And I once savescummed because I got injured while cleansing a town in DF.
Code: [Select]
dfhack die
Note that the reason I do this is so I can let out anger on those simulated "people". So hyped for the villains update so I can do less murderous things while still being evil.

The guy in the article I linked believes that e.g. a complex boss such as Bowser might be some % as sentient as a human (because Bowser exhibits goal-driven behavior), and that % is very, very small, so killing one Bowser is insignificant, but if enough players kill Bowser over and over then it's adds up in a cumulative fashion to a Bowser Holocaust which is morally significant.

That moral math begs the question of how many Bowser-lives are worth one human lives, or how many real humans you'd kill to save how many Bowsers in Super Mario.

Right now the only argument I will affect as valid is "killing npcs is immoral because it simulates killing real people".
I've killed cave crocodiles in DF by teleporting them 15 z-levels off the ground (using gui/teleport). How am I supposed to pull off telekinetic crocodile-killing?



@MaxTheFox, you can use DFhack full-heal while in your character's status screen to fully heal your character.

Not if you are instakilled. Happens occasionally even through adamantine armor.

I mean by that measure police, military and self-defense training are more morally dubious as the virtual sphere is much more hypothetical. To me it's all just a reactonnary backlash "music of the devil" kind of thing.

IIRC, DFhack full heal -r revives you. That, or you could try ghostly, full-heal, and ghostly, in that order. That one has a rather unsettling outcome, though: the revived-you can see and interact with your own corpse.

I only ever do fortress, and only ever single player.

I haven't touched adventure mode in so long... let's be honest usually because I like to leave myself a full set of adamantine plate if I ever want to make an adventurer


Also the Woolworths (grocery store) in my city had no red capsicum for like six months and suddenly there's red capsicum everywhere. I'm wondering if they missed a season or something but it was weird as hell and nobody seems to have mentioned anything about it.

Had one of those "connect with someone you knew in school whom you haven't seen or heard from in many years and rediscover a meaningful relationship that never existed in real life" dreams. Always a corker, innit? It was a pleasant, well-crafted dream, sure, I just kinda wish the subject matter was a little less ridiculous and didn't get me pointlessly wondering what might have been. ::)   

Also I was holding a big bag of delicious takeaway food when the dream ended, and when I woke up I was holding no food. Gypped.

Red capsicum, best capsicum. You should sue the bastards for depriving you!
Or maybe like, start buying your fruit 'n' veg somewhere else...

Turns out it was due to a heat wave, so the only 'somewhere else' I could have gotten my capsicum from would've been imports.
Although I have been pretty slack in buying from the grocer across from the woolies ever since I gave them a cursory google and found out it's a huge chain.

Something sort of like that happened in my region of the US not too long ago. One week it's normal. The next, every single thing has hatch chilie in it. My best guess at the time was that some farmers were trying to drum up a new fad food or something.

propane dispenser re-certification time! Videos are 4 hours long. Four fucking hours of videos. Most of it doesnt even cover relevant information for the quiz they gave us. I'm convinced these are still the wrong video set, but we've already contacted them about that and they just told us to continue. I have an entire 2-hour section covering inspecting pumping equipment, filling (our) stationary tank from (their) truck, and covering diagnosing and fixing the pump, none of which is on the quiz nor will we be performing any of these tasks. Yet according to how its supposed to be taken, in order, these videos should cover section 4 in the quiz. I cannot answer any of these questions from the information in the videos.

Best yet, I'm the only employee here who has ever been certified before, so what cant be answered in the videos I'm going to be helping the other guys fill in.
