    How do you feel about bullshit DRM?

    herp derp please explain what Steam actually saved PC gaming from? Because I must have missed the great pre-Steam PC apocalypse and that sounds like something I'm pretty sure I would have fucking noticed.
  2. When you read this you hear a voice in your head. Really. You can hear it now. Hello, fucknugget, I am the voice inside your head. You have ignored me for years, and now you are actually thinking about it, you are either pausing in this paragraph to have a little internal monologue or you are hearing two voices in your head. The other guy, he's a fucking dick, he's like the two hemispheres of your brain are doing their own thing and fuck the other guy, man, listen to meeeeeee....

    Why is Apple such a piece of shit?

    The problem used to be uninstalling it. No idea about how it works today, but cleansing your system of itunes in the old days involved bathing your HD in acid.

    I think I lolled a little in my pants.
  7. No reason, other than I felt like sharing a quote that has been bouncing around inside my skull for the past decade. I will quote, and then you will add a quote, and we will all revel in some awful heathen quotation gangbang and look less spastic by association.

    “There is a common emotion we all recognize and have not yet named -- the happy anticipation of being able to feel contempt.”

    - Thomas Harris

      “You are not you--you have no body, no blood, no bones, you are but a thought. I myself have no existence; I am but a dream--your dream, a creature of your imagination. In a moment you will have realized this, then you will banish me from your visions and I shall dissolve into the nothingness out of which you made me.

      In a little while you will be alone in shoreless space, to wander its limitless solitudes without friend or comrade forever—for you will remain a thought, the only existent thought, and by your nature inextinguishable, indestructible. But I, your poor servant, have revealed you to yourself and set you free. Dream other dreams, and better!

      Strange! that you should not have suspected years ago—centuries, ages, eons, ago!—for you have existed, companionless, through all the eternities.

      "It is true, that which I have revealed to you; there is no God, no universe, no human race, no earthly life, no heaven, no hell. It is all a dream—a grotesque and foolish dream. Nothing exists but you. And you are but a thought—a vagrant thought, a useless thought, a homeless thought, wandering forlorn among the empty eternities!”

    Why is Apple such a piece of shit?

    This would be a fair rebuttal if half of those mice had more than a single button.

    Why is Apple such a piece of shit?

    Yeah, I'm old. But I will point out that they continued to pack single button mice with their package computers for a further five years after that. Selling broken shit with built-in obsolesce to retards is pretty much what their business empire is built on. My point was that absolutely nothing has changed in that regard.

    Why is Apple such a piece of shit?

    'tis simple. The programs used in graphic design (Adobe, previously Macromedia, etc) were better for, if not native to, Mac. The PC ports were pretty much garbage. Going to uni to study graphic design meant learning how to use a Mac. So it's ingrained in the culture. Lecturers, themselves mostly graphic designers who failed at getting anything decent done in the industry, are not going to relearn their skillset. Using Mac will be the norm until these fools are fired / honorably kill themselves. Macs are pretty. Artistic types, especially the more vapid set, are enthralled by pretty bling. The fact that your computer only has ONE FUCKING MOUSE BUTTON BECAUSE STEVE JOBS WAS A FUCKING CANCEROUS CHIMP is moot. You look cool while doing it. You are an artist, aesthetics are important.

    What happens when AIs become spiritual?

    It's a step up from anthropomophizing foxes and rabbits which is the usual shit around here.

    What will you leave behind?

    [morbid] you know, reading this thread makes me think of the doomers who *did* actually die, as opposed to those who wish they would die so they could read their fucking obituary. All hail Amy.[/morbid] *lüt excepted

    What will you leave behind?

  18. I must share this, else I will go mad.

    I have a friend. He is an idiot, but I try not to discriminate. Said friend has two dogs; they shit mountains.

    The council introduced "Garden Waste" bins about three years ago. They are for stuff that is clearly meant to be fertilizer; old plants, grass clippings, etc. And, indeed, dog shit. Dog shit is apparently A-OK with this scheme. I imagine it is full of nitrates and worms.

    Now, picture this if you will - My friend is no gardener. He owns two dogs. He has a brown topped, eco-friendly bin for garden waste. He has put a year's worth of dog shit into said bin. A pound of dog shit, no more, no less, only dog shit, multiplied by two and multiplied further for every day of the year. This bin is made of dog shit. It is an epic dog shit bin.

    Out he wheels it onto the street during the designated day. The deed is done.

    Now, the council bin collectors are well trained. Verily, they expect people to try to sneak toasters and broken electronics into their Garden Waste bin. They check before they recycle shit into their bin lorry. They give all offerings an eyeball before they add it to the pile.

    They find the dog shit worthy. The little green polystyrene bags that the dog shit is contained in, however, are not bio-degradeable.

    They refuse to lift the bin and depart, chortling, for new horizons.

    My friend, my dumb, stupid, mentally retarded friend, now has 240 litres of dog shit to separate from bags by hand. Or, alternatively, he has 240 litres of dog shit to fly-tip somewhere out in the country. A tricky task, because my friend is also a massive spastic, and has only one functioning arm and a gammy leg and only one hemisphere of his brain works at any given time.

    The bin is full. The dogs keep shitting. Wedging the bin lid down will only work for so long. And I don't think I have ever laughed so hard in my entire fucking life.

      Ironically, dogshit is really...shitty when it comes to fertilizing properties:

      I was quite amused by that. I actually pictured you standing on the street when he tells you all this and you literally falling over just laughing your ass off.

      Can he not try to dispose of the bagged shit by depositing a group of bags into his regular waste bin each week, eventually whittling it back down?

      Or are the dogs shitting JUST that much?
