I couldn’t make this shit up

From the comments of a goblin’s blog.


“could you explain how is it “fun”?”

I think you can do that yourself. More then that, you already did before, on multiple occasions. Peter here is a perfect example of a strict follower of an Inner Ape. And for an ape domination doesn’t have to be motivated by something else, then by the need for domination itself. Evolution made it clear, that the most dominant ape gets all the females, and his offspring have much greater chance to be born. Games like EVE warp this instincts to more complex behavioral patterns, but the goal – the goal never changes.

“Also, I don’t understand why would anyone throw a keyboard out of the window because he lost a ship.”

The very same reason – he had been pushed down the domination chain. It’s unpleasant, and, depending of self-esteem, can be quite painful. And that, of course, come before any reason can kick in. Therefore, keyboards and windows meet more often, then it’s rational.


Playing EVE gets the girls HOT.

Fuck this Noise

I’m late to the game on this, but I read an article that finally set me off.

It started a week ago when I read this at Lum’s. Which lead me to this breakdown timeline. It involves a whole slew of controversy sparked by one person, who completely missed the point. Which lead me to the above linked blog entry, and more specifically, this line of instruction:

I am sorry.  Upsetting you was not my intention.  I clearly need to educate myself more about this issue.  Thank you for telling me about this and raising my awareness.  And again, I’m sorry.

Which is complete drivel, and utter horseshit. Honestly, it astounds me at times how one person can so completely miss the reality of a situation as to type out crap writing like that. Most specifically, it’s this portion that boggles my mind:

I clearly need to educate myself more about this issue.

No, I clearly don’t need to do anything.

Umm… what? Really?

He won a Nobel prize for what? Having a plan? Talking about things he wants to do? Telling people to play nice? Hell, I have a plan. I don’t start fights, if this is the criteria for the prize, their requirements have taken a nose-dive. Hell, I thought it was ridiculous when Al Gore won it for “increasing awareness of global warming and efforts to counter-act it”.

As an aside, how much do you love it being called “climate change” now instead of global warming. Also,  many scientists basically said, “Yeah, about that…”

I don’t often take any political stance here, but come on, the prestige of what was supposed to be one of the highest awards and recognitions we handed out to our fellow man has been given to a junior senator who never drafted his own bills, abstained from partaking in the vast majority of votes presented to him, and has been President of the United States for less than a year? What EXACTLY has he accomplished to be deserving of this. What precise, tangible affect has he had upon the world at large to warrant such an honor? Come on Norway, surely someone else out there has furthered the cause of human rights and invention more fully than President Obama. This feels like the pandering of an organization, using what should be an apolitical tool to increase an agenda. The respect I had for this honor just took a huge nose dive.

Sorry, you may now return to your regular gaming happiness.
