  4. Oh great, I shared that Joe Rogan article I posted on my Facebook, and now some girl I used to know but haven't spoken to since I took a one year course with her back in 2009 is messaging me going, "then you aren't listening" and "you're angry because Joe is famous and smart enough to have credible people on who cite their sources", "you need to research on where you're getting your false information". Ugh. I remember her posting more right wing stuff lately, even posting support for Maxime Bernier during the last election. The world would be a better place if fewer people listened to Joe Rogan.

  5. I'm pretty much all better now, just some slight congestion which honestly might be due to the winter weather. My dad who is in his mid 70s got it late last week and had even milder case than me and mine was essentially a cold, he is also fully vaxxed and boosted.

  6. Our district bumped pay for subs to a whole $125/day for those with bachelors. They're having such a hard time finding people that the transportation literally called us this morning offering to pay US $20/day if we'd pick up my oldest from school, ourselves. In totally unrelated news, my wife, a special needs teacher, quit. Being a teacher sucks right now. She was killing herself playing multiple roles due to a lack of staff and not great pay. Nothing like getting home and working hours into the night on her own dime. It was so much that it was actually affecting her health. She was offered a 30% raise to be a residential therapist at a boarding school, so that's an easy choice to make.

  8. It's a red herring anyhow because the GOP is pretty far along on its project of just outright stealing every single election.

  9. You could say the same thing about previously unknown things like hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin though; the crazies always find seemingly random things and latch on to them. I can easily see someone of that persuasion being encyclopedic in their vocabulary (especially since the ‘I did my own research’ crowd probably sees vocabulary as a proxy for being knowledgeable about it).

  13. I guess it's time for an update! I've hit my initial goal of once again fitting into my suits! In fact, the pants are fitting a bit loose around my waist and the jackets are fitting a little snug around my shoulders which pleases me greatly! As for my waist, I'm back down to 34" which is exactly where I wanted to be by the end of January/middle of February so I'm a bit ahead of schedule. For all practical purposes, this means that I can ease up a bit on the two-a-day workouts while completely maintaining the 16/8 intermittent fasting schedule and the restricted diet. But most importantly, I can start playing videogames again as I'd decided to put my preferred hobby on hold while I got my physical conditioning back to where I wanted it to be! Funnily enough, I'm back to exactly where I was about two years ago when I made this thread: What REALLY pisses me off is that I was doing freakin' great until the Most Boring/Stupidest Apocalypse Ever COMPLETELY derailed my progress I sure as hell ain't gonna let that happen again!

  18. It's not too hard to decipher roughly how much indies matter to Nintendo. Look at the last investor report. They break down that digital game sales make up ~23-24% of their revenue. During a period where they do not have a major first party releases, download only software, add-on content, and Nintendo Switch Online make up about 50% of that total. (When they do have a first party release, it's more like 40%) So all digital only releases make up ~10% of their sales. They don't break that down any further, but the images they used showed Nintendo Switch Online, the Smash Bros Fighters pass, and one indie game. If I were to take a complete guess, I'd wager that indie games make up at most 50% of that number. So all indie games combined probably make up a maximum of 5% of their revenue (when they don't have a major title releasing), but likely it's closer to 3% or less. However, it's probably even less important to them than that. Even if it's 5% of their revenue, it doesn't move the other numbers at all. When they release one big game, their hardware and software sales jump up so much that it dwarfs nearly every other concern.

  20. No no no, no “back on topic” coming from you. You wanna die on the most moronic hill of all time? This isn’t ending until the damn hill is named after you. Hence forth…Taking the completely asinine view that Nintendo’s success has anything to do with anything other than Nintendo’s first party software, shall now be known as……….Taking a Crispy

  25. The problem is that DeSantis is trying to run by out Trumping Trump. I still see little chance that his voters will go for New Coke if they can just pick Coke. While an aspect of Trumpism is basically just the principle of being as wrong and horrible as possible on every issue(which DeSantis can copy and possibly even try to outdo Trump) part of Trump's weird appeal was his name recognition and celebrity. Which is much harder to copy. Remember, part of his "populist" appeal was this name recognition. Like him or not, he brought in people that wouldn't normally vote. Not only is that hard for DeSantis to copy, his status as a politician(even a Trumpian demagogue) might be antithetical to it. People liked Trump because he was "honest" I've said since the day after the election that if the GOP wanted to stop Trump they needed to immediately hop on him as a weak loser that lost a winnable election. And the window of opportunity on that was very small. Would have had to do it within weeks of the loss. A year later, they've obviously made the exact opposite choice. And so I don't really see him whining about the election as a weakness. Indeed, it is a strength for him. Because it has become party heresy to deny that he won. If DeSantis comes out now and tries to say Trump is a losing loser it will be treated almost like a Republican coming out in favor of late term abortions. Trump has been very effective at turning his personal desires into the party line. And ultimately, what exactly is your pitch to beat Trump if your public statements enthusiastically insist he overwhelmingly won two elections? If anything, you should just be happy that the party has the good fortune to run him for a third term that he is a shoo-in to win if only the vote is fair! I remain convinced that only a random act of cholesterol will save us from Trump definitely winning the nomination and a >50% chance that he wins another term. #teamcheeseberder
