The Flood / Re: job interview today
« on: Today at 03:50:29 AM »
I interviewed for McDonald's years ago, they basically want a drone. Asked me questions like how I felt about cleaning bathrooms or if I had previous work experience.

What do they ask for in the job interview for a fast food restaurant? Your general traits and stuff?

You're going to hate me for it but: Final Fantasy IX

Gameplay felt really slow and the story just couldn't keep me hooked. All the while I really didn't enjoy it visually, the art style wasn't very appealing. If it looked more like what the fanart portrays it as I might have been able to get behind it but it just felt like a step back for the series TBH.

So after a week after being back in the high 70s during the day and mid 60s during the night, it's going back and forth daily from really fucking cold to Meh. It's kinda frustrating cause I'm constantly fighting with my brother over the thermostat cause I'm not letting him turn the heater on so we can conserve energy. He wouldn't let me keep the thermostat at 74 during the summer cause "his room was too cold" cause he didn't want to close the vent so I don't want to hear any shit now.

KoTH was truly TV Kino.

My sentiment is echoed by the #1 authority on grilling steaks

I guess you can say Politics, but in my day to day life that still doesn't affect me. I can do all these things without have to be involved in politics.

what do you think gives you the right to do all of these things

I wake up, shower and and get ready for the day, have breakfast, drive to work, do work, occasionally have fun with coworkers, come home, cook dinner, feed the cats, go to bed.

Wow so political.

stick your head in the sand all you want. politics inform every single aspect of life

For whatever reason, fish has a tendency to make me feel God awful I’ll. It seems that when it comes to meat, if it doesn’t have legs it makes me sick.

Buy some fish instead, steak is trash

Is 343 still carrying on with these writers? Are they bringing back older people for writing? I don't think the old guard can salvage this.

I got about half way before things going on IRL prevented me from finishing (February of 2014 if you remember) and I never got around to finishing it because work/school kept me busy. I reinstalled the VN on my new computer but I have a fuck huge backlog of other games I want to complete first before getting back into it. I do know some of the ending to HF though, and I'm not very happy with the "proper" endings.

That might as well as be as bad as such.
Did you ever get around to actually reading Heavan's Feel and hopefully understanding the whole thematic progression of the VN?

A more interesting story/plot.

Who was the antagonist of Halo 5?


I played the Fate route first and watched F/Z in tandem while going through the UBW route.

Oh right

I forgot you were a zero secondary.

Serious / Seattle's Sugary Drink Tax
« on: January 11, 2018, 10:54:15 AM »


>Seattle implements a $1.75 per ounce tax on sugary drinks
>Tax is designed to drop obesity in the city and increase revenue for other health programs
>A $16 24 pack of Gatorade is now $27
>People are now going outside the city to buy their drinks
>Beer/alcohol sales have also increased
>No evidence that taxing sugary drinks heavily has ever killed obesity (such as with Mexico)


>I live literally on the opposite end of the country from Seattle
>My local Publix is doing a buy-1-get-1-free on 8-packs of Powerade
>I walk out with 48 bottles of Powerade for about $14
>Not obese

UBW is incredibly fucking slow, with a lot of buildup leading to no pay off. There's only one or two really good fights in the entire show and the rest of it is just incredibly boring exposition on character motives. I'm pretty sure UBW only got the praise it did because people viewed that route in the VN with rose tinted glasses. Looks back on it, it was incredibly fucking boring.

But it wasn't.

UBW was written with F/Z in mind. Deen Stay Night starts out on solid footing like the VN but then jumbles up all three routes into one and turns into a coherent mess, all while not delving into the back story (that would later become F/Z).

Meaning what?

Black Panther is expected to be stronger at the Box Office than Thor Ragnarok was.

Black Panther is surprisingly good

There's definitely a good number of shows under the Fate belt, but if you had to go with one I strongly recommend Fate/Zero because it was handled way better than both versions of F/SN. It's also less tropey/cliche than F/SN even if it has its own fair share of problems.

fate is not a series i want to fuck with for a while

mainly because of this shit

Most people can get on with their day to day lives without getting involved with politics. Hell, even with the absolute awful state of game journalism, I can enjoy video games without politics getting involved. Things that aren't normally political only get political if you want them too, and unlike SOME individuals, most people don't want politics consuming their life.

but it is

Both adaptations of F/SN are awful but UBW is at least more coherent to F/Z.

No, if he's going to do Deen stay night he should do that before Zero.

Verb put Fate/Zero before Fate/Stay Night, it's much better for beginners.

Ironic isn't it? The one person who actually has The Walt Disney Company printed on his paystub gets enjoyment out of shitting all over their movies.

Is the picture still floating around? Genuinely curious to see it.

just a fun little thing, and the picture was taken ironically, but people thought i was genuinely trying to look cool or something
