Remnant: From The Ashes. I've been sitting around waiting for friends to want to play with me for so long, I decided I'll do it myself. It's hard solo, but luckily I have a Very Good Boy to keep me company

I also booted up Titanfall 2 again. Still consistently get top of the scoreboard... In Frontier Defense. When there are three other people online playing at the same time.

Stardew Valley is a go-to when my flatmate and I have time to kill. This playthrough I'm dating Haley, and it turns out she's not that bad when you get to know her

A book with pictures detailing all the processes required to make paper, and the schematics for a printing press. I know better than to presume my knowledge of electricity will be of any use, I know better than to think that I understand math better than ancient mathematicians, and I know better than to try to convince them that tiny little creatures are what cause illness. What I can do is jump-start humanity's ascent to modern technology by improving literacy a few centuries early

Damn, now I'm wondering if my decision to bring plans for a printing press is actually less useful than accurate timekeeping

Do you know how air conditioning works? Bring a picture book describing the ideal gas law, and you can jump start the invention of air conditioners

The reason I bring picture books is because I know that I'm gonna die within a week, and anyone more than a few hundred years old would never be able to read English after I'm gone. But if Ptolemy gets his hands on a printing press? Buddy we're exploring the galaxy by Y2K

PNW, forests are pretty. I've long fantasized about dropping my life in Kansas and just moving to Tacoma like I'm a 19th century con artist trying to escape my past

I've started using my favorite podcast as an alarm, along with a lamp plugged into a timer outlet. Works absolute wonders. Set both to turn on half an hour before I want to wake up, and it's just enough to wake me up without ruining my morning

Of course I still have an emergency GET THE FUCK UP YOU'RE GONNA BE LATE FOR WORK alarm, but it's rare that I actually need it

starman2112 ,
@starman2112@sh.itjust.works avatar

That and having a job I don't have to show up on the dot for..

I wish it did that for me when I had one of those jobs... That job is why I still need that "you're gonna be late" alarm. It's hard to kick the habit of staying in bed until I feel like going to work, because I don't feel like going to work

It's always neat reading an article where I can pinpoint the exact moment it goes over my head. In this instance, everything before "torsion" makes perfect sense, and everything afterward is witchcraft and I will be testifying against Cox and Zucker at the trial

My friend and I dropped it pretty quick after we got our main base mostly built. Just the way she goes—we spend all of our free time playing one game at a time. 80 hours in BG3, then 30 hours into Palworld, and we're back to Stardew now.

The awesome thing about it is that unlike some games, our base will still be there when we come back. We'll probably end up playing this off and on for as long as it's still getting updates.

Never resigning because maybe the 1200 that you're playing against might make a mistake and give you a dub

It's like they saw someone playing the other games and thought "we can do that too!" And totally missed the mark on so many shots. My favorite thing about the game is the part where we sit down and watch our friends get attacked and killed in cutscenes. I can't tell you how many times I shouted "I have a rocket launcher, a shotgun, an assault rifle, and a pistol! LET ME SHOOT HIM!"

Watching ____ die the most bullshit stupid death in video game history was what really dropped it down to a 3/10 for me. I HAVE GUUUUUUUNS LET ME SHOOT HIM. It's like they tried to recreate ______'s death from BL2, but they didn't realize that he died because ____ caught the entire group off guard. We didn't have time to shoot him before he teleported in, shot the guy, did a spoiler, and teleported out. We were watching Troy the ENTIRE TIME he was killing ____.

If this is just the same game from my childhood rereleased with new servers so I can actually play online, then this is the very first time a game company has really understood what I want

Hating both is the only based take. All billionaires are evil, even if you really really like their music.

You're fuckin dreaming if you think this silly airplane meme is equivalent to the hate we send Musk's way all the time, constantly

starman2112 ,
@starman2112@sh.itjust.works avatar

Sure, and I would say we send at least 185 times more hate towards musk. This is a meme about airplanes, nobody has been calling her a nazi or an apartheid nepo baby or anything.

Atheism is a lack of belief, not a belief in a lack

@starman2112@sh.itjust.works avatar

My problem is that the people I associate with that watch anime, watch anime that I don't. It's not a genre, it's a medium, and there is not much common ground between Haibane Renmei and My Hero Academia

But yeah, it is nice to be able to have computer wallpapers and wall art without the people I know thinking I'm an /a/ style weeb

starman2112 ,
@starman2112@sh.itjust.works avatar

Gnostic atheism, as opposed to agnostic atheism. Atheism as a label doesn't imply one or the other, it's simply a lack of belief in a god.

Leave two car lengths in front of me on the highway. But doesn't that mean people are always merging right in front of you? Yeah, and that makes me about 2 seconds later to my destination every day. I'll gladly sacrifice that time to reduce the likelihood (and potential severity) of a crash

Idunno. Even as a subscriber to game pass, it still kind of worries me that we're speeding towards "you'll own nothing and be happy" territory with arms wide open. Of course you can still buy the games on game pass, but how long until you can't?

starman2112 ,
@starman2112@sh.itjust.works avatar

Yeah, and I'm not blind to the fact that I'm falling for the same trap by "buying" games from the online store. Part of the reason that I'm pro piracy is because I have a series S, and am incapable of keeping my own copies of the games that I "own"

Ignoring the fact that everyone has their hands on these flight paths because it's publicly available data, what if they did? Genuinely, what do you think is the worst that can happen?

starman2112 ,
@starman2112@sh.itjust.works avatar

You know militaries don't need publicly available flight tracking to shoot down planes, right? Like, they have machines that tell them exactly where everything in the air near them is all the time.

Plus, airlines literally post departure and arrival times on the internet as part of their business model. Even if you didn't know exactly where the plane was and when, you could make a pretty educated guess based on that information.

I used to work at an animal shelter, and my go-to nickname for the dogs was just the first syllable of their name twice. Joy becomes Jojo, Daisy becomes Dede, Torrey becomes Toto, Peter becomes Pepe... It took me about a minute to figure out that I needed to call him Petey instead
