the remainder of the tower wall and fall to their doom.

      Then in the "Making of the episode" they talk about how Sandor overcame his fear of fire to kill a bigger foe.

      How far did you think they fell ?

    • What I would like to know is how in the world I lost a LED belonging to a DIY kit. Perhaps more importantly, just what do I need to know in order to place a LED in a circuit ? If I look at the diagram/scematic of the thing it seems to pretty much jam a LED and a 10K resistor straight between DC12-18 and what I can assume is ground. But who am I kidding, I have no idea how to read this.

    • In the past few days I watched S8E3 and S8E4 of Game of Thrones. To say that I am agitated would be downplaying it.

      No spoiler version would be : Logic is thrown out the window to make cool scenes. Consistency of powers and weaknesses are all over the place, Bran uses his superpowers of watching past present and future to browse designs of wheelchairs, Characters get to do AMAZING feats when the camera is not directed at them directly, you see way too many things die to things you can not see, you also see way to many things not die to things you can see and then randomly dissapear just so the audience will scream out the name of their favorite character to see them absolutely fine in the next shot, characters acting stupid for no reason, characters betraying the previous 7 seasons by means of storytelling. But perhaps the biggest 2... granting every tactician an anyeurism thanks to excessive facepalming... and do not even get me started on Resident Evil goes Game of Thrones. #
