The holiday hangout will go online tomorrow! If there's anything in the regular subforums that you're going to want to access over the holidays, copy it now while it's still accessible.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
For the past 3 years, the minute hand of the Doomsday Clock has stood at 5 minutes to midnight. This Thursday, the hand will move again. The question now is, given what we know about the situation of the world, which way do you think the hand is going to go? (Keep in mind, while the clock used to be an exclusive measurement of impending Nuclear War, it now takes into account any number of global disasters or threats that may destroy the world.)
In 1991, the hand was at a peaceful time of 11:43pm, right in the middle of George Bush's presidency. But for the past 15 years we have been moving closer toward our destruction. If the hand were to go backward on January 14, it would be the first time it has done so in almost two decades.
If you had to bet a shitload of money, which would be the safe bet here?
There's two types of bets you can make:
1) Is the hand going to go forward or backward?
2) By how many minutes will the hand change? +/- (positive being a counterclockwise movement away from midnight, negative moving clockwise toward midnight)
Personally, I'm predicting it will go Forward, -2.
New Year’s Eve is the best. For one magical night, even the most straight-laced babe feels socially obligated to get blindingly drunk and act like a total whore. Pretty daddy’s girls with blond hair and tight asses swill cheap champagne and toss back shots of peach schnapps until they’re flashing their big, firm tits at any chump who wanders by.
