  1. ... lurk, lurk, lurk...  *leaves you a copy of the Principia Discordia*  ... lurk, lurk, lurk...

      You know this is the second time someone has brought that up because of my username. I had no idea what it was originally. I may have to actually read the book though. It sounds intriguing.

  2. What did Anakin Skywalker do? (prequels)

    a. Bring balance to the force

    b. Leave it (the force) in darkness

    c. Destroy the Sith

      The imbalance presumably being that it was too far on the good side with no mediators. The good jedi would tell you there's no need for anything that opposes them though and that in itself would be the problem.

  3. Mario Kart 8 kinda sucks.

      I haven't been able to get into Mario Kart since Double Dash. They all seemed to lack something, some kind of flair, that DD had.

      I've heard it said that he truly did bring balance to the force since it seemed to be mostly good jedi with a few powerful sith. After all he and Palpatine did it basically wiped the slate clean for the jedi once they were defeated.

  5. First few minutes of 2019, let's hope the rest will be great!

      Within five minutes of midnight I saw fire trucks, ambulances and police cars going in every direction. Yup, this year is starting out great. :laugh:

  6. Driving home, listening to the radio:

     "Gosh, wish I knew what the title to this song was. Pretty amazing how it's catchy enough despite being pretty much just chanting the word "Lights" over again."

     Radio DJ: "...and that was... "Lights."

    Me: *crashes car as he just cracked his skull from facepalming so hard.*

      I miss the metal station for my area. It shut down back in 2011. They used to say the name of the song and band after every single song. It should be the standard for radio to do that, really.

  7. Is 100mbps fast or not? I don't know anything about that stuff. XD

    1. Discordian

      Discordian

      Anything faster than 50 is pretty good. You barely need 30 to play video games online, if even that. If you get that consistently there's little you wouldn't be able to do with it.

  8. Huh. Apparently they debunked the theory that the Final Fantasy series was named so because it was originally going to be Squaresoft's last game. It literally could have been any word that started with F to match the Fantasy bit. Final just sounded cool. :laugh:

      I wouldn't be surprised. He's as iconic as Cloud for the series.

      Not that it's really difficult to do, you just have to actually play the way the game wants you to if you want to beat it.

      The strength of enemies will raise with your level. Unlike more traditional RPGs like FF4 your stats will have a hard time keeping up. You actually have to use the game's mechanics to boost your own strength and give you proper abilities. You can't just grind your way to victory and in fact that would just make the game that much more difficult.

      Can't go wrong with any of those really. Be wary of 8 though. It plays pretty differently and it's easy to make your life difficult by complete accident.

      Gotta pump those numbers up. The series is chock full of great games. 4 is one of the weakest games, actually.

  13. Random pet peeve of the day: when you go to buy a music album and find out there's no MP3 version for sale or you're required to buy a CD to get it. I don't even have any devices that can play CDs anymore. Fuck you and your archaic media. :|

    1. Discordian

      Discordian

      I have neither the need nor the space for it. I'm not buying a CD player for two or three albums. If they don't want their music accessible then they don't get my sale, simple as that.

  14. Attention all Switch players! Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is finally here! Go to your nearest game shop and buy the game NOW!

    1. Discordian

      Discordian

      Smash 4 failed to keep my attention for more than a few hours. Hopefully Ultimate will be better. I hear it brings back a Subspace Emissary-like mode which was something I spent a lot of time co-oping with people.

       

      I don't even have a Switch yet so I guess I have time to scope it out though.

  15. Ready for winter?

      Hey, just cuz I don't like heat and brightness doesn't mean I hate everything. I'm just inclined differently.

      I've been ready for winter since the weather started turning hot again last March. I can't stand the heat. Or the sun. Or how busy it gets at work. :P

  19. Every time I hear classical instruments being used in a dubstep/deathstep song, I just imagine Octavia collaborating with Vinyl during the production of the song. I also imagine that Octavia has mastered every single string instrument in addition to the cello. :P

  20. I don’t think England knows how Black Friday works. It’s the 4th of December. You have to stop. :sealed:

      It's honestly better to continue the sales over a larger period. More chances to get good deals, lower chances to get trampled.

  21. Huh. I hate it when both my alarms fail to wake me up in the morning. :stressed: I clearly remember having them set last night, but they somehow turned off.

    1. Discordian

      Discordian

      I will literally turn my alarms off in my sleep without waking up. I have multiple alarms on multiple devices and I'll autopilot all of them if I'm not careful. :laugh:

      Thanks for reminding me they exist. Guess now's as good as time as any to buy an album.

  23. What. Someone just tried to tell me that the Christmas song "It's Cold Outside" promotes date rape. LOLWHAT

      That's pretty much exactly what my response was. People are craycray.

  24. How long/much should a person know about eaxhother before they get engaged?

    1. Discordian

      Discordian

      When you're absolutely sure you want to stay with them in the long term and there's no doubts about the relationship working out. It doesn't have to be a set time though. It could be anywhere from a few months to several years. There's a lot to consider though such as whether you're financially stable enough for it, and any future plans like kids, if you don't already have any.

       

      Of course, there's no hardline rules about it. If two people are both ready for it and want it then there's no reason to delay. At the very least it can, and should, be talked about long before the engagement actually happens. Springing it on someone is a good way to run into a situation no one's ready for.

  25. Aaaaw yeah, crank up that Christmas music. 'Tis the season.

    1. Discordian

      Discordian

      Absolutely. I'm mostly a fan of the oldies when it comes to Christmas music but that song definitely did something right to be counted as an equal to them.
