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!

    FriendZONE is acceptable in H/A. Friends Ladder is not.

    If it's acceptable in H/A, it probably is here as well.

    If you don't think that being friendzoned is something real and something unhealthy you're crazy

    Of course it is and not in a brobro way.

    That's not friend zone though. That's just friends. Friend zone is bullshit created by pathetic people.

    God you know what terrifies me

    The idea that the American 'pro-life' groups win and then take on Canada

    beware infiltration of your civil service, then

    it's a real, albeit low-probability (I think), risk. Certainly more plausible than an overt attempt to mobilize pro-life movements at a popular level in a socially liberal country

    Eh, the pro-life groups here been working to set up networks in the UK for the last decade and change. Same with Australia. With more success in Australia apparently.

    It's one thing to set up overseas interest groups that lobby overtly for pro-life causes; it's another thing to set up non-obviously-pro-life groups that can establish credibility in a society where being pro-choice is taken for granted. Think filling the slots of Susan G. Kamen foundations with people whose primary lobbying activity might be toward other causes but who might also be pro-life. And then a Conservative government achieves power for unrelated reasons, has a ready pool of 'neutral'-ish people to appoint to key offices in the civil service (again, for non-conspiratorial reasons like burnishing "I've never voted Conservative before" credentials) - and then suddenly the establishment's conventional wisdom of a topic taken for granted shifts under your feet. It doesn't take a conspiracy, it's just the results of a random process when there is no pressure for a "are you pro-choice?" filter for abortion-relevant offices because it's no longer an issue.

    It could happen via random chance but the odds of getting enough zealous people into those positions without someone fanning the flames of zealotry seems incredibly improbable. People have to care about the issue to trigger significant change, and anything less then significant change will simply be erased next time there is a power shift.

    There's always a United States of America that dominates international media and will always be fanning the flames of zealotry. It's just that people will watch those zealots speak up, face social censure, and fade away, right up to the point the Very Serious People who were enforcing social censorship have a change of heart you didn't know they were harboring for a while.

    Most people in liberal democracies do not live in hyper-democratic systems where every issue can be democratically reinforced easily through sudden populist action; who gets to be part of the establishment matters, for good or for ill.

    I'd love a breakdown of the Friend Zone someday. People who talk about it (not Ludious, but people who think they are 'in it') always seem to do so with a sense of entitlement. "If not for that dastardly friend zone, I'd be neck deep in Cindy's clam jam". Why? What if Cindy's just not into you? And it's not because she wants your relationship to stay as it is because she likes what you've got right now - though if it were, that's not unreasonable - or because she doesn't want to run the risk that romance might ruin your relationship, but because she's not attracted to you. Or she just doesn't want to be in a relationship right now. Or because she's into someone else.

    There are so many reasons not to date someone, the Friend Zone thing just seems way too simple and reassuring. It's a concept that tells a guy that the reason his best friend won't choke his chicken is because she's so deeply categorized him in her mind as "Friend" that she is no longer capable of viewing him any other way. Which is silly.

    Oh man, Hawken is no longer coming to XBL.

    But yeah when you "enlist" you get a referral link that lets you reserve your callsign if you get 3 suckers. So if you want Char Gundam or Kamina GurrenLagann or something popular it would be a good idea.

    Well, [chat], my apartment is clean.

    Time to make myself clean and then go hunting and gathering.

    Also, this whole draft thing is dumb. It makes me feel obligated to post because I started typing something, then thought better of it, but now a draft is saved and I don't want it to be so I post something inane like the above even though I know nobody cares and I'm not going to be sticking around long enough to join in any meaningful conversation but my hate of saved drafts is greater than my concern over how I look when I post something without any substance.
