  1. Well, my search of Overwatch vs Paladins led me through some weird hole that I am now sad that I never got to play Gigantic.

    Video that got me 'there' :

  2. Media today...

    "We are just going to edit an article changing the 'grooming' Russians to 'grooming' Republicans"

    ( 5 minutes later )

    "Oh no we got caught red handed... Damn you archiving sites !!!"

    source 1 ( Russia ) :
    source 2 ( Republicans ) :

    Yet these people ( Journalists as a broad stroke ) are wondering why the modern type of consumer is not buying what they are selling anymore. Well maybe it is because you can not even get a damn story straight.

  6. Someone just sat me down so I could watch .

    TMW you do not know if you should actually laugh out loud or not, who knows the person showing it to you was a devout CAD.

    He wasn't tho. I got to empty a bucket of laugh right then and there. Boy I tell you, that was a tense moment tho. I was not sure how much cropped up laughed my bucket would hold before overflowing.

  7. @scribus Well, if I cut out all the nasty, it is not that nasty... ( wow, that might be the dumbest thing I have ever said )

    But just think of the most stereotype "Hardcore Christian, hardcore recycle, 'My opinion is better than anyone elses'-spouting, knitting needles toting" mom you can think of.

    Well, yeah, in that light it does not sound bad. Untill either of the following happens ;

    A : Little Timmy discovers the Internet ( and search engines )

    B : Vaccination rollout day at school ( because that is not a hot button topic in the modern world )

    C : Little Timmy is not happy with the thick sheep-wool socks he got for his birthday ( Since Little Timmy wanted a NINTENDO SIXTYFOUR ( ) )

  8. @adiwan Poor woman. On the brighter side of things I guess that I just won a bet with someone.

    I think it went like "Oh man there is NO WAY that famous people can take so much selfies that they compromise their own security" "Wanna bet something like that happens before 2020 ?" "Oh you're on"

    Also we may have been talking about this before

    Then again I am talking about a conversation that happened, what ? 4 years ago ?

  9. I just saw the thing and the first thing I googled did not let me down. Image inserted here.

    "But it was revealed the 20th of last month"

    Yeah but I was busy doing LITTERALLY ANYTHING ELSE. Apple is a joke

  10. @scribus I technically have. No it was not shot on camera, but here is an incident of what happened prior. Oddly enough noone thought to up security around him for some reason

    I happened to be in the Netherlands when he was killed. He would have been voted the Prime Minister if he would have lived through the election process because enough people still voted for him even though he was dead.

    For normal civilian life nothing happened that day which was out of the ordinary.

    Meanwhile a friend of mine lived through the 2016 Turkish coup d'etat attempt while being in Ankara. Which was frightning for ALL the reasons you could think of.

    "Ohh, tanks are too big for pedestrian roads, wait hold on, ITS COMING RIGHT FOR US !"

  11. @scribus I think I kinda see what you mean, but in the same breath it was not Twitter that got scrutinized after a certain madman besmirched one of my favourite Initial D songs somewhere over in New Zealand. Those were 8Chan, Kiwifarms, Facebook, Discord and 9gag.

    Actually Discord is having a really double reason there.

    Not to mention that there are enough people around that hate the Twitter Verified Blue Checkmark ( ) seeing it as a "blue pill" or "Loony Lefty approved club"

    It is actually that specific part where I think you are wrong when you say "Twitter is a single ecosystem. There are no groups," ( @mrmattimation @notice/5464941) . But you are right in that it's like a cocktail party with everyone, there is no structural division. Just a battle over who has the most trending hashtag. Unless if you want to count popularism and realize that if you are a nobody with the greatest thing to say, you will still be ignored.

  12. Oh no, Steam lied to me about the installation/download time. Either that or it did not go up while I was playing a game.

    Wait, that was not on ? [ uploads PNG ] that thing in yellow. I guess that means it is on a per-install basis and not on a per-account basis.

    Thanks a lot Steam. I mean it is not like the game which I was playing, which was Oxygen Not Included ( ) requires ANYTHING from the internet or the hard-drive. Seen as the only thing it really requires is a CPU and RAM, like a cutesie version of Dwarf Fortress, in space ! :D

  14. Why are people in that twitter thread sharing a picture of the 1972 election and treating it like a victory ? ( )

    I mean if it is a quip about how Trump is a crook then they pretty much say 25% of the people inside of the U.S.A. to be stupid ( 56% of America voted, out of which roughly half voted for Trump ).

    You garner no good will with those people, and you want those people to NOT vote Trump in 2020. So that is pretty much the equivallent of a 12 year old throwing a temper tantrum going "YOU'RE WRONG !"

    But hey, I can see their point. But there was a smart and a stupid way to go about it from my perspective. and... "She chose, poorly" ( I kinda thought a Last Crusade quote would fit well, seeing I think the Democrats should rally before they actually become responsible for a Orange-inspired 2nd term )

  15. @scribus I'm sorry, I did not know.

    does a little digging

    I assume you mean

    Hmm, interesting. Well it is mostly red, no denying there. We know why all those little districts are red too, so he is not wrong. But we ALSO know that Hillary got the popular vote in about 65,853,514 vs 62,984,828. So if nothing else it's just party grand standing, like an echo chamber.

    TL;DR : Keep calm, carry on, also laugh whenever you spot people trying to subvert your version of reality by showing you how THEY think the world works. Laugh them right in their stupid face.

  16. @thelastgherkin Why do I have to think of this thing now ? ( 10 second clip from Spaceballs )

    Probably the "grand overlord" part which makes it sound funny.

  17. Ohh, got a hunch and guess what I found at the back of my closet. There is a reason why I hoard useful stuff. It's actually a "couteau à pizza", which I guess gives away its original design plan by the person who designed it. But I used it for cheese mostly ( I do not eat a lot of Pizza, though it works like a dream on the crust. Way better than the Borderland 2 Psycho Pizza-thing, no contest ).

    I guess I probably break some law of recursive functions by using a utensil the wrong way in the correct way that was designed wrongly by stealing an idea from abbey monks. Ohkay I have NO idea how to untangle that.

    Reason why I forgot about my first one ? It got kinda blunt, so I took it with me to some Renaissance faire thingie so I could ask a blacksmith-like person how to proper sharpen it when he gave me some 60 Euro's for it. HAH, like I am going to say no to that.

    Oh right, I am spouting exposition again arn't I ? Apologies.

    Also #'leth

  18. @drinkingpony CAN do a Nelson-laugh, CAN !. But I won't since the whole ordeal has not been "ha-ha" funny in over 2 years now.

    I mean I forgot the name of the city/municipality but that whole Antifa block where the major and the sherrif/police are in on it and it caused more than a bakers dozen of 'broken noses'.

    If I have to point a turning point of 'ha-ha' into 'honk' or 'oh my god how terrible' it would have been that one.

    Oh right, an example of 'honk' would be - Washingtontimes - Cannibalism: Scientist says eating humans could save earth. That being only a low tier-'honk'. Most actual 'honk'-ness is SUPER polarising stuff I would not dream to post about.

    And now I have said 'honk' so many times the word has gone weird on me.

  19. @adiwan Oh wow, I saw that video about 2 hours ago without context.

    Oddly, even though now I know just how tragic of an accident this was. My reaction is pretty much still akin to this

    about 3 months ago from web in context
  20. @scribus Yes, and with good reason. The sheer amount of firearms present in the America's pretty much requires all police officers to have a good training for every possible what if scenario. Just for metermaids alone there is a 6 hour long training every quarter/halfyear just to go over 'what would you do if'-training.

    Whereas in most parts of Western Europe you live really closely together, even in the inner cities apparently to population density ( so getting help is seemingly a lot easier by, Idunno, simply screaming for help ) and the amount of officers that get hurt/injured on the job is rivaling that of librarians. That includes paper-cuts by the way.

    Also for some reason I am now reminded of . I guess I know why, kinda. Still a fun RLM vid to watch :)

  21. @mrmattimation Yes, you are right, the point was offensive jokes.

    Then again, I read your comic thing. I dare to bet on a day of soberness that where I set the bar for what is and is not funny might as well be on a different pane of existence compared to where you put the bar. That is if we were to estimate the distance between the 2 proverbial bars.

    For instance, example in 10 seconds :

    Then again he also did this so he is pretty much also my hero :

    So, ehmm, yeah, for comedy to return to the way it used to be to a time before offensive jokes were not immediatly followed by an unironic round of legitimate twitter hatred. My guess is to go ask Louis CK and David Chapelle.

    I do not quite think the world is ready to separate the art from the artist again anyway.

  22. "If this phonecall is so damning then why did he even release the transcript, only an idiot would do that"

    4 seconds later

    "Like he is the only person that does something so bad, right out there in the open that it makes YOU question, on whether it is actually bad"

    "Right ?"

    Au-contraire, Trevor Noah, I absolutely know it is bad. I mean. I remember the shill words you did for Battlefield V, Tre-Five-Or. ( watch these 25 seconds right here if you want context : ... Watch the whole thing if you can stand a ranting New Yorker for about 40 minutes. Is it worth it ? I'd say yes )

    Tre5or goes on : "it has become somewhat of a political Rorschach test, where Democrats and republicans see what they want to see, it be either a smoking gun, or something to prove innosence. Yet they voted 100-0 on it. ... I think that a guy in a fish costume is WAY better suited as explanation than Tre5or.

    I miss Jon Steward so much T_T

  24. Guide to modern movie criticism

    1 : Say movie is great

    2 : Invalidate everyone's opinion who does not like the movie and mention that "Your opinion is all subjective anyway"

    3 : "You probably have not seen the movie anyway, but if you actually have, then do not go see the next one"

    There, just saved you about an hour, now you do not need to go see ( Network 1901, DaleKnows, MenAreRuiningStarWars ). Oh I also cut out all the sexist pingas.

  25. @mrmattimation Yes it is. I am left thinking about

    Oh and yeh I probably watch way too much weird Potato Knishes on the net

  28. @mrmattimation You still believe in polls ? More importantly you think 8.3 % of Bernie Bro's did not vote ? Yeah I call bull on that. Unless if you want to proclaim that you can expect 30% margin of error out of every and all polls coming out of "the establishment" on a good day ( not even gonna touch the bad days )

    But hey, I will just leave you with this

    and this

  29. @mrmattimation the "non sequitur"-level seems high I am not sure whether to call it a day or to point out that I have NO idea how actual vote totals (from when? 2016? from whom? MSM ?) can be used to establish anything on the level as big as a whole state.

    But hey, if you are willing to still believe that so called 'professionals' are better at predicting at what whole states will probably end up voting when there is also Matt Groening, I am not gonna stop you.

    As for that Trump did worse than Romney and McCain in some area's. Yeah I am willing to believe that, there are things like home states, there are things like actively or passively pandering to special/specific intrest groups.

    Lets not forget the Bernie Bro's ( name ? ) which voted for trump in 2016.

    Oh, or the people from the Rust Belt who vowed to vote democrat in the local elections but Trump for 2020

    Because aparently that's a thing

  30. @mrmattimation Ah, welcome to the wonderfull world of politics where everything is a gamble and nothing makes you happy. If you wanna hear my hot take on your Biden-problem. The guy is 5 years older than Hillary Rodham Clinton and as such I doubt he knows a lot about the modern way of media. So here is what you wait for : If he goes to the swing states and/or potential swing states in the south and he puts on a fake southern accent. Do not vote for the guy, and laugh at him instead. Else, good luck

    I mean just 1 small google away are things like... Oh my I was not expecting to find something so recent as 2019 or

    Meanwhile I can not help but to be curious as to how far the "he might get votes that would otherwise go to Democrats" is said in the "Republican Nominee War Room" (name ?)
