  4. @drinkingpony @scribus It's not really about whether it was a good episode or not, it's about revisionism and a fascist mindset without any of the good parts of fascism, where anything that is deemed not kosher is censored and removed from public records.

    It was an old episode that was relevant for the time it came out, but the kind of individual that complains about things being "problematic" has no sense of nuance, historical significance, context, or anything like that. Some would see anything that doesn't match the current discourse removed entirely.

  5. @drinkingpony Broad strokes: the general atmosphere of the internet and this outrage culture we're going through. Specific instigator: The Simpsons pulling a Stalin on the Michael Jackson guest star episode and deleting it entirely from the catalog as though it had never happened. You know, exactly like Warner Bros DIDN'T DO about their WWII propaganda shorts.

  6. @drinkingpony Huh. I found nothing about that in my brief and ultimately distracted-by-tangents search.

  7. @drinkingpony I want to say "accelerated decrepitude," but I'm just stealing that from "Blade Runner." It was along those lines, though.

  10. @drinkingpony Nah, I just had nothing to do, the weather was nice, and I felt like building something. Might end up building another since a friend of mine asked me how much I'd charge for one though.

    It's a bit heavy for acting apparel anyway

  12. @drinkingpony Was it a current show at the time, or were you catching re-runs even back then?

  14. @drinkingpony I emptied my room at my parent's apartment in the last weeks and I had a room that was about 4m by 2m big (about 13.1 feet by 6.5 feet ) and it was filled to the brim with videogames, comics and just stuff. I have an own apartment and it is miraculously cluttered as my former room. I'm an IRL Tetris packing master.

  15. @drinkingpony https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2826950 Find someone with a 3D printer and let it print out for you for a small fee. I'd print it out for you but the shipping costs would be too high for its novelty value (about 16€ for shipping a small parcel worldwide for me).

  20. @drinkingpony Custom firmware is something cool indeed. In the case of the PS3 I have a friend with a CFW and I can buy it from them when they don't want it anymore. I already have a hardware-modded PS2, a softmodded Wii, and a softmodded XBox (original), and a flash-cart equipped NES, Gameboy, and Nintendo DS.

  21. @drinkingpony I don't own a Switch (yet). Somewhere down the line I'd get that. I'm in a position where I am comfortable to wait until I can get it for cheap enough. 80% of all my consoles and games are bought used. I'll get a Switch when it's out of production (maybe used or heavily discounted and new) and buy the games for at least half the price they were originally sold for. Right now you can easily obtain Mario Kart 8 for 1/3 of the price of the Switch version for Wii U, although it doesn't contain the DLC stuff.

  23. @drinkingpony I was just joking about the word "kero", japanese onomatopeia for the sound a frog makes, hence characters named things like "kero kero keroppi" or "keroro gunsō", as the guy uses the word as his alias.

    I would never use a term like "cultural appropiation" outside of a joke.

  24. @drinkingpony Yeah. The price between new and used is so similar that I went for the copy in new condition which happened to be at the same price as it was on release.

  26. @drinkingpony pretty sure the fact that I’ve posted on this website immediately disqualifies me from ever holding any sort of elected office.

  27. @scribus @drinkingpony If you have a very good grasp of Spanish you can read Portuguese just fine, that's how I used to keep up with Mushi's faceplace posts and stuff he linked.

    You absolutely won't be able to understand spoken Portuguese though, specially from Brazil.

    Do ask mush mush about it if interested, he might have some sites detailing what's going on, and I'm not against roughly translating from Portuguese to English if needed.

  28. @drinkingpony I do have a personal feud with this Kero guy for appropiating the term. That word belongs to frogs and frog allies, and using it in a pedophilic wolf context is cultural appropiation.

  29. @drinkingpony Of course. I don't want a witch hunt or anything. There are several groups I dislike but I've made a point of believing in justice since I joined here, and dropping justice in favour of tribalistic glee at the other group going under the bus would jeopardize all the effort I've made to be recognized as an honourable person.

  30. @drinkingpony Learn Spanish, and then drink until it turns into Portugese?
