    I'm not sure "today" is necessary there. Everything you just said is just as true two decades or two centuries ago. People have fairly consistently through history been adverse to change on both a macro and micro scale.

    People are generally adverse to change, true, but I can recall about when the trend of "I'm going to advertise my flaws and be proud of them" became more widespread and mainstream. The attitudes of society change, which often changes how people in society work, even if they refuse to change on a personal level.

    I was about to post an example of something that's been around forever that explains my point, but I'm pretty sure that's the singular topic we're not supposed to bring up even in the off topic section so I'll just leave that there and move onto other discussions.
    Me: "Can I have 10 chicken tenders?"
    Walmart Deli: "You can get 2, 4, 8, or 12."

    Me thinking: "Does Walmart not know the definition of 'Deli' now, and how this works? I'm not at a McDonalds Drivethrough..."

    To be fair...you can get 8 and 2 :guffaw:
    What got me the most is for years it was cheaper to order two 6-piece McNuggets from the dollar menu than it was to pay for the 10-piece (I might be misremembering the quantities, but the logic holds).

    At least at a drivethrough, I understand, ha ha. They sell in highly specific quantities since they "cook it right now" and they have their containers. But... a Deli, where they put it into bags? And put it on a scale to weigh it? Ha ha.
    Anime: Magic rock can be used to store magic like a battery, but it explodes if you overcharge it.
    Me: Why doesn't anyone use this stuff as a bomb on the battlefield to hinder enemy mages?

    @cthulhusquid not sure about "Generic". It's "How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom". It's the setting the generally bothers me as people aren't using what they've got very effectively. The whole thing serves as basically a history lesson on "building civilization", but it doesn't do "war" very well.

    @Tai_MT I feel like The World's Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in Another World as an Aristocrat is better in that regard because the MC makes magic firearms including a sniper rifle, magic bombs equivalent to tactical nukes, and even a magic version of the "Rods from God" orbital kinetic weapon, because he was an assassin with modern weapon knowledge before reincarnating.

    @Ninjakillzu I had seen that and he is very clever about the weaponry as well as creating new forms of it. I'm just always disappointed when a "setting" doesn't make a lot of sense because the author didn't really think very hard about the implications of what they've dreamed up.
    My apartment is 50 degrees. Finally, it's cool enough for my brain to operate well again! Nothing like cool weather to get the brain juices flowing.
    I am so happy this is a 3 day weekend. I need to clean my apartment and resume work on one or both of my games in progress.

    I would love for a 4 day work week. Though, to be honest, we're behind as it is with a 5 day one. Plus, I work for State Government, so... I probably won't be so lucky.
    With my new computer only able to connect to my 4K TV... it's spoiled me. I don't think I can ever have less than this massive 4K TV screen in terms of resolution for PC gaming anymore. What have I done?

    Idk about gaming (I still occasionally lower the resolution to gain FPS stability), plus some games just have too small UI not proportional to the resolution. But the bigger resolution did help for writing codes.

    Let me put it this way... 60+ inch 4K TV... computer hooked up to it... and me sitting like 2.5 feet away. I've yet to run into "text that is too small". :D I have run into my computer wanting to "increase magnification to 300%" as an issue though.
    Food for thought. Factorio: Spaghetti belts make your factory inefficient as you fight for space constantly. Satisfactory: Spaghetti belts and massive clipping is the most efficient way to run your factory since it's the shortest distances.
    gstv87
    gstv87
    any belt in Factorio will make your base less efficient.
    since any belt is effectively a small chest, the more belts you lay out, the more time it takes for any resource to reach it's destination.
    that's why buses, and the meta way of building them, are a big pile of BS.
    use trains and small logistic networks, and stop wasting resources!

    @gstv87 I think "The Main BUS" just exists to "look pretty". Don't get me wrong, it does look pretty... but I've never found them "efficient" in any way for the same reason you don't. I'm more of a "specialized outpost" sort who ships finished products via train/robot. Much faster!
    The most important thing to design your game for is fun. If a game isn't fun, why would anyone want to play it? Well, that and "can you play the game?". Anything else is incidental.
    Every group of friends has that one "stupid friend". If you aren't sure who is the "stupid friend" in your group... it's most likely you.

    I'm entirely sure who the stupid friend in my group is.

    There's nothing wrong with being the stupid friend. Every group needs one. They tend to "bring the life to the party" most often. Or rather... they have the most funny stories and tend to be the most "well liked" among the group.
    Spend $5,000 on a new gaming PC. Didn't expect it to be like 1 foot wide, 2 feet tall, and weigh like 100+ pounds. The heck did I get myself into?

    Yeah, I didn't even go "ultra high end". I just picked some of the best options available on Alienware and I got a freakin' monstrosity that I can't even connect to my monitor or fit under my desk.

    cthulhusquid
    I made a great one for around 2500 including monitor, but it required a lot of research on parts (thankfully my brother already built a pc so he helped me a lot) as well as several days to put it all together. I assume yours was prebuilt?
    Tai_MT
    Tai_MT
    Yeah, just a prebuilt Alienware one. I know jack about computers and lack the patience in trying to just build one from scratch.
    Welp, it's been more than 10 years with this PC and now the internal fan died and I've got "heat damage". It's been a good run, probably time I finally upgraded again. Looking forward to backing up my project to transfer it to a new PC.

    Yes it was! The longest I've ever owned one (aside from my original Hewlett Packard with Windows 3.1 installed on it) and the amount of usage I got out of it was pretty good (only being unable to run Satisfactory, Planetside 2, and Ark: Survival Evolved) on it to any degree of playability. 10 years out of an $1100 PC is pretty good in my book.
    Maybe I'm a weird gamer, but... I just don't care much about your music or your visuals. I tune out the visuals after an hour, so they're not impressive, and I haven't heard a "good soundtrack" for a game in so many years that I typically turn off music in games after the first few hours. Why do reviewers still bother rating visuals and sound design in an age where both are worthless?

    Then, you get weird outliers like this one: A song I would never have enjoyed... if I hadn't played Mass Effect, which gave the song context for me to enjoy it.

    A profile update basically turned into a "topic" and we've got a "character limit". So... lots of comments.
    ...and I somehow just spent like 3.5 hours working on my crazy idea for a card game. I pick it up and put it down. I pick it up and put it down. It's a weird project to engage in when I have no artistic talent what-so-ever.

    I'm working hard at my job today, doing the tail end of a really long job for one of our customers. She shot out there, out of nowhere, "I should come down sometime and take you out to drinks as thanks". I have no idea how to respond to that in a professional setting so it was the awkward, "I'm just doing what I can".

    I'd say it depends on whether you would like to go out with her. Unless there's a company policy in the way, you can accept using professional wording.

    As a weird general rule... I don't typically "date" people I don't really know. I find a healthy friendship before a relationship suits my tastes much better. Much as I do love being chased. But, from a professional standpoint, do you say "yes" knowing it'll never happen, but to be nice? Do you say "no thanks" as if you're being asked out, rather than as thanks? I have no idea in a professional setting.
    Pokemon Brilliant Diamond: Easy Mode all game. Highly overleveled. Elite Four: Brutal at Level 68 because suddenly the RNG is stacked against me and I'm being one-shot without STAB by mons 5 levels under me. Okay game, you want to cheat? Let's cheat. Resets to burn out your RNG crap so I can win fair fights.
    I've been playing Pokemon pretty heavily and religiously since Gen 1 on the old original Gameboy. Today is the first time I've EVER gotten the Pokerus in any game. I got it fighting Team Galactic of all things.

    Pokerus is really freaking rare, don't lose it xD

    And meanwhile...
    I'm still waiting to get a shiny pokemon that is NOT a red gyarados.

    Tai_MT
    Really? You've never had a single shiny? Man, that's depressing. I even have a "Legit" Red Gyarados that came from a Shiny Magikarp. I've got a random eclectic set of shinies just because I engage in every fight and don't run away and stay in routes to catch everything before moving on. o_O

    I've probably gotten Pokerus half as often as I've gotten a natural shiny, I still have one pokemon with Pokerus stuck in a box so I never lose it.

So I went to Alladin the musical, for the first time since I lost my sight. Was very stressed as I wasn't sure I could see it well. But I saw most of it sitting on row 2! Which is great. So I just booked 4 more musicals for 2023 :D
