    Minor victory thread

    That's a thing that happens when a) the person hiring was misleading or outright dishonest about the work, b) the pay is absolutely not enough for the job, or c) the people you're actually working with or reporting to make it intolerable. It's not something that will happen with any regularity...

    Whats for Dinner?

    It's got a bit more purple to it, but now that you mention it I can see it. For anyone who's wondering - it's not great, the "cotton candy" aspect adds kind of a cloying sweetness to the whole thing, but it's not nearly as bad as I expected it to be. I wouldn't want to by any stretch, but I...

    Whats for Dinner?

    Saw it, had to try it.

    What are you playing?

    I'd really recommend taking a deep dive on the Steam Workshop and trying out some of the gameplay-altering mods rather than trying to slog through a run on the highest difficulty of the basic game. There are full overhauls of the character classes, gear, psionics, MECs, enemy AI, enemy unit...

    Canadian Politics

    Getting 5% of the vote as the explicitly xenophobic, racist option still says some bad things about a whole lot of Canadians, though.

    Closest thing we have, anyway.

    Canadian Politics

    To be clear, I absolutely don't want the Conservatives to gain at all, and I understand that the two options I presented aren't the most likely outcomes here, but in terms of potential for harm to the country I don't see major differences between nominally-Left Trudeau having unchecked power or...

    Canadian Politics

    I'm trying to decide which is worse between a Trudeau majority and a Conservative minority. Either way nothing positive is likely to happen between now and the next election, whenever that ends up being.

    Rant VIII: The Reckoning

    Not on the same level, but I learned a few days ago that my aunt - who is otherwise a kind, helpful, caring person - is also very racist. "Real Canadians" to mean "people who don't have accents", refusal to vote NDP even though they otherwise align with her beliefs because she "won't vote for a...

    [Music] Metal Thread

    This collab is everything I want in music. Song starts at 1:42 if the video's not speaking to you.

    Valheim

    That's a lot more than I expected to be included in the update (rebalancing of weapons sounds pretty interesting!), but I don't think it's enough to go back and play more. Hopefully they've got their workflow sorted and enough bugs solved that future updates come a bit more quickly.

    What are you playing?

    This was a conscious effort by the devs to make it so "Overwatch and wait literally forever for something to wander by" wasn't the clear best choice on every turn on every map like it was in the first game. The effects aren't always positive, depending on how you feel about engagements starting...

    [Brazelton] Michael K Williams

    Sure, there are lots of reasons not to watch tv shows, especially multi-season ones that demand hours and hours of time and attention. I don't think there's a lot of value in shaming peoples' hobbies in general, regardless of what they are. That said, if you're going to give someone shit for...

    I'm trying to imagine a world where not watching Community is more worthy of shaming than not watching The Wire, and I can't do it.

    If "the piss" is the giant piles of money people keep giving them, over and over, for Skyrim? Yes.

    [Movies] Talk about the last movie you saw 2: Electric Threadaloo

    The Tomorrow War is absolutely awful. The premise is stupid, the details are stupid, the conclusion is stupid. I could go into detail, but that'd be more effort than the writers put into the script, so I'm not going to. Just terrible.

    Whine like a baby, now with 500% more drama!

    It does suck, and it's to your credit that you're concerned about what's best for the dog as well. It also sounds like you're leaning too heavily on that side of things, though - risking the health of your family, friends, neighbours, and strangers out on the street so that a foster dog with a...

    Whine like a baby, now with 500% more drama!

    Not to be overly blunt about this, but - seriously? You're now fostering a dog that has a history of biting, that's caused serious injury to a family member who didn't provoke it. You acknowledge that you're not equipped to train it, your wife isn't comfortable with it, and you're still making...

    A Loki Place for Spoilers

    There was a mid-credits stinger saying "Loki will return in Season 2."
