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!

    @organichu thanks for the reply. I think I am gonna try out the trial run at Belcher's gym.

    Did Chu recommend you doing BJJ? Because if he didn't you totally should. He probably did, so I will merely back him up on his statement.
    Spoiler:

    Belcher apparently made a really douchey speech at the end of his last fight but I don't know the details of it. He is a pretty good fighter though. Doesn't necessarily mean his gym is good for students but anyhoo.

    I haven't watched the fight yet (main card got spoilt by my friend, grrr) so don't know about any douchiness, but Belcher is world class so I expect his gym will be too, at least in terms of equipment anyways. Also, Ludious should join if only to get a look at that terrible tattoo up close and personal.

    That XKCD can be sung to the tune of a certain opera but I don't know which one. ReBoot also parodied it with the musical at the end called Everything is Alphanumeric.

    XKCD isn't a comic many people would accuse of being anti-intellectual and I don't think yesterday's comic is anti education really. As someone who's been like "man I don't know if I'm interested in any major or any job" I can relate.

    There isn't a job that exists for me. Unless someone will pay me to read obscure 20th century literature and sit around writing obscure poems. And play Dungeons and Dragons. And sing bad punk songs alone in my room.

    Muay Thai is srs bizness. Just push your elbow back in their face! It's just kinda how it works!

    It was BJJ, so I was on my back and he was the instructor and my size or bigger so I was pretty much trapped. It was not a successful sales pitch of a session. Also, the place followed the Houston BJJ gym tradition of having no AC so the mats were covered in sweat, as were your classmates. Fucking disgusting. Lack of air conditioning doesn't build character. It grows ringworm and staph infections.

    I suppose the ostensible meaning is in the student explaining to his advisor why he can't pick a major. And of course it's presented in a tongue-in-cheek / ironic tone, for convenient defense of message. But in giving the common polemics as to why xyz majors are shit, such as an english degree being for naive dreamers, it seems to carry a more destructive message that education in certain fields doesn't have equal worth (yes, he pokes fun at Comp Sci and Physics as well, but having to slog through dense code or become an engineer doesn't seem as bad of an indictment as being the sexless unperson that is the philosophy major). Of course there are empirical differences in remuneration and future salary growth, etcetera. But all education, and everything that it entails, is still invaluable on a stratum more meaningful than money.

    I felt it was presented in an overall pessimistic tone, and that it made a joke that is analogous to a racism joke about how every race is awful, but then proceeded to "equate" stuff like "blue people are awful because they have to go to a white collar job and have terrible sex" with "green people are awful because they can't count and are criminals".
