    This is the most chaotic thing you've ever posted.

    man I know we've talked about this before but Jake Gyllenhaal is so much better as a weirdo creep a la Phillip Seymour Hoffman

    stop letting him try to be a leading man!

    Yeah? He did it with a thought. That's so beyond human comprehension that you should hesitate at the very least.

    IIRC when RPO first came out, a lot of people thought that the over-the-top 80s nostalgia fest was a deliberate choice with some deeper meaning, tied specifically to that story and its protagonist. Then the author’s next book had the same exact style, and folks finally realized that this was just How Ernest Cline Writes.

    Ironically I'd rather have a serious discussion of Cline's poetry than to make a thread about it in D&D, so I guess we are at an impasse

    Jake Gyllenhaal is Crispin Glover-levels of Good At Creepy. The man has a gift, and it's high time he stopped running from it!

    one of the lamest things about Ernest Cline is that he owns the real version of the "seriously enough with the references, christ" delorean that the main character of RPO has.

    For all the hate RPO rightly gets, it kinda sounds like Armada is worse? I've had this review burned in my mind since I read it almost a decade ago

    https://slate.com/culture/2015/07/armada-by-ernest-cline-follow-up-to-ready-player-one-reviewed.html

    Everything about this sounds miserable. Also it has a picture of him and that fucking car.

    just... it baffles me that with modern technology and years of speculative fiction, the best Ernest Cline's got is

    what if Second Life, but the One Piece is stored in it somewhere?

    there's a part where the main character has to re-enact the entirety of War Games to complete a puzzle. god, fuck you

    I understand cline got a toehold by relentlessly personally flogging his dreadful pap, like driving around with a trunk full of the things to any venue peddling books

    What’s the boiling point of piss

    "The boiling point of the urine is 130°C, which is very high compared to the boiling point of water." (Wang, X., Chen, J., et. al. (2023) Nutrient recovery technologies for management of blackwater: A review.)

    Armada is worse, it just also got way less exposure so it didn't feel as egregious

    Autoclaving goes to 121°C, apparently, with elevated pressure. would that be enough to also boil the piss, I wonder

    Though I think Ready Player Two might be worse than both

    I moved back in with my parents in June 2016. One of mom's friends gave her a copy of Armada to give to me, so I would have something to read, so I wouldn't spend some much time in the internet or something

    They thought it had a cool cover design and it was up front at some bookstore

    I read like three pages and threw it in the recycling bin

    What a dreadful thing

    What's crazier to me is that it's just Snowcrash with the VIN number scratched off and the plot reduced to a battle anime tournament arch.

    Like at least Snowcrash was about how the internet would destroy us.
