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!

Awesome: 'The American Jobs Act OR Stimulus 2: The Stimulating' by Astaereth

I realized yesterday that the problem with American politics is that we have a party of reasonable, flawed human beings, and then we have the party of Space Parasites. The Democrats are like "I propose we increase our economic stimulus in order to provide jobs," and the Space Parasites click their mandibles and counter-propose that we harvest all resources and then flee to a planet that hasn't been harvested yet.

And then the Democrats are like, "I don't know... What if we compromised and only sucked out half the lifeblood of our society?" And even that makes the Space Parasites angrily question the Democrats' commitment to Sparkle Motion. And then the public looks at both parties and then votes for whichever candidate has the sleekest proboscis.
