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 was in Subway an hour ago getting my lunch and behind me in line was this young family.
Mom & Dad are clinging to their old lives by dressing in skater/punk clothing and retaining their ridiculous facial piercings and faux-hawx. Their son, Thaddius (yes Thaddius) is dressed similarly with a mohawk shaved into his little head. Thaddius is about 2-3
I caught the following exchange:
"Daddy, can I pick my drink? cuz I know what I want!"
"Sure, Thaddius" He made such a point to say his son's awesome original name, "what do you want?"
"I want chocolate milk. What are you having daddy?"
Thaddius makes a FACE. Like he saw a walking turd. Confusion combined with disgust.
"What kind of chocolate milk is that?"
You go, Thaddius. Overcome your name and own it and be awesome. Also enjoy you chocolate milk.
Kids are so goddamn honest and it warms my heart to see that you're not BORN a douchebag. You're made into one, and maybe, just maybe, you can fight it.
So SE++, take this story and understand; you have no excuse, so be awesome.
