Its still weird that I can rob entire shops blind and not take a single point of karma loss.

...Yeah, that's the good old days of kleptomaniac heroes who would walk into people's houses and take everything that wasn't nailed down. Despite how annoying it may be I think it is improvement that F3 and forwards stealing is seen as a bad thing even if you aren't taking stuff from someone's pocket.

Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Aye; if nothing else, it makes remaining karmically positive more difficult.  Sorry, wastelanders, but Ultima VII taught me that success lies not in the Eight Virtues, but in serial kleptomania.

I just saw a reddit thread where an Anarcho capitalist was defending pedophiles because "fuck statists" and an Alt-right neo-nazi was arguing with him "because faggots need to be thrown in the oven with the kikes." Note that this was commentary on a video where Milo Yiannapopusomething was defending pedophiles because "it is actually about ethics in game journalism."

...These are strange times.

Mods are essentially the video game equivalent of fanfiction.

Also, that would make Minecraft the video game equivalent of Harry Potter (though the decent to shit ratio for Minecraft mods is orders of magnitude higher than it is for Harry Potter fanfiction).

Speeding tickets are real life microtransactions for a speed boost.

People who take pictures of their food are basically taking pictures of their next shit.

Some of us are still "it" from a childhood game of tag.

Children in the back seat can cause accidents, and accidents in the back seat can cause children.

In "The Walking Dead", everyone is preoccupied with the monsters when the humans are the real threat. In "Game of Thrones", everyone is preoccupied with the humans when the monsters are the real threat.

The new EU gun laws have now been decided...

Depending on how our government treats them our gun laws might become much more lax than they have previously been. This despite the fact that EU wanted to make much more strict gun laws.



EDIT: I saw a claim that the "villain fandom" doesn't like Trump even though he is clearly a villain as he is neither smart, charismatic or have a sympathetic motivation and that this is a common thing with real world dictators compared to fictional villains.

I call bullshit on this. It's just too soon. Do have any idea how many people idolize Hitler? Have you heard his speeches? Seen any pictures of him? He may not have been played by Sir Christopher Lee and Stephanie Meyer didn't write his speeches but he sure seems popular. (Also, his background of "I went to a war and the only injury I got was syphilis so naturally I blame the Jews" isn't particularly awesome or sympathetic.)

I bet that 10 years from now Trump fanbase will still be as fanatical as now and he will already have an "ironic" fandom and in 20 years historical revisionists will make him out to be a hero for their cause.

Didn't Hitler lose a nut in the Great War, as well?  He also lost most of a very commanding mustache.

Hitler was in hospital during the war but for him, like it was for a considerable number of "casualties" during the war, the "injuries" came from a prostitute rather than the guns of their enemies.

So I find it rather interesting that as the descendant of a group of people who were at some points slaves for a long stretch of time I in The Elder Scrolls play a race (Argonians) that was also a slave for a long stretch of time.

381 redirects (from FQA to FSTDT Forums) and I'll bet most of them are me.

Maybe flat-Earth believers don't really exist. ...Could it be that they are merely an elaborate hoax created for a sinister cause?
