This forum only has about seven references to George Romero, and no references to his best film, Martin.
I really liked Doom, though Doom 2 is strictly better.

I blew into the end of a retractable pen, and I apparently generated a ~11000Hz tone with at least 1 harmonic at ~22000Hz.

he's right though, doom 2 level design is ass, but the extra stuff is fundamentally better

If we want some related WTF/sad, it's that the Scoredoom servers went down for good.  Such a great concept, too, and I had humble aspirations to take lots of high scores, but never enough ambition to do it.

Guess I'll never have to now, eh.

Sponsored article popped up on Facebook. Normally I just ignore these things, but this one looked so batshit that I had to know more.

"Has our democracy died along with capitalism?"

Whuh

"The USA and the rest of the world hasn't had true capitalism for decades"

Uh?


So the basis of this is that capitalism is about risk. In order to make big bucks, you need to make big risks. And with how those goddamn financial elite (no really, the article mentions the "financial elite" multiple times and clearly labels them as the enemies of... Capitalism) have made themselves buddy-buddy with politicians and arranged all sorts of expense cuts and bailouts paid by the taxpayer's tab, the rich are no longer really risking anything in order to get richer, and therefore =/= capitalism.

Then the article takes a pointed attack against these goddamn financial elite richboys who control 50% of the world's resources, with their lobbying for renewable green energy and the CO2 lie and... wait... what?

Yeah, so, the enemy is in fact such megarich sneaks like Big Wind (which is still just a really funny name to me) who are manipulating the world into buying their infrastructure based on the massive marketing campaign that is global warming and "The CO2 Deception".

France, for example, is on the brink of destruction thanks to these financial elite schemes of green energy and multicultural integration and- oh, there it is. Yep. It's those gosh-darned immigrants again. They just get everywhere, don't they? Showing up in arguments where you never would have expected them to be.

Also the banks are just giving out loans willy-nilly, and if you can't pay back that loan then it's the bank who has to take the fall, which is why capitalism has failed. Because if the bank runs out of money then the government will just patch them back up again, so there's no risk. If bank bailouts didn't exist, then banks would have to start evaluating risk on loan prospects, which clearly isn't happening now and therefore it's not capitalism. And without capitalism, democracy falls as well (we are, in fact, living in something called a social dictatorship right now).


And then there's a random picture of a Tesla emergency-charging itself on the side of a road, apparently as an example of how green energy is a scam.


Here's a link to the article in case you feel like giving the loonies more clicks and translating the page from Norwegian.

I admit, it was wrong of me to give them the attention, not to mention sharing the wealth link, but staring at stuff like this is a guilty pleasure.

So, the article relies on tens of disjointed assumptions that, through some 'creative' interpretation, are glued together into "arguments" by immersing them in what appears to be hot glue? And they want these arguments to be tossed into a black box to produce the statement, "Our democracy died along with capitalism" as output?
The more I try to make sense of it, the more ill-defined the output statement(s).

It's quite simple, really:
  • The financial elite are a corrupt conglomerate of green energy moguls, who grow rich by manipulating politicians into giving them concessions paid for by taxpayers.
  • This results in bank bailouts, which makes banks carefree and anti-capitalist, causing them to hand out loans without risk assessment and requiring more bailouts as a result.
  • The large government spending on banks results in sucking money out of the non-elite, resulting in poverty.
  • We need to stop renewable energy movements in order to revive capitalism, and thereby democracy.
  • Immigrants.

Wait, what was wrong with it?
"Any attention is good attention" and all that... It's obviously a ragebait article that is intended to spread as far as possible, and by reading and mentioning it I'm helping to spread it.

I don't engage much in politics, but would it be safe to say that 'immigrants' is a Godwin-type concept? In the sense that, once mentioned in an otherwise unrelated debate, whoever said it has lost the debate because of the topic's tendency to derail the debate.

Immigrants are a major source of strife; especially in places like france.  There is valid concern over the failed assimilation of immigrants.

Yeah apparently France didn't handle the refugees so well.

But at least they tried I guess.

I'd say so, bearing in mind that Godwin's Law has become one itself; anyone trying to declare victory in a debate isn't worth debating.
