    Watching TC's video about LED traffic lights and the kerfluffle about them not melting snow (and how it's a rare and easily solvable problem).

    Is there a more powerful/exploitable human cognitive bias than "new thing is bad"?

    Instead of dunking on RP1 can I continue to dunk on the incredibly explicit and unsexy writing in Altered Carbon

    There's a very detailed scene and the lady's boobs are described as 'elusive globes' (because it's girl on top for a while and they're swinging around I guess?) and they are mentioned as having 'springy resistance' which is rather offputting in context.

    It's just...blechhh. All his sex writing is so specific and unsensual and also gross, and I can't tell if it's because the book has elements of alienation from one's body (but I feel like he discusses those explicitly when they seem relevant to him, rather than it being something that pervades the whole book, tbh). or if that's just what happens when you apply his detailed, visual writing style to these encounters.

    That said, the gross sex scene is followed by a fantastic and much longer techwear and gun shopping scene, so, I don't really mind. In general the action scenes are good and the urban decay descriptions are also well done.

    Standard Received Pronunciation (and NOT Icelandic, which Tolkien wanted but the rest of the cultured world rejected): the King's/Queen's English

    A culture that is a goofy relic of the past and weirdly monotonal and emotionless whilst proclaiming the supremacy of their race: 1920s Mid-Atlantic radio voice

    My superior theory to reflect a greying population watching their ancient culture be sullied and ultimately subsumed by a decadent modern west: Japanese

    Ceddy's inferior theory, based on a subversion of how Dwarves appear to be the ultimate drunken, hard-fighting, hard-fucking townies: Boston townie

    honorable mentions:
    California Stoner vocal fry (High Elves)
    Icelandic/Norse (Tolkien's original vision)
    French (because of course)
    Australian (for the antipodean Drows)

    I've been playing MHW in Japanese because it makes the Handler far easier to deal with, so the Wyverians are totally elves and totally count as sounding Japanese.

    The adaptive triggers on the DualSense controller also allow us to increase trigger resistance as stamina drains, meaning you’ll feel the effects of players’ tiredness as their fitness decreases throughout the game. This is only available on PS5, and we’re excited for you to feel the difference the DualSense makes to FIFA 21, immersing you into the intensity of a match in ways that weren’t possible before.

    @bloodyroarxx lmao this sounds awful

    Satan would make sure the chips were salt free, vegan, gluten free, soy free, fat free, kosher, no parabens, all natural ingredients and peanut free because Karen’s son’s friend David who visits sometimes is very allergic to various nuts.

    I feel like that's actually Heaven, which is so considerate and inoffensive as to be dreary and depressing

    Hell is obviously the salt-brined sea in chip form, because it's bad for you but it feels so good

    No, Heaven would have one chip, where upon touching the eater’s lips would become whatever they desired.

    You gotta keep in mind the Wal-Mart worker has to get the kind of chip I laid out after working a double shift and has to appear at a mandatory holiday party AT WORK, so where else is the worker gonna get the chip? Wal-Mart.

    Wal-Mart ain’t gonna have the kind of chip the worker requires. Torture is gonna be spending agonizing time the worker doesn’t have to go to a holiday party they don’t want to go to, to find this mythical chip in a store famous for parking lot fights and selling guns next to children’s toys

    I feel like urban fantasy (as much as I love it) has gotten kinda tedious due to its complete bankruptcy as a wellspring for original visions, always sort of defaulting to a sort of postmodern "what if X in Y", but I do appreciate the idea of cyberpunk non-humans in general

    I think we should also uplift cats when we reach that level of cybermancy and would appreciate a book that has this as a feature (but not dogs, who must remain pure)
