  1. I hate how my mind works at times. When I look at things like job applications or anything that has a lot of words where specific phrasing is key or has a huge effect on how something is interpreted, all it takes for me to get thrown off is how they phrase something. Like say for example I use Microsoft Word a fair bit and know how it works, but then a job application goes:

    "How much WORK experience do you have with Microsoft Word?"

    and then my brain goes "Wait, crap! Does that mean the experience in Word only counts if it's used in the office, or does it count if it's used outside of it!? What does it MEAN!?"

    And thus I get nothing done because I'm too literal-minded.

  2. QAnon is basically using repackaged Nazi Propaganda.

    https://www.justsecurity.org/72339/qanon-is-a-nazi-cult-rebranded/

    A secret cabal is taking over the world. They kidnap children, slaughter, and eat them to gain power from their blood. They control high positions in government, banks, international finance, the news media, and the church. They want to disarm the police. They promote homosexuality and pedophilia. They plan to mongrelize the white race so it will lose its essential power.

    Does this conspiracy theory sound familiar? It is. The same narrative has been repackaged by QAnon.

  3. Only in Trumpworld/GOPland can they think that comparing Joe Biden to Fred Rogers

    who is literally considered one of the kindest and most empathetic men to have ever lived in America,

    who dedicated his life to basically be the biggest good Samaritan possible,

    and somehow think it's an insult. Really goes to show just how fucked up and warped the right wing really is.

      This world sees kindness and humility as a weakness nowadays.

      People like them always want to look strong in front of everybody. It's really toxic.

  4. LOOK AT THE BABY BEAVERS:

    If any of you are artists, there's a humble bundle for CorelDraw, CorelCAD, Painter and a lot of other cool stuff for about 30 bucks.

  6. Is an interview the same thing as a job offer? Or are they different?

    1. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      They are different. 

      An interview is when you are being questioned and evaluated in person or over the phone/telecom to determine your work ethic and personality to see if you are a good fit. 

      A job offer comes after they have internally evaluated your credentials and based off the interview, and have determined that you are a good fit for the position. They then offer you the job with a certain amount of pay and expected hours. You got the job so long as you accept the offer.

  7. Huh, interesting. So apparently the whole "Sonic mistaken for Shadow" thing in SA2 was actually a cover story by the military in the Japanese version, but it was misunderstood/the English localization mistranslated/got it wrong.

     

    1. StaticMania

      StaticMania

      I'm sure a number of people already thought this, as did I, but other people kept denying it saying it's never implied by the game.

    2. Wraith

      Wraith

      A lot of people inferred this already but it's silly we don't get that detail in the english script

    3. E-122-Psi

      It's pretty damn creepy how much murderous government conspiracy is going on in this candy coloured game. The City Escape truck chase is kinda disturbing in hindsight, GUN were that desperate to cover their own hides they leveled half a street to try and murder their scapegoat, repeated saviour of their world be damned.

      Oh well, makes you feel WAY less bad for blowing up Prison Island.

    4. Plumbers_Helper

      Plumbers_Helper

      It was also implied in Sonic X. Usually I wouldn't bring up material that is clearly set in a different universe, but considering Sonic X used a lot of scenes cut from both Adventure games I think it's worth mentioning.

      Gotta love shoddy early 2000's translations. 

  8. So, any of you guys know about No Straight Roads?

    It's an action rhythm platformer game where you play as indie rock band fighting against a colorful cast of megastar EDM (Electronic Dance Music) artists to stage a revolution for an apparent blackout in the city.

    It's got a really killer soundtrack, and the characters are all really fun and diverse.

     

    1. Kiva Fever

      Kiva Fever

      I've heard of it through Zero Punctuation

      tl;dr Yahtzee really liked how creative it was but didn't like the gameplay because the beat was lost on everything else.

      I'm not sure if I'll get it, especially since Yahtzee sold me on a different rhythm game but I do appreciate that there's creativity out there.

    2. JezMM

      It is tempting because the music is fantastic (really glad the Sonic After the Sequel guys all got some big original project to work on together like this) and I want to experience the soundtrack within the intended context... but the demo was pretty lacklustre (when I look at the trailer, it seems like they picked one of the less interesting boss battles, and the demo ends suddenly  part way through after three waves of pretty much the same gameplay). The game is too expensive to take a gamble on for me at the moment with all the talk on how it's just "okay" gameplay-wise.  Hoping to give it a chance when it goes on sale.

  9. I feel like any alien civilizations that find the husk of our society in the future is going to end up thinking we worship the Flying Spaghetti Monster for real, instead of it being a big in-joke.

      It's gonna be much worse than that:

       

  10. Well shit, Trump's being airlifted to Walter Reed Hospital. It seems to be legit illness.

    https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2020/10/2/1982959/-Donald-Trump-reporting-being-admitted-to-Walter-Reed-Hospital-out-of-an-abundance-of-caution

    I honestly was skeptical and thought it was him trying to pull a fast one.

    1. KHCast

      KHCast

      I always was under the assumption it was real, just well timed, and that he’d have the necessary medical staff available to make it basically not even a issue health wise. Tho even if that weren’t the case, given who we’re talking, it’s not like I’d be caring or feeling for him either way 

    2. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Given what I learned from other sources though, the White House has it's own medical staff. So for him to be airlifted implies that it's even more serious than they can handle.

      But like you said, I hate him, so I don't really care in regards to HIM specifically, and more what's gonna happen as a result of this. And it was just unexpected.

    3. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      I'm also a bit worried as to what the likes of McConnell and Barr will do with Trump absent. They're both easily the most dangerous Thuglicans, and much more cunning/somewhat more intelligent by comparison.

    4. Spookilator

      Spookilator

      Holy shit, I didn’t think it’d happen that fast after I first heard it.

    5. Wittymations

      Wittymations

      To be fair, they claimed it was precautionary. That said, I doubt they'd be all "Yeah, Trump's totes in critical condition. Can't handle it. Naw'mean?"

  11. While the story of Generations is anemic, one thing that strikes me as unintentionally funny is how Eggman took control of the Time Eater.

    I mean, the Timer Eater is basically a giant black hole cosmic horror creature that consumes time and space, yet Eggman basically took one look at it and went "YOU'RE MINE >:D!" and yeeted himself straight at it.

    I can't help but imagine the Time Eater roaring and being all cosmic eldritch abomination and terrifying and all that, only to be completely confused at this tiny red fat egg throwing itself at it, and then a few hours later it's trapped and under the control of said fat egg.

    1. I Have Berry!

      I Have Berry!

      I think it's implied it had been concieved from the release of overloaded Nega Wisp energy when Eggman's space carnival was destroyed. So it my have been weak and imperfect at the time Eggman saw it, allowing him to easily control and help it grow to more of a machine that could stay loyal to him.

    2. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      @Supah BerryI mean that would actually make a lot of sense. The Time Eater does, in some way, resemble a nega wisp. They even have the whole eater thing in common too.

      Would've been a really neat way to further tie in Colors to Generations... ya know, if either game had actually cared about its narrative in general.

  12. Do you think Shadow's ever tried to teleport into Eggman's cockpit and just beat him up at point blank range instead of just whatever machine he's attached to?

      Dunno, but man, is it a laugh-out-loud funny image.

      WHAT. DID. I. TELL. YOU. BOUT. COMIN. UP. IN. HERE. WITH. DEM. DAMN. ROBOTS. MOTHA-

  13. Chuggaconroy's doing Xenoblade Chronicles 2 for his next LP, and his Premiere for the announcement is hilarious. It's a live action remake of some of the cutscenes, and Nia's played by his cat with a wig, and Pyra's a candle with fake boobs XD! @Zaysho You stan Mythra, but still maybe relevant?

    1. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      I haven't watched Chugga's videos though I've heard great things about how he pretty much got people to care about Xenoblade at all. I'll have to check it out when I have time. I didn't see this earlier because site was acting up for me.

    2. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      It was more me just sharing my amusement at the skit.

  14. This honestly sounds very similar to Tropical Resort Act 1 in many areas.

  15. 27 today...

    Nope, nothing really changed.

    1. QuantumEdge

      QuantumEdge

      I've never really felt different since I turned 17.  I feel like I'd be saying that though even if I were 88😆

    2. The Tenth Doctor

      Happy birthday man.

      Happy Birthday!

  16. The sheer nuttiness of pre-Colors Sonic ideas really sticks out more the further away we are from that era.

    Or rather, it just makes it more evident just how...mundanely? blandly? recent games tend to execute similar ideas.

    1. I Have Berry!

      I Have Berry!

      Especially evident in the amount of games that came out in each decade: Sonic goes from releasing several games where they can do whatever they want, to releasing fewer games where they're focused too hard on doing whatever "the fans" want. 

       

      On a side note, more kart racers should have bosses like this. Imagine an online competition between other players to cross the finish line first becoming a raid boss where whoever strikes it down gets big brownie points. Blue Shells become a free hit on the boss and everything.

    2. Miragnarok

      Miragnarok

      When they even BOTHER with similar ideas, that is.

  17. Reaction: Big the Cat during Unleashed spent most of his time fishing, and whenever he happened to catch a sea-dwelling Gaia creature, he would reel it in, and then just punch it in the face once to beat it. And then he'd string them up like trophies and just keep fishing.

    1. Sonictrainer

      Sonictrainer

      I'm pretty one punch from Big would send them back to Dark Gaia

  18. WE FOUND THE LOCH NESS MONSTER AND IT'S A MUTANT TURTLE!

    1. KHCast

      KHCast

      Actually it’s the turtle from gumball 

    2. Kiva Fever

      Kiva Fever

      Gamera went through a rough transition going in the 2020s

  19. Random Kingdom Hearts 3 Thought:

    Kinda feel like, with the theme of people leaving and returning, and with Sora himself leaving due to overusing the power of Waking, That the Hundred Acre Wood area could have been themed around the Pooh's Grand Adventure movie, with a fight against a Skullasaurus Heartless that ends up being akin to an amorphous  being that transforms into the fears of the Hundred Acre cast, thus tying into the idea that the Skullasaurus ultimately has no real concrete identity like the movie, while also perhaps foreshadowing how Sora would be eventually leaving possibly permanently.

  20. That moment when you realize that Destiny Deoxys is basically the Pokemon version of an Alien Invasion movie.

    1. KHCast

      KHCast

      Wtf, I just watched this earlier today. Lol

    2. Ferno

      Ferno

      That was my favorite 3rd gen Pokemon movie, mainly because I'm a sucker for futuristic settings like the city that the movie took place in. It always seems to get overshadowed by the Lucario movie though

    3. KHCast

      KHCast

      I loved the side characters of this movie probably the most out of any of the films 

    4. Kiva Fever

      Kiva Fever

      I liked the part with Rayquaza

    5. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      I don't think it'd quite make a top 5 list for me but it was pretty damn enjoyable last I saw of it.

    6. KHCast

      KHCast

      The 3D models for the Pokemon at the beginning was dogshit tho holy fuck

    7. Ferno

      Ferno

      "We may live on a Pokemon planet, but nobody ever said that it was the only one..." i was shook hearing that at the time tbh. the implications tho

    8. KHCast

      KHCast

      Wonder how long before we get a mainline Pokemon game set in space going to different planets to fight “galactic gym leaders” lol

  21. Reaction: Short story where a Dark Gaia Cockroach the size of a dog scuttles around and Amy is freaking out trying to crush it as it just BARELY escapes, and in the process her hammers are flying everywhere and Sonic and friends are trying to help with the roach while avoiding getting hit by Amy. Knuckles gets unlucky and gets hit a number of times and only shrugs it off because it's Knuckles.

  22. Reaction: My mind is having a weird Black Knight moment where Tails becomes a modern Robin Hood with a Wispon/Tails Gadget Crossbow (Thunder Shoot Crossbow anyone?) and he fights against an Eggman lackey based on the Sheriff of Nottingham/Bishop of Hereford, and he also can use his tails in tandem in melee as well as flight.

    1. Demonic Frenzy Ultima

      Demonic Frenzy Ultima

      So basically...

      Tails' Skypatrol 2?

    2. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Eh, I think it was a thing where I imagined The Blacksmith Tails from Black Knight being a secret freedom fighter against the tyranny of King Arthur; blacksmith by day, Robin Hood-esque figure by night or something. yes I know they're completely different eras of folklore, but still.

    3. Demonic Frenzy Ultima

      Demonic Frenzy Ultima

      ...oh okay then!

  23. Spongebob is now an anime! Watch now before it gets copyright striked:

     

    1. KHCast

      KHCast

      It sounds like they went through the proper channels to get this okay’d if they’re selling shirts and dedicating this to Stephen, so I think they’re fine. 

    2. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Eh, anything could happen on YouTube.

    3. iambitter21

      iambitter21

      this could be it's own thing on Nickelodeon.

    4. AWild No.1 washed up gamer

      AWild No.1 washed up gamer

      Now you can say that spongebob is your favorite anime.

    5. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Welp, it got removed from YouTube. Narmak's trying to appeal.

  24. So apparently an Arab Muslim named Ibn Khaldun proposed the Theory of Evolution 600 years before Charles Darwin did, and  Isaac Newton got his theory of Gravity from reading the books of another Arab Muslim named Ibn Al Haytham who lived 600 years before Newton even existed.
