  1. I mean, you don't have to play it again.
  2. My favorite Greek philosopher is Diogenes the Cynic. There's a story written down by Plutarch that says Alexander the Great once met him in Corinth while he was lounging in the sun, because Diogenes was notorious for doing things like live in clay jars in the marketplace like a hobo. Alexander was thrilled to meet him and asked him if there was anything he could do for him. Diogenes allegedly said, "Yes, you can stand out of my sunlight." Alexander declared, "Truly, if I were not Alexander, then I would wish to be Diogenes." Diogenes quipped, "If I were not Diogenes, I would wish to be Diogenes too."

      I like the roman Seneca.

      That's interesting: Stoicism shares some connections to Cynicism. The founder of Stoicism was a student of one of the Cynics for a time, and thus some of his early ideas for Stoicism grew out of Cynicism.

      Coincidence enough I watched a video about Diogenes before seeing your status update. Here's another story about him, it goes that he hated Plato so much that he devoted a frankly heroic amount of time to annoying him and it’s noted that Diogenes would never miss an opportunity to annoy the philosopher. For example, it’s noted that Diogenes would frequently attend Plato’s lectures just to argue with him or generally dick around, doing things like eating loudly in the front row or taking a shit on his seat before leaving. On another occasion after Plato defined a man as a “featherless biped”, Diogenes plucked a chicken, brought it to one of his lectures and loudly proclaimed “look, I have brought you a man!” An embarrassed Plato quickly added “with broad flat nails” to the description.

  3. Earlier this year when Daylight Savings Time hit, the people in an office at my work couldn't figure out how to pop the face off their clock to move the hands, so they just colored the face in with a black sharpie and renumbered the clock using white out so it showed the correct time. Now that DST is ending soon, I'm really curious what their plan is for it but I'm not sure I want to ask because I'm afraid the answer will be, "ReNuMbEr Da ClOcK, sToPiD!!!1"

     

    I wish I was kidding, but this is 100% true.

      You guys don't have phones?

      Considering that we all work on an active Navy flightline and carrying a phone around in your pocket near aeronautical equipment is what military aviation calls a "FOD hazard", the answer would be no.

      Oh fair lol. Was tryna do a Blizzard meme, but fair play :P 

  4. I don't understand how a video of someone chewing food can be considered "ASMR", unless ASMR is a synonym for "aggravating" or possibly people don't understand what the definition of ASMR is.

      because it gets click

      Yes, for clicks. It should be considered mukbang actually.

  5. I know that history is always talking about how badass the Spartans were, but there's at least two major historical instances where they declined to send an army to some big battle because it was their day off or some such cockamamie excuse.

      Actually, Sparta is one of the more overrated powers of history. They probably wouldn't have beaten Athens if Athens hadn't run off Alcibiades. Their rule of Athens failed spectacularly (I mean, it lasted like one flippin' year).

       

      And all of them took a beating when Philip and Alexander took the stage.

      I forget which battle, but there's one where the Spartans actually caused or nearly caused it to be lost because of ineptitude. See, historically when the Spartans were at war in alliance with other city-states, they traditionally demanded that whichever general was in charge of the Spartan army was made overall commander of the alliance's battle plan. Except the battle in question was a naval battle, Sparta was never considered a naval power, and words "legendary Spartan admiral" were never uttered together in that order. Think it was one of the naval battles that was in concert with the Battle of Thermopylae, which would make it either Artemisium or Salamis.

  6. Has anyone stopped and really thought about what a weird word "cheese" is? Just stop and turn it around in your head for a bit. Isn't it weird? And it describes something you eat, which makes it even weirder.

    1. Nighcisama

      Did you eat some special mushrooms with your cheese by any chance? Because usually people only think about stuff like this when they are either very bored or on some highly unusual substances.

      How much cheese could a cheese chooser choose if a cheese chooser could choose cheese? And what about cheese chasers?

  7. Oh. This was false advertising. I thought it was about a monk corrupted by cheese, which would've been a weird thing, as historically cheese was typically made at monasteries by monks.
  8. Yeah, I did this starting from the beginning to the end. Of course, Grounded+ was at that point my tenth playthrough of the game, so I knew every pattern and every mistake not to make. For anyone saying it's impossible to do this normally, no it's not; if my untalented ass can do it, anyone can. Your stealth has to be 100% on point and you have to be a crack shot with the bow. But it can be done.
  9. Thank you Saturday Night Live for treating Joker with all the gravitas it deserved. 😂
  10. Messed around with No Man's Sky for a bit after not touching it for a few months, and man it's still awesome. I mean, er..."SeAn MuRrAy LiEd!!!1" :ninja:

  11. A coworker is heavy into backpacking here in Washington, and he was telling me about this backcountry toilet set off a trail in one of the nearby national forests. It's little more than a pine box with a sliding top, set over a pit. It's also situated at the top of a hill with very little in the way of cover, so it's just you and the toilet clad by naught but the sky. I'm tempted to track it down and try it out because it'll be the closest I'll ever get to pooping like a Dragonborn.

      Just make sure to have a big dinner the night before. Gotta get your money's worth. 

  12. No, that won't happen. At the most, it'll give insufferable 20-somethings another character to quote in online forums to appear edgy. Which may actually be worse.
  13. So in the Ghostbusters game, is there any callback to Walter Peck not having a dick like in the movie? Because if there's nothing else I remember about the movie, it's that scene.

      The original Ghostbusters where that scene was rated PG, soooo.....

      @damon8r351 Maybe, but doubt it would be if it was made in 2019.

      I cannot remember any of the lines but Atherton was recasted as Peck, so there is that.

  14. Can't wait to find out that the changes to the Playstation controller layout will be the addition of four more shoulder buttons.
  15. Did they ever fix that glitch where if a thread has been locked by a staff member, the person who created the thread can unlock it under the Moderation button? Because that day where I re-opened a thread of mine that Sly had locked and continued on like nothing happened has always been my favorite powermove.
