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!

    I like how people are actually taking this guy seriously enough to bother to refute him. He's doing numerology. It used to be, somebody would just say "hey, this dude is a numerologist", and we'd all just ignore him quietly.

    I propose we do that.

    Now, who wants to come to my party?

    B) they got the secret service to subpoena lowtax for threatening to murder the president, lmao.

    I'm not very involved with SA, so LF doesn't mean much to me, but B) is one of the funniest things I've ever heard.

    The pony thread was killed months ago. Apparently some of the SA posters are still bitter about that, but I understand why the mods killed it, many of the posts were fairly low content (other than the insane amount of work some people did making animated gif avatars). I'm actually glad they did, I wouldn't have a Mlponies.com to post on if they hadn't.

    Speaking of gay rights stuff my girlfriend went to go buy a short from the FCKH8 website and after placing her order figured out that the shipping place is literally down the street from our house.

    So now I'm wondering if I could just walk over there and buy a shirt.

    I like reading interesting Ask/Tell threads and the occasional Let's Play on Something Awful. For every awesome poster with great stories or interesting subject-matter there's 10 people who can only gain notoriety by trolling and 1,000 people who get really scary-intense about very specific subject-matter, but it's the internet and they have a huge forum-population so what can you do?

    I'm just thankful that forum introduced me to Research Indicates and his sultry baritone.

    It depends.

    If it's just the shipping place, probably not since they won't be able to take the order and process payment on-site. On the up-side, that means you'll get the shirt very quickly if you order it.

    If the actual business that sells the shirts is on the premises, then you should be able to, but that may not be the case.

    Christianity has the worst afterlife myth of all time.

    Don't you want to be living in heaven serving god all day? Then just hang out in the clouds? Walking around really. I wonder if we lose the ability to be self aware and free will because that does sound tremendously unproductive. There's gotta be more to do

    Some LPs can be unbelievably creative (Have you ever read the Oregon Trail and Animal Crossing ones?), but generally I agree with you, although I don't have much interest in video games these days. Unboxing videos are a complete mystery to me as well.

    also his campaign spokesman gave this huge metaphorical speech about Newt climbing from "the ashes" and being a Washington Outsider.

    scripture states that after judgement you will be remade without your Earthly desires and will sing the praises of god well, eternally.

    In ages before, death was kind of a toss up between being in the light of creation or in the absence of that light.

    Basically don't root for Shinji.

    There's another thing to tell all of your friends and family. According to your beliefs, judgement day hasn't happened yet, nobody except the explicit biblical mentions are in heaven or hell yet.

    Yeah, your mom is still waiting right there in the dirt.

    Unboxing videos are kinda strange to me but I find myself enjoying a lot of them. However, I doubt I'm enjoying them for the reasons the producers of the videos intended. Something about droning, detailed monotone about a boring subject-matter that I have little to no interest in puts me in a very relaxed mental-state. It's that comfortable half-sleep feeling you have when waking up in the morning. I just let my mind go blank as some kid goes on and on about scented candles or a pimple-faced hobgoblin talks about his expensive, decorative sword as his mother holds the camera.
    I like half-listening to descriptions of Japanese toys compared to their Chinese knockoff counterparts and college students in hushed tones narrate literally every thought going through their head as they try to use a butter knife stolen from the cafeteria to pry open a dented cardboard box of anime statuettes.

    I hope one day medical science can diagnose my condition and learn from it.

    I actually get this too, although not so much with unboxing videos

    hearing a regular person talking with great enthusiasm about a pet obsession that I do not share is really enjoyable, though

    it gives me a funny little pleasurable headache at the back of my head

    Is it something I should be medicated for?

    Better-yet, is there a way for me to experience that hypnotic, blank-minded contentment without having to seek these videos out? You seem to know more than I.
