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!

"This is a funny and accurate assessment of how phony medicine has become successful."
Hearing "well I used to think but then
[some anecdote]" makes me so angry. That's the fucking point.
They play off that stupid anecdote! They rely on people trusting their guts and their idiot fucking friends instead of actual evidence. So yeah, no shit the special fake doctor made you feel better. They know how to make just enough people feel better for just long enough to recommend them to other people. The odd severe injury or death doesn't need to be paid any mind, because well you know that's not your
guy. You're so motherfucking smart! You'd never fall for that.
It's like claiming three-card-monte isn't a scam because you saw this one guy who went right before you win.
