It's always a lot of fun to go out to a convention. You get out of your daily grind, get to meet some like minded peers, see fun amazing things and maybe get some silly swag.

And sadly as it ends you realize the impact it really had, and how much you really needed it in the end.

So join me in recovering from a lot of con this weekend with a nice cup of your favorite beverage or brew and talk about whatever is on our minds.

Nothing I can say a lot about here.

I did recently acquire a gift card that I am spending on actually-nice sneakers for a change, so gonna go get those on Sunday. That's about as exciting as it gets.

Ooo that does sound nice, I hope they turn out great for you


It's not often I can afford actually good quality shoes. Especially since finding anything in my size is usually a nightmare on its own. But here's hoping.

If my mother needs specific expensive medications right now that our family can't afford, is it morally justified to outright steal them?

If I need them, does this also apply to me?

What about stealing money from some third party in order to pay for them?

One problem is this thing about the social contract.

Like, it's probably acceptable to make an exception for the individual who is out of money taking a bit of food to survive. It's for their own survival and stores throw out a lot of food anyway.

But what if a group of people decides to raid stores and walk out with as many products as they can. What if a large group of people suddenly decides they are done with paying for stuff and decide they can just go out and grab whatever.
I see the videos posted of such events in the US, where the police won't intervene unless a certain threshold of value is stolen. Or not too long ago in the UK, where some group of people organised a looting event in UK stores.

I wonder what impact such a thing will have if it is not a random event that happens once in a while, but becomes a regular thing that happens all the time. That you go to the store and just see random dudes emptying out the shelves to run out the store without paying.


Yeah, were this applying to me personally in the direct sense that I've feared... I think that I may very well steal for the sake of my mother even if I've a really tense, even victimizing relationship with her previously. It'd be a matter of larger principle. People with life-threatening diseases deserve reasonable treatment in a just civilization. And I'd accept possibly getting caught, with there being punishment. I think.

You give YouTube entirely too much credit.

They will talk a big game about coming up with ways to give you control, then immediately set a barely-trained bot with a far-too-simplistic directive on the job and not even bother to lift a single molecule of a single finger when people rightfully complain about it doing a terrible job.

They have been doing this shit basically since they introduced the base concept of flagging a video for content.



There is still the 1-hour version, the 10-hour version, and "Deleted Brony Videos Archive" has already reuploaded it.

But I'm sure some of videos (especially the more obscure ones) will get lost for various reasons. The archive is better than nothing, of course, but I think YouTube should have taken a snapshot of the state of its website and search algorithm at different points in the past so its old content would be easily accessible in as close to the original way as possible. But that's not where the money is.

>Do you have either a mixed or broadly supportive relationship with your father (or, given the situation, stepfather), assuming that you know him?

>Would this possibly change in the future or does it appear 'set', in a sense?

In terms of my own life, I spent a decent evening hanging with my step-father Sunday including working out needed errand type activities, such as getting some clean laundry and picking up household items. We hugged. I'm dreading somewhat several things that will happen the rest of this week, but it's nothing to do with him.

Mixed. There's a lot of tension and personality conflicts there. We aren't friends. There's a lot about my life I keep from him.

But we've gone through a lot of shit together and supported each other. That history means something too.

With the sad somewhat yet predictable death of Volition (The creators of the Saints Row series) I would like to take us back to it's prime. Back to the good old days of 2008 when game companies cared about making a good game and when it was not just all about money and political agendas.

Saints Row 2 was so good. Ultor was great, Dane Vogel was a fantastic endgame villan as he pretty much strings you and the rest of the gangs along doing what he want's for him and all the gangs were unique and fun.

But then sadly Saints Row jumped the shark and decided the only way they could be free of being compared to Grand Theft Auto was to make everything over the top and silly and giant dildos and now you're the president of America and look now aliens have blown up the planet and you have to save Santa and now you're in hell with Satan and now the series has been rebooted and you're a bunch of young diverse and politicaly boring and safe college students getting into crime to.. Pay of students loans?

And they wonder why the series died.

Amusingly this intro which is still one of my favorite game intros summed up the fate of the saints row series and the company Volition and how it all ended and is sadly a great example of how most video games are made and run now..

"Your attitude of to hell with the community/fanbase the bottom line is all that matters"

I think a lot of games just don't have ultra-franchise potential, and you see that when they inevitably try to milk them for everything that they're worth. I look at saints row 5 and what I see is somebody being told to make a game that is saints row shaped, but not actually having anything that they can put in that saints row shaped hole. Which gets to the problem of capital driven holding companies. They acquire studios on the basis that the value of a studio is it's IPs rather than the people, tools, and institutional knowledge that made those IPs worth anything in the first place. Then, rather than using those companies for the function they've demonstrated (generating new successful products) they milk them for their existing "black lines" in the ledger until they're dead. It isn't new. It's exactly what EA was doing back in the 2000s.

Could be worse.. Could be like Ultor and ended up going to Mars to colonize that instead

In case you did not know prior to Saints Row 4 so Saints Row 1, 2 and 3 are set in the same canon and Universe as the Red Faction games in which in the future the very same Ultor is busy enslaving humans on the planet Mars


Welp, he's dead.

Pour one out and blast it for old timey sake and all that.

K-Pop group with a bit of a J-Rock influence. Definitely on the louder side. And they have Handong,which makes them top tier.

>how did you come to love kpop so much
Got hooked on the music videos and the choreography. The physical albums are fun to collect too, but I haven't gotten too much into photocard collecting. The albums just look nice on a shelf.

Oh. You should definitely go again. Before you turn elderly. I figure I'll probably stop between 35 and 40.

Yo. How is GETchan? I'm always kind of afraid to go there because of the bot thing.

I'm just really freaking happy <3
I mean I'm trying to go as much as I can to learn, but I'm not going like...going fanatical with it. Honestly outside of wearing a low key necklace because it has sentimental value for me (it was a very important gift), no one really knows unless I tell them.

It was actually a very big fear of mine for a long while, and probably why I kept shying away so much throughout my life. I only had bad experiences and seeing the harm it had done, and it wasn't until I finally met very good, loving, respectful people that are respectful of other peoples beliefs and cultures that I was finally able to see a different side of things and be like, "okay. This is right for me."

But yea, I am trying to keep to a stricter schedule right now just to learn more, but other than that I don't do a whole lot. It already aligned with my moral values, so the only thing I'm personally trying to do is live a less...self hate life.

I have to wonder
people who do martial arts as a hobby, or those that do martial arts competitively, don't they ever get hurt / bust themselves up regularly while competing with their peers?

Doesn't that kinda suck?

I hear there's youtubers challenging eachother to get together in the boxing ring for charity or something. And they're like "It's a healthy way to fight it out, it's good exercise and it's for charity"
But if there's any chance I dislocate my jaw or break my nose, I'd rather nope out of it.

I was thinking this. But make sure you know and follow all of your country/state's self-defense rules, etc. so you don't get in trouble ~

nobody wants that, but through proper training and experience, you learn do that better, not be in that situation, and be a lot more comfortable in discomfort

having a firearm for self defense is fine, and can definitely help in certain situations for sure. that being said, it's still a tool that requires it's own type of training and mindset, and is not the "instant win" situation that many make it out to be.

granted, you should never mess with a person with a gun for obvious reasons,as well as just psychological fear inducing to whoever you are facing, as it's a clear advantage on neutral ground beyond 5 yards no question. but within a certain range, somebody can still run in and disarm you if they are trained to do so, and if you aren't able to maneuver your gun in that short amount of time, then you can still be overpowered quite easily.

plus, there will be times you don't have access to a firearm, but there is never a time you don't have access to your arms and legs. so learning martial arts is always gonna be of service to you and your ability to defend yourself

plus outside of self defense, it's one of the best ways to stay in shape, and is very meditative, so very good for mental health.
