My computer cannot run Space Engineers. And Minecrap plain sucks. Dwarf Fortress master race.

I'm awake since thursday 5:00 am, at this point I think adrenaline took over neurotransmitters because I'm not even sleepy anymore. I wonder if we can sleep awake like dolphins, numbing parts of your brain at times so you can stay "awake" forever or something.

EDIT: ALso it's 11:00 pm of Friday here and I have a whole night shift today so there won't be sleep for at least 12 hours more.

I'm curious as to how a tank would evolve. Would it climb out of the primordial ooze wiggling it's track-nubs, feeding on smaller jeeps before crawling onto the shore having evolved proper treds?

Nah, we can't and trying for too long likes to kill us. Day or two tends to feel like shit, but it's survivable without general concern. Want to say it's either less than a week or less than two without sleep that starts rolling the bones on fatal. Probably a good idea to get some rest.

Minecraft can be fairly interesting once you hit it repeatedly with the modding hammer, so long as your computer can handle it. Mine can't, sadly.

For a short while I spiced up minecraft using Industrialcraft, which allowed you to build machine and form little assembly lines for certain things.

Then I realized Factorio existed which does the whole gimmick better and actually gives you a point to build all that crap.

And DF will get moving fortress parts (conveyor belts among other things) in about 10 years.

If all you're running is one mod, you probably haven't hit it hard enough with the modding hammer yet :P also if all you have is the one and don't want to spend money on/"aquire" factorio, well...

... beyond that there's apparently custom built maps and whatnot that add goals and all that rot if you're looking for that sort of thing. Been a while since I muddled about with it much, but things were fairly sophisticated like... a year or two ago. Probably advanced even further since.

TIL that "my pocket gun doesn't need a safety because the trigger is hard to pull, and I like to walk around with a bullet in the chamber because what if I forget to cock my gun when I run into all of these active shooters" is an acceptable statement to a distressingly large number of people.

By the way, a child shot a sofa in my local Ikea because some concealed carry asshole didn't realize his loaded pistol slipped out of his pocket when he was testing the merchandise. Thought 1: What the fuck is wrong with you. Thought 2: That could have been so much worse. Now Ikea can sell the sofa as "pre-distressed" and mark it up.

Also TIL "pocket gun"

You know what fits in your pocket, protects you from attackers, and doesn't fire bullets at random if you drop it?  Sand.

Like some kind of... pouch granules, perhaps?

I don't think you should bring sand to a gun fight.

Then again, I don't think most people who buy self-defense firearms should be bringing guns to a gunfight.

The only thing you DO want to bring to a gunfight is heavy artillery shells.

The general quality of the music was so much better in the 1960s.

I dunno about that, the 60s didn't have much in the way of heavy metal.
If you mean popular music was so much better, then yes, you are entirely correct!

I was being sarcastic, because people only remember the good stuff and forget the huge amount of terrible 60s records that were also popular.

For every Born To Be Wild quality song there were 10 "Tiptoe through the tulips" type songs that were even more popular. For every great 1960s garage rock band there were dozens that are better off forgotten.

The 90s is long enough ago that we're starting to do the same with that decade, too. But of course, during the 1990s we were all complaining that it was worse than previous decades. And during the 1970s and 1980s there was a ton of nostalgia for 50s and 60s music. It's a constant thing.

But the 60s had tons of stuff like Nimoy's Balad of Bilbo Baggins and Lorne Greene from Rawhide's Ringo. I'd take NWA any day over that kind of shit. 60s didn't have rap, but they had Country Lite, a lot of it.

There's also a Hogan's Heroes album where the cast sings old cover songs. The 1960s was not some magical time when everything done by popular people was good. There were many many musical trainwrecks back then that wouldn't ever see the light of day in this era.
