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!

    That... obelisk? Statue? Monument?


    It is kind of disturbing. It reminds me of the monument that was added to the lobby of the Ministry of Magic after the Death Eaters took over that showed muggles being trampled by wizards.

    And also the final battle against Kefka in Final Fantasy 6

    Hello [chat], long time no type.

    How you doin?

    Steam
    So we get stiff once in a while. So we have a little fun. What’s wrong with that? This is a free country, isn’t it? I can take my panda any place I want to. And if I wanna buy it a drink, that’s my business.

    First they thought it had just tripped on the ice and couldn't get up

    But it couldn't get up when on land either so it probably had broken some bones so they shot it

    I didn't know where else to put this until more details emerge.

    A friend just told me his dad and several other family members are being deployed to the Persian Gulf on emergency reactivation due to covert attacks against Iran's nuclear facilities on the part of Israel.

    There is literally no news outlets reporting this, so I have no idea about the veracity of the claim, but I have no reason to distrust this friend.

    Yes. That's the point. They're from an auto-biograpical novel about how much Aksel Sandemose hated his Danish home town Nykøbing Mors (and the rest of Denmark). It always amuses me when the Jante law is referred to as something positive in articles about Scandinavia.

    Iran's government making nukes and denying the holocaust doesn't affect me.

    I was just about to sigh at a headline I saw on reddit:
    Today 71% believe Iran has nukes. Nine years ago 70% believed Iraq was behind 9/11

    Which I thought was idiotic and fitting to the discussion about false equivalence we had yesterday.

    And of course the comments were all full of people quoting nineteen eighty four

    I'm not sure if these news made it more stupid or less stupid.

    Assuming Iran has nukes.

    Israel are the ones who are armed to the teeth with nuclear weapons while denying the whole time that they have them. I'm more worried about Israel nuking an Iranian city while buck toothed idiots on this side of the world pump their fist while screaming "Glass the brownskins!"

    How do you figure? Do you think Iran is a credible threat to Israel?

    Put another way, do you think Ahmadinejad has suddenly decided that he wants to be 'dispersed carbon' as opposed to 'President of Iran'? Because if and when Iran's government obtains a nuclear weapon, I see no reason why that would bring anything but stability to the region. As it stands, both sides feel free to dick around with rocket attacks and covert assassinations. Maybe a little MAD would be good for them.
