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 traded the [chat] for it back in town!

    I saw some people talking about how apparently The Cable Guy is considered a cult classic now.

    What? Seriously? That movie was awful. Awful and uncomfortably weird. I really hate it when terrible movies somehow become classics.

    Speaking of Shakespeare, anyone with Netflix should check out In Search of Shakespeare. It's in their streaming dohickey so you can watch it on your PC or 360.

    Have any of you read those Series of Unfortunate events books? Utter crap. The movie is maybe a 7/10 but given the source materiel they were starting with a -1000. Pretty damn impressive.

    I read the first one because it was the fad in middle school or something. I never read another one. The book uses reverse psychology to cover for lacking everything. "You want to read on? Well it gets a little sad and scary, no one would really want to read on. Oh so you do want to read on? Well I warned you." I don't know why anyone would make a movie out of it.

    After that I began just reading authors I heard are great "according to adults". The funny thing is when I started reading Slaughterhouse-5 a little early. I was just like o_O for much of the book. I got the real humor a couple years later.

    They were cool when I was 9. I have all 13 of them up on my shelf as a nice piece of nostalgia.

    Dude, never re-read them. I was in college when the first one came out but didn't read em until a couple years back.

    Terrible. Especially compared with other books aimed at the same audience. Even Harry Potter is a masterpiece of technical skill compared to those books.

    Oh, I know. They were awful (A one year old fighting a guy with a sword with it's fucking tooth?) but really, I try not to watch old cartoons either for the same reason.

    Except for Spongebob. Spongebob is fucking awesome.

    ouch, ow. Ow. Oh my god. Ow.

    Not only did I hate Spongebob but when I worked at an amusement park we had this spongebob ride and I heard the theme song so much it came into my dreams.

    Horrible horrible nightmares at that.

    It's not the content that makes them terrible. Nor the intended audience.

    Harry Potter, The Wee Free Men, The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents, hell even the Prydain books are all written for that age.

    Lemony Snicket just has a real knack for combining a complete lack of writing ability with absolutely overwhelming condescension towards his audience.

    Limp Moose, regale us with stories of you drinking!

    for America!

    I was in a hookah bar on valentines day and ran into 3 dudes who were submarine sailors stationed in kings bay. They told me this story.

    On submarines there are huge sea water condensers for cooling the reactors. They get very very cold. ESPECIALLY when the submarine is chilling out under the north pole ice. So on their boat they had a game where they would stick their dick on the freezing cold metal and who ever could keep it on longest wins.

    I was dumbfounded that someone would try this. But apparently the record was like 4 minutes and the dude had to go to sick bay for freezer burn on his dick.

    Some weird shit goes down on submarines. They are locked away from the sun and women for long periods of time.

    Something about today brought out the crazy people.

    From the guy that couldn't finish a sentence without uttering the words "Do you know what I mean? Yeah? Right?" to the woman plotting a subterfuge that wouldn't fool a mildly concussed five year old.

    The soundtrack to the audiobooks is fucking sweet.

    Mostly because Stephin Merritt is fucking sweet.

    have you ever had to go poop, but didn't really feel like getting up to go poop?

    That's annoying.

    its worse when you have to poop but you are on the phone with a girl you like.

    SO you are like OH MAN HAVE TO POOP dont want to poop in front of her BUT SHES NOT EVEN HERE! and then you worry if it will be so loud she hears it over the phone.

    But then its nice and silent and your all good. And on instinct you flush and then the jig is up!

    In all seriousness though, Spongebob is awesome. I really should not be that entertained by a cartoon made for 10 year olds, but it's mesmerizing.

    so when you have to go poop really bad, but you fight the urge back, does your butt basically swallow some poop?

    I've just been told my whole life "exit only, Ludious!" and then, when I am on the cusp of pooping my pants, I hunker down and really flex those muscles, and the urge goes away. The poop had to go somewhere. So apparently it went in reverse. Which means it IS a two way street. Which means Pepperidge Farm Piroutte Rolled Wafers make a lot more sense now.

    Ludius, if you hold poop in then your body just sucks all the water out of it, leaving you constipated.

    I swallow, and then my poop is green | PoopReport.com

    The slimy green covering on your poop is more than likely just swallowed mucus, ..... EATING THE WRONG FOODS, this can make you never shit and when you do its ... The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt. ...

    In other news I found people on the Internet playing an actual (well almost actual...) MMORPG that were offended by the phrases "If you don't like it you can suck it" and "gank my shit"

    I thought these people only existed in the myths of yore!

    pfft, I get to spend nine weeks in BFE oklahoma, then almost a year in north Alabama, then maybe I'll end up going to Afghanistan to fix Artilery radars.

    I'm not worried about me dying, i'm worried about fucking up and letting the base get hit by a shell.
