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!

    So, on a different note, can somebody explain some of the common symbolisms we do see in fashion and amongst pop culture that conspiracy websites like to focus on? Like the covering of one eye for asymmetry, use of pentagrams and baphomet in fashion shows, illuminated eyes in all sorts of random stuff. I'm not saying I believe any of the actual conspiracies, but there is a noticeable trend of certain types of symbols being in pop culture.

    I know sights like Vigilant Citizen love to bring them up and have scores of images throughout the years of the above images being in the pop culture, and I was wondering if anyone had an actual explanation for it, cause it is odd that some of this iconography is so prevalent.

    Taboo enough to have a sense of edginess and a message of 'non-conformity', while not going over the line into outright offensiveness, probably. A form of hip, but carefully brand-friendly, counterculturalism.

    Bishop saying that her travel expenses aren't out of the ordinary does not make me think that it's all fine and normal, it makes me think "All 'yall can fuck right off. Burn Parliament to the ground!"

    Can we please get less French Aristocracy attitudes in the government. Less acting like Royalty.

    I'm trying to think of a way she could have responded worse.
    She says it was an "error of judgement", but won't admit it was a mistake
    She flat-out won't apologise
    She thinks paying it back fixes everything (nevermind the Europe junket, or Slipper's fiasco)
    She's supposedly impartial, but keeps repeating Liberal talking points about this distracting from "Labor's triple-whammy carbon tax"
    She says it her staff's fault (nevermind that she signed the papers which would have listed the costs)
    And she won't release the guidelines, nor the papers she signed

    The best part? The AFP have referred the matter to the Finance Ministry for investigation. So the Liberal Party will investigate the speaker chosen by the Liberal Party for wrongdoing. And all relevant documents will only be shredded seen by them.

    It also appears that a Captain's Call has been made behind the scenes. After the Liberals started saying something was iffy, now they've rallied behind her just as Abbott finally mans up and makes a public statement about it. Hockey was in full backpedal mode last night in an interview, refusing to own the fact that he doubted her at all.

    Edit: The new official line? "I didn't bother reading the form I signed, so I'm not responsible" Seriously.

  • Re: [World of Warships] You got me tied down with battleship chain

    ok. I wont be posting much more pics of battle reports but this was amazing. we were down 250 points to 856. I was able to cap and solo 3 destroyers and 2 battleships at the end.

    I dont think I can top this one. I think DDs are where I'm gonna focus. I was playing my langley carrier and constantly getting matched against 2 carriers vs. 1. So frustrating but games like this make up for it.

    Jesus. How'd you manage that?
