there is so much going on in dishonored 2 it kinda makes my head hurt

the problem with being a developer is that i see shit and im like "yep thats a default unity quirk" and it completely takes me out of it. i bet this happens to people who work on movies

i think i figured out why oxygen not included is rubbing me the wrong way, its that everything about it screams default unity UI at me and it makes me wish i was playing dwarf fortress instead

@georgespolitzer ok i just looked up the lyrics and its not even subtle, damn

@geesehoward heretofore unseen levels of mad online were reached during the snouts implosion, now that it has happened we have returned to regular levels

@dankwraith this is clearly pro-taxes graffiti. they were so excited about getting taxed they said it three times

on the one hand, i know that anger about high taxation has literally led to the downfall of kingdoms, on the other hand i also know that being primarily mad about taxes in the 21st century means you have boomer brain

dishonored 2 is cool but i straight up laughed when i saw graffiti that was just the words TAXES TAXES TAXES TAXES

@geesehoward this is why i cant play this game, i would just need to get my ass kicked 2000 times in a row to get a feel for the inputs

@garfield actually it would mean i could get programmer super powers like neo from the matrix so it is important.

philosophy isnt just navel gazing thought experiments, when Angela Davis asks "are prisons obsolete?" she is doing philosophy. the ideas we are capable of thinking are shaped by how we are raised and they are changed by exposing unstated assumptions and asking pointed questions. thats all philosophy is really imo

@dankwraith kant is a fucking coward, I'll fight his ghost. ill trick him by saying "no, kant's ghost, I'd never lie, I wont chokeslam you"

im not saying you have to go read kant but i think if ethics it was as easy as just deciding to act nice we would have figured it out by now
