This article had me shaking my head at the state of modern journalism:

Video games proven to cause cardiac arrest

It was actually worse in the newspaper I read it in, as the article was on page 5 or so, but half the front page of the paper was the headline: "Parents gaming warning: Children black out while playing computer games"

All that can really be concluded from the article is that having a rare and serious heart abnormality is bad for you.

Interdimensional portals... Even handles nesting somehow.

Working on a boss fight based on the Fungal Demogorgon from Stranger Things. You have to hunt it through dimensions: Rumbridge (a town), Azathoth (a dimension where some of the Old Ones come from), and the Multimaximum (a cosmic acid trip). In each area, the Demogorgon has unique attacks, such as turning the villagers into fungal wights.

The lightning in Rumbridge was a bug that I documented and made a feature. I think it looks great.

Happy 4 year anniversary to the "Thread locks too soon" thread!!

Sometimes I wonder if our benevolent leader would return if we let this thread die, but I'm also concerned with all things imploding if that were to happen.

So in the meantime: 4 8 15 16 23 42

They basically killed each other off season by season. Waited so many years for the finale, and it was just so lame. Jack? Bah.

I thought you were talking about Game of Thrones then I read Onewing's post.

Still not sure which you're talking about. ;D

Perhaps my duplicity was merely unintentional. It could also be purely coincidental as I've never watched a single GoT episode in my life.

In other news, Piccolo is now over 9,000!!!!1111

Just an Update Guys. I have become enlighten to the first stage. I used the Scriptures in and outside of Bible to become enlighten. I have figured out how to teach enlightenment. when you become enlighten you can invent any technology. I plan on teaching this enlightenment in Africa first than the rest of the world. I found a few people on youtube that are enlighten however most don't know how to teach it.

wow

So you're lost then?

They're worth watching, except for the last season. Just watch seasons 1-7 then read the last book, when it finally gets released (I read book 1 over 20 years ago!!).

Hehe nice. Maybe I should publish it as a book? Although it would be a very thin book.

Somehow that makes it sound political.

Okay, how about a 'zine then?

Seriously, we should bring back that allegro zine, what was it called again?

edit: Suggest some topics!

Got a DSLR and have been playing around with it. I got to go on the roof of my office building a few nights ago and get a photo of Uptown Charlotte at night.

Slightly over-exposed but I'm learning...
