This man knows how to ride a Segway
This is the ONLY way to ride a Segway.
I know Seth MacFarlane has a reputation for being liberal and doing battle with socially conservative types, but I wonder if he knows about the bubbling left opposition to him. Family Guy has been a show steadily pandering to the, ah, more easily charmed types in terms of humor taste anyway for years now as opposed to his original audience when the show first started out, and we all know about the various social castes in this country.
Really, all of these factors should be proof alone of the rapid social and political drift the country is going through right now but whatever.
This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy.
Yeah, the treatment of Meg in Family Guy literally has ZERO context except for misogynistic-based comedic value.
The joke is on tumblr.
thinking about the latest SSC post:
I suspect Scott is massively overestimating the strength of the bubble effect because his personal bubble is pretty strong, e.g., my high school was primarily Republican, my longest relationship was with someone Red Tribe as hell, my…
Former private school student here, I know exactly the kind of white people you’re talking about: I was surrounded by them myself/arguably one of them (didn’t drink though/my gaming interests were different to get technical), although I have plenty of blue tribe residue stuck to me still after dabbling in high school and university.
And having wandered around North America for a few years, “bubble” is pretty spot-on with regards to those people/my past given the kinds of people from all walks of life I spent with during that wandering time, and dare I say it, it was probably more awkward for the different kinds of people to be with me than vice versa.
Also because it’s “my mind is jumping everywhere” night: ahahah, people on tumblr finding out precisely what Gandhi’s views were rather than the sanitized mass-market version.
I want to see these pagan “Indo-Europeans” live in Central NJ and see how they like being…
America is setting itself up for a neo-Caesar Augustus and I love it.
I’ve got demon eyes and they’re looking right through your anatomy.
I uninstalled EU4 and I already feel better. I should uninstall Steam as well but I’d probably rebound harder.
I’m curious about the context. You don’t strike me as much of a gamer regardless.
I play very few games, but the games I play, I play a lot. 30 hours a week on EU4 is unreasonable.
I quit tf2 (2000 hours) when my keyboard broke and my server list disappeared. I could spend $10 and 1 hour to fix those, but really, it gave me an excuse to quit.
I quit EU4 after my ironman save broke. I think I unpaused the game when Steam was down, and EU4 protested. Again, not the end of the world, but an excuse to quit.
Ok, understood. I sympathize: I’m a Civ V addict at the moment but one of the reasons I like it so much is because it’s far easier to actually finish games in an acceptable period of time, although I’ve been slowly turning the game into an EU variant anyway.
I brought Civ V for a friend of mine a few weeks ago during a flash sale a few weeks ago and he’s already put in more hours than me, which has weirded me out given my specific embarrassing fanboying of the game.
