Random non sequitur posts catch-all thread

One or two incidents are understandable. However a line has been crossed.

I call forth all of my banners. Destroy all with exoskeletons, burn their homes and drive them from this land.

This is war.

That is my "Spiders in the bathroom" policy, yes.

I just gave an old metal chair to the local ‘rag and bone’ man. It feels like profession that’s survived from another era. They come round the neighbourhood calling, “Rag ‘n’ bone! Any old iron!!”

I made a short list of games I am interested in for 2022. Let's be real I am only playing 3 or 4 of these max. Seems like I crawled through the game drought only to find too many choices.

August:
Soul hackers 2
Cult of the lamb
Spiderman pc

September:
Steel rising

October:
Persona 5 pc
Midnight suns
Bayonetta 3

November:
Harvestella

Yeah luckily I've played 2 if those on PS4/5 already.

But Midnight Suns oh yeah. Gotta have it.

I'm on record as having quite enjoyed playing Cyberpunk 2077. But there is one thing about it that I really, really, really hate, and that's that, due to its' popularity, in internet searches the game has replaced the entire genre it's based on.

Like, I love the genre and I am trying to do some of my recent sketches based on its world, but it's incredibly annoying that, when I go searching for inspiration or reference, and I type in, say, "Cyberpunk Hacker," instead of the preceding thirty years of design and concept art, the first 150 results are all sh*t from the goddamn game, which, again, I quite liked! But I hate that, since it's got the exact same name, it is now what every search engine assumes you mean when you say "Cyberpunk."

Also, today in PR Releases:

I got one about a shoe made from defective dildoes.

I am not making a single syllable of that up. Seriously.

Can you put a -2077 on the search to eliminate pages that mention the game?

I was just coming here to suggest searching for: cyberpunk hacker -game -2077

That seems to clean it up quite nicely.

OHTHANKGOD thank you. Christ.

It's not even that I don't like the designs in the game! I just don't want it to be the first 5,000 results.

The Plastic Soul by Rose In Good Faith evokes the energy of sustainability, sexual freedom, and purpose.

Marketing team got some ballz to go with those dildoes

Actual text I received today: "And the cat just barfed in the toaster ."

I’m kinda worried about what came before the “and”

Going for a short 15-minute run in this heat may not have been my best idea. I don't think I've ever been this sweaty outside of a sauna.

Just reading about cyanobacteria and was wondering if it was the most destructive living thing to ever exist on Earth.

Worse than humans?

The were responsible for killing off 99% of all life on Earth some billions of years ago. They are the reason we have oxygen and oxygen was toxic to most things living on Earth then.

I think I just heard the human race say, “hold my beer”. We ain’t coming in #2 to a tiny little bug or something like that.

In the winter, the great thing about my apartment is that it does an amazing job holding heat.

In the summer, the most god-awful, terrible thing about my apartment is that it does an amazing job holding heat.

The digital thermometer I bought said it was 90 degrees when I got home. INDOORS. With nothing on. And windows open.

NINETY.

(And sadly, since all my windows are on one side of the building I live in, I pretty much get zilch crossbreeze in here unless it's a damn tornado outside.)

Without knowing how hot it is outside, that number is meaningless. I live in the godforsaken desert, and I'd be ecstatic if it were only 90 inside if I'd left the windows open all day.

79 and insanely humid, when I got home last night.

Baldurs gate 3 is so good and I love the new systems but I have to make myself stop playing because I want the best version of the story to be my first play through. I am going to be sad tonight and probably uninstall it tomorrow.

I had been broadly disinterested in it, due to totally bouncing off of Divinity 2 and Larian's style previously.

But i'm replaying Divinity 2 now and enjoying it a pretty good deal more (although the story has left me completely cold) so I am interested in BG3, but like you, I'm not gonna pick it up until it's, y'know, done.

Listening to the 1992 countdown rewind on SiriusXM. I still don't understand Achy Breaky Heart being a crossover hit. There is nothing pop about it, so damn country. Ugh.

Cannot listen to synthwave when the sun is up. It just doesn't work during daylight hours.

I need to stop refreshing the order status page for my new Mac. It won't make it arrive sooner.

I am so so so sad about David Warner's passing.

Among countless others, he had two powerhouse Star Trek roles.

That's an awful loss. I would make a joke about reaching his END OF LINE, but he deserves better.
