Shouldn't the whole site be done in pink? Some unicorns would be funny too.

We draw the line at unicorns sir.

Unicorns, rainbows, Care Bears, Rainbow Brite, Smurfs.


Ok, serious question, no lie: Where do Bronies fit in?

Also, I think that Cynthia Lennon link has an unclosed href tag. The whole page after it is a link to that story.

Yeah, Blue likes to do that sometimes. Cuts down on the posts he has to look at.

Alexa. Press my Amazon Dash Butter button for me. My muscles have atrophied and I need more butter for my Cinnabon. Press the Amazon Dash Paramedics button too. I think my heart stopped.

Well done!

No joke, careful with the Game Over link, at least I'm having issues. Until your sure, don't enable scripts it's got a pretty low rating with Web of Trust

Shoot Blue an email, he doesn't always see every post.

And that's for the heads up.

Beamer, I realize that Cutter posted a disparaging and probably offensive comment directed at Sarkeesian. There is very little (if any) sexual context attached to the comment as I see it, so how is it sexist? He is basically telling someone off. Someone who is female, which is why he used a female pronoun. Is it because he called her honey? I honestly want to know, Im not trying to bait you or anything.
Where did he riff on her sexuality?

The fact that this even needs explaining shows how far a lot gamers (particularly certain frequent posters on Blues) need to go in getting in touch with the real world.

When a male refers to an adult female who he doesn't know and has no personal relationship with as "honey," "sweetie," "sugar," "cupcake," or any other term that implies females aren't human but instead a tasty treat awaiting consumption, it is called "casual sexism." They are throwaway labels designed to reinforce the dominant power relationship of men over women by implying that women should be "nice girls" while guys have the prerogative to be asshats.

In the real world, if I were to refer to a female co-worker by any of those terms, the least I could expect would be an icy stare. Worst case scenario, I'd be called up to the boss for a talking-to and likely be required to take one of those god-awful online sexual harassment seminars.

In short, calling a female you've never met "honey" is sexist and offensive. I have no doubt Cutter intended his comment that way.

Did that clarify things for you?


What happens if it's a girl calling a guy honey, or sweetie or things of that nature. I frequently get it from waitresses and the like, due to my 'youthful' looks.

I get that all the time from waitresses around here.

How do these morons find us?

my wtf moment of the month (waited until the last day)

I am not sure how I feel about this, but I have an Amazon Echo in the middle of the house, so we haev music going almost all the time. My son was hanging out, so I said "Alexa, play children's music" and this came on.....

so.....as a father....not sure if this is good or not. I mean, the sound is actually pretty amazing, and I am very impressed with the quality...but the fact that my son would listen to NIN....as a lullaby.....I mean.....how f'd am I making him out of the gate....I mean.....shit....I just don't know what to think about this....you have to hear it - it is amazing, yet.....f-d up!

nin would approve.

ironic if he didn't XD

I keep meaning to grab those cds...

WTF

$150 here. Don't regret it, will probably buy more.

For the record, Chris Roberts IS a snake-oil salesman, but his snake-oil is so damn good. I simply can't help myself. Foolish? Absolutely. Loving it? Every fucking minute.

Sony is bleeding cash right now. They are selling any that has any value. I would not surprised to see Sony get out of the games arena entirely if their cash position does not improve.

Are you kidding? Sony's Game division is the only thing keeping them afloat. The PS4 success IS about the only going for Sony right now, getting out of that is suicide for them.

His positivity in all things is overflowing. Check out his post history...

Turned 40 today, and planned on celebrating with ordering GTA5, but first to get groceries. Hit a ATM (I seem to do better with cash then pulling out the card) get 40 bucks for groceries, do my shopping and go to check out and dropped the cash pulling out my phone to check for coupons (dear lord never thought I would use them), trace my steps back through the store, and see a women with her kid counting money in the isle I was last in. I ask if by chance she had seen me drop money in the isle and starts blowing up at me. Her kid starts screaming and crying, and I just walk away thinking 'welcome to middle age'.
Good news is I start a new job this week so no more donating plasma for money and living paycheck to paycheck.

If I ever meet this 'God' person, I want 2 things.
1)I want to see a government issued ID
2)I want a fucking refund.


Happy Birthday, brother. Better days are ahead. (I mean, I've heard. )

40 for me this year as well. But no panic attack the day of. Progress?

Nippin at the heels of both of you old geezers.....but mine is next week.

WOOT! Level up HELFIE!
+1 Common Sense
-1 Toe Touch Ability
+.5 Grey
+3 "OFF MY LAWN" volume
+Achivement "On Top of The Hill"


Don't forget + 1 ear hair. That just showed up out of the blue a few years ago. "WTF?!"
