    Propeller hats are a type of beanie. How is this so hard?

    Air Jordons are a type of sneaker, but all sneakers are not Air Jordons.

    Yeah. it's a "propeller beanie". It's pretty straightforward. You can shorten it to just beanie, because that's the broader catagory of hat that said propeller is affixed to.
    That said, the proper name for a knit winter cap is Toque. Canada stands united. America remains divided.

    It's a knit cap. A sock hat. A stocking cap. A wool hat. A beanie. A toque. A toboggan.

    A fucking toque, like a stocking cap, is a hat meant only for the bedroom.

    I've honestly always been confused about words for hats in English, since I'm not a native English speaker.

    Where I live there are distinct words for most types and anyone will immediately know what type of hat you're talking about.

    I'd say the same for button up shirts. In English they're often just called shirts, which is ambiguous as hell. In Danish we have a word that specifically refers to a button up shirt.

    Don't get me started on the 'button up shirt' versus 'button down shirt' thing.

    Anyone that says button down shirt is an awful person. Or is it a distinction between buttons that show (up) and buttons that are hidden once in (down)?

    Apparently, button down shirts are specifically the ones with the collars you can button down.

    Button up is the default one.

    I'ma still call it a button down, though.

    So there are button up shirts that are button down but not all button up shirts button down. Got it.

    (All?) button downs are button ups, but not all button ups are button downs.

    Collars with buttons are Oxford collars in British English.

    In case things were still a bit too clear.

  • cooljammer00cooljammer00 Hey Small Christmas-Man!Registered User regular
    Yeah, but who gives a fuck about an oxford collar?

    Now let's start naming tie knots. I'll start

    1. The First One I Found on YouTube and the only one I know.


    Also, back on topic - This Is The Run is a series I hope they keep doing even after they finish end up finishing Contra.

    All you need to know about tie knots is that anything that was created within the last like, 5 years (the Eldritch knot, the Trinity knot) are all terrible and not worth doing or knowing about.

    You don't have to be a sloppy tie wearer like me, who only knows how to do a Four in Hand knot, but if you wear an Eldritch or a Trinity, you're an asshole.

    They've definitely talked about This Is The Run being a continuing feature with other Nintendo-Hard games.

    This Is The Run should use 2-player games that are difficult, but probably not Battletoads difficult.

    As far as today's This is the Run livestream:
    They were fucking it up so much that I was certain they were going to fail. Glad I was wrong, though.

    Some other acceptable This is the Runs:
    Bubble Bobble
    Marble Madness
    Altered Beast
    Battletoads
    Double Dragon

    I think it is very important that the 2-player be simultaneous.

    It'd make sense for them to do it eventually, but it'd be nice for them to switch it up and do something else. Someone in a comments section suggested Lifeforce. I think that would work, as would Jackal. And they're all Konami games!

  • lionheart_mlionheart_m Registered User regular
    Double Dragon 2 isn't hard...now Double Dragon 3...

    I'd say maybe an R Type or Gradius. I'm having a hard time remembering a coop game. Maybe TMNT2 or 3?

    Yeah Super C would be nice eventually, but for now I'd like them to move on to something completely different.

    That's the thing: what is the criteria for this feature in terms of difficulty? Right now we know the game has to be at Contra levels of difficulty or easier, but not Battletoads hard.

    There's not really a chart to go by in terms of difficulty. It's really more scuttlebutt and "Oh I heard that game was impossible!"

    Like are they gonna do TMNT next?
