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!

    The Argentine government are being ass hats about them in order to try and force the UK to give them oil monies and distract their people from their shitty economy.

    Man, the Falklands sounds hella English so I figured it was somewhere in the UK and wondered why the hell Argentina is involved with them. I have no idea about this piece of current events at all.

    It's not really "current events" so much as "every so often Argentina decides the Falklands should be theirs because" and pulls stuff like this.

    There was that one time they invaded, though.

    Not that I'm aware of. The Falklands War was 22 years ago, and England basically decimated the Argentine army and air force using one aircraft carrier, some transport ships, a few harriers and an expedition force of marines. There was one major incident where a lot of British troops died to a bombing run by the Argentine air force, but for the most part, it was a total embarrassment for the Argentine military junta.

    Chat should talk about this guy

    220px-Sir_Adrian_Carton_de_Wiart_by_Sir_William_Orpen.jpg

    "Lieutenant-General Sir Adrian Carton de Wiart VC, KBE, CB, CMG, DSO (5 May 1880 – 5 June 1963), was a British officer of Belgian and Irish descent. He fought in the Boer War and both World Wars; was shot in the face, head, stomach, ankle, leg, hip and ear; survived a plane crash, tunneled out of a POW camp, and bit off his own fingers when a doctor wouldn't amputate them. He later said "frankly I had enjoyed the war."

    AMFE, I'm really shaky on economic stuff and generally stay out of the conversations, especially if ronya is prowling the [chat].

    But I'll take the occasional cheap shot at low hanging fruit. ;-)

    That's the other thing, the Argentine government's interest in the Falklands is directly related to how well the current administration is doing in the polls.

    You're well behind the times.

    the most recent development was an ad for the Argentina olympic team titled "Playing on British Soil, Training on Argentinean" which was covertly filmed in the Falklands.

    The Argentinean ambassador was also a dick to the UK's ambassador the other day saying something like "are you ready to talk about peace yet?"

    This is especially annoying when their mobile site is either shite or non-existent, and/or they block or redirect "unsupported browsers" from their main site.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    It is irritating when companies prioritise an app for a specific platform over a usable mobile site. Especially when there's no reason whatever the app does couldn't be replicated by a normal website.

    What you think "makes sense" has nothing to do with reality. It just has to do with your life experience. And your life experience may only be a small smidgen of reality. Possibly even a distorted account of reality at that. So what this means is that, beginning in the 20th century as our means of decoding nature became more and more powerful, we started realizing our common sense is no longer a tool to pass judgment on whether or not a scientific theory is correct. - Neil Degrasse Tyson

    I submit that electricity, a basic utility, and an iPhone, an expensive luxury item, are not actually comparable in this regard.

    Port Royale 3 just came out via Steam. Haven't played it yet but #2 was a like a more modern (in terms of graphics / complexity) of Pirates.

    The Falklands War was actually 30 years ago. *Pushes up glasses*

    I'm interested that they spent money on an advert for the olympics which said "To train for the games on British soil, we train on Argentine soil", and filmed a dude jogging around the Falklands.

    And doing those little steps up and down on the foot of a British war memorial. Subtle.
