Re: Discussion: Video Games

Yeah I can see that. Bet the developers and idea folks in places like google can get a little bit myopic about the sorts of technology that's at their disposal. Theirs is always the best out there, so they might fail to realize there are still lots of people who don't have anything close. And even i...

Re: What is three twins?

Three twins? Seems pretty clear. Two mothers and one of them's still in labour :lol: In seriousness I think Rick was just being funny, because when you get technical "twins" specifically refers to 2, and not any other number. If you have triplets, calling them "twins" would be as incorrect as saying...

Re: What Are You Doing Today?

The parents rented a little lake-lodge for a week.
They've invited my brother and I (and our aunt) up to join them for the day.

We're all just getting ready to get in the car. :D

Only thing that could make this better is if I wasn't the only one of us who could drive it :mrgreen:

Re: 2020/07/22 - Directorial Debut

Sounds like an old Doom or Descent level... I mean literally. I had the strategy guide for the first Descent from 1995; most of the level walkthroughs actually read like this :D

That alt-text really cracked me up for some reason.

About a week ago, Space Force on netflix. But there wasn't enough time for a full binge so I had to spread it out over the week :) Apparently reviewers didn't think it was very funny. Weird. I guess a lot of the jokes didn't entirely fit the mold of "american humour". Maybe it went over their heads ...

No, true, you don't do any favours by rushing. And not rushing does an especially big favour to the monster that's coming to eat you.
On a related note, nobody start rushing here, m'kay? I'm hungry.

The title immediately makes me think of The Tragically Hip but I doubt that's what Rick intended :)
