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!
Different priorities? Being in shape is something that everyone needs to do, it's good for your health. Your health should always be #1.
Good thing you know what's good for people better than they themselves do.
The above quote tree is from the SE thread on the first episode of season 2 of PATV. While it's not a great discussion in itself, it does bring up what I feel is a worthwhile question:
When are you justified in nagging people you care about (your friends, relatives, co-workers, people who draw webcomics that you like, etc.) to do something that will objectively (or at least, I don't think you could make a very cogent argument against doing) improve their lives? Is it annoying and offputting to bring up your buddy's tobacco habit one in awhile and urge him to quit? Is it beyond the pale to see someone buying loads of Arizona tea and mention that it's basically just sugar water?
How justified are people in suggesting (politely) that the people they care about help themselves?
