I remember watching images appear line by line. Those were also the days of terrible Geocities freesites loaded with GIFs of dancing babies and praying dogs in bonnets. The quality of the information hasn't gotten any better than "generally dubious" to "howling lies out of an open window" but at least you aren't reading grey text on a textured red background.

Interesting little video.

Back when "An internet" and "cum-pehw-turr" were in the lexicon.

Back when 'puter was an acceptable thing to say, and people cared about your monitor's killer refresh rate.

Have you guys played Brothers: A tale of two sons? It is pretty much amazing... I'm wondering if this can topple Journey for best art game ever made.

I finally got around to getting myself a commonplace book. Finally a place to cram my stray ideas and such. :u

My grin is ear to ear.

Anyway, snow is incoming and temperatures are dropping, which is always nice. I also stumbled across a theorist on CSTDT that claims Obama was kidnapped by the Symbionese Liberation Army (Inspirer of the LCS for those who don't know) as a child, which made me smile.

It makes me wonder if he's crazy and makes stuff up, crazy and his brain tells him things, crazy from too many drugs which caused him to hallucinate stuff, a sane liar, or he actually found someone else who wrote that stuff down with good citations and went "yeah this looks good".

I bought Ogre today. Took me a few hours to put together all of the minis and pop out all of the units, hexes, and miscellanea and my back hurt afterward, but it was worth it.

Oh dear. I followed a paper trail and ended up at Wikipedia's article of Sovreign citizens, where US District Court notes
Quote
Defendant [Kenneth Wayne Leaming] is apparently a member of a group loosely styled “sovereign citizens.” The Court has deduced this from a number of Defendant’s peculiar habits. First, like Mr. Leaming, sovereign citizens are fascinated by capitalization. They appear to believe that capitalizing names has some sort of legal effect. For example, Defendant writes that “the REGISTERED FACTS appearing in the above Paragraph evidence the uncontroverted and uncontrovertible FACTS that the SLAVERY SYSTEMS operated in the names UNITED STATES, United States, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, and United States of America . . . are terminated nunc pro tunc by public policy, U.C.C. 1-103 . . . .” (Def.’s Mandatory Jud. Not. at 2.) He appears to believe that by capitalizing “United States,” he is referring to a different entity than the federal government. For better or for worse, it’s the same country.

Second, sovereign citizens, like Mr. Leaming, love grandiose legalese. “COMES NOW, Kenneth Wayne, born free to the family Leaming, [date of birth redacted], constituent to The People of the State of Washington constituted 1878 and admitted to the union 22 February 1889 by Act of Congress, a Man, “State of Body” competent to be a witness and having First Hand Knowledge of The FACTS . . . .” (Def.’s Mandatory Jud. Not. at 1.)

Third, Defendant evinces, like all sovereign citizens, a belief that the federal government is not real and that he does not have to follow the law. Thus, Defendant argues that as a result of the “REGISTERED FACTS,” the “states of body, persons, actors and other parties perpetuating the above captioned transaction(s) [i.e., the Court and prosecutors] are engaged . . . in acts of TREASON, and if unknowingly as victims of TREASON and FRAUD . . . .” (Def.’s Mandatory Jud. Not. at 2.)

The Court therefore feels some measure of responsibility to inform Defendant that all the fancy legal-sounding things he has read on the internet are make-believe......

That looks like the coolest thing ever.
