Short answer: an uninhabitable hellscape made of steam and boiling blueberry jam.

May be an image of text that says 'Sorely missed Victorian slang: 8. Gigglemug (always smiling) 7. Bitch the pot (pour the tea) 6. Got the morbs (temporary sadness) 5. Tight as a boiled owl (drunk) 4. Poked up (embarrassed) 3. Sauce-box (the mouth) 2. Cupid's kettle drums (breasts) 1.Not up to dick (unwell)'

"I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

Set in the United Kingdom, the player is tasked with killing former prime minister Margaret Thatcher, who has risen from the dead.'

Imagine if the government put half as much effort into averting the prospect of potential nuclear war with Russia as they do when it comes to relentlessly jabbing everyone with EUA injections that do not even stop us from getting sick or spreading the virus! A virus that probably more than half the population has already had, anyway.

 

EDIT: Yep!

I don't buy into antivaxx whaargarble, sorry. I understand the science.

Significantly more balanced and less hysterical coverage can be found here, for instance.

The big entertainment companies don't want people obtaining the content they produce from random places on the web for free. So in order to combat that trend, they have created a world where you cannot even keep the digital content that you actually bought from them!

Can't argue with logic like this!

40 out of 30 customers agree, nothing makes us want to buy more, than knowing what we already bought, can and will just be arbitrarily revoked and taken away by the seller at any time for any reason.

the users dont own anything, it is all leased with a wording that implies ownership but in reality it can all be taken away on a moments notice if the powers that be decide it (sad truth but the truth non the less), in the end most wont be hit by that fact cause in the end when we die we loose it all anyway 😉

Oh another famous quote to add to my list from the man who also said "Human dreams... such fertile ground for the seeds of torment." 😁

Anybody who has been playing the IT game for more than a few years, knows all the rules by now.

 

1. Big companies do not take "No" for an answer.

2. They always seem to find a way to get their hands on information that they should not have, in one way or another.

3. Enter the phony apology, and the meaningless fines that are a drop in the bucket.

      Anyone here played Inscryption? At first, I was like "no, I am not going to play a stupid card game", but this game is so much more than that. It is so meta, full of 4th wall breaks, and feels so damn spooky and weird because of it. Absolutely recommended, if you can stand the visuals. I recommend not reading up too much on it, as that could easily spoil half the incredible surprises. Just know that what you see in the beginning is by far not everything.

      Tried to make a tdm advertisement commentpost at one of civvie11 youtube videos about T2. Post got marked as spam. His problem (to not discover TDM for himself),..not my problem.
      But some help of some fellow TDM yt-videocomment posters would be nice. To ask him and others, to play TDM. To get more players/creators.

      Currently Profile Information has 3 fields, these are shown in forum posts under your avatar:
      1. Gender
      2. Location
      3. Interests
      I think that it could be useful to have an extra field called "Operating system" (under location). It can be useful for tech support and to see what people use.
      Alternatively it could be a more general term, like PC system, so that you can for example state that you use an AMD gpu.
