The other day, I left this room on a quest.  Up the stairs, I found this strange room with a menagerie of utilities stored within, but nothing could prepare me for the second revelation; the entire enclosure was dedicated to food.

It was a delectable trip; I encourage everyone to drop the keyboard immediately and pursue a similar voyage.

I'm a grown ass man


I always heard about your kind when I was growing up; what is it like for only your ass to grow up?  Is balance a daily challenge?

#90278 Terry Crews is the absolute best

If the KKK suddenly stopped being about White Supremacy and started being about racial equality, they would change their name.

When Feminism changed from a movement focused on Female-only "equality" (while actually being a middle-class based revolt for the sake of special interest in almost every case; see when the ERA was killed multiple times because of a radical feminist group's rider bill).


You do not get to continue to use the social impetus of a movement (id est hijack the movement) in order to further advertise it to everyone.  "He for She" is an advertisement campaign, and marketing has been heavily involved in modern popular Identity Politics for ages.  In order to transcend class and obtain true equality, you have to discard the classes entirely and see through to the truly oppressive classifications, and, most importantly, the logical errors and other bias-based reasons that people have been fed (or fed themselves) in order to continue implementing the same oppressive lies.

Everyone can see that not everyone fits into a social construction of Masculinity or Femininity when you give them the right light, and when you do that, people start to challenge the very words we use to describe those interactions, like Feminism.  You do not get to rename "Feminism."  Make a new movement based on true equality--not on keeping the same gendered classifications and biases for everyone while simultaneously proclaiming that everyone is a special snowflake.

Yes, the people must organize, but organization is not automatically bulletproof, and the methods supported by the ideology propped up by Feminism is absolutely dilletante.  No need to perpetuate these baseless institutions, and there is no need to organize to teach people reason--when you give someone a taste of it that puts their sour ideologies to shame, they will want more.

Your daughter is going to wonder why she gets so nostalgic playing Saints Row in a few years.

#57656 I think I need to move away from PHP

Posted by flcl_grim on 21 November 2013 - 03:13 PM

If you know the principles behind your trade, you are not going to be corrupted by a specific task.

The context-dependent learning model implies that you will be able to catch yourself while programming in other languages because you will be saying to yourself, "This is how I would do it in PHP."

Regardless, learn every language that you can. Without formal training, it makes you more well-rounded, and it helps you understand the purpose of programming languages in the first place.  Each answer to the first question of programming ("What do I want to be easy in this programming language") is different, so each language is going to have different practices and procedures to take advantage of its creator's ideas for it.


That said, Perl is still better than Python.

#49348 Since all of you are still using Reddit, have a Nerd/Geek-related multireddit

Posted by flcl_grim on 07 June 2013 - 10:57 PM



This multireddit should serve most of your Reddit needs--and you do not need Gold to use it.

I know I never post, but you are still in my heart, Spleen's Army.



#40447 Does anyone NOT like League of Legends?

Posted by flcl_grim on 02 February 2013 - 08:25 PM

Ever tried to join a football league with no friends?  You might not have very much fun, either.
Play League of Legends on Co-op vs. AI with friends.  Learn together, et cetera.

#30943 Good news, everyone! We're not going to run out of music.

Posted by flcl_grim on 29 November 2012 - 02:22 PM

I abhor Vsauce's stressed tonality.  It seems like he is speaking out of a comic book; every other noun is in bold.

#30935 IE Filters seem to be making a comeback in CSS3.

Posted by flcl_grim on 29 November 2012 - 02:05 PM

That is what bothers me.  w3 was created as a method of standardizing the web.
Yet webkit, gecko, and other engines are trying to ruin that by introducing their own implementations of the same ideas.
I, personally, blame <blink> for starting it all.

This is possibly one of the best LARP experiences that has been shared with me.   Make sure to give it a read.

While completely fraught with jump scares, it really does shine brightly beyond them.  I recommend this (and anything on the BlackBoxTV YouTube channel, really) to anyone with 9:04.
