My mother wants me to solve some bullshit mathematical excersie because I had bad points on my math exam, and this annoys me immensely.

Why do people bring so much hacking into pokemon?  Yes a lot of older people like myself play it, but it's anything but serious business. It pisses me off when I try for a couple quick online matches and get two separate people with obviously illegitimate pokemon.

Yes I'm sure you both got 6 shiny ubers completely legitimately, and look at how much damage they are doing!  You must have gotten good natures as well! Clearly you are the luckiest people in the world!  Allow me to bow before you as I still manage to kill off 2 of those overpowered e-peen boosters with a crappy not IV bred Zoroark!

...This is annoying me more than it probably should.
On the flip side, some people I know insist on breeding IVs themselves, grinding the pokemons up to level 100 and egg-breeding moves...

Hacking is a lot faster.

A lot. A massively, hugely, ridiculously gigantic lot.

Personally, I'd say go for it. Stay within the limits of the game and give some people warning about what you're doing, but for the love of all that is and isn't, save the bloody time.

Trying to install mods for Minecraft makes me rage.  So much.  It drives me to violent impulses.  I've been modding almost every game I play for the past 18 years, and not a single one has ever been half as frustrating as all the compatibility issues and detailed file management necessary just to get the most basic shit to work in Minecraft.  But my kids will never ever ever let it go once they've seen something they want to try.  Whhyyyyyy the fuck couldn't this game's infrastructure have been designed somewhat sensibly.  Why does it have to be this fucking Java bullshit that doesn't make any sense.  Why do I have to fuck around with these .jar archives that have a million fucking files in them with no coherent naming scheme that have to be dug around in to be individually replaced and renamed.  Why do there have to be all these stupid modloader mods that I have to tear my hair out trying to get working just to enable other mods.  Why are there 50 million versions of the game and almost every mod ever made for the game has stopped being updated at some different point in the game's development, so I constantly have to switch out game versions, and re-install different modloaders to match those game versions every fucking time some other stupid trinket catches my kid's interest.   AAAAAGGGHHHH

There are third party apps that make it a -bit- easier.

Plus I thought the newest minecraft launcher emulated those third party apps, to a degree at any rate? o-o

Teach your kid to do it himself? Or even better, do nothing - he'll learn it himself.

I did teach him to do it himself a long time ago.  I got a system down with him where I had a bunch of zip files containing every major combination of game version/modloader he was likely to need, and showed him how to use them to replace the game files to match whatever he wanted to do.  Then he stopped playing it for over a year.  Now suddenly he's into it again and fucking everything has changed.  I can't even find the game files anymore.

I thought ModLoader and Forge got  more sophisticated so that most mods can be installed just by plopping the jar files in the mods folder.

Unfortunately, this tends to result in conflicts.

My friends argue that part of the fun in pokemon is spending all that time grinding your team up for competitive.

My response is to call them crazy and addicted to a manipulative gaming system, but still. Then again, I play dungeon crawler roguelikes.

As the comments pointed out, we have plenty of brownfield sites around the country, and simply dumping trees somewhere else doesn't mystically make something have all the wildlife that was in the original place.

What the FUCK is wrong with governments? They have some inability to see long term, and only go for the short-term.
This assumes rational actor theory; that a government is acting as a single, cohesive, rational entity. It doesn't account for contradictions very well other then assuming "stupids gonna stupid", which is unfortunately very common. The other two theories, Organizational and Political, find it easy to explain why a government would do this, or anything seemingly short-sighted.

I'm reading a Radical Feminist blog while I watch Dateline do a thing on children that are bullied because they look unusual and are considering plastic surgery from what I think is a charity.  As I hear and read, each makes arguments for their causes, using terms like "normal".  One is trying to conform people to social expectations while the other is trying to destroy those expectations.  The way in which they go about it causes them to be contradictory to such an extent that you would think there would be a time-space paradox that rips the universe apart.  I think you'd have to be reading and watching both to get what I'm saying but --


-- I'm raging at words, and the crap that happens when people try to use them.

Quote from: Chesterton
For, in order that men should resist injustice, something more is necessary than that they should think injustice unpleasant. They must think injustice absurd; above all, they must think it startling. They must retain the violence of a virgin astonishment. When the pessimist looks at any infamy, it is to him, after all, only a repetition of the infamy of existence. But the optimist sees injustice as something discordant and unexpected, and it stings him into action.
