  1. Really think Adam Sandler shoulda been the next Doctor. Doctor Jew.

    • @zeldatra I heard the BBC passed because the songs he tried out just didn't fit with their vision of the Doctor. I guess acoustic-guitar-backed manchild moans about "timey-wimey" just appeal to a very select audience.

    • @scribus was really looking forward to hearing the doctor talk like an actor whose entire understanding of mental disability comes from very special episodes of the 1980s

  6. Got today my first scammer on my company phone. They spoofed a local phone number (probably a SIP gate) and called probably from India, as the caller had an Indian accent and spoke English. They said they were from Microsoft and my computer had a "problem". I didn't hesitate very long and hung up. It'd be funny to waste their time but it's also my time too that would have been wasted.

  7. Now, I, fully vaccinated AND having caught the virus, personally am proceeding through life as I did prior to the pandemic, with the exception that I wear a mask to work and in crowded places still, but the idea that there should be zero precautions taken whatsoever and people just shouldn’t care about it anymore is frankly incredibly shortsighted.

    • @scribus The blatantly-rude and incorrect comment "we can skip the “muh freedom” dog and pony show, we all know you don’t actually care about that" is incorrect for many reasons, but one in particular that can be proven here: This site runs on GNUSocial (previously known as statusnet), and I learned about this website through exploring GNU software that I do not usually use. I ise Free software and reccomend it to my peers because I very much do caer about freedoms and liberties, unlike the aforementioned. All of the aspects of my "rat" are perfectly comprehensible, but I would understand that you would be confused as the StatusNet link now directs to an unrelated website.

  13. gonna use Australia instead, what the Potato Knishes are they gonna do about it

    about 3 months ago from web
    • @zeldatra Better hope the Emus don't rise again

      about 3 months ago in context
    • @scribus the big disincentive to using Australia now, besides the emu uprising, is that it ruins a joke in Swole Foods. One script has a borderline senile old man recounting a battle he fought in Australia; with his senility being the joke. But then a script that’s placed later in the timeline has a character who works for the government mention the same event, making it more credible; a third script then finally reveals that in this universe, NATO fought an atomic war against Australia. I might just generically say “a country in the East” or something like that instead.

    • @zeldatra Just about the exact inverse of what I'm trying to do. Want them to believe a near-future cyberpunk urban center, with human/animal hybrids, which eventually develops real-deal Magic and ends up making contact with >3rd dimensional intelligence? Start with something standard, like a murder procedural, so they're not entirely flippin' lost lol

    • @scribus the way I see it - since *my* universe is usually grounded pretty firmly in reality, starting with some really crazy grape off the bat means nothing’s off the table. Futurama’s first season goes from 1999 New York to literally the edge of the universe, so for the entire rest of the show they could go literally anywhere in between.

      about 4 months ago in context
    • @scribus could tell the guy was getting paid extra to push a particular brand too… he showed me the most expensive one first and was like “this one’s good for snow”, then showed me a seemingly identical one from another brand and was like “this one’s ok too, I guess… it’s made for all weather conditions… but it’s really not as good, I wouldn’t even bother”

  19. OK so maybe Sims 4 is not total and complete garbage, but I still need extensive cheats and mods just to get the basics handled and they broke too many fundamental things into way too many individual DLCs, and EA is still knee-deep trashwater

  21. Hey, if you have HBO Max or access to a cable subscription: I have some friends who worked on Smiling Friends, [adult swim]’s new animated horror comedy. The sixth episode features a Bakshi-inspired character who was animated by some friends of mine, but the whole show in general is very funny. The show hits HBO Max on Feb 9th, and if you have cable, you can watch the entire series on adultswin.com right now. If you could give it a watch, that’d be real cool, because we really wanna see a second season get greenlit and online viewership is pretty much how they decide what gets renewed these days.

    about 5 months ago from web
    • @scribus I may or may not have had COVID over Christmas, couldn’t get tested though because no appointments were open. Whatever I did have is gone now so I guess it’s moot now, but I’m one of the only people at work who didn’t get a booster shot and the other one who didn’t was out sick before and after me, so it’s an easy conclusion to come to.

      about 5 months ago in context
    • @zeldatra Ex GF reports 65% of people at her Xmas are now infected, with the boosted faring the best so far. Shame is, it's a total bone trying to get the booster. My grandma was told by her doctor that the earliest appointment was February; then, at Walgreen's, the guy in line behind her asked the cashier about boosters and she jumped in on the spot, no waiting! I got mine, no appointment, from the CVS in Target, but my brother went to (a different) Walgreen's even with no line, and was told to make an appointment.

    • @scribus If you have the discs, yes. If not, there are no legal ways to get it digitally at ALL anymore. EA took it off of Origin because they were no longer supporting it and only previous owners can download it. For a while there was a product code you could put in to trigger a download but I think k it’s been taken off now.

    • @zeldatra Damn. It seems that if I can source a pre-2012 disc for Sims 3 (2009 release) I can play without Origin, but I don't know if the expansions will just put me back in the same place :-/
